I actually worry more about Velociraptors than I do about Catastrophic Man-Made Global Warming®.

“It means the Obama people are very organized,” said Iowa Democratic Chairman Scott Brennan. “They have been working very hard for these conventions.”
Brennan said turnout was heavy, with more than 13,000 activists showing up at conventions in the state’s 99 counties.
“Today, Iowa Democrats again turned out in large numbers to reject the failed Bush-McCain campaign and its policies,” said Brennan.
Stupid me…Here I thought Bush couldn’t run again. Brennan, Irish isn’t it? Seems like this one is a few kegs ahead of the Irish guy holiday Monday. Hey Brennan, outside of your college and university athletic teams, how many more Rev. Wrights do you have in your State?
The RFK remarks and mentions by The Messiah, twitter the hearts of the mesmerized.
Jim Jones did die but is walking among us once again. Jim is lucky though, I’ll come back as a street sign.
Gosh, I can just see him saying that to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. OK…HEAR him saying that. Happy now!
“All of the statements that have been the subject of controversy are ones that I vehemently condemn.” —Barack Obama
This seems to be the General Rule of Obama–if it’s going to damage him, he condemns it! And rejects and denounces. Vehemently! The Rule would seem to apply to all past and future controversial statements–his campaign could get that sentence printed up on little laminated cards and hand them out to reporters, or include them after the statements of all Obama surrogates, like those fine-print ‘void where prohibited’ waivers. “Condemned if controversial.”
Ant Loewenstein: Why I won’t be celebrating 60 years of Israel
The planet’s favourite self-loathing Jew yet again fellates the Palestinians. The best part is Marilyn Shepherd’s sad “…the motion ruined Rudd for me after he had got off to such a great start.”
Laila El-Haddad: The Gaza Genocide
An interestingly skewed look at the media reports of the Israel-Palestine dispute.
Irfan Yusuf: Performing Comedy Isn’t Funny
Aw, c’mon Irf. We know that’s not true. You give me plenty of laughs. By the way, congrats on taking Pluto’s place as the ninth planet in the Solar System.
Barack Obama: On My Faith and My Church
Obama claims “I believe that Americans will judge me not on the basis of what someone else said, but on the basis of who I am and what I believe in; on my values, judgment and experience to be President of the United States.”, well, Obama, that’s what we’re doing. He was your spiritual advisor for 20 years, therefore it’s reasonable for people to assume that you believe much of what he says.
Pavlov’s Cat: Is This Family Working?
It’s amazing how two people see the same information and come away with such different opinions…
Broken Left Leg: Alan Jones the Racist Tool
There are a couple of interesting points, but most of it is a rather funny mindless rant against a talkback presenter, who sees the situation around Sydney with a remarkable insight. Despite what Broken Left Leg thinks, it is not Alan Jones which causes the troubles around Sydney, it was these Muslims causing trouble and then allowing Alan Jones his opportunity to seize it as an issue. A worthwhile issue, in fact.
Left Writes: Incarceration: US Style
Damn those nasty oppressors for jailing criminals for infringing on the rights of others!
Well, I can think of a few ways to help Palestine out. What can you guys come up with?
Lenin’s Tomb: It fucks you up, your country
This guy’s whole argument is that capitalism drives parents to discipline their children and therefore capitalism is bad. Or something like that anyway. And therefore it’s capitalism’s fault when all children who were ever smacked turn into violent thugs. The ones who weren’t disciplined are, of course, perfect.
PostSecret: I Lied
It seems like someone feels guilty.
