Study: Masturbation May Prevent Prostate Cancer

Well, well, well, not only does it not make you blind, but it’s good for you. Yet, I seem to remember hearing about this a while back. I guess it takes several years for anything factual to get to PoxSpews because according to US News And World Report science columnist Ben Harder the findings were actually reported in 2003 and confirmed in 2004. Maybe in a few years, we’ll find out from Fox that there were no WMDs in Iraq…

As for my other penis news, Reuters–Lynchings in Congo as penis theft panic hits capital, it seems sorcerors have been shaking down marks by threatening to magically steal their hoohahs. If they don’t get paid, they do the mumbo-jumbo and OMIGOD my penis is shrinking. Sometimes the mark thinks it disappears entirely. To quote the article: “…when you try to tell the victims that their penises are still there, they tell you that it’s become tiny or that they’ve become impotent. To that I tell them, ‘How do you know if you haven’t gone home and tried it’,” he said.” Maybe we can import some of those sorcerers over here. There’s a few big pricks running around the government and business that badly need downsizing…

(USA Today)Osama bin Laden’s followers mark his 50th birthday on the Web

(Reuters) Democrats cancel Fox News debate

(AP) Obama not riled by Fox chief’s word play

Roger Ailes, former Republican campaign adviser and present Faux News CEO and Chairman, made this joke at the Radio Television News Directors Association and Foundation dinner: “And it is true that Barack Obama is on the move. I don’t know if it’s true that President Bush called Musharraf and said, ‘Why can’t we catch this guy?'” The Democrats are glad to have an excuse not to appear on Faux. But, if you ignore the fact that Ailes is trying to run that Obama/Osama business into the ground, the joke could really be about how stupid Bush is. But I wouldn’t push it that far. Given the bias of Ailes and his so-called News Network, it’s another attempt to exploit the similarity of the names and make Barack Obama look like a foreigner and a terrorist

(60 minutes) Condi: Katie Couric gets to see the many sides of Secretary of State Condoleezza Oh Katie, Katie, there’s such a thing as a softball interview, but damn, this was a nerfball one. Did you even entertain the idea of challenging her on…ummmm…anything? By far, the most interesting interview of the weekend was the one where Bill Clinton handed Chris Wallace his ass on a platter. (WashPost) Chris Wallace, Caught Off Balance?

(AP) Clinton, Fox anchor battle in interview

(AP) Rice challenges Clinton on terror fight

Right now, the rightwing spin machine is both trying to portray Clinton as some kind of raving madman and a liar. Quite frankly, after the number of lies they’ve told about him, I’m surprised he hasn’t decked anyone yet. The lunacy charge is of course an attempt to deflect opinion from the substance of what Clinton said. As for Rice’s weaselly rebuttal, see this article on Media Matters: AP, CNN uncritically reported Rice’s misleading response to Clinton interview

I’d also like to point out once again Keith Olbermann’s COUNTDOWN, the only mainstream media venue that is not jumping on the Party line and trying to give credit and blame where it is due. Clinton wasn’t blameless, but he recognized the threat of Al-Qaeda during his administration and tried to deal with it. The Republican dogpack accused him at the time of trying to deflect attention from that most important of all issues, whether or not he got a blowjob from an intern. The American people at the time, to their credit, responded, who gives a f***? Nonetheless, Clinton wasn’t able to do much about the extremist threat and attempted the handoff to the new administration and got rebuffed…they had more important issues like tax cuts and stem cell lines and missile defense systems to protect us from the now non-existent threat of the Soviet Union. Despite Condi Rice’s claim that they were not presented a plan, they were given an assessment of the dangers of extremist terrorism and a list of actions needed to address those dangers. If that ain’t a plan, I don’t know what is. Olbermann is covering each of these points in detail this week and furthermore has an interview with Bill Clinton that took place right after the Chris Wallace one, so check out the Countdown site for all this…
