Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Remember how I said there was too much yummy stupidity to merely skim? I was ever so right. Prepare for a feast, my darlings. Cons’ little bubble of personal “reality” may be shrinking faster than most Americans’ bank accounts, but they’re still happily living the lie: Some opponents of …

Happy Hour Delay

Due to the vagaries of training and long calls, Happy Hour’s delayed today, my darlings. I’ll post as soon as I get home. From the brief glance I got at the political news, there’s just too much burning stupid for mere skimming. In the meantime, remember to get your COTEB submissions in to [email protected] Don’t …

I Should Say Something Witty, Profound and Insightful About Current Events…

Instead, I give you Boxing Kitteh: Because while my body came back from vacation, my desire to blog about serious shit is still loafing in the sunshine with a prickly pear vodka in its hand, that’s why. (And yes, the stuff is delish. If you’re ever in AZ, have some.) If it makes you feel …

Sarah Palin Word Salad Bar

I’m catching up on all the blog reading I missed whilst gallivanting around Arizona. I spent tonight on Canadian Cynic, where I came across the link to this exercise in agony. I feel so sorry for AKMuckraker, who actually subjected himself to 17 minutes’ worth of Palin. At least I got to pause and go …

Our Vulcan President

Ladies and gentlemen, the evidence that Barak Obama is, in fact, a Vulcan, despite his penchant for flashing beaming grins. Exhibit A, which is evident in his every speech and appearance, and thus needs no link: his preternatural calm. Exhibit B: His ability to flash a Vulcan salute. And Exhibit C: His response to inane …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Another day, another ridiculous hissy fit from the right: I guess it was obvious that there’d be a flap surrounding Nico Pitney’s question at the White House press conference this afternoon, but that doesn’t give this “story” merit. Here’s the latest: Some reporters and right wing bloggers are accusing …

Son of Expelled

Creationists lying to scientists in order to snooker them into appearing in a creationist “documentary”? It is Son of Expelled! Stand by for Bride of Expelled and Expelled 2: Electric Bugalloo, I’m sure.

Dems Start to Ask, “What Fucking Bipartisanship?”

This is good: Something fairly interesting happened today. It doesn’t mean we will get a public health insurance option to compete with the insurance industry, but it doesn’t exactly hurt. Apparently some Democrats thought that if they only watered down such a public option to nothing, they would get that vaunted bipartisan support, and everybody …

Stupidity Bombs Set to Go Off Among Troops

Ed Brayton’s exposing the uber-religious freaks positioning themselves to attack our armed forces from within: You probably don’t know who Jim Ammerman is. You should. He is the founder of an organization called the Chaplaincy of Full Gospel Churches (CFGC), which provides the official endorsements for 270 chaplains and chaplain candidates in the U.S. military …
