A half-assed – but still valid – reason to vote for McCain .. because stuff like this is creepy and verging on evil. The idea of a bunch of tots singing praises of the Dear Leader needs to be mocked until the adults in the room sheepisly admit that, yes, it’s really dumb to idolize… More »
Your representatives heard you when you demanded affordable housing, they heard you when you insisted that the programs were fine, and they have heard you when you insisted that Wall Street pay for it all by melting into a puddle of slag. Yes, I know: simplistic. Also not everyone demanded all of that. Still, this… More »
Real life provides better lines than fiction ever will. Senator McCain: Long ramble about service, sacrifice, the suckitude of defeat. Senator Obama: “Jim, let me just make a point. I’ve got a bracelet too. From, Sergeant, uh, uh, from the mother of, uh, Sergeant, Ryan David Jopek.” He certainly does appear to be looking at… More »
Last night during the debate, Senator Obama said: The third thing we have to do is we’ve got to make sure that we’re competing in education. We’ve got to invest in science and technology. China had a space launch and a space walk. We’ve got to make sure that our children are keeping pace in… More »
Paul Newman has passed away at age 83. Cancer. Not only will we remember him for those deep blue eyes that any red-blooded woman could get lost in forever, but for his faithfulness to Joanne Woodward, his wife since 1958. Playboy magazine asked him one time if he was ever tempted to stray. His reply:… More »
That is just what it was, when the building which is the premier landmark in San Antonio – and perhaps all of the rest of Texas – first achieved fame immortal, in the short and bloody space of an hour and a half, just before sunrise on a chill spring morning in 1836. People who… More »
I’m SHOCKED, shocked I tell you… Other things I’m shocked about: Senator Barack Obama is black. Senator John McCain is white. Governor Sarah Palin is hot. Senator Joe Biden’s mouth moves faster than his brain. 700 billion dollars could possibly be spent on better things than bailing out rich guys who don’t know when to… More »
We warned him: The Palin-Rove machine will not tolerate dissent. He stepped up with courage and love for his country. And now … the moose is gone but the message will live on. From. Cross posted to Space For Commerce.
The Army tasks a brigade with a Homeland Security Mission. Paul Watson – and 190 commentors- promptly freak the f*** out and get their panties in a collective twist: Ominously, the report states that, “The 1st BCT’s soldiers also will learn how to use “the first ever nonlethal package that the Army has fielded,” 1st… More »
Professor Larry Sabato on what happens if the electoral college is tied, throwing the contest to the House. Summary: it’s going to be a rannygazoo bigger than a three-ring circus featuring Siamese elephants joined at the trunk and a three-legged ringmaster. And an international embarrassment. I don’t get that last. What in the world is… More »
Senator Obama: We’re for clean coal – it rocks. Senator Biden: We sure are and it does! What’s that sweetie? Oh wait, you’re a Green? Aw man. Coal is the E-vil. It’s bad. Seriously. You just know the guys running the war room at Obama for President’s Global Headquarters cringe when they watch ol’ Loose… More »
Here we sit in a branchy row, thinking of beautiful things we know; Dreaming of deeds that we mean to do, all complete, in a minute or two— Something noble and wise and good, done by merely wishing we could… In following the current twists and turns of the current election season, with particular attention… More »
She’s just so wonderfully weird.
Happy Birthday Bilbo, where-ever you are.
I finally got around to playing with the iTunes Genius feature last night. Basically, you pick a song from your library, Apple then recommends new music from their store which will go good with it. I mostly ignore this part, because it mostly recommends music I already own, although I may not have purchased it… More »
I had no idea that the Cowboys had so many large holes playing for them on the offensive line. ‘I looked up and .. I saw a hole. And I stopped for a second – I didn’t know we had any of those playing for us.‘ Good job, Cowboys. Packers … well y’all showed up… More »
These last few weeks, I’ve been in the process of wrapping up the final loose ends of the Adelsverein Trilogy. The cover for it will be done when the cover artist comes back from vacation, and my prospective-hopeful-maybe employer is going over the final draft with a fine toothed comb. She edits for a living,… More »
We’ve committed to a re-commitment ceremony. We’ve settled on a style that fits us, the monkeys are thrilled with the formal wear we’ve settled on .. Kilts! And bagpipes! That’s my daughter. She is fifteen. Oh … my … gawd you people are freaks! I’m the only normal person here! Phht: Kilts are cool. And… More »

A running gag at Tim Blair’s blog over the last five years or so has been reports of the appearance of the eternal bird in the dribblings of various writers, entertainers and columnists.

If You Like Michigan’s Economy, You’ll Love Obama’s Mr. McCain will lower taxes. Mr. Obama will raise them, especially on small businesses. To understand why, you need to know something about the “infamous” top 1% of income tax filers: In order to avoid high corporate tax rates and the double taxation of dividends, small business… More »
My mom spent my entire lifetime taking family pictures. And we have photo album after photo album filled with pictures of people missing either their heads or their feet. Finally, in the early 90s, my mom invested a couple hundred dollars in a 35mm point & shoot camera (most money she ever spent on a… More »
Just watched the encore presentation of the first episode. And if I’m not mistaken, Doll House will be on Fox as well. Why is Fox doing better SciFi than The SciFi Channel?
OK, so I laughed so hard at this I almost shot chardonnay out of my nose… Courtesy of Rantburg, my source for all things sarcastic and political. Later – this interesting Youtube version of a certain Disney movie. Watch it quick, before the Mouse Kingdom begins carrying on about copyright infringement… (also courtesty of Rantburg…… More »
Looks like the cartoonist should have added another wolf named “Air America.” Or maybe a coyote/jackal would have been a better critter choice for that. h/t Baldilocks for the cartoon, Hot Air for the additional wolf name.
