A Big Timeout

From Overspun

He's done a couple of these, but this is the best so far.
It's not Osama, but.......

Waingroh has been detained in Guantanamo Bay for the last few weeks, for an unspecified violation of his parole, and has bargained for limited internet access during his stay of an unspecified amount of time.....

As Waingroh posted three weeks ago, the Bush clan was pressuring Musharraf and the Pakistani boys to come up with a High Value Target, and that "it would be best if the arrest or killing of [any] HVT were announced on twenty-six, twenty-seven, or twenty-eight July"--the first three days of the Democratic National Convention in Boston." Well, they missed it by one day (I'm sure Karl Rove will have to give Pervez a nasty call), but they got their man.

The term "like clockwork" is becoming synonymous with Rove's transparent and scripted campaign. Like a bad movie, cliche plot twists can be seen a mile away and events unfold just to set up eye rolling one-liners. Maybe that's why Ahnold's become such a rising star in the Republican Party. "AghgHagh! Come see my holiday classic JINGLE ALL ZEE VAY!!!"

He is the man.

CNN of course gave Ralph Reed almost as much time as Edwards to spout his vomit in response.
Will Ferrell does George W.

Watch the video and then donate (they match dollar for dollar)


Is it possible we could have a black president before a woman president? Obama makes me think so, wow. And despite what the right says, I don't think Hillary would mind too much.

Vision does not ensure wisdom
My favorite quote so far from the convention was from President Clinton:
Their opponents will tell you to be afraid of John Kerry and John Edwards, because they won't stand up to the terrorists -- don't you believe it. Strength and wisdom are not conflicting values.

It's amusing to watch the GOP respond to that statement:
Republicans gathered at the GOP war room on Tuesday tried to pick apart a suggestion by former President Clinton that Kerry has the "strength and wisdom" to keep America safe.

"Part of wisdom is having a vision and being consistent with that vision," said Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman. "With Senator Kerry, we have seven different positions on his vote against the 87 billion dollars for Iraq.

Notice they bring up vision, not wisdom. Not really comparable in my mind... Name a dictator that had a vision and wasn't consistent with it... are they saying that consistency is a sign of wisdom? My dog shits in the same part of the yard every day. Now, as I've mention in the past, he is quite smart, but do I think he should run the country because he has a vision of shitting in the yard that he is consistent with, probably not.
Convention Coverage: Day Two

There is no doubt in my mind that Shepard Smith of Fox Report is gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Has Reagan always been so cool? Not just his speech, but I've been watching him on MSNBC lately (don't ask), and he seems like a pretty good guy.

I know his speech has been billed as "non-partisan", but so far it seems like a not so subtle jab at the religious right. Gotta love that.
Just listened to Sean Hannity on the Al Franken show. I want to pull my hair out. Apparently if you just talk over everyone, no matter what you say, you're right. The bullshit spewing out of his mouth, I don't know how Franken didn't slug him. What a fuckin sleaze.

Convention Coverage You'll Get Nowhere Else

Updated in realtime.

Bob Novak is gross. He makes me physically ill.

Wonkette is kind of hot... kind of.

Is Anderson Cooper in his 20's, or 50's?

Most bloggers are too ugly to be in radio.

According to channels 44 - 48, "Shove it" is just as offensive as "Go fuck yourself".

Apparently, this is Atrios.

Remember what a real President was like?

Why can't we repeal the 22nd amendment?

Clinton: "They need a divided America... We don't."

He is a rockstar.

It's Official

Lance just one his sixth Tour in a row. Amazing. This one wasn't ever really close either. From the prologue on, Lance let it be known that there would be no gifts this year and he was out to set the record. Lance normally wins it in the mountain stages, be he just destroyed the mountains this year, and with that, the rest of the competition.

It will years before history will be able to sort out how great Lance really is, but I put him up higher than MJ, easily one of the greatest athletes of all time.
