So how do you make a tinfoil hat?

Sorry about the lack of postings. I am visiting relatives in Florida. Will be back at my regular posting hopefully on Friday.

On his visit to Hungary, President Bush praised the Hungarians for resisting a foreign occupier. How stupid is this man? He suffers from a total lack of self awareness. He must be wearing cognitive dissonance goggles with lenses as thick as the polar ice caps.
The president sought to draw parallels between Hungary's transition from dictatorship to democracy and the U.S. enterprise in Iraq, where the administration is struggling to help launch a democratically elected government.

Here's the difference between Hungary's transition to democracy and Iraq - the Democratic Evolution was the result of internal changes in Hungarian society. Democracy was not forced upon Hungary the way the United States is trying to fit the model of Western Democracy upon Iraq. The Soviet Union invaded Hungary because it wanted to impose its vision of a communist government upon the Hungarians. Can you see the similarities? Bigger more powerful state wants to impose its view of the world on a smaller weaker state. However, I do have to admit the Soviet Union was more successful at stablizing Hungary then the United States is at stabilizing Iraq.

Let's see. We have a government dominated by one political party, with the goal of a "permenent Republican majority". Anyone who dissents is immediately smeared and threatened with the loss of income. And our government invades countries based on lies. WE WON THE COLD WAR TO BECOME TO SOVIET UNION??? wtf?

Changing trends?

Now can we impeach him??
Yes, Man please leave.
I stopped by the grocery store today and I saw these tabloids in the checkout line. The National Enquirer did break the story about aWol drinking last year. No one in the mainstream media picked it up. You'd think that an alcoholic falling off the wagon, especially when he is the President of the United States, would be bring up questions as to whether that person is fit to be President. But nooooo, that gets swept under the rug while the Clinton's marriage is front page news of the New York Times. IOKIYAR

Warning the following is snark:
Abu Musab al Zarqawi's Unitarian Jihad Name was: Sister Derringer of Patient Hope.


Linda Hirschman starts the wingnuts whining

Hat tip to Chelsea Morning.

Back in November, Linda Hirschman wrote an article in the American Prospect about how self-destructive that being a stay-at-home mother with a graduate degree was. What she didn't expect was the wrath of the wingnuts. Yes, we are beginning to see a theme here. Do not suggest that there is an alternative to their morals (which they want to impose on everyone) or they will bring the Wrath of God upon you. I know the wingnuts think that God speaks to them, I really think they should see a psychiatrist about those voices in their heads. Apparently, God is telling everyone except me that women should be married, subservient, pregnant and in the home. He tells Osama bin Ladin and Pat Robertson this, God forgot to give me the memo.
I learned something people really need to know. The aggressive domesticity is not coming only from a bunch of women who can't manage all the demands on their time. Time and again, when I could identify the sources of the most rabid criticism and Google them, male and female, they had fundamentalist religious stuff on their Web sites or in the involuntary biographies that Google makes possible. A lot of the fundamentalism behind the stay-at-home mom movement is overt, such as the letters worrying about my soul that appeared after the head of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary suggested his followers chat me up. But a lot of it is covert, such as the identity of the authors of manuals disguised as tips on frugal housekeeping, but actually proselytizing women to stay home, as the Bible suggests.
Yes, because working mothers were an issue so important to Jesus that he mentioned it zero times just like abortion and homosexuality. And don't hand me that crap that women didn't work 2,000 years ago. Women were the main herders in the Bedouin culture until very recently. Priscilla from the New Testament was a tentmaker. Deborah was a judge. It's amazing that religious leaders interpret their religion to work out to their advantage so they can get a free domestic slave. Let's see if your wife doesn't work, you don't have to pay for daycare and you don't have to help out around the house because that's her full time job.

What happens to the smug stay at home mom when her husband divorces her or dies? Divorce is particularly devasting to a stay at home mom. It's tough to get a job when you have been out of the workplace for years. Unless she has a solid pre-nupital agreement, there is no divorce insurance. She is cut off from her husband's pension and life insurance. Alimony is now a relic of the past. What's the best way to protect yourself from this problem? Don't quit your job when you have kids.

And your momma too!!

Larry Johnson gave the wingnuts a taste of their own medicine. WHAT A BITTER PILL IT WAS!! What did Larry have to say about Karl Rove?
"Leave it to the Porcine Draft Dodger--Karl Rove--to impugn the character of combat veterans. Can't blame him for trotting out the same playbook that worked so well in 2004 against the candidacy of John Kerry. If it worked once it should work again.

