  • At home with the Cruzes

    Ted Cruz:  “Daddy’s home, girls!  Let’s wash our hands for dinner.” Daughter #1:  “I’m not eating.” Ted:  “Why not, Princess?” Daughter #1:  “Because the kids at school said you’ve taken food out of the mouths of babies.” Ted:  “Come on, Kitten, that’s nonsense.  You’re too young...

  • Tea Party 12 Step Program

    Admit you are powerless over any gun control.  The Second Amendment and God give you the right to purchase any gun, any time to shoot anybody who is threatening any ground where you’d like to stand.  Pretty sure it’s in the Bible. Admit a power...

  • It’s God’s plan

    Last July, five months after George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin at point-blank range, he granted an interview with FOX News’ Sean Hannity.  That interview was played by the prosecution during Zimmerman’s trial to show that, in addition to being a murderer, George is...

  • Mission accomplished

    Joy Reid, managing editor of TheGrio.com and MSNBC contributor, resurrected George Bush’s premature proclamation to describe the latest circle-jerk fantasy.  Racial minorities no longer face obstacles to casting votes in America. This week, the Supreme Court struck down Section 4 of the 1963 Voting Rights...
