“Why, that Obama won’t let us make fun of him at all! He’s such an uptight, controlled, anal, humorless sacred cow…”

“Oh my God, I think I’m on to something! And I finally get to use the word ‘aeolist’!”

JibJab Is Back

I look forward to weeks of forced laughter from reporters pretending this is hilarious.


Chuck Norris is aware of all Constitutional traditions

By auguste

Never mind the futility of explaining proportional representation (or, for that matter, the existence of the Senate) to Chuck Norris; this insanity gives me the chance to root for a an idea that I certainly didn’t invent but have been in favor of for quite some time now: Increasing the…


This is what happens when anti-choicers are in positions of authority

By auguste

They do what they say they will. In a spectacular act of complicity with the religious right, the Department of Health and Human Services Monday released a proposal that allows any federal grant recipient to obstruct a woman’s access to contraception.

No shame: Republican’s FL billboard features burning Twin Towers

By pams

From St. Cloud, Florida — isn’t this the kind of shameless, tasteless shilling you expect from Republicans as their fortunes are in the dumpster? After milking the tragedy of 9/11 for years now, here it comes again when the party has zero to run on. (Raw Story): Businessman Mike Meehan,…


NR to join the satirical-cover game?

By auguste
