Morning Maddow: For 2016, GOP Debates To Try Ackin’ Less Cray-Cray (Video)

Somebody's enjoying this a little too much
Rachel Maddow was in full political-nerd bliss Friday with this report on the announced schedule for the 2016 GOP primary debates. Rachel is pretty sure the best TV series of 2012 was the “nationally-televised tragicomedy of the Republican presidential primary debates,” and she’s looking forward to the 2016 edition, even if the party has taken a number of steps to tamp down on the crazy, like dictating that any candidate participating in a non-official debate will be barred from appearing in the remaining official ones. And here’s a surprise: Three of the nine planned debates will be on Fox. But let’s not get discouraged: Even with these attempts to rein in the process, there’s almost certainly going to be plenty of crazy to go around.

Bob McDonnell Innocent By Reason Of Wife’s Cuckoo Insanity

Maureen McDonnell confronts the staff (Artist's conception)
The defense opened its case in former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s corruption trial Monday, and at least part of the defense strategy seems aimed at a Not Guilty By Reason Of Wife’s Insanity verdict. A staffer for the former state First Lady testified that everyone in the governor’s mansion thought Mrs. McDonnell was “suffering from mental illness,” which presumably will advance the real defense aim of suggesting that she, not the governor, was the one responsible for the couple’s close association with a peddler of diet supplements, and so Bob McDonnell never did a corrupt thing at all. If she’s lost her shit, you must acquit! Read more on Bob McDonnell Innocent By Reason Of Wife’s Cuckoo Insanity…

Pat Robertson: Jesus Wants You To Divorce Your Wife If She Won’t Put Out

Pat Robertson has had quite the week. After sounding the alarm about the apocalyptic asteroid event that could happen next week, or ever, Robertson advised a 700 Club caller that his wife probably withheld sex because of childhood sexual abuse, and that obviously, the caller should just divorce her. Given that surveys have shown that 43% of women recount experiencing sexual dysfunction and 32 percent of mothers report going years without sex, we now expect to see a lot of 700 Club-inspired divorces as husbands ditch their frigid wives. This makes Pat Robertson worse for marriage than Dan Savage, who just thinks you should cheat. Read more on Pat Robertson: Jesus Wants You To Divorce Your Wife If She Won’t Put Out…

Mitch McConnell’s Crack Oppo Researchers Reveal: Ashley Judd Is A Democrat!

There are some secret tapes of Mitch McConnell only talking, don’t be gross — and it appears the man is worse than we ever thought, in the how is he even able to dress himself much less be a Senator? way. When Ashley Judd said she was thinking hard about a possible run for Mitch’s seat, McConnell and his opposition research team went into action: “They want to fight? We’re ready,” he declared. McConnell was serious: Later that day, he was huddling with aides in a private meeting to discuss how to attack his possible Democratic foes, including actor/activist Ashley Judd, who was then contemplating challenging the minority leader. During this strategy session—a recording of which was obtained by Mother Jones—McConnell and his aides considered assaulting Judd for her past struggles with depression and for her religious views. McConnel’s crack team of Super-slueths, Moe, Curley, and Shemp, er um Phil, Josh, and Jesse dug deep into all things Ashley Judd. Jesse apparently had the brilliant idea that he could suss out the skinny on Ms. Judd through the brilliant tactic of reading her autobiography, which was really, really hard for Jesse, because you just know he has to move his lips when he reads to sound out the words. And what “nuggets” as they aptly called them, though probably not for the reasons they think, did they find? Read more on Mitch McConnell’s Crack Oppo Researchers Reveal: Ashley Judd Is A Democrat!…

South Carolina Has Fun New Idea: Jail Officials Who Implement Obamacare

Anyone here from SOUTH CAROLINA? Yes? Maybe you can explain to us why your state is so crazy, possibly as crazy as Florida (or at least, coming at a close second): South Carolina state Rep. Bill Chumley last week pre-filed a bill for the upcoming legislative session that would criminalize implementation of President Barack Obama’s 2010 healthcare reform law. If his bill becomes law, any state official caught enforcing the healthcare law would be guilty of a misdemeanor and “must be fined not more than one thousand dollars or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.” Read more on South Carolina Has Fun New Idea: Jail Officials Who Implement Obamacare…

Bachmann Comix Will Feature Sexy Flying Imams, Other Things

The crazed baby-farming, Bush-groping McCarthyite fluorescent light bulb evangelist Michele Bachmann captures the imaginations of liberals and artists alike. How, they wonder, can somebody be so nuts without very publicly nurturing an addiction to high-strength prescription meds? Read more on Bachmann Comix Will Feature Sexy Flying Imams, Other Things…
