Warning: What you are about to read should be done so with your mind’s best approximation of a Southern, Hillbilly from Tennessee (read, “Tannersee“) accent. Don’t say you weren’t warned. :)

Didja heer that Stephen Colbert might run fur Prezident? I might jess vote fur ‘em too. ‘Cause you doan have to be a pacificist, like Dorothy Day for instance, to know that

sayin’ stuff like what you’ll heer below is jess plain wrong. You jess have to be a Catholic who has read even just a small fracshun o’ the Catechism to node that what you’ll heer below is miles, and miles, off coarse.

Rodney Dangerfield, For President

Or is it the invisible man? That “person who shall remain nameless” has the 2nd highest number of delegates in the Republican Primary race so far. Mr. Jon Stewart again with the facts, [Read more...]

A Great Idea For Cell Phone Etiquette…

One of the best I’ve heard, anyway. You know, aside from saying “could you please turn off your cell phone during dinner? Thanks.” Do tell? Here you go. From the editors at The Week,

How ‘The Phone Stack’ is Civilizing Dinners out with Friends
Tired of cell phones interrupting every meal? A clever new game poses a solution. [Read more...]

Zombies…RUN! To the Theaters, That Is

I have to admit that I enjoy movies that have vast hordes of extras in the cast who play zombies. I’ve had fun with zombies here on the blog recently when, inspired by the drop-dead apocalyptic day of reckoning that was expected last year failed to materialize. You know, because Christ said clearly that,

But of that day or hour, no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. [Read more...]

Thank God for Truth Telling Fools

Like Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Because nowadays, evidently, only satirical comedy shows can provide the low-down on what our Ruling Elites are up to. Like this quickie you never saw on the Sunday Morning Talking Heads shows. Besides, Brian Williams isn’t allowed to analyze news. Not like this, anyway. [Read more...]

Grief causes many reactions. Sometimes violence, usually denial, and when something takes the wind out of your sails, sometimes, nay, oftentimes, a sense of humor saves the day. In fact, it’s been proven that laughter often performs miracles, pulling folks out of depressions, helping them find hope, even stimulating physical recovery from injuries. [Read more...]

Thoughts On Politics From the Bastion of Catholic Social Commentary

Ha! Made you look. Because actually, there is no such thing. If there was, see, you would be getting your recommendations on who to vote for straight from the pulpit. And we all know how well that would go over, don’t we? [Read more...]

Fresh from Iowa, the New Top Tier…Updated!

Well there you have it folks, your new and shiny “top tier.” And it was a pretty good horse race too, huh? Right down to the wire.

Remember me earlier today talking about New Advent, and keeping up with spiritual posts? Well I was pleased to find this myth-busting post by Ryan McMacken entitled, 6 Myths Catholics Tell About Libertarians. You should go check it out and see if it reminds you of any solid Catholic teaching. Solidarity, subsidiarity, and maybe even shades of distributism. Wacky, crazy, and downright un-Amurikin.

Cheap Speed for the Land-Locked Masses!

I think I can make one of these.

Heh! Take this you weird, expensive dolphin jet-pack loving, one-percenters!
