Democrats

If you read the glorious leader Editrix’s post earlier today (and seriously, if you haven’t, please. she beats us if there aren’t enough pageviews), then you know that you probably don’t want to move to North Carolina if you are one o’them funny not-mainstream religions like Muslin or Jewicidal. You probably did not want to […]

Last week, we had some mean namecalling for Ohio Senator Rob Portman. We were all, Rob Portman: Fuck That Guy. It was particularly trenchant, and well-said! But now the newest person to all of a sudden have seen the (big gay disco ball) light is a Democrat, so it is a totally different thing, and […]

The Michigan Democratic Party elected Lon Johnson as their new chairman Saturday. But you should know that Michigan Democratic Party chairman Lon Johnson is not the Lon Johnson who, in addition to starring in over 1300 adult films, operates the Lon Johnson School of Acting. They are two different guys. You can tell them apart […]

The dumb jocks who elect Michigan governors aren’t happy with current nerd governor Rick Snyder just because he signed a Right To Work bill into law basically before the damn thing was written and otherwise sat on his thumbs as the state legislature conducted a lame duck session so radical that it made Robespierre’s Committee of […]

Is something broken in California? Anything? Well, it is probably because of the 1978 passage of Proposition 13, which requires a 2/3 majority vote in the legislature to raise taxes, and capped all property taxes at a ridiculously low base level. The caps on property taxes even apply to income properties and commercial holdings, due […]

What is WRONG with your Wonkette? Why do we think it’s sort of hilarious that a Dem office in Warren County, Ohio, was manure-bombed with a truckload of horseshit? We guess it just seems sort of whimsical and “straight-talkin’” both at the same time? It’s certainly preferable to window-breakings and gunshots and firebombings and murder! […]

Your Editrix was in the stupid position last night of having gone to a debate party with her people, the Obamatards. This was stupid because when Wonkette broke on good ol’ Jim and Ken, she had to go outside to start emailing everyone in the world to try to fix it, and also it was […]

The Democratic draft platform is cruising right through to completion! You know, just going through a few little amendments via voice vote. Like this business about inserting the word “God” back into the platform and recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Well, one is a semantic issue and the other goes against longstanding U.S. […]

Here is a video of a man — looks like, but is not, Hugh Hewitt — droning on and on all Bueller-styley about how of course the GOP platform shouldn’t “dilute” the representation the citizens of DC already have in Congress (one) by giving them more representation. Besides, the people of DC are all blah, […]

Well, this makes no sense at all. A Minnesota state representative was caught having Rest Stop Hijinks with a 17-year-old boy — and the state representative is a Democrat? No no no, Democratic politicians get nabbed making sex on grown up ladies; it is 100 percent always true forever that if there is a live […]

You know what we DON’T need, especially in this economy? An agency dedicated to spurring economic growth, encouraging exports, and funding investment in local businesses, that’s what. Chris Chocola, a former Republican congressman and current president of the Club For Growth, took to The Hill yesterday to make these and other incoherent arguments about why […]

Welcome, Wonkette readers! Racism is in the past, the CDC is promising there are no zombies, and we’re building weapons to fight aliens! Aren’t you glad the past is over? According to Pew, difference in political opinions is what most divides Americans, rather than race or class. At first, this sounds amazing, because hello? Hooray […]

What comical attempts at cliché villainy do we have out of New Jersey’s ranks of local crony politicians today? Here’s one: the FBI has hauled off West New York’s Democratic mayor Felix Roque and his son on charges of hacking into a website associated with a movement to recall the mayor and then calling up […]

If you thought that the full chorus of national voices in the Democratic party might have no problem with — and in fact would embrace, not merely for political reasons but also because they believe it and consider it central to whatever remains of their ideological foundaiton — the long-promised assault on the practice of […]

It is time for another Arizona politics bedtime story! Undercover FBI agents running a fake real estate company bought former Tempe City Councilman and current state Representative Ben Arredondo a few thousand dollars’ worth of tickets to baseball and football games. He loved this gesture so very much that in return, “Arredondo brokered meetings between […]
