Drudgetaposition With Obama’s New Flag

September 20th, 2012 1 comment

Spew readers, as you know, The Drudge Report engages in something called “Drudgetaposition,” where they cleverly arrange images to send subtle messages to its readers.   Today is one of those days and it’s a doozy.  The first image  is a screen-cap from today’s edition with the stories in question circled.  The first story  is illustrated with a picture of the bloody handprints at the Libyan embassy where four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, were murdered.  To the right of that story is an image of  a new Obama flag for sale called “Our Stripes.”  

The second image  is a less-subtle juxtaposition of the two images in question, which our dear Fester Boyle has so kindly arranged which shows a striking comparison of the two images.  “Our Stripes” indeed.

Usually, when I see a ”mouse,” I think “trap,” but this video is really cute.  A little, bitty dormouse sleeps in a zookeeper’s hand.

Don’t worry, he’s okay! He’s just sleeping.

Dormice hibernate in the winter in nests that they make hidden away on the ground. In Britain the dormouse may spend up to 1/3 of its life in hibernation. Dormice usually enter hibernation at the time of the first frost, when nearly all food is gone. Dormice rely upon fat reserves gathered in the summer and autumn, and during hibernation they loose about a quarter of their body weight.

Surrey Wildlife Trust Mammal Project Officer, Dave Williams, took this lovely footage of a dormouse in torpor.

Huffpo Super User Defends The Silencing Of Congressman John Lewis And “His Kind”

October 13th, 2011 No comments



Congressman John Lewis arrived at the Occupy Atlanta protest with the intention of addressing the protesters.  But the protesters had other ideas and after a weird group “discussion”,  prevented the Congressman and Civil Rights leader from speaking.  The Spew’s own Fester Boyle wrote about this earlier today, here.

In response to that event, this was posted on the Huffington Post  by a reader in the comments section, and clearly illustrates left leaning thinking.



Where does one even begin?
