Mike Huckabee has revealed my secret - Democrats have turned me into a beggar for cheap government birth control because I'm a helpless victim of my gender and I need pills to control my libido! Meanwhile the GOP proves how much it respects me by giving me mandatory transvaginal ultrasounds and freeing me from the burdens of making decisions about my body and earning equal pay - what 'war on women'?Continue reading
There are so many holes in Governor Christie's story (if he's truly eager to get to the bottom of something he just learned about, wouldn't he ask a few questions of his staffers?, how could he lose 2 nights sleep the day after he just found out, etc.), it's way too easy to refute it. So I'm taking the low road, making musical fun of the whole thing. It's just too tempting!Continue reading
In the recent flap over Fox anchor Megyn Kelly's comments about Santa and Jesus both being white, Ms. Kelly needs to remember some basic maternal wisdom:
- 'Historical' and 'verifiable' are not subjective - check your facts and your dictionary before you go on air (and remember, we can watch the recording!)

This article chronicles Bush family failures of the past and the downward spiral of the GOP since the lunatics have taken over the asylum.Continue reading
This article gives you the facts you to need to easily shred one of the most infuriating teabagger arguments: the Democrat Party is the party of racism. While that may have been true prior to the failed Dixiecrat party, it's not true today. This article details the defection of white Southern Democrats to the GOP and Mitt Romney ultimately winning the South.Continue reading
NeoCon and avowed Obama hater Dinesh D'Souza‘s movie is no more a documentary than Fox News is fair and balanced. It’s propaganda, designed to cash in on the anti-Obama sentiment of the Radical Right who will no doubt believe it as easily as they do the distortions, misinformation, and outright lies of the GOP and Fox News.Continue reading
Barry James recounts childhood memories of visits to his grandparents home in a small Texas town where Mrs. Kieke, a former school teacher, impressed upon him the importance of education to a free and self governed people. Like Mrs. Kieke the founders also believed education essential to self government. Thomas Jefferson founded the Univerity of Virginia in 1819 and, in 1817, proposed a plan for public education. Jefferson believed education of vital importance and felt "no other sure foundation can be devised for the preservation of freedom and happiness."Continue reading
