Republican traitors

No, silly, not the Republicans who voted to replace our Constitutional system of government with authoritarian rule by eliminating habeas corpus--

The Republicans who are siding with the Defeatocrats. Don't they understand that God is in the White House?

Today's Voting Lesson: Push the Freakin' Button!

Voting on the old dinosaur machines in Pennsylvania and other places had its flaws, but there was one part they made helpfully stupid-proof. After you pulled the little levers to register your vote in each race, you pulled a BIG lever that opened the curtain and allowed you out of the booth. That lever was what officially "cast" your votes into the little counters inside the machine. Very 1930s-ish technology but (unless the damn machine threw a shoe, or tossed a wire off a pulley which they were prone to do, trapping you inside and causing a hysterical call for a repairman) it worked.

Science for Republicans!

From Wikipedia, sharks gotta swim:

Due to their size and the nature of their metabolism, many sharks have a higher demand for oxygen than bony fishes and they cannot rely on ambient water currents to provide an adequate supply of oxygenated water. If these sharks were to stop swimming, the water circulation would drop below the level necessary for respiration and the animal would suffocate. The process of ensuring an adequate flow of the gills by forward movement is known as ram ventilation.

Song For Buster's Face

Vinyl Shoes

Every one of us in front
Looking for what's next to come
Who is driving, who's in charge?
Is it all just river-run?

Something lays upon the tracks
Cannot tell if it can move
Train is coming down so fast
Like a needle in the groove

He's got a version of the now Infamous List up, you remember, the one some gay activists have been sending to all kinds of fundie and winger groups, reminding them how many of the heroes in the hallowed halls are faggots?
