Eli’s Obsession With The Google

Apparently my blog is the #1 search result for why is my man a wanker. So if you happen to be wondering why your man is a wanker – it’s me, okay?  I’m sorry already!

Oh, also the #2 search result for Scooby Doo does dallas. I don’t think I want to know what they were looking for, but my blog probably wasn’t it…

Makes You Proud To Be An American, Don’t It…

We’ve come a long way, but we still have a lot farther to go…

Threats against a new president historically spike right after an election, but from Maine to Idaho law enforcement officials are seeing more against Barack Obama than ever before.

The Secret Service would not comment or provide the number of cases they are investigating. But since the Nov. 4 election, law enforcement officials have seen more potentially threatening writings, Internet postings and other activity directed at Obama than has been seen with any past president-elect, said officials aware of the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity because the issue of a president’s security is so sensitive.

Earlier this week, the Secret Service looked into the case of a sign posted on a tree in Vay, Idaho, with Obama’s name and the offer of a “free public hanging.” In North Carolina, civil rights officials complained of threatening racist graffiti targeting Obama found in a tunnel near the North Carolina State University campus.

And in a Maine convenience store, an Associated Press reporter saw a sign inviting customers to join a betting pool on when Obama might fall victim to an assassin. The sign solicited $1 entries into “The Osama Obama Shotgun Pool,” saying the money would go to the person picking the date closest to when Obama was attacked. “Let’s hope we have a winner,” said the sign, since taken down.


In Milwaukee, police officials found a poster of Obama with a bullet going toward his head — discovered on a table in a police station.

Chatter among white supremacists on the Internet has increased throughout the campaign and since Election Day.

One of the most popular white supremacist Web sites got more than 2,000 new members the day after the election, compared with 91 new members on Election Day, according to an AP count. The site,, was temporarily off-line Nov. 5 because of the overwhelming amount of activity it received after Election Day. On Saturday, one Stormfront poster, identified as Dalderian Germanicus, of North Las Vegas, said, “I want the SOB laid out in a box to see how ‘messiahs’ come to rest. God has abandoned us, this country is doomed.”

Fantastic.  I’d like to think that by the end of Obama’s term, they’ll all realize that a black man can be as capable (or, in comparison to Obama’s predecessor, far more capable than) a white one, but I know better.  He could singlehandedly eliminate hunger, bring world peace, and personally capture and strangle bin Laden with his bare hands, and it would never be enough.

Friday Quote & Moose Blogging

This week’s quote is from the hilariously insane and over-the-top Andy Warhol’s Dracula:

It must be tonight! The girls are beautiful – they look so pure! But how do we get at them?

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s moose…
