"“The Christian in me says it'’s wrong, but the corrections officer in me says, '’I love to make a grown man piss himself.'"”

And Will Those Who Raise $1,000,000 Become "Power Rangers?" The Bush money machine has used the honorary titles of Pioneers (for raising $100,000) and Rangers (for raising $200,000) to whip their fundraisers into a competitive, sycophantic frenzy and add more bank to their Godzilla of a warchest. Now, "those Rangers able to generate another $250,000 could become Super Rangers, the cream of the cream of Republican cash cows." SUPER-RANGERS?! When the fuck did all of the grown-ups leave the government?

Consider It Foreplay To The Gigantic E-Fucking We'll Get In November

Pictures of Starving Children Sell Records Move over Chumbawamba! Madonna is out to take your sarcastic parody seriously. For her new "Re-Invention" tour Madonna plans to cover the song "Imagine" and "during her cover of the John Lennon classic, she will break down in tears in front of pictures of starving children. Fans will see the star being "frazzled" in an electric chair, and images of people killed in Iraq will be shown on a huge video screen." All for $300 a seat.

Fuck Off. They Were Terrorist Kangaroos. The Israeli military won't let the Palestinians in Gaza even have a children's zoo. Extra points for the Israeli "Jedi-Mind Fuck" style of PR. On CNN last week I heard an Israeli minister deny that the corpses of Palestinians killed by a rocket were real; "They could have been planted by Hamas..."
Amid the rubble of dozens of homes that the Israeli army continued yesterday to deny demolishing, the wrecking of the tiny, but only, zoo in the Gaza Strip took on potent symbolism for many of the newly homeless. The butchered ostrich, the petrified kangaroo cowering in a basement corner, the tortoises crushed under the tank treads - all were held up as evidence of the pitiless nature of the Israeli occupation. The military says the houses were wrecked by Palestinian bombs planted to attack Israeli forces, or accidentally by tanks turning in the street.

Well, What Do You Expect From People That Hate Freedom So Much Michael Moore's new film "Fahrenheit 9-11" has won the illustrious Palme d'Or award at the Cannes film festival, the first documentary to do so since 1956. This NY Times piece details Moore's new film, filmed with rare and unseen footage of American casualties in Iraq and Bush reading "My Pet Goat" for seven minutes after learning about the attack on the WTC.

The GOP vs. The G-String Divas
"Fearful that conservatives might turn off the colored lights for good, a trade organization for adult nightclubs is asking owners to register customers and employees and then encourage them to cast their ballots against the president. Micheal Ocello, president of the Association of Club Executives, said the group believes the president's brand of conservatism is bad for business."
