Nah. Can’t be! Wingnuts and climate change deniers completely and totally full of bat guano? You don’t say!

An independent report into the leak of hundreds of e-mails from one of the world’s leading climate research centers has largely vindicated the scientists involved, saying they acted honestly and that their research was reliable.

There really never was a story here but today’s news outlets are too damned lazy to figure that out before getting on the sensationalism train. They cater to lunatics like Beck and Limbaugh like kids catching candy at a parade. Toss some bullshit out there […]

Politico gives you today’s Democratic favorite news story of the day: Republicans suddenly afraid that Orly Taitz might be on their statewide ticket in the fall.

“It’d be a disaster for the Republican party,” says James Lacy, a conservative GOP operative in the state. “Can you imagine if [gubernatorial candidate] Meg Whitman and [candidate for Lt. Gov.] Abel Maldonado — both of whom might have a chance to win in November — had to run with Orly Taitz as secretary of state, who would make her cockamamie issues about Obama’s birth certificate problems at the forefront of her […]

Sometimes, when you browse the Google that John Kasich invented while ending special interests influence in Washington forever, you come across a headline like this that if you’re like me gets your imagination running wild with possibilities  Like how exactly does one disrupt mating?  By patrolling Moth Makeout Point?  Calling them randomly?

But despite dreaming up six impossible things by breakfast, I never imagined that Ohio would fight a gypsy moth infestation with a chemical that turns the male moths gay, which sounds like a weird plot line from a political satire […]

Having solved every other problem in Ohio, the Ohio Senate found itself apparently with time to spare, so they decided that they needed to end the non-existent practice of creating human-animal hybrids.

Then they went to Ohio Senate-Lobbyist Summer camp which Senate President Bill Harris is all excited about making a leather wallet and Senate Majority Floor Leader totally expects to kiss his first girl.

What the hell am I supposed to do with an entire stable of centaurs that I was raising to race once slot machines were permitted at horse racing tracks leading to […]

It doesn’t take a Magic 8 Ball? to answer this one. They’re either stupendous idiots or deliberately misleading. They think this guy is our governor:

Unfortunately, Interior chief of staff Ted Strickland wasn?t in the warm waters of the Gulf, but in the Grand Canyon on what the White House called a business-related trip.

Odd. Jake Tapper (who Ed Morrissey quotes) calls the above dude “Tom Strickland”. Because that’s his name. This is Ted Strickland, our Governor and recent guest on our BTR PlunderChat:

See why blogging gets a bad name? When you […]

David Krikorian does an interview with Huffington Post which basically tracks verbatim Geoffrey Sea’s posts on DailyKos, literally down to the ridiculous corporate conspiracy that Olbermann went after Krikorian because he’s sponsored by Oil of Olay because Chili used to do marketing for them.

Clermont County David Lane mocks Krikorian and Geoffrey Sea’s conspiracy theory.

You know, it’s really hard to diffuse a racial attack of your primary opponent, when your campaign blogger, who apparently you parrot in interviews, attacks your opponent […]

Do you remember back in school when a kid would get in trouble? What’s the first thing the would do?

Yes. Point at some other kid and say something along the lines of “Well, Bobby did it too!”

Classic juvenile deflection.

Not surprising to see the wingnut radicals on talk radio and Internet media outlets doing the same thing with the recent gulf coast oil spill disaster. “Obama’s Katrina!,” they yell. “What’s taking the administration so long to respond?” they query.

It’s enlightening, really. Ignoring the obvious irony of conservatives calling for a faster government response to […]

So, remember just a few days ago we were talking about how bank lobbyist Steve Stivers told a 9/12/Tea Party group that he supported repealing the 17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that calls for the direct election of U.S. Senators?

Well, Stivers is now claiming to the Columbus Dispatch, he apparently is just too incompetent to check the right box, even with a campaign office of seasoned hired Republican campaign operatives helping him in what is supposed to be one of the most important races for the Republicans nationally this year.? This, of course, makes him a […]

That’s what Steve Stivers checked on a recent candidate questionnaire by the the Tea Party.

Congresswoman Mary Jo Kilroy’s campaign has a petition defending the right of Ohioans to directly elect their U.S. Senators.

Stivers also proposes getting rid of the U.S. Department of the Interior, Housing, Agriculture, Education, Housing and Urban Development, Transportation, Veterans Affairs, and Energy.

Stivers also indicated that he would support replacing the income tax with a sales tax, support the elimination of automatic withholding of taxes, eliminate the ability of family members to petition the government to allow the legal […]

Only a few weeks after sending out a statewide Republican ballot promoting Jon Husted and Yost’s “Tea Party values,” the ORP sent YET ANOTHER statewide Republican sample ballot mailer, this time with no Tea Party references.

Of course, they still label Husted with the word “conservative” like Frank Lutz with ideological Tourette’s Syndrome.

Only two weeks left to the GOP primary, and yet despite a national Tea Part protest, the Ohio GOP is in open war with the Tea Party, not a single ORP-endorsed candidate spoke at any of the large Tea Party rallies in Ohio, and John Kasich, the […]
