Rep. Steve King: Ted Cruz Is God’s Pick To ‘Restore The Soul Of America’

If you asked the current GOP candidates for president, most would likely tell you that god told them to run. Either they’re imagining things, or god is trolling a whole bunch of Republicans by encouraging all of them to declare their candidacy. Remember how well that worked out for Michele Bachmann in 2012? As Donald Trump […]

GOP Rep. Steve King: I’m Just As Hispanic And Latino As Julián Castro

The Republican Party is having a very hard time attracting the Hispanic vote, and Donald Trump’s antics are only making it worse. This isn’t a new thing either as Republican politicians have made demonizing Hispanic immigrants a central theme of their campaigns, especially in deep red states where many industrial jobs have been moved to […]

Jon Stewart Explodes at the Republicans Defending Donald Trump’s Racist Comments (Video)

As we head into what might be the most entertaining presidential race of any of our lifetimes, I still can’t believe Jon Stewart is leaving. The 2016 election is made for someone like Stewart. While I have high hopes for Trevor Noah, I just can’t see anyone replacing everything that Jon Stewart brings as a political commentator […]

Rep. Steve King Is Very Concerned About America Becoming Less White (Video)

It’s not a huge secret that Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa) has a real problem with immigrants. Our archives here are full of stories of the prejudiced things he’s said and done concerning immigrants, particularly those coming from south of our border with Mexico. What you don’t hear from Steve King is any kind of rhetoric […]

Rep. Steve King Proposes Legislation That Proves He Knows Almost Nothing About The Constitution

The Republican “love” for our Constitution is a fairly fickle thing. While they claim to be the party for Constitutional values, their policies and stances on many issues say otherwise. The truth is, when it comes to our Constitution, conservatives really only “love” the Second and Tenth Amendments – and the only reason why they […]

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 […]

The Bachmann Diaries: The Mall Of America Will Not Fall To Terrorists!

Dear Diary, It’s been awhile since I’ve had time to write my thoughts down. Who knew retirement would be busier than being in Congress? I’m hounded wherever I go by people begging me to run for president, my opinions are in higher demand than ever, and I’m trying to get used to Marcus’s “deep voice.” […]

Power Rankings Week 5: The 10 Most Absurd Conservatives of the Week

Welcome to the fifth installment of my weekly power rankings.  As always, I keep it pretty easy to understand.  What I do is take the most ridiculous conservatives of the previous week and rank them accordingly based on whatever nonsense they said or did, with links so you can check it out for yourselves. Again, […]

The “War On Whites” And The GOP’s Very Serious Problem With Racism

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Alabama) made an absolutely absurd statement while talking with right-wing host Laura Ingraham in response to National Journal’s Ron Fournier and his appearance on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. This ridiculous choice of words ended up inspiring the currently trending Twitter hashtag #WarOnWhites. To give you the background, there was a […]

Rand Paul Flees While Steve King Belittles DREAMers on Immigration (Video)

I’ve seen a lot of cowardly and disgusting things covering politics, but this video is one of the most reprehensible things I’ve ever seen. It’s a short video of two DREAMers who confronted Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Rep. Steve King (R-IA) concerning their stance on our immigration policies. But they didn’t really get to […]
