This month at Popehat:
Patrick congratulated the government on learning how to draft child soldiers into the Great War on Drugs;
David warned that if your Italian leader wastes money for more than four hours, you should consult a doctor;
The gang displayed a great deal of concern about TSA junk-touching, discussing the how the new scan-or-grope policies fell into the context of a history of TSA dimwittery, how hipsters can crash planes, how New Jersey is an unlikely hero, how the TSA, presented with an opportunity to be less stupid, doubled down instead. Meanwhile, Ken offered a thought experiment on genitals and Charles offered a sheepish dissent.
Speaking of overt genitals, and of aliens (oh, we're always speaking of aliens), Patrick and Ken had a look into the ways The Nation and its "journalist" Mark Ames resemble the X-Files and Mulder, only considerably less entertaining.
Meanwhile, Patrick revealed that it's not just on Lamebook that people notify family of deaths through status updates.
Patrick suggested that those credit repair agencies that advertise on late-night TV might be more reliable than your government.
Ken had a run-in with an asshole about adoption and got nauseatingly emo about it, to the scorn of nearly all.
Ken explained why Jesus is not the reason you got up before dawn on Black Friday;
Patrick offered a modest proposal to deal with politicians who break their oath to uphold the Constitution;
Ken discussed the freakish entitlement of Cooks Source editor Judith Griggs.
Finally, in anticipation of Thanksgiving, Patrick explained why he is thankful to be American rather than Canadian.
