How About a Nice Game of Chess?

“Midway through the argument… Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. — who is known to write out his opinions in long hand with pen and paper instead of a computer — asked what the difference was ‘between email and a pager?'” [DC Dicta, via Political Wire]


It’s comforting that he’ll only be on the Court for 40 more years. Maybe he’ll even start using the e-mails once he gets tired of refilling the ink hammer on the TELEX.

thank god it wasnt the gecko.

Actor Lance Baxter, otherwise known as “D.C. Douglas,” currently known as the man who informs you how much Geico can save you on car insurance, left a message last month with FreedomWorks in which he asked the group how many “mentally retarded” people it had on staff and what it would do when a tea partyer “killed someone.” On April 14, FreedomWorks put his voicemail online.

Today, Douglas reports he’s been dropped from Geico’s campaign. His dramatic news release is here; he claims to have been motivated by “the recent gay and racial slurs slung by Tea Party members at Congressman Barney Frank and Representative John Lewis during the Health Care Reform Weekend,” and says he’s “open to any attorneys taking on this case pro bono.”

@Capt Howdy: The initial story caught my attention a few days ago, but as I recall, Lance was a tad less than polite on the phone. He’s free to declare himself a martyr, but I didn’t feel like taking up his cause at the time.

Let’s hope he never finds out about the John’s Bitch-Bottom Supreme for Donkey-Dick facebook page.

Unrelated, but cool for all the iPad owners out there:

You too can have the only app reliably able to make Trekkies jizz in their pants from 5 feet away. :)

@Capt Howdy: Ah, Weigel covered it — Lance was impolite in a message to FreedomWorks:

“I just need to know what the percentages of people who are mentally retarded are,” Baxter says in a voice-mail recording posted on the site, “who work for the organization… and also what your plans are for when one of your members actually kills somebody.”

I’ll let someone else wave his flag.

@al2o3cr: You’re damn straight I’m downloading that one.

I read somewhere the other day that Stevens writes his own opinions on a computer but I can’t find that article or the awesome picture of him next to his old computer.

The pager has a psychic ground slug inside that receives messages from other psychic ground slugs and chews tobacco and spits them up at the little screen in alphanumerics.

Yeah, and when someone flushes their toilet it goes straight into the center of the earth, provoking an explosive release of steam and eruption of Old Faithful.


The defendants lawyer didn’t even know his client has log files and archival back-ups that are irretrievable and uneraseable by the client base.


Why are these people in these positions? What other kinds of barking incompetence are they inflicting upon humanity?

Someone get that justice a KayPro …
