The definition of insanity? Rush Limbaugh. Today on his radio show, Limbaugh doubled way, way down on his misogyny mission. In an attempt at humor, one presumes, Limbaugh questioned what the definition of winning the war on women was and asked, “When do you pull out on the war on women?” Listen here courtesy of [...]
You want to see how absurd things are? How out of whack, how distorted? Here you go: Police and S.W.A.T. officers arrested a group of protesters who were sitting on the steps of the Capitol after protesting for women’s rights in Richmond, Virginia on March 3rd. 31 protesters were arrested in total. Yes, they were [...]
We have already seen how Republicans treat those who question them. We have seen people stomped on, arrested, seen their cameras seized, etc.
Mitt Romney’s gaffes and sense of entitlement have created a toxic relationship with the press, where he denies them access and then gets headlines that focus on his gaffes. Ann Romney takes on her husband’s bad relationship with the press and his tendency for gaffes by saying, “I’m no mad at the press that I [...]
On Countdown, Keith Olbermann noted that according to Rush Limbaugh’s definition, his own mother is a slut because she used birth control that she probably didn’t pay for 100% out of her own pocket. Here is the video from Current: Rush Limbaugh repeated his remarks about Sandra Fluke yesterday, “Well, what would you call someone [...]
Rush Limbaugh has jumped the shark. Today, Rush Limbaugh called a female college student who was denied a spot at the contraception hearing a “slut” and a “prostitute” while suggesting that she is making everyone pay her to have sex. Clearly, somebody’s jealous that someone else can have sex without assistance. Listen here courtesy of [...]
On Real Time, host Bill Maher tore into conservatives and pointed out that never in our history has a president been shown the kind of disrespect that conservatives show Obama. Here is the video: <a href=”http://www.zideo.nl/playzideo/6c4961526e6c3171″>Episode 238</a><a href=”http://www.zideo.nl/”>zideo.nl</a> Maher said, But there is something about this president that makes conservatives think it’s okay to go [...]

Among the crowds gathered in Union Square and elsewhere today in New York as a part of the occupation of Wall Street movement, 60-80 of the protesters are said to have been arrested, one person for taking a photo. Two young women were sprayed with what is said to be Mace/pepper spray by police, for [...]
Good morning, PoliticusUSA; you’ve been PWNed by “TiGER-M@TE”! I’m writing to you from a secure, non-disclosed location known as GOP Clown Show. Don’t ask, and I won’t tell. This morning when I opened PoliticusUSA to share my colleagues’ morning stories, an ominous black page replaced my story from last night on Occupy Wall Street. This [...]
Sarah Palin Proposes a Hunting Trip to Dick Cheney
Like the Razzies, we here at GOPClownShow do the Golden Elephant Award every year to spread the values of Mock and Scorn around. Worst Actress Ever (worse than JLo in Gigli and Madonna in Swept Away because there is simply NO redeeming factor here): Bristol Palin in Secret Lives. A consolation prize goes to the editor and director, for staying on the other actress for as long as possible without making it appear that Bristol’s voice was floating disconnected from any human.
A newly trout pouted Palin (those dead fish are swimmin’ upstream) pushes POT as the New Savior of the American Patriot on our Nations’ Ministry of Truth while old guard real former governor Huckabee mocks how high the quittin’ half-term governor is in her interview. I’m sure he was just kidding – right, Gov?
Dan has super cool toilet paper with which you can celebrate the ending to the W reign of terror, or if you prefer, you can use it to decorate patriots’ lawns in protest of their armed appearances at our Presidnt’s appearances. Oh, no, I kid. You know Homeland Security is just waiting to arrest nice liberal artists and toilet paper collectors who dare to litter the homes of our nation’s true patriots!
Some courageous patriots who don’t want us all to die or kill off our entire ecosystem were protesting the idiots who still buy gas at BP when the police came and blocked the bike lane so cars could get to the oils and gasses (aka, our precious most precious children)!!!!
