Twitterdump 11/1

Here’s all the stuffs of twitter that didn’t make it onto the blarg yesterday.  I’ve decided “twitterdump” is a more apt name for these posts, so I’m sticking with it. Glenn Beck is Right “We need a businessman running this country, not a celebrity.” “Who’s your favorite president ever?” “Reagan, why?” Sign the kids [Read More...]

They should know.

Here’s a video of Republicans explaining why you shouldn’t vote for Mitt Romney. [Read more...]

Happy Halloween!

It’s been a very cynical day in the news.  That sucks, because Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! So here’s a Dalek.  Happy Halloween everybody!  :)  Be safe tonight. The Halloween candy I find irresistible: Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups.  They’re so good.  I’m eating light today just because I know Cambridge is going to [Read More...]

Early voting in Florida heavily favoring Obama.

On my electoral map, I’ve already given Florida to Romney.  Nate Silver has Romney at almost 60% to win in Florida and lately that has been trending up.  However, it looks like I may be a little premature.  Romney is getting crushed in early voting and the GOP knows it. If Romney doesn’t get Florida, [Read More...]

Voting is hot.

I fucking love this Obama ad. It’s funny.  It’s referencing sex.  So you can bet that the people who really value virginity are going to go apeshit. If you needed further proof about just how much the President has cheapened the Presidency, consider his latest ad, which not only compares voting for him for the [Read More...]

Seriously, Romney’s a scumbag.

So you know how Romney said he never paid less than 13% in taxes?  Then he didn’t deduct all his charitable donations (like, to the Mormon church) in 2011 so that would retroactively be true (otherwise he would’ve paid only 9% in taxes).  The 14.1% artificially inflated rate that Mitt paid in 2011 was less [Read More...]

Los Links Halloween Edition

Take all my twitterings from yesterday! Dinesh D’Souza is Now Being Accused of Stealing | Debunking Christianity RT @phillipanderson Ya know those firefighters fighting a neighborhood sized fire in the middle of a hurricane? Yeah.

Here we go again…

Yet another post having to explain the same damn things.  This time it’s in response to a piece on the message American Atheists posted on a truck that circled the third presidential debate and then followed Mitt Romney’s campaign bus out of town. In the article, Renee Nal says… Really? An Atheist group attacks Mormons [Read More...]

Romney goofs big in Ohio.

Romney just ran this ad in Ohio. The narrative is that Obama has done such a terrible job with the economy and businesses are struggling so much that Chrysler is moving jobs away from America.  Unfortunately for Mitt Romney, this is a gaff that exceeds not knowing where Iran is on a map (but still [Read More...]

Welcome Anne, the legal columnist.

In Little Rock I met Anne, an attorney who loves to write.  It occurred to me that many of the questions I get via email are about law, so I asked her if she’d be willing to write a legal column for the blog.  She agreed. Her column will run every Thursday and will be [Read More...]

Meat Loaf can’t sing anymore.

Listen up all you aspiring singers.  Do you want to know why you learn technique when you’re young and don’t test your high notes until you’re older?  Let me tell you a story about a guy named Marvin Lee Aday, otherwise known as Meat Loaf. Meat Loaf is what we call a Heldentenor (which translates [Read More...]

You go, Mizzou.

The Missouri Tigers were a pretty good team in the Big 12.  However, as newcomers to the SEC the Tigers have found life in the strongest football conference to be, well, difficult. But finally, this last weekend, they came up against the SEC’s traditionally weakest football team, the Kentucky Wildcats (1-8), and emerged with their [Read More...]

Patheos question: For whom will you vote?

Each week this month, Patheos has tossed out a question for its bloggers to answer.  Here is the one that just came down the pipe. Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve reached the fourth and final week of Election Month at Patheos. It’s been a really enjoyable conversation, and it’s been especially nice to see so many [Read More...]
