Another day, another shitwit with a gun going off his nut and very publicly shooting a bunch of holes in a bunch of innocent unarmed people somewhere in America. Okay, this actually happens every day, but Sunday’s shooting in Kansas City is getting the media attention so let’s talk about it for a minute. The […]

If there’s anything the right loves, it’s Law & Order, because if you don’t respect the law, you’re a lawless criminal. Barack Obama, for instance, is a lawless renegade who thinks that the executive branch can make changes to how the Affordable Care Act is administered without asking permission from the Tea Party. And violators […]

Bob Quast is a man who has experienced tragedy. We don’t just mean he has been victimized by having to pay taxes, we mean that he experienced a real, honest-to-god horrifying loss: his sister was murdered in 1999 by her husband after years of abuse. We aren’t entirely sure, however, that this campaign ad — […]

You’d think that maybe Republicans might have learned something from what happened when Ted Cruz asked Facebook readers to say they hate Obamacare. Which is to say, he got trolled hard by people who love not dying in the streets. Today, Mitch McConnell’s Facebook page is asking folks how they think he should wield a […]

Late last week some actual good news about violent crime came out of the great city of Chicago: the homicide rate for the first three months of the year fell to the lowest level of any first quarter since 1958. There were six fewer homicides than in the first quarter of 2013, and 55 fewer […]

See if you can follow the logic on this one, kids: On Fox’s Hannity Wednesday night, automated mobile grievance unit Allen West suggested that the Fort Hood shootings were the inevitable result of Barack Obama’s failure to recognize that America has international enemies. Now, by the time the program aired, it was pretty clear that […]

Last July, we told you about the fun idea proposed by the town of Deer Trail, Colorado, (population 546): sell novelty “drone hunting licenses” that would promise a bounty to anyone who brought down a federally-owned unmanned aerial vehicle. You know, for a laugh, and to raise money for the town, and to send the […]

This fine marksman here is Mr. Will Brooke, a serious businessman who’s challenging incumbent Spencer Bachus in the GOP primary for Alabama’s sixth congressional district. And he just wants you to know that he dislikes this terrible Obamacare law so much that he will kill it dead with live ammo, in an exciting homage to […]

The nation’s clutching salts, fainting necklaces, and smelling couches were nearly overwhelmed this week by the news that an inaccurate summary of the Second Amendment was distributed to innocent seventh-graders at Grant Middle School in Springfield, Illinois. At issue was this description of the Most Holy of Holy Constitutional rights: “This amendment states that people […]

Here’s another episode in the adventures of Infowars “reporter” Matt Bidondi, the Alex Jones functionary last seen on Yr Wonkette being told to “keep runnin’ your pissflaps” and to “drink a dick, dude,” by an Irate Boston Man after last year’s Boston Marathon bombing. This time around — just this last week, in fact — […]

This gentleman with the iffily tucked in shirt is Mr. Glenn Champ, candidate for the Republican gubernatorial primary in California. He is holding a staff, with which he will make “the crooked places straight and the rough places smooth,” according to his must-read campaign website. Srsly, check it out. It is genius, from its fresh-off-Geocities […]

Let’s see what sort of detritus has washed up in the ol’ comments queue this week…. First off, we have the message reproduced in the pic, from someone who apparently objected to the excessive two pony images that we used last Thursday. Point taken, dude. You may bite Princess Celestia’s immortal sun-emblazoned ass. On the […]

We recently covered the opposition to President Obama’s nominee for surgeon general from wingnuts and the National Rifle Association (but we repeat ourselves), because Dr. Vivek Murthy has in the past said that guns are not good for children and other living things. We thought at the time that such snits were just the routine […]

Welcome to another installment of Derp Roundup, the weekly feature where we bring you a bunch of stories that didn’t quite merit their own posts but were too stupid to ignore altogether. As usual, we recommend you fortify yourself with whatever helps you get through reading it — alcohol, weed, or a +10 Potion of […]

In another victory for the Second Amendment, students and faculty with concealed carry permits will now be allowed to keep their weapons with them on campus, YAY! Idaho is now guaranteed to be safe from campus shootings forever, because if anyone ever tries a mass shooting, there’s guaranteed to be a Responsible Gun Owner nearby […]
