More link lovin, this time for Alex Palazzo
And some for the first SkepDude (???) I’ve seen an article from on SkepChick.
In the interest of skepticism and intellectual honesty, I do have to denounce two of Sam Ogden’s points: March madness is NOT “the single greatest sporting event in the history of mankind,” and Fred Phelps is NOT “pure evil”. He’s no more evil than any other bible thumper, he just believes in more in the inerrancy of the bible than most. In his own fucked-up way he’s a better warrior for christ than most. And he’s much better at showing how bad a thing that is to be.
And I like to see my sentiments repeated by others, just as much as the next guy does.
Roy Zimmerman’s a genius, buy his albums.
He found and posted this brilliant essay “Why I will not rally around the President” just days after 9/11.
I wish I had known at the time how desperately important it would have been (not that we’d have changed teh president’s mind, but at least I wouldn’t feel bad now) to speak up more so then than I did.
Yup, Wil Wheaton is the shit.
Guess he’s been going on Fox News to spew silliness. I don’t think the Fox News audience needed any more than it already was getting.
Ben Stein is stupid.
Bill O’Reilly is a jackass.
And for the record, I’ve been saying “George W. Bush is an idiot” since 1999.
I’d written up a pretty fun note about the Bush Administration lying about whether his watch was stolen in Albania. I even posted it. Then I started to feel guilty: surely there had to be another camera view.
Well, somebody found more footage and it turns out I have to admit I was wrong.
There, that wasn’t so hard, was it?
He’s still an asshat.
