Is it just me, or does the farce known as the Republican ticket to the White House get funnier and funnier each day? My favorite white people, the folks over at Gawker, reported a few days ago that Sarah Palin’s personal email address had been hax0r3d. It looks like the work of Anonymous, a group of “fun-loving Internet trouble-makers based loosely around the message board 4Chan.” Before I go on, let me state that I truly believe that Anonymous and the guys at 4Chan are awesome. They’ve provided us with many of the internet’s most hilarious and memorable memes.
So, anyhoo, it seems the sexy Tina Fey-a-like may be in a bit of hot water for using her one of her personal, unarchived emails — namely, firstname.lastname@example.org — instead of her official government account to conduct state business. Yeah, nothing shady about that. While government officials are attempting to reclaim files and communications sent through that Yahoo account, Anonymous may have been the ones to access another of Sarah’s email accounts: email@example.com. ZOMG!
Oh, you want to read the emails, you say? Maybe see some never before seen family photos? Well, the jump is just a click away.

All six are works that Bansky just put up in New Orleans, to commemorate the third anniversary of Hurricane Katrina on August 29. Some of the pieces relate directly the hurricane and its disastrous aftermath; others are targeted at the legacy of Fred Radtke, an infamous N.O. anti-graffiti crusader known as the “Gray Ghost” for his practice of painting over graffiti in gray paint — regardless of the color of the underlying wall.
Check them out after the jump.
"The New Yorker" asks, "Why so serious?"
Really, the folks at The New Yorker thought this was funny? Cancel my subscription, please.
The latest cover of this supposedly prestigious magazine has been pretty much widely acknowledged as tasteless and offensive, though New Yorker editor David Remnick would have you believe that it’s simply “satire.” His attempts to explain after the jump. Continue reading
