"We had eight years of Bush and Cheney, now you get mad!?"


from Rosie O'Donnell's blog via freakgirl:

You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy.

You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

You didn't get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn't get mad when we spent over 600 billion(and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.

You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn't get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

You didn't get mad when we gave a 900 billion tax break to the rich.

You didn't get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all okay with you, but helping other Americans...oh hell no.
Pssst: Pass it on.

A Well-Informed Electorate




Here is one of the definitions of the word "electorate": "the body of enfranchised citizens; those qualified to vote". I don't think a single one of the tea partyers in the above interview are qualified for anything other than sticking their heads up their own asses.

It's Official:


OK Go is hereby proclaimed (by me) the only band that's allowed to make music videos:


You can read about the machine's creation over at the creators' site, syynlabs.com.

(and I guess the band worked out that embedding problem with their label)*

*They worked it out, indeed.

I Like Turtles




These Auto-Tune the News guys (and gal) continue to entertain and amuse. However, what's up with their XPAC appearance?!?!



I hope the cash was worth their brief stay in Hell.
