The Time Has Come for Donald Trump to Destroy the Haters and the Losers

Tom Scocca · 03/01/16 05:18PM

After tonight, unless the Super Tuesday polling is very, very wrong, Donald Trump will have largely finished crushing the rest of the Republican presidential field, and with it the plans of the various organizations and people who are described as making up the Republican party establishment. The Republican establishment will then begin making new plans, plans which involve supporting Donald Trump and trying to help him win the presidency in November.

All the Dumb Pundits Who Said Bobby Jindal Was the "GOP's Obama" 

Allie Jones · 11/19/15 01:12PM

Bobby Jindal, the Louisiana governor dedicated to making his state’s education system worse, became yet another Republican candidate to drop out of the presidential race on Tuesday. “I’ve come to the realization that this is not my time,” he told Fox News. That’s true. Bobby Jindal’s “time” was six years ago, when a bunch of dumb pundits said he would be the “next Reagan” and the “GOP’s Obama.”

Bobby Jindal Nails Trump With Brutal Self-Own, Flagrant Copyright Infringement

Ashley Feinberg · 09/11/15 04:45PM

Bobby Jindal and whatever remaining social media-literate staff he has left have spent the last 24 hours doing their best impression of a Trump smear campaign, calling the time-displaced Sopranos extra “not serious,” “a narcissist, “an egomaniac,” “a carnival act,” “a very weak and small person,” and “dangerous.” All of which are both true and perhaps some of the most honest, biting, and uninhibited criticism of Trump to come from a GOP candidate yet—from a proud anti-gay exorcist, no less.

Buzzfeed and Bobby Jindal Try to Out-Whore One Another

The media is often granted access to important people. What responsibility—if any—do news outlets have to not be dirty, desperate, pitiful whores in exchange for this access?

No, Planned Parenthood Is Not Selling Aborted Fetal Body Parts

Ashley Feinberg · 07/14/15 05:15PM

Earlier today, an eight-minute “undercover” video surfaced purporting to show Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services talking about selling the body parts of aborted human fetuses for the non-profit’s financial gain. Which would be shocking, certainly—if any of it were true.

Report: Oh God, This Guy Too, Probably

Hudson Hongo · 06/03/15 12:45AM

According to NBC News, Louisiana’s Republican Governor Bobby Jindal will be making “a major announcement” about his 2016 plans later this month. Which—barring an declaration that he seeks to abolish the federal government and name himself Jindalator Supreme—means that he, too, is likely running for president.

Bobby Jindal Wants to Be President of Bigot Pizza Nation

Ashley Feinberg · 04/23/15 05:21PM

Louisiana governor and presumed 2016 presidential contender Bobby Jindal has an op-ed in The New York Times in which he takes a stand against everyone taking a stand against businesses taking a stand against gay marriage, and publicizes his push to pass a bill forbidding his state from taking “adverse action” against businesses that discriminate against same-sex couples. How brave.

Bobby Jindal Is a Postmodern Joke

Adam Weinstein · 02/25/14 01:42PM

In case you missed it, Republican Louisiana Governor and NBC page Bobby Jindal unexpectedly sprang from the stage wings yesterday to step into conservatism's currently fashionable star role: the Righteously Indignant Douche-Canoe. As usual, he wasn't equal to the performance.

Exorcists, Empty Suits, and Granny Starvers: The Gawker Guide to Mitt Romney's VP Picks

Mobutu Sese Seko · 07/19/12 10:10AM

The last week must have thrilled anybody playing Romney VP bingo. Rumors suggested Romney would pick Condoleezza Rice. Rice has never run for—nor expressed interest in—elected office, probably couldn't siphon "the black vote" away from Carlton on Fresh Prince, and her candidacy's soundtrack would be Block Rockin' Briefs '01: Bin Laden Determined to Attack U.S. This week the VP rumor was about Tim Pawlenty, who is boring.
