“Analysis of the fact that Ryan can lie the way he does requires the skills of a psychologist. All I can say is that we’re in new territory—a Republican trying to own a Democratic issue, and doing so on the basis of a couple of lies so blatant that he’s practically saying to the Democrats and the media: ‘Fuck you, come and get me. You can’t touch me.’”—Michael Tomasky, arguing that Paul Ryan pushed American politics into new territory with last night’s convention speech, effectively daring Democrats and the media to call him out on his string of blatant falsehoods.

'Adolescent-onset cannabis users showed significant I.Q. declines, and more persistent use was associated with greater declines,' said the lead author, Madeline H. Meier, a postdoctoral researcher at Duke University.
The study participants who used marijuana heavily from high school through age 38 scored 8 points lower on an I.Q. test than they had when originally tested, as 13-year-olds. I.Q. scores are usually very stable, and those who did not use marijuana or started as adults showed no real change, averaging about 100.

F*ck my education.
What the hell is this article talking about? You know what’s not funny? Someone who is hot and knows they are hot talking about the fact that they are hot. MALE OR FEMALE. It’s pretentious. Justin Timberlake makes me laugh on SNL when he is being self-deprecating or wearing silly outfits or playing an undesirable character. That doesn’t mean I don’t know he is hot. Same with Tina Fey. Her character can make stupid choices… but I know Tina Fey is smart and attractive. I don’t want to hear her talk about that though because IT’S NOT FUNNY.
I guess if we are talking about some male/female divide on this, there is more pressure in the society at large for women to be seen as sexy? I just don’t think most female comedians care about fitting into that social stereotype. Then I think about Olivia Munn, who I have very mixed feelings about… I don’t know, what do you guys think? Comediennes, do you wish you could be sexier? I know I don’t. That shit makes me uncomfortable.
Age is cruel to women, and subordination is cruel to men. Ellen Kullman is a very pretty woman, but at 56 years of age she probably would not turn a lot of heads in a college bar, and the fact that she is the chairman and CEO of Dupont isn’t going to change that….
It is a curious scientific fact (explained in evolutionary biology by the Trivers-Willard hypothesis — Willard, notice) that high-status animals tend to have more male offspring than female offspring, which holds true across many species, from red deer to mink to Homo sap. The offspring of rich families are statistically biased in favor of sons — the children of the general population are 51 percent male and 49 percent female, but the children of the Forbes billionaire list are 60 percent male. Have a gander at that Romney family picture: five sons, zero daughters. Romney has 18 grandchildren, and they exceed a 2:1 ratio of grandsons to granddaughters (13:5). When they go to church at their summer-vacation home, the Romney clan makes up a third of the congregation. He is basically a tribal chieftain.
Professor Obama? Two daughters. May as well give the guy a cardigan. And fallopian tubes.
From an evolutionary point of view, Mitt Romney should get 100 percent of the female vote. All of it. He should get Michelle Obama’s vote. You can insert your own Mormon polygamy joke here, but the ladies do tend to flock to successful executives and entrepreneurs.
This is the first article I’ve seen from comedy writer Kevin Williamson, but I hope there’s more coming! I think he’s a writer for a UCB Maude team? I don’t know for sure, but he kills it!
Here’s another hilarious joke he makes later on:
There are lots of children of rich and powerful men who do not turn out to be 0.01 percent as successful as Mitt Romney has. Meghan McCain’s father is a rich guy and a failed presidential candidate, just like Mitt’s. Anybody think Meghan McCain’s life is going to turn out like Mitt Romney’s?
LOL! GET IT? OF COURSE MEGHAN MCCAIN WILL NEVER BE AS SUCCESSFUL AS ROMNEY… SHE IS A WOMAN! AND HER BEAUTY IS FLEETING! LOLOLOL ROFL
