Life Seems Bleak


Today, Slate released an article listing, organizing, and analyzing the comments that Sarah Palin deletes from her Facebook wall. There’s nothing terribly surprising about the stuff she censors—stuff like “America’s greatest threat is Marxism and International Jewry/Zionism! We will never regain our Liberty and Freedom until we expel every Jew from America!” and “The ones I feel for is one day those in the media that are doing the way they are will come down .you are a threat to them and their evil ways. David only needed 5 stones to bring down the giant. and i belive those five stones had on them five letters JESUS. The road may get hard but one day you will know God gave you that to walk.” Interesting. I guess the censorship is Palin’s tacit admission that her legions are filled with total crazies? Seems bleak, mostly. Wonder if Obama does it.

Here’s a sewer monster they found in North Carolina a year ago, seems bleak:


Apparently this disgusting animal is actually a zombie hoard of post-apocalyptic “sewage worms” called tubifex tubifex that can “survive in areas heavily polluted with organic matter that almost no other species can endure.” Gross.

The second American civil war might start soon. Bleak. Some sheriff… somewhere has threatened to fight the Bureau of Land Management in the case that they do what they’ve been threatening: come in and seize a bunch of cattle in the sheriff’s jurisdiction. Specifically, dude is saying he’s going to arrest the feds, and the feds are saying that they’re going to arrest him. Both posture that they’ll meet force with force.


In a bleak non-turn of events, Fox News is lying to all of America about the 9/11 Ground Zero mosque thing. Village Voice reported today that during coverage of the scandal, Fox has been broadcasting some random construction site next to Ground Zero, not the site of the proposed mosque, which turns out to be two blocks away from the site of the 9/11 attacks. Idiots.

Finally, Juggalos have invaded Australia. Here’s a picture of what happened, via The Daily Telegraph:

To this, Violent J of Insane Clown Posse, the co-founder of the “notorious American crime gang” had this to say:

Come on, man, I fuckin’ straight up feel sorry for anybody that can look at the moon the trees, and the seven seas, and not see fuckin’ miracles. It’s not about religion either. Nature itself is a miracle. Stand toe to toe with the ocean at night and tell me that shit ain’t amazing. We appreciate all this shit. Especially a yellow ass, long neck giraffe.

Actually, he said that about something else entirely, but whatever. Seems bleak.
