They are among a population of roving turkeys that has become a mess-making, traffic-stopping scourge to some residents, an unexpected bit of makeshift nature to others and a fraught project for government officials. Since dozens of the turkeys were rounded up and killed this summer, the birds’ future has become as a topic as heated as a Thanksgiving meat thermometer. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)

Next Ferguson Narrative: Racist Cop Shot Kid For Questioning His Manhood

11:03 AM 11/26/2014

Just because there's no evidence that "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" ever happened, and plenty of evidence to the contrary, that doesn't mean you should change your opinion. Why let the facts get in the way of a good story?

The great thing about Obama's TelePrompter is that when he stops reading from it, he slips up and tells the truth.

Obamacare: Inside Chucky Schumer

2:37 PM 11/25/2014

Now that Jonathan Gruber has removed all doubt among anybody with an IQ above room temperature, at least one of Obama's former comrades can point out the obvious: Obamacare stinks. Chuck Schumer is attacking King Barry from the left, of course, but at least for once he's half-right.

Does it really count as a lie if the people you're targeting already know you're lying, but they're okay with it because it'll help them get what they want?

I Stand Corrected RE: Obama’s Executive Amnesty

1:38 PM 11/24/2014

Boy, is my face red. I was silly enough to think that when the president of the United States stood up in front of everybody and tore the Constitution into little tiny pieces, it was a bad thing. But actually it's a really good thing, you guys!

From The Treacher Archives: How A ‘Stimulus’ Bill Became A Law

9:33 AM 11/24/2014

Apparently, SNL has decided Obama is no longer "flawless." Even the comedic geniuses at 30 Rock can't ignore his lawlessness anymore:

Obama: Laws, Schmaws

11:50 AM 11/21/2014

You'll read and hear a lot of words expended on Obama's executive amnesty, but here's what it boils down to: If he can get what he wants via legal or quasi-legal means, fine. He'll hammer a square peg into a round hole until it just about fits, and then he'll claim the hole was square all along.

House Of Cosbys

10:01 AM 11/21/2014

The following comes from Channel101.com, a comedy site created by Dan Harmon (Community, being even tougher to work with than Chevy Chase, etc.) and Rob Schrab. It's a very silly cartoon about a guy who figures out how to make clones of Bill Cosby, each with some particular trait. Basically, it was an excuse for a bunch of nerds to do their crappy Cosby impressions, build a goofy story around it, and animate it. It was a loving (if twisted) homage to a comedian they'd all grown up with.

Elizabeth Warren Shuts Down Fellow Native American On Senate Floor

10:19 AM 11/20/2014

As we all know, Elizabeth Warren is a Native American when it suits her. She's glad to use her purported heritage when it's to her advantage. But as you're about to see, she'll cast it aside in an instant when it embarrasses her.

From 1969: Bill Cosby On ‘Spanish Fly’

12:55 PM 11/19/2014

I am officially an agnostic regarding the rape allegations against Bill Cosby. It doesn't sound good, and it's getting worse by the day, but I still don't know what to believe. I don't blame anybody else for making up their minds, but I haven't yet.

Dear Abortion Enthusiasts: Is It Okay To Kill Your Baby In The Womb If He’s Gay?

11:54 AM 11/19/2014

If there's one thing we know for sure about our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left, it's that they f***ing love science. But sometimes scientific advancement raises some rather thorny questions. Especially if you're too smart to really believe in anything.

Grubergate Explained

5:21 PM 11/18/2014

It's only been a week since Jonathan Gruber, Obamacare's one-man wrecking crew, started sweating his gonads off. Almost every day, somebody uncovers yet another Gruber soundbite about how lying in service of Obamacare is awesome, and if you believed any of it, you're dumb. For this service and his other forms of fraud, the feds and several states have thrown millions of dollars at Gruber.
