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.

Capturing bad guys isn’t what it used to be.  Detectives are less and less a necessity.

Key identifiers in a fingerprint make uniqueness but are not truly needed anymore.

DNA is unique, even if damaged, but it just doesn’t bring in the bad guys like it used to.

spongYet the rate of apprehension is at an all-time high.

Why is this true?

Investigation, fingerprints, dna… youtubeFacebook.

Getting a DUI on a motorized barstool on youtubeMurder of pedophile priests in prison on youtube. (can you say amen no great loss)  Ther are Dominoes workers looking for a new place of gainful employment after filming themselves being idiots and posting it on youtube.

It boils down to the median brain weight has dropped precipitously over the years.  Below are two pictures.  One is a highly effective genetic freak Cranky brain (which we will call our baseline “Normal”), and one is a troglodyte brain.

6MB did not approve of the creation of this graphic, but they would have if I asked. Pretty sure. Maybe. No, they would've.

Maybe brains have not gone to 6MB because they have been going to worship services like below…

UPDATE:  If Obama is going to go releasing records of all stripes in targeted strikes of “transparency” I have to agree with Cheney – let’s really be transparent.

Like the recent Democrat-controlled Congress and Obama’s oily statements that the truth must be out about CIA interrogations, how so much was obscured.

Nope.  Disclosure was pretty much all-around.

The first such briefing dealt with the interrogation of Abu Zubaydah, the Al Qaeda operations chief who ran the training camps in Afghanistan where the Sept. 11 hijackers were trained. Sources said California Rep. Nancy Pelosi, now the speaker of the House, attended the meeting with then-Rep. Porter Goss, R-Fla. (who later became CIA director), and she did not raise any objections.

The briefings were given to the chairmen and ranking members of the intelligence committees in the House and Senate until 2006. That could cover Sen. John Rockefeller, W.Va., and Rep. Jane Harman, Calif., both Democrats, as well as Sen. Pat Roberts, Kan., Sen. Lindsey Graham, S.C., Sen. Richard Shelby, Ala., and Rep. Pete Hoekstra, Mich., all Republicans. FoxNews

But it’s easier to shift blame if stuff happened years ago and you’ve got a lot of distracted people.  It makes revenge that much easier to perform and later justify.
