Sen. David Vitter

Obama Says He’ll Veto Bill That Mandates Obamacare for Himself, Congress

Among the heaps of bullshit out there making the rounds, one of the most pernicious at the moment is that misdirected outrage some people are blathering about, in that President Obama says he’ll veto the bill that mandates Obamacare for himself and for Congress.

Do Not Overreach

Republican Overreach

I actually find myself hoping that some dipshite in the GOP will try to initiate impeachment proceedings aimed at President Obama. That would be the moment when the GOP would officially become a historical relic and could no longer field electable candidates because the Republican brand would be so damaged. Americans are getting tired of […]

Even though Romney didn’t win the election, the web site […]

Yes, Virginia. Stupid People Vote.

I saw a post on Facebook today that was simply breathtaking in its stupidity. Apparently it’s very popular with the wingnut crowd, because it’s been making the rounds since at least July of 2008. What surprised me was that the person who posted it was not a stupid person by any stretch of the imagination. […]
