Mitt Romney Brings Us History’s First Campaign About Nothing

The Republicans’ Alternate Universe

If only Carl Sagan had lived long enough to see this: living, breathing evidence of an alternate universe.

The Weekend Onionism: For Big Oil “What obstacles are there to you making more money?”

Check out this quote from Senator Rand Paul (Weirdo, Ky) during Senate debate to end the corporate welfare tax largesse given by American taxpayers to the most profitable corporations in the history of the world.  When it comes to big oil, Rand Paul doesn’t just think they deserve their tax breaks, but we should be looking for other ways to make them even richer!  – Read the full article
