What we've been tweeting


It was confirmed after we tweeted that this particular #hashtag originated as a Democratic party idea to allow young people to engage in some critical thinking with respect to their leaders.

Tweet: If #WhatObamataughtme originated w/Dems, it demonstrates their unwavering commitment not to this country rather a cult of personality. Sickos.

To be fair, we engaged in similar thought exercises while we were younger as well but it was in regard to a Jew living in Palestine some 2,000 years ago.

Dammit. They had to go there. They had to go there. And in response to this zonbiefied sycophantism, we're forced, as a Pavlovian response, to run this palate cleanser of grade-schoolers we can only assume for which that hashtag was intended to reach.


I pledge to be a servant to our President.

Time for that shower.

drozz, I'll admit, I have a sick fascination with it. The infantile prostration makes me feel good about myself by comparison.

Btw, KT and I are sponsoring you as an honorific in our SLOBs (San Diego Local Order of Bloggers) organization.

Take down the JoePa statue?

Hey, thanks for the support! It'd be an honor. But obviously, someone else wrote that for me.

In re statue:
1) Statues commemorate atrocities as well as triumphs. Why can't we have one that does both?

2) tearing it down seems like running from the past. makes me uneasy. this is also the reason i refuse to get rid of my fraternity tattoo.

3) the south is chock full of little towns; many of these have a statue in the middle commemorating some racist in confederate uniform who did something exponentially worse than paterno did.

the statue stays. my bud over at the nittany turkey had a pretty good idea of having a Paterno room with all his success and tragedy located in the stadium
