Shameful: Roger Ebert uses Sally Ride's death to bash Mitt Romney

Following in the muddy footsteps of Salon’s Glenn Greenwald, movie critic and leftist tool Roger Ebert is politicizing the life and death of astronaut Sally Ride, who passed away yesterday at 61.

Photoshoppers have fun with President Obama’s ‘Promise Zones’

Thursday morning, President Obama announced the creation of five “Promise Zones,” in which the federal government “will partner in helping local leaders develop policies that improve education, protect the most vulnerable, and encourage the entrepreneurial spirit.” One thing the president’s speech did encourage was the creative spirit. The US is a broken promise zone because of […]

Wife of Ft. Hood victim says Defense Department issued gag order to victims’ families

Stories about the victims of the Ft. Hood massacre being denied combat veteran benefits are not new.

Sen. Chuck Grassley says tradition of public Nativity scenes should stay

Sen. Chuck Grassley’s tweets are alternately amusing and infuriating to his followers.

Today, Grassley tweeted simply that public Nativity scenes are a longstanding tradition that deserves to continue. @chuckgrassley god is […]

Robert Reich not concerned about height of debt ceiling, says 'O' should ignore

Students in former labor secretary Robert Reich’s classroom must not speak up very much; what else drives him to Twitter to be schooled so often? Piers “Musket” Morgan knows he can always turn to social media when he needs to brush up on the U.S. Constitution, so why not Reich? Interesting selective use of the […]

Jason Alexander: I suspect that shifty Mormon Romney is stiffing his church

The Hollywood Left’s bigoted “Mormons are bad” line of attack continues to backfire. So actor Jason Alexander has proposed a new theory for the “reality-based” Left to run with: Mitt Romney is a bad Mormon. Oh, and if the Mormons find out Romney’s squirreling away his cash? “Damn Dog, it’s on!” Not a peep from Alexander […]

Citizens exercise their freedom of speech, blast anti-American, anti-Christian UPenn prof Anthea Butler

As Twitchy reported this morning, University of Pennsylvania professor Anthea Butler embarked on a mind-bogglingly idiotic tirade in which she blamed the director of an anti-Islam film for yesterday’s atrocities in Egypt and Libya.

Levine dutifully added his bigoted voice to Hollywood’s seething […]

As Twitchy reported yesterday, Samuel Cook III, a coordinator for Obama for America, Louisiana, hopped aboard the anti-Mormon bigotry train. He then bravely ran away by deleting his tweet. But, of course, bigots can’t ever resist continuing to spew their garbage. Mr. Cook also bravely ran away from his role as an Obama for America coordinator and has now changed his Twitter bio to reference “Republicans for Obama.” But, what’s this? Lookie here:

Obama for America coordinator takes anti-Mormon swipe at Romney's Armstrong tribute

The passing of American hero Neil Armstrong would seem to be the sort of event that would transcend politics.

Along with several others, Samuel Cook III, a coordinator for Obama for America – Louisiana, decided to take […]

Following campaign joke, opponents brand Mitt Romney with #Birther label

After Mitt Romney offered up a joke about his birth certificate this morning at a campaign event in Michigan, opponents seemed split on just how much outrage they could realistically feign.
