When South Park depicted Mohammad in a bear costume it was a brilliant piece of satire about how unreasonable Muslims can be about images of him. They were basically saying, this is Mohammad, but not really because he is covered in bear costume, so don't riot and kill people because we technically didn't do anything wrong according to the rules that exist in your crazy head.
Those guys raised awareness about how irrational this issue is in a way that was funny, sharp, brilliant, and it made a very good point.
While I have no problem with others who participated in "Draw Mohammad Day" I'm not sure much of what I saw came even remotely close to accomplishing the same thing....I'm sure it wasn't supposed to. I did see one piece here that made me say ".....ok, I got that."
Don't get me wrong, regulars to this blog know I'm obviously all for being a smart-ass, but I feel like the artists (or "artists") should have striven to not reduce themselves to the same level as those who thought it was great to photograph crucifixes submerged in urine.
There is A LOT of fun to be poked at Islam, I just don't think desecrating their prophet is a very effective path to take.
To each their own, but that's why I didn't participate in "Draw Mohammad Day."Add a comment
Before he became president of Mexico was Felipe Calderon an anatomy teacher, or does showing our government what a backbone looks like just come naturally?
I have to admit, when I first heard about the criticism of Arizona I was a little on fire about it, but then I watched the video above, because rational people don't make judgements about things they haven't seen for themselves.
I'm glad to see that it is actually not lost on Calderon that Mexico's chief export has been its population because his country sort of sucks. He actually acknowledges that Mexican's leaving their country can be damaging to Mexico.
This begs the question of why then does Mexico oppose any efforts the United States takes to have an immigration policy that is 100% more sane, and only half as oppressive as their own?
Mexico cracks down on illegal immigration coming from their southern border.
They put their military on their border.
They put the fear of God into their businesses to make sure their workers have THEIR papers in order.
So when did "Calderon" become Spanish for "hypocrite?"
Follow the money. "Migration," as Calderon puts it, makes Mexico a money vacuum with American dollars being sent back to the families of illegal immigrants. If you can believe it, dollars are still more valuable to Mexicans over the peso than our Vice Presidency is to Obama and Pelosi.
While I find it a bit offensive, I'm not mad that Felipe Calderon came to the United States and vented frustration for the sake of Mexico. I would actually like to slap an electric collar on Obama that goes off when he utters the words "United States" and "sorry" in the same sentence, and see him grow a spine and do what Calderon did, but on behalf of us.Add a comment
Eat your heart out William Hung.
While reading Biden's part it is important that you imagine it to the tune of the Star Spangled Banner (click the photo to see a larger version).
On a positive note its nice to see Obama putting his on his heart for something.

Travel back in time to an era where these three would be watched on TV for laughs and not because they were entrusted to be in charge of adult stuff.
Roll over the names of these Three Stooges to see my caption for each of them, leave a comment below with yours.

The judges for this caption would have also accepted Holders insistence on the KSM trial being in New York, or the role of "radical Islam" in terrorism, or accusing Americans of being cowards on race while being part of a political party that gives out the race card like candy at Halloween.
Some tests are multiple choice, but with this administration stupid seems to come in multiple answer.Add a comment
Governor Chris Christie dresses down a reporter for knocking his knees about him being a "combative" politician.
The Democrats wanted to mock Chris Christie for his big stomach, but he has to be a big guy. It takes A LOT of heart to get elected governor of Dirty Democratland and his body desperately needed to make room for it.
In New Jersey he only thing dirtier than the prostitutes are the hookers. The corruption in that state is more notoriously bad than Eric Holder giving a book report on the constitution.
I'm a strong believer in the sanctity of life, which is precisely why I'm in favor of making an exception to human cloning, because Governor Christie needs to replace all GOP politicians until they all graduate from the same school of backbone he attended.
The life of the the party and the country is at stake and we desperately need people who can be half as honest and direct with the voters as Governor Christie has been with this reporter.
Utah got the message, and now they've sent their long time Senator Robert Bennett packing and crying like a
The media has been beside themselves on the matter...."Why, he didn't do anything, he was one of the most conservative members of the senate, he was a reliable conservative vote!"
Precisely. We need need more than just votes now, we need boat rockers. Captain Obama and his Democrat Titanic have a rendezvous with destiny, and we need massive icebergs like Chris Christie, not bed-wetters like Robert Bennett.
GOP voters are done with conservative politicians who fold like Biden holding a royal flush.Add a comment

There is an important creed that Attorney General Eric Holder and his boss, President Obama, live by...
"It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle."
Oh wait, that's not it, maybe this one?
"The greatest ignorance is to reject something you know nothing about."

Is she or isn't she? Ever since the Wall Street Journal published a photo of Supreme Court Justice in waiting Elena Kagan playing softball everyone has wanted to know which team she bats for.
Why is it these kinds of fights only really get picked by the left? Aren't we supposed to be adults here? Why when Democrats are in power must there always be an air of immaturity.
That said, lets raise the bar a little higher here and lament on the fact that this wouldn't be an issue if gaydars actually existed.
Hey! Obama could keep Biden busy and out of his hair by naming him his Gaydar Czar!
If at first you don't succeed...
