Orwell Could See Through Time

Captain Bullshit:

We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run. They’re going to try to make you afraid. They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?*"

Yet again the left can make a bold accusation without any evidence to support it. If asked to present one example of a prominent Republican saying anything directly racist in the last ten years, they'd be unable to find anything (except, perhaps, the Macaca thing). Clearly, the Republicans are too smart and evil to actually say how much they hate black people. Instead, it is obvious by their statements that they do.

Only to a liberal in this bizarro 1984 world does calling someone arrogant or elitist amount to racism.

Of course, I'm pretty sure the phrase "I love black people" would be interpreted as racist by the left. "He only feels the need to say that because of how racist he is!!!!!11eleventytrillion."

This shit gives me a headache. From now on I'm blogging about children's toys.

* - I know how long ago he said that but today his camp explained that a nearly identical statement wasn't about race.  This same aide later mentioned that our war with Eurasia has entered its 4,300th year.

I'll give them one thing, ignorance certainly seems to be strength.

Update:  More in a similar vein here.

A little geeky fun

This is from a few days ago, so feel free to sing a chorus of "It's Old," but apparently, George Lucas has finally been punished for the whole Jar Jar fiasco.

Dude looks like a lady...or is it the other way around?

There's an interesting (if somewhat disturbing) article in the Grauniad today about gender confusion at the Olympics and how humiliating some of the testing can be for the, er, female-ish athletes.  Apparently, it's not good enough to just take a look "down there" anymore.

The East Germans, of course, were notorious for doping up their female athletes until they were gigantic, mannish freaks, but they weren't the only Teutonic totalitarians to try cheating.  The Nazis tried a more, shall we say, Python-esque method.

As they say, read the whole thing.

Die the Friendly Skies

I don't find it extremely interesting that a woman died in an airplane bathroom. Based on the amount of time women seem to spend in bathrooms, I'd suspect nearly 40% of women die in one bathroom or another.

What I do find interesting is the last paragraph of the article:

Atlanta police stationed at the airport respond to calls about dead bodies on airplanes a couple of times a year, said Officer Eric Schwartz, a police spokesman. Talton said the situation was rare, but flight crews are trained to handle “a number of situations on board.”

It wouldn't have raised an eyebrow except for the euphemistic vagueness of the statement. What are these situations and how exactly are they trained to handle them? Is there a Weekend at Bernie's class they are required to take so they don't freak out the other passengers? Today's class: Icing down a corpse in the galley!

Every time I think I've got a handle on how bizarre the world is, I'm proven wrong.

Thanks to RD.

These rocket cars don't make themselves, ya know

In all fairness, you know you Morons have tried it:

A 20-year-old man is accused of breaking into a small airport and trying to fill up his car's gas tank with aviation gasoline.

"We've had people try and steal gas here in the past," said Jim Meide, who works at Reid-Hillview Airport. "It's really stupid. Put aviation gas in your car and it's so heavily leaded that eventually your valves warp and you'll end up with some very expensive repairs."

Strangest part of the story?  No Val-u-Rite vodka was involved.

A little temblor with your test, Malor?

Heh, that had to have been fun.  Malor got to experience the recent seismic event while he was trying to take part of his Bar Exam.  Hopefully it didn't rattle you too much, I know passing that isn't easy. 

I dunno what I'd think of an earthquake, we don't really get significant seismic activity in our part of Pennsylvania...or any part of PA really.  Of course we get snow and floods...

On hot dogs and hallways

Yay for euphamisms.  Compulsive breeders in Canada just brought their 18th spawn into the world:

Alexandru Ionce and his wife never planned to have 18 children in 23 years but when they welcomed little Abigail Ionce into the world, that's just what happened.

Abigail weighed in at seven pounds, 12 ounces last Tuesday, making her the 18th child for 44-year-old Livia Ionce and her husband Alexandru, 51.

[...]

Alexandru Ionce does not know if the couple will be having more children.

Gee, thank goodness they live in a socialist paradise and don't have to worry to hard about how to provide for their litter.  This is a gem, too (emphasis mine):

He said the birth was not an overly difficult one and that mother and child are doing well.

No shit.

This and That

I've been pretty busy lately but I wanted to remind you that I'm still taking Ask A Moron questions.  I know have several I haven't done but many of them require a good amount of time because I want to do them right.

Also, I wanted to pass on this rather disturbing personal anecdote that might not fit on the main page here.

Palin inhaled

Hmmm....yes, I realize it's two years old, but it's new to me:

Palin doesn't support legalizing marijuana, worrying about the message it would send to her four kids. But when it comes to cracking down on drugs, she says methamphetamines are the greater threat and should have a higher priority.

Palin said she has smoked marijuana -- remember, it was legal under state law, she said, even if illegal under U.S. law -- but says she didn't like it and doesn't smoke it now.

"I can't claim a Bill Clinton and say that I never inhaled."

I guess it's better than trying to suppress it for an October surprise.  I'm not really bothered by it (just as I'm not too bothered by Obama's way-in-the-past drug use).  To think, just 16 years ago, Bill Clinton felt the need to say that he "didn't inhale."

Related true story: While I was staying in Oxford one summer during grad school I ate at the pub where Bill Clinton supposedly "didn't inhale."

What will hopefully be my only "Edwards has a love child" post.

Between Mickey Kaus and Byron York think that the media will have to turn on John Edwards in order to save Sen. Obama.  If the Democrats' don't give him a prominent role at the DNC Convention, it will be a tacit admission that the story is true.  If they did give him podium time, there would be whispering throughout the stadium and (possibly) outlets like Fox News, who have already corroborated the story.

Nothing must distract from the coronation of the Obamessiah!

If Sinead O'Connor and Morrissey had a child, how long would it be before it killed itself?

According to ChaCha, the answer is "Well there are many factors that would affect the time it would take.  Such as how much time would the child spend with a nanny."

One of my friends just started working for this company.  You can text them any question for free, and they'll text you an answer.  I went to a party Friday night, and we a good portion of the night asking questions.  My favorite from that night?

Q: Is that so raven?
A: Hell yes it is.

Rockin'.

(And God help you if you point out that this is "old.")

Where are they now?

Remember the cover art for Nirvana's Nevermind?  The one with the swimming baby?  Well, he's a teenager now, and NPR did an interview with him.

Where the Wild Stills are

I'm a huge fan of director Spike Jonze.  I knew he would do a great job adapting Where the Wild Things Are, but these stills are simply amazing (to my Moron brain, anyway).

And yes, I am aware that they've been out since December.

Who said it?

Here's a link to a mildly amusing video where people have to guess if the quote is from George W. Bush or the 1960s Adam West Batman teevee show.

Most of them are pretty easy, but there are a few curveballs.  The funniest part, though, is the bitter old liberal guy who spouts off just about every lefty cliché about Bush that you can imagine within a span of just a few seconds.

Presented without context

Inside, then, is where The Cock's heart lies and it is around the bar area that the regulars cluster.
Tell me, ladies, is that your dream come true or what? A cock with a heart. And its own bar, too!

"Palin for America" web site

Wow.  Someone spent a lot of time on this.  It looks just as good as (or better than) some real candidate sites from this past season.

Ghost towns

There really is something eerie about them, particularly the Soviet ones, where people were made to leave immediately, and all their belongings left behind.  I'll make you take a detour through kishnevi's place to get to the article.  We of course have a well known ghost town...well, okay, maybe it isn't technically a ghost town, as there are a few people living there still.
