2016:

Finally! A Republican video game lets you to slap Hillary Clinton in the face

Proving that Republicans are (justifiably) scared shitless about a potential Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential run, a Republican anti-Clinton Super PAC brings you a game where you are encouraged to slap the former Secretary of State (who has not even announced that she’s running) across the face. But before getting to the game, let’s discuss the Super PAC, whose treasurer is Christopher M. Marston, a former member of the Bush administration and a Republican campaign finance consultant. The Super PAC is called The Hillary Project  and rocks the catchy motto “The Only Thing Standing Between Hillary and the White House.” I’ve provided a screenshot, so you can appreciate the artwork; the urgency of the red and the spookiness ...

RIP Helen Thomas, a trailblazing pioneer for women in journalism

Reporter Helen Thomas died at home in her Washington DC apartment, surrounded by her loved ones. She was 92 and had been ill for years, according to a friend.  Covering every president from JFK to Barack Obama, Thomas was an excellent reporter, in her own right, whose no-nonsense, probing questions made George Bush uncomfortable. But on top of these achievements, Thomas was a pioneer for women journalists and was a first in many things. For instance, Thomas

is considered the first woman to write about things not considered the “women’s beat,” which the AP defines as “the soft stories about presidents’ kids, wives, their teas and their hairdos.” was the first female White House bureau chief for a wire service (for ...

Hillary Clinton basically just announced her candidacy on Twitter

Kind of.

Clinton joined Twitter today, amassing over 70,000 followers in an hour. Her first and thus far only tweet ended “#tweetsfromhillary,” a clever nod to her own meme, but it’s her bio that caught our attention.

If you have the chance to be the first female president but actually plan to spend the rest of your life watching “Love It or List It,” “glass ceiling cracker, TBD…” is not how you present yourself to the world.

Hillary Clinton supports same-sex marriage

Duh. But awesome.

Conservative SuperPAC interns make a fake sex tape with a panda and Hillary Clinton

FreedomWorks is an astroturf conservative tea party group financed in large part by the Koch Brothers and Big Tobacco.  Elements of the tea party may have started on the grassroots level, but that didn’t last for long when rich conservatives saw the movement as an opportunity to capitalize on the tea party’s energy.  Enter FreedomWorks.

The investigation into FreedomWorks management is ongoing but today’s report in Mother Jones contained this gem (emphasis mine):

An internal investigation of FreedomWorks—the prominent conservative advocacy group and super-PAC—has focused on president Matt Kibbe’s management of the organization, his use of its resources, and a controversial book deal he signed, according to former FreedomWorks officials who have met with the private lawyers conducting the ...
