The Strangest of Holidays
Why oh why are there sculptures of Tim Russert everywhere? I share Paul Waldman’s fantasy: I have a fantasy that at one of these moments, a candidate will say, “You know what, Tim, I’m not going to answer that question. This is serious business. And you, sir, are a disgrace. You have in front of you a group of accomplished, talented leaders, one of whom will in all likelihood...

Valleywag are a bunch of prudes
Check out this blind item where they claim a certain Valley CEO was fired because he stumbled into work drunk and peed on the carpet in front of stunned onlookers. All I can say is the Valley has changed and not for the better. Back in the Seventies and Eighties this kind of stuff happened all the time and nobody thought twice about it. I guess it’s just another result of this “Just...

But I think they don’t quite know which party they’re talking about. See this screed where some Javatard says Apple has been spitting in his face because we didn’t include Java 6 in Leopard. Or something. So he says he’s selling his Mac. His headline is, “So long, Apple. The party’s over.” Well he’s right about one thing. The party is over —...

Nod and Wink
A fascinating thing about Democratic politics is that progressive activists, especially those in marginalized groups, are expected sit down and shut up and take it because they’re supposed to be smart enough to know that nods and winks to bigots are just crass political maneuvers that candidates make to court votes.

TORTURE PORN IS PROFITABLE
From Variety: Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures’ “Saw IV” easily slaughtered the competition at the weekend domestic box office. “Saw IV” grossed an estimated $32.1 million from 3,183 locations, just shy of the $33.6 million domestic opening of “Saw III” but ahead of the $31.7 million opening of “Saw II” Prior to slaughtering the competition, it used elaborate mind games to make the competition...

On GOP Politics
kucharo: you've got Republican friends...do they even know what they stand for?
the idea that she's this enormous liberal boogeyman when in actuality she's closer to a moderate Republican than a hard left Democrat is one of the great mysteries of our time..
me: they aren't too thrilled with the current crop of duds
kucharo: who could be?
kucharo: they want Reagan!
bring him back!
me: until I remind them of the EPA and shit like that
kucharo: Nixon '08
that's a bumper sticker you could sell
me: shit, they probably already make them
kucharo: Reagan/Nixon '08
kucharo: holy cripes
why can't they ever pick a good Republican?
Like Eisenhower or TR
it's always Reagan or Tricky Dick
me: Eisenhower wasn't serious about protecting America though. He hated the military. He hated the troops.
kucharo: shit they could at least pick Goldwater
but oh no!
that whole Supreme Allied Commander thing was just a front for troop hating
me: he railed against the Military Industrial Complex though
kucharo: hell yeah
where did he come off?
me: which is code for "I hate freedom"
kucharo: he wanted the commies to win
me: that's clear enough to me

The new poster for Hitman has Agent 47 (Timothy Olyphant) sporting a shaved head and a gun he borrowed from T.I. That’s right, silencers are this fall’s hottest accessory. I for one am all for them; it makes it easier to kill hookers without waking up grandma. But it also showcases another recent trend, sideboob.
