All that's standing between Sarah and the Presidency

A gay best friend!

Should Sarah Choose Jeff, (Contestant number 1),

Or Dan, (Contestant number 2).

Oh, if any of our reader(s) are not reading Dan Savage, get yourself there, now, girlfriend!

A late contestant, Danielle, but one who makes some very good points!

"I can play hockey with your sons and I can date your daughter Bristol, and I won't even get her pregnant!"

"All of them, " "I have a vast variety of sources."

What newspapers does Sarah Palin read? She can't name a single one. Perhaps she's just exhausted from scanning the Alaskan skyline for signs of Putin. I suspect, however, that she is also aware of all internet traditions.

Truly, I'm speechless. This is just beyond parody. What will poor Tina Fey do?

Sarah Palin: Voters don't count.

Sarah Palin first goes out with a news crew, answers a question (at a pizza place!) and then has to have a do-over interview with "Daddy" McCain and Katie Couric. Hey, Katie, how dare you actually ask a question? What do you think your job is anyway? And you, random voter, asking a question? What a meanie. How dare you use words like "Waziristan" on poor poor Bible Spice. You're clearly an "in-tell-lechual" headed for h-e-double toothpicks.

Palin Holed Up in Arizona to Practice For Debate

Stranger than Fiction

WHITEHOUSE, Ohio - An Ohio farmer would like to invite you to get lost inside the head of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

A 16-acre corn maze near the town of Whitehouse has been carved in Palin's likeness, complete with her familiar updo hairstyle and eyeglasses.

And to think, I was expecting a miraculous apparition like a Jebus cornflake.

Thank you, can I have another?

The political debacle regarding the bailout and the financial crisis bring to mind that clever sage, Mencken.

Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard.

Housekeeping Tips Part 4

Actually I'm seeking household tips for getting rid of fruit flies. (Other than keeping a clean kitchen-----In all fairness though, the current infestation seems to have stemmed from an onion that expired while we were out of town for a couple of weeks.)

I felt wickedly clever when I tried to lure them to their doom with some vinegar and a piece of fruit left in an open microwave oven.(Should I patent this idea?)

I allowed them to gather for about an hour, and then slammed the door shut and started it up on high. I stopped when the plum slices were unrecognizable, sizzling masses. I opened the door, and at least one fruit fly zipped out!

I wonder what the next generation of them will be like now. HELP!

Republicans show their true colors by misrepresenting ours

I guess we haven't quite become that post-racial society when we see this kind of sleazy political ad.

Just for the record, here, to the left, is Perriello.

Below is how his political opponent portrayed him.

Ever seen a nursing mother?

Notice the, ah, bristols on Bristol. I nursed three babies, and recognize the symptoms. The uneven nature of the, ah, breastage, leads me to believe that one was emptied more thoroughly than the other on the last feeding, and that this is not just pre-baby horomones. Also notice how soft they look (not too closely, give the poor girl a bare minimum of privacy). Poor Bristol. They're sore, too, as I recall. Also note the belly--post baby look. While not normally a conspiracy theorist, this one dovetails perfectly with my views on the matter. "If it can be explained by stupidity, it's not conspiracy." Here, for the very first time in my life, stupidity lines up perfectly with conspiracy! Yee Haw!! (Except, of course, for my poor poor country.) Plus, look how much in love the two lovebirds look. Poor dears.

PS. Doesn't getting a tattoo (see inset) with the loved one's name guarantee a breakup in the near future?

What we need in a world leader; and my idea of God

No one is listening,my friend.

I mean really, who would you have face down Palin, Courtney, or Sarah. Honestly.

Warning for those of you with tender sensibilities, this is Courtney Love in all her full-throated, badly filmed, badly miked glory. But even the most curmudgeonly of you must enjoy watching her force a concert-goer to remove his pearl-jam t-shirt. "I'll hold it for you forever. It's good for you." Oh, the song is "Miss World" "I lie and lie and lie." I'd dedicate it to Bible Spice (aka Sarah Palin) but, she's not worth it.

