Random hits

Michele Bachmann, her campaign on the skids, goes for that ever-huge vaccine conspiracy vote as she pines for the days when the majority of graves in the cemetery were less than four feet long:

Meanwhile, former Afghani President Rabbani killed by a mad hatter. And Elizabeth Warren explains the facts of life to the ungrateful rich who want to use the roads that all of us pay for, who want to use the police forces that all of us pay for, but don't want to themselves contribute their fair share towards them. A Louisiana Republican by the name of John Fleming is fighting against taxes on the rich because he says he's barely making it on his $600K/year income, pointing out that he spends $200k/year on food alone, while Louisiana's median family income is $42,460/year. Hmm, a bit detached from the lifestyle of his constituency, eh? And the Family Research Council gets upset with Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream's latest ice cream flavor. I'll have some salty nuts with my schweddy balls, thank you very much.

In cat news, a cat actually used a cat bed for its intended purpose, and another cat reminds us there's a nap for that.

And that is all for tonight. G'nite :).

  1. At least Ben and Jerry's didn't call the new flavor, 'Dingle Berry'!

  2. B&J would have had to put the above photo of Michele Bachmann onto a container of Dingle Berry ice cream, methinks. Oh wait, no, that's Dingbat Ice Cream. My bad ;).

  3. Damn Tux! Your rundown had more nuts than a California almond farm. And unlike the almonds they all leave a bad taste in the mouth.

  4. John Fleming is fighting against taxes on the rich because he says he's barely making it on his $600K/year income,

    Hum, I do pretty well on less than 12K a year, maybe others are doing something wrong.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts.
