  Common Core? Why Not An Exceptional American Core?

Ted Cruz Will ‘Repeal’ Common Core ‘Law’ When He Is ‘President’

Ted Cruz will do a faith-healing of America
In his amazing Liberty University speech where he announced that he’s running for President of Jesus, Ted Cruz promised to repeal every single word of an onerous federal law that oppresses America and is designed to promote socialism. Twice. First, he promised to repeal every single word of Obamacare on his “first day in office.” (Never mind that Sen. Cruz will actually spend January 20, 2017 watching someone else take the oath of office.) And then a little later in the speech, he also urged the well-scrubbed young people at Liberty University, Read more on Ted Cruz Will ‘Repeal’ Common Core ‘Law’ When He Is ‘President’…

Oh No Ted Cruz Forgot Something

Hold on, hold on, still thinkin' ...
Getting a national political Republican campaign up and running is hard, guys. Just ask Sen. Rafael Edward Cruz, who’s declaring his candidacy today. There are just tons of little details you need to anticipate, like filing all the paperwork for an exploratory committee, setting up a PAC, asking Sheldon Adelson’s handlers if he prefers that you spit or swallow, and of course buying the website URL that consists of your own name plus “dot com.” Read more on Oh No Ted Cruz Forgot Something…

Morning Maddow: Jeb Bush’s Website Violates Everybody’s Privacy, Oops (Video)

Oh, those fabulous Bushes
Rachel Maddow loves the Bush family almost as much as we do. Especially their talent for putting their foot in it, as President George H.W. Bush did when he seemed amazed by a supermarket scanner during his 1992 reelection campaign. Supposedly, he was amazed not by the scanner itself, but by its advanced features, like being able to read torn labels, but mostly, she says, it just looked like he was unfamiliar with the “fundamental basics of peasant life, like how you pay for stuff at the store.” Read more on Morning Maddow: Jeb Bush’s Website Violates Everybody’s Privacy, Oops (Video)…

Connecticut Unable To Get An Election This Morning

Whoops! (yes, it's shopped. Connecticut is not tropical. Yet.)
Update: new development; see end of post. Elections never run flawlessly, and it’s not unusual — and no, not an indication of wholesale fraud — to hear of voting machine glitches and snags. We’re quite willing to accept that there’s nothing nefarious going on when one or two touch screen machines screw up, though that’s also a good argument for good old optical-scan ballots, too. And then there’s more unfortunate applications of Murphy’s Law on Election Day, like how the Georgia secretary of state’s “find your polling place” website crashed this morning. Again, that seems like a glitch, not frauding, although that one looks a lot hinkier in the context of the state maybe losing tens of thousands of new registration applications.

Stephen Colbert Lurves The Sarah Palin Channel Almost As Much As We Do

He's a fine one to talk -- he's quitting too
Stephen Colbert is just thrilled that Sarah Palin has started a new online TV channel where you can spend $9.95 a month to see her do “exactly what she’s always done, only — mmm– nothing else.” And sure, maybe it costs more than Netflix, but it promises to be “just as good as House of Cards, with even more threatening monologues into camera.” But who is Stephen Colbert to mock Sarah Palin for quitting? He’s quitting too, after all. Read more on Stephen Colbert Lurves The Sarah Palin Channel Almost As Much As We Do…

Ted Cruz’s Insane Jihad On U.S. Government Totally Validated By This One Meme He Saw

Senior Canadiano El Senator Ted Cruz has gotten a little guff. From his colleagues, from the American people, from that mean old Andrea Mitchell. But he has stood firm! He has stood firm in fighting for … well, nobody is sure anymore. Like, at first it was against Obamacare, but then everybody was like dudes we hate you for shutting the government down over Obamacare, so then they changed it to “we don’t even know what we want,” which, points for self-awareness. And then there was some stuff about how it was about “spending” and “the debt,” which is so self-evidently insane that they may have shut up about it by now? We are not sure. Now it is about “entitlements,” maybe? But Ted Cruz is still fighting that one good fight against Obamacare, and its terrible no good very bad website. Which makes the government shutdown — and possible worldwide depression once we breach that bad ol’ debt ceiling — totally worth it. But here’s a question, and we are not Ezra Klein, so we do not know the answer to this, maybe someone can help us out?

Texas Will End Teen Pregnancy By Spending $1.2 Million Telling Teens To Keep It In Their Pants

Texas, which has some of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the country, is ready to put a stop to all that: at a cost of only $1.2 million, it has unveiled a brand new website, www.ourtown4teens.org, that promotes abstinence but doesn’t include a single word about contraception. Problem: Solved! As everyone knows, once you explain to teenagers that they should not have the sex, they will say, “Aha! That is perfectly logical! I shall now keep myself pure!” And once that’s happened, they will also be too busy to even think about having sex, because they will all be chasing down the millions of monkeys flying out of their own butts. Which, once they catch, they will probably have sex with. Read more on Texas Will End Teen Pregnancy By Spending $1.2 Million Telling Teens To Keep It In Their Pants…
