Enjoy Your Weekend!
To get you through the weekend, here's a great video in which the CBC makes a fool of Ann Coulter.

Dean looking to take DNC chair
Well, it looks as if Howard is going to take the helm. It's pretty much set in stone now - when has Dean ever gone into a vote looking like the clear winner and then been upset? I just can't see it.

Seriously, though, it's definitely a good thing that Dean is taking the lead. As a party we Dems have been on the ground for a few years now. What we really need to get going is a good, solid kick in the face.

Terrorists use toys
Jokes writing themselves, part 1:

A photograph posted on an Islamist Web site appears to be that of an action figure and not a U.S. soldier being held hostage.

Liam Cusack, the marketing coordinator for Dragon Models USA, said the figure pictured on the Web site is believed to be "Special Ops Cody," a military action figure the company manufactured in late 2003.

Well, that's ridiculous. But the question is, how did it become clear that it was a toy? Well, let's see:

Maybe because it's fucking obvious? Who are these idiots? Passing that off to a few people might work, but are they really going to trick a whole country into thinking that's a person? They could have at least taken off some of Special Ops Cody's equipment. On the other hand, this is a great chance for us to see what they do when we don't respond to their demands.

Pelosi strikes back
Go get 'em Nancy!

"What the president says, the president will be held accountable for."

No, seriously though, Nancy, did you have something to say?

High Schoolers hate freedom
Well this is intriguing:

The way many high school students see it, government censorship of newspapers may not be a bad thing, and flag burning is hardly protected free speech.

It turns out the First Amendment is a second-rate issue to many of those nearing their own adult independence, according to a study of high school attitudes released today.

The original amendment to the Constitution is the cornerstone of the way of life in the United States, promising citizens the freedoms of religion, speech, press and assembly.

Yet, when told of the exact text of the First Amendment, more than one in three high school students said it goes "too far" in the rights it guarantees. Only half of the students said newspapers should be allowed to publish freely without government approval of stories.

It seems that the government might be better suited not wasting time and money on censorship. However, dumping money into the education of these retards might be even more of a black hole

For Mourning, Green Is The New Black
Recently, about thirty world leaders including Vladamir Putin and Jacques Chirac visted Auschwitz in a solemn remembrance of the camp's liberation sixty years prior. Representing the United States was Dick Cheney.

Other leaders at the event in Poland on Thursday marking the 60th anniversary of the death camp's liberation, such as French President Jacques Chirac and Russian President Vladimir Putin, wore dark, formal overcoats and dress shoes or boots.

"The vice president, however, was dressed in the kind of attire one typically wears to operate a snow blower," Robin Givhan, The Washington Post's fashion writer, wrote in the newspaper's Friday editions.

Between the somber, dark-coated leaders at the outdoor ceremony sat Cheney, resplendent in a green parka embroidered with his name and featuring a fur-trimmed hood, the laced brown boots and a knit ski cap reading "Staff 2001."

"And, indeed, the vice president looked like an awkward boy amid the well-dressed adults," Givhan wrote.

I'm not sure what caption I could write for this picture to make it any more humorous or appalling than it already is.
