Have You Ever Noticed That Ladies Are So Dumb And Stupid? The Washington DC Metro Has!

Hey bitchez. Whatcha doin’? Being stupid bitches? That sounds about right. Here, for instance, is a documentary prepared by some cool guy at whoever does the in-house documentaries for the DC Metro public transportation system, which everyone loves very much, and it is all about how their buses only break down every 8,000 miles, so give them a medal please. Also it is about ladies, and how they are so dumb. Read more on Have You Ever Noticed That Ladies Are So Dumb And Stupid? The Washington DC Metro Has!…

Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn Defends Sacred Right To Buy Cheap Shoes, Crappy Insurance

Tennessee congressjerk Marsha Blackburn doesn’t hold with an oppressive federal government meddling in people’s choices — unless of course it involves sluts who want contraception or abortions, duh — and she gave HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius a piece of her mind about it at Wednesday’s Yell-At-Obamacare hearing in the House, pointing out that maybe Americans like their crappy cheap insurance that doesn’t actually cover anything: “Some people like to drive a Ford, not a Ferrari … And some people like to drink out of a red Solo cup, not a crystal stem. You’re taking away their choice.” Of course, a lot of the plans that are being canceled by insurance companies are the equivalent of a Yugo with a cracked block and four flat tires. The Affordable Care Act simply says that insurers can’t continue to sell go-carts and claim they’re OK to drive on the freeway. (Analogies are fun!) Read more on Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn Defends Sacred Right To Buy Cheap Shoes, Crappy Insurance…

Here Is Your Heartwarming 2012 ‘Throw A Poor Family Out In The Snow’ Christmas Miracle, America!

Just in case you were feeling hopeful about humanity or anything, we thought we’d nip that right in the bud. Yep, it looks like the Iconic Christmas Story for 2012 has arrived! In Grand Junction, Colorado, a single mother and her three children are going to be evicted from their apartment just in time for Christmas, because the woman’s son shoplifted a pair of shoes, and the apartment complex’s “zero tolerance” lease agreement states that “any criminal activity on or near the premises is grounds for immediate eviction.” Read more on Here Is Your Heartwarming 2012 ‘Throw A Poor Family Out In The Snow’ Christmas Miracle, America!…

Huffington Post Girl Reporter: Michele Bachmann Is A-OK, Except For Ugly Shoes

Important AOL spam site “The Huffington Post” has a Fashion Reporter! She likes to report on girly things like fashion. But sometimes when you let ladies post things on the Internet without a professional man checking them first, the Fashion Reporter might tackle a political subject, like this: Read more on Huffington Post Girl Reporter: Michele Bachmann Is A-OK, Except For Ugly Shoes…

DC Men’s Shoes For Clowns and Elves, Not Men

A very kind, smart, attractive young woman I know took grave exception with my denunciation of those medallion shoes all the District’s WASPy women seem to fancy. While willing to admit that perhaps they were, indeed, crap shoes, she was angry that I’d not leveled a similar attack on the preferred footwear of DC men. I’d never particularly noticed the footwear of DC men, but she was right! Read more on DC Men’s Shoes For Clowns and Elves, Not Men…

Shoe Pervert Rick Perry Collects Hot Pixxx Of Your Footwear On The Internet

Rick Perry, the most foul hair-monster of a governor since Rod Blagojevich, has amassed a small collection of sexy shoe-fetish photographs on his Flickr site. The name of the collection? “Kicks for Rick,” of course, showcasing exactly how Rick gets his kicks. Next fall, will Texans want to re-elect, for the billionth time, a known shoe molester?

Did Barack Obama Get His Shoes Fixed?

