Picture time!

OK, first off we’re going to do a little before and after. Here is a picture of my garden from last May: And more recently: a shot from the side from last May: and this week: Also, here’s a shot of my wife and my nieces from when they were up here last week: and […]

Not WATER! Falling from the SKY!??! Get the President into the bunker!

And fuck those scouts. Who cares? The Fixer breaks it down: BOWLING GREEN, Va. — The Boy Scouts marched onto the field singing, plopping down in the grass to wait for President Bush. But hours later, the news that Bush couldn’t make it was drowned out by sirens and shouts as hundreds fell ill because […]

We loot our own empire in our spare time

Billmon takes a hard look at the voting on CAFTA. Oh, and it’s so ugly… The thing that really alarms me about all this is the utter brazeness with which the loot is being divvied up now. The Dixiepublicans are acting as if there is simply no chance they will ever be held accountable for […]

“Morans” are us….

I am cruising around in my grandfather’s ’93 Crown Vic this week. It’s got like 34k miles on it. The air conditioning is an arctic wind that leaves my fingertips numb after ten minutes. It rides like a velvet hovercraft. Last week it was my folk’s ’95 Suburban, which is an ecological nightmare and ugly […]

what the hell is going on with people in Ohio?

Today is “smack-yer-forehead” day, right? That’s why I am finding out about all this stuff, right? Marsha Walker’s son survived a suicide bomb in Iraq. Her daughter spent a year in Kuwait last year, and her father is a former Marine reservist. She’s part of a military family; she and her sister went into criminal […]


I can’t believe this. I mean, I guess I do. What’s it mean to be a republican these days? Slime anyone who opposes you. It doesn’t matter who they are, or how honorably they have served their country. Win at all costs. Even if that cost is your own soul. Atrios is all over this.

How about this for a scenario?

Arianna Huffington has an interesting take on the Valerie Plame leak. What if Judith Miller has an even larger stake in this story that we’ve been thinking? Here it is: It’s July 6, 2003, and Joe Wilson’s now famous op-ed piece appears in the Times, raising the idea that the Bush administration has “manipulate[d]” and […]

Razor Ramon “Hard Gay” Sumitani’s cutting humor parodying stereotypical homosexuals has made him a firm favorite of Japan’s fickle schoolgirl fans, according to Asahi Geino (7/28). Looking akin to an outcast from the Village People, clad entirely in black leather — a body-hugging, sleeveless, shirt, micro-hotpants and […]
