Dick Cheney and Liz Cheney Disagree About Sarah Palin's Greatness

Mitt Romney Hearts Israeli Socialism

Following the British leg of his foreign trip in which he did everything to annoy the British except ask if the scones came from a local 7-11, many wondered how we he would manage to taunt the Israelis.

Mitt Romney's NAACP Speech a Huge Success in Alternate Reality

Using what I can only assume are his powers as a 9th-level "wazzock," Mitt Romney has previously traversed the fourth dimension to retire from Bain Capital prior to when he retired from Bain Capital and insult the United Kingdom just a little bit more. Now we're seeing him use his amazing time-traveling powers to revisit [...]

Antonin Scalia: Watching the Supreme Court Will Make You Dumber
