McCain suggests religious litmus test for President.
“I admire the Islam. There’s a lot of good principles in it,” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said. “But I just have to say in all candor that since this nation was founded primarily on Christian principles, personally, I prefer someone who I know who has a solid grounding in my faith.” He added, “I think the number one issue people should make [in the] selection of the President of the United States is, ‘Will this person carry on in the Judeo Christian principled tradition that has made this nation the greatest experiment in the history of mankind?’” The U.S. Constitution disagrees.
“I wish I cared enough about Kevin James to hate him. He needs to be more like Dane Cook; be overexposed, get caught stealing jokes and release an emo song. As it stands, he is to comedy what dinner at the Olive Garden is to Italian cuisine, or a Nickleback song is to music. ”— FilmDrunk
The mysterious masked ninja answers questions sent in by viewers while occasionally punctuating his responses with martial arts moves in this collection of comedic shorts that first debuted on the Web. The compilation includes the first episodes from creators Kent Nichols and Douglas Sarine and 10 “Special Delivery” sketches, as well as some of the media coverage about this unusual character.

"We agree." That’s all that matters. Agreement! Congress should stop disagreeing! And then they’ll agree! And that’ll be so awesome! Because we elect people to congress so that they hang out and play mini-golf and agree with each other! Disagreement makes me so sad!!!
Because political in-fighting is teh suxx0r! Actual fighting with guns? Awesome! Members of Congress glaring at each other across the cafeteria? HORRIBLE! US troops getting their brains blown out? AWESOME!
“Some of those beating the war drums most loudly now, like think-tank rat Michael Ledeen, were middlemen in the Reagan administration’s unconstitutional weapons sales to Tehran. The sales would have been a form of treason if in fact the United States had been at war with Iran at that time, so Ledeen is apparently accusing himself of treason.”—Iran’s Ahmadinejad, public enemy No. 1? | Salon.com
So, if Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is responsible for killing American troops, as you claimed on Fox News, why the hell didn’t you capture him when he was speaking at Columbia? It’s not like you didn’t know where he was. I hear we even have a whole prison just for these kinds of people.
You could have been a hero. You could have saved lives. Instead, you wrote a letter and started authoring legislation that is so blatantly unconstitutional it might as well be called the “I’ve Never Read the Bill of Rights Act of 2007.” Of course, you being in Congress, this is the kind of behavior we have come to expect from our elected officials.
According to this source, Senator David Vitter, R-La, earmarked $100k in a spending bill for a Lousiana Creationist group that has challenged the teaching of Darwinian Evolution in the public school system.
The bill specifies the payment is “to develop a plan to promote better science education.”
So, I’m wondering - shouldn’t the scientific community have a say in the creation theory that’s going to be introduced into the science curriculum?
The reason I bring this up is because the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster has a creation theory that also challenges Darwinian Evolution, and it is supported by more scientists than the one they’re planning to introduce. I guarantee it.
And we don’t need $100k. We’ll do it for free.

Consumers value what they pay for. They don’t value things the perceive as free. And that’s the marketing blunder the US mobile phone market has bought into over the last 10 to 15 years. By bundling “free” and generic phones with cell phone service, mobile carriers have devalued both the brand values of the handset makers and their own services.
Ludvig:Maybe it is doable, but I sure as hell don't have that time.
Todd:When you get that call and 2AM and your customers are screaming and your management is breathing down your neck and your bugs are costing 1000s of dollars a minute, is that when you'll have the time?
