The Bigotry Quotient

Never fear, this isn’t about Paula Deen. She’s just some kind of weird canary in a coal mine. It’s the coal mine that should bother us. You see, what I find so freaking not understandable in the second decade of the 21st century, nearly fifty years after the civil rights law and the beginning of desegregation in the South, is how anyone could think a “plantation party” would be a good idea. She said she wanted to dress-up “little” black people, I guess to pretend she was back in some […]

The Tea Party’s Feudal Lord

It boggles my mind how the tea baggers can get it so wrong. I think most Tea Party folks probably trace their ancestry back to Europe. Most probably they imagine they originally hail from England, since once upon a time Merry Olde was considered to be our “mother country.” […]

The Agenda

The way I see it, we’re preaching to the choir. If you’re reading this, then you most likely somewhat agree with us, or you are at least tolerant of the our viewpoint. Unless you’re a trolling teabagger, then you’re here because you want to go slack jawed and slap yourself, so you can go on Facebook and post a link to our site and tell everyone how laughable we are. If you’re the latter, you’re going to be disappointed. You’ll not find much fodder for your amazement here. The way […]

Today’s Video: Donald Duck Meets Glenn Beck

Being baby-boomers who grew up in the 1950s and 60s, we couldn’t resist this way too funny take on Glenn Beck and the rest of the right-wing radio talker crowd. It’s almost enough to make us forget that Disney, in our estimation, is on the wrong side of the culture wars. It’s almost enough to make us yearn for the days when Uncle Walt visited us in our living rooms each and every Sunday night. We were younger then, and much more naive… httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfuwNU0jsk0

The Voucher Vultures

Radio talker Allen Hunt’s signature line is that his show “isn’t about right and left, it’s about right and wrong.” At first this sounds good, but after you listen to him for about fifteen minutes you realize his opinion is not much different than that of most of the other guys on AM radio, the right is right and the left is wrong. As I was driving home from work the other night, he was doing his favorite schtick, which is bashing Obama. On this night, he was all over […]

Today’s Video: Palin Plans World Takeover

This way too cute video is a parody of Sarah Palin, Larry King, the music business and politics. Oddly enough, this animated Palin, meant to poke fun, comes off as much more intelligent that the real Sarah we’ve all learned to love to hate. And Larry King, he hasn’t looked this young since… Come to think of it, he’s never looked this young. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IL61unNULE

Tea Party Television on CBS

The ends justify the means. At least that’s the message I’m getting from two new cop shows on CBS, both of which indicate it’s ok for law enforcement to step on every constitutional right, so long as charges stick and society is protected. It’s as if the Strike Team on The Shield is suddenly a shining example of good, effective police work. Friday night, the Tiffany Network premiered Blue Bloods, the new Tom Selleck vehicle. A character driven police drama revolving around a family of New York City cops, the […]

Today’s Video: Tommorow Belongs to the Tea Party?

First watch this famous scene from the movie Cabaret, which needs no explanation: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNMVMNmrqJE&start=20 We were reminded of this scene when we saw the real-life scene from a recent Tea Party rally that follows:
