Where things will go your way...or they won't

All he talked about last night was war, the economy, immigration, abortion, taxes, gun control, conservation, government regulation, education, foreign policy, and energy policy. But that was all just RHETORIC. Folks down here don’t care to hear all that lofty talk. We’re real Americans. We need to hear SUBSTANCE!
For instance, he barely talked about trade last night. I had hoped he would devote at least 70 minutes to talking about trade. And he didn’t spend 35 minutes talking about property levies, like I wanted. And how come he didn’t say NOTHIN’ about the garbage cans that have been sittin’ in Mrs. Furlong’s yard for HIGH ON THREE WEEKS NOW? The whole neighborhood was up in arms about that! How could he neglect to even MENTION it? Sounds like someone isn’t really tuned in to what the American people need to hear!
And he didn’t say SHIT about how Jake Delhomme’s elbow is doin’. I wonder… does he even care?

What do you want voters to know coming out of the Republican Convention — about you, about your candidacy?
I'm prepared to be President of the United States, and I'll put my country first.
There's a theme that recurs in your books and your speeches, both about putting country first but also about honor. I wonder if you could define honor for us?
Read it in my books.
I've read your books.
No, I'm not going to define it.
But honor in politics?
I defined it in five books. Read my books.
Maybe he should have had them ask his staff?

Look, I owe the American people an apology. If I had beaten the old man you’d of never heard of the kid and you wouldn’t be in this mess. So it’s all my fault and I feel that very, very strongly.
Well there are some lines that can't be crossed
And sometimes those lines get lost
Cracker- Duty Free
Which leads to the inevitable and impenetrable defense, "I'm just a guy tryin' to get through the world..." Which seems kinda lame nowadays. I don't really have much to say about it which is why I don't write posts about me, but whatev.

It really is a mystery how the corporate journalist are able to sleep at night. They spent eight years perpetuating shrub's lies, and are prepared to do the same for mcsame. Liberal media indeed.
More hatin' on the olympics.
10 reasons to hate the olympics.
Update: Of course the only thing more boring than the olympics is political conventions. The democratic convention starts tonight in Denver. Uhg!
The McCain campaign keeps emphasizing that McCain was a prisoner in Vietnam, as proof of his qualification for the Presidency.
Well, so was Gary Glitter, and I'm not voting for him either.

This* is the kind of stuff he needs to be doing.
*i'm not sure where this was said. The conservative blogger I linked to has to links to articles that do not have the quotes so it possible it is not authentic.
This has to hurt.
Yes, Mr. Goldfarb, I play Dungeons and Dragons. And I have, in my home, a very large box filled with medals and decorations that prove my service to this nation. Where were you, sir, when your country called? Oh yes, writing for the Weekly Standard.While gaming geeks rallied around the flag.
I think that Matt and Max miss the larger point here. The key to this sort of attitude is to instill fear. If mcsame claims that everytime a fly farts that it is the greatest. threat. to. our. future.EVER. Then people will turn to him to save them from the great insect gas menace.
To reasonable people this might seem odd, but in america if you want things done you sell fear. More than any other form of marketing, fear is the weapon of both 21st corporations and politicians.
That is the point of the mcsame's hysteria.

maybe someone who has adult role models like these people.
A united front of young male athletes gave testimonials for their baseball coaches, and was saluted with long rounds of applause.Yes sir, you have definitly nailed the problem. Its the media's fault. Not you and your twisted ass kids. I guess the moral to the story is be glad you don't live in small town amerikkka.
The alleged victims were rarely mentioned.
"The media took this and ran with it," one man said. "They took sex, violence and victims. They took an incident and turned it into assault. We made national news because of this.
"I'm angry, and I'd be willing to bet … I would be willing to bet most of the people in this room are angry. And I would be willing to bet some of them would like to take some of these reporters to the back of the bus."

