The good thing is aside from the Freepers, Cruz is hated by just about every other Republican/conservative. I'm not making any predictions but I suspect he has less a chance of making it to the Presidency than Sarah Palin. .

The Duck Dynast is certainly a sick twist. It's remarkable just how much time and energy Christianists and other modern conservatives expend fantasizing about the most vile things imaginable. It says a lot about them. . Continue reading

But Charlie's right: The Republican party is a mechanism for the subversion of the federal republic. It doesn't matter if the party's stars are doing it to please The Base, or because they don't know any better, or because they... Continue reading

Regardless, I want to see Clinton and Bush knocked out before it's general election time...just say no to dynasties. .
