Uniformed Military

The DOD regulations make clear that the White House cannot use uniformed military, active duty or veterans, as props in political events. But that's what Bush did today when he used current or former troops in uniform as window dressing for his political press conference attacking the Democrats as un-American. Is this now the official policy of the US military, that Democrats don't support the troops? What are we, a banana republic now? —

What a Picture

When I saw this picture I just starting laughing. The girl in the back looks pissed.

Purity Balls?

Even creepier than a stork who "relishes" the thought of meeting your buns.

It has all the ingredients of a wedding. The proud tuxedo-clad father, the frosted white cake, the limousines and an exchange of vows.

But there is no groom and the girl in the long gown is no bride. She's daddy's little girl, there to take a vow of chastity.

Unfortunately, the majority of these girls end up becoming daddy's little whores:

But critics say that while teaching abstinence to children may be laudable, it is just as essential to make them aware of sexually transmitted diseases and condom use.

They also point to studies showing that the majority of adolescents who take purity pledges break them within a few years, often by engaging in risky and unprotected sex.

One study conducted by researchers at the universities of Columbia and Yale found that 88 percent of pledgers wind up having sex before marriage.

"Unfortunately these young people tend, once they start to have sex, to have more partners in a shorter period of time and to use contraception much less than their non-pledging peers," said Debra Hauser, executive vice president at Advocates for Youth, a Washington-based non-profit organization.

"Teens may pledge with the best of intention... and then as they break their pledges they are so shamed and embarrassed that it's unlikely they will go for help."

Just more sexism and hypocrisy from the batshit crazy theocrats. What's next chastity belts and female circumcision?
No sex please, we're daddy's little girls


Boxer Inhofe Smackdown

Bigot, homophobe, mental midget and all around asshat, Jim Inhofe really tried to show his ass during Al Gore's Senate testimony on global warming yesterday. Barbara Boxer was having none of it.
From Crooks and Liars:

During today's hearings on global warming, global warming denier James Inhofe was asking Al Gore questions, but didn't want to hear the answers because he thought the responses would take "too much time". Barbara Boxer then explained to Inhofe how things work in Senate now.
Boxer: "You're not making the rules. You used to when you did this (holding up the gavel), you don't do this anymore. Elections have consequences"

The video is priceless

Mark Ronson's Version

Hipster DJ turned producer, Mark Ronson, is the man behind two of this year's hottest albums: Amy Winehouse's Back to Black and Lily Allen's Alright, Still (he also worked with Robbie Williams and Christina Aquilera on their latest efforts). In his spare time he's been working on his own sophomore release Version, due out April 6. The album is an eclectic mix of covers featuring an even more eclectic mix of artists and includes a brilliant version of The Smiths "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before" featuring Daniel Merriweather (whose Ronson produce album is due out next year) and Britney I'm-Country-Y'all Spear's "Toxic" featuring Ol Dirty Bastard and Tiggers. Some interesting stuff for sure. You can hear both these tracks on Ronson's MySpace and other tracks - including Santo Gold singing The Jam's "Pretty Green" and Lily Allen singing Kaiser Cheifs "Oh My God" - are available on his website. Also check out his "Authentic Shit" podcast via East Village Radio.

Is it just me...

or is this kinda creepy?

More Fear and Loathing in the SBC

It's become pretty clear, even to most bat-shit crazy "Christian" fundamentalists, that sexual orientation is genetically determined. Thus in recent years, you've seen the focus of their hate-filled musings shift from "being gay is a choice" to "you can pray the gay away and live a lie". Now one of the Southern Baptist Convention's Grand Poobahs thinks genetically modifying embryos to eliminate homosexuals from the population sounds like a grand idea. Isn't it odd (tongue firmly planted in cheek) how Christian theology is increasingly sounding like the philosophies of Adolf Hitler.

Now, if we could just isolate that gene for ugly, sophomoric, developmentally challenged, bigoted religious zealots we'd be in business.

Rufus' Ode to Tulsa and Brandon Flowers

Arjanwrites reports Rufus Wainwright's upcoming album Release The Stars includes a track entitled "Tulsa" which pay homage to The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers. Here's a sample of the lyrics:

You taste of potato chips in the morning.
Your face has the Marlon Brando club calling.
And then the thought that I owe it all to Tulsa.
And that fat guy with the Queen shirt that we both signed together.
Wanting it for someone who'd been down forever.
Your suit was the whitest thing since you-know-who.
I feel that that saviour I've been ... may be you.
And then the thought that I owe it all to Tulsa.
And that poor girl who waited in the rain for hours to meet me...
And I owe it all to Tulsa... just a reminder
Of the antiques shop I want to go back to and visit when it´s open
In Tulsa
this song's about you.
Refresh my memory. They didn't play together in Tulsa, did they? Same night, different venues? I think I was out of town.
