Just because someone is a doctor doesn't mean they can't be ignorant.

Like, for instance, this complete ass of a "doctor" who is turning people away from his practice if they are liberal, progressive, and/or Democrat.

Nice, huh? I didn't know they could do that.

What do you want to bet this guy ends up on Keith Olbermann's "Worst Persons" next week?

Not good quality video, but still funny as hell

All the better to creep you with, my dear...

HuffPo has an entry on what they're calling The Creepiest Children's Books Ever.

There are indeed many unfortunate titles there, but they missed two or three.

Almost 20 years ago when I was working in a bookstore, some things came in that I have always remembered for how strange it seemed that they were intended for children.

One was this edition of Little Red Riding Hood: Photobucket

It ends with a full-page (possibly double-page), full color illustration of Little Red with the Wolf's jaws clamped around her face. Yes, with blood, IIRC.

Then there was a book which was supposed to teach kids about the order and names of our presidents (at that time, through Bush 1), via this poem (scroll down to 35).

Finally, one of the titles they do mention had a sequel with an even more unfortunate title. The follow-up to this book:

Was called--honest to god, I saw it once at the Wilbur Jr High library--Bigger & Better Boners.

One from on The Hill, and one from out West

Fifty-six percent of respondents said thay disapprove of the [Healthcare] bill, while 42% support it. But only 47% say they want to repeal the bill. Exactly half want the bill to remain law. (23% of respondents want to keep the bill in its current form, while 27% want to make changes to "increase the government's involvement in the nation's health care system.")

News in The Hill.

Who do you root for in a case like this?
