The Republican Excuse For Saying Horrible Things? “It’s Just Satire”

Do you struggle with Satiring™? Do you find yourself having to say “It’s a joke” time and time again, because people don’t understand your humor? Have you been punched in the face, or called a word banned by Google Adsense, simply for using a racial epithet, or sharing your beliefs about the LGBT community’s sinister […]

The Reason The South Has Rejected Democrats? Their Message Sucks

Earlier this week I penned an article titled “No, Democrats Should Not Abandon The South,” and the response to it was disheartening to say the very least. Sadly, I expected the replies that came, even though I hoped that Democrats and fellow progressives would prove me wrong. One after another, people who very likely didn’t […]

Jon Stewart Slams Republican Stupidity in Texas, Asks ‘What Would Jesus Shoot?’ (Video)

Being a liberal in Texas isn’t easy. I’m constantly surrounded by people who literally seem to make up reality as they go along. Many of these people see facts as opinions and believe the Bible is more credible than science books. Needless to say, I get frustrated from time to time. Well, on last night’s episode […]

Greg Abbott Refused to Answer Whether or Not He Would Have Supported Ending Bans on Interracial Marriage

There are many questions we can be asked that don’t have a simple “yes” or “no” answer to them. But then there are those questions that shouldn’t be difficult to answer, such as whether or not interracial marriage should be legal. The answer, unless you’re a racist or a bigot, should clearly be “yes.” Well, not […]

Breaking: Federal Judge Halts Key Part of Texas’ New Controversial Anti-Choice Law

Last summer, Texas State Senator Wendy Davis (D) became a national sensation when she bravely fought for women’s rights in Texas during a nearly 13-hour filibuster to block a controversial law that would have restricted women’s rights within the state. Though her efforts were brave, and temporarily successful, they ultimately fell short of blocking the […]

Coward Greg Abbott Has Plenty of Time to Campaign with Ted Nugent, Hardly Any Time to Debate Wendy Davis

I’ve always maintained that any politician who does whatever they can to avoid debates should never receive a single vote from anyone.  If you’re too much of a coward to debate issues publicly, you’re either unfit to hold the office for which you’re running or you’re hiding something. Kind of like what the RNC is […]

Greg Abbott Desperately Tries to Slander Wendy Davis by Linking Her With Socialists, Fails Miserably

The word “socialism” is one that strikes fear into the hearts of almost every conservative who hears it.  Which is funny because most conservatives I’ve encountered in my experiences with politics can’t even define the word, but that’s a topic for another discussion. So it shouldn’t come as any surprise that Republican candidate for governor […]

Wendy Davis Finds Unlikely Republican Ally on Key Legislation

I’ve said many times before that the Republican party is essentially an entire political ideology built on talking points.  It doesn’t matter if what they’re saying or doing doesn’t make any sense, it just needs to sound right. When it comes to “equal pay for women” legislation, basically what it boils down to is Republicans […]

10 Questions Every Conservative Needs to Answer About Their Support for Ted Nugent

Every month I write a (usually) fun article titled 10 Questions Every Liberal Should Ask Every Republican.  Basically it’s just a monthly feature where I present ten questions I think liberals should present to Republicans and have them answer. So far there’s been three editions you can locate here, here and here. But in the midst […]
