TSA Let A Known Terrorist Fly. Who Was It, Besides Obama?

Today's big Air Travel Freakout is that the Transportation Security Agency apparently allowed someone very bad to board a commercial airliner last year, and they let the very bad person board without taking his very bad shoes off, even...
This fuckin' guy.

Breitbart Very Very Very Sorry About Its Journalism, For Sure

Mistakes -- we all make 'em! Admitting when you're wrong helps build credibility with your audience, and it is also too the Right Thing To Do. But that's not how they roll at Corpse Andrew Breitbart's Cyberdome For Teddy Roosevelt...

Tim Pawlenty Accidentally Announces His Presidential Campaign

We even asked our brother-in-law who lives in the state where this Tim Pawlenty is supposedly the governor or the state president or whatever, and our brother-in-law was all, "Nope. Haven't heard of him." But our iPhone just beeped with...

The GOP Forgot To Download Its Young Leaders!!

In a way, this actually somehow seems promising. Oh but before you go, Michael Steele has a question! (SPOILER ALERT IT'S "WHAT UP?")

Bill O’Reilly Has Absolutely No Idea What The Public Option Is

It begins thusly: Bill O'Reilly announces that it is a good thing the public option is dead, because now the President can work on making sure the government will start to provide cost-effective, reliable health care for people who...

Obama Nixes Stupid ‘Great Seal’ Remake

The national press corps is not used to covering a "confident" Democratic presidential candidate, at least in this decade. So much confidence, in fact, that the candidate won't always bend over backwards to talk to the press, or to...
