Phrase of the Day: "Magisterial Condescension"

Marty Kaplan at Huffington Post on Peggy Noonan:

It established a baseline for magisterial condescension, for blindness, for night-is-day, for the gulf between Republican dead-enders and the rest of the country.

Gustav May Cancel Repub Party

Soon-To-Be-Hurricane Gustav is roaring into the Gulf of Mexico, once again threatening Louisiana.

Republicans are thinking about canceling their party. I don't know why they may want to lose all those photo opportunities.

Oh, that's right. Let's recall what photo op came out of Hurricane Katrina:

Such an adorable couple...

Meanwhile, Reverend James "Daddy" Dobson prayed for rain "of biblical proportions" last night on Denver. Instead we get a hurricane ruining the GOPper's party. Note to Jimmy, stop praying. You're making it worse.

I hope this thing dies out and spares the mainland...

But I ask...

Why does God hate Republicans?

Watching MSNBC Now - Peggy Noonan?

Clutch the pearls, what a water carrier!

What sleepazoid narcotic was she on last night. She going on and on how tepid and insignificant the Obama speech was.

I'll blame it on drugs, 'cos I'm not convinced she's a idiot. Maybe the Bush years numbed/dumbed her brain cells into hackdom.

For chrissakes, even "Pitchfork" Pat Buchanan was absolutely effusive in his praise of the speech last night:

On the other hand, I like numb, clueless, delusional Republicans. They'll never see it coming. I'm hearing some voices on "The Krazy Korner" thought the speech was mean. After Swiftboating, purple heart band aids, gay-baiting, slandereous misquotes about inventing the internet, and other Rovian tactics they cry "Meanie!"? Poor babies. Eat it! And then see if your awesome Bush-leagued health care plans cover self-induced eatin' crow related ailments.

And Krazy K-Lo at KK (who still gets moist (as in dewey eyed, you perverts) for Littly Ricky Santorum and Mittens Romney)wonders why nobody is talking about Charlie Crist as the Repub VP.

What an idiot. 'Cos his beard isn't working and you and your party have kinda demonized what that means.

I Am Dumbstruck

At a loss for words.



Here it is. Its worth every minute:

The GOP has just been defanged and declawed.

"We Need A President...

...Who puts Barney Smith before Smith Barney."

Another recovering Republican.

And the bloviating gasbags are missing it all as they talk over them, amongst themselves, and about nothing, over, and over, and over, and over again. What idiots!

Thank God for C-SPAN!

Update: However MSNBC did post it on their site:

Susan Eisenhower

A recovering Republican! The GOP is not IKE's or your grandfather's Party anymore.


Bush and McCain just got Gored!

There seems to be some kind of fire in his belly. Wonder where that comes from. This is one of the finest displays of appropriate anger and urgency I have ever seen.

John Kerry: R's... "Politics of Fear and Smear"

Republican's or Rove's "to repeat the same old politics of fear and smear". Can be used interchangably, I guess...

Where was this guy in 2004?

He's a changed man for the better.

Stealing 2nd, Bush Style

Ohio Governor Ted Strickland:

"You know, it was once said of the first George Bush that he was born on third base and thought he'd hit a triple. Well, with the 22 million new jobs and the budget surplus Bill Clinton left behind, George W. Bush came into office on third base, and then he stole second. And John McCain cheered him every step of the way."

English Please!

Roger Cohen at New York Times:
Via The Great Orange Satan

The difference from 2004 is that the country is deep into economic plight, deeper into two wars, and weary of Republican fear-mongering. It may even be ready for what Mark Greenwood, a lawyer from Dickinson, N.D., called “someone who knows how to speak the English language.”

Ain’t no question Obama can do that.

BiG Bill

I think he did more than all right.

Indicted Republican Sen Ted Stevens (Alaska) Wins Primary

This is so cool. The arguably most corrupt sitting senator (Republican, of course) wins his primary while under indictment by the most politicized, Republican favoring Justice Department, ever.

Sen Ted "Internet-Series-of-Tubes-Florida-Exit-To-Nowhere" Stevens (Alaska Alledgedly, Corrupt Republican) also argues that he is a target of a political witch hunt. From Bush's Justice Department? Yagottabekiddinme!

Methinks Republicans have to be so blatantly corrupt that it can't be ignored to warrant an indictment from these people.

Thank you, Ted, for helping us on our way to a veto and filibuster proof majority.

This is funny! Stevens supporters shouting "Four More Years!" Hey, Morons! Senate terms are six years.

This is how Republicans stay in office, by recruiting the least amongst us, the ignorant.

OK - Here's One Kick Ass Mr Dem

Montana Gov Brian Schweitzer! (D!)

Give us more of this:

Who knew. We have a Wild, Wild West again!

Of course the tittering gasbags on MSNBC, CNN & I would imagine Fox talked right over this one, all the while complaining that the Dems weren't hitting McCain McSame hard enuf or how Hil would not show enuf support for Barack.

Thank God my female man-crush Rachel Maddow is getting her own show on MSNBC

What IS IT With The Democratic Party Women???

The boyz are being left in the dust!

An Exhilarating Hillary just hit it out of the park, past our orbit, out of the galaxy and into the universe:

"No way, no how, no McCain!"

For chrissakes, I just donated $25.00 that I don't have to

And yesterday, the extremely classy Michelle, MaBelle:

Geezus, what do the poor Repugs do to follow this up with, a Cindy McBush tuppaware party with a family values theme?

