Ha! This is pretty funny: "On average, people who took the survey answered half the questions incorrectly, and many flubbed even questions about their own faith." NYTimes (09.28.10):
"That finding might surprise some, but not Dave Silverman, president of American Atheists, an advocacy group for nonbelievers that was founded by Madalyn Murray O’Hair. 'I have heard many times that atheists know more about religion than religious people,' Mr. Silverman said. 'Atheism is an effect of that knowledge, not a lack of knowledge. I gave a Bible to my daughter. That’s how you make atheists.'" Atheists Outdo Some Believers in Survey on ReligionPrepare to be smitten, Mr. Silverman.

For The Birds
O’Donnell wins in Delaware. Local GOP honked off. Washington Post (09.15.10):
"Here’s what Delaware Republican Party chairman Tom Ross told me last night: 'I could buy a parrot and train it to say, "tax cuts," but at the end of the day, it’s still a parrot, not a conservative.'" The Tea Party: From rebellion to absurdityUPDATE: Zowie. This could turn out to be one ugly election for Christine: "(O)ur polling suggests with O'Donnell's victory that Coons will win more Republicans than any other Democratic Senate candidate in the country." And friends, that's gotta hurt.

Oh that Franklin! CNN (08.19.10), via TPM:
"The seed of Islam is passed through the father like the seed of Judaism is passed through the mother. He was born a Muslim, his father gave him an Islamic name,' Graham told John King." Franklin Graham: 'President's Problem Is That He Was Born A Muslim'And to think people actually take superstitious claptrap like this seriously. Quod erat demonstrandum: black football jerseys.

A Lonely Place Indeed
Bullshit walks. David Boies v. Tony Perkins. Face The Nation (08.08.10):
"'But when they come into court and they have to support those opinions and they have to defend those opinions under oath and cross-examination, those opinions just melt away. And that's what happened here. There simply wasn't any evidence, there weren't any of those studies.'" Same-Sex Marriage Decision: "Far From Over""'There weren't any empirical studies. That's just made up. That's junk science. It's easy to say that on television. But a witness stand is a lonely place to lie. And when you come into court you can't do that.'"

Resentment And Bitterness
The Tea Party. Not just about politics anymore. As if it ever was. WISER, via Think Progress:
"(E)ven as we account for conservatism and partisanship, support for the Tea Party remains a valid predictor of racial resentment." Multi-state survey of Race & Politics"(S)upport for the Tea Party makes one 25 percent more likely to be racially resentful than those who don't support the Tea Party." Just ask Rush.

L'indignation Du Jour
Sharon does Twitter. Wonkette (08.05.10), via Crooks and Liars:
"Why did Harry Reid vote in favor of giving cocaine to monkeys? Doesn’t he know that this is an issue specifically reserved to the states, by the 10th amendment?" Why Is Harry Reid Giving His Monkey Friends All The Good Drugs?Wonkette continues: "This research was highlighted in a report that John McCain and Jim Coburn wrote about wasteful stimulus spending, since the only thing those guys hate more than science is paying for science." The research in question is being done by the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. They are studying cocaine addiction and the incidences of relapse. They weren't going to use monkeys at first, but they found out there are a few pesky ethical issues with having humans as subjects.

Give me the news; got a bad case of wingnut blues. Via The Washington Monthly. Man, how'd you like this summbitch Pezzi dating your daughter? UPDATE: Jesus! It gets even worse. This guy is one creeped out dude. UPDATED UPDATE (from The Editors) :
"Say what you will about 'Dr.' Kevin Pezzi. Laugh at his many bizarre antics and delusional grandeur if it makes you feel better, basking in the warmth emanating from your elitist hearth of effetery. But I can tell you first hand (two even!) that his penis enlargement techniques are the real deal. My junk weighs a ton now yo."Can't be all bad then, eh?