Another slow news day. Oil is still leaking (or, as they say on Fox News, sharing or merging with ocean and critters — no PROBLEM though) and no one can stop it — not even President Obama, who is after all, responsible for everything including my failure to brush my teeth last night. We really need to vote him out of office. Remember the good old days, when the Chief sneered out “nuk-u-leer” with great affection? Sigh. Anyhoo, news is slow so OUT COME THE POLLS.
APPARENTLY, DEMOCRATS WILL LOSE SOME SEATS IN THE HOUSE THIS FALL! (Gasp! Get the smelling salts!)
$: The Governor Formerly Known as Sarah Palin The half-term governor formerly known as Sarah Palin has something in common with Prince: She is now known as a symbol rather than a name. Yes, when you see the $ sign, you know it’s a short hand reference to the half-term secessionist. $ is sort of [...]
Those mealy mouthed libertards who bash Sarah Palin are just scared of her. Scared because she represents God and Country as only a power-seeking secessionist could. They don’t understand liberty or George Washington like we do because George Soros has ‘em all brain-washed with Acorns.
Let’s play a game, shall we? The name of the game is called “Imagine.” The way it’s played is simple: we’ll envision recent happenings in the news, but then change them up a bit. Instead of envisioning white people as the main actors in the scenes we’ll conjure – the ones who are driving the action – we’ll envision black folks or other people of color instead. The object of the game is to imagine the public reaction to the events or incidents, if the main actors were of color, rather than white. Whoever gains the most insight into the workings of race in America, at the end of the game, wins.
If you thought the hypocrisy of the Family Values Republicans like Argentinian Trail Hiking Sanford swinging at C-Street was disgusting, check this out. Here is Rep Souder (R-IN) being interviewed by the woman he has been having an affair with, while smugly calling out Democrats for their failure to legislate morality (not a truly conservative value, FYI) over their insistence that Abstinence Only does not work – this has been proven by….Bristol Palin as well as those loathsome “supposed” scientists conducting research for the high-minded fact-lovin’ freaks on the left.
For the love of God, people, stop drunk dialing the astroturfing plastic Jesus at Freedom Works! You are NEVER going to get off the teat of Big Government if you keep harassing the lobbyists like this! Just look at the Geico guy! Fox and Freedom Works stuck it to him like good Fascists would and [...]
The HBO series “Treme” had a great song on the other night: Shame, Shame, Shame W! It captured my heart, and I knew it would yours:-)
Coward Mitch McConnell Obstructs Government from Cloak of Secrecy and Constituents Speak Out! The Republicans are engaged in high stakes game of hold laundering, meant to bring government to a standstill and hopefully make the country ungovernable so they can win a few elections this year…
Kim Kardashian, that bastion of authenticity, just looooves Fox! The Liberal Elite from Evil Hollywood (as portrayed by the Ministry of Truth at Fox News) claims Fox is “very reputable and the only news in the house!”
Republican Family Values Include Porn but not Abortion. Don’t ya hate it when your family values get tangled up in the skanky reality of your everyday life? I mean, if you’ve been busy repressing all those thoughts along with women’s rights, you know…it can get stuffy.
As if we needed more proof that “God’s Warriors” are really just misinformed, foul-mouthed, angry cracker-spewing, fast-food eating, Fox-viewing 23 percenters….Here ya’ go. Now, if you put some red Naughty Monkeys on this lady and took her on a Drillbilly raid of Neimans, you would have your Republican 2010 Presidential candidate.
“Drill baby drill!” The Republican bumper sticker energy policy is not lookin’ so hot…Thanks to the last 8 years of massive deregulation, we now have 40% if our wetlands being attacked by oil slicks. A haunting look back at the leaders of “drill baby drill” and the mindless drones following them.
Or, cops dressed in riot gear ask Teabaggers to move off street so motorcade of duly elected President of USA can drive safely down street. DOH.There are some older white women present. Danger, Will Robinson. Oh, yeah. This so has legs! Nobama and his SWAT of evil communists! Here’s the Video for proof — you have to imagine the SWAT team and also, too, them beating back whitey, but the rest of it is SO real!
One of the benefits of not being a modern day Republican is that one’s friends tend to not be utter morons. To this end, a friend sent me this quote today:
“Nationalism is our form of incest, is our idolatry, is our insanity. ”Patriotism” is its cult.”
