So you all remember Tom Perkins, right? He is the bazillionaire who is afraid that all the little people will go full-Nazi and holocaust all the rich people, because it was his turn to make the “just like Hitler” reference of the day. While he has since said that maybe, perhaps, the holocaust analogy went […]

Hey Maine Governor Paul LePage! How is your state doin’? You wanna brag on it some? Oh, you want to say that Mainers are a bunch of goddamn hobos, layin’ around waiting for their welfare checks so they can buy some lobstah? That sounds like an excellent way to stop having to do the boring […]

As the GOP War On Food Stamps rolls on this summer, Bloomberg.com has released a report looking at the political makeup of areas where food stamp rolls have expanded. Here’s a bit of a “surprise”: Among the 254 counties where food stamp recipients doubled between 2007 and 2011, Republican Mitt Romney won 213 of them […]

We can’t rule out, regarding this tweet above that posits the unlikely claim that His Lord High … fuck it, Mitt Romney … is “concerned” about the growing wealth gap, the possibility that Romney was talking about the shocking disparities in life opportunity between millionaires and billionaires.

Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com So, Mr. O’Reilly here is really cheesed at You People for calling him a racist. All he did was point out that Barack Obama was reelected by a bunch of poor nonwhite people who want productive white Americans to give them All The Things, and then people started calling […]

Mitt Romney was lonely. A week after the election, and all anybody was laughing at was Karl Rove and Fox News and Dick Morris and Gallup, and people had kind of forgotten Mitt himself, the onetime standard-bearer of the GOP. Had he himself not shit the bed? Was he not the master of his own […]

As Click & Clack will tell you, it’s the stingy man who ends up paying most, and apparently it’s as true of governing as car repairs! And apparently also, Mitt Romney, as governor of Massachusetts, was quite the Scrooge when it came to building levees and other flood control for his state! Here is a […]

In the distant past — a couple hours ago? — we saw on the Tweeter that utter douche Paul Ryan had done some stupid photo-op at a soup kitchen where breakfast had already been served and the dishes already washed. But never one to let a 15-minute investment be for naught, he picked up a […]

Chronic zipper-fumbling opportunist Herman Cain, possibly smelling blood in the water, briefly resurfaced late last week to tell reporters covering his speech at the University of Florida that he would likely have a “substantial lead” over President Obama if he’d been the Republican nominee. As our recent review of a book advocating Southern secession indicates, […]

As it turns out, we need not see what was in those missing two minutes of video from Romney Gone Wild: 47% Of His Clothes Off. Willy Mittens is now declaring the video “debunked and selectively edited” for some reason. Romney campaign is now referring to the fundraiser video as “a debunked and selectively edited […]

Struggling filmmaker James O’Keefe has some thoughts on Mother Jones’ home movies of the day Mitt Romney united the nation. And in his considered opinion, Mother Jones’ unnamed source may have BROKEN A LAW.

Favored Romney surrogate (because Mr. Manager Mitt Romney makes the greatest and classiest personnel decisions) John Sununu opened his wobbly old turkey mouth and said some more stupid shit today, because it is “a day.” Sure, His Lord High Hairgel got in a wee spot of bother by explaining exactly how 47 percent of the […]

Oh, Mitt Romney, Mitt Romney. You know how you can tell that you’ve really stepped in it? A tiny hint of evidence that your problems go well past not being “elegantly stated”? One big hint would be when Conservative Icon William Kristol calls your comments “stupid and arrogant.” Another might be when the terminally equitable […]

Soooo, we’re all agreed that Miffed Romney has, is currently, and will continue to … how the French say … shit the bed? Oui. His campaign has been so bad — so terrible — that we talked to more than one New Yorker who mistily evinced a longing for the dignified reign of George W. […]

Hello, babies. This is Mitt Romney’s newest ad. It speaks to the greatest fear of white newborns everywhere: their share of the American debt, coupled with the fear of unemployment in 18-22 years, give or take. (Although why this literal teat-sucker is opposed to becoming a figurative teat-sucker later on, I do not know.) Oh, […]
