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.

Sanity in NC: ‘Choose Life’ license plates ruled unconstitutional

By: Tuesday December 11, 2012 10:56 am

Before we begin to celebrate, note that in 29 states, these state-sponsored “Choose Life” plates are actually available. But not in North Carolina — only after the ACLU sued to halt the launch of the plates in the state after it was approved in the 2010-2011 legislative session. The plate was permanently blocked because the state failed to offer a pro-choice alternative plate to drivers

By: Monday March 12, 2012 3:19 pm

My wife Kate hails from Birmingham, Alabama, it’s in one of the only blue counties in the entire state. I still get on her about the bible-beating ways down there — Alabama and Mississippi provide a lot of fertile material for political blogging.

Question of the day in Louisiana: Are undocumented immigrants ‘persons’?

By: Saturday November 19, 2011 3:17 pm

When I saw the headline over at Facing South, I had no idea that the nativist batsh*ttery has run off the rails into complete batsh*ttery.
