CPAC Is Wack: 9 Things That Made Us Go “Huh”?

This weekend was the Conservative Political Action Conference, an uber-conservative political event where all kinds of crazy shit goes down each year. It was sad because some of these people are absolutely batcrackers crazers. Like, my dad is a Fox News-loving, Bush-voting Republican and he is embarrassed by these people. But at the same time…

Rachel Maddow Has Some Advice For Republicans On How To Talk About Rape

Did you know that House Republicans go on a retreat every year? (I imagine Democrats do the same, by the way.) Do they serve tea sandwiches and practice trust falls? Who knows. On last night’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” Maddow discussed one of the scheduled retreat activities we do know about (which took place between between archery…

“Girls” Spoiler: Donald Glover’s Role Explained

We were simultaneously madly jealous/intrigued when paparazzi snaps showed Lena Dunham filming scenes of “Girls” with Donald Glover. Season two isn’t back until next week but a lil’ spoiler (after the jump!) at The Hollywood Reporter has some deets on what he’s doing with Hot-Mess Hannah Horvath.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal Calls For Birth Control Over-The-Counter

Republican Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal wrote a piece in the Wall Street Journal yesterday, calling for birth control to be made available over-the-counter for women over age 18. He argues that if contraception was available over-the-counter, employers who object to covering BC in their health insurance plans would back off.

That idea makes sense.

7 Things I Am Qualified To Explain To Middle-Aged Republican Men

It seems like every day another Republican politician is bloviating about the definition of rape as if he, a middle-aged man, is the true authority on the subject. As Tina Fey said so perfectly in her speech at the Center for Reproductive Rights, “If I have to listen to one more grey-faced man with a $2…

G.O.B. Tampons: Because The Republican Party Knows Your Body

G.O.B. tampons: they’re feminine hygiene products by the people who know a woman’s body best — old Republican men! With flaps and wings and widgets and hooziwhatsits for all your confusing lady parts, a woman could not have invented it better herself. (No, seriously, she couldn’t have: she’s not allowed.)

Clint Eastwood Defends His Support For Gay Marriage On “Ellen”

Throwing his feet up on the coffee table isn’t the only thing Clint Eastwood is totally relaxed about. During his interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Eastwood shared his views on gay marriage and his libertarian beliefs: “Socially, [they believe to] leave everyone alone, but [they] believe in fiscal responsibility and government staying out of your life.” DeGenere…

Is Nicki Minaj A Republican And Voting For Mitt Romney?

Nicki Minaj is supposedly a Republican voting for Mitt Romney (just for financial reasons, though). In a new Lil Wayne mixtape, Nicki raps “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney / you lazy bitches is fucking up the economy.” Didn’t see that one coming.

Meghan McCain Saw A Therapist Because Everyone Was Trashing Her Body

“I don’t even feel like it was a mistake anymore. I don’t really believe in the concept of mistakes.

The Most Ill-Conceived Pro-Rick Santorum Ad Ever

Okay, you’ve heard about how Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s name has also been associated with “the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex,” right? (Thank you, Dan Savage). So why, why, why would supposed Rick Santorum supporters create an ad in which mud — suspiciously resembling the…

Republican Woman Report Better Sex, But Democrats Have More Of It

Even though some conservatives only believe in sex for procreation, that doesn’t stop 53 percent of self-identified Republican women from reaching “the big O” when they get it on.

Democrat Vs. Republican Sex Scandal Showdown: Which Party Has The Worst Scandals?

It’s been a busy few weeks for political sex scandals. First we found out that Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a love child—well, possibly two—more than 10 years ago without wife Maria Shriver’s knowledge. And then came Weinergate, in which Democrat Anthony Weiner ‘fessed up to sexting with six women, even sending one of them a…

Sorry, Ladies, The Paycheck Fairness Act Is Dunzo

Sorry, ladies, but the Paycheck Fairness Act is no more. Senate Republicans filibustered the bill and Senate Democrats fell two votes short of the 60 needed to put it to an up-or-down vote.

Generally speaking, the Paycheck Fairness Act, which passed in the House of Representatives in 2009, would have made it easier…

Sarah Palin’s political action committee has released a dare-I-say touching web video, called “Mama Grizzlies,” about women in the Republican Party.

So, what do we think?

Republican Employee Fired Over L.A. Bondage Club Outing

Far be it for us to criticize an outing to a “risque” bondage nightclub as a getting-to-know-you exercise. But the Republican National Committee is not having it. Today, the RNC canned Allison Meyers, director of the group’s “Young Eagles” program, after news of a scandal broke yesterday that Meyer had approved the reimbursement of receipt…
