Spiegel is more insane than Ahmadinajad

In their interview with the Iranian nut-job, they throw this little zinger into one of their questions (on the second page of the article):

SPIEGEL: Mr. President, doesn't there come a time when one should accept that the world is the way it is and that we must accept the status quo? The war against Iraq has put Iran in a favorable position. The United States has suffered a de facto defeat in Iraq. Isn't it now time for Iran to become a constructive power of peace in the Middle East? Which would mean giving up its nuclear plans and inflammatory talk?

The United States has suffered a de facto defeat?

What exactly IS a "de facto" defeat? How in the h*ll are you defeated "de facto?"

What defeat? We're knocking the snot out of those terrorists out there. This is insanity. The Spiegel is apoplectic that the Iranian nut-job doesn't believe in the Holocaust, and yet they themselves think we're losing in Iraq. There's a word for that. It's called "irony."

It's PANDEMONIUM! Christians are rioting in the streets!

Now that their God has been blasphemed in this abomination of a movie (The Da Vinci Code), Christians all across the world have taken to the streets in angry mobs. Rioting has occurred ...

... well, nowhere. And no one has been killed. And there's no outcry of "Jesus Akbar!"

Oh, sure there's a lot of hurt feelings and impassioned denunciations. There may even be some who are condemning those responsible to eternal damnation. But, they are not God, and so their threats can be safely shrugged off.

I suppose Ron Howard and Dan Brown know who to pick on.

Hey guys, why don't you just step on a puppy next time?

UPDATE: One more thing to all you angry Christians: it's a NOVEL!

Rally of Support for Tom Cruise - Nut-job!

So a bunch of Hollywood bigwigs are showing public support for Tom Cruise.

Um, so what.

This is what kills me about Hollywood. They think their opinions should matter to the rest of us. I could give a rat's rear about what Susan Sarandon thinks (assuming that she does). And I'm not going to change my opinion about the nut-job Cruise just because a bunch of people who are beholden to him for their livelihood say I should.

I SAW the video clips of him acting all Cuckoo's Nest on Oprah. And now I'm supposed to say, "Oh, he's a great guy" because the guy who makes millions off of his movies tells me how talented he is.

Hey Hollywood! Here's how it works. You make the movies and WE tell YOU if they're good or not. How about that?

**FLASH*** - IMAO FINALLY notices his most avid reader!

Now, I just have to get Michelle Malkin to notice me! Then I'll be on my way!

(She grew up in S. Jersey like I did! Why won't she acknowledge the only other conservative to survive that God-fors... I mean, that .... um ... place?)

Missing Link?

The way the article reads, you'd think that scientists had every stage of evolution nailed exception THIS ONE creature. And NOW they've FOUND IT!

I go back to an early post, about rapid tectonic activity, and the ensuing discussion. I have yet to hear a plausible explanation of how Thermodynamics Law of Entropy was overcome to create the first living thing. A commenter took the position that entropy only affects inanimate objects, not plant or animals. Fine, but how did the first one get going? Riddle me this!

I have more respect for the Raelians than these guys.

McDermott's hypocrisy

Rep. Jim McDermott has lost an appeal in a lawsuit filed against him by Rep. John Boehner. You may remember back during the '96 campaign cycle that an old couple "just happened" to overhear a cell phone conversation between then-Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, and Boehner. McDermott got hold of the tape and released it to the press.

Now, correct me if I'm wrong here, but isn't that illegally tapping the phone conversations of U.S. Citizens without a warrant?

Which is why I was interested to find that McDermott is on the record as against that sort of thing.

And, he's spoken publicly about them too:
McDermott feels that Bush is exercising his power in a way that is lessening the questioning of his power by the people, which can be seen in his recent exercise of bypassing the judiciary step of acquiring access for the NSA to tap phones in order to spy on terrorists.

“Bush is saying ‘I don’t have to obey the law,’” said McDermott. “Excuse me? That’s why we jumped all over Clinton for lying about Monica Lewinsky. We are moving back to a government who says we can do whatever we want.”

To be fair, he has offered up an explanation as to why he should be allowed to listen in on the private conversations of two U.S. Citizens:
"The American people have a right to know when their government's leaders are plotting to deceive them, and that is exactly what was happening during a telephone call in 1996 involving Republican House leaders."

So, just so we're understanding this correctly, if you want to listen in on our own citizen's because you don't like what they're saying, that would be a GOOD thing. But if you want to listen in on terrorists who are calling people in this country, that would be a BAD thing.

I can understand people who disagree with the NSA program. I think they're wrong, but I understand where they're coming from. But, to disagree with the NSA program, and then do something like this, AND defend it!?!?! That's just amazing.

Penn's torture doll: Libs are all about love and compassion

Cigarette burns in funny places?

I think he's a sick misogynist.

If I said I had a Hillary doll, and did those kinds of things, can you imagine what they'd say about me? Oh, yeah, well, pretty much what they'd say about me anyway.
