Louis C.K. on Blasphemy In my opinion, Louis C.K. is the best comic since Bill Hicks. For example: Are White People Racially Oppressed?

Irrational Atheists The difference is to try and recognize your own tendencies and correct them accordingly.

Bachmann "Suspends" Campaign After Losing Big in Iowa I’ll miss Crazy Eyes and Ladybird. They were fun in their own quirky, bigoted, Christo-facist way.