Donated $25.00 there too (, $25.00 that I also don't have. Guess I'll have to drink at home for a night.

Or as the Repugs would say, 'This is bad for Obama'...

Rubdown by "Rosie"

This comes from a Slovak hidden camera show. Not sure, but I believe this is supposed to take place at a predominantly gay spa.

A New Link - Phoenix Daily Photo

A friend of mine has started a blog:

Evidently there is a new cult of bloggers who post a daily photo of something in their hometowns and then write a little essay on it. So for everything Phoenix AZ head over to Phoenix Daily Photo.

I've also added a link to the sidebar. Give Sharon some love.

The topic today is abortion. Apparently John McCain was considering a VP running mate who was rather on the pro-choice end of the spectrum...allegedly. John McCain appears to have said that abortion was not the only issue that mattered in the run for the big white house, but was only one of the issues. John McCain has never met my mother. My mother is one of those staunch pro-lifers who will take the list provided by the Catholic church of acceptable candidates to vote for and that will be the ONLY issue she will vote on. Unfortunately, my mother does NOT stand alone and there are millions just like her. The only difference I can note is what "church" provides them with their list of "acceptable candidates" worthy of a vote. When the list comes from the far right, it only means look out, they also consider things like your stance on that horror which will cause the end of the world as we know it...........(whispers) homos. Once they allow abortions, the homos are next and then the rapture will occur. So, back to abortion.

Abortion is NOT, I repeat NOT, NOT, NOT, NOT, the "problem". Abortion is but one solution to the "problem", which is unwanted pregnancy. The OB-GYN who assisted me in giving birth to my second son performed abortions at Cook County Hosp. According to her, over half of the women who came in for an abortion had NO CLUE how it was that they became pregnant. They either had NO basic understanding of the birds and bees, or they believed one of the many urban myths, such as "you cannot get pregnant the first time you have sex." Considering most of them probably did not know what "sex" was, this is not hard to believe. The one thing she said that struck me to the core was that NOT A SINGLE WOMAN was GLAD to be there. For all of them, this was a very difficult decision that would likely haunt them the rest of their lives.

According to the far right, and they know who they are, the ONLY thing kids today need to know about (dare I say it out loud) sex, is the word abstinence. That's right, just say no. Worked great for Nancy Reagan as well. The problem with abstinence programs is that they don't even begin to scratch the surface of what it is the kids are supposed to be saying no to. If we go back to the very beginning, according the far right, it didn't work that great in the garden either. It always makes me laugh to think that the very first "just say no" campaign was a total failure. They, and they know who they are, always seem to forget this. I say if you want to preach abstinence, do it from a viewpoint that might actually work. Convince the young boys to have at least a modicum of respect for the biatches and hos they plan to screw and teach the young women to respect their own bodies and to fully understand that a male teenager with raging hormones and a boner will say ANYTHING to get in your pants, and NO, he does not "love" you. I have said enough for now.

Is THIS Why Richard's Gay?

For those of us that attend high tea at the Granville Anvil occasionally, there is one customer called Richard whom we all know--socially, if not affectionately. For some reason, the awkward young man in this video so reminds me of a young (albeit far more coherent than what we're used to) Richard. Enjoy, even if you have no idea about whom I'm speaking.

John Edwards is a Pathetic Cad

But George Bush is still a genetically, moronic, idiot who should be impeached, if not thrown in jail.

Graduated from college, with high C's, he did, on his ancestors affirmative action policies for white, silver spoon-fed, incompetent, mentally impaired, fratboy descendants

Cos he sat in my chair and ruined my sleep

He was just that kind of a guy:

Somebody hold me too close,
Somebody hurt me too deep.
Somebody sit in my chair
and ruin my sleep,
and make me aware
of being alive
Being alive

Somebody need me too much
Somebody know me too well
Somebody pull me up short,
and put me through hell,
and give me support,
for being alive,
Make me alive.
Make me alive..
Make me confused,
Mock me with praise,
Let me be used,
Harry my days;
That alone...
Is alone...
Not Alive!

Somebody crowd me with love,
Somebody force me to care,
Somebody let me come through,
I'll always be there
As frightened as you,
To help us survive,
Being alive
Being Alive

I had that.

not so much anymore.

And then

He introduced me to the most fabulous people I ever met in my life, his family, and then the Sanibel Christmas families.

God save all of them, for they were there, when I needed them the most...

Still - My Man's Gone Now


There is a story. About MyKe.

It comes from a time when I was meeting him again.

People overheard me talking about My Kerry...

And someone said; who is this MiKe Harry..
and so he is MyKe 'Erry.

As it was in the beginning,
Is now and ever shall be


I have been to hell, and almost back

The Spoiled Frat Boy President is at it Again!

...and these are the same assholes who were complaining because Obama didn't wear a lapel Flag pin? I guess if you're President of the United States, you have a right to go to Communist countries and tea-bag the American flag!

I would first like to apologize to Dean for bumping his post from the top spot, but I found I had things to say and needed a place to say it. This will be a regular post whenever I find myself screaming REALLY?? My first post has to do with the ignorant masses who ride public transportation and insist we listen to whatever crap they listen to and happen to call music. Really?? You have no clue that other people are being forced to listen to your crap when you crank it up? My sons say that if I find it to be too loud, I am simply too old. I say you can play whatever you want to play, but no matter how loud you make it, it still sounds like crap. NOTHING is as rude as being forced to listen to techno crap on a Monday morning heading into work at an unholy hour and slightly hung over. REALLY??
