Because She Said So, Why?

February 2, 2008

   I’ve long explored on the fantasy level a menage a trois with Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham.  Not because I find them to be particularly exciting sexually, rather because damn the conversation would be fun afterwords.  I’m a fan of both though I generally don’t agree totally with either.  In fact, on several issues we are diametrically opposed.

On this though, there can be no doubt.  The woman is spot on.  When she proclaims John McCain to stupid to know he’s been caught lying I get just a little weepy.  It’s nice when someone agrees with you.  Even if you don’t always agree with them.  this is really quite fun….have a look

let’s schmooze the news

July 31, 2007

Haven’t done this in a week or so.  I’ve been to busy writing about inane crap to contemplate writing about the truly banal baloney…

well the iraqi parliament is leaving on their August hiatus.   Like our congress, their vacation is far more important to them than their people are.  What I really like is the almost afterthought at the bottom.

So much for honor amongst thieves.  Michael Vicks co-conspirator is singing like a canary.  It looks bad for Michael, but we shouldn’t rush to judgement.  We should casually walk to it, as casually as he abused these dogs.

The Elect Billary campaign is insulted by the fashion article about ms. hillary’s cleavage.  Like its a bad thing.  Trust me hillary, you want me looking at your breasts and not listening to your words. Oh who am i kidding…I’m a nancy’s jugs guy anyway.  Hillary couldn’t get my vote if she did a cirque du soleil act naked with the swedish bikini team.

There is a wind blowing in from Iowa, and it’s going to save us all.  Smells like asswind to me, but if the DOW hits 17,000 like they suggest they need to turn their attention to a problem with global ramifications…roscoe’s attitude.

your asshole is on my facebook.  Just go read it.  sexual predators are to easy a target, and I’m not in the mood for ez.

Well grease me up with butter and beat me with a horsewhip…a feel good news story on criminyjickets.  This one just made me smile.  No clues for you.  duh, look at the link before you go if you’re that curious.

I bet it doesn’t pass, but here’s another honest government bill.  The only thing I don’t like is it doesn’t say the lawmakers name will be publicized with his earmark, and I think that would be a deterrant.  It does make it tougher to keep an unrelated earmark in a bill though.

You go Rosie.  I still think you’re a pig, but this was class all the way.

HoBama?  I like it.  Their little fued is going to distance them from the rest of the candidates, and just a coupleweeks after I said they would be the ticket for the dems, Newt Gingrich agreed.  We should maybe do the butter/horsewhip thing again here.

ok, that doesn’t even scratch the surface, but I’m hiking slagcaster moulds up steps tomorrow, and I wish to go lie down and hate the idea of that for awhile.  I didn’t mention the depths of human depravity stories I found.  Lots of murder and death today.   lot of  dead children.  Sorta ruins the mood.


the harry potter quiz

July 30, 2007

  I usually get all my quizzes at Max’s (points to blogroll).  Unfortunately this usually entails finding out which hot babe I am on some chick show, and it tends to make me question my masculinity. Further, she has no Harry Potter quiz(don’t say it, I know), so i had to go scrounge.  I’ve seen the movies, I’ve read the books, and while it was a horrendous risk taking this (if I found out I was that little wanker Harry I would of joined a Star Trek Association), it turned out OK.  I’m the everlovable scruffy as hell ex-con Sirius Black.  My daughter will be so pleased.  The only way this could’ve turned out better in her eyes is if i had been a dementer.

anyway, here’s a link, go be a bigger geek than I.

Just shut up…I know you can read

July 5, 2007

Has it really escaped you folks that Kieth Olbermann, Neil Cavuto, Bill O’reilly,  Lou Dobbs,  Sean Hannity and all the others like them are just reading?  Thats what they do.  You can idolize them all you want, but your time would be better spent cheering on a 7 year old that is having trouble with this endeavor.  these people don’t write what they say.  they just read it.  I’ll grant that this helps employ several undertalented individuals that would be out of work if not for each little demagogues 1 hour a day of scatalogical vitriol, but other than that their contribution to society is an ability to read.

    Of course for the millions of people that can’t think for themselves, that oversimplify every issue in the exact same way that the major news organizations do, these pontificators are the true leaders of our nation.  They are the ones who determine what will be on the agenda.  Lou Dobbs singlehandedly managed to keep the illegal immigration issue front and center day after day on CNN.  You may think ths is ok, but harken back to my original premise.  His only real ability is to read.  He should shape our social agenda?  Kieth Olbermann went on a rant against “24.”  A fictional show that involves some fairly controversial issues, but none the less a fiction show.  Thats the equivalent of you screaming at Homer Simpson.  Yet this man is in the vanguard of the legions that consider the commuting of Scooter Libby’s sentence to be a travesty of justice.  Again, this is ok, but it leaves out the fact that commuting sentences and even pardoning convicted federal felons is the purview of the president, and is nothing more nor less than use of executive privilege.  It’s a minor issue at best, and certainly not one to divert attention from all the major issues facing our nation.  Fortunately, we have that well known dramatic prose reader Kieth to sway the masses off a sensible course.

    Sean Hannity, that paragon of enunciating virtue had built a veritable empire as a result of his ability to avoid the dangling participle.  Even his look screams cookie cutter conservative wonk.  When he reads though people stop and listen.  They then wander out amongst the unaware, and repeat whatever pathological right wing fringe allegation that Sean has whispered in there ear.  He’s not an expert on anything.  He has the same basic knowledge of human events as anyone else has.  The difference is he puts on a suit, has a makeup girl, and reads with a snide little “I’m smarter than you” look on his face.  This may be so, but he is still just reading for a living.

   Think.  Immigration reform, social security and medicare, the war on terror and islamic fundamentalism, are all extremely complex issues.  You could spend years studying economics and still not be able to get this country on a good economic track, yet you so willingly give up your autonomy in the free thought department to people who have never proven to be anything.   Well, they’ve proven they can read.  Outwit them.  Think


citizen Kane is #1….again

June 21, 2007

    ah yes….AFI has released their top 100 again.  I usually don’t pay much attention to entertainment news.  this piqued my interest because….well…they just aren’t.  I’ve seen maybe 75 of them, and while they are certainly decent movies, they aren’t the best 100.  It’s quite possible the reason for this is the people that voted for these are filmmakers, actors, writers, producers, and so on.  People proven to know very little about what is and is not a good movie.

here they are though.  I can think of 20 or so I would have on here.  I’d have to include Boondock Saints just to send D> peace into a tailspin.  Oh, I’m not gonna.  Quit panicking. My opinion is like everyone elses.  I did put the list here.  If you see anything missing let me know and I’ll compile a readers top 100.  If anyone says hostel I’m gonna figure out how to block you from my blog.