Punk-rock Friday, Saturday edition

Grizzly Bear

Woke up depressed; contemplated, briefly, 3000 word personal essay, perhaps with a poetry section, bemoaning the state of the world, and relating it to my garden, the facebook habit i've gotten into of sending pixillated fish to people as a way to express connection, and the current banking crisis. Came to my senses.

Instead, my own personal calming technique--I bring you, Grizzly Bear; harmony deluxe. The song is called, as will be clear, once you dare listen, "Colorado," though why, I have no clue.

Moonage Daydream

I just watched the debates. When faced with one candidate who speaks clearly and intelligently on the issues, and one that kinda rambles on, oh, did you know McCain is against earmarks? Who will America pick? I'm kinda guessing the old white guy with the cheezy grin. Anyway, i'm now so freaked out about America's future (can you hear me.....) I need something beyond skinny brits in tight pants to cheer me up. Something with a good Weimar-era end-of-an-era vibe. La la la la la; we should be on by now.

David Bowie, "Time", Hammersmith Palace, 1973; A skinny brit in a cape, such (glimpses of) legs, cabaret, and a boa. Plus bonus Mick Ronson guitar and knee sock action! Did you know Mick was Mormon? It's like we're related or something.

Back when the Stones were bad

Youtube removed my beautiful Rock and Roll Circus clips.

But, warning warning warning--I found a copy of the song, "Schoolboy Blues" that the Stones write to get out of their contract with their then- current record company, Decca; it's difficult to imagine a more objectionable song, so don't listen. Just don't. But, I think it's one of Mick's best vocal performances ever, and the bestiality reference always makes me giggle. No double-entendres on this song, straight up dirty stones, dirty guitar, and lyrics that would make that guy from the National Research counsel blush, or take notes. This song was released into the wild when it was available briefly on a West German best-of collection

No more live Stones on all of youtube, so I'm leaving you with this lovely ditty from current bad boy (and still alive, against all expectations) Pete Doherty, singing a song almost as radio-friendly as the Schoolboy Blues (which has an alternate title. It's a beautiful song, but the title requires a number of asterisks to write. Just listen, if you like, but you've been warned.

We now return you to your regular sky-is-falling posting.

More amusement: Sarah Palin on Russia

Or, "Our next door neighbors are foreign countries."

All you scoffers, watch this clip. Comedy gold. What? She's the VP candidate for a 74 year old man who's already survived several bouts of Melanoma? Uhhh, tight pants in my next post, promise!

Transcript--for easy memorization.

COURIC: You've cited Alaska's proximity to Russia as part of your foreign policy experience. What did you mean by that?

PALIN: That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and on our other side, the land-- boundary that we have with-- Canada. It-- it's funny that a comment like that was-- kind of made to-- cari-- I don't know, you know? Reporters--


PALIN: Yeah, mocked, I guess that's the word, yeah.

COURIC: Explain to me why that enhances your foreign policy credentials.

PALIN: Well, it certainly does because our-- our next door neighbors are foreign countries. They're in the state that I am the executive of. And there in Russia--

COURIC: Have you ever been involved with any negotiations, for example, with the Russians?

PALIN: We have trade missions back and forth. We-- we do-- it's very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where-- where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border. It is-- from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there. They are right next to-- to our state.

Thanks, Huffington Post.

The peril of rumors.

Rumor has it that my blog is too depressing to read! Hmmmph. There was that Woody Allen clip, and I do so like my young Brits in tight, yet always ill-fitting pants. (Do they have special tailors?) But if that is not enough to satisfy you, dear reader, to show my good sportsmanlike nature and all-around sprightliness, I've decided to post a pretty (in the non-ironical "Pretty" sense) musical interlude. For reals. Stop laughing, you in the back. Troublemakers. You can tell by the white shirts.

