Olbermann to Hannity: “You Are Now Unnecessary”

Keith Olbermann has pronounced Sean Hannity a superfluous piece of shit: Last night on Countdown, Olbermann announced that he was rescinding the offer to Hannity, and instead giving $10,000 to charity following radio host Erich “Mancow” Muller’s waterboarding attempt. Olbermann promised to donate to the charity Veterans of Valor, founded by Sgt. Klay South, who …

Frank PWNS Beck

Poor Glenn Beck. He’s had an awful week. First, the ladies on the View spanked his ass, which led to a bad case of the View Flu (which he tried to pass off, and I’m not kidding, as “the 24-hour swine flu”). Now he’s having another health crisis, because his little roving producer Griff Jenkins …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. We’re late today because, well, it’s a holiday weekend. Pretty slim pickings, alas. But you’ll be glad to know there’s a reason why you’ve seen so much Dick on your teevee: So, why has Dick Cheney been so desperate to hit the airwaves as part of his crusade against …

Torture Apologists on Parade: Flying Cow Edition

Unlike Sean Hannity, Mancow isn’t afraid to put his water where his mouth is. Alas, as he discovered, empirical evidence trumps ideology: On his radio show this morning, “conservative libertarian” talker Eric “Mancow” Muller set out to prove that waterboarding isn’t torture by having himself waterboarded. But instead, after enduring “6 or 7 seconds” of …

Perhaps It’ll Ask WolframAlpha Instead

A couple of years ago, I wrote a scene wherein Dusty, my FBI agent character, is given a Miraldian “PDA” – a semi-sentient little alien device that makes the iPhone look like an actual big dumb brick, and is only called a PDA by my Earthling characters because, well, people use old names for new …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Sorry we’re late, my darlings. Was out running errands, getting my hair cut, and fitting the cat with a harness. Hilarious pictures of a pissed-off feline on a bungee leash will no doubt follow in the next few days. You should have seen her dear little face when I …

Something to Keep in Mind

The next time someone yawps at you about the extraordinary accomplishments of the Bush regime, you might want to drop this little tidbit on them (h/t): Former Congresswoman and prosecutor Liz Holtzman makes a good point: The criminal justice system identified and convicted some of those involved in the 1993 World Trade Center attacks.

They, Too, Bravely Ran Away

David Broder’s latest atrocity column included this little gem: …Democrats really are isolated from the military. Harry Truman had been an artillery captain; John Kennedy and Carter, Navy officers. But Bill Clinton did everything possible to avoid the draft, and Obama, motivated as he was to public service, never gave a thought to volunteering for …
