On today of all days? @HealthCareTara pimps Vox graphic [screenshot]


Is it ever really a good day to promote Vox’s work? No. But this day is a particularly bad one. Too bad Tara McGuinness didn’t think of that:

@HealthCareTara Vox RT

Do yourself a favor, cupcake, and next time, save yourself the added embarrassment and check Twitchy first.



Once, twice, three times a screwup? This Vox-er is having a really bad day [screenshots]; Updated

Janice Dean’s ‘Throwback Thursday’ photo is awesome


Indeed. Fox News’ Janice Dean scored with her #ThrowbackThursday photo. Take a gander:


Awe. Some. Good old Aqua Net! A staple of the ’80s.



The verdict from Fox Business Network’s Cheryl Casone?

Planned Parenthood touts ‘free’ contraception; Ignores skyrocketing premiums


Not only does somebody have to pay, but thanks to Obamacare, how much more expensive will insurance premiums be in order to get this “free” benefit?


Thanks to skyrocketing premiums, many women will still see a net financial loss for the benefit Planned Parenthood maddeningly pretends is “free.”

Ed Henry destroys Obama is not good at ‘political theater’ claim with one point



As Twitchy reported, Obama made the enraging claim that the reason he should not have golfed after his presser on the beheading of James Foley was due to “optics.” That was his lesson learned: He’s just not mindful enough of the “theater of politics,” you see.

WaPo swiftly tried to run to the president’s aide. Lapdogs gotta be lapdogs:






Ah, the days of yore! Speaking of days of yore, Fox News’ Ed Henry crushed the absurd claim with one easy reminder:



A good exit point, though:


Yep. Everything everywhere ever is all about him.

Michael Moore ‘wowed’ by theory about US response to 9/11 attacks


The U.S. response to the murder or thousands of people on American soil should have been to do nothing and the world would have been better off? Interesting.

It even seems to have intrigued Michael Moore, so you know it’s nutty:

Wow. RT @tinyrevolution The U.S. would be far far better off today if, in response to 9/11, we'd done literally nothing.

David Sirota falls for fake congressman from nonexistent district


Yes, @RepStevenSmith is a parody account, and yet people continue to fall for it. Tonight’s victim? David Sirota.


No, a GOP congressman didn’t refer to President Obama as “George W. Bush in blackface.” Once again, “Rep. Steven Smith” is a parody account.

Lizz Winstead taken in by nonexistent Rep. Steven Smith


Actually, no. Rep. Steven Smith isn’t an elected official, nor does the 15th congressional district he claims to represent exist. The Twitter account has managed to fool quite a few, including “Daily Show” co-creator Lizz Winstead. How could she not respond to this reply?






The tweet calling “Rep. Steven Smith” an elected official is gone, but not forgotten. Doesn’t Ms. Winstead know by now that Twitchy is forever?

Kevin Drum on Bergdahl concerns: GOP ‘outraged’ over ‘tiny prisoner exchange’


As Twitchy reported, a recent Washington Post headline suggested that concern over the legality of the exchange of five Taliban leaders for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is a “Republican” thing (even while acknowledging in the article that the government’s actions were illegal).

This morning, Mother Jones’ Kevin Drum took that stupidity and ran with it:


According to him:

Republicans these days are so hellbent on finding reasons to be outraged over everything President Obama does, there’s no longer any way to tell whether their outrage over any specific incident is real or manufactured. And in this case, it’s probably not worth trying to find out.

In other words, if “Republicans” are worried about it, it’s nothing worth worrying about. Even if it was against the law.


Drum says it’s “just random partisan fulminating”:


And the swap itself? Just “a tiny prisoner exchange.”


It just so happens that in that “tiny” exchange, five dangerous men were released:




CNN’s Jake Tapper reports that soldiers in Bergdahl’s platoon claim that he was not a prisoner of war, but rather a deserter who walked off while on guard duty. At least six soldiers were killed in efforts to find him.


Does Drum dismiss those men as petty “Republicans,” too?




Many questions about Bergdahl remain, but for now, at this much is certain:
