Rant of the year: Wall Street’s never had it better

Be warned: This dude drops a lot of F bombs, so it might not be safe for work:

Republicans side with defense contractors over raped women

Read more at the Huffington Post, including Jon Stewart’s take on the controversy. Update: Looks like a Democrat might get in the game of protecting rapists at defense contractors:

Just cut to commercial

Couldn’t Meredith Vieira have stopped the segment while the kid was retching?

WTF Kanye?

Seriously? I’m not a Taylor Swift fan or anything, but that interrupting her speech like that was just rude. If it had been a dude Kanye interrupted instead of Micro Machine sized Taylor Swift, he probably would have been clocked… and would have deserved it too.

Obama’s health care speech

I haven’t had a chance to listen to or read Obama’s speech to Congress on health care reform last night. When I do, I’ll let you know my thoughts. In the mean time, you can watch the entire speech here (or read the transcript): The NY Times also has a cool interactive video/transcript which makes […]

To have a liberal political party

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a liberal political party? How about one, that unlike the Democrats, supported ending our two wars. Or one that wasn’t trying to sabotage efforts at creating a universal health care system? On that point, here is an excellent video rant by Bill Maher (h/t Chris Dierkes): For those of […]

From McClatchy: A former senior U.S. intelligence official familiar with the interrogation issue said that Cheney and former Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld demanded that intelligence agencies and interrogators […]

FedEx plane crashes landing in Japan

Holy crap: The two American crew members operating the plane were killed. So far the best guess is that wind gusts caused the accident. Thankfully this wasn’t a passenger plane, because I doubt anyone would have survived that fireball.

Mental health break: Kudos to Obama & shoe throwers

Obama has been doing some good stuff these last couple of days. He’s ordered Gitmo closed as well as the CIA’s semi-secret “black sites”. He’s overturned an executive order by Bush that would have prevented many of the Bush era documents from being released publicly, it also limits himself and future Presidents from putting those […]
