  Lies From the Pit Of Hell

Morning Maddow: So Many GOP Lies, So Much Rachel Debunking

This animation annoys us: aren't the two choo-choos on the left crashing into each other?
Rachel Maddow brought us a double helping of Debunktion Junction Wednesday night, because there was just too much misinformation out there for a single segment. First off, she looked at that outrageous ad that congressmoron Kevin Cramer filmed in the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery without permission, violating VA rules to use dead soldiers’ graves as props in an ad. Cramer insisted to several media outlets that he would withdraw the ad. Has he actually done it? Watch and find out! Read more on Morning Maddow: So Many GOP Lies, So Much Rachel Debunking…

Arkansas Blubbering With Fear Over Mexican ISIS Cartels, But In Very Manly Way

Grab a rifle and stand a post!
  Angry beanpole Tom Cotton, the first-term GOP congressman from Arkansas who is trying to take Mark Pryor’s Senate seat away, has decided to follow the lead of other Republicans and reduce voters into quivering puddles of terror over Islamic State terrorists collaborating with Mexican drug cartels to flood across our southern border and kill us all dead in our beds. Man, doesn’t anybody like America anymore? If they kill us, who will make more Iron Man movies for the world to enjoy?

Stupidest Man On Internet Astonished That Muslims In Gitmo Allowed Food And Religion

Jim Hoft, the stupidest man on the internet, just wants to let his readers know how pampered the prisoners at Guantanamo are. In a story headlined “Gitmo to Celebrate Holy Ramadan with Feast and Muslim Prayer,” Hoft lays out the shocking details: The US military plans on serving lamb, bread, dates and honey to the Gitmo terrorists in celebration of the end of Ramadan. Al-Arabiya reported: Guards were preparing to serve the first in a series of special meals Wednesday to prisoners at Guantanamo Bay to mark the end of the Muslim holy period of Ramadan, which this year brought a lull in a long-running hunger strike. The military planned to serve lamb, bread, dates and honey as the last daylight fasting period of Ramadan ends, [emphasis added by Hoft] followed by three traditional holiday dinners on Thursday, said a spokesman for the prison, Navy Capt. Robert Durand. There will also be a special hour-long prayer for the holiday known as Eid al-Fitr in addition to the five daily prayers. Lamb, bread, dates, and honey? Outrageous luxury! And actual accommodation of the prisoners’ religion? What is this country coming to? And why haven’t these people been converted, like Ann Coulter recommended? Next thing you know, they’ll be getting free helicopter rides. Read more on Stupidest Man On Internet Astonished That Muslims In Gitmo Allowed Food And Religion…
 

Missing The Republican Candidates, A Retrospective

Thanks to the Young Turks for making the video that will heal America: a retrospective of our dearly departed Republican candidates. God, these guys were fun. Fortunately, Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney will probably run again in four or eight years, and those candidacies will probably launch in a few months. In the meantime, vote in our poll for which monster you miss the most. Read more on Missing The Republican Candidates, A Retrospective…

Duncan “Fences” Hunter — who actually has campaign signs in this state (right?) — just decided to interrupt everyone else’s schedule and hold a press conference in the next room. He said — BREAKING — he will not resign in his bid for the president and/or 30 seconds of television time. Well here’s a free advertisement of your butt, princess. Read more on …

Duncan Hunter: A Wealthy Version of the Common Man

To be president, as we learned in high school civics classes, you must be tall and rich. But to run for president, you must only be wealthy — which explains, say, the candidacies of Tom Tancredo and Dennis Kucinich. Read more on Duncan Hunter: A Wealthy Version of the Common Man…
 

Duncan Hunter PWNED by Chuck Hagel

Maverick rebel maybe-candidate Chuck Hagel finally snapped last night and hacked Duncan Hunter’s website, which now promotes … Chuck Hagel. Sort of. For a brief few hours, the title of Duncan’s page said “Chuck Hagel Official Website.” Read more on Duncan Hunter PWNED by Chuck Hagel…

