Where the hate is as high as an elephant’s eye

Scott Esk


News Headline: “Oklahoma GOP candidate: Stoning gays the ‘right’ thing to do.”
Scott Esk quotes Leviticus 20:13 to make his point.
He does not quote 1 John 4:20:
“If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar.”
Still looking for a passage on the stoning of self-righteous dimwits.

QT Summer Travel Advisory

Florida Hurricane

News Headline: “Giant 3-foot rats invade Florida Keys.”
News Headline: “Giant snails take over South Florida.”
Add more than 1.2 million Floridians with concealed-carry permits, and you have a vacationer’s paradise.

And fries with that

Competitive Eating

News Headline: “Up to 200,000 Somali children could die from malnutrition.”
News Headline: “A world-ranked competitive eater talks training, hot dogs and vomit.”
The human race?
Still needs work.

Economic indicators

Corporate Boardroom

News Headline: “Italy to include prostitution, illegal drugs in GDP.”
Seems only fair when we’re allowed to include Halliburton.
Not to mention Bank of America.

QT Early Warning System

Earth_RotationThe Sub-Bureau for Rapid Service and Predictions of Earth Orientation of the International Earth Rotation Service has announced that there will be no leap second added to civil time at midnight June 30.
Plan accordingly.

Today’s good news. . . well, in a certain context

Eric Canto

News Headline: “GOP leader Eric Cantor falls to Tea Party challenger.”
Put aside the morning’s political pronouncements–the issues, the personalities, the trends.
Just know that a top incumbent corporate candidate outspent his opponent 25 to 1 and still managed to lose.
So it can be done!
Not every election in this country can be bought!
Just most of them.

The findings are in

Karl Rove

News Headline: “Rove: No regrets on Clinton comments.”
News Headline: “Rats are capable of feeling regret, scientists say.”
See? There is a difference.

Guns don’t shoot students. . . .

Reynolds High School

News Headline: “Active shooting incidents on pace to rise again in 2014.”
News Headline: “Student recounts Oregon school shooting.”
Happy Graduation from the National Rifle Association!

A call to all true patriots. . . .

True Patriots

News Headline: “Vegas shooters’ Facebook warnings: ‘I will willingly die for liberty.’ ”
News Headline: “How much does right-wing rhetoric contribute to right-wing terrorism?”
Just enough to get the job done, evidently.

Why QT may have found a new favorite TV newscaster

Craig Melvin

MSNBC’s Craig Melvin in the closing exchange of a Sunday interview:
Guest: “Thanks for having me.”
Melvin: “Thank you for being had.”
