Space Villain

Oh, the pain! A couple of weeks ago I gloated that Tom DeLay seemed in denial, just because his website was spraying fluff about "support" for NASA and ignoring his bribery scandal. How adorably naive of me! Fortunately, this article from The Nation reveals the villain's true purpose:
He has established himself as the go-to guy on Capitol Hill regarding NASA. And given the way Washington works, this means he can influence how the agency carves up its $16 billion pie[...] "With NASA changing its spending priorities[...] there will be plenty of money going to start-up companies with no record of producing hardware, and there will be no way to measure results," says John Pike, director of "DeLay, if he wants, will be in charge of a free-for-all, with money flowing everywhere--mainly flying in the direction he directs." NASA, then, is another potential source of money and power for DeLay--if he survives his ethics troubles.

Do you remember what you said to me the day I met you
Like yesterday I still can hear your voice, you promised to be
Still in my life no matter what you had to do to be there
Well, it's been a while and here we are lookin' back on times that we shared

I remember we were in the park
Holdin' hands and you said to me
I'm the only thing you need
And I would make your life complete
If I said I'd be your [unintelligible]
You would stay with me forever
Boy, you never let me down
Through it all you're still around
Still around, yeah

Unborn To Be Wild


An e-mail from Soldier Of Superfrankenstein Goodrich hips us to Miss Poppy ("Spend your TRUE Christian Dollars at, where even your MONEY is saved!"), purveyor of a range of products that includes Unborn Baby Ornament - US Troop Model:
Protect our troops - from the womb to the war. What if the fetus you were going to abort would grow up to be a soldier bringing democracy to a godless dictatorship?

Plastic replica of an 11-12 week old fetus, 3" long, holding a firearm in its precious little hand, with an assortment of other military paraphernalia, encased in a translucent plastic ornament, with a patriotic yellow ribbon on top. Includes a metal ornament hanger. If only a womb were this safe, attractive and reasonably priced!
Miss Poppy links to the infamous Landover Baptist Church "Where the Worthwhile Worship. Unsaved Unwelcome," which in turn links to the notorious ("Sponsoring Partner: God Himself"). The White House stuff is pretty clear, but I've seen people argue over whether the Landover Baptists are kidding or not. Which means they're pretty funny. They're busy, too; you can try to click through all of their products and parodies, but you'll never make it.

A few more: their Girls' Abstinence Blog; their Boys' Abstinence Blog; and, non-Landoverly speaking, another good abstinence parody and the head-scratching Ex-Cardinal Ratzinger Fan Club. That last one looks kind of like a Landover site but, if it's meant to be funny, it's the dryest shit you've ever seen. And if it isn't, well, Andy Warhol had it right when he said, "The best parody is the thing itself." It was spotted by High-Ranking Soldier Of Superfrankenstein Chadwick.

The Uncanny Heidi MacDonald has the first picture of Superman from his new movie and all I can say is, what a belt buckle! Go look right now. Then come back. Please.

Knight Rider 122Damn everything but Knight Rider music. [Via]


Weird how one idea can be used to subvert or promote the same thing. Which disturbs you more? I like this sick Casey Weldon piece [Via]...

...but (and I've shown you this before) it's the McDonald's ad that really makes me want to pull my eyeballs out by the roots.

The Hotside Of Anger

Maybe it's the "15 year olds speaking of intercourse as if it is just another thing to do" or the "strange talk to justify immoral sex as if there is nothing wrong with it," or something else entirely, but The Upside of Anger seems to have put The Hot Parts Guy in a real mood:

"Who are you to tell me it is sinful to take pleasure in the demonstration of sin in and as entertainment!?" I am no one. But God is Someone. Someone who wrote the Rules. And if you have a problem with His Rules, take it up with Him. I cannot change the Rules.
Jesus, Hot Parts Guy. Take a pill.

Thou Shalt Not Pee

God's Guide To The Hot Parts--the web ministry that fights Hollywood smut by describing it with arousing frankness--posted its review of The Amityville Horror. Lots of good stuff in there, including The Hot Parts Guy's eeriest vision yet: seeing "Impudence/Hate" in "urination by a child."

Meanwhile, he recommends Sahara if you're freaky for "revealing swim wear" and "adults frolicking in revealing swim wear." But if you're more turned on by "cohabitation, repeatedly" and "frenzied co-stripping," then Fever Pitch is your meat!

Tom DeNy

I hate to kick someone the whole world's ganging up on--even if the victim is a skunk like Tom DeLay--not out of sympathy for the accused, but because anything most people are doing has got to be somehow wrong. However, it's always fun to spy on a cornered rat, so I went to his website.

Right at the top of the screen it said...

...which made me think I was about to read the dope on the most important thing happening right now in Tom DeLay's career:
DeLay Meets with NASA Administrator Nominee Griffin
DeLay, Griffin Agree on Bold New Vision for Space Exploration

WASHINGTON – Congressman Tom DeLay (R-Sugar Land) yesterday met with President Bush’s nominee for NASA Administrator, Dr. Michael Griffin, to discuss the direction of the agency under Griffin’s leadership.

“The president gave NASA a new mission, the most challenging ever attempted by mankind,” DeLay said. “With this daring comes great reward, and I am committed to continuing the fight to sell the president’s vision to my colleagues in Congress. With Dr. Griffin joining that fight, we can accomplish great things for NASA.”
Good luck with that, buddy.

Good One

His content tends to be comics, movies or politics related, his political allegiances being reminiscent of a 500-pound girl getting on the left side of a see-saw and launching a fetus into orbit.
That's me Jason's talking about; who says blogs aren't accurate?


Crap knows no barriers.


Attention Sploid: this is how you write a tabloid headline:


Jason's post reminded me how funny the Comics Curmudgeon is.

Agent Double 4 sends proof that Lois Lane and Superman are hip to popular music:

Elliott Mattice writes:
My friend Marvin Hoegle did a public access show and is trying and drum up some sponsors to advertise on the various episodes. He wanted me to post it on my server and see what people thought of it. He hosts the show under his gaming title "The Decimator" and uses the program to showcase his various prized collectables, some priceless. Marvin recently lost his job at the mall and was forced to move back home recently with his mom so if you have a few minutes check it out.
Indeed, you must check out Marvin Hoegle, The Decimator. Then you must forget him.


Rob The Big Bad Wolf seems to love comics and monsters, so, voila: Comic Monsters.


Darryl E. Bowles: your blog, Grumpy Old Man, is right on. (I'd like to write you back, but your e-mail evaporated & your comments system isn't working.)


A reader writes:
We must KEEP Tom Delay running the GOP in Congress, rather than let the Republicans throw him overboard, which is what they want. Right now, they can't accomplish anything, because of the DeLay delays.

They did it with Trent Lott.

They must not fool us twice.
Again, right on.

Kansas Hasn't Changed

The place hasn't gotten any friendlier since the people of Smallville ran Superboy out in 1967. Tuesday, they voted a gay marriage ban into their constitution. No wonder he moved to Metropolis; who in their right mind would stay in Smallville if they didn't have to?
