Imagine If…

Filed in National, Science and Health by on September 21, 2012 27 Comments

Republicans embraced the anti-vaccine idiotic message:

I’m glad that (apart from Donald Trump) the anti-vaccine movement isn’t really linked to the right. Can you imagine if vaccine skepticism were seized on by the right-wing noise machine? It would spread like wildfire. A third of Americans simply wouldn’t vaccinate their children, insisting that the health effects of vaccination are just a “theory.” Every Republican in Congress would have to sign an anti-vaccine pledge. There’d be movements to make vaccines illegal in the red states, and dispensers of vaccines would be defunded in those states, and their offices would be shut down. Right-wing billionaires would bankroll documentaries linking vaccination to Hitler and eugenicism, and the Fox/talk radio crazies would flock to those documentaries, which would break box-office records. Half the books on the bestseller list would have covers depicting Democratic politicians as Dr. Mengele.

So… I guess there’s a silver lining?

I Have A Theory… Kentucky Republicans Are Idiots

Filed in Science and Health by on August 17, 2012 6 Comments

Kentucky Republican Senators were all on board for educational standards until they discovered that those standards included *gasp!* evolution. In an exchange with officials from ACT, the company that prepares Kentucky’s new state testing program, those lawmakers discussed whether evolution was a fact and whether the biblical account of creationism also should be taught in […]

We did away with the asshat of the day posts a while ago (too much to keep up with). So today I offer a grab bag of asshattery.

See What Crazy Eileen Started – UPDATED

Filed in National by on May 21, 2012 13 Comments

We all remember Crazy Eileen, one of the first birthers to go public. Well, Arizona, not satisfied with being the batshit crazy place it’s become, has just added a new ingredient to the mix – birtherism. Their Secretary of State has indicated he may not allow President Obama’s name to appear on the ballot because he’s not convinced he was born in the US.

Obama Will Veto House Measure on Student Loans

As we posted yesterday, the House was going to vote on a Student Loan extension. The legislation passed H.R.4628: Interest Rate Reduction Act which reduces funding for the Prevention and Public Health Fund and now H.R.4628 will surely face a veto if it makes it to the White House.

NRO: Women Using Birth Control and Family Planning are Part of a “Suicide Cult”

Filed in National by on March 26, 2012 7 Comments

I normally don’t visit the Crazy Corner (Yes, that is a link to crazy town, so consider yourself warned), but this article exposes the Conservative mindset vividly. Michael Walsh is counting the numbers in a them vs us game and is panicked that his side is losing. That’s really all this article is about – women deciding when to have children is a dangerous thing we need to stop, feminists have secretly formed a suicide pact to wipe out civilization, and the browning of the world population.

My guess is that it was a slow day in the Oklahoma State Senate. Why else would this rethuglican legislator introduce this bill? An Oklahoma Republican is pushing a bill to outlaw the use of human fetuses in food, because, as he says, “there is a potential that there are companies that are using aborted […]

New Hampshire Republicans are taking textual originalism to a whole new level: three lawmakers have proposed a bill that requires that all legislation find its origin not in the U.S. constitution, but an English document crafted in 1215.

Virginia GOP Officially Becomes Autocratic

Filed in National by on December 29, 2011 4 Comments

I always love hearing the Fatman and that other RWNJ on WDEL spout off about how Democrats and Liberals are nothing but a bunch of socialists and “fellow travelers.” Apparently they haven’t been paying attention to the Virginia Republican Party.

The Virginia GOP has declared that anyone who wants to vote in the Presidential primary must sign a loyalty oath. Yes, you read that correctly, you must swear allegiance to the GOP and cross your heart and hope to die that you will vote for whomever the GOP presidential nominee is.

So Much for Checks and Balances

Apparently Newt Gingrich doesn’t believe in our system of checks and balances. Continuing his crusade against the courts, Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich railed against judges “imposing secularism” on the country on this morning’s Face The Nation. Arguing that “activist judges” who make disagreeable decisions should be held accountable before Congress, he told Bob Schieffer […]

Rick Perry is scared that he’s going to be nothing more than an asterisk in the race for the Rethuglican-Confederate-Teabagger party nomination for President. So much so that he’s now pandering to the extreme right wing for votes in Iowa. He is running the following gay-baiting ad on TV out there. Click through….

Brain Freeze(?)!

It seems that the older some congressmen get, especially from colder climes, the more ornery and arrogant they become. Case in point – Rep. Don Young (Teabag-AK), who’s been in Congress since 1973. During a hearing on Friday, Young went head-to-head with a witness before the House Natural Resources Committee, which Young used to chair. […]
