    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 >>

    It is, after all, almost 2014. And we know that the beginnings of what political scientists call the "invisible primary" are well underway -- i.e., the GOP (and the Dems, but more on that in another post) elites are already deciding who is a viable presidential candidate and ideologically trustworth ...

    Texas-Based Christian Film House Recruits New CEO, Who Enjoys Comparing Gay Sex to Bestiality

    For those who'd missed the recent UT/Texas Tribune poll, 30 percent of Texans professed to believing in the literalism of the Bible. That's nearly eight million of those in our state who believe that God naturally demands the tip of babies' penises(!), and that it is a sin to eat lobster or wear a s ... More >>

    Palin, Santorum, and Perry Remind the NRA Convention of America's Greatness, and that Greatness Comes from a Gun

    There was a point in Rick Santorum's history lesson, a point in the former Pennsylvania senator's spiel last Friday about the horrific transition President Obama has yet in store for America, when the 20,000-strong audience at the 2013 NRA Convention sat perfectly silent.

    Where Have All Our Heroes Gone?: The Four Saddest Fallen Idols of Our Generation

    When we're kids, we'll look anywhere for idols and role models. Most often, we look to pop culture and we find our heroes there by way of idolizing whoever's work we enjoy the most.

    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 it...in Texas. All three politicians have recently gone out of their way to promote Chick-Fil-A, in what so ... More >>

    Rick Santorum & Rick Perry: A Tale of Two Also-Rans

    Sad, sad news today for anyone looking to take America back to the 1920s: Rick Santorum is dropping out of his heroic presidential run.

    Forget Etch-a-Sketch: Vintage `60s Toys For Newt, Obama & Rick

    A spokesman for Mitt Romney stepped in it this week when he cited the 1960s toy Etch-a-Sketch when discussing how easy it would be for his candidate to pivot, issues-wise, from appealing to the rightwingers of the GOP primary to the more centrist voters in the general election. It was a bad metapho ... More >>
