Humorous


This has absolutely nothing to do with politics.  However, my fear of cats is growing by the minute.

“They show extraordinary intelligence, even problem-solving. Especially the big one. We bred eight originally, but when she came in she took over the pride and killed all but two of the others. That one… when she looks at you, you can tell she’s working things out.” – Robert Muldoon

The context of this clip really isn’t that important. I just wish I were an Irish citizen so I could vote for Paul Gogarty. Not because I agree with his politics – I’m not entirely familiar with the Irish Green Party, which he runs under – but because he makes for some great television. If only C-SPAN were this exciting.

New Left Media is at it again, this time interviewing the people who would brave hours in line to get their copy of Going Rogue signed by the former governor of Alaska and potential future presidential candidate, Sarah Palin. As usual, the questions are broad and the interviewer, Chase Whiteside, passively lets the interviewees self-destruct by displaying their lack of knowledge on just about everything. Sure, going to a liberal rally and you’ll find just as many buffoons who couldn’t tell you a single thing about Barack Obama, but it’s so much funnier to watch Republicans make fools of themselves.

“I’m a supporter of gay rights. And not a closet supporter, either. From the time I was a kid, I have never been able to understand attacks upon the gay community. There are so many qualities that make up a human being, by the time I get through with all the things that I really admire about people, what they do with their private parts is probably so low on the list that it is irrelevant.”



You eat fifty hardboiled eggs and then maybe I’ll value your opinion.


This may seem like an odd video for a politically-oriented blog – that is until you remember that religion is ingrained in politics in every country throughout the world. The sooner oppressive and corrupt institutions such as the Vatican and Al-Qaeda disintegrate, the better. While I am all for religious freedom of the individual, when a religion’s corruption, bigotry, and hypocrisy begins to affect others, then I have major problems.

It really blows my mind that I have never come across these Mr. Deity webisodes, especially since they have been around for a few years and I’m always perusing the interwebs for sites and blogs dealing with the absurdity of religion. It took the blog of the awesome PZ Myers to point out that PZ himself was making an appearance in one of the videos for my discovery and I’ve been sitting here for forty-five minutes watching video after video – and it has been time well spent. Check out a few of my favorites below. PZ plays the scientist in the third video down..
