Jim Jones was a Community Organizer

Just sayin’

He also pioneered the drinking of some sort of ‘special’ chilled, from-powder beverage.

To the One from whom all blessings flow

From the unworthy ones living here below

For the Light You’ve given to show Your Way

For the friends who’ve graced us day by day

For the ones who blazed the paths we tread

For the ones whose blood was, for freedom, shed

For the ones You’ve given us for neighbors

For uncountable times You’ve granted favor

May we seek You more each passing hour

And tremble at Your might and power

Lest we forget our humble station

You bless America, we bless You — Your nation

Maverick Going Back To Senate, Seek 5th Term

Reference: GOPUSA
I can’t wait to see if McCain’ll remain the stalwart conservative he’s always been…..

OH MAN!, I just could NOT keep going on that one. Sides were hurting from laughing too hard.
Summary: Dem. Supermajority complete.

Well, at least Gov. Palin is helping out Chambliss in GA. So maybe they won’t get a super-duper majority.

lolterizt! Part 69

This week terrorists, next week That One. Submit for either at lolterizt@gmail.com

Meanwhile, pass ’em around, spread the love, and if you make your own, don’t be shy about dropping a link to your pics in the comments. The more, the merrier.

NOTE TO READERS: Hovering your mouse over the picture activates closed captioning for the l33t-speak/txtmsg impaired.

[reference link]

#1: When creating lolterizt! pictures, please caption with either black or white text, as colors like red and yellow tend to blur badly when I compress the images.

#2: Standard image size for these posts is 350px wide by whatever high. If you can have your images 350px wide before you caption them, I won’t end up shrinking your captions into illegibility when I re-size the images.

MAKE YOUR OWN: The free lolbuilder from I Can Has Cheezburger.

STYLE NOTE: Short captions are usually better. Your goal is 10 words or less, with humor value tending to increase exponentially as the number of words approaches 1.

HAT TIP: Snapped Shot for handy links to ripe-for-captioning photos.

Send your submissions to lolterizt@gmail.com and – if they aren’t obscene (IMAO is a PG-13 site) and don’t suck too terribly bad – I’ll post them for you. Remember to include your name (and blog URL, if applicable) so I know who to thank.

The most trusted name in made-up news

According to a recent Zogby poll, “37.6% of those surveyed, news sources on the Internet are considered to be the most reliable.”

More than Fox News. More than CNN. More than MSNBC. More than the New York Times.

Think about that for a minute.

I mean, if people believe the Internet more than news organizations, does that mean that they don’t trust CNN, but do trust CNN.com?

I don’t think so.

There’s something else on the Internet they trust. And what could that be?


Yes, blogs — such as this blog — are the most trusted source of news. That has to be it!

As a dues-paying member of the Internets, I, for one, am proud of the faith you have placed us.

Misplaced faith, to be sure. But we’re not about to let your misguided notions of who to trust go to our heads.

We’ll continue to make up stuff about liberals, never ceasing, never tiring, never stopping, ever growing, ever moving, ever rising till … well, you get the idea.

Like CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, the New York Times, or any of those “news organizations,” we’ll continue to be make stuff up and to have a tremendous bias.

Unlike CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, the New York Times, or any of those “news organizations,” we’ll continue to be open and honest about making stuff up and about our bias.

You can trust us on that.

Who’s who

I’ve noticed something odd. Or odd to me, anyway.

It’s happened a couple of times. And it relates to how people view this blog.

Harvey wrote a post recently. And someone, in the comments, referred to him as “Frank.”

It’s happened more than once. Thinking someone else was Frank J. And it’s happened to more than Harvey. It’s happened to Cadet Happy. It even happened to me.

Now, how someone could confuse me and Frank J. is beyond me.

For one thing, I’m older. And taller. At least, I think I’m taller. I don’t know for sure. I’ve never met Frank J. I suspect he’s, oh, 5’11” or so. Heck, he might be taller. I’m 6’2″ … but I could be short next to Frank J. He might be 7’4″ and play for the Celtics. Except they pronounce it “SELL-tix” when it’s actually “KELL-tix” so what do they know.

Anyway, this strange phenomenon means that people either…

a) don’t read the byline on the post. I mean, it says clear as day “posted by Harvey” or “posted by Frank J.” or whatever the name of the person posting is. Do people not read that part? Is it because it’s the boring part?

Actually, it’s the only part that bloggers care about. “Posted by Basil” for instance is the only part I care about.

All that nonsense that follows the byline? Junk. Means nothing. Just words. Heck, I don’t even know what I’m talking about half the time. Okay, three quarters of the time. Oh, alright. All the time.

But it doesn’t matter. It’s the byline that’s important. It has my name. Or Harvey’s name, if Harvey wrote it. Or Frank J.’s name. Or Cadet Happy’s name. Or SarahK’s name. Or SpaceMonkey’s name. Or… well, you get the idea. And a good understanding of why the part after the byline is crap. I mean, have you even read this post?

For all I care, I could be writing Latin nonsense. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. See? My point, exactly.

Oh, yeah, there was another possibility, wasn’t there. It was…

b) people think Frank J. posts everything here. And that could be it. Maybe people think that all the little voices in Frank J.’s head come out to play sometimes, and write their own posts.

Like we’re all Frank J.’s sockpuppets. And maybe “sockpuppet” is the wrong word. In its earliest form, it was simply an alias; today, it’s more like a fake identity to praise another identity.

So, maybe I’m simply an alias for Frank J. And you are Frank J.’s sockpuppet, telling him how great he is and how much you enjoy his posts. Ever think about that? Scary, huh? Like a Twilight Zone episode.

But what’s the answer?

Are Harvey, SarahK, SpaceMonkey, et al, simply pseudonymns for Frank J? Or are people simply not reading the bylines?

No, they are real people. Every one of them.

At least, that’s what we want you to believe.

Nervous Laughter

Do you get this feeling when all the conservatives are laughing at Obama’s “change” — his Clinton-retread cabinet choices and how it looks like he’s not going to overhaul as many Bush’s policies as promised — they’re really just thinking, “Crap; he’s not going to be as big a disaster as we thought.”

I mean, I still hold out hope he’s going to be liberal enough to be a huge disaster, but I’m getting a little nervous.

That’s “African-American Widow” To YOU

Laurie sent me this:

Now, besides the obvious fact that Barack has now been warned, and he should probably keep a pair of Nikes by the bed for rapid post-coital departures, there’s something that really bugs me about this picture:

Michelle’s knees are about a foot apart. In order for her legs to meet at the point where most normal human legs typically meet, her thighs must be big enough to generate a significant gravitational field, and may actually influence tides in the D.C. area for the next four years.

Either that, or underneath that dress her hips are built like ED-209.
