Here’s Why Vladimir Putin Wants Donald Trump To Be President

Vladimir Putin has been fawning all over Donald Trump recently. It’s a bromance between two egotistical maniacs, and Donald Trump has welcomed the attention from Russia’s elected dictator. Just a couple of decades ago, if a Russian leader had endorsed a presidential candidate during the Cold War, it would have been the end of their […]

Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow, Franklin Graham and Jerry Falwell, Jr. Walk Into a Bar Mitzvah

Hello, I’m Pastor Pillow! Jerry, Jr., Franklin. Franklin, Jerry, Jr. I can hardly believe this is the first time the three of us have met—though of course I knew your fathers well. Sorry, Franklin, don’t want to bury your dad alongside Jerry, Sr., quite yet. But even I’ve got to admit that Billy would probably […]

Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Deacon Duvet Gives Thanks in Pastor Pillow’s Stead

Hello, I’m Deacon Duvet! Welcome to our Thanksgiving Day potluck at Cubic Zirconium Ministries! And my apologies on behalf of Pastor Pillow, who is unable to join us this evening. As you may be aware, he’s been called away to provide political futurism advice (or prophesying, as we call it behind the pulpit) for the […]

President Obama Schools ’60 Minutes’ Reporter on What Real Leadership Looks Like (Video)

There’s an odd infatuation in this country with Russian President Vladimir Putin. While I look at him as an insecure leader who’s trying desperately to seem powerful and macho, there are those who see his desperate tactics as signs that he’s a strong leader, even if they claim to disagree with what he does. You’ve […]

Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow Delivers King James Version Bibles to Flood-Ravaged South Carolina

Hello, I’m Pastor Pillow! I’m sorry, didn’t catch your name. Hard to understand what you’re saying with that snorkel in your mouth. Then again, you might be a-prophesyin’ in the tongues of angels. Try it again. Pblpblpblpblpblpblpbl. Nope. Sorry. Well, if you don’t look like a waterlogged lost sheep standing in line at this Satanic, […]

Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow Whips Huckabee and The Donald Into Biblical Shape

Hello, I’m Pastor Pillow! First, I want to thank each and every one of you Republican Presidential Candidates for coming here today.

Dear Vladimir Putin, With Much Love and Respect, Your Republican Admirers In both articles I took aim at Republicans […]

The Iron Curtain Of Vladimir Putin Is Starting To Rust Away

As you can imagine, the last few days have been a roller coaster ride on the Russian internet. The first reaction to the downing of MH-17 was panic. They were trying to shoot down Putin’s plane! Two doubles took off from Amsterdam at the same time, one filled with corpses who all had new passports […]

Russian Propaganda Machine ‘Russia Today’ is Essentially Their Version of Fox News

It’s no secret that I (and most liberals) consider Fox News nothing more than a propaganda machine for the Republican party.  It’s laughable that they’re even allowed to call themselves “news.”  It’s not just that they’re clearly biased, it’s that they blatantly push opinions as facts and ignore reality to perpetuate myths. Shows like The O’Reilly […]
