It's the new face of Al Qaeda. Why does Britney no longer like 'Murka?...
How positively Neil Postman all of this has become.

Rough Sledding

We got slammed overnight! Here's a picture out the front window of the house.

I'm working from home today. Traffic is a nightmare.

What will we tell the children?

I dunno, it sure seems to me that we're spreading something other than democracy over in Iraq.

This story certainly smacks of that particular brand of abuse and neglect that US citizens have become so frightenly inured of hearing about regarding their own children.

Tom Tomorrow tells Truth!!

Yes, but will it float

I really have nothing to say about Anna Nicole Smith that jurassicpork doesn't capture quite effectively.

She's a true metaphor for 'Murka.

New Holiday

Well it appears that I missed yesterday's newly coined holiday of Jonah Goldberg Day.

This fat fuck, who as you may or may not know is the demon seed of one Lucienne Goldberg, (yes...her), made a bet with Juan Cole two years ago and got the WPITW treatment from good ol' Keith last night.

The Rude One

No, not that guy.

This sumabitch

Gilliard gets 'er done.

Come out, come out, wherever you are...

Can somebody please explain why these evangelical fuckwits think that homosexuality is something to be cured like the flu? I tell ya, once Teddy boy truly recalls the acrid taste of his wife's devout Christian snatch, he'll be running back to his former role as the meth fueled bottom faster than you can say Wally Cox.
Yikes, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Over the rainbow

Seriously, Richard Simmons has done a good deal to make the straight community as comfortable as anyone with the acceptance of gay society.

The bridge for him and several of his predecessors is, of course, humor.

With that, I give you this wildly hilarious excerpt from a 2004 edition of Who's Line is it Anyway

The Onion is funny

Meth Addicts Demand Government Address Nation's Growing Spider Menace
January 30, 2007

WASHINGTON, DC—Following the tragic falling death of 32-year-old methamphetamine addict Phillip Diggs, who was reportedly attacked by spiders while scaling a large construction crane near Palo Alto, CA, thousands of outraged and confused meth addicts marched frenetically on Washington as part of a week of activities urging the federal government to address the nation's growing spider epidemic.

Harlowe pleads with senators to ask the King of America to do something about "all the goddamned spiders." "Something needs to be done and it needs to be done soon—these spiders are everywhere," said Rich Harlowe, event organizer and founder of Tweakers' Rights NowNowNowNowNowNowNowNowNow!, in testimony before a Senate committee Tuesday.
"The government must address this problem before the situation gets out of hand and these poisonous, acid-shooting spiders develop the powers of mind control or—God forbid—flight."
"America cannot afford to ignore this any crisis any longer," Harlowe added.

The rally drew addicts from every part of the country, many traveling on foot through the night, trading sex with truck drivers for rides, or stealing their brothers-in-law's bicycles. At dozens of rambling public speeches, organizers decried the fact that it took the spider-related death of an innocent meth addict to raise awareness of the issue, while lauding the bravery of meth addicts, and methamphetamines themselves.

A 45,000-word proposal was drafted by members of TRN during a marathon, 72-hour meeting under the Roosevelt Bridge, and presented twice to the Senate Indian Affairs Committee. The document, which includes schematics for the development of a giant "spider bomb" the size of Rhode Island, concludes repeatedly that the problem would best be combated with large quantities of methamphetamines and steel wool.

The TRN proposal closely mirrored the plot of the 1990 horror film Arachnophobia.
"This very morning, I saw a small child completely covered in hairy, bloodsucking, screaming tarantulas while his parents stood by and did nothing," said protester Joe Lopez, pausing to spit out a black and decayed tooth. "I was appalled. I shouted horrible profanities and incantations at them, but they ignored me."

"I, I, I don't—this is just, just, just—I, I, I—guh, ah," he added.

TRN activists claimed that they called for federal assistance only as a last resort, after months of trying to contain the problem with diplomacy, force, cathode rays, and methamphetamines.
"These spiders are unstoppable," meth addict and self-described spider-hater Christine Mitchell said. "We've tried everything from scrubbing ourselves raw with bleach, to burning them off with lit cigarettes, to scrubbing ourselves raw with bleach. We've even tried burning them off with lit cigarettes. We're out of options."

Mitchell urged senators to form an anti-spider task force, but cautioned that the creatures' ability to appear and disappear at will would rule out a bleach-related "quick fix" solution to the infestation.

Several other unnamed addicts who wandered in and out of the hearings described their efforts to establish "an open dialogue" with the spiders, but said the arachnids responded by growing dramatically in size and speaking with the voices of John Goodman, Gene Hackman, and Rosie Perez, bringing the first round of negotiations to an abrupt end.

"We tried talking to them, we tried screaming at them, we tried bursting into uncontrollable crying fits in front of them, but nothing seemed to work," said one witness, who refused to divulge his name, age, or "who sent [him] here." "Even with human heads, they would not listen to reason."

Though most committee members had left the hearings before Harlowe's closing remarks at 3:30 a.m. Wednesday, some indicated a willingness to investigate the addicts' claims more closely.

"I believe it is our duty and responsibility to act before we lose even more Americans of voting age," said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D–CA), who noted that her home state had more meth addicts than any other in the country. "Pollsters tell us that one in five voters is, has been, or will be a meth addict at some point in their lifetimes. That's a voting bloc too big for us to ignore."

Ach du liebe Zeit!

This is plainly shocking on many levels, the least of which is that you'll never see an interview like this published in the 'Murkan media.

I need a drink.

Just a drive by posting

I'm swamped all day, so here is a quick link via jurassicpork to the Paul Krugman piece on Molly.

I scream... scream.

Others Yelp.

pretty cool site.

Fight tha power

Just in case you're seeking a way by which to get back at those dumb bastards that keep purposefully mis-pronouncing Democratic Party, here's an excellent solution.*

(Molly would've certainly approved).

*Hat-tip to Brian in Phoenix

Molly is gone

As you've probably heard by now, our friend Molly Ivins passed away yesterday after her third bout with breast cancer. She was a wonderful person that lifted all of us above our station.

I posted her final column the other day from the 11th. Her final paragraph reads thusly:

We are the people who run this country. We are the deciders. And every single day, every single one of us needs to step outside and take some action to help stop this war. Raise hell. Think of something to make the ridiculous look ridiculous. Make our troops know we're for them and trying to get them out of there. Hit the streets to protest Bush's proposed surge. If you can, go to the peace march in Washington on Jan. 27. We need people in the streets, banging pots and pans and demanding, "Stop it, now!" .

Take the time to be really sad about this folks. I certainly am. But remember what she wrote and how you personally can impact the world around you.

And also always remember her humor. Both she and Art Buchwald gone within weeks of one another. Brutal.

In closing my favorite Molly quote of all time, from 1992..."Many people did not care for Pat Buchanan's speech; it probably sounded better in the original German".
Rest in Peace dear lady.
