Republicans Plotting To Take Away Your Freedom To Make America Great Again

It’s not just a hat — it’s a plan! Everyone knows the Demoncrat Party is the party of Latino vote frauding and election rigging — usually with mind control. So here’s a neat twist! This time, it’s Republicans who want to rig the next election in a certain way, and that way is to keep the name DONALD J. TRUMP off their primary ballots: Read more on Republicans Plotting To Take Away Your Freedom To Make America Great Again…

Donald Trump Already President Of All You Overrated Losers

Donald Trump built a fence around the other candidates, and it was luxurious. So that “debate” thingie last night, you saw it, yes? Where nine of America’s biggest losers pulled out their gruesome dick junk and showed it to Fox News’s Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier on live television, but nobody was paying attention, because Donald Trump’s dick junk is the yooooogest and classiest and most beautiful dick junk in all of America, and also big rapey Mexico? Yes, that thing. So the overwhelming consensus, according to Donald Trump, is that Donald Trump built a fence around that fucking debate and made it his next wife, and if you don’t understand that, well, you probably are gay for Megyn Kelly, who is overrated and a loser: Read more on Donald Trump Already President Of All You Overrated Losers…

Donald Trump YOOOOGE Fan Of God And Those Little Jesus Crackers

The true face of feminism.
We have been so busy LOLing and WTFing over Donald Trump’s attack on John McCain for being a fake war hero, with his weak-assed POWing, because Trump “like[s] people that weren’t captured,” that we almost forgot to tell you some of the other hilarity of Trump’s weekend. Almost. Read more on Donald Trump YOOOOGE Fan Of God And Those Little Jesus Crackers…

Donald Trump Can’t Believe People Don’t Like His Straight Talk On Loser POWs

Just put a Band-Aid on it, don't be so weak and unprofessional.
Just in case you hadn’t heard about Donald Trump’s very special weekend shitshow, he had a terrible horrible no-good very bad Saturday at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, where he made the mistake of talking smack about somebody other than Mexicans. In a Q & A with emcee Frank Luntz, Trump went after John McCain on the one thing Republicans do not want anyone questioning: his status as an honest-to-god “Five And A Half Years, Alan” war hero.

  Take A Cruz On Denial

Now It Is Ted Cruz Who Is Poor Persecuted Galileo, And Climate Scientists Are The Church

Get your denier bingo cards out!
In a bravura performance Tuesday, Ted Cruz crammed an astonishing number of lies about global warming into four minutes of a longer interview with Texas Tribune reporter Jay Root. It was really pretty impressive! Cruz asserted that “we should follow the science and follow the evidence” on climate change, and then proceeded to reel off a whole catalogue of distortions, half-truths, and outright lies that have been refuted again and again. He hit just about every space on the Climate Denial Bingo card; for the sake of our sanity, we won’t refute everything he said, just some of our favorite stretchers.

How Will ‘Orwellian’ Hero Pollster Frank Luntz ‘Luntz-Up’ Sportsball?

GOP pollster Frank Luntz is the kind of hired gun political hack who can, with a straight face, say stuff like: “To be ‘Orwellian’ is to speak with absolute clarity, to be succinct, to explain what the event is, to talk about what triggers something happening… and to do so without any pejorative whatsoever.” Read more on How Will ‘Orwellian’ Hero Pollster Frank Luntz ‘Luntz-Up’ Sportsball?…

Frank Luntz Is Really Sad About Partisan Corrupt Traitor Obama Dividing America

What a sad time it is to be wingnut muppet Frank Luntz. It seems that all these years of soaking in the corrosive environment of national politics have left the communications genius adrift in an existential midlife crisis. While most of us would deal with such a crisis by crying to our therapists or getting a tattoo, Frank’s solution is to spill his guts to Molly Ball over at The Atlantic. Gotta admit, it’s brave of Frank to put the pathetic details of his life online where people can feel sorry for him wonder if he knows that “karma” is not an Indian restaurant in Dupont Circle.

Study: Republicans Oppose ‘Assisted Suicide,’ Cool With ‘Painless End Of Life’

Look, Democrats have a lot going for them right now. There’s our “flashy” President B. Barry Bamz and his healthcare law that can’t possibly be as bad as Republicans have spent the last half a decade derping that it will be, so expectations managed there; the country’s suddenly a lot cooler with gay folks, pot smoking, all that good shit; the proponents of austerity have self-discredited; and looking into the future, there appears to be only one “titanic” Republican who could conceivably win the presidency in 2016, except his record of being relatively sane means he probably can’t win the primary. So there is really no reason for all us liberals to be assholes about a recent Gallup poll that found Republicans are significantly more likely than Democrats to give different answers to the same question depending on how the question is worded.

Frank Luntz Caught Telling Truth, Has Totally Mature Reaction

Frank Luntz, a man so morally upright he once took money in exchange for helping Pat Buchanan attempt to get elected president, has made his bones by studying the ways language can be used to generate emotional responses with voters, and then providing politicians with specific words and communication strategies “that will help his clients sell their product or turn public opinion on an issue or a candidate.” So with that in mind, let us write a lede that will convey an accurate emotional reflection of our feelings about Luntz and this recent news item about him. Howzabout … “Mealy-mouthed sack of shit Frank Luntz is having himself a snit, a fit, a conniption, a whiny-ass titty-baby tantrum because someone leaked a tape of him saying bad things about other Republicans.” Yep, we think that about covers it!

