'Mean Girl' Not a Smart Girl
Well, at least when we see her reading a book on screen we know she's really acting.
Some Atheists...assert that Atheism is not a religion but instead is the total absence of religion.... But this is like saying that "black," (which physicists define as the total absence of color) is not a color.... In common practice throughout the world, "black" is understood to be a color, despite the technical definition of the physicists. Likewise, "Atheism" is a religion, despite any technical definitions to the contrary. If black is a color, then Atheism is a religion.You hear it regularly from talking heads like Bill O'Reilly and Ann Coulter (whose latest 'book', Godless, is subtitled The Church of Liberalism), and you're only going to hear it more now that the War on ChristmasTM season is upon us: atheism is a religion just as sure as Christianity is, and all these heathens want to do is foist their religion on the good, god-fearing folk of America.
—Rev. Bill McGinnis, "The Religion of Atheism"
"All right... all right... but apart from better sanitation and medicine and education and irrigation and public health and roads and a freshwater system and baths and public order... what have the Romans done for us?"Once upon a time, Jesus said, "And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?" I'm pretty sure that's a fancy way of saying, "What, you think your shit doesn't stink?" It's a little snippet of scripture that every atheist should know.
"What!? Oh... Peace, yes... shut up!"
—Monty Python, The Life of Brian
Devotees of multiculturalism and political correctness who do not see how damaging to the fabric of American civilization it is to allow [Keith] Ellison to choose his own book need only imagine a racist elected to Congress. Would they allow him to choose Hitler's "Mein Kampf," the Nazis' bible, for his oath? (my emphasis)Because the fabric of American society is Christian and only Christian and why don't all you Muslims and Jews and atheists just get the hell out of our sacred nation, the fabric of which has nothing whatsoever to do with people of all different backgrounds living together in mutual respect!
British police investigating the death of former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko on Monday said traces of a deadly radioactive substance had been found at the offices of influential exiled billionaire Boris Berezovsky.According to the Deutsche Presse-Agentur article, Berezovsky is a "Russian tycoon who became a bitter critic and enemy of President Vladimir Putin".
A passenger raised concerns about the imams—three of whom said their normal evening prayers in the airport terminal before boarding the Phoenix-bound plane, according to one—through a note passed to a flight attendant...US Airways refused to put the men on another flight. They were not arrested and no evidence of any wrongdoing has been produced. Basically, the airline caved in to the ignorance and bigotry of its passengers. It's a great day for America.
The US government has tweaked its terminology in referring to the nearly 11 million Americans who face a constant struggle with hunger to refer to them as people with "very low food security."Presto! No more hunger. There's also talk of creating the Congressional Super-Acquisition Initiative, which will do away with corrupt politicians and create a new breed of "influence-rich" lawmakers in their stead. Bush can then relaunch Lyndon Johnson's War on Funds Insecurity.
Fifty years ago we'd have you upside down with a f***ing fork up your ass....Grotesque. Too bad Richards doesn't really work any more, since that makes him much harder to boycott. I guess I'll avoid seeing Cat Tale, an animated film for which Richards provides a voice, slated for a 2008 release. Not that I would have gone anyway... If they have any sense, they'll fire his racist ass.
You can talk, you can talk, you're brave now motherf**ker. Throw his ass out. He's a nigger! He's a nigger! He's a nigger! A nigger, look, there's a nigger!
Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?—Johnny Rotten
The elections and Rumsfeld's resignation were a major event, but not the end of the world. The war on terror goes on without interruption [hooray!! -ed].... Let's be on the lookout for any statements from the Iraqi insurgents, who must be thrilled at the prospect of a Dem-controlled congress.And 'Rusty Shackleford' complains that Jon Stewart "slanders" FOX News. I don't know much, but I do know that it ain't slander if it's true.
Remember the "Rush room"? In the back of restaurants we gathered to listen to talk radio in a safe atmosphere away from the politically correct ears of our social betters.Sounds grand. Such frisson isn't allowed for liberals however, because, well, they're wrong. And evil. And Jon Stewart is their master.
Rush emboldened us. He made us feel like we weren't alone.
Democratic voters are all morons brainwashed by this bad, bad man.
