Who would believe the outlandish whale-sized whoppers the Ol’ Pussy Grabber is trying to peddle as alternative narratives to his collusion with Russia? Well, everyone. The explanation of why such god awful lies are effective in blunting public opinion.
It’s an open secret that the modern Repube party is the home of angry white identity politics, but no where is that clearer than in this quote from an angry white guy explaining why he’ll continue to roll coal.
Everyday seems to arrive with a new accusation of sexual assault against some prominent man somewhere. How should we respond? Another hashtag? What happens after the news fades from our immediate awareness? What have we really accomplished? Five cartoonists address the issue…
Powerful men are committing sexual assault! But, powerful men is a red herring. It’s all men. And, believe it or not, Poppy Bush proves why it is all men.
Just as the Constitutional Convention closed in 1787, Dr. James McHenry recorded this anecdote: Franklin was walking down the street outside of Independence Hall, when a woman asked him whether our new government would be a monarchy or a republic. A republic. If you can keep it, was […]
So many powerful men in industries are being accused of sexual assault, harassment, and impropriety AND they are suffering consequences because of it. Not only does this article document the scope of the accusations this year, it discusses the reasons it seems to be happening so much more frequently.
Didn’t vote for Clinton, so you pissed away Obama’s last Supreme Court nomination. Now the Pussy Grabber could be looking at one or even two more nominations sealing a conservative majority on the Court for a generation. We could lose every gain we’ve made during the past 60 years. Didn’t vote for Clinton. Are you happy now?
A republic, if you can keep it. As it turns out old Ben Franklin was right. We aren’t able to keep our republic. We are increasingly authoritarian. A segment of the electorate likes and another is indifferent leaving us vulnerable to the Russians hacking our elections.
Oh look at me! I did sumpthin! I made a liberal snowflake cry on the internet! They’re all butt hurt now. I did sumpthin. I helped. The false sense of accomplishment and understanding that trolling the internet gives us will kill us. Our government and way of life are imperiled and we’re exchanging memes on the fucking internet with trolls.
The Repubes have factored into their tax cuts for the wealthy the wrecked economy every 8 years, the Dem president that will fix it. It maximizes the upward transfer of wealth from the middle class to the wealthy while keeping the stooges just satisfied enough to keep reelecting them.
Compare the ways Lincoln, Obama, and the Ol’ Pussy Grabber have consoled the families of the nation’s fallen. There is no clearer example of how much the Ol’ Pussy Grabber has degraded our democracy than this.
We are truly the United Fucking States of Fucking Stupid and deserve every misery the Repubes can inflict on us if 46% believe the news is fake.

? In light of the current #meToo movement (and previously #yesallwomen), many amazing friends and survivors have reminded me that, while pointing out how shamefully prevalent sexism, sexual harassment, and sexual assault are, is terribly important, maybe survivors shouldn’t feel obligated to…
#MeToo is simply the start of a long over due processes to help men comprehend (a) the scope of the problem (b) how severely harmed women are (c) the number of men offending (d) that he has probably offended in his life and (e) men need to act to stop the epidemic.
America is unique in its gun violence. Could we be encouraging gun violence without even realizing? Social Learning Theory says we are teaching each other to be violent with guns.
Harvey Weinstein is another celebrity rapist allowed to abuse women for a substantial period of time. But, it really is ALL MEN. Try these three thought experiments about rape culture, and tell me what you think.
When it was President Obama, the nation’s first black president, the Repubes worried, fretted, and sucked their teethes all the time about how his greasy fried chicken eaten fingers would stain the fine brocade of the couches in the First Mansion and his watermelon rinds would be attracting vermin and his singing of old negro spirituals while pleasant would confirm that we had a lowly shucking and jiving president that couldn’t maintain the office with the respect it so richly deserved. What happened?
The Ol’ Pussy Grabber has been stamping his wee little feet over North Korea and shrilly screaming his impotence into the void of Twitter. It is disappointing to see the media chase down these rabbit holes instead of press him on the real story: Mueller’s probe into his scandal ridden administration.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then maybe we’ve gotten the Ol’ Pussy Grabber all wrong. Maybe he wasn’t humiliating, shaming, and mocking, maybe he was flattering, respecting, and imitating. His latest target, Puerto Rico because kick ’em while they’re down is his motto, right?
Word on the street alleges that Harvey Weinstein’s lawyers paid District Attorney for Manhattan, Cy Vance, $10,000 to ignore sexual harassment chargers. If true, Vance is bought and sold like the cheap hookers that Weinstein allegedly bought and sold.
