A Million Ticking Breiviks

Monday, August 1st, 2011

The “normal” right wing crazies are distancing themselves as much as they can from Anders Breivik. The truth is, he’s a right-wing crazy, and he’s a Christian. Deal with it. This week’s On the Media had a segment on Breivik’s religious beliefs. Give it a listen. They play a clip from Bill O’Reilly, who desperately […]

The Alpha Course

Monday, July 11th, 2011

(Cartoon from The Rut) I was all set for my big comeback article tonight. It was going to be good. I was going to write about a high-pressure fundie recruitment ploy that utilizes intensive sales techniques, a la the dreaded timeshare sales pitch.

I’ve Been Unexpectedly Raptured

Via clips on YouTube, I have discovered an extremely funny British sitcom. It’s called Outnumbered, and it’s about a couple and their three kids. That description makes it sound like every other sitcom (especially every other bad sitcom) on the air. What sets this one apart is that it’s funny. The best member of the […]
