First Human Remains Found In Israel

400,000 year old remains were found in Israel which is older than the 200,000 year old remains found in Africa.
I find this fascinating.
The Garden of Eden was in or nearby Israel. Not to say this would disprove evolution, because it wouldn't. But it does make for interesting arguing.

May I Make a Suggestion?

Check out the film Exit Through the Gift Shop. It's a highly entertaining documentary on the rise of street art.

I'm Putting in My Resume

I've decided that since all the writers of The Walking Dead were fired, I'd go ahead and throw my writing hat into the ring. Here's some of what I've come up with. Let me know what you think.

"You don't see zombies worrying about who marries who based on sexual preference."

"There are no rich or poor zombies. All zombies are equal. We could learn a lot from them."

"Look out! Zombie!"

"If these zombies don't kill us, surely Global Warming will."

"I think we'll finally be safe here inside the walls of Gitmo. Who'd have thought such a horrible place could redeem itself like this?"

"George Bush and I created these zombies to fight Al Qaeda! How could we have been so foolish?!"

"Madame President, the zombies have breached the bunker!"

"Somebody get me outta this crazy zombie apocalypse!"

If not for the strange inclusion of the Julian Assange segment (which I get, but am not sure it applies to the overall theme of the piece) this would probably be the best thing I read all year.

Sometimes I like Ann

and sometimes I don't.
This time I don't

Her argument is childish bordering on bigotry. For me, I don't know what the right answer is to DADT. I fear that since it's an all volunteer military it might turn off some enlistments if there is an open gay policy, but I also don't think the military isn't going to be "gayer" because I don't think gays will be running to the recruitment office to sign up now that it's open.
But one thing I do fear the most is that if a gay soldier is passed up for promotion for whatever reason, complaints will be filed for discrimination. You know that will happen.

I Never Heard About This Man Before

And I applaud a movie that brings his story to light.
But I know in the eyes of the haters that while the misdeeds of a few priests casts a dark shadow over the entire catholic church, the goodness of this priest will only be seen as a goodly man who just so happens to be a priest.
For the record, if a muslim cleric/preacher/Imam were to show a similar story (not that I am saying there isn't. I just haven't heard of one yet, but I do welcome it) I would be the first to applaud him and maybe even have a little hope for the cult of Islam.

The Onion Strikes Again!

My mistake, this article about a Toy-guns-for-toys exchange appears to be legit. And thank God somebody's doing something about whatever the problem here is. Let's comb the article and see if we can't figure this shit out.

Yesterday, younger children ran through a rubber obstacle course while officials told the older children the story of a 14-year-old boy who police nearly shot after they confused his air pistol with a real gun.

Way to go, cops. The best you could come up with is a story where a kid was almost shot while brandishing a toy gun? The media, after school specials and primetime courtroom dramas have led me to believe there is no shortage of incidents where cops are gunning down innocent kids with bright orange squirt guns. At the very least you could bust out the scene from Die Hard where the Twinkie loving fat cop from Family Matters talks about shooting a kid. Just weak.

Hall said she had no regrets. The 26-year-old mother of six said she has been trying to wean her only son off toy guns for years. In kindergarten, he brought a pop gun to school and shot at a classmate when the child refused to return his toy truck.

Oh, now I get it. The real danger is that if your 5 year-old carries a toy gun, our overreactive nanny society will have them expelled from school or taken away from you. Well, that is a grave set of circumstances. Thanks a lot, Columbine. I guess those kids really did leave their mark on the world. Mission accomplished! Have we built a memorial to Klebold and Harris yet for all the apparent good their actions have ultimately achieved? Long overdue.

“I tell them that this is for a good cause,’’ she said.

And that good cause again? Are they taking all that chewed up toy gun plastic and building jungle gyms for third world orphans of the American War on Terror? Or is this just another case of ignorant parents saying what they think sounds right when the media jams a recorder in their face? But hey, if just one child isn't almost shot by police, it's worth it. Merry Christmas!

Cities Be Bankruptin'

Here's a list of US cities on the verge of bankruptcy. Way to own that shit, California! The only surprise here is that these cities are on a list of could go bankrupt cities when they already appear to be bankrupt. Fuckin' semantics, I guess.

Sorry Blogust, Garotsuva is Magical!

