Obama Goes Between Two Ferns

to discuss current events with Zach Galifianakis. It's funny and well worth the 6 minutes or so.


Startling Number of Scientific Papers Disputed Human-Caused Global Warming Last Year

How many exactly....One, one lousy paper out of 2258 peer reviewed articles.

The tally since 1991: Nearly 14,000 papers that supported human causes behind global warming (chiefly from burning fossil fuels over the past century), and just 24 that rejected human causes.

It's amazing what a well funded smear campaign by such luminary pieces of shit like the Koch brothers combined with GOP drones that will believe anything fed to them like pre-chewed pablum will do.


Most Deranged Sorority Email Ever

I needed a break from Boston so I spent some time in Gawker and came across this. I hope it hasn't been posted already.

It's sent by an executive of the Maryland chapter of Delta Gamma who's pissed at the chapter's inability to bond with their Greek Week matchup frat Sigma Nu. I've never gotten the draw of Greek life but man does this girl take it a little too seriously or what?

I saw it on Gawker first and then Alison Haislip does an incredible dramatic reading of the email on Youtube.

Language is definitely not suitable for work or those of with a sensitive disposition to such things.


on edit: OMG (said in sorority speak of course) this was post # 9,000.

Look at West, Texas on Google Maps


And try to figure out what kind of fucking idiot would allow a middle school, a high school, a playground, an old folks home, an apartment building and a couple of dozen homes within a block or two of a fucking fertilizer plant?

No matter how this plays out, this town was so lucky that the explosion happened when the schools weren't filled with kids.

Gotta love Texas, the land without all those onerous Government regulations that would keep people from building schools next to an explosive waiting to happen.

I Love Keyword Trash

no more Beyonce bullshit in my Latest Threads feed.

Thanks Elad!

Linda McMahon has spent

pretty much $100,000,000 over two Senate elections and has lost each of them by 12 percentage points.

If this is the kind of business acumen that typical republican idiots want in charge of Congress I seriously overestimated their intelligence... And I never really credited them with having IQ's much above comfortable room temperature to begin with.

I am really really happy to see the end, I hope, of the political career of Linda fucking McMahon.

Get a 2 pound bag of sugar

put most of it in a jar, cause you don't want to waste it, and just spill a bit of it on the ground underneath the assholes gas cap, like it spilled while you were doing something nefarious.

Then crumple up the empty bag and toss it on the ground.

Watch with a bunch of cold beer as the jackass freaks out about what "happened".

Funny from Canada: Rick Mercer Zip Lines

with the Federal NDP Leader of the Opposition Thomas Mulcair over Petty Harbour in Newfoundland and this looks like quite the zip line, 270 feet up and 1400 feet long. I wonder if Boehner, Cantor, McConnell or Romney would do this? I think Romney might but I'd pay serious money to see McConnell try it.

One thing I really missed about Canada was watching Rick Mercer on This Hour Has 22 Minutes. He could get any politician in the country to talk and make it both funny and informative. His rants were instant classics.

Virgil Goode Stays On Virginia Ballot

Ken Cuccinelli, the puke Attorney General in Virginia has said that Goode has enough valid signatures to stay on the ballot. The news sneaked by me on the weekly Friday news dump. You can bet the the pukes are tossing good ol' Ken under the bus pretty badly right now. It couldn't happen to a nicer asshole IMO.

Even though Romney and buddies have been pressuring him to boot Goode for any reason he decided to actually allow him to stay.


I was so sure that Cuccinelli would disqualify Goode for a spitting on the sidewalk citation back in high school that I bet a friend of mine a 1.5L bottle of Woodford Reserve Bourbon.

I lost the bet now I can only hope he lets me celebrate the Obama win in November with some WR Manhattans because I won't be able to buy my own Bourbon for awhile, that shit ain't cheap.

Mittster boxed himself in nicely now

He comes out with an ill-timed, idiotic comment last night way too early and then is surprised when it makes him look like a total buffoon. This morning he doubles down on the idiotic comment to the baffled stares of the press corps following his campaign around.

Why I think he's nicely boxed in:

He knows the comment was stupid, I'm sure someone with a bit of a sense of foreign policy has told him or more likely one of his butlers the reality of it but...

If he actually admitted that his first comment was the ill-timed bit of idiocy that it was he might be able to save a bit of face with the normals but most of them/us have already written him off as a fucking moron and foreign policy dilettante anyway. Actually saying "oops" though would enrage the wacko brigade that is the far right and who feed on anything that makes Obama look bad.

The far right wacko brigade that makes up the majority of the Republican party these days is the only thing keeping Romney in the game at all. If he pisses them off by admitting that an attack on Obama was wrong they're going to stay home and wax one of the cars on their front lawn downing Busch Lite instead of voting in November because they don't really trust his magic underwear religion in any case. That would hurt the down ballot far right Republicans that are the only hope for the party at this point and that's why you're seeing Mitch, the turtle, McConnell and John, the oompa-loompa, Boehner not too happy with him right now.

I love the smell of desperation coming off Romney, it's just as rank as that from McLame/Mooselini in 2008 when they "suspended" the campaign to work on the financial crisis.

Keep up the good work Mitt you fucking asshole.
