Carnival of Snark – The Highly Annoyed Edition

by Venomous Kate

Welcome to the mid-March edition of the Carnival of Snark. This week it’s a light edition, which may once again signal a hiatus for the Carnival while I — and my fellow bloggers — recuperate interest in the dang thing. If you’ve got a blog and you just can’t bear the thought of going without your semi-regular Snarkfest, consider keeping the Carnival alive by submitting your entry for the next one ASAP!

Now that I’ve snarked about all of you, it’s time to get on with other folks’ snark:

And the rest of you apparently had nothing of interest to contribute.

The Carnival of Snark, No. 27

by Venomous Kate

After a brief hiatus due to illness, the Carnival of Snark has returned. This week’s entrants include none of the usual suspects, which means there are new blogs waiting for you to discover. And, yes, they snark. Oh my, how they snark!

Stupid Politicians

NK takes on a political perennial, Mayor Richard Daley, with America’s Possible Next President-By-Proxy Wins Re-election As Mayor Of Chicago at Cree Tees.

Adam rails on shoddy simplifications in Righteousness of the Devout at Sophistpundit.

Stupid Schools

Dana, a fellow homeschooling mother, tackles the dreaded S-word in If you want your child socialized…a public school satire at Principled Discovery.

Richard also writes about Public School at Shadowscope.

Will Chen wonders At What Price? Bounty From the Belly of the Big Box Beast at Wisebread.

Stupid People

Bill Losapio, who is apparently not a Limbaugh fan, warns Anyone Attempting to Pursuade Using Limbaugh Logic Will Be Removed From the Premises! at L. William Losapio.

Wenchypoo warns about the War on the War on the Middle Class at Wisdom From Wenchypoo’s Mental Wastebasket.

What discussion of stupid people would be complete without a mention of Maureen Dowd? This week, CapeTownDissentator presents Two Comedians, a Senator, and an Aging Institution at The Dissentators.

Stupid Laws

Dr. Ford Fox, who attended the ACLU vs. NSA federal appeals hearing in Cincinnati, reports that the Government’s lawyers have been reading too much Franz Kafka in Freedom from Government Surveillance at Futurologic Markup Language.

Other Stupidity

Brad, who surfs the internet from his office bathroom, warns us Don’t Make Friends at Work posted at Brad’s Bits (no pun intended).

According to Avant News, California Scientists are Mapping God’s Genome. Mmmm-kay.

Madeleine Begun Kane shares tips on Surmounting Marriage at Mad Kane’s Humor Blog.

Mark A. Rayner has some ideas about fixing the markets in Ask General Kang: Is it a correction? Please tell me it?s a correction! Should I sell? at The Skwib.

Carnival of Snark #26 – It’s about the stupid: politics!

by Venomous Kate

Welcome to the Politically Obvious edition of the Carnival of Snark, where it’s all about stupid politics.

Stupid Politics

Weighing in on the political right, we’ve got Madcap with The Liberal Party And The Two Minutes Hate.

Meanwhile, punching for the political left, we’ve got Madeleine Begun Kane discussing Bellicose Bush.

Rounding up everyone else’s riffs on the State of the Union, Divided We Stand United We Fall presents State of the Union – Comedy Tonight!.

As for the State of the Union itself, Rey Thomas says Bush State of the Union Address Gets “A” for Style, “C” for Substance. [Hmmm. Must be grading on a curve.]

Other Stupidity

From Wenchypoo we’ve got “Food politics,” with Food for the Grist Mill.

Food’s been on Craig Harper’s mind, too, after a recent trip to the grocery store opened his eyes to how we are Rewarding Our Children… with Obesity.

Then, too, there’s the politics of land use: Sean J. Vaughan dissects The Promised Land.

Linoge demonstrates that politics can go where no man has gone before in Jim’s dead, Doc.

That’s it for this week, folks. Submit your entry (one per author, please) to the Carnival of Snark using our submission form. Past posts can be found here in the Archives or on our blog carnival index page.

Carnival Of Snark #25

by Venomous Kate

Welcome to the 25th edition of the Carnival of Snark — an extravaganza of caustic, sarcastic and witty rants from all around the blogosphere! This week we’re snarking about politics, planes, plans, propaganda and people — just because we can.

Democracy means simply the bludgeoning of the people by the people for the people. – Oscar Wilde

J.C. Wilmore shares with us the leaked text of Cheney’s speech to the General Assembly at The Richmond Democrat.

Rey Thomas interprets what the President said, and what the President meant in The Thomas Political Report.

Divided We Stand United We Fall worries that our new Speaker of the House has been tempted by the One Ring. [But its ourssssss, precioussss!]

Many people would sooner die than think; In fact, they do so. – Betrand Russell

Danny Simkin discusses the Making of a martyr at Samson Blinded.

Madcap files one in the Department of Oxymorons under Islamic Justice at The Global Conservative.

Travel is only glamorous in retrospect. – Paul Theroux

Jennifer Miner, host of Suite 101’s Luxury & Resort Travel section, reports that the skies are safer now that TSA Bans Snow Globes on Planes… or are they?

While we’re on the subject of banned materials, Wisebread reminds us that the FBI once considered “It’s a Wonderful Life” as Communist propaganda, so imagine what your grandchildren will think of us banning liquids on airplanes.

Rob O. ponders the way safety measures only shuffle around risk, rather than reduce it, in Risky Business at 2Dolphins.

Slobokan has been thinking along the same lines — sort of — now that Microsoft has synched with Ford.

Maybe Microsoft and Ford can come up with a way to do something about all this global warming, which is currently prompting AJ Lynch to wonder Will Alligators Migrate to the Delaware River?

Thought: Why does man kill? He kills for food. And not only food: frequently there must be a beverage. – Woody Allen

Linda Freedman of Everyone Needs Therapy gives a few tips for dealing with those folks who tell you what you’re doing wrong with your sandwich — or with that bagel and cream cheese.

Zachary Wyatt of the Rising Jurist, has a real love-hate relationship with his local coffee house, of which he says Ernest Hemingway Would Not Hang Out Here.

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of Carnival of Snark using our handy-dandy Carnival Submission Form. Carnival entries are due Friday at midnight (CST) for next weekend’s Carnival. Until then, get snarking!
