If You're in L. A. This Weekend

Jason Apuzzo has a spot on column out over at Townhall.

"Hollywood conservatives getting it together
The untold story of those
changing Hollywood from within"

Some Outtakes:

"Over the past thirty-five years, conservatives have grown so accustomed to
using Hollywood as a whipping-post, they occasionally fail to notice positive
developments within the entertainment industry."

"Many of these producers will be speaking at this weekend's conservative Liberty Film Festival in
Hollywood, on panels dealing with film and TV finance, production and
distribution. This sort of gathering of conservative industry professionals has
never taken place before."

"Conservatives justifiably complain that the liberal media isn't getting
the ‘real story’ out about positive change in Iraq. I like to say that
conservatives aren't always getting the ‘real story’ out about positive change
in Hollywood, either. "

You know, it worked in the publishing industry. Up until a few years ago, most conservative writers couldn't even get a meeting with the mainstream publishing houses. But once these businesses realized the profit potential in this vastly untapped sector, they broke their necks to establish new imprints to capitalize on this market. (so much for their ideological integrity)

Too F#%king Funny!!

"The Austrian town of F***ing has erected theft-proof road signs embedded in concrete blocks."

"Officials acted because they were fed up with English-speaking tourists stealing them as souvenirs."

"F***ing always attracts a lot of attention in the summer months, with tourists driving up from nearby Salzburg to pose for pictures in front of the F***ing signs."

Bohemian is amused!

Everybody Must Get Stoned

Stoning for Iranian woman

An Iranian woman has been sentenced to death by stoning, local media reported yesterday, although Tehran maintains it no longer executes women this way. The woman was found guilty of having an affair with her husband's friend. Judiciary officials say stoning sentences are routinely changed to other forms of execution, such as hanging.

Pheeew! They'll just hang her. That makes it all better.

UPDATE: Protein Wisdom wips up some more Iranian "fun with women."

Hail To The Chief?

As you are probably well aware, there are many who would love to see this image (except the plane would be a B747) with this little song wafting in the air.


However, Sec. Rice had this to say while being pestered by Tim Russert:

SEC'Y RICE: Tim, again, I appreciate and I'm flattered that people think of me in those terms, but it's not what I want to do with my life. It's not what I'm going to do with my life.
