Because They’re Just That Dumb

Do RWNJs get dumber on the phone?  Check out these polling stats from ThinkProgress (with my emphasis): Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), was born in Calgary, Alberta in Canada in 1970, according to the birth certificate he released two years ago. But a Public Policy Polling poll released on Monday found that 40 percent of Republican voters falsely believe Cruz was born in the United States — compared to just 29 percent who believe the same of Hawaiian-born Barack Obama. – Read the full article

Isn’t Denali About “States’ Rights”?

Republicans would have you believe that President Obama woke up the other morning and, wondering what he could do to piss them off that day, decided to rename Mt. McKinley. Now, their useful idiots all across America will be railing against yet another thing they know nothing about. – Read the full article

Another Hole in Rafael Cruz’s Bio

Here at ATD we’ve documented the absurdity of “Pastor” Rafael Cruz’s embellished bio. Now a new fact has come to light that contradicts his slaving away as a dishwasher to put himself through college narrative.
