It's WTF Tuesday!


The breathlessly hilarious top ten!

Lou Dobbs is an idiot. Tell CNN so.

SteveAudio wonders where the rightwing outrage is about Cheney wanting to circumvent the Constitution and use the military for arresting Americans. Apparently the Birthers can use the rules of the Constitution to proclaim Obama was born in a ferrin country, but breaking the Constitutional laws when keepin' us 'safe' is ok?

Another Commie Founding Father speaks from the past:
I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.
Guess which president/founding father? Thomas Jefferson

Gee, whoddah thunk?:
The new study, which entailed outfitting the cabs of long-haul trucks with video cameras over 18 months, found that when the drivers texted, their collision risk was 23 times greater than when not texting.

The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, which compiled the research and plans to release its findings on Tuesday, also measured the time drivers took their eyes from the road to send or receive texts.

In the moments before a crash or near crash, drivers typically spent nearly five seconds looking at their devices — enough time at typical highway speeds to cover more than the length of a football field.
Who would ever imagine that reading something on a small screen would distract someone from seeing that large truaaaaaaahhhhhhhh.....
