GOP foreign policy stalwarts George H.W. Bush, Henry Kissinger, Condi Rice, James Baker and Robert Gates all support passage of President Obama’s START treaty.

The brown people are coming to rape your women and kill your children, warns wingnut Sharron Angle. The Willie Horton ad is tame in comparison.

I don’t enjoy gambling, and I’d hate to have to choose between a corrupt, entitled hack (Harry Reid) and DeMint-ed loon Sharron Angle, who believes reporters should “ask the questions we want to answer, so that they report the news the way we want it reported.” She’s more of a Second Amendment gal. More proof … Continue reading One more reason not to live in Nevada
Christine O’Donnell, who said she would never lie — not even if she was hiding Jews and the Nazis came a-knockin’, has been caught in another whopper, and this one calls into question her mental health.

You can’t make this shit up, though I suspect GOP Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell did: “I dabbled into witchcraft — I never joined a coven. But I did, I did. I dabbled into witchcraft.

Palinite Christine O’Donnell sticks to script: Play the victim card, add plenty of empty platitudes, identify as a patriot, repeat. “Will they attack us? Yes. Will they smear our backgrounds and distort our records? Undoubtedly. Will they lie about us, harass our families, namecall to try to intimidate us? They will. There’s nothing safe about … Continue reading I’ll just die if I don’t get this Senate seat
