Republicans Find Nine Whole Women To Star In New Ad

It’s always comical to watch the party that never stops screeching about “identity politics” try its hand at nakedly empty appeals to those same groups, especially when their fake members are more compelling than the nine real ones. Hot on the heels of their “Republicans are people, too” campaign that included stock photos of people who [...]

We all remember when John Boehner took over as House Speaker with Tea Party support and declared that jobs would be priority one. We also remember that that promise was never a priority immediately after taking the gavel so tweeting out a blank jobs plan comes as no shock but it’s funny nevertheless. House Speaker [...]

Republicans want you to know that they are people, too, so an ad was created as well as the #IAmARepublican hashtag campaign. To hear their take on it, Republicans are all tatted up like some of us (I totally am), have beards (see: Duck Dynasty) and some of them are black. It’s not that we [...]

President Obama displayed the treasonous act of drinking coffee in public today. It’s all true. Obama saluted the Marines while holding a latte. Republicans are fundraising off of the President’s coffee salute. There’s a website set up called SemperLatte.com which reads, “Our Commander-in-Chief should take the time to properly salute our nation’s heroes in uniform. [...]

Susie Madrak picks up on Thomas Frank’s Salon piece that properly rips the Democratic Party. Shorter version: they don’t stand for anything. …data-minded commentator like Nate Cohn is able to look out over the blasted moonscape of Appalachia and conclude that a party of the left has nothing it might conceivably offer the people there. [...]

Recalled Arizona senate president Russell Pearce, who proposed the state’s controversial anti-immigration law, resigned as the state’s GOP Vice-chair following remarks he made regarding sterilizing poor women. On The Russell Pearce Show, he said,  “You put me in charge of Medicaid, the first thing I’d do is get Norplant, birth-control implants, or tubal ligations. Then [...]

With much fanfare after the 2012 debacle, the Republican party wandered into the wilderness to lick their wounds and contemplated what had gone wrong. The result of that uncharacteristic contemplation was an effort led by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus (double points on Scrabble for that name!) to rebrand the GOP. A new and improved, lemon-scented [...]

Poll after poll shows how much people hate the Republican Party, but when they go to the polls, voters still pull their levers. Poll after poll shows President Obama is unpopular and the Democratic Party is a little more unpopular. Neither, though, can touch the GOP, whose congressional contingent has a whopping 72 percent disapproval [...]

The Republican Party of Minnesota barred Supreme Court candidate Michelle MacDonald from the party’s State Fair booth on Thursday. MacDonald was ordered by security to leave. “We may as well look for justice on a stick because we can’t find it here!” MacDonald told supporters while leaving the booth following a 10-minute confrontation with a security [...]

When President Obama told The New York Times over the weekend that too many Republicans deny science, implying that they reject reason and fact-based policies, who knew he’d be vindicated so quickly? There are more than a few seemingly acceptable ways to defend fracking. Nearly all of these defenses are nearsighted, and some are wrong, [...]
