A Plague of Atheists Has Descended, and Catholics are the Target

Christopher Hitchens

Greg Craven, who is the Vice-Chancellor of Australian Catholic University (ACU), wrote a serious, yet funny, article.  The article comes from my favorite Australian newspaper, The Sydney Morning Herald.  In the article, A plague of Atheists has Descended and Catholics are the Target, Greg Craven explains the rise of a new group of atheists that would rather engage in polemics and attacks on the Catholic faith than engage in serious dialogue.  These attacks are so vitriol that they descend beyond reason and become humorous to read, but they aren’t intentional.

Just Desserts

Saturday, September 26, 2009 \AM\.\Sat\.

I’m not normally the guy putting up political YouTube videos, but this was just too funny to pass up. Ill. rep Baron Hill talks down to a journalism major about why she’s not allowed to record video during his town hall: because videos invariably end up showing compromising moments on YouTube. And now here he is, hectoring the girl, on YouTube.

Lesson: For politicians, life is like the Internet. If you do something stupid, it will always be there for everyone to see.

More Biden Merriment

Friday, June 12, 2009 \AM\.\Fri\.


Joe Biden, Veep-in-charge-of-public-amusement , continues his one man war against national gloom Hattip to Ed Morrissey at Hot Air. In regard to a question about the new Hudson river rail tunnel on June 8, Joe said, ““Look, this is designed, this totally new tunnel, is designed to provide for automobile traffic.  It’s something, as you know, up your way, that’s been in the works and people have been clamoring for for a long time.”  The tunnel is solely for trains.

Hands Off Our Joe!

Friday, May 22, 2009 \AM\.\Fri\.


In the time of the Great Depression the mood of the nation was lightened by the antics of Little Orphan Annie.  We have the antics of that never ending fount of unintentional humor Joe Biden.  From revealing the existence of a secret bunker, to doing his best to create a panic over the swine flu, to attempting to blow the election last year, Joe Biden has become our best hope for a daily chuckle in these dire economic times.

Scratch One Secret Bunker

Saturday, May 16, 2009 \PM\.\Sat\.


Joe Biden, that ever bubbling fount of unintentional humor, decided at an “off the record’ conversation at the Gridion Club to reveal a secret bunker at the Veep’s residence at the Naval Observatory.  Before this administration is over, I suspect that Obama will wish many times that he could simply thrust Biden into the bunker, lock it and throw away the keys.

Hattip to Hot Air.  After this rendition by Denise Richards, Take Me Out To The Ball Game will never be quite the same again.  If you have a fondness for that song, baseball, or the Cubs, you might wish to skip the above video.  Seriously.

Time to Panic

Hatip to Drudge Report.  Biden, that never failing source of unintentional humor in dark times, in addition to being Veep is apparently de facto Surgeon General based on this rather alarmist advice that he gave in regard to swine flu.  Perhaps he believes the swine flu is the crisis he warned about last year?

Update:  Dale Price at Dyspeptic Mutterings has more health tips from the Veep.
