Hardened Criminal Dinesh D’Souza Finally Freed From Maximum Security Sleep-Away Camp

He calls this his 'hoodlum chic' look. Really.
Convicted felon Dinesh D’Souza is free at last, FREE AT LAST! from his eight-month sentence of being held in “overnight captivity” in a “community confinement center.” D’Souza, as we all know because of how he has been on TV and radio shows every five minutes to talk about it, was sent to the San Diego gulag by Barack Obama himself, in an attempt to silence D’Souza from criticizing the Obama administration, aka, making illegal campaign donations, in violation of federal elections law, because THAT’S HOW MUCH HE LOVES AMERICA.

San Diego Cops Thought Brothers Were Robbing Own Store, Beat Them Up Just To Be Sure

The 3-year-old looks especially suspicious
Hey, San Diego Police, have you roughed up anyone entering their own property lately? Oh, you have? Bet you probably had a really good reason for it, at least, huh? Yes, Dear Wonkers, if it’s not abundantly clear by now, this is definitely going to be one of those stories where you’ll need to remove any heavy objects from your desk, lest you hurl them through your computer monitor.

Making A Hippity Hop Album Basically Same Thing As Murder

File Photo: the average Californian voter, or D.A., whatever.
San Diego prosecutors are doing their darnedest to make sure a man goes to jail for the rest of his life for a crime he didn’t commit. That’s not a matter of conjecture, like, “No, he’s totes innocent.” Prosecutors aren’t even trying to say he committed a murder. Or that he planned, ordered, aided, or abetted a murder. Instead, prosecutors claim, this guy should spend the rest of his life in jail because he cut a rap album, and that rap album sold more copies because murders were committed. That’s the San Diego D.A.’s story, and he’s stickin’ to it. Read more on Making A Hippity Hop Album Basically Same Thing As Murder…

Stephen Colbert Just Loves Him Some Comic-Con Nerds, Also Rich People (Video)

Thwipp!
We’re going to throw a double dose of Stephen Colbert at you this morning, mostly because we’re just so darned indecisive. So hey, let’s go with TWO clips! First up, a potpourri from last weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, that combination of fandom and media whoring that Colbert sums up as “an orgy… of people who will never be invited to the orgy.” And of course there’s shameless self-and-other promotion: Colbert hosted a panel for the next Peter Jackson movie, The Hobbit: Maybe We Could Have Stretched It Out To Four Movies, and is delighted to hear that Daniel Radcliffe is a fan of Stephen’s ice cream flavor. Excellent Marketingtainment! Read more on Stephen Colbert Just Loves Him Some Comic-Con Nerds, Also Rich People (Video)…

Lady Urging Boycott Of Rose Parade Over Gay Marriage Float Is Naive About Parades

For San Diego’s Karen Grube, watching the Rose Parade on New Year’s Day “used to be a family thing,” but “it no longer is,” and it’s because of the gays. That’s right–there are going to be gays in the 2014 Rose Parade, an annual pageant of crazy costumes, confetti, glitter, dancing, and ostentatious vehicles. And the gays are going to be getting married! On a float sponsored by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation! And the theme of the float is “Love is The Best Protection!” Wow, that is a lot of throat-cramming! Won’t you join Karen Grube’s boycott? You see, there’s a very real possibility that Karen Grube will witness, or learn about, or accidentally imagine gays getting married in the Rose Parade. A very real possibility, people! Read more on Lady Urging Boycott Of Rose Parade Over Gay Marriage Float Is Naive About Parades…

President Of Creation Museum Is Just Like Oppressed Civil Rights Leaders Of 1950s Selma, Obviously

Attention civil rights activists! Your fierce and courageous devotion to fighting against injustice is sorely needed in the horribly oppressive town of San Diego, which has, sadly, turned into 1950s Alabama. No, there are no segregated drinking fountains. No, there have been no lynchings. No, there is no tired lady who would just like to have her seat on the bus, goddamnit. But there is a heinous, oppressive evil afoot, and we are not talking about former Mayor Bob Grabass Filner. We are talking about — trigger warning for atrocious atrocities of atrociousness — this: The president of a museum which teaches that dinosaurs walked the Earth at the same time as humans said this week that San Diego was “like Selma, Alabama in the 1950s” because his ministry was denied a seat on the local museum council. “I’m afraid we are being opposed for nothing more than the old prejudice against God,” [museum President Tom] Cantor lamented. Oh, the humanity! Read more on President Of Creation Museum Is Just Like Oppressed Civil Rights Leaders Of 1950s Selma, Obviously…

Weather Channel Founder Says Polar Bears Doing Great Because Eskimos Stopped Being Savages

In a chat with paid climate change deniers on the San Diego TV station where he now works as a weatherman, Weather Channel founder John Coleman insisted that, contrary to mere evidence, polar bear populations are increasing because “the Eskimos no longer kill the polar bears for the meat and furs in order to stay alive, it’s — we have now become more civilized in our Eskimo populations around the poles.” “Poles” may have been a verbal slip, or maybe he actually thinks polar bears live at both poles. It is not known at press time whether he illustrated his point with a cartoon of an Eskimo and a geographically impossible penguin shaking hands outside an igloo while a polar bear drank a refreshing bottle of Coca-Cola.

