    Trey Gowdy Is Not A Conservative Leader

    Former Congressman Allen West has a massive following. He is loud and bombastic. His followers think he is rock-solid conservative and is their response to Obama, the first black President. It turns out he was decidedly mediocre when he served in Congress, despite his fiery rhetoric. Congressman Trey Gowdy is a similar case. He is known for his epic demonstrations of wit during oversight committee | Read More »

    Jonathan Gruber Was Right About Stupid American Voters

    After sitting back and watching “Grubergate” unfold, it is clear that Republicans are trying to capitalize on, more than anything, Jonathan Gruber’s reference to the stupidity of the American voter. It’s hard to tell whether the outrage over his contempt is genuine or faux. But putting Gruber’s despicable motivations and methods aside, he was right about American voters. They are stupid, and frankly, that is | Read More »

    Read What Planned Parenthood Supporters Really Think About Children

    CAUTION/NSFW: Vulgar language is used in the comments. While perusing the Planned Parenthood Action Facebook page, I noticed someone had posted a comment advocating that taxpayer money be cut off from the organization. In the volley of comments that followed, I got to read the true nature of the most steadfast defenders of Planned Parenthood and abortion, which I proceeded to screenshot.
