The Monster Squad

Earlier this year, Republican strategist Steve Schmidt referred to the CPAC convention as “the Star Wars bar scene of the conservative movement.” If CPAC is the Star Wars cantina, this weekend’s Values Voter Summit may just be the Death Star.

Die Harder

The Republican Party finally accomplished something!  Sure, it may not have been the passing of a new jobs bill or funding for our nation’s crumbling infrastructure, but not every Republican-controlled House can say they shut down the government!

Waterworld

It’s disappointing that Marco Rubio’s water bottle grab is the most memorable moment from his GOP response to the President’s State of the Union Address, because his rebuttal was an excellent showcase of how out of touch with reality the Republican Party still is.

Face/Off

The dust is clearing from the first 2012 presidential debate, which saw Romney playdough himself into a new champion for the poor.  In the meantime, President Obama was clearly still reeling from this season’s finale of Breaking Bad.

Rubiocop: The Future of Conservative Enforcement

His unofficial victory was welcomed into such open arms as Florida Senator (and potential running mate) Marco Rubio who said: “There are a lot of other people out there that some of us wish had run for president, but they didn’t,” he continued “I think Mitt Romney would be a fine president, and he’d be way better than the guy who’s there right now.” Rubio sounds like the type of person that would recommend a restaurant to you simply because he never got food poisoning there.
