Saturday Stuff

Hey, remember that ultra-stupid right wing talking point about how African Americans wouldn’t support marriage equality since, well…I mean, everybody knows that African Americans are more culturally conservative than white people, right?

Wrong (here, and Paul Broun remains as big a bonehead as ever…kudos to Rep. John Lewis, and a pox on Andrea Mitchell and her alleged disconnect about “many African Americans” and marriage equality)…

Update 5/23/12: Uh, yep.
…and by the way, aren’t you glad you use Dial? Don’t you wish everybody did? J

Friday Stuff

Ever wonder how Willard Mitt Romney got so stinking rich? Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich explains (and yes, I know it’s no crime in and of itself to be worth a lot of money, blah blah blah).

(Also, I know I said something earlier about shutting down for technical issues, but that will come later than I thought, as it turns out, for anyone keeping score at home.)...

…and I can think of no more appropriate tune as an accompaniment than this one (and by the way, RIP Chuck Brown).

Thursday Stuff

Time to hold Hosni Mubarak Walker responsible, people (more here)…

…and RIP Donna Summer – hardly a disco fan, but I am a fan of great talent.

Wednesday Stuff

I’m probably about five and a half months early for this, but here it is anyway...

...and inspired loosely (very loosely) from the latest post from here, I give you the following (time for a change of pace).

Tuesday Stuff

Once again, I give you the wisdom of Seth MacFarlane via Peter Griffin (well, Brian mainly)…

…and this song reminds me a bit of a nightmare I once had after I saw too many 8mm films in phys ed class one day…and no, I was never in charge of working the projector.

Monday Stuff

I give you more for the sorry file of Willard Mitt Romney, all-but-named Repug presidential nominee, as noted here (and please take note that Number 44 stands up and lets us know who is behind this bit of truth-telling, as opposed to Karl Rove, American Crossroads or whatever, and ALEC and the “U.S.” Chamber of Commerce, among other Citizens United beneficiaries)…

Sunday Stuff

(By the way, this blog is probably going to shut down for a little while starting about Tuesday due to technical issues. I’m not sure how long it will be out of commission. When I know more, so will you.)

Putting aside the fact that Grover Norquist shouldn’t show his face in respectable company anywhere on the planet (and it was strangely entertaining watching Margaret Hoover trying not to laugh too hard lest her conservative puppet masters decide to send her back to the factory), I have to say that this was a pretty good “New Rules” segment from Bill Maher…

…and given last week’s revelations about a certain Willard Mitt Romney, I think this song is appropriate.
