Unfair and Unbalanced….

The “Fox news” network of such miscreants as Glenn beck and Bill O has now donated $1 Million to the Republican Governors Association. In another surprise, “fox news” has failed to mention the donation. While I am sure it is just an oversight, another possible explanation is they do not have permission yet they do […]

Target Continues to Feel the Heat, Best Buy gets singed too

Target’s misguided $150,000 donation to MN Forward to be used in campaigning by anti-gay, anti-immigrant GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Emmer continues to generate heat for the corporation.

Jill Bader’s explanation debunked, courtesy of the illusory tenant

On Monday I noted the controversy surrounding a racially-tinged tweet made by Jill Bader, the communications director for the campaign of Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Walker, and while Bader apologized and chalked the incident up to a case of her mistakenly re-tweeting the wrong link, the illustrious illusory tenant completely and thoroughly debunks Bader’s apology […]

Ron Johnson’s explanation for global warming: sunspots!

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ron Johnson, who’s not a believer in all that man-made global warming mumbo jumbo, has a simple explanation for the extreme weather linked to global warming: sunspots! A global warming skeptic, Johnson said extreme weather phenomena were better explained by sunspots than an overload of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, as […]