It can be anything you want it to be. This is why I've had a big problem all along. No matter what happens, scientists twist it to fit into their ever changing climate change model. It's getting warmer? Global Warming! Colder? Also, Global Warming! More hurricanes? Global Warming! No hurricanes? Global Warming! The Great Barrier Reef is dying? Global Warming! The Great Barrier Reef is thriving? Global Warming!

The only way to disprove Global Warming is if the world somehow manages to never end. I can't wait for that.

Women Should Be Very Affraid Of Islam

Actress in Harry Potter was beatin and threatened by her father and brother (the two people in her life who I assume would want to keep her safe) for "meeting" a hindu.
But in their eyes they are keeping her safe, right? Or are they just worried about their bullshit muslim honor?
To be fair, a report came out last week that Hindu man performed an honor killing on his daughter in India for the same thing, but it's the degree at which it happens amongst muslims that I find disgusting.

Portland Is Stuck In The 90's

Garotzuva!

Just sayin...

England's Coldest December On Record

Okay, Hollywood. Sometimes You Get it Right.

So, for a while now people have been on my case to check out Showtime's good guy serial killer show, Dexter, but I just hadn't been able to bring myself to do it. There are a couple of reasons for this.

One reason is that I had a similar idea years ago and obviously the creators of Dexter illegally entered my brain and mined it for sweet ideas, kind of like whoever went ahead and started manufacturing window scrubbers that had a ball joint for cleaning the inside of your car windshield. Time for me to invest in a tinfoil hat.

Another reason is that I'm kind of a douche. You know, if I didn't discover it on my own then I'm not going to give anyone else the satisfaction of turning me onto it. It took me a long time to check out Firefly and The Wire for the exact same stupid reason.* And the way people lord the amazingness of their shows over you can be a turn off as well (See Arrested Development, a show I actually liked but never loved based solely on the people who did love it).

Anyway, I just finished the first season of Dexter and it was pretty great. It's gruesome and twisted, but the writing is great. The characters are lovingly fleshed out and the story is extremely engaging. It might start to suck as the seasons progress, but I'm hooked now and will probably ride it out to the end. You should check it out if you're looking for a show to obsess over for a while.

*Sometimes I'm right. People still sing me the praises of Mad Men, but I watched two seasons of that show and it's just plain terrible, I don't care what anybody says.

Both Of The New Comic Book Movies Look Cheesy To Me

But what the hell do I know?

Scott Pilgrim vs. Michael Cera and WTF, Walking Dead?

Pilgrim's First, Of Course

I'm not going to get too heavily into it, but the movie version of Scott Pilgrim had no heart. The thing about the comics was that I was literally blown away (not literally) by how much depth and heart they had. In the movie it was apparently enough to tell the audience how everybody felt without showing anything but flashy CGI. At the end of the film I was terrified that they were going to completely change the outcome of the original story, and it probably would have made more sense in regards to the characters the filmmakers had so thinly created. It was visually and audibly stimulating, but guess what? So were all the Resident Evil movies. Also, do you think this...

Can possibly manage to come across as this?

Boooooo!

The Walking Dud

As for the Walking Dead, every time I have a conversation with anyone about this show I find myself defending it based on nothing more than the possibility it could get better and that I really just want to like it. The truth is that the pacing is terrible, the dialogue is stilted, the social agenda is unbearable and the direction is unclear. I defend this thing because I like the comic and I'm not going to do it anymore. Until this show earns it, I refuse to take it seriously.

Thanks, Hollywood. You suck.

Ugh, This is Awful.

Hollywood Earns a Short Stay of Execution

Just as I was about to write a big rant on how Hollywood fucked up Scott Pilgrim and The Walking Dead and pretty much mangles everything I like, I ran across this mash-up of the films of 2010 and it's so cool that it softened me for now. I know that it's bullshit, but it's pretty, pretty bullshit. Enjoy.

Geez, England! What is Wrong With You? Oh, Nevermind.

When I saw this in the Daily Mail I immediately assumed it was another case of the UK bowing to Muslim pressure. My bad, it was us. Lame.

Liking The New Shark Look

and here is my contribution. Egypt blames it's recent shark attacks on Jew Sharks.


Hollywood Rules!

Again, no surprises here. Way to go, MTV. Sometimes I'm not surprised people want to wipe us off the face of the Earth.

I don't want to get into a big thing about how reality televsion is cited in the Bible as a sign of the End of Days or anything, but I'm almost certain it is. You know, if you believe in that sort of thing.

