Charles Johnson writes:

The Republican Party invariably chooses to vote against science, and in favor of atavism and young earth creationism — not just in Texas, either. What a sad state of affairs; it’s one reason why the GOP continues to lose elections, and is hemorrhaging voters.

He's right. I wish he wasn't.

She just wanted to make it snow

My heart goes out to this poor girl, she's so upset and hysterical. Unfortunately, she's also hysterically funny. NSFW language at end:

Liberals Love to Lose

When liberals lose, it enables them to feel more superior than they naturally feel. It affords them the opportunity to bitch about injustice and unfairness.

When they win, hell, it was a fair fight. They never, while basking in the glow of a victory, say, “Whew. Thank God the unfairness worked out in our favor this time!” or “The voting machines finally worked!”

This morning, I participated in a Scooter Rally, which was a lot of fun. Here's some video I took of the assembled scooters before we started:

If it seems like I only blog from the bar these days, it's probably true because that's where you meet the most interesting folks.

Like Larry Wexler, the creator of the XLR8 SolarCycle, a solar powered car entered in the Progressive Automotive XPrize.

Update: Interestingly, Instapundit has a story about an XPrize entrant as well.

Goodbye, Krystal

Krystal has been a bartender at Orlando Brewing for two-and-a-half-years, and she's moving to Tennessee next week. Our loss is Nashville's gain.

The Sensuous Curmudgeon has penned an Open Letter to the Republican Party, that I hope they will read, consider, and take to heart.

Because I agree with every word, including these:

If a politician’s principal issues are sex and religion, and he wants to campaign with a bible in one hand and his carnal concerns in the other, that’s his choice; but he should know that this approach — although thrilling to a vocal faction of the party — isn’t attractive to a broad majority of the population. If you feel that you must campaign on those issues, please do it as a member of the other party. In most parts of the country you’re going to lose either way, but you’ll still feel good, and at least you won’t be hurting us.

Pious gratitude to: LGF

This looks cool!
