I'm starting to respect the Westboro Baptist PR folks (despite hating them in a very un-Jesus-y way), because between the "bottle of pills" line and calling Radiohead "freak monkeys with mediocre tunes", they do know how to A) grab headlines and B) turn a memorable phrase. Well-played, crazy PR team, well-played.

Yes, Joe Biden, who became a Senator when President Obama was a 12-year-old, and who started chairing the Foreign Relations & Judiciary Committees before Barack even married Michelle, would be totally unprepared to lead the executive branch. Holy hell, I can't believe we were so scared of this bearded moron for so many years.

Liberace died at 68. Rock Hudson at 60. And uh, if he's talking about AIDS and stuff...they, like, have medicines and stuff for that now. Although I guess if, like this guy, you're apparently living in the 1950s, perhaps not.

Oh wait! You guys, I just asked my gay roommate about this. His response: "yeah, you're pretty much dead to the gay community once you're that age." I'm sure that someone who would make a statement like that would be well-connected to the gay community, so obviously that's gotta be what he meant.

Odds are that his password is probably something as stupid as "12345" or "password". Unless, you know, he learned a lesson from all those voicemails his hacks hacked.

Unsurprisingly, the fake Rupert Murdoch feed can't even dream of being as blithely, unthinkingly evil as the actual Rupert Murdoch is. But for those who enjoy that sort of thing, I do think @RupertMurdochPR is rather well done.

For once, it's a good day to be from Kansas. Do I have to be gay and/or black to use the phrase "You go, girl!"? Because it seems appropriate here.

This girl goes to my high school alma mater and please just allow me a moment of pride for the fact that kids there still have brains. Go Lancers!

I have now been reading Wonkette long enough that I can tell a Ken Layne piece from the title alone. And sweet baby Jesus, I am never disappointed when I clicky that clicky. Godspeed, Ken, you are the 21st century Upton Sinclair on the same acid that Hunter S. Thompson took.
