Cowards and fools, the lot of them.
Most cartel-related arrests in Mexico are followed by celebratory press conferences, and when soldiers hauled Lugo before the media, in December, he looked a lost little boy. He told reporters in a whisper that he had started killing at the age of eleven because he was threatened and under the influence of drugs, and earned only two hundred dollars a week. (The newspaper La Razon reported in...

“Where’s the chapel?” Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) asked as he emerged from an arm-twisting session with Majority Leader Eric Cantor Thursday night. The freshman lawmaker explained that he wanted to “go to the divine source.” In a room off the Capitol Rotunda, Scott joined a prayer session with fellow South Carolinian lawmakers. “I hope the Lord… gives men wisdom when they desperately need...
Age-Related Memory Loss Reversed in Monkeys →
New research from Yale University uncovers cellular changes that seem to underlie this type of memory loss in monkeys, and shows that it can be reversed with drugs. By delivering a certain chemical to the brain, researchers could make neurons in old monkeys behave like those in young monkeys. Clinical trials of a generic drug that mimics this effect are already underway. I NEED THESE DRUGS.
Does anyone like Republicans? Nyet.
A top Russian official today called Sens. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) and Mark Kirk (R-IL) “radicals” and “monsters of the Cold War” and warned that the U.S.-Russia relationship would collapse if Republicans came to power. Dmitry Rogozin, Russia’s ambassador to NATO, met with Kyl and Kirk yesterday in Washington — but they probably won’t be meeting again anytime...
Baoguette / Pho Sure →
I tried this last night with a friend, and I guess i have to stop telling people that I don’t love Vietnamese food now. We had pho, banh mi, and barbecued chicken on rice with a fried egg. All of which I would highly recommend. The chicken and rice, which should have been boring, was some of the best comfort food I’ve had in a long time. Tender chicken, perfectly cooked egg that...

As recently as January 2009, the FBI thought its agents ought to know the following crucial information about Muslims: They engage in a “circumcision ritual” More than 9,000 of them are in the U.S. military Their religion “transforms [a] country’s culture into 7th-century Arabian ways.” And this was what the FBI considered “recommended reading” about Islam: A much-criticized tome, The Arab...

Can we just burn down the country now?
“The debt ceiling debate would ruin Christmas,” Plouffe said. He was apparently ad-libbing the line, but now it’s found its way into the White House’s official talking points. This might complicate the FoxNews War on Christmas! coverage.
Consciousness is like the light trapped in the greenhouse of language.– Mark Kingwell (via thenotes) That would explain the smell.

jasencomstock: nebraska-admiral: Hi, I’m 27 years old and still afraid of the telephone. Im 32 and terrified of it, so? For me, it’s more loathing than fear.
theconjecturer: aatombomb: I went back to my new favorite coffee shop for another Red Eye (!!!!GOOD MORNING!!!!), and spotted this on my way out. This is, at best, only a half-win given how expensive it is. OR MAYBE IT’S NOT AND IS INSTEAD A COMMENTARY! OMG. The bag next to this one was $50/lb., so I think you might have a different notion of what expensive means in DC when it comes to...

Part of me actually believes that Obama is a...
But the rest of me understands that even he is limited by the psychos that he is dealing with, and that things might actually go very, very wrong for us. And that this is exactly what the GOP wants - a total economic meltdown that sweeps a Republican into office in 2012. That feeling that I got watching this country swear in its first black president? Yeah, this feeling is the opposite of that.
So my mother called...
“I heard New York legalized gay marriage?” Awkward pause. Her position on this issue has evolved somewhat over the years. It started with the basic “I think you people should leave marriage alone,” and although I’ve spent years arguing the finer points with her and she’s been very supportive of me and Jeff (especially through his medical misadventures) I...
wilwheaton: John Boehner’s “blank check” lie This is a straight-up lie. Not the everyday, casual fudging that politicians do, but a straight up lie. As the Government Accountability Office explains: “The debt limit does not control or limit the ability of the federal government to run deficits or incur obligations. Rather, it is a limit on the ability to pay obligations already incurred.” ...

Can you tell that I hate-subscribe to UrbanDaddy? It never fails to provide perfectly loathsome content.
