Day the Second

Good morning, confessor mine. Lovely weather you’re having out there in the fort, it’s a shame you and your faithful can’t spend more time enjoying it. Though I suppose I’m one keeping you from a day in the sun at the moment. Where was I? Ah, yes, the humble burg of Aster.

A few evenings after I was deposited from my escape of the Dawnward’s wreck, I was comfortably residing in a small apartment above a distillery. It was a home that left a little to be desired in location, but made up for in privacy. I’d sold all of the Captain’s little vials except for one at what I now know was a considerable loss. That was a lesson that still rankles to this day, Inquisitor. You know those mistakes, the ones that are so obviously a product of ignorance that they leave you a bit ashamed looking back.

No? I see then. Continue reading

I haven’t really been keeping up with this whole thing, mostly because I don’t really give a shit, but HuffPo had a bunch of nudie pics that lead to this article and I was sucked in. Choice quotes

Early in the message thread, the sender tells James, “I want to be deep inside you.” Later, he explains that he wants to “hold you down while I choke you.” He says he will “slap your face and pull your hair for making noise.” He also informs James that “you are my f–king wh–e.”

Man, you have to love the public/private dichotomy for Tiger. Here’s a predicition, by way of someone who knows much more about golf than me: He’ll kill the masters and everyone will stop talking about this.

And you wonder why I grow less political every day.

The survey showed that 24 per cent of Republican respondents agreed with the statement that the president might be the Antichrist, and 38 per cent thought he was “doing many of the things Hitler did.”

No amount of push poling can account for those numbers.

Repeat after me: The Market allocates resources best. The Market knows all.

It was just a single contract for a single job on a single base in Iraq. The Department of Defense agreed to pay the megacontractor KBR $5 million a year to repair tactical vehicles, from Humvees to big rigs, at Joint Base Balad, a large airfield and supply center north of Baghdad. Yet according to a new Pentagon report [PDF], what the military got was as many as 144 civilian mechanics, each doing as little as 43 minutes of work a month, with virtually no oversight.

Pushing the limits of an irony singularity.

Ann “Traitors!” Coulter feel she is the victim of a hate crime. My responses were mostly fairly juvenile insults. Ann Coulter is an uglier Joan Rivers with a soul so black it makes the KKK put their uniforms on. She is, honestly, one of the most absurd caricatures of the Right Wing Pundit that even Glenn Beck feels slightly  uncomfortable around her. That she can, with a straight face, accuse other people of committing a hate crime against her is astounding.  Here are some choice quotes by Ms. Coulter:

I wouldn’t kill an abortionist myself, but I wouldn’t want to impose my moral values on others. No one is for shooting abortionists. But how will criminalizing men making difficult, often tragic, decisions be an effective means of achieving the goal of reducing the shootings of abortionists?

Especially ironic quote considering her book tour in Canada:

[Canadians] better hope the United States does not roll over one night and crush them. They are lucky we allow them to exist on the same continent.

And just to really top it all off:

These people can’t even wrap up genocide. We’ve been hearing about this slaughter in Darfur forever — and they still haven’t finished. The aggressors are moving like termites across that country. It’s like genocide by committee. Who’s running this holocaust in Darfur, FEMA? This is truly a war in which we have absolutely no interest.

Right-wing U.S. firebrand Ann Coulter will file grievance with rights panel.

It’s not everyday that a new kind of pathetic emerges.