Former San Diego Mayor Filner Pleads Guilty To Criminal Horribleness, Aggravated Jerkosity

Serial creepmeister and former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner pleaded guilty yesterday to a single count of felony false imprisonment and two counts of misdemeanor battery. Under the plea deal, he will not go to jail, but will be prevented from ever holding public office again. The Democrat (and former Congressman) resigned in August following a series of sexual harassment accusations brought by pretty much every woman who ever stood within the same zip code with him.

Ann Romney Not Worrying Her Beautiful Mind About Neighbors’ Unhappiness With Grotesque Beach Mansion

In her quest to build a modest 11,000-square-foot cottage not in anyone’s way at all right there on that public beach, Ann Romney is starting to sound a little like America’s most favoritest belovedest totally great lady, one Barbara “gentle murmurs” Bush. Neighbors may be unhappy over the Romneys’ … hmmm … lack of politesse (THE ROMNEYS??? THE FUCK YOU SAY!) in throwing their shitfits at the San Diego City Council for not getting their permits fast enough. But Ann knows in her heart of hearts that other people’s feelings don’t matter at all!

Why Did All Those Racist Ladies Burn Creeper San Diego Mayor Bob Filner’s Body And Hang Him From A Tree?

Disgraced former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner (D – Sadville) should probably not tell people he was “the victim of a lynch mob,” aka the 18 women who came forward to accuse him of being Bob Packwood times an actual rapist.

In San Diego, ‘Jacking It’

San Diego. You are a lovely city of truly blue oceans and white beaches and great urban parks and really terrific schools and generally well-educated and affluent folk going about their very nice lives. You are a really nice place to visit! But apparently, you wouldn’t want to live there, since all your public officials are just constantly either putting rape survivors in headlocks to ask them on “dates,” or stone cold ducking out from City Council meetings to have important jizzing sessions in the men’s room sink.

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner To Resign, Pursue Private Sector Opportunities In Sexual Harassment

As part of a mediation deal in his sexual harassment lawsuit, San Diego’s creepy harassment Mayor Bob Filner is expected to resign Friday. Filner was seen removing boxes from City Hall yesterday and loading them into an SUV, so it appears that he will not have to be escorted from the building by Security. It was not known if he had the boxes’ consent to have his hands all over them. Read more on San Diego Mayor Bob Filner To Resign, Pursue Private Sector Opportunities In Sexual Harassment…

San Diego Gets Own Nuclear Debacle As Fukushima Pees Radiation Into The Sea

San Diego’s San Onofre nuclear plant isn’t melting down. It isn’t leaking huge amounts of radiation (that we know of). Heck, it’s not even generating power! That’s because the steam generators Southern California Edison installed at San Onofre broke down just two years into their expected 20 year service life. They can’t be fixed, of course, and now the whole plant is mothballed, because you don’t want moths eating holes through your ruinous nuclear debacle, that’s just common sense. Basically, Edison screwed up, and Mitsubishi, who built the steam generators, screwed up. A lot of people screwed up! So obviously Edison and Mitsubishi admitted they screwed up, and they made their investors eat their losses, and they didn’t try to pass the cost of their screwups onto consumers, and they didn’t engage in an infantilizing, campaign-style PR blitz of half-truths and misinformation, right?

Creepy San Diego Mayor Only Did Sexual Harassment To All Those Chicks ‘Cause No One Told Him Not To

You know how San Diego Mayor Bob “Dirty Old Man” Filner is, like, the creepiest mayor what ever mayored and sexually harassed three four ALL the women? Well, don’t get your panties in a twist; his lawyer says it’s not his fault! “The city has a legal obligation to provide sexual harassment training to all management level employees,” wrote attorney Harvey Berger in a letter requesting the city pay Filner’s legal bills in defense of the lawsuit filed by his former communications director. […] On the issue of potential damages, Berger wrote, “The city may be strictly liable for any sexual harassment by a supervisor, even if it had no reason to know of it. So, of course, the city should have a strong interest in making certain that Mayor Filner has the resources to defend himself.” Hey, everyone, let’s drop a whole bunch of acid and try to follow that logic!
