Utah Language School Fires Blogger For Promoting Homophone Agenda

And there go a quarter of the comments...
No matter how much we wish this was a case of a paper overselling its headline, it is absolutely true: A social-media specialist for a private language school in Provo, Utah, has been fired because he wrote a blog piece about homophones, which his employer worried would make the school seem gay somehow. You see, Nomen Global Language Center is a school for foreigns learning English, and owner Clarke Woodger was very upset at blogger Tim Torkildson (all names in this story are real, even if they sound like they’re from a Dickens novel set in Lake Wobegon) for using that word. So here’s what happens when you write a Facebook post about words that sound the same but have different meanings, but you work for an ash whole: Read more on Utah Language School Fires Blogger For Promoting Homophone Agenda…

Dumbest Birther Claim Yet? Hawaii Health Director Couldn’t Fit In Own Casket, Says Birther, Proving…????

Yr Wonkette would just like to call on the conspiracy theorists of the world, especially the Birthers, to work a little bit on their communication skills. Case in point: this blog thing claiming that something is definitely wrong with a purported photograph of the open casket of Loretta Fuddy, the Hawaii state health director who verified Barack Obama’s birth certificate in 2011, and who died following a plane crash off the island of Molokai in December — Fuddy and the other people on the plane made it out and inflated their life vests, but she died of heart arrhythmia while waiting to be rescued. Obviously, since nothing in wingnutland ever just happens, she was probably murdered by the Obama administration. And now we have this amazing claim by blogger “Butterdezillion,” who has determined that the body in Fuddy’s casket is not hers, or it is, but she’s got somebody else’s hands or something, because the casket isn’t big enough to hold Fuddy, as plainly shown by photo analysis, proving that…um… well, damned if we really know, because this particular birther is such a bad writer that they haven’t made even the slightest attempt to explain what they think this proves.

Internet Seeks ‘Off Switch’ For Joe Lieberman

Fearmongering terror toad Joe Lieberman is the worst person in the Senate — not because he’s the dumbest, or the most personally repulsive, but because he has spent the past decade using his supposed “credibility” as a Democrat senator to wage domestic war against the American People. His latest attempt is an Internet Gulag for anyone who types “like a Muslim.” Vinegar Joe wants some button on every blog so all the assholes like him can “flag” and presumably remove anything on the entire Internet that offends Lieberman’s two interests (invading/destroying Muslim countries and bombing all individual Muslims).

FBI Raids Computers of Koch-Monster Scott Walker’s Henchwoman

Another of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s propagandists on the public payroll had her home and computers raided by the FBI and state police, on Wednesday. The “former top aide,” Cynthia A. Archer, is currently on “paid sick leave” but had been the deputy chief of Walker’s comically corrupt administration. What did all the G-men want with this Walker tool’s computers? And why had she passed one off on her neighbor, who happily handed it back to the FBI so they could do forensics on the hard drive? Oh, it’s all part of this sketchy Walker operation to have a bunch of his goons (on the government payroll, of course) flood blogs and websites with comments supporting Walker and his Kochian policies against the citizens of Wisconsin.

Rick Sanchez Hires Publicist To Promote Rick Sanchez Post On HuffPo

One day you’re bringing home six figures from CNN, the next day you’re unemployed and apologizing to the fucking Jews and trying to figure out how to get paid from Twitter. That is the complete Wikipedia entry for Rick Sanchez, the dumbest anchorman since Ron Burgundy. And now, for reasons we cannot even begin to fathom, Rick has hired a New York publicity firm to send emails to our former morning editor (a Jew) about Sanchez posting something banal on Huffington Post about something Rick saw in a Jewish publication.

Canada Urging HuffPo Bloggers To Revolt, Like In Egypt

There is literally nothing more important on Earth than America Online’s purchase of Arianna Huffington’s celebriporn blog. Nothing. This is why Canadian agents provocateurs are leaving comments on the NYT calling for insurrection. Insurrection! This particular Canadian (we hide his assumed name to protect ourselves from the tanks of oppression) wants HuffPo bloggers to quit writing free blog posts for the HuffPo. Sounds like sedition to us!

Gay-Stalking Michigan Asst. AG Takes Leave of Absence, Finally

Michigan Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell’s campaign to stop University of Michigan students from having a student body president WHO IS GAY is apparently over, and now he has taken a leave of absence from his job. That’s too bad! Shirvell’s Facebook profile and blog are now down too. And he will face a disciplinary hearing when he comes back to work. Just the other day, Shirvell showed up at a Michigan Student Assembly meeting and said he would “not back down.” That’s funny, because he just did! The radical gay student Nazi agenda wins again!

