Ken Hutcherson: First Class Pussy

This tells you all you need to know about Ken Hutcherson: On a Sunday when Tarico was present, Hutcherson was preaching on gender roles. During his sermon, Hutcherson stated, “God hates soft men” and “God hates effeminate men.” Hutcherson went on to say, “If I was in a drugstore and some guy opened the door…

Via Balko, an absolutely ridiculous story out of New Hampshire. Some amusing fellow sent some “awards” to a local police station: They were real looking enough. Three wooden plaques each embossed with a gold police shield, a small gun piece and each engraved with an officer’s name. But these “plaques” sent to the police department…

And unsurprisingly found at the Worldnutdaily, which seems to specialize in this sort of counter-factual whining. This time it’s Greg Laurie with a column entitled The ugly results of banning God from the culture. The first and most obvious question: what culture could he possibly be talking about? It surely can’t be the United States…

D’Souza’s Continuing Idiocy

Dinesh D’Souza is back and he’s still peddling the “Muslims hate us because of liberals” nonsense. Naturally, the AFA is promoting that nonsense. D’Souza has recently released the paperback version of his New York Times best-selling book The Enemy at Home: The Cultural Left and Its Responsibility for 9/11. He says leaders of the cultural…

Judge Imprisoned Over Crucifix Fight

This is an unbelievable story. An Italian judge has been sentenced to a year in prison for refusing to hear cases in a courtroom with a crucifix hanging on the wall. But guess what? All Italian courtrooms have to have such crucifixes in them as the result of an order issued under Mussolini in 1926.…

No More Mrs. Nice Guy, Eh

Everyone’s been predicting it. Since Obama started so clearly kicking Hillary Clinton’s behind in state after state over the last few weeks, people have been predicting a serious heating up of the rhetoric and for Hillary to go seriously negative. I was surprised it didn’t happen in the last debate, and in fact was so…

If I Were Married….

This would be my life: And when you mouseover it says, “What do you want me to do? LEAVE? Then they’ll keep being wrong!” Guilty as charged.

Youtube Gems: Rush

There are few bands as polarizing as Rush. There’s rarely an in-between with this band, you either love them to the point of slavish devotion or hate them so much that you want to stab yourself in the ears with an icepick when you hear them. I was probably in the first group for most…

Superdelegates Switching to Obama

An AP survey of Democratic superdelegates reveals significant movement from Clinton to Obama. As Obama has reeled off 11 straight primary victories, some of the superdelegates are having second — or third — thoughts about their public commitments. Clinton still leads among superdelegates — 241 to 181, according to the AP survey. But her total…

Racist Threats to Obama Increasing

Hatewatch reports on the growing number of threats of racial violence toward Barack Obama found on webpages and bulletin boards of white supremacists. Which makes it all the more appalling that the Secret Service apparently gave an order to halt weapons screening outside an Obama appearance in – of all places – Dallas.
