Again, Jerid is distinguishing himself from the stale MSM coverage. This is great stuff. I look forward to many more:

Not much more from me. Busy weekend of getting some work caught up, packing for a trip to Lexington next week, and of course two days at ComFest. Look for me. I’ll be in a blue Coleman for Mayor Tee. 😉

He’s not my favorite candidate by any means, but he is smart enough to know a prezzie is gonna need the blogs in ’08 – and gonna need Ohio blog love – so the good Senator is sitting down with Jerid at BSB during his New Hampshire Project in what I’m hearing is a no pre-determined rules conversation. The most amazing thing is that they called him up, obviously riffing off of the Obama misstep of kicking Jerid out of a public event. I haven’t commented on that yet, but suffice to say I think the Obama […]

…oh where oh where has he gone?

Where has the beloved wingnut blogger wunderkid gone? Off the map is where. It appears I was spot on with this post. Not only that, it appears Jabba the Naugle got a second talking to. There’s no way in hell he doesn’t pile on with his beloved Dan Williamson’s latest shilling post about Bill Todd, nor is it normal for Matt not to comment on this post. Curiously enough, “rightangle” is back posting on the front page along with “Joe C.”. Looks like some folks were asked to pick up the […]

More Deportation Madness!

On June 22, 2007 By

Now we are turning back an Iraqi women who fled the country because she was raped by some of Saddam’s henchmen. Where are we sending her back to? War torn Iraq of course! Why? Because she fled to Mexico in order to get here. She was unaware of the policy that we hate anyone who crosses that border.

And then the county chairman for Senator John McCain’s presidential campaign, Chad Workman, made an unexpected digression: He took direct aim at Mitt Romney’s religion, according to four people at the meeting.

Workman questioned whether Mormons were Christians, discussed an article alleging that the Mormon Church helps fund Hamas, and likened the Mormons’ treatment of women to the Taliban’s, said participants, who requested anonymity to discuss the meeting freely.

One participant summed up Workman’s argument this way: “The fundamental flaw of Mitt Romney…was that he was Mormon, not because he thinks this way or that way on one […]

Talk about sleeping media. Curiously not many are talking about the fact that Rudy Guiliani quit the Iraq Study Group. Apparently raising political dough was more pressing than figuring out ways to make our country and the world safer and end the mess in Iraq. Odd. Fred Kaplan over at Slate is on it:

If you don’t read Newsday, you might not know (I didn’t until this week) that Rudy Giuliani was an original member of the Iraq Study Group?the blue-ribbon commission co-chaired by James Baker and Lee Hamilton?but he was forced out after failing to show up for any […]

Nothing to see here. Please move along. Resource wars this way –> Business as usual is this way < -- Last autumn-winter season was Europe’s warmest for more than 700 years, researchers say.

The last time Europeans saw similar temperatures to the autumn and winter of 2006-07, they were eating strawberries at Christmas in 1289, according to J?rg Luterbacher at the University of Bern, Switzerland, and colleagues.

Wingnuts say it together with me one time:

Strawberries at Christmas? Ain’t that a good thang?

Goat Fences for da Mexicuns?

On June 22, 2007 By

If I told you I made this up to be funny you’d probably believe me. I’m pretty sure my version would be nowhere near as funny as the truth:

What does a fence on the United State-Mexico border have to do with goats?

Sen. Minority Whip Trent Lott, R-Miss., was talking to reporters Wednesday about the immigration bill, when he said, “If the answer is ‘build a fence’ I’ve got two goats on my place in Mississippi. There ain’t no fence big enough, high enough, strong enough, that you can keep those goats in that fence.”

Mr. Fashion Strikes Again

On June 22, 2007 By

I’m certainly no fashion plate. A fact made painfully obviously by the recent posting of a photo of me with Mike Bloomberg.

However, a sweater and tie are certainly no match for George Bush wearing a cheesy-ass pair of black “crocs” along with “a pair of black shorts, a white camp shirt, a baseball cap with the image of an unidentified Scottish terrier and black bike socks imprinted with the presidential seal.”
