Reality? We don't need no stinkin' reality

As we have seen in issues ranging from climate change to evolution, Republicans do not let reality interfere with their chosen political message.

Even with that Texas Grand Jury refusing to indict Planned Parenthood and instead indicting the perpetrators of the video "sting," even after countless Republican-led Congressional and state investigations of PP finding no wrong-doing by the organization, the GOP candidates running for president continue to lie - there is no other word for it - about PP "harvesting" and "selling body parts."

They will not admit their horror stories are wrong. They will not admit PP is legally providing fetal tissue for much needed research and charging small fees to cover their expenses.

Reality does not matter to these people.

At the next GOP debate, Carly Fiorina should be asked why she continues to lie through her teeth about the "gruesome" Planned Parenthood videos she supposedly saw. Videos that DO. NOT. EXIST.

Sadly, I doubt she will be asked.

The differences in the guest list

If you ever want to see an example of the stark difference between the two political parties, sometimes you can find it in little things: just look at some of the guests invited to President Obama's State of the Union address last night.

The Democrats invited a Syrian refugee who has been taken in by the U.S. as he fled the carnage in his homeland. The Republicans invited Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who tried to stigmatize gay couples and treat them as second class citizens when they sought a marriage license in her county.

One represents kindness and mercy. One hate and bigotry.

And not just hate and bigotry, but proudly willing to announce it to a national tv audience.

What the ACTUAL fuck that Kars 4 Kids commercial selling?

And please stop it from coming onto my TV.

The song and those brats make me lunge for the remote almost as fast as I do with the PSA for those poor dogs and that mournful Sarah McLachlan song behind it.
