Happy Halloween Discurso

Samhain eve’s opining on the public discourse. There are probably scarier things to be for Halloween than a Republicon, but I’m hard-pressed to think of any just now. Let’s start off with a display of Sarah Palin’s ghoulish ignorance. In today’s episode, she fails to understand the First Amendment: Sarah Palin sees her free-speech rights …

Friday Favorite Halloween Costumes

‘Tis Samhain Eve. All Hallows Eve, for you Christians in the audience (and I know you’re there because one of the smarmy variety came by to troll and is getting thoroughly trounced by my beloved heathens – my dear Catholic heart sister NP should be along soon to administer the coup de grace). Halloween ranks …

Beyond Pathetic

Obama pulls in crowds of up to 100,000 on a regular basis. I didn’t think there were 100,000 people total in America who gave enough of a rat’s ass about politics to stand for hours in line just to get packed in like sardines for yet more hours in order to listen to a man’s …

Peanut Butter Jelly Time

When you’re served a premium shot like this: Barack Obama campaigned earlier in Raleigh, North Carolina, principally relying on the closing-statement speech he unveiled in Ohio on Monday. Today, however, he added a new paragraph. “[B]ecause he knows his economic theories don’t work, he’s been spending these last few days calling me every name in …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. John McCain seems determined to delve the lowest levels of stupidity. Just when we think his campaign and his statements can’t get any more ridiculous, he finds a new motherlode of idiocy to mine: Economic growth may have fallen into negative territory*, but there’s at least one company that’s …

Yup. We’re Officially Scarier than Teh Gays and Teh Moozlims

I’m sure this is burning through the godlessphere, but fuck it, I’m throwing my hat into the ring anyway: Recent polling shows Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R) trailing in her re-election fight in North Carolina against Democrat Kay Hagan, so it stands to reason that she’s getting a little desperate. I didn’t think she’d get this …

Washington State Voting with Kitteh

Got me ballot. Got me Google. This is the brilliant thing about mail-in ballots: I can sit here and really scrutinize the bastard, make sure I’m not voting for something that’s all sizzle and no substance. Consider this Dana Hunter’s Official List of Endorsements for the 2008 Washington State Election. Righty-o. In order of appearance: …

PSTP Coming Soon

Just a quick update. For those who actually read them, there will be a new Press Start To Play next week. It’ll probably be a long one, so I may not include it in its entirety, or I may offer a download of the full article. Or I’ll just throw it all up there. We’ll …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. The right wing must be totally illiterate or unbelievably dishonest. There’s no other explanation for enormously stupid statements like this: Right-wing radio host Dennis Prager spoke before an audience of 3,000 at Minneapolis’ Orchestra Hall, during which he attacked the “left” for constructing “a grand edifice of lies about …

Jesus Wuz a Socialist!

Some inconvenient truths about Jesus: “From everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required; and from the one to whom much has been entrusted, even more will be demanded.” (Luke 12:48) Sounds like that dirty liberal Jesus was an anti-American socialist commie freak, doesn’t it? I hear he was also into giving …
