Rush “Viagra Man” Limbaugh tees off on contraception

There are a lot of things that piss me off about what’s going on in this country. But few have pissed me off as much as Susan G. Komen for the Cure with its de-funding of Planned Parenthood. The Komen foundation… Read More ›
Rick, Mitt and Newt. Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk.
I don’t know about you, but at least when Michele Bachmann was still in the hunt I found some comic relief in the GOP clusterfuck of presidential politics. Not anymore. Now we’re left to endure three of the biggest asshats… Read More ›

Another crackpot for Christ
There are tons of right-wing Christian bullshit artists out there. And then there’s Cindy Jacobs. She’s not just a bullshit artist. Jesus H. Christ on a pogo stick, she’s a full-fledged crackpot Christian nut cake. I’m not sure I’ve seen… Read More ›

Mitt Romney a progressive? You must be joking.
In case you hadn’t heard, Mitt Romney is a moderate with progressive views. He’s also not partisan. At least that’s what he told us in 2002. I don’t know about you, but I completely missed that about him even then…. Read More ›

The Crazy-ass Christians are at it again!

Grab the Bible, Martha! The GOP is back in power!
You know, I’m as fun-loving as the next person. I like a good joke. But I do not like bad jokes, and that’s what the GOP-led House of Representatives has become. The GOP (Goons on Parade) took back the House… Read More ›
