News Summary
Cutting thru the Propaganda
Since the New Deal, Republicans have been on the wrong side of every issue of concern to ordinary Americans; Social Security, the war in Vietnam, equal rights, civil liberties, church- state separation, consumer issues, public education, reproductive freedom, national health care, labor issues, gun policy, campaign-finance reform, the environment
and tax fairness. No political party could remain so consistently wrong by accident.
The only rational conclusion is that, despite their cynical "family values" propaganda, the Republican Party is a criminal conspiracy to betray the interests of the American people
in favor of plutocratic and corporate interests, and absolutist religious groups. 

Why? Because they're evil GOP bastards!
Exposing the ugly truth
about the Republican Party's diabolical plot to replace constitutional democracy with an oligarchic
fascist theocracy...

It's the only rational explanation!
Why does the Republican Party zealously pursue policies so obviously counter to the best interests of ordinary Americans? 

It can only be
because they're...

We have railed against the Democrats' timidity and fecklessness, but never before have we seen an instance where a putative Democrat has engaged in such an outrageously repugnant act of gross self-interest at the expense of his constituents. We present the case of former Democratic State Senator Phillip J. Puckett, who was a member of the Democrats' bare functional majority in the Virginia state Senate after their victories in the 2013 elections. With Democratic Governor Terry McCauliff taking office, Medicaid expansion was at last coming to Virginia. But never underestimate Republican sleaze and Democratic weakness. Republicans offered Puckett the chairmanship of the state's lucrative -- and Republican-controlled -- Tobacco Board, as well as a judgeship for Puckett's daughter. Obligingly, Puckett resigned his Senate seat, depriving Democrats of their Senate majority, empowering Republican obstruction and screwing Virginia's poor out of their health care. As we've lamented before, with Democrats like Puckett, who needs Republicans?  MORE  MORMORE
