Rock and Bea - Drugs and Dream Queens

Rock Hudson and Bea Arthur sing about every drug under the sun ...

Via: VideoSift

My favorite line was Rock's, about how "you thought amyl nitrate was just some guy's name." Wow.
The tune is from musical I Love My Wife, in 1979, peformed on The Beatrice Arthur Special (info towards the bottom of the page)

Fear and Politics

The only thing to fear...
are those who tell you to
be afraid

From the document:
Much of the current alarm is generated from the knowledge that many of today's terrorists simply want to kill, and kill more or less randomly, for revenge or as an act of what they take to be The shock and tragedy of September 11 does demand a focused and dedicated program to confront international terrorism and to attempt to prevent a repeat. But it seems sensible to suggest that part of this reaction should include an effort by politicians, officials, and the media to inform the public reasonably and realistically about the terrorist context instead of playing into the hands of terrorists by frightening the public. What is needed, as one statistician suggests, is some sort of convincing, coherent, informed, and nuanced answer to a central question: "How worried should I be?" Instead, the message the nation has received so far is, as a Homeland Security official put (or caricatured) it, "Be scared; be very, very scared -- but go on with your lives." Such messages have led many people to develop what Leif Wenar of the University of Sheffield has aptly labeled "a false sense of insecurity."

Vivus prize essay

Vivus prize essay: "There may be a hidden irony in environmentalism that worships biodiversity but derogates consumerism, if both result from the same imperatives of sexual signalling."

Venom-spitting Sideshow Freak - Anne Coulter

YouTube - Anne Coulter - Clueless

Two videos here of Coulter being nuts, first on Clinton ("gay") and then on Gore ("big fag")

Ugly-soulled woman reveals to world, yet again, that she inhabits a different reality, one of her own making. A self-indulgent irresponsible motormouth, she is pretty and articulate enough to be invited on shows to spew her venom.

Too smart not to be able to know how divisive and harmful her constant lying is, and the effect it has on the nation, she is either motivated from ill-will and a touch of evil, in which case her lies are acts of anti-Americanism; or she has had some sort of psychic disturbance and a break with reality, and she really believes the words she spits. And in desperate need of therapy.

Of Anne:

update: I just found this gem. It's a piece by Al Franken, and a smoldering opening statement he made during a public debate with the blonde bombastic beelzebub.

Here's a snippet, referring to a previous debate:
But Ann went first, and set her tone for the entire evening. "It was fascinating being here for the demonstrations this weekend," she said with a snotty Darien sneer. "I guess that's why I didn't get clean towels in my hotel room this morning."

There was an audible gasp from the Jews. Ann continued: "I haven't seen so many agitated Mexicans since the World Cup Soccer Games were in L.A." As offended as the diners were, the waiters were pissed. Ann was actually dumb enough to drink her coffee afterwards.

Dancing for Armageddon, literally

This is snipped from the most recent Harper's. These people are insane, and should be kept isolated in their own little corner somewhere, not anywhere within earshot of the decider.
It turns out there's an upside to the current conflict between Israel and Hezbollah—if you're waiting for the second coming of Christ. Here's a selection of excited messages spotted over the last few days on the Rapture Ready/End Times Chat online bulletin board. By Ken Silverstein.
Praise God! We are chosen to be in these times and also watch and spread the word. Something inside me is exploding to get out, and I don't know what it is. Its kind of like I want to do cartwheels around the neighborhood.

* * *
In another thread, someone brought up the fact that the kidnapping of the first Israeli soldier that started this whole thing was on June 25th and if you count from that day to August is *EXACTLY 40 days!!!!!*

I find that to be a HUGE coincidence.

Star Trek TOS Knights of the Round Table

Culture devouring itself
and being reborn, like the Phoenix

Mash up of Star Trek original series, and Monty Python Knights of the Round Table song

No matter how far I may think I have come since the days when we would gather early before chemistry class in highschool, and re-enact skits from the previous night's Python -- that is, how far from authentic highschool nerdom -- I see something such as this video, and there's that feeling full force: now I just need a chemistry class to be early for.

The Precipice of the Brink of War??

This is an example of why I love Jon Stewart.

Ballgag for Bill Kristol, please

Do you hear an echo?
Billyboy Kristol is one who insited the Iraqis would welcome us with open arms. He's singing the same tune, minor change in lyrics.
Now it's the Iranians who want us to occupy their lands.

A curse on all the warmongers.

I did some digging and found a little information about the source for this clip, at Jewschool. The posting is from February 2006, as was the production, as can be seen from the the poster. The resolution isn't clear enough to tell much more about it though. And the original links in the posting are no longer live.
