…that Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play:
Actually, the Venezuelan people didn’t need no stinkin’ band. They rescued their president from a US-backed coup attempt with no outside help whatsoever, and with him, their democracy. The State Dept. would rather you forgot all about that, no doubt. But I’m not about to . . . → Read More: Festive Left Friday Blogging: It was ten years ago today…

What happens when you host a neo-Nazi on your TV show in Greece? Nothing…for about a week. And then, you get THIS:
According to Russia Today, here’s what happened:
A Greek TV host has become the target of a massive egg-and-yoghurt attack carried out by leftist activists angry that he had invited a . . . → Read More: A novel use for eggs and yogurt
Before we begin, a little mood music:
Ah. Thank you so much for that lovely music (and that uncharacteristic truthfulness), Mr. Limbaugh.
So, Rush…how’s it feel to be at the bottom of your own shit-avalanche for a change? Fun, eh? Yeah, you really had everybody going there, with your “absurdist” humor that isn’t . . . → Read More: A few random thoughts about whores
Two obnoxious, hateful, right-wing “family” things went bye-bye today: Karen Fucking Handel from the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and the last faint flicker of hope for Prop Hate in California.
I’m sure neither will be sadly missed.
Yes, kiddies, your auntie Bina is still under the weather. But since laughter is supposed to be the best medicine, let’s take the Rick Mercer cure, shall we?
Oof. Just made myself cough. Guess I’m not cured after all! But it does make me feel better to know that Peter Fucking Kent and Ezra . . . → Read More: I don’t think this will cure my cold.
And as usual, Miss Piggy gets the best lines.
This isn’t the first time I’ve heard THIS story:
A MAN got more than he bargained for when a prostitute he ordered to his hotel room turned out to be his daughter.

In celebration of the new law requiring all US health insurance providers to cover birth control and other preventive health measures for women with no “co-pays” (out of pocket expenses, often used by insurers to minimize their own expenditures), Planned Parenthood got multi-culti and had some fun making this: …which ought to give Anders Breivik […] . . . → Read More: Planned Parenthood meets Bollywood!
Bit of a headache, narcopresidentes? Maybe you should start drinking coca tea, I hear it’s good for that. The merry pranksters of the Internets have been very busy boys (and girls!) lately. It was only a matter of time before this happened…and yesterday, it did: “Information pirates” attacked the social-media accounts of the current president […] . . . → Read More: Anonymous hacks El Narco!
…made in just under a minute, by a hair-triggered guy who’s not as quick on the draw as he thought he was. Watch the slo-mo replay; you’ll see he blows out a pant leg. Best YouTube comment: “He missed his balls. His genes are … . . . → Read More: The case for gun control…
I was just reading a whole bunch of stuff about the News of the World phone-hack scandal when a certain stumpy-tailed cat started meowing at me. That can only mean one thing: Ms. Manx has some goodies for us! Lead on, MacStump… First off, Ms. Manx thinks that the Nation asks some damn good questions […] . . . → Read More: Short ‘n’ Stubby: “A fantastic day for Britain”
Who’d of thunk that an actor who once became notorious for his run-in with a streetwalker would end up turning the tables on the paparazzi who made his private life virtually nonexistent thereafter? Or that he’d become a hero to all the people victimized by Rupert Murdoch’s junk-journalism empire in the process? Certainly it never […] . . . → Read More: Heroes for Today: Hugh Grant, actually.
A Canadian documentary that starts with the CIA’s failed, lame attempt to develop LSD as a truth serum/mind-control agent. Instead, it became the catalyst for thousands of old beatniks and young hippies, formerly staid scientists and political activists to all come together in a radical questioning of authority. Isn’t it funny how as soon as […] . . . → Read More: The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test
This video, from 1990, shows Rush Limbaugh filling in for Pat Sajak on the latter’s short-lived (if you blinked, you missed it) TV talk show…and getting clobbered, metaphorically speaking, by an anything-but-captive audience: In the first segment, the Pigman tries to tackle the subject of abortion. He uses a Ms. Potato Head doll to represent […] . . . → Read More: Ah, memories!
