Goodnight, moon

One of my tomatoes has actually turned red. Only one. All the others are still green.

Hopefully I'll be able to ripen a few before the frost hits.

Amazingly, the color actually deepened through the day. Once they turn, they turn fast, I guess. Read below the fold...

Say Hello

Pull my finger!

Senate panel defies Bush on terror.

Good news, if it isn't Kabuki:

If the past is any guide to the future:

1. The Moderate Republicans will get to look good in their campaign ads, but

2. The Republican leadership will just rewrite everything in conference anyhow, and Read below the fold...

Once Again, "I Told You So."

Thread: 

Sigh. But does anyone listen to me? No. People, the term is "dogpile" and while I'm not vouching for them as the liberal alternative, as far as I know, they aren't doing this:

Google is "eager" to work with the Republican Party and has boosted its presence in Washington, D.C., according to Roll Call. Read below the fold...

Musharraf to Bush: "This is All Your Fault"

I guess somebody forgot to mail him a Staunch Ally Check this month:

In a speech to the European Parliament’s foreign affairs committee on Tuesday, Pakistan's President General Pervez Musharraf blamed the United States and the West for "breeding terrorism in his country by bringing in thousands of mujahideen to fight the Soviet Union in Afghanistan and then leaving Pakistan alone a decade later to face the armed warriors," according to an article at Pakistan's Daily Times published on Wednesday.

Tales of the Christ-Deprogrammed

For those who don't get the reference, it relates to the award-winning classic series from the mighty Rude Pundit, brilliantly titled "Tales of the Christ-weary." If you've not read them, I encourage you to do so. Read below the fold...

Psst! LIHOP/MIHOP is Really Pissing Them Off

Prepare for a straw shortage, because it's being bought up in mass quantities for the construction of strawmen. You know how that works, right? You take an idea, like, oh let's say, that the Sept. 11 attacks came about in some part because the Bush Administration pulled back from watching Osama bin Laden's followers to devote their energy to whipping up a war on Iraq.

That Was the Sound of Me Falling Over in Shock

Thread: 

Seriously. I think the final sign of the Apocalypse is here:

"When you can say `vaccine' and `prevent cancer' in the same sentence, I just can't see who would be against it," she said. "Surprisingly, a lot of the groups we expected to be opposed to it are not vocally opposing it and I think the reason is, why would you oppose something that prevents cancer?

Send The Bitch to Jail

I don't know if there's a chance this will really happen, but let's hope some ambitious prosecutor decides to make some hay out of throwing this sell-out, lying bitch in the slammer. I just read yesterday that something like 7 out of 10 responders to 9/11 can't be heard when they speak, their lungs are so fucked up:

Palast:

September 11, 2006Not Greg and Matt
by Greg Palast

It’s true. It’s weird. It’s nuts. The Department of Homeland Security, after a five-year hunt for Osama, has finally brought charges against… Greg Palast. I kid you not. Send your cakes with files to the Air America wing at Guantanamo.
