Mitt Romney. Fiscal Conservative. Social Idiot.

Mitt Romney thinks that it’s just awful that there weren’t enough racists and billionaires to win an election in America anymore. Even the Republicans have had enough of his bullsh*t. Or, maybe not, if Fox News is anything to go by. 

See, it seems to me that the whole impetus behind the so-called conservative moment is actually a form of mental illness — that nothing is ever their fault, that they are the victims of circumstance, Conservatism  as it’s currently defined in America, should be seen as an abdication of personal responsibility to him/herself and the community at large.


A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.

  1. It doesn’t matter if they move to target a “bigger tent.” Whenver you hear a Republican talk about reaching out, they speak like salesmen or people in marketing departments. For them, minorities and women are “customers” not people. Look for a fresh new ethnic (or female) face on the Republican party, hiding the same old ideas that were out of vogue 50 years ago.
