Out of Thin Air

The group Americans for Prosperity — funded by the Koch brothers — is taking heat for several deceptive negative campaign ads they are running. In Louisiana, they are running attack ads against Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu. The ad features a number of people who appear to be Louisiana residents, receiving letters telling them that their […]

Paul Ryan and Ronald Reagan are not Conservative Enough!

The GOP has gone off the deep end. There is no other way to report this than with humor, and Jon Stewart is the best.

Racist? Part 2

Well, if they aren’t racist, then the only other possibility is that they are incredibly naive and stupid.

Not-Plausible Deniability

As Jon Stewart hilariously points out, the same Republican masterminds who fostered and encouraged the Tea Party to take control of the Republican party are now complaining about the monster they created. So, how short is our attention span? Unfortunately, their strategy might just work.

Jon Stewart on the Shutdown

Awesome quote: In response to the new Republican talking point that “the President will negotiate with the Iranians, but not with Republicans”. Jon responds “If it turns out that president Barack Obama can make a deal with the most intransigent, hard-line, unreasonable, totalitarian Mullahs in the world, but not with Republicans, maybe he’s not the […]

Shutdown?

© Adam Zyglis Even some Republicans are standing up to Ted Cruz and his efforts to shut down the government. Which is difficult for them, since right-wing groups have punished severely any GOP politician who dares to vote the same way as Obama (even on a health care bill that was originally a conservative idea).
