The Piano That Broke The Camel’s Back

29-Jun-07

I have not posted in light of the recent Washington Post articles that suggest that Richard Cheney believes himself to be a supreme being, not so much a human being as a theoretical concept, a beam of light, if you will. I have been busy trying to figure out how to recover my jaw from […]

Million Dollar Bookmark

19-Jun-07

The works of Ayn Rand are to its readers like apple pie is to Jim Levenstein. You know. It’s a substitute for the real thing that you’re in the middle of screwing the hell out of in the kitchen when your father walks in. Um. Something like that. I call them “Atlas Slugs,” young impressionable […]

War Pigs

12-Jun-07

Television can ruin lots of things. Thanks to television, for instance, we snicker at Ozzy Osbourne these days and/or hold him simultaneously in esteemed affection. We forget that the man sang inspired protest lyrics once upon a time. “Politicians hide themselves away. They only started the war. Why should they go out to fight? They leave that role […]

Not Really.

05-Jun-07

The Politico today sez that the Jefferson indictment “complicates Democrats’ Campaign Strategy.” They sez the indictment “…provided a political opening for Republicans to fight back after being battered for months by guilty pleas from Republican lawmakers, aides and lobbyists linked to the Jack Abramoff scandal.” It doesn’t have to. Not if the Democrats do the […]

Weird. Just weird.

How damned weird is the case against Louisiana Congressman William Jefferson (D – La.)? $90,000 on ice? $90,000 on ice? I just hope some of the deliberation of this case and/or trial will be heard publicly so we can know what the hell this was all about. Duly noted, though: A Democrat has been indicted. Good. […]
