    Actually, guys, GenCon is a roleplaying game convention, D&D and the like (it was founded by Gary Gygax, the co-creator of D&D), although there is a lot of science-fiction stuff there, and cosplay certainly does happen there, too. 🙂

    If Fox ratings means they have the best and most accurate newscast in the nation, then undoubtedly McDonalds must serve the finest cuisine.

    So in other words everything Rand Paul would cut is every bug that ever crawled up a right winger’s ass.

    Is that a picture of Ted Cruz or Pee Wee Herman? Hard to tell. Is that his official portrait?

    • ranger11

      I don’t think it’s real. It’s photo-shopped, I believe. At least, I hope it is.

      • Badgerite

        Well, he did read Green Eggs and Ham to Congress. Who knows.

    On one hand, the Ted Cruz Signs Up for Obamacare story is simply hilarious. On the other hand, talking about it gives Cruz attention, which is exactly what he craves. On the gripping hand, the brighter among Cruz’s aides realize the optics *urp* of this are terrible for him, which only makes the story funnier. I think this is what’s called an infinite loop.

    (The reason, incidentally, I don’t credit Ted Cruz with the self-awareness to realize he’s taken dead aim at his foot is this video of him delivering his automatic, go-to applause lines at the International Association of Fire Fighters. Watch and cringe.)

    Bob, I’m not picking on you, but the Obama Administration has done as well as could be expected at explaining the ACA. If you doubt, try to explain actuarial tables in a way that’s both accurate and entertaining enough to get people to put down their phones and pay attention. Sisyphus had an easier assignment.

    Chez, that expression is just the way Ted Cruz’s face is configured (ditto Jerry Falwell’s). In repose, some people’s faces settle into a scowl, others’ into a slight smile, and Cruz’s into a supercilious smirk. Doesn’t mean he’s not a smug, overbearing arsehole—he is—doesn’t mean his face isn’t punchable—it is—just means it’s not intentional.

    Bob, don’t be silly. the Kens and Barbies who inhabit our glorious news media can’t be bothered to understand a law their job required them to report on.

    Mike Pence and the knuckle-draggers who wrote that religious liberty law assume that the law will never be used on people they like. An inability to understand the concept of unintended consequences seems to be an important part of being a Righty. It could easily turn into the People’s Front of Judea shouting at the Judean People’s Front (“Splitters!”) by the time Indianans come to their senses.

    The only thing Rand Paul has ever believed with all his flabby little heart is that he would be an awesome President. His convictions, especially the ones the more-progressive-than-thou types fantasized about, have always been flexible at best (there’s a reason I used to call him Rand “I’m A Libertarian Except When It Comes To Ladybits” Paul). That he would abandon in a heartbeat his firmly-held beliefs in nonintervention and a smaller military should come as a surprise to exactly no one.

    Rand Paul is not a serious person.

    Bill O’Reilly is a lying liar who tells lies. Al Franken said that years ago and things haven’t changed in the intervening years.

    No sentence that contains the phrase “Chuck Johnson reported” can end well.

      that video of ted cruz is hilarious! he have more of a response if he was in an empty room!

      • muselet

        It’s the way he pauses for the exact amount of time he usually has to wait for the applause to die down that makes the video both funny and cringeworthy.

        Egads, what a dolt.


        • j hentai

          although the speech he gave at the middle eastern christian organization where he got booed offstage was pretty funny too!

          • muselet

            I’m convinced that was deliberate. He knew he was being offensive because he thought it would make him look tough, and pro-Likud and anti-Islam. If he hadn’t been hooted down, he would have been terribly disappointed.
