Sarah Palin Pathetically Tries to Exploit Christ for Money (Video)


Christmas is just around the corner, which means that Republicans are out in force with their fictional “war on Christmas” nonsense that they churn out every year. It’s really quite comical. As if there’s some active push to remove Christ from Christmas. The only removal of Christ most liberals I know want is from places where […]

It’s Time We Start Calling Cop Block What It Actually Is: A Hate Group


A few months ago I wrote an article warning liberals that they were being duped by many of these so-called “police accountability” websites and Facebook pages. I explained that by buying into their propaganda, these liberals were basically supporting radical anti-government right-wing groups. What these various organizations try to do is attempt to hide their contempt for government […]

President Obama Blasts Ridiculous Republican Propaganda on Keystone XL Pipeline

While there are clearly much bigger issues about which Republicans have acted absurd, the debate over the Keystone XL pipeline still ranks near the top of the absurdity list. This whole thing baffles me. For years Republicans have been trying to sell this project as some big “job creator” that’s going to help the United […]

Fox News Host Disgustingly Lashes Out at Children Living in Poverty (Video)


In an attempt to apparently prove that there are no lows to which Fox News will not stoop, Outnumbered co-host Stacey Dash decided to attack the children of families living in poverty. Because, you know, children are apparently just greedy little moochers abusing the system and looking for a free handout. Discussing a recent Census Bureau report that […]

Pope Francis Celebrates Birthday by Showing Republicans What Real Christian Values Look Like


I was raised with the belief that actions speak louder than words. Any fool can talk a big game, but words are essentially meaningless unless there are actions to back them up. That premise alone is one of the driving forces behind my opposition to Republicans and the so-called “conservative Christian.” Sure, these people call […]

Outgoing Republican WI State Senator Rips GOP: ‘How Much Pain Do We Have to Dish Out?’


Despite my fairly well known disdain for the Republican party, I do realize that not all Republicans are right-wing lunatics. Though as the years progress, “moderate Republicans” are going the way of CD’s and flip phones. In fact, I’ve told the few moderate Republicans that I’ve met the last several years that they’re better off […]

Nearly Everything Republicans Have Said About President Obama Has Been Absolutely Wrong


I’ve often joked that I would like to live inside the mind of a conservative for a day just to see what the world is like from the perspective of someone who doesn’t seem to live in reality. The sad truth is conservatives often seem impervious to the facts when dealing with all sorts of topics. […]

The Republican Party and the Continued Rise of the “American Taliban”


In the past I’ve written a couple of articles professing my belief that the Republican party, especially the tea party aspects of it, have become a domestic terrorist group. On the recently ended HBO show The Newsroom, character Will McAvoy (played by Jeff Daniels) referred to them as the “American Taliban,” and I think that’s a […]

Michele Bachmann Hilariously Tries to Claim that Liberals Fear Her ‘Truth’ (Video)


When Michele Bachmann first announced that she would not be seeking re-election, I celebrated like most people on the left did. Then it kind of hit me that I was going to miss her being one of the leading faces in Congress making the Republican party look like complete idiots. It’s why I’ve embraced people […]

Stephen Colbert Goes Out With A Bang in Amazing Final Segment of ‘The Colbert Report’ (Video)


Ever since it was announced that Stephen Colbert was leaving The Colbert Report to take over for David Letterman on CBS, I wondered what his last show was going to be like. How do you properly send off a show as unique as his? For nearly a decade, his show featured a man pretending to be another […]
