A Scattering of Brains!
Obama's conservative marriage
Doesn't it just bug you that divorced rich guys can say they're for family values (squawk!), but Barack and Michelle Obama, who have the most conservative of relationships-- two kids, pets, lifelong commitment to their first marriage-- can't get that message across?

Maybe it's the 50% divorce rate. The Obamas shame America by being successful and loving the first time out.

TSA declares large breasts too dangerous to fly!
A woman with large breasts was told that either she be subjected to a physical pat-down of her breasts, or she wouldn't be allowed to fly.

Glenn Greenwald crashes AT&T's party in Denver!
AT&T gave millions of dollars to the Democratic National Committee to pay for rental of the Pepsi center and technical expertise at the Denver convention, and they threw a private party to thank specific Democratic representatives and operatives for their help. Greenwald stood outside with a crew and a camera, filming people as they entered and left.
Amazingly, not a single one of the 25-30 people we tried to interview would speak to us about who they were, how they got invited, what the party's purpose was, or why they were attending. It was as though they knew they're part of a filthy and deeply corrupt process and were ashamed of -- or at least eager to conceal -- their involvement in it. After just a few minutes, the private security teams demanded that we leave, and when we refused and continued to stand in front trying to interview the reticent attendees, the Denver Police forced us to move further and further away until finally we were unable to approach any more of the arriving guests.

K-Lo brings the craziness!
Kathryn Lopez says, "Conversations with random liberal strangers in New York City often descent into anger, bitterness, and crazy theories that cannot be argued with."

Does this woman even listen to Rush? I was listening to "The best of Rush" clips this weekend on our local conservative radio station, and his latest theory is that Obama is a robot. Remember the thing in Bush's clothes? that everyone wondered about in 2004? Apparently, the technology is improved, and SPECTRE is now using subcutaneous implants to control Obama.

No, really, other than the bit about SPECTRE, that's Limbaugh's current theory. He doesn't know who Obama's operators are, but they must be somewhere...

*sigh* The sad bit is, if you judge by actions not words, Rush is - now - not too far off. *Somebody*, during the FISA thing, conked Obama over the head, drug him out behind the woodshed, and put in a full set of puppet strings. He went from being animated, outspoken, ready to engage anyone on anything, and ready to challenge anyone on any subject, including (nearly) the full range of civil rights (he never was so hot on the Second, more's the pity)... now he's not much better than Jerry Mahoney.

The sensitivity is random. My bra underwires (and pants zipper) have set off the metal detector probably twice in all my flying. One I was wanded. The second I was patted down by a female employee who apologized for having to do so.

And one time my shoes set it off where they had never set it off before.

I'm quite sure they can set the sensitivity to whatever they want. But I think there are bigger issues to focus on in the airports, like the increasing restrictions on what you can bring aboard and what one is charged for on the other side of security and how you're fine if you have enough money to buy water, but what if you don't.

I've flashed nipple rings in the past. It did stop the questioning.

Quite effectively, I'd imagine.
