When I heard this on the road yesterday, I thought my ears decieved me, but they didn’t: RUSH: We’re sitting here and since everybody is buzzing in Vietnam about Chelsea Clinton’s wedding, we are, too. We’re buzzing about Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. We’re wondering if there is a Lewinsky in Chelsea’s husband’s future. Greetings, and welcome […]

Church Members Sue When Doomsday Fails To Arrive

by @ Wednesday, July 7th, 2010. Filed under Dumbasses, Religion

Somehow, I think that stupidity will be a complete defense to this claim of fraud: One of two civil claims brought against religious group Agape Ministries may be settled out of court, a lawyer has told the Adelaide District Court. One of the plaintiffs cannot be named because of a temporary suppression order. That plaintiff […]

Texas Republicans Very Obsessed With The Gays

by @ Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010. Filed under Dumbasses, Political Parties, Politics, Republicans

Apparently, the biggest problems facing Texas involve Adam and Steve: Texas Republicans are a conservative lot. Still, it’s difficult to imagine mainstream GOP voters demanding their neighbors be jailed for engaging in a little hanky-panky behind closed doors. Nevertheless, the state’s Republican party has voted on a platform [PDF link] by which their candidates will […]

by @ Friday, June 18th, 2010. Filed under Dumbasses

This is just stupid: Jana Jacobson said she was banned from a local church softball league for being gay, reports The Commercial Appeal in Memphis. Jacobson says the Bellevue Baptist Church disqualified her team from competing in their adult women’s softball league because of what they called her “deviant” lifestyle. The coach registered, paid the […]

Nikki Haley Targeted By Despicable Religious Bigotry

I noted before the South Carolina primary that one Republican had called her a “raghead” because of her Sikh heritage.

Instead of, you know, actually not doing it: Former Rep. Mark Souder (R-Ind.) frequently “prayed” and “sang hymns with emotion and tears” over the multi-year affair that ended his congressional career last month. Since admitting to an affair with a longtime staffer, the devout Christian and socially conservative Souder has been in frequent e-mail contact […]
