Jill Edwards, Student Dunce

Jill Edwards is a student at The University of Washington. Jill Edwards is also a student senator at The University of Washington. Now, after reading the minutes of the February 7th general Senate meeting, Jill Edwards demonstrates that she is also a dunce (that's ignoramus for you dunces).

When discussing a resolution to call for a tribute for Col. Gregory “Pappy” Boyington, USMC, the minutes of the meeting state that she "didn’t believe a member of the Marine Corps was an example of the sort of person UW wanted to produce." Since Ms. Edwards doesn’t believe that a person who endured lousy food, primitive living conditions, hardship, torture and imminent death in service to his country and in defense of his fellow citizens isn’t “an example of the sort of person UW wanted to produce,” perhaps she was thinking of some other sort of person that UW actually has produced. For example, how about Dawn Wells, the one and only Mary Ann of Gilligan’s Island? I’m sure Boyington’s war-time experiences on real Pacific islands were nothing compared to her time on that fictional Hollywood island. Or how about Kitty Kelley, the "queen" of unauthorized biographies? I’m sure it is much more harrowing to dig up dirt on the rich and famous than it is to actually live a harrowing life as did Col. Boyington!

The real issue here should be is Jill Edwards “the sort of person” that UW wants to produce?

How To Earn A Fatwa Without Really Trying

Take a peek over at The Amazing Retecool and you can see dozens of hilarious Mohammed works of satire! Below is just a small sampling:

Update: Just for a little perspective when it comes to offensive cartoons, here is a look at the hypocrisy of the Muslim world (courtesy of Filibuster Cartoons):

Evo Morales Not Only Dresses Like an Idiot, He Is An Idiot

Univision anchorman Jorge Ramos recently interviewed new Bolivian president Evo Morales. Actually I should say that Ramos attempted to interview Morales, because it didn't turn out like Ramos must have expected (as one can see by his facial expressions) and it didn't last very long. If you speak Spanish you can watch a video of the entire but short interview over at Barcepundit. If not, here is a translated transcript of the interview supplied by Fausta’s Blog:

Jorge Ramos (JR): What many fear is that you might imitate Chávez's authoritarianism or Castro's dictatorship. You've said that you admire Castro.
Evo Morales (EM): I ask for respect. They have a democracy [in Cuba] . . .
JR: (startled)
EM: . . . I've seen . . .
JR: Excuse me, you're telling me there's democracy in Cuba?
EM: Well, yes, if Fidel Castro's there, it's for the revolution.
JR: It's a very simple question: to you, is Fidel Castro a dictator or not?
EM: No, to me, he's a democratic man, who defends life, who thinks about the human being. If you think he's a dictator that's your problem, it's not my problem.
JR: You came to power through the power of vote, and you don't ask for democracy for Cubans?
EM: I demand much respect. Don't call me a hypocrite.
JR: I ask you, is that hypocritical?
EM: The hypocrisy surely comes from your questions. I demand much respect. Ask questions . . .
JR: It's a question
EM: . . . ask questions on my country's situation . . . You're turning this into an international confrontation and I won't allow it.
JR: (narrating) As Morales requested, we talked about Bolivia but when we got to the delicate subject of drug trafficking he ended the interview.
EM: (standing up)
JR: We have six minutes, forty questions . . .
EM: That's not my fault.

Yes, Morales is a real tool. Is he so vacuous that he really believes that Cuba is democratic and that Castro is not a dictator? Or is he just a hypocrite trying to play some sly game of public brown-nosing for the benefit of his mentors Castro and Hugo Chávez? Personally I think he’s nothing more than a classless idiot with a bad haircut and a penchant for wearing an Alpaca sweater that looks like he picked it up in a Salvation Army bin.

Freedom of Speech and Death

Last September the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten (Jutland's Post) commissioned some drawings of the prophet Mohammed for an article on self-censorship and freedom of speech because writer Kare Bluitgen was not able to find an artist willing to illustrate his children's book about Mohammed. Given what has been happening in recent years in many European countries in relations with Muslims, artists were afraid of being attacked by Islamists. Considering what happened to Dutch film director Theo van Gogh and the threats to people such as Ayaan Hirsi Ali in the Netherlands there is no doubt the fear is justified. Below are the 12 drawings that Jyllands-Posten received and published:

At the time the cartoons were published some folks in the Danish Muslim community were offended (considering the tenants of Islam, rightly so). But Denmark, unlike most if not all of the Muslim world, has a concept known as freedom of speech. So while Muslims and their fellow travelers from the religion of multiculturalism are clamoring for apologies, retractions, censorship and retribution, some other newspapers in Europe have begun publishing the cartoons in solidarity with the press freedoms that the west holds dear. Of course this has just enflamed the masses of the "Religion of Peace" even more and we can now see in all of it's virtues of tolerance and peace the true face of Islam:

The following are just a few of the many bloggers who have covered this issue:
