DNC 2016: Hey, At Least We Aren’t Insane

     Well, the Democratic National Convention wound up last night and I have to say, from a comedy standpoint, it was boring as fuck. To be fair, though, it did have a hard act to follow. But then, next to the shitstorm that blew through Cleveland last week, “Blazing Saddles” (widely acknowledged as one […]

RNC Follies

During a recent Facebook Live prayer event, Franklin Graham said that our country “is in trouble”. He even went so far as to say, “We’re on the precipice of anarchy.” And, I agree with him 100%. Why would I ever agree with anything Franklin says? Simple, I’ve been following the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. And, […]

Michele Bachmann: The End Times Are Upon Us…, Again

Just a few days ago, former Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann took batshit crazy to new levels, claiming that President Obama would attempt “to extend his presidency, even enhance it and expand it” by taking over the United Nations. Why? Because he’s the Antichrist and wants to bring about the End of Days, that’s why. Actually, […]

What The Hell, People?

In the past 24 hours, it has come to my attention that: A majority of Republicans believe the President is actually a Muslim. That just as many think he wasn’t born in the U. S., while 40% of that same group believe that Ted Cruz was. More than 60% want to amend the Constitution to […]

The Dumbest Thing On The Internet

I’m thinking about starting a new feature called “Dumbest Thing On The Internet”. If that happens, this will most likely be the inaugural piece.  It appears that some folks are a little upset over a recent change in the United States Oath of Allegiance. claiming it was done to comply with Sharia law. According to the latest […]

Pray the Gay Away?

Last week, the President responded to a petition on the White House’s “We the People” site calling for a ban on gay conversion therapy for minors and enact Leelah’s Law, lending his support. As the father of a transgender teen, I couldn’t be happier. But, there are others who don’t share that happiness; mostly conservatives. […]

A Post-Post-Racial Society?

I have a confession to make: I didn’t vote for Barrack Obama in 2008. While I’m not sure if that means I was a racist back then, the fact that I did vote for him in 2012 has to show that I have overcome whatever racist tendencies from my youth might have hung on into […]

Why, That’s Just Crazy Talk

So, it appears that since the last mid-term elections, President Obama has subscribed to “No F@#ks Monthly” and his extremely low GASF was on full display Thursday at the National Prayer Breakfast. In a speech before faith and political leaders, he called out Christians for throwing rocks at Islam because of it’s more violent practitioners: “Humanity has […]

This Country Is Going Straight To Hell

Once again, I’m handing over the reins of the Progressive Redneck to my boyhood friend, Jefferson Davis Dudley. Jeff is very concerned over the course our nation is taking and wants to ask for your help. So, without further ado, here’s Jeff((As always, any post from my “friend” should be read as satire)). Once again, […]

The Cult Of The Manly Man

Last month, The New Yorker ran a piece by Adam Gopnik titled No More Mr. Tough Guy. It addressed the public perception (and by “public”, I mean conservative bloggers and pundits) that President Obama is a wimp, a weak sister, an effeminate girly-man. Of course, supporters (and liberal/progressive critics) of the President will say it isn’t so, […]
