Akin For A Breakin'

real time with bill maherThe following is the first couple of paragraphs from the "New Rules" portion of Real time With Bill Maher. Time-Warner is being a dick about the youtube video so I thought I'd share the transcript. =Lefty=

New Rule: If your entire party tries to get rid of you, and you stay in, you can't talk about how easy it is for a woman to push a stupid prick out of her body.

I don't want to waste another second thinking about Todd Akin, and his theory that you can't get pregnant unless your eggs are asking for it. Here's the only thing you need to know about Todd Akin and human anatomy: he's an asshole. What I want to talk about is how it's not a coincidence that the party of fundamentalism is also the party of fantasy. When I say religion is a mental illness, this is what I mean: it corrodes your mental faculties to the point where you can believe in tiny ninja warriors who hide in vaginas and lie in wait for bad people's sperm.

Evangelicals might like to pretend that the magical thinking that they indulge in at home doesn't affect what they do at the office, but it absolutely does. The brain that believes in angels and miracles and Jesus riding a dinosaur is trained to see the world not as it is, but as you want it to be.

Republicans would like to pretend like Congressman Akin's substitution of superstition for science is a lone problem but it's not: they're all magical thinkers, on nearly every issue. They don't get their answers on climate change from climatologists, they get them from the Book of Genesis. Hence Sharia Law in America is a dire threat, and global warming a hoax.

Oh, That Mitt.

did gonna be goodMittens has been in hiding for the past couple of days. The claim is that he's getting ready for the upcoming debates.

This reminds me of those awkward grade school situations where one girl goes around talking smack about another girl, only to turn around one day to find her standing right next to her, hearing everything and daring her to run her lying mouth again. Mr. Obama is going to be that girl, and Mr. Romney has some 'splainin' to do. In front of Kolob and everybody.

This ought to be good.


Speaking of skanky bitches, New York Magazine asks "When Did Paul Ryan Become Such A Liar?"

From the article: "Ryan burst onto the national scene with a dense, fact-laden attack on the financing of Obama’s health-care bill that was essentially a series of hallucinations, pseudo-facts cooked up and recirculated by conservative apparatchiks who didn’t know what they were talking about or didn’t care."


In his defense Paul Ryan admits that he's a liar, but it's only because he's a weasel.