A Travesty!

Global Warming? Well, it's just not 'doing it' right now. No surprises here for me, but "climatologists" are stumped:

'The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment, and it is a travesty that we can't.'

What's truly sad is that it appears these scientists have actually convinced themselves of their own righteousness when this whole thing was just supposed to be about the money.

My Official Wikileaks Post

I wasn't too interested in posting anything about wikileaks. It's fun to read some of the updates, but overall I didn't have an opinion one way or another, at least none I wanted to share...
until now.
While listening to conservative propaganda radio today I came to realize this: it's not what wikileaks exposed that is interesting, but what it hasn't exposed.
Where is the 9/11 conspiracy for the truthers?
Where is the Halliburton files telling us how Cheney drove us to war?
How about forged WMD files?
Phantom Plane in the Pentagon?
Valerie Plame?
Wiretapping?
Torture?
Nothing like that?
Huh, sorta wished I could read about "the real truth the government is keeping from us."

The Walking Dead Finale

No spoilers. It was a pretty decent episode. Had some more questionable character motivations which I hope the new writing staff can do something about in the next season, but all in all, it wasn't terrible. There is one plot point (and a terrible expository line in case you're too stupid to figure out what the writers are getting at) that is so ludicrous it will be hard for some of you not to turn off the TV (it was for me), but the episode doesn't harp on it too much, so just bear through it and you should be good. Also, they answer a question that I know has been gnawing at me for quite some time now. I can't wait to see what this show does with a full slate of episodes and new writers next season.

My Friday Vid

I enjoyed this.

Tired Ole Rant.

Okay, it's been discussed her before, but I seriously need to vent. I try very hard to stay away from the political arena on Facebook, because I know that I have an eclectic group of friends who fall into every possible category of political affiliation or non-affiliation. It amazes me how many people do not show the same courtesy. I'm sure that they believe that since we are friends, we most likely agree in our world views. In fact, I imagine some of them would cut ties with me completely if they knew the truth. And yes, it is entirely my left wing friends who do this. They are calling me stupid to my face. Rude motherfuckers.

And while we're on the subject of Facebook, I'm ready to strangle the next person who implores me to copy and paste a Facebook status for blah, blah whatever or to change my profile pick because it's gay 'cat in a sweater month' or some other such bullshit. Fucking Facebook is stupid. I hate most people enough already without it.

This Girl Is Hard Up For Another Role

Jennifer Grey says it feels "Damn Good" to beat Bristol Palin.
Reall, Jennifer, really? Does it really feel damn good to beat a chick 1/2 your age who hasn't done a damn thing except being the daughter of the one person The Left is most terrified of, or are you looking to pander to liberal hollywood?
To be fair, the host couched the question like this? "Obama and Biden defeated Palin. How do you feel about defeating a Palin?"
Just remember, all, McCain was the man running for president not Palin.
And he would have gotten killed if it weren't for Palin.
The left knows that. They are scared of this woman and so reminding everyone that she was once defeated helps them to sleep at night... but not very well.

Nerd Alert

In the interest of keeping this blog heavy on the nerdery, I thought I'd pass along that I just finished the Scott Pilgrim comics and actually found them to be surprisingly awesome. Yeah, they're definitely hipstery and whatnot, but by the end I was kind of blown away by how much I enjoyed the characters and was bummed to see them go. The content winds up being rather insightful vis a vis relationships and self awareness and all as well. Anyway, you can get them pretty cheap on Amazon, so check 'em out if you're into that sort of crap. Now I'll go ahead and watch the movie and let Michael Cera ruin the whole experience for me.

I'm Proud To Say I Haven't Seen Any Movies By Ashley Judd

Because buying tickets for her movies would help support the mass rape of my eyes and ears.

oh to be rich and full of guilt Then I too could take personal responsibility for the lives of people in Congo. My self importance would be through the roof and I would show a new swagger in my step. A swagger I'm sure you'll all notice.
I can hear it now:
"Hey Blogust, you look good. What have you been doing with yourself these days?"
"oh nothing. Just slaughtering and raping thousands of people with a mere swipe of my credit card. Yeah, that's right. I have that kind of power. Now out of my way, slave, so that I can go on-line and brood about it. Oh and by the way, the laptop I will be using to write my post will result in the rape of a grandma, a grandpa and their dog. Boo-Yaw!"

