It seems that if you were going to decide the worst imaginable platform for a candidate to run on, it would have to involve healthcare he couldn’t use and jobs he couldn’t do.

Nice Guys® still not vindicated

By Amanda Marcotte

As you read this, I’m in transit to Hollywood to film an interview for a documentary about the chastity movement. To no one’s big surprise, I’m against it, but that’s neither here nor there. The point is blogging may be spotty until Thursday morning, when I’ve safely returned from Gomorrah-on-the-Pacific. (Sodom is San Francisco.) In the meantime, I figured you all would be as disappointed as I am to see more choad-based “science” with this…


Take The Alf Pen! The Alf Pen!

By Jesse Taylor

The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of McCain’s $300 million electric engine prize is that if we’re willing to sock that much money away for it already, why not just spend the $300 million as startup costs for actually doing it rather than hold it in reserve…

Amy Sullivan writes one of her two articles again. This is the abortion one.…


CA: father kills child to ‘get the demons out’

By pams

I just want to believe this man was high or mentally ill because the abuse this two-year-old baby was subjected to is beyond belief. Sergio Casian Aguiar, a 27-year-old grocery store worker in Stanislaus County who had never been in trouble with the law before, not only kicked his child…


The Cohen…It Does Nothing!

Dobbsy Loves Barry Obama

By Jesse Taylor

Yet more hilarity from the fundie crowd: Some have been taking issue with largely unnoticed comments made last year by Sen. Barack Obama declaring the U.S. is “no longer a Christian nation” but is also a nation of others, including Muslims and nonbelievers. Whaaaaa? “Whatever we once were, we’re no…



By Jesse Taylor

Oh, the beauty of unintentional truths: “Even if we did have only Christians in our midst, if we expelled every non-Christian from the United States of America, whose Christianity would we teach in the schools?” Obama said. “Would we go with James Dobson’s or Al Sharpton’s?” referring to the civil…


Care Bears Go To The Polls

By Jesse Taylor

I would have an easier time having faith in our media if it had even the most remote connection to reality.…


Fundie pastors thumb nose at tax-exemption laws to endorse from the pulpit

By pams

Here we go. These bible-beaters are planning to test the boundaries of their tax-exempt status. They feel they are entitled to make political endorsements directly to the sheeple in the pews — this is understandable because these “Christian” leaders are seeing power slipping from their grasp and they believe the…
