Crazy Christian Ladies Can Run, but They Can’t Hide

Heh. Never underestimate the power of the Woozle to expose to daylight what you’d rather hide. So much for trying to delete a shameful post. This will remain long after the cached page is gone. Janine from Farmington, who used to be Raani from Ft. Worth, tried to password-protect her blog to hide it from …

Precisely

This is not a political ad. It’s political art. And it’s funny, funny shit: There you go. Everything you needed to know to vote wisely. If this damned ad had come out last month, I could’ve just posted it and been done. Brilliant!

Proofreading’s for Elitists

Republicon political protestors: “We’ll spend a gawdawful amount of money to hire a plane, print a banner, and fly over an Obama rally, but we’ll be damned if we proofread first!” (MIAMI) As Michelle and Barack Obama took the stage at Bicentennial Park tonight, a plane flew over the event with a banner that read, …

Ancient Poetry: Drink Deep the Wine Dark Sea

Studying poetry in school felt like slow, merciless death. Those few weeks spent perusing the most insipid pap imaginable every year, tearing down the lines into rhyme, meter and all of the other technical detail, destroyed its power.

So how far will the slimy shits otherwise known as Republicon …

Friday Favorite Grandmother Memories

Obama’s grandmother may not make it to Election Day. He’s spending the next couple of days with her, and then sacrificing their last precious moments together so that America has a fighting chance at a future. “We’re all praying and we hope she does, but one of the things I want to make sure of …

Lies, Bigotry – and Extortion

The religious right has gotten so drunk on their own supposed power that they feel comfortable resorting to blatant blackmail to get their way: Apparently all’s fair when you’re trying to deny folks their rights. The letter from Yes on 8 came by certified mail, demanding at least $10,000. Jim Abbot knows exactly why he’s …

A Touch of Crass

These fuckheads have no shame: Republican strategist Brad Blakeman, responding to a question about how John McCain could square his opposition to wasteful spending with the RNC shelling out over $150,000 on clothes and accessories for Sarah Palin, said that the real outrage is Barack Obama “taking a 767 campaign plane to go visit Grandma.” …
