Is @Moloch_God Really Leading #SMOD & Cthulhu In The 2016 Apocalypse Race?

by Smitty The apocalyptic candidate scene has been roiled by recent news events and polling, with SMOD and Cthulhu suffering brutal, senseless damage to their support.

Rubio Knocks Out Jeb Bush in Debate

  The general consensus, and also my own personal opinion, is that Marco Rubio was the big winner of Wednesday’s Republican presidential debate on CNBC.

You Want To Whine About Being Offended?
Here, Let Me Give You Something To Whine About

Williamson and his friends have some suggestions for a replacement flag guaranteed to offend just about everybody, but especially the members of the pro-slavery, pro-segregation Democratic party.
