One more thang...

Have we blogged the Pat Robertson thang to death yet? My, the bloggers jumped all over that one like flies to a dead carcass. Well, anyhoo, The Lord works in mysterious ways and He musta been chuckling at those politically sophisticated folks who think about Christianity, two, mebbe three times a year, and who never pray and who never before blogged about religion, but who all of a sudden want to proclaim to the blogosphere that Pat Robertson is a damn hypocrite. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

It's amusing because the Lord knows that all of us, believers and non-believers, Christian Lefties, commie lefties, and the Religious Right, all of us are committed to peace and non-violence, right? Uh, right?

Wait a minute. Is that a trick question?


...And what is wrong with this one?

Public Service Announcements

Would you like to see an animated video of how pregnancy happens? Here ya go.

And I would like to know if this shirt is as offensive or more offensive than what Pat Robertson did this week.

Thanks to daily dose of insanity for the links.

Yesterday, it was Pat Robertson. Today, this story made Blue Gal laugh out loud.

Also thinking a lot about Comrade Jesus today. Maybe he's giving Pat Robertson a call:

Pat Robertson, you make me wee my panties!

kill the bastards!

You may not know it, but Blue Gal is a believing Christian. I love that sermon on the mount shit. Really. This from Wilkipedia:

Probably the best-known portion is the Beatitudes, found at the beginning of the section. It also contains the Lord's Prayer and the injunctions to "resist not evil" and "turn the other cheek", as well as Jesus's version of the Golden Rule. Other lines often quoted are the references to "salt of the Earth" "light of the world," and "judge not, lest ye be judged." Many Christians believe that the Sermon on the Mount is a form of commentary (midrash) on the Ten Commandments.To many the Sermon on the Mount contains the central tenets of Christian discipleship, and is considered as such by many religious and moral thinkers, such as Tolstoy and Gandhi.

So Pat Robertson wants the US to assassinate the President of Venezuela. He said so on television. Blue Gal is not making this up. IN FACT, Blue Gal can't stop laughing. Pat Robertson, when was the last time you read your New Testament, huh?

Oh, and to those who don't want us lefties to play the children card, (see comments to previous posts) once again Martian Anthropologist makes interesting reading today, tho' not for the faint of heart.

Some have claimed that the blogosphere just allows all of us to read those who agree with our own views. Look, Blue Gal is linking to and showing a picture of Pat Robertson's new world order book!

One more thing: let's all Google "Downing Street Memo" and "Valerie Plame" just for old time's sake.

Four more years? Uh, look again at your Barbie dream watch...


Blue Gal just loooves The New York Times. Maureen Dowd (goddess) on August 20:

...You know you're in trouble when Henry Kissinger gives you advice on how to exit a war....

Domestic support [for the war] is waning because the president remains too stubbornly ensconced in his fantasy world - it's worse than Barbie in her dream house - to reassure Americans that he has a plan to get out.

As we approach the 2,000 mark of coffins coming home that we're not allowed to see, it doesn't even look like a war. It looks like a lot of kids being blown to smithereens by an invisible enemy.

And this just in from the AP: The Army is planning for four more years in Iraq. Uh, memo to Barbie in her dream house: YOU haven't got four more years. The clock is ticking on my sidebar, honey.

Naughty Naughty

The Onion gets a little naughty this week. Probably read Blue Gal's previous post and decided to up their traffic, too. Too bad those kind of surfers would have a hard time spelling the v word.

Blue Gal's been listening to internet radio today: The Egg. Jury still out.

Her blog has a regular reader in...gasp, Dallas, Texas. J.R.? Poppa Bush? Some spy? Make yourself known, Dallas! We don't trust Texans round here, 'less yer a transplant like Blue Gal.

Of course one Texan we can never trust. I hate to say it folks, but it's 1969 again. Time to stand up and OPPOSE THIS WAR.

Thank you, Martian Anthropologist. Couldn't have said it better.

Blue Gal's dirty little secret

Blue Gal is using Stat Counter to learn where her fandom is coming from (but not your real identities, more's the shame). 

 Anyway, apart from Blogexplosion, the majority of readers of Blue Gal lately have come from search engines. And to you searchers all Blue Gal can say is, 

panties, panties, panties, panties, panties. 

 If I'd known just one mention of panties would bring so much traffic, I would have called my blog "Blue Gal's panties in a Red State wad". Thanks for stopping by! Just remember...

Happy Birthday


He's earned the admiration of some simply by surviving. Plus, it goes with the whole "I hate freedom" leitmotif of this blog. Are your ears on, Rummy?

"It's True, You Boys..." For Girls only.


Okay, Boys do not have to read this post. It's a girl thang you wouldn't understand blah blah blah.

'Kay. First of all, Blue Gal admires anyone who can make a strong and valid argument as to why tampons should be free.

Now that the boys have really left the building, how bout those paralympic rugby players? So hot. This nanny would have a hard time picking between Scott Hogsett and Jude Law. Karen, that Murderball was filmed in BIRMINGHAM. Glad I did not know that then. Ahem.

Finally, Girls. Get a load of a gentleman named sp3ccylad. Here's his answer to Blogger's random question:

You've rented a sky-writer to propose to your significant other, but it's completely overcast. What will you do?

Sack the sky-writer. Hire Michaelangelo instead.

Oh. We love him. Oh yes we do.

And if you are male, and you are still reading this, here is a present for you.

Burning out, burning up

Has Blue Gal lost her footing, the meaning, her focus?

Shouldn't this blog be more Angry and Outraged? And What's With the Knitting Mumbo Jumbo?

Look, it's time to look ahead to the future, ya know, adopt that cute blue mascot and WIN ONE IN 2008!


Except, uh, and I really hate to be the one to point this out, Mr. Dean, but Blue the Donkey reminds me way too much of this retired guy:


And also sorry, Blue Gal is just burning out on the whole insidious evil of the current admin.

Did she just say that?

in other news...

You mean to tell me that even Anakin Skywalker got made by the Presbyterian Church? Wait, I thought only Catholics were having those kinda problems. But here's irrefutable proof:

Oh, here. It's funny and it's from Beirut. Go figure.

Sunday, August 7

Hey, that's just not funny.


"President Bush says he believes Rafael Palmeiro when he says he didn't take steroids, even though he tested positive for them. You know, that whole "weapons of mass destruction" thing is beginning to make more sense now."

That's not funny, but the looks your car is gonna get with this...

New Rules

Blue Gal is back in the Red State and my oh my what a Red State it is. Just when Blue Gal thought we couldn't get more fascist, John Bolton gets a recess appointment! You're not allowed on MY teeter totter, Johnny.

So Karen sent me this:


Well, Blue Gal knew the rule about never wear your panties to a party, but she also saves her special panties for special occasions. So what panties will John Bolton wear to his first day at the U.N.? Post your entries here and Blue Gal will announce a winner sometime in the future!
