  • Bob, Fox isn’t a perpetual motion machine, it’s a perpetual MORON machine.

  • When I went to get a driver’s permit the woman at the S.O.S office, the woman told me my state ID and Social Security card wasn’t good enough and if I wanted to take the test for the permit I would need my birth certificate and two proofs of residency. I’ve always carry my State ID, my social security card,two credit cards, my medical card and heck I still have my student ID which doubles as a debit card from Oakland University and I haven’t been there since 2009. I was like fuck it and went to Target to buy “The Amazing Spider-Man” for my PS3.

    As for Rush, you better not tell him the plot of “Batman Begins” because he might think it’s anti-gun because when Bruce Wayne was a kid he saw his parents getting gun down or the plot to “Superman” the movie because he might think it’s a socialist environmental movie because one when Superman saves someone’s life he doesn’t charge them and two watching krypton exploding it could be view as if we don’t take care of the earth we could be next.

    “Pollution helped grow forests across Southeast U.S.” is right up there with “carbon dioxide can’t be poisonous because it’s natural.” *headdesk*

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one to think Idiocracy isn’t a great movie (I think it’s mostly lazy and stupid, but that’s just me).

    Come on, Chez, Stephanie Cutter did not say Mitt Romney committed a felony. She even went on The Situation Room to clarify. Mediaite had an article on it on Monday. (Sorry to make a big deal out of a throwaway line, but sensible people echoing Righty spin irritates me.)

    “There’s a difference between flat-out illegal and just plain unethical.” And Mitt Romney—ably assisted by his batallions of lawyers and accountants—exploits that difference very effectively. My guess is that Romney’s tax returns would show direct involvement with Bain Capital after the magic date of February of 1999, but that’s just a guess.

    Mitt Romney’s entire candidacy is predicated on the notion that his experience in the private sector will make him an effective president, but his campaign is declaring all questions about that experience to be out of bounds. I find that both hilarious and—because it seems to be working with our glorious news media—seriously disturbing.

    What makes the whole New Black Panther Party hubbub amusing and galling in equal measures is that that infamous polling place in Philadelphia is in a predominantly black area of the city. So who exactly are the two doofuses on that video supposed to be intimidating?

    I know everyone’s seen this before, but this moment of unintended candor comes from the July 8 LA Dog Trainer:

    A New York City donor a few cars back, who also would not give her name, said Romney needed to do a better job connecting. “I don’t think the common person is getting it,” she said from the passenger seat of a Range Rover stamped with East Hampton beach permits. “Nobody understands why Obama is hurting them.

    “We’ve got the message,” she added. “But my college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies — everybody who’s got the right to vote — they don’t understand what’s going on. I just think if you’re lower income — one, you’re not as educated, two, they don’t understand how it works, they don’t understand how the systems work, they don’t understand the impact.”

    And since the nails ladies don’t vote right, dammit, we’ll keep them from voting!

    I won’t bother to comment on the inanity of Rush Limbaugh.

    “I really love it when you do the D’Onofrio in Men In Black voice.” Seconded.

    Happy first anniversary, guys! (Erm … that doesn’t sound quite right, does it?) And 15,000 posts is quite an achievement, Bob. Congratulations. *stands and applauds both milestones*
