Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. I’m enjoying the novelties of sitting around stuffing my face while consuming politics and dinosaur evolution. It’s nice to be nearly completely unpacked. I wish I’d had time to focus earlier in the week, because I apparently missed a mother lode of dumbfuckery. Rep. John Shimkus is the gift …

The Ineffable Idiocy of Cardinals

No, I’m not talking about Arizona’s football team, although I’ve never been impressed by them, either. No, not the birds, either – they seem relatively intelligent, although I’m sure there’s a few dumbshit ones out there. This is a cardinal of the religious variety, playing the hypocrite for all he’s worth: An American Cardinal, Daniel …

Heckuva Job, Bushie!

You know how when you break a glass in the kitchen, you still find little shards of glass months later, usually by stepping on them in the middle of the night? The aftermath of the Bush years will be much the same. I expect a lot more news like this in the coming months and …

The Problem With PZ’s Analogy

I’m finally catching up on Pharyngula, unpacking the bedroom be damned. I notice that he spanked Rep. John Shimkus for his “We can’t cut CO2 emissions – we’ll starve the plants!” and “God won’t let global warming destroy the earth!” idiocy. In doing so, he makes a comparison: However, please note: human beings aren’t plants …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. In moving news, settling in continues apace. The cat has finally discovered how to sit comfortably with her ma in the recliner. And after more hours of shopping than I care to think about, I have glorious silk curtains on order for the bedroom and a set of bookshelves …

Mitch McConnell Moans

Mitch McConnell seems a wee bit confused about what “bipartisanship” is: Boo hoo: “I must say I’m disappointed,” Senate Minority Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union. “After two months, the president has not governed in the middle as I had hoped he would. But it’s not too late. He’s …

Firebombing for the Lord

Aren’t these the same people who tell us that without Christianity, the country would descend into chaos, mayhem, and general bodily harm? Because it doesn’t look like their religion has kept them from engaging in all three: A few weeks ago, I interview Joann Bell on my radio show about her experiences when she filed …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. For once, let’s lead off with some smart rather than some stupid. This is one of the many reasons I love my former governor: Immigration is one issue we haven’t heard much about in the Obama Administration, for various reasons. But advocates have not stopped their push to take …

We Shall Soon Return to Our Regularly Scheduled Blogging

I just realized it’s Sunday. We’re supposed to have Sensational Science. But to give you an idea of how far my brain has shut down, I forgot what the time difference is between Washington and North Carolina, thus leaving my best friend twiddling his thumbs for an hour while I scampered here, there and everywhere …

Roland Burris Strikes Again

This man has watched too many movies: Roland Burris could prove that he’s not a liar, but then he’d have to … well, you know the rest: Sen. Roland Burris (D-IL) claims he has proof he never made an inconsistent statement about his appointment to the Senate, only he can’t show it to you. Are …
