Slow day...
I would be posting more today, except when I tried to walk across the street to feed myself I got smacked in the face with the biggest snowflake in history. Then the pizza place was closed. In the meantime, entertain yourself with this story. The humanity.

Cheney, at the inauguration. Clearly, he has a bright vision for the future of our nation.

Muslim Pilgrims Think of Bush

While on the annual Hajj, some Muslims spent the part of the pilgrimage that requires one to throw rocks at a holy site by thinking of the Devil Bush.

Many pilgrims said they were thinking of Bush and his allies while they were hurling pebbles at the site where the devil is said to have appeared to the biblical patriarch Abraham.

"Yes, the devil is Bush and that other one from Israel -- (Prime Minister Ariel) Sharon. And there's (British Prime Minister) Blair too," said Egyptian Tia'amah Mohammed.

"We throw the stones so we can vent our anger at them."

This marks the first time President Bush has been stoned.

Well, since college...

Christian groups doing what they do best
Well it looks as if the uber-religious nuts haven't filled their zealousness quota for the month yet, and are compensating by criticizing a foundation that utilizes cartoon characters such as Sponge Bob to promote tolerance:

Christian groups however have taken exception to the tolerance pledge on the foundation's Web site, which asks people to respect the sexual identity of others along with their abilities, beliefs, culture and race.

I also take exception to this pledge. Personally I think children should be urged to despise the beliefs of far right Christians, and perhaps even be persuaded to beat up the children of those Christians. But honestly, these Christian family groups have more things to worry about, like the Rugrats Ice Show's "Kill God Tour '05," which should be coming to a town near you next month.

Protesting something or other
As you can see, I thought it would be fun to bring some good old fashioned satire to the parade route:

Kick the Leftist returns
KtL's hiatus is not without progress. Jon and I have decided to revamp the content of KtL. Serious political analysis is easy to find on the Internet. Solid analytical blogs are rampant. Part of the reason that I decided to take a month or so off from blogging is because in the month after the election, the political landscape could not have been more boring. A month of arguing over the minute details of why Bush won? No thanks. Instead of trying to keep up with people that do this for a living, Jon and I are going to start doing what we do best - be sarcastic, cynical jerks, writing about the ridiculous nature of politicians and their ways. KtL always had a more heavy sarcasm factor than most blogs. But now, aside from the occasional serious post, we've decided to focus on the lighter side of politics - a side which is in reality sad, but can certainly be looked at in a comical light. And what better time to do then shortly after it was announced that WMD were not to be found, Condi Rice was confirmed via a rather entertainingly bitter exchange, and the president has announced that "The best hope for peace in our world is the expansion of freedom in all the world." Get it? Freedom=peace. If Iraq teaches us one thing, it's definitely that.

To our loyal reader, we thank you for waiting around.

We're Back
Sorry for the extended, and unannounced, Kick the Leftist hiatus. Both Peter and I had final exams in December followed by the holiday season and winter break. Now that we are both back at school, Kick the Leftist will be back up and running in full functionality very soon.

Until then, read this.
