Donde esta el bano, aqui!

So petty and stupid, you'd think his brother must have filled it out.

Jeb Bush identified himself as Hispanic on a 2009 voter-registration form in Florida, according to a copy of the document obtained by The New York Times. Needless to say, neither Bush nor his parents are Hispanic.

Ever since Plato's Retreat Closed, he's lost that "lovin' feeling" that even a mustache ride cannot recover...

Like the drunk asshole who has to cover the Righteous Brothers during karoke, John Bolton only knows one terrible song, and insists on performing it terribly...and constantly.

Y'know

Even McCarthy never demanded the Russians stop controlling Moscow.

Still hope...

The Eugene Jarecki will some day have a chance to do a six-part documentary on Dick Cheney called "The Shooter" wherein Cheney confesses to war crimes while replacing parts in his pacemaker.

But...

Did anyone ask him about a Grinder account?

He's been a U.S. senator for 12 years, and was a Congressman for eight more before that, but South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham says he has never sent an email.
And yes, you are right, that type of joke deservedly died about 2010.

Not a great source

Other than inspiring congressional investigations for at least the years 2013-2017, I don't really care much about Hillary Clinton's gmail account (unless it was Hotmail, then at least it would be funny).

But it is disturbing that the man who has spent the last decade defending the worst dictators on Earth is the source for her defense.

I think you are underestimating

I have a "cold fusion" level of outrage that is inexhaustible.

As Stewart did during the the Brian Williams affair, in which the NBC anchor was caught peddling a bogus war story, he urged viewers to put media scandals in perspective as more consequential lies emerge on the world stage.

"Here's the problem: World outrage supplies are finite, and if we spend so much of it on the fairly inconsequential status embellishments, our anger tanks could be empty when we need them most!" Stewart said.

Case in point: Reports that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahi may have knowingly misled the United Nations on Iran's capacity to produce nuclear weapons, contradicting Israel's own intelligence.
Still a good point...you know which one is going to get more media coverage...and it isn't the lie that could get people killed.

...and one of the leaders of the call?

Bill O'Reilly, undoubtedly.

He'll want to pretend to be there.

What?! No salted caramel?

Bring on the giant meteor part infinity.

Little Caesars has devised a brand new place to feed the public's obsession with bacon: wrapped around the pizza crust.

More specifically, 3 1/2 feet of bacon wrapped around the pizza crust.

Whoops

I suppose it is too much to expect other cultures to know all of our nation's taboos, but you'd think other than Canada and perhaps Mexico, there'd be enough cross-cultural pollination with the UK for them to be a bit more aware.

The ill-advised national campaign was meant to be "a series of planned events for children during a week-long break from school," the Hull Daily Mail reported.

It didn't take long for people to point out that the "Krispy Kreme Klub" abbreviation evoked the Ku Klux Klan once the donut chain posted the event on its Facebook page. The post was later deleted.
Well, considering it misspelled three consecutive common words, it really wasn't educational either.

If the photographic negative of this event occurred

You know how apeshit FoxNews would be right now.

An ongoing dispute over an apartment parking space may have led to the shooting deaths of three Muslim college students in North Carolina, but investigators are trying to determine if the killings could also have been hate-motivated, police said Wednesday.

Craig Stephen Hicks, 46, who turned himself in to the Chatham County Sheriff's Office, has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the fatal shootings Tuesday afternoon at an apartment building in Chapel Hill.

The victims, all shot in the head, were identified as Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23, and his wife, Yusor Mohammad, 21, of Chapel Hill, and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19, of Raleigh, police said. The two female victims were sisters.
 And, as always seems to be the case, what a loss.

Barakat, a second-year dental student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Yusor Mohammad were married in late December. They traveled to Turkey last year to provide free dental care to students, according to their friends' Facebook page.

Quite a day on the internet

When you have a three-way throwdown over who is a bigger asshole:

Guy who married Kim Kardasian, whining about someone being "less" talented...

versus

A "Battle of the Brain-Dead" where you may have actually out-viled Charley Manson.
 
versus

Another GOP bigot, blowing his big job within about 10 minutes of getting it.

Well that is certainly suspicious

Wow.

Draft of Arrest Request for Argentine President Found at Dead Prosecutor’s Home

A Party in which "reaching out" means having Rupert Murdoch pay a Black Guy money to humiliate himself

Because otherwise, they've got nothin':

In a series of Facebook posts obtained by ThinkProgress, the senior adviser for policy and communications to Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL) posted racial comments and endorsed gentrification of his neighborhood.

Benjamin Cole, a former Baptist pastor and energy industry spokesman, posted a series of videos and comments on October 13, 2013 mocking two African Americans outside his DC apartment. In the first, he compared them to animals escaping from the National Zoo engaged in “mating rituals.”

And in battling stereotypes let us not forget Mr. Cole looks EXACTLY like you are presently imaging.


And now Mr. Schock can go back to closing his eyes and pleasuring himself while thinking about Misses Patmore.

"WHO ATE ALL THE PIES!?"

Just wait until the Cricket World Cup with this guy!  People will suspect he'll eat the team from Bangladesh!




One thing that I learned during the Super Bowl

Owning a Nissan or a Toyota is reflective of being a good father.

Suck on that one Honda dads!

R.I.P.

One of my favorite authors, Colleen McCullough passed away.  Best known for "The Thorn Birds" (which I have not read) she was behind many excellent historical fiction works, including "Masters of Rome" series of which I am a big fan.

And yeah, considering she is one of the country's great treasures she deserved a much better obit than this.  Hard to believe from a Murdoch publication, huh?

I, and I alone, am calling it!

I guess this means, by posting this, I win.

...although I'm sure he did not know it was a game, and if he did, he did not understand the rules until the game was over and then said he knew the rules all along...and New York City sucks.

Followed by other faux self-catharsis.

I thought with the Cowboys eliminated Chris Christie wasn't going to the Super Bowl?

I did not see the SOTU last night...

Is the State of the Union, strong?

When did the President declare the Caliphate starts, today or with tomorrow's first call of the Muezzin?

Also, I believe FoxNews accurately reported that there are certain parts of the Chelsea District were their pundits cannot walk without a disguise.

Great moment in "bravery"

Oh kudos to the Obama Administration for proposing the types of tax reform that should have been proposed when the Democrats had majorities in Congress, as opposed to now when it's all a non-accomplishable stunt. 

The cornerstone of Obama's proposal will be a $500 "second earner" tax credit to boost the fortunes of families where both spouses work, a substantial expansion of the Child Tax Credit to $3,000 per child under five, the White House said on Saturday night ahead of his seventh annual address to the nation.

The president's plan will also call for closing the trust fund loophole and raising the top capital gains tax rate to 28 percent.
Closing tax loopholes on trust funds?   Why that's pure communism!

Bravo!

As I was saying

Only the biggest of douchebags demand a protest of people in order for the latter to prove they are not assholes.


Said the guy named after a complete whack-job

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has called the news this week of a possible 2016 run by Mitt Romney "the definition of insanity."

Tuesday, January 13, 2015

Shut the FUCK up!

The same people whining that "Muslims need to step up and start protesting radical Islam" are largely comprised of the the subset that think others sue people too often.

Demanding that OTHERS - who are not actually doing what you don't like -- do things to make YOU feel better about THEM is the ultimate douche move.

Well, hello there

Apparently I've gone more than three weeks without posting.

Oops.

Sorry.

Have been busy in my actual chosen profession and needed to focus on that less important thing.
