“Can’t Get Enough of Ron Paul…”

By |Thursday, December 22nd, 2011|Categories: Politics, Uncategorized|Tags: |0 Comments

I really like talking about Ron Paul and for a number of reasons. Firstly, because the media and the mainstream opinion make him out to be a crazy-know-nothing, who somehow has been elected and re-elected as a congressman of the state of Texas since before most of his supporters were born. The state of Texas may be a little looney-tunes (no offense) but you

“Virginia Really is For Lovers”

By |Wednesday, December 21st, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: |0 Comments

I know you don’t really care, but being from Virginia (the capital state of the south) and living and working in Atlanta, Georgia (the capital city of the south) I am really proud of my southern heritage (even though I am black). I love history! And history has been made once again in the great commonwealth of Virginia.

At first, I saw the image above and simply thought it was about

Politifact Lies

Politifact is a news organization that measures the truthiness of political statements. Well, they’re liars now too.

Paul Krugman wakes up this morning, mourning the death of Politifact. He has good cause! In announcing its 2011 “Lie Of

Huff Post: “Quote of the Year: ‘I am the 99%'”

As the 2011 year comes to a close, and I step one foot closer to the end of my six month grace period for my student loans, now is the time to look at our year in review. Journalist and news sites are already claiming that the Occupy moment takes the cake for quote of the year. Their slogan, “I am

Vanity Fair reported late last night that Christopher Hitchens died at age 62. His death was caused by pneumonia brought upon by esophageal cancer, which he was diagnosed with in 2010.

From the Vanity Fair article –

“Cancer victimhood contains a permanent temptation to be self-centered and even solipsistic,” Hitchens wrote nearly a year ago in Vanity Fair, but his own

Marijuana for Children with ADHD?

So that’s a very old story from Countdown. But I just found it so let’s pretend it’s new.

I’m not one of those potheads who claim marijuana cures everything. However, I do think that when it comes down to it, a cookie with weed in it can’t be any worse for a child than the amphetamine concoctions

Grand Theft Auto V Facebook Ad Scam Still Running

By |Saturday, December 10th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

A few days back, I posted this article about a Facebook Advertisement for a free copy of GTA V.

Beware, this is ad is a scam, and it is still running on Facebook.

I saw it again just a moment ago. I was surprised because I figured by the

Daily Show Moment of Zen – Mitt Romney on Music (12/7/2011)

By |Friday, December 9th, 2011|Categories: Humor, Politics|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

One of my favorite parts of The Daily Show on Comedy Central is its Moment of Zen segment, where a short clip from that day’s news coverage (almost always from one of the three US cable news networks) closes the show unaccompanied by commentary. They’re generally moments of awkwardness, often targeted towards the most dedicated news-junkie. Though recent news coverage has provided for some great “moment of zen” moments, last

Could Rick Perry’s ‘Strong’ Ad be More Predictable?

Rick Perry promises war on homosexuals and religious freedom

Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub

I knew I had to write something about this after seeing it. However, Ed Darrell expresses the same sentiments as mine with regard to Perry better, and in fewer words (and expletives), than I could. Which I appreciate, as now I may focus on making fun of him.

This ad will re-define the boundaries of political satire this election

Are Facebook Ads Really This Easy for Scammers to Abuse?

By |Wednesday, December 7th, 2011|Categories: Humor|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

A moment ago, whilst engaged in my usual Facebook creeping routine, my eyes were drawn to one of the advertisements; as often is the case. I have long since accepted that Facebook is more aware of my interests than me. Being a dirt poor college student, however, I never actually click them. This ad was special though. It was advertising something free.

Rev. Al Sharpton’s Blueberry Pie Promo (VIDEO)

Al Sharpton loves blueberry pie. And metaphors.

Sharpton has been anchoring PoliticsNation on MSNBC for about four months now. Obviously, he’s earned his own promo. There’s no way in hell Sharpton is wasting it in a nasty shipyard like Ed. Not the great Reverend Al Sharpton. He’s gonna stick with what he loves.
