An Item of Business:
In honor of my birthday, the deadline for voting in the big "Beef Pie Alamode Vs Stuffed Frankfurters" contest (Regrettable Food Project, Experiment #1) has been extended until noon Sunday. Here's your chance to show the right-wing jerks that this country has had enough of the Stuffed Frankfurters who pollute talk radio (and also show your support for our NATO allies) by voting for Beef Pie Alamode! Or, here's your chance to stick it to the liberal jerks who think they're TOO GOOD for the all-American frankfurter, by voting against their pie, which, in its very essence, sins against Nature and Nature's God, by putting beef where there should be apples, or at the very least, cherries. If you don't vote (via the comments section, email, or some form of chad), you lose all right to complain about anything, ever.
More crap tomorrow, when it's not my birthday.
Please Give Ann 14 Harvard Grad Students
In his latest exercise in crankiness, Harvard Lies, here's David Horowitz knocking Al Franken's book:
"And if you're just a regularly mean-spirited and ill-informed liberal who thinks that only some Republicans are racists and who likes to say 'Bill Clinton!' just to watch conservatives shoot steam out of their ears, you will still find the book amusing, especially if you inscribe it 'Thanks for all your help; Love, Al' and send to Bill O'Reilly as a birthday gift. But if you are a right-wing pundit who wasn't mentioned in it even ONCE, you probably won't like it one bit."
David goes on to deplore the fact that Franken got research assistance for the book from Harvard University grad students. And he DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO PAY FOR IT! Dave seems to believe that this shows the overwhelming liberal bias at our nation's universities, and adds:
Well, I can. I think it would be a great thing to do, and am thinking of funding it myself. I think it would go a little something like this:
Like I said, I would pay for the grad students. All Harvard has to do is supply the two-way mirrors and the electrodes.
