I knew has-been game show host Chuck Woolery was a wingnut, but I didn't know he was a Glenn Beck/black helicopters/FEMA concentration camps variety wingnut until this SRWT.
Recent studies have shown that the United States lags behind other developing countries <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/17/social-immobility-climbin_n_501788.html">in social mobility </a>-- what is often known as the "American Dream." And it's particularly hard to go from rags to riches<a href="http://crooksandliars.com/blue-texan/social-mobility-much-more-difficult-red"> in the Red States</a>.
What I love about this poll is that a full 28% of Georgia Republicans have a negative opinion of MLK.
Calling Wendy Davis an "abortion Barbie" is very Christian-y, isn't it? And he's rolling in the insult <a href="https://twitter.com/EWErickson/status/364952824590778371">like a pig in filth.</a>
Wingnuts just can't make up their mind. Either Obama is a ruthless dictator, showering the globe with <a href="http://www.redstate.com/2013/05/22/drone-strikes-barack-obama-eric-holder/">"illegal" drone strikes</a> and <a href="http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0411/52599.html">recklessly starting wars</a> -- or he's a weak appeaser, afraid to stand up to The Terrorists.
It's always good to be reminded how much contempt right-wingers have for working people.
The Village media does not like Ted Cruz (R-TX) at all. It's hard to remember so much disdain being heaped on a Republican Senator in a single segment like this.
Few wingnut tweets are stupider than the tired "it's cool in my neighborhood today, so global warming is bogus" variety.
People who follow politics know that the Republicans have voted to nullify the results of the last two presidential elections <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/26/40th-obamacare-repeal-vote_n_3660999.html">about 40 times.</a> That's 4-0. Forty. Or roughly the number of Oreos Erickson eats on the couch every night while watching reruns of "The Dukes of Hazzard."
Here's what Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told TIME about the politics of immigration reform <a href="http://swampland.time.com/2013/06/11/immigration-reform-qa-with-senator-lindsey-graham/">last month.</a>
Charles Krauthammer insists there's nothing at all wrong with voter ID laws.
Much to the right's dismay, <strong>SCANDALMANIA '13</strong> was a big bust. Republicans and their allies in the right-wing media and blogosphere tried their best, but just couldn't get any of the "scandals" -- from <em>Benghazi!</em> to the IRS -- to stick.
Conservatives love to give lip service to the American Dream. And to achieve it, they insist, all you need to do is work really hard.
There was <a href="http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2013/07/19/2330191/conservative-freakout-race-speech/">a veritable gold rush of SRWTs </a> after the President made some remarks about the George Zimmerman verdict.
A few months ago, Jeb Bush <a href="http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/07/17/has-the-g-o-p-gone-off-the-deep-end/?ref=opinion">said this:</a>
