A Corporate Agenda Motivates The GOP’s Opposition to Net Neutrality

The FCC Chairman, Julius Genachowski has released a draft proposal on net neutrality that addresses concerns about the way large Internet providers manage their networks. As usual, a Republican spokesperson has come out against the proposal claiming that the FCC decision is insulting and nothing more than a government takeover, but this is just an excuse to hide their true agenda of Internet corporatization.

Republicans Support Strip Clubs on Ground Zero Sacred Ground

Republicans Don't Mind Ground Zero Strip Clubs

While the constitution forbids prohibiting a mosque from being built blocks away from ground zero ("Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."), Republicans are salivating at the prospect of ignoring the constitution (again) and using this for political hay. Apparently, the Family Values Party is not concerned with the strip clubs (like New York Dolls) that surround hallowed ground (after all, we all know that Hooters is a family restaurant and Fox News is not conservative day time porn), because nothing says Christian Values and Apple Pie like a strip club.

How the Ground Zero Mosque Could Cost the GOP the 2010 Election

Like bugs to light, Republicans are attracted to 9/11 fear mongering, and with the flap over the proposed mosque and community center two blocks from Ground Zero, the man in charge of the GOP's efforts to retake the Senate, Sen. John Cornyn suggested that the GOP is ready to make 9/11 an issue again this November, but by playing the politics of fear, the GOP could ensure failure in November.

Fox News Hangs Sharron Angle Out To Dry

Even Fox News isn't Safe for Sharron Angle

Fox News Network, the champion if not creator of the Tea Party, hung Tea Party “rape can be made into lemonade” nut job Sharron Angle (R-NV) out to dry earlier this week. Perhaps Fox is miffed over losing their favorite, the chicken lady, to run against that evil of humanity, Harry Reid and so felt compelled to use poor Sharron Angle to demonstrate their “balance” by annihilating her on Cavuto’s “Your World”

GOP Uses Mama Grizzlies to Attack Women’s Rights

Conservative Assault on Women's Rights

This week’s winners of the Patriarchy Award: Sharron Angle and David Vitter. Sharron Angle announced that she’s against abortion even when a girl is raped by her own father, and indeed, the Mama Grizzly Conservative suggests that said rape victims make “lemonade out of lemons”. But hold on to your outrage, my friends, because the compassionate conservatives also bring us David Vitter, who appointed a man who was found GUILTY of stabbing his girlfriend to be in charge of women’s issues.

An exclusive interview with Alicia Lewis, who found herself the unwitting victim of the Sarah Palin attack machine during the Palin Stanislaus speech shakedown. In the course of following a lead about documents which were being disposed of suspiciously, Ms. Lewis stumbled into the middle of another Palin drama and found herself being labeled a dumpster diver and "political operative" by Sarah Palin during Palin's national speech last weekend.

White Republican Overseers Order Obama to Do His Job

Republicans who are loath to do their own jobs are thankfully not reticent to run around pointing fingers at Obama and demand, “Mr. President! Do your job!” This is said in what I can assure you is not a racist tone, because the only racism we need to worry about is reverse racism, as you would know if you were a rich white man who has suffered mightily trying to get someone to stop you and ask for your birth certificate.

All American Coca-Cola Shuns a Toxic Glenn Beck

Ah, the sweet fizz of justice on a Friday morning. Yes, Coca-Cola, that all-American – dare I say REAL American?! – beverage company has decided that it is not right for their image to advertise on Glenn Beck. This is most upsetting for those who have been sneering at sane people everywhere that Glenn Beck is an entertainer for god’s sake, you over sensitive Lefty!

Sarah Palin and Nikki Haley’s Right Wing Persecution Complex

Sarah Palin Smugging Up Her Endorsement of Tea Party fav Haley

Sarah Palin took to her Facebook page to defend yet another persecuted Christian (aka, Tea Party favorite) in South Carolina, Nikki Haley. Haley is the front-runner in the Republican primary for Governor of South Carolina and she has been accused of having an affair with a staffer by said staffer who recently announced the affair on his blog. In reality, this isn't persecution, this is politics.

The Left Carrying Water for the GOP: Why isn’t Obama Fixing the Oil Spill?!?

Oil Spill Tragedy

Everywhere I go, Liberals are griping about the President, carrying water for the GOP again. Liberals want Obama to “FIX” the BP spill. He should have “taken over”, he should have “done more”. Beware the lazy intellectualism of the pseudo elite liberal, because it's much more cool to reproach scornfully from above than it is to tell the nerdy truth. The nerdy truth is that the law prevents the government from just taking over. The nerdy truth is this sucks and there is no way to fix it now.

The Palinization of Rand Paul

Palinization of Rand Paul

After a humiliating stint on the Rachel Maddow show wherein Kentucky Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul demonstrated a special talent in the art of the duck and dodge, Paul continued to Palinize himself the next day -- wrapping himself in indignation, in order to mask his own deep inadequacy and lack of preparation for the important office he seeks.

Arizona Strikes Out with Threat to Cut Off Power to Los Angeles

Arizona swung wildly at Los Angeles after the City of Angels signed a resolution to boycott Arizona over the Papers Please law. Wounded by the perceived threat to their dwindling tourism business (due to similar boycotts around the country), Arizona punched back yesterday with a threat befitting an impotent schoolyard bully. Because, you know, instead of taking another look at the law, the thing to do is escalate the authoritarian power grab at the very root of the trouble.
