Sadly, the August 2, 2010 issue of the Carnival of Rants didn't make it to publication on time. Sorry. Blame my new job. So many balls up in the air, I suppose one or two had to drop eventually. But, better late than never, I suppose. Hope you'll agree.

Head on over to Womanist Musings where "Is Sarah Palin REALLY A Feminist?" asks the burning question: is Sarah Palin true to feminist causes or just a wolf in sheep's clothing?

Hate those inconsiderate drivers? Conditional Cognition presents "Turn Signal Tactics," saying, "Here's a silly/funny/witty rant about inconsiderate drivers."

Sad, achy-breaky heart snuffles at Cherry·Vomit | My Life In Transition. If you're into that kind of stuff, have a go at "Isn’t Supposed To Break Your Heart." Not quite a rant, but it will do for this issue.

I can't make heads or tails of this story (because it's partially written in a foreign language), but the pictures are pretty damn funny. Mohit Salgaonkar presents "Do mastaane chale zindagi banane..." with this headline grabber: "Read the story of two Indian software professionals working on the toughest project of their lives, that too in USA! A story with a difference, narrated with the help of stills from a Bollywood movie!" Okay, Mohit, we get the idea.

Jiles O'Neal is ready to take the law into his own hands in "Cops Just Sitting," posted at No Complaint Too Small. This blog posts, like, a rant a day. Maybe it should be the next host of this Carnival.

Mike doesn't give a rat's a** about Mongolia and is shouting it from the rooftops. "I'm an Ugly American. . . and Proud of It!!" goes to town on websites that bash Americans.

That concludes this issue of The Carnival of Rants. If you want to submit to our September issue, check out the link below.
