Special Olympics does not accept Rahm Emmanuel’s apology for calling someone else effin’ ‘tards.  In response Special Olympics spokesman little Eric Cartman from South Park, Colorado, has a message for Rahm.

Spokesperson Eric Cartman sez "We don't f-ing accept your apology, Rahm."

Yes, I know some of you have retarded friends or family.  So do I.  Retarded folks aren’t the target here – Rahm is.  The episode in question is found here.

Even while they can’t control their own mouths they want to control everyone else’s…

The president’s advice came in answer to a question from Sen. Mike Bennet, D-CO, who is facing a difficult re-election fight back home and wanted to know what Democrats and Republicans can do “to fix this institution so that our democracy can actually withstand the test that we’re facing right now.”

“You know what I think would actually make a difference, Michael? I think if everybody here — excuse all the members of the press who are here — if everybody here turned off your CNN, your Fox, your blogs,” Obama said, before being interrupted by Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-CA, who piped up, “And MSNBC!”


A quick update/detour…

This isn’t news.  Obama advisor Eliseo Medina:

Granting citizenship to millions of illegal immigrants would expand the “progressive” electorate and help ensure a “progressive” governing coalition for the long term, declared a recent adviser to President Obama whose union group is among the most frequent visitors to the White House.

Come on, WND – seems to me that this is pretty obvious stuff.
Let’s take a poll.

Note: Aggie Sith is right… this is a conflicted poll. I’m not experienced at it yet. Answer whichever one most feels like “you”. If you answer “dead patriotic” it means that yes you saw it coming and you aren’t happy – not happy at all.

On Drudge…

CBSNEWS anchorwoman and 60 MINUTES contributor Katie Couric faces a dramatic pay cut at the network...[snip]

Couric, the highest paid TV news personality in history, commands over $14 million a year...[snip]...a populist backlash against Couric's cash is said to be forming inside the newsroom.

"She makes enough to pay 200 news reporters $75,000 a year!" demands a veteran producer. [snip] The angry source continues: "We report with great enthusiasm how much bankers are making, how it is out of step with reality during a recession. Well, look at Katie!"

Just last night I was watching South Park’s More Crap episode.  Every 2-1/2 of crap in one “load” is one unit in the measurement scale for such things.  Guess what the measurement unit is?  Not pounds, kilos, or anything like that.

1 Katie Couric = 2.5 lbs of crap

Yes, a 10lb pile of crap is 4 Katie Courics.

Later in that piece…  Surely Godfather, you will help us in our time of need after all these years we have been loyal to you…

EDITOR'S NOTE: Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather called on President Barack Obama to form a White House commission to help save the press. Tears welled in the lifelong reporter’s eyes as he discussed the dwindling number of war correspondents.

Origami lenses.  Concept isn’t new.  But I hadn’t actually seen them.

Those two pictures should be enough to make you run for a cold shower or some amorous liason with the person/species of your choice (I’m not judging here).

Think of a zone plate but nothing like it and light-years beyond in coolness.

I’ve got photon-envy, this is such a cool way of doing it.  Abberation theory might get a bit deep with all the folds and stuff but I’d suffer through it to get my hands on one of these.   Several holographic setups would have been easier because of tight space constraints.
