  1. Guess those guys who were interviewed for Details aren’t alone in their obsession with anal being a tool of humiliation.

  2. We’ve been pretty Florida-centric the last couple of days, in part because I’m feeling torn over the actions of Florida’s governor. He’s doing some good stuff, but he’s also hitting us (read, the posters) hard in the workplace.

    Funny, I was thinking: “Guess those guys who were interviewed for Details are Republican.” 😉

  4. Yes! You can remove unsightly leg hair with duct tape! With photos!

  5. Re: Vitter/Allen

    The only mildly amusing thing that I’ll probably ever write.

  6. Jason Reed gets the best photographs. I can almost hear Bush telling that joke and overpronouncing “e jec ted.”

  7. Blog whoring my peice on the recent murder of a young girl by her ex boyfriend and the strange behavior of the girls mother…..

  8. Over on The Fat Lady Sings, I blogged about how lax our govt is in regulating nuclear material – undercover agents managed to get licensing and order material with only a fake office and a mailbox!

  9. I’ve got a piece that might suggest a nice feature for your “Sex Scandal Deck” — Scratch and Sniff!

  10. Pingback: The Daily Background » Blog Archive » Did John McCain just violate (gasp) campaign finance law?

  11. Passing this on:

    Would you please take one minute to call your member of Congress and ask him or her to vote in favor of the medical marijuana amendment that the U.S. House of Representatives will be voting on next week?

    It’s easy: Just call the Capitol switchboard operator at (202) 224-3121. Give the operator your zip code and ask to be connected to your U.S. House member; you don’t even need to know your congressperson’s name to do this.

    When the receptionist for the congressperson — not the Capitol switchboard operator — answers, say something like: “Hi, this is [name]. I live in [city], and I’m calling to ask that my representative vote for Rep. Maurice Hinchey’s [HIN-chee’s] medical marijuana amendment to the Justice Department’s spending bill, which I understand will be considered on the House floor next week. The amendment would prohibit the Justice Department from spending taxpayer money to arrest medical marijuana patients in the 12 states where medical marijuana is legal.”

    Please call now: (202) 224-3121
