  Blog Noir. An interplay of cultural references, snark, the occasional smutty joke, Dadaism, Mamaism, and a genuine outrage at the horrors of The Situation.

Polka Madness!

"He's lovely, but not half as lovely as Ludmila of Bohemia."


A special Friday minisermon by Rev. Cavendish


Our Constitution is in peril

So much so that Newt Gingrich has written:

We need YOUR help to take this fight to Capitol Hill. Please consider supporting Renewing American Leadership with a generous donation today. $25, $50, or $100 will dramatically help us stand strong for the Rule of Law in America!

When such an ideologically pure man as Newt starts raising money, you know he must be sincerely worried about the fate of the Republic! What is threatening the "Rule of Law in America"? 

Well, the former Republican House speaker has gone on record opposing the nomination to the Supreme Court of Judge Sonia Sotomayor on the grounds that the following statement is racist:

I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life.

While I rarely disagree with Newt Gingrich, since he is a well-informed and widely-quoted wise man of Washington, in this case I make an exception. No, not because the remark was in the context of a discussion of discrimination cases, ones in which experience as a minority might well provide insight into the nature of discrimination to which a person in the majority, who has not experienced it, has less access. Rather, because the oft-married moralist has TAKEN HIS EYE OFF THE REAL THREAT TO OUR WAY OF LIFE.

By that I mean the VERY REAL POSSIBILITY that our High Court will be swept up in POLKA MADNESS!

Feast your eyes on what another ethnic Supreme Court nominee said about the importance of experience in his confirmation hearings:

I always insisted when I was a lawyer about getting out into the field and seeing. If I was arguing a case involving native villages in Alaska, I went to the villages. If I was arguing a case about an assembly line, I went to the assembly line. You had to see where the case was going to have its impact and what it's impression was going to be on people.

Oh, my. I suppose if you ever review Roe v. Wade, you'll get yourself "knocked up"? Sounds suspiciously like Sotomayor. 

Can you guess who said that?

I'll tell you. Roberts. John Roberts. Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

Are you afraid?

No, maybe not yet. Because Roberts sounds like an American name. But what would you say if I told you John Roberts was just passing for American?

Now are you afraid?

John Roberts’ mother was Rosemary Podrasky, and his great grandfather was Jacob Podrasky, an immigrant from Czechoslovakia. While Roberts is part English and part Irish, he is FULLY ONE HALF CZECH.

That’s right. Just wait until he gets a chance to decide a school prayer case. BAM! All American children forced to pray to craven images of Ludmila of Bohemia

Should children sing the national anthem? BAM! Yes: Kde domov muj?” 

Bilingual education? BAM! Yes, Czech and Slovak! And Old Church Slavonic, if you want to get old school about it.

NOW are you afraid?

And Newt is worried about Latinas?

Was Marie Fikácková, who killed ten newborn babies a Latina? No. How about Olga Hepnarová, who intentionally drove a truck into a crowd of 25 people? I think not. Václav Mrázek? No. Petr Zelenka? No. No Latinas. All famous Czech mass murderers.


Write your congressman in Washington. Before you have to write to him in Prague!

Missing Fafblog picture of the week

Halcylon days.


"What did your mother and I tell you about watching the commercials?"

"That if they need commercials to sell it, it isn't worth buying."

"That's right kids, they're either selling you a price that's too high, or a need that isn't necessary, or a superiority that is superfluous."
