Blood is boiling

MAUREEN DOWD finally exposed herself in this Sunday's column. Usually I don't read it but today I scanned it and found out that she is the embattled little sister in a family of "Buchananite Republicans". No wonder she's so whacked out! It all falls into place - little Maureen - no one pays attention to her - no one takes her seriously - she'll show them! - she'll get lots of attention by saying exactly the kinds of things they hate - She can't live up to their standards so she will reject their entire world view. George Bush is a surrogate for her brothers. She knows exactly what he's like - she's met hundreds of preppie Republicans just like him. She's still in high school and GWB is the rowdy jerk that she never got over. She'll just have to live with him for another 4 years.

Dan Rather Stepping Down

This resignation of Dan Rather is long, long, long overdue. He has been the anchor for CBS News for 24 years- that's right 24 pompous and overbearing years. His insane hatred for the Bush clan drove him to broadcast a false story based on untrue documents and this time he got caught. It couldn't have happened to a more deserving schill for the soft socialist pablum that is infused throughout our major media institutions. He should have been fired on the spot. Instead a whole NYC/DC media cabal made excuses for him and blamed his producer - what crap. Goodbye Dan - Take a long vacation in the " workers paradise " 90 miles off the cost of Florida. I'm sure your bearded pal will keep the prostitutes and cigars flowing. Treason.


Here's what the Election of 2004 has brought us to - the brink of secession . The Future?

Pacers vs. Pistons vs. Fans

Can we just call off the NBA 2004-2005 season right now? I make a plea to all of the hoops "players" - please fallow Ron Artest's lead by making rap music and stop playing this mind numbingly stupid game. Or how about this suggestion for the fans - stop watching basketball games! They suck. Attending one can be a health risk. Not that I mind seeing Basketball fans get beat up - I don't. In fact, I really liked watching those idiots from Detroit get smacked down by the African-American giants. In a cosmic sense the basketball fans deserve to be punished for funding the NBA with their hard earned money. Finally, to the sports casters on ESPN (and I'm sure elsewhere) please stop blaming the fans for the fact that the Pacer's players went into the stands and beat them up. These "players" are multi-millionaire pampered babies who should accept any verbal abuse as part of their job description. Blame the players when they punch fans.

Thanks, but I think I'll just surf the Internet instead.

Can TV get any worse than tonights line up on ABC Television? Extreme Makeover Jason, aka "Bubba," is a bartender and rodeo rider whose looks and body had been broken down from all his rough riding and honky tonk nights.

The Clinton Presidential Center

Clampett museum opens today! "Now, I have to go back to work on my State of the Union speech. And I worked on it until pretty late last night. But I want to say one thing to the American people. I want you to listen to me. I'm going to say this again. I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky. I never told anybody to lie, not a single time -- never. These allegations are false. And I need to go back to work for the American people." January 26, 1998 REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT AT THE AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM EVENT A quote from the "red state" Bible?

'I lost ten years of my life to drink'

Sounds like he lost a lot more than 10 years but here's the money quote. "I could have done something with my life I was told I was very good at art."

H.L. Mencken

While I'm quoting others on the subject of elections, here's another: "When a candidate for public office faces the voters he does not face men of sense; he faces a mob of men whose chief distinguishing mark is that they are quite incapable of weighing ideas, or even of comprehending any save the most elemental -- men whose whole thinking is done in terms of emotion, and whose dominant emotion is dread of what they cannot understand. So confronted, the candidate must either bark with the pack, or count himself lost. His one aim is to disarm suspicion, to arouse confidence in his orthodoxy, to avoid challenge. If he is a man of convictions, of enthusiasm, or self-respect, it is cruelly hard... "The larger the mob, the harder the test. In small areas, before small electorates, a first rate man occasionally fights his way through, carrying even a mob with him by the force of his personality. But when the field is nationwide, and the fight must be waged chiefly at sec

Holland vs. "Goatfuckers"

Christopher Caldwell has written about the Theo van Gogh murder - Holland's Deadly Tolerance "The most hopeful sign of the week may have been the U.S. visit of the pro-American NATO chief Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, who as Dutch foreign minister was one of the architects of the Netherlands' pragmatic engagement in the Iraq coalition. De Hoop Scheffer met President Bush on Wednesday; the following day, in an interview in New York, he warned that there is a gap between the United States and Europe in their perceptions of the terrorist threat. ' If the gap is to be bridged,' he added, ' it has to be done from the European side. ' Events, alas, are seeing to that."
Egg Head 

Guru James Carville

Carville lost it yesterday on Meet the Press. I saw him reach down into a bag he had brought into the studio thinking he might be pulling out a gun - instead it was an egg. The look on Russert's face was priceless - The Democrats are really melting down.

Dave Leip's Atlas of U.S. Presidential Elections

This is the BEST site I've seen on mapping the US election results. Non-partisan and just the facts reporting. This site uses (properly IMHO) the color Red for Democrats and Blue for Republicans. There is tremendous detail and great historical data. Looking at the furcated voting in earlier US Elections puts the relative simplicity of 2004 (and even 2000) in perspective.

Yasser Arafat vs Scott Peterson

Two of the most boring personalities imaginable are invading my consciousness today. Yasser Arafat was a terrorist to be sure - but I mean, just look at the guy. What the hell is all the fuss about? Thank God that President George Bush stopped dealing with Arafat and just let him die alone and impotent. He was a complete waist of time AND ALWAYS WAS. Thinking of all the time and energy (and money) that was devoted to this piss poor goofball is infuriating. And talking about waisting time and energy - how can Scott Petrerson still be on the TV. I vote death ASAP. What a boob. Two people truly worth of a solid bell ring - my they meet in Hell some day and be forced to engage in perpetual battle in a small boat rocking on the Dead Sea.
