I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

     Clueless Fox News contributor Stacey Dash says the GOP is for gay marriage.

I’m not sure if this is willful ignorance so Stacey doesn’t have to fully own up to the fact that she supports a party that is pro-bigotry and discrimination or if this is just the regular kind of ignorance where Stacey just doesn’t know what the hell she’s talking about.

     Darrin Gayles is now the first gay Black man confirmed to the federal bench.

Another “first” for our country (in 2014, lest you forget that we are still having “firsts” in 2014), the US Senate unanimously voted Judge Darrin Gayles to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.  Say what you want about Obama, but one thing you can’t take from him is is commitment to diversity and the lasting impact his nominees will have long after he’s left office.

     Friendly reminder that Republicans in Texahoma really hate gay people.

I’m a big fan of state portmanteaus.  Missibama is probably the one I use the most.  ”Flyover states” offends too many Midwesterners and that hatemail is tiresome, so I’ve been referring to that pancake land as Kanssouribraskahomakota.  Texahoma is a new one, but I’m sure it’ll make future appearances given that the politics of Texas and Oklahoma are so similar.

For example, let me just take a quick moment to go over what these three bigots had to say about us this past week:

     Ted Cruz renounced his Canadian citizenship to run for President…but can he?

Earlier this week, Canada’s loss became…well, our loss as well really when Ted Cruz formally renounced his dual citizenship.  No longer a Canadian citizen, Ted Cruz now solely belongs to the United States, because he wants to be President.  He hasn’t formally said that’s the reason, but we can read the writing on the wall.  Cruz doesn’t want any citizenship issues causing problems for him should he officially declare his intention to seek the Republican nomination in 2016.

So, the matter is settled right?  Not quite.  Without a Supreme Court ruling or an amendment to the Constitution to clarify “natural-born citizen,” it’s still not 100% clear whether or not Cruz is eligible for the Presidency.  Much clearer though is the hypocrisy of the GOP who aren’t even paying attention to this issue at all.

     How many ways is Eric Cantor completely shamefaced right now?

::in my breathiest Toni Braxton voice::

How……ma….ny ways…..you look….a fooooooool?
Let me count the waaaays….

This is the first time a House Majority leader has lost a reelection since 1899.  Nevermind the fact that the dude who beat Cantor is an economics professor who doesn’t even understand productivity and the minimum wage.  I am so second-hand embarrassed today.  This is worse than watching American Idol auditions, but I can’t change the channel.

     Obama’s “biggest frustration” is our inability to act on gun violence.

"My biggest frustration so far is the fact that this society has not been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people who can do just unbelievable damage. We’re the only society — we’re the only developed country on Earth where this happens, and it happens now once a week, and it’s a one day story. There’s no place else like this."


Tell me more, Barack.  Please.  Tell me how you really feel because I don’t think they heard you way in the back.

     Bulletproof blankets for kids.

Well.  America has always prided itself on ingenuity and creativity, and what’s more creative than a bulletproof blanket in response to the rise in school shootings?  Let’s find easy fixes to all of our problems involving schools and education.  Poor school districts with no money to fix infrastructure like leaky roofs?  Just give the kids umbrellas.  Students at the the end of a schoolyear without the basics of that grade’s reading or math?  Just pass em to the next grade.  Somebody’ll deal with it.  Schools aren’t meeting government standards for recommended nutrition?  Well, lower the standards and try to classify pizza as a vegetable.

Go ‘Murrka!

     VA GOP bribed a Senate Democrat to block healthcare for poor voters.

This is the nastiest piece of politics I’ve seen in awhile.  Not that things like this don’t happen, but usually we never find out about it.  Sen. Phillip P. Puckett (D) was promised a plum position with Virginia’s tobacco commission in exchange for stepping down from the Senate, which would give Republicans a majority in that chamber.  The House already belongs to Republicans in Virginia and they want to block Medicare expansions under Obamacare.  With Pucket stepping down, the Senate’s vote would also lean Republican and thousands of poor Virginians would be without healthcare.

Republican or Democrat, we can all agree that politics is nasty and politicians are scum.  And Puckett is spineless.
