Hitler Finds Out Scott Brown Won Massachusetts Senate Seat

Hooray for Divided Government

Congrats to Scott Brown for winning in Mass. I'm no Republican, but the best this ole libertarian can ever hope for is divided government, and the Democrats' loss of their senatorial super-majority gives us that. Divided government helped make the Clinton years a success, as well as the Reagan Years. Checks and balances for the win.

It's the best we can hope for in a bad situation.

Plus, his daughter Ayla is a hottie with a very Star Warsy name :)

Although I must admit, Blue Twi'leks with lightsabers are more my style...

And said blue babe spells it Aayla (I imagine Ms. Brown got her name from Clan of the Cave Bear). Either way, if any story ever has a Star Wars hook, you know I'm gonna find it!

The History of Western Philosophy in Under Five Minutes

A Letter to Pat Robertson

Evidently this was read on NPR. I enjoyed it:
Dear Pat Robertson,

I know that you know that all press is good press, so I appreciate the shout-out. And you make God look like a big mean bully who kicks people when they are down, so I'm all over that action.

But when you say that Haiti has made a pact with me, it is totally humiliating. I may be evil incarnate, but I'm no welcher. The way you put it, making a deal with me leaves folks desperate and impoverished.

Sure, in the afterlife, but when I strike bargains with people, they first get something here on earth -- glamour, beauty, talent, wealth, fame, glory, a golden fiddle. Those Haitians have nothing, and I mean nothing. And that was before the earthquake. Haven't you seen "Crossroads"? Or "Damn Yankees"?

If I had a thing going with Haiti, there'd be lots of banks, skyscrapers, SUVs, exclusive night clubs, Botox -- that kind of thing. An 80 percent poverty rate is so not my style. Nothing against it -- I'm just saying: Not how I roll.

You're doing great work, Pat, and I don't want to clip your wings -- just, come on, you're making me look bad. And not the good kind of bad. Keep blaming God. That's working. But leave me out of it, please. Or we may need to renegotiate your own contract.

Best, Satan
