The End of Ann Coulter: The World Cup Rant That No One Cares About

By June 27, 2014

The truth is, no one really gives a shit what Coulter says about anything these days as her schtick is about as original as Britney Spear’s latest album. Most major outlets don’t pay her any attention as her toxic brand of xenophobia and liberal baiting stopped being amusing at least half a decade ago.

We say we want all this transparency so that real change will come, but so far, at this point in our societal evolution, we’re at that disheartening stage where more transparency is just showing us exactly how screwed the system really is and it’s messing a lot of people up.

Stop Saying, “America is Less Safe” Because Of Obama. It’s a Meaningless Phrase.

By June 05, 2014

Isn’t it horribly ironic that those who say Obama’s foreign policy prerogatives are making America less safe tend to be the same people who back policies that have measurably weakened national security?

I’ve been a fan of yours since I was watching Fresh Prince reruns before school on TBS. Every time my mom and I went to SYMS to buy a blazer, I begged for one with a fun inner lining so that I could wear it inside-out like you. And when the time came for you to be a father, I was ready to give Jaden a chance…

Joe The Plumber Now Inciting Murder Of Politicians

By May 31, 2014

It appears that not-Joe the non-Plumber is refusing our kind offer of ice cold, frost-brewed Shut The Fuck Up. In a followup to his sickening “open letter” to the families of those gunned down by UCSB mass killer Elliot Rodger, Samuel “Joe the Plumber” Wurzelbacher explains on his blog that our military veterans died so that he could tell his readers what guns are really for: “mostly for hunting down politicians who would actively seek to take your freedoms and liberty away from you.”

Can We Please Stop Blindly Glamorizing The Military? It’s Giving Would-Be Soldiers The Wrong Idea

By May 29, 2014

“Now don’t get me wrong, as another comedian, Michael Birbiglia, once put it, ‘I love the troops. Because if they weren’t the troops, I would be the troops. And I would be the worst troops. I’d be like, ‘You expect me to carry a gun this heavy and run away screaming?’.”

Imagine the hallucinatory insanity. Imagine what a Lynchian Star Wars would look like. That’s precisely what a YouTube user who goes by the name “C-SPIT” did, and the trailer he cut out of the original Jedi material now gives us a glimpse of the nightmare galaxy far, far away that never was.

The Newest Argument Against Same-Sex Marriage is the Most Pathetic One Of All

By May 15, 2014

All of the arguments that opponents of gay marriage have put forth have been knocked down one by one — revealed as the bullshit they are. But there’s one last card to play, and it’s a total joke.

Write Turn

Time to just come out and admit it: my workload is such these days that it’s almost impossible to keep posting new material here. I can’t really apologize for that anymore, simply because it’s not as if I’ve stopped writing altogether — it’s just that I’ve moved damn-near permanently at this point.

And so, rather than keep a two-month old video clip up as the first thing stragglers see when they inadvertently wander in here, I think it’s probably a good idea to at least point people in the direction of my new office. (I won’t call it home, because while it may be neglected right now, this place is still home to me.)

When I have something personal to say, I promise I’ll return here, but for now if you’re looking for my wit, charm and generally worthless opinions, you can head over to The Daily Banter.

By May 12, 2014

There were some people who expressed sentiments along the lines of, “Being gay is fine but little kids don’t need to see that on TV.” Or as one person put it, “ESPN showing Michael Sam being drafted & his reaction is great & all but showing him kissing his boyfriend on national tv is a bit too far.”

Sarah Palin Condescendingly Hopes Grandmahood Will ‘Open Hillary Clinton’s Eyes’ About Abortion

By May 09, 2014

“I know this is going to be controversial,” she says of her statements. Or not controversial enough given conservatives’ widespread appallingly sexist reaction to the announcement of Chelsea Clinton’s pregnancy.