Of course I am referring to Karl's speech Tuesday night to Republicans in New Hampshire. According to a piece in Wednesday's Washington Post:

In a speech to New Hampshire Republican officials here Monday night, the White House deputy chief of staff attacked Democrats who have criticized the U.S. war effort in Iraq, such as Sen. John F. Kerry (Mass.) and Rep. John P. Murtha (Pa.), who he said advocate "cutting and running."

"They may be with you for the first shots," Rove said of such opponents. "But they're not going . . . to be with you for the tough battles."

Karl is a shameless bastard. This could explain why his mother killed herself. Once she discovered what a despicable soul she had spawned she apparently saw no other way out. It would be one thing if his vile tactics were simply mere smears of politicians like Kerry and Murtha. They are big boys and should be able to defend themselves quite ably against this turd. But Rove, like Josef Goebbels, has used fear and smear as his primary tools to keep George Bush in power."
Cue the whining of a 1,000 wingnuts. Apparently, they are the only ones allowed to say nasty things about their opponets. Immediately they jumped on Larry for the suicide remarks. There are two facts:
1. Karl Rove's mother committed suicide.
2. Karl Rove is a loathsome person who has no moral compass. He lied about his status as a college student to avoid military service in Viet Nam. He never met a veteran he didn't like to smear including John McCain.
Gee, maybe #1 has something to do with #2.
Now let's looks at Larry Johnson's career. He worked at the CIA, which means he had to have a Top Secret Clearance with some type of Lifestyle Polygraph. Now I remember from my security manager days from when I was in the Army, they don't give out security clearances to anyone with a background of lies and treachery. If Larry did what we think Karl Rove did in the Valerie Wilson case, Larry would go to jail for a very long time. Someone who lies to the government for their own advantage would not be eligible for a clearance. And yes, the background investigations are thorough. However, the rules for political appointees are different for political appointees. So as an analyst Larry put 2+2=Karl Rove had something to do with his mother's suicide. I really do think the person with the integrity problem is Karl Rove. But the wingnuts didn't like having that pointed out to them.
Some of the choice quotes are....
It's hard for me to comprehend the kind of soul-crushing hatred that would drive someone to mock a political opponent's family suicide. What's next -- yukking it up over rape victims? Just when I thought American political discourse could get no lower... Larry, why don't you and Coulter take a long vacation?

I guess he didn't listen to this clip from the Rush Limbaugh show.

(btw: is that a toupee larry johnson is wearing in the little photo on this blog? awfully bad.)

anyhow... here's a scoop I just got from the CIA/NYTIMES:

rove's mom didn't kill herself; she was murdered by the JOOOOOOOZE!

and it was covered up by the ISRAEL LOBBY!


BTW: larry, how do you sleep at night knowing that a few months before 9/11 you wrote in the nytimes that al qaeda wasn't a threat!?


jerks like you are why the cia is dysfunctional.

Posted by: reliapundit - the astute blogger | Friday, 16 June 2006 at 00:09
Nice, respond to an ad hominem attach with an ad hominem attack. Like I said, they can dish it out but they can't take. Go cry me a fucking river you wingnut.

If I were Larry's mother, I'd definitely kill myself.

Posted by: Karl | Friday, 16 June 2006 at 02:05

Larry, you really are a bitter douche bag. Murtha and Lurch are traitors and you're just one more kook that crawled out of the fever swamp. I am appalled that we have such mentally unstable people such as yourself working at the CIA. No wonder they missed Pakistan and India's nuclear weapons programs and misestimated Iraq's WMD programs.

Good work, shit for brains.

Posted by: Joey | Friday, 16 June 2006 at 08:51
Apparently, Joey never filled out an SF86. And yes, one of the things they check in an SSBI is mental stability. I think the one with shit for brains is Joey.

Wow, only a Liberal could actually think that bringing someone's mother's suicide into a discussion about the war is fair game.
I guess when your message is too stupid to stand on its own, its time to break out all the tasteless insults!

Posted by: Step | Friday, 16 June 2006 at 09:30

That's odd, Media Matters has catalogued 174 attacks on liberals. IOKIYAR

For all you who support this idiot Larry and his obnoxious comments about someone's mother, keep it up and ensure we continue to maintain control! Please keep putting out these personal, hate filled attacks, really. Oh, and from a 20 year veteran who served in four different conflicts, yes, Kerry and Murtha are scumbags who disgrace our country and the uniform they once wore.

Because taking the high road has driven the Democrats over a cliff. Well conservatives are always giving us useless advice.

