Captain America Is Black And Thor Is A Woman: Marvel Shakeup

Archie Comics is not the only place where culture and issues are driving change.

The lawyer who is representing John Boehner in his suit against President Obama has already argued that the suit has no legal standing.

There is no word yet on the cause of death.

House Will Spend More Investigating Benghazi Than On Ethics, Veterans, The Budget, Or Science

Budget hawks like the pictured Benghazi Committee Chair Trey Gowdy would be appalled if this money were spend on, say, welfare recipients. But if it’s to try to “get” President Obama on something, that’s a different story. The House could spend up to $3.3 million in taxpayer dollars over seven months on a special committee [...]

You May Be Denying Climate Change, But The US Military Isn’t

A military guy who was once a skeptic has changes his ways, largely because something got in the way of his previous position: facts.

Boehner: ‘I disagree’ with Sarah Palin on impeaching Obama

House Speaker John Boehner was wise to speak out about Sarah Palin’s “impeach Obama” media tour. Two words was all it took on Wednesday for House Speaker John Boehner to shoot down fellow Republican Sarah Palin’s call to impeach President Barack Obama. “I disagree,” Boehner told reporters at a regular press briefing.
