put food on your family

“And I’ll make the pie higher. Don’t forget that.”

Pie . . . hey, wait. Someone said there would be punch and pie. What gives?


Is that K-Lo behind the yawning boy?


I shit my pants and the Dustbin of History….


Brad, you are looking at this the wrong way. Bush’s base is so enthusiastic to re-elect a veto proof supermajority to both houses of Congress, that they know they’ve got this election in the bag. In fact, they are so confident of victory that some of them aren’t even going to bother going to the polls, just so that the defeatocrats aren’t quite as crushed.


Headline: Bush and bin Laden are most feared

LONDON — U.S. President George W. Bush presents more of a threat to world peace than the leaders of North Korea and Iran, and only Osama bin Laden is more feared, according to a poll of British voters published in The Guardian newspaper.

A majority of voters in Britain, Canada and Mexico, all key American allies, also think that the United States’ foreign policy has made the world less safe since 2001, the survey showed.

Some 69 per cent of British voters said that U.S. policy had made the world less safe, along with 62 per cent of Canadians and 52 per cent of Mexicans. About 36 per cent of Israelis gave the same response, a plurality.

Only Israeli voters continue to believe that the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 was justified, by a margin of 59 per cent to 34 per cent. Also, 89 per cent of Mexicans, 73 per cent of Canadians and 71 per cent of Britons now think the war was unjustified.

The poll was conducted by ICM, which interviewed 1,010 people in Britain. Other local polling firms surveyed 1,007 people in Canada, 1,078 in Israel and 1,010 in Mexico.

How British voters rate world figures for their fear factor
87%: Osama bin Laden, Al-Qaida terror leader
75%: George W. Bush, President of the United States
69%: Kim Jong Il, North Korean dictator
62%: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of Iran


Has anyone read Coulter’s latest?

Let me say here and now that I don’t think that the Dems are going to take back either house. I’m just not feeling it. Something will happen. Either everyone’s going to vote for the Republicans, or it will be made to look like everyone voted for the Republicans.

Be that as it may, however, Ann’s current screed explains how the Democrats are really on the ropes because, when they win on Tuesday, it will be by a smaller margin than other out-of-power parties won by in an off-year election.

Dems are losing, she posits, because they’re not winning by enough.

Desperation? Batshit wingnuttery? A delicious amalgam of both?

You too, Doc? I have this other-shoe-dropping thing that I’m waiting for. It may be as simple as the fix being in on the voting machines or as disastrous as another invasion somewhere. Or just a repetition-and-variation of the 2004 polls-are-crap experience. It does occur to me, though, that a part of my not feeling it may be a sense of dread: what if the Dems take both houses and still don’t do anything?


Ann may be onto something, however distasteful that may be to me. I have so little faith in the piss-their-pants electorate that I fear the worst; many may go to the polls and vote with their “guts” telling them Terra (TM) will only be solved by the Chimperor’s resolve. While I find this revolting, I also find it possible.

Well, as the saying goes the only poll that counts is the one on election day. And until the ballots are counted, we don’t know what will happen. But, as someone who likes to follow campaigns, the current republican strategy reminds me of nothing more than Canute’s attempt to hold back the tide.

They are pouring money into red states hand over fist. The current senate battlegrounds aren’t Ohio or Pennsylvania or Florida, but Tennessee, Missouri and Virginia.

The Republicans used every trick in the book to steal the 2000 and 2004 elections. But no matter how many vote suppression tactics you use, it only makes a difference in close elections. A few thousand more votes for Kerry in Ohio or Gore in Florida would have changed the picture. There suppression worked. The thing of it is, when you have a potential for a land slide (when the president is at mid thirties in popular support and congress is even lower), you can do everything in the world to minimize democratic turnout and it not matter.

This ain’t 2000, 2002 or 2004 no more. Bush ain’t popular. The neocons are jumping ship. Gary Ruppert spends his time complaining about Jim Webb, Harold Ford and Claire McCaskill; seats that shouldn’t be competitive but ARE. The question isn’t whether or not the Dems are going to make gains. The question is how big they will be.

Gary's Pooper (aka fabbo)

The fact is, this photograph was taken out of context. Bush had just told the audience to imagine he was John Kerry, telling a joke.

And speaking of jokes: Nancy Pelosi, Jim Webb, Harold Ford and Hilary Clinton. The Democrat party won’t gain a single seat, and will lose safe seats. Clearly, Republicans are deliberately giving false information to the pollsters to puff up the numbers for the Democrats and make them complacent. And it’s working.

(My theory on The Imitation of the Wingnut: Always stay inside the realm of possibility, and outside the realm of plausibility.)


Pull your socks up.



HBO has a bitche’n documentary out there call “Hacking Democracy” A must see.

They’re already “missing” a dozen so-called smart cards in Tennessee.


I think the audience is imagining what Bush would look like with his zipper CLOSED.

He just got done PISSING on ’em.


Zombies. Fucking zombies.

These are the sort of people who will actually sign a loyalty oath to get in to one of these things.

Even among these folks, there are many looking truly pained. Not bored, pained. Heh.


Who says Unions are dead? This is obviously the Amalgamated Association of Morons, Local 6 & 7/8ths, and their leader, “Shemp” Bush, a.k.a. “Hey, muttonhead!”

Yeah Adam, that’s exactly what I was going to say!

Um, moving on…

Don’t those folks look like Magneto in X-Men III when he sees Jean Gray go off on all those soldiers?

The fact is none of this matters, BECAUSE THE DEMOCRAT DRINK THE BLOOD OF PUPPIES!11!
