The scene in Dr. Socks’s yard this morning as thousands of revelers gathered to celebrate Mardi Gras. I’ve been in a vortex the past few days, writing and sleeping at all hours, and when I awoke early this morning I didn’t know what day it was. At first I thought for sure it was Monday, […]

Amanda’s New Job: Official Playwright to the Edwards Campaign

I’ve learned two things from this week’s wrestling match between the feminist blogosphere and the Christofascists (and if you don’t know what I’m talking about, ohforchrissake). 1. These things generate a lot of email. My inbox is so flooded with missives from the other gals on the super-secret Satanic Feminist Network that I can’t even […]

As many of you probably know, the American Taliban, Catholic Division, has launched a Holy War against Amanda of Pandagon, Melissa of Shakespeare’s Sister, and indeed anyone who dares to point out that their idiotic religion is a nothing but a load of white hot sticky jism. I’ll have more to say on this later, […]

Proof that the Brits suck worse than we do

There have been some wild assertions on this blog recently that people in the U.K. are perhaps not quite as fucked up as people in the United States. I think this video is proof otherwise: Sure, Americans created this deeply horrifying thing, but it was in the U.K. that the record spent two weeks at […]

We’ve come a long way, baby

A columnist reminds us that even if women pretend they can do manly jobs like astronautin’, deep down they’re still just silly bimbos. So I guess we should just quit with the pretense and surrender to our bimbo natures, right? The Republicans who put together this poster seem to think so; what matters about a […]

Zeke I just now saw. Goodbye, dear sweet blog dog. My heart is so full I can say nothing else.

The Swift-Boating of Amanda, and the Duke First-Degree Sexual Assault (which includes raping someone with a broomstick) Case

UPDATE 2/8/07 at 12:18 pm EST: Amanda and Melissa have not been fired! ***** Remember a few days ago when I mentioned that Amanda was going to work for the John Edwards campaign? Well, in the interim the wingnut noise machine has launched an all-out attack on Ms. Pandagon, which would be funny if people […]

“Where’s Violet?”

she asked, referring to herself in the third person. “I’m right here,” she mumbled to herself through a mouthful of vegetable lo mein as she pasted in the embedding code for a YouTube video. “You know, you really need to write another post. Actually say something. People will start to think you’ve abandoned the blog.” […]

Overwhelmed

Molly Ivins is dead, Barack Obama is the first clean African-American, children as young as five are being sold into Cambodian sex slavery, a Florida rape victim was thrown in jail and denied emergency contraception, and Shrub continues his personal quest to be impeached. Oh, and Amanda’s running for President. Just feeling a bit gobsmacked.
