Fox sux

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

Mike Huckabee just told me on my TV that we should postpone the election by 4 or 5 days, to give McCain a chance to catch up. Or at least, have the Democrats vote then. Of course, Newt Gingrich had just worked a loonie-left jab into a somber declaration of respect for Obama’s grandma.

Interrogation Commodified

Sunday, August 31st, 2008

This item is seriously fucked up. I don’t know if it’s good or bad that it’s no longer available. They’re probably waiting for the new edition with the Gitmo revisions. In case it memory holes: Update: It’s back in stock…

Some of them had facemasks with the international symbol for “no” printed on them. Others took to lifting up their bikes or blowing air horns. Good times.

…South Dakota District 35. The fantasy: FRED DE SAM LAZARO: Napoli says most abortions are performed for what he calls “convenience.” He insists that exceptions can be made for rape or incest under the provision that protects the mother’s life. I asked him for a scenario in which an exception may be invoked. BILL NAPOLI: [...]

Oh, right, that makes perfect sense…

What a topsy-turvy world we live in. “The scriptures are crystal clear that when God sets out to punish a nation, it is with the sword. An IED is just a broken-up sword,” Phelps-Roper said. “Since that is his weapon of choice, our forum of choice has got to be a dead soldier’s funeral.” Yeah, [...]
