Weapons of Yellow Fuzziness

By · Friday, June 23rd, 2006 · 20 Comments »

The wingnuts have got themselves in a tizzy about some old chemical shells that were found in Iraq back in 2004. These were just degraded shells which the DOD itself says were from Saddam’s pre-1991 armament. Yet the magic of wingnuttery has suddenly transformed these relics into the long-lost Weapons of Mass Destruction. Maha correctly […]

Flocking Behavior

By · Wednesday, June 14th, 2006 · 7 Comments »

The highly coordinated movements of flocks of birds or schools of fish are among the most fascinating phenomena to be found in nature. The group seems to turn and maneuver as a single unit, changing direction almost instantaneously… …Research by Wayne Potts, published in the journal Nature in 1984, helped explain how flock movements are […]

A gathering storm of gayness is going to sweep over the land and make birds fly into windows

The Senate voted yesterday to kill the anti-gay marriage amendment, which was a welcome but unsurprising bit of news. There was never any chance of this amendment passing; the whole point of the exercise was just to remind the batshit crazy fundies that only Republicans are willing to protect us from the evil homo cooties […]

Another Ward Churchill

Here’s another radical college professor spewing bilge into the minds of our young people. Writing on the left-wing crypto-communist History News Network, James C. Cobb sneers at the concerns of a hapless young Republican forced to listen to his America-hating propaganda: After 34 years of college teaching, I thought I had heard just about every […]

I’m going to have every word of this post tattooed on my body. Then I’m going to figure out where Andrew lives and go have sex with him.

Good news! Jay Bennish has been reinstated at Overland High School. He goes back in the classroom Monday. The official statement from the school district is regrettably weasly, but at least the result is good. Expect a wingnut meltdown.

Puncturing the Propaganda Balloon

By · Thursday, March 9th, 2006 · 6 Comments »

Propaganda is amazing stuff. Done right, you can convince people of almost anything. You can persuade them that reality is the exact opposite of what they see in front of their eyes. Black is white, war is peace, death is life and day is night. The key is consistency and repetition. As Goebbels said, if […]

Een vleugelnoot!

By · Friday, February 24th, 2006 · 13 Comments »

Did you know that Europe has wingnuts too? They do! In Dutch a wingnut is “een vleugelnoot” (actually I think that means something completely different, but stay with me, people). And the exciting thing is that their heads are just as far up their asses as those of American wingnuts! This comforts me in a […]

Via Jesus’ General comes word that The Stupidest Woman In the World is urging people to support Denmark by purchasing Watco Danish Furniture Oil. Which, it turns out, is owned by Rust-Oleum and made in Wisconsin.
