A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Olbermann on Gingrich


Via Crooks and Liars.

One of the scariest things about the Democrat victory in America is the retreat of paleoconservatives to their old stomping grounds and primitive ideals. And accompanying that unholy ritual, the resurrection of the corpse of Newt Gingrich. Since his pro-family, pro-Jesus (and pro-divorcing your wife while she was groggy from cancer treatments) days, he had been tossed into a hole and covered with a thin layer of dirt. But now he is clawing his way back into the daylight.



Doubtless it's just clinging dirt that makes his shirt look brown.

I forward you to the University of Toronto's pro-free-speech censor-busting freeware.

It's called Psiphon.

I regard it as possibly the biggest development since the internet itself, created to defeat the censors of countries:
" ... where political ideas are so barren, and political leaders so desperate, that they put up computer firewalls to keep thought, and freedom, out."


Like the United States, as envisioned by Gingrich and friends.

I would like to say something intelligent and profound in gratitude for your likewise comments on my thingy. But I am slightly pissed and had a ferkin shit day on friday and am just starting to giggle about it with the help of a nicely chilled Cava and my daughter has just popped herself round the door with a little 'look at me' wiggle which sent her gently headbutting the carpet and I'm trying soooo hard not to laugh. ohhh tripods rule.