Unknown Hero In Saxby Chambliss’ Office Pens ‘Faggots’ Comment On Blog

In all the revelry over yesterday’s successful filibuster against overturning Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, somebody in Saxby Chambliss’ Atlanta office was on the gay politics blog Joe.My.God. and came up with a unique solution to the question of gays serving in the military: “All Faggots must die.” This person, calling himself “Jimmy,” posted this brilliant plan in the comments of a post on the failure of the cloture vote, and then the gays looked up his IP address, which told them it came from Saxby Chambliss’ office. Saxby Chambliss is now investigating who did this, because that man deserves a promotion. Read more on Unknown Hero In Saxby Chambliss’ Office Pens ‘Faggots’ Comment On Blog…

Guy On Internet Will Destroy the Census With FOIA Bombs

“Savvy Young Political Journalist” Stephen Robert Morse, who runs the news organization MyTwoCensus.com with Ben Franklin, is only trying to expose all of the crimes being committed by America’s people-counter gulag, the Census Bureau. Doing this important work requires him to file daily Freedom of Information Act requests asking the Bureau for millions of documents. But now the Census people want to charge America’s muckraker “exorbitant prices” for his courageous truth-questing. How will Savvy Stephen obtain justice for this civil rights violation against his blog? Read more on Guy On Internet Will Destroy the Census With FOIA Bombs…

Keith Olbermann So Sick of Daily Kos Commenters

MSNBC host Keith Olbermann is sick and tired of you libtards complaining about him on the DailyKos. So that’s it, no more Keith Olbermann blog posts on the Daily Kos … unless you people start behaving. You don’t have to behave really well, just make the site “the way it was even a year ago,” and then “let me know and I’ll be back.” Will it happen? Can it happen? More and more, it seems like every dream of the Obama Presidency is an oil-soaked dead pelican. [DailyKos] Read more on Keith Olbermann So Sick of Daily Kos Commenters…

How Did Senate’s Vote Against Oil-Lover Murkowski’s Bill Actually Murder America’s Troops?

The Senate defeated the Dirty Energy Industry’s sleazy attempt to prevent any kind of enforcement of gross carbon emissions, hooray, the ads on Wonkette worked! The AP had a pretty good single-sentence summary of what happened: “The defeated resolution would have denied the Environmental Protection Agency the authority to move ahead with the rules, crafted under the federal Clean Air Act.” But what really happened is Barack Obama literally pissed on the graves of dead veterans, at Arlington National Cemetery … and he did this right after Memorial Day!

Oil Explosion To Destroy Earth Before Global Warming Has A Chance

So you’ve probably been thinking throughout this whole gulf-destroying oil spill business: Isn’t there, like, some kind of meddling bureaucratic government agency that’s supposed to make whiny liberal complaints about potential environmental apocalypse when someone asks to set up an offshore drilling rig? Turns out that, whoops, there is, and they have been, but the Minerals Management Service has just been stone cold handing out permits anyway!

Obama To Democrats: Turn Off The Blogs

It’s even more fun when he yells at the Senate, and its Democrats! We’re sure Fox showed all of this one. However: no one is allowed to watch Fox anymore! Or CNN, or MSNBC. (Ha ha thank god he called out MSNBC by name; hilarious defensive Keith Olbermann Special Comment in 3…2…1…) Also, he says, turn off the blogs. Well, you heard the man, get out of here.

The Bloggers Are Too Busy Doing The Important Journalistic Work Of Denying They Wear Pajamas To Actually Wear Pajamas

So guess what: the blogs are up in arms—or wings, for the Twitter ones??—over this latest suggestion that the blog people wear pajamas. This happens every now and again: Some politician—or anonymous Obama aide, in this case—says something that implies that pajamas have anything at all to do with the Internet. It is always extremely important that these hateful allegations are refuted because of literally infinity reasons. What if people read the blogs, but were under the impression that the people writing them were wearing sweatpants? Yeah exactly. Which is why the theme of the Internet today is: flannel and journalism are mutually exclusive.

Some People Offended Or Whatever By MTV Show Being In Washington

Since the early 1960s, there has been an annual rumor about the teevee program The Real World doing a season in Washington, which is a city known as the capital of America. And this year, FINALLY, the important MTV grunge “camgirl” show is really for real being videotaped right here in DC. But not everyone is thrilled beyond belief — one person, in fact, has bravely launched a free blog account about how maybe it would’ve been vv good had the entertainment cable show The Real World done a season in Washington maybe during some earlier year but definitely not this year because what is even up with that?

Jeffrey Rosen Quits The Internet

The Internet has hurt the important feelings of the important “Joe Lieberman Liberal” New Republic political pamphlet’s important legal scholar Jeffrey Rosen, whose very important 1,000+ word front-page non-blog journalistically reported “The Case Against Sotomayor”-titled news article — which quotes various important anonymous ex-clerks calling Sotomayor dumb and mean and friendless and annoying — has of course become the GOP’s principal anti-Sotomayor talking points memo. This is not what he meant. Fuck the blogs! Read more on Jeffrey Rosen Quits The Internet…

NRO ‘The Corner’ Blogger Tells Coleman To Concede

What is this, the famous journal of conservative thought (now begging you to subscribe for HALF OFF!) is calling on Brave Norm Coleman to actually give up fighting this election he lost to an actual teevee clown? In one of the typical remedial-blog-posting bits which make “The Corner” required reading in, we don’t know, maybe child prison camps?, Ramesh Ponnuru dramatically makes the case that Coleman should give up the fight.
