Republican House Passes Budget Bill To Screw America Because Screw You, America!

He really loves us
It was just a week ago that House Republicans introduced their latest scheme to screw America, which they charmingly call the Balanced Budget for a Stronger America. It would not actually balance the budget (unless you do some fancy magic “math” to it, which does not work in the real world, sorry) nor does it make America stronger, but come ON, it’s got a nice-sounding name, isn’t that enough?

House Republicans’ New Budget Holds Every Terrific Idea The Teabaggers Have Had … And More!

You just have to love America enough for it to work
Oh neat, it’s that time again when Republicans introduce their plan to make America flush with cash and liberty by drowning government in a bathtub and letting olds figure out their own damn health care and generally requesting that we all grab our ankles and hold on tight. Again? Yes, again. So what kinds of nifty fix-everything ideas did the GOP come up with this time, using an abacus and some of Rep. Paul Ryan’s left over magic fairy dust from his days as budget chairman, when he tried and failed to save America? Oh, the usual: Read more on House Republicans’ New Budget Holds Every Terrific Idea The Teabaggers Have Had … And More!…

Republicans Are So In Love With Chick-Fil-A Maybe They Should Gay Marry It

The Almighty’s favorite chicken sammich
National Journal, Ron Fournier’s Church of Both Sides Do It, is out with some Very Serious Journalism™: It turns out that, after Chick-fil-A was outed as a shitty fast-food company run by gay-hating Christianists oppressed by the Gay Mafia and the Feminazis, congressional Republicans decided they really, really loved them some fried chicken sandwiches, like, all the time, for the Lord.

Is It Time For Class War? (Hint: Yes)

But watch out for the gout
Still on the fence about whether it’s time for all-out up-against-the-wall eat-the-rich class war revolution? No you’re not: In 2014, Wall Street’s bonus pool was roughly double the combined earnings of all Americans working full-time jobs at minimum wage. […] Read more on Is It Time For Class War?

Still won't find anything, but knock yourselves out

Michele Bachmann Tattles On Illegal-Lovin’ GOP To Her Friend, An Invisible Lion

She tried to warn us
Have you been missing former Rep. Michele Bachmann since she retired to be president of the United States of Cheap Gas? Us too! And it seems she might be regretting her retirement, because hoo boy, those morons in the House are absolutely lost without her. In an EXCLUSIVE! interview with WND, Bachmann predicted that the 2016 presidential election has already been lost, thanks to those know-nothing turncoat Republicans who sold out their party and America. No, no, she’s not talking about the traitorous love letter to Iran. Don’t be silly! Read more on Michele Bachmann Tattles On Illegal-Lovin’ GOP To Her Friend, An Invisible Lion…
 

House Republicans Desperately Seeking A Lady, Any Lady, To Make Them Not Look So Bad

Aw, are Republicans have another lady problem? It’s been 24 hours, so yeah, that sounds about right: When House Administration Committee Chairwoman Candice Miller retires and hands over her gavel next year, GOP leaders will be facing a familiar quandary: finding another female lawmaker to lead a committee.

House GOP Posts SOTU Video With Climate Stuff Magically Erased

The transcript also appears to have been altered
Here’s a fun little bit of political ratfucking (not really, it’s totally an accident!): When the House Republican website posted a version of Tuesday’s State of the Union address, with Republican talking points popping up to reply to each point President Obama made, the posted version of the speech left out at least two significant portions of the speech, deleting almost everything about global warming: Read more on House GOP Posts SOTU Video With Climate Stuff Magically Erased…

GOP House Fixes All Nation’s Problems On First Day Back, By Banning Abortion Again

Do you remember your favorite Nazi research proponent and Congressperson Trent Franks (R-AZ)? Last Congress, he sponsored H.R. 1797, The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which yr Wonkette described at the time as “a calamitous clusterfuck of epic proportions from start to finish.” The bill would have banned all abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy, and while it did include a rape exception, that would only have been triggered if the woman reported the rape to police. And as everyone knows, that is always easy and convenient and safe for all women, hooray! After a floor debate that included insight into the masturbation habits of fetuses, the House passed the bill last June by a vote of 228-196, and then the Senate rolled around on the floor laughing and refused to touch it with a 10-foot pole. Remember when Democrats used to control the Senate, until a few weeks ago? Those were good times. Read more on GOP House Fixes All Nation’s Problems On First Day Back, By Banning Abortion Again…

Rep. Ted Yoho Awful Sad Obama Keeps Impeaching Himself

He's crying on the inside
Because it has been at least 24 whole hours since some Republican doofus insisted that Republicans do NOT want to talk about impeaching the president, no seriously, they do NOT want to talk about it, sheesh, stop making them talk about it all the time, no one ever said the “I-word,” and really, it is Obama who wants to talk about it all the time, like he wants to be impeached or something, here’s our hero Ted Yoho, a large-animal veterinarian turned Florida congressman, to not talk about that some more: Read more on Rep.

