Tomorrow we’ll dive back into the rapids and face the increasingly crazed wingnut masses once again, but tonight it’s time for something beautiful.
It’s the new Tea Party hotness versus stale old Karl “Turd Blossom” Rove, in a cage match to the finish! The challenge to Rove’s supremacy is led by talk radio raver Steve Deace and Breitbart attack weasel Ben Shapiro!

The woman Governor Rick Perry personally chose to chair the Texas State Board of Education, Barbara Cargill, is a creationist.
Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be. This is what Republicans will do every time they get the chance.
The Texas Freedom Network is keeping an eye on these religious fanatics, and they’ve posted a video of Cargill speaking at a Senate Education Committee hearing in Austin, complaining that the curriculum used by Texas school districts doesn’t “teach the controversy” about the theory of evolution.
