Keep Calm And Vote for the Idiot Brain Surgeon: Behind the Inexplicable Appeal of Ben Carson

Keep Calm And Vote for the Idiot Brain Surgeon: Behind the Inexplicable Appeal of Ben Carson

Skewed News — As a leftist, it makes me feel exceedingly uncomfortable to call the only major black presidential candidate stupid. It’s especially strange to be so certain that he’s a dumbass, given that he’s a brain surgeon. But there it is. It’s true, and it needs to be said. Ben Carson is stupid. For the media, it’s the gaffes. […]

Letter to Right-Wingers: Why No One on the Left Cares About Benghazi

Skewed News — Today is day one of the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s questioning of Hillary Rodham Clinton. I have news for my Republican friends: nothing that happens today or later this week will change the fact that no one on the left cares about Benghazi. 35% of Americans don’t even know what Benghazi is. Liberal disinterest in assigning […]

Corrupted by Obama, Joe Biden Drops Out Before Running

Corrupted by Obama, Joe Biden Drops Out Before Running

Skewed News — Biden isn’t running. Good. Not that he couldn’t have made a good president. The vice president certainly would have been better than Obama, on every front: more legislative experience, a big vision for policy, a natural, undeniable warmth, a love of people you just don’t see in Obama (nicknamed Spock by New York Times columnist-snarkmaster Maureen Dowd). […]

Beyond Feminism and Other Defensive Battles: To End All Oppression, We Must Destroy Capitalism!

Skewed News — What does ending the oppression of women look like? How will we know when we’ve achieved it? When we’re allowed to get free abortions whenever we want? When we no longer have to fear or experience rape? When we stop sex trafficking? When we all feel positive about our bodies and minds? When all girls in the […]

Resistance Hero Defies Invasive Airline Seat “Recliner,” Strikes Blow for Decency

Skewed News — Behavioral scientists conducted experiments during the 1960s to test the effects of overpopulation. What happens, they wanted to know, when there are too many rats and/or not enough food or water to nourish them, in a cage? Some rats withdrew from the colony, taking to a corner to groom themselves. Others mutilated themselves. Other rats turned violent. […]

Obama: Tens of Thousands of U.S. Troops Went Missing for 321 Days

The announcement follows the November 2013 announcement that thousands of American troops would remain in Afghanistan until at least 2024. “U.S. troops and their NATO allies in […]

Sex is Dying in High Society: Why Are Intellectuals Celebrating Sexlessness?

Sex is Dying in High Society: Why Are Intellectuals Celebrating Sexlessness?

Skewed News — Sex is bad — for your career, if you’re a writer. This wasn’t always the case. I’m just barely old enough to remember when sex was celebrated. Lack of sex, on the other hand, was considered, if not exactly tragic, certainly nothing to brag about. Nowadays, however, sex positivity is something some people (feminists, mainly, well some […]
