OK, I think what we all need to do here is pick a buddy, so that if your buddy mysteriously disappears in the middle of the night, we’ll all know that the bushies declared them to be subversives, and took them away.  I’m not exactly sure what to do after that, though.  I mean, it aint like you can report it to the police.  But at least we’ll know.

I reckon dubya will sign his torture bill today. Maybe we can get them to declare September 29th a national holiday, in honor of the occasion. Torture, of course, is bad (seems odd to have to actually say that; somewhere along the way, being in favor of peace, civil rights, and the rule of law became subversive), but the most horrible thing to come out of this is the suspension of habeas corpus. To be allowed to imprison somebody without ever bringing charges, and with no hope for judicial review is so vile, so repugnant, so — yes — anti-American that it is beyond words.

Happy Birthday Open Thread

Please join me in wishing a happy birthday to Marc Maron today. :cake:

I invite everyone (and that includes you, too, lurkers) to head on over to the photo pages, find a picture you think Marc will like (there are some nice pix there – check out the “whatever” section, if nothing else), click on the eCard button – which looks like this: but that isn’t the actual button.  You have to go pick out a photo first, and then click the button – and send Marc your birthday wishes, so he knows the Seditionists are thinking of him today. If you don’t find something you like, feel free to register and upload a photo of you own. You should be able to use marc AT marcmaron DOT com to send him a happy happy.

Well, happy days are here again.  Yes, you can once again bring your toothpaste and hair gel on the plane with you. Makes me want to go out and fly somewhere.  Enjoy your flights (or whatever else you care to do) today.

Monday Open Thread

Lots to do by midnight tonight (not to mention the rest of the week, but today’s gonna be difficult enough to get through w/o getting ahead of myself).  Nice to see Bill Clinton all intelligent and articulate yesterday, wasn’t it?  There was a time when that would be described as “presidential,” but not any more.  Now presidential means arrogant and ignorant (and that’s being pretty kind).  Oh well, maybe someday we’ll get another president I can not be ashamed of – whether I agree with him (or her) or not.  In the meantime, though, I guess I’d better get busy, on the odd chance that the end times won’t get here before my savings account runs out.  Have a good Monday.

Sunday Boobleheads

Well, let’s start with Fux News, which I ordinarily wouldn’t recommend to anybody, but (as everybody here knows) today is the day that Bill Clinton kicks the crap out of that weaselface little prick, Chris Wallace, on Fux News Sunday. No doubt you’ve already read the transcript at Think Progress, but it ought to be a lot of fun watching Bubba wipe that smirk off his greasy little piece of shit face. Mike Wallace must kick himself in the ass for letting Mrs. Wallace breast feed that little schmuck until he was 23.

Ah, Saturday, when my mind turns to thoughts of…well, death, actually.  My brain has been somewhat obsessed with it lately.  I dunno if it’s having el diablo sulfurado for president,  seeing my country embrace torture, humiliation, and death (not necessarliy in that order), or just that I have so much shit to do that death seems like a good way to get some friggin’ sleep.  But, no rest for the weary here, so I guess I better get busy procrastinating.  You still have another chance to catch Marc at the CanWest ComedyFest if you’re up that way.  Enjoy.

Hey, looks like a big weekend ahead.  First, Marc’s scheduled to be on Sam Seder’s show, and then of course all of you out in the general vicinity of Vancouver get the chance to see Marc and a lot of other comedians at the CanWest ComedyFest, plus we can all go out and torture somebody, now that tough-talkin’ dubya and maverick mister principles John McCain have come to the glorious “compromise” (this was one of Uncle Karl’s finest moments: a fake “dispute” between John “Bend Over” McCain and the White House that allowed both of them to get what they wanted – dubya looks “tough,” McCain looks “independent,” and the Democrats look like impotent surrender monkeys).  And Happy 55th Birthday to Mark Riley.  :cake:

Not much to say this morning, except if you’re out there in the vicinity of Vancouver, you should head out to the CanWest ComedyFest over the next few days to see the likes of Marc Maron and Janeane Garafalo.  And nobody could really blame you if you decided to just stay up there.  In fact, if you set up a safe house, let me know; I’ll be along shortly.
