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.

Barney Frank Demonstrates Flair

Posted in Uncategorized on March 23, 2010 by jericomele

One of the reasons we have the economic shitstorm that’s currently spraying our fine nation in a brown patina is because of Congresspeople saying shit like this:

“Don’t let those little punk staffers take advantage of you and stand up for yourselves,” Boehner said. “All of us are hearing from our friends and constituents on lack of credit, you can’t get a loan, the more your government takes and taxes, the more regulations you have to comply with the more cost you have there and less amount you are going to have available to loan to customers.”

Truly, the bankers are getting taken advantage of.

Fuck Me It Is Real, or Now I’ll Never Get Off My Medication

You know how the predator did that nifty cloak thing? Well, it looks like we’re actually going to be able to do this in real life, thanks to materials science. Metamaterials (something I haven’t got a really good handle on but is popping up all over the place) are poised to create devices that can bend light around an object, rendering it invisible. I really never thought this one was going to come true- most of the cloaking ideas I’ve thought of were projector based rather than no shit light bending.

Atop the Pyramid sits a Liar

Not terribly surprising, but it’s nice to have confirmation. The novel bit is that physiological signs of lying are less pronounced in those individuals in a position of power. While I haven’t parsed it out of this study, it would also be interesting to see if there’s a correlation between lying ability and propensity to get into a position of power.

Time Management Issues

Truly multitasking can be dangerous. Learn from this kid’s mistake: don’t fence your stolen goods using the computer in the store you’re stealing from, don’t check out porn while you’re robbing a place and don’t use MySpace- that shit is over.
