Where oh where will the wingnuts of the near future go for deals on grosses of “World’s Greatest Grandma” t-shirts and barrel-sized containers of Twizzlers? Certainly not Costco, which is the newest and shiniest focus of right-wing rage after the warehouse retailer made the decision to pull Dinesh D’Souza’s latest book from its shelves. Costco […]

This is encouraging! For all of us who wondered how we’ll ever get along come 2017, when a new president means we’ll be starved of “Obama is a muslin” stories, Washington Times columnist Robert Knight is auditioning a new possibility: Maybe Hillary Clinton worships Baal, a generic name for any one of several local deities […]

Richard Mellon Scaife, the guy who made a career of inheriting billions from his banking and oil industry forebears and then blowing it on hating the Clintons in the 1990s, died Friday of cancer. Scaife was a central contributor to rightwing attacks on the Clintons, and gave the American Spectator almost $2 million for the […]

Put on a plaid flannel shirt and break out your Nirvana CDs, kids, because our rightwing Christian textbooks are looking at the ’90s: Bill Clinton is the president, and America is in deep moral decline, because didn’t you just read the name of the president?

We’re not sure how we feel about the fact that Fox News had not one, but two, segments yesterday in which their hosts excoriated some of the derpier parts of the right wing. On the one hand, hahahahaha. On the other hand, agreeing with Fox News about things makes us feel icky. Not icky enough […]

Pop quiz time! (If you need to review last week’s lesson, you may.) Here is an actual review question from our 8th-grade American History textbook from Christian publisher A Beka, America: Land I Love (2006): “What Communist leader toured America in 1990?” Now, you filthy liberals may think the correct answer would be Mikhail Gorbachev, […]

Jon Stewart was pretty impressed with how well the capture of Benghazi attacker Ahmed Abu Khattala went. He couldn’t find a single thing wrong with the operation — “which is probably why I don’t work at Fox.” Ah, but America’s greatest news network found flaws — after all, it would have been easy for a […]

Hillary Clinton has apparently taken the first step toward détente with the Republican National Committee’s ingenious French Squirrel Costume, deftly defusing the sciurid threat to her campaign by shaking his (?) hand and giving the critter a copy of her book. CNN has the hard-hitting analysis, after the jump.

So you might think that this would be something that wingnuts would be happy about: U.S. Special Forces have captured Ahmed Abu Khattala, one of the suspected ringleaders of the attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi. He was captured in a raid in Libya and will be brought to the United States for […]

This nugget of 2016 Campaign Intelligence from Patrick Caldwell at Mother Jones tells us that the race is getting serious: The Republicans have deployed their first Furry against the still-not-official campaign of Hillary Clinton. Named “HRC Squirrel,” the mascot tells you at a glance everything you need to know about the threat Hillz poses to […]

Oh, Hillary. Why’d you have to go and say that you and Bill were “dead broke” when you left the White House in 2001? In an interview Monday with Diane Sawyer, Hillz said, “We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt. We had no money when we got there, […]

Holy crap, 2016 fundraising is rough, especially if you are a Democrat not named Hillary Clinton. How rough? Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley spent the weekend engaging in his most aggressive push for campaign cash yet, and his office refuses to release how much he raised. What was his tactic? Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D), who […]

Why don’t you kick back, relax, dim the lights, and get comfy with some Happy links? Iran will make sure that no one ever has to see people dancing to Pharrell’s “Happy,” because dancing leads to fornication? Maybe? We’re unclear. Stephen Colbert has all the dirt on how to beat Hillary. This cat is a […]

Here’s Stephen Colbert with a few suggestions for how the GOP can defeat Hillary Clinton, just in case the whole “brain damage” thing doesn’t work out. Gotta get tough — after all, this isn’t the ’90s, when the Clintons got a free pass from the Republicans. For instance, maybe they could take a page the […]

When last we saw Larry Klayman, he was pretty worried about how Barack Obama was forcing white people to be racist, and if there were no Bamz, poof! no racism. But since it has been like 10 minutes since Larry had another theory (we use that word so loosely) about what is wrecking ‘Merica, he […]
