And how’s your Sunday, Scissorheads?

Boss: We’re glad you applied for a job with ACME moving company. Can you lift boxes weighing 40 lbs?
Applicant: Yes I can. But I won’t lift them.
Boss: You do know that lifting boxes is a big part of this job?
Boss: Your resume says you’re part of an organization that promotes “Anti Box Lifting”.
Boss: Well I don’t think you’re cut out for this position. Thanks anyway.
Applicant: I’m suing you.
And so it goes. It sounds like a set-up from the get go: Sara Hellwege, soon to be graduating nurse in Georgia with a membership in an anti-abortion organization, applies for a job at a Title X clinic in Florida, gets rejected as a candidate for a position because she refuses to perform a large portion of the proposed job, files federal law suit alleging religious discrimination. Again we see birth control being equated with abortifacients in the lawsuit.
I’m borrowing from John Richards at KEXP and going with his Friday song. I don’t understand the video either, but the song is happy.
[Sen. Warren, if she ran for president] would energize the Democratic Party’s liberal base, which would then stir up other Democrats who seek to moderate or contain that group.
Good lord, Dickerson’s looking to the left for an equivalent to the Teabaggers, there just isn’t one. There is no Both Sides here, fool.
(CNN) – Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, made a surprising suggestion Thursday night: If he had been elected in 2000, there might not have been a war in Iraq.
And what if Spiderman had won the election in 2000?
Hell’s bells, if Grandpa Walnuts had been elected, the Fourth of July would have real bombs.
The flying monkeys of Wingnuttia have been trying to find a way to blame The Kenyan Usurper for the shot-down airliner that killed about 300 civilians. Lacking a smoking gun, they latched onto a phrase that Obama used while waiting for real details about what happened instead of just bombing someone (the McCain solution). “It looks like it may be a terrible tragedy.” He said it while attending a fundraising event. Bring on the tumbrels!
For obvious reasons, I’m not linking to any of them.
It’s also worth remembering that this year Wingnuttia was singing Putin’s praises for stomping on the ‘mos and being decisive working with the Ukranian rebels (who wanted to become part of Russia again). This is who they got into bed with.
One of Rick Perry’s political appointments had a camera installed in the bathroom:
BRYAN, Texas (AP) — A Central Texas dentist has been sentenced to 21 days in prison for taping a female employee changing in the office bathroom.
MILAN — An Italian appeals court on Friday acquitted former Premier Silvio Berlusconi in a sex-for-hire case, reversing a lower court conviction that had carried a seven-year prison sentence and a lifetime ban on holding political office.