So, here's a gaelic spinning song by Julia Fowlis. She grew up in one of the few remaining Gaelic-speaking communities in the Outer Hebrides. I tried to find her version of "Blackbird" in Gaelic, which I have, but it appears unavailable on the intertubes. You could always contact me....

Just a pic with her voice, but what a voice!

McCain: I can't debate because the dog ate my homework.

Or perhaps, cough, cough, he has a cold, so if we could just postpone the algebra test , Debate, until he feels up to it.

According to the New York Times, John McCain has not been spending that much time preparing for the debates. So, call for a time-out! Brilliant!

The debate on Friday was to focus on Mr. McCain’s perceived strength, foreign policy. Mr. McCain had not planned to devote large blocks of time to debate practice as did Mr. Obama, who was holing up with a tight circle of advisers at a hotel in Clearwater, Fla., on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to prepare. Mr. McCain had a preparatory session on Wednesday afternoon at the Morgan Library in Manhattan, but advisers said it had been interrupted by his decision, announced immediately afterward, to suspend his campaign.
Preparatory session Wednesday? Uh huh.

From the comments, thanks MFranti! Some of us do our homework.

i really liked obama's response

"Presidents are going to have to deal with more than one thing at a time. It's not necessary for us to think that we can only do one thing and suspend everything else.... We've both got big planes. We've painted our slogans on the sides of them. They can get us from Washington, D.C. to Mississippi pretty quickly."

Sarah Palin (Bible Spice*), now with improved witch-repelling power.

Sample witches that should be on the lookout for our vice-presidential candidate.

This video was taken at the Wasilla Assembly of God in 2005. Sarah Palin comes on stage around 7:00; the Reverend Muthee protects her against "every form of witchcraft" around 8:40. Useful feature in a candidate. Do you suppose being a democrat automatically makes one a witch or is there some fashion requirement as well?

Another tidbit from the sermon: new elective in the public schools--"tongue-talking, devil casting."
You go to any school, there is what we call Christian Union. Christian Union is nothing more but a bunch of kids that are born again, spirit-filled, tongue-talking, devil-casting. Is anybody hearing me? All over the country! Is anybody hearing me?

The Great Glenn Greenwald on the current whopping bailout of the various culpable financial entities:

I don't pretend to know anywhere near enough -- in terms of either raw information or expertise -- in order to opine on the necessity or lack thereof of The Latest Plan in terms of whether the alternatives are worse. But what I do know is that an injustice so grave and extreme that it defies words is taking place; that the greatest beneficiaries are those who are most culpable; and that the same hopelessly broken and deeply rotted institutions and elite class that gave rise to all of this (and so much more) are the very ones that are -- yet again -- being blindly entrusted to solve this.

The Faces in their Prime

So, now that I've gotten everyone suicidal (What? You feel fine? Go back, read my last four posts, with links, and get back to me), as a treat, I trolled youtube for what I think is the very best rock and roll band ever, in their prime. Ladies and gents, I present, The Faces, circa 1971, in that brief moment after Rod Stewart found his voice, but before he realized it. Please notice that though the rest of the band is somewhat lacking in that department, Ron Wood has a tiny, and quite lovely ass, only noticeable by the tightness of his (curiously ill-fitting) pants. Oh, wait. Uhmm. Ron Wood's slide guitar playing, what I meant to discuss, is rather astonishing--sweet and subtle. He never really got his due, but the 7 figure paychecks from the gigs with the Rolling Stones mst have taken away the sting, which he never would have noticed anyway.. Did you know he comes from a family of water gypsies? 'Tis true. Rod Stewart is in the pic, somewhere too. This clip also features Ronnie Lane; after he left, the Faces were never the same. Anywhooo.....; you really really really really should listen,pippples. Or I shall be very cross. Rock and Roll doesn't get any better.

So, now you know how badly we're hurting, what to do?

