“Lookit: People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil, they look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates. We are not exercising that peace through strength that only can be brought to you courtesy of that red, white, and blue that only the strength of the United States military can do.”

News that will drive you to drink

Crazy Nixon era racist Pat Buchanan misses the good ol’ days. (Wait till you get to the 3:30 mark, that’s when he’s ready to sing Die Fahne Hoch.)

  • Get Off The Cross, We Need The Wood, part infinity - The Xristian Xrazies are in full, pitiful persecution mode following the veto of Arizonastan’s Right to Discriminate law, as chock full o’ nuts Star Parker says:

    The reality is that the “gay rights” crusade is not about a struggle for justice, but rather it is a cultural war.

    Homosexual activists understand the ongoing erosion of traditional values as a pillar of our society and use this opportunity to push Christian reality, once and for all, into the closet and to lock the door.

    I would add, “Throw away the key.” After all, who made it a culture war and history is written by the winners. (World Nut Daily)

It’s that time of the month, again!

Phew! It was a couple of days late this month…

Anyway, we like to give a shout out to the great blogs and bloggers of the Mock, Paper, Scissors blogroll. We do this because we really like you guys and everyone likes a link now and then, and let’s face it: some of the smartest, most muscular, and insightful writing on the web is work that we smaller sites are doing.

If I left anyone out, it was an honest mistake, but please help me fix the error: send me the URL to your joint and include a link to MPS at your place. Yes, it is that simple. (I stole the blogroll policy from our late pal Jon Swift.)

Everyone, take a bow:

The Afternoon Quote

“If each one of us does not amass riches only for oneself, but half for the service of others, in this fuck [pause], in this case the providence of God will become visible through this gesture of solidarity.”
