Not surprising, but it’s always good to back up an assumption with hard data: Black people are 1.38% of Fox News’s audience.

Here we go again. It’s time for conservatives to take yet another dumb-ass thing that Sarah Palin did (because she’s not very smart) and declare it to be an awesome thing that everyone should do constantly. Write on your hands, refuse to talk to non-conservative journalists, and now refudiate all up in this piece!
Bill Kristol says:
We need a word that captures and conjoins the meanings of refutation and repudiation. And we need it now. To save the country from the ravages of contemporary liberalism, we have to refute liberal arguments and see liberal politicians repudiated at the polls.
Now if only they would start reading ALL the magazines & newspapers.
From a Fox News story about atheists “de-baptizing” themselves with hair dryers
Kagin believes parents are wrong to baptize their children before they are able to make their own choices, even slamming some religious education as “child abuse.” He said the blast of hot air was a way for adults to undo what their parents had done.
Ironically, Kagin’s own son became a fundamentalist Christian minister after having “a personal revelation in Jesus Christ.”
I suppose there’s some minor irony that a staunch Atheist would have a fundamentalist son. On the other hand, it’s completely predictable that someone who values religious choice for children would raise someone who makes a religious choice different than his dad’s.
You could face a stiff fine in France if you try anything funny with their flag. The government has enacted a new rule against destroying, damaging, or degrading the French flag in public spaces.
So next time someone laments that it’s legal to burn the American flag, suggest that we should be more like the French.
The Kings of Leon had to stop playing a show in St. Louis because pigeons were pooping on them.
Opening bands The Postelles and The Stills came offstage complaining of getting riddled with large amounts of excrement, their publicist said.
“The Kings of Leon decided to carry on regardless,” they said in a statement released Saturday. “The band felt it would be unfair to the fans to cancel the show at that late moment.”
“We couldn’t believe what The Postelles and The Stills looked like after their sets,” Followill said. “We didn’t want to cancel the show, so we went for it. We tried to play. It was ridiculous.”
