What he said

After I read this aloud to him:

oh, pleez

And expressed my opinion that this, clearly, is NOT what Glenn Beck wants, Rand replied:

“sure he does. he wants us scared shitless, and willing to do whatever the republicans tell us.”

Ron Howard talks about the election

I can’t believe that I haven’t seen this on any of the blogs I frequent, so I have to share it myself…

John Hodgman brings the funny

For those who may not know, John Hodgman is the PC in the Mac/PC ads. He’s also The Daily Show’s Resident Expert.

He’s on twitter, and his tweets totally make the debate bearable. Here are some examples:

Also, Sarah Palin really understands: snow. And also: glasses.

Legit question: did McCain actually speak to Joe the Plumber? Or did he just read about him on a blog?

McCain’s tears over the John Lewis comment sure are crocodiley.

Joe the Plumber is going to be McCains new VP

Someone’s been watching The American President

Lewis Rothschild: People want leadership. And in the absence of genuine leadership, they will listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone. They want leadership, Mr. President. They’re so thirsty for it, they’ll crawl through the desert toward a mirage, and when they discover there’s no water, they’ll drink the sand.

President Andrew Shepherd
: Lewis, we’ve had Presidents who were beloved who couldn’t find a coherent sentence with two hands and a flashlight. People don’t drink the sand ’cause they’re thirsty. They drink the sand ’cause they don’t know the difference.

I need to watch that movie again…

Yesterday in St. Marys…

tomorrow at Allegheny.

There’s only one explanation:

President Clinton is stalking me.



Clinton visits St. Marys

No, not Hillary.


I think my mom was going to go. I will update later. 😉

Scenes from my couch

Rand and I are watching The Daily Show, and the bit is about Barack Obama’s pastor. Cut to clips of various talking heads discussing the “scandal.” One of them says, “This is going to scare the white voters in Ohio and Missouri.”

Me: Snort. Scare the white voters.

Rand: If Jesus was his pastor, it would scare the white voters.

Me: *laughter*

Rand: An angry, hairy Jew screaming about the poor…

Me: *grab computer, post to blog*

Excuse me, I must vomit now.

So the apartment downstairs has been vacant for quite some time, and they’re just now readying it for new tenants…new appliances, carpet, paint, etc. This means people have been in and out downstairs, working on the apartment.

I just went down to the basement to put in some laundry, and the guys working have the radio on in the downstairs apartment. I could hear it quite well through the floor.

They were listening to Rush Limbaugh. I tried so very hard not to listen, but it was nearly impossible. He was going on about the Hummer actually requiring less energy than the Prius (I actually saw an article about that somewhere in teh intarwebs, but I don’t feel like going and looking for it), and then moved on to Al Gore. I’m not sure what he was yammering about at that point, as that was when I started the washer. I think my blood pressure escalates at the mere sound of that man’s voice.

I feel like I need another shower.


So I just popped over to Byzantium’s Shores, went to read the Salon article that he linked (Glenn Greenwald on Ann Coulter), and came across this comment:

Hey GirlyMen I thought being a GAY was supposed to be a good thing and all, least that’s what you liberal fools have been trying to sell America with your “gay marriage” and “gay rights” and “gay military” bs.

So Edwards should be proud, it’s just like being called a patriot or something, right?

You don’t like the “faggot” word? Gays use it so why can’t us normal people use it too? You think perverts got rights I don’t? Momma never teach you about fair play?

It’s just like blacks using the the n word then having hussey fits just cause some good white Americans say it. Jews got the same problem.

I say more White Power for Anne, a good blonde white American just exercising her free speech. But you Gays have a real problem with us Proud Americans having some rights don’t you?

That’s OK, we’ll take care of that real quick.

I desperately want to believe this was someone’s idea of a joke.

And on the topic of the post…Ann Coulter’s popularity both saddens and frightens me. Rand firmly believes she is a comedian and satirist of Andy Kaufman’s ilk. Even if she is, that doesn’t make me feel any better about her popularity. I don’t believe the vast majority of her readers/fans are hanging around because they think she’s funny. They’re hanging around because they agree with her message.
