Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is branching out from hating immigrants (he helped draft Arizona’s “papers please” immigration law), and is now touting the virtues of the state’s restrictive voter ID law, which requires people to present their birth certificate or other proof of citizenship in order to register to vote. The measure has […]

OMG guise! They are on to us! A post by “Chickensoup” on Free Republic today has uncovered the ugly truth! Leftists like to control the vocabulary and the discourse. Leftists have decided to amputate the word Clinton from the name of Hillary Clinton, wife of Bill Clinton, our former president. No self-respecting conservative should EVER […]

The ‘knockout game’ is over. OK, it was probably never even a real thing in the sense that it was hard to see how it was any different from getting “snuck” by “some idiot” which has been going on “since forever.” Never mind that. Pretend it was real, and that it was a big deal. […]

Everyone in the online universe has already pointed out that Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Tornado Alley) voted against Hurricane Sandy aid last year but will probably collect sweet sweet government monies for the Oklahoma disaster. (AS WELL HE SHOULD DAMMIT BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT THE GOVERNMENT IS THERE FOR EVEN IF YOUR SENATOR IS A […]

Oh look, some super-brilliant science nerd at the Free Republic has written an Open Letter to the Queen of Englande! It is full of incontrovertible facts, like how we must rejoin the British Empire, because Barack Obama is socialist. But wait! you are shouting at yourself, while scratching your belly, isn’t the United Kingdom sort […]

Our friends over at Free Republic do not have a lot of confidence that U.S. America can possibly last much longer, what with all the socialism and the welfare and the fiat money and the welfare and the food stamps, also Obama will take everyone’s guns. Also, welfare. So they are ever vigilant for the […]

It is a tradition as old as the Olympics itself: Some idiot notices that muscular women and muscular men, being actual members of the same actual species, look somewhat similar to each other, and declares that sports have brought about the “death of femininity.” The misogynist du jour is Turkish columnist Yüksel Aytuğ, who kicked […]

The proto-teabaggers at America’s oldest wingnut web forum have carefully considered this whole “obesity epidemic” thing — and they’ve decided it’s all a hoax. If there are so many obese people everywhere, then wouldn’t everybody be fat? Oh, everybody’s fat? Okay then, well riddle them this: If people are fat, and liberal women like Michelle […]

Here’s the latest wacky photoshop going around the wingnut blogs: It’s the Oval Office, but full of hilarious socialist iconography and some old-fashioned racist fun. Can you identify the hundred things added to this image to amuse jobless old white people on their ‘puters? And how many of these things would the confused elderly teabaggers […]

Let’s see let’s see what will make Americans realize that getting some basic assurances of health care in this country is a super-bad & extra-terrible thing?

The latest “put a food item in the mail to Washington, DC in order to send a strongly worded message to whomever” stunt involves … a cooked bread thing! Note that bread does not appear even once in the Constitution, which is a smear on Ron Paul and our other Founding Fathers. This is why […]

Today’s “U.S. military guy attacks U.S. military base in U.S.A.” story comes from Texas, as usual. Some airman was apprehended just before he shot up a residence building at Sheppard Air Force Base just outside of Wichita Falls. Nothing noteworthy about that, but today’s chapter of Enlisted Men Vs. America features the comical dueling news […]

THIS SINGLE COMMENT FROM SOME FREE REPUBLIC THREAD DESERVES ITS OWN POST: “reaganaut1,” upon hearing that Barack Obama wants to impose a small tax on banks to recoup bailout funds, warns: “If Wall Street doesn’t grow a pair of nads now, they are forever doomed.” Text “HAITI” to 90999 to help the powerless Wall Street. […]

OH woah woah woah, Best Buy has wished Muslims a Happy Eid al-Adha, the Islamic festival of sacrifice during which Muslims are traditionally encouraged to donate to charity?? Uhh nice try. Free Republic will boycott Best Buy now, just cold won’t shop there anymore, maybe it’ll even go out of business, right? And when all […]

HILARITY: Would-be teabaggers and and other easily duped dingbats are proudly emailing each other wonderful pictures of a million teabaggers crowding the National Mall, but these pictures are actually from the Million Man March of 1997, an event attended by, ahem, colored people.
