"A moment I've been dreading. George brought his ne're-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida. The one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work."
-- Ronald Reagan in his recently published diaries, May 17, 1986
Rigoberta Menchú was recently thrown out of Cancun's 5 star Hotel Coral Beach. They thought the Noble Peace Prize winner was a bag lady.
One IS the lonelist number when you're all alone, as Tom Tancredo was, at the NAACP GOP Presidential Candidate Forum.
9 great old school punk videos.
Read this. It's by Philip Atkinson from theFamily Security Foundation. This is the killer (no pun intended) paragraph: 'The wisest course would have been for President Bush to use his nuclear weapons to slaughter Iraqis until they complied with his demands, or until they were all dead. Then there would be little risk or expense and no American army would be left exposed. But if he did this, his cowardly electorate would have instantly ended his term of office, if not his freedom or his life.' Oh. My. God. And this guy has a voice? People LISTEN to him?! Amazing.
Way to go Alabama! You can buy a gun on the street corners, but if you'd like a vibrator, you know, for pleasure - you've got to cross state lines! Violence, not sex, people. Indeed.
I got this from over at A Different Kitchen. "A group of concerned East Harlem parents are calling on the New York Yankees and Major League Baseball to stop selling hats from a cap manufacturer that adds gang colors and symbols to some of their wares."
From Satirical Political. It would oh so much funnier if it wasn't true...
OK. From the L.A. Times comes this story about 'Freedom Packages" making their way to our troops. Not filled with useful things like say... armored vests or anything. Nope. These were put together by a fundamentalist Christian ministry called Operation Straight Up, or OSU. You know who's in this ministry? Stephen Baldwin. Seriously. The packages are filled with bibles, proselytizing material in English and Arabic and until the DOD said no deal - copies of the video game Left Behind:Eternal Forces in which "soldiers for Christ" hunt down enemies who look suspiciously like U.N. peacekeepers. Excellent. Soemtimes I have no words, just strangled sounds and a red face. Ugggghhhh.
This is a clip of Ted Nugent (he's still alive?!) cursing out Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Boxer(!) and Dianne Feinstein(!)
