Ann Coulter: I Want To Drown Libertarians

“The biggest current danger for Republicans is that idiots will vote for Libertarian candidates in do-or-die Senate elections, including Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina and Colorado. Democratic candidates don’t have to put up with this crap — they’re even trying to dump the official Democrat in Kansas to give the stealth Democrat a better shot. When we’re all dying from lack …

Grover Norquist Went To Burning Man

“Some self-professed ‘progressives’ whined at the thought of my attending what they believed was a ghetto for liberal hippies. Yes, there was a gentleman who skateboarded without elbow or kneepads – or any knickers whatsover. Yes, I rode in cars dressed-up as cats, bees and spiders; I watched trucks carrying pirate ships and 30 dancers. I drank absinthe. But anyone …

Ron Paul Backs Bradley Manning

The screaming across Teabagistan this morning is really something.  And the senior Paul’s position is miles away from his son’s. “There do have to be laws to protect some secrets. I think if you’ve got the, you know, the plans on how to make a nuclear bomb that is a state secret. If you give that to the enemy, that …

Brian Brown: We’re Libertarians

“There is really one or two outcomes that’s going to happen in this: either we’re going to have the state embrace this new definition of marriage and use the power of the state to punish, repress and marginalize those of us that know that marriage is the union of a man and a woman, or we’re going to have the …

Glenn Beck: Get Me Back On Cable

Since Glenn Beck left Fox News to launch his web-only television show, he has devolved even further (if that’s possible) into crackpot fringe conspiracy theory-laden batshittery.  And today he launched a campaign to force cable providers to pick up his web channel.  Think Progress weighs in: Beck started promoting GetTheBlaze.com on Monday, asking fans to demonstrate to their television provider …

Libertarian Students Boo Ann Coulter

Ron Paul Delivers Farewell Speech

Rep. Ron Paul, as you probably know, did not run again for his House seat this year in order to pursue the presidency.

Birther Of The Day – Wayne Root

“I am President Obama’s classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. I am also one of the most accurate Vegas odds makers and prognosticators. Accurate enough that I was awarded my own star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars. And I smell something rotten in Denmark. Obama has a big skeleton in his closet. It’s his college records. Call …

Headline Of The Day

Politicker reports that the Ron Paul campaign is complaining that the media only focuses on his fringe supporters. And they don’t even do that about gay people anymore. “Shirtless hunks in leather tutus and motorcycling ‘Dykes on Bikes’ are no longer the point of the gay-rights spear,” Mr. Westover wrote. “It’s the gay lawyer/gay accountant, lesbian legislator/lesbian physician–same-sex couples with …
