You probably think you know what this is. [singlepic=595,560,560,,center] You don’t. [singlepic=594,560,560,,center]Parasaurolophus, aka Reminiscent-of-a-Bird-Rawr . This, my friends, is a Rawr. An unusual-looking, kinda-looks-like-a-bird variety of Rawr, yes, but a Rawr nonetheless. A Rawr in the tradition of the Archaeopteryx.

How Do We Define Separation of Church and State? Or a Campaign from a Presidency? Or a Not-for-Profit Venture v. The Man? Discuss. No Big Whoop.

You guys know I’m a liberal commie pinko, and you know I voted for Obama. What you might not know is that I’ve developed such an admiration for our new President that it’s bordering on being a crush. I’ve never experienced anything quite like it–respect for an elected official? What is this strange sensation? I […]

I resisted the idea of doing a political or pro-voting post today, for the same reason I don’t like to do Halloween posts on Halloween, or Fourth of July posts on the Fourth of July: they are hard to do well. And so many people do them that, after a while your eyes start to […]

Imaginary Journalism: ABDPBT interviews Sarah Palin on Her List of Proposed Banned Books That Is Circulating the Internet Despite The Fact That It is Probably Bogus. Because What If It Weren’t? Wouldn’t This Be Funny?

My mother forwarded me an email yesterday from a group soliciting responses to be posted on a blog called Women Against Sarah Palin. Though I think Sarah Palin is an ignorant bigot fucktard, I must admit that I am hesitant to join a group that calls itself such a reactionary name–what are we against, exactly? […]
