    Reality TV, duck calls and homophobia came to a head this weekend during the "I Stand Sunday" event at Grace Community Church, a protest thrown by conservative Christians in their fight against the "dark forces" and the "radical agenda" that is (apparently) sweeping our nation.

    Ted Cruz Has Been Spending A Lot of Time Iowa: Can He Win the Iowa Caucus?

    Ted Cruz wants to be President of these United States. While this is unlikely -- the party elites dislike him, view him as an electoral disaster waiting to happen and he would never emerge from the "invisible primary" as the GOP elites' choice -- Cruz dares to dream. Thus, he has been spending an in ... More >>

    Texas In 2016: Hillary Beats Rick Perry?

    Sarah Palin Visits Chick-Fil-A in The Woodlands, Presumably to Hate On the Gays

    Mike Huckabee did it. Rick Santorum did it (I don't mean having his last name irreversibly associated with a rather disgusting by-product of certain sexual acts). And now Sarah Palin has done Texas. All three politicians have recently gone out of their way to promote Chick-Fil-A, in what so ... More >>

    Politicians Singing: Where Does Colin Powell's "Call Me Maybe" Rank?

    In what was a surprising move, at least to us, former Secretary of State Colin Powell broke into a bit of this year's song of the summer, "Call Me Maybe," today on whatever CBS is calling its morning show these days. Let's just say he didn't nail it. But was it the worst stab at singing by a moder ... More >>

    Harry Truman and Bess: Another E-mail from Your Dad

    Like most of you, I get e-mails from my dad full of "facts" that are basically telling me how much better life was in the past than it is now.

    10 Rock Stars the GOP Should Nominate for President

    As the 2012 presidential race begins to heat up in earnest, Rocks Off can't help but feel that the front-runners for the Republican nomination are lacking a certain je ne sais quoi.
