Jesse Helms is (Thankfully) Still Dead

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

I was cruising the internet looking for good photography, as I’ve been doing more often lately, and I came across this amusing advertisement from 1989: Jesse Helms was one of the most destructive senators we’ve ever endured. One of his little side projects was trying to defund the National Endowment for the Arts, because the […]

The Great Textbook War

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

I heard a great documentary on public (read: socialist) radio tonight. It’s called “The Great Textbook War”. It’s about a controversy in Kanawha County, West Virginia in 1974 about some new school textbooks. You can find the documentary’s download link in the sidebar of their website. The whole thing sounds eerily contemporary. The one difference […]

Bad Fundies!

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

(Image from Comically Vintage) I’ve spent the last hour looking for a good fundie “news” article to rip apart. I’ve come up empty-handed. This is happening to me more and more often. Everything they’re writing these days is so derivative. It’s all the same old crap. “Contraception is abortion!” “America was founded by and populated […]

Fundies Foil World Domination Plot

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

Two retired world conquerors tried to team up to make a comeback tonight, but their plans to take over the world have be thwarted—by fundies! Former evil genius (and now simple gay sidekick) Stewie Griffin had teamed up with former world conqueror, still-evil, semi-genius Microsoft to produce tonight’s Fox TV special Family Guy Presents: Seth […]

Marge Simpson: The Gateway Porn

Friday, October 16th, 2009

I don’t even know where to begin with this one. The American Family Association is upset that Marge Simpson is posing for Playboy. The AFA has gone beyond self-parody now. They’ve decided to target 7-11 in this campaign. That’s a big easy target that can stand in for Playboy itself. The fundies can’t very well […]

Cougar Town Offends the Perpetually Offended

Monday, October 5th, 2009

Has anybody watched Cougar Town? It has BJ’s overly-tighty-whiteys in a knot these days. I wasn’t planning to watch it, because most sitcoms aren’t funny enough. Now that BJ is pissed off about it, I should watch at least one episode to see just how far removed from reality BJ is. Ordinarily, I’d Tivo the […]

Bill’s Johnson Keeps It Up

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

Looking at pussy! (Oh, come on! You know I had to say it!) Bill Johnson of the American Decency Ass. is continuing his relentless pursuit of porn. His little tirade of a few days ago got picked up by the acme of journalism, OneNewsNow. And by “acme”, I mean: Pronunciation: \ˈak-mē\ Function: noun Etymology: Greek […]

Calvin Klein Using Porn to Sell Jeans

Friday, June 19th, 2009

We haven’t looked in on Bill Johnson and the American Decency Association in a while. Let’s see what they’re getting aroused over. We have a couple of new email alerts. A few days ago, he sent one with the breathless announcement: “Calvin Klein back at it again: 50 foot p–n ad” Apparently if you actually […]
