Republicans wrong, Obama right ... as usual.


Not long ago, Republicans were slobbering all over themselves about what a strong leader Putin is and what a wimp Obama is. They said that if Obama had somehow just been tougher, then Putin magically wouldn't have invaded Ukraine. They said Obama's economic sanctions were worthless. Some even criticized Obama for not invading Russia.

Like so many Republican claims, this one has also been proven false. Obama has once again been proven right.

Can people please, once and for all time, give up comparing marriage equality to bestiality?


Can people please, once and for all time, give up comparing marriage equality to bestiality? A sane person does not compare a loving and committed relationship between two consenting adults with sexual acts between a person and an animal. Rick Santorum, Rand Paul, and Bill O'Reilly, people who should know better, have compared marriage equality to bestiality--and it's sick and disgusting. If they really believe the comparison is apt, then they're the actual perverts. If they're just trying to make an outlandish comparison to stir up mindless hatred of gay people, then they're complete jerks. Either way, pervert or jerk, they should grow up and shut up.

Michelle Bachmann is "The Christmas Bomber"


So, you're leaving Congress after years of stirring the crazy pot. At the White House Christmas party, you have one last chance to talk to President Obama, a man you've lied about and insulted many times. Do you apologize for being such a jerk? Do you just say "Merry Christmas" and move along? Do you look at the floor and shuffle your feet because there's nothing that you can say to make up for the way you've wasted your time in public service acting like a creepy lunatic?

Nope. Michelle Bachmann told the president to bomb Iran. Merry Christmas--let's kill some brown people who don't believe in God the same way we do.

Crazy in--crazy out. At least she's consistent.
