How extreme were conservative commentators in their remarks this year? How about calls to nuke the Middle East and an allegation that a "gay … mafia" used the congressional page program as its own "personal preserve." Right-wing rhetoric documented by Media Matters for America included the nonsensical (including Rush Limbaugh's claim that America's "obesity crisis" is caused by, among other things, our failure to "teach [the poor] how to butcher a -- slaughter a cow to get the butter, we gave them the butter"), the offensive (such as right-wing pundit Debbie Schlussel's question about "Barack Hussein Obama": Is he "a man we want as president when we are fighting the war of our lives against Islam? Where will his loyalties be?"), and the simply bizarre (such as William A. Donohue's claim that some Hollywood stars would "sodomize their own mother in a movie"). Since there were so many outrageous statements, we included a list of honorable mentions along with the top 11, which, if not for Ann Coulter, we might have limited to 10. via Alternet

Behind Bush's "new way forward" | Salon.com
Repudiated in the midterm elections, Bush has elevated himself above politics, and repeatedly says, "I am the commander in chief." With the crash of Rove's game plan for using his presidency as an instrument to leverage a permanent Republican majority, Bush is abandoning the role of political leader. He can't disengage militarily from Iraq because that would abolish his identity as a military leader, his default identity and now his only one.
HAWTHORNE, Fla. -- Who are you going to call when you buy bad crack?
Authorities said Eloise Reaves recently complained to a sheriff's deputy after getting a beat rock. Reaves was arrested after she approached a Putnam County, N.C., deputy at a convenience store.
Reaves said that instead of crack, the rock she bought was a mixture of wax and cocaine. A local newspaper reported that the woman even put the bad crack on the deputy's patrol car for inspection.

Reaves is now charged with possession of cocaine and is free on $1,500 bond.

I am in love with Taquitos.net -- they review snack food, one of my favorite things.
Last week... a ninety-two-year-old woman was killed in a
shootout with Atlanta police, a Houston teenager was
sentenced to jail for sodomizing a Hispanic teenager with
a patio umbrella while shouting "White Power!," and a
professional dominatrix testified that an officer in the
Greenburgh, New York, police department had extracted
sexual favors from her. "He wanted to go to a motel in the
Bronx where I would defecate on him," she said, "but I
told him I was uncomfortable going to the Bronx."
Think before you take a screenshot when you have a folder called Shemale Vids on your desktop. Dan would do something like that.
Finally, Champagne Beer.
And we have pics!
It's been a while since we've seen one of these...
Amusing article from 1981 on Babbage - The [programming] language of the future
For years, programming languages have used "FOR," "DO UNTIL," "DO WHILE," etc. to mean "LOOP." Continuing with this trend, Babbage offers the following loop statements:
DON'T DO WHILE NOT - This loop is not executed if the test condition is not false (or if it's Friday afternoon).
DIDN'T DO - The loop executes once and hides all traces.
CAN'T DO - The loop is pooped.
DO-WAH - Used to write timing loops for computer-generated music (Rag Timing).<all>
Slashdot had to suspend all coments today... oops.
Last night we crossed over 16,777,216 comments in the database. The wise amongst you might note that this number is 2^24, or in MySQLese an unsigned mediumint. Unfortunately, like 5 years ago we changed our primary keys in the comment table to unsigned int (32 bits, or 4.1 billion) but neglected to change the index that handles parents. We're awesome! Fixing is a simple ALTER TABLE statement... but on a table that is 16 million rows long, our system will take 3+ hours to do it, during which time there can be no posting. So today, we're disabling threading and will enable it again later tonight. Sorry for the inconvenience. We shall flog ourselves appropriately.
Rumsfeld just resigned. It feels like Christmas!

Mer and Pam fly high @ Trapeze School
I am sick and tired of seeing a country as prosperous as the US rot under the reign of the Bush royal family. It's a 21st century and the American roads are still not capable of supporting camels! Jews are still allowed to marry. An average American still can't afford having rat meat for dinner and gypsies are allowed to wear pants.
I was on Myspace a little ago, and no shit, I saw a girl who spells her name Britni. Britni! Can you fucking imagine!? I mean, how many ways can you spell that? Every time I am looking for strangers to send pictures of my cock to, someone is spelling Brittany differently. I don’t get it.

For the graphically-inclined, Marty Neumeier illustrates the differences between Marketing, Advertising, PR, and Branding on pages 24 and 25 of ZAG. This is the best, most simplistic definition, visual or verbal, of core marketing disciplines that I’ve ever seen.

Bomb threats delay school’s start in Allentown
The Allentown School District had to delay the start of school and evacuate students from all 22 district buildings this morning after four separate bomb threats were called into the Allentown Communications Center.
According to school officials, the district's director of facilities received a call at 7 a.m. from the city's emergency dispatch that there were bombs placed in every school in the district.
