Same sinking ship, new rat jumps off….

Tony Snow, the presidential spokesliar is the newest member of the “George Who?” club. He follows down that slime trail left by Rove, Gonzales, RumFilled, AssCrack, Snotty McClellan, the train wreck named Harriet Miers, et al.

Tony, I can only hope you’ll be somehow able to find medical insurance for yourself as someone who has a pre-existing condition. And by pre-existing condition, I mean your cancer problem, not the bad smell that all the former associates of that cancer on the nation in the White House have.

Just curious, is anyone else picturing Bush wandering in the halls at night in search of anyone that will just talk to him, other than the trapped first lady?

Sen. Larry “I am so not gay” Craig , G-Idaho

BREAKING NEWS: Sen. Craig denies being gay
Los Angeles Times – 1 hour ago
“I am not gay,” Sen. Larry Craig said twice during a 10-minute statement today following news that he had pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct (after being arrested in an airport restroom near Minneapolis).
Craig’s counter: It’s the media’s fault The Carpetbagger Report
Straight as an arrow Wilmington Morning Star

Up to the last few days, he was known as Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, now I suppose he’s going to have to be listed as Sen. Larry Craig, G-Idaho.

Nearly famous (some say “fabulous”) conservative blogger Hugh Hewitt was yesterday said to be urging Craig to give up his seat , but it’s not clear if he was referring to the one in the airport restroom, or his political office.

Larry is, by the way, not gay, only curious. His boyfriend “backs him up” on this matter in an interview to be released to the media later today.

On a possibly related note, it was announced today that Idaho has won the right to be the official convention site for the National Association of Closet Door Manufacturers.

I have some good / bad / worse news for you!

The good news?

You will not be going to serve in Iraq.

The bad?

You’ve been assigned to duty as a motorcycle officer in the next Bush motorcade.

The worse news?

You and your motorcycle are going to Iraq, and Condoleezza Rice will be riding on the back as you shuttle her around on her next mission seeking peace in a place that has never seen it before!

Going to need new underwear?

I’d be looking into Kevlar with a Depends liner.

Adios, el Presidente

Hey, make that Adios, el Pendejo Presidente!!!

Well, another rat has jumped off the good ship Booosh.

Alberto Gusano, er… sorry, make that Gonzales, has joined the previous inner reich that have left the gang to spend more time with their families, or more likely, with their legal advisers.

Hey Condi, getting a little lonely now are we?

It’s looking more and more like that song kids learned in school long ago, way before it was politically incorrect; sing along if you can remember the words:

10 little, 9 little, 8 little indians…………..

……and then there was one little idiot boy.

Apple before ATT? It’s more than an alphabet issue

Did Steve slip ATT a hot hard one?

All the news feature articles about how people are finding and publishing ways their Apple phones can be used on other phone service providers systems are, IMHO, overlooking one possible view.

What if Steve Jobs had this in the works from the beginning? Perhaps he used ATT like a tool to get a rapid jump in the crowded phone field for his version of the Crackberry?

Imagine this: Apple hits up ATT with a great offer, push our phone in all of your advertising, and we’ll give you the exclusive run with it. ATT being the greed whore that it is, bites hard.

Meanwhile, Apple has designed in a back door that would allow (after a certain amount of time) someone who could, for instance, be given the code to bypass the locking system, to make it into a world phone.

No one has asked how some 17 year old hacker got two iPhones to play around with to do his R+D, does his home financial picture allow for this?

Well, more power to him anyway, I kicked ATT to the curb as my cellular provider years ago, and now I’ve done the same with my home long distance. This has resulted in a nice chunk of change in savings on both of my phone bills.

Maybe it’s time to put an iPhone on my “need to take another look at” list……

Friends, Republicans, Countrymen (and women)…….

If you know me, you’re really not going to believe this!!

There is now a valid reason on the table for me to vote for a republican candidate. This is, for what (in my so-so memory) will be the first time in my life, that I could even get close to picking someone from the dark side.

Yesterday, I had a short job doing the sound recording of an interview with a Republican presidential hopeful, the former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

So, was it merely my being in the same room that made me consider breaking my own record of never putting my stamp on the party of the elephant?

Ummm, no. In the past, I’ve been in the same room with Bush the (somewhat) wiser and Bush the (complete) idiot, and never had a thought in that direction.

What it was, was, that after taking a photo of him, and then one with him, I handed him my camera and asked him if he would take a photo of me.

This was for bragging rights.

That is, if somehow he were to be elected, I could show that picture and say “This photo of me was taken by the President Of The United States“.

So, that’s how Rudy got his red nose… Oops, I mean, my vote.

Just for the record Mr. Giuliani, don’t give up your day job just yet. Rudy (Look! We’re on a first name basis) had said while framing up the shot, that photography was a hobby of his.

Let’s just say that after looking at that photo he took, and taking into consideration that since it was a point and shoot type camera, composition was his only choice, it might not be a good career move.

Keeping it a hobby might not be a bad idea.

For the record (part II)…. He’s actually a very personable guy, and a bit taller than you might think from the press photos.

I could have a catch with him (that’s a baseball term, not a personals ad for a threeway).

By the way, don’t bother looking around for that snapshot of me.

I could show it to you, but then I’d have to kill you (if you didn’t die laughing first).

Peace out…..

Exactly who do you scream to? Or at?

Greetings, Sheeple of Earth. Does that ring in your nose bother you?

Here we go again (to borrow a line from Ronnie Raygun, or whoever his “Rove” was), led by our noses straight down the path to a brand new version of the Cold War.

The ‘net news today has several stories about how Russia has resumed the long-range flights of their nuke grade strategic bombers, for the first time since 1992 or so.

Senor Chavez in Venezuela recently began the process to remove term limits on his office, but Bush and Putin have chosen to use a bit more discrete method to keep their asses in the seat, by revving up the people. Sort of reminds me of the film “Starship Troopers”, where you have a constant barrage of news plants like this to keep the natives in terror. Scare them enough and they’ll follow you anywhere and ask no questions, as that might seem to constitute treason.

So what do we, The Sheeple, do? Who do we scream to, or at?

Can we draw from the experience of the Jews of pre-war Germany? At least now the trains will most likely be air conditioned, even if they don’t run on time.

More to be added soon.
