While I'm probably getting myself accused of being racist, I was never quite sure where to come out on the whole "Barack the Magic Negro" thing. On one hand, it was like, dude. You're a white guy passing out a CD to other white people with this song on it 'cause you think it's funny and you think they'll think it's funny. You're also a Republican, which puts you in with a group that -- fairly or unfairly -- is not exactly associated with racial tolerance and inclusiveness. Are you kidding me. How do you not expect that to go over poorly?

And while of course there was all the false indignation from white people, well some of them anyway, there were also a lot of black people who were like "whatever." So in the end, stupid white dude, no one cares. Let's move on.

I did find this to be an interesting take on the situation. Haha, fuck you liberals. Also, could there be a better name for an internet column? Robert Brockway: Word Puncher.

Larry King: negro.
A smattering of random crap for ya.

A webcomic I discovered a few weeks back that somehow I have not linked yet. Maybe cause it's just kinda okay-ish, but it does have its moments. Wonder what they'll do moving forward.

Ted Rall: badass.

Yeah, that's not a bad way to put it.

And finally, I complain, 'cause I've dealt with some stupid shit, mostly but not entirely of my own making, but I haven't gotten it as harsh as this guy. Yet. Damn.

At last our long national nightmare is finally over

I wonder which left-wing publication will be the first to use that after Tuesday. Or maybe it's better to ask which ones will be able to refrain. Either way, of course, The Onion was way out ahead when it came to milking that shit. Pretty fucked up just how accurate that headline was back in January of '01. Le sigh.

Anyway, in a few hours we'll be past all that shit and everything will immediately be kittens and roses. In honor of today's historic event, I offer this which I found online:


Man I totally gotta use that word more often. Anyway, here is a scarrily accurate list of dos and don'ts for guys with an unrequited crush. That's... Seriously that's just kinda disturbing how apropos that is. Anyway, another good list of advice here. About the only thing missing from the dos and don'ts list is DO make whiny blog posts about her. Speaking of which, I can tell you that it is extra nice to get that link from your own unrequited crush. Man, what a fuckin' racket that is.
