Talibangelist Bill Keller: Obama is no Christian

By pams

Ah, campaign season brings all the freakshow fundies out of the woodwork. Today’s self-important member of the religious fringe is the “Dr. Phil of prayer,” St. Petersburg, Florida-based Bill Keller of Liveprayer.com. He bleats to the Wildmon “news” organ OneNewsNow that Obama is a faux Christian Trojan Horse. “A lot of the things that he is saying really call into question whether he really is a Christian,” says Keller, offering up as an example Obama’s…

The federal government is attempting to revive a law written to protect children from online pornography. The problem is, the law was written in 1998.

Shirley Preiss cannot register in Arizona for the November elections without proof of…


There Is No Joy In Mudville

By Jesse Taylor

I find it rather easy to take glee when people who think they’re being smart get caught doing dumb things. It’s much harder to take glee when people who were doing dumb shit get caught, because it’s just so obvious – like watching a baby carriage headed for a pit…


The definitive evidence arrived this morning from Uranus

By Amanda Marcotte

It’s amazing how much complexity there is stemming from what essentially boils down to: They made it all up.…


Also, has anyone noticed all the sex & violence on the teevee?

Holy shit: Meanwhile, conservative talk radio, which I have been following with interest for almost 20 years, has become a tornado alley of hallucinatory holograms of Obama…It’s gotten to the point that I can hardly listen to my favorite shows, which were once both informative and entertaining. The hackneyed repetition…
