Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow Election Day Special, Jesus Stands at the Door with a Glock

Knock-knock! Good Lord, what is it now? I do not keep office hours on Sunday mornings—especially the Sunday morning before an Election Day! I’ve got a gaggle of judicial candidates, each begging me to read the morning announcements. Parents are complaining that the new elephant slide in the Noah’s Ark nursery sends the wrong message […]

Megyn Kelly’s Absurd Voter Fraud Lie on Fox News Gets Debunked by Rachel Maddow and Colorado News Anchor

The fact that we’re even having this debate about voter fraud is absurd. The legitimate and documented cases of voter fraud are so rare that the odds of witnessing it lie somewhere between winning the lottery twice and seeing a unicorn. But despite the overwhelming evidence disproving the myth of voter fraud, Republicans all over the […]

The Real Way Republicans Plan to Rig Elections and Disenfranchise Voters

The last several years these new voter ID laws have often made headlines.  Most notably because they tend to target voters that tend to vote for Democrats.  And since the Supreme Court overturned parts of the Voting Rights Act, Republican controlled states have wasted no time passing new laws that seek to rig elections to […]

With One Ridiculous Comment, Mike Huckabee Manages to Unite the Left and the Right Against Him

It’s not often that liberals and conservatives can get on the same page when it comes to much of anything nowadays. Even things that shouldn’t be controversial like science and history can cause heated disagreements among the left and the right.  So when a conservative ex-politician and Fox News commentator manages to anger both the […]

When Conservative Logic Supports a Progressive Cause: Guns & Voter ID

Whenever I try to debate gun policy with conservatives, I always hear the same arguments. The most common one is that new gun laws, such as universal background checks, only affect law-abiding gun owners. Well, it’s time to use a little conservative logic for a liberal cause. It’s time to look at this exact argument in […]

Iowa Republican Finds “Shocking” Number of Cases of Voter Fraud During 18-Month Investigation

The assertion by many Republicans that “rampant voter fraud” makes stricter voter ID laws necessary is probably in my top five most ridiculous things Republicans claim. Not only is voter fraud not an issue — in any way — but their furious attempts to find it have produced laughable results. Yet none of this has […]

Restricting Voting Access — Guess Where the GOP Is Doing It Now?

Remember how just a couple months back, in what could be considered a Republican attempt at sabotaging the race for governor, nearly 40,000 people were purged from Virginia’s voter rolls? Well, the Republican Party is at it once again, and this time it’s Wisconsin. Yes, Wisconsin – the home of two of the most reviled […]

Florida’s Fraudulent Voting Witch Hunt Produces a “Shocking” Number of Cases — All Republican

The issue of voter fraud and new restrictive voter ID laws has taken this country by storm the last couple of years.  Republican legislatures all across the country have taken “a stand against voter fraud” and passed highly restrictive new laws which they claim will reduce the possibility of fraudulent voting. It just so happens that Florida, […]

Republicans Don’t Have to Worry About Winning Over Voters, They’re Just Going to Rig Elections

Gerrymandering, new restrictive voter ID laws, mythical voter fraud fear mongering—I’m sick to death of all of it.  The outrage over this Republican attempt to rig elections that’s going on all across this country isn’t nearly loud enough.  This should be the headline every single night on every single news channel, website and blog. Republicans aren’t […]

Colin Powell Calls Out Republicans, Tells Them What They Really Don’t Want to Hear

Since the Supreme Court struck down parts of the Voting Rights Act, Republican legislatures across the country have nearly fallen over themselves trying to pass new, much more restrictive, voting laws which clearly seek to suppress the vote of those who often don’t vote for Republicans. Which makes sense.  We’ve literally not had one single […]
