Quote of the Day

"I'm sure many of you are discouraged in the aftermath of the National Elections, especially in view of the moral and spiritual issues that took such a beating on November 6th. Nearly everything I have stood for these past 35 years went down to defeat."—Dr. James Dobson, founder of conservative nightmare factory Focus on the Family, in his New Year missive to the devotees of his crud philosophy.

Shockingly, this admission was not followed by a thoughtful recantation of everything for which he has stood for nearly four decades, followed by a promise to pursue intensive soul-searching to uncover what possibly could have made him so deeply hateful, illiberal, authoritarian, and comprehensively wrong about everything, but instead a list of lies about the Democratic Party and its current President. Huh!

Welp, good luck with everything, Dr. Dobson! I hope you live long enough to celebrate 75 years of being terribly, horribly wrong!
