I was going to photoshop a birthday cake onto her lap to make this a birthday picture, but why hide fantastic legs?
We forget, we all forget, how huge and amazing and miraculous the world is. I am grateful for my life, I truly am.
Oh, and just for the hell of it, Fuck Chris Matthews. Fuck him Titanfucking style with a jackhammer powered spiked dildo soaked in hot sauce.

(S)cientists are predicting another consequence of climate change: mass migration to the United States.
Between 1.4 million and 6.7 million Mexicans could migrate to the U.S. by 2080 as climate change reduces crop yields and agricultural production in Mexico, according to a study published online this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The number could amount to 10% of the current population of Mexicans ages 15 to 65.
Oh Dear God, what can we do? Wait I know we can adopted the green house gas emissions targets set at Copenhagen. It’s the only way to preserve the American way of life.
Or we can look at this as what it is, scare tactics to try and drum up support for the Cap and Trade bill and comprehensive immigration reform, and probably any other languishing social program you care to name.
This is why we need a man like Basil Marceaux
Now some words of wisdom from Lionel Hutz (Your case won in 30 minutes or your pizza is free)
Right wing media are willing to engage in tactics that simply have no equivalent on the left -- even if mainstream news orgs and commentators keep taking refuge behind the notion that "both sides do it."
The leading lefty media organizations have teams of reporters who -- even if they are to some degree ideologically motivated -- work to determine whether their material is accurate, fair, and generally based in reality before sharing it with readers and viewers. They just don't push info -- with no regard to whether it's true or not -- for the sole purpose of having maximum political impact. Period.
Well, I can quickly call BS on this one.
Enter David Shuster, formerly of MSNBC, who in his attempt for glory in a "gotcha" moment with Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), stated falsely the location of a soldier who lost his life in the war. His efforts were clearly to have a political impact, by embarrassing a Republican elected official on national television. Shuster wanted a Republican to condemn the actions of a conservative talk show host. And in order to point to "hypocrisy", he demanded she name the last soldier from her district, who died in Iraq. Of course, he didn't fact check and was forced to issue an apology for being wrong about the name of the soldier and the district. He completely used the death of a young hero to achieve his goal. He cared not for the family of the young soldier or anyone else who might have been hurt in the process. Shuster used an innocent victim as a pawn for the sole purpose of political gain. Shuster wasn't a blogger or an activist. He was a cable television news reporter and anchor.
Ouch, that log in Sargent's eye must really be hurting by this time.
Sargent published his biased opinions full of tripe, without fact-checking to see if the mainstream media is guilty of the exact behavior he condemns. So I suggest Mr. Sargent take those rose-colored liberal glasses off and STFU from the cheap, pious seats. Period.
So would someone with some legal background care to weigh in on this?
(And yes, I'm aware I've sold my soul for a shiny gadget. Feel free to give me hell for it.)
Uh, how about we not have a serious discussion about race, we don't need one, other than discussing the fact that liberals and MSM operations like Newsweek can't help themselves but demagogue the right and call us racist over every opposing viewpoint we offer. Not once in that entire article do they mention the fact that this was a retaliation against the NAACP for their move to slander Tea Partiers by declaring them all racist, or that Breitbart's focus was as much on the crowd cheering Sherrod declaring she was gonna screw some evil whitey farmer when he did that post. They offer this bit of literary diarrhea as well,
The American public, meanwhile, was left to wonder what the moral of this tale really is. For starters, it’s about the idiocy that can follow when ideology replaces journalistic integrity. Real journalists draw conclusions from facts. The ideologues who attacked Sherrod forced facts to fit their preconceived notions.
Yes, it's all about facts, sorta like CBS using fucking Media Matters as their source to "debunk" concerns over the two club-wielding Black Panther fucktards at the Philly polling center. But of course, CBS is a respectable news organization, not some partisan muckraker hack like that damnable Breitbart. Spare me the self-righteous fucking bullshit about drawing conclusion from fact.
I'm tired of the fucking handwringers on our side on this issue, and I'm really superfuckingtired of the media's bullshit high and mighty act. You fuckers in media pull this shit on us on a daily basis, then have the audacity to bitch when Breitbart (sorta) does it once? Fuck you. Fuck you with a rusty chainsaw, sideways.
And another thing, all you handwringers on the right, now that Sherrod has come out and accused Breitbart of wanting to reinstitute slavery, feeling stupid yet? You should be.
New health and safety guidelines mean the water supply that has sustained the residents of Muck through the ages is no longer deemed safe to drink.
Officials have told the Hebridean island’s 35 inhabitants they must import mineral water from the mainland and are offering taxpayer-funded grants for a new treatment and purification system.
But angry residents complained no one has become ill after drinking water from the island’s eight natural springs, which are fed by rain clouds rolling across the Atlantic.
Lawrence MacEwen, whose family have owned the tiny isle since 1896, said: “All the houses on Muck are served by reliable springs of a quality at least as good as can be bought in bottles.
“But that is not good enough for our environmental health, who are insisting that all our water is treated before it reaches the houses.”
These people have been drinking the water unfiltered from the local springs for generations, but now they're being told by the government that they have to purify it, and they're going to get a £15,200 subsidy per household to purify water that has never made anybody sick.

Someone died skiing.
Yep, it's July.
And yet, only two hours from where he died, it was hot enough today to take the kiddos swimming.
On an audio tape obtained by The Denver Post, Buck was caught muttering "will you tell those dumba---s at the Tea Party to stop asking questions about birth certificates while I'm on the camera?" outside a June 11 event in Crowley.This election cycle and the excuses made for some of the candidates have made me sick, and I've lost respect for some people (who shall remain nameless) that I really thought were moral and upstanding and believed in doing the right thing.
Oh. And Obama wants to let him out of jail on "compassion" grounds.
Hey, look at that, I can hate Obama more. Good to know.

The only way it could get any better is if Isaiah Mustafa had a recurring role. I could totally see him as an NSA agent constantly pissing off John Casey by being bigger, badder, smarter, and more handsome than Casey. Preferably with his shirt off.
My condolences, and I'm sure everyone else's here at DPUD, go out to you, alex. It's been obvious for years that Leslie has been a rock in your life. I know you'll miss her more than any of us can imagine. I'm certain that I speak for all of us in telling you that if there is anything that any of us can do for you, please don't hesitate to ask.
And as long as I'm here, I'm going to offer a few tips for Rocky Mountain National Park tourons, all stemming from our visit yesterday.
Hey Katie, I can call you Katie, right, I have a wee little question for you. Were you on Journolist? Because I'm thinking you were. Also? Fuck you.
Finally a candidate I can get behind for President:
