HL Mencken's dispatches from the Scopes Trial


Let no one mistake it for comedy, farcical though it may be in all its details. It serves notice on the country that Neanderthal man is organizing in these forlorn backwaters of the land, led by a fanatic, rid of sense and devoid of conscience. Tennessee, challenging him too timorously and too late, now sees its courts converted into camp meetings and its Bill of Rights made a mock of by its sworn officers of the law. There are other States that had better look to their arsenals before the Hun is at their gates.

I hope the Kim Davis movie is a musical


If you liked Inherit The Wind, the actual Scopes Trial was one of the great media circuses of all time.

But this one doesn't really fit the dramatic mood of Inherit The Wind.

A musical would be epic. Sort of like Godspell meets Best Little Whorehouse In Texas.

WTF is the deal with Saudi King Salmon?


I didn't even know we imported seafood from Saudi in the first place, but... King Salmon?

I mean, good golly, he was just up in Alaska, and look what the King Salmon did to him there:



They could have loaded up Air Force One with all the King Salmon they wanted. I see no reason to be making such a big deal about importing them from a place that doesn't even have rivers.

"What law has Kim Davis broken?"


I've been seeing that question quite a bit on Twitter from idiots.

If your favorite idiot has asked that question, the answer is:

42 U.S.C. 1983

If they want to know specifically how she broke that law, the manner in which she did so is described in detail here:

There, they can also find the law on which jurisdiction by the court is premised, the law she has violated, and the law under which the court can order her to stop violating it or hold her in contempt.

It is a desperately stupid question.

The apple didn't fall far from the tree, but it sure must've landed pretty hard on its head.

BREAKING: THE JUDGE HAS ISSUED A DECISION!


Tom Brady will be allowed to play.

Kim Davis (KY bigot clerk): "Im just a vessel God has chosen for this time and this place"

FDR was clearly out of touch with common people and should not have been elected


Looking back at the FDR's presidency, it can clearly be seen that he was not a good choice to represent the interests of the common man.

When the country looked like this:



FDR was living in this house:



On this estate:



And living like this:

Lawrence O'Donnell - 1.8 seconds to Trump


Chris Hayes broke the record with an actual 0 seconds to Trump.

Rachel went an amazing 49.6 seconds to Trump. But that's only because of her usual indirect windup.
