bastard.logic: IOKIYAR to Infinity.

Ok, so I know IOKIYAR is (and has been for ages) SOP in DC. Still, the manner in which the Village took Rosengate oh-so seriously (and turned it up TO ELEVEN) but is now suddenly backpeddling re: The Nuge’s semi-coherent call for Obama’s assassination (gosh, campaign surrogates sure do say the darndest things!*) is especially ...

Yep, boys ‘n’ girls, the Harpercons have come out with a new shiny thing–an attack ad against the Liberal interim leader, Bob Rae.  I guess it’s never too early to get a jump start on that election campaign now, is it? I mean, they better get chopping now!! Only 3 + years before . . ...

American law enforcement officials: “U.S. is becoming ‘more progressive’ than Canada”

"Hey, this is some good reefer. I just saw the future. It's just like the 30's in Canada only worse!" Harper tells them to buzz off. He is determined to send Canada back a century, if not the middle ages. But the Harper government remains unswayed. In a statement Tuesday, a spokeswoman for . . . ...

Prominent Quebec Attorney, A Right Wingnut And Bigot?

After last night’s episode of  “Canada Reads”,  prominent Quebec attorney, Anne-France Goldwater decided to be really nasty by calling one of the featured authors “a terrorist” and implied that another one was “a liar”. “Carmen Aguirre is a bloody terrorist.

Senator Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu Sticks His Foot in it–Again!

Well, boys ‘n’ girls, here the ol’ Senator “sell-out” Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu goes again!  He appears to be promoting suicide amongst prisoners. “Basically, every killer should (have) the right to his own rope in his cell.

So, Suzy ALLCAPS, Are You Promoting…MURDER??

Well, boys and girls, I know I’ve been gone for awhile. Blogging for me will still be sporadic as I am still dealing with health issues and learning my new position at work, which I am loving and it’s challenging and I learn something new every day.  It’s all good, except, of course, . . ...

Meat to Barking Dogs

Cruising through Memeorandum this morning, this item caught my attention: Michelle Obama’s Birthday Restaurant Has Occupy-Themed Burger Menu. The restaurant of her birthday festivities features a “99% Patty Melt”  on Wonder Bread for $9.99, and a “1% 8 oz Kobe burger” decorated with gold  leaf. Because Michelle Obama drives righties insane (smart, black, female), . . ...

That’s Very Christian of You, Dr. Jabba The Roy Eappen

Wow! I guess that true Christian charity really only begins at home for those right wingnutz who only worship the altar of greed, don’t it Dr. Roy? Yes, the ‘good’ doctor wants those ‘squatters’, as he so eloquently calls the occupiers of St-James Park, evicted, preferrably, by force no doubt. Why? Because, he . . ...

Not exactly relevant in Canada, but still useful for dealing with your fundamentalist relatives over the holiday season.   [Via.]  

Mayor McPanic?? Hahahaha!

The fallout from Mayor Effingford’s little fracas with Marg Delahunty/Mary Walsh just keeps getting better.  Olbermann tweets: HAHAHAHA!  One of the Worst Persons in the World 2 days in a row?? Hizzoner better get his shit together: he’s rapidly spiraling into “Lonesome Rhodes Beck” and “Billo The Clown” territory.  (Of course, to Mayor Effingford that ...

Quebecor And RLQ’s Chou-Chou, Eric Duhaime Has Hit a New Low–Enough With The Canadian Arrogant Complacency!

Yes, that would be the same Eric Duhaime, the one who begged the feds, not once, but twice, to somehow intervene in the construction scandal woes in la Belle province, a problem that dates decades that needs systemic changes that not even the feds can touch.  That same scandal that ol’ Chrissie Paradis once had ...

It’s Climategate II! Except It’s Not.

Kate at Small Dead Animals is virtually peeing herself with excitement: the lyin’ bastards have been caught again! Data manipulation! Climate change is a hoax! Etc.! She quotes from a Mail on Sunday article at length, which in itself quotes an American colleague of Richard Muller (of BEST climate study fame) named Judith Curry. The ...

Mayor Fordzilla Taking Campaign Lessons From Steve Harper

Yes,  this puffy faced buffoon has been in office for a year now and how does he celebrate? Why, he begins to go into permanent campaign mode, of course! “Three more years and I’ll be running again, that’s for sure,” he said. “I’m running, 100 per cent,” he added later. “I’m already out campaigning.” Sound ...

Not much to add to this: The B110 is a bus run by a private bus company that has a contract with the city of New York. It runs from Williamsburg to South Brooklyn and caters mostly to Orthodox Jews. And to hipsters, probably, with their love of retro trends, in Brooklyn! The New York ...

In The World According To ‘Pro-Lifers’ It’s Best To Just Let Women Die

In some cases, horrific, gory deaths at that.  Yes, boys ‘n’ girls, with every fetus fetish bill Rethuglicans, with the help of some ‘friendly’ Democrats,  they pass or attempt to pass in a feverish attempt to circumvent Roe v Wade, it just never seems enough for them, nor for their fetus fetish lobbyists. The Rethuglican ...

National Post and free speech

I find it not a little humorous that the National Post is back pedalling furiously over their publishing Charles McVety’s repulsive homophobic ad. Even more humorous is the Post’s high-minded explanation of why it published an ad that should never have been published in the first place. The most humorous though is how many times NatPost ...

Chrissie Bitchford is At it Again!

Man, what a bitter woman she is!! Is there no nasty she’ll stop at to suck up to a man in uniform?  This time, she’s after Lori Massicotte.

War on drugs ravages world’s patients living with pain

  When I think of the war on drugs, I think of conservatives in western countries and their prohibition against marijuana. Of course, it’s a much bigger issue than that. It’s a war in which pleasure is something to deny and fear. But this war goes beyond mere denial of pleasure. It denies relief to ...

Now There’s a Comforting Thought…

That Ubercon wet dream of Stevie Spiteful’s that he went all ga ga giddy over at Mayor Boss Hogg’s hootenanny last summer that was videotaped. Yanno, that video that the Cons seem to  feverishly keep chasing their tails,  trying to keep it off the intertoobz without much success. Well, boys ‘n’ girls, here it is ...
