News bytes

Light blogging today, since I'm busier than Hillary Clinton with a paper shredder. Here are some topics du jour:

  • What do you do if the train is late yet again? Simple: you burn, loot, and riot. Sounds like Detroit, but it's actually Buenos Aires.

  • May is National Ma$turbation Month (I thought every month qualified?), and San Franistan is having a wank-a-thon. I don't know that I need to add anything else to that!

  • Euphemism of the day from Ace: To be clever and sensitive, welfare should be called "hazard pay for service in an economic warzone"!

  • During the GOP debate, nutbar conspiracy-theorist candidate Ron Paul apologized to our enemies for us bringing 9/11 on ourselves (mainly due to Clinton's 1998 bombing of Iraq), a point with which Alan Colmes agrees. Link here (warning: vulgar language in the linked post). Rudy tears him a new one. Hilarity ensues.

  • Pelosi looks to change rule (in place since 1822) in order to shut down Republicans' right to motion or recommit, breaking her 2006 promise to not do that. GOP threatens to shut down House if the lying wench tries it. Said wench ends up blinking, then retreating (kinda like they want to do in Iraq). All within about a three hour window. Now if that's not a fast retreat, I don't know what is.
