It’s Really That Slow

Zzzzz.Since we have nothing better to do, and we may face other days like this, welcome to our new occasional mid-afternoon link dump. Because even we don’t want to see “Cock Teasers” at the top of the page every time we refresh it.

  • Paul Kirk to replace Teddy? Too early for Star Trek gags, but we’ll stretch if we have to.
  • Shhh! Eric Holder promises he won’t invoke the state-secrets privilege as often as Shrub. The Kinder, Gentler Bush Administration continues.
  • Hong Kong Phooey. Talibunny remarks closed to the media, but since her speech was as tightly scripted as her Facebook page, you’re not missing anything.
  • iPorn! Follow your favorite pestorkers on your iPhone! Oh, they’re clothed. Never mind.

Sorry, that’s the best we can do. Please, somebody out there, say something stupid.


“we don’t want to see “Cock Teasers” at the top of the page every time we refresh it”

you say that like its a bad thing.

if you are looking for a valid reason to feel superior try this:

Lakeland Florida Police caught playing Wii Bowling

“Ever wonder what really goes on during the execution of a search warrant for drugs? Hopefully, this is an anomaly. Watch as Lakeland, FL Sheriff’s deputies play a Wii bowling game on the suspects’ TV for 9 straight hours. They were caught by his home security camera.”

From The Poor Man:

Which brings me to this charming vignette, courtesy of blog commenter Harry Hopkins:

“I remember back in the late 1990s, when Ira Katznelson, an eminent political scientist at Columbia, came to deliver a guest lecture. Prof. Katznelson described a lunch he had with Irving Kristol during the first Bush administration.

“The talk turned to William Kristol, then Dan Quayle’s chief of staff, and how he got his start in politics. Irving recalled how he talked to his friend Harvey Mansfield at Harvard, who secured William a place there as both an undergrad and graduate student; how he talked to Pat Moynihan, then Nixon’s domestic policy adviser, and got William an internship at the White House; how he talked to friends at the RNC [Republican National Committee] and secured a job for William after he got his Harvard Ph.D.; and how he arranged with still more friends for William to teach at Penn and the Kennedy School of Government.

“With that, Prof. Katznelson recalled, he then asked Irving what he thought of affirmative action. ‘I oppose it,’ Irving replied. ‘It subverts meritocracy.’ “

Now I think we can speak ill of the dead.

How’s this for some garden-variety stoopid:

Inhofe going to lead “Truth Squad”: Putting Inhofe in charge of anything related to “truth” is like having a “Marital Fidelity Squad” featuring Vitter, Ensign and Sanford.

Idiot Blue Dog of the Day: American Health Care Already “Soviet-Style”: Some phenomenal backpedalling action in this story.

thank god the idiot blue dog is from Georgia. I am really tired of the idiot blue dogs from my state (AR) getting all the press.

@Capt Howdy:

Clearly they found the drugs they were looking for… :)

on one level I can relate to this. I work for a game company.
on another I cant believe anyone can do Wii for 9 hours.

@al2o3cr: Jim Inhofe, brought to you by the Club for Growth (Chesapeake and Devon Energy), the petroleum industry, and the weapons-grade-stupid people of Oklahoma.

Expect to see more of this as the unemployment situation worsens:

A few years ago, I’d have assumed that anybody that anybody that claimed “the devil made me do it” was angling for an insanity plea. But after reading some of the “spiritual warfare” nonsense that’s floating around in churches throughout the US (including the Talibunny’s), he may honestly believe that. I’m not sure which is worse…

The banner ad on this page is from “Take Back Your Campus,” which I think is some right-wing attempt to drum up youth membership. I wonder how Google came up with that one.
