I did a little experiment on Friday where I didn’t look at or read any news. Here are some of the reasons why:
Radioactive water from one of the damaged nuclear plants in
Japan is leaking into the Pacific Ocean. Closer to home, radioactive milk has now been detected right here in . I know we’re famous for our “happy cows,” but apparently now they also have a glow about them. California
At least the government has assured us that there's nothing to worry about and that's good enough for me. I mean, they've never lied to us before, right?
Looks like the pride of
is running for President… Minnesota
Michelle Bachman has gone to
to spread her message… Iowa
Anything to distract and divide, but nothing to deliver.
Over at Batcrap Crazy Central…
Donald Trump has been given a regular Monday morning spot on “Faux & Friends.” Despite being eviscerated by Bill O’Reilly on the subject, the Donald appears to be tossing his hairpiece in the presidential ring running on the “Birther Ticket…”
Because that’s the issue most middle-class families faced with losing their homes, unemployment, and skyrocketing gas and food prices are really concerned about – Obama’s birth certificate.
Oh, Donald. That is soooo 2009.
state flag. Pretty, isn’t it? The flaming torch stands for “liberty and enlightenment.” Indiana
Throwing water on that flame this week would be Republican state congressman Eric Turner. Turner led the legislature in voting to close the “loophole” that allows health insurance to pay for abortions in cases of rape and incest.
And “why?” any reasonable person might ask. Thanks. I’m glad you did.
Because there might be some women eager to file a false police report, then stand up in a public courtroom and lie about such a thing all to get a freebie abortion out of their insurance company.
And for that Republican Eric Turner, you and your GOP state colleagues are the worthy recipients of this week’s “Steaming Pile Of Shit Award.”
The folks in this week’s update make Charlie Sheen look positively rational. In fact, if I had a kid, I’d pick Sheen as a role model over any of the above.
Okay. So maybe it’s best that I never had kids.
Still, this week Sheen announced that he’ll be donating one dollar from each ticket sold for his “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not An Option” Tour to the Red Cross Japanese Earthquake Relief Fund.
And that’s more good than the entire GOP has done since taking office in January.
Help me make this go viral...
