just another sunny tuesday at the fox news network.

So sorry to get all political on y’all, but this is absurd.

Remember, Dana Perino was the press secretary who admitted to knowing nothing about the Cuban Missile Crisis (“It had to do with Cuba and missiles, I’m pretty sure.”) back in 2007. Maybe she doesn’t know about September 11 either. Anything is possible. It seems to me that Perino probably misspoke and meant to say that there were no terrorist attacks on American soil during Mr. Bush’s second term. That would technically be true; although, her rationale would categorize the Virginia Tech shootings as a terrorist attack. Oh yeah, that happened during Mr. Bush’s presidency. Would they consider the VT massacre a terrorist attack if Seung-Hui Cho was Muslim? It’s probably best not to answer that question. There is no way to look at Perino’s statement, as well as Sean Hannity’s analysis, and see it as anything other than Fox News’ standard rousing of the illiterate rabble against Mr. Obama. Rabble rabble all you want, just spell your signs correctly—please.

Also, including a disclaimer about not wanting to politicize the Fort Hood incident doesn’t make what Perino said less political. And, in my opinion, there is no one to blame for this other than the man who pulled the trigger and possibly his immediate co-workers for ignoring the warning signs. When one serviceman of twenty years flips out and decides to go on a murderous rampage, well, that’s what we call an isolated incident, people. It’s not like Mr. Obama received a memo like someone else I know.

This seems, um, wrong.

Well, this is certainly one way for Roguester Sarah Palin to put her name on the Iraqi Freedom brand—literally. Doesn’t seeing this make you feel a little dirty? Suddenly, staring at her airbrushed gams on the cover of Newsweek doesn’t seem like it’s such a bad thing.

I’m sure if our malevolent fascist dictator, President Obama, autographed currency with the face of a dead despot, he’d be seen as pledging his eternal allegiance to National Socialism (no, it doesn’t need to be cited properly), and he’d be single-handedly responsible for the collapse of the dollar. I mean, he’s already done all of this, right? An autographed Mao-dollar would just be the tangible proof.

Don’t get me wrong. The left is just as guilty of attacking the right in this way. I’m just saying that the only thing Sarah Palin is guilty of is tackiness; but that’s not news, is it?

you knew this was going to happen.

gomer pyle was gay? no way!

tonight my band played at the stud, a bar in san francisco that is better known as a “gay bar.” on thursdays, they host rock shows with all sorts of music. my prog band had the pleasure of sharing the bill with a folk group and a singer-songwriter. what was weird about this whole thing was the backlash i received from a lot my “progressive” acquaintances. one asked, “is tonight tranny night?” with a smirk and an aggressive tone. did he mean transgender, transexual, or transvestite? he didn’t make it clear. another, who is a very nice guy and wouldn’t ever pass harsh judgement on anybody (aloud), honestly thought that if he wore a pink shirt then he would get his ass grabbed. there were a lot of similar reactions from friends that would take too much time to document, and, frankly, i don’t want to get too deep into it. i guess the reason i’m writing this post is because i became hyper-aware of the homophobia in san francisco in one night. i knew it had to exist, but it’s one of those things that no one ever brings up — no one even uses expressions like “that’s gay!” to say something sucks like everyone does everywhere else. so before you get all high and mighty about hating san francisco for being the gayest town in the world, take comfort in the fact that there are still plenty of assholes like you with just as many insecurities about other people’s sexuality running around hating on gays willy nilly.
