Forget Bachman and Palin: Ben Carson Is the GOP’s New Gaffe Machine

Julie Driscoll: Ben Carson has proven that the new savior of the GOP is kinda like the old savior of the GOP – bigoted, offensive, with a background of violence toward others, and drowning in his own gaffes.

Taxpayers Should Stop Subsidizing Wal-Mart

Tina Dupuy: Bachmann and the tea party are like a 30-year-old who lives comfortably in the family home while railing against parental tyranny and bemoaning the mediocrity of the meals his mother cooks.

Mitt, I Owe You an Apology

Tina Dupuy: [dc]P[/dc]resumptive nominee Mitt Romney is seemingly fixated on apologies. He’s obsessed with apologies like Bristol Palin is obsessed with teen abstinence

Why Santorum Won’t Fade

John Peeler: The Republican primary electorate is predominantly reactionary, far-right-wing, on both economic and social issues, so it should not be so surprising that they are warming to Santorum.

I’m a Liberal, but I Won’t Condemn the Wars

Julie Driscoll: I promised my son that I would never protest or condemn or belittle this war, that I would never dishonor his service by reducing it to foolishness.

What Michele Bachmann’s Mount Rushmore Picks Reveal

Ivan Eland: Analyzing whom a candidate would add to Mount Rushmore, instead of if they can remember a specific fact when under pressure, might just provide some sort of window on what policies a candidate might pursue if successful.

The Rise of the Regressive Right and the Reawakening of America

Robert Reich: Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann and the other tribunes of today’s Republican right aren’t really conservatives. Their goal isn’t to conservative what we have. It’s to take us backwards.

Michael Sigman: With Bachmann having no chance to win the nomination, it’s shaping up as a race to the bottom between Romney and Perry, fantasies of a deus ex machina notwithstanding.

Michele Bachmann: A Serious Candidate?

bachmann-wide

Stanley Kutler: Bachmann is so obviously an off-the-wall politician, one deservedly dismissed as a fringe candidate. But ironically, the liberal media have propelled her rise from well-deserved mediocrity to suddenly a “serious” candidate

John Wayne Gacy

Tom Degan: The very fact that poor old Mitt is neck-and-neck with Bachmann in the opinion polls tells me that there is some semblance of sanity left in that disgusting party.

Tom Degan: Michele Bachmann maintains that the Founding Fathers ended slavery, huh? She is off by years. Four score and seven years, to be exact. She also pegged John Quincy Adams as one of “the very founders that wrote those documents.” He must have been quite the prodigy. When the Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, 8 year old John Quincy Adams was one week shy of his ninth birthday!

We Create Our Own Reality

Berry Craig: Tea Party types are cool with Bachmann because she loves what they love — guns and the Good Lord, for instance. And she disdains what they disdain — immigrants, gay people and the “Kenyan” “Muslim Marxist” in the White House whose “plan” is “white slavery” come to mind.

Obama’s Progressive Enablers

Randy Shaw: It’s painful to remember that Barack Obama ran against Hillary Clinton by arguing that the Clinton presidency had not been as transformative as Ronald Reagan’s, and that he would go beyond small reforms to bring Change We Can Believe In.
