The Weblog Of Choice For Terrorists, Dictators And Rogue Regimes

Hitting The Bottom and Bouncing With Flat Rate Shipping It's hard to believe that Metrospy is not a slick and subtle parody from the Left, like but for merchandise. But sadly, the company that asks its customers to "Display Their Conservatism Proudly" looks legit, even down to the smugly offered John Kerry urinal targets and the "Give War A Chance" bumper stickers. I will never call a crusty punk wearing a "Keep Warm, Burn The Rich" t-shirt ridiculous ever again.

Ain't Karma A Bitch, Banchote An Indian man facing 24 counts of molestation and rape was murdered in a Nagpur court by a group of women and children who quickly fled the scene.

And By "Making A Major Bust" We Mean "Shutting Down A Major Source Of Information" Wow, our administration has been dropping names like an indie-rock hipster in a Williamsburg bar. Remember the major capture of an al-Qaeda agent last week? The one that Tommy Ridge used to raise the Chicken Little Alert to orange? The one that was conveniently used to muzzle the afterglow of the DNC? The one that revealed stale four year-old information that somehow translated into a "specific threat"? Well, in addition to creating baseless hysteria, US officials also released the named of the captured al-Qaeda agent to reporters and thereby cockblocked a major sting operation Pakistan was conducting to track down terrorists around the world. Good one dudes.

That's Cool. I Just Won't Be Around Homes, Cars Or Food. From the UK's Guardian, "The numbers of sufferers of brain diseases, including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and motor neurone disease, have soared across the West in less than 20 years, scientists have discovered. The alarming rise, which includes figures showing rates of dementia have trebled in men, has been linked to rises in levels of pesticides, industrial effluents, domestic waste, car exhausts and other pollutants, says a report in the journal Public Health. In the late 1970s, there were around 3,000 deaths a year from these conditions in England and Wales. By the late 1990s, there were 10,000. "

Blackmail And The Gay Male Another weird turn developed in the scandals surrounding New Jersey governor James McGreevey. It seems that the Israeli man who accused the governor of sexual harassment tried to get a $50 million cash settlement and approval for development plans for a private medical college in the state before McGreevey went public on Thursday. And in the typical restained GOP style, NJ Republicans called on McGreevey to resign immediately mostly due to their morally pure and principled outrage that the Democratic State Senate President would finish out the governor's term.
P.S. Isn't calling the governor of New Jersey "one of the most powerful politicians in the country" about as ridiculous as calling Coolio "a towering juggernaunt in the realm of popular music"?

As Matthew 5:38 Said, "Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. But if some punk-ass starts sparkin' up your church, you best be packing bitch."
