Times admits bias!

From an online interview with Times Assistant Managing Editor Gerald Marzorati, answering one Ms. Farkas, who asks what the target audience is for T, the Time's luxe yet strangely airless and dull semi-gloss magazine for those who can afford $1000 suitcases--and those who aspire to, and even those who aspire to aspire to: Read below the fold...

Katherine Harris: "And besides, I don't have a moustache!"

I know this is like shooting weasels in a barrel, but the increasingly desperate Katherine Harris is calling on Howard Dean to apologize. And for what?

Dean said in Wednesday's speech that Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson is "going to beat the pants off Katherine Harris, who didn't understand that it is ethically improper to be the chairman of a campaign and count the votes at the same time. This is not Russia and she is not Stalin."

Loyal to Oil a Soil Embroiled

Greg Palast, writing for Guardian Unlimited:

Why not? Why haven't those we laughably call the "leaders" of the US, Iran and Saudi Arabia called back their delinquent spawn, cut off their allowances and grounded them for six months?

Speaking of Info-War....any DishNetwork users out there?

Sometime before 5:15 p.m. Central Daylight Time today, Thursday July 27 2006, every network station on my Dish TV-supplied signal began displaying a blue screen with the words WE ARE HAVING TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES--PLEASE STAND BY. The problem persisted until 5:55 p.m. or thereabouts when everything (at least the NBC signal) came back on for the final story of the day, appropriately enough about those stunningly annoying "Head-ON" headache inducers/remedy ads.

The look of desperation

Those eyes! Those eyes!

Yes, defending the indefensible is hard work.

Say, I wonder if Pony Blow's ever been briefed on who gave "Jeff Gannon" his overnight pass. Because I think we still don't know. Read below the fold...

America's newest pop tart!

In honor of the hearings on Specter's bill to retrotractively legalize Bush's warrantless surveillance program in exchange for a Bush's promise to have the program reviewed by a secret court, play this if you can bear to watch!

Britney then:

"Honestly, I think we should just trust our president in every decision he makes and should just support that, you know, and be faithful in what happens."

Arlen now:

"I trust the president. He overruled the staff in our meeting. He's come to grips with the specifics, and he's given his word."

Poor, poor Arlen. Read below the fold...

Free Beauregard Scaife!

Oooh, this should be fun. There is just nothing like a good, dirty, bloody, knock-down-drag-out divorce battle to bring air and sunshine to a pile of shit, and we can think of nobody more deserving of that label than Mr. billionaire newspaper publisher Richard Mellon Scaife. Read below the fold...

What do you fear more? Ignorance of Arabic or Teh Gay?

For Republicans, teh gay:

A decorated sergeant and Arabic language specialist was dismissed from the U.S. Army under the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, though he says he never told his superiors he was gay and his accuser was never identified.

"Santorum" Dough A No-Go For Santorum Foe

Okay, we all know the ground rules of political donations. You do not let your campaign take money from certain types of organizations nor people affiliated with same-- the KKK, Aryan Nations, Pedophiles for Peace, Goat-Rapers For Social Change, Jack Abramoff, etc. No matter how badly you need campaign dough, you get more mileage out of sending some contributions back than you do from keeping them. But then again there are always gray areas. Perhaps this particular case is better described as a brown area.... Read below the fold...

Tightening the Belt

My esteemed co-religionist Hecate has an intersting post she calls Do You Have A Freezer?. In it she takes a look at what the current summer's heat wave is doing in Europe. For instance

Interesting report from BBC concerning the effect of global climate change on harvests in the UK. Production of perishable fruits, such as strawberries, appears to be up, as is demand, driven by, what one imagines, must be lower prices. However, "the grain harvest is likely to be badly hit."

Tryout in the Sticks?

Have we got this Lebanon War thing all wrong?

Now it goes without saying that the claimed reasons for all this carnage are absurd on the face of them. But our theories--that I've seen offered anyway--tend to burst into ignominious flame when subjected to the Beam of Reality Sunshine Through The Magnifying Glass of Logic, alas. It doesn't make any fucking sense to do what Israel is doing, on the scale that they're doing it. Protecting their tourism industry? (Yeah, I've seen it suggested)--to reclaim a useful phrase, gimme a break. Read below the fold...

Taking a break from Ho Lieberman bashing

Thread: 

Not that there's anything wrong with that!

What kelley b said:

In the guise of delivering freedom, people have embraced a corporate society which uses their passions, their love, their needs, and their religion to control them and kill them.

Think about someone's life while spending time at their deathbed and see if thoughts like this don't come to your mind. I know they did to mine.

If somebody's body, like Herod's, was infested bby worms, we'd recoil with horror at their suffering. Read below the fold...
