Stewart destroyed McCain.

Stewart did a great job here, but in reality McCain destroyed McCain with Palin. He just hasn’t figured it out yet.

Tech question; where are these videos embedded from? I used to be able to watch vids on this site (shitty Dell office computer), but in the past few weeks all I see is a blank screen with a little circular loading icon that never loads anything. Are they directly off Comedy Central’s site?

For any kind of criticism of John McCain to have any effectaffect on him, he’d have to have a conscience. And one thing John McCain has gone through great pains to demonstrate since 2008 over anything else, is the complete absence of a conscience.

Fuck…I hate when I do that.

I think you were right the first time. Effect is the noun, affect is the verb.*

* Exceptions, of course, apply, but this is a good rule of thumb.

A handy reminder. I had to look this up recently because my adviser didn’t like my use of the word “impact” and wanted me to use “effect” which I had been avoiding because of this reason.

Gohmert: Voters need ‘at least 50 rounds’ in magazines to take out drones

During Thursday interview on Freedom 107 radio, host Jeff Akin asked the Texas Republican how he felt about using unnamed aerial drones for domestic law enforcement.

“It’s pretty offensive to most of us,” Gohmert opined. “Most of us think if you’re going to use a drone and fly over our homes to analyze what’s going on in our backyard — not a lot of talk’s been given — but if you can fly over in the backyard, you can use all kinds of technology to see what’s happening inside the home as well. And I know there’s been a judge, and this former judge sure thinks you ought to have a warrant to do that kind of thing.”

“But I had somebody last week in Washington from either Georgia or Alabama that was saying, ‘Look, this goes back to we have got to have at least 50 rounds in our magazines because on average that’s about how many it takes to bring down a drone.’ I hope he was kidding, I don’t know for sure.”

I’ve ended up with mixed feelings about it because my grandfather described himself first and foremost as a patriot, where you define patriot as love for your country. He served in the military for 20 years, civil service for 20 more. Two wars. I truly believe that he really believed in the ideals of America and was willing to put his life on the line for them.

But he was also very Republican, with all that entails. We didn’t talk politics much (or religion) because I enjoyed actually being able to talk to my grandparents.

He died on July 4th three years ago this year. It seems rather fitting.

Mississippi Newspaper Defends Publishing Story About ‘Historic’ Same-Sex Wedding

Many of the calls I received had the caller stating something to the effect, “I don’t need my children to read this.” Ugh. We have stories about child molesters, murders and all kinds of vicious, barbaric acts of evil committed by heinous criminals on our front page and yet we never receive a call from anyone saying, “I don’t need my child reading this.” Never. Ever. However, a story about two women exchanging marriage vows and we get swamped with people worried about their children. […]

You have a right to believe whatever you want. We weren’t trying to change your mind about that. We were simply reporting the story to the best of our ability. We are also happy to report the other side, too. We have run numerous letters that have attacked gay marriage in the LL-C since that story ran.

However, I can’t help but be saddened by the hate-filled, viciousness of many of the comments directed toward our staff.

Soledad O’Brien To Leave CNN Morning Show

CNN host Soledad O’Brien will leave her morning show at the network this spring to create a new production company, the New York Times reported Thursday.

All this talk about the GOP on the verge of fracturing or extinction makes my eyes bleed. It’s like everyone’s forgotten 2010. I fully expect the GOP to make a bit of a comeback in 2014, more so if the economy is still flat.

Mainly the American voter is so uninformed that there willing to overlook how radical Republicans have become.

The polls we see would be great…if the election polls reflected them. As is, I full expect half, if not more of those in that 66% who agree with Obama won’t even bother showing up at the polls come next year.

Need something to make the chicken nuggets. Which I imagine is all that would be left if you shot a chicken with an AR-15.

The Morning Plum: On issues, GOP is badly out of step with America

No, you don’t get it: America is badly out of step with the GOP.

We don’t deserve a party that cares so much for America that it is willing to ignore a majority of its voters to maintain its ideological purity.

Rohrabacher’s interest in Afghanistan extends back at least to the late 80s, before his time in office, when he entered the country in the company of mujahedin fighters who were intent on confronting Soviet occupation forces. Reportedly, these fighters “actually engaged Soviet troops in combat near the city of Jalalabad during the two months Rohrabacher was with them.”[25] According to eyewitnesses during this time he met Osama Bin Laden, his Arab fighters and also the homicidal terrorist, Afghan mujahideen leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. He called them “great freedom fighters and his friends, who are fighting the same war as America to liberate world from the “fatal plague of communism”.

….Yeah, did so much to help defeat…wait..what…

To hold, therefore, that there is no difference in matters of religion between forms that are unlike each other, and even contrary to each other, most clearly leads in the end to the rejection of all religion in both theory and practice. And this is the same thing as atheism, however it may differ from it in name. [Pope Leo XIII, Immortale Dei, 1885]

re: #50 Dr. Matt

For people who constantly proclaim themselves to be “Patriots”, conservatives sure spend a hell of a lot of time fantasizing about killing fellow Americans and having an armed civil war.

Funny how we don’t call the secesh of 1861-1865 “Patriots.” We call them “Losers.”

New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
Ben Mathis-Lilley, Slate: New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Instead of pushing for a Constitutional amendment, which would have to be ratified in 38 states, advocates ask individual state legislatures to pass an agreement: that they'll pledge all their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote as soon as enough other states pass the law to ...

These 5 Countries Are Crushing the Whole Gender Equality Thing at Home
When looking at this data, it's important to remember that gender equality isn't just about women working more paid hours or doing less housework. It's also about men cutting back their work hours to pitch in more around the house. Countries that have lighter workweeks, in fact, tend to have a more equal distribution between men and women in the home. The OECD ...

When Evangelicals Were Pro-Choice - GOPlifer
Jamelle Bouie had a great piece at Slate last week explaining the long strange journey of Protestant Evangelicals from pressing for the expansion of abortion rights to vehement opposition to nearly every aspect of women's reproductive choices. Bouie correctly identifies the trend, but he misses an important pivot point that calls the rest of his analysis into question. Bouie correctly points out that ...

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...

 Frank says:

I feel it's better to sing about these things ourselves and perform them with the people who it happened to than to have some journalist one day say 'then in 1971, one time when they were at the mudshark hotel...' But people have problems with things of a glandular nature in connection with things of a musical nature. They say why, music is way up here, and glands are way down there and they can't get 'em together, but then they are hypocritical because they take a band that doesn't sing about such things directly and couches their language a little and does it with a little choreography and say that that's great and that's real rock and roll. I maintain that there's no difference, we're just honest enough to get up and say 'this is this and that's that and here you are and respond to it' and the response is 'why... I'm hip, but of course I am offended'.
