PRESS RELEASE: Republican Party Issues Apology For Future Racism Using Future Technology

JUNE 16, 2009 (Washington, D.C.) – Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele today issued the following statement concerning the GOP’s use of technologies, past, present and future: Recently, the Grand Old Party has found itself at the center of numerous controversies surrounding its usage of technology and social media.

Okay…

Republicans are angered beyond belief, friends, because they only have five weeks to read over all of Sotomayor’s opinions. Several Republicans said they were upset with Leahy for scheduling the hearing without much GOP input and indicated they may use delay tactics in committee and on the floor to give…

Psyched out Republicans

Atrios sez: It’s been sort of weird watching the Republicans flail about. Those of us who began our political lives in the 90s have, I think, been assuming that if there’s one thing the Republicans know how to do was be an opposition party. And now, despite a media willing…

There’s Things We Have Left To Fuck Up

Just because the GOP fucked everything up doesn’t mean you shouldn’t listen to them when they tell you how to fix it.

Reflections on a crazy week

Boy, this last week really drove home what it’s going to be like for the netroots now that Democrats are finally in charge. I, for one, am feeling really good about it. The mainstream media has shifted right back into the zone they were in when Clinton was President, which…

First Rule: Don’t Panic

I haven’t posted much on the bailout, because I needed time to digest what was happening and really think it over. (Which is going to be the theme of this post, if you read the title correctly.) I can’t help but smile to think of how things have gone down,…

Gay Is Apparently The New White Male Christian

So, apparently, Republicans are having their coming out party in Hollywood. When I look upon the faces of these oppressed, who you may recognize from such blockbusters as Transformers, X-Men: The Last Stand and Live Free or Die Hard, I can only think about how they, like gays and lesbians,…

If Republicans put 10% as much foresight into economic policy that they put into cultivating a culture warrior base or planning to invade sovereign nations when they get power, we probably wouldn’t be in the situation we’re in now.…
