Political Performance Art

I had this very weird dream the other night. I dreamed that Donald Trump’s entire campaign was an elaborate ploy to throw the Republican party into total chaos. Unfortunately, not included in the dream was whether this was for the benefit of the GOP (under the theory that the Republican party has to hit bottom […]

Christian Values

There’s a funny article in the Daily Kos entitled “You Cannot Be a Republican and a Christian“. Here’s one particularly funny paragraph to entice you to go read the whole thing: I know that many of Christ’s teachings are open to interpretation, but so many of the people who make a point of asking “What […]

Party of No See, Hear, Speak

© Rebecca Hendin In the not too distant past, vast herds of conservative elephants roamed the great savannas of middle America, but today due to inevitable habitat loss and demographic changes, they are on their way to being endangered, if not eventually extinct.

The Face of the GOP?

© Lalo Alcaraz As the things that come out of the mouth of Donald Trump become uglier and stupider, the more popular he gets with Republicans. He is now polling ahead of all other Republican presidential candidates. Doesn’t that tell you pretty much everything you need to know about the GOP?

Love and Respect

Some quotes from Helen Philpot (of Margaret and Helen): It’s just so odd that all this hatred and discrimination seems to be emanating from a bunch of Republicans who claim to represent Jesus. Now there is a conundrum. As a Christian politician do you abide by the law of the land and treat others with […]

Bush-Bush!

© Tom Tomorrow Part of me (a rather small part) actually wants the upcoming presidential election to be between a Clinton and a Bush. Holy deja vu Batman! I have a question for readers. Leave your answers in the comments. Assume for a (brief) moment that the next president had to be picked from one […]

Jeb Bush Moves Right

Dispelling any idea that he might be a moderate Republican, Jeb Bush made it clear in an interview on Sunday that he is absolutely against gay rights. When asked if he believes there should be a constitutional right to marriage (which the mostly conservative Supreme Court could rule this summer), he said “I don’t”. Bush […]

Good News from the Republicans

I finally have something good to report about the Republicans. According to the LA Times, the GOP has given up on trying to repeal Obamacare. It only took five years, more than fifty repeal votes, and a few government shutdowns, but occasionally you can teach the Grand Old Party new tricks. According to a prominent […]

GOP Insults

There is a new “insult generator” that has an interesting twist. Insult generators are those websites that string together random words to insult someone or something. But the new one doesn’t do it randomly. It is the “Tea Party Insult Generator” and the twist is that it uses actual insults posted on John Boehner’s Facebook […]

Real Civics Lesson?

It sounded like a good idea to take fourth graders to their state legislature to observe how democracy works. In the spirit of learning by doing, students drafted a bill to learn the process of how a bill becomes law. They proposed House Bill 373, an act establishing the Red Tail Hawk as the New […]

Hold On!

© Jack Ohman After spending years trying to get rid of him, the Republicans are so happy that Eric Holder is stepping down as Attorney General that they are refusing to confirm his replacement Loretta Lynch, which will give Holder another six months on the job. You would think that after holding him in contempt […]

Satire for the Win

Andy Borowitz has two hilarious satirical articles about the continued GOP attempts to sabotage Obama’s negotiations with Iran: “Kim Jong-Un Feels Snubbed By Absence of Letter from Republicans” has the North Korean dictator complaining that it was hurtful for Republicans to send a letter to Iran and ignore his country. After all, North Korea already […]

Fractured Flickers

As a sign of how fractured the Republican party has become, a Republican group called the American Action Network (with ties to the House GOP leadership) is funding advertising against sitting Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert. The ads say: Global threats against our security are increasing … and some in Washington are playing political games with […]
