Hooray Hooray, The First of May ... now go outside &, uh, enjoy yourselves!

"Maybe itís you Ö", Murkin voter, from Homeless on the High Desert.

Badtux the Snarky Penguin applies common sense to conspiracy & "The Jews". P.S.: Are there really nine million of us ruining the planet? Thought it was seven to eight billion. (Either way, the planet is pretty much ruined.)

You may have seen a canvas or two of Jon McNaughton's on the iNternet; TPM's Josh Marshall goes to town on the artiste, who "specializes in a sort of kitschy painting focusing on patriotic and Christian themes. They have a very didactic bent. People from wildly different eras of history side by side in highly didactic group portraits. So youíll have Jesus being shunned at the podium in the House of Representatives or this painting of Moses with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Antonin Scalia, Phyllis Schlafly and others."

From the tip-line, The Psy of Life has a few last (let's hope) words on the W.H.C.D., what Michelle Wolf actually said, & the cognitive psychology involved in the faux outrage.

Bonus track: Ironic Times for the week.
