Amber sent me a link so some more Masculinist chest-beating over at someone named Jace’s weblog. It’s the “Retrosexual Code”!  Oh, my! Instructions on how to “Act Like a Man!” I responded in his comments, but let me reiterate here for good measure: Odd that for all of the chestbeating, guns and killing people (or […]

It might be time to take another look at that VHS copy of Blazing Saddles

They’re doing the Lord’s work over at the TPM café, keeping up with this stuff… Barack Obama’s efforts to reach out to evanglical Christians in preparation for his possible Presidential campaign is running into very stiff resistance from the Christian right.

Homeowner Lisa Jensen told The Associated Press on Monday that […]

David Horowitz, we’ve found your soul twin

From CNN: Iran’s hard-line president urged students Tuesday to push for a purge of liberal and secular university teachers, another sign of his determination to strengthen Islamic fundamentalism in the country.

Imagine an endless parade of witnesses offering […]

Oh, thank goodness…

The Ninja threat at UGA has been contained. ATF agents are always on alert for anything suspicious — including ninjas. Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearm agents, on campus Tuesday for Project Safe Neighborhoods training, detained a “suspicious individual” near the Georgia Center, University Police Chief Jimmy Williamson said. Jeremiah Ransom, a sophomore from Macon, was leaving […]
