Apparently Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas really really wants to be this generation’s Joe McCarthy.
Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert doubled down on warnings of Muslim Brotherhood influence in America Thursday while taking a shot at the media for not investigating his claims further.
The Republican suggested reporters were more interested in attacking him than [...]
Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann, a member of the most extreme elements of the conservative movement (and a Grade-A bigot to boot) has taken to smearing the reputation of Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. In a manner reminiscent of the anti-communist witch hunts of former Republican U.S. Senator Joe [...]

Their brains were smoking from the sheer volume of dishonesty pouring from the Drake University GOP Klown Kar Kandidate Debate. They invoke the dreaded “baloney” attribution to the entire debate.
OK, Newt’s an adulterer, and not that much of an adult, but the Republicans have got to take what they can get, I suppose. This week’s polling of the Republican Presidential primary field is about the most ludicrous yet. Sure, we all knew that serial sexual harrasser Herman Cain would go down eventually. But I [...]
