Talking Ted Cruz-Scariest Candidate Running

So, Rafael “Ted” Cruz wants to be President of the United States. That should scare the crap out of any sane person. Ted and his supposed pastor father (I say “supposed” because there is scant evidence of his ever pastoring a church) subscribe to a very dark end-times religious doctrine referred to as Dominionism, and the two of them have decreed that Ted is ordained by God to lead the Government. There is a reason none of the people like him who know him, and there is a very good reason people who find themselves in his presence get a sense of creepiness. But he’s way more than just an unattractive, vindictive demagogue…he’s a downright scary person with a set of religious beliefs that make the most radical Muslim clerics look tame.

Is Huckabee the Biggest Jerk in America?

So Mike Huckabee’s latest rant against the Black Man in the White House. President Obama has nominated Eric K. Fanning as the Secretary of Army. What has the Huckster’s knickers all in a wad? The fact that Under Secretary Fanning happens to be gay…because, clearly, Rev. Asshole doesn’t think gay people should have jobs.

Science vs Jindal

Well, Bobby Jindal succeeds, yet again, in making an idiot of himself. He apparently decided that he should tell President Obama what the President should and shouldn’t say during his visit to New Orleans. An article on Think Progress discusses Jindal’s fear that actual facts and science might be discussed in Louisiana this week.

Poll-2016 Presidential Election

So, let’s take the long list, as it seems to be shaking out today, and see who you all think should be the next President. Note, this is “Should” be President. We’ll ask in a later poll who you think will be. We’ll let the herd thin itself a little before that.

Trump and Religion

Donald Trump has basically been caught in a lie about his personal convictions. We start with him making a big thing in an interview about how religious he is, about how much he loves the Bible, about how he really likes both Testaments equally, and how he reads it all the time. I’d say, then the wheels come off, but they were never even actually on.

President Comments on Jason Collins' Coming Out

President Obama says all the right things, if he’d just use the powers he does have to put some of his convictions into practice, I’d be happier. Today, at the end of a press conference, the President pivoted and returned to the podium to take one last question about Jason Collins coming out.

Deep Poll: Who Are You Voting for This Year

Here’s a new poll asking who you are voting for in the 2012 Presidential Election. Remember…”No One” is a valid choice too. Sounds strange, but we’re don’t want to know who you support, but if you are going to actually vote for that person on or before election day. Give us your thoughts.

Jim Burroway at Box Turtle Bulletin brings this YouTube video to our attention. It is Pastor Frederick B. Haynes of Friendship West Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas preaching about the hating on Obama on his stance around gay marriage. I don’t know how, but I’m thankful that here is a minister who gets it, and isn’t afraid to say so. “…But whatever you like to ostracize other people it’s because there’s a fear that you have yourself, and the fear that you have finds itself rooted in an ignorance of other people. “

Fair Game - A Movie Review

As a covert officer in the CIA’s Counter-Proliferation Division, Valerie Plame leads an investigation into the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Valerie’s husband, diplomat Joe Wilson, is drawn into the investigation to substantiate an alleged sale of enriched uranium from Niger. But when the administration ignores his findings and uses the issue to support the call to war, Joe writes a New York Times editorial outlining his conclusions and ignites a firestorm of controversy. This is well acted, tightly written and directed with straight-forward finesse making it one of the finest films of the year.

It Would Be Funny If It Weren't So Scary

These are interviews with the 60,00 to 70,000 people who turned out for the big Tea Bagger March in Washington. Apparently, you don’t have to really know anything about what you’re protesting. It’s all just bad because it is Obama, and some industry or media flak like Glenn Beck told you to be mad and scared.
