After His First Article, FiveThirtyEight Apologizes for Controversial Climate Science Writer

Breitbart Clown John Nolte Runs With (Another) Bogus Story

They're such idiots. Really. I know that's not a very polished way to start a post, but seriously, folks. A few days ago Breitbart "News" ace journalist John Nolte went big at "BIG JOURNALISM" with a BREAKING NEWS BOMBSHELL that the White House press corps is feeding their questions to press...

Rep. Steve Pearce (R-NM) Dumps Loony Right Wing Hate-Blogger After Outcry

Donald Trump: Birther, Anti-Vaxxer

Are you surprised to find out that right wing Birther Donald Trump is also opposed to vaccinations? If I were President I would push for proper vaccinations but would not allow one time massive shots that a small child cannot take - AUTISM. -- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 27, 2014...

Heritage Foundation Gives "I Am a Reactionary" Award to Hobby Lobby

See, this is why we call the US conservative movement "reactionary," as the Heritage Foundation gives an award to the owners of Hobby Lobby, solely because they're pushing a deceptive redefinition of "religious freedom" (as "freedom to discriminate against women and gays") into the mainstream: Heritage's Salvatori Prize Goes to...

Definitely the Dumbest Right Wing Rant of the Week: Todd Starnes on "Hispanic Cheese"

Fox News loon Todd Starnes is one of those right wingers so deranged that all you can do is laugh when he pens one of these incredibly stupid "opinion" pieces: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to a Ham Sandwich. Starnes is so consumed by his paranoid persecution fantasies, he...

NM GOP Rep. Steve Pearce Hires Wingnut Hate-Blogger "PolitixFireball" as Press Secretary

If you've ever expressed a liberal political opinion on Twitter, you've seen them -- the rabid right wingers who feverishly tweet insults and long-debunked talking points at you, with no attempt at all to really debate anything. The worst ones are blatantly racist, homophobic, anti-Muslim religious fanatics whose online lives...

The House GOP Looks To Gut Antiquities Act

Pat Robertson Fondly Recalls the Days When Gays Were Stoned to Death

YouTube Pat Robertson is a one-man right wing religious rebranding effort, and today on the 700 Club he helpfully explained to those deluded souls who say Jesus would have been charitable toward gays that no, he wouldn't have, because the gays were all stoned to death in Jesus' time. So there wouldn't...

Sarah Palin Goes All in on the GOP Castration Meme

As noted yesterday, the Iowa GOP now has a candidate running on a platform of proud hog castration, and today the dimmest bulb in the right wing cupboard went all in on this highly appealing testicle-chopping meme, bringing her own barnyard perspective to the issue. "If Nebraska's Deb Fischer can...

Party of Fiscal Responsibility Watch: The GOP's Phony Benghazi Probes Have Cost Millions

The Pentagon says the Republican Party's crazy obsession with the fraudulent Benghazi non-scandal and their non-stop "investigations" have cost millions of dollars and thousands of hours of personnel time.

Is Privatizing Metadata Collection Really a Good Idea?

Bob Cesca points out some of the problems in President Obama's proposal to privatize the NSA's metadata collection program: First of all, corporations have a terrible track record when it comes to securing storing customer data. I'm old enough to remember how hackers -- or as Greenwald calls them: activists...

Iowa GOP Senate Candidate Runs on a Platform of Proud Hog Castration

YouTube This is Joni Ernst. She is one of the Tea Party Republicans running for the Iowa Senate seat to replace retiring Democrat Tom Harkin. She grew up castrating hogs. Judging from the relish with which she tells the tale, it looks like she enjoyed it quite a bit. This may not...

Tech Note: A Regular Expression to Convert Hashtags and Twitter Names to Links

Image via Shutterstock Once in a while I come up with a bit of code I think might be useful to others, and here's the latest example: a regular expression that parses a string of text looking for Twitter hashtags (preceded with '#') or usernames (preceded with '@'), and replaces them...
