You see, Ms. Applebaum is upset that child-rapist Roman Polanski was arrested in Switzerland this weekend. More than upset, seeing as how she calls it "outrageous"...
I am certain there are many who will harrumph that, following this arrest, justice was done at last. But Polanski is 76. To put him on trial or keep him in jail does not serve society in general or his victim in particular. Nor does it prove the doggedness and earnestness of the American legal system.It proves, Anne, that nobody is above the law. It doesn't matter if you're a gifted filmmaker, that you survived the horrors of the Nazi occupation of Poland, that you escaped Communism, or that your wife was one of the most famous murder victims of the 20th century. If you drug and rape a 13-year-old girl and then flee from justice, there ought to be a reckoning.
Oh, and her final line is just incredible:
If he weren't famous, I bet no one would bother with him at all.And if he weren't famous, I bet you wouldn't be defending him like this. The fact that you're doing so is what's really outrageous here.

"For me, to see more than a million people experiencing happiness, love and peace is incredibly powerful, because what happens in politics is people become divided," Juanes told AP Television News.See, here's the thing...While I'm sure you're talking about people being "divided" by "politics" in the sense of international relations, the ironic thing is that there are no "politics" in Cuba, seeing as how it's a one-party, autocratic state. Nobody gets to run against whoever the Communist Party chooses to stand behind for election.
Oh, and do I sense a certain pattern emerging here?
Juanes, who has won 17 Latin Grammy awards, more than any other artist, is known for his social activism. His first "Peace Without Borders" concert in 2008 drew tens of thousands to the border between Venezuela and Colombia when tensions were high over a Colombian commando raid into neighboring Ecuador that killed a leading Colombian rebel commander.Yeah. I know nothing whatsoever about this guy, but he sounds like a pinko douche.
Make sure that if you click on the link, you note that Obama made sure to note that American policy emphasizes that Cuba should be a nation free of one-party Communist dictatorship.
[Jesus, I wish I wasn't kidding there.]

Charles Johnson. You're a racist.
Charles Johnson. You're a racist.
Charles Johnson. You're a racist.
Props to Eddie for the FaceCock
Also, you're fucking retarded. See, last time I checked "wookie" was not a racist code word until you and your buddies started making up new ways to insult the black man. What a terribly racist thing to do.
Anyway, I do not accept the usurpation of the word Wookie for racist uses. That's right, I'm taking it back.
From now on Lizardoid means racist as far as I'm concerned and Lizardoids aren't welcome.
The country’s election to the Board of Governors is recognition of its long standing commitment to the aims and objectives of the IAEA, a Foreign Office statement said.
So that whole develop a nuke in violation of the non-proliferation treaty and then distribute the technology to places like Syria, Libya, Iran, and North Korea thing was in accordance with the the aims and objectives of the IAEA? Interesting.

"Arlen is not someone who came to Washington to fight for a particular ideology," said Obama, at the Philadelphia Convention Center.Yeah, no shit. You can hardly call Arlen Specter ideologically rigid.

On the other hand, it did provide me with a very interesting piece of information—namely, that MTV apparently still has something to do with music videos.
(Via Hot Air Headlines.)
(The comments suggest that either it isn't, or that if it is, the audience didn't get the "joke." I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that it's the former.)

Isn't it a wonderful post-racial country we've been living in these last few months?

Sullivan and his attorney claim that paying the $125 fine would create a record of his being charged with possession of a controlled substance. Collings notes that whether or not Sullivan ever paid the fine, "if asked by immigration authorities, [he] would have to answer truthfully that he had been charged with a crime involving controlled substances." So why would it matter whether or not Sullivan just pays the $125? Because if he doesn't pay it, it makes it easier for him to answer untruthfully.
God, it would make me so happy to see this piece of shit deported. Bonus joy if the motherfucker cried in public.

And, no, it's not the anniversary you might think he should actually address the nation about. But of course.
I tried it in Explorer, it worked that way. Updated Firefox on this computer doesn't have autocomplete for google. I realized I was at "google/firefox" so I went to just "google.com", it has autocomplete, it worked that way. Does anybody wonder why I always say, "Do a search for...."? I never use their name as a verb anymore.
Now that I think about it, maybe this belonged in "Funniest End of Civilization Ever", that could be there because the majority of people who type in "How to have a" finish it with "miscarriage".
It's not very funny, but it's plenty endy.
Shamelessly (mostly) stolen from Are We Lumberjacks?

