Military Times: Rummy Must Go

Bruising, indeed.

The choice is now clear. Republican candidates for Congress and the Senate can either stand with our troops, or they can stand with Bush. The two are no longer compatible.

Monday, an incredible rare joint editorial will run in the Army Times, the Air Force Times, and the Navy Times:

Time for Rumsfeld to go

“So long as our government requires the backing of an aroused and informed public opinion … it is necessary to tell the hard bruising truth.”

Cheap, Simple, Effective

So, being culturally clueless (even before I moved to the Bubble) I missed this totally cool little ditty that's been making the rounds on airwaves in all sorts of cheap markets (scroll down for the YouTube). It rocks! And I bet it works, really, really well. Seems like a classic case of K.I.S.S to me: catchy, adaptable, inoffensive, simple in message. And for all the 'negativity' of the message, positive-feeling, and upbeat. Political genius. Read more about Cheap, Simple, Effective

Vice-President Cheney This Morning
Courtesy of ABC News

Dick Cheney, in his interview with George Stephanopoulis this morning, was resplendent in a beautifully tailored dark suit, white shirt, and yellow silk tie, a flag pin on his lapel, the perfect compliment to the whole look; For a man of his age, with a history of serious heart problems, I was struck with how remarkably well he looks, in the pink and then some, a tribute to American tailoring and a level of health care most Americans can barely imagine anymore.

Walking the Talk, part I

Been telling y'all not to buy new stuff and to pay cash for your second hand goodies. Did better than that today. Got back online courtesy of an amalgam of sympathetic magic and assorted salvaged parts from (innumerable) 'dead' computers. Read more about Walking the Talk, part I

GOTV, Distributed Online Network Style

Even my lazy butt found the energy to participate in Move On's "Call For Change" GOTV effort today. It really is easy as Pi. You can sign up and get started instantly to call in the next 2 days.

From the comfort of my San Francisco apartment I made 33 calls in an hour to people in battleground districts. These are people who would never read blogs but now know somebody somewhere gives a damn about how they vote on Tuesday.

3 people I talked to were very interesting: Read more about GOTV, Distributed Online Network Style

Dirty Republicans

No, wait, this is a new one:

Harassing robocalls from Republicans purporting to be from Democrats. Fucking Republican shape-shifing operatives.

Webbing in VA

Lordy I'm tired. A couple of thoughts while I soak my feet. Today, I ran around with one of the grrls from Blondesense working for Webb and against the hate amendment in VA. It was fun, informative, and tiring. Read more about Webbing in VA

Data

X's recent post on data mining makes me think, and I'm going to be a bit contrarian if I may. Bear with me as I digress a bit. Read more about Data

Daily Drudgery: Blogging on Wars We'll Never Win

Saddam is guilty. I guess he's sorry now that all that chumminess with Rummy back in the day didn't pay off. Or something. As most of the blogosphere has noted, ah, such timing. So....yawn inducing. Meanwhile, we're still not winning in Iraq or Afghanistan, police forces in both countries are a joke, and military and political leadership continues to live upon the River in Egypt.

Home Stretch Numbers

Looking good, Billy Ray. Ruy has some more to say. At this point, I think there is little purpose to reviewing additional last minute polling. Either the methodology is sound, and we should expect races to reflect the numbers as of this weekend, or the majik faeries of the evoting ether will prove to us once again not to trust our lying eyes.

Black Helicopters and Microwave Rays

The Dark Wraith, a charming and entertaining Intertubes personality, relates an encounter with one of his students, a determined but math challenged Army regular. DW wonders if he should be concerned to hear from his student that activities on the base include training for dealing with domestic riot control, under the auspices of Homeland Security regulation/protocol.
