seeking knowledge and laughter, putting a bullseye on inaccuracy

Funny

Now that is just funny

Diplomacy

Seriously, why is Obama not just running some of these spots from the Daily Show as commercials? He should license this response to Bush's speech in Israel.

It is hard to imagine having a worse President than Bush.

HRC Pulls for Memphis

This is hilarious - I guess Hillary has given up on Kansas and is trying to court Elvis fans instead by arguing Memphis should be declared the victor.

In a move that's sure to be seen as controversial, Hillary has contacted the NCAA Board of Directors to argue that Memphis is actually better qualified to be National Champion.

Ms. Clinton stated that Memphis, while losing the game, had actually shown more ability to act like a National Champion on Day One. She argued that Memphis had passed every test during the game, including scoring more points than Kansas for 38 minutes. For 38 minutes they had shown the experience necessary to be National Champion. "Just because some team comes along in the last minute and scores more points than the other guy doesn't mean they're necessarily able to be National Champion on Day One."

Read the rest.

Great Bush Achievement

Tim Wu offers some suggestions for how the next President can improve tech policy. Though he trashes Bush, he does point out a great accomplishment of the Administration for which we should all be grateful.

One of the great and enduring accomplishments of the Bush administration was that it undermined once and for all the argument that the best decisions are made in secret. Some of Bush's more grotesque mistakes—like the decision to spy on American citizens without warrants—might have been averted by even a tiny amount of transparency.

Bush leaves behind a transparency tradition somewhere between Brezhnev and Dracula. A new administration can and should change that—but giving people information about what the government is doing is actually an information-technology problem.

Sim Society Critique

These reviews are hilarious. This one makes some salient observations about religion and whether God loves us. Also, it makes fun of Hillary in the credits. Don't watch after the credits, it gets boring.

Hillary's F*cking Obama

Bush Jealous of Troops

Wide Stance Defense

A couple of years ago, one of the most exciting players to watch in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament was Kevin Pittsnogle of West Virginia. His exciting play and fun style led to the creation of new terms - including being pittsnogled.

I love new terms to describe stuff. Big fan.

So I want to propose a new one. As I watch Hillary "I-think-you-are-that-dumb" Clinton's response to being called out on her slight embellishment, I thought back to Senator Larry Craig.

When busted soliciting for sex in a public restroom, the Senator tried a number of absurd defenses, culminating in his claims to having a "wide stance." I propose to use this term as the "wide stance defense" and it will be used thusly:

A person is using the wide stance defense when they are caught plainly doing something and they come up with some absurd defense which no sensible person could possibly believe. The wide stance defense is frequently ridiculed by evening shows while being taken seriously on the news (though the reporters undoubtedly break into hyena-like laughter as soon as the camera turns off.

To recap:

In a foreign policy speech last week at George Washington University, Clinton used the description of the dangerous arrival to bolster her argument that she has the foreign policy experience needed to be commander in chief.

She said when she arrived in Bosnia on March 25, 1996, "I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."

Now that video, photos, and personal experiences have proven that claim to be wholly fabricated, she has claimed that she misspoke.

Hey Hillary, that is a pretty wide stance. Try again.

South Park Online

All episodes of South Park are now available online. I have long believed the best TV show to ever deal with the experience of Americans at war (a rather low bar, I'll admit) is episode 701. It also deals exceptionally well with the Founding Fathers - smartly dismissing the idea that they were somehow a single mind.

Now you can watch it!
