A quick two minute drill and...

All Kerry has to do is lay down a quick no huddle two minute drill involving 370-some-odd-tons of explosives, 1100+ US dead, 100k+ Iraqi dead, and the lack of answers Bushco can provide. The ads are on TV here now, and Bush's doesn't show anything other than his grasping a the air as his administration of evil goes down.

Now.. I'm not really one to rant (well, yea I actually am. right Tom). But for the love all that is right and not RIGHT.. Why can't a conservative give me any real answers? Were they trained to avoid, duck, dodge and in general weasel away from a true answer? Watching the interview with the Barbie Doll of the conservative construct (Ann Coulter) on Real Time with Bill Maher made me want to gag. The blonde bimbo not only wouldn't admit to Bush's ineptness on 9/11.. But she also claimed that any president would have reacted the same. What?! Damn... When asked if she thought Bush had an easier route to the White House via his family, money, and connections. She stares blankly for a moment, a very dazed look (much like that of Bush when he hears bad news) look on her face, and responds with John Kerry did that. What?! She claims John Kerry funded his campaign with Teresa's money. What?! Last I checked John Kerry worked his way up to office prior to marrying her.

But Annie saying the truth would be too close to right (not RIGHT). It's obvious we can't pry a real answer from any conservative.. Maybe if we throw enough money at them they'll tell us the truth. And if you think the liberals are willing to do that.. I have a bridge I'd like to sell you.

I say once more unto the huddled masses.. damn.

Hissyfit: Psych 101

Interesting perspective on the whole Jon Stewart-Crossfire hoo-hah and what the greater implications are of it.

2004's Scariest Halloween Costumes

Well, I meant to post this last Friday, but even though this really isn't that relevant any longer, it's still worth a view if your sensibilities aren't easily offended (some of these are pretty borderline).

Sweet Jesus on a Pogo Stick!

I don't mean to obsess on James Wolcott's blog so much, but damn, the man knows how to turn a phrase and send up red flags at the same time. This entry, Captain Queeg Plays with His Marbles, just had me rolling on the floor. If you think Roger L. Simon is scary, you should see the nut jobs posting comments to his original post.

CBS/NY Times Florida Poll--Where Is It?

This entry at Atrios' blog has the conspiracy theorists out in full force. I tend to agree that something fishy is going on? I mean, come on, the media would never hide any news like this, would they. /sarcasm

While he's got the War Drums...

I personally prefered the more direct and enraged song by Eminem, "Mosh". Found here.

Either way, both shoot Bushy-boy the finger. Nice animation in both.

Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums

Scathing political commentary from A Perfect Circle. I must have this CD!

Can't We All Just Get Along?

I have such a hard time understanding why people feel so threatened about other people exercising their right to do what they want to do. Religious zealots should stop right now--HA! as if a religious zealot would be reading this blog in the first place. This excellent article on Salon tells it all*.

*If you don't have a subscription to Salon.com, just click the free one-day pass link and sit through the ad--it is pretty painless for what you get, which is access to excellent journal writing online, which sadly isn't as readily available as it should be.


contrapositive has an interesting blow-by-blow preview of what to be looking for election night. Good stuff and very simple.

James Wolcott: Idiots Convention

Mr. Wolcott is the man. Along with MSNBC's Hardball, CNN is doing their best to disprove the so-called liberal-biased media. It's just so damn frustrating to see "news" reports distorting the facts. Hundreds indeed.

A Friend's Blog

Roy has a pretty funny blog. He hasn't gone political yet, unlike me, who had sworn off politics on the blog (oops).

Visualize Winning

If you're a Dem, and life is getting you down, or better yet, the ridiculous polls like the latest Gallup poll are getting you down, just go here and calm down (while getting excited).

CNN At it Again!

Tsk, tsk. So, how's that argument about the so-called "liberal-biased" media go again? I swear, CNN is running to the right as fast as they can to try to save their lives from the green-eyed monster that is FOX News.

Polling Fun on dKOS

This entertaining blog has some interesting reference material up in regard to polls and how they relate to final outcomes in incumbent elections.

How Many?

Ok, so this has probably made its way around the internet a few times by now, but I still find it amusing.

How many Bush administration officials does it take to change a light bulb?

None. There’s nothing wrong with that light bulb. There is no need to change anything. We made the right decision and nothing has happened to change our minds. People who criticize this light bulb now, just because it doesn’t work anymore, supported us when we first screwed it in, and when these flip-floppers insist on saying that it is burned out, they are merely giving aid and encouragement to the Forces of Darkness.

Jon Stewart on Crossfire

This is insane! Tucker Carlson is such an idiot! How many diamonds could his ass produce?!? I applaud Jon for taking a stand and holding these guys to the fire.

Militant Cleric Considers Entry Into Iraqi Politics

The New York Times > International > Middle East > Militant Cleric Considers Entry Into Iraqi Politics (registration required)

Hey, this is what the Bush administration wanted, right? I mean, come on, what's better than an Islamic militant getting involved with the democratic process? At least he's trying, even if the outcome isn't exactly what we had in mind.

This Cracks Me Up

I love hijinks, especially when they disrupt Republican spin doctors.

CNN Undecided Voter

Karl Rove would love this guy.

Debate Polling

American Research is doing some interesting polling with three different sets of panels who watched the debates. It will be enlightening to see the final results.


..this about says it all for me.
