John McCain is an Ass Man

No Heroics

A new show coming to the UK. Looks awesome. Thanks for the share, Lene!

Fundraising for Prop 8

The Los Angeles has a sobering graph of the fundraising efforts on both sides of California’s Prop 8 (the ban on gay marriage). The anti-gay marriage folks are ahead in fundraising.

If you haven’t already donated money to Equality For All, consider doing so now. I’ve already donated twice, and have started volunteering with them too.

Cher as Catwoman?

Bwahahaha. Hahahahaha. Hahahahahahahahaha.

That’s the rumor anyway:

“A studio executive said: “Cher is Nolan’s first choice to play Catwoman. He wants to portray her like a vamp in her twilight years. The new Catwoman will be the absolute opposite of Michelle Pfeiffer and Halle Berry’s purring creations.”

Dude, whatevs. That is such total gossip bullshit. And if it’s not, Chris Nolan is a fart knocker.

Newsweek Fact Checks the Rezko Non-Scandal

Great article by Newsweek debunking most of the McCain’s claims about Rezko. I think it’s just a repub from FactCheck.org. Either way, it’s important stuff to know.

Super Hero Costumes Are SO Gay!

Loves it! The He-Man bit is hi-larious.

Cylon Toast!

So so so so awesome. I want one.

Kucinich at the DNC Convention

Reports are that Kucinich drew several standing ovations for his rousing speech. Montanna Governor Brian Scweitzer gave a rousing speech too. Wow.

Excerpt from Kucinich’s speech:

“Wake up, America. The insurance companies took over healthcare … Wake up, America. The speculators took over Wall Street.” Kucinich said, the applause growing with each repetition. “Wake up, America. They want to take your Social Security. Wake up, America. Multinational corporations took over our trade policies, factories are closing, good-paying jobs lost. Wake up, America. We went into Iraq for oil. The oil companies want more … Wake up, America. Weapons contractors want more.”

McCain’s Many Many Homes

Some great new photos pointing out the hypocrisy of McCain’s multi-home ownership:

Also, Obama launched a quick response to McCain’s recent gaffe, in which McCain couldn’t recall how many homes he had.

For Everything Else, There’s False Profit

This is a spoof commercial for the upcoming Priceless campout. I effing love the way they’ve played with the name, theme, and advertising campaign. This is exactly what I had in mind when I came up with the name a few years back.

McCain Wasn’t Tortured by Bush’s Definition

Andrew Sullivan points out that by Bush/Cheyney’s definition of torture, John McCain was not officially tortured in Vietnam. Hrm…

From Sullivan:

No war crimes were committed against McCain. And the techniques used are, according to the president, tools to extract accurate information. And so the false confessions that McCain was forced to make were, according to the logic of the Bush administration, as accurate as the “intelligence” we have procured from “interrogating” terror suspects. Feel safer?…

…Now the kicker: in the Military Commissions Act, McCain acquiesced to the use of these techniques against terror suspects by the CIA. And so the tortured became the enabler of torture. Someone somewhere cried out in pain for the same reasons McCain once did. And McCain let it continue.

Social Notworking

Lene sent this my way (as a hint?)…

Social Notworking pp. Surfing a social networking site instead of working. Also:social not-working.
—social notworker n.

Example Citations:
It’s time businesses faced up to Facebook.

Some users waste hours on social notworking sites, but a gentle hint may work better than a ban.
—Daniel Robinson, “It’s time businesses faced up to Facebook,” IT Week, October 8, 2007

Slim-line, modern and slick, this metal and glass computer desk features a pull-out keyboard worktop and shelf, perfect for wasting time social “not-working”.
—Charlotte Philby, “The Ten Best Desks,” Independent Extra, August 11, 2008

Earliest Citation:
Welcome to SocialNotworking.co.uk. The idea behind this site is to offer some alternatives to those people who have been there, done that and got the t-shirt in terms of the whole social networking phenomena.

In the same way as smokers get away with working less than non-smokers due to their smoking breaks, those people developing addictions to social networking sites are working less, and notworking more!
