Let’s Stop Apologizing for Music Torture at Gitmo

By Darren Garnick | Related entries in Guantanamo Bay, Kitchen Sink, Music, National Security, News, Torture

So, a pretentious group of musicians is upset that their music is being used to torment America’s most dangerous enemies? And now they want the U.S. government to release an official song list? I can’t imagine that such a document actually exists. Are we supposed to believe that CIA and Pentagon interrogators around the world […]

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Kitchen Sink, Obama, Video

This is kind of weird. I mean, the resemblance is pretty uncanny as a caricature. Looks as if a political cartoonist drew it. And yes, I realize that I just opened myself up to a torrent of “messiah” comments, but I’m ready for it. Tweet

Listen, the guy is one of the best actors of his generation. You don’t think he’s playing a part here? For further evidence that Phoenix is just having fun, […]

Whichever one of the Ten Commandments tells us not to bow down to idols, that’s the one we’ve been breaking with all the Abraham Lincoln worship lately. There’s no way he was even half as popular amongst Northerners back in the 1860s (I still bump into Civil War kooks down South who HATE Lincoln more […]

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Comedy, Kitchen Sink

A writer from The Onion is selling one on eBay. No, seriously… My name is John Harris, and I am a staff writer at The Onion, America’s Finest News Source. I am selling a joke that I can’t find a contextual home for. To be fair, it’s less of a joke and more of a […]

Who Weeps for Detroit? No One.

By Dennis Sanders | Related entries in General Politics, Kitchen Sink

Let’s face it: people don’t like the American auto industry. Scratch that: people hate the American auto industry. There are a lot of reasons to hate it: unionized workers who make crazy money that is out of sync with reality, execs who seem to have a tin ear to what Americans really want, cars that […]
