From the monthly archives: September 2007

I just read this on the Bowlesblog– a new, blogspot-hosted site written by John Taylor Bowles- the “white people’s candidate” from South Carolina?s Nazi Party.

I was just looking at the statistics for the campaign website and the numbers of people viewing the site have doubled within the last week.

It was posted yesterday, Saturday, September 29, 2007.

Funny thing. Exactly one week earlier, I
posted about Bowles
and his silly-ass party. And yes, I did include a link to his blog.

Could I have been responsible for this jump in traffic to this nutjob’s […]

Newt Gingrich announced today that he’s not going to run for president.

Too bad.

I’d love to see another popular Republican jump into the race and stir things up.

It reminded me of this great interview he did with Ali-G.

Big up yourself… Respek… for my man Newt Gingrich…

Jill has the scoop for all of you bloggers who are still in college.

Supposedly, one of the scholarships is going to a conservative/libertarian blogger- and the other is for anyone.

I love early 90’s hip-hop. Reminds me of my youth. Good times.

More great cheesy old nostalgic hip-hop videos after the jump.

Given Bill O’Reilly’s shocking claims that Sylvia’s is just like any white restaurant, The Daily Show decided to send Senior Black Correspondent Larry Wilmore to check it out for himself.

I wish I had an embeddable version of the video, but it’s worth the click-thru. You might just piss yourself laughing.

Catholic League Boycotts Miller Beer

On September 28, 2007 By

Fox news is reporting another one of their “Christianity Under Attack?” stories ( watch the video ) – this one is about the Catholic League’s urged national boycott of Miller Brewing Co.

The Catholic League is upset over Miller’s ties to a fair promoted in an ad that shows semi-nude men and women in bondage at a table with sex toys portraying Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” painting.

A Miller spokesperson responded:

While Miller has supported the Folsom Street Fair for several years, we take exception to the poster the organizing committee developed this year. […]

Hooker shortages.

Brothel owners in Bulgaria are blaming global warming for staff shortages.

They claim their best girls are working in ski resorts because a lack of snow has forced tourists to seek other pleasures.

Petra Nestorova, who runs an escort agency in Sofia, said: ‘We have hired students, but they are temps and nothing like our elite girls.’

NCLB = My Child Left Behind

On September 28, 2007 By

Someone My good friend and quite awesome blogger Joseph IM’d me this quote from Bush yesterday. Another classic example of how it is possible to have some sheepskin hanging, but still not have a fucking clue:

?As yesterday?s positive report card shows,? Bush said, ?childrens do learn when standards are high and results are measured.?

Here is something the President’s report card won’t show you and something he doesn’t want anyone to know. No Child Left Behind is engineered in such a way as to leave behind a group of kids you wouldn’t think we’d want to leave […]

Rush: “Phony soldiers”

On September 28, 2007 By

Rush Limbaugh called soldiers who oppose the war – like the two young men who wrote the NY Times editorial and then ended up KIA – “phony soldiers“. This is, without a doubt, objectively worse than calling Petraeus “Betray Us”. Of course, Rush called Sen. Hagel “Senator Betray Us” back in January.

Nearly 4 in 10 soldiers feel we never should have gone to Iraq. Are those people “phony soldiers”, Rush?

How anybody can stomach listening to that trash I’ll never know. Then again, somehow Bush still has about a 30% approval rating, so…

Tremendous ad campaign from Amnesty International in Switzerland cleverly inserting human suffering around the world into a billboard that blends seamlessly into it’s surroundings. A sample:

Those things are happening, right now, sharing this moment with you while you read this post.

There was a little disagreement this week between ModernEsquire and Jerid (BSB) and Matt (RAB) over the guaranteed right to counsel, at state expense if necessary, to all defendants in criminal cases.

Jerid argues it’s a right guaranteed by the constitution.

Matt disagrees, not surprisingly, with that interpretation of the constitution and argues that the state should not pay for legal counsel.

Jerid is in law school and therefore has a personal interest in seeing this activity continue.

While Matt hates spending tax dollars on anything besides fighting wars and funding for-profit charter schools.

So I […]
