Ich sprech kein Spanish, Sprechen sie English?

Yes, the right wing is all atwitter about a version of the Star Spanglished Banner in Spanish. Oh the horror!! I guess we should change the names of the following states: Florida (Flower festival), California (Land of the Caliph, yes it's a salute to Spain's MuslimMoorish heritage), Nevada (snowy land), Arizona (dry zone), Colorado (Colorful), Montana (Mountain), and New Mexico (o.k. so we changed it halfway, it was Nuevo Mexico). I guess we should rename the Grand Canyon the Grand Revine. No, we cannot rename it the Grand Arroyo, arroyo is a Spanish word too. We are after all, a 100% English speaking country. So no more tacos, burritos, chalupas or papusas for you, right wing bigot.
So from now on, these words are verboten:
Salsa, it's sauce dammit.
Gaucho, and they were coming back into style. From now on, they are palazzo capris.
Negro - the color not the race.
Blanca- and we'll have to rename that movie to Whitehouse.
Sierra - that's going to involve new maps and renaming a soda.
Potato- we did have a Veep who couldn't spell it, oh let's call the whole thing off
Chocolate - when you pry it from my cold, dead hands you can take it away from me
Alligator - the University of Florida is going to have to find a new mascot. See, Florida State isn't the only politically incorrect university in Florida
Cafeteria - we need to find somewhere else to eat
Guerrilla - one man's terrorist is another man's insurgent, freedom fighter.
Cigar and Cigarette
Cilantro - call it what it really is, coriander
Marijuana - not that you should be smoking it
ALGEBRA - the bane of many a math student, thanks to the Eschatonians for the suggestion.
What the wingnuts do not understand about America is that our culture is an amalgam of other cultures. Our music is a combination of Irish-Celtic and Aftican traits. We celebrate Oktoberfest, St. Patrick's Day and Cinco de Mayo. If 5/5 hasn't been cancelled. So I must ask the Fox News question: Is there a war on Cinco de Mayo?
So go vamoose. Go now. Adios, and I'm not saying that again.

What a jerk!!

REPUBLICAN Congressman Charles Taylor wants to stop building a September 11 memorial for the people who died in United flight 93. Why? Because the federal government owns too much property. I suspect that the crescent in the plans plays a part, he just doesn't want to sound batshit crazy like a certain non-MILF does.

Well Charles H. Taylor does have an opponet in November, he's Heath Shuler. Donate here.


Prince Harry

Princess Diana's youngest son is graduating from Sandhurst, (the British version of West Point and really wants to follow his classmates to Iraq or Afghanistan. I don't blame him, after all you don't join the army to sit around at home. Now only if American children of priviledge understood the obligations of public service just like Harry Wales does.

Look who is still experiencing the joys of freedom

Osama bin Ladin has released another communique reminding us of aWol's stupidity and incompetence. This time he's threatening Israel. Apparently bin Ladin's approval ratings are slipping in the Arab world and he needs to improve them.

Could someone please explain to me how the man responsible for the murders of 3,000 people on September 11, 2001 is still free to threaten the West? Why was it so important to capture Saddam Hussein? Oh yeah, he tried to kill aWol's daddy. So aWol got his justice, yet 3,000 families are still waiting for theirs and 2300+ American soldiers died to avenge aWol's daddy's honor. Oh yeah, we have Zaccarias Moussaoui on trial, but he's crazy and he didn't plan it, or order the attacks.


Is it an insult if you don't know what it means?

My insulting name is Pissknickers Gingerminge!
What's yours?

And for my real name:

My insulting name is Rider of a female camel Spunkslinger!
What's yours?

And NoPT4Lent's real name:

My insulting name is Scurvydog Spunkslinger!
What's yours?

Not that slavery is a cool thing.

I am worth $2,298,026 on


I don't care who wins the primary as long as they can beat George Allen

Harris Miller has officially thrown his hat into the ring. He will face James Webb June 13 for the priviledge of stopping George Allen's bid for the White House.
Did you know the George Allen and George W. Bush have more in common than just the same first name? Did you know they are puppets of the religious reich? Did you know they are both really dumb? Allen's more articulate than Bush. They are both pseudo-cowboys. Neither were born in the state they claim to be from. Bush was born in Connecticut, Allen was born in California. Neither one of those states scream redneck to me.
Do we really want another poser in the White House?
I didn't think so.

I don't think that's going to work

The Bush twins are being replaced as part of a White House attempt to improve its approval ratings. For some reason, I don't think it's going to work. I think the only thing that would improve Bush's ratings is for Bush, Cheney and the entire cabinet to resign effective January 21, 2007. (And hopefully, we can say hello to President Nancy Pelosi.)


If only I could be so cheap!!

But then again, maybe not! He's written a book about being cheap. I will follow his example and check it out from the library.

