Think back on all the tales that you remember… of Whackalot.

It has been a tough week or so for Kathryn Jean Lopez with her beloved Catholic church making NAMBLA look like a bunch of Boy Scouts (hey-o!) and young Republicans of her age group busting through almost $2000 (all in singles) frequenting drinking establishments featuring nakey-topless strap-on awesomeness.

NYT: Secretary of Army says he won't pursue DADT discharges

Gee, Mr. President — here’s one branch on board; what’s with the lack of spine to pursue the legislative end to DADT? The secretary of the Army, John M. McHugh, said Wednesday that he was effectively ignoring the “don’t ask, don’t tell” law because he had no intention of pursuing

Wednesday Night Hump the Jukebox

Before we get started… Regarding American Idol: Michelle Dellamore – She seemed to have a decent voice, but her song choice was pure crap. Seriously, the entirety of America hates Creed. Choosing a Scott Stapp song was clearly her downfall. When people who actually give a shit about American Idol

Late Night: Beg Your Pardon, Jedi Wolverines, But What We MEANT Was “Give Us Money So We Don’t Have to Get Actual Jobs”

A startling revelation from that World-Renowned scholar,  J. Goldberg, Pt.Ld. This combination of state power and murderous, genocidal intent is nowhere on display in America today, not in the Obama administration (contrary to what some overheated right-wingers claim) and certainly not among out-of-power conservatives and “tea partiers.” Well, that’s a
