  1. I decided to go “animated” and did a blog post on two Cartoon Network shows “Chowder” and “Misadventures of Flapjack”

    thanks, good linkage, the obama photos are great, and they bring back a lot of the campaign and the victory. Cartoon mafia’s cute too.

    I wrote against the racist use of “ghetto” as an adjective, got some great comments there on the topic too.

    Yes, Favreau is a sexist asshat, but Hilary Clinton is right to downplay it in public.

    You’ve got to be kidding me. What Favreau, Obama’s fracking speechwriter, did is sick. I thought Clinton played it down at first, too. I don’t think she did anymore though, I think that’s a misreading. Read what she said carefully (as opposed to what others said about what she said.)

    And I think anybody who claims to be a feminist — or hell, a Democrat, a leftist, a progressive, a liberal, a decent human being, for that matter — ought to be blogging about this front and center. Hello. Obama’s speechwriter thinks the image of date raping/sexually assaulting Hillary Clinton is funny. Funny enough to throw it up there on his Facebook page.

    School ties up black schoolchildren as pretend slaves, but then can’t comprehend why what they did was wrong. Aaaargh. White people.

    Ah, but was it REALLY wrong? In a super clever slight of hand, perhaps the teacher taught the lesson a lot better than would otherwise have been taught.

    I mean, tie of a white student, oooh, aaaah, how instructional. BORE-RING. But be a racist asshat and assume tying up black students is “Okay” and suddenly the absolute evil that was slavery is made obvious.

    I give the teacher an “A” for results, and an “F” for execution.

    Jessica *Alba*. Though I clicked through because I wanted to see who was airbrushing pictures of the (gorgeous, imho) Jessica Abel.

    I blogged about this a month ago but since it’s hit the mainstream press, it’s just happened. It’s causing a bit of a stir.

    LAPD officer files $5 million alleging racial profiling

    Police Chief responds to claim for damages

    Reactions to the situation

    This column on the whole state of affairs is excellent.

    Thanks for the open thread! I love them.

    At The Czech, I wrote about:

    Rober Ebert’s hilarious review of pro-creationism documentary Expelled, narrated by Ben Stein!

    Musician and television personality Pat Boone equating the Mumbai terrorist attacks with anti-Prop 8 protests.

    Recent surprise expressed in the media that meat comes from a dead animal. Who knew? Now, i am an omnivore myself, I just like to respect the reality that brings meat to the table.

    Start vent:
    I am trying to trade something on Craigslist.

    I have posted clear statements in my ad, about what it is worth and what I expect in trade.

    Every single email ignores them and it takes at least three emails to figure out that they are expecting (?) me to trade my nice stuff for their shit. “i see you’re trying to trade a high end road bike for an equivalently priced high end mountain bike; would you accept my broken tricycle?” Except that they take three emails before they admit they only have a broken tricycle.

    what the fuck is the MATTER with people?

    thank you. i feel much better now.
    End vent:

    As long as we’re venting…

    WHY is it that no clothes manufacturer on the ENTIRE FUCKING PLANET makes clothes for guys with big waists and little butts? I can buy a pair of pants that fits in the butt but compresses my innards, or I can buy a pair that fits at the waist but with a crotch that makes me look like a gangbanger.

    You’d think somebody would be aware that there’s a moneymaking opportunity here.

    Besides Utilikilt, I mean.

    Yeah, Bjartmarr, I feel your pain. Trying to find women’s clothes when you have a very large waist but not-so-large hips is a similar headache.
