    Last week Mike Huckabee stepped into a whole bunch of B.S. about Obama’s childhood, his father and grandfather and those infamous Mao Mao’s….

    But this self-professed Man of God is still at it this week. Only this time, he is bringing up those perceived ‘death panels’.

    Take note that he was in North Carolina for his latest book tour and was received as a rock star.

    Instead of fearing these debunked infamous ‘death panels’ – maybe we should fear Preacher Mike and his wannabe’s who follow him like a bunch of backstage groupies?

  2. South African doctor invents female condoms with ‘teeth’ to fight rape

    South African Dr. Sonnet Ehlers was on call one night four decades ago when a devastated rape victim walked in. Her eyes were lifeless; she was like a breathing corpse.

    “She looked at me and said, ‘If only I had teeth down there,'” recalled Ehlers, who was a 20-year-old medical researcher at the time. “I promised her I’d do something to help people like her one day.”

    Forty years later, Rape-aXe was born.

    Ehlers is distributing the female condoms in the various South African cities where the World Cup soccer games are taking place.

    The woman inserts the latex condom like a tampon. Jagged rows of teeth-like hooks line its inside and attach on a man’s penis during penetration, Ehlers said.

    Once it lodges, only a doctor can remove it — a procedure Ehlers hopes will be done with authorities on standby to make an arrest.

    “It hurts, he cannot pee and walk when it’s on,” she said. “If he tries to remove it, it will clasp even tighter… however, it doesn’t break the skin, and there’s no danger of fluid exposure.”

      gotta give her kudos for creativity…..

      On a serious note – isn’t it a shame someone even has to think up something like this device because some men have this neanderthal (my apologies to the decent neanderthals) mentality of what ever they want, they have the right to grab it and take it?

    Some more humor for the day…. the next time a GOP-BOT demonizes Obama for using a teleprompter, remind them of this GOP-FEM-BOT that seems to need her teleprompter.

    But at least Obama can ad-lib through his speeches. This poor little thing could not even do that. I don’t know why – aren’t all the GOP-BOT speechs the same talking points?

  4. This must be funny. We have a U.S. Senator who made this comparison seriously… Only a moron would make this comparison without it being some stupid and in very poor taste attempt at being funny.

    Rand Paul: I Have Less Choice In Toilets Than Women Have In Abortions

    • Isn’t he, in effect, calling the kettle black? He’s bitching about not having a choice? He wants us out of his bathroom but it’s perfectly all right for him to be in MY exam room?!?! WTF!

      Seriously, read the comments. If you aren’t rolling on the floor while doing that, you need to see a doctor.

      I’ll give Republicans one thing: First they make me cry, but then they make me cry because I’m laughing so hard.

  5. Geek time. D/L and installed Firefox 4 rc tonight. Sweet (so far).
