Good Times Are For Hanging the Nigger

Saddam was a bad, bad man. Like any nigger, he was bad because he beat down on other niggers without permission, and gassed them and raped them, all by his lonesome. Such is the power of his nigger muslim penis. That's why it had to Be Destroyed. Did you have a good time, churchmouse, watching the slobber come out of his mouth, the blood run from his ass, did you listen to Toby Keith while his neck stretched? I hope you did.

We finally got the guy behind 9/11, right?

Dick Cheney, 1992:

And the question in my mind is how many additional American casualties is Saddam worth? And the answer is not very damned many.

We're #5! We're #5!


And how delicious that it's "Dean" Broder's name that's being blackened...

Not that there's anything wrong with that. Read more about We're #5! We're #5!

Cell Phone Horror Stories


I'm not even going to recount mine. I'm ready to kill or break something. deep breath But I'm pretty sure we've all had them. Is it just me, or are cell phones getting crappier with every new "upgrade?" Sure, it's great to play some music and take a photo with your phone, but it'd also be nice if they weren't as sensitive as an albino nun at an all-gender orgy in the Mojave desert. Four 1-800 calls, six crashed web pages, three stores and several "customer service" representatives later, I may be able to talk on the phone soon as next Wednesday.

Term of invective sought


Invective, but analytical! Always analytical!

This post from Atrios--who, pleasingly, doesn't seem to have changed one iota since the Dems won Congress--shows the difficulty:

Evolution and theodicy

One of the guilty pleasures of WaPo's new column on religious beliefs is watching Christianist shills get chewed on by the reality-based community. Read the comments section; it's delicious. Take Cal Thomas--please:

[I]f God is not the Author of life, then we are evolutionary accidents who may treat each other as we please.

Nonsense. Human capacities for good and evil both evolved in nature because they both had survival value. Read more about Evolution and theodicy

Ford and Nixon: BFFs

Ford pardoning Nixon was worse than a deal; it was a favor for a friend. Another emmbargoed scoop from court biographer "staff writer" Bob Woodward:

Months before Richard M. Nixon set a relatively unknown Michigan congressman named Gerald R. Ford on the path to the White House, Nixon turned to Ford, who called himself the embattled president's "only real friend," to get him out of trouble.

Far be it from me to play sock puppet...

Blog TV

There will be a show tonight on Sundance on blogs. 10p according to the website. I believe I was interviewed for this, I don't know if I made the final cut or not.
