Al Franken Is Insane

Good sweet Jesus God: “Al Franken draws a perfect map of the United States from memory while taking questions at a fundraiser.” Kos is more right than he thinks when he calls it “perfect,” in fact. Kentucky looks like a turd and liberal New England looks like it’s trying to escape from the rest of the country and sail back to Europe. [Daily Kos] Read more on Al Franken Is Insane…

Starbucks Denies Service To The Rich And Wounded!

The “A” location on this space satellite Google Maps image is 2101 L Street NW, the ONLY Starbucks that will be closed in Washington D.C. out of 600-ish closed ones nationwide. This is problematic for two reasons: (1) there is nary another bean shop anywhere near this rich, young-professionalized and textbook yuppie part of Northwest D.C. and (2) this was the Starbucks for HOSPITAL and WOUND CARE patients, as you can see. People get shot all the time with legal guns in this city and now they will have no Starbucks coffee! [Washington Post] Read more on Starbucks Denies Service To The Rich And Wounded!…
 

Ha Ha, Hillary Is A Republican

Here is a map someone at Daily Kos made, and it’s not even terrifying. OK, it is obviously terrifying in several ways. It is color-coded by votes in each county — blue for Barry, red for Hillary, green for that white guy who was running like 90 years ago. Florida, appropriately, looks like a barfy member.

To be fair, it is well known that The Illegals and their cohort take most of their political marching orders from liquor ads. Read more on Outraged Nativists Reclaim Mexico From Absolut Vodka…

Heckuva Job, Mappie: Google Disappears Post-Katrina Map Pix

There are now two places on Earth where New Orleans isn’t a half-abandoned wasteland: Micheal “Brownie” Brown’s mind and Google Maps. Inexplicably, the satellite maps the world has come to depend upon were replaced with pre-Katrina maps for the storm-wrecked Gulf Coast.

Mexico, Canada to Annex You

The “Security and Prosperity Project” will allow people from Winnipeg to vacation without having to stop in Kansas City. Did you know that the United States is planning a “merger” with Mexico? No? Because the Minutemen do, and they’ve got the documents that prove can be read in such a way as to suggest it! Read more on Mexico, Canada to Annex You…
 

Metro Section: Dying of Hunger

* Lloyd Bentsen hasn’t even been dead long enough to turn over in his grave, and already he has a rap obituary. [Dealing in Subterfuges] * While President Clinton loves Lauriol Plaza, the rest of the world continues to call it “the Bennigan’s of 18th St.” [FreeRide] Read more on Metro Section: Dying of Hunger…
 

Seriously, Is It Even Possible To Be Fired From DoD?

Above, hand-drawn directions to Donald Rumsfeld’s house, left on a table at a Dupont Starbucks by Eric Ruff two years ago (and redacted by Center for American Progress). This week, the Defense Department will name Eric Ruff their new Press Secretary. Well, from what we can see, he draws a very detailed map.
