  1. Well, maybe they have a point about Sotomayor. She went to Princeton and Yale. Those schools don’t have the reputation of Liberty University, now do they?

  2. The LA Times has it wrong. The Repugs now have a call in campaign going that Sotomayor is a racist and causes White Man’s Anger(TM). Apparently they believe that the only problem with the William Ayres tactic in the last election was that there wasn’t enough of it.

  3. On a side note, Wonkette is directly responsible for my cholesterol increasing. Since you’ve been running those vegetarian ads in the side bar with photos of steaks and hamburgers, that’s all I’ve been craving. I was nearly a vegetarian and now…beef, it’s what’s for dinner. Thanks, folks!

  4. Oh, I wish I was a Sotomayor wiener!
    That is what I truly long to beeeeee!
    ’cause if I was a Sotomayor wiener!
    Everyone would be in love with meeee!

  5. The cost of healthcare for profit is a “fetter” that brings “disorder into the whole of bourgeois society,” and endangers “the existence of bourgeois property.” Maybe Superman can “burst asunder” these fetters?

  7. Should be a good move for AOL, and it comes at the right time. Should be easy to branch out into the broader world as well. Laying cable in places like Lahore, Kandahar, Mogudishu and Baconton, GA should be easy what with the many craters in the streets. Plus the browns won’t know the difference between dial-up and cable, so all those 28K modems sitting in dry dock will be blessed with new life!

  8. Yale Law is ranked number one by US News. SMU, where Harriet Miers got her law degree, is forty-sixth, so that makes it 46 times better! Not qualified. Suck on that, liberal media.

  10. There was another headline that caught my attention from the LA Times piece.

    “Bitterness as mental illness?
    Bitter behavior is so common and deeply destructive that some psychiatrists are urging it be identified as a mental illness under the name post-traumatic embitterment disorder.”

    It’s confirmed. The Bitters are mentally ill.

  11. [re=326146]ManchuCandidate[/re]: You forgot Courvoisier V.S.O.P Special Reserve. Kim is supposedly the company’s single biggest consumer in the entire world. Good thing he now has an atomic bomb, huh?

  12. The last thing the world needs is Israel unleashing hell on N. Korea and it’s Middle East arms customers. I thought Christopher whatzisname got all kinds of agreements from Kim Jong Elvis before W left office. What the fuck happened here?

  13. Let’s call that single banking agency the Cheka and imbue it with the power to extraordinarily render criminal bankers so they can be waterboarded 200 times or whatever, their families stripped of social standing and privileges and, after confessing to their crimes, executed. Afterwards, their families will be billed for the costs of the interrogation and bullet. Tough crimes call for tough measures in the coming class war.

  14. [re=326152]Come here a minute[/re]:

    After seeing your post here, I looked up Liberty University. They only accept around 93% percent of their applications. Getting more selective all the time.

  15. [re=326194]Terry[/re]: Yeah, but I bet Regent Law School only admits ~88% of applicants. The competition must be fucking cutthroat.

  16. [re=326194]Terry[/re]:
    [re=326205]hobospacejunkie[/re]:
    Among those that know words and shit.

    Not many colleges like people to sign with an X.

  17. [re=326194]Terry[/re]: [re=326205]hobospacejunkie[/re]: Basically, if you fill out your application in all-caps and with exclamtion points there is no way they can turn you down.

  18. Bring it on, old white male GOP senators! Show the latinos and the women your disrespect for one of theirs (put on the bench by GB the first). How many of you went to Princeton and/or Yale without being a legacy and also got a law degree from one of those schools? It will be a fun, fun summer watching the GOP dig their hole deeper and deeper.

  19. ok, just so we keep things in perspective – the US is the world’s largest arms dealer, we gave the bomb and technical advice to Britain, France and Israel (just off the top of my head), we have more nuclear weapons than are needed for deterrence, have a three part nuclear force, any segment of which can destroy the world many times over,the most accurate delivery systems in the world and have supported fascist and totalitarian governments when it suited us for 65 years.

    Do I think North Korea should have nuclear weapons? No, of course not. But face it – if it wasn’t for our “ally”, Pakistan, they wouldn’t have them. And A.Q. Khan?? The Pakistani that “rougueishly” sold state secrets to totalitarian enemies of the US? Not even under “house arrest” in his mansion any more – but of course, the Qu’ran doesn’t say anything about non-proliferation, so, it’s cool…

    PS – don’t forget to send Pakistan another multi billion dollar bribe – oops, aid check.

  20. Actually, N. Korea does have other ways of making money. They counterfeit $100 bills; they smuggle drugs; they control the organized crime pachinko parlors in Tokyo!

  21. Gee, just think, if all you liberal worthless “give it all away” morons ever left the USA, and moved to North Korea, you could all take turns kissing “The dear leader’s ass.” You people will not be happy until we become a Socialist Nation, all make $300 per month, and drive Schwinn’s. Maybe we should all dress alike too. You liberals are a joke, and shame this nation. What have you done for it lately????