Hmm, I would just love to hear the military histories of the folks here denouncing Karl as a draft dodger. Failing that, shall we have an expiation on Bill Clinton's war record? Shall we? No? Gee, what a shocker. We lack the vocabulary here for what must be said. To denounce Democrats of course sweeps up many honorable if ignorant people. Lefties? We're getting closer but still the self-desribed Lefty is not, presumptively, as vicious, worthless, witless and hopeless a skunk as we see demonstrated by Larry and his assorted disciples. Let us use the pronoun then, you, and you know who you are; "You mutts are the lowest scum on the face of the earth or for a good distance beneath. Miserable anti-American, anti-human and of course, anti-freedom. You should be cursed to hell but you have made a hellish environment for yourselves long ago. It extends from ear to ear and eyeball to bald spot. Do us all a favor and cut your own throats. Skipping the meds a day or two will make it easier. Karl's mother killed herself on a true recognition of Karl's nature? How did any of you vermin survive your first look in the mirror? Shame. Shame shame and more shame. I long for a face to face with any of you mutts who will cop to your slanders, bile and vicious stupidity."

That's odd, he didn't offer up his. And the ward nurse is looking for you. You missed your meds again. And when all else fails blame Clinton. Responisibility is only for liberals.

Good JOB LARRY! Keep it up! If you and the rest of the nutjobs in the Democratic Party keep spouting crap like this from your pie-holes, you'll hand the Republicans the election in 2006 on a silver platter. The 2008 convention looks more and more like a repeat of 1968 every day.

Posted by: Republican in Dallas | Friday, 16 June 2006 at 11:10
Funny, it works for Ann Coulter. I wonder if he has a party every November to celebrate JFK's death.

Please keep it up. More of this behaviour reinforces why the loony left should never even be left in charge of a pop stand, let alone the Federal Government. More of this, please.

Posted by: Sam Boogliodemus | Friday, 16 June 2006 at 11:24
Umm yeah, let's see....2500 soldiers dead in Iraq. Republican Senators support amnesty for terrorists who kill US soldiers in Iraq. George W. Bush went to a birthday party while New Orleans was destroyed by a hurricane. And the man responsible for the September 11 attacks is still on the loose. Last time I checked the White House, the Senate, the House of Representives and the Supreme Court are controlled by the Right. How's that Right Wing government working out? Not very well.
Where to start?

Larry the douche's former employer didn't predict the fall of a country that spans 12 timezones. Good call there fellas.

John Kerry is a sack of shit traitor. He recounted tales from the winter soldier bullshit to the Senate where most or all the participants were later proven to be liars who were nowhere near combat. He unlawfully met with the north vietnamese in Paris to conduct his own peace talks and likely received a less than honorable discharge from the military. Won't release his military records so I'll just assume that's the case until he proves otherwise. That is how things work in the left's cesspool isn't it? Calling Dan Rather.

John Murtha is a sack of shit traitor. He publicy accused Marines of atrocities in the middle of an investigation based on anonymous sources - and it's starting to look like the whole thing was made up bullshit from the beginning. Let's see, do you believe American soldiers or some sack of shit anti-American terrorists sunnis in Iraq. Uh, I'll go with the terrorists.

So we have Larry the inept CIA employee, Kerry the traitor who smeared our troops based on lies, and Murtha the traitor who smeared our troops without facts.

I think Rove is pretty much dead on in his assessment of each. What's the matter you jackasses, pissed that it's no longer acceptable to spit on soldiers at the airport?

You people make me sick. And did I really read that Larry actually threatened someone? What are you going to do Larry, shoot a paperclip at them with a rubber band?

Posted by: Jack Burton | Friday, 16 June 2006 at 11:39
For the record, the Soviet Union covered 11 time zones, John Kerry did release his military records, Jack Murtha served honorably too. I think Jack Burton is a traitorous chickenhawk. It really does take a sack of shit traitor to know one doesn't it?

There is two America's now.. both hate each other and I am personally looking forward to swinging my Louisville Slugger and smashing some liberal pumpkinheads.

Liberalism is the cancer... a bullet is the cure.

Come out from under your rocks and "Bring it On"

I see Ann Coulter made an appearance. What kind of idiot brings a baseball bat to a gunfight? And they say we're unhinged?

Go over and send Larry some Mojo, he needs it. The Freepi are lose on his blog and he needs help to put them back in their cages.

Training film for Iraqis

I found this obscure training film created by the US government to help the Iraqis transition to ownership of their own country.

Liveblogging the Tonys

8:06 Emperor Palpatine just won a Tony for leading actor in a play!

8:07 Rogue and Dracula are presenting the award for leading actress.
And the winner is.....the Giant Headmistress from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Lacey from Cagney and Lacey lost :)

8:17 Best choreography. Lillith is one the pressenters and she is nervous.
Kathleen Marshall wins her second Tony. It's like the best costume award at the Oscars!

8:20 Nurse Hathaway from ER!
Best director is....who??