But one phenomenon has been overlooked. One which I believe was a key if not the key to a Democratic victory. That is the phenomenon of faux news. And Jon Stewart is its banner bearer.True. American voters had nothing to be upset about. There were no substantive issues more important than Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. None.
While Jon Stewart may attempt to play the non-partisan comedian, he fails miserably. His viewers are all too aware of his Democratic partisanship and liberal leanings. He explicitly endorsed John Kerry in 2004 during an interview with the presidential candidate. Conservatives are lampoon [sic] for being conservative, liberals for not being liberal enough.This is not a criticism of Dan Rather or any other member of the dreaded mainstream media, mind you; this is a comedian on basic cable. Apparently he has a responsibility to journalistic integrity even though he's not a journalist! Are cast members of ER required to take the Hippocratic Oath? Is Tim Allen really Santa? Jon Stewart has one responsibility and one responsibility only: to be funny.
One of the most important ways this bias comes out on The Daily Show is the constant slander of Fox News.... It's likely that many college students did not like Fox News before they became faux news junkies. But The Daily Show gives them the confidence to voice those opinions. It empowers them.
Scientists announced Monday that they have developed a high-tech T-shirt that turns the strumming of an air guitar into music.The march of progress never ceases.
The T-shirt has motion sensors built into its elbows that pick up the wearer's arm motions and relay them wirelessly to a computer which interprets them as guitar riffs...
I agree with, and ultimately take responsibility for, the end decision not to jeopardize the safety of the fans, the crews, the bands and myself as a result of the methods of these particularly draconian authorities.It wasn't immediately clear how a sober Gn'R would "jeopardize the safety of the fans". It's probably because a clear-headed Axl might remember the whole piano part to "November Rain", and that wouldn't be good for anyone.
I feel liberated, and I'm going to tell you as plainly as I can why. I no longer am going to have to carry the water for people who I don't think deserve having their water carried.—Rush Limbaugh, practicing broadcast 'excellence' on Wednesday's show.
At the risk of committing apostasy, last night's defeat is good not only for our party but more importantly for our ideas and ideals. Those ideas and ideals have for too long taken a backseat to other less noble concerns. New leadership must emerge, leadership that understands our principles, can articulate them, and will not abandon them. A long overdue reckoning must now begin.And there are others on the right taking their lumps today instead of bitching and moaning. Sure, they had months to prepare their scripts, but even so, the left wing might *gasp* actually have something to learn from their opponents.
Is Dickey sorta...kinda...almost...but..not quite...tacitly implying that he'd like to see Republicans hanged? Because that seems to be the obvious inference in stringing those last three sentences together. I suppose that's why he—or his editor—titled it "Hanging Judgments".Driscoll titles his post, "Is Newsweek Implying What I Think They Are?"
"Who Shit My Pants?": The Official GOP Guide to Assigning BlameHere's a little taste:
4) An underage Congressional page accuses you of sending lewd instant messages and e-mails.You can read this and other consistently funny posts here.
Who is to blame?....
b) Alcohol, for messing up your motor skills and causing you to drop the "Y" from your intended message, "R U HARDY?"
Crashing the stage as winners Justice and Simian collected their silverwear [sic] for "We Are Your Friends", the hip hop star spat, "F*ck dis! (My video) cost a million dollars, Pamela Anderson was in it, I was jumping across canyons [not a reference to Pamela Anderson's breasts, -ed.] and sh*t! If I don't win, the awards show loses credibility. Nothing against you (J&S), but hell man."Yes, he did just use the word "credibility" in reference to an MTV video awards show. It looks like, with Axl Rose in semi-permanent-maybe-retirement, someone has finally stepped in to fill the batshit crazy egomaniac vacuum in the music world. It's about time!
That is complete bullsh*t, I paid a million. Obviously it's not all about the money, but the response it got transcended everything, it really made great TV. It took a month to film; I stood on a mountain [also not a reference to Pamela Anderson's breasts, -ed.]; I flew a heliocopter [sic] over Vegas. I did it to be the king of all videos and I wanted to walk home with that award.... Please press people print 'Kanye says f*ck that!'Perhaps he can console himself with his millions and millions of dollars.
