Elect the conservative rat king

So, Michelle Bachman, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum are vying for the Republican nomination for the next presidential election.

I say the candidates' tails should be tied together and that the whole rat king run as one privatizing, tax-cutting, Shariah-law-hating entity.

Why not?

Each has their own unique vision for destroying America. Nominate only one of these malignant geniuses and you risk losing six other not-so-beautiful minds that bring their own personal, hellish vision for the country.

Also, each is rather pathetic on their own (aside from the ballsy Ron Paul), but the cancerous whole would at least have a the morbid appeal of a carnival freak on the campaign trail.

The only consolation about the U.S. being systematically disassembled by the rich and powerful is that this woeful gaggle of twits is the best their money can buy.

At least, in one respect, the Koch Brothers, et al, have been ripped off.

Bentley's signing of a law that surpasses Arizona's SB 1070, with provisions affecting law enforcement, transportation, apartment rentals, employment and education.

"The new law, combined with legislation passed in May by neighboring Georgia, has arguably made this swath of the Deep South the nation's hottest immigration battleground, with the region's troubled racial history fueling the fire."

A new high in low of airline advertising

Was Spirit Airlines hacked by a disgruntled employee or were its advertising copy writers given the task of dusting off all those old, schoolyard boner jokes for this new campaign that is clearly aimed at those living the "life of the mind"?

Spirit Airlines is clearly not only about low costs, but also the lowest common denominator.

Turns out, the airline wasn't hacked. They thought up this embarrassingly stupid campaign all on their own, with no help from a malicious hacker.

Death of Beached Whale Ignites Cries for More Training

After Reggie the Sperm Whale tragically died on Redcar beach in northern England today, environmentalists announced they would undertake a training program to teach beached whales how to roll back to the water.

Hundreds of curious onlookers flocked to the beach to see the stranded 40 foot long whale. Local fire and rescue personnel plied Reggie with water, as resident logistical experts struggled to formulate a plan for returning the whale to the North Sea.
