By: Tuesday December 4, 2012 1:14 pm

Even having a Senate colleague, former Senator Bob Dole, war veteran, rolled into the chamber in a wheelchair, did nothing to stop this shameful vote against the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities treaty. (MaddowBlog): The Senate killed the treaty this afternoon, with a final vote of 61 to 38, which seems like a lopsided [...]

Start packing, libs, homos, atheists – Santorum-backing pastor says it’s a Christian nation, so get out

By: Tuesday March 20, 2012 11:26 am

It really is tiresome to hear gasbags like Greenwell Springs Baptist Church pastor Dennis Terry show just how ignorant they are about this country’s constitution. In their eyes, it’s a theocracy – a Christian one of only a specific flavor – his. The embarrassing “love it or leave it” trash was uttered when Terry  – the [...]

Mittens flushes millions down the crapper for losses in MS and AL

By: Tuesday March 13, 2012 11:20 pm

We know that Mitt Romney, since he’s a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints, wasn’t high when he said on camera that he was going to win Alabama’s primary. And he surely wasn’t on mind-altering substances when he brashly insisted that Rick Santorum was ”at the desperate end of his campaign,” suggesting that the [...]

Santorum: leading the transformation of the GOP into the crazy train of fundamentalism

By: Wednesday February 22, 2012 10:42 am

When you blog about the professional anti-LGBT movement, you get used to reading completely batsh*t, sex-obsessed things from Peter LaBarbera, or junk science from hate group leader Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council. But in 2012, GOP Clown Car candidate Rick Santorum has ushered in an impressive and visible new era of religious right/junk [...]

Please tell me that I didn’t just step out of  a time machine. I guess I probably didn’t travel too far back in time, given we’re talking about Republicans in the 2012 GOP Clown Car cycle, because this is what Rick Santorum said just yesterday in an interview with CNN’s John King about the Pentagon considering [...]

In the ‘what were they thinking’ dept: Rick Santorum launches C.U.M.

By: Sunday January 22, 2012 2:43 pm

This comes from the land of “you can’t make this sh*t up.” GOP Clown Car occupant, ace homophobe and bearer of a redefined surname that has become a giant political problem for him on Google, Rick Santorum is not doing himself any more favors by launching the Conservatives United Moneybomb, or C.U.M. for shorthand.