We Might Agree With Frank Luntz About Something, Possibly, But Probably Not

And they say Christmas comes but once a year. Is this is a stopped-clock-is-right-twice-a-day thing though? Possibly! Also it is a no-brainer, but still, we agree with Frank Luntz about something so we will note it because this is significant due to the fact of it never happening, really. The video starts with the CBS anchor lady asking him what he thinks about the NRA’s batshit crazy suggestion that we have a person with a gun in every school, protecting the kids. Frank notes that well, “this is not the language” that the NRA used, and if it were the language that the NRA used, he’d be “even more opposed to it.” (Why is that, we wonder? Is it not the idea itself that matters? Or just the language used to express said idea?) But anyway, he is opposed to it, and also too, the NRA is “not listening” to the American public who wants LESS guns in school, and who also agrees with the Second Amendment but doesn’t agree with the idea that every gun should be available at every place, at every time, to every person.

Fox News Convenes Post-Debate Panel Of Snippy Idiots; Foofaraw Ensues

Fox News once again hired ruddy shitmonster Frank Luntz to convene a panel of undecided voters who watch Fox News (read: Romney voters who want to be on Fox News). There is video (as the kids are saying, “after the fold”). Fox Nation describes this as “Luntz Focus Group Erupts Into Near Brawl,” but it comes off more as “Luntz Focus Group Erupts Into Backbiting Fuck-Tussle.” Read more on Fox News Convenes Post-Debate Panel Of Snippy Idiots; Foofaraw Ensues…

GOP Acts Like Total Dems, Whine to New York Times Typist

Hey, here’s a strategy that’s high on wow-factor but lacking in any sort of long-term sustainability: wrapping oneself in the flag to give authenticity to the demonization of gays, the war on caterpillars women, the alienation of Latino/as, the disenfranchisement of African Americans, and the refusal to raise taxes on anyone, ever, in spite of the high costs of maintaining an enormous military-industrial complex that is perpetually in a state of war. As it turns out, this sort of strategy creates factions, factions that are very passionate! Especially when you pretend to be for all manner of “freedom,” unless such freedom involves doing certain kinds of drugs or having abortions or buttseks. In a delightful article called “Republicans Worry About Keeping Factions Reined In,” a New York Times typist helps us learn about all these factions, by interviewing important Republicans and writing down what they say.

Listen Up As Karl Rove Explains Why Seniors Will Flock To GOP To Kill Medicare For Them

Who among you supposed — nay, dreamed — way back in 2008 that Karl Rove, having completed his task of gifting George W. Bush to America, would take his balls and go home and stop messing around with democracy? Well, we hate to be the bearers of bad news, but not only does he have a $200,000,000 SuperPac to screw around with, he’s also been going on the Sunday morning yap shows to talk about Bush’s “accomplishments” and writing op-eds for the Wall Street Journal that misquote Bill Clinton. Now he’s back with ANOTHER op-ed, also in the Wall Street Journal, this one focusing on the fact that the GOP has a “Medicare advantage” over the Democrats. And surprise surprise, this one is as poorly sourced and given to hyperbole and obfuscation as the last one. But it’s Karl Rove, leader of the GOP Hive Mind, so we figure we should pay attention!

Fox Calls Neo-Nazis Patrolling Sanford ‘Civil Rights Group,’ To Be Fired By National Review (VIDEO!)

Say what you want about National Socialism, at least it’s a fucking ethos. It’s also — have you heard the newest Frank Luntzian reframing? — a civil rights group. Fox affiliate WOFL in Florida had a piece on the National Socialist Party coming to Sanford to patrol the town and make sure no white folks got Reginald Dennyed, and they accidentally (?) called the Nazis a “civil rights group.” They accidentally called them a “civil rights group” in the headline (which has since been changed) and about 27 times throughout the package, and nowhere in the two-minute piece did they mention that the National Socialist Party is more commonly known as “neo-Nazis.” Nor did they find anyone in the entire state of Florida who might take issue with neo-Nazis just cold comin’ down and hangin’ out and bein’ neo-Nazis. In Florida! That is one way to listen to your base made up exclusively of the kinds of people who are defending John Derbyshire in rightwing website comments sections! And that is one way to maybe not be very good journalists? We feel like maybe there is some journalistic standard and/or practice that requires not just blindly accepting whatever people say about themselves and presenting it without question. We are not sure, maybe someone could ask Jay Rosen. Read more on Fox Calls Neo-Nazis Patrolling Sanford ‘Civil Rights Group,’ To Be Fired By National Review (VIDEO!)…

Republican Voters Apparently Really, Really Like Herman Cain

Before we turned off the teevee after that terrible debate last night, the Republican Party’s appointed Divider, Frank Luntz, was doing what he always does, standing in front of the whitest people he could find in a few hours, asking them questions to find out how best to make people like this think their political opponents aren’t human beings, much less American. But before he could get into that, he had to allow this restless group of people to express their sudden yet profound commitment to do whatever Herman Cain, the next president of the United States, says. He didn’t just win the debate. He mopped the floor with them all. And it makes absolutely no sense. Read more on Republican Voters Apparently Really, Really Like Herman Cain…

Iowa Caucus Voters Know What’s Going On With Egypt: Obama’s Muslim

There are some things Frank Luntz and Fox News would rather not say explicitly out loud if they don’t have to. Luckily, they have Republican voters to back them up and make the insane connections they merely insinuate. Who here thinks Obama is a Muslim and that is why he is letting Egypt become a democracy or whatever? Very good, very good. You all get ice cream.
