News Briefs

News you can use all day

Bomb-happy Grandpa Walnuts is upset that The Kenyan is warning Syria that it will be attacked. Oh, he announces that on the teevee machine, which as we know no one in the Middle East has or understands how to use.

  • The Sequester Follies - Florida member of Congress Dennis Ross was told while vising the NIH in Florida that the Sequester Follies (of which he is proud) has set back scientific research for a generation, but the money quote:

    “Less money is less science. It’s as simple as that.”

    Glad they explained it to him slowly using little words. (Think Progress)

  • Unpopular Republican Strategy is Unpopular - “The latest Kaiser Health Tracking Poll showed that 57 percent of Americans disapprove of cutting off funding as a way to stop some or all of [Obamacare] from being put into place.” (Livewire)
  • Why do Hackers Hate Us? - Hacker Guccifer releases what may be more Chimpy McStagger works of art. Also/too: cats! (Gawker)

  2. I’m surprised that W’s “art” isn’t of clowns (John Wayne Gacy loved to paint clowns) and it isn’t as horrible as one might expect. That said, imagine being his poor art teacher. 50 dogs. I guess he thought it wise not to paint Laura passed out on the living room floor, face down in a puddle of her own vomit.