A) "God, that sucked."
B) "Hm. Well, that wasn't anything we haven't heard before."
C) "I guess he managed to hold his own after a brutal month."
D) "OMG THAT WAS TEH BESTEST. SPEECH. EVAR!!!!11!one!1!eleventy!!!"
I'll tuck the answer below the fold...
Al Franken, the Senate's newest member, may be best known for his comedic talent as a former member of Saturday Night Live. But he's now capturing attention for a decidedly less funny talent: drawing the U.S. map from memory.
HOLY FUCKING MOTHERFUCKING SHIT!!!! </faux enthusiasm>
Seriously? That's impressive? I've been able to do that since the third grade. I mean, I guess I'm glad to know he has something to fall back on considering he is incapable of being funny or intelligent.
I wonder if he has any other mundane "talents" he'd like to broadcast to the world. I bet he's awesome at peeing sitting down and getting the cock all the way into his mouth. He also seems to have an a amazing gift for making people change the channel.
I mean, is that the bar? That's the bar for a story to make the news, having the barest knowledge of American geography? I was pretty fucking tight at the home version of Where In The World Is Carmen San Diego but I don't see anybody writing a wire story about me.
Fuck's sake. Senator Al Fucking Franken can draw a map of the United States. FROM MEMORY! HOLY FLAMING BOOGER FUCK!
How about this: If you can't draw one, you don't get to be a member of the "Greatest Deliberative Body On Earth."
More like the Greatest Degenerate Body on Earth.

"This is one of the few guys that I have know in 36 years that when it came down to a matter of principle and what would help his state, or his future, he chose the principle," Biden said.HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Good one, Pluggy! He's so principled that he switched parties in order to avoid a primary challenge that he would almost certainly lose. Or did he?
Specter joked that Biden called him up so much that "I reverted to my roots and became a Democrat" and voted for the stimulus package. Specter switched parties in April.Thanks for confirming what we always knew, Arlen, you fucking fraud.
Oh, and hey, while you're at it, why not bury yourself just a little bit more?
Specter told the crowd how he had been attending town hall meetings in support of the administration's health care plan. He has faced angry crowds at those forums.
"Single payer is on the table and we need a robust public option and we're going to get it," Specter said.
You just heard it from the horse's mouth ass, Pennsylvania. Arlen Specter wants the government to take over seventeen percent of our economy. And if you work in the coal industry? Gee, you think he's gonna vote to "help his state"? Call me a cynic, but I think he might just vote to help his new (although always close to his heart) party and his recently found buddies in the Obama administration.
Coming from California, it's not easy for me to look down on another state, but if you guys manage to re-elect this guy, well...

That's part of something that one of my local PBS channels (I get four of them here, not counting their additional DTV signals, one of which broadcasts only in Spanish) showed last night.
And you know what? I'm fucking glad that hardworking people come to this country. I'm fucking glad that their kids want to be teachers and lawyers. I'm fucking glad that they see this country as a beacon of hope. I'm fucking glad that they want to come here so that they can work hard and give their kids the chances that they never had in the fucking third world shitholes that they came from.
Wait your fucking turn.
You heard me. I said that you had to wait your fucking turn in line.
I'm not against immigration. Hell, I'd be a hypocrite if I was. I'd be writing this from somewhere in Ireland or England or Scotland or Germany or (and it pains me to say this, but it's true) France. But all of those people who regrettably resulted in my dumb ass came over here through legal means.
You know who else did so? The people who live next door and down the street from me. They come from places like India, Taiwan, South Korea, Pakistan, Iran, and, yes, even Mexico.
You know what they all have in common? None of them is here illegally. They all waited in line and did what they had to do in order to enter this country legally.
What's my point? Well, we're a nation of immigrants. But I'm not really happy when our tax money is spent in order to say, effectively, "Hey, who gives a shit about our laws?"
This is the greatest country in the history of the world, and if we don't start enforcing our borders, well, who gives a fucking shit?

As many parents know because they find out the hard way, teenagers are excessively judgmental creatures who are usually operating with a limited amount of information and experience. So 19-year-old Johnston’s perceptions should be taken with a grain of salt.Is it possible to take something with a grain of douche?

David Axelrod, senior advisor to President Obama, will speak in Lincoln on Oct. 9 as part of the Integrity in Public Service Lecture Series.
Mr. Axelrod, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
