I’m In Suzy Homemaker Mode. You All Get to Suffer.

No consensus has formed around my first choice in loveseat. That being so, I have quested further afield, and discovered a few interesting possibilities. Once again, your opinions are desired. I love this one for the style and the fact that it’s made by Simmons (screams comfort, doncha know), but being a smoker, I especially …

Crazier Than Worldnut Daily?

Compare and contrast time, my darlings. First, batshit insane: There’s been a little mini-tempest in Michigan lately over WOOD-TV 8 in Grand Rapids refusing to show an anti-gay film put out by the American Family Association. Naturally the Worldnutdaily has picked up on it. And their most recent story is rather amusing because they’ve now …

New Partisan Issue

Below: An eloquent comment on thedumbfuckery of Cons.There’s this place near Flagstaff, Arizona called Deer Farm. It’s basically a wildlife petting zoo, with a few domesticated but somewhat exotic animals thrown in.

Your Vote Counts

I’m shopping for a love seat. Found this one on clearance at Target: I mean, how cool is that? A love seat that converts into a bed fit for midgets! Or for someone who wants to spread out her laptop and writing crap in front of the teevee some night. What do you all think? …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. My darlings, I have a veritable banquet of stupid laid out before me, and I’m at a loss over where to begin. All of it just looks so tasty, and there’s only so much room. Why don’t we begin with the only smart thing Cons have done, then? Despite …

AP Reporter Fails to Comprehend English Sentences

Intrepid reporter Liz Sedoti must be auditioning for the Cons’ Opposite Day Award: In an AP piece today, she made the following seemingly alarming assertion about Obama’s alleged stance on Social Security: He said he would reinstitute a pay-as-you-go rule that calls for spending reductions to match increases and would shun what he said were …

Spending Cut Calculator – We Needs One

The always brilliant dday comes up with another brilliant point: One result of the budget mess being resolved here in California was a variety of tax increases (which were mostly flat or regressive and not all that good). The spending cuts were actually larger. However, in two of the weekend editions of the Los Angeles …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Well. Technically, yesterday’s, but why quibble? And yes, my darlings, Neil deGrasse Tyson is well worth the time spent. You are going to love this week’s Sunday Sensational Science. Put it like that. If he comes to your town and you have the opportunity to see him, but only …
