I love love LOVE the WhirledNutDaily!

Apparently, the success of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows “renews concerns that children are being lured to Satan.” After “concerns” they left out “…among dumbshits…”

A reminder note about Blogger’s glitchy comment issues

If you try posting a comment, and a window comes up telling you that what you wrote was “too large,” ignore it. Your comment almost certainly posted anyway. Blogger is just messed up like that sometimes.

Can we please stop having religion, people?

So this idiot punk-ass Somali kid decides he wants to be a big jihad hero and set off a bomb in Portland, and is exactly dumb enough to walk right into a sting. I imagine the FBI was having a hard time not laughing as they handed him the cell phone he thought would trigger …

Here are the first three (of nine) video installments of the debate between Matt and Fr. Hans Jacobse at The University of Maryland, Baltimore County, yesterday. According to the writeup, Fr.

You knew this was coming, didn’t you?

So the Rethuglican Taliban are on the warpath, and once again they’re all about using the government to shove Jebus down all our throats (all the while pontificating that they got back into power because they’re all about “less government,” of course). So far, we have one gasbag here in Texas wasting no time in …
