He forgot to paint the guy holding the Bible upside down and backwards, like...

...his hero Drumpf.

Apparently McNaughton sells really expensive prints of his paintings. I wonder if you can get them on black velvet? I need one to hang next to a velvet Elvis I've got!

Yep. He knows what he's doing. All the conspiracy theorists seem to be obsessed with the mRNA...

...technology in the new vaccines. The execrable Emerald Robinson got fired from NewsMax for being too extreme (!) in her antivax "reporting"; much of it was preoccupied with mRNA technology. NewsMax began requiring a Covid vaccination shortly after Fox News did. Robinson made so many shrill, ridiculous antivax tweets that NewsMax had no choice but to fire her after those tweets became international news. Another NewsMax "reporter", Steve Cortes, was fired for the same reason.

Stochastic terrorism.


By the way, WTF is a "perfect" phone call?! Hasn't Drumpf used that expression...

...on multiple occasions? Is his vocabulary so impoverished that he needs to use these non-sequitur expressions all the time? I've never heard anyone else describe a phone call as "perfect".

This is "co-belligerence", where radtrad Catholics and fundamentalist Protestants...

...make common cause even when they otherwise hate each other. (For example, Catholics have been extremely underrepresented in the leadership of most religious right groups, so they eventually created their own, especially when it came to the abortion issue). The "abnormal lifestyle choice" nonsense is extremely close to radtrad Catholic language. Their favorite thought-terminating cliché is "intrinsically disordered lifestyle". It is a constant mantra on EWTN, (Ir)-Relevant Radio, etc. Now it's finding its way into the GOP platform.

The far-right radtrads at Church Militant go after Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson.

It's pretty funny to see the zealots at Church Militant battling the "Rev" Peterson. It's a real cringefest, and strangely enjoyable at the same time. (Extra credit cringe for that "BOND villain" line). As the kids say, "let them fight!".

Amazing Disgrace: The Secret Life of Conservative Icon Jesse Lee Peterson

Jesse Lee Peterson is a self-described pastor. Church Militant's Joseph Enders uncovers the alleged homosexual grooming and purported spiritual predation that turned the founder of the Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny (BOND) into a BOND villain.


There's a minority, backed by reactionary billionaires, that make a lot of noise...

...on their various paid-for platforms nobody watches or listens to like EWTN and (Ir)-Relevant Radio. That doesn't keep them from "trying to tell the world how it should spin", as the song goes. They may be approaching the point of delusional overconfidence. The rank-and-file laity doesn't give a shit and they are sick of hearing this garbage all the time.

Hmm. "...He fought for policies to help Black children while on the Buffalo School Board". Let me...

...guess: school vouchers? Yeah, let's help the little brown kids by putting them in schools that teach that the world is 6000 years old.

This Paladino idiot is a real piece of work...and a real piece of shit.

What's funny (and prescient) about your suggestion (draft 'em) is a remark made by...

...the Chapo Trap House (podcast) guys a couple of years ago. They mentioned that the morons who join the Proud Boys and other fash groups are the Western world's version of the frustrated young men from Islamic cultures who sign up to be cannon fodder for terrorist organizations like ISIS and Boko Haram.

There are basically two possibilities for the country's future, based on attitudes like those...

...of DeSantis. They are predicated on whether we get out of this alive. In the previous sentence, the word "this" refers to the entire shitstorm we currently face. "This" includes Covid as a major factor, but it encompasses many other crises with which we are all familiar.

(1) If we get out of this, many PhD theses and popular books alike will be written about the death drive of Americans in the early 21st century and why it existed. Conversely...

(2) If we don't make it out alive, the aliens visiting the ruins of our civilization 50,000 years from now will dig through the radioactive rubble, find a newspaper quoting one of DeSantis' moronically insane antivax speeches, point to a photo of him, and say "you helped this happen!".

Possible reality #2 also applies to politicians who banned Medicare from negotiating prescription drug prices, among countless other acts of stupendous, unforgivable corruption.
