Vice Presidential debate liveblog

Okay, going to not quite liveblog this, since we’re probably going to start just a bit late and DVR is magical. But I’ll still update as we watch, about every 10 minutes or so. So, I am looking forward to this debate. A lot. More than any presidential debate, for certain. (The president has to ...

Suicide is cheaper 4

A lot of you may not know this, but I used to be an EMT-B. I volunteered on a 911 ambulance service, and spent most of my time running out of fire stations in Commerce City. Commerce City (aka Combat Shitty) is an industrial area of Denver where there are a lot of poor and ...

First Presidential Debate Liveblog

Okay, so let’s see what snark I can come up with between drinks. I have come well prepared with beer, cider (thanks Isaac) and THE KRAKEN. Pre-debate show is on. Still can’t believe they closed down I-25. Way to make everyone in Denver hate both candidates. 1848: Debate is soon, but until then I am ...

Entitled

So if you haven’t watched the Jon Stewart bit about Chaos on Bullshit Mountain, you should. It’s okay. I’ll wait. I haven’t seen Jon Stewart this pissed off in a long, long time. Probably not since Sarah Palin was saying that liberals (you know, like those awful people in New York City) aren’t real Americans. ...

No, I’m not RTing your anger about Libya.

I’ve been seeing a lot of chatter on Facebook and Twitter, about how we should cut off all the foreign aid to Libya and other countries that are currently experiencing anti-US riots and protests. I guess it’s easy to get all het up about us giving money to people who supposedly hate us. No, I’m ...

LOL your personhood amendment

I’d heard that we were going to get the Son of the Revenge of the Personhood Amendment from the Black Lagoon in Colorado this year. I rolled my eyes so damn hard that I think I might have pulled a muscle. Oh, guess not.  The attempt to get the Personhood Amendment (tl;dr version: fetuses have rights, ...

No. No you did not misspeak.

In case you missed the news flash, Todd Akin, congressman and candidate for Senate in Missouri, is a despicable shitbag who lacks even basic understanding of human biology: “First of all, from what I understand from doctors, (pregnancy from rape) is really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV in a clip posted to YouTube by the Democratic ...

The word will break cement.

We reached our hands out to the people who, for some reason, consider us their enemies, and they spat into our open hands. “You are not sincere,” they said to us. Too bad. Do not judge us according to your behavior. We spoke sincerely, as we always do—we said what we thought. We were unbelievably ...

Situational assessment: GROSS.

Twitter is exploding about the situation with Julian Assange. I am averting my eyes and feeling creeped out. There is nothing in this situation that is not gross. Assange is wanted in Sweden over suspicion of sexual assault on two Swedish women. Gross. This is being downplayed by nearly everyone who is a fan of ...
