Bill O’Reilly Forced To Explain How TV Works To Sarah Palin After She Whines That He Was Mean (Video)


Who would have ever thought that a single speech in Iowa would have been the thing that finally brought down tea party hero Sarah Palin. Granted, she’s been a running joke for the majority of Americans for years, but following the embarrassing speech she gave a few days ago even many conservatives are running from […]

Nancy Grace Makes an Absolute Fool Out of Herself During Ridiculous Anti-Marijuana Tirade (Video)


I have absolutely no idea why Nancy Grace has her own show. I’ve literally never met a single person who claims to follow her in any sort of serious way, and I can’t imagine who would view this woman as a credible source on much of anything. She’s just awful. And while I wouldn’t call myself […]

John Boehner Admits Congressional Republicans Have Been Inept At Getting Anything Done


One of the biggest problems I run across when dealing with politics is that the vast majority of Americans have no clue how our government works. Sure, most people can name who’s president, but far fewer know anything at all about Congress. The typical American has no idea what the House or Senate really does […]

Rick Perry Caught Blatantly Lying About the Unemployment Rate


Sometimes I do contemplate how much easier it would be if I were a Republican. For members of the GOP it’s not about truth or reality, it’s just about saying whatever they think conservatives want to hear. All it would take for me to have thousands of conservatives blindly cheering nearly every word I say […]

Democrats Accuse Republicans Of Being Behind The Real Benghazi Cover-Up


Recently I wrote an article warning people about “passionate activists.” But in that warning I didn’t just mean activists, I meant any individual or group that is overly passionate about one particular thing. Many times I’ve found those people or groups that are overly committed to one issue tend to seek out information that confirms […]

Watch: Bill Nye Mocks Deflategate, Tells Americans to ‘Give a F*ck’ About Climate Change


Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last week or so, it’s likely that you’ve heard about the now infamous “Deflategate” controversy swirling around the New England Patriots and the fact that 11 of the 12 footballs they used during the AFC Championship game were found to be under-inflated. Words cannot express how […]

Republican Congressman Makes Unbelievably Absurd Statements About Marijuana Legalization


Every once in a while I come across a story where I’m not even sure how to describe the stupidity that I just came across. This recently happened after Sarah Palin’s Iowa Freedom Summit debacle where she gave a speech so incoherent that it was almost impossible to transcribe. But that was just Palin being […]

Jon Stewart Mocks Sarah Palin’s Iowa Gibberish: ‘Ma’am You’ve Got To Leave The Walgreens’ (Video)


After I watched Sarah Palin’s now infamous Iowa Freedom Summit speech, one of the first thoughts that went through my mind (after my brain tried to process the insanity) was that I really hope Jon Stewart dedicates at least part of his show on Monday to this absurd nonsense. Thankfully my prayers were answered as […]

Jon Stewart Slams The New Ideas Republicans Have For 2016: “It’s The Exact Same F*cking Thing!” (Video)


It never ceases to amaze me how conservatives continue to still buy into Republican economic rhetoric. It’s literally the same crap year after year, decade after decade. Their entire economic ideology rests upon tax cuts and deregulation. While economics is far from a simple subject, the fact that demand is the leading driver behind almost […]

The DNC Responds to Sarah Palin’s Embarrassing Iowa Gibberish with Two Words


As I’ve said plenty of times in the past, Sarah Palin is the person voters on the left should be hoping gets as much media attention as possible and becomes one of the leading faces for the GOP. Listen, I’m not saying that hearing her voice isn’t akin to hearing nails screech across a chalkboard. I […]
