Update 2:  I. Am. In. Awe.  Over at Moonbattery is an awesome kickbutt satire magazine cover graphic.  Oh golly, is it good.

Update:  NOT WORTHLESS.  You know how Obama keeps placing the blame for everything at Bush’s feet?  He ought to clam up – a lot of people are pining for Bush which would argue that not everyone is convinced a lot of issues don’t lie directly at Obama’s feet:

Perhaps the greatest measure of Obama’s declining support is that just 50% of voters now say they prefer having him as President to George W. Bush, with 44% saying they’d rather have his predecessor. Given the horrendous approval ratings Bush showed during his final term that’s somewhat of a surprise and an indication that voters are increasingly placing the blame on Obama for the country’s difficulties instead of giving him space because of the tough situation he inherited. The closeness in the Obama/Bush numbers also has implications for the 2010 elections. Using the Bush card may not be particularly effective for Democrats anymore, which is good news generally for Republicans and especially ones like Rob Portman who are running for office and have close ties to the former President.

Thanks for the news, Ben Smith.  This ought to cheer many.

THIS may be the most worthless ever but the title of this post refers to stuff after this graphic.  I’m probably going to catch hell for it, but satire is still free, right?

Oh, wow.  Oh geez.  Oh boy.

So…  ****ing…  What?

Gosh, Breitbart, glad you gave us yet more useless data and some scientists figured this one out:

If the data devoured in the United States last year were converted to text there would be enough books to bury the country under a pile seven feet (two meters) deep, according to a study released Wednesday.

Researchers at UC San Diego.  I would like to know if one cent of our tax dollars went to this utterly worthless information.  In the days of video on-line the information is neither surprising nor significant.

Seriously, when a study is reduced to a visual sound-bite like burying the country under seven feet of books, words can’t express how useless it really is.  Aparalyzed 18″ tail would serve me better than that knowledge.

Yeah, I’m in a foul mood today.
