RIP Blogger.

May have to give some thought to life and blogging while Blogger/Blogspot takes another bit of time off for some "unexpected maintenance."

See you later.

I hope.

In So Many Words.

Vice President Dick "Dick" Cheney tells Sen. Arlen Specter to go fuck himself.

Specter says he's going to get really mad, make a lot of press, then do nothing about it.

This is a pair of assholes who were simply made for each other.

I used to have a lot of respect for Specter, but he's been completely out of touch with these assholes, aiding and abetting the criminals every step of the way.

What a shame.

You Know What They Say.

The only good motherfucker is a dead one.

So here's to you, Zarkawi, or whatever your real name was. I'll have a big drink on you this evening and take a piss on this last and best image of you. (I'm liking this one quite a bit, too.)

You know, I would really like to think that this will do something... anything good would be nice for a change... in Iraq, but I just doubt it.

What we have to remember is that this motherfucker was not even allied with bin Laden until we overran Iraq and became targets. And he really had no power until we essentially made his power for him.

There is no "Mission Accomplished" on this one, because I don't think this does anything except relieve the world of one more God-Damned troublemaker.

And God knows, there're plenty more where this pus-filled hemorrhoid came from.


Fred Upton is Denny "J. Dennis" Hastert's Schmuck of the Month for June.

Get this:
Chief supporter Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., said the new fines were appropriate for getting "the filth and triple-X smut off the public airwaves."

Does anybody even know what the fuck this freak is talking about?

Freddy: This is triple-X.

This is probably more like what you're talking about.

Why is this more important than conducting the nation's business in the House of the people?

And when was the last time this freak did anything meaningful, as a measure of his public service.

At Least I'm Thinkin' About It...

I'm seriously thinking about being a Bikini Strangler. Maybe just a Bikini Killer.

Just so I can make the top story on Fox and MSNBC.

I'm only thinking about this.

Blumenthal in Salon.

You must read this compelling piece, describing the yin and yang of the Bush Sr. and Jr. relationship. Hard to believe.

Bush Sr. asked general to replace Rumsfeld. Sr. is rebuffed by Jr.


Welcome, Department of Justice.

From the logs, I can see the daily visits from our good friends at the Justice Department.


Say, have you heard the one about the criminal records check in the Hastert family?

Too Funny!

Dow Dips Below 11K.

Big Fucking Surprise.

News on energy prices: Not good.
News on consumer confidence: Not good.
News on jobs: Not good, and people are beginning to question the accuracy of the rate.
From the Fed: Not good; we're all getting worried about the next rate hike.

Here's a little tune I like to sing when I lose my ass in the market:

Kiss today goodbye,
The sweetness and the sorrow.
Wish me luck; the same to you.
But I can't regret what I did for love.
Look my eyes are dry.
The gift was ours to borrow.
It's as if we always knew,
And I won't forget what I did for love.

Pentagon News on VA ID Loss Grim.

The Pentagon announced that the Veterans Administration, a favorite wrapper of the Republican party, lost 2.2 million records of active duty personnel.

Pentagon and VA officials made the announcement after revealing that a check of a slide rule showed that 2.2 million is a bit more than the 50,000 records Navy officials had earlier admitted were stolen.

Democrats, such as Illinois Congressman Lane Evans, a Marine Corps veteran who is also a retiring member of the Veterans Affairs Committee, called the security breach "breathtaking" and called on the GAO to begin an immediate investigation.

Congressional Republicans talked about their Cute Little Gay Marriage Amendment today, hoping to gain another two years of "leadership" of a wholly incompetent government, and the total plunder of the nation's treasury.

Garrison Keillor.

Pure Genius. In tomorrow's

Potato... Po-tah-to...

Democrats talk about energy, economic and environmental issues, and Republicans continue to drag the queers up on stage for a gangbang.

Oh, yeah. There's your leading by example thing.

While all the important things in the world go completely unnoticed by the Republicans holding your government hostage, nothing at all productive is getting done.

And The Beat Goes On...

More than 6,000 dead in Baghdad this year alone.


Denny Hastert: Accountable To No One.

Salon's War-Room today reports a report from the Center for Public Integrity, American Public Media and Northwestern University's Medill News.

Among the juicy bits in the War-Room piece:
It's good work if you can get it. And some members -- most of them Republican in the House of Representatives -- were really good at getting it. The offices of nine Republicans and two Democrats accepted more than $350,000 each in free travel. The big trippers: House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Joe Barton (R-Texas), House Majority Whip Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas), House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.), Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.), Rep. Michael Oxley (R-Ohio), former Rep. W.J. Tauzin (R-La.), Rep. Bill Thomas (R-Calif.), Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fla.), and Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska).

While most of the trips don't violate any laws, the report finds numerous ethical violations -- and that's even after you make the rather dubious assumption that all of the trips were legitimately related to the members' official duties in Congress. Among the problems: Although ethics rule bar congressional trips paid for by firms registered to lobby the government, the report finds that such firms sponsored a portion or all of at least 90 trips worth approximately $145,000.
That, my dear friends, is what we call dirty money where I come from.

Welcome, Beelzebub!

...lord of flies.

Today is the day many of us have figured George W. Bush and Fristy-Hastert would push the button to launch the Official End of the World, for this is Six-Six-Six (06/06/06).

Oh, my Goodness. We'll have to see what happens. I'll be sitting in the shade today waiting it out with the bomb shelter kit at my side.

Here We Go Again.

Watch news today as Republicans prepare to roll out the centerpiece of the November campaign: The Constitutional Amendment to Ban Gay Marriage.

And watch as Denny "J. Dennis" Hastert gobbles this up again like so many hot, buttered pancakes at IHOP.

Of course, if it weren't for dumb shit like this, nothing would get done in Washington.

So where's your "Party of National Security" now?

Picking on queers again.
