John Boehner (2011-2015)


Boehner says he is leaving “for the good of the institution.”

How is letting the mental patients take over “good” for the “institution?”



Please let him serve the whole 109 years.

The president of conservative pro-family group Faith2Action last weekend announced the pre-launch of ReaganBook, a social networking site described as “the Facebook for patriots,” according to Right Wing Watch.

Porter lamented that “while tomorrow Facebook employees are gathering to go march at the gay pride parade in San Francisco,” they are censoring people with “unpopular opinions.”

Is it possible their unpopular opinions are the reason they are, ever so slowly, being forced from polite society.

Ted Cruz Stinks!

“I would end up fielding the [girls’] complaints: ‘Could you please keep your roommate out of our hallway?'” his undergrad roommate at Princeton Craig Mazin told the Daily Beast over the summer. (“I would rather have anybody else be the president of the United States. Anyone,” Mazin added. “I would rather pick somebody from the phone book.”)

But Ted won the Values Voters straw poll! Suppose the Values Voters were standing upwind.

Who Would Jesus Starve?

All Y'all Need to Get Out of My CoochProving yet again their hypocrisy and fixation for the pre-born over the born, a week before the government shutdown the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops sent a letter to Congress urging them to include the revocation of contraceptive coverage in the Affordable Care Act as one of the Republicans’ hostage demands over the shutdown and raising the debt ceiling.

As Congress considers a Continuing Resolution and debt ceiling bill in the days to come, we reaffirm the vital importance of incorporating the policy of this bill into such “must-pass” legislation.

I guess it’s okay that the 53% of LIVING American babies who receive benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants & Children (WIC) will go without assistance ($109 million in unpaid vouchers as of this morning); that Head Start programs close their doors for early-childhood programs; that VA employees are being worked like rented mules to get benefits out the door for disabled veterans, and there aren’t benefits being paid to survivors of dead soldiers; that NIH and NSF have had to cut off funding for scientific researchers that can stop illnesses and prolong lives; that the CDC has food inspectors furloughed so nobody is around to investigate salmonella outbreaks affecting people in 20 states; or that money from HUD to assist in funding affordable housing will dry up if this lasts much longer.

The important thing is that the church make sure those uppity whores who dare to have sex for any reason than to have a baby not have access to birth control.

6a00d8341c691053ef0112790b562d28a4David Vitter is a piece of shit. He screamed family values in an ad that helped get him elected, then got caught fucking hookers. Prostitution should be legal, sure, but if you’re a guy that gets elected by claiming he’s loyal to his spouse and his family, and you’re not, you deserve to be thrown out of office. Somehow, Louisiana voters don’t agree with that sentiment.

Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) on Friday sent a letter to the Senate Ethics Committee requesting an investigation of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) for what he calls “attempted bribery.”

The letter responded to reports that Senate Democrats were shopping around a plan to deny government contributions to lawmakers’ health care plans if there is “probable cause” they solicited prostitutes. The proposal would effectively dredge up Vitter’s 2007 prostitution scandal unless he stopped pressuring the Senate to vote on an amendment repealing federal contributions to legislators’ health plans.

The graphic, by the way, was done by BlueGal – the hooker on the left, the wife (fittingly) on the right. Interesting ….
