Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow Erects ‘The Dennis Hastert Wing & A Prayer Center’

Hello, I’m Pastor Pillow! First, I would like to thank all members of the media for attending, as well as the entire Cubic Zirconium Cathedral Ministries congregation flock—along with our corporate sponsors, Hobby Lobby, Chick-fil-A and Lockheed Martin. Because so many dedicated CZC Ministries sheep showed up for this ribbon-cutting ceremony, I am pleased to […]

Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow Buys Some Lube, the Bible Belt Girds Its Loins

Hey, I’m Pastor Pillow! Thanks for letting me skip to the front of the line! I’m in a hurry. I have to pick up pizza for 10,000 hungry, quarantined parishioners right after I get out of here.

More Undeniable Proof That the Conservative Movement is Dying in America

If you listen to Republicans talk (because they’re masters at propaganda) you’d think conservatism is engulfing the United States and Americans are becoming more and more conservative every single day.

An obviously biased […]

Face the Ugly Truth: The Tea Party Is Conservatism in a Nutshell

I try not to use terms about selfish jerkholes that end up being demeaning to other, innocent people, but economist Umair Haque may have dispensed the bestest tweet ever! The Classical Greek definition of an ‘idiot’ was a person uninterested in the common good. In other words, modern conservatives. This line resonated with me partly […]

The Conservative March Toward a Society of Sociopaths

Last night I spent some time with a close friend (let’s call him Jake) and as we often do when we get together, we discussed politics.  You see, he’s a fantastic source for political insight because he doesn’t really follow politics or have any kind of political affiliation.  Hell, I don’t know if he’s ever […]

Think President Obama is a Liberal? Think Again! A Look Inside the Political Compass Test

Many years ago, when I first started studying political science, a professor of mine at Stony Brook University asked everyone in the class to take The Political Compass test. The purpose was to prove that political ideology is not linear, and not simply left and right. Rather, political ideology falls on a spectrum that includes […]
