Joe Biden Has Your Number

House GOP Is Back: Video
Awesome. There are two important numbers today. 800 and 0. 800 billion dollars worth of bad Democrats. Zero complicit Republicans in the House. Oh wait, and three more important numbers.

Open Thread: KHHAAANNN!!!!!!
I’m a day late posting about this, because there was no adequate youtube compilation available at the time. There is now, however. See below for some of Khan’s greatest hits.

Open Thread: Funny or Die
Are they asking us to vote? Yes, actually, they are. And the following got my “Die” vote in spades. Just so you’re clear, Jesus mocking the Bible is “funny”, whereas voting on a matter of law is tantamount to enslavement. You know, first it was “The More You Know”. Then “This is your brain on drugs”. Then “George Bush hates black people,” “Yes We Can,” | Read More »
