  1. Bill Maher is usually well worth the time.

    And if I miss it, I can count on you to bring some of the best bits to your blog.

  2. If there are any honest to God thinking Republicans in the United States – and I’m sure there are, somewhere… I mean, the math says there has to be at least a couple – they must be going out of their frigging minds watching this crew of morons stumble around the nation. The debates play out like a Three Stooges movie that includes the rest of the extended family.

    From time to time one of them comes out with something clever or salient. Or even tries to rise above the fray and talk about the issues rather than merely beating on the guy next to him with a rubber mallet… but then, two minutes later, he’s back at his post as the King of What The Fuck.

    There isn’t a single one of them who consistently comes off as rational, or, hell, even thoughtful and it just must drive anyone who remembers the Republican gold years of Ronald Reagan (49 state win, anyone?) straight to the bottle (maybe that’s what’s wrong with Rick Perry’s speech!?!) in order to endure listening to them (and yeah, even with dementia Reagan outpaced these wackjobs!). Never mind the fact that they have to contend with the notion that one of these asshats will stand under the same banner that once flew over Abraham Lincoln.

    All in all, though, it’s God-damned entertaining.

  3. Terry: It must be a frustrating experience for any thoughtful Republicans (and yes, they do exist) to witness the Gong Show that is their primary contest with this insane clown posse of candidates vying for attention.

  4. I am no fan of the Denver Bronco’s, could not care less about Tim Tebow, but he threw two touchdown passes and rushed for 117 yards in a 38-24 win over the favoured Raiders in Oakland today. He may or may not be the long term Bronco quarterback solution, but he sure the hell can run for a “girl”.
    Bill Maher can sure make an ass of himself, anonymous is right.

  5. Rotter: Once again… completely missing the point by a mile.

    Besides, I think Maher was referring to the Broncos’ 45-10 loss to the Detroit Lions the previous week. In that game, Tebow had the ball stripped from his hand and scooped up for a TD, threw an interception that was returned 100 yards for a score, completed only 18 of 39 passes for 172 yards, and was sacked seven times. Where was Jeebus???

  6. I do not know who Jeebus is, but if you are referring to Jesus, he does not pick winners and losers. He is only concerned with your personal testimony and attitude. Tim Tebow would be the first to tell you this.

  7. Pop culture reference… Look it up if you get the chance.

    What an amazingly prosaic God that’s concerned with one’s “personal testimony and attitude”… kind of like a Divine guidance councilor or Holy agony aunt. God as Oprah. How utterly pathetic.

  8. I dunno, I can only imagine that God and Jesus are probably getting sick of having to listen to other people constantly defining them, telling people what they do and don’t do, what they think about this that or the other thing, etc, etc, etc.

    It would drive me ’round the bend and I’m not omniscient (yet).

  9. i bet odin and zeus are happy to be relieved of much of their load. fsm (his noodly appendage be upon us) doesn’t know what he’s getting himself into.
