It’s called “wingnut welfare” for a reason.

Where have all the Republican scientists gone?

Sadly, the Peanutweeter has fallen victim to a DMCA copyright complaint. Here’s an impassioned argument that it constituted fair use parody. I’ll say this much: It was way funnier than any of the later-year Peanuts strips that rerun in perpetuity on the daily pages of the Chronicle. (The Sunday funnies use older strips from its golden days, thank the stars.)

For those who like playing in the dirt but want bigger toys.

Sock puppetry is always pathetic.

Let Georgia’s crops rot in the field. It may teach some politicians a lesson.

You have to love Marc Cuban.

How Republicans view the economy.

Without immigrant labor, the NBA wouldn’t be as good as it is. Same for MLB, of course.

Teabagger TV. I’ll be watching “Covert Affairs”, thanks.

Oh, and one more thing: RIP, Peter Falk. As usual, Mark Evanier has a story to tell.

A better way to be “pro-life”.
