Same To You, Justice Scalia.

Did Fat Tony just give us all the bird? Well, yes and no. No, he didn’t do this publicly — as far as we know — but, yes, he’s been giving the USA the bird since 1986 when President Reagan appointed him to the Supreme Court.… [Read more]

Stanley Hudson, Fashion Designer: A Class Act

I started watching Project Runway this year in an attempt to understand what designers are thinking when they fashion clothing. First and most important, the best designers are artists first.  I like artists; after all, I am one.… [Read more]

A Kiss is Just a Kiss

The Academy Awards were just a week ago so, before everyone moves on (well, most of us have already moved on), let’s talk about kissing.… [Read more]

Ted Cruz: Seeing Red

So, just who is this Tea Party-approved Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), anyhow? When we first saw his picture, we thought we were looking at Joe McCarthy.… [Read more]

Giving up the Popedom for Lent

Every day, it seems, there’s a new story or rumor of an imminent scandal involving the decision of Pope Benedict XVI to resign as of this Thursday.… [Read more]

Cleavage, Cleavage, Everywhere.

OK, I’m sick of it. It’s always been on the covers of men’s magazines, and on the covers of women’s magazines.

But, I’ve gotten pretty used to seeing the edges of implants, clearly visible, ogled on television and in real life.… [Read more]

Time takes its toll and we all know it.… [Read more]

Richard Hodo Equates Gay Rights Groups With The KKK

When individuals attempt to talk about politically charged topics like Civil Rights with people who do not share their point of view, they may encounter a style of argument that very much resembles the classic Lucy/Harpo mirror routine, but with a generally abysmally small amount of ensuing hilarity.  This is true whether one is “watching” the old, original black vs.… [Read more]

Out To Lynch: The Ku Klux Klan converges on Memphis, Tennessee

Did you think The Ku Klux Klan was gone or, at least, a shriveled remnant of its former self? Well, if you did, you’d be wrong. The Ku Klux Klan still bills itself as “Bringing a Message of Hope and Deliverance to White Christian America” — as though white, Christian Americans needed deliverance from anything or anyone, or as if they needed more hope than the minorities whom The Klan has been criminally persecuting vigorously since 1865.… [Read more]

Voodoo Doll #41: Phyllis Schlafly.

Until we read Brian Tashman’s recent article at Right Wing Watch about Phyllis Schlafly’s latest outrage — a condemnation of Defense Secretary Leon Panetta over his recent ruling which will permit women in combat — we weren’t even certain that this overblown, walking contradiction is still alive!… [Read more]
