ihopericksantorum: “We know the candidate Barack Obama what he was like, the anti-war goverment nigg—the uh—…” Wow. The amount of people trying to say he wasn’t going to use the n-word is seriously insane. What else was he going to say? I see people saying that he was going to say “anti-war governmentnik”… uh, what? That makes no sense. There’s also the...
I apologize to anyone offended by what one prominent black conservative called...– Geraldo Rivera, giving the worst apology ever. (via theatlantic) “A Black person agreed with me, so here, have a fauxpology.” - Geraldo Rivera, casual racist (via stfuconservatives) This guy is officially the second-worst person on the earth right now. (The first clearly being George Zimmerman.)
Journalismism: Sexile in Guyville: Lady Writers... →
Emma Carmichael has a great article over on Gawker about female journalists and the men they profile. I’m sad it’s not getting the attention it deserves, though, when other crap “articles” on Gawker are getting tons of comments and views.
My Brain Is Trying To Kill Me.: Called a racist on... →
chockfullofhoot: 14kgoldnyc: No, really. This goes against all my ingrained desire to reason with people. But she was just so doggamm ignorant I lashed out. So I do feel guilty. But I’m gonna try to put it out of my mind. Away away away I don’t care if someone like her thinks I’m nice… I think it’s natural to feel bad when you have to criticize a friend (or acquaintance) on...
Does anyone else have friends on Facebook who will post these absurd urban legends about Obama? I’m from the south, so of course a lot of my friends are conservative. Which, whatever, no one’s perfect, but they’ll post these stupid stories that have been going around well before Obama was even known and changing the name to “Obama” and presenting it as fact....

If You're Feeling Bold...
See how long you can make it through Atlas Shrugged on Netflix Watch Instantly. First of all, it’s not a good movie. That much is obvious. But it’s even worse than Ayn Rand’s novel in how it beats you over the head with how the poor are just blood sucking individuals who don’t work hard and only leach off the wealth of others. It’s disgusting, honestly. Perfectly...
bricksandmortarandchewinggum: I think I have to throw away some old running socks. They’ve been washed so many times the material is like …harsh. You know? And it’s bother my feet on longer runs. Is this a thing that happens or am I going completely insane? I know what you mean — when socks get so worn that the material becomes really thin and almost rough, in a way. Try the Wrightsock....
How Conversations Go When You're from a Small Town
“Dammit, man, stop asking me if I know someone from my town! Just because I’m from there doesn’t mean I know every single person in it. Oh, him? Yeah, I know him… he’s cool.”
bricksandmortarandchewinggum: I don’t get the Chloe Moretz thing. Granted, I’ve only ever seen her on 30 Rock and maybe she’s amazing in something else? But she seems like a completely terrible actor. Watch Let Me In. She’s fantastic in that. And even if you don’t like (500) Days of Summer, she’s a little scene-stealer in it.
Netflix, Please Don't Go Cable →
theatlantic: A report from Reuters that Netflix is in talks with an unnamed cable company has us worried. The information comes from unnamed sources and only mentions a quiet discussion of adding the streaming service to cable, but if it all pans out, Netflix will become ”available as another on-demand option for cable subscribers through their set-top boxes … as an additional option added onto...
POLL: Texas Voters Want The State To Keep Funding... →
abaldwin360: nomoretexasgovernorsforpresident: Fifty-nine percent of Texas voters oppose a new rule that cuts off funds from the joint state-federal Women’s Health Program to Planned Parenthood, while 38 percent of voters approve of it, according to a new survey from Public Policy Polling. This is in Texas, people. The freaking GOP is all about the politics of it. Not what the people...
Kirk Cameron: 'Be More Tolerant of My Intolerance'
Forgive my tardiness on the issue, but I didn’t have time to write about this earlier. Anyway, apparently Kirk Cameron has responded to his “critics” in an exclusive response to ABC News. In it, Cameron makes numerous totally legitimate points, including that he has gay friends so he’s not a bigot, and that people should be more tolerant of his intolerance. Wait, what?...

Marry Me, Amber Tamblyn
I already loved Amber Tamblyn from her acting work (I loved her on House last season), but her tricking Tyrese Gibson into thinking she was Amber Rose is amazing. Well, to be fair, she didn’t really trick him so much as he tricked himself. She definitely saved her best for last, too, because this is actually pretty awesome.
I Hope Rick Santorum...
I hope Rick Santorum gets the first overall pick in his fantasy sports league and in the first game of the season that player gets a season-ending injury.
