Los Links 10/18.

Here are all the juicy extras from twitter yesterday that didn’t make it onto the blog – this time with an irrelevant, but nostalgic picture of a character that was on my mind. Hey @MittRomney, I got u dis. http://bit.ly/Tvnera These are the lights Dinesh D’Souza had installed in his house. http://bit.ly/RGdmyB This is why [Read More...]

D’Souza was naughty.

Dinesh D’souza is one of those “top tier” Christian apologists who is always getting thrown at me.  You know Dinesh, right?  He’s the one who argues that Christianity makes someone more moral.  That’s why in his book, What’s So Great About Christianity, he wrote… “As fallible human beings we can be wrong about a lot [Read More...]

Tisha on Tosh.0.

Given all the doom and gloom on the blog lately, here’s a little ray of god damn sunshine. A while back I got to meet one of Christina‘s friends on a visit to St. Louis, Tisha.  She was a plucky, fun lady who was born without arms.  I even got to interview her (and get [Read More...]

Quote of the day: Newt Gingrich. Srsly.

Ok, so I don’t usually do a quote of the day post.  But this quote was just so delicious I made one anyway.  It’s Newt Gingrich dogging on Mitt Romney for the heartless way Romney makes money. I’m for capitalism. I’m for honest entrepreneurs investing, I’m for people creating businesses. Callista and I have created [Read More...]

God’s just a kid

Steven here… The last time I was at a conference me and my friends were approached by a Christian woman. She explained to us in a very serious tone that when she spoke to God she was informed by him that our lives had gone extremely bad. We informed this well meaning person that her [Read More...]

Ann Coulter’s joke is her ideology’s downfall.

In an apparent bid for the inhumanity Olympics, on National Coming Out Day Ann Coulter tweeted… With Coulter, it’s virtually impossible to tell if she’s serious or joking.  Either way, this is something pretty horrible to say.  Aaron McQuade with GLAAD summed it up perfectly. “There was a time in our culture’s history when, if [Read More...]

Los Links 10/17

Since I’m back in the saddle with writing and researching full-time for a week, I’ve found I have more material than I can blog about.  The extra goes on twitter.  However, I realize that not everybody has twitter so I think I’ll do a daily post where I just throw out those links.  I will [Read More...]

Modifications to my Skepticon 5 name tag.

At Skepticon 4 I gave a personal account of my struggle with anorexia, depression, and hallucinations.  It took quite a bit out of me and I’ve declined to give it again every since (though now I think I’d be willing again). But it was very worth it.  Everywhere I speak now I have people give [Read More...]


Checking out here folks. Sorry to cut it short. You keep track and have fun. Be safe! <3 9:17pm: For Mitt: Israel x2 Benghazi For Obama: Clinton 9:03pm: For Mitt: He wants children of illegal immigrants to join the military to become citizens?! Everyone finish your drink to keep your sanity! (just kidding.. kind of) [Read More...]

America, the live-blog!

10:41pm – Now that’s the Obama I voted for in 2008.  Total annihilation by Obama.  Romney is going to get punished by fact-checkers and lost the charisma battle.  Fuck yes!  Now time to go drunkenly flirt with my godless, wonderful girlfriend. Sleep well, everybody. 10:38pm – Mitt early in the debate: “My goal is to [Read More...]

We need a drinking game.

Ok, it’s been decided that I’m going to be back home in time for the debate, which means live-blogging.  It also means record amounts of frustration, a malady for which there is but one antidote: lots and lots of alcohol. I’m about to go get ready to head over to the SOMA meeting on the [Read More...]

Woman says women’s opinions are unreliable.

Janis Lane is the president of the Central Mississippi Tea Party.  She just did an interview with the Jackson Free Press in which she says women should not be allowed to vote. But do you think there are too many male politicians telling women what to do with their bodies?… Lane: I’m really going to [Read More...]

Paul Ryan goes to a soup kitchen to not feed the poor.

Oh good, another reason to despise Paul Ryan. It turns out that Paul Ryan barged into a soup kitchen the other day.  Of course, he didn’t do it to feed the poor, silly!  But the appearance of compassion might be worth a few votes, so away he went. You know that fake photo-op from Saturday [Read More...]

Romney’s tax plan makes no sense.

Colbert had a moderately funny clip the other night that asked a really good question. The Colbert Report Get More: Colbert Report Full Episodes,Political Humor & Satire Blog,Video Archive RED-TIE STEPHEN: Hey, he is looking out for the middle class. BLUE-TIE STEPHEN: He’s promising a 20% tax cut for the top 1%. RED-TIE STEPHEN: Ah, [Read More...]
