18Dr. Paul is going to be President and Mitt is trying to steal the most important 15 minutes of the election! Dr. Paul is the only one who cares about 'da Constitution and doesn't suck up to those darn Big Daddy GOP! Meet the embodiment of everything that is wrong with the average Paulbot.
42Meet 8 fellow fuckheads who think Todd Akin has a point.

19In a brief flash of rationality, some denizens of Godlike Productions crowd-source a huge list of failed prophecies that had been posted on their site.
22A local Tory writes: Facts are stupid things. You can use them to prove anything that's remotely true. Take that, "science!" Followup: You're all sooo mean.
