QOTD: "What is most important, however, is that this matter is kept discreet."

Tags: 

No, no, not Mark Foley--He's bound and gagged in rehab. Jack Abramoff:

"What is most important, however, is that this matter is kept discreet," Abramoff wrote to a colleague at the Preston, Gates & Ellis law firm. "We do not want the opponents to think that we are trying to buy the taxpayer movement."

No, no, of course not. Read below the fold...

Your Preznit Speaks

File this under thank god Holden does it so I don't have to. I know it's bad, but sometimes I just have to remind myself that yes, Virginia, this is real life and not a comic book in which Bizarro is President:

Homeless Blogging

I'm fascinated by the ways in which internet technologies introduce people to each other and to ideas that they perhaps never would have met without the tubes. There have always been marginals and people who have no interest in "running the rat race" in our country; from anarchists to end-time religious, some have always felt like there is little point to pursuing the American Dream. To me, that Dream has always been inclusive of these kinds of people, and the freedom that allows them to opt out. Read below the fold...

Democrats Who Love Tyranny

I promise you, the ones in South Shore and Boystown will always work perfectly, while the ones in certain lily-hued, properly religious neighborhoods will strangely malfunction whenever one of the Good Chicagoans is misled into temptation by a gay, black devil. Read below the fold...

Negron *is not* Foley

Registration table clarification. What I found interesting is that a majority of the election officials making this decision are Democrats. I suppose it's a "decent" compromise, it's sure better than the absentee ballot mailing "solution" proposed earlier. Still, I wonder about those laws that require any campaign signs to be so many yards away form the polling place. Oh well, it's Florida, so I suppose this is the best we can hope for.

Palm Beach Diocese asks Foley for the name of his (alleged) abuser

Based on past behavior, I don't think it's likely the Diocese would be asking this question if they thought Foley's story was true. (Remember, the only "friend" who vouched for Foley's alchoholism is also Foley's lawyer). Palm Beach Post:

The Catholic Diocese of Palm Beach has sent a formal letter asking Mark Foley's attorney to identify the clergyman who allegedly abused the former congressman.

Faithless Faggots Feigning Fealty

Feeling Christ-weary? Go watch this C&L Olbermann video and your atheist spirits will surely be uplifted. Suckers. No, really- Rove and Kennyboy have been playing you believers for suckers.

Honestly, I can't make up my mind. Are believers just really stupid, or is it that deep in the secret closets of their hearts, they too push the boundaries of sinfulness and debauchery? Read below the fold...

Your Liberal Media: Signing Statements Edition

Rozen gets it just right: how the fuck can you call yourself an "independent" journalist when you're making promises on paper to politicians not to reveal a political event? Because, a war planning session with the specific purpose of convincing a president to lead a nation to war is an event. Zakaria is a whining beotch. Because, yeah, sure, everybody gets invited to secret, secure locations in Virginia with top administration officials and offered the chance to craft policy months before the rest of the world even knows it's policy. Changing your tune isn't going to help make you more believable, you sluttish punk. Read below the fold...

Snark is Back!

Yes, the blood is in the water, and the lapdogs have tossed aside their collars and taken out the extra rows of teeth. Well, perhaps not all that. But still, this is fun:

Pressed to defend his foreign policy, Bush instead cited the "stakes" involved in the Middle East and North Korea -- 13 times.

"I understand the stakes," Bush announced. "I'm going to repeat them one more time. As a matter of fact, I'm going to spend a lot of time repeating the stakes."

Le mot du jour

Dana Milbank's semiotic analysis of Bush's press conference notes the idiosyncratic ways that the President bobbed and wove. As with last month's torture talk, the more he had to bob, the more he talked about weaving: running out the clock with Eddie Haskellesque fawning over reporters' apparel, as opposed to confessing "I got nuthin'."
