Black Flag: The Blog

Sigh. Time for another blogger ethics panel. What is that now, like #3782?

Seriously, will you media people just do me a favor and learn how to use the intertubes? My 80something grandmothers have figured it out, I can't believe it's that hard to do. Read below the fold...

Hispanics to be Banned from TN Park System

Thread: 

I guess I should rejoice that city fathers aren't proposing to ship all Black folks back to Africa. Look out, Latina Vols: it's roundup time.

Ten-Fold Increase in Vet Mental Disorders

You read that right. Ten-fold. If that's not the clearest sign we're losing the war, I don't know what is.

Under the Radar

I've got a lot to do today, forgive the grab bagging. Pensions: do you have one? I honestly can't tell if this bill is a good thing or not, but since Bush signed it, I'm inclined to think it will make things worse. Read below the fold...

Snatching Defeat From the Jaws of Victory

There aren't a lot of hard numbers in this typically lame piece from the WaPo, but it is close to what I think. You heard it here first: there's a really good chance that the Republicans will retain control of both houses this fall. Why? I can think of a couple of reasons. Read below the fold...

Speaking of "Lost" or, How Much Cash Can You Stuff In One Plane?

Keep this handy. You could even print out a few pages and you know, just leave them lying around your workplace or church. Most of it isn't news to you, but I bet it is to your friends who watch the TV news:

How Do You Say "Lost" in Farsi?

I knew it. You knew it. But for most Republicans, this is going to come as a surprise. Because they still think you can win a war by having 22 year old daughters of political hacks in charge of reconstruction and faith-based no-bid contracting as SOP:

Goodnight, moon

You'd think the pro-torture "compromise" the Republicans reached after McCain's little kabuki dance would be enough so squelch that noxious "independent" line that David "Dean" Floater and the Vanity08 crowd are pushing--how do you split the difference on torture, anyhow--but n-o-o-o-o-o.

I think I'm going go listen to Bill Clinton leave Chris Wallace whimpering. Again. Read below the fold...

Stupid NARAL. Honestly, are they Republican moles?

Katha Pollit:

Connecticut is a major battleground. If Joe Courtney beats Rob Simmons, and Diane Farrell beats Chris Shays, and Chris Murphy beats Nancy Johnson, little Connecticut will give Democrats three of the 15 seats they need to take back the House. That's quite an opportunity! Or maybe not:

So, who does NARAL want to win? Read below the fold...

One word, Dave (may I call you Dave?)

That word is: Disintermediation.

Why on earth would I read "David Broder" when I can read a hundred bloggers with better style, better analysis, and better information, and all of it more timely?

Your brand is shopworn. You're old and in the way. Don't go away mad. But please--

Go away.

I'll link to Broder's latest mind-boggling fantasy only because I might get some minimal number of hits from WaPo. Read below the fold...

Of "rebellion" and "compromise"

Clinton. Blowjob. Impeachment. $20 million.

Bush. Massive lawbreaking. Retroactive legalization. $0.

Some "rebellion," huh? And get a load of that "compromise"!

Had enough?