Remember when poor street hustler Barack Obama had big old holes in the soles of his Florsheim salesman shoes? Here’s a new arty sex photo by White House pornographer Pete Souza, and the shoe soles maybe have holes, still? Or are the shoes just blurry to fuck with your minds? Or, is America finally officially bankrupt, a terrible The Road hellscape where even the rich young president staggers through life with hobo shoes? (Also, note how he is on the phone with Benjamin Netanyahu, and making the “Bibi’s got a little bitty dick” hand signal.”) [White House Flickr] Read more on Did Barack Obama Get His Shoes Fixed?…

A Children’s Treasury Of Shoe-Throwing Games

Before the dawn of the Internet, people used to waste time the old-fashioned way: by playing solitaire on their shitty Windows 3.1 machines. Then Doom and Quake and The Sims and Spore came along, and time-wasting evolved into a very sophisticated and complicated activity that required thousands of dollars of expensive electronics to perform correctly. Thanks to the dude who threw a shoe at George W. Bush, the Internet has seen a flowering of incredibly simple and mindless games that would have been amazing and cutting-edge in 1996.

Shoe-Hurling Iraqi Hero’s Show Trial Set For December 31

A very brave man once stood up in a press conference and took off his shoes one at a time and threw them at the President of America, who nimbly ducked because he still has the reflexes of a regular cocaine user. This shoe-throwing fellow was promptly taken to an Iraqi jail, where he was probably beaten, and now he will be tried for, let’s see, “aggression against a foreign head of state” on the very last day of the year. Translation: Muntadar al-Zaidi will be locked in a coffin of live rats and shipped to Dick Cheney’s basement at the Naval Observatory, where the Vice President will spend his New Year’s Eve skinning and stuffing the hapless Iraqi, who will become the latest addition to his growing collection of large mammal specimens.

George Bush Vs. The Shoes

By the Comics CurmudgeonHey, everybody, did you hear about what happened in Iraq this week? Obviously, I’m not talking about the carnage and the death, because the “surge” is “working” and the daily levels of terrible violence there have subsided to a point that is only a dozen times worse than anything any American civilian has ever experienced, instead of a million times worse. No, I’m talking about that Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at our beloved lame duck president! Read more on George Bush Vs. The Shoes…

Best Leftist Protest Idea Ever: Throw Shoes At Dana Milbank

The Code Pink liberals held their “throw shoes at Bush” reenactment yesterday, yay. A small but dedicated crowd went and threw shoes at a plaster Bush zombie. But then something far worse appeared, from the “neo-liberal” Washington Post newspaper: DANA MILBANK, with a cameraman, reporting on the fun for his next grating “local color” column. It’s hard to express how smug Dana Milbank is in this video, even by his standards. Don’t torture yourself! Just skip to the end when the Pinks start throwing shoes at Milbank instead, until he starts whining.

Meanwhile, Barack Obama Walks Holes In His Shoes, Then Re-Soles Them

Alaskan anger bear Sarah Palin is such a real pro-America American that her klan rally outfits cost $150,000 — to go with her $4,000 haircuts. And she didn’t even pay for this fortune of couture herself, as she depends on the government and the RNC for such corporate welfare. Barack Obama, on the other hand, is a salt-of-the-earth true human who humbly campaigns by foot across the real real America, in these shoes, which he wears down to nothing and then get resoled like a good hard-working Depression era young man with big dreams and humble means.

Dear John,

Can we talk? I mean, I’m sure you’re busy with the campaign and the rumors and the cancer-stricken wife and the kids and stuff, but this is a little ridick, ok? You’re in Iowa, there’s snow on the ground and it’s obviously fucking cold. I know that there’s some boys handbook in campaigns that says you can’t look manly and wear a coat, but you look a little ridiculous not, frankly. Go get yourself one of those nice tailored cashmere overcoats (or one in black and another in camel, if you insist on matching), they’re soft, you’ll look dashing and you won’t look like some high school kid who won’t wear a coat because he doesn’t want to look uncool.

Hillary, Can We Talk?

The first thing I thought upon seeing this photo was that I loved the shoes. I mean, I expected Hillary to wear semi-sexless old lady shoes, in the same way that she seems to always be sporting the semi-sexless pantsuits with the too-long jackets to cover every square inch of her ass and with no nips anywhere to give her any kind of curves. The second thing I thought was about the powerful statement made by a picture of Bill at Hill’s feet, and whether that was a powerful feminist thing or a total dig on the power dynamics in their relationship, but then I got back to the shoes. And then, I saw them in context. Read more on Hillary, Can We Talk?…
