As surely as the leaves must change and the birds must fly south (but just a few miles, because global warming), Cocktober inevitably brings with it stories of elected officials behaving like a bunch of bonobos, only without the social graces.

As part of a mediation deal in his sexual harassment lawsuit, San Diego’s creepy harassment Mayor Bob Filner is expected to resign Friday.

While Texas Republicans are working hard to protect some awful men who do not understand what abortion is from regretting their abortions, Republicans in Washington are working hard to protect your constitutional right to sexually harass hot chicks.

Today occasions the publication of James O’Keefe’s first foray into longform prose, with his semi-autobiographical fantasy novel Breakthrough: I Did Not Title This After Chapter 6 In Andrew Breitbart’s Memoir!

You may have been under the impression that conservatives are mostly worried about too much sexxytime, anywhere — at least for other people — but it turns out that at least a few conservative stalwarts don’t worry as much about sinful fornicatin’ so much.

Holy fucking shitbags, GOP, are you even trying to compete for the womyn vote anymore?

Well, golly, it’s been at least a day or so since we’ve reported on some elected asshat saying something reprehensible in public, so obviously we’re overdue.

Do you wake up in the morning and think: “man, I sure wish I could get paid fancy WaPo monies to write about, well, nothing really?” (SPOILER ALERT/TRIGGER WARNING: we wish for that gig EVERY. DAMN. DAY). Do you also wish that you could be the least self-aware motherfucker on God’s green earth while simultaneously […]

We have a feeling that maybe this one is not going to hold up on appeal, just maybe, but who knows? The Iowa Supreme Court has decided that … you know, folks, really, maybe if you’re holding something that you might break your computer with, you should put it down … so they decided that […]
