May 23

Color me surprised.



California Green Car Company Tesla Repays Government Loan Early, Silencing GOP Critics 


Good news everyone — we've got a brand new story about Jose Canseco, the patheticwashed-upwife-beatingbankrupted pus-sac that hit a gillion home runs, got all his friends to do steroids, then wrote a book tattling on all of them.

The PED trailblazer has also jumped into new ways of abusing women: Moving on from his traditional "ram my wife's car" maneuver, he's decided to publically respond to rape allegations (bad idea) on Twitter (even worse) by tweeting his accuser's name (horrible) and phone number (fucking impossible to get any more awful). READ MORE »


Former halfterm Moose Queen Sarah Palin has some Thoughts, and she has left her dumb ol' Myface page for the Big League Pixels of Ghost Andrew Breitbart's Internet Home for Wayward Wig Addicts to bring em at ya! Her thoughts are on the IRS, and how people "live in fear of them." Sure, we'll bite!

This IRS scandal is especially terrible because Americans live in fear of the IRS like no other entity because this monstrous bureaucracy has the power to take your hard-earned money. Your wages are the sum of your labors; hence, the IRS has the power to steal the fruits of your labors. Average Americans live in fear of making an error on their tax returns that could cost them massive amounts of money, plus their reputation and good name. If a small business makes a mistake, the IRS can shut them down and send them to jail.

You know, we hate to sound like those police state proponents who say if you've done nothing wrong you've nothing to fear, but … well. You know.

We do not "live in fear" of the IRS. In fact, not to be a better citizen than you, but not only do we love jury duty, but we don't even hate paying our taxes! We go to the post office to mail out your Shut the Fuck Up Luke Russert coffee cups, and we brag to Cheryl, the lady there, that we are going to fill like AT LEAST THREE POTHOLES, and she is welcome!

Why might Sarah Palin "live in fear" of the IRS? Let's do some hypothesizin', dontchaknow, after the jump! READ MORE »


SC, seething hotbed of unbridled lust racism, cont. - SC Governor Nikki Haley has appointed a White Supremacist to her re-election campaign steering committee. (Raw Story)


Most schools in Oklahoma have no tornado shelters, because they cost too much. There are a few parents who paid a much higher price than a few extra tax dollars


Arizona state Rep. Juan Mendez quotes Carl Sagan, rather than saying a prayer before a session of the House. This shocking bit of Religious Freedom from an atheist would not stand, however, and aproper prayer was offered the next day to appease mighty Cthulhu -- or somebody. I don't know. In any case, we can be sure Arizona won't be cast into a lake of fire for the impiety of its legislature.

Eric Holder says that the US has killed four Americans with the drone program.


Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke should have spoken these words a long time ago, but better late than never.

Bernanke says in his prepared testimony before the Joint Economic Committee, "fiscal policy at the federal level has become significantly more restrictive."

"In particular," his testimony says, "the expiration of the payroll tax cut, the enactment of tax increases, the effects of the budget caps on discretionary spending, the onset of sequestration, and the declines in defense spending for overseas military operations are expected, collectively, to exert a substantial drag on the economy this year."

You can agree or disagree with individual parts of Bernanke's statement, but the general message is that cutting government spending, regardless of where the money was going, is preventing the economy from taking off quicker than it already is.

This is Bernanke at his most Keynesian moment in front of Congress.

Unfortunately I believe sequestration is here to stay because there's nothing easier in Washington than preserving the status quo.


The Virginia Republican Party has managed to nominate someone for the position of Lieutenant Governor that makes Ken Cuccinelli seem reasonable in comparison.

Fasten your seat-belt before reading E. W. Jackson's resume of hate courtesy ofRightWingWatch.

  • Referred to gays and lesbians as "perverted," "degenerate," "spiritually darkened" and "frankly very sick people psychologically, mentally and emotionally."
  • Said regarding homosexuality: "it poisons culture, it destroys families, it destroys societies; it brings the judgment of God unlike very few things that we can think of."
  • Argued that gays seek to "sexualize [children] at the earliest possible age" and use "totalitarian" tactics.
  • Claimed gays are hurting black women: "I've heard a lot of young black ladies that a lot of young black men seem to be gay. I've heard them complain about it, they say 'so many of these guys are homosexuals' and they are frankly frustrated by it."
  • Demanded the reinstitution of Don't Ask Don't Tell : "The military has been decimated by this lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender policy that has now been implemented. It's an abomination and it's only going to weaken us militarily and they need to undo it," warning that the policy's repeal is a "disaster of historic proportions."
  • Contended that homosexuality is "killing black men by the thousands" and said of gay rights advocates: "what they're promoting is killing people."
  • Called GLSEN founder and anti-bullying activist Kevin Jennings a "radical homosexual activist" who should have been "imprisoned" in a letter demanding he resign as head of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools.
  • Said there is a "direct connection" between gays and pedophilia.
  • Wondered how the Democratic Party "managed to hold on to black Christians in spite of an agenda worthy of the Antichrist."
  • Proclaimed that "the Democrat Party has shown itself to be anti-Christian, anti-Bible, anti-family, anti-life and anti-God… We're calling people to come out of the Democrat Party and not support candidates who represent its values and the rebellion that it represents against God. That certainly would include President Barack Obama."
  • Claimed that Democratic Party supporters are "insulting their faith and blaspheming their God" by supporting a "coalition of the godless."
  • Warned that ministers who support Obama "are going to have to answer to God" if they encourage "their congregations to support this abomination."
  • Said Democrats believe "that the Bible is a lie and indeed they are saying that God is a liar."
  • Argued that "liberalism and their ideas have done more to kill black folks whom they claim so much to love than the Ku Klux Klan, lynching and slavery and Jim Crow ever did, now that's a fact."
  • Maintained that Obama "seems to have a lot of sympathy for even radical Islam" and "clearly has Muslim sensibilities," arguing that Obama "certainly does have a lot of affection and favor for Islam, that seems to be his priority…Christianity, I don't really think about that with him, I really don't, that's a joke."
  • Compared Democratic leaders to "slave masters" who make sure that black people who disagree with them are "punished."
  • Insisted that Planned Parenthood "has been far more lethal to Black lives than the KKK ever was."
  • Predicted that African Americans will "overwhelmingly" vote against Obama as a result of his endorsement of marriage equality and a move of God to "stir the hearts of His people" and push them against the Democrats.
  • Maintained that the President and First Lady are both Communist sympathizers who dislike America.


But that's not all. He also apparently moonlights as a 3/5ths clause apologist. The three-fifths clause designated slaves as 3/5ths of a person. He also accused Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of being a fake Mormon during an interview with Glenn Beck.

If you're a member of the Republican party in Virginia, I suppose the good news it that you can finally present Ken Cuccinelli as the moderate.
