Congratulations to Paula Deen on Her New Book Deal with Hachette!

Paula Deen, diabetic butter enthusiast and famed deployer of racial slurs (as she said in her deposition: "I can't, myself, determine what offends another person"), has just signed a multi-book deal with Hachette, the publisher relatively fresh off their frazzled, victorious campaign against Amazon to set their own… » 3/02/15 2:30pm 3/02/15 2:30pm

Clarence Thomas Is the Absolute Worst. Here's Why.

Everyone knows Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the best Supreme Court justice, but which one is King Shit of Poop Mountain? The competition is pretty fierce. We all know Justice Alito is a dick (don’t nobody step to RBG on my watch, dog). Scalia is an immortal, squealing pig-demon who feels naught but agony. Chief Justice… » 6/25/13 4:45pm 6/25/13 4:45pm

Ever since we pointed out that some teenagers reacted very poorly to President Obama's reelection by posting racist hate speech on Twitter, we have received quite a few emails supporting the students and expressing anti-Obama sentiments.
