Before we get to the cartoons, I have to share this magnificent set of links for you.

Miss Universe 2013 National Costumes – Part 2 | Tom & Lorenzo

T Lo has just nailed it on these costume commentaries…so much so, that I highly recommend you take a look at the entire ensemble of pictures that, as Tom & Lorenzo put it:

Time once again for a grand T Lo tradition of bitchery and stereotyping, as we check in on the greatest (or at least the largest) international drag revue the world has ever seen, darlings! It’s the Miss Universe National Costumes Parade!

Hit it, strippers!

Miss USA

“AMERICA! Due to the decimation of our manufacturing base and the destruction of our middle class, we don’t make cars anymore! We make movies about cars that turn into robots. BOOYAH, MOTHERFUCKERS! Forefathers! Constitution! FUCKING FREEDOM, AMIRITE?”

Awesome….now go to the links and check out the Miss Brazil.  Oh…I think you will find it spot on in its description.

  1. Have a great evening, tonight is the last home game for the Panthers…so I will be freezing my ass of out there in the Banjoville night.

    The cartoon at the top doesn’t have the Iraq war on it either.

  3. List of X says:

    The cartoons were good, but the dresses link was even better. They must have wiped out the entire peacock population of Central America to make all those feathery dresses.

  4. RalphB says:

    Manchin, Pryor, and Landrieu have to be the biggest chickenshits in the Senate.

  5. RalphB says:

    “If you know someone who is uninsured, or buys her own insurance in the individual market– and lives in Texas, North Carolina, Missouri, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, or Alabama – chances are greater than 1 in 3 that under Obamacare she will qualify for health insurance that will cost her nothing. That’s right—her government tax credit will cover the entire premium.” Maggie Mahar in Health Beat.

    Wendy, Wemdy, Wendy …

    A fresh approach to being ‘pro-life’

    Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), a leading gubernatorial candidate, made a campaign stop in Brownsville, Texas, and offered voters her take on reproductive rights. As Wayne Slater reported, Davis doesn’t see her support for abortion rights as incompatible with her concern for life.

    “I am pro-life,” she said, borrowing a phrase from anti-abortion activists. “I care about the life of every child: every child that goes to bed hungry, every child that goes to bed without a proper education, every child that goes to bed without being able to be a part of the Texas dream, every woman and man who worry about their children’s future and their ability to provide for that future. I care about life and I have a record of fighting for people above all else.”

    This hasn’t gone over well on the right. Breitbart’s report called Davis’ perspective “astonishing,” while Hot Air described the Texan’s argument as “ludicrous.”

    There’s no reason, however, the politically charged phrase can’t be expanded to be more inclusive – including concern for babies after they’re born. Wendy Davis has an uphill fight ahead of her, but she’s already confronting hot-button issues in creative ways.

    This morning, count from Yolanda is 1,200………………..we expected it to be in the thousands.