Bill Maher New Rules April 23, 2010 Bill Becomes a Teabagger
It didn’t take the Republican Party long to completely distort a new report that health care reform will increase health care spending. Republicans are calling the bill a fiscal disaster without telling voters that the report only looked at expenditures, not increasing revenues, which are the savings will come from.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been wondering exactly what conservatives stand for during the last…oh, 15 years or so. It seems to me that they stand for fidelity, unless they’re doing the cheating, and fiscal responsibility unless they’re actually in charge, and safety for America unless they’re actually in charge….So it was with great relief that I read this interview with Mitt Romeny, wherein he explained that conservatives think that only the states know what’s best for the people (unless they’re in charge at Federal level).
Watch how they get us to buy one lie at a time, while they razzle dazzle us with fear, accusations, and dramatic narratives. This is how they sold us WMD. One lie at a time. And it’s how they’re selling the country on “Socialism” , Sarah Palin as a viable candidate for anything other than WalMart greeter and Party Cheerleader, and George W Bush.
One lie at a time. Terror alert levels manipulated around election times. The Patriot Act as something to protect us. No Child Left Behind as a program to benefit all children. Etc.

Virginia’s Governor Bob McDonnell declared April as “Confederate History and Heritage Month”. The thing about Confederate History, just so you know, is that the Great War of Yankee Aggression had nothing to do with slavery. So, it’s not worth mentioning. The Civil War was about state’s rights, not slavery. Tariffs, not slavery. The needs of the southern farmer versus the Northern industrial expansion.
A new poll of Republicans by Harris brought bad news for the White House aspirations of both Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin, who both find themselves trailing none of the above. Among Republicans Romney leads Palin, 14%-13%, when voters were asked who the leader of the GOP is, but None beat both of them with 34%. Thus far neither Palin nor Romney has convinced Republicans that they can turn the Party of No into the Party of Go.
Now, what we have here is just another right-winger who thinks the bill was never made available to read, but nonetheless feels super comfy taking a national stand against something he never read. I’m guessing he watches Fox News, so the fact that he has now made a national embarrassment of himself should come as no shock. He let them do the decidin’ for him. They’re all fair and balanced over there. Yup. Never mind the Saudi Prince. Nothin’ to see here.
Sen. Joe Lieberman must not pay very much attention to current events, because on Meet The Press today he stressed that Islamic terrorists are a bigger threat to Americans than homegrown terrorists. Lieberman said, “I would not overstate this threat. It is not as significant as the global threat of Islamist extremism, but it is real.” Oh Joe, that is so Bush era 9/11 of you to say, and dangerously inaccurate to boot.
On CNN’s Reliable Sources today Howard Kurtz interviewed David Frum who in 20 seconds explained how Rush Limbaugh and Fox News are now running the GOP. Frum said, “Fox, like Limbaugh, has an interest in pushing the Republicans to the margins, making people angry.” The Republican Party is being forced to deal with the fact that angry powerless feeling people don’t vote. They tend to stay home.
This was actually a reply to a faithful reader at GOPCLownShow, a Republican named Jana. Goodness knows why Jana comes here to “GOPCLownShow”, as this is meant to poke fun at the ridiculousness of her party, but she has conducted herself with the utmost decorum and civility — and so, I find myself glad she’s [...]
John Boehner—dangerously orange man and hard core Catholic who went to Xavier to become a “business consultant” — should get inspired by Steele to advise the Pope and the Church to try out Lesbian Bondage since it is A) its less controversial and B) it can help with fundraising!
In order to avoid showing President Obama’s remarks after he signed the final health care bill today, Fox News cut away from the president to show footage of a perfectly fine airplane landing. Fox justified the cut away because they had heard that the plane might be having flap issues. The real reason that they cut away is that they did not want to give Obama any airtime to discuss the health care bill that he signed.
Come one, come all! The Tea Klux Klan is a gatherin’ in the wild for their version of Woodstock! Which means, bring your anger, your guns, your misspelled signs, Kool Aid and the kids (home schollin’ is the way to go!) — we gonna party hatriot style!
