Rant of the Week

HuffPo’s Jason Linkins puts the Smack-o-Matic 3000 with optional Sarcasm Boost. I had to share with you all. Stupid statement: Via Media Monitor LaRay B., comes video of a segment between Phil Musser and Lawrence O’Donnell, hosted by Norah O’Donnell on MSNBC.

The Necessity of Knowledge

It’s cliché time at the cantina, my darlings, because I want to talk about a simple truth: knowledge is power. In observing politics and religion, you soon notice a distinct abundance of stupidity. And I call it stupidity, not ignorance, because refusing knowledge is stupid. Everyone at times refuses knowledge, but some people raise it …

The Stalker Becomes the Stalked

Isn’t it fun to see Bill O’s attack dog getting a hefty dose of his own medicine? Gawker has some questions for Jesse B. Watters, the Fox News producer that Bill O’Reilly likes to send out to ambush his enemies. So we’re outside his building in Long Island. Right now. (Hi, Jesse!) [snip] If you …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Congratulations Rep. Scott Murphy! Norm Coleman take note: when the votes don’t go your way, it’s generally a good idea to gracefully concede. There are times when I seriously wonder if the Cons are ingesting some sort of toxins that cause acute stupidity, insanity and hypocrisy. Today’s one of …

Woozle and Mike Debate Thread

It’s a banner day, my darlings. This is the first time on this blog that a thread’s filled up to the point where it has to be closed and a new one opened. They’ve requested a new forum, and their wish is my command. Of course, I’m sure neither of them will object if anyone …

Poem o’ the Day

Every once in a while, synchronicity happens. I’ve got a scene coalescing in my head for this current story, in which the stark contrasts between beauty and horror come up. My folks are warriors. They see the worst. But they’ve also seen extraordinary beauty, which just about makes the ugliness they have to deal with …

Bashing Bill

It’s Friday. It’s time to have some fun. And Bill O’Reilly’s just begging for a beating. I mean, check out what his producer’s been up to lately: It’s no secret that Fox News host Bill O’Reilly can’t stand MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann. In fact, when a caller into his radio show had the gall to mention …

What the Hell’s Wrong with Texas?

All right, my darlings from Texas, clue me in: what the fuck is wrong with the people in your state? First we have all these idiots running around yawping about secession: Last week, a statewide poll in Texas found that 75% of Texans would like to see their state remain in the U.S., while 18% …
