Why is this guy obsessed with sodomy?

That’s the question The Young Turks asked at the GOP convention, after awaiting for a batsh*t fundie to show up, and their wish was granted — when apparent Hartline-wannabe Ryan Sorba showed up. His lot in life is to “expose the dark secrets of the homosexual political community.” (Read past…

Mixed Metaphors Make The Head Hurt

The fundamental problem with conservative culture war manifestos is that they’re directed at any of several stereotypes, many of which openly contradict each other. You’ve got your New England snob, your West Coast hippie, your inner-city minority, your college kid, your college professor, your demented atheist, your welfare recipient –…

All Conservatives Are Racist Pedophiles

Look, no, there’s no possible way to interpret the title of this post as saying that each and every conservative is a bigoted child-lover. There’s just not. The standard for Republicans opening their mouths has generally been that they don’t mean the words that come out, but in fact some…

Day 5 Of The Republican Convention

After a convention wholeheartedly dedicated (by which I mean they gave out signs which none of the dozens in attendance read) to the idea of service to something greater than one’s self, the end result is a clear message to America’s struggling communities: organizing to improve your lot in life…

Paaaaaailin Away

Her backdrop is the endless void of the soul. This is a good start. Why do they keep using McCain’s middle initial? Did you know that McCain was in the military and supported the war in Iraq? Because I was confused. I thought he was a community organizer. Unlike Barack…

Chocolate Starfish And The Giuliani Water

Why did NOBODY on the fucking design crew not think that the lowest tenth of a moving image would be a bad background for TV? Giuliani looks like he’s giving a speech from a sewer. Guess what? John McCain is a hero. And his biography is compelling. And entirely unknown.…

McCain Is McCain Is McCain

The major theme I got last night from watching the GOP convention is that John McCain has fought a lot with Republicans during his career, and should therefore be elected President. The other major theme I got was that Barack Obama has fought a lot with Republicans during his career,…

Pigs are flying – pundits on Obama’s speech

[NOTE: Last night I liveblogged the evening's events from the interesting accommodations for press-credentialed bloggers at Invesco field. See video, photos and and my thoughts: "Finally at Invesco, feeling like a sardine (but happy to be here to witness history)"] The bacon gained speed trotting down the runway and improbably…

Election Over

Based on this Dick Morris column, Barack Obama will win the votes of every woman in America. I’m consistently amazed at the ways our punditariat has of explaining why every good thing for the Democrats is actually bad. Hillary giving a good speech is bad for Biden and Obama. Biden…

Funkdaddy Supreme’s House O’ Speech

Barack Obama is apparently going to have his acceptance speech in front of a mockup of the Parthenon or something, an act of hubris unrivaled in modern times. Of course, there is no backdrop that Obama could have for his speech that wouldn’t play into Republican attacks on his “celebrity”…
