WARNING: THIS SITE FEATURES ORIGINAL THINKING...Jim Croce once sang Don't tug on Superman's cape..., which seems like reasonable advice should we not wish to anger the supreme powers. We do have this duality in our culture: the Superman that is the state collective, the leftist call to a politics of meaning managed by the state, the deification of "we're from the government and we'll take care of you" - versus the Superman that celebrates individual freedom, private property, freedom of conscience, free enterprise, and limited government. We humbly take on the latter's mantle and, eschewing the feeble tug, we dare to PULL, in hope of seeing freedom's rescue from the encroaching nanny state. We invite you, dear reader, to come and pull as well... Additionally, if you assume that means that we are unflinching, unquestioning GOP zombies, that would be incorrect. We reject statism in any form and call on individuals in our country to return to the original, classical liberalism of our founders. (We're also passionate about art, photography, cooking, technology, Judeo/Christian values, and satire as unique, individual pursuits of happiness to celebrate.)

Kerry voted for more Iraq funding?
Filed in: Current Affairs, Kerry Satire, Politics, War on Terror

Earlier this week the United States Senate approved a new spending bill - primarily for Iraq war funds.

The Senate vote Tuesday evening was 100 - 0.

Wednesday President Bush signed the bill:

President Bush has signed an $82 billion spending bill to pay for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and other projects, including border enforcement and tsunami relief, the White House said Wednesday.


Reached for comment, Massachusetts Senator John Kerry said, "Well, as is my custom, I am voting for this legislation now so that I can  voice my opposition to it later. We continue to be lied to and decieved by this President." Asked whether it would make more sense to actually vote against a measure he doesn't agree with, Kerry responded, "Well, that's what people might expect of me, but I'm far too nuanced for that. I know when to stand for principle and I know when to go along with my colleagues. I fought very hard in Vietnam and I'm going to continue to fight hard for the people of the state of Massachusetts."


Incidentally, Polipundit continues to track Kerry's promise to sign form SF-180. Perhaps John hasn't been able to get around to it yet - it's only been 103 days since he promised - as of today. Since his promise, he has been able to somehow vote 121 times in the Senate (missing only one vote) so far - guess he's just too busy to slap that signature down on the 180.

That's some nuance for you.

More Kerry - Bin Ladin
Filed in: Current Affairs, Kerry Satire, Politics

In an earlier post, I presumed to solve the September Oompa Loompa mystery.

Turns out there were additional signals from the Kerry campaign using the 'soccer-ball-near-the-head' image.



Closest thing to a headdress they could come up with.

The alternative, of course, is that Kerry had a significant pasttime of practicing headers for his future soccer career. Perhaps he really was working toward taking on that fourth grade team in the picture from my previous post. Wrapped up keffiya image or soccer ball - you decide.

Oompa Loompa Mystery Solved
Filed in: Current Affairs, Kerry Satire, Politics

Back on September 28 the blogosphere was in a brouhaha about Kerry's tan:


No one could really figure out what he was up to.

Turns out that this was a coordination with UBL gone awry. Since they needed to be on message together (you know, Bush deceived, Bush wavered, blood for oil, i.e. see Michael Moore-isms repeated by UBL and Kerry), Kerry thought it would be appropriate to match tans with UBL. He was working off of this picture which was the most recent photo that he had:


But, since UBL has been, oh, on the run since September 11, 2001, he's aged about 20 years in the last three. He just doesn't quite have the same spunk that he did. His shoulders are a little more slumped, his eyes not as bright, looking quite pale actually, kind of like a guy just maybe looking for a time out. Soon after September 28, Kerry got a new photo of UBL -


And so decided to go back to a more congenial coloring so as to not upstage his ally. They have been able to stay on message together and manage to look pretty much the same since. They have made some subliminal attempts at coordination for the faithful. Since it wouldn't look appropriate for Kerry to wear a doo-rag, the Kerry campaign thought it would make do with a near-the-head floating white object, with a purposeful UBL look and coordinated jackets, just so that when UBL appeared, everyone would be subliminally reminded of the common message.



Vote George Walker Bush!

UPDATE: My post was (almost) entirely in jest. But friend Rizzn Do'Urden (not a Bush supporter) has compared the translation of Bin Ladin's video with statements from the Kedwards site. Chilling.
