You might remember Mandy Steckelberg from the Laura Bush video I posted back in May of last year.
Just this morning, I got a little note from Mandy, thanking me for posting her video.
She digs my blog. *blush*
She also let me know that she’s got a new video out, and it made me laugh all the way through.
Her new video, not even remotely safe for most Medieval and/or Victorian era work places, is below the fold. (But if you’re surfing at work and concerned about that sort of thing… umm… what are you doing here????)

I’ve been thinking for some time that a friend of mine should start a blog. He’s got some interesting things to say, and a wicked and funny creative streak that I love.
How could you not love his YouTube entry in the April Skepchick contest?
Well, as I said in the title, it’s about damned time.
As soon as you’re finished dancing naked on your/your lover’s/your boss’/your neighbor’s/a perfect stranger’s/my desk (Kate, you have to move so I can write, huz!), go say hello to Rystefn at The Last Road, and try to pronounce his name correctly.

You may have seen this little logo beginning to find its way around the Blogosphere. The full story of how it came about can be found here, but the short version is this:
Bloggers who were interested in science and scientific research would use a linked graphic for an aggregating service called “Blogging on Peer Reviewed Research”, or BPR3. The service would pull together blog posts that used the label into one place, where one could browse around and see what some of the best science bloggers were saying about new research on all sorts of topics.
In yet another disingenuous attempt to give the Intelligent Design Creationism Hoax some veneer of scientific credibility, Discovery Institute lapdog and mealy mouthed mouthpiece Casey Luskin stuck the logo on one of his bullshit propaganda pieces, breaking pretty much every rule of BPR3 in addition to his usual utter lack of integrity. When someone noticed and he was busted of course, Casey did the responsible thing. He lied his ass off.
Anyway, you can read the whole sordid affair at the links above if you really want to see the blatant dishonesty that is part and parcel of the whole (bowel) movement that is The Intelligent Design Creationism Hoax of Propaganda (IDCraHP).
In a moment of breathtaking brilliance, Mister DNA, creator of CBEBs, came up with the perfect answer for Liars Like Luskin. Blogging on Pseudo-Scientific Douche-Bags (or the light version, Blogging on Pseudo-Science). If you blog at all about Pseudo-Science of any stripe, I would encourage you to look into joining the chorus there. It’s spreading like wildfire, and even some of the biggest science bloggers and ScienceBloggers are using it already.
(As a note of historical pride, allow me to point out that one of my posts was the very first one to be successfully aggregated by the service automatically.)
Before the project goes any further, I want to be sure that Kent Hovind, creationist, liar, convicted felon, and Pseudo-Scientific Douche-Bag with a fake “Dr.” degree from a fake “University”, is immortalized in the archives at BPSDB.org.
You’re still a FuckTard, aren’t you Kent?

(A peek above our garters to Ed Brayton of Dispatches from the Culture Wars for this.)
It really was inevitable.

(UPDATE: Thanks to Dr. Phil Plait at BadAstronomy for helping to spread the word. Go show him some love.)
The Hovind Crime Family has managed to have the Rational Response Squad’s YouTube account suspended by filing at least ten false copyright infringement claims. (That’s a felony, in case you’re interested.)
The Rational Response Squad’s rational response comes in video form (another You’re A FuckTard music video entry at the end, watch all of it!). Please download the video and repost it wherever you can, and add it as a response to this video at this link.
I suppose that when your lies masquerading as Science are exposed by people educated in the relevant fields as a pile of crap, you don’t really have any other choice but to lie to censor your critics. It’s typical behavior from Creationist “scientists”, so I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised. For the record, “Dr.” Dino (as he styles himself) unshockingly has no credentials in either the scientific or education fields.
Once again, just cuz it’s so damned funny – Live and Acoustic, from EddyGoombah himself right below the fold!:
