Here’s how “cray-cray” the “conventional wisdom” has “gotten” for the 2014 midterms: according to our pals at Talking Points Memo, it’s apparently really bold and out-there that Pennsylvania Rep. Allyson Schwartz is actually running on Obamacare instead of away from it. In this ad, Schwartz, who’s seeking the Democratic nomination for governor, says she’s proud […]

We breathed a sigh of relief when Jon Stewart returned from vacation to finally finally finally give the Bundy Ranch nonsense the tongue-lashing it deserved, and we’re equally grateful that Stephen Colbert has finally returned to deal with the confoundingly stupid idea that Hillary planned both Chelsea’s pregnancy and ShoeGate to somehow coincide with her […]

Jon Stewart is back from break, and not a moment too soon, because we’ve needed his sanity on the Great Nevada Cow Freedom Standoff of 2014. Or as Stewart calls it, “your standard boy has cow, boy breaks law for 20 years, boy loses cow story.” And then came the militia, and a clip of […]

Some time during the candidate talent show – an actual talent show, featuring statewide Democrats running for office in blood-red Oklahoma, with the winner chosen by applause for a prize of a $100 donation and one precious hour of old Oklahoma ladies phone banking, courtesy of the Pottawatomie County Dems — I slid from the […]

It’s Selina’s big special day! Watch as our heroine goes full Bridezilla! And hey look, it’s Jonah, now with improved character arc! All that and more in this week’s big shiny recap of “Veep,” oh boy! The episode opens with Jonah peepin’ and he creepin’ and he creepin’. Jonah rolls up in his fly Nissan […]

It’s weird to remember that prior to becoming a detached squinty enigma, Bob Dylan spearheaded a passionate campaign to free boxer Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, who was wrongly convicted of murder and served 19 years for a crime he didn’t commit. After a battle with prostate cancer, Carter died yesterday at age 76. Carter, who was […]

A celibate man told a lady reporter Sunday on CBS’s Face the Nation that businesses should have the right to eliminate contraceptive coverage in their employees’ insurance, because he hears tell that you can just walk into any 7-11 and buy rubbers. Kudos to host Norah O’Donnell for having enough self-control to refrain from telling […]

If you’re chilling this Easter morning and thinking “gee, I wish I could be pissed off at something ASAP,” the Times has got you covered with a big piece about how Republicans aren’t content with obsessing over Obamacare, because they’re able to split their attention and do the same with the Common Core standards. Yes, […]

Welcome to another edition of Derp Roundup, the weekly feature where we scrape the dumbest possible news leftovers off our overheated browser tabs, blend them into an almost-digestible slurry, and serve them up to you with a muffin and a warning to imbibe heavily. Our Prime Derp this week is actually not so much the […]

Meet Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore, who traded the second “l” in her first name for the magical ability to never accept the premise of any question asked by a member of the Liberal Media. Hayes asks her if she agrees that SuperFreedom CowActivist Cliven Bundy is in violation of the law and owes a million […]

As political satirical fun time bloggers, we applaud the new ease with which any candidate anywhere can make themselves a YouTube and spit out a campaign ad, because that really has been comedy gold for us over the past few years. Even the big folks have used YouTube to get weird, like Ted Cruz with […]

The other day, we brought you the most serious scandal of the 2014 midterms so far: the revelation that in 2012, Al Franken held two small traffic cones to his chest as if they were boobies. After the story was broken by Dead Breitbart’s Internet Home for Incoherent Outraged Babbling, it made its way to […]

This is nice: Old Handsome Joe Biden’s son Beau, the Attorney General of Delaware, announced today that he won’t be seeking reelection to a third term in office this year, so that he can concentrate on running for governor in 2016. In a statement, he says that the governor thing just sort of snuck up […]

Fox News is pretty sure that World Net Daily must know some real inside stuff about the armed-standoff goings-on at Bundy Ranch, like for instance the government causing the lunar eclipse. Also, the jackbooted thugs who come to seize yr stuff when you don’t pay your grazing fees for 197,000 years, those jackbooted thugs may […]
