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 […]

Kentucky Senate candidate Matt Bevin just can’t seem to stop talking about the fundamental American right to make a sport out of watching animals tear each other to pieces, because god knows he needs to try to find some way of spinning that speech he gave at a pro-cockfighting rally last weekend. First he tried […]

Look, don’t go getting any funny ideas about Mitch McConnell’s teabagging primary opponent Matt Bevin being a supporter of cockfighting just because he gave a speech to a pro-cockfighting rally. All he saw on his schedule last Saturday morning was that he was speaking to a “States rights rally,” although maybe all the feathers and […]

Mitch McConnell’s Senate campaign released a weird new video this week, a wordless two minutes of ol’ Yertle with everyday Kentuckians. But the folks at The Daily Show discovered that the three opening shots — with the old reptile turning his head and smiling like some stygian swamp beast — make for some pretty awesome […]

Once upon a time, Republicans looooooooved the Tea Party. No, it’s true. The Tea Party was this great “independent” uprising of really Republican Republicans who were SO mad that they’d been Taxed Enough Already (translation: super pissed there was a black guy squatting in the White House), and Republicans would ride the wave of tinfoil-hatted […]

We all know that every problem in America can be blamed on the liberals, with our absolute belief that man-on-dog-on-snowman sex should be taught as Biblically sanctioned in second grade classrooms. Let’s just face facts — we liberals love us some LGBTQs, and we have no bigger champion in our fold than Senate Minority Leader […]

Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.) has proposed a tax reform plan that, on its face, is not an insult to math and human decency. Therefore he gets a simple (R-Mich.) next to his name here instead of the usual (R-dickflicker) thing we do because he is acting like a grown-up legislator statesman instead of a cruel […]

We have quite a range of incoherent shouting for you in today’s visit to the ol’ comment queue, so let’s jump right in and unleash the ugly vile little snark mob, shall we? Let us begin with “bmmg39,” who had a bone to pick with all of us for our stupid-headed failure to recognize that […]

When we first heard of this Matt Bevin guy who’s running against Mitch McConnell in the Kentucky Republican primary, the only thing we knew about him was that he was a millionaire, a tea partier, and the sort of person who calls Mitch Goddamn McConnell a big-government liberal. Well, now we have a deeper understanding […]

Cockfighting is a “sport” in which angry, often drugged male chickens, or “cocks,” try to kill each other in “rings” (called “cock rings”) using their beaks, spurs, and sometimes razor blades or other weapons that their owners (called “real shitheel motherfuckers”) attach to their weird, lizardlike bodies. Some people enjoy cockfighting, because it’s part of […]

Not that anyone will be knocked over with this particular feather, but let’s give a little cheer to Mitch McConnell for this bit of chootspah: “Five years later, the stimulus is no success to celebrate,” said the embattled Republican to the Associated Press, “It is a tragedy to lament.”* Of course, that tragic spending halted […]

Sigh. We thought this whole IRS scandal-not-scandal was over and done with. You know, the one where Tea Party groups turned the butthurt up to eleven because the IRS decided to see if they were being honest in their tax-exempt applications (hint: they weren’t). Even though some groups faced extra scrutiny, we learned that many […]

This post was brought to you by our friends at EMILY’s List. Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired of Sen. Mitch McConnell? Of course you are; everyone is. He’s one of the least popular senators in the country (and that’s saying something). He’s been in the Senate forever (okay, about three […]

We have said this before and we will say it again. We do not actually think Megyn Kelly is dumb. Well, we think she is dumb in the sort of way we think leggings worn as pants are dumb, which is to say we think they shouldn’t exist. But we do not think Megyn Kelly […]

Time for another plunge into the ol’ comments queue, and the good news is that we just got a new shipment of industrial-strength rubber gloves! Our first missive comes from wannabe art director “rogerinorlando,” whose name and location we will not release. Rogerinorlando was not pleased by DDM’s choice of graphics for a recent story […]
