I woke up with a sinus headache this morning, so until it goes away this is all you’re getting.
Britain no longer wants to be ‘America’s poodle’ – But — but… after all the cute little collars and everything we bought you! The ingratitude… Seriously, with all the bitching and moaning we’ve gotten from across the pond, I’m beginning to kind of wish Tony Blair hadn’t supported us in the whole Afghanistan/Iraq venture either.
I haven’t said anything about the Ann Coulter fracas in Canada because, well, I haven’t said much of anything about anything lately — but when you scroll way down on Kathy’s blog to this entry you will find the following hilarious quote, which I will requote:
“I was just worried that things were going to be said about certain groups of people that were going to make them feel very unsafe and very uncomfortable and we promise our students here at the University of Ottawa a safe, positive space,” said Rita Valeriano, a second-year sociology and women’s studies student.
Considering what fragile, delicate flowers Canadian university students apparently are, this scenario came to mind: (Female student activist to reporter) “I just want my safe space!” she screamed, body slamming the reporter into the corridor wall, “Ann Coulter makes me feel very uncomfortable!” Then she broke the reporter’s camera over his head.
Have you read about the way Obama has been treating non-Muslim world leaders lately? The Dalai Lama scooted out the back door past the garbage bags, Israel’s Netanyahu given the Mean Girls treatment… what is this, high school? Oh right, never mind.
I rarely read the pro-news media, preferring to get my news pre-filtered by my (f)rightwing lords and masters via their blogs, but I’m bored so here’s something important off one of Fox News’ offshoots: healthy chocolate cupcakes! What’s the main ingredient? Canned, sliced beets — the scourge of my childhood. What, they couldn’t be bothered to at least use fresh beets, which are marginally less disgusting and probably a lot healthier? Recipe fail.
Added later: “Dozens of people!” showed up to the Tea Party rally in Searchlight, Nevada, CNN claims. Thank god for the professional news media. How would we know anything without them?
