Seattle Pillow Fight!

I have to say, YouTube isn't impressing me with video quality. The only advantage in my book is being able to embed video like that. Click here to open the source video on my Mac hosting account. It looks light years better and does the 16:9 ratio properly.

In any case, the pillow fight was cool. I love Seattle.

A Nation of Pussies, Vol. 70

For those playing along at home, this week has had some mighty thin-skinned sissified bullshit news. I really shouldn't use the term "pussies" come to think of it, because really- who doesn't like pussy (the vagina, not the feline)? No, I'm talking about the delicate/fragile people that can't take the heat but refuse to leave the kitchen.

Sissy Bullshitter #1

James Carville is certainly passive-aggressive, but is more the root cause of sissified bullshit, than he is the subject. Bill Richardson endorsed Obama this week, and that made the baby Jesus cry. Or Hillary. Whatever. Richardson is sporting a Van Dyke goatee these days, so he must be "evil" I guess. Carville goes on telly and makes some ham-handed jab about the timing of the endorsement being ironic as it's reminiscent of Judas Iscariot selling out Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. Really? That's the best he's got? Well in any event, the sissified media types got all misty and hurt and have prattled on about it since. If by chance any Dem strategists in the Obama camp read this, here is the correct rebuttal: "It's sad to see that Hillary's own Joseph Goebbels can't seem to muster his "A" game anymore."

Sissy Bullshitter #2

Chelsea Clinton was asked if her dad's shit with Miss Blue Dress (and presumably Hillary's decision to keep him) was a liability on the campaign (or words to that effect). She got indignant and said it was off limits. Off limits? What the fuck is that? Had it not happened WITH AN INTERN IN THE OVAL FUCKING OFFICE, it might've been off limits... Give me a break, horseface. You can't parade around campaigning and expect the kid-glove treatment. Either: a.) Say you were not privy to the situation, as you are merely the daughter, and they should ask a participant. b.) Say yes/no or I hope yes/no - whatever your opinion is. c.) Say "I don't know". or d.) Stay off the campaign trail and enjoy your trust fund. And I'm sorry for calling her "horseface". We all have our crosses to bear.

Sissy Bullshitter #3

Neil Cavuto had a guest on his show who implied that Fox News had a right leaning bias. Neil got his fluffy panties in a knot and got all jingoistic with the "fair and balanced" claptrap. It's okay Neil, everyone with a pulse knows that Fox is "in" with the GOP and this current administration. You don't have to keep denying it anymore. Limbaugh doesn't feel the need to keep up any such pretenses- you'll be okay. You keep saying you don't have a GOP problem- that you can quit any time you want. The fist step is admitting you have a problem, you big Jessie.

Sissy Bullshitter #4

This one pains me, because I love this guy. Seriously- it's "bromance". Mike Gravel- the only candidate I would vote FOR (all other choices being lesser of some evil), has decided to leave the Democratic Party (about fucking time) to go to the... wait for it... Libertarian Party! Say it ain't so, Mike! Ooof! Mike has been effectively cock-blocked by the media at every turn. He's a wicked-serious threat should he ever get traction, but that's not going to happen in this plutocratic oligarchy. No chance. So instead of bowing out, he's changing horses- but to the wrong fucking horse. The Libertarians HAVE a candidate with more money and influence already- well a de facto candidate anyway (he still claims to be a Republican)- Ron Paul. No way Mike can make a dent there- they are ideologically light years from his world view. He meant to go to the Green Party, but apparently got lost along the way.

There were surely more than these, but these are the ones that caught my eye/ire.

UPDATE: He can be as full of shit as a Christmas Goose, but I also love Christopher Hitchens. Until the day that he drinks himself to death, we can all enjoy his work, like this

I've Been Meaning To Mention This...

I've been putting pictures and now movies online at The most recent is a movie called "Sal, The Retarded Dog" and this might explain why:

1.) The dog water bowl is always empty
2.) The kitchen floor is always wet
3.) People don't come visit all that often...

As the old page of family photos is still online, I'll add a link to the new page in my link list.

The Gilligan Theorum

There is a theory that all men can be divided into the "Ginger" types, or the "Mary Ann" types. I've never understood why both wasn't an option, but if forced to choose, I'd have to go with Mary Ann- now more than ever. Observe:

Dawn Wells, age 69- busted for pot (click image for story)

That's just fucking awesome. Plus, look at her- DAMN! She a biscuit from 70 and still looks pretty good. You think Tina Louise is looking anywhere near that good? What the hell is she doing in Idaho?

So Whatcha Whatcha Whatcha Want?

Clinton wins 3 of 4 yesterday, because she's "experienced"? Overlooking the fact that I'd like my heart surgeon to perform my surgeries, as opposed to his "experienced" wife, let me do a quick reality check on the Clinton dynasty.

1> Signed NAFTA. Fucked a lot of unskilled laborers out of a living.

2> Signed Graham-Leach-Bliley, thus repealing the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 (that'd be Depression Era, for us public victims students). If you want to know how this whole sub-prime mortgage thing began, it began with Billy Clinton spinelessly removing the protection that kept commercial banks out of the stock market. That's experience, eh?

3> Bankruptcy reform. Hilly signed it. Bankruptcies are up 28% since last year, and these people are no longer usually able to discharge their debts. We're this close to debtors prisons, and come to think of it, maybe that's what all these mysterious penal facilities under construction are meant to be?

We have a serious cancer in this country and it's idiocy mixed with ignorance. I expected nothing from Texas- those people are fucking nuts, and more than a little bit racist, but I really expected more from Ohio. I'm ready to vote for Sybil McCain at this point just to accelerate our cultural flame-out. War is peace! Freedom is slavery! Ignorance is bliss! And oh yeah- Arbeit Macht Frei.
