You really have to be kidding me:

Haven't they made flying uncomfortable enough already?

This looks like something you would find in a hemorrhoid treatment clinic.

Who thinks up this stuff?

Ouchie ouchie ouch.

And so it goes.

Opponents of the Islamic Center in New York City near the 9/11 site say the area is 'hallowed ground' and therefore nothing Islamic should be built there.

In the same hallowed ground neighborhood as the proposed Islamic Center (NOT a mosque, by the way): a strip club and a betting parlor.

A strip club and a betting parlor.

Hallowed ground?

Hallo? Anyone out there?

And so it goes.

Apropo of absolutely nothing

Sometimes the mind wanders. Probably where it shouldn't.

And that mind has decided with certainty that women as a human subspecies have no taste whatsoever.

It they did, the human race would have died out tens of thousands of years ago.

My thinking: The male portion of the human subspecies is, generally, pretty disgusting. Disgusting looking. Disgusting acting. Disgusting in every way possible. Pull my finger and laugh outrageously disgusting. Although I speak no language other than English, I'm betting that in languages with gender differentiation for words, disgusting is universally male.

And not just disgusting. As a group, we're just about universally ugly.

There may be a couple Brad Pitts and George Clooneys out there, but 99% of us are just ugly. No other way to state it.

Yet, somehow, for reasons I cannot fathom, women find men handsome, or cute or hot. Other than the few Brad Pitts and George Clooneys out there, I just don't see it. I have a mirror. I've been in a lot of locker rooms in my lifetime. Handsome, cute, good looking, hot generally ain't there.

Ugly. Disgustingly ugly.

Even the junk we're so proud of, we must admit, is pretty disgusting junk.

But women, for some reason, like some of us. They like us enough to marry us. Make love to us. Make babies with us. Make lives with us.

It makes no sense. Except that using a male yardstick, women have questionable taste at best.

But I'm sure glad they do.

Viva la difference!

(I told you this had nothing to do with anything pertinent. Other than the fact that I just celebrated our 18th anniversary with the most wonderful woman in the world. I still cannot believe I'm allowed in the presence of such a beautiful soul.).

And so it goes.

Yeah, you

God bless the Christian right, right?

The Christian Right is not-so-slowly taking control of the GOP. Is this what we can expect more of in the future?

Religious intolerance has worked so well in Iran, Iraq ... 

Why not here?

The GOP says it's gonna retake control of Congress.

THIS JUST IN: As you may have heard, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh and Terry Jones (you know, the Gainesville, Fla., pastor who threatened to burn Korans on 9/11) graduated from the same high school in Cape Girardeau, Mo., in 1969.
I grieve for America.

And so it goes.

Has anyone noticed that since the Alaskan standup comedian Sarah Palin has arrived on the scene, no one has seen or heard from Dan Quayle?


I think not.

The GOP always seems to have at least one irrelevant court jester around, don't they?

And so it goes.

Why not?

I know, let's get all out political insights from a failed top-40 radio DJ who's willing to sell anything and everything for a profit.

Novelist Stephen King has referred to Glenn Beck as "Satan's mentally challenged younger brother."

King is too kind.

And so it goes.
