Listening to Laura

Maybe Bush should try listening to his wife instead of hiding behind her skirts. Normally, I wouldn’t pay much attention to what Laura Bush says or thinks. And that’s usually because she’s usually prattling on about stuff like not believing … Continue reading

Gore on SNL: Laugh or Cry?

Perhaps Both. Al Gore gives a speech on last night’s SNL, as though he’d become president in 2000. It would be funnier, if it weren’t also more than a little sad. Video and transcript below the fold.

Is It Fitzmas Yet?

Apparently, this is just breaking. Karl Rove has been indicted on charges of perjury and lying to investigators. Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald spent more than half a day Friday at the offices of Patton Boggs, the law firm representing Karl … Continue reading

Thanks to Bolo Boffin for reminding me of the Dean I used to know, at a time when I think  barely recognize the guy. Oh well, I still have the memories

GA Tech Sez “To Heck With Bigots”

I posted earlier about some wingnuts suing Georgia Tech, and the meme about the intolerance of intolerance is the “new intolerance” (or is that the tolerance of intolerance in the “new tolerance”?), but it got eaten in the last database … Continue reading

Are the rumors killing you as much as they’re killing me? The latest is that in the pas week Rove told Bush and Bolton he will be indicted and will resign once Fitzgerald announces the charges.

While Dean, henceforth known as "the ex", falls back on the lame old excuse of "he didn’t really mean anything to me", his new boyfriend is sounding crazier by the day. Oh well. I hope they’re happy together.

According to a new Harris poll, Dubya’s approval ratings are now in the 20s. 29%, to be exact. The only thing that could make this better would be a Rove indictment before COB tomorrow. Pardon me while I bask in … Continue reading

Bigotry & Belief

As long as we’re talking about scientific types (see the previous post about MIT) head over to Dispatches from the Culture Wars, where Ed is holding forth on the latest madness from the Traditional Values Coalition, in the form of … Continue reading

Dems? Dean? Done.

That’s it. As of today, or at least as soon as my county board of elections gets my updated voter registration, I am no longer a registered Democrat. I am officially unaffiliated. Why, you ask? Well, I guess it was … Continue reading

Not-So-Proud Mary

OK. I wasn’t going to say anything about Mary Cheney’s recent full-court-press to promote her book in the media, but my bullshit meter just went so far in the red that I can’t stand it any more. I kept my … Continue reading

Iraqi Gays Still Hunted, But Who Cares?

I was all set to blog about an account of the horrific death of Atwar Bahat, a leading Iraqi television journalist. Fortunately, before I could blog about it I found out via Peter Daou that the video that inspired the … Continue reading

The Blessed and the Unblessed

Becky, over at Preemptive Karma, makes an interesting observation about Ken Lay’s courthouse steps declaration that "God has blessed me and my family enormously." Funny how many crooks invoke God when their honesty is being questioned. And funny how they … Continue reading

Bird Flu, Bush Cronies & Appropriate Panic

I’ve been watching with some amusement the commercial previews for the upcoming television movie Fatal Contact: Bird Flu in America. Not because it’s a comedy or because I find pandemics amusing, but because it would probably be more terrifying than … Continue reading

I asked earlier, just what the Democrats’ strategy on gay issues is for 2006. Well now we know. Basically it’s "Shut up, faggot." One thing’s for sure, I bet the new guy (and his partner if he has one) steer … Continue reading
