Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow Wines and Dines all the Presidential Elephants

Hello, I’m Pastor Pillow! Thank you for joining me this evening at Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s Ocean Room.  I realize everyone is surprised to see one another again so soon after that grueling Charleston debate.  Governor Christie, now-now, no stink-eye stare at Dr. Carson.  Here, have some North Carolina osetra imperial caviar before you gobble […]

Desperate David Vitter Uses Duck Dynasty For Political Redemption

Remember when Duck Dynasty was still a thing? Remember how you couldn’t go into any gas station without seeing their merchandise? Well, here in Louisiana, they’re still kinda sorta a thing – especially if you’re a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is struggling in the polls against a Democrat you’ve repeatedly linked to President Obama. A […]

Bobby Jindal Crashes And Burns As Fox News Calls Out His Horrible Record In Louisiana

Fox News is often referred to as the media arm of the Republican Party. It also serves as a placeholder job for politicians like former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee in between presidential campaigns, as well as a free platform for candidates like Louisiana’s governor Bobby Jindal. Jindal hasn’t had great poll numbers from the very […]

Rick Perry Says That Unlike Obama, He Will Heal America – By Stopping Abortion

The anti-abortion National Right To Life Committee is having their annual convention this year in New Orleans. I know this because my very conservative Catholic mother is going, I’ve been hearing about it for weeks, and now she’s thrilled because my sister scored her tickets to a prayer breakfast tomorrow with Ms. Kay from the […]

Rick Perry Announces He’s Running For President With An Embarrassing Song About Himself

Ok, can everyone in the Republican Party who is not running for president in 2016 please announce this? I figure this way we can then assume everyone else is running by default, and that can save us a whole lot of time and trouble. Today, Rick Perry announced that he was also joining the rapidly […]

Louisiana Boy Suspended From Public School For Having Long Hair

Louisiana, especially the rigidly conservative Protestant part of the state from Alexandria northwards, has a real problem with separating church and state. If you have ever spent any time in the state, you’d know what I’m talking about; if you don’t, bear in mind that the governor wanted to slash college funding but keep tax […]

Bobby Jindal Wants To Slash Funding For Education, Duck Dynasty Will Keep Tax Breaks

On an almost daily basis, I wonder why the hell I’m living in Louisiana. Scorching heat and humidity, roads that look like they’re from a third-world country, and a corrupt criminal justice system in which it’s often hard to tell the criminals from the police – that’s Louisiana. If you’ve ever tried to figure out […]

Bobby Jindal’s Obsession With The Robertson Family Is Downright Creepy

I’m a firm believer in not making stupid people famous, but when you’re dealing with a political party that plays to the lowest common denominator, it’s impossible to avoid talking about people like Louisiana’s own Bobby Jindal. Governor Jindal, who has done everything except officially announce he’s running for a Fox News contributor spot the […]

There’s No Difference Between Phil Robertson And The Westboro Baptist Church

Phil Robertson, poster child for right-wing fringe, reality show star, and hater of all things not fundamentalist Christian-y, gave another speech last Friday. Speaking at a prayer breakfast in Vero Beach, Florida, Robertson created a hypothetical situation involving the rape of two children, the decapitation of a mother, and the castration of a father. The […]
