Conservatives Silenced by Irony: Fox May Produce Hillary TV Movie

The GOP faithful, ever ready to storm the moral high ground and erect a glittering, priapistic citadel, jumped all over NBC’s yet-to-be-scripted Hillary Clinton teleplay like a gaggle of magpies who’ve caught a glimpse of a shiny Cracker Jack ring. “Aha, liberal scum!” cried RNC Reince Priebus, wearing his ceremonial… » 8/11/13 3:00pm 8/11/13 3:00pm

Maybe It’s Time for Kirsten Gillibrand to Leapfrog Hillary Clinton

As we, the sycophantic public, dangle precariously between presidential election cycles, only one question keeps us attuned to the distant rumblings of potential candidates as they posture, pivot, and promenade their way to a spot in the presidential primary spotlight of 2016: could Kirsten Gillibrand leapfrog Hillary… » 4/29/13 1:05pm 4/29/13 1:05pm

Christine Quinn Might Soon Become New York’s First Openly Gay, Lady…

Christine Quinn, New York's recently married City Council Speaker, has announced this morning that she's running for mayor.

Being a Myopic Dick About the Election Cost Sean Hannity Half His…

Oh, Sean "Don't Worry, Frightened Elderlies, We'd Never Reelect a Colored!" Hannity. It pleases me to laugh at you! All the bizarre, insulated right-wing media rhetoric—which straight-facedly predicted a landslide win for Romney—is coming back to bite them where it hurts a conservative the most. In the dick money. » 1/01/13 1:00pm 1/01/13 1:00pm

Bill O'Reilly Is Not Thrilled That Single Women Might Decide Election

Single women are the fastest-growing voting population in the country: 55 million unmarried women will be voting in the upcoming election, and it goes without saying that they're not being courted by Romney/Ryan. When Ann Romney went off-script at the RNC to yell "I love you, women!" she later clarified that she was… » 11/03/12 6:01pm 11/03/12 6:01pm

If Kids Could Vote, Barack Obama Would Be Double Mega-President

Well, the world might be in the shitter, but at least the future is bright! (Kind of. Except for all the parts that we're systematically covering in shit. But, you know.) In Nickelodeon's annual Kids Pick the President poll, our nation's wise young fake-voters fake-reelected Barack Obama by a landslide, and said… » 10/23/12 6:30pm 10/23/12 6:30pm

Ruh Roh, Romney: Salt Lake Tribune Endorses Obama

The Salt Lake Tribune, the paper of record in the eye of the Mormon storm, has endorsed President Barack Obama. They endorsed Obama in 2008, too, but many expected Romney's Mormon faith (and the fact that he pulled hard for the 2002 Olympics in SLC) to outshine common sense and the fact that he's a lying liar who… » 10/21/12 8:30pm 10/21/12 8:30pm

Paul Ryan Promises to Undo Contraception Mandate, Be Awesome at Space…

As part of his ongoing effort to make sure that as few women vote for Mitt Romney as possible, Paul Ryan told the fine people of Orlando who'd spoiled their Saturdays by listening to Paul Ryan brag about how many times he'd ridden Tower of Terror that he would remove the Affordable Care Act's "contraception mandate",… » 9/23/12 12:00pm 9/23/12 12:00pm

Susan Sarandon’s Favorite Movie Is Mitt Romney’s Campaign

As a baseball expert, outlaw, and nun, Susan Sarandon knows a little bit about all the important things that exist in the world, which is why it's always nice to hear from her, even if it's just so she can remind us that Mitt Romney's politico shtick of slipping on banana peels while Paul Ryan punctuates each fall… » 9/19/12 2:50pm 9/19/12 2:50pm

John Kasich Praises the Heroic Laundering of Political Spouses…

By this point, it should be pretty obvious that Mitt Romney has the most hapless and mendacious surrogates EVER, but, in case you need a little more convincing, Ohio Gov. John Kasich was on hand Wednesday to provide some more evidence that the entire GOP is now officially a horseshoe crab that somehow got stuck on its… » 9/13/12 9:15pm 9/13/12 9:15pm

Express Your Outrage About the Gender Pay Gap with These Pithy E-Cards

Despite what some faithless Bloomberg opinion writers believe, the gender pay gap is too a real thing and it really needs to disappear. Like several decades ago.
