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

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

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

Bachmann Drops Bid for Leadership Role in the Next House

Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann (TP-R) has dropped her bid to be the next Republican Conference leader – the number 4 position in the House. Bachmann said that the GOP’s preferred candidate had “demonstrated his commitment to limited government, reduced spending and lower taxes, and he will be a strong voice for the Tea Party’s call

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

Cops Called to Arrest Democratic Voter at Eric Cantor Meet-and-Greet

In Kentucky, campaign workers do the beat-downs, but in Virginia, the police do it. Virginia’s Congressman Eric Cantor represents the 7th district. He running against Democrat Rick Waugh. Cantor refuses to debate his opponent, but he publicized on his Web site a meet-and-great to allows voters the opportunity to ask him questions. Well, Democrat John

Rand Paul Campaign Worker Who Beat up a Woman Asks for an Apology

It’s cliche when an abuser asks the victim for an apology, but that’s what has happened in the ongoing story of a Rand Paul campaign worker who beat up a woman a couple days ago. In a local news story by WKYT in Kentucky, Tim Profitt, the man who admittedly stomped on a liberal woman

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

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

Health Care Blamed for US Slump on Global Longevity Scale

The Democrats chose to “compromise” on health care and to govern like a bunch of pansies, and now they’re crapping their pants with the November elections looming. If they’d done what people elected them to do, which was end the wars and pass universal health care reform, they’d be in a lot stronger position. But

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

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

Modern Tea Party Republican: White Middle-aged Angry and Religious

Gallop released some updated poll numbers on the Republican party. 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. Only 34 percent of moderate Republicans were 55 or

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

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

Many Americans Think Health Care Reform Didn’t Go far Enough

Republicans have been campaigning on a platform of “repeal and replace” of President Obama’s signature health care reform legislation. According to an AP poll released today, by a 2 to 1 margin, voters said that not only should the law not be repealed, but that it didn’t go far enough. “I was disappointed that it

Christine O’Donnell Claimed Scientists are Creating Mice With Human Brains

On November 16, 2007, Delaware’s GOP Senatorial Nominee Christine O’Donnell was on Bill O’Reilly’s The O’Reilly Factor, when she said that scientists are right now cloning humans with animals to create mice with fully-functioning human brains. The show was about cloning monkeys and O’Donnell is totally against cloning human beings – totally against it, particularly

In 1997, Christine O’Donnell Said Government Spends too Much Money on AIDS

Christine O’Donnell is the gift that keeps on giving. A new video has been unearthed from the C-SPAN archives of O’Donnell saying that the government spends too much money on AIDS and they need to knock it off. O’Donnell, now 41, won the GOP nomination to become the next US Senator from Delaware. She’s also

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.

GOP Hatchetman Says Media Matters Researchers Should be ‘Curbstomped’

Rick Wilson is a GOP attack dog. He’s the guy that produced the ad linking then-Senator Max Cleland (D-GA) to Osama bin Laden in 2002. Unlike Wilson, Cleland is a decorated Vietnam war veteran who was awarded a Silver Star and a Bronze Star for valorous action in combat, but that didn’t stop Wilson from
