Bérubé is Back

Michael Bérubé is blogging again.

(And there was much rejoicing.)

We're Doomed

Time to move away from the coasts: Arctic Sea "Foaming" with Methane?.

(I think I just figured out why the fundies "don't believe" in global warming -- they actually do, but they want it to happen so that godless, degenerate, "elitist" coastal cities are inundated.)

Why We Should All Love Dan Savage

Because he wants to be Sarah Palin's Gay Friend.

UPDATE: other people also want to be Palin's GBFF.

Can We Trade in Biden?

Can we trade in Biden for Marcy Kaptur (D-OH)? To see what I mean, watch this.

Has the LHC destroyed the World Yet?

Here are a few answers.


For the curious, the HTML on those is quite funny.

(By popular (sic) demand.)

Agreeing with the Rude Pundit (again)

The Rude Pundit[1] exhorts Obama to crush McCain over the recent "Obama wants to teach kids about sex before they learn to read" ad.

I couldn't agree more, but want to add that the right person to really take a baseball bat to these people is Bill Clinton. It'd also be a great way for him to get his mojo back.

And while he's at it, he should smack Lynn Westmoreland a few times.

Mr. Clinton, it's time to step up and serve your country.

[1] NSFW. Strong language, mature themes. In other words, stuff that makes Republicans whine.

But She's a "Hockey Mom"!

So Sarah Palin is a racist and a sexist meanie.

Projected effect on the presidential race: zero.

(McCain making an incredibly nasty joke about Chelsea Clinton or laughing when a supporter refers to Hilary Clinton as "the bitch", hasn't seemed to hurt him. And Lynn Westmoreland [of "I can't name more than two of the 10 Commandments but I want to post them everywhere" fame] called Obama "uppity" on the record. So I'm not sanguine about any of this doing anything other than motivating the troglodyte Right.)

Best "Obvious" Upgrade Ever

You know how really amazingly smart inventions sometimes look blindingly obvious in retrospect?

Boingboing links to 3-outlet power plates.

Brilliant. And retrospectively obvious.
