Blogroll Addition

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Excuse me.

Ah, hey.... EXCUSE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for your attention. I have an announcement: I am leaving. Good by.......

Oh, wait. Sorry. That is from a movie.

Actually. I have a new addition to my blogroll. Charles P. Pierce who now blogs at Esquire. I have listened to "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me" on occasion. But it is nice to see him on a forum where the decorum allows him to be a little less restrained. That, and he agrees with me about the Jacob Weisberg assault on Ron Suskind.

First of all, a tip of the old hat to BBWW for the lead to Mr. Pierce's blog, and secondly, congratulations to BBWW for making the blogroll there.

For that, Mustang Bobby, I hate you.

What Makes Him So Important?

I want to know, because I have yet to understand why people read his columns. What makes David Brooks so damn important that what he has to say needs to be listened to? Did he accomplish some great feat that set our country back on the road to greatness? Did he learn to turn lead into gold? Did he fly all by himself to the moon and back? Honest to Flying Spaghetti Monster, what in hell did he ever accomplish that we should trust his word on anything?

Mind you, I am not saying he is not important. Obviously he has some impact on the national dialog. He gets to do his conservative punditry spin on NPR and other outlets. I just do not see how he was able to gain such a position. From what I have read of him on occasion over the years, he seemed to be on the wrong side of history.

No, Not Restraint.

Oh, for crying out loud. Once again the New York Times shows it has hired wanna be mind readers instead of journalists.

(NYT) BEIRUT, Lebanon -- Thousands of Syrians took to the streets again on Friday in virtually every region of the country, but in some locales, Syrian security forces showed restraint in not firing on the demonstrations in a possible bid to keep down a death toll that has brought growing international pressure and strained relations with Syria's few allies.
How about, instead of attempting to read the mind of people half a world away, they instead go by recent middle east history and recognize that the Syrian leadership is losing the support of the security forces. But no, that would be showing bias. Best to make it appear the Syrian leadership is not losing control of the country. We couldn't have that now, could we?

Maroons.

Driving Mr. Rush

Just remember: driving and Oxycontin don't mix.

Ouch! That had to leave a mark. If nothing else, Rush's nose has got to be bleeding, because that was one hell of a right cross.

Oh, remind me to never, ever cross Todd Lassa.

Who The Hell Wrote This?

Whisper

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
While the Republican/Conservative movement has relied mostly on the megaphone style of political persuasion, I see the Whisper Campaign as a more effective style of political persuasion for the Democrats/Progressives. Let the Republicans blast away with the few megaphone mouths (Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, et. el.). The Democrats can simply walk softly and whisper quietly to individuals among the masses. You know, do the grassroots thing.

Granted, the Teabagger's movement was a type of grassroots in that the corporate/conservative elites were able to tap the anger of the intellectually ignorant; feeding them misinformation and out right lies. But it only created a squeaking wheel. It did not constitute any huge majority, or even a respectable minority. Instead, it brought together a whole bunch of crazy, that left a poor impression on the general population.

From what I can see, the Republican/Conservative grassroots movements have been an abysmal failure, easily falling short of fund raising as accomplished by comparable progressive movements. And in what is no doubt the greatest irony of all; the Republican/Conservative grassroots rely on funding from individuals comparable to their rich, liberal, villain De jour, George Soros, the man supposedly funding the entire progressive infrastructure.

I just can't help but see the Republican/conservative elites losing power. Not when their efforts include the manipulation of ignorant, intellectually lazy people. Contrary to popular belief, the majority of the human race is not ignorant. If it was, we would still be Neanderthals living a stone age existence.

Sigh. Yes, I understand Rush, Hannity, and Beck might exemplify the modern Neanderthals, but they really are still a minority.

Poor Twitty

Let me just go on record that for Chris Matthews to say he forgot the President is black actually speaks well for him. I mean, for crying out loud, Matthews is as close to albino as a man can get without actually being albino. As an icon of white, male privilege, you can not get any closer than Matthews. So, to hear him say he forgot President Obama was black somehow speaks volumes about the overall social shift occurring in our country. And, as inarticulate as he was at that moment, he appeared to not mean it in a negative, or derogatory manner.



Just re-listened to this; he forgot for a whole hour! Wow, that is just phenomenal. Honestly, you just can not get any whiter than Chris Matthews.

Blah

Once again the world is aflame with much to do about nothing except gossip, gossip, gossip. Then there are the totally disgusting words used by a conservative. Oh wait. Which used disgusting words, and which is conservative?

Basically a whole lot of noise that signifies the total lack of focus currently occurring with the Village Idiots.

Rule Of Law,

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Senator Al Franken following the Rule Of Law, once a favorite topic of conservative Republicans.



Granted, they are parliamentary rules. Still, rules are rules.

Also of note; this is making the Legacy Media pages. Senator Franken is making a name for himself.

Good on ya, Matthews:



Anyone expect this level of humility from any of the Fox News commentators? If you do, hold your breath. It will clean out the gene pool.

The First Of A Trend?

With the Washington Times bleeding worse than a cut forehead, I can not help but wonder if this is the start of a trend. Are purely partisan propaganda print-shops going the way of the Dodo?
