Open your eyes to The Nation

The Nation is hosting pictures from Sunday’s march here. Check it out. Additionally, there are links to a write-up about the Billionaires for Bush march, excerpted here: Billionaired for Bush is basically a one-joke movement, but the joke’s a good one and the movement has added some much-appreciated agit-prop hilarity to the goings-on in the […]

I Made This…

By request from Eponymous. Feel free to spread it around.

Well, Garrison Keiller- Who woulda thunk it?

The Public Radio Twain, the bard of Lake Woebegone, chimes in with his take on the state of the Republican Party, and not surprisingly, it’s funny: The Nixon moderate vanished like the passenger pigeon, purged by a legion of angry white men who rose to power on pure punk politics. “Bipartisanship is another term of […]

Today is Veterans’ Day at Yelladog

This was in the Daily Media Report that goes out to people that work for the Marine Corps. I have family the work at Quantico, and was lucky enough to get this in an email today. It’s a hell of a story. France gives a U.S. Marine a top honor John Bodnar, who trained the […]

I think I’m Pissed

Well, my initial reaction to the whole Purple Heart BandAid thing was kind of “Yawn. More demagoguery from the Republicans… NEXT!” But the more I think about it, the more it really winds my stem… Because of fat, smug morons like this: Reported on MSNBC earlier today: MSNBC Correspondent Chip Reed: What is that on […]

Purple Heart Bandaids?

I don’t know what’s more disgusting about this whole flap- the facts themselves, the fact that we missed the opportunity to have delegates run around at the DNC with those little bibs that one wears at the dentist’s office, or the creator of the campaign’s Neo-Nazi credentials: Blackwell has also trained rightist political forces in […]

Jane Dark is Blogging the RNC

She’s using not one, but two pseudonyms… Go figure… But there’s no mistaking her gimlet summations. John McCainís charm, aside from his arid and serpentine persistence, is that though he is a nerd and a warrior, he still seems to recall some basic lessons of cool. Foremost among them is that, if you are parsimonious […]

This is what happens….

when you fuck with people that are smarter that you. Over the weekend, the right wing guys that were threatening to show up at peaceful protests and raise hell, the “Protest Warriors,” got their database hacked. I would normally never link to the “Free” Republic (where you can get banned so fast it’ll make your […]

Marathon Man

I just now heard about this guy: A defrocked Irish priest with a history of disrupting sports events was given a one-year suspended sentence and fined $3,600 Monday for grabbing a runner who was leading the Olympic marathon with three miles to go. Argh! Kill! Kill! I have run three marathons in the past three […]

Nuts… But Very Clean… and Minty, too!

I just dropped a Dr. Bronner’s reference in the comments section of another weblog in response to a truly incomprehensible commenter. (If you’ve never stood in the shower and read the label on a bottle of Dr. Bronner’s soap, then you’ve missed one of the truly strange morning experiences.) Just out of curiosity, I googled […]