In her words:
"And that is how I, on my way to Democratic Republic of Congo to educate myself first hand about conflict minerals and advocate for a clean supply chain, am at the same time utterly complicit. My electronics, received as gifts or purchased, profit armed militias and support slavery. I am financing mass rape as I enjoy these ridiculously Global North ultra-efficiencies and conveniences, for large scale rape is the preferred predation mining interests use to humiliate and terrify local populations, in order to control resource areas. The UN notes that virtually every mine in DRC is militarized. This means little to no tin, tantalum, and tungsten is mined free of brutal exploitation, extortion, violence, rape, rape, rape."

Here is the link to the latest one, but I strongly suggest you go throught the archives. Fair warning, though, they are explicit. Example:

I'm not going to lie, though, I was not nearly as pleased with last night's episode as I was with the first. There was enough awesome to make it good, but I seriously hope a couple of the characters get fleshed out a bit or eaten soon. There was a little too much cliche and suspect motivation to go around.

Trying To Resist The Urge...

...to dump about about half my friends on facebook after yesterdays results. Not because I don't like em anymore, but I can't keep reading their posts. Maybe I will just hide em instead.

Hopeless?

Just a little free thinking...

Considering every position in the CA government is blue, I'm wondering if it its really worth staying here? Within the next 10 years or so I see extreme taxation, government intrusion, and a much higher cost of living in CA.

Before anything changes positively here the Dems will have to completely mess this state up, and I'm not sure I wanna stay for all the fun.

Or the Dems will mess everything up and the loons that agree with them won't think there's a problem, and it will just continue.

On the other hand, there's no money for the mess of government funded plans that the Dems always want. They will choose industries, they will tax everything, they will continue to pursue their (unreachable) utopian view at a very high cost, but there will be no money to fund it.

Just having a hard time trying to view the future here.

A Little Something...

...to take your mind off of Boxer and Brown. I give you Commando: The Musical!

The Good and the Bad

First the good: The country sent a strong message to the Obama Administration that this flouting of the desires of the people will not stand. Some say the GOP taking back the House will lead to gridlock. Well, gridlock is better than the road we were on. Maybe in a couple of years we can get things flowing the right way. Or at least in the right general direction.

Now the bad: While the rest of the country pushed back on the Hope and Change administration, California continued to send a clear message of her own. That message? "We have no clear concept of the value of the dollar!" or "Don't think it can get any worse? Guess again. Jerry Brown, ladies and gentlemen!"

I'm amazed Prop 19 didn't pass here. Everyone is obviously stoned out of their gords. That's not to say I'm even against the legalization of marijuana, I just think it might be a good idea to have an actual plan to deal with it if we do. But it was close, and it won't be long before they make this happen. Hell, this is California, they might even sue to get their way. After all, nothing you disagree with is constitutional anymore (state motto). This morning on the local Fox station they brought in two people to talk about either side of the Prop 19 discussion. One was for it and the other was for it. Seriously, the guy who was against it wants legalization, he just doesn't want people who need it paying taxes. It's an extremely valid point, but couldn't the local news find one single person who was flat out against it? I guess they didn't want to. What else is new?

Oh, and let's not forget the great: So long, Nancy Pelosi, you batshit crazy super bitch. Back to the grave with you!!!

The Walking Dead?

In a word, amazing. I can't even begin to say how happy I was with this first episode. They stayed close to the source material to start, but added some very real pathos at points that I felt weren't quite there in the comic. The actor who played Rick Grimes nailed it in my opinion.

My concern, however, is with Rick's wife Lori and Rick's partner Shane. Their presence in the first episode felt forced and I was less pleased with their portrayal's. The guy they picked to play Shane just does not work at all so far, and I worry that the love triangle there might last longer than I care to give a shit about it. They say the show goes in some pretty different directions than the comic, and the most likely changes will probably be in regard to which characters get killed off, because TV audiences (and Blogust) grow too attached to characters and storylines.

Still, so far so good.

T-Minus 3 Days

...and counting until the premiere of The Walking Dead. Here are the shows thoroughly disappointing opening credits.



