Years ago the Reverend Jerry Falwell became a laughingstock when he declared that children’s television characters, the Teletubbies, were gay. Although the insipidly adorable British monstrosities, Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po have been turning children’s brains to mush for almost fifteen years, there is no evidence to suggest that exposure to the Teletubbies has any effect on a child’s future sexuality.
Through the gulf of years, however, it becomes plain that the buffoonish Bible-thumper wasn’t altogether wrong. At the heart of the issue is the word ‘gay’ with its myriad connotations.
It is ludicrous to think that four sexless, half-witted mutant hamsters could be homosexual (or any kind of sexual). Despite this, it is apparent to even the most casual observer that the Teletubbies are in fact massively gay.

It turns out that Rich Iott, the GOP’s nominee for Ohio’s 9th Congressional District, likes to dress up as an SS officer. This may prove a liability in the upcoming election.
Although Iott contends that his activities with Wiking, a group which reenacts the battles of Germany’s 5th SS Panzer Division Wiking, merely reflect his love of history, this incident raises serious question about Iott’s electability. At the very least this displays a marked lack of judgement for a candidate. The only thing more politically damaging than being photographed in a Nazi officer’s uniform is actually going full Mönti and dressing up like Hitler.
While this news should play well within the relatively tiny white supremacist subculture, that’s likely to be of little benefit to Iott, as very few such individuals vote, believing it to be a “waste of time since the Zionist cabal has already determined the winner.” It will play poorly with both the Democratic party and with moderate to conservative elements within the GOP. Members of the Tea Party are expected to react no more warmly. Although Iott is a Tea Party candidate, the party is said to be fuming at the weekend Krieger’s indiscretion. A disgusted Tea Party member was heard opining that, “You can’t have National Socialism without socialism.”
Most observers predict that the disclosure of his involvement with the Weekend Wehrmacht will doom Iott’s election bid. Not so, says the congressional hopeful. “America has been ‘business as usual’ for too long. What you’re really talking about is institutional chaos. Rich Iott will make sense of the chaos, and with your help will bring about a New Order in November.”

If you’re one of the millions of people around the world who love the smell of buttery popcorn, then you owe a great deal of thanks to an unnamed Colorado man who learned a very hard lesson on your behalf.
Around 2007, the man went to his doctor complaining of breathing difficulties. Tests revealed extensive lung damage of a kind typically exhibited by workers in industrial or agricultural facilities. The man’s ailment was initially a mystery, and a variety of theories were put forth and discarded until finally the culprit was identified.
This man liked microwave popcorn. He liked it a lot. The man confessed to the doctors that he’d eaten at least two bags a day for at least a decade. The Colorado man said of himself, “I am Mr. Popcorn. I love popcorn.” Unsurprisingly, he was overweight.
Lest any popcorn-chawing members of the Cadre Promethean worry, it wasn’t the eating of microwave popcorn that proved to be Mr. Popcorn’s nemesis. No, he loved the rich buttery smell of the sweet, sweet maize so much that he would put his face into the bag like a horse with its feed and inhale deeply before eating.
At the time, most brands of microwave popcorn contained diacetyl, a chemical which adds extra yumminess to the buttery flavor. However, diacetyl is toxic when inhaled, leading to diacetyl-induced bronchiolitis obliterans, known more simply by the much-cooler term “Popcorn Worker’s Lung.” Mr. Popcorn had managed to contract a disease heretofore only known in the popcorn industry.
It is difficult to imagine what Mr. Popcorn must be going through. But according to one of the physicians who worked with him, Dr. Cecile Rose, his debilitating condition was the furthest thing from his mind. As always, he was focused on the hot, buttery goodness of exploded corn kernels. Said Dr. Rose, “He was really upset that he couldn’t have it anymore.”

Basket case Bethany Storro came to the public’s attention last week when she claimed to be the victim of a shocking assault. The 28-year old Vancouver, Wa. resident said that a mysterious assailant threw acid in her face.
Authorities initially believed Storro, since she did not claim her assailant was the “mysterious black man” of so many fake assaults. She threw a curveball to police when she suggested that her attacker was a mysterious black woman!
Storro’s clever, race-baiting mendacity notwithstanding, the police eventually grew suspicious. After repeated questioning, the woman admitted that she had doused acid on her own face, necessitating surgery.
A police representative said that all things considered, Storro was actually very fortunate. “For Bethany to have survived for twenty-eight years now is really something special, especially given what a complete and utter moron she is. ”

Like Joe Lieberman’s successful reelection bid in 2006, extreme elements within the Democratic Party are promoting a primary challenger against incumbent Senator Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas. Lieberman was not sufficiently anti-war for the Moveon.org types, and so cable gazillionaire Ned Lamont received the party’s blessing to represent the Dems in November. Lamont, who announced a gubernatorial bid a few weeks ago, may have been lacking in a great many necessary qualities, but he was against the war, a quality which seemingly trumped all else. Lieberman ran as an independent and won. Despite the party’s disloyalty, the Democrats managed to save the seat in reality, because Lieberman continues to caucus with the party. In conservative Arkansas, dividing the party in this manner is not such a safe gamble.
In recent years, Republican RINOism (Republican In Name Only) has served to alienate a growing portion of moderates who might otherwise vote for the GOP. By continually forcing the Republican Party’s ideology to the right, the party’s appeal has therefore narrowed to the point where it is in danger of becoming what its critics have long claimed it to be: a club for old white guys. Even after shattering defeats in 2006 and 2008, it is not entirely clear that the Republicans have abandoned this unfortunate form of self-sabotage.
In contrast, the Democrats have become increasingly confident in recent years. With a cocktail of grass-roots fundamentalism, limousine liberal money and increasing party discipline, the Democrats were seemingly shedding their long-standing (and to no small degree deserved) reputation as the fraternity of do-gooding also-rans. Of Democratic presidents in the second half of the 20th Century, only the empathetic lip-biter, Bill Clinton served two terms (so hold your horses, LBJ apologists–while the legendarily endowed Texan did serve parts of two terms after Kennedy’s assassination in late 1963, he was only elected President once in 1964, stomping arch-conservative Barry Goldwater). Jimmy Carter, the Dem’s other surviving ex-president, is a symbol of the benign impotence of the Democratic Party for much of the second half of the 20th Century.
But with the Clinton Bump in the 90’s, the Democratic takeover of the legislature in 2006 and finally, Obama’s masterful victory over John McCain, it appeared that the Democratic Party had found itself at last after so long in the wilderness, consigning the GOP to bumble its way into obsolescence. The poisonous combination of arrogance and a leadership out of touch with contemporary America led the Republicans to what promised to be their Waterloo in 2008. There was an outpouring hand wringing and gnashing of teeth from GOP loyalists in the days following Obama’s victory, while the Democrats made no attempt to contain their glee. Both sides were heralding the same event: the ugly death of the Republican Party.
This may have been premature. That the Republican Party has not only survived, but is perhaps ascendant, is creditable less to the GOP than to the Democrats themselves. Failing to learn from the opposition’s mistakes, the Democratic Party has ceded authority to a fringe minority, one which shows every evidence of being as crass and autocratic as were the Republicans who preceded it. Despite the very clear will of the people, the Democrats persist in pushing through a big government agenda that Americans fear will fundamentally change the character and nature of the nation, and doom America to generations of economic serfdom.
Unless wiser heads within the party prevail–an outcome by no means certain, 2010 will be a very bad year for the Democrats.
