Mittens Romney, flanked by wife Ann, tells a Polish woman a Polak joke today in Gdansk, Poland, swiftly bringing the wrath of the Polish press upon him during his visit to Poland. Undeterred by the negative press, Mittens publicly guffawed, &ld… Read full post »

A London tabloid expresses its opinion of Mittens’ visit to London on the occasion of the city’s hosting of the 2012 Olympic games.
The 2012 Olympics have gotten off to a great start — and I’m not even into sports. (Well, men’s diving and m… Read full post »
Late NASA astronaut Sally Ride (pictured above in 1984), who was the first American woman in space (in 1983 at age 32), died of pancreatic cancer yesterday at age 61. When I first saw the news of her death and saw her photos, I though, “Damn, she was a lesbian!”… Read full post »
If this guy is elected (or allowed to steal office a la 2000) in November, there will be more massacres. (More Photoshop jobs on this theme here…)
The United States of America is one big dysfuckingfunctional family.
Every once in a while, one of us snaps and kills a lot… Read full post »
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez speaks at a news conference in Caracas on Monday. If a “devil” like “dictator” Chavez didn’t exist, the right-wing, pro-corporate Repugnican Tea Party traitors and the center-right, pro-corporate, sellout “Demo… Read full post »
“The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud,” CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, who long had been rumored to be gay, proclaimed in his official coming-out e-mail that was released… Read full post »
Wow. Team Obama isn’t even bothering to make false promises anymore. It has become entirely about the dash for cash.
On June 24 I received a fundraising e-mail from Stephanie Cutter, Obama’s “deputy campaign manager,” titled, “We’re getting outspent.&r… Read full post »
Earthlings from the ship Prometheus visit the ship of humanoid aliens in Ridley Scott’s epic “Prometheus,” in which Scott unfortunately bit off far more than he actually could chew.

Two headlines on Yahoo! News today make an interesting juxtaposition: “Frustrated Liberals Want More From Obama”* and “Romney and GOP Raise More Than Obama and Democrats.”
Gee, could there be a connection?
Team Romney, y0u see, reports that it raked in more than $76 million la… Read full post »
Unlike both Barack Obama and Mittens Romney, a Green Party president wouldn’t be just a puppet of the corporations.
I still believe that President Barack Obama, for his ubiquitous campaign promises of “hope” and “change,” publicly came out for same-sex marriage too late in his presidency — the time to do the right thing is (almost) always right now — and I still believe that Oba… Read full post »

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett is a Mormon and a co-chair of fellow Mormon multi-millionaire Mittens Romney’s presidential campaign in Arizona. The Repugnican Tea Party traitor Bennett (photographed above in November with Repugnican Tea Party Arizona Gov.… Read full post »
Um, let’s not call Barack Obama “the first gay president,” but let’s credit him with being influential within the black community where equal human and civil rights for non-heterosexuals and non-gender-conforming individuals are concerned.
Newsweek’s May 21 cover… Read full post »
President Barack Obama made headlines today by having proclaimed in an interview with ABC News, “...[A]t a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.”
I can tell… Read full post »
So Vice President Joe Biden today on “Meet the Press” said that he supports same-sex marriage.
Fire and ice!
You come on like a flame,
Then you turn a cold shoulder!
Fire and ice!
I want to give you my love,
But you’ll just take a little piece of my heart…

Infanticide suddenly seems like a good thing…
Most people who read blogs probably assume that most bloggers want to appeal to as wide an audience as possible — and therefore, never to (gasp!) offend anybody.
I don’t think that I’ve ever come out and said it, b… Read full post »
Alex and Kelby, above, are two of the victims of school bullying who are featured in The Weinstein Company’s documentary “Bully.” Alex, who was born prematurely, in the documentary is portrayed as being called “Fishface” and routinely physicall… Read full post »
Former first lady of Massachusetts Ann Romney is shown with her multi-millionaire husband last month, above, and in 1969, the year of their marriage, below. Mrs. Mittens and the Mittens campaign would have you believe that she’s been the typical stay-at-home mom, just as Mr. M… Read full post »

In a nation that only claims to value the freedom of speech, Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen was suspended for five games for having made comments to TIME magazine that (gasp!) offended Miami’s right-wing, pro-plutocratic C/… Read full post »
Prick Santorum’s wife Karen cries today as he announces in Pennsylvania that he has dropped his bid for the presidency. This piece is about Prick, not his wife, but I think that this news photo is pretty fucking funny.
So apparently Prick Santorum didn’t want the add… Read full post »
Ah, Easter Sunday.
No better day (except Christmas, perhaps) to discuss religion.
The Los Angeles Times’ website had two interesting headlines this past week. The first, posted Thursday, was “Sen. Hatch Predicts Obama Campaign to ‘Throw Mormon Church’ at Romney.” It begi… Read full post »

No, wait — his wife (pictured with him above in Wisconsin on Friday) also thinks that he should keep going because it would be so cool to be first lady! So that’s two people.

So this exchange between U.S. President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitri Medvedev was caught on a live microphone today:
President Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this – this can be solved, but it’s important for him [incoming Russian President Vladi… Read full post »
On Cuba, Pope Palapatine just hates the competition
A Cuban woman on Friday sits under a banner in Havana announcing the impending visit of Pope Palpatine. If the Cuban government were as evil as Palpatine claims it is, it probably wouldn’t let him set foot on the island… Read full post »
