Bush says “Congress worst in 20 years.” All irony meters simultaneously explode. I just imagine Bush and Congress embroiled in a “No, you are!” “Noooo, you are!” “Nooooo you are times 10!” “You are times infinity!” – type battle of (COUGH) wits. That lasts about 10 minutes and they settle the fight with an emotional game of rock, paper, scissors, after which it is never spoken of again.

Cradle of humanity finally to teach evolution! The South African president finally decided to make teaching evolution a priority in schools. “Well, someone finally told me that what this theory is, and actually, Africa is quite the star of the story! Plus we’ve got all these old bones and fossils lying around so we might as well make use of them.” Although I exaggerate, the actual article is, in fact, much, much more depressing.

Catholics decide they don’t like Britney. What, so that music video from a couple years back, when she was in a whorish Catholic uniform asking to be hit, wasn’t enough? Britney responds that we all might like her better if we didn’t test her for drugs anymore.

Dumbledore is gay, so what? Have the fundies run out of *real* people to condemn for their sexuality and feign scandalization over?

The USA spent over $43 Billion on ‘intelligence’ last year. Hmmm, thats funny, I thought the NIH budget was half that…..

    If there were any Democrats with balls in Congress, they would say that Bush is the worst president in 154 years.

    And then apologize tearfully after the Republicans call them big meanies? The Democrats are as tough as as anyone, Karl, but you ask the impossible.

    evidently they did long ago, considering the “Murphy Brown” scandal hyped up by our then illustrious VP, Quayle.

    demonizing fictional characters with fictional characterizations has long been a tradition with evangelicals.

    not surprising, when you think just how far from reality their dissonance has gotten them.
