Republicans running for president say the meanest things.
Looking for a specific RP comic and/or Rant and can't find it?

start rant


car wreck"If someone is deathly ill and couldn't afford health insurance, we should let him die."


"Child laws are truly stupid."


"Vaccines make you retarded."


"A little torture never hurt anybody."


"Let's electrify the border fence. That would be awesome!"


"If you're unemployed, blame yourself."


"We need more foreclosures."


"I executed 234 people."


If you can't find a bear-baiting or a fresh traffic fatality to rubber-neck why not attend one of the Republican presidential debates? It'll afford you no end of opportunities to jeer the less fortunate. It's what Jesus would have done.


And now our "Chart of the Day":

This chart does not indicate that more students than ever are attending college. It means something disastrously wrong has happened to our education system.



Republican Job Creation Update

john boehner"We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs." - John Boehner, February 10, 2011.

The following is #122 in a list of Republican job creation activities since they gained control of the House in 2011. None, sad to say, have yet to result in one, single new job.

(122) 12-16-2011: Today the House wasted time debating the excremental SOPA bill, but it was ultimately tabled until the 16th. Call your congressman now and demand he oppose this wretched bit of legislation.

NOTE: As a result of an unexpected wave of enthusiasm the Republican Job Creation update now has its own web site. It will remain on the RP but a web site of its own will raise its visibility on the 'net as we progress towards the critical 2012 elections. And I thank you for your support.


Dump Fox News

Fox News Lies!The Obama justice department is actively fighting onerous voter restriction laws enacted by Republicans legislatures. Fox News thinks the laws are just hunky-dory. Surprise-surprise.
