GOP Rep. John Duncan Calls Out Fellow Republicans For Supporting ‘Endless War’

It isn’t often that you’ll find me agreeing with Republicans on anything, but I believe in giving credit where and when it is due. Today I read an op-ed from Rep. John J. Duncan Jr. of Tennessee’s 2nd District over at The American Conservative and I have to admit, I was quite impressed. Granted, it’s one […]

Senator Tom Cotton Desperately Needs A Geography Lesson

Tom Cotton, current infamous Republican senator from Arkansas, appeared on Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer this past Sunday. The topic of discussion was Senator Cotton’s letter to Iran, and Cotton’s motivation for said letter. Many of the senators who signed the letter have backtracked their support, including John McCain, who has been telling anyone […]

John McCain Slams House Republicans, Calls Out John Boehner’s Petty Partisan Politics (Video)

Remember the days when Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was called the “maverick” because he often wasn’t afraid to speak his mind, work with Democrats or even call out his own party? Well, things have changed since the tea party rose to power, forcing Republicans like McCain to fear being primaried if they don’t subscribe to […]

Sen. John McCain Introduces Amendment That Will Destroy More American Jobs

Remember when Sen. John McCain was the Republican you kinda sorta liked, at least up until the point where his 2008 presidential campaign put the Quitta from Wasilla on the national stage? How about that time when he proclaimed “I have to tell you. Sen. Obama is a decent person and a person you don’t have […]

Maddow Blasts Republicans For Blocking Veterans Bill that was Passed 93-3 in Senate (Video)

It always makes me laugh when Republicans say that President Obama is the reason why Congress has failed to get anything done the last few years.  Because, you know, he was the one who held the debt ceiling hostage, shut down the government, refused to allow a vote on a bipartisan immigration bill and set […]

Gallup Poll Finds New, Not-So-Shockingly Low Opinion Of Congress

Last year, I wrote an article about Congress and their abysmal approval rating of 10% at the time. I even thought that perhaps, maybe just maybe, they’d get the message and start trying to boost their numbers ahead of 2014 since it was an election year. The shocking defeat of Eric Cantor in Virginia’s 7th […]

Jon Stewart on Iraq: Stop Seeking the Opinions of People ‘Who Were Wrong About the Whole F*cking Thing’

I can remember exactly where I was in March of 2003 when the Iraq war first started.  I was in a hotel, walking by a television in the lobby, with a news broadcast from CNN announcing that the war had officially begun. Yet here I sit in 2014, 11 years later, and Iraq is once […]

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) Votes Against VA Bill, Voted For Both Wars

This one is going to be a doozy, y’all and you’ll have to excuse me for being a little bit more angry than usual. From the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot files: 3 Republican senators. Bob Corker, Ron Johnson and Jeff Sessions were the only senators that voted against a bipartisan veterans’ benefits bill earlier this week. […]

John McCain Pathetically Leaves Iraq Security Briefing After “Only a Matter of Minutes”

Any shred of respect I had left for John McCain is now gone after he left yet another security briefing early just so he could go speak with reporters. Last week he left a classified briefing on the Bowe Bergdahl POW swap about halfway through so he could go talk with reporters to bash the […]
