My New Favorite Kid of All Time.

Thumbs up everybody, for rock and roll!

Obama's Situation Room Superheroed Up!

Go Captain America!

This? Oh, It's Just the First Lady of the United States Doing "The Dougie."


Michelle Obama has redeemed that weirdo from that post earlier today.

America, You Make Me Uncomfortable.


Celebrating the death of Osama Bin Laden by riding around in your yard on a four-wheeler with an American flag on the back while shooting a gun in random directions?

That's just an awkward thing to see. So of course I figured I'd share it.

Democracy Dissolved in Michigan and Trump Doesn't Care About Black People.


Legitimately elected democratic government dissolved and replaced with an autocracy...in Michigan.

Even though Donald Trump has "a great relationship with the blacks," Jonathan Capehart details precisely what about this whole thing makes him a racist scumbag.

When CBS news man Bob Schieffer takes a position, it's pretty clear that this whole thing is racist.

Some doubt is cast on his claim that he's "always had a great relationship with the blacks," as Salon points out that his company was sued for refusing to rent to non-whites back in the 70s.

Excited for the first Republican primary debate next week?!

Democrats are getting down in the mud and forming their own organizations that don't disclose their donors: "While we agree that fundamental campaign finance reforms are needed, Karl Rove and the Koch brothers cannot live by one set of rules as our values and our candidates are overrun with their hundreds of millions of dollars."

Dana Milbank thinks the gross excesses of the Washington Correspondents' Association Dinner are "icky" and are things that should be ashamed of.

President Can Crush Baby Testicles, But Can't See Corporate Lobbying Efforts


I haven’t read the proposed executive order that John Yoo seems so upset about and I have nothing resembling an informed opinion on the subject.  However, I do find it incredibly strange that the fellow who argued that the President might have the authority to crush the testicles of a child thinks it’s an overreach of executive authority to require companies seeking federal government contracts to disclose their political contributions.

Today's Excitement: Organic Compost and Feticide


Want a U.S. passport?  Tell me about your penis.

State senator wants foster kids to shop only at thrift stores. (He's since given up)

Republican governor wants to liberate us from the tyranny of child labor laws.

Because "abortion" sounds too family friendly, they call it "feticide" in Louisiana.  (Brought to you from the same fellow who thought it might be a good idea to offer poor women $1,000 if they got their tubes tied.) 

In contrast, over in the blue state of Vermont, a single-payer health care system quietly passed the Senate.

Republicans in the Florida state legislature are doing their best to keep Democrats from voting.

Your organic compost might be human sewage.

Barack Obama is a moderate Republican from the 1990s.

Or maybe he's not.

A Progressive budget that is going almost entirely ignored.

It's only polite to scream at Congressional town hall meetings if you're yelling at a Democrat.  

And finally, I love this video.

James O'Keefe Makes a Music Video. Honestly.


The weirdo who doctored tapes that resulted in the destruction of ACORN and recently caused NPR a bit of trouble has released a music video responding to all his critics. It. Is. Incredible.

Be sure to watch the epic conclusion of this video to see James O'Keefe awkwardly channel Michael Jackson.

Latest Dem Ad Shows a Little Courage!

Could the Dems actually be UNITING around a message for the upcoming election? All it took was the proposed obliteration of one of the crowning achievements in Democratic Party history.



And Politico reports that some robocalls are going out just in time to welcome Republicans back home for their recess:

“Did you know Congressman Chip Cravaack voted to end Medicare forcing seniors to pay $12,500 for private health insurance, without guaranteed coverage? Tell Cravaack to keep his hands off our Medicare.”

I see some fight in the Dems!

What a Delicious Looking Cake!

Watching them actually cut into this beautiful masterpiece caused me to cringe.

Silence on the Floor of the House, Please!

Representative Crowley of New York today provided some nice contrast to the shouting and silliness that so frequently happens on the floor of the House of Representatives this morning:

Oh, Star Wars. You Made Me Laugh.



Thank goodness this young girl wasn't in Luke's place, or the Rebel Alliance would meet certain doom!