To quote Ryan Adams: "I feel like suicide, but there's bars out here for miles...."

If bars aren't your thing insert favorite obsession/hobby, i.e., roses, home grown tomatoes, skateboarding, poker, records, changing poopy diapers.....

Shortest possible post about the financial disaster

Screw up biiiiiig time,
Get massive bailout from happy, friendly government, and a pony!

Screw up a tiny bit, say, go into bankruptcy because of illness,
get F***ed.

Whither the Financial Bailout?

Why are we handing Paulson a blank check worth something on the order of $700,000,000,000 to $1,000,000,000,000? (I counted those zeroes very carefully, using words, seven hundred billion to one trillion dollars.) Because, silly, the economy can't, like, totally tank, six weeks before an election. I mean, duh. What's a trillion dollars compared to the horror of Democratic rule?

According to Naked Capitalism, we're just pouring the money down the drain (or, rather, into the pockets of those whose pockets are already rather generously lined.) I see no reason to disagree.

Kiss the US as a first world country goodbye. Goodbye!

Saturday, September 20, 2008

Marx, laughing

Finally, the US government (e.g., Paulson, Bernake, Bush, the various and assorted members or Congress et al.), have noticed that something is wrong with our economy. Their solution? Why, now that the financial sector is not only bankrupt, but in an unknown, but possiby catastrophic amount of debt, and now that those that looted the money are--where are they, anyway? Counting said loot on private islands? Writing opinion pieces for the NYT? Donating large sums of money to the GOP? Giving advice to the Fed? At the Fed?
The finance sector of the economy is, essentialy, being nationalized; this means that you and I, dear taxpayer, are being stuck with the cost, to the tune of 500 Billion to One Trillion Dollars according to the Treasury Secretary, Henry Paulson, whom, one would think, would be in a position to know. Just as an aside, he used to be former Chief executive for Goldman Sachs, with a net worth at around $700 million dollars. No pain for him here.

From Naked Capitalism, who actually reads the fine print in those bills in front of Congress:

Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.

Briefly, Paulson has totally free reign to pay off his bff's to the tune of, as already mentioned a ^%$#@'d amount of money. Lucky us. And, according to the current legislation, there is nary a thing we can do about it. What, you don't have his cell phone? Tough tookies. You're clearly one of the preterite, destined for hell, sooner or later. Sooner, I'm guessing. I'm not angry or anything.

Privatize the profits, nationalize the losses, as the saying goes. Thank you, President Reagan, Bush, and Bush. And a bit of a tip of the Chapeau to Clinton.

I say, let the bodies hit the floor.

Sarah Palin: Epic Fail

Scene: A Town Hall with John McCain

Asked for “specific skills” she could cite to rebut critics who question her grasp of international affairs, she replied, “I am prepared.”

“I have that confidence. I have that readiness,” Palin said. “And if you want specifics with specific policies or countries, you can go ahead and ask me. You can play ’stump the candidate’ if you want to. But we are ready to serve.”

What, dear reader(s)? You want more?

In response to the question “Give us some details and examples of your strategies and plan for economic empowerment for women,” she replied:

“Well first let me take a shot at that, and I’ll tell ya, I’m a product of Title IX in our schools, where equal education and equal opportunities in sports really helped propel me into the—I guess into the position that I’m in today where,” Palin said.

McCain then interjected, “Could I mention she was a point guard on a state championship basketball team.”

After the crowd’s applause died down, Palin continued: “Sports were very, very important to me growing up, you know just learning about self discipline and healthy competition and about what it takes to win and even how to graciously lose sometimes. But how to win, that’s what it teaches ya. Now, I was a product of Title IX where legislation allowed that equal opportunity. Now if we have to still keep going down that road to create more legislation, to get with it in the 21st century, to make sure that women do have equality especially in the work place, then we’re there because we understand that in this age we have all got to be working together. I respect you so much that you are a Democrat recognizing that John McCain and me as a team of mavericks understand where you’re coming from, and we can work together on these issues. But yup, equality for women, for all, that’s going to be part of the agenda and I thank you for that question.”

