No, Wingnuts, Michelle Obama Isn't Taking Your Chick-fil-A Away

(26) Comments | Posted September 24, 2014 | 11:12 AM

As the rest of America frets over ISIS, I'd like to turn my attention to what could be emerging as a much more serious and significant threat to national security. And no, I'm not talking about Khorasan.

Dont Like "Merry Christmas?" Sue Me.

Merry Christmas, everybody!

Yes, I realize it's March and it's completely inappropriate and unseasonal to wish someone "Merry Christmas" nine months in advance, but understand this -- I'm not wishing you a Merry Christmas because I should, I'm doing it because I can!

I live in the state of Tennessee,...

Late Friday, in a move that surprised no one who understands how the American economy works, A&E announced it was calling off its suspension of Phil Robertson.

Robertson, for those of you who've been living in a cave on Mars, is the hard-livin', hard-prayin', duck-huntin' patriarch of America's...

In case you didn't hear -- and based on the lack of national outrage, you didn't! -- there are certain people in this country who believe the president of the United States is a terrorist.

I'm not talking about the usual birthers, wing nuts, morons and conspiracy theorists who think...

George Zimmerman -- Hero?

(6) Comments | Posted July 25, 2013 | 10:55 AM

Hey everybody! Did you hear the good news?

Apparently it's perfectly acceptable to kill a person as long as you save a bunch of other people from a car wreck.

That's the message I'm getting from Sanford, Florida, anyway.

Allow me to explain.

This week, we received word...

Hey, North Dakota: Abortions Don't Kill People, People Kill People!

(7) Comments | Posted March 26, 2013 | 10:39 AM

Question: Why is North Dakota trying to ban abortion?

Don't they know that abortion laws don't work? You can pass all the abortion laws you want, but if a mother really wants to kill her child, she's still going to kill the child with a knife, a bomb, a...

Ann Romney Takes on the Media

(48) Comments | Posted March 4, 2013 | 1:10 PM

Rich white guys just can't get a fair shake these days. Case in point: Mitt Romney.

Remember Mitt Romney? He's the well-coiffed, policy-challenged Republican who lost to Barack Obama in the 2012 election.

Romney lost the election for a variety of reasons. First, he has no personality. Second, he...
