Democrats are riding hard on the Hillary train, knowing that she will not only perform with women but voters overall; the GOP keeps trying to get its foot in the lady door, but keeps picking complete assholes to speak on its behalf. Cue: Rand Paul. Rand Paul—in his unparalleled idiotic wisdom—said that the election of a female president ... Read More

Well, it has officially happened. Texas Senator Ted Cruz has announced he will be running for president in 2016 (we’re groaning too). Aside from spouting that we Americans need to “return to the truth” and how “it’s going to take a new generation of courageous conservatives to make America great again,” Cruz has ironically been the one ending up way behind on the polls, without much support from his colleagues. But alright, Mr. ... Read More
