A Malaysia Air 777 has crashed, probably shot down by a ground-to-air missile, over eastern Ukraine today. We are still in the early “very little is confirmed” stages of this story, so get ready for all sorts of maybe-facts that are likely to become fodder for suspicion and conspiracy theories. At this point, it appears […]

Cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz, who does both political cartoons and the LA Cucaracha comic strip, has incurred the wrath of Xavier Hermosillo, the Public Relations schmuck for the City of Murrieta, who knows that the Constitution protects free speech, but not for people who say mean things. You see, Alcaraz has been tweeting with the hashtag […]

Holly Fisher is a big fan of Hobby Lobby, America, and Right Living, and she can’t for the life of her understand why anyone would find anything wrong with this photo she tweeted on the 4th of July, because as she explained to Fox News, it’s just a picture of her expressing her First and […]

It’s a special 5th of July Derp Roundup, bringing you all the Red White and Blue idiocy we could scrape off our browser tabs. Please consume responsibly, and we hope that your pets are finally recovering from the barrage. Your Inderpendence Day lede: Ted Nugent’s WND column for July 3 explained that he “celebrates Independence […]

We know that the Hobby Lobby decision is dangerous and terrible for the nation, but for filthy liberal bloggers, it is for sure going to be the gift that keeps on giving, mostly because there is so much post-decision derp from the Hobby Lobbyists. We should have known that Bristol Palin, queen of being best […]

The American Patriarchy Association didn’t want to leave anything to chance with its poll about the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case, so it gave readers a choice between being excited that God answered their prayers (and yet Barack Obama obstinately remains in office), or being excited that the religious freedom to keep […]

We’re all still reeling over the awful Hobby Lobby decision today, but thank heavens, some of our great thinkers have already weighed in. For instance, Rick Santorum is positively frothy over the decision, even to the point of losing his prepositions: SCOTUS restored a vital piece our Constitution today [sic]. It’s a great day for […]

Welcome to another Derp Roundup, the feature where we turn a pressure-washer on our browser tabs and skim off the weird, just for you. Please read responsibly and do not operate heavy machinery while under the influence of Derp. Our Lead Derp is one of those things that we didn’t know was a thing until […]

Reading Is For Snobs had a nice catch today with the Grover Norquist tweet you see above (above). Asked for his favorite Jimi Hendrix song, the anti-tax “small government” guru chose “Hey Joe” because it is pro-Second-Amendment and pro-family! (Pro-Second-Amendmenting your family, at any rate.) Let’s reacquaint ourselves with Hendrix’s pro-family message, shall we? Fuck […]

Stephen Colbert got a little manic Tuesday night, bringing us the terrifying news about the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS): they aren’t just taking over Iraq; they’re also dominating social media, building support on Twitter, Facebook, even Instagram. Oh, they’re huge on Instagram. They’ve got one filter to make all the photos seem […]

This is some bullshit. The chief of staff to Ohio GOP Rep. Steve Stivers has resigned after a former porn actress posted an explicit photo of the aide online. Adam Kuhn, a longtime Stivers’ aide and chief of staff, resigned on Tuesday. Kuhn is single, while the actress is married. So was it a question […]

So you might think that this would be something that wingnuts would be happy about: U.S. Special Forces have captured Ahmed Abu Khattala, one of the suspected ringleaders of the attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi. He was captured in a raid in Libya and will be brought to the United States for […]

Welcome to another edition of Derp Roundup, the feature where we bring you the very best of the worst detritus that’s clung to our browser tabs all week. We find the stories that are too short for a full post but too stupid to ignore altogether and serve them up to you in a delicious […]

Texas Senator and evil hosebeast John Cornyn is pretty unhappy with Barack Obama for his failure to keep Iraq out of the hands of radical militants, and wants some answers. If more and more of Iraq is falling to al Qaeda-affiliated militias, then just what the hell was that whole war for? Congratulations, Senator. We’ve […]

We sure do miss our Newsmax feed, because we almost missed this important Poutrage Update: Barack Obama, the alleged Leader of the Free World, insulted the memory of all the hallowed dead of the Normandy Invasion on Friday when he was seen chewing gum during the commemorative ceremonies. Even worser, the walking nicotine-addicted shamebucket that […]
