Chalkboard Fail at CPAC

The Conservative Political Action Conference wrapped up this weekend, bringing out the craziest of the crazies for a hate-filled week of paying tribute to ignorance and white superiority. But just in case you thought they forgot about racism and inequality, the booth … Continue reading

Paul Ryan Shames Poor Parents, Poor Kids

I was going to say something witty or snarky about this, but frankly this may be the most despicable thing Paul Ryan has ever said. [Ryan] told an anecdote he said was relayed to him by Eloise Anderson, Wisconsin Gov. … Continue reading

Keepin’ It Classy

You know what isn’t funny ever? Rape jokes. Especially rape jokes that are made at the expense of a rape survivor. This is so bad they even sent someone out onto the stage to tell him to shut up. By … Continue reading

I Watched Sarah Palin’s CPAC Speech So You Don’t Have To

My Monday column provides a valuable public service: I might be one of very few observers outside of the CPAC bubble who thinks Sarah Palin could still be a serious player on the national political stage. In fact, I don’t … Continue reading

Totally Not Racist

Here’s a CPAC participant who both defended slavery and segregation as “good” for African Americans. A panel at the Conservative Political Action Committee on Republican minority outreach exploded into controversy on Friday afternoon, after an audience member defended slavery as … Continue reading

A Dispatch from the Outreach Seminar

It’s time for another update from the UFO convention. Texas Governor Rick Perry was booed from the back of the room yesterday after he condescendingly referred to the idea that the Republican party must appeal to Hispanic voters which, according … Continue reading

A Dispatch from the UFO Convention

The opening day of CPAC went in unexpected directions as The Gohmert Pyle took the stage. For example — this is a new one. Gohmert: I’m not gonna debate the merits of whether we should or should not have gone … Continue reading

Governor Howdy Doody Suffers Another Setback, The Stupid Party is Still Stupid

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s signature legislation, which I lovingly refer to as “Jesus Rode a Dinosaur Education,” has been ruled unconstitutional in its entirety. Gov. Bobby Jindal’s education overhaul dealing with teacher tenure and evaluations was ruled unconstitutional Monday by … Continue reading

CPAC Snubs Chris Christie

I still firmly believe that the conservative far-right will hold a very long grudge against Christie for the Sandy debacle, and it will prevent him from winning the nomination in 2016. For instance: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) has … Continue reading

The Face of Insanity

Making an appearance at the halfway point in his metamorphosis into an actual troll, Andrew Breitbart addressed CPAC yesterday in contradiction to his previous pledge to boycott the event. Following his appearance last night, he ventured outside to yell at … Continue reading

Romney Lied to CPAC. A lot.

Steven Benen — who is doing some of his best work for MaddowBlog — debunks Romney’s cavalcade of lies in his CPAC speech yesterday: 1. Romney claimed, “We are the only people on the earth that put our hand over … Continue reading

Family Values the Lunch Box. Family Values the Breakfast Cereal.

Tim Murphy of Mother Jones posted a collection of conservative swag and conspiracy-theorist paraphernalia being sold and distributed at this year’s World’s Worst Persons Convention (CPAC). As you might expect, the items that can be found at the convention wouldn’t … Continue reading

Jackass Quote of the Day

Of all the horrible things said at the Worlds Worst Persons Convention (CPAC), I think this is by far the worst of the worst. At a CPAC panel on the new contraception rule conservatives are rallying against, the moderator played … Continue reading

Santorum Loves Stool

Okay, it’s Friday, so I deserve a flagrantly childish post. Rick Santorum is effing weird. At CPAC yesterday he kept using the word “stool”: We hear a lot and we’ve heard a lot about the three-legged stool of Ronald Reagan. … Continue reading