I don't know if I'd want to go into dumpster diving, but I'm sure he has some good advice.

Who started the War on Easter?

Hmmm, looks like the Easter Bunny started it.

Hat tip to Watertiger.

So he's a useful control freak

From the Washington Post we get another reminder that the masterminds behind September 11 are still free. So, Ayman al-Zawahiri is afraid of losing control of the Radical Islamic Movement. Apparently, he's not afraid of being captured. I do not believe that because al-Qaida has schisms means that it is defeated. As long as the current administration allows Zawahiri and bin Ladin to remain free, al Qaida will be a threat to the safety of Americans. aWol, Darth Cheney and Dumsfeld need the leadership of al Qaida to be free. How do you think the worst.president.ever got re-elected? He exploited the fact that Osama bin Ladin was still free to instill fear in the American public to get re-elected. Remember how aWol's approval ratings were in the basement on September 10, 2001? And how they skyrocketed after 9/11? The attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were the best thing that ever happened to aWol.

And the MSM wonders why aWol's approval ratings are in the 30's and the generals are revolting.

Where's George? Allen, not Bush silly.

Thanks to Alice Marshall from GOTV who sent the link.

For a moment, let's put aside the pettiness of the primary fight and remember the most important thing: GEORGE ALLEN IS A BLOOMING IDIOT!


Our long (two week) (inter)national nightmare is now over

Molly the Cat is free at last, thank God almighty, free at last.

I think she finally got hungry enough to find her way out.

And lecturing your cat about the dangers of unprotected wall infiltration will not help. It's a cat, cats don't listen to people.

Never back down, never surrender

There's a lot to be angry about in the world. I will not quit until justice is done.


I'm back

I'm back from my trip visiting my family in Florida. I have survived it.

Saturday Catblogging

No, you cannot come to Florida with us.
I am going to Florida until Wednesday. Unfortunately, I am going to Clay County in Northeast Florida, the reddest part of Florida. Seriously, the closest Drinking Liberally is three hours away in Tallahassee. And I need to watch out for Homeland Security agents. who are casing elementary schools and roughing up teacher's assistants.

It still hurts us

Yes, the president has ultimate declassification authority. But it is a responsibility that should not be abused. Disclosing the name of a CIA officer to the press is just as damaging to our HUMINT collection capabilities as what Aldrich Ames did to our HUMINT collection capabilities during the Cold War. How is the disclosure of Valerie Plame Wilson's name any different than Robert Hanssen's revealing the identities of Sources we had recruited in the Soviet Union? Because of Ames's and Hanssen's actions, Sergey Motorin and Valeriy Martynov were executed.

How many people died because the President thought it would be o.k. to leak Valerie Wilson's name to members of the press in order to retaliate against Joe Wilson whose only crime was to point out the President was lying?


And the Republicans have the nerve to say anyone who criticizes the President is a traitor. Yet we have a traitor in the White House who is just as evil as Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen. Could someone please explain to me how the Republicans are good for national security? Because for some reason I just don't get it.



Fred Phelps and his merry band of assholes is in town. On the bright side, Freepers had this to say about them:
"All the stuff they're talking about, homosexuality and everything, it's really not an issue with me," said Jim Melville, 64, a Free Republic member. "It's that they're carrying their message against these guys in that hospital. They can believe whatever they want. It's a free country. I just don't like it happening here, in front of these troops."

Another member, Buford Demming, 48, said: "You cannot get any lower than this. Lowest of the low. Even some of the liberal groups, the antiwar crowd, I don't think it would even occur to them to protest at a funeral or someplace like this."

Thank you for acknowledging that Liberals have nothing to do with Fred Phelps and his merry band of assholes.

Gotta love kids

I was watching
Countdown with Keith Olbermann with my son when the "Worst Person in the World" segment came on. Bill O'Reilly was again #1. My son gets up and yells out loud, "AGAIN!!!"

You had to have been there.

George Allen, one of the stupidest 1% of US Senators

From Dependable Renegade. I see George Allen wants Christian jihadist General Boykin to run Special Operations Command (SOCOM).


I am assuming that George Allen thinks General Boykin's main qualification is his religious faith. But hey, Article 6 of the Constitution was never an impediment to demagoguery. You know the part that says
no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.
As someone who lives in Virginia, I am deeply embarrassed that this man was our governor and is now our junior Senator. Please, Jim Webb save us from this idiot.



I admit it, I was in a bit of a funk since Independence Air stopped flying. Cheap and short flights to Jacksonville were getting hard to find. I saw one flight on Northwest that went through Detroit and took ten hours. Shit, include security and check in that schedule and it would be less hassle to drive.

But it's Southwest to the rescue! Southwest will start flying from Dulles. Hooray!!! Now I don't have to drive all the way to BWI to hop on a Southwest Airlines flight.
