Mike Huckabee, Building for 2012 Run, to Put Witch Killing in Constitution?

Mike Huckabee, President, Witch Killer?

Mike Huckabee, Republican presidential candidate in 2008, is sure acting like he’s going to be making a run for president in 2012. He’s written a book. He’s heading to Iowa. When asked whether he’ll be running for president in the next cycle, he coyly responds that “I’m not ruling anything […]

Catholic League Incites More Witch Hunts

Magic spells don’t kill people, although people like Bill Donohue and Sarah Palin apparently believe that they do.

Thomas Muthee To Speak At Sarah Palin Church This Weekend

Thomas Muthee is coming to Wasilla again this weekend. He’ll be delivering a set of new sermons at the Wasilla Assembly of God church, the very church where Sarah Palin thanked Thomas Muthee a few weeks ago for giving her enough supernatural mojo to become Governor of Alaska. If there are any witches in Wasilla, you might want to get of town for the weekend. […]

Sarah Palin, How Is Stoning Women Feminist?

Sarah Palin’s close relationship with Thomas Muthee calls into serious question the quality of her judgment and the modernity of her education. Sarah Palin has denied the reality of global warming, doesn’t believe in education, would return reproductive health to the state it was in 100 years ago, and associates with people who go hunting for witches.

Lynching Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin can’t have it both ways. She can’t claim to be a pit bull in lipstick, but then turn into a quivering jellyfish the minute someone says “boo”. […]
