Saturday Stuff

Sam Seder brings us a moment of “Fluffyhead” Gregory fellating the supposed popularity of Governor Bully; I mention Dancin’ Dave because he’s going to head a “conference for a major GOP advocacy group,” as noted here (yep, time for another blogger ethics panel).

“Let’s see, ethics and journalistic integrity, ethics and journalistic integrity…now where did I put that SPJ handbook again…”

And imagine the hue and cry if Rachel Maddow did the same thing for the Dems (and no, assuming he was still working, Keith Olbermann attending Netroots Nation – which he won’t this year due to a surgical procedure – isn’t the same thing since the Dems don’t really pay attention to N.N., not enough of them anyway – they’d be better off if they did).

As for Governor Bully running in 2016, I'd love to see that. All of this crap about how he's supposedly so overwhelmingly popular, a fabled Beltway media narrative, would be crushed once and for all (and by the way, kudos to Seder for being pissed off - more like this)...

…and as the immortal Mr. S. once said, “Happy Mother’s Day to all you muthas out there.”

Friday Stuff

(By the way, for what it’s worth, I also posted some stuff here.)

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll just steal a couple of videos from Crooks and Liars; first, did you know that Thomas Friedman Is An Enormous Moustache (here)? And that, as far as the esteemed New York Times pundit is concerned, it’s entirely the fault of President Obama that he hasn’t been “transformational” enough to rise about petty partisan politics?

Sure you did…

Update 5/16/12: OK, to be fair, this is a good Friedman column, and yes, it involves the Internet.

…and speaking of petty partisan politics, kudos to Harry Reid for calling out Sen. Mr. Elaine Chao and his pals here (as I’ve said, somebody votes for this idiots, including this Mourdock clown in Indiana; sounds like he came from middle earth or something – acts like it too a bit...I got mad at Sen. Richard Lugar over domestic issues a couple of times, but I never questioned him on foreign policy).

Now, Harry, assuming the Dems hold the Senate, are you going to follow up on what your colleagues Sens. Merkley and Udall are proposing next year? We'll see...

…and it looks like Politifact is “mostly” stupid and “mostly” incompetent once more – wish I had one of their little “truthometers” pointing straight up like a certain middle digit on my hand…

…and tomorrow marks the 40th anniversary of the release of “Exile On Main St.,” which was kick-started by this little number (“Sticky Fingers” and probably “Let It Bleed” remain my favorite recordings from these guys, however).

Thursday Stuff

I give you the latest from the “Willard Mitt The Bully” campaign…

…who is course is wrong again, as noted here

…and I thought the best way to respond to Willard Mitt’s latest idiocy was to present Kyle in Indiana; I have no idea who this young man is, but I admire his courage and his love of country for doing what he did and making this video (yes, I said “love of country”…for more, click here)…

…and all of this just kind of put me in the mood to hear this tune once more.

Wednesday Stuff

Lick your own damn stamps, Dubya, you grifter (here, and why am I not the least bit surprised by this)…

…and as far as I’m concerned, the Log Cabin Republicans have to be the stupidest people on the planet for this, short of the Teahadists of course (and I give you another infamous moment from these clowns below)…

…and speaking of people who have a problem with reality, I give you this concerning Willard Mitt himself…

…and finally, I'm not totally sure what to make of the fact that I found an article about prog rock at NRO, but the writer kind of says, "well, it is socially conscious, a bit, but not really - well, y'know..." (didn't get all the way through it yet, but I thought it was funny to see the writer refer to The Old Gray Lady as an "opinion journal," which it is a bit I guess).

Here’s a bit of socially conscious prog rock, genius - hope you like it (sorry, no video).

Monday Stuff

OK, so Willard Mitt Romney apparently feels that he can’t stand up to a constituent who says Obama should be “tried for treason” (here)…yet, he’s running for probably the most important job in the world in which he’ll have to deal with…oh, I don’t know…dumb stuff like facing off with China, whichever nut is in charge of North Korea, Ahmadinejad and the mullahs in Iran, Putin in Russia, Assad in Syria, the latest in the Afghanistan quagmire, etc., etc., etc. (to say nothing of al Qaeda and the threat of loose nukes).

Romney would face all of those challenges, yet somehow he feels that he can’t stand up to a Teahadist wingnut – pretty damn sad...

…and I would say that Romney passed the point of merely being “cumbersome” a long time ago.
