I was having a political discussion with a friend of mine who is a very, very good person, and cares deeply about his family, friends, and this nation. We were talking about the race-, sex-, and class-based schisms that currently divide the nation.
I contended that the only way to get past this stuff is for everyone to realize that the elite right-wing corporate oligarchy has intentionally fueled race-based and sex-based discord and division so as to splinter the vast majority of people in this nation so that they do not unify as a class-based supermajority and kick the elite right-wing corporate oligarchy right to the fucking curb where they belong, and give this nation back to its citizens.

When Amanda Marcotte posted semi-approvingly of John McCain’s daughter Meghan McCain a few days ago, I figured it was just some kind of random aberration:
I wish there was a way to do an intervention on Meghan McCain. If you’re guessing, yes, she’s the daughter of John and Cindy McCain and, as a grown woman, she’s out there stumping for her dad. And, well, I kind of like her. If her blog wasn’t ostensibly to get her war-mongering, corporatist, anti-choice father into office, I’d probably be a fan.
But now, M. Leblanc at BitchPhD is doing the same thing:
Okay, she’s kickass, except for this whole part:
“I’m an Independent. Socially liberal, economically conservative. I believe in a lot of Republican ideals, with the war being the number one thing I completely agree with my dad on.”
Come on, Meghan, if you’re going to disagree with your dad about one goddamn thing, the war would be an excellent choice. Read the rest of this entry »

At this bus stop in the blogosphere, I’m Queen Cunt of Fuck Mountain, and I’m mean for a reason.
This made me swoon!! And yes, I know this post by Melissa McEwan is several years old, but I hadn’t seen it until recently (h/t Coturnix). It also addresses an important and timely point, given all the recent discussion on “tone”, and “framing”, and shit like that. For fuck’s sake, even sports radio douchemonkeys like Mike and Mike are all in an uproar because Tiger Woods told some asshole with a fucking camera that if he clicks the shutter again during the backswing, Tiger is going to “wring his fucking neck”. Go Tiger!! Read the rest of this entry »

Female Science Professor has another very interesting post up today, this one concerning a discussion among Scientists at a dinner party:
One of the Scientists asked the others the following question:
If you could make a pact with the Devil and become supersonically, cosmically famous — of the order of magnitude of Isaac Newton or Charles Darwin — within your lifetime, but on the condition that you die within 6 years, would you do it? Read the rest of this entry »

I don’t really have the patience for exegesis of this kind of cockamamie narishkeit, but certain “framers”–non-scientists who seem to spend a lot of fucking time telling scientists how to act to “further the scientific agenda”–have apparently been popping big fucking woodies over the response of non-insane bloggers to the “Expelled” kerfuffle, wherein ridiculous demented right-wing wackaloon theocratic douchemonkeys expelled big huge swinging throbbing massive atheist cockmaster blogger PZ Myers from the loonie theocratic anti-reality wacked-out Jesus-freak movie Expelled.

DDay posted something really, really interesting over at Digby’s blog a few days ago that made me stop and say, “Holy fuck!!” PhysioProf has definitely been hard on Obama about some of his “not liberal” and “bipartisanship” rhetoric. Those of us with a non-insane wackadoodle perception of reality are, needless to say, just a little fucking leery of the idea that the right-wing scumsucking shitmonger douchecornets that have spent the last 30+ years completely destroying every single fucking decent thing in the universe and replacing it with their obscene theocratic oligarchic partisan hackfuck perversion of humanity would have any place at the table where non-sick-fuck adults are going to have to sit down and figure out how to keep the ship of state from plummeting over the falls and completely destroying this nation and its citizens.

PhysioProf is not real up on the controversy surrounding the movie Expelled, but apparently it is some absurd piece of right-wing Jeebus-freak dreck about how the theory of evolution SUXX0RS!!!11! and how horrible “evolutionists” are suppressing the BEST SCHOLARS EVAH!!!!11!11 from the “Intelligent Design” community (which as far as I can tell is just a Potemkin village from which right-wing theocratic beserkers can peddle their ridiculous Jeebus tales to credulous drooling moron right-wing authoritarian followers).
