Above: Jeannette is in the midst of her final 6-month stint in the south of France and sent some pix of her latest work, which seems a fine way to start off a Monday post.
But, moving right along, how else to brighten up one's Monday than to make fun of John McTruthy and the wingnuts who love him. To begin with, I understand there was some kind of churchy thing over the weekend during which McPious told an adoring crowd this:
Q: At what point is a baby entitled to human rights?To which my immediate response was: Too bad Republicans seem to think that such entitlement ends at birth. More on the event from Blue Texan in a deliciously-titled post ("McCain's Bushlike Moral Infantilism") here. Maha too of course. And Tbogg is in fine form with these two back-to-back posts on Senator McIntegrity. All in all, I'd say the old guy got a pretty right good and well-deserved thumping in the blogosphere (albeit not, of course, in the MSM) for his smarmy performance. As for Obama, what the heck. I sort of wish he didn't feel the need to pander to these folks but if he does, he does and he might as well do a decent job of it which, by most accounts he seems to have done. Whatever.
A: At the moment of conception.
In other news, the rascals over at SadlyNo have been having a whale of a time making fun of one Amy Alkon and this post has to be the pinnacle of that effort, and the comment thread had me busting a gut this morning. I'm still recovering.
