He then said that whatever one called God, "there's a message being sent. And that is, 'Hey, you know that stuff we're doing? Not really working out real well. Maybe we should stop doing some of it.' I'm just saying."

haha! that is the most cautious and ass-covering way ever conceived to basically say exactly what Pat Robertson said after Katrina.

I was going to comment on it more, but the man really should not be taken seriously

There is precedent here - God was PISSED with the Shaanxi province of China for trying to introduce free healthcare in 1556.

Is G*d pissed at Glenn, I mean wasn't he just diagnosed with macular dystrophy?

If assholes are going to use this kind of logic to scare their sheep, they should know if G*d is happy with them. Obviously he isn't... I'm just saying.

Does Fox News agree?
Is Beck going to be dropped from the channel?

Douchebag network maintains douchebag views.

Film 24/7.

I have reached maximum capacity of outrage over pretty much everything right now. I can't muster anything beyond exhausted sarcasm at the moment.

You'll notice one on there called "Shibuyaeggman." Problem is, it doesn't exist.

There is however, in the Shibuya district of Tokyo, a nightclub called the Eggman. They've got it in the right spot on the map too.

I'm not even sure how they make the mistakes they make.

Can I be safe here in saying that the Christian faith is about freedom.

The open mockery really isn't necessary.

Bill Maher IS a rude jerk -and FOX is still full of hypocrites


Jezebel: Celebrity, Sex, Fashion for Women. Without Airbrushing.

Suddenly Fox News Is A Champion Of Women's Rights? Ever since meeting Sarah Palin—and especially now that conservative freakazoid Michele Bachmann is considering running in 2012—Fox News has taken a sudden interest in defending women from sexist, degrading remarks, developing a recent obsession with the comments Bill Maher has made about the two women. So is Fox News our knight in shining armor, saving us from the big comedians of the world? Hardly, as evidenced by this reel of comments made about women by their very own on-air personalities. It would seem that it's only "sexism" when unflattering remarks are made about conservative women. Also, it's not "sexism" if the remarks are actually compliments, like when referring to a congresswoman as "hot."



Last Friday, on his HBO show Real Time, Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a "dumb twat." Since then, Fox News—home of Palin's political commentary—has apparently been harassing the National Organization for Women to come out against Maher in defense of Palin. Yesterday NOW told the network, that it's a "known fact" that it does not correspond with FOX News. But in her blog NOW's communications director Lisa Bennett said, "Listen, supposedly progressive men (ok, and women, too): Cut the crap! Stop degrading women with whom you disagree and/or don't like by using female body terms or other gender-associated slurs." But Bennett went on to call out the right-wing media for its duplicitous interest in sexism after years of ignoring the matter:

You're trying to take up our time getting us to defend your friend, Sarah Palin. If you keep us busy defending her, we have less time to defend women's bodies from the onslaught of reproductive rights attacks and other threats to our freedom, safety, livelihood, etc. Sorry, but we can't defend Palin or even Hillary Clinton from every sexist insult hurled at them in the media. That task would be impossible, and it would consume us. You know this would not be a productive way to fight for women's equal rights, which is why you want us stuck in this morass.

Did you speak up once on behalf of a woman politician before you learned the name Sarah Palin? Did you work toward equality for women in any way prior to August 2008? It would be nice to think that you've suddenly discovered sexism and are interested in joining us in the struggle for full equality. But this really smacks of the worst kind of hypocrisy.
