Doktor Zoom Is the pseudonym of Marty Kelley, who lives in Boise, Idaho. He acquired his nym from a fan of Silver-Age comics after being differently punctual to too many meetings. He is not a medical doctor, although he has a real PhD (in Rhetoric and Composition). He loves upvoting your comments but Disqus is broken and his upvotes don't "stick." Just assume he upvoted what you said, because it was excellent and witty.
That guy is such a jerk

The Supreme Court deadlocked in an immigration case, effectively killing off President Obama's 2014 executive action on immigration. Get ready for drunks to start trying to enforce the decision with crowbars.

Paul Ryan said he wouldn't dwell on the shocking lack of decorum in the House by Democrats who were staging a sit-in to call attention to gun violence. Then he very indecorously dismissed the action as a "publicity stunt" for the sole purpose of raising funds.
Who needs facts when you've got charm?

Donald Trump is going to be incredibly ready for his debates with Hillary Clinton, although he hasn't started preparing for them yet. September is FOREVER away.
Oh god, Wonkette's bringing out the kittens

Rightwing blogs went crazy with stories of a 'gang rape' by 'Syrian refugees' that turned out to be mostly paranoid rumor. So when authorities clarified what happened, obviously that was part of the cover-up, too.
That works for political careers and reputations, too.

All the lies, none of the energy.

Donald Trump gave a speech about Hillary Clinton, and thanks to the miracle of Twitter, it was fact-checked to pieces while in progress.
Not as fun as a new car :(

Yet another state program to test welfare recipients for drugs has found no drug fiends getting welfare. Clearly, the answer is tougher drug tests.
Really can't go wrong with this pic. Or the corndog.

Donald Trump went and got himself a bunch of top rightwing Christian thought leaders to join his newly-announced 'evangelical advisory board.' He got Michele Bachmann, too.
Gary Larson did it better. But Trump IS a vulture...

Donald Trump is questioning Hillary Clinton's faith. And her commitment to Sparkle Motion.
Those Trump Steaks won't eat themselves

Trump hats: 2017's top garage sale item

Donald Trump's campaign is in complete disarray. But...what if it isn't?
It's a plausible theory, at least

We've got Bundyite sovereign citizens, liars, and racists against the Bears Ears national monument proposal. Hell, all we need now is some good old-fashioned ratfucking.
Free kitten with every five mass shootings

Oh good, the Senate is finally going to appear to do something about guns, and then fail. Then we can go back to having our real gun laws dictated to the states by the NRA, as the Founders intended.
Is it scary that it's spreading, or reassuring we're not the only country with loons?

The UK has been taken over by looneybirds!
Look at all those magazines! Or are they clips?

The Supreme Court has declined to hear appeals to laws banning the sale or possession of assault-style rifles in Connecticut and New York. Guess that issue's settled, then.
Just because you hear me saying things is no reason to listen to me.

Donald Trump clarified Monday that it was completely obvious that he never said people should carry guns at bars and nightclubs, even if it sure sounded like he'd said that. Where would you get such an impression, except from the things he said?
