Dispatches from the Creation Wars

I’m Jonesing, Baby

STACLU’s blog has been down almost a week and I’m starting to have stupidity withdrawals. I need a hit, man. Worse yet, Gribbit says he may have to stop blogging completely. I may have to sponsor him or something so I can keep my supply of inane rants going. I can’t just quit cold turkey; I admit, I’m weak.

    Has that Gibbons guy returned from his live-sauropod hunt in the Middle East? And what’s Sun Myung Moon been up to lately?

    Anyone else notice that when a woman gets involved with a conservative like Gribbit, they usually “discover” their conservative roots and shift from whatever ideology (or lack of ideology) to conservatism? I’ve seen this a few times first hand, and curiousity sent me to “mrsgribbit.com,” frankly I had a hard time believing such a person existed.

    My favorite comment from these women is, “I’m just expressing my true beliefs.” To which I reply, “why do you only express those beliefs when [instert boyfriend/fiance/husband’s name here] has his hand on your back?”

    I’m starting to have stupidity withdrawals

    Are you in a coma, Ed? Even without STACLU, there’s enough stupidity around that, if there was a 0.01 per mil Federal tax on it, it could wipe out the National Debt, feed all the world’s hungry, and build a bridge across every body of water in Alaska. You just gotta keep lookin’!

    dogmeat— I have a suspicion that any woman who would refer to herself as “Mrs. (insert screen name of guy she’s attached to)” would be likely to adopt his political beliefs wholesale and embrace them as her own.

    There’s always Mrs. Gribbit, who recently wrote how she is opposed to censorship and book banning. Does she not realize the ACLU agrees with her?

    She also writes that she graduated high school last year, but in her about page she claims to be a PhD. student.

    I just checked Gribbit’s blog and said to myself, “How can you screw up the fact that Gerald Ford played on the Michigan football team and THEN served in World War II?”

    This just really ticked me off. Sue me. I’m an all-sports nut.

    Ed, please remember! Anytime you need a good hit of “Stupid” to get your juices flowing, there is always DaveScott Springer (You may know him as DaveTard)at Uncommonly Dense. Don’t forget, he is a self-proclaimed autodick with an IQ of over 150.

    Mrs. Gribbit is being technically correct in the way that Ron Artest and Shaq are technically rap artists. She graduated high school with AP credit which popped her into college as a sophomore, and she eventually wants a PhD.

    It’s silly resume padding, but then I would exepect silliness from anyone who sees Gribbit as a soulmate.

    I’d love to go into more detail, but I’m preparing for my future as an MD/PhD at Johns Hopkins.

    (Translation: I just googled “MCAT”.)
