Jackson Browne- these days

FF draft

I'm having my draft on tuesday. If anyone is interested give me a shout out and I will get you details. Oh yes its almost my favorite time of year.

outside the box

KSK goes outside the sports realm and brings the funny to politics. These guys should start a political blog. Check out their take on Obama's speech.

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?


Ya' gotta believe!

BMF says it all.

thursday night music

dead boys- ain't it fun

let's plan our vacation to baghdad

It's true. mcsame has declared Iraq "peaceful and stable." And we all know that former pows can't be wrong or ever misjudge a situation. Lord mcsame has made his pronouncement, which also means the troops are coming home? I know the pinkos will be out in force screaming, ignore them and look at the facts.

August 9: A suicide car bomb in Tal Afar killed at least 25 people.

August 24: A suicide bomber killed 25 people, including women and children, in Baghdad’s Abu Ghraib district.

August 27: A suicide bomber killed 28 and wounded 45 in Iraq’s Diyala province.

i'm me

Michael Phelps on the Dan Patrick Show said that he listened to this song before swimming in Beijing. It is the ringer on my phone. Haha!

honor what honor?

mcsame can't define honor. That's rich. This fucking guy is unbelievable. You have to read it to believe it.
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?

all chuck's children...

I was listening to the radio and heard this...

Sometimes I miss aor radio format.

John Doe- fourth of july

at least we know who to blame

Michael Dukakis takes responsibility for the shrub.

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.

the history of home runs

249,675 home runs have been hit since 1876.

I'm just a guy...

So I have gone, in one week, from haha, hc, and gk loving me to not really talking to me. The weirdness being that I have not done anything different.

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.

mcsame lies and media acts as accomplice

TPM has it here.

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.

Update: Of course the only thing more boring than the olympics is political conventions. The democratic convention starts tonight in Denver. Uhg!

bringing the snark

Roger Ailes does it.

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.

things i didn't know about mcsame

He was a POW! Really, and that makes him being obscenely rich ok. The republic party has apparently forgotten even the most basic debating skills. But that is ok because as Ezra says they have the most powerful argument ever. "A noun, a verb, a POW!"

Because you know like getting shot down is awesome.

obama should watch this

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.


A LT. Colonel(ret) responds to mcsame's blogger.

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.

the politics of fear

Here is a good explanation of mcsame's crackpot foreign policy views. Matt Yglesias points out mcsame's response to everything makes chicken little look rational.

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.

not so deep thought

I am against semi-colons. Not because I think they're gay, but because, like god or teevee weathermen, they are essentially useless.

monday night music: gin and juice version

The gourds- gin and juice

America is teh awesome

This story is fucked up. I love sports but our society seems to make all kinds of allowances for this sort of hazing. What kind of kid thinks its cool to shove a cell phone up some ones ass.

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.

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."

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.

Fake news viewers unite

The Daily Show and Colbert viewers are better informed than average cable news viewers. I'm Shocked!

this is the way the fucking world is

I suppose seeing this movie when I was 5 years old might have scarred me. The point remains, you either love somebody or you hate them.

Thursday Night Music: HAHA edition

Kim Carnes- Bette Davis Eyes


If I were tickled by the rub of love

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.

Dylan Thomas

Mets back in first

The Mets are in first place in the NL East. Thanks to who? FERNANDO!!!1!

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.

Not much going on today. I'm gonna go enjoy the sunshine.

McSame says: “in the 21st century, nations don’t invade other nations.”

Thats all I have to say about that. Really... I'm dumbfuddled.

dirty little secret

I was watching the Red Sox game and Youkilis hit the game winner AND I CHEERED. If you know me at all you will find this disturbing, as do I. It goes to show that even the most pure hatred, that which I have for all things Boston, can be corrupted by lust. I am so fubar.

Tuesday Night Music

Patti Smith-Gloria

Chaos, drama, death ctd.

The rest of the story is that apparently Hate took me serious when i said she was mad at the wrong person. Thumbs now has two black eyes and a fat lip. obviously this is a sensitive issue but HAHA and I have been laughing for like an hour. Not. Nice. People.

HC holds no grudge against me.(For once.)

Russia is done spanking Georgia.

Bernie Mac still dead.

Isaac Hates still dead.

its always Munich its alway 1938 ctd.

Yglesias says, not so much.

"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.

Yglesias is back.

Matt Yglesias has returned with his new blog. Read him everyday if you can.

Chaos, drama and death

I caused plenty of chaos at the 7eo this weekend. Well, I didn't cause it all, but aided and abetted perhaps.

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.

Isaac Hayes.

Update: Also going to Bees game without inviting The Subtle Self made her mad. So I'm killin it right now.

I guess this post would probably make that true. But at least they aren't playing the race card.

This article is a must read if you want to understand wingnuts.

Hearts and Minds: We can has them?

I bet these flaming r-tards are from the south.

Yes, you are a racist..ummkay

Shorter Publius: White southerners aren't racist they're just upset because their feel bads hurt really, really bad.

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.

Repulicans are stoopid liars Part one

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.
