“When he told me I smiled, picture jewels being handed to an innocent child.” Tupac

I just want to say hello to everyone and say how glad I am to be here. I know, it’s corny. I’m still getting my “sea legs” with the new interface and thought I would experiment with some posts to see what’s what. I’m still a little tired and hung over from last night. In case you missed it, Da’ Bears pulled one from their nether regions Read below the fold...

Bumper Sticker Follies: You Go Girl

Oh hell yeah. I hope she sues the pants of that department. Feh, and to think I was just talking with a friend about taking a vacation in Atlanta. None of my money will be going to Georgia any time soon, seeing as how I occasionally decorate my car with free speech indicators:

Progressive Congress: A Possibility

Booman does all the work so I don't have to. I was just talking about this with another progressive, and of the likelihood of investigatory fireworks in a Democratic majority Congress. I'm not counting any unhatched chickens here, just throwing out another reason why Rove and KennyBoi are shitting bricks every time they look at the latest poll numbers:

The Republican Kama Sutra

Abu Ghraib which position

Position #1

In truth, I don't know the actual number or name of this position; I did email Congressman Shay's office requesting his help in this matter, in the name of accuracy, but so far there has been no response.

Because I don't remember that particular position from my perusal of the other Kama Sutra. Read below the fold...

Wasted Races

The Detroit Free Press (better known as the D-Freep) had a good column a couple of days ago about a race we are almost certainly not going to win. The writer, rightly, castigates the media for their abject failure to Pay Attention to Things That Matter, but I have another gripe to offer. His thoughts first:

A couple of days ago in this space, I ventured some reasons why Michigan voters so obviously disturbed by their state's current trajectory seem poised to re-elect virtually every incumbent on the Nov. 7 ballot. Read below the fold...

Republican Corruption: It Never Ends

Thread: 

I am so fucking sick and tired of this. Is there no end? Is there a single Republican apointee in this administration who isn't in it to make more money illegally for themselves and corporations? What chaps my ass most is that this is also the guy who brought you the delay on the morning after pill. Christ. What I wouldn't give for one honest Republican who believed in small government and the rule of law. The truly sad part:

The New Slavery: Bio-Ownership

Ok, perhaps that title is a little strong. But still, I have real worry about court cases like these.

Well, well, well. The FBI sure is busy these days. I wonder what will fall from this particular family tree:

His Majesty Wipes His Ass with the Constitution

You remember it, that quaint document that once protected you from being thrown in jail forever on the whim of your King. Well, say goodbye to freedom. I hate waking up to news like this, and of course they chose the Pickler to laud His Majesty with prose that turns my stomach:

Two words, James Baker, Two Words

"Florida 2000."

We're supposed to trust that the Bush family consigliere, who helped steal the 2000 election for W, is going to suddenly put the country first, and do the right thing on Iraq?

Pull the other one. It's got bells on!

Hey, Lee Hamilton! Nice beard!

NOTE Digby says the same but, as Archie Goodwin says, Digby "knows longer words." Read below the fold...

GenderFuque

I'm on the road this week, forgive the light posting. But just to inflame some readers: what do you think? Are women smarter than men? Would you hate me if I said, "yes" most of the time? In all seriousness, I've never seen a poll unlike this one. For some reason, women seem to dislike war and pillage more than men. Why is that?

70 percent of women and 58 percent of men now oppose the war in Iraq.

That's outside the moe. Tell me why you think this should be. Read below the fold...

Give Us This Day Our Daily Froom

We are given good Froom today, starting with the headline: BUSH IN A SNIT.

[I love the word "snit," don't you? It is just about the rudest word you can use without sliding one toke over the line into actual profanity. Making it so applicable here.]

Many good bits in today's column, including a new Bush "tell": a word he uses before saying something that even he knows is complete horseshit which is going to be instantly ignored. He says "Listen..." Read below the fold...

Beat the Crowds: Lament Lamont's Loss Early

Arianna Huffington asks readers to scribe an early concession speech for Ned Lamont, in the grand tradition of "as if." Her point: Lamont is being micro-managed by professional muddlers who, in an effort to have him appeal to some imagined "middle" have only succeeded in quelling his originality and his chances to defeat the E. coli of candidates, Joe Give 'em Gastric Distress Lieberman.
