There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back."

As it turns out, Mr. Peabody is a neo-con.

Many of you, whether you admit it or not, have probably been wondering how Andrew Schlafly, king loser of Conservapedia, is dealing with the election of Barack Obama. Indeed, thus far the transition seems to have been a little traumatic for the little tyke and I doubt that things are going to improve any. Still, even I hadn't anticipated how hard Schlafly would take things.

Those who follow the den of madness the way I do realize that most of the day yesterday Conservapedia was down, as in offline. Not responding to inquiries. There was an almost palpable sense of relief stemming from the legions dozens of home schoolers who could go a day without being hosed down with the raw sewage of Schlaflyan "learning." Yet, the reason for Conservapedia's withdrawal was not apparent from the apologetic message on the site:

"Maintenance," eh? What could that possibly mean? Well, as it happens, Conservapedia came back online last night. Only there have been some... changes. Particularly, you should note that today is Tuesday, the 27th of January. Yet, when one examined the "recent changes" page, things looked a bit... off:

Indeed, it would appear that as of the 26th of January, the most recent change was made... on the 19th of January? Really? A week of editing has just vanished? Not only that, but this morning, things seem to be trending further in that direction:

Yes, you read that right; the last change was made... on the 28th of November 2008?! Folks, there is only one possible conclusion: Andrew Schlafly is attempting to go back in time to when Barack Obama was not president and conservatives* had not been utterly repudiated by the masses. My best guess at this point is that he'll keep going until Reagan is in office. It's anyone's guess how he managed this feat but sources place Schlafly in the company of an anthropomorphic talking dog just prior to Conservapedia's departure:

So what will he do once he reaches this promised land? Well, my best guess is that he's going to go all terminator on Barack Obama, who was all of six when Reagan started his presidency. I suspect a six year old Barack is about a match for an adult Andrew Schlafly. I would say we should send our own agent back in time to save Barack Obama- I imagine Sarah Silverman would have more than enough fighting skills to kick Schlafly's ass- but, really, I think that would be overkill.

I mean, hell, Schlafly's failed at everything else he's ever attempted. Why start worrying now?

* Why is it that when I do a google image search for "Conservative," this pops up?

I KNOW that you used the age of 6 as hyperbole, but it was driving me crazy. Obama was actually 20 when Reagan took office.

However, the age notwithstanding, I LOVE your photoshopping!!!

Did you see the hitlist of Democratic senators from states with Republican governors that Conservapedia so helpfully put together?

I did see it, actually. Mysteriously, while Conservapedia seems to have finally returned from the past, it evidently left that page behind in the Reagan era.
