Sorry Republicans, the Honduran refugees aren’t this year’s “headless bodies”

On Tuesday morning, some goobers in Arizona thought they were going to repeat what goobers in Murrieta, CA did last week, when they got a bus full of refugees from Honduras to turn around, and border agents to stop sending anymore migrant children through their community, by being screaming assholes. Sadly for the Arizona effort, […]

A demonstration via Venn Diagram for a couple of AZ Dem delegation members

Borrowing a page from Atrios, I’m going to just put this out there for Reps. Ron Barber of AZ CD2 and Kyrsten Sinema of CD9. Note the complete lack of overlap between those two groups of people. I’m honestly mystified by their votes. There’s nothing here to even impress dimwitted centrist pundits. My first guess […]

Dirty, unsafe clinic found in Tucson. Pro-lifers, where are you?

Per the Arizona Daily Star: Gustavo Nuñez, 50, and Ilda Garcia, 39, were arrested Aug. 1 and face felony charges, including possession of dangerous drugs and practicing medicine without a license, said Ramona Sanchez, a Drug Enforcement Administration special agent. The two were booked into the Pima County jail, and released on their own recognizance, […]

The AZ Democratic Party is neither Tammany Hall nor a group of venture capitalists

This editorial appeared in Saturday’s AZ Republic. Nomiki Konst was a candidate for Congress in CD2 (Ron Barber’s seat) and claims she was “pushed out” of the race. In a year when Democrats triumphed against the odds, Arizona Democrats blew it. President Barack Obama built an historic victory by continuing the construction of a coalition […]

Jeff Flake’s lame and insecure attacks on Richard Carmona

Senate candidate Jeff Flake, who went on a survivalist vacation in 2009 to demonstrate to everyone what a manly man he is (with survival-ly beefcake photos he took of himself to prove it), seems to have a serious case of bio envy of his opponent, Dr. Richard Carmona. Carmona has a c.v. that includes combat […]

My, someone’s got his whinypants on today

Today’s AZ Republic editorial, clearly written by a very butthurt Doug MacEachern, was a whinefest over how The Daily Show interviewed a dumb wingnut and he came off like, well, a dumb wingnut: A less articulate critic of the program would be impossible to find. The segment was a cringe-inducing humiliation of the tongue-tied man. […]
