Friday Genius Ten “Who Wants Mac and Soy Cheese?” Edition

Last, we saw a band at the Continental Club that I think has a lot of appeal: Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears. The lead singer especially has a great voice, but the whole band is amazing. Black Joe Lewis – Lolla clip @ Yahoo! Video They’re an Austin-based band,…

Principles of Enragement

Shorter Abe Greenwald: tiny Muslim brains cannot understand the big words of Barack Obama, and, in fact, any effort to engage the wider world of Islam in a respectful and direct manner would be a symbol that we think they’re all murderous savages out to kill us. Therefore, it’s much…

The light bulb comes on over Dear Leader’s head

The dolt finally figured out that the buck stops here — his total destruction of the country just might have had a hand in a change at the top, according to Bush. (CNN): President Bush told an interviewer that his presidency may have helped Barack Obama win the White House.…

Bias! The Home Game

Crack media watchers NewsBusters are super pissy because the Chicago Tribune is covering Barack Obama a bunch. To be clearer: the hometown newspaper of the President-Elect of the United States of America is spending a ton of time covering said President-Elect, particularly on days where he comes back to said…

Tidying up post

As of this morning, John Ziegler is beating my ass in the “who’s the bigger wingnut?” contest from last night. The results are 68.3% to 31.7%. Fear not for my feelings, sympathetic readers. I had very little doubt that even the injection of rants about “homosexualists” and the heavy use…

Chuck Norris on gay anger over Prop 8

This column is so ludicrous, given that the aging action star makes a living pretending to kick ass. More importantly, Chuck Norris is a hypocrite calling for mob rule at the ballot box. I’d love to see how he’d feel if the rights of his fellow “Christians” were subject to…

SC priest: no communion for Obama voters

Is the Catholic church really throwing down the gauntlet on this one, or do we have one Palmetto State priest freelancing for hype? A South Carolina Roman Catholic priest has told his parishioners that they should refrain from receiving Holy Communion if they voted for Barack Obama because the Democratic…

I Know You By The Wink Of Your Eye

Were I one to accuse others of racism, I would surely point out how racist it is that a person doesn’t “know” Barack Obama after two years of being at the apex of the national spotlight, but can look into Sarah Palin’s eyes through the TV and know that this…

NYT: ‘For South, a Waning Hold on National Politics’

There’s an interesting piece in the NYT by Adam Nossiter that makes some apt observations about what the results of the election mean for Republicans and the South. By voting so emphatically for Senator John McCain over Mr. Obama – supporting him in some areas in even greater numbers than…
