Neocon Bedtime Stories

Darling, darling neocons
Upon the pillow lies the head
Sleep arrives, a frightened guest
Learns to hide among the dead

MACBETH

Methought I heard a voice cry 'Sleep no more!
Macbeth does murder sleep', the innocent sleep,
Sleep that knits up the ravell'd sleeve of care,
The death of each day's life, sore labour's bath,
Balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course,
Chief nourisher in life's feast,--

LADY MACBETH

Repeat after me: "There are more important stories than JonBenet!"

"There are more important stories than JonBenet!"

Then again...

TalkLeft has great posts on this, including the one about Karr drinking champagne on the flight back to the US, and his sex change operations.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Or that. Read below the fold...

Hmmm...

From one part of the Sunday Times, Ryan Lizza:

“At least one big-time journalist will have their career or life ruined because some element of their behavior that was heretofore private will be exposed publicly,” predicted a senior adviser to a potential 2008 presidential candidate. The adviser requested that his name not be used because he did not want his personal views to be taken for his boss’s.

Bush the Bad Dad

[Thought I'd reprint this golden oldie (from February 2005). Now that we've got permission to engage in something other than hagiography when we write about Dear Leader.]

I don't know where this Republicans-as-Dad thing comes from, I really don't. Read below the fold...

The Iraq "civil war" is the endless war that authoritarians wanted

But at least we have permission to say "civil war" now.

Winning a Gold Macaca

A record that sells 100,000 copies qualifies as a Gold Record. According to a very interesting story in today's Richmond VA Times-Dispatch, the video of Sen. George Allen calling a native-born Virginian American a "macaca" has now been viewed on YouTube more than 250,000 times. Read below the fold...

From the Department of It's About Fucking Time

Pundits losing faith in Bush (Great headline).

Of course, "pundits" are by definition authoritarian pundits, but let that pass:

For 10 minutes, the talk show host grilled his guests about whether "George Bush's mental weakness is damaging America's credibility at home and abroad." For 10 minutes, the caption across the bottom of the television screen read, "IS BUSH AN 'IDIOT'?"

But the host was no liberal media elitist.

Big dreams in a small town

So today, in a manner of speaking, I went home. Not to the town my high school was in, but to the next town over, the county seat. So much has changed since 1978. Hard to believe; and yet, so much is the same -- water is still your sharpest need, if you farm on the high plains. Or live at the confluence of New Mexico and Texas. I live 75 miles away, now; and I saw my first-ever "Had Enough? Vote Democrat!" sticker on a screaming-yellow H2 Hummer. Company truck, at that. Read below the fold...

Goodnight, moon
