Christian hypocrites


Hobby Lobby is taking a stand on Obamacare for its contraception mandate because, according to its president, “”We’re Christians, and we run our business on Christian principles.”

S0 how does he rationalize carrying products from China, where forced abortions are just part of that country’s horrendous human rights record.

Self-loathing much?

Allegedly gay Texas Gov. Rick Perry went to San Francisco today to argue that homosexuality, like alcoholism, is just another lifestyle choice.

Hillary’s foreign policy resume includes voting for Iraq War


Worth remembering as Baghdad hangs in the balance.

Also worth remembering, as Dick Cheney prepares for the inevitable Fox News interview blasting Obama’s weakness, is this 1994 Dick Cheney interview in which he warns of an Iraqi quagmire.

It begins

Oh, how I’ve dreaded this day, among the most holy on the hipster calendar.  It’s Christmas morning for Europhiles, who, as I write this, are summoning every ounce of faux passion within their eager-to-please-the-right-people beings in preparation for Day 1 of the World Cup. They’ll act like they’ve been waiting their whole lives for this moment, but in reality most have been waiting about three…

Political shocker of the year!

Congrats to Da Brat on her big primary win over Eric Cantor in Virginia! I didn’t even know she was a Republican!

Hillary Clinton didn’t lose in ‘08 because she was a woman

Hillary Clinton didn’t lose in ’08 because she was a woman


Which is what I heard a talking head say earlier on CNN, a conclusion I fear will become repeated as fact.

Sexism, like racism, is still alive, but waning. But it didn’t keep Hillary from the presidency in 2008.

It was her unsubtle sense of entitlement, along with the clumsy attempts by her and her husband to divide the race with Obama on race, that doomed Hillary.

If that sounds harsh, look at…

Starfucking du jour


From Grantland’s conversation about “Edge of Tomorrow”:

We needed this movie from Tom Cruise. And Tom Cruise desperately needed to give it to us. …

Not like it’s a new feeling, but there’s always something a little disorienting about Cruise box-office disappointment. Other actors haveinfluence in American culture. Tom Cruise essentially is his influence in American culture. He’s coterminous with…

Via Politico:

Under the new plank, the Texas GOP recognizes “the legitimacy and efficacy of counseling, which offers reparative therapy and treatment for those patients seeking healing and wholeness from their homosexual lifestyle.”

The American Psychological Association and other major health organizations have condemned such counseling, which generally try to change a person’s sexual…

The Lamest Generation

free speech

In case you wondered who the most fragile “T-slur” is, its name is Hex and it lives in Chicago. That sentence may or may not have contained multiple slurs.

“That was one of the most hurtful parts,” Hex said, explaining the perceived insult was that Cox used the slur to refer to the group of people she joked about. “In that context, it was like being applied to all transgender people,” it said.…

H20 has feelings, too


Just got my Goop newsletter, featuring more fascinating musings by Gwyneth “War is Hell” Paltrow:

I am fascinated by the growing science behind the energy of consciousness and its effects on matter. I have long had Dr. Emoto’s coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water, how the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it.

Voice of a generation

I started following @Suey_Park (the genius behind the #CancelColbert crusade) and she doesn’t disappoint. I get most sad when I replay good memories in my head, so I do this thing where I try to cancel them out by remembering all the bad things,

The first review of Hillary’s new book

A collection of self-serving platitudes meant to deflect more than inform — just like almost every other memoir by a presidential candidate.
