Bomb Throwing Pacifist
If you took that happy, smiling guy from the box of Quaker Oats, handed him a bottle of gin and a rifle, and pissed him off to a point where he decided he wasn't going to take it anymore, you'd get a little something like this.

We interrupt your broadcast...
Beofre I finish writing up my post on absurdly terrible conservative Catholic blogs, I just have to get this to press. Talking Points Memo has the story.
No honor among vote scammers!
This is actually kinda funny. Rich Lowry just filed this little squib at the Corner. "More ballots cast [on the House leadership vote] than there are members. Re-voting now...."
Yeah go figure. The Republicans are now so corrupt that they can't even conduct clean and fair elections within their own ranks! I'm with JM on this one. They definately should have gotten Jimmy Carter to montor the elections over on the Hill. Oh well, only one thing left to do...blame the Democrats!
-- House Republicans on Thursday elected U.S. Rep. John Boehner of Ohio as majority leader. He upset Rep. Roy Blunt of Missouri in a 122-109 vote on the second ballot. Rep. John Shadegg of Arizona dropped out of the running after the first ballot.
And that's another thing. Call it a cheap shot, but how much more homoerotic can you get than two guys named "Blunt" and "Boehner" (pronounced BONE-er) duking it out, no doubt naked and oiled up in the manly way of our ancient Spartan ancestors? I mean, all we need is a third representative named "Dick Stiffwood" to add to the mix and we've have ourselves a Right Said Fred music video.