I say thoroughly disappointing because I've already shown you all the amazing opening credits a mere fan put together. However, it doesn't surprise me that they'd go with this. First off, Frank Darabont says the story will veer off from the comics at one point, so to tie the two together would just cause the fanboys to cry about it. More. I mean cry about it more. More importantly, however, no studio exec would ever have the balls to openly advertise that this series is adapted from a comic. Fanboys will watch no matter what, but America in general would probably not take this seriously if they knew the truth. Still, the other opening ruled. I can't wait to see how this series is fucked up. How many episodes before someone has sex with a zombie? How did Global Warming and our dependency on fossil fuels contribute to the zombie apocalypse? Are the zombies some sort of allegory for mindles Christian Fundamentalists? George Bush zombie? There are just so many different ways, and Hollywood just can't help themselves.

On The Other Hand

Though I don't believe gay marriage is marriage and calling gay marriage, marriage doesn't make it marriage. (sorta like this knew law that allows kids to pick their own gender. Just because they are allowed to call themselves the opposite sex doesn't make them the opposite sex)

this on the other hand I am more agreeable with. I was worried that if gays were in the military openly, people wouldn't enlist. Maybe it's no big deal.

If Iran Gets The Bomb

Michael Tottens latest post is pretty interesting.
I mean it's hard getting into the prediction game, but his guest points out scenarios that are eye opening. Why would Iran want the bomb? Well, from I gather, it's not to threaten U.S. and Israel directly. Not like they sit around with their finger on the button, but instead to gain enough leverage in the area that people will listen to their demands and not ours. In other words not so much to start a war, but enough to earn respect. Just read and you will see what I mean.

My favorite quote is this one where his guest hints that Iran isn't opposed to fighting per se
"Obviously, though, they have an idealogical interest here, and they're willing to fight Israel to the last Lebanese Shiite, but it's an open question how much they'd be willing to sacrifice themselves directly."

An Article Enjoyable To The Very Last Word

And when I say enjoyable I mean it will piss you off! It starts off with sympathy for Juan Williams, but then rightly points out how his firing is poetic justice since Juan has been supporting bullshit liberal institutions and ideologies for many years. The very same ideology that ultimately got him fired.
The writer later goes into great detail outlining NPR's so called 2% support coming from the taxpayers while the majority of their support comes from their stations. Those stations, the author points out, are themselves public and they get the majority of their money from the CPB-Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The CPB is a private "non-profit" which is code for being a company that receives taxpayer money but the public support is in a sense laundered from the word public to private.
Give it a read.
now watch and enjoy Charles Krauthammer.
Zing! He is so good in this bit I had to watch it more than once. I mean it's fun watching the others stammer stutter worse than Charles. Stuttering is something he can't help and now they too can't help it, but for a totally different reason.
I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF THIS STORY!
Now read this.
An article that hints at the firing of Vivian Schiller. I mean it would only be fair.

Mr. Charles Krauthammer
Don't you just love him?

This Is Just Freakin Great

A shark attack killing a 19 kid happened this morning near Vandenberg. Now everytime I'm floating in the cove I'm going to be thinking about those effing things.

I know this song will be overplayed on the radio, but I'm posting it anyway. I use to love Soundgarden and it's nice to hear them go back to their 'Louder Than Love' days.

Everyone's a Bigot.

So, here's an article about that dude getting canned from NPR for saying he was scared muslims on planes. This is the part that confuses me:

The Atlantic's Andrew Sullivan wrote Wednesday morning that Williams' statement about fearing Muslims on planes is an example of bigotry. "What if someone said that they saw a black man walking down the street in classic thug get-up," Sullivan wrote. "Would a white person be a bigot [if] he assumed he was going to mug him?'

So, I'm going to assume that the answer he is expecting here is that yes, that white person is a bigot for assuming a black dude dressed like a thug was going to mug him. If I were in that situation I'd call it erring on the side of caution, but if Andrew Sullivan would like to call me a bigot, so be it. For the record, if I saw a scary lookin' white dude walking down the street, I'd probably assume he posed some kind of threat as well, but I'm well aware that that only makes me a pussy.

This Is Just Great

Not only does the First Lady beat down the American spirit with her negativity about its people and its history, but now Michelle has gone and carved out the earth's heart. Has she no shame?

Seriously, doesn't that picture look like it came from the movie Apocalpyto?

