If you have "no place to go," come here!

"I trust God speaks through me. Without that, I couldn’t do my job."

[Quote from The Dignified One.]

So, apparently God says "Shit'"!

Is it OK for us to say Fuck, now?

Actually, God's not saying "shit."

Goodnight, moon

And speaking of Saurians (via looseheadprop at FDL)

Light to no posting from me for the next few days as I attempt to finish some unfinished business...

The good news is, that I won't have to train my acorn squash at all:

Due to the location of the garden, they are all growing toward the late afternoon sun in exactly the direction where I won't have to worry about them! Read below the fold...

Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy - The Gays

"The Gays," performed by The Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy

(to the tune of Fastball's "The Way")

They made up their minds

And started amending

They blew off all important work that day

So thinly veiled

The hate that they were sending

They're barely disguising

That they're demonizing the gays

They drank their Kool-Aid

And started revising

The Bill of Rights to keep new rights at bay

It don't take morals

It just takes moralizing

Legitimizing

Harvesting the Dead

General JC Christian sent John Stossel a letter congratulating him upon his bold plan to open up health markets and "let the organs fly where they may." I myself look forward to the day when I can pick up a spleen or pancreas at a neighborhood yard sale. "How much for the viscera?" Read below the fold...

Eggs Ads? You Ration....

Thread: 

Wouldn't it be a lot easier to print an ad on the package? Or just, like, you know, buy one on a site lots of people read every day?

CBS plans to announce today that it will place laser imprints of its trademark eye insignia, as well as logos for some of its shows, on eggs — 35 million of them in September and October. Read below the fold...

That Humming Sound You're Hearing?

It's the onrushing voice of DOOM, just as you suspected all along. From the AP Alabama news wire:

To the bafflement of insect experts, gigantic yellow jacket nests have started turning up in old barns, unoccupied houses, cars and underground cavities across the southern two-thirds of Alabama. Read below the fold...

Why do we blame the reporters when it's the editors?

Sure, Judy "Kneepads" Miller, "Steno Sue" Schmidt, Jeff Gerth on Whitewater--The list goes on and on. But there are plenty of traditiona press reporters who just do their jobs: Walter Pincus comes to mind at once. And Seymour Hersh.

But the reporters aren't responsible for assigning the stories. The reporters aren't responsible for what's front page news and what isn't. The resporters aren't responsible for which reporters get hired or fired, or for newsroom culture. And the reporters aren't responsible for the headlines. Read below the fold...

VLWC Gets Money, Becomes "Troubling"

The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy has been in operation for years, indeed decades. Funded by a stealthy group of those who are either wealthy in their own right or capable of generating wealthy via donations from ignorant rubes, fearful fundamentalists, corporatists buying influence suckers for a particular cause, they have built an impressive structure of think tanks, "educational" organizations, and "groups" which consist mostly of letterheads with impressive sounding names but membership consisting of unemployed Republican operatives and those hoping to become such in future administrations.

The Mighty Diplomat Speaks

[I just consolidated Xan's post and mine. There are two explanations for any state of human affairs: Fuck up, and conspiracy. Xan says Fuck up, I say conspiracy.]

Xan: It's a Fuckup
Displaying the immense grasp of the intricacies of geopolitics for which He has been recognized worldwide, the near-omnipotent subtlety of thought, Dear Leader solves the Middle East's current crisis. My God, why were we not blessed with his wisdom long ago?

''See the irony is that what they need to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this s--- and it's over,'' Bush told Blair as he chewed on a buttered roll. Read below the fold...

Sunday Gasbaggery: All The Rest

Departments: 

Disasters of War
Disaters Of War

Condi Rice was everywhere this morning. And everwhere that Condi went, her devotion to George Bush was never far behind.

Speaking from the G-8 conference, Condi was robotic, repetitious, unspontaneous, and unconvincing, perhaps because her discussion and explanations were studded with talking points.

She didn't sound like a Secretary of State, she sounded like a low-level spokesperson spouting propoganda. Read below the fold...

Goodnight, moon

Last night I saw two skunks come up from the hill in back of the house and along the side yard, where they disappeared around the corner of another house.
