Live Free Or Die (Photo ID Required)

On this Election Day (LA residents, go vote ya dumbasses), I must direct everyone to this piece in today’s DailyKos.  Apparently, Republicans in my home state are pushing to require photo IDs and eliminate same-day voter registrations at the polls, a blatant attempt to restrict the voting rights of the students who attend many of the local colleges.

Strategy 2012: Attack Teachers, Single-Mothers and the Working Class

We’re about to witness an incredible feat of obfuscation and misdirection.  The Republican party is a few months into a massive, nationwide campaign to discredit the very people who they hope to court for the Senate and White House in 2012: the American people.  It’s fascinating that not only do they think this is a winning strategy, but that it might actually work, and that so many people will be once again battered into voting against their own self interest.

And the Mickey goes to…

Apparently, Disney is fed up with the Academy and their blatant overlook of mainstream entertainment and has decided to make their own awards – and then give them to themselves. Already nominated, of course, are the not even-released-yet Tangled and Tron: Legacy.  Also in the running are Toy Story 3 (which could actually win a real award, from what I hear), Tim Burton‘s embarrassing Alice in Wonderland, and Secretariat. Maybe it’s normal practice for a business as big as Disney to internally reward their staff by saying which person did the best job.  What would be hilarious is if the award was granted by stockholders, with the Best Supporting Actress statuette going to the actress who’s billing generates the best aggregate box office tallies.  Maybe then we can finally inject some market economics into the creative process and finally complete Walt Disney’s magical dream.

God Loves Rubbers (Finally)

The time has come.  Just like their eventual admission that the Earth orbits the Sun (1822), and that species evolve from other species (Oh, wait…) the Catholic church has decided at last that between condoms and HIV, condoms are the lesser evil. Once again, dogma has proven maleable, but not without the suffering of millions, and after like, 100 years or so. Let’s all fuck  bareback to celebrate, the way God intended (but later revised.)

Let’s Talk About How Awesome This Is

and true. The artist as a pretty spiffy site where he explains himself very lucidly.  Among his notes: the judge is crying because of the shame from abortion rights and interstate commerce regulations, and the Chinese immigrant is sort of surprised that Jesus is real.  You can even hover over the picture and get commentary on what each figure represents. I do hope he knows that it looks pretty apocalyptic, and that if Jesus came back with only Presidents he’d have a hard time delegating tasks.  I mean, don’t you […]
