Yow! Anybody else remember when they beat GT in 1985?

"Politically feasible"? Sounds like "weasel"

One more reason to use UPS

Not only have they pulled their advertising from Stalker O'Reilly's show, they're union, and, unlike FedEx, they're not using extortion tactics against the government to fight card check.

Good for them. Read below the fold...

Spain to indict Gonzales, Yoo, Feith, Addington, Bybee, and Haynes?

The same guy who indicted Pinochet:

A high-level Spanish court has taken the first steps toward opening a criminal investigation against six former Bush administration officials, including former Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, on whether they violated international law by providing a legalistic framework to justify the use of torture of prisoners at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, an official close to the case said.

Outstanding Smackdown: Matt Taibbi to Mr. De Santis of AIG


Four days ago an AIG officer resigned, publicly, in a letter that I'd describe as primarily a "pity me, I'm a victim" whine. Matt Taibbi has even less sympathy for poor beleaguered Jake (who, it should be noted, quit his job as a political protest; I suggest this means he wasn't worried about survival, as are many of his fellow 600,000-plus Americans newly unemployed) than I do.

Obama to bankster parasites: Hey, guys, careful you don't kill the host!

Just translating:

President Barack Obama told chief executive officers from some of the largest U.S. banks to “show some restraint,” [With what? Their 401(k)s? Their houses? Their health care?] even as he courted their support for his plans to stabilize the financial markets.

Way to leverage that "populist rage" (translation: "justified outrage"), there, big guy! Read below the fold...

Alaska's Mike Doogan, Democrat, is an asshole

Just go read Mudflats.

It's the same deal up here in Zone 5b. Somehow, the Big D on the jersey doesn't mean the people who run the state are accountable, or transparent in what they do.

Imagine that!

If it's bad to govern out of anger, why is it good to govern out of snickering?

What Paul Rosenberg said on Obama's pot marijuana legalization comment, especially the part about clueless overlords.

I'm so glad that everybody who is anybody, including Obama, realizes that hippies suck. And the terrific part is that they don't feel intimidated about saying it, even if it is politically incorrect. Yay! Book 'em, Barry! Read below the fold...

Uh oh

I think I know where the banksters are going to "innovate" next:

... a proposed system for trading carbon-dioxide permits that would be one of the world’s largest derivatives markets ....

Yay! Sure, let's give control over stopping global warming to Goldman Sachs! What could go wrong?

Sorry to be cynical. But.
