Michele Bachmann Says She’s Like John Wayne Gacy

Republican Steve King: Only Christians Don’t Like Killing Dogs

Yesterday, Truman identified a particularly yummy bit of babble by Representative Steve King of Iowa in which he asserts that America is a Christian nation because we speak English and derive our cherished values from the ancient Greeks.

Immigrant Rights in Nebraska and Iowa Fall Away

Years ago, when we started the Nebraska Progressive Directory, we were happy to list the Immigrant Rights Network of Iowa and Nebraska. Now, we’re sorry to say that the network appears to have fallen away – just when immigrants in these midwestern states are especially in need of help.

Nebraska Appleseed is picking up some […]

Tracking 2012: GOP Contenders for President in CafePress and Technorati Searches, March-April 2009

As Barack Obama settles in to the rhythm of accolade and complaint accompanying tenure in the White House, the shuffle and the hustle of the next Presidential race has already begun, at least on the Republican side. Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee are taking pains […]

God Punishes Sodomites of Iowa With Warm Air and Sunshine

“God Cannot Be Mocked,” we were reminded yesterday after posting an April Fools Day conversion. Mock God and there will be consequences! What kind of consequences? Well, prominent John McCain endorser John Hagee proclaims weather to be an instrument of God’s judgment against gay people, except when the hurricanes miss the gay people and kill […]

The Most Lame Argument Against Equality

For a legislator to ignore those rights because of the demands of a religious organization, when those demands don’t even fit the personal moral vision of the legislator, is not just unconstitutional. It’s incompetent. […]
