There Is a New Fancy Word For People Like Bachmann and Perry

There is a popular idea in America which suggests that “devout Christians” are the best people to rule us all.

And everyone in the group appears to have earned a Ph.D. in Insanity and Glenn Beck Flow Chart Creation, which are the only prerequisites for becoming official terrorism experts.

What “Fair and Balanced” Gets You

Anytime you get a die-hard advocate of intelligent design on camera, you’re bound to hear something that makes your brain so deeply upset that it practically cries out for a bubble bath and a long nap.

Like: Why, Mr. President, are you so angry about the Patriot Act filibuster when you seem jolly well disposed to conferring whatever powers you like upon yourself? Like: What part of “You have seventy-two hours to seek a warrant after the initiation of a wiretap” don’t you understand? Like: Why can’t you and the idea of separation of powers just hug it out, bitch? Read more on Also, Two Wrongs are the New Right…
 

Remainders: General Zod Edition
