No, seriously, no fat chicks, says the President of Botswana,

To drive the point home he pointed to the Assistant Minister of Local Government Botlhogile Tshreletso and said, “I don’t want one like this one. She may fail to pass through the door, breaking furniture with her heavy weight and even break the vehicle’s shock absorbers.”

He’s a former general who has been too wrapped up in his career to marry, but his singleness is becoming a political issue, so he has his presidential aides out looking for a wife for him…yes, really.

And you could make a issue of his douchebagginess, but really, dude’s marrying purely for political reasons, and pretty much makes that known, so I’m not gonna fault him for being douchey and shallow about it.

and

I saw a passing reference to Sonic the Hedgehog’s archnemesis Dr. Robotnik as I was wandering aimlessly through the intarwebs today, which made me start thinking of the old Sonic games I played as a kid, and how much they kicked ass.  I also thought of the level music too, so ended up listening to some of those on youtube.  Noticed a comment on one of the later levels of Sonic 3, along the lines of, X number of people are still stuck on those damn barrels in Carnival Night Zone Act 2.  And I immediately said, AAAARGH!!!!!   Those fucking barrels! Damn glad to see I wasn’t the only one, I must say.  Shit took me like a week of trial, error, and blinding rage to figure out.  Any of you gamer nerds get stuck on the Carnival Night Zone barrels?  A Genesis controller might have been spiked across the living room floor in my grade school days.  Might.

These fucking things…

 

And of course, the level music,

Kinda reminds you of…clowns, doesn’t it?  Hope the San Francisco supervisors know what they’ve gotten into…

Sorry, that was mean, here, have a tattooed girl wearing an R2-D2 swimsuit,

Hmmmm….

Gay men, lesbians and bisexuals who self-identified to exit pollsters made up 3 percent of those casting ballots in House races on Tuesday, and 31 percent of them voted Republican. By itself, that number is amazing, especially when you consider that way too many people think being gay and voting Democratic are one in the same. But that percentage is ominous news for a White House viewed with suspicion by many gay men and lesbians, because that’s four percentage points higher than the change election of 2008.

Again, hmmm…..

This is fucking awesome.

If given a rare and precious gift, more valuable than life itself, how would you react? Would you brag about it? Hide it? Flaunt it? Sell it? Or, would you protect it with everything you had or could ever have? Would you walk through hell with a gas can (as a now Congressman-elect famously said) to protect it and keep it safe and viable for the future? And how far would you go to make sure that your gift is never lost, knowng how difficult it would be to ever regain it or return it to its original luster?

Well, I have been fortunate to have been given such a gift in my life. This gift is my freedom as an American, as defined and protected by the Constitution I have sworn multiple times in my life to defend. This is the freedom to know that the tyranny, oppression, interference, and despair that has gripped far too many people throughout human history will never make it to my homeland. This is the freedom sanctified as the birthright of all Americans, born, naturalized, or yet to come, from the sacrifices of those before us, those in our midst, and those yet to come. And this is the one gift that we all can pass down to those who are mere sparkles in the universe, waiting to come alive. This is the freedom that, while I never took for granted, has been under assault the last two years and threatened. And this is the one gift that I can pass on to my daughter, knowing that if she is free, she can never be tarnished or completely damaged, and that she will always be able to control her own fate.

Well, freedom was under assault. That was, until yesterday. I went out and did what I could to protect it. I voted. I voted to make my voice heard. I voted to let those who wished to imprison my future and myself that they are sorely mistaken. I let the political class know that I will do everyhing legally available to me to make sure they never take that gift from me. And I told those who wish to take my rights and freedoms away that I too would walk through whatever they threw at me to pass that threatened gift down to my daughter, the same daughter to whom I swore the first time I held her that I would never let her down, so that she would be able to live as free as I could. That is what I did yesterday. I finished the race. I fought the good fight, knowing that a new fight, one that could potentially throw statism into the sea, will be coming in a few months.

And I told, in no uncertain terms, those who wish to harm my family, my future, and my freedom the following:
