What God Wants

Hucklebuck, one of the Republican stars in the 2008 election, is oozing his way back into the spotlight as a potential candidate in 2016. He's a living reminder that the most dangerous people on earth are the ones who claim they have a mandate to perform God's will.

Mitch Twitch

Senator Mitch McConnell alleges that the American economy began to improve once it became clear that Republicans would control both the House and Senate after the 2014 election. He's wrong about that, but it might explain the improvement in Obama's job approval rating.

Picking at scabs

In the recent midterm elections, the voter turnout nationally has been estimated at just under 30 percent. Assuming winning Republican candidates averaged about 55 percent of the vote, roughly 16 percent of eligible voters actually cast  ballots in favor of a Republican. Right-wing nose pickers conclude that this represents a massive transformation of the American electorate in favor of radical tea party conservatism, when all it actually suggests is that 84 percent of American voters prefer a party other than the GOP or don't care much one way or the other.

If you want to see something funny, tell a cranky old white conservative that he doesn't really have a sweeping mandate and watch his reaction.
