America: It’s over, we’re history.
The death of America began around here….
I believe I have this figured out. Trig Palin is not a retard. However, his mother and Rush Limbaugh clearly are. And a litle proof is here and here. And here. And, not that “Fucking” Rahm Emanuel was referring to President Palin, she is in fact a fucking retard. And remember: she’s running! And why not? Barack Obomba has proven that in a corporatist state, there’s no need for a president with any intelligence.
Dysfunctional enough for you? A Dem wants to filibuster an Obomba nominee.

Except I’m sure the rightist haters of the troops would actually enjoy the kind of guy that does shit like this.
Iceland joins the club: It wants to keep it’s people ignorant.
The ineptitude of the TSA airport screeners: The latest chapter.
The Google phone early termination fee is now somewhat less obscene — but still excessive enough to be evil.
I love Jon Stewart as much as the next guy, but this is maybe too much. But if you really need to see it….
What I “missed” in the Super Bowl (assuming I missed anything other than gobs of homoerotica):
And for those who actually give a shit, this is my last word on this year’s game:
Scenes from the Tokyo sausage restaurant:
