Carolina GOP it does.”
They should also read Michael Shermer’s THE SCIENCE of GOOD and EVIL in order to understand that life comes in shades of gray, INCLUDING lying. :)

Can I nominate David Wong from Cracked for COTW?
I wish my school had a “Foreign Objects You’re Going to Try to Put in the Microwave at Some Point so Let’s Just Get it Out of Your System Now” Class. I ruined several microwaves at the fast food job that I had in college.
I love how non-whites rising to prominence in the GOP make them squirm. They *really* want to call her out for being a dirty raghead (which is still hilariously incorrect), but they know the NAACP will crawl so far up their ass they’ll be able to taste it if they do it, and it’d risk South Carolina actually voting Democrat to save face.
I sent the URL for the ten things they donâ€™t teach you at school to my two kids as a bit of humorous Fatherâ€™s Day advice on Sunday and they both really enjoyed it. I often think about what my reaction would be if my daughter started dating a jerk.
You’ll notice they’re worried about her religion, but no one is discussing whether she’s a good candidate or can do the job well. WTF is wrong with the US these days?
Fascinating. Last semester I turned in a project that was basically an eight page report version of the ten things they don’t teach in school article. My paper wasn’t as funny, though.
Also, I agree with QuestionAuthority. Why people seem to think that religious affiliation is a more important factor than competence I don’t know. Probably because they think if the candidate isn’t in good with Jesus, then God’ll send some sort of disaster their way for not having a Chosen leader.
Oh, and South Carolina, please keep it up. I always look forward to the segments about you on the Daily Show…