I have no idea what she's talking about, either.

From CBS News

Palin fires top cop for taking sex abuse seriously, seriously.

From Talking Points Memo.

Sarah Palin is having trouble keeping her stories straight about why she fired her public safety director in Trooper-Gate.

At one point, she went so far as to say she hadn't fired him at all: he'd quit. But now, with help from the McCain campaign, she's come up with a new justification for what is again being called a firing: insubordination.

And what, you ask, did he do that was supposedly insubordinate? He was too aggressive in trying to go after sex offenders, specifically child molesters. Seriously.

Palin thinks Jesus will return in her lifetime

So why bother with global warming, or any sort of conservation of resources? Hey! Blowing up the Mideast might be a good thing because it would bring on the end of days! Good times! Where is our press corps?

Another valley activist, Philip Munger, says that Palin also helped push the evangelical drive to take over the Mat-Su Borough school board. "She wanted to get people who believed in creationism on the board," said Munger, a music composer and teacher. "I bumped into her once after my band played at a graduation ceremony at the Assembly of God. I said, 'Sarah, how can you believe in creationism -- your father's a science teacher.' And she said, 'We don't have to agree on everything.'

"I pushed her on the earth's creation, whether it was really less than 7,000 years old and whether dinosaurs and humans walked the earth at the same time. And she said yes, she'd seen images somewhere of dinosaur fossils with human footprints in them."

Munger also asked Palin if she truly believed in the End of Days, the doomsday scenario when the Messiah will return. "She looked in my eyes and said, 'Yes, I think I will see Jesus come back to earth in my lifetime.'

From Salon

Plus as a bonus, the original article that ran about Palin's attempt to censor the library in Wasilla.

Kiss the pill goodbye, ladies

John McCain believe that life starts at conception. And Gays? No rights for them.

See more funny videos at Funny or Die

You see, the pill can be seen as preventing implantation of egg + sperm combination, as can most forms of non-barrier contraception. This is the current view of our the current administration.

Video of Sarah Palin Supporting Bridge to Nowhere

And annotated guide via Talking Points Memo.

Must Love Cows

Sarah Palin appointed a childhood friend, Frances Havemeister, formerly a real estate agent, to the post of Director of the State Division of Agriculture, because, and, could I make this up, dear reader(s)? Frances' childhood love of cows. Four other childhood friends, also with fashionably thin resumes, were also appointed to big ol' governmental positions. Now aren't you saaad you said that mean thing about Miss Sarah back in 7th grade?

Let's play a game! Assuming she forgot you called her a sl*t back in the day because you saw her kissing Frances H, what jobs are you qualified for in the Palin administration? I'll start. I could be the Director of the State Department of Health because I have gone to the Doctor a number of times in my life, and even have gotten a vast array of prescriptions filled! Oh, and I dated a, well, he wasn't a doctor yet, but he was going to be one.....

From the New York Times, read the whoooole thing.

Amanda's Tattoos

We, the denizens of Mississippi Avenue have the good luck of having the best wine bar in town on our street--Lupa. Its owner, Amanda, has some lovely tattoos, documented below.

Sarah Palin, liar liar, cute little skirt on fire

How shall I count the lies?

Her entire persona is a lie. The Republicans presented her--straight up--as a reformer when she is no such thing. She is, rather, the opposite. Her well documented positions are the exact opposite of what John McCain and she are now stating. What's that called? Oh, yeah, a LIE.

Her support for the "Bridge to Nowhere" was a centerpiece of her 2006 campaign for Governor of Alaska.

Earmarks? Unlike what she and John McCain scurry around the country stating loudly and clearly--that she's against against against those eeeevil things--she's twice as good at them then anyone else. TWICE!!!!!! Not only a lie, but a masterful, astonishing, shake your hand, stare in awe sort of lie. My goodness folks, not only is the man not behind the curtain, but he doesn't even care if we pay attention.

