Mary Carey, California’s political porn star, talks with MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann about her experience attending a Republican fundraiser with President Bush. She was assigned a security officer whose job it was specifically to keep her away from any of the Senators or Members of Congress, or at least to make sure they knew who she was. She’s got quite a sense of humor about the whole thing, as does Keith Olbermann.

Just in time for the beginning of Pride Week, that lovely time of year when queerness is in the air, the phobes are crawling out of the woodwork as if deliberately trying to remind us all why the parades and banners are still necessary.
In a burst of dewey-eyed nostalgia for those halcyon days of 1939 Germany, Rev. Bill Banuchi, executive director of the Christian Coalition spoke from on high unto his flock, declaring that gays should be made to wear warning labels:
We put warning labels on cigarette packs because we know that smoking takes one to two years off the average life span, yet we ‘celebrate’ a lifestyle that we know spreads every kind of sexually transmitted disease and takes at least 20 years off the average life span according to the 2005 issue of the revered scientific journal Psychological Reports.
The journal Psychological Reports is “revered” by the same people who believe that the dinosaurs became extinct because they didn’t make it to Noah’s Ark in time and that the sperms won’t find the egg if you pray to Jesus really hard.
Fortunately, Mike Silverman, a courteous homo has taken steps to protect straight society from toxic homos like himself by creating
warning labels. Get yours TODAY! [Read more…]
Do you ever suffer from the creeping suspicion that maybe your government doesn’t set its priorities straight? Do you ever have the treasonous thought that maybe, just maybe, all the dead Iraqis and dead Americans and restrictive laws haven’t done diddly-squat to make us safer?
If not, maybe it’s time you did. [Read more…]
After all of the controversy about Newsweek’s alleged journalistic irresponsibility in printing reports about the
mistreatment of Korans at Gitmo, after weeks of hand-wringing about how those America-hatin’ journalists have blood on their hands from the riots, one thing seems to have gotten lost in the hubbub: the substance of the charges was true, and the Pentagon is now having to face up to
The Pentagon confirmed Friday evening — after the networks’ evening news shows had aired — that a U.S. soldier had deliberately kicked a prisoner’s holy book. The report also said prison guards had thrown water balloons in a cell block, causing an unspecified number of Korans
to get wet; a guard’s urine had splashed on a detainee and his Koran; an interrogator had stepped on a Koran during an interrogation; and a two-word obscenity had been written in English on the inside cover of a Koran.
After a long, tedious day at work, I got a little geekier than was absolutely necessary, and, well– let’s say the results weren’t good. Corporate life is making me cynical.
I Am A: Neutral Evil Human Ranger Druid
Neutral Evil characters believe in Number One. Their personal gain takes precedance over all else, and they will work with whomever necessary and whatever institutions necessary to further their own goals.
Humans are the ‘average’ race. They have the shortest life spans, and because of this, they tend to avoid the racial prejudices that other races are known for. They are also very curious and tend to live ‘for the moment’.
Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.
Druids are a special variety of Cleric who serves the Earth, and can call upon the power in the earth to accomplish their goals. They tend to be somewhat fanatical about defending natural settings.
Cyric is the Neutral Evil god of death, murder, the dead, strife, tyranny, deception, and illusion. His followers are working to secure his position as a new god, and are in conflict with many worshippers of other deities. They wear black or dark purple robes, with silver trimming, and wear silver bracelets. Cyric’s symbol is a skull set in a purple starburst.
I wonder how my girlfriend is going to feel about sleeping with a Neutral Evil anything? More importantly, is this the D&D equivalent of a Rush Limbaugh fan?
