I Drives The Wimmens Wild!

Back on October 5th I created a photo-cartoon that featured Judge Sonia Sotomayor saying very unflattering things about Judge Clarence Thomas, referring at one point to the infamous pubic hair incident.

Why, here's the very cartoon now!

I follow the news and, honestly, I haven't heard word one in years about Anita Hill's testimony in which she claimed that Clarence Thomas placed a pubic hair on the lip of her can of Coke.

So you can imagine how flabbergasted I was two days ago when I learned that Judge Thomas's wife, Ginni, phoned Anita Hill and requested that she apologize for her testimony about the pubic hair.

After all these years.


I think not.

However, while I'd like to think my little jape has driven Mrs. Thomas over the edge it wasn't much of a push as she's been stumping earnestly for the Tea Party as of late.

And, lest you think I chose to pick on Mr. Thomas in the comic above solely based on his high melanin count, think again. It's pretty clear to anyone paying attention that his years on the bench could just as easily been  served by your standard-issue cocker spaniel.

My apologies to cocker spaniels.

Rally To Restore Sanity Comes Home!

Rally your ass off!

wanted, fervently, to attend the Rally to Restore Sanity rally this coming 30th of October, but three days, minimum, away from the office wasn't in the cards for me.

So I was elated to hear that the rally has metastacized, in a good way, and is now in almost every state in the union. In addition, several foreign sites are hosting their own rally, too.

The nearest rally to me is in Austin, Texas and currently there are about 3500 RSVPs. (Rumors that a Dallas rally is in the offing, too) But the word is spreading and the numbers are growing. Share this info with a friend or two, won't you?

To find the rally location nearest you go to

This is good news to a lot of people but, seriously, if you can make the Washington, D.C. event then please, by all means, go. Tell 'em Lefty sent ya.

Today's Google Chow.

Think Progress just leaked a memo that revealed that over two-hundred industry leaders met in June of 2010 to discuss the buying of the 2010 and 2012 elections. The list included heads of energy, insurance, oil, real estate and investment companies. It also included two Supreme Court Justices and, oddly enough, Glenn Beck.

It's funny, but you know the first thing I thought of?
