Then I came home and read the headlines on Memeorandum. Now I'm certain that the world has just gone run-over-dog crazy.
"Netflix Becomes 30th Advertiser to Drop Rush Limbaugh" Seriously?! This just blows my mind. All this because he called Sandra Fluke a slut? Am I missing something? The woman goes before Congress and opens up her sex life to public scrutiny, complains that she can't afford birth control for all the sex she is having, and Rush Limbaugh is the bad guy because he called her out on it? And who on this planet does not realize that most of Rush Limbaugh's remarks are satirical? Political correctness is ruining this country. Plain and simple. Insane. If Sandra Fluke didn't want the heat she shouldn't have lit the match. And shame on all those advertisers who are caving to this insanity.
The next thing that caught my eye was a story about Bin Laden not really being buried at sea. Apparently it was all fabricated and Bin Laden was spirited into the US on a CIA plane. WTF?! I'll just quote Althouse on this one:
So we had this respectful burial at sea, which was intended to impress/mollify/appease whomever, and now it turns out it never happened. I think messages of respect can be meaningful, even if they are lies, but they must be believed. The messenger needs a reputation for honesty. And the exposure of one lie — especially one this big — makes all your other messages suspect.
And then, there's the Huffington Post seemingly defending wife beating under the Qur'an. You can't put too much stock in an article by a guy who doesn't even know proper grammar:
Critics incorrectly allege that Islam command's husband's to beat their wives, often citing the Quran verse 4:34. [sic]
And finally, apparently the pill is actually an economic "stimulus"! Ha! Who knew?
Don't tell that to Sandra Fluke.
