Horrifying News

Physician Dr. George Tiller was murdered this morning while attending church services in his home town of Wichita, KS. Tiller embodied the truest expression of the ethics of the medical profession, putting the welfare of his patients–almost all of whom were women who required abortions to save their own lives–above even his own personal safety.

Another homegrown depraved sick-fuck right-wing terrorist commits murder. How many is that so far this year?

Why is it “identity politics” when a Latina woman is nominated for the Supreme Court, but it’s not “identity politics” that the vast majority of all Supreme Court justices have been white d00dz?

UPDATE: And by the way, there is no “debate” concerning Sotomayor’s “qualifications” for service on the Supreme Court. There is just a bunch of sick-fuck asshole America-hating right-wing liars jumping up and down trying to rally their racist misogynist electoral base.

And let’s get this absolutely straight. The rhetoric these right-wing motherfuckers use to pump up their base is built on stoking hatred for America, as it currently exists.

They *hate* that someone of mixed race background named “Barack Obama” could become elected President. They *hate* that a Latina woman is one of the most motherfucking brilliant and accomplished jurists in the nation and is going to serve on the Supreme Court. They *hate* that in their jobs and professions, they have to compete on a playing field that–while still far from level–is not exclusively limited to white men.

These sick-fuck right-winger demagogues may or may not believe all the bullshit they spout to their racist misogynist electoral base. But regardless, there is no doubt that base objectively hates America, and longs for nothing more than a repeal of the Enlightenment.

BikeFucker has tagged me with the best cover ever meme! I love this shit!!!! I think the best cover ever is Joe Cocker doing Traffic’s “Feeling Alright”:



One of the things I have always loved about being a scientist is troubleshooting experimental protocols. Anyone with coolio motherfucking troubleshooting stories, please share in the comments. This applies to science troubleshooting as well as other kinds of troubleshooting in non-scientific arenas.

Michael Vick

I am sickened by all this talk about whether and how Vick is going to return to the NFL after having “paid his debt to society” or whatthefuckever. The dude intentionally tortured dogs for his own and his friends’ amusement. This man is a sociopath, and should be shunned. If I were a coach or player asked to take the field with this motherfucker, the minimum standards of human decency would require my refusal.
