Dennis Kucinich would like to have Ron Paul as his running mate.

My brain has officially given up. There's no way you could top that.

WTF? (Republican Evil Edition, volume XXXVII)

The Carpetbagger Report has the story that wounded soldiers are being asked to return signing bonuses because, you see, they aren't fulfilling the terms of their contract. Because, being wounded, they aren't out there fighting.

I think my head has officially imploded.

How pathetic can the Democrats be to have this bullshit going on and still not be able to fight off the Support the Troops "argument"?

Why Are Democrats So Lame, #1319: Torture Edition

Via Making Light and Carpetbagger Report, an Air Force interrogator smacks down the idea that torture can work in a "ticking bomb" situation.

Why isn't the Democratic response to these chickenhawks simply this?

  • Torture doesn't work.
  • Torture is immoral. There's no room for relativism here.
  • Torture puts our troops at risk. If we torture, we pretty much guarantee that our troops will be tortured. If you're pro-torture, you're against the troops.

This seems obvious to me. Am I missing something?

Is it Just Me...

...or is anyone else wondering what Trey Parker and Matt Stone could do with a straight-up fantasy epic (perhaps in paper-craft animation like South Park)?

(See TV Squad or Comedy Central for more info, or to watch the Imaginationland 3-parter.)

Now That's What I'm Talking About

MIT's modular car.

I don't want to buy another car -- we simply don't need one -- but it'd be nice to have rentals easily available, and I live just slightly too far out (so far) for ZipCar.

Plus, this is really neat.
