5 Feet of Retard on the UNI Shooting

Would it be uncouth of me to suggest that Kathy Shaidle is a shallow, pathetic bottom-feeder? How else to explain her in-depth analysis of the UNI shooting...
"I feel I am committed to social justice"
wrote Illinois University rampage killer, a social work major who also listed "peace" and "political violence" among his interests. (Note that word "feel.")
Ah yes, "social justice": the forced application of unworkable solutions to imaginary problems. So: answer as if you had to bet your life on it -- did this guy vote Democrat or Republican?

Words fail me. But not NAMBLA-obsessed Dick Evans, who chimes in with this PhD thesis:
So a wackjob socialist activist goes berserk and starts shooting... par for the course if you ask me...Posted by: Richard Evans at February 15, 2008 2:00 PM
So when exactly did stupidity become a badge of honour amongst these people?

From the Idiots: Guns Prevent Gun Violence

Today brought another tragedy to an American college campus. A gunman opened fire at Northern Illinois University, and as of this moment, 5 are dead and 18 injured. And in case you were wondering, it didn't take long for the moronosphere to start opining for more guns in the hands of more people.
When will this madness stop? Maybe when we stop being victims.
To borrow a line from one of my favourite movies: Thank you for playing 'Should we or should we not follow the advice of the Galactically Stupid?'

Vote Green

Couldn't help myself...this is a great set of clips from The Awful Truth. Michael Moore runs a ficus plant for Congress (Parts I, II and III). Enjoy!

Romney Projected to Win Maine!!!

OK, I admit that I don't fully understand the nuances of the American Presidential nomination system. Caucuses, primaries, delegates,'s enough to make my head spin.

But according to the graphic above (provided by CNN), Mitt Romney is the projected winner of the Maine caucus, with a double-digit lead on his nearest competitor John McCain. This must come as something of a demoralizing blow to the McCain camp, seeing as Romney dropped out of the race three days ago.

Two questions for anyone who may care to offer an answer:

1. Why does a non-existent candidate remain on the ballot?

2. Why does anyone (and in this case, a majority of people) vote for someone who is no longer in the race??

On the face of it, it seems like total idiocy. Might as well cast a vote for Michael Moore's ficus plant.
