Guess you’ve seen by now where racist
eugenics evolutionary shit-for-brains professor shit-for-brains Satoshi Kanazawa has all but decreed that we conservatives and/or Christians ain’t too ed-yoo-ma-ka-ted.
Political, religious and sexual behaviors may be reflections of intelligence, a new study finds.
Evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa at the the London School of Economics and Political Science correlated data on these behaviors with IQ from a large national U.S. sample and found that, on average, people who identified as liberal and atheist had higher IQs. This applied also to sexual exclusivity in men, but not in women. The findings will be published in the March 2010 issue of Social Psychology Quarterly.
There is but one thing – and only one thing, if you ask me – that can be viewed as a proper response to an asshat like this.
And thank you, Sack-o-shit Kwanzaanawa, but I’ll take the Apostle Paul’s intellect – not to mention He who gave to him – over your fecal-material-between-the-ears any day of the week.

As you may or may not have noticed, the space clock’s back…
[His Rudeness is rather brusquely interrupted by the red-alert klaxon. Think Star Trek 2009.]
KLAXON: (WHOOP!!! WHOOP!!! WHOOP!!!)
T-BONE MCMANX (over shipwide): Red Alert! Red Alert! This is not a drill! Admiral Venomous to the bridge!
[The Sith Lord moves quickly to the intercom.]
VENOMOUS: Venomous to bridge, report!
T-BONE MCMANX: Admiral, we’ve just received a report of a massive explosion aboard Phoenix near the Coruscant system! Massive hull breaches, sir; she’s adrift and burning in space!
VENOMOUS: Intercept course, Mr. McManx – maximum warp. I’m on my way.
Denizens, now it’s the work machine’s turn to go belly-up. (If it ain’t one thing, it’s another, right?)
Posting as I can manage it.

Sorry, Denizens. The Muse (ha!) took the night off.

[ED. NOTE: Because my post on the Crist brouhaha eclipsed the Vicar’s post before you guys even had a chance to see it, I’m bumping it to today so it can have its place in the sun. Cthulu knows that The Six Or Seven wouldn’t even know I had anything underneath the top post if I didn’t remind them of it from time to time. -DV]
This is one of those messages which get forwarded endlessly in email. The Story, however, long predates email, having been around at least since I was a kid. A friend recently sent it to me.
The message is timeless, and having just posted it to the Church blog, I thought I would also post it here.
Sermon without a word
A member of a certain church, who previously had been attending Services regularly, stopped going. After a few weeks, the preacher Decided to visit him.
It was a chilly evening. The preacher found the man at home alone, Sitting before a blazing fire. Guessing the reason for his preachers Visit, the man welcomed him, led him to a comfortable chair near the Fireplace and waited.
The preacher made himself at home but said nothing. In the grave Silence, he contemplated the dance of the flames around the burning Logs. After some minutes, the preacher took the fire tongs, Carefully picked up a brightly burning ember and placed it to one Side of the hearth all alone then he sat back in his chair, still Silent.
The host watched all this in quiet contemplation. As the one lone Ember’s flame flickered and diminished, there was a momentary glow And then its fire was no more. Soon it was cold and dead. Not a word had been spoken since the initial greeting.
The preacher Glanced at his watch and realized it was time to leave He slowly Stood up, picked up the cold, dead ember and placed it back in the Middle of the fire. Immediately it began to glow, once more with the Light and warmth of the burning coals around it.
As the preacher reached the door to leave, his host said with a tear Running down his cheek, ‘Thank you so much for your visit and
Especially for the fiery sermon. I shall be back in church next Sunday.

Down in The Former Temporary Home Of The Realm (aka Florida), Republican establishment (and trust me on this – I do mean that in the worst possible of ways) goober-natorial candy-date Charlie Crist has yet (in the face of a surging candidacy by conservative Marco Rubio) to see his own personal “Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin” on the wall.
But that doesn’t mean his staffers don’t see it.
In the latest sign of turbulence for Charlie Crist’s wounded U.S. Senate bid, key staffers are starting to leave the campaign.
Political director Pablo Diaz, one of the first two staff members hired for the Senate campaign, is departing at the end of the month for “a new opportunity.” Sean Doughtie, a well-regarded new media consultant who had worked with Crist for years, stopped working for the campaign at the end of January.
“The campaign was going in a different direction,” said Doughtie.
In another sign of Crist’s eagerness to shake up the race, he has ended his long-standing resistance to debating Rubio, who had been challenging him to debate for months. Days ago, Crist announced he wanted to debate Rubio on Meet the Press March 7 and Fox News Sunday on March 28. Rubio responded by insisting that Fox host their first debate since the network had been talking to the campaigns about it since mid December.
“I don’t care, but I hope we can do Meet the Press, too. … Doesn’t he want to meet the press?” Crist told the St. Petersburg Times. “Why not do both? Let’s giddyup.”
Curious. Don’t the cowboys “giddyup” onto the wall to avoid the onrushing bull?
Ah, the last desperate gasps of a dying candidacy…
Crist attended a National Governor’s Association meeting Monday at the White House. To reporters afterward he firmly defended his vocal support of the $787 billion federal stimulus package that has generated so much criticism from Rubio and other conservatives. “It doesn’t matter at all, not one iota. He’s wrong and I’m right,” he said of Rubio’s attacks.
And then he wonders how he could possibly be getting his ass handed to him on a platter.
No, really – he does.
“We needed the money, and it saved 87,000 jobs in our state.”
Uh, no you didn’t, and no – it didn’t. Just ask Evan Bayh.
Buh-bye, Chuckles. Thanks for playing.

