Bin Laden's Porn Stash - UPDATED

When I first heard that there had been a discovery of pornography at the Osama Bin Laden compound I was shocked... for about a millisecond.

The pornography recovered in bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, consists of modern, electronically recorded video and is fairly extensive, according to the officials, who discussed the discovery with Reuters on condition of anonymity.
What kind of porn would Osama Bin Laden be watching? Here are some titles I came up with:

Alima Does Afghanistan
G-String Jihad
Ali Baba and the 40 Sluts
Burka Babes 23
Sodom Huss-anal

...and of course the classic...

Weapons of Ass Destruction.

This is fun. What titles can you come up with?

UPDATE: Here are some more:

Department of Homeland Suckyourtitty

Reader and commenter Nowhereman came up with:

Deep Goat
Abu Grab Ass
Lawrence Does Arabia

Mike Huckabee's Revisionist History Lesson

[Mike] Huckabee has launched a new educational company called Learn Our History that aims to get kids excited about studying the nation's past.
...The first volume in the series highlights the Reagan era, where the characters experience the 1980 presidential election and President Ronald Reagan's "Tear Down This Wall" speech in Berlin.
The cartoon features some amusing and sometimes alarming retrospective of how things went down. In a clip, the teenagers encounter on the streets of Washington a dark-skinned mugger clad in a "Disco" muscle shirt and armed with a knife, demanding money. Other scenes of violence unfold before Reagan appears like a white knight with a message of hope and optimism.

...You know, because that's exactly how it all went down.

I can't wait for these future installments:

~ Native American Genocide
~ American Slavery
~ Japanese Internment During World War II

...and who can forget:
~ The Iran-Contra Affair

The Common Controversy

There isn't much to add here because it's completely covered by Jon Stewart and his writing staff at The Daily Show. They are geniuses.

So Much For The Fiscally Conservative Tea Party

William Temple, Chairman of the Tea Party Founding Fathers, made it very clear how economically conservative is his brand of Tea Party politics. Any increase in the debt ceiling is a big, fat NO. Unless of course Don't Ask Don't Tell is reinstated in the military. You know, because the DADT repeal is somehow adding to the deficit...

Temple, who addressed the audience in his trademark colonial garb, is organzing the Tea Party Freedom Jamboree this fall in Kansas City. He railed against Boehner and the GOP leadership in his speech, calling them "wimpy RINOs" and even attacked Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-WI) Medicare-destroying plan passed by the House last month as a "so-called 'courageous' budget"
Temple is 100% opposed to raising the debt ceiling, and said that how members vote on the issue will be the sole item on the tea party scorecard when it comes to rating candidates in 2012. Vote for the increase, you get a zero. Vote against it, you get a 100. Apparently it's that simple.
But even Temple said he understood a compromise might be coming. So he offered a long list of things the Republicans could do that would lead the "tea party movement as a whole" to "possibly forgive Boehner and the House Republicans a small bump in the debt limit."
On the list was keeping the front lines of America's wars as free of openly gay people and women of any sexual leaning as possible.
See? Even crazy, costume wearing teabaggers have their price. Of course, it has nothing to do with economics, so we now know where this one stands. Here is absolute proof that he's a homophobe and a misogynist. There still isn't proof that he's racist yet, but I'm sure that'll come soon enough.

Does Limbaugh Ever Get Tired of Being Wrong?

Rush Limbaugh today railed against the Obama administration and their plans to be able to alert you via the FCC of disasters through your cell phone. There's only one problem:

This plan was authored by Tea Party poster boy, Jim DeMint in 2006 and passed by Congress and also supported by an executive order signed by President Bush. In 2006 the GOP controlled all of Congress and the White House. This is a GOP plan, not a Democratic one.

Did he actually read about this other than from his faxed talking points? Or did he purposely omit the fact that this national emergency alert system has been in the works for five years?

He's such a funny jester.

Is This A Joke?

The question is rhetorical.

Raw Replay: House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) told NBC’s Matt Lauer Tuesday that tax hikes were “off the table” in negotiations with Democrats over raising the debt ceiling.
In a speech to Wall Street Monday, the Speaker insisted on trillions in spending cuts in exchange for raising the nation’s borrowing limit.

Look, we can argue whether spending cuts to crucial programs during the slow recovery of such a disastrous recession is a good idea or not, but don't try to pull the wool over our eyes with this "we don't have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem" talking point mumbo jumbo. When corporations can get away with paying practically no taxes because of loopholes and the richest 1% of the country pays less in taxes on percentage than the entire middle class, then yes, there's a fucking revenue problem. So fix it.

"I'm a regular guy with a big job." You sure are, Johnny. And exposing your lack of leadership by not standing up to the Tea Party freshmen who are out for your head, shows you're way in over your head.

ADDING... While the Speaker claimed Republicans are addressing the debt...
Ryan Admitted Plan Added $8 Trillion to Debt . According to an initial analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), they found that by the end of the 10 year budget window, public debt would actually be higher. CBO projected under current law the debt would balloon to 67 percent of GDP by 2022; “under Ryan’s plan, the CBO expects it to rise to 70 percent.” Ryan had to reassure conservatives “disappointed that his plan still adds $8 trillion in debt while failing to balance the budget for at least two decades.” [Congressional Budget Office, 4/5/11; The Atlantic, 4/6/11; The Hill, 4/5/11]
EDITORIAL: GOP Budget isn’t a “Serious Answer” to the Deficit Problem. “The deficit is a serious problem, but the Ryan plan is not a serious answer.” [New York Times Editorial, 4/6/11]
House Republicans Voted to End Medicare.  The Wall Street Journal wrote, “The plan would essentially end Medicare, which now pays most of the health-care bills for 48 million elderly and disabled Americans, as a program that directly pays those bills.” [H Con. Res. 34, Vote #277, 4/15/11; Wall Street Journal, 4/4/11]

Quote of the Day

"The House of Representatives passing a bill that redefines rape and could force the IRS to check to see if women had abortions for the right reasons. It's not that a brutal assault on the rights of women isn't important. It's not that we shouldn't bash all the Republicans, every one of them, who voted for it. No, it's that the House of Representatives has decided that it is merely going to publicly masturbate for its most extremist constituents, recklessly passing shit that has absolutely no way to get through the Senate, let alone the President. So whatever they do is merely fodder for nutzoid right-wing fundraising. They're already bailing on the Medicare "reform" they just passed almost unanimously. They're worthless, disembodied cocks and cunts."
~ The Rude Pundit on things he won't be talking about because it's just too stupid, so why bother?
