My. Fucking. Internet. Went. Down. At 8 p.m.

I had to flash back to the days when all the election news I could get came from the teebee networks.

I resolve hereby to lead a more virtuous life. Because I have had a glimpse of hell.


Of course it seems to be turning back around now. The bigots won in Tennessee, and I intend to start tomorrow to bring this to their attention. But Missouri? Tom, my brother, stand up and take a bow. Virginia? We will fight it out on this line if it takes all winter, but we know it has to be done. Montana? Looks like a win as I write. Read more about My. Fucking. Internet. Went. Down. At 8 p.m.

Bi-partisanship is a synonym for date rape

Just saying ...

Not that there's anything wrong with that, since the Republicans, even though nobody in their right mind would want to date them, do need to be raped.

NOTE Just an offensive metaphor, people! Read more about Bi-partisanship is a synonym for date rape

It ain't all popcorn ...


But it is a damn fine start, boys and girls. Lambert did a fine job pitching that half-magnum through the skylight; over here in my stairwell, the draft is drawing enticing aromas of champagne and real buttered popcorn through the air. Read more about It ain't all popcorn ...

Over the Hedge - fund that is.

Another good catch from S&M . With the looming invasion of Iran the markets are going to be devastating to the genral public.

Hedge funds can arrest the development of whole economies, and they have the potential to crash the financial system. It has almost happened before. In 1998 the Fed persuaded the "Fourteen Families" (an apposite Mafia reference) of Wall Street - the major banks - to cough up money for a $3.6bn bailout for Long-Term Capital Management, a hedge fund whose bets went wrong. The Fed said at the time that LTCM's failure had been abrupt and disorderly and had posed "unacceptable risks to the American economy".

To the Fighters


Ok, so I'm a tad nervous this morning. Coffee probably wasn't a good idea this morning, but it's going to be a busy day. I'll be at several election parties tonight, and running around between blogging today, and chewing on my fingernails. But I wanted to say:

Thank you, Fremen warriors. And: I'm sorry for being such a Bitch.

Long Live the Fighters! Read more about To the Fighters
