Clint vs. chair

Holy Christ. I got nothing. But here are some funny tweets I found: “This is a perfect representation of the campaign: an old white man arguing with an imaginary Barack Obama.” “Good luck fact-checking an old guy being mad at a chair. Your move, Think Progress.” “Worst. Hologram. Ever.” “Clint Eastwood demonstrating that seniors may […]

1. Two RNC attendees throw nuts at a black CNN camerawoman, saying “this is how we feed animals.” And that brief report from CNN is apparently all they’re going to say about it, even though this should be a big story. 2.

Do you have a way to explain that? Tom Smith: I lived […]

Yep, no chance anybody would ever think Mittens was born in Africa, right? He’s white! He’s so white! If this were an isolated incident I might question whether a racist dog whistle […]

Is anybody else feeling triggered by all the evil crap this week about rape and abortion? Because I am. Sometimes this stuff just really gets to me. I’m having a hard time settling down and getting my groove back.

Ryan Refuses To Say Abortions Should Be Available To Women Who Are Raped, reports Think Progress, and that’s because he deosn’t believe they should be available. To anyone. Ever. This is the world Paul Ryan wants: In the Dominican Republic, a pregnant 16-year-old girl with acute leukemia is denied the chemotherapy she desperately needs. Not […]

Todd Akin is defiant! Todd Akin didn’t do anything wrong! “I said one word in one sentence on one day, and everything changed,” Akin said today. “I believe the defense of the unborn and a deep respect for life. …They are not things to run away from.” Exactly right, Todd! Whatever you do, don’t run […]
