    No need to denounce yourself Wombat. Rihanna and Miley are simply in a contest to see who can demonstrate the worst fashion taste.

    I think a cleavage requires more clothes.

    Snow Crash, for me, is one of the best SF books written in the last 20 years. Ender’s Game to me is the best of the post Heinlein books.

    Neal got his history wrong on WW2. Huks were never our “friends” they hated the Japs but also us. Anyone who knows the history of the Corps knows why we have 45 not 44 – Huks!

    Wrong post, but thank you for the comment.

  • Wombat_socho

    Miley wins that, hands down.

  • Quartermaster

    Both are pretty tasteless and low class.

    President Obama’s speech at Rhode Island College today flew under the media radar for the most part, but the folks at Breitbart did catch an interesting statement from the president on the lack of public pre-school. Sometimes, someone, usually Mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result,” the president told his audience. “That’s not a choice we want Americans to make.”

    It’s almost anti-climactic for me after the unearthing of the old Simone de Bouvier quote, but it’s still nice to see someone thoroughly in the modern mainstream come right out and say it. What can the NAFALTs do now — denounce their own Feminist-in-Chief?
