McCain Takes First Step Towards Becoming Total Ass

From the Seattle Times:

Sen. John McCain's allies have seized on a new and aggressive line of attack against Sen. Barack Obama by casting the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee as an opportunistic and self-obsessed politician who will do and say anything to get elected.

McCain typically leaves the sharpened criticism to others, in the hope of being able to claim the high ground of conducting a "respectful" campaign. But the abrupt shift in tone among his paid staff members, volunteer surrogates and other Republican staples of the cable-news circuit is unmistakable, and resembles the unified message the GOP used to paint Democratic candidate John Kerry as a flip-flopper in the 2004 campaign.

Man, good thing McCain sticks to his ideals. Oh, SNAP!

Bush Lite just got a little more fattening.

A Step Forward?

Angelicans are considering changing their views of gay men AND Gay runs the fastest 100 meters? A sign? Let's hope so.

7 Different Kinds of Stupid

Now, I know what you're thinking: Republican politicians are more than 7 different kinds of stupid, so what's with the title?

This is actually not a post about politics. This is about the following story, as reported on Yahoo News:

PHOENIX (AP)—Shaquille O’Neal will lose his special deputy’s badge in Maricopa County because of language he used in a rap video that mocks former teammate Kobe Bryant.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said the Phoenix Suns center’s use of a racially derogatory word and other foul language left him no choice. Arpaio made Shaq a special deputy in 2006 and promoted him to colonel of his largely ceremonial posse later that year.

So let's review all of the stupidity in those two paragraphs alone:

1) Shaq rapped. (This should simply not have happened)
2) Shaq's rapping used foul language that apparently was more offensive than, say, anything that other police officers have ever said that still have their job.
3) Shaq got fired because he rapped about a basketball player.
4) Shaq got fired from being a police officer because he rapped about a basketball player.
5) Shaq got fired from a ceremonial job that he did not actually have.
6) Shaq got fired from a ceremonial job as a police officer because he rapped about a basketball player.
7) This is news.

These types of stories make bunnies cry.

Today I saw a rap video on some channel that plugged Barack Obama in the middle of the song. It seems like there is a new face of politics, but it is hard to tell whether or not this is going to make a difference at the end of the year. We have all heard about Obama's use of the Internet, his ability to reach out to young people through websites like, etc., and the idea is that by reaching people with this medium, young people (a group that tends to skip voting) will go out and vote in November.

So what does plugging Barack Obama on some station like BET do? Are they going to be able to get more African Americans to the polls? Or will there be some sort of backlash?

Open Request

Can anyone create a Firefox Add-on that gives you updates on how a specific baseball player hit that day and a season stats update?

That Statistics of Polling

For those of you that are interested in presidential polling but realize that pure polling is generally wrong, there is a website that aims to solve it. is a website created by a baseball statistician, who runs linear regression among many other statistical formulas to provide a far more accurate estimate for true polling data based on the results of many of the famous polling companies. His statistical models are likely to be far more accurate than polls, and completely free of spin and bias.

And if you're wondering, according to recent poll numbers, Barack Obama is currently winning 300.3 electoral votes, and has a 62.1% chance of winning the election. Not nearly as high as I'd like it to be, but it is slowly rising.

"A Terrorist Fist Jab"?

Apologies in advance for the profanity

Fox News anchor E.D. Hill decided that one of the most common gestures in the United States is not a "pound," not a "fist bump," no - it is a "terrorist fist jab."

What the fuck is wrong with you?! Are you that stupid that you think a well known gesture is a "terrorist fist jab?" Are you retarded? You hosted a show called "AMERICA'S PULSE." How could someone that hosts a show that's entire premise is that they are in touch with America be so incredibly fucking stupid that they would consider it a terrorist gesture.

E.D. Hill got fired yesterday. No one deserves it more. And if you are stupid enough to think that a fist pound is any gang sign, secret black pride gesture, or anything other than the simple meaning it has had for over a decade, don't ever vote.

Hey, check it out! More terrorists!

Mass Political Suicide

Sometimes I wonder whether or not any Republican Senators know what they are doing. The GOP blocked taxing Oil Companies for their ridiculous profits they have received despite a price per barrel increase that they claim is unavoidable. In addition to the tax hike, the bill was designed to allow the Government to investigate fraud by the oil industry.

The Republican reasoning?

"It is unlikely to do anything."

How badly do these people not want to get reelected? Because they are trying their hardest to look as terrible as possible.

Hillary Clinton's Speech

No matter what you may think of Hillary Clinton as a candidate, she made a great speech today. It is exceedingly difficult for anyone that has to drop out of the race after all this time to come off as though she completely supports her opponent, and she succeeded in a way that I didn't think possible.

So now it is time to help elect Barack Obama. For Hillary supporters, it's time to start relaxing and rally behind the Democratic candidate. The race may have been heated at times, but Barack Obama is a good candidate, and we need to get him elected. The alternative is far too dangerous.

The title is in reference to this post I did almost a year ago.

Clinton had a huge victory today - One that has caused her to reconsider dropping out before Tuesday. The Victory? Puerto Rico. Wow.

You should just drop out. I'm not saying that with any spite, but a victory in Puerto Rico is not a sign you could come back. At this point you're just wasting money that could be used to help Barack Obama piss off voters in West Virginia.


I got a spam email today that told me I need to "update my penis." What does that even mean?
