It came from Alabama

It came from Alabama

TALLADEGA — Alabama Rep. Steve Hurst wants you to know he is for gun rights.

The District 35 Republican from Talladega gets his message across at parades in a very unmistakable way: He uses a giant revolver as a parade float. (And a barbecue. The gun is actually not a balloon but a large barbecue shaped like a handgun.)

Cheering for the Red Sox is so Aught 10

Cheering for the Red Sox is so Aught 10

soccerfans

Those annoying fuckers who decided to become Red Sox fans after the perennial losers started winning have discovered a new passion — and this one has an accent.

Actually, hipsters started gravitating to soccer a decade ago but The New York Times is just catching on. The ironic backpack set’s fervor assures I’ll never be a fan of soccer — or futbol, if you’re tragically hip.

With fan interest…

John Rocker is ‘sick and disgusted’ by Hank Aaron

John Rocker is ‘sick and disgusted’ by Hank Aaron

rocker

I don’t agree with Hank Aaron’s statement implying opponents of President Obama are comparable to the Klansmen of generations past. I don’t think The Hammer meant to say that, to be honest. Later in that same interview Aaron said race relations have improved in America but there was still a “long ways to go.”

John Rocker proves him right.

His comments were deplorable and unbefitting of baseball’s…

Stupidest comment of the week

huckabee

And the week’s just one day old.

The floor is yours, Gov. Huckabee:

Fox News personality and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee stunned a New Hampshire crowd on Saturday by likening the federal government’s treatment of airport passengers to the totalitarian regime of Kim Jong-un.

‘My gosh, I’m beginning to think that there’s more freedom in North Korea sometimes than there is in the United…

Back in 2006, when the GOP was trying to pass a Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, Georgia Congressman Phil “John  C. Reilly will look like me in 20 years” Gingrey went to the House floor to argue that America’s image was at stake.

“This is probably the best message we can give to the Middle East in regards to the trouble we are having over there right now,” Gingrey saidin support of…

Conservative blowhards declare war on Colbert

Conservative blowhards declare war on Colbert

colbert

Miserable human being Rush Limbaugh on the Colbert hire:

CBS has just declared war on the Heartland of America.  No longer is comedy going to be a covert assault on traditional American values, conservatives.

Now it’s just wide out in the open.  What this hire means is a redefinition of what is “funny” and a redefinition of what is comedy, and they’re blowing up the 11:30 format under the guise…

The tyranny of the new left (and why you should be concerned)

On the Facebook page demanding Brandeis University rescind an honorary degree for Ayaan Hirsi Ali — the Somali-born activist who brought attention to the barbaric practices against women within Islamic fundamentalism, such as honor killings and female genital mutilation — commenters are reminded, “We expect tolerance of anyone who comments/participates with this page.”

That tolerance does not…
