"Supreme" Court disappoints.

Abe Lincoln: "I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavour to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”

Apparently the supreme court skipped class the day Abe Lincoln was discussed. Let's see Xe already has the right to bear arms, and that gunsight company is exercising their corporate religious freedom. What next? The right to vote? Why bother when they can purchase what they want...............

The McCain Presidency

Why is The Guardian so good at this stuff? (seems they let Shakespeare's sister have a turn.) Go read about McCain's first 100 days.

Days 33-67: 10% of the American population succumbs to rabies.

It's nice to see that the Obamas still have time to meet with the little people.

Guitar Zero?

Via Raw Story

Inverness Police say former Cook County Republican Chairman Gary Skoien admitted having two prostitutes in his children’s playroom when his wife walked in on him early Sunday morning.

The allegation is in a domestic battery report from Skoien, 55, against his 36-year-old, 5-foot-4-inch, 110-pound wife. He said she beat him with her fists and an electric guitar.
The first report I saw said she beat him with a toy guitar.... I'm thinking video game gone wrong? Hmmmmm

Well, it's no Elvis face on Mars, but interesting

Read article in the Telegraph. Could this be Atlantis? or maybe a deep-sea listening grid? mythology or conspiracy, your choice.

UPDATE: Already debunked. It's the grid pattern of the mapping boats. (Or maybe they are trying to keep the secrets of Atlantis from us....)

Dolly tells it like it is

Via Think Progress

Yesterday, legendary country music singer Dolly Parton had the “usually sedate crowd” at the National Press Club “cracking up with her self-deprecating humor and one-liners, including a few on politics.” Parton, who was in town for her role as an ambassador for Great Smoky Mountains National Park said, “Somebody said to me, ‘Well, you know what — you’ve got such a big mouth and you know how to talk to people, did you ever think about running for president?’ … I said, ‘I think we’ve had enough boobs in the White House, but hopefully [President] Obama ain’t gonna be one of them.’”

Today's deep thought

I don't smoke pot, but if I did I wouldn't share it Michael Phelps who probably has the lung capacity of a Clydesdale. I can see it now, "pfffft, sorry dude I smoked all your pot at once, again."

I learned (at least) two things today

1. "$500,000 is not a lot of money."
Well, roger me ragged, I always thought half a mill was not quite a sh*tpot full of money.

2. The true meaning of Christmas Waltzing Matilda. (from Climate Progess)

After you watch that,
Watch this, "And the band played Waltzing Matilda" by the Pogues, a great anti-war song.

Contact Reid

Please send Reid some spine! He must expose the obstructionism!
Here's what I wrote:

Call their bluff.
Make them filibuster!

Dear Senator Reid,

The republicans in the Senate seem intent on obstructing the stimulus bill (and probably other upcoming legislation as well.)

Please, please do not let the mere threat of a filibuster dissuade you.

Expose their obstructionist tactics to the light of day. MAKE THEM FILIBUSTER!!!!!

Best regards,