The Palin administration requested 31 earmarks this year totaling $200 million and “we are not abandoning earmarks altogether,” Katz said, as they are a “legitimate exercise of Congress’ constitutional power to amend the budget proposed by the president.”

Above From Here.

Alaska has consistently been the largest per capita beneficiary of federal earmarks, in part because the state's congressional delegation is powerful and provides well for a small population in a state with a large federal presence.

Alaskans receive almost twice as much per capita in earmark spending -- $506 -- as the second-ranking state, Hawaii.

Above two quotes, from the Los Angeles Times.

Wasilla under Palin Charged Rape Victims

up to $1200.00 for their rape kits! Only town in Alaska that did that. Guess they needed the money to redecorate the mayor's office.

USA Today has even more information Here.

All we can safely say about Palin being Pro-woman is that she does not have a Y chromosome. Other than that, I admit confusion.

It's good someone is vetting the Vice President. It's, shall we say, unfortunate, that it is the National Enquirer and not, you know, the Republicans.

Garfield minus Garfield

I would like to introduce my readers to a truly brilliant comic (and thought I do throw that term around lightly, uh, I intend a certain weight here) I give you Garfield minus Garfield. In the words of the Genius behind it:

Garfield Minus Garfield is a site dedicated to removing Garfield from the Garfield comic strips in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle. It is a journey deep into the mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb.

Sample strips can be found over on my sidebar.

John McCain's son leaps from flaming bank moments before collapse

OK, Andrew McCain resigned July 26th from "Silver State" Bank in Nevada. Silver State just failed. Whew. What good timing the lad has! All clap now. The good news is that this is expected to cost the taxpayers (you and me, folks) only a half billion or so smackers. Not to be confused with real currency, like "loonies." Lucky us.

Remember Neil Bush? Silverado Savings and Loan? Neither do I.

"So Sambo Beat the Bitch"

Sarah Palin's succinct summary of the Democratic outcome.

Sounds like the Republicans found the perfect candidate--racist, sexist, vindictive, mean, and incompetent.

And what has she done since winning the job?

According to Kilkenny, nothing. Well, nothing other than suggesting the state’s multi-multi-million dollar, oil-generated surplus be distributed to residents and finance future state needs by borrowing money. Gee, doesn’t that sound precisely what George Bush did with the surplus he inherited from Bill Clinton in 2001 and we all know in what great shape Bush’s economic policies left the nation.

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

Someone who grew up with Sarah Palin writes a letter.

You can see it here...

Read it all--here's a bit; buy off the populace by impoverishing the state. Good Repub. she.

As an oil producer, the high price of oil has created a budget surplus
in Alaska. Rather than invest this surplus in technology that will
make us energy independent and increase efficiency, as Governor she
proposed distribution of this surplus to every individual in the state.

In this time of record state revenues and budget surpluses, she
recommended that the state borrow/bond for road projects, even while
she proposed distribution of surplus state revenues: spend today's
surplus, borrow for needs.

Sarah Palin Really Really Really hates Bears

Take a look at this blog by actual Alaskans documenting Mrs. Palin's war against bears.


Sarah Palin's Daughter is Pregnant.

Well, now, the Palin camp is saying the Bristol ***Is currently pregnant*** and will marry the father. So......hmmmmm. They were trying to hide Bristol's pregnancy while Mom was really pregnant, or the first baby (that mom faked) really is Bristol's and then she went and did it again--but good luck! Bristol got preggers again. Let's wait and see when the child is actually born. So fun! (Except for the actual humans involved.) It's almost like watching soap operas! Or a train wreck! All I can say is that I hope for an evil twin in the future. Or at least someone in a cape.

At least, let's all give a shout-out for abstinence-only education. Works every time. Until, you know, that one time....
