Carville: GOP On Verge Of Extinction

If Republicans lose in 2016, says James Carville, that will be the end of them. “The most likely, though not the only scenario is Hillary Clinton is the presumptive nominee. Everybody’s going to have a poll in the field showing how they fare against Hillary. They’re not going to not nominate somebody because of Common […]

Not One Law Republicans Passed Has Helped America In Over Forty Years

December 2, 1970 was the last time a Republican created something that benefits the greater good of society. Seriously, it’s been over forty years since any Republican has successfully enacted legislation that is based on scientific data, also known as reality. Richard M. Nixon created the EPA in 1970 which marks the last time the party behaved responsibly by utilizing […]

Republicans Unwittingly Vote For Obamacare Improvement; Boehner Fecklessly Skulks And Spins In The Shadows

As long as the radical, far-right tea party wing of the GOP continues to exist, the party’s establishment will have no choice but to skulk around in the shadows — the only place where they can act like adults and where they don’t have to be feckless posers, pandering to extremists who have no grasp […]

Walsh: GOP’s Hideous Strategy To Survive As The ‘White Party’

Republicans are doing everything they can to suppress the Democratic vote and enhance its showing among white Americans, as Joan Walsh chronicles. Republicans like to think of themselves as the Christian party, so it never entirely made sense that they oppose what’s become known as “Souls to the Polls,” a big push by black churches […]

Please, Republicans, Run Against Obamacare This Year And We’ll See You In November

Anyone who tells you the GOP is a lock for holding onto the House of Representatives while taking back the Senate in the midterms doesn’t know what the hell they’re talking about. Why? Because it’s April. The election isn’t for another seven months. That’s a huge block of time, especially knowing how the speed of […]

Gallup Shows More Young Voters Leaning Democratic

Via Political Wire, Gallup shows more trouble for the Republican Party in its current incarnation. The part of old white men is going to have to change–fast. “Young adults — those between the ages of 18 and 29 — have typically aligned themselves with the Democratic Party, but they have become substantially more likely to […]

Congress To Vote Today On Republican Bill Attacking National Parks, Antiquities Act

I spent most of Saturday hiking up and down the impossibly steep trails of Muir Woods National Monument. The expanse of ancient redwood groves and lush pine forests near San Francisco Bay was set aside in 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt and named in honor of the conservationist chiefly responsible for the existence of our […]

A few months ago, the GOP had a lot of fun at the expense of an ill-conceived Healthcare.gov web advertisement featuring a pajamas-clad, irony-embracing, man-child Millennial hipster, smirking and sipping hot cocoa. I’ll be the first to admit that the “Get Covered” campaign stepped into a fastball on that one and deservingly got beaned in […]

RNC Chair Says 2014 Will Be ‘Tsunami Election’ For Republicans

At a Christian Science Monitor breakfast in DC, Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus said, “I think we’re in for a tsunami-type election in 2014.” ”My belief is, it’s going to be a very big win, especially at the U.S. Senate level, and we may add some seats in congressional races,” Priebus predicted. “But I need […]

The Top 10 Most Egregious Republican Lies

We spend a hell of a lot of time at The Daily Banter debunking various myths, slogans and lies, and the undisputed champion of easily debunkable myths continues to be the Republican Party. To be sure, this isn’t to suggest that all Republicans are easily-misled simpletons. They’re not. Yet their party consistently panders to its […]
