The Top Ten Conservative Idiots (No. 116)

In this week’s list from Democratic Undergraound, Ann Coulter says that Joe McCarthy was right in blacklisting Americans, George Bush hides a 25% increase in Medicare premiums, and a Hindu gets mistaken for a Muslim (!!) and beaten up by fans of Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. My favorite part of the Conservative Idiots list

Supreme Court Strikes Down Sodomy Laws

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court struck down a ban on gay sex Thursday, ruling that the law was an unconstitutional violation of privacy.

Top ten queerest straight people

Via the New York Press: “New York’s 10 queerest straight folk.” As more and more gay men and lesbians strive to become virtually normal—married, house in the suburbs, 2.5 children and wood-paneled station wagon—it’s worth pointing out that heterosexuals possessing queerness probably exhibit more tendencies once thought of as “gay” than many gay people. …

People’s Temple

DVR and “the Office”

I got a Digital Video Recorder the other day as part of my regular digital cable package. I can record 50 hours of TV digitally using the program guide, record two shows at the same time, watch picture-in-picture, and various other cool things. This kicks ass.

Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator

Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator: Nothing about this really, I was just trying to remember the name of it.

Impeach Bush, I Tell You

Interesting — John Dean is saying that George Bush’s lies about mythical weapons of mass destruction are enough to warrant him being impeached. And John Dean would know, wouldn’t he?

It’s Monday – Bush Still Sucks

What asshat things is the “president” doing today? No Weapons of Mass Destruction. First, review all the statements our esteemed White House made about WMD prior to the war, in order to justify it.
