Corruption Attracts

Colorado Republican Rep. Marilyn Musgrave (one of the 13 most corrupt politicians in America) and Shrub share a Kodak moment just after the ritual beheading of a homosexual.

Bush: Marilyn, baby...I love what you do to me. Oh, that's not your ear.
Musgrave: Oh George, George, George. You're getting me wet.

Death Threats for Voting

Typical. This news item from Channel 3000, shows just how dangerous neo cons and wing nuts are. Because Democratic Rep. John Steinbrink voted to sustain Gov. Jim Doyle's veto of the conceal carry bill, two wing nuts decided to call his home and threaten him.

These bastards have no regard for civil rights. These bastards have no balls...they call anonymously. They can laugh all they want about the perceived antics of Cindy Sheehan, or about Michael Moore, but these people are simply exercising their right as Americans to protest. The right wing nut jobs, on the other hand, cannot tolerate differences of opinion. These idiots are egged on by:

Charlie Yikes: He refuses to allow anyone with an opposing view on his show amd continues to show his racist colors by fanning the flames with incendiary pieces like the School Voucher ad. It wasn't too long ago that he was fueling the fears of white suburbanites regarding Northridge. Additionally, Mr. Defense of Marriage is on his third now.

Ann Coulter: Despite the denials of conservative bloggers, she IS representative of the conservative movement. She just isn't afraid to speak it's beliefs in public. But it's okay at home by the well-stocked...liquor...cabinet.

Bill O'Reilly: has there ever been a blowhard like this fool? He makes Goebbels look like a saint.

Jessica McBucher: This trite little trollop comes from the Yikes mold. Spew the rhetoric, but don't allow anyone to comment. Can you say Pravda?

Pigs all. And yet, I would not deny them the right to mouth off. Ain't the Constitution grand? Problem is, they would do away with it if they could.


While I don't have the same view of Venezualan President Hugo Chavez, as Pat Robertson and the rest of the wing nut world does, I have to ask (and agree with Greg Saunders at This Modern World)...Why did you have your picture taken with him, Cindy Sheehan? It was not the most politically astute move.

You were doing great up until that moment. Please use your head and get back to what you do best...proving that Shrub and the rest of the chichen hawks do not give a damn about our servicemen or's all about the oil and gaining more power.

Being Red Is Taxing

Belle at Leaning Blue got excited about doing her own taxes for the first time. All the wingnuts can say is...ya know you allowed the government to use your money interest free, and what is it with liberals they can't hold a single job.

By the way, I'm sure every conservative remembers that first time he/she was indicted for fraud.

Way to go, Belle, and stay blue. You're at risk of losing your soul if you go the other way.

Those Crazy Wingnuts

Conservative bloggers hanging around for the beginning of Carnival of the Badger.

Keep It Simple

Not feeling well...yesterday and today. Not much in the mood for posting. My mom sent this over. I saw it earlier, at the Doonesbury site, but it is funny.

WOMAN IN AUDIENCE: "I don't really understand. How is the new plan going to fix the problem?"

PRESIDENT BUSH: "Because the...all which is on the table begins to address the big cost drivers. For example, how benefits are calculated, for example, is on the table. Whether or not benefits rise based upon wage increases or price increases. There's a series of parts of the formula that are being considered. And when you couple that, those different cost drivers, affecting those...changing those with personal accounts, the idea is to get what has been promised more likely to be...or closer delivered to that has been promised. Does that make any sense to you? It's kind of muddled. Look, there's a series of things that cause, for example, benefits are calculated based upon the increase of wages, as opposed to the increase of prices. Some have suggested that we calculate...the benefits will rise based upon inflation, supposed to wage increases. There is a reform that would help solve the red if that were put into effect. In other words, how fast benefits grow, how fast the promised benefits grow, if those...if that growth is affected, it will help on the red."

First there was Reagan. Then there was Quayle. Now Bush II. Is this a genetic defect in conservatives...or just a remake of Dumb, Dumber and Dumberer?

Dem Bible Thumpers Is Scary

This is why I fear for our country. I work part-time at a service station. The owner is a nice enough guy...has worked hard. But some of his ideas (and things I've heard him say) are juuuust a liitle foreign to me.

The world was created 6,000 years ago.
There is no life out in the universe, everything is here.
What have we gotten from all our travels in outer space, just some moon rocks. There's nothing out there for us. When we run out of oil and such, that will be the end of times.
Blacks would complain if you didn't use a new rope when lynching.
Damn Arabs own all the stations and run them into the ground. Should send them all back.
I read the Bible every night and go to church every Sunday, you betcha.

Oh, and he voted for Bush, because he's a god-fearing man.

This guy is likely representative of a huge chunk of Shrub's electorate. Think about it.

Learn a Second Language, Listen to the Prez

This from The Borowitz Report...

President Hopes to Reach Broader Audience, Aides Say

For the first time since he was elected President of the United States, George W. Bush's State of the Union address tonight will be simulcast in English, the White House confirmed. With the president's approval ratings sagging, the decision to simulcast the speech in English was widely seen as an attempt by the president to make an appeal to a broader audience. "The majority of people in this country are English speaking, and quite frankly, we can't afford to ignore them any longer," one senior aide said. "Hopefully, by doing the English simulcast, we'll be reaching out to a lot of those folks." Once the decision was made earlier in the month to launch the historic first English simulcast of a speech by President Bush, then began the hard work of translating the text of the address from Mr. Bush's language into English. Davis Logsdon, a professor of linguistics at the University of Minnesota, was one of several scholars approached to do the translation who ultimately quit in frustration. "The problem is that the language the president speaks, by most measures, is not a language at all," Professor Logsdon said. Still, the White House remains guardedly optimistic about tonight's simulcast, and aides said that if all goes as planned they might soon offer English simulcasts of press briefings by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Elsewhere, former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein stormed out of his courtroom today, got a good look at what was going on in the streets of Baghdad, and quickly hurried back in.

Get Jimmy Carter to Supervise the Vote

I really don't care if Mark Riordan is replaced at 620 WTMJ. However, Belle at Leaning Blue provides a list of characteristics for voting purposes along with pics of the current members of the lineup.

James at Wigderson Library & Pub makes the excellent observation that it's radio, who cares what anyone looks like.

I must say, that after looking at the guys, my only comment is...there's a real hair problem at WTMJ. I mean, come on. Charlie Yikes looks like his is greased on. Jeff Wagner's looks like...well, nobody really looks that hokey, do they? Jonathan Green...look out for Ragnar Mentaire's flys.

I wish I had more.

Disinformation Part Two

Read comment under first posting titled Disinformation. One comment before continuing...James claims on his blog that I took his remarks out of context. It's hard to understand how that could have happened. His only remark was restricted to one sentence...the rest was a recap of the part he cherry picked from the article. I didn't know you could take one sentence out of context. Now if James had continued in his original piece with the information he provided in his comment, AND I had replied as I did, then he would have had a good argument.

But, still, this is why I like James. He's not afraid to weigh in, understands that amongst the serious issues one can still entertain.

Anyway, everything in his comment I essentially agree with, except that "trickle down" just don't work, James. If it did, then why has nothing changed for the better? And, I continue to say that my post was not inaccurate. He did cherry pick facts in an attempt to be sarcastic. Sarcasm is very difficult to write. Only the best writers can master it and I am by no means even close to doing so. James, if the sarcasm in something you write is only visible to you, then it wasn't done well.
