    President Obama clarified his accusation that DNI James Clapper was the cause of the intelligence failure about ISIL. Obama claimed that, in the short term, Clapper was at fault for general incompetence but that Congress was ultimately responsible because they confirmed him for the position. Clapper could not have performed his job with criminal negligence had he not been confirmed for the job by Congress. Obama stated that Congress has a history of confirming total incompetents after which he has had to work with them in his administration. Who can forget "Turbo Tax Timmy", or Hillary "Benghazi" Clinton, or "Stuck...

    Today, the owner of the Washington Redskins, Dan Snyder, announced that the team has agreed unanimously to change their name, after receiving so much national controversy. This, from Mr. Snyder: "Today, we made the decision to agree to change the name of our team. Instead of "Washington Redskins", we will now be legally known as "REDSKINS".

    The nominee to replace Eric Holder as the US Attorney General was announced today by the White House. Travis County, Texas District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg was named. Although not a national figure or Federal Deputy Attorney General, Rosemary Lehmberg garnered national notoriety by engineering the indictment of Gov. Rick Perry. Valarie Jarrett, special adviser to the president, worked with an ABA search committee to find a replacement for Holder. The committee exhausted several lists of recently disciplined and disbarred lawyers seeking a lawyer with similar professional ethics and standards as Holder without success. Turning to other available pools of possible...

    Baton Rouge police arrested 14 people Tuesday (Sept. 23) following an early morning prostitution sting. The sting, according to a press release from the Baton Rouge Police Department, was part of the department's effort to crack down in areas of high crime in the city. Detectives targeted street level prostitution, which resulted in the arrests, seizure of what they suspect was crack cocaine and the recovery of a missing person.

    At this point, we've seen just about every iteration of Disney princesses recontextualized by creative fans. The well may have run dry, but this exhaustion speaks to how eager a global audience is for animated females who break the traditional Disney mold. In the meantime, one writer has started conjuring some new princesses who break that mold so comprehensively they've become more likely characters for violent indie thrillers than family-oriented studio fare. Which is kind of a shame. Former DreamWorks effects animator and fledgling artist Jason Porath recently created Rejected Princesses, a website that features detailed, often hilarious stories and...

    The National Geographic Magazine, a publication heretofore not noted for satirical excellence, has published an article that easily could have appeared in The Onion. In fact, it begins by quoting that satirical publication as an authority. In Colorful World of Birding Has Conspicuous Lack of People of Color , author Martha Hamilton engages in hand-wringing and navel-gazing (yes, they can be done simultaneously, and for all I know, this might be good exercise) over the relative lack of “people of color” (as opposed to the colorless majority) out looking for exotic avian life.

    The College Football Czar: Week 5 Week four in review: None of the presumptive national contenders played very well last week, although LSU was the only one to be upset. Top-ranked Florida State showed that its problems run a lot deeper than the QB position, while Oregon was exposed for a lack of depth on its OL. Alabama displayed lots of power but no discipline, Oklahoma couldn’t get going until halftime, and Auburn would have lost if not for a series of unforced K-State miscues. The College Football Czar is now waiting to see which overpaid studio show host will...

Daryle Guillot, 37, who entered the plea Tuesday during his arraignment, was back in a 24th Judicial District courtroom on Thursday, when attorneys and a judge discussed the case privately. Guillot, whose last address was 516 Marigny St., in the Faubourg Marigny, is accused of assaulting the woman on Nov. 12. She just had her hair cut at a business in the 200 block of Veterans Memorial Boulevard, near the 17th Street Canal, according to...

Both studies revealed similar patterns of relations between trolling and the Dark Tetrad of personality: trolling correlated positively with sadism, psychopathy, and Machiavellianism, using both enjoyment ratings and identity scores. Of all personality measures, sadism showed the most robust associations with trolling and, importantly, the relationship was specific to trolling behavior.

CNN announced it was canceling the show two months later, as network president Jon Klein told the New York Times "I agree wholeheartedly with Jon Stewart's overall premise."

    WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KFDX) — We’ve heard about homeowners in Texas using guns to defend their property from intruders, but we don’t typically hear about people using medieval castle-like weapons to defend their home. That was the case in Wichita Falls this week, where police arrested an accused crook after a homeowner stabbed him with a spear. According to KFDX-TV, it all started late Tuesday night when Wichita Falls police tried to pull over Thomas McGowan because the car he was driving had been reported stolen. McGowan took off and led police on a chase. Several minutes later, authorities received...

He climbs up on the seat, squats with one foot on each side and dangles his junk down so he hits...

While most people in Mexico were celebrating Diez y Seis de Septiembre, Miley Cyrus was twerking on stage in Monterrey with dancers whipping and rubbing Mexican flags on her butt. To some of the pop stars' fans, it was just "Miley being Miley," but to Mexican officials in Nuevo Leon, it could be a violation of the country's constitution, which protects "national emblems, the flag and the national anthem."

But the world's biggest social network is not budging from its rules. In recent weeks, Facebook has been deleting the profiles of self-described drag queens and other performers who use stage names because they did not comply with the social networking site's requirement that users go by their "real names" on the site. On Wednesday, Facebook declined to change its policy after meeting with drag queens and a member of the...