Congressman So Sad He Is Not Getting A Raise, Is Not So Sad About Your Stupid Minimum Wage

Please help this man
Looks like poor Lee Terry (R-Nebbish Rascal) is in dire straits again. Terry, you may recall, was one of several House members who explained that they really really needed their salaries during last fall’s government shutdown, because they work darn hard for their money, and unlike other people, not getting paid was uncomfortable. Back in October, Terry explained he wasn’t going to stop collecting a salary during the shutdown, because Read more on Congressman So Sad He Is Not Getting A Raise, Is Not So Sad About Your Stupid Minimum Wage…

Michele Bachmann Has Sick Bondage Fantasies About Obama

The safeword is
The House passed both of its super-tough immigration bills last night, so they can now go home to their constituents and brag about how they stuck it to those scary diseased border-crossing children. And along the way, Michele Bachmann was so excited about the prospect that she dabbled in a bit of rhetorical excess. Yes, we know you are astonished.

Barry Bamz Just About Ready To Impeach Congress

Yes, it's fake. Or wishful thinking.
President Obama held a surprise press conference today, announcing good economic news, but noting that the economy could be in much better shape if congressional Republicans would maybe consider working with him now and again on economic issues. America is in better shape than it was when he took office, he said, and we could be doing better, but NOOOOOOOOOOO, the Republicans are too busy fighting measures like infrastructure repair, a higher minimum wage, and fair pay, and so he will keep using executive actions as needed to move forward where possible.

Newest Version Of GOP Immigration Harsher But Still Doesn’t Deport Obama, Passage Iffy

Caillou never gets in trouble like this.
House Republicans have ironed out an immigration bill that just might be cruel enough to appease the Tea Party, which is all that matters, because it would give House members the ability to go home on vacation and say that they at least voted to solve the border mess. It doesn’t mean that anything will actually be solved if it does pass today, since in adding more Mean to make the bill palatable to wingnuts, the House has made the thing utterly toxic to the Senate. But the main thing is that the House will (maybe) be able to say it Did Something, so shut up, Obama.

Republicans Will Win All The Lady Votes With Exciting New Strategy: ‘Women Be Shopping’

We bet you're just as embarrassed at being reminded of this as we are for remembering it in the first place
OK, ladies, you’d better be ready, because here comes the 743rd Republican effort to convince you that there’s no “war on women” — instead, there’s a War For Women, and the GOP is totes going to win it because it knows what women REALLY care about. And what women really care about is not all that dull boring ‘bortion and contraceptives stuff, but rather the simple realities of everyday life, which does not revolve around your vagina, for godssakes. Which is why, before giving up on everything except maybe trying to pass an immigration bill that the Senate won’t even look at, House Republicans introduced a package of bills Wednesday to make life better for women. Cathy McMorris Rodgers took some time away from lying about Obamacare to explain why ladies are going to finally see that Republicans are their besties forever: Read more on Republicans Will Win All The Lady Votes With Exciting New Strategy: ‘Women Be Shopping’…
  We Are Gay For Rachel Maddow

Border-Protest Idiots Make Rachel Maddow Shouty (Video)

She got pretty animated Tuesday
In the midst of a longer segment on Our Dysfunctional House of Representatives on Tuesday, Rachel Maddow had this aside on the House’s “compromise” for funding the overflow of Central American children in our immigration system: they offer a fraction of the original request, and 2/3 of the funds would be dedicated to increasing security at the border. Which isn’t exactly needed, since in most cases, the children and families are walking right up to anyone in a Border Patrol uniform and turning themselves in. Says Maddow in disbelief, “Bolstering border security is utterly beside the point for this particular problem, but House Republicans are excited about it.” Read more on Border-Protest Idiots Make Rachel Maddow Shouty (Video)…

Republicans To Obama: Stop Impeaching Yourself! Stop Impeaching Yourself!

Don’t you just hate how Democrats can not stop blah blahing 27 hours a day about impeaching President Obama for Stuff and Reasons and Things? It is like, Republicans are trying to do the Lord’s work, investigating IRSfauxghazigate and repealing Obamacare for the fifty-teenth time and taking pictures inside giant vaginas (okay, that’s just the Romney family, but they do make up approximately 30 percent of the GOP). Except the stupid White House has ordered Democrats to talk about impeachment ALL day long, so now — sigh — House Speaker John Boehner has to take time out of his busy day of drunk-crying to respond to these absurd impeachment rumors, which Democrats TOTALLY started: Read more on Republicans To Obama: Stop Impeaching Yourself!

House GOP Having Big Summer ‘Viral Media’ Contest; All Entries Will Be Obama-As-Hitler Pics

Here’s your exciting House Republican Conference video of the day, and boy oh boy are we looking forward to seeing the results of THIS contest: the House GOP is doing its annual Social Media Contest, pitting members against each other in using the Twittosphere, Faceplacegram, and InstaTubes. The winner will be whoever gets the highest total score, based not just on followers — a statistic POLITICO recently reported can be easily padded — but also on retweets, likes and comments. What! Politico recently learned that social media numbers can be faked? The deuce you say! Read more on House GOP Having Big Summer ‘Viral Media’ Contest; All Entries Will Be Obama-As-Hitler Pics…

GOP Does Its Own Death Panel On Obamacare Numbers

If the 2012 election was all about the “47 percent,” you should probably brace yourself for another number in this year’s midterms: “67 Percent.” That’s the “disappointingly low” percentage of ACA enrollees who have actually paid for their insurance, according to the House Energy and Commerce Committee. BOOM, Obamacare, total failure! Oh, except like the idea that only 47% of Americans pay any taxes at all, this new number is also a lie. Republicans lying about numbers? UNPOSSIBLE!
