I’m not your damn scapegoat

I know, I know, I shouldn’t even pay attention to what’s going on at WorldNutDaily, but a listener forwarded this to us and it pisses me off. A New York man is linking the suicide of his 22-year-old son, a military veteran who had bright prospects in college, to the anti-Christian book “The God Delusion” …

A reason to celebrate Thanksgiving!

Word is making the rounds that the reactionary right’s own personal Ilsa and card-carrying Joe McCarthy fangirl— yes yes, I’m talking about Ann Coulter — has somehow broken her jaw, requiring that it be wired shut. Really! I wonder how much her doctors would ask for to leave it that way… Shall we enjoy a …

Siren song

I had a whole lot of fun hosting the show yesterday, and I’m glad I get to do it more, but there’s one new thing that’s really dangerous for me. It’s the chat room. Now that we are streaming live and have an associated chat, first of all we’re going out live to an international …

You asked for it

Here’s a distant shot of Clare Wuellner of CFI-Austin in The Dress, giving testimony at Wednesday’s SBOE hearings. This comes from Steve Schafersman’s own blog. If you’d prefer a more journalistic, detailed, play-by-play account of the day’s events — you know, who spoke and what they said — and not just my indignant ranting, Steve’s …

Crippled dogs and one-trick ponies

I’ve just returned from the Texas SBOE hearings on Science TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) standards, and I’m so full of disgust and dismay that I’m at a loss for words to express it with enough rancor. You can, however, expect me to go on at length anyway. The whole thing was such a …

Wednesday is coming up fast

That will be the day of the Texas SBOE hearings, people. If you haven’t signed up to speak, it’s too late now, unfortunately. But you can still attend, if that’s a free day for you. The Texas Freedom Network has a FAQ page up with information for those planning to show up. Check it out. …

The usual whiny hypocrisy

Welcome to Amerika. Where this, I am told, is offensive… …but this isn’t. Let’s see. The top billboard is simply a message from a group of unbelievers reaching out to other unbelievers who may feel they’re alone, isolated in a hostile religious culture. The bottom billboard, on the other hand, is making very curt and …

Ted, somehow I’m dubious

Oh, Ted. Ted Ted Ted. (Haggard, I mean, for those of you just tuning in.) So you’ve come out today with your latest excuse for, after years of hypocritically posing as a greal moral religious leader, finally being revealed as a drug-abusing, adulterous, whoremongering sodomite. And it’s that old standby, “I was abused as a …

The disgraceful cost of the Iraq War

In the news today is word from Afghanistan that those wacky pranksters in the Taliban thought it would be a hoot to spray some teenage girls walking to school in the face with acid. Now two of them are blind! Hooray for the religion of peace. (Because it is, of course, against their precious religionthat …

To those who think I’m wrong to claim that right-wingers’ lives are ruled by fear…

…I present this headline. Addendum: Factcheck.org exposes the falsehoods behind the NRA’s fear campaign regarding Obama’s views on guns. Still, you gotta admit the gun lobby’s come up with a great con to boost sales, hasn’t it? Take a page from religion’s playbook: exploiting fear and uncertainty always sells.
