Paul Ryan Can’t Differentiate Fact from Fiction

I watched the first couple of episodes until he cheated on his wife with that reporter. It turned my stomach so much that I just couldn’t watch it anymore. His behavior was so reprehensible, and it hit too close to home because he was a House member, that it just bothered me too much. And what I thought is, it makes us all look like we’re like that.

— Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), to Parade, on why he doesn’t watch “House of Cards” anymore.

On FOX, The Truth is Faster


Number of minutes FOX News used to point out that the recent CBS 60 Minutes piece, which was later found to have falsely portrayed events in Benghazi, backed up the Republican portrayal of the incident. That was three times the length of the original 60 Minutes report. Amount of time FOX spent on the subsequent correction: 26 seconds.

This Could Be the ‘Willie Horton’ Ad of This Campaign

Just when you thought the Tea Party had shriveled up and died, their super PAC comes out with this piece of vileness that panders to the whitest part of the GOP base.

Jimmy Fallon’s “Romney and Bain”

I almost like this one better than the original — especially the part about 2016!

Oh Yeah, THIS Will Help Republicans Among Women

O’Reilly posted a video someone made of Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) talking about her curly hair and then commenting on a recent news story with a new, straight hairstyle. Hey Debbie: Love the new look. You go, girl. Hey Bill: Srsly? Moron.

Eating Their Own: Coulter Hates Jeb

I think, on closer examination, Jeb Bush would be the worst of all candidates to run. For one thing, we don’t need another Bush. That would be embarrassing to the Republican Party. He’s more pro amnesty for illegals than his brother was, more than Rick Perry was.

– Republican color commentator Ann Coulter, announcing she hates Jeb Bush and apparently wasn’t too fond of his big brother either. Could have fooled us.

If Mitt Were Michael Scott…

Great job on this video from — except that guy’s makeup is a little wonky. Oh well, he still captures Mitt’s alien-like awkwardness with actual humans.

FOX Exploits Their Feckless Viewers by Switching Romney Picture for Obama

In what has become standard operating procedure at the so-called news organization, FOX, a graphic “accidentally” swapped out a photo of someone FOX doesn’t like and replaced it with a photo of a Democrat they like even less. Media Matters has both the original, from Wednesday, Nov. 14, and the “correction,” used later in the […]

Rep. Chris Murphy Calls Lowe’s on Its Cowardice

Nailed it:

“Lowe’s defends itself by saying they’re pulling these ads because some of their customers have, quote, strong political and social views on this topic. Well congratulations to Lowe’s for acknowledging that there are some really bigoted people in the world. That doesn’t mean that Lowe’s or any other company should acquiesce to this kind of behavior. For instance, there are unfortunately a lot of people out there who still hold racist views about African-Americans, but I don’t think that Lowe’s is going to be pulling its ads from television shows featuring African-Americans.”

We’ll Get Back to You on That
