The B*tt Plug Stops Here

Media jump on the opportunity to report about politicians and their proclivity to invade our bedrooms and tell us that sex and the sex industry cause moral decay.

Bang Bang Update

Thanksgiving weekend seems like a weird time to bring up something morbid, but maybe there’s no better time of the year to memorialize all the Americans who can’t say thanks this year because of guns.

The Lying Nun

Have you ever secretly wanted to be a fly on the wall at a GOP fundraiser? No? Why not?

To Beep or Not to Beep

Conservatives are always outraged about something. A few weeks ago, we told you about the right-wing umbrage being tossed around — not because of Obamacare – but because of good old comic books. Well, for the conservative Comic-Con set, it’s getting worse. Conservative comic book writers have already complained that illustrated heroes have become too … Continue reading

Don’t Look at New York in That Tone of Voice

  New Yorkers may not have the best reputation, but there’s no denying that we got the smarts to somehow keep this “ungovernable city” humming. That can generate some resentment.
