The GOP Is Dead

I’ve said this with total seriousness at least 3 times in my life, but this time, I think it’s true. The GOP is dead. There’s no possible way for the Republican Party to recover from Donald Trump. It will eventually come up that Trump engaged in unethical and criminal behavior while GOP leaders knew about… Read more »

GOP to Blacks, Latinos and Poor – Don’t Vote

As the white majority in America not-so-quietly fades into the sunset of history, it’s not surprising that the party of over-privileged white people doesn’t want brown people to vote. Since the GOP got trounced in 2008 by record turnout of non-whites, something had to be done. Fortunately, conservatives did well in the state legislatures in… Read more »

Republicans political posturing over Fast and Furious “issue”

I’ll be honest, until a few days ago, I didn’t know anything about this so-called “Fast and Furious” government program. Here’s what I know now that Republicans are apparently trying to destroy the career of Attorney General Eric Holder over this gun-smuggling, or “gunwalking,” program run by the┬áBureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. In… Read more »

Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann (TP-R) has dropped her bid to be the next Republican Conference leader – the number 4 position in the House.

Dems Lose Big

Democrats took it on the chin last night. Republicans and Tea Party Republicans landed one body blow after another before delivering the knockout punch. Republicans took 60 House seats and at least 6 Senate positions away from the Democrats. That means that Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) will become the next Speaker of the United States… Read more »

Maddow: The Southern Strategy Is Not Dead

The Republican party’s “southern strategy” began after the parties flipped over civil rights legislation in the 1960s. The modern GOP wants you to think that the southern strategy is a throwback to decades past – they don’t do that any more. Oh but they do do that, it’s just now no longer limited to the… Read more »

Carl Paladino Goes Homophobic – Again

While speaking to a group of Orthodox Jews, Republican New York gubernatorial nominee Carl Paladino blasted his opponent Andrew Cuomo by unleashing a series of homophobic statements. In Williamsberg, he told the Jewish leaders, “I don’t want [children] brainwashed into thinking homosexuality is an equal valid and successful option.” The Tea Party backed Paladino didn’t… Read more »

Polls Show O’Donnell Down by 19 Points Against Coons

Christine O’Donnell won the Senatorial Republican nomination on September 14, 2010. She beat out Republican Mike Castle and Republicans were shocked while the Tea Partiers jumped for joy – they were going to “take America back.” But for the Republican Tea Partiers, that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. A new poll by the… Read more »

NV: Sharron Angle Says, ‘There’s nothing wrong with our health care’

In a rare TV interview with a reporter that doesn’t work for Fox News, Nevada Republican senatorial candidate Sharon Angle said, “There’s nothing wrong with our health care system.” We have the best doctors in the world, Angle explained in her condescending tone. That might be true, maybe, but more than 50 million Americans don’t… Read more »

Only 29 percent of the 78,000 Republicans polled said they were “Moderate/Liberal.” Seventy-one percent labeled themselves “Conservative” or “Very conservative.” The vast majority of self-identified conservatives are white, 55 or older and go to church regularly.

Next Senate Could be Loaded With Conservative Ideologues

If the polls are right – you have every reason to believe that they aren’t – but if they’re right, as many as 12 never-before-seen ultra-conservative Republicans will be in the Senate next year. Ron Brownstein wrote today that if it happens, this will be the biggest class of extremely conservative freshmen Senators we’ve seen… Read more »

Christine O’Donnell Says Evolution is a Myth

In 1998, Delaware’s current Republican senatorial nominee, Christine O’Donnell was on Bill Maher’s Politically Incorrect when she said that evolution is a myth. A bewildered O’Donnell said that if it were real, “why aren’t monkeys still evolving into human beings?” O’Donnell is so sure that evolution is a myth, yet, she doesn’t even have a… Read more »

Phil Davison: ‘I Have a Master’s Degree in Communication’

Phil Davison of Minerva, Ohio might have a master’s degree in communication, but he sucks at communicating. This speech he gave last night at the Stark County Republican Party’s executive committee seeking the party’s nomination for treasurer is the worst speech I’ve ever seen in my life. He didn’t get the nomination.