If I were tickled by the rub of love,
A rooking girl who stole me for her side,
Broke through her straws, breaking my bandaged string,
If the red tickle as the cattle calve
Still set to scratch a laughter from my lung,
I would not fear the apple nor the flood
Nor the bad blood of spring.
Shall it be male or female? say the cells,
And drop the plum like fire from the flesh.
If I were tickled by the hatching hair,
The winging bone that sprouted in the heels,
The itch of man upon the baby's thigh,
I would not fear the gallows nor the axe
Nor the crossed sticks of war.
Shall it be male or female? say the fingers
That chalk the walls with green girls and their men.
I would not fear the muscling-in of love
If I were tickled by the urchin hungers
Rehearsing heat upon a raw-edged nerve.
I would not fear the devil in the loin
Nor the outspoken grave.
If I were tickled by the lovers' rub
That wipes away nor crow's-foot nor the lock
Of sick old manhood on the fallen jaws,
Time and the crabs and the sweethearting crib
Would leave me cold as butter for the flies,
The sea of scums could drown me as it broke
Dead on the sweethearts' toes.
This world is half the devil's and my own,
Daft with the drug that's smoking in a girl
And curling round the bud that forks her eye.
An old man's shank one-marrowed with my bone,
And all the herrings smelling in the sea,
I sit and watch the worm beneath my nail
Wearing the quick away.
And that's the rub, the only rub that tickles.
The knobbly ape that swings along his sex
From damp love-darkness and the nurse's twist
Can never raise the midnight of a chuckle,
Nor when he finds a beauty in the breast
Of lover, mother, lovers, or his six
Feet in the rubbing dust.
And what's the rub? Death's feather on the nerve?
Your mouth, my love, the thistle in the kiss?
My Jack of Christ, born thorny on the tree?
The words of death are dryer than his stiff,
My wordy wounds are printed with your hair.
I would be tickled by the rub that is:
Man be my metaphor.
BMF puts it best, "Don’t Sleep on Fernando Tatis! He’s on a Mission from God and he Cannot be Stopped!!!"
Watched the game with HaHa while she watched the Sox. Both games were blowouts. and I didn't cheer for the Red Sox. Things are back to normal? Probably not.

HC holds no grudge against me.(For once.)
Russia is done spanking Georgia.
Bernie Mac still dead.
Isaac Hates still dead.
"Rather, even in the absence of a “tough” American response, Putin has stuck to relatively moderate goals because it’s not actually true that the “lessons of Munich” are applicable to every single event in the world. Occupying Georgia would be more trouble than it’s worth, so it’s not going to happen, and Russia won’t attack Ukraine either. The past week’s events have been terrible for Georgians, but not world-historical in their significance."
Neocons wrong again.

Shorter Ygelsias: Bill Kristol is a warmongering nutjob with no ideas.
It started out innocently enough. I met HAHA to watch the Mets and Red Sox games and Thumbs and Hate were there before heading to see the Bees game. Thumbs invited us to go and I was sure that'll be cool. And it was. (Mets lost, Sox lost, Bees won, if you're keeping score.)
After the game we return to the 7eo and consume refreshing beverages. Eventually Cheesesteak and Irish show up as well as Notrammer and HC. A good time was had by all. Eventually Thumbs and Hate leave as does HAHA.
Just before i am about to leave. HAHA calls and apparently Hate looked at Thumbs phone and seen that HAHA had texted and lost her mind. As HAHA is telling me this my phone rings and its Thumbs, except it is really Hate telling me to keep my slut friend away from Thumbs. To which, I respond,"Its not like that, and even if it was you are mad at the wrong person." Click.
So that was fun.
Because I am a rtard, I tell HC the her roomate Rammer would kick her out if Notrammer didn't live there. Excellent plan Chancelot.
At anyrate, I have no idea what the longterm fall out will be but the drama is getting ridiculous.
In news that you have already heard about:
WAR! Russia vs. Georgia
Bernie Mac Dead.
Update: Also going to Bees game without inviting The Subtle Self made her mad. So I'm killin it right now.

Swedish rock groups also extol his virtues.
He is Superman, at least for the Mets. His second home run last night was teh awesome.(This is not that home run.)
Here is his post game reaction on SNY.
Sullivan beats me to the punch.
"Derb defines it as "a white person who is excessively deferential towards black people." Since Derb refuses to live near any, I guess he's in the clear."

If you are angry at entire group of people for no good reason except somehow you have been victimized by the least powerful group in the country you are a whiner. If you go on about affirmative action ruining your life and welfare queens taking your money you are a racist. You might not be prejudiced but you are a racist. This resentment of whites is the same resentment that fed one hundred years of segregation and terrorist actions perpetrated against blacks throughout the twentieth century.

It is hilarious that a party that is almost entirely based on a cult of personality is calling Obama vapid and clueless. Do these people and their ilk have any intellectual honesty at all. They claim that Obama lacks experience and know how while pushing a guy who lies and promises to do nothing to solve our problems. Well, I guess I will just assume republicans are r-tards until proven otherwise.
ed. Sorry, about linking to the corner, your precipitous IQ drop will return to normal after leaving the site and viewing this video.
Update: I guess when this is your base being stupid isn't that harmful.
Alexander Solzhenitsyn has died. I didn't actually know that much about him but he was clearly influential and important man who had an interesting life.
p.s. I have read One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich.
