One of the many hilarious tweets about the Hobby Lobby case. Too bad it also misses the point. The wonderful website Wonkette dissected former Sen. Rick Santorum’s (R-Penn.) defense of a case the U.S. Supreme Court recently agreed to hear, but they only rebutted the most obvious aspect. The decor and craft merchandiser Hobby Lobby, [...]
You know all those, “Ain’t it awful?” stories you’ve been hearing ad nauseam since the launch of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) website on Oct. 1? Expect to hear not one more word. Now that things are working great, we’re betting that not only will you never hear again how bad they are, you will [...]
Police in Seminole County, Fla. must be getting tired of seeing George Zimmerman’s face. The man who shot and killed the unarmed teen Trayvon Martin and was then acquitted of murder under one of the country’s most lax definitions of self-defense* was arrested again, this time for domestic violence against his current girlfriend.

Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) all but rigged his recent landslide re-election victory, but you know what makes a better story? See if these themes sound familiar: Sixty percent win lands Christie at top of 2016 presidential contenders Huge victory shows Christie’s broad, non-partisan appeal to voters Christie’s re-election signals end to divisiveness in politics These [...]
Much is being made of Bill de Blasio’s recent mayoral win in New York City, with the Washington Post even calling it “historic,” since he will be the first Democrat to serve in that office since David Dinkins won in 1989. It’s not just worth nothing that de Blasio won, but how. De Blasio focused [...]
Former Florida Republican Gov. Charlie Crist is running for governor in 2014 as a Democrat. The official announcement was made in Crist’s hometown of St. Petersburg, and puts an end, not to speculation that Crist would run, but to when the campaign would begin. It’s on. Alex Sink (D), former state chief financial officer, who [...]
