You vigilantes have not righted the scales of justice. All you have done is sat at your computer and wrecked a person's life.

Bruce Jenner: ‘I’m A Republican And A Christian’

That hilariously encapsulates the new Republican Party right now. A fucking freak show.

Jesus loves liberals. However, the rest of us know they are complete assholes.

You are correct.

That said, it's quite entertaining to watch/hear libs going absolutely bat-shit mental over this development.

Al Gore's Twitter is beyond self-parody. Here is his photo:

And here is what he contemplates.

Spoiler: The tiny blue marble that is earth floating in a sea of nothingness. Except for Al Gore contemplating it.

The inside of Lurch Gore's thick fucking skull is a sea of nothingness.

Fucking douche.

plays well with otters

Looks strangely like Leonard Cohen

With a dash of Nimoy

Cohen's face looks very authentic, though. Got that five o'clock shadow going and a real facial expression.

That pic of Gore...it could be a Madame Tussaud shot.

Kittehs are sold by weight, not by volume. Some settling may have occurred.

That pick of Leonard Cohen looks like Anthony Bourdain.

This is Nigel Farage's Twitter background:

Obviously, he's all about that "which candidate would you want to have a beer with?" quality.

I'm not gay or anything, but I think Romney might be the best looking 68-year-old man I've ever seen.

Someone ought to write a "Mormon lifestyle for healthier living" book.

It comes with a book, actually...

Romney floats like a bee and stings like a butterfly

At Romney's age, he should be happy that people compare his movement to any insect's at all other than the wriggling of insect larvae, such as grubs and maggots, which feed on corpses.

I do regret that more Republicans didn't give Romney a chance when he was willing to try out his restrictionist platform in 2008. Romney was a hundred times better the candidate to fulfill conservative aspirations than was John McCain, but it was all Mormon this and Mormon that.

Regardless of numerical age, Romney's movement does not resemble an insect larva's wriggling. Staying healthy is something to be happy about, but that people don't make the comparison is unremarkable.

Consider that when Dick Cheney became VP he was eight years younger than Romney was when Romney boxed Holyfield.

The man on the left was and is 15 years older than the man on the right:

Cold ass honky

Epic Twitter rant on the Chinese hacking.

By the way, the Chinese hacking is apropos for such a rant because it occurred to me that the Chinese system and ours could be headed for a convergence. We've had several people in our ruling class--and the media, which is ostensibly supposed to be the loyal opposition--talk admiringly of how much more efficient it would be to solve problems if our system was more like theirs (translated: less democratic).

Likewise, those who should stand up for free speech and other rights of individuals are more willing to see them compromised in the name of maintaining a civil society.

Meanwhile, the Chinese are probably moderating their politics while we are moving toward trade bills that the public aren't allowed to read and most government being conducted by extra-democratic means.

The convergence for both could be bureaucracy that is so big and encompassing that it need employ violence only very rarely.