Duncan Hunter’s Son Duncan Hunter Now Just Doing His Dad’s Work For Him

An emailer claims to have caught Duncan Hunter’s son Duncan Hunter pretending to be his congressman dad this last weekend. Though we’re pretty sure that’s not against the law — the district voted for Duncan Hunter, not necessarily that Duncan Hunter, right? Presidential candidate and former HASC chair, Duncan Hunter, was outside his office Friday practicing his golf swing at some length….while his son (also named Duncan Hunter) sat in on meetings in his Dads office — inc meetings with VERY high ranking military officers. There’s a hilarious story in here about the time our uncle Dick accidentally deposed the prince of Cambodia during a White House tour mistaken identity switcharoo in the ’70s, but it’s a bit long to get in to here. More speculation, including claims of presidential campaign impropriety (horror of horrors!), after the jump, as always.

Karl Rove’s Son Won’t Be Doing Mexican Work

White House Rasputin Karl Rove again endeared the administration to anti-immigration Republicans yesterday with this defense of Bush’s open-border policy: “I don’t want my 17-year-old son to have to pick tomatoes or make beds in Las Vegas.” Read more on Karl Rove’s Son Won’t Be Doing Mexican Work…
 

Yay, Bush To Be Impeached … By Republicans

While the spineless Democratic Majority won’t impeach Bush because it would hurt his widdle feelings or whatever, Republican congressmen are ready to sack up and start the proceedings. California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is “hinting that he would consider pressing for impeachment,” according to McClatchy Newspapers reporter Dave Montgomery. Why? Because Bush loves Mexico and hates America — he won’t pardon two U.S. border patrol agents now serving federal prison sentences for killing shooting an unarmed Mexican drug smuggler in the ass, on the Texas border. Rohrabacher and fellow House nuts Tom Tancredo, Walter Jones, Duncan Hunter and Michael McCaul have all had it with Bush and his Mexican-coddling ways. That Bush is going to Mexico for a lovefest with the Mexicans next month only proves his hatred for conservative Americans. Read more on Yay, Bush To Be Impeached … By Republicans…
 

Duncan Hunter’s Brave Crusade Against Mexicans, History

Duncan Hunter To Protect Iowans From Mexicans

We saw this clip for the first time a couple days ago, but Duncan Hunter is now apparently running it in New Hampshire and Iowa, two states that know all too well the importance of building a giant fence to keep the Nebraskans and Vermonters out.

The Best GOP Presidential Candidate EVER

2008 just got a whole lot more fun, because San Diego’s Duncan Hunter just announced he’s running for president. Thank you, Jesus. Duncan has been in the House since 1981, and he’s completely crazy. Hunter’s the one who wants CNN kicked out of Iraq so we can get all our great war news directly from Rumsfeld. He thinks China is about to invade Panama and is a big proponent of the 1,800-mile Berlin Wall along the Mexican border. Read more on The Best GOP Presidential Candidate EVER…

Hooker/Cunningham/WatergateGate: Who Didn’t Get Hookers?

Oh, Harper’s. We’ve bitched that new editor Roger Lodge Hodge had sullied your good reputation by turning your confusing and labyrinthine website into a common and degraded “blog,” but if you keep letting Ken Silverstein throw anything he wants up there, we’ll forgive you. Especially because Silverstein yesterday dug a little deeper into that Wall Street Journal piece that combined two of our favorite things: Congressional corruption and hookers.

Chatology: Fitzgeraldianly Awry

This week’s Sunday shows were best viewed with 20/20 hindsight. Top topics: Dubai ports deal (dead) and the Southern Republican Leadership Conference straw poll (meaningless). This was leavened with some talk of Iraq and a single, lonely reference to Saturday’s Gridiron show. Quotes to live by: • Chris Wallaces curses us out: “Do the Democrats have — pardon the expression — a Newt Gingrich?” • Bill Kristol also has the first Arctic Monkeys seven-inch: “I liked McCain before it was cool for conservatives to like McCain.” • Everyone (except surprise mystery guest Joe Biden) avoids saying they’re running for President, though Huckabee does announce for 2016. • Hospice-bound Art Buchwald stays wry: “I believe in God, but I’m not too certain that the people who are telling me that ‘it’s God’s will’ are the people I want to be listening to.” Full rundown after the jump.
