The best news I’ve read all day

Good one in the Times about how the Godidiots got their asses reamed in the election. It’s basically an overview of how the American Taliban is in decline, but for me, the money quote, the one that says it all (and in their braindead moral absolutism, they will not learn from) is:

“It’s that the entire moral landscape has changed,” he said. “An increasingly secularized America understands our positions, and has rejected them.”

That won’t stop ‘em from trying, of course, but it’s nice to read, regardless.

Nobody better tell the GOP about this one

If they get wind of this, undoubtedly some GOP hick state is gonna try to pass it, as well. Fits in with that whole “war on women” thing they’ve been doing since, well, forever.

Egypt’s National Council for Women (NCW) has appealed to the Islamist-dominated parliament not to approve two controversial laws on the minimum age of marriage and allowing a husband to have sex with his dead wife within six hours of her death according to a report in an Egyptian newspaper.

I guess it’s six hours because it gets pretty cold after that. Who knows? But hey, it’s okay because:

Zamzami Abdul Bari said that marriage remains valid even after death adding that a woman also too had the same right to engage in sex with her dead husband.

Considering the, uh, lack of blood flow, I don’t know how that’s possible, but we’re talking radical Islam here. Like their American Christianist counterparts, logic is not one of their strong points.

Yeah, that’ll work. Mmm-hmm.

Apparently there’s a big heatwave scorching the nether-regions of the nation right now. Oklahoma, which seems to be the state with god as the solution to everything has come up with yet another sure-fire winner as to how to end the drought:

CBS News correspondent Cynthia Bowers reports that it’s been so hot for so long in Oklahoma, the governor called for a statewide day of prayer in hope of some divine intervention

“I think if we have a lot of people praying, it moves the heart of God,” Gov. Mary Fallin says.

I’m wondering if it moves the bowels of god. or perhaps just the earwax of god. It hasn’t really dawned on these dunces yet that most of the worst weather that we’ve seen this past year happens in the most religious parts of the nation. Perhaps he’s telling them to stop asking them to be such dumbasses all of the time. It’s really embarrassing to have to share the nation with people that think like this.

Thanks, teabaggers!

This is what they’ve given us… this guy’s seeking the Energy and Commerce Committee chairmanship. Listen to the whole thing, painful as it is.

Bonus comment from the Youtube commenter Syrinx69: “I think I’ll run for Senate so I can read from The Silmarillon.”

Indeed.

Dumb All Over: David Barton

Godidiot and Glenn Beck favorite David Barton asks:

“Why don’t we regulate homosexuality?”…
So if I got to the Centers for Disease Control and I’m concerned about health, I find some interesting stats there and this should tell me something about health.

Homosexual/bi-sexual individuals are seven times more likely to contemplate or commit suicide. Oooh, that doesn’t sound very healthy.

Homosexuals die decades earlier than heterosexuals. That doesn’t sound healthy.

Nearly one-half of practicing homosexuals admit to 500 or more sex partners and nearly one-third admit to a thousand or more sex partners in a lifetime. I mean, you go through all this stuff, sounds to me like that’s not very healthy. Why don’t we regulate homosexuality?”

500 or more? 1000 or more? Jeezus, I’ve been batting for the wrong team, as there’s apparently a lot more action on the other one.

Evangelicals are more likely to believe batshit insane things that have no basis in reality whatsoever.

Evangelicals are more likely to prescribe to outdated notions of patriarchal behavior.

Evangelicals are more likely to have their men keeping their gay proclivities in the closet, which doesn’t sound too healthy.

Many evangelicals believe the earth is only 5,000 years old. Some of them believe the earth is 10,000 years old. I mean, you go through all this stuff, sounds to me like that’s not very healthy. Or smart. Why don’t we regulate evangelical behavior?

Dumb All Over: Christine O’Donnell

Beyond Palin-stupid, even.

O’DONNELL: A lie, whether it be a lie or an exaggeration, is disrespect to whoever you’re exaggerating or lying to, because it’s not respecting reality.

MAHER: Quite the opposite, it can be respect.

IZZARD: What if someone comes to you in the middle of the Second World War and says, ‘do you have any Jewish people in your house?’ and you do have them. That would be a lie. That would be disrespectful to Hitler.

O’DONNELL: I believe if I were in that situation, God would provide a way to do the right thing righteously. I believe that!

MAHER: God is not there. Hitler’s there and you’re there.

O’DONNELL: You never have to practice deception. God always provides a way out.

Yes, God most certainly provided a “way out” for those Jews, didn’t he, Christine?

She’s Right (for the first time)

Well, then… one of those “when-hell-freezes-over-and-monkeys-fly-out-of-my-butt” moments.

‘Twas an honor and a privilege, lemme tells ya’.

She did fail to share one thing with y’all, though…that she was listening to Rush Limpballs and she said he “sounded like an idiot”. Apparently, her hearing is starting to work again, as well.
They do say a stopped clock is still right twice a day, ya’ know…
