Gay Supreme Court Jams Gay Gay Marriage Down Red States’ Gay Gay Gay Throats (With Gayness)

It's the end of the world! Except not
The Supreme Court is sick and tired of your whining, red states, and does not even want to hear you cry about gay marriage anymore. The justices already told you your dumb marriage bans are dumb, and what part of “IT’S THE 21ST CENTURY, GET OVER IT ALREADY!!!” do you not understand?

Kansas Dems Make Dirty Deal to Defeat Pat Roberts By Quitting

pat says please stay chad
Image via video from roberts.senate.gov Kansas Democrats are calculating, power-hungry animals who will stop at nothing in their quest to deny a fourth term in the Senate to kindly old vagabond Pat Roberts. They’ll make deals with anyone as long as it ends in Pat’s defeat, and they would think nothing of engaging in such reprehensible tactics as sending a letter, notarized, to the Kansas Secretary of State, unilaterally withdrawing from the race.

Sorry, Arkansans Making $1899 Per Year, You Are Too Rich For Medicaid

Here is a fun (!) morning math lesson for you, our brilliant and talented and math-capable readers! If Arkanasas currently provides Medicaid to those making 17 percent of the poverty level in the US, and the poverty line in the US for a single person is $11,170 per year, how little do you have to earn to be eligible? The answer is $1898. That is not very much bread, man! So would Arkansas like some free federal cashish to expand its eligibility for Medicaid to those making all the way up to the poverty line?

Health Care Decision A Victory For Everyone, Except Millions Of Poor People Maybe

Good news, liberal-arts majors with Internet connections! Now even though you don’t have a “real job” but are making a livable amount of money by cobbling together three blogging gigs and so don’t have health insurance, starting in 2014 you will be able to (and also required) to stone-cold buy health insurance from whoever you want — even if you have a pre-existing condition (i.e., herpes, we are going to guess that herpes is what you have). But wait, do you only have one blogging job, or maybe no blogging job and you work in a Wal-Mart, or as one of Newt Gingrich’s janitors or something, and so you can’t even afford to buy insurance through the subsidized exchanges and you were kind of counting on the expansion of the Medicaid to cover you? Well, we’ve got good news! Oh, do you live in a state with a Republican governor and/or legislature? Then we mean “bad news.” UPDATED WITH MAYBE SLIGHTLY LESS BAD NEWS?

Rick Perry’s States’ Rights Obsession As Liberal As Rest of Rick Perry

Reports about Rick Perry’s secret libtard leanings are swirling in over the flood walls these days, almost as fast as those “Rick Perry is gay” rumors used to knock down our doors before “everyone” was apparently required to stop calling him a closeted homosexual and seriously discuss his asinine policy positions super seriously in case he gets elected, so that we may “know the enemy” and such. We miss those older days! Whatever, here we are today, and former Clinton labor secretary Robert Reich has probably the most salient point we’ve seen so far about Rick Perry’s tired fixation with states’ rights: the freedom from federal government institutions like the IRS and Federal Reserve that Perry is in favor of would likely help to further impoverish many of the annoying Teatards always complaining about the federal government since most of them live in red states that receive more federal assistance than they contribute in taxes. We were just going to say, “build a wall around them and let them eat each other,” but sure, an “economic” argument sounds so civilized!

Team Hillary Makes Every Voter Feel Important, As Always

Joel Ferguson, Hillary’s Michigan co-chairman, said today that “superdelegates are not second-class delegates… The real second-class delegates are the delegates that are picked in red-state caucuses that are never going to vote Democratic.” But since the reddest state the world, George W. Bush’s Texas, has a primary, they are first-class delegates that are never going to vote Democratic. Meanwhile, Barack Obama is plagiarizing more black speeches.

Don’t They Have Anything Better To Do in South Carolina?

Intentionally or not, the AP article is full of double entendres. Here’s a quote from sex shop employee Wanda Gillespie (parentheses courtesy of the AP): “I know of multiple marriages that sex toys have sold because some people need that. The people who are riding us (the adult novelty industry) so hard are probably at home buying it….” Read more on Don’t They Have Anything Better To Do in South Carolina?…
