False, misleading, racist, cynical and just plain strange campaign ads are nothing new in politics. But thanks to a recent string of court rulings gutting campaign finance regulations, such ads are now more plentiful than ever. Thanks to this flood of spending, it probably won’t be long before the next round of outrageous campaign ads hits the airwaves. But in the meantime, we’re taking a look back at some of the best — and by “best” we mean “worst” — Republican campaign ads of the 2014 cycle. 5. Bibles & Guns, Bibles & Guns Zach Dasher... MORE >

Last night, anti-gay activists gathered in Houston, Texas, for an event called "I Stand Sunday" to rally against subpoenas issued by the city government to five local pastors as part of a lawsuit filed by activists in an effort to overturn the city's nondiscrimination ordinance. The subpoenas have been withdrawn, but right-wing activists are still demanding that the petitions they had submitted to put the nondiscrimination ordinance on the ballot be honored by the city, rallying around the cry of "let the people vote!" The main contention of the activists is that the... MORE >

Houston Mayor Annise Parker has announced that the subpoenas sent to five area pastors have been withdrawn. David Benham was on hand in Ohio last night to a support radical right-wing pastor's fight against a local strip club. A good question: "Is Ebola a Sign of Judgment or a Prophetic Warning?" Is anyone surprised that there is now a right-wing effort underway to get nurse Kaci Hickox fired from her job for refusing to submit to involuntary quarantine after she returned from treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone? Janet Mefferd is not happy with Russell... MORE >

“Duck Dynasty” family member Alan Robertson spoke to the Values Voter Summit last night about criticism of his father Phil Robertson’s racist and anti-gay statements. Robertson said his father was a victim of a plot by “the Evil One,” who wants to “derail [his] message” about “a return to godliness,” which apparently includes waxing nostalgic about Jim Crow and smearing gays and lesbians. “We’re talking about undergoing that change and trying to help other people see that because now you realize we’ve got generations of...

Phil Robertson continues to display his love for the gays: "I'm trying to help those poor souls and turn them to Jesus." Glenn Beck is beginning to have deep misgivings about Rand Paul. Joseph Farah declares that if Hillary Clinton becomes president, she will "eliminate the First Amendment and the Second Amendment in one fell swoop" because "she’s every bit as un-American and evil as Barack Obama." Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese Christian woman sentenced to death for refusing to convert to Islam, has been freed. Finally,... MORE >

Following the Republican Party's embarrassing showing in the 2012 elections, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus put together a task force to analyze just what was wrong with the party and which eventually resulted in the release of a report that found that the GOP's ultra-right-wing ideology was making it increasingly unappealing to voters who see the party as nothing but a bunch of "narrow-minded" and "out of touch ... stuffy old men." Naturally, the GOP has then gone about systematically ignoring all of the recommendations made in this autopsy report, which is why an... MORE >

After making racist and homophobic comments in a magazine interview last year, “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson is slated to address the Republican Leadership Conference tomorrow along with Family Research Council President Tony Perkins and U.S. Sen. David Vitter, the Louisiana Republican previously embroiled in a prostitution scandal. Phil’s son Alan Robertson, who at last week’s FRC “Watchmen on the Wall” conference hailed his father as a “21st century prophet” akin to John the Baptist, appeared on American Family Radio last week to claim...
