All the craziness is down to science

Another day another bit of bad news that the manufacturers of their own reality can ignore.


As their passive aggressive apology was saying

The other day “Teen Beat on the Hudson“ reported that a group of “young Republican Activists” unleashed a study demonstrating that the GOP needs to get over their bigotry so they can move on to the important task of grinding the poor into a fine paste.

Knowin’ how to pick ‘em continued

Yesterday I posted about how former Senator, freak, and current Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint managed to put out a factually laughable immigrant bashing report put together in large part by a bigot.

But the bigot, Jason Redwine, is so much, so very much more.

Knowin’ how to pick ‘em

James DeMint resigned from the Senate (as a representative of South Carolina) some months ago — so he could get a big pay raise to be the head of the conservative Heritage Foundation.

What better place to be rewarded with seven-figures at a think tank, when this is your big thought.

Truly bringing out the intellectual firepower

Over the years National Review has regularly rolled out really powerful arguments such as “We must defend the Southern Way of Life“; “White Men Only“; “I Dream of a Shirtless Mitt Romney“; “I’m too busy to understand what I say?”; “Why are the pages of my GOP Platform Sticking Together?” and, of course, “Beyond Thunderdome“.

But none may ever match the glory of Kathryn Lopez’s plan to eliminate the need for gay marriage.

Hard to believe that Tucker Carlson’s Vanity project is wrong again, huh?

A couple of months ago a videotape surfaced on the Daily Caller website in which a Dominican Republic woman claimed that New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez had been in her nation and subscribed for the Rush Limbaugh Sex Tourist Package.

Late Night: Take This Job and Shove It

Perhaps out of a combination of peevishness and thirst, John Boehner recently blurted out, “I need this job like I need a hole in my head.”  Of course, the job he was complaining about, Speaker of the House, third in line for the Presidency, happens to be well-paid, prestigious, and quite evidently can be performed, after a fashion, even when drunk.  That is, it’s decidedly not like the jobs that the vast majority of Americans toil away at, should they be lucky enough to have a job at all. 

There’s also no off switch on “crazy”

Maybe, just maybe, Jim DeMint is not crazy — but rather just an opportunist who sees a chance of a seven-figure salary where he doesn’t have to suck up to rich douchebags anymore — because now he’ll be the rich douchebag being sucked up to.

“Project on” you crazy diamonds

Having overwhelmingly lost the vote of women, especially single women, in 2012, the “intellectuals” at FoxNews have devised a cunning plan. Make sure they lose them even worse by saying societies ills, such as they imagine them, can be laid at the feet of all the single ladies.

Editor Admits That Josh Treviño Just Hired To Fill Tasteless Fascist Void

By: Wednesday August 22, 2012 1:10 pm

Right wing writer Josh Treviño landed a contributor job at The Guardian, but when dozens of readers complained about his hackery, the management responded that they needed someone who understood the right wing mind. Really.
