What Has Obama Done?

There’s been a fun bit of leftist propaganda floating about the internets in the form of a website that purports to outline the wonders of just what Obama has done to save the world. Brian Doherty at Reason Magazine has caught sight of this fun little site and commented upon it: Read the rest of this entry »

Apples and Oranges

Eugene Volokh at the Volokh Conspiracy asks why we shouldn’t compare apples to oranges:

We compare apples and oranges all the time! We compare them by price, by how much we like the taste, by likely sweetness and ripeness, by how well they’ll go in a tasty fruit cocktail, and so on. In fact, every time we go to the store and buy apples rather than oranges — or vice versa — we are necessarily (if implicitly) comparing apples and oranges.

I hereby move that the phrase be changed to reflect two items that really are radically dissimilar — say, “comparing apples and democracy,” or “comparing oranges and the multiplication table.” All in favor, say “aye”; all opposed, say “nay”; motion carried. It’s Now Official; use them in good health.

Well, he has gotten his wish, and the folks at Improbable Research have, in fact, compared apples to oranges, and found them to be quite similar: Read the rest of this entry »

First Contact Protocol

Eugene Volokh points us to some lulzworthy advice for the event that you and you alone happen to be the person who first makes contact with extraterrestrials. (Big image file below the fold …) Read the rest of this entry »

KKK Disavows Fred Phelps

It’s pretty bad when even the Ku Klan Klan takes steps to distance themselves from your little hatefest, isn’t it?

Jolonan from Reflections from a Murky Pond relays this precious tidbit of irony:

You know – or should know – it’s bad when even the Ku Klux Klan feels the need to publicly repudiate your behavior, and that is exactly the situation in which Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church find themselves in. Read the rest of this entry »

The Last Nickel

Some lulz from PoliGrrl:

A young father walks into a restaurant with his five year old son.. He gives the young boy 3 nickels to play with to keep him occupied. Suddenly, the boy starts choking, immediately going blue in the face. The father immediately realizes the boy has swallowed the nickels and starts slapping him on the back..

Do a Topeka Search on Google, KS

When Topeka mayor Bill Bunten decided to unofficially change the name of Topeka to Google, KS in the most public display of brown-nosing I’ve ever seen, I called him an idiot.

Well, I suppose and publicity is good publicity and all that, and it appears that for April Fool’s Day this year, the folks at Google have decided to prove that are bigger idiots than the mayor of Topeka.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper Loses Jeapordy Match Against Cheech Marin

Just for the lulz, I suspect, I shall post this. From Newsbusters:

Although he did far better than his colleagues Wolf Blitzer and Soledad O’Brien, CNN’s Anderson Cooper actually lost to famed pot smoker Cheech Marin on Celebrity Jeopary Thursday.

“That’s right, I lost to Cheech Marin,” Cooper told his 360 viewers last night.

“Cheech of ‘Cheech and Chong’ fame, pot-smoking star of blunt-burning films like ‘Up in Smoke,’ ‘Next Smoke’ and ‘Still Smoking,'” the CNN host continued.

“He not only beat me; he crushed me” (video embedded below the fold with transcript and commentary):

I’m not sure if it actually says anything about the intelligence of Anderson Cooper, but it certainly says a lot about the tendency to underestimate the intelligence of people who smoke pot.

MSNBC Finally Gets Ratings Boost

Nice Deb comments on the irony of how MSNBC’s latest insanity — an idiotic rant by host Dylan Ratigan about how the Tea Party is evil, racist, homophobic, eats babies, etc. — has massively increased the network’s visibility. At least on YouTube.

This is what’s so nice about YouTube; it allows you to view these mutants on MSNBC without ever having to tune into their station. Which I avoid doing at all costs.

The video clip of  Ratigan ranting insanely about the NAZI RACISTS at the tea parties went viral, and became the  Most Viewed News/Politics video of the day.  It even became the 26th most popular clip on YouTube as a whole.

Yes, the delicious irony. This clip has proven so popular, yet MSNBCs ratings continue to slide into the depths of Tartarus. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s a Trap!

The University of Mississippi has recently undertaken a  move to replace its mascot, Colonel Reb. Apparently the university has realized that associating itself with a figure tied so closely with the Confederacy and slavery is probably not smart from a PR perspective. So instead of a mascot that represented what most people see as an immoral cause that was a loss, Ole Miss is looking at a rebel figure that pioneered a noble cause, and won. Admiral Ackbar. No sh-kidding. And better yet, Lucasfilm has indicated they may allow the licensing. Read the rest of this entry »

Google, Kansas

With all due respect to the mayor of Topeka, good sir, you are an idiot.

Topeka Mayor Bill Bunten issued a proclamation on Monday stating that for the entire month of March, the capital city will be known as “Google, Kansas-The Capital City of Fiber Optics.”  It’s an effort to show Google that Topeka is interested in being a test city for the google fiber experiment.

Video at the link.
