How bad is it?

Pretty fucking bad.

Lunatics and Liars

Heh heh. More here.

Animal Farm Friday - Cat Fight

Or rather, kitten fight. And how to stop it.

Lets say the two kittens represent our current lame-o Congress (I know, it's not fair to the kittens). Then we say the third kitten (on camera near the end) represents how I feel about all of this.

Rove to be held in contempt

Okay, so he's not being frog-marched to justice, but he might be sooner rather than later.

MoveOn not a movement?

Another TPM nugget seriously worth a look!


Great rebuttal!

Republican's adopting my values? Sweet!

Maybe Petey thought that holding his fundraisers in Vegas wouldn't get out because, what happens in Vegas...

From TPM:

Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX),
who once bashed Janet Jackson and that Justin guy for their "liberal
values" as displayed in the wardrobe malfunction is now holding fundraisers at Las Vegas strip clubs.

Here's one of the employees at the establishment crawling on all fours wearing a belt and a leather bra. Not that there's anything wrong with that ...

Nothing wrong in my book with a hot chick in leather gear crawling on all fours. What's IS wrong in my book is this shameless hypocrisy these fucking Republiscums exude as they wrap themselves in the flag, stand on the breaking backs of our soldiers, and lie right out of their putrid faces about their devotion to God and family, and that queers and perverts and people with "liberal" values are corrupting this country.

Pete must really be confusing San Francisco values with Vegas values. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Fournier the Fraud and the "Associated" Press

I've railed before about the partisan hack Ron Fournier who is now heading up editorial for the Associated Press, and from the looks of things, he gives new meaning to the word associated.

In October 2006, the McCain team approached Fournier about joining the fledgling operation, according to a source with knowledge of the talks. In the months that followed, said a source, Fournier spoke about the job possibility with members of McCain’s inner circle, including political aides Mark Salter, John Weaver and Rick Davis.

Salter, who remains a top McCain adviser, said in an e-mail to Politico that Fournier was considered for “a senior advisory role” in communications.

“He did us the courtesy of considering the offer before politely declining it,” Salter said.

Indeed. This would certainly explain why they've decided to more or less race Fox News to the bottom of the press gutter.

How little we've progressed

Interesting look back on ideas for harnessing natural, renewable energy.

Don't drown your phone

I could have used this stuff last week before I dropped my Crackberry into a glass of water.

What happened to 4:20?

Surely there must be some kind of respite for the infinite hour!

Karma can be a bitch, eh Bob?

Bob "Douchebag for Liberty" Novak has a brain tumor. Josh wishes him well, but I don't. I'm not one for believing in fate, but I do sort of believe in karma. Novak's is coming back in spades, it seems.

Gonzo is at the center of attention

Great interactive map from Slate:

Sunday Sketch - Maliki Kneecaps McCain

By now you must have heard that Maliki has endorsed Obama's 16 month plan for withdrawing US troops (*with caveats) from Iraq. That basically cuts McCain's campaign off at the knees. I don't see how he'll recover from this.
