Everyone’s least favorite irritant, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) has announced that he’ll be primary-challenging Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) next year. In case you’re unfamiliar with Stockman, he’s the first-term congressman who basically took over Ron Paul’s old district and has since spent the first half of his term as a Twitter troll.
- Stockman told World Net Daily, "We are extremely disappointed in the way [Cornyn] treated his fellow congressmen and broke the 11th commandment and undermined Ted Cruz's fight to stop Obamacare."
- John Cornyn's no liberal. But he's also clearly not crazy enough -- or pure enough -- for the tea party radicals who are infecting his party.
An influential man preaching income redistribution, peace, love and understanding? If today’s right wing media had been around in the time of Jesus, I don’t think they’d be welcoming him with open arms. “Loose Woman Claims ‘Virgin Birth’ In Bethlehem” “Radical Cleric John The Baptist Promotes ‘Jesus’” “Far Left Radical Claims Poor Will Be Rewarded… Read More
Whenever screechers Mark Levin and Glenn Beck get together on an idea, it’s bound to be profoundly stupid. Levin floated a plan in one of his dozens of books in which he proposed amending the Constitution via a “convention of the states,” based upon one of the methods in Article V of the Constitution.
This time around, Nugent, writing for the generally sociopathic publication World Net Daily, came up with what he believes is a fair compromise. He’ll agree to support closing the gun show loophole if liberals agree to disenfranchise anyone who doesn’t pay income taxes — closing the “federal voting loophole.”
A recent article in Elle magazine, seemingly reprinted from 1973, helps needy women figure out how to deal with the scourge of a busy pseudo-boyfriend who has, like, a job. After a giant splash ad promising “50 Date Night Dresses He’ll Flip For,” Elle presents the story “Meet the Thursday Guy: The New Problem Plaguing… Read More
Greenwald, for the gazillionth time, made the case that just because the government uses foreign surveillance, it will absolutely turn those operations on its own people, targeting each of us personally and without warrants. And until it does, the government is using the fear that it might collect your cat memes and porn habits to keep you in line.
South Carolina embarrassed itself yet again (this year month week), when Pickens County Sheriff Rick Clark decided it was an excellent idea to be publicly and unforgivingly absurd, by stating that he would not be following the President’s order to fly the U.S. flag at half-mast to show respect for the life and loss of Nelson Mandela. Clark’s reasoning, according to his Facebook page is that, “Nelson Mandela did great things for his country and was a brave man but he was not an AMERICAN!!! The flag should be lowered at our Embassy in S. Africa, but not here.”
When I first became involved in progressive Democratic politics, it was the worst of times. Bush won election with the help of the Supreme Court, and Democrats were running scared. The Democrats were further shocked into paralysis after 9/11 and were decimated in the 2002 midterm elections. Not coincidentally, this was a great time for… Read More
Nelson Mandela is the latest progressive icon that the right has tried to claim as their own. Recent examples of this phenomenon include John F. Kennedy, Franklin Roosevelt and Martin Luther King. This is a sign of a key contradiction at the heart of conservatism. Famously, William F. Buckley described conservatism as standing athwart history,… Read More
