Can you guess? I'll give you a hint…. it's not this one. It's either Google or Facebook.
I was aware of this, but it never grabbed me. But it involves the Gregory Brothers, so that's cool. Anyway, if you want to know what the meme of the year is, or what a "meme" is, watch:
From WaPo: Geraldine Doyle, 86, who as a 17-year-old factory worker became the inspiration for a popular World War II recruitment poster that evoked female power and independence under the slogan "We Can Do It!," died Dec. 26 at a hospice in Lansing, Mich. Her daughter, Stephanie Gregg, said the cause of death was complications from severe arthritis. For millions … Read More

Every February, the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) fourishes in Washington D.C. — it is the right-wing event of the year, and heavy hitters from the conservative movement and the Republican Party are anxious to be a part of it. You name it; they are there. Limbaugh, Beck, Palin, Cheney, etc. And with their gains in the Senate and House this … Read More
FAIL Compilation: WIN Compilation: You know, a lot of the time, there's not much difference between the two.
Here it comes…. you ready? I keep my ear pretty close to the crazy ground, so I think this might have some legs. From the people that brought you "death panels", the next big fear. And it goes something like this: PRESIDENT OBAMA IS GOING TO RETURN MANHATTAN TO THE INDIANS You see, on December 16, the President announced that the U.S. … Read More
It's a little sappy, but what the heck… it's Christmas:
So here's the clip… First of all, it's clear that Palin has never heard of Sorkin. She can't remember his first name, and (with an assist from the GMA interviewer) chalks him up as a Hollywood producer. Yes, technically co-produces some of TV shows, but he's mainly known as a writer, and calling him a "movie producer" is like … Read More
Well, the repeal of DADT passed. And this made McCain cry. The Washington Post recounts the ugliness: In the end, McCain lost eight Republicans as the ban was easily overturned. This wasn't entirely surprising, because Defense Secretary Robert Gates (a Bush administration holdover) and Joint Chiefs Chairman Mike Mullen both argued passionately for repeal, and a Pentagon study forecast that a repeal … Read More
Raindrops on roses – I suppose it would be nice, if I was in the mood to do photography or something. Generally though, I'm not much of a nature photographer. Whiskers on kittens – All kitten have whiskers. I'm underwhelmed. Bright copper kettles – I don't really know what I would use a kettle for. Especially a copper one. Warm … Read More
I love these year-end retrospectives. Everyone's doing them. Politifact, the unit of the St. Petersberg Times which won a Pultizer Prize in Journalism for being about accuracy (a rather sad commentary on the state of journalism), picks out the biggest lie of 2010: In the spring of 2009, a Republican strategist settled on a brilliant and powerful attack line for … Read More
