Special Prosecutor Angela Corey is scheduled to hold a press conference at 6 pm this evening to announce whether she’s going to charge George Zimmerman.

I’ve been trying to access George Zimmerman’s new website, but I keep getting 503 errors. I think you’re gonna need the business class server, George. Maybe a dedicated box, depending on how hard you get hit. ThinkProgress has a screenshot of the web page art: Okey dokey. As ThinkProgress reports, the spray-painted brick building in […]

Outing themselves

I find it interesting that after spending several weeks outing themselves as vicious misogynists—and doing so with utterly reckless enthusiasm—the wingnuts are now in the process of outing themselves as vicious racists. “Outing” isn’t really the right word, since everybody already knows that the right is steeped in racism and misogyny; but they usually try […]

It’s in this headline, from a twit I won’t link to who calls himself “Reliapundit” (and btw, somebody should really create a wingnut thesaurus or something so these guys can come up with an alternative to “pundit”): “MORE PROOF THAT TRAYVON WAS A “NIGGA” THUG” Yes, it’s in all caps, like his idiot brain. So, […]
