An Idea for Dickish Performance Art

As you no doubt know by now, New York passed the same-sex marriage law. For us observers who simply went to our jobs all week with awareness of this bill sort of hovering in the backgrounds of our minds, it felt like a long wait. I thought for a while that they were trying to [...]

Sunnyside Has a Ton of Old Queens

I spent a chunk of time this morning at Starbucks, using the reliable internet connection, while the missus sat around and waited for Time Warner to come fix ours. The window they gave us was a very convenient “any time between 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.” That’s longer than my workday, Dickheads. Anyway, the missus [...]

Kansas Leads the Way Again!

Kansas has become the first state in the union to eliminate its funding for the arts. Thank you, Governor Sam Brownback, for this Dickhead move. I expect nothing less of you. I’m a product of Kansas’s public arts programming. I don’t know if those programs actually received funding from the Kansas Arts Council, but the [...]

Donald Trump: Wrong

I’m a bit late on this one, and I’m not even talking about Donald Trump in the context of his supposed run for the Presidency. No, I’m even later. I happened upon an old clip of “Celebrity Apprentice,” in which The Donald attempts to get Cyndi Lauper to tell him who she thinks he should [...]

What Matters Is $5, Apparently

I’m not a big fan of the big banking industry. I mean, really. Fuck those guys. And the ads for banks that are all soft and lovely, pretending to be about something bigger than just money, are disingenuous and hypocritical, and again, I say fuck those guys. JP Morgan Chase is one of my least [...]

The Real Victim

It’s been four days since the tragic shooting in Tuscon. But let’s not forget the real victim of this terrible event: Sarah Palin. Yes, that’s right. In the aftermath of the shooting, Sarah Palin, “listened, at first puzzled, then with concern, and now with sadness, to the irresponsible statements from people attempting to apportion blame [...]

Fuck You — For the Cure!

My job circles in and around the nonprofit world. So it was with some interest that I read that Susan G. Komen for the Cure spent about a million dollars last year going after grassroots groups that use “for the cure” for supposedly being in violation of their trademark. Dude. Susan G. Komen. Excuse me: [...]

No Health Care For You

I would much rather that my tax dollars go to pay for health care for the 9/11 first responders than the health care for Tom Coburn. Unfortunately, that option lies in the hands of Tom Coburn and his colleagues, and I have a hard time imagining that even the Republicans are willing to give up [...]

These Dead Presidents Are Way Worse

I’m no presidential historian, but when the right attacks Woodrow Wilson, well, they wake a sleeping bald & effective giant. If Woodrow’s their tit, I’ll give them a few tats… Fuck James Buchanan. He ruined Kansas. It’s because of him that Fred Phelps has flourished in Kansas. Seriously, it all goes back to James Buchanan. [...]

God Answered You, Asshole

So that pastor in Florida, Terry Jones, who was a lot funnier when he was in Monty Python, is planning on burning some copies of the Koran to commemorate 9/11. He’s got a reason. And that reason is that he’s a Dickhead. I heard a clip of an interview with the man replayed on Democracy [...]
