Reading Time: 7 minutes Last week, the Duggar clown car family hit the headlines again. Unsurprisingly, those headlines centered on the arrest of family scion Josh Duggar. Federal authorities charged him with possessing child pornography. Slowly, news has been trickling out about what his father, Jim Bob Duggar, knew and how he handled his eldest son’s impending arrest. I wasn’t at all surprised to hear about his reactions, either. His family struggles hard these days — not with substantively addressing Josh Duggar’s sickening perversion and degeneracy, no, but rather with protecting their family’s two increasingly tainted brands. Today, I’ll show you what the Duggar brand is and how the Duggar patriarch is desperately trying to protect it from that taint.

Reading Time: 9 minutes Michelle said in her breathy, wondering, affectation of a little-girl voice, “an…. agenda???” That voice caught my attention in a major way. I live under a rock. I don’t pay much attention to reality TV. I hadn’t noticed her voice until this interview. But once I noticed it, a lot of stuff fell into place for me.
Reading Time: 10 minutes Here is what a real apology looks like, and notice, please, that the response of Josh Duggar and his parents does not look anything like this list.
Reading Time: 6 minutes Here’s a quick between-meals snack of three new defenses that are emerging around the Josh Duggar molestation scandal and why they fail completely.
Reading Time: 11 minutes By now you’ve likely heard about the scandal rocking the right-wing conservative Christ-o-sphere: Josh Duggar, one of the older sons of the fundagelical reality-TV Duggar family, has confessed publicly to being a child molester. Worst of all, it seems clear that at least some of his victims were his own young sisters. The story gets more and more shocking with every single new detail that emerges about it. Just when I think it’s gotten as bad as it can get, I see something else. So tonight we’re going to talk about it.
