The Democratic voters of Michigan and Florida are unhappy, or so we read. They, or if you will, their representatives, moved up their primary dates and drew a punishment from the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee. Since then, what have the voters of Michigan and Florida actually done to try and reverse or repair their problem? Nothing but complain. Read below the fold...
Orrin Hatch has written a song for McCain. It's shallow and vapid, you can read the lyrics and barf here. But what's really priceless is Tweety's reaction after playing a snippet on Hardball:
I will be singing it on the pillow tonight.
I bet he will.
Obama may send a thrill up their legs (although that's more about beating Clinton), but at night it's McCain they dream about.

Just peeping in here before hitting the beds (I'm helping out an elderly neighbor today with his yard) to say that it's almost over. Soon the Village will be making up shit about some other laughable aspect of our kleptocracy, and we won't all be shouting at each other anymore. I hope. Anyway, see you soon. And get outside, durnit! In these parts the sun is a-shinin' and I'd be a fool not to be in it. Read below the fold...
Fauxgressive Randi Rhodes has resigned from Air America radio.
A source at Air America, who asked to remain anonymous, said,
"Randi Rhodes refused to apologize for her obscene comments and has chosen instead to terminate her relationship with Air America."
Now she decides to have principles.
Randi needs to learn that the right to say something doesn't make what you say right. Read below the fold...
Can someone explain this to me?
According to Tweety & the Gang, it's no big deal for David Bellavia to compare Barack Obama to Tiger Woods, because Tiger is a great golfer.
But when Bill Clinton compared Barack Obama's win in South Carolina to the earlier victories in South Carolina by Jesse Jackson, it was vile racism. Read below the fold...
The New York Times and the GOS Hardy Boys are on the case, proving . . . something.
Hillary has been telling a story about an anonymous pregnant woman in Ohio who died (along with her child) because she couldn't afford healthcare. The alleged hospital, previously anonymous, came forward to deny liability and to breach patient confidentiality.
I'm 48 years old. I was born when Eisenhower was still President.
The kids today have no idea what I've seen.
One of my earliest memories was JFK's assassination. I was three, and I remember I couldn't understand why if JFK was dead (gone to Heaven) he was still on television.
I remember Vietnam and the turbulence of the Sixties from nightly television, but not from daily life. I saw riots on television, but I never attended one.
I remember getting up for school one morning and my mom telling me that Martin Luther King had been killed. I kind of understood who he was and knew it was significant.
Two months later I woke up to find out Bobby Kennedy had been murdered too. Five years, three leaders murdered. Read below the fold...
On Sunday, Donna Brazile took to the airwaves to explain the Credentials Committee of the DNC and why Obama will control the Credentials Committee. Unfortunately, almost everything Ms. Brazile said was wrong (is she a lying shill or simply uninformed, you decide). After learning Ms. Brazile was wrong, I decided to try to figure this Credentials Committee thing out myself. I mean, how hard can it be? Read below the fold...
Elizabeth Drew is a sad testament to the fact that even the NYRB has succumbed to the Clinton Rules (check out the image of HRC devilishly laughing on their front page). The article is a mixture of projection, lies, and just plain asshatery. I could only shake my head as I read the following: Read below the fold...
with this post right here.
It's really getting pretty damned sad now.
And I'm someone who would be happy with either candidate as nominee -- but this is just a sad thing to see Josh self-immolate himself like this.
And wouldn't it be nice if Josh would hire himself an editor? The various errors in his posts are a bit annoying from a "professional" blogger. You'd think if you just wrote 5-6 paragraphs per day you could, um, you know, proofread them? Read below the fold...
