Because women are just vagina transportation devices

John O'Sullivan at National Review has some observations respecting the Obama campaign's view of women:
One of the most striking oddities of the Obama campaign’s appeal to women, indeed, is how it not only objectifies them but even reduces them to their “lady parts.” The campaign might even be called “The Vagina Dialogues” since it talks to women as if they were walking, talking, and voting vaginas with no other value or interests. This view of women is exactly the same as the view held (and once, but no longer, expressed) by the most brutalized, vulgar, and exploitative male chauvinists. Many women in all demographic groups, but especially postgraduate women, are likely to find this approach demeaning and repellent even when they support the actual policies it promotes.

News You Can Use: Hurricane Preparation Edition

"'Over the course of their experience with hurricanes, Walmart has learned that Strawberry Pop-Tarts are one of the most purchased food items, especially after storms, as they require no heating, can be used at any meal, and last forever,' Steve Horwitz, an economist at St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y., who studied Walmart's response to Hurricane Katrina, told ABC News."

You do the math

The Nobel Peace Prize for 2012:
The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2012 is to be awarded to the European Union (EU). The union and its forerunners have for over six decades contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe.
Hmmmm . . . . 2012 minus 70 years brings us to . . . 1942.

The Looming Bacon Shortage

CBS reports:
Britain's National Pig Association, "the voice of the British pig industry," warned recently that a global shortage of bacon and pork "is now unavoidable" because of shrinking herds.
The trade group reported Thursday that annual pig production for Europe's main pig producers fell across the board between 2011 and 2012, a trend that "is being mirrored around the world." The group tied the decline to increased feed costs, an effect of poor harvests for corn and soybeans.
As a public service, here are a few pointers on how to respond to this crisis, from survivalist expert Ron Swanson.

This Should End Well

The Daily Beast repeats rumors and leaks and speculation thusly:
President Obama has vowed to bring justice to those behind the Sept. 11 attacks in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, but the president hasn’t chosen what kind of justice that will be. Five administration officials tell The Daily Beast that the White House is now weighing whether to pursue those responsible through law enforcement or via military means like drone strikes or special operations.
We're just speculating ourselves, but a surgical strike by a Predator drone with a Hellfire missile on this guy seems likely:

Beyond Parody

"Media critic" Howard Kurtz has his compression shorts in a bunch over Ann Romney's impending gig hosting Good Morning America.  His objection isn't so much that it's a stunt by all concerned, but that only "journalists" should occupy that sort of exalted chair.  Stephen Colbert and Oprah, for instance.

The Path to Full Employment

If people keep dropping out of the labor force because they can't find a job, and others continue to accept part-time employment because they can't find a full-time job, eventually hardly anyone will be working, no one will be looking for work, and the unemployment rate will be zero. Winning!

October 2: The Feast of the Guardian Angels

"Memoria sanctorum Angelorum Custodum, qui, primum ad contemplandam in splendore faciem Dei vocati, a Domino etiam apud homines commissi sunt, ut iis invisibili sua, sed sollicita, praesentia adessent ac consulerent."

"Memorial of the holy Guardian Angels (the first to be called to look upon the face of God in splendor) were also sent by the Lord to be with men, that as an unseen yet careful presence they might watch over them."
