Our Seb, yesterday. Let's pass by his Beltway-standard pissing and moaning about the polarization of American politics--making one's way to the cocktail weenie table is so unpleasant lately. You never know who you'll run into! Ain't it awful?--and make our way, as few before us have, to the end of his column, where we find this gem: Read below the fold...
Evil media empires seek to distract right-thinking Dems from focusing on the 2006 mid-terms.
So fucking transparent, isn't it?
These are the guys who spent a year chattering about Al Gore and the ginned up "earth tones" story in election 2000. And now they're swooning over Barack Obama. That should tell you something, right?
Not that Barack isn't just a new, and very pretty face. Read below the fold...
This is blatant, even for the Republicans.
It really does go deeper than lying, doesn't it?
And you know some hard-working bloggers who have such low and dreadful taste that they really, really deserve this. (Not any of us of course. We are saints who eschew money and want any spare change you have lying about to go to non-R candidates who need it. We're talking about those other guys here, the ones who suck.) But now we present...From ebay Read below the fold...
We Americans are so fat. So soft, so lazy, so pathetic. This isn't meant to be a "we suck" post, but here in DC, as I run my ass up and down three flights of stairs six or sixteen times a day moving in, I can't help but think of this woman. I have power, electricity, potable water, flushing toilets, an internet connection (dial up for a while), DVDs to entertain me as I load up the closets and put away my shoes, decor, food and drink in the fridge...the list of luxuries goes on and on.

Is anyone surprised that the Iraq War turned out the way that it did for the Iraqis? (We knew the Republicans would Fuck up the war; what we couldn't imagine was the grand scale on which they were able to fuck up the peace. Now we know. It's like Katrina. Except a lot worse.)
Government small enough to drown in a bathtub? Check.
Ownership society, meaning that if you've got a gun, you own whatever you've got or can take? Check. Read below the fold...
Just in case you were thinking of voting for somebody with an R- after their names, for county sewer commissioner or something equally trivial, perhaps out of a desire to prove you're not a mindless partisan. From the ever-interesting Alabama news roundup page:
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) â€”Greg Goodwin, a Republican candidate for Madison County coroner, has been arrested on a charge of cocaine possession, but is staying in the race, his attorney says.
And of course for this deplorable deed his party is doing the noble thing and casting him forth forthwith? Snicker, snort, guffaw:
Madison County Republican chairman John Noel said no attempt will be made to replace Goodwin on the ballot unless he is convicted.
Okay, the dude was a sacrificial lamb to begin with, up against a four-term incumbent for a job where you just about have to get caught in photographed necrophilia to lose. But still, doing lamb duty in races like this is how you pay your dues. Maybe the incumbent will get unfortunately photographed, or walk in front of a bus or something, and if not, you've still got actual boots on the ground campaigning experience. It counts.
