After months of increasingly threatening-sounding emails to people who drunkenly signed up for his mailing list at CPAC, Rick Santorum is announcing today that he’s officially, really, for real, definitely going to waste a shitload of time and money going after a Republican Presidential nomination that he will fail to… »
Any political strategist will tell you the most important part of any presidential campaign is the lifestyle brand. A candidate isn’t truly running for the country’s highest elected office until their name is stitched, stuck, or printed all over their supporters’ bodies, homes, offices, and cars. With the launch of… »
While the 2016 GOP field has been characterized by its resemblance to a clown car on methamphetamines, the corresponding Democratic field has been disappointingly small, and, to date, as boring as a race between a political juggernaut and a self-identified socialist from Vermont can be. No longer. »
Since announcing her candidacy, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina has been on a bit of a media blitz, making breezy, cool-girl appearances on both the fourth hour of Today and Late Night with Seth Meyers. She’s also demonstrated, in mere days, that for a former tech CEO, Republican Presidential hopeful Carly… »
Mike Huckabee, an affable man with deplorable ideas, is also running for President. Huckabee is most recently noted for having an intense fixation on the moral hazards of Beyoncé, gays, and contraception. He also recently wrote a book that was called—and this isn’t me making fun of him, this is a real title of a book… »
Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina and famed neurosurgeon Ben Carson have both announced plans to waste unfathomable amounts of money on Presidential campaigns that are doomed to fail. Congratulations to both of them. »

Ted Cruz, manna from the sky for political hatewatchers, is a veritable fount of bombastic crazy, and has been since his college debate years. And we’re all better for it.
One day too late for Throwback Thursday, below you’ll find a photo of Marco Rubio dressed as a Chippendale’s Dancer for a high school talent show, with a full head of hair and one visible nipple. You’re welcome and I’m very, very sorry.
Recently, newly official presidential candidate Hillary Clinton visited an Ohio Chipotle. Because we’re all strapped into the vomit-smeared Tilt-a-Whirl that is an American election cycle, this was news. BIG NEWS. »
The photogenic gay couple from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign announcement video has invited the Democratic only-runner to their upcoming wedding. Too bad she’s probably going to be kind of busy for the next five hundred days. »
And so continues one of the most confusing relationships of my adult life: that between myself and Fox News’ Megyn Kelly. Once again Kelly brought out her “sensible adult” side during an interview with Rand Paul, taking him (as well as other male journalists) to task for sexism. »
