Former Assistant Secretary of State P.J. Crowley wonders why the president hasn’t told Syrian president Bashar al-Assad to step down. Although Obama seemed to embrace the concept of “responsibility to protect” in intervening in Libya and calling for Muammar Gaddafi to step down from power, he has not done the same in Syria. If Gaddafi … Continue reading Obama’s ‘Doctrine of Inconsistency’
An incredibly arrogant international business major from USC responds after learning he would not be rehired as a lifeguard (via Deadspin): I have been offered a second internship with BMW, a profoundly respected world leader in luxury automobile manufacturing, for this upcoming summer and fall semesters. Obviously, looking to significantly enhance my resume to a … Continue reading Does Univ. of South Carolina breed assholes?
Longtime Atlantans will remember Guy Sharpe, the courtly, silver-maned weatherman who stayed on the air for decades. You may also recall that he was a religious fanatic (and Amway salesman) who spread a very nutty rumor about Proctor & Gamble. According to Guy, the company’s trademark symbolized an allegiance to Satan, to whom P&G tithed … Continue reading The Atlanta weatherman, Mr. Clean and the angels of darkness

Atlanta Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell is accused of some boorish, ignorant remarks, for which he’s apologized — sort of. Calling them anti-gay slurs, as I did in an article about the incident yesterday, may be a bit much. “Are you a homo couple or a threesome?” McDowell allegedly said before using a bat to … Continue reading Another trial w/o jury by the queer establishment?
Back in Oct. 2009, Todd Boyd, a professor of mine at USC and Tyler Perry’s fiercest critic, wrote: [In] spite of the demeaning stereotypes and utter disregard for black humanity, TP’s dope has some people reluctant to criticize him. Many point to TP’s money and success and in turn use this to justify their support … Continue reading The most PC movie review ever
“China is raping this country,” says Trump. Guess who’s an enabler. (via Andrew Sullivan)
He’s a liar. There was never any proof Obama was NOT born in the U.S. Simply put, Trump used McCarthyite tactics to manufacture a controversy, a strategy he’s repeating by questioning Obama’s academic record. He’s arrogant. If I ever said, “I’m very proud of myself,” as Trump said Wednesday after Obama released his birth certificate, … Continue reading Donald Trump is everything your mother taught you not to be

Atlanta’s reputation as having some of the worst surface streets in the South was confirmed by a stinging internal audit that shows that the city has done little to monitor private utility companies and contractors who routinely rip up the streets. Sloppy paperwork and a lack of oversight by the city department responsible for roads … Continue reading There’s a reason it’s called public works
It’s the only way poor Stefani Germanotta can overcome the bullies that still haunt her. Who knew privileged Gothamites had it so rough. “It hurts how much authenticity and how much genuine blood is in my spirit.” Spoken like a true phony.
He’s a two-term governor who left office with a substantial budget surplus. A successful businessman who’s climbed Everest, Gary Johnson is refreshingly unconventional, supporting the decriminalization of weed, favoring a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants (the only solution, since they’ll never be deported) and ending our interventionist foreign policy. That won’t fly with the … Continue reading One GOP presidential contender who won’t insult your intelligence
Fergit, hell. Except in Mississippi, most voters in these states are glad the Union won the “War Between the States” instead of the South. 53% say that in Georgia, 48% in North Carolina, and 34% in Mississippi. But still fewer in Mississippi (27%) would prefer that General Lee’s troops had prevailed; a 39% plurality are … Continue reading Only 34 percent of Mississippians glad Union prevailed
Politico’s Ben Smith reminds us partisan delusion isn’t limited to just one party. “How likely is it that people in the federal government either assisted in the 9/11 attacks or took no action to stop the attacks because they wanted the United States to go to war in the Middle East?” the  poll asked. … Continue reading The insanity goes both ways
