Stephen Colbert’s Impression of Sarah Palin is the Greatest Thing You’ll See This Week

Dawkins

Why is Salon Smearing Richard Dawkins With Misleading Headlines?

We have gone after Salon over the years mostly because of their ludicrously shrill opinion pieces that leave even the most diehard of liberals scratching their heads. But recently, a more worrying trend has emerged at the site, and one that threatens to ruin what is left of its reputation as a serious media outlet.

Sarah Palin Endorsed Donald Trump For President Because Sarah Palin is an Idiot

In the least surprising endorsement of the 2016 presidential election, the nation’s favorite Hockey Mom has endorsed her favorite guy to lead the civilized world — a bloviating real estate mogul who believes Mexican are diseased rapists and women who go to the bathroom are disgusting.

Why Paul Krugman and Hillary Clinton Are (Unfortunately) Right About Single Payer Health Care

Obama’s health care proposal was attacked from its inception, not only by the insurance companies, the right wing media, and rabid conservatives, but by corporate Democrats too. One can only imagine what will happen to a single payer plan from President Bernie Sanders.

No, You Do Not Have The Right To Lecture Ricky Gervais on Comedy

Obama’s Powerful State Of The Union Speech Was a Reminder of What We’re About to Lose

Ben Carson’s Foreign Policy Plan For America Makes Literally No Sense

Ben Carson’s foreign policy plan is a stupid as his economic plan. It doesn’t bear any relation to reality, and Carson is promoting it knowing full well his audience doesn’t have the intellectual ability to see how utterly ridiculous it is.

Conservative Commentator Eviscerates Ted Cruz’s ‘Un-Christian’ Behavior

Brooks’s column will be shared widely in liberal circles because it will resonate intellectually and reinforce long held beliefs about the lunacy of Republicans like Ted Cruz.

Cosby

Warning Signs You Are a Bill Cosby Supporter

Cosby may be found innocent in a court of law due to legal technicalities, much in the same way Wall St bankers were not prosecuted despite gambling the public’s retirement money away pre 2008. Just as no one doubts Wall St robbed the public, no one should doubt Bill Cosby raped and abused dozens of innocent women. Unless of course, you are an asshole.

Surprise, Surprise, Sarah Palin Has Something Dumb to Say About Obama Weeping

Well that was quick. After Obama bravely confronted the insane gun culture in America and showed raw emotion over the thousands of lives lost to gun violence in America, Sarah Palin has waded into the debate Hockey Mom style with the finesse of a drunken ballerina.
