Are you ready for some Nice Time that only needed to happen because there was some very Not Nice Time in the first place? SHUT UP YOU ARE TOO. Today, Bamz partially commuted a prison sentence for one Ceasar Cantu, who was convicted in 2006 of drug dealing, dropping his sentence from 15 years to […]

It’s probably time for you to stop working and start dicking around on the Internet, so here are some Happy links to help you do just that. We told you about the recursive tech nightmare that is a crowdfunding site raising money via crowdfunding, which was bound to happen sooner or later. We surveyed the […]

Last year, Douglas Phillips, the head of Vision Forum Ministries, one of those deeply creepy Quiverfull churches, and total superfriend of Clown Car Vagina Family Duggars, stepped down after revealing he’d had a “lengthy, inappropriate affair” with a ladyperson. He kinda sorta forgot to mention that the “inappropriate affair” was actually a 6-year pattern of […]

Another day, another Whiny Christian Kids Wear Anti-Gay Shirts To School story. Seriously, we’re going to come up with a way to just insert the name of the school and the date so we can automate this stuff. This week, it’s Oregon City High School, where some big baby just couldn’t stand the fact that […]

When we were young people, we would have blanched at the thought of our potential boss calling our parents about our potential job, though it is tough to imagine the CEO of Starbuck would have called Mom about our barista gig. But this is now a thing bosses do, and thing millennials like. We are […]

Thanks to the miracle of the Internet, you now have many crowdfunding options to fling your money at, like Kickstarter or Indiegogo. But those are so passe. Why not give some of your hard-earned monies to a crowdfunding site whose first order of business is to crowdfund itself? People, we give you SeedInvest. SeedInvest already […]

It’s Monday, which means so much of our Happyness is tied up in teevee-watching from Sunday night. Do you know how exhausting it is to watch television professionally when everyone insists on airing things on the same day? Because of that, we’ve got Parenthood, which actually airs on Thursday but leave us alone it took […]

Man, we hadn’t thought of Bernard Goldberg in AGES because he doesn’t seem to have published any new screedbooks to pimp at CPAC about the lamestream media, but apparently he has kept on truckin’ over at his mighty fine looking blog where he and his bloggers — probably nine of them, full-time — are just […]

Man, it is a great time to be gay and the saddest time ever to hate on the gays, as state after state after state turns homosexual. Ohio was only partly gay, having recognized gay marriage for the purpose of death certificates late last year, but now they have let the homosexxicans take over everything […]

We are discomfited when we find ourselves on the same side as Glenn Beck. Is it because we fear he’s standing next to us just to stab us in the kidneys? Yes! Is it because we fear he is off the rails and therefore if we are agreeing we might have jumped the track as […]

Let’s be honest. There is a lot of bad public art, like the terrifyingly large Marilyn Monroe statue or the rictus death smile Henry Winkler one, but sometimes public art is cool and provocative but then when it is those things, lots of people do not like it at all, oh no they don’t. Take, […]

Do you dig Mike Huckabee? Who doesn’t, really? If you do, you’ll definitely be into his speech at the Conservative Value Freedom Summit God Bless America Property Rights Jamboree thing over the weekend, sponsored, of course, by Citizens United and Americans For Prosperity. Huckabee, like every other conservative there, was stroking himself off to the […]

There is probably no better way to start your NYT Sunday (and no better way to gird your loins against reading Ross Douthat later) than checking out the big piece on how North Carolina Republicans are eating themselves alive as moderately awful candidates battle severely awful candidates in the Republican primary for Senate so that […]

We have a double dose of Happy links for you this afternoon because we got drunk and forgot were called away to an urgent meeting yesterday, so you get a two-for today. We told you about how Jon Stewart mocked the ever-living fuck out of Sean Hannity’s spring break “expose.” SPOILER ALERT: college kids party! […]

So let’s say you are a well-populated county (just go with it, please) and people express concern that the bathrooms available at your polling places — where people sometimes wait for HOURS to vote — are not sufficiently accessible to those with disabilities. Do you (a) retrofit the existing bathrooms to ensure accessibility? (b) build […]
