The Kiss Of Near-Death

The Underpants Bomber, it seems, was directed to scorch his genitals by two al Qaeda leaders who used to reside at Guantanamo prison. ABC reports: American officials agreed to send the two terrorists from Guantanamo to Saudi Arabia where they entered into an “art therapy rehabilitation program” and were set free, according to U.S. and Saudi officials. So – it must be President Obama’s fault. Typical liberal – give ’em art, that’ll solve everything… …what? The Bush administration released these guys in 2007? To the Saudis? Oh, the Saudis, with whom W likes to suck face? Saudis, who made up fifteen of the…

Look What I Did, Mommy, All By Myself!

Look, and look well, my dears, into the psyche of the “prolife” movement. This touching artwork by a fellow inmate is signed/endorsed by the dispatcher of an abortion provider, the late Dr Tiller of Kansas. I don’t know whether it’s the saucy palette of warm, engaging colors or the delicately rendered human form in repose; perhaps it’s the imperceptibly sublime nature of disambiguation, but there is something deep and succinct here that speaks to the ages. Shorter version: Respect Life or I’ll Kill You!

Who You Callin’ Boy?

He clearly wants to bring hate into full fashion. He cannot resist it, shadowboxing around his proud and practiced racism, skillfully using words that just border on the blatancy of his biases. Skillfully until today, that is.  Using his favorite put-down of the president, Rush went for “man-child” but got to “little boy” first. Paging Dr. Freud! Was a time, in my life and in my fair land, when using “boy” to describe a grown black man was being as backward as you could be, to put it charitably. Old Skool Christians would say, “bless his heart, that’s just the way he was raised, his daddy didn’t know any better.” Flash…

From Dick’s Point of View…

Noted sociopath and The Hague-avoider Richard Bruce Cheney is having his regular hissy since losing the reins of government for Republicans, probably for a generation. President Obama is”dithering,” BeelzebubCheney blithered. Needs to do what needs to be done to win in Afghanistan. One wonders what prevented the delusional Mr Cheney and his flying monkeys from winning the war, whatever he means by that, before he handed this president the writhing, chaotic mess Cheney fashioned out of his own cowardice and incompetence.

Her Job is Done Here

The other parents at the games once attended by this now-deceased pistol-packin’ soccer mama will no longer feel alarmed at the sight of her openly carrying her Glock. She and her husband have been found dead in a murder-suicide, one or the other having put the Glock to use. While I have compassion for her now-orphaned children, at least we will not have to open a paper or watch the evening news Web link in the near future to a story describing how a clearly insane parent gunned down these kids. By way of the parents’ actions, then, her gun has done the ultimate job…

KKKlassy with a “K!”

This guy: Sparkman’s bio and work history suggests at the least he was not just your average guy. No teaching degree, no full-time means of employment and no wife or kids so far as I am aware. But he certainly did gravitate towards children. I can’t help but wonder if this wasn’t a revenge killing disguised to look like something else. If he did have issues in this regard and messed with the wrong kid, it isn’t as if something like that can be ruled out until we know more. So – Mr True Crime just senses that Mr Sparkman was a child…
