SC: Governor Haley names anti-gay, gun-promoting teabagger black Republican to U.S. Senate seat

By: Tuesday December 18, 2012 7:00 am

RT @msignorile: Another “bachelor” antigay Senator from SC. What’s going on there? I have no idea what’s going on “there,” but any Republican wound this tight from the Palmetto State probably would cause folks to ask the question, given Lindsey Graham’s presence in D.C. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is making some history — sadly [...]

Mitt’s election post-mortem conference call — another heat-seeking missile of 47% #FAIL into the GOP

By: Thursday November 15, 2012 9:33 am

And he sank that 1% battleship AGAIN. Gawd, the country dodged a disaster on election day. I’m not sure if Mitt Romney’s election post-mortem conference calls with donors were supposed to go like this, but his freestyling redux of his contempt for the 47% “moochers” and “takers” on the government teat was on grand display. [...]

The smell of FAIL is emanating from Camp Romney

By: Sunday November 4, 2012 6:26 am

While I don’t like to count the chickens before they hatch, the Romney campaign’s level of desperation and flopsweat is telling. Headline #1: Romney, Business Allies Finish With Strong Argument: Vote With Us, Or You’re Fired. Romney himself urged conservative business leaders this June to “make it very clear to your employees what you believe is [...]

The President goes on Leno and says: ‘Rape is rape. It is a crime.’

By: Thursday October 25, 2012 7:03 am

A simple statement. And it’s tragic that in a presidential race in 2012 any candidate has to state the obvious. But the right of a woman to make medical decisions of the most personal and private nature is on the table because of the insistent qualifications of rape by the GOP led by Mitt Romney.. [...]

Penis possessor Marco Rubio: ensuring gender pay equity is just a windfall for trial lawyers

By: Sunday October 21, 2012 11:49 am

Possessing the privilege in this country that comes with owning a penis, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)  tells women of America that ensuring pay equity is just a legal headache. (Think Progress): “I think that anyone who’s working out there and making a living, if you’re the most qualified person for the job, you should be [...]

The Sweepstakes Candidate: Mitt Romney’s Pay-To-Play Campaign

By: Saturday September 29, 2012 12:19 pm

The words Mitt Romney will be most remembered for: “Donate $3 today to be automatically entered for your chance to win“ A political campaign using a contest to raise money is nothing new, but the Romney-Ryan campaign has taken the method to excess by sending out at least 28 sweepstakes emails since I signed onto [...]

They can’t win on ideas, so for the GOP it’s about stealing, suppressing and screwing with the vote

By: Friday September 28, 2012 3:50 pm

When you have a presidential candidate that blows so badly that George W. Bush is outpolling him in favorability ratings and who writes off 47% of the country, you’re a party that needs to win not on ideas or cult of personality, but stealing and suppressing the vote. Take what’s going on in Florida, an [...]

Watch Joe Scarborough react to a hapless Romney rally vid + Romneybot 5.0 release imminent

By: Wednesday September 26, 2012 3:34 pm

I’ve watched this video at least five times and it’s so hilarious that I’m almost in tears every time. On NBC News’ Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough reacts to a clip of Mitt Romney trying to rally the crowd to stop chanting “Ryan, Ryan” to say “Romney/Ryan.” Scarborough covers his face, and says “Sweet Jesus.” And [...]

Ohio governor at Romney rally: our wives are at home doing laundry

By: Thursday September 13, 2012 1:34 am

Really, John Kasich? The Ohio governor, whose cred as a womb controller in the war in women doesn’t need additional burnishing, served up this gem at a Romney rally. “You know, Jane Portman, Karen Kasich, and Janna Ryan, they operate an awful lot of the time in the shadows,” he said in Owensville, referring to [...]

Eastwood’s epic rant cut from RNC video; NYT reports no one on Team Romney vetted the remarks

By: Sunday September 2, 2012 10:41 pm

You’d think that the RNC’s mystery guest would get included in its highlight reel for the convention, but Uncle Clint’s rambling batsh*t rant didn’t make the cut (ABC): A video mash-up of speakers from last week’s Republican National Convention does not include an appearance from the “mystery RNC speaker,” Clint Eastwood. The two-and-a-half minute video [...]
