To Ted Cruz And The Religious Right: The Gay Marriage War is Over – And You Lost

Almost a year ago, I wrote an article called “An Open Letter to the Religious Right: The Gay Marriage War is Over – And You Lost” as Hawaii legalized same-sex marriage and Illinois was prepared to do the same. Yesterday, the Supreme Court declined to hear the appeals of multiple lower court rulings that declared […]

Speaker Boehner Saved the GOP by Refusing to Allow an Impeachment Vote

To be honest with you, I was kind of hoping that the Republican-controlled House would go with an attempt to impeach President Obama. This whole “let’s sue the president instead” alternative that Speaker John Boehner somehow convinced the Tea Party caucus to accept is a consolation prize to them. To political junkies like myself, impeachment […]

The Tea Party is Throwing a Racist Hissy Fit in Mississippi

The tea party in Mississippi is really angry.  After all, how dare African Americans vote, right?  Because that’s pretty much the message I’m getting after Chris McDaniel lost his Republican primary battle against incumbent Thad Cochran. Especially after a few Democrats, who happen to be African American, admitted to voting for Cochran. In Mississippi, you don’t have […]

In previous posts like “Why I left the Republican Party” and “I Didn’t Leave the GOP – It Left Me,” I’ve discussed my history and involvement with the Republican Party and why I changed my party affiliation over a decade ago.

Disgusting Tea Party Candidate Said Female Politician Only Got On Ballot Because of Her ‘Boobies’

I’ll admit, I love when I see tea party Republicans and Libertarians clash.  Being that I think they’re both utterly delusional, seeing their craziness collide can be quite entertaining. But what Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel (the tea party candidate for United States Senate) said about one-time Libertarian candidate for Governor of Alabama Loretta Nall was […]

Congressman Steve Stockman Threatens To Arrest Anyone Who Publishes His Mugshot, So Here’s His Mugshot

In 1977, Texas Republican congressman Steve Stockman spent a weekend in jail for traffic violations. While he was in the pokey, his jailers discovered the twenty-year-old future politician had Valium in his underpants, because where else would you keep it? Since Stockman was arrested, he has a mugshot, and he is very perturbed that said […]

Tea Party Nation President Writes Possibly the Most Insane Letter You Will Ever Read

I thought long and hard about how to write this article.  I literally just read quite possibly the most insane thing I’ve ever come across.  It was written by the president of the Tea Party Nation, Judson Phillips, in response to Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoing the anti-LGBT bill that was passed by the Arizona […]

How Reprehensible Can Their Rape Comments Get? Look at What This Maine Republican Said

This article isn’t going to have any fancy lead-in, because this story is absolutely atrocious. Recently a liberal activist and blogger, Mike Tipping, dug up some of the most vile comments that I’ve ever read, coming from Maine State Representative Lawrence Lockman. And when I say “vile,” I mean it in every sense of the […]
