Here are three presidential candidates who are cool with killing gay people

Senator, disturbingly viable presidential candidate, and all-around turd in the Senate punch bowl Ted Cruz says you can’t be POTUS if you’re not religious: Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Friday that he believes anyone who wants to be president must fear God and pray daily. Speaking at the National Religious Liberties Conference in Iowa, Cruz… Continue reading Here are three presidential candidates who are cool with killing gay people

Today in Republicans who haven’t read the Constitution

President Bobby Jindal (please stop laughing) is planning a really big surprise when he takes office: he’s going to fire Congress. Citing the fact that Republicans in Congress have not yet defunded Planned Parenthood and were unable to block the Iran nuclear deal, he said, “It’s ridiculous.

Reaping the whirlwind

I’d be offended at Iowa audiences calling Bobby Jindal an “anchor baby” (he’s not) if the whole “anchor baby” phenomenon weren’t a product of the dankest parts of the right-wing conspiracy fever swamp that Jindal and his fellow Republicans have been cultivating for the past four decades plus.

Politically correct appeasers demand Bobby Jindal prove his insane claims because fascism, I guess

Bobby Jindal doesn’t have facts to back this up… but “no-go zones” are all over the place in Europe, and it’s a nightmare. Neighborhoods where women can’t go unveiled! Districts where police refuse to enforce the real law, where the only law is that dangerous sherbet law that the Mohammedans follow! Right in the heart… Continue reading Politically correct appeasers demand Bobby Jindal prove his insane claims because fascism, I guess

There may not be any “no go zones” in Paris, but there is at least one “no brain zone” on cable TV

We’re getting a real-time lesson in how to spin a wingnut conspiracy tale out of literally nothing. It all started in the aftermath of last week’s Paris terrorist attacks, when dangerously unhinged weekend Fox News host Jeanine Pirro welcomed terrorism analyst Steven Emerson on her Sunday program to talk about The Brown Menace in Europe.… Continue reading There may not be any “no go zones” in Paris, but there is at least one “no brain zone” on cable TV
