Freedom’s Untidy


Fred and Ed are housemates. They’re hanging out one day and the guy from the funny orange house up the street walks in through the front door. Neither Fred nor Ed seem to notice him. The guy walks up to the second floor, then jumps down to the landing. He lands on the cat. Both cat and neighbor […]

A Coarse Course


Now that the Bush administration has abandoned the moronic phrase they’d pounded into our heads for years and has in fact attempted to claim they never actually used the phrase—these dirty rotten Stalinist hogfuckers—I can’t help but sit down and try to create new, innovative ways for them to wriggle out of this one. My […]

Republigoats Laughed Out Of The Room


Sam Seder conducted a fascinating interview with John Amato of Crooks and Liars. Apparently, it’s not just that Republigoats are down in the polls. They’re also apparently so full of bullshit that people are laughing them out of the room. Hear it for yourself: Embedded MP3

Well Smack My Ass And Call Me Judy


“This list of the bills most likely to be championed by committee chairmen in a Pelosi-led House of Representatives would be great fodder for the latenight talk show hosts if it weren’t true. Instead, it’s just plain scary. While Republicans fight the War on Terror, grow our robust economy, and crack down on illegal immigration, […]

Doubleplus Ungood


We got so stirred up with other issues here at KIAV (such as the odd protuberance that was dangling from the undercarriage of the company car) that we neglected to mark the signing of the Military Commissions Act of 2006 and the resulting odd bloody death of that pesky concept of “recourse to the law.” […]

The Peter Principle


Again, a guest posting from my Dad. * Today I ran across a blog by some guy who had been arrested and beaten up by cops because he carried a sign outside a Dik Chaney rally.? The signs said “Dick is a Dik” or something like that. This is pretty typical behavior of facists…and certainly […]

Sing Along With Mitch


Bob Edwards’ interview recently with reporter John Cheves of the Lexington Herald-Leader has inspired the crack editorial staff here at KIAV to create a brand new category for a single solitary senator: Mitch McConnell. Cheves has been writing a series of articles about McConnell, who will be majority leader in the Senate if the Democrats […]

Signed, Aaron’s Dad


Today, a guest post from my Dear Old Dad, one of the smartest guys I know: I? am distressed that no one in the Democratic party has articulated what seems to me to be the simplest and most direct response to Busch on the ? prosecution of the war on terror. Busch says he is […]

Red Train Theme


I was told that the previous theme was difficult to read by some demographics of KIAV readers. I found and adapted a new theme: Red Train. I like it because it had a graphic I could adapt. It’s still white on a color background, but I think the colors are a bit easier on the […]



A question rolls around in today’s news out of Iraq: How do we stand down when they? stand up if every time they stand up someone? saunters by and swats them in the nuts with a rolled-up City Paper? ? The Iraqi government, you see, has postponed a “reconciliation conference,” which was supposed to have […]
