So we can all go see this together.

By the way, this is a red band trailer.  That means you just might not want to watch this in front of the kiddos.  How they’re going to make a green trailer for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is beyond me, though.

That happened.

In the really real world.

He didn’t ‘adopt a wide stance’ or ‘flirt.’ He sent a picture of his (underwear-covered) swollen man-piston to a college student (edited: not a porn star, he just followed a porn star in addition to the 21 year old college student he sent a picture of his cock to. I’m an idiot but that’s not news). On Twitter. Not only is he almost certainly retarded, but a philandering poon-monger.

Why is this important? Because he’s one of the ‘rising stars’ of the Democratic party and this story has almost been completely unreported. Well, here I am, doing my part. The man is guilty guilty guilty and nobody seems to care. Well, let’s give them an impression of their response had Rep. Ryan been caught sending a photo of his dick to a Twitter slut.

If we can’t get him to resign, let’s at least utterly and irrevocably destroy his career Client #9 style.

Update: I’m restudying the events and became less than confident in my headline so I have rolled it back to what I’m certain of.

Wherein Veeshir Commits Heresy

I’m all fer this. I’m so “for” it I’m actually wondering if I should donate money to the cause.

The fate of the annual July 4 fireworks show at La Jolla Cove was in question Friday after a judge affirmed her previous ruling that the city is bound by state environmental laws when issuing permits for pyrotechnic displays.

They have to spend a brazillion dollars on an “environmental impact” study each and every time. You know they can’t just say, “Here’s our fireworks manifest, they blow up and release some CO2, then some very biodegradable paper floats down and biodegrades“. You know each time they’ll have to study the ecosphere, how the extra-CO2  impacts the darter seal, whether the paper can get stuck in yellow-bellied-mouth bass’ gills and if the “boom” scares big-eared salamnders.

This win will also set a nice precedent so look for various eco-wackos to file a slew of these all across California. If they want maximum disruption, they should file the suits on 4/1 and demand an injunction. By the time the dust settles, it’ll be long after July 4 so no fireworks. The only people who like them are wingnuts and teabaggers anyway.

You Californians crapped all over your bed, now sleep in it and don’t come whining to me.

Idiocy used to be at least painful and often fatal, we’ve created a nation powerful enough so it doesn’t even hurt. Hell, other people’s idiocy is painful to you. If people use your product improperly and hurt themselves, it’s your fault.

The pendulum is finally swinging back.  Extreme stupidity is starting to be painful again as we’ve gone way too far along the “Rights with no responsibilities” route for even 21st century America to overcome.

H/T Martha MacCallum, who is way hotter than Megyn Kelly. As ATC put it in relation to the difference between Shep and Megyn, intelligence is way hotter. Megyn is an OUTRAGE!!!! monger who is only different from Shep in that she’s generally a righty and a lot hotter (I don’t do bi-partisanship).

Martha is the closest to being a journalist since Brit Hume semi-retired. The only reason I can’t be more definite is because I don’t watch her enough.

Megyn’s finest moment was when she was OUTRAGED!!!! about a strip club who wanted the pregnant bartender to take a few months off. You know, right after FoxNews did the same to her and for a few months before they only showed her from the tits up.

I’m not arguing the editorial decision on that, I’m noting how hilarious her OUTRAGE!!! was.

Since the intertubes has a decided lack of Martha’s tits here’s what made puberty so much fun for me.

Nothing can go wrong with this

Alaska Airlines is swapping out paper flight manuals for iPads.  I’m absolutely certain that there will never be a situation where a flight manual is needed but the iPad has been stolen, or hacked, or that damned proprietary charger can’t be found.

The Brain Trust over at DailyKos has determined that The NYT (yes, really) has an agenda of “perpetuating the psuedo-conflicts of the rightwing so no one notices the economic warfare being waged on 99 Percent of the country.”

All because they mentioned Andrew Breitbart in an article about Weinergate without bitching about him. Breitbart, that is.

These people really exist. They actually believe that ABCBSNBCNNYT etc. are actually nothing more than a bunch of corporatist reichwing shills. For real. I was actually friends with a bunch of them back in college, and there were somehow no fistfights.

Just a little something to reflect my mood
