Pop quiz time! (If you need to review last week’s lesson, you may.) Here is an actual review question from our 8th-grade American History textbook from Christian publisher A Beka, America: Land I Love (2006): “What Communist leader toured America in 1990?” Now, you filthy liberals may think the correct answer would be Mikhail Gorbachev, […]

Former Fort Smith (Arkansas) Police Department officer Naaman Adcock seems to have a bit of an anger management problem, we think. On Tuesday, he and his wife, Tabatha, were arrested at their Sequoyah County home after a drunken altercation in which both Adcocks fired shots inside the single-wide and Mr. Adcock reportedly held a gun […]

You know what’s tough? Having gay marriage crammed down your throat. It’s uncomfortable if you are not used to it (just breathe through your nose). But what if there was a reacharound workaround that could un-cram that gay marriage? It would have to be completely illogical and a legal stretch, but hey, we think that […]

Open wide, Idaho, because we’re cramming some big gay homo marriage right down your throat! (Try relaxing your jaw and breathing through your nose.) Late Tuesday a federal judge in Boise struck down Idaho’s gay marriage ban, declaring a referendum passed in 2006 that enshrined the principle of one-heterosexual-man-one-heterosexual-woman marriage in the state constitution out […]

Hey, remember that fat white guy who lost weight and now wants to put the ‘white’ back in White House? No, not the one what closes bridges because of petty political bickering — the other GOP white guy, the one who rocks out on gee-tar. Yeah, Mike Huckabee. He is back in the news because […]

Welcome to a special Labor Day edition of picked-up pieces, a baggy collection of stories that were too stoopid to ignore altogether, but that we couldn’t quite manage a full post on. Or just didn’t wanna. At the top of the list, Tucker Carlson snoozing on the set of Fox & Friends, because there’s really […]

Lots of state legislatures, those cute little incubators of democracy, have suggested that teachers pack heat because post-Newtown you can’t be too careful, you know. Most people have been too scared to pull the trigger on this genius plan, but not the good folks of Clarksville High School in Arkansas, who will be letting their […]

We all have family members who are fuck-ups, right? Uncle Larry who gives a creepy smile to the 14-year-old cousins at the family reunion, or Aunt Peg who has four DUIs. Back in Biblical times, the sins of family were sometimes used to punish innocent people. But that was long ago when people still believed […]

We for one would like to know a little bit more about Arkansas Dem lady treasurer Martha Shoffner, and why she is IN JAIL! Like, the story is all “Oh the FBI says she is extortin’ the people,” but maybe it is a theft of honest services kind of extortin’? Which last we heard the […]

Well this is a nice change of pace! For once, a GOP newsletter has made its own news not by printing pictures of watermelon patches on the White House lawn, or calling for beheading Democrats, but by switching it up and calling for people to shoot fellow Republicans! We do get tired of writing the […]

Say this for Arkansas Republicans: They sure are ambitious! When they’re not busy banning abortion over and over and over again, they are hard at work thinking up clever new ways to have more teen moms, please. Yes, Arkansas already has one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the nation — it’s no New […]

This post made possible by the Patty Dumpling Endowed Blogging Chair for Oil Spills and Whatnot. Today in “just who in the hell is running this place?” Wonkette presents: Exxon. Ya know, usually our corporate overlords do a swell job with this Potemkin democracy illusion – the country’s farce in Washington with the “Senate” and […]

Existing abortion rulings — including that big shiny one from the Supreme Court — make it pretty clear: Women have a right to abortion access in the period before the child is viable outside the womb. Unable to push time restrictions back much further than around 20 weeks, anti-abortion legislators have instead resorted to other […]

Come, gather round ye heathens and lets us learn a little something today about Arkansas, shall we? Shut up, it won’t kill you, it’s not Texas. Okay, what do we know about this fair state? It brought us Wal-Mart, so that sucks. Then there’s all the Duggars and counting, gross. Also, Bill Clinton was its […]

Here is Arkansas Senator Jason Rapert, author of their fetal heartbeat bill, explaining to a nipple of Teabags (“nipple” is the collective term of art) about Muslins and my-nor-i-ties and Barack Obama and such hooboy yeehaw git em boys! Lessee, blah blah blah Muslims etc, yes, here it is. “When they invited all the Muslims […]
