Guaranteed To Make RWNJ Heads EXPLODE



A painting that features President Obama posed as Jesus Christ crucified on a cross is on display at a community college art gallery in Boston.

The painting by Michael D’Antuono is part of a larger exhibit called “Artists on the Stump – the Road to the White House 2012.” It’s on display at the Bunker Hill Community College Art Gallery until Dec. 15th.

The painting is called “Truth” – and shows the president on the cross with his arms outstretched. A crown of thorns rests on his head.

-snip-

“The crucifixion of the president was meant metaphorically,” he told Fox News. “My intent was not to compare him to Jesus.”
D’Antuono blamed the controversy on conservative media “trying to promote the idea that liberals believe the president to literally be our savior.”

Here Is What Louisiana Schoolchildren Learn About Evolution







Dear Marco Rubio, the age of the Earth is not in "Dispute".

Meet the New face of the GOP — Marco Rubio. Same as the old face of the GOP. Anti-science and pro-ignorance. Apparently they took away the wrong lessons in the last election and decided to double down on flat-earth stupidity where the jury is still out on things such as evolution, geologic age of the Earth, Climate change, and gravity.

GQ: How old do you think the Earth is?

Marco Rubio: I'm not a scientist, man. I can tell you what recorded history says, I can tell you what the Bible says, but I think that's a dispute amongst theologians and I think it has nothing to do with the gross domestic product or economic growth of the United States. I think the age of the universe has zero to do with how our economy is going to grow. I'm not a scientist. I don't think I'm qualified to answer a question like that. At the end of the day, I think there are multiple theories out there on how the universe was created and I think this is a country where people should have the opportunity to teach them all. I think parents should be able to teach their kids what their faith says, what science says. Whether the Earth was created in 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I'm not sure we'll ever be able to answer that. It's one of the great mysteries.


Rubio thinks he is not qualified to answer a simple question which is known to 5th graders.
A google search gives you the answer, just as it would to a simple math query.

Not qualified, indeed.

This is from the December issue of GQ

When the Nerds Go Marching In: Obama's Tech Engineers


(l-r) Harper Reed, Dylan Richard, Mark Trammell

The Obama campaign's technologists were tense and tired. It was game day and everything was going wrong.

Josh Thayer, the lead engineer of Narwhal, had just been informed that they'd lost another one of the services powering their software. That was bad: Narwhal was the code name for the data platform that underpinned the campaign and let it track voters and volunteers. If it broke, so would everything else.

They were talking with people at Amazon Web Services, but all they knew was that they had packet loss. Earlier that day, they lost their databases, their East Coast servers, and their memcache clusters. Thayer was ready to kill Nick Hatch, a DevOps engineer who was the official bearer of bad news. Another of their vendors, StallionDB, was fixing databases, but needed to rebuild the replicas. It was going to take time, Hatch said. They didn't have time.

They'd been working 14-hour days, six or seven days a week, trying to reelect the president, and now everything had been broken at just the wrong time. It was like someone had written a Murphy's Law algorithm and deployed it at scale.

And THAT was the point. "Game day" was October 21. The election was still 17 days away, and this was a live action role playing (LARPing!) exercise that the campaign's chief technology officer, Harper Reed, was inflicting on his team. "We worked through every possible disaster situation," Reed said. "We did three actual all-day sessions of destroying everything we had built."

Hamas Fires Into Israel, IDF Responds with Strike on Ahmed Jabari, Head of Hamas Military Wing



I'm losing track of how many Republicans are involved in the Petraeus scandal.

So far is it: Petraeus, Broadwell, FBI agent, Eric Cantor, and a whistleblower? Is Jill Kelley? Are there more whistleblowers? This is getting very bizarre and very republican (the 2 aren't really mutually exclusive). How many Republicans involved? Who am I missing?
