Batton Lash is a nice man and a great cartoonist

Check out his interview over at Tom Spurgeon's Comics Reporter. I am mentioned tangentially.

Cue up yet another disappointment

I don't know who nominated me for Best Humor Blog over at this deal, but I appreciate the thought.

And no, I don't get why Burge wasn't nominated. He's actually funny.

My congratulatory ad for President-Elect Barack Hussein Obama

The Washington Post is graciously allowing us to pay $10 each for classified ads congratulating BHO on his inauguration. And they must be congratulatory. No bringing up Wright or Ayers or Rezko or Blago or Alinsky or any other topic that might furrow the brow of the Messiah.

So, okay, fine. Here's my ad:

Gratefully, everyone told Bush, “Enough.” New times! Change! Obama makes me incredibly elated!

If you need me to explain the real message in the preceding text, drop me an e-mail.

It might cause a Star Trek floating-robot logic loop

What would've happened if the Iraqi shoe-thrower had followed up by asking a tough question about Obama's tax plan? How would the lefty blogs, and the lefty newspapers they're replacing, cope?

As he was being dragged out, he yelled, "Don't lace me, bro!"

The Office of the President-Elect has already released a statement denying any involvement in the purchase of the flying footwear.

Hey, if Bush is such a tyrant, why hasn't this guy been lowered into an industrial shredder yet?

Do they let you wear your hairpiece in prison?

Or is it bagged up with your other personal effects?

I'm really sick of politics

Just thought you should know.

Looks like he's been keeping all those loaves and fishes for himself

See more Jack Black videos at Funny or Die

It's 3 minutes and 13 seconds, and I defy you to sit through the whole thing.

Hey, didn't blacks and Hispanics vote overwhelmingly for Prop. 8? I wonder when somebody will do a mini-musical about that.

From 57 to 43 with love

Okay, what's done is done. Time to get over it and come together.

Quick note about the Mumbai terrorists

They were terrorists. The people who are funding and training them are terrorists. Sure, they're also "militants," and "gunmen," and I guess if you're feeling particularly euphemistic, you could even describe them as "practitioners." But the word so many people keep dancing around is terrorists.

Oh, and they were Muslims too. How about that! And they targeted Jews, who make up something like 0.005% of the population of India. What a weird coincidence that these "militants" just so happened to stumble upon the handful of Jews in the whole country. When these brave men were beating a two-year-old child, not to mention torturing and murdering his father and pregnant mother in front of him, at some point these mighty warriors must have realized that the three of them were Jewish and people might get the wrong idea.

To the media outlets that are turning a blind eye to the clearly stated motives of these murdering, child-abusing, Islamofascist anti-Semite thugs: You deserve your impending financial ruin. We no longer want what you're selling.

The new boss says: "My administration will remain steadfast in support of India’s effort to catch perpetrators* and bring them to justice." That's great. How about bringing them to room temperature? It's what they want anyway, so it works out for everybody.

As usual, Burge says it better than I ever could.

*A fine addition to the euphemism list...

I'm maintaining the same schedule as always:

When I've got something to post, I'll post it. Would you rather come here and read a bunch of silly crap? Wait, don't answer that.

...from the prestigious law firm of Bunny, Bunyan, & Claus

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, one of my very hard working research assistants has uncovered a piece of evidence which may well turn out to be the final nail in the coffin. I believe it demonstrates conclusively that Gov. Sarah Palin was never pregnant. It has nothing to do with Bristol, or Willow, or anyone else. Because it is so critical, I am proceeding slowly with this one... talking to my attorney among other things.

That's from the appropriately named palindeception.com. I know people who still take Andrew Sullivan seriously, even after his months-long obsession with this nonsense, this Trig Trutherism. Sarah Palin really scares these lunatics.

Which is nice!

P.S. In the comments to the above-linked post, Tina in CA clarifies:

It's not about Sarah bashing, it's about being a guardian for the American public and exposing Palin for the narcissistic fraud that she really is.
