PC In My Pocket

So the thought occurs: Now that we’re seeing 720p and even 1080p displays on mobile devices, with more and more powerful CPUs and GPUs to drive them, and now that the latest version of Windows straddles the tablet and PC worlds… it’s suddenly not at all inconceivable that I could someday soon have a 7″ device that fits in a cargo pocket and can do literally everything my laptop can do.

Technically Not Hypocrisy

I mean, as long as Brownie is consistent in his support for slow and ineffectual responses to natural disasters, then who am I to criticize?

Friday Quote & Porcupine Blogging

This week’s quote is from Willie Dynamite, a blaxploitation flick starring Gordon from Sesame Street(!) as a bad-ass pimp:

Just say, I’m a kind of a consumer protection agency. A sort of a Ralph Nader for hookers. So, you listen to me, Mr. Willie Dynamite. I’m declaring war on you. Ya dig it? I’m gonna make you number one, minus one, which equals zero.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s talking Halloween porcupines…

Something To Look Forward To

Apparently Paul Ryan’s plan for Social Security is awfully similar to Pinochet’s, which didn’t end up working out so well.  That’s why it’s so important to re-elect Obama, because he’ll fight to keep Social Security intact.  Or not.

The Romney Plan

As I understand it from last night’s debate, Mitt’s strategy to create jobs is to create jobs, and his strategy to balance the budget is to balance the budget.  It’s brilliant in its simplicity!

Now he just has to turn that genius to winning the election by winning the election.

Friday Quote & Sort-Of-Shark Blogging

This week’s quote is from the Ingmar Bergman horror movie(!) Hour Of The Wolf:

The end is near. The springs will dry up. And other fluids will moisten your white thighs. So it has been decided.

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

Tell Me Again About That Republican Culture Of Life

Apparently abortion is only okay if you wait until the fetus is old enough to be a rebellious pain in the ass.

I also like this right-wing lunatic’s attempt to draw parallels between liberalism and Islam, when fundamentalist Islam and fundamentalist Christianity have such similar contempt for gays and women and absolute intolerance for all other beliefs.

Friday Quote & Anteater Blogging

This week’s quote is from SLC Punk!, probably the first ever Matthew Lillard movie where I have not wanted to punch him in the face:

I am an ant, looking up with great intensity at a human being. I wait to be squashed by you.

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

$716 Billion

By my count, Mitt Romney, Compassionate Defender Of The Elderly, accused Obama of cutting $716 billion out of Medicare six times in last night’s debate, and Obama never made the slightest effort to rebut it, or even to point out that the Ryan budget plan does the exact same thing.  That’s probably going to hurt Obama the most, but overall he didn’t seem to really respond to Romney so much as just recite whatever talking points were in the general vicinity of the question.

Really really terrible, inept performance.  Romney’s a liar and he came across as a condescending bully, but at least he showed confidence and conviction in what he was saying, and didn’t let anything go unchallenged.

Of course, Dubya’s first debate performance in 2004 was probably one of the worst of all time, and he still managed to win anyway.  And Obama isn’t nearly as terrible or disliked as Bush was, while Mitt is even stiffer and tone-deafer than Kerry was, so ultimately it may not even matter.  Unless he fails to show up at any of the debates.

Todd Akin: Even Crazier Than You Think

He has got to be the craziest Republican Senate candidate I’ve seen since, well, 2010.  My personal favorite is his claim that abortion doctors are giving abortions to women who aren’t even pregnant.

So it’s not just us progressives: Actual conservative explains why Obamacare is a conservative program, and pretty much the exact opposite of a socialist government takeover of healthcare.

GOP Proves Itself Right On Voter Fraud

You see?  Voter fraud (or at least registration fraud) really is a thing!  So what if it’s the Republicans who are perpetrating it instead of ACORN?
