Rand Paul Challenges Bernie Sanders to a Debate After Comparing His Policies to Jim Crow Laws (Video)

The rhetoric surrounding what Bernie Sanders calls “socialism” is, at times, ridiculous. From people calling him a communist (apparently unaware that communism and socialism are two entirely different things), to not realizing that we already have several very popular socialist programs in this country, it’s amazing how one single word can ignite so much fear within so […]

Choosing a President for Alderaan Reasons: Modern Mythmaking & the “Dark Side” of Presidential Politics

Myth matters. Gilgamesh slayed the great beast Humbaba. Persephone was abducted by Hades. Anubis weighs hearts at the threshold of eternity. There is great meaning to be gleaned from each of these mythological still shots, a meaning that does not depend on historical veracity, on whether they actually happened, or happen.   Oh, and here’s […]

Sad Troll Ron Paul Issues Dire Warning About Liberals to Conspiracy Nutter Alex Jones

Last week, GOP presidential candidate Rand Paul claimed that if Bernie Sanders was elected, the possibility of genocide in the United States would exist. Paul falsely compared Sanders’ belief in democratic socialism to the communist dictatorships of Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot, and stated that socialism could lead to genocide to those who resist it. […]

Rand Paul Shamelessly Links Bernie Sanders To Genocides Throughout History

Rand Paul’s campaign is faring poorly these days, sitting at just 4% in Republican primary polling. Much to the chagrin of libertarian-leaning Republicans who were sure that Rand Paul was proof their ideas would finally break out into the mainstream of party politics, it seems like hardly anyone is taking him seriously. It’s certainly no […]

Maddow: ‘Starting to Feel Bad’ at a ‘Human Level’ About How Pathetic Rand Paul Has Become (Video)

It wasn’t too long ago that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was being talked about as one of the possible favorites to win the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. While I never bought into that rhetoric, it’s undeniable that he was the talk of the party for various moments of the last couple of years. Even if […]

KY GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Matt Bevin Accidentally Called For Drug Testing Seniors

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy has been the laughingstock of late night shows recently for his series of verbal flubs, like referring to Hungary as “Hungria” and discussing the “band on America.” While everyone has been mocking McCarthy (who has now announced he will not run for Speaker of the House), a Republican candidate for governor […]

Dr. Ben Carson And Dr. Oz Are More Alike Than You Think

As Dr. Ben Carson has risen in the Republican polls, he’s made a series of increasingly bizarre statements. In Pennsylvania, he’s tied with billionaire Donald Trump and trails him by five points in Iowa. Carly Fiorina has also cut into Trump’s lead, based on strong appearances in her first two debates. The popularity of the […]

10 Things I Expect to Happen During Tonight’s Republican Presidential Debate

Ah, the big day is upon us – the second Republican presidential debate. While the first one wasn’t quite as outrageous as I had expected (or hoped), I have a feeling tonight is going to go much differently. I think most candidates believed going into the first debate the Trump would do himself in. While […]

Ben Carson Won’t Rule Out The Idea of Drone Strikes Near Mexican Border

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson is currently sitting third in the GOP primary polls and is trying to break out of the Donald Trump vacuum that has sucked all the air out of the race. Try as they might, Republican contenders have said and done almost anything they can short of actually physically assaulting an […]

Rand Paul Says Immigrant Workers Are Taking Our Jobs Because Americans Lack A ‘Work Ethic’

Whenever the subject of poverty and the economy come up, Republicans often like to blame the poor for being lazy and unwilling to better themselves. At the same time, they like to complain (as Donald Trump is doing right now) that American jobs are being lost to foreign workers. Oh yeah, and on top of […]
