quote for the day

"Some people think that you can’t let same-sex couples get married without changing the definition of the word “marriage.” When we let openly gay people join the army, did we have to change the definition of the word “Army”? Did Rosa Parks make us change the definition of the word “bus”?

It’s one thing to blame the Bible for your bigotry, but don’t blame the dictionary."


California attorney and semi-professional cynic Bill Smith on today’s Ninth Circuit decision regarding Proposition 8. Read the full decision.

for the race


Okay, so this is old. Real old. Trump is long gone from the GOP primary. Still, Lewis Black is always funny, and there could still be a brokered candidate at the convention, since it's pretty clear that Republicans dont actually want Romney to win, even if it means choosing a never-gonna-win idiot like Rick Santorum.

"During 3 years (2008-2011) i have been drawing 12 drawing of animation every day, it make one second of film. I had no plans what so ever before starting the first drawing. And then, each of the folowing days, I took the 3 last drawing from the day before and kept on animating. I use a none erasable pen, and drew on the back side of used A4 paper."

knee-jerk conservative dumbass quote of the day

"Late night deep thought: At the end of Humpty Dumpty, perhaps there would have been a better outcome if whoever was in charge didn’t think that the king’s horses should have been given the first opportunity to put him back together again."

A conservative friend on Facebook

To which I can only stand agape and ask, "Really? Really?"
