Senate candidate Alvin Greene (D-SC)
Alvin Greene

Dammit, why did Gawd have to design the human body so dastardly complicated? It’s a nightmare to learn to draw correctly, you know. Fuckin’ arms, how do they work?! </obscure inside joke>

  • Why you should vote for the (apparently mentally deficient) Alvin Greene [pictured] for senate.

  • Teabagger Senate candidate Sharron Angle’s (R-Nevada) new tactic: accusing opponent Harry Reid (D-Nevada) of trying “hit the girl”. By merely criticizing her and exposing her extremist views.

  • When “[t]ake the fucking lemonade and shut the fuck up” is the best way to summarize a loony rant about kids offering lemonade for free on a hot day.

  • Yet another example why feminists are stereotyped as humorless radicals who see everything through an ideological prism.

  • 3, 2, 1, facepalm: San Francisco’s Commission of Animal Control and Welfare is actually proposing to ban all sales of pets and companion animals in the city. Their fantastic(al) logic: “People buy small animals all the time as an impulse buy, don’t know what they’re getting into, and the animals end up at the shelter and often are euthanized.” And obviously, the logical, proportional solution to that is to categorically ban all pets.

  • Rush Limbaugh: “If liars could fly, the White House would be an airport.” And you’d be a fucking UFO.

  • Once again: Climategate was a puffed-up farce that had absolutely nothing to do with the science and everything to do with ideologues and denialist cranks injecting more noise into a non-existing debate. Can we please stop pretending that there’s any scientific dissent on the matter now? Hmm?