This Is Painful To Watch

Ok the story goes like this. Jonah Goldberg is conducting an interview on c-span. The girl, who is named Helen, talks first and she goes on expalining why she believes this and that and who she admires and who she doesn't and yadda yadda yadda. Normal mumbo jumbo you would find on c-span, right?
Then comes the dudes turn and he doesn't really talk about politics at all. I mean he sorta does, but not really. Instead he starts talking about the previous speaker, Helen. And believe me, it's not good. We all get to find out how he and Helen were once an item. We also learn that she is an awful evil whore who loves to see people suffer and a whole bunch of other shit that I can't remember right now because I was to busy sticking my fingers in my ears and humming loudly so as to not be embarrassed.
During the entire rant, Jonah Goldberg is doing this pathetic laugh of embarrassment sorta thing because he can't believe what is happening. And it does happen, for like 4 minutes. No shit, I am not kidding.

I Could Use A New Watch

Hey, my Blog-ust brothers and sisters! So, the 25th will mark my 38th year and I know you're all probably grinding those brain gears trying to figure out what to get the blogger who has everything. Well, fear not. I don't want you all to expend another micron of brain power on the question. Here is what I want. You may want to band together and make the purchase or one of you could pick it up, while the rest of you work on the proper watch related accessories. A mansion. A yacht. A Rolls...etc. Thank you in advance, I don't deserve to have such fine people in my life. Cheerio!

Glacier Embracing Suits


Stay tuned for glacier embracing pornos to be released on DVD and Blu-Ray. Fabulous titles such as 'H2O: An Erotic Threesome', 'Hey, Who Invited the Polar Bear?' and my favorite 'Cherry Slurpee' are just the "tip" of the iceberg.

I Can't Believe I Am Writing A Post About The View

I'm sure you have all heard by now that Goldberg and Behar walked off there show after O'Reilly called the 9/11 muslims... wait for it... muslims. It's funny cause I walk off the set of The View every single day by not turning it on my T.V. And if by accident it does come on, I scream, throw my hands up in the air and immediately leave the room. Similar to how these ladies behaved.

Oh and the reason I linked to the hotair post is because they make a good point about how Behar is willing to sit with Truthers, but not willing to sit with people who call muslim terrorists, muslims. Actually I sorta agree with them on one thing. Calling them muslims is inaccurate. I would have preferred O'Reilly to have called them what they really are and that is Islamofascists, but hey, whatever. Also the video of Laura Ingraham pointing out how Behar loves to mock catholics is pretty sweet too so make sure you watch that.

This is Not a Joke

Police want to start ticketing people for not locking their cars. Best line ever?

Police say the proposal isn't designed to punish the forgetful but to anger people into remembering.

Yep, best line ever.

Must Be a Trap.

Makes too much sense.

Shocking? Not Shocking At All.

Look, I live in San Diego so I have met a tonne of Europeans in my lifetime. I am immune to the American foible of equating any European accent with intelligence. English people, in my experience, tend to be generally pretty daft and have the most juvenile sense of humor. I mean, it's pretty much farts and pratfalls and Russell Brand, and while there's a place for that, I'd lump it all in with Larry the Cable guy. I mean, it's ironic how much these people have in common with the flyover states on that one. But this is not funny on any level. Mostly, because I don't think it's supposed to be a joke. Warning, pretty graphic.

Screw You, News 8

How can a "news" program give lip service to this crap? Oh, is it too hot for your precious snowflakes to go to school? Where there is no air conditioning? I'm sure the teachers have something to do with this. Do teachers ever do anything but complain?

And be sure to get into the comments and look for the one from JLM, a kid. That should really shed some light on some of the problems in the US today.

Here We Go.

The title of the article is kind of wordy. How about simply, "Christians Are Stupid." Ugh, the are so many mitigating circumstances that lead to poll results like this and the only one they even bother to point out is how much more educated people who don't believe in God are. Also, the reasoning that these people know more because they ultimately turned their back on the church sounds a lot like theory. Here's my theory: Most Christians are pretty reasonable regarding their faith and likely don't take the Bible or it's teaching too literally, whereas people who are agnostic or atheist tend to take the Bible and Christianity at their literal worst, which is likely what this poll was looking for.

Finally, A Film That Should Get The Masses To Root For George W.

I don't care how enlightened people pretend to be, but graphic butt fucking scenes between an American soldier and Iraqi soldier whose love blossomed while on patrol dressed in burqas is not going win over the hearts and minds of the masses. So I expect when the two decide to assassinate George W. Bush, people will be wringing their hands with worry as to how W will courageously escape his evil attackers. Though I expect this will be the opposite effect the Wachowski Bros. will be hoping for. Believe it!

What the Hell is Wrong with Me?
