Maybe Leave the Governing to Sodomites and Infidels

Memes growing in response to Rick Perry‘s latest wtf?!? ad, wherein he declares, “There’s something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.” The Partisans have the best answer, noting it wasn’t gay or atheist presidents that gave us Iraq, the financial crisis and mortgages turning into toilet paper.
“It took some God-fearing, vagina-penetrators to pull that off….I’m a godless heathen, and I approved this message.”

Yes, it’s a terrible shame that the entertainment industry isn’t
making billions of dollars instead just millions. I feel for them,
I really do. (sarcasm)

The Unauthorized Autobiography – Julian Assange Scottish publisher Canongate approached Wikileaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange to publish his biography. They acquired the rights and hired novelist Andrew O’Hagan to ghost write. After several late night meetings with Assange, O’Hagan penned down his story and submitted it to him to read the result. Assange was not happy with the result as it was too much biography and not enough politics and pulled back from the project. Canongate decided to publish it anyway as they thought they did justice to Assange and his cyberpunk movement. Well, what can we say? The book is on the shelves, read it and decide for yourself.

Ron Suskind The hidden history of Wall Street and the White House comes down to a single, powerful, quintessentially American concept: confidence. Both centers of power, tapping brazen innovations over the past three decades, learned how to manufacture it. Until August 2007, when that confidence finally began to crumble. In this gripping and brilliantly reported book, Pullitzer Prize-winning journalist Ron Suskind tells the story of what happened next, as Wall Street struggled to save itself while a man with little experience and soaring rhetoric emerged from obscurity to usher in “a new era of responsibility.” It is a story that follows the journey of Barack Obama, who rose as the country fell, and offers the first full portrait ! of his tumultuous presidency.