Let it never be said that conservatives aren’t a charitable lot.
Our crazy uncle in the basement (as it were), 9/11 TrutherLord Ron Paul, got his annual fifteen minutes of fame last night in winning the CPAC straw poll.
(Lest anyone take this poll, y’know, seriously – Romney (aka Super Captain Mormonman) won this poll the last three years running. How’d that work out for ya, Romn-bo?

Well this was certainly a nice way to treat the Dalai Lama – out the servants’ entrance alongside the trash.
Be mindful, Ayatollah – the real trash gets taken out in November 2012.

Reggie Dwight says Jesus was homosexual.
Now, I have to admit – Reginald Dwight’s Jesus may, in fact, be “gay”.
But Reginald Dwight’s Jesus isn’t the Christ I worship, nor is he the object of adoration of the millions of other souls that constitute Christendom.
Which is to say that I guaran-damn-tee you that Elton John’s christ isn’t the Lamb who took away the sin of the world.
And it should go without saying that Elton John’s Jesus won’t be saving him from the fires of Hell anytime soon.

Denizens, I’m likely not going to feel much like writing today (could always change my mind, though), so here, for your Homework Assignment, is Yet Another Beautifully-Written Treatise by Emperor Misha His Own Self.
It is well worth your time & effort. Go. Shoo.

Denizens, this right here is People’s Exhibit #73,717 as to why I hate the hell outta polls. (It’s also reason number 98,110 why the Lame Stream Media is on its way down the Royal Shitter.)
Americans of both parties overwhelmingly oppose a Supreme Court ruling that allows corporations and unions to spend as much as they want on political campaigns, and most favor new limits on such spending, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
No. They. Don’t. To quote a very recently famous Congresscritter, “You lie!”.
Eight in 10 poll respondents say they oppose the high court’s Jan. 21 decision to allow unfettered corporate political spending, with 65 percent “strongly” opposed. Nearly as many backed congressional action to curb the ruling, with 72 percent in favor of reinstating limits.
Bullshit. Pure, unadulterated, unfiltered, unleavened, unmedicated, unsweetened, non-bio-effin’-degradable bull-fuckin’-shit.
The poll reveals relatively little difference of opinion on the issue among Democrats (85 percent opposed to the ruling), Republicans (76 percent) and independents (81 percent).
The results suggest a strong reservoir of bipartisan support on the issue
And that, sportz fanz, was my first clue that something was fucking rotten in Denmark. Given the current political climate, the average Republican & Demoscum aren’t going to agree on what day it is, much less getting an overwhelming majority to agree on something about which conservatives like me have been screaming now for years.
Well, NewsBusters did a little digging on the matter, and this is what they found:
The misinformation begins right in the lede, where reporter Dan Eggen claims the SCOTUS decision “allows corporations and unions to spend as much as they want on political campaigns.” That statement is utterly false. The decision allows corporations and unions to spend unlimited dollars on political advertising. Restrictions on campaign contributions are still in place.
The misinformation continues to flow into the second paragraph, where Eggen claims that the law under the Citizens United decision permits “unfettered corporate political spending.” No it doesn’t. It allows unfettered corporate speech.
Later in the story Eggen writes, “the decision appears to open the door to unlimited spending by corporations, trade groups and unions in the weeks leading up to an election, which has been explicitly banned for decades.” Once again, the article doesn’t mention that spending is not unlimited. Only spending on political speech is unlimited.
And when you get to one of the questions the WaPooP asked, it becomes clear why this is a bullshit poll:
Do you support or oppose the recent ruling by the Supreme Court that says corporations and unions can spend as much money as they want to help political candidates win elections?
Which is, of course, unfettered bullshit. The Citizens United ruling lifts the ban on spending on political speech. It does not say that corporations can finance entire political campaigns, which is exactly what this question implies it does.
Fuck you, WaPooP. No wonder you bastards are screaming for a bailout.

With the TSA doing this, I think it safe to say that we are no longer a nation of free citizens.
The question is, what can we, or what should we do about it? I am a big believer in limited government, and in my view, the safety and security of airline passengers is the responsibility of the airlines themselves, not some boated and ineffective Federal bureaucracy.

Denizens, if you get a chance, run over to Riehl’s and check out this thread – particularly towards the bottom of the first page’s comments.
Yes, that’s me.
Continue on to the next page and keep reading. After I issue the standard CSITMF challenges, the dismantling of the socialist libtard(s) begins in earnest.
That is classic mass-beatdown pwnage, even if I do say so myself. It’s been a long time since I completely dominated a libtard like that.
And damn, but it felt good.