You realize the Tonys don't get the hype the Oscars do. The audience for Broadway is much more limited than the audience for movies. The Broadway audience is limited to people who live in New York and tourists. Whereas movies are released in cinemas nationwide and eventually make it on to DVD thus a wider audience.

8:22 Now we have a skit with award show drinking games. Is this an advert to get people to buy soundtrack albums??

8:33 The girl from Six Feet Under and Phoebe's boyfriend. What is best book of a musical? I thought the Color Purple bombed, yet it still gets a nomination? (I haven't really paid attention to the world of theater since I left college.) I guess it's like the 70% of Americans who disapprove of George W. Bush are radical leftists.

Now it's best lyrics, at least the order of awards make sense. They don't hop around like the Golden Globes and the Oscars.

8:39 Doogie Howser all grown up!! Talking about Sweeney Todd ewww. Oh we get to watch a scene from it. Wonderful. Oooh it's, Fleet Street meets Orwell. Or the Weimar Republic in 1933.


Rosie Perez and John Boy!
The year in plays....

That's it, I'm going to bed. I've got a long day at work tomorrow.

Kathy Griffin is my Hero

Kathy Griffin on Ann Coulter's appearance on the Today show this morning.
Unlike Ann Coulter, Kathy Griffin actually went to Iraq to meet the troops.
And she didn't let a little thing like a soft shoe profile stop her either.

Sunday catblogging

Let me help you with your paperwork.
I'm sorry, what was the question again?

Here the kitties are free!

They charge to look at kitties.


This is why I'm not a Republican

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

If you are a pro-choice woman who votes Republican you are so fucking wrong!!! Because of a campaign of misinformation and terror, women's reproductive choices are being limited. This woman went to three doctors and a midwife for a prescription that could have prevented her unwanted pregnancy and abortion. Not one of them had the balls to write her a prescription for Plan B. Congradulations to all the "culture of life" voters out there, you just created conditions for more abortions.

Don't give me that I'm not an one issue voter crap. AWol's wife and mother are pro-choice is a bunch of bullshit. Well guess what you voted for aWol and the other Republicans who do pander to these one issue voters. Their wives, daughters, and mothers are just a front to reassure you that they're not going to take your rights away while they actually do that. The GOP women aren't worried, if they need an abortion they can fly to Amsterdam for one (if it hasn't been flooded by global warming). So if you don't vote GOP on abortion, why do you vote for the GOP?
National Security? Last time I checked, Osama bin Ladin was still free to make tape recorded threats against us while we've lost 2400+ American soldiers chasing wild geese in Iraq. A war that was OBL's biggest propaganda victory. Yes, the GOP coddles terrorists, foreign and domestic.
The economy? Fiscal conservatism is a scam that only benefits the Paris Hiltons of the United States.
Global Warming is a myth? Go see this movie. It is a fact and so is evolution.
Which brings us to education. When conservatives say they need to cut the bureaucracy of the school system, they are talking about eliminating the librarian, the reading specialist, the school nurse, the music teacher, and the physical education teacher. All of whom are very important to a child's education. Yeah, I hated PE, but when childhood obesity is at epidemic levels, kids need exercise. And music!! I just found out my son can sing. He didn't inherit his parents' tone deafness. And don't get me started on the challenges to science in the classroom where IslamicChristian fundalmentalists want to teach your children conflicting myths over biology. Or when it comes to sex education that telling kids that abstinence is the only way to go. Conservatives live in a fantasy world where teenagers don't lie about sexual activity to their parents, teachers or peers. BTW, abstinence only sex ed only leads to more unplanned pregnancies and abortions, just like denying prescriptions for emergency contraceptives to desperate women who were playing by the rules.

You must see this movie!!

I just saw An Inconvenient Truth with my son. You must go see it. It is an amazing movie that explains the dangers of global warming if we (as Americans) do not change our ways. Millions of people will be displaced if we don't. What happened in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina is only the warm up (pun intended) to the displacement of millions of Americans. Imagine a United States without a Miami, Tampa, New Orleans, Mobile, Alabama, San Francisco or New York City when sea level raises 20 feet. It's not only Americans who will suffer, millions of people around the world will be displaced.

If you see one movie this summer this must be it. And then promise your children that you will keep the world safe for them.

Oh, and you will really be pissed off that the Supreme Court put that usurper aWol in the White House instead of letting the recount in Florida finish and put the rightful president in place.



And you thought the Pussycat Dolls action figures were a bad idea?

Try explaining to your seven year son why he can't have an skeetoozonator.
I think Hasbro is targeting the wrong demographic for this toy. If Hasbro wants to get into the sex toy business, it really needs to create a new division to market them.
