"It's morning in America, Hackenbush, and you work the nightshift."

Saturday, September 13, 2003

Better late then never for this:

"I was recently reading an interview with John Holmstrom, the founder and publisher of _Punk_ magazine and, not so amazingly when you think about, suggested that Johnny Cash was the true father of Punk rock.  He's paraphrased, right here on page 44 of this month's Juxtapoz:  '...the early rockabilly guys were quite righteous, pioneering punk rockers.  Think Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, even Johnny Cash in their Sun Studio glory days, dressed in jean, leather, and blue suede shoes. Do you think any country goober today could get a way with a song as brutal as 'Folsolm Prison Blues' or come up with lyrics remotely as haunting as "I shot a man in Reno/Just to watch him die"?  Now tell me that ain't a punk rock anthem.'"

Rest in peace, Johnny.

Today's Non Sequitur

"I remember thinking, very clearly, that this wouldn't've happened if Clinton were in office. For all his failings, he was a stronger president, and seems to have had a firm grasp on a number of dangerous situations that Bush has been unable to handle. I wonder if things that went ignored by the Bush Administration, the Clinton Administration would have paid attention to. I don't know, and I'll never know, and neither will anyone else -- but my guts believe it."
9/11, Laura JV, September 10, 2003

For what it's worth, that's what I thought, too.

It is what I still think.

"But it has bothered me, not the fight – I have those all the time – but why the Clinton admin was able to keep us safe or, when not, at least find and convict the criminoid sociopaths, thereby creating a sense of security, and bush junta can't, thereby scaring the bejeezus out of everyone. I've thought this for a long time, but today for your amusement and my therapy, I've decided to write it down:"

"This would probably be a nonstory had Rep. Darrell Issa not written the checks that got the recall on the ballot. And if this is a populist revolt, just what is its message? Replacing Davis with Cruz Bustamante or Tom McClintock -- or even Wilson in Schwarzenegger's body -- isn't going to address the state's fiscal and governmental problems. There's a good chance the recall will leave things in worse shape.

"The campaign itself is a diversion from California's problems. And unless the next governor wins this crapshoot with a persuasive vote, he or she is likely to have even less legitimacy than Davis has now. It also will leave him even more beholden to one or more of the interest groups that are funding the three major candidates.

"So what are we doing? What offense worthy of recall did Davis commit that he hadn't committed long before California re-elected him less than a year ago? Elections are supposed to be about more than rewarding or punishing politicians."
Peter Schrag: In the recall, are we revolting against ourselves?, by Peter Schrag, Sacramento Bee, September 10, 2003

I'm glad I'm not the only one wondering about this stuff.

"'I admire Maria a lot because of all her Kennedy family, but not enough to vote for him,' Ms. Olivares said. 'He doesn't have a humane attitude toward immigrants. We're a little afraid that he's going to change things and hurt us.'"
Schwarzenegger's Achilles' Heel: Women, by Katharine !. Seelye with John M. Broder, NY Times, September 8, 2003

Should be "Schwarzenegger's Achilles' Heel: His Attitude Toward and History With Women".

Women are never the whole problem. And, remember, you heard it here first!

"Naturally, George doesn’t want people remembering that Osama bin Laden was the actual author of the 9/11 terrorism. His first-term agenda called for picking a fight with Saddam Hussein, not bin Laden. That way George could one-up his dad, chalk up an easy victory (Bush & Co. really did expect that), possibly use Iraq’s resources to help defray the cost of the war, and get himself re-elected. Meanwhile, with everyone distracted by the war, he’d loot the national economy on behalf of his rich backers."

Geeze, I couldn't have said it better moi-meme.

"DON'T get married without acquiring some kitchen skills. Nick seems to have a few, but in a scene that is destined to become a reality show classic, Jessica shows her lack thereof.

"Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish?" she asks Nick, who is trying to watch sports on TV. "I know it's tuna. But it says chicken. By the sea."

There is an incredibly long, painful silence while Nick mulls her question, possibly also wondering whether it's too late to get an annulment.

Jessica stammers further, "Is that stupid? Why is (it) called chicken by the sea? Or of the sea?"

Nick can only manage an aggrieved sigh: "You act like you've never had tuna before." "

Single-Minded: Nick and Jessica show us exactly how to mess up a marriage, Jane Ganahl, Sept. 7 2003, in the SF Chronicle

I don't watch much TV (aside from SpongeBob Squarepants) but I might have to tune into this show, "Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica" (he's from 98 Degrees, she's some kind of pop singer). I love finding out that beautiful famous people are as dumb as a bag of hammers. Chicken By the Sea. Yeah.

"LOS ANGELES, Sept. 7 — Race and politics, two of the unsolvable riddles of California life, collided this morning at the corner of Cesar Chavez Avenue and Indiana Street during the Mexican Independence Day parade.

"Arnold Schwarzenegger, who until two days ago was to be the grand marshal, was unceremoniously dumped when organizers rescinded his invitation. Instead, it was Gov. Gray Davis in attendance, the hero of the moment in the Latino community for having signed a bill on Friday that gives illegal immigrants the right to hold driver's licenses.

"Parade organizers said Democratic politicians had put pressure on them to drop Mr. Schwarzenegger, but Mr. Davis's camp denied any involvement.

"'Absolutely not,' said Peter Ragone, the governor's spokesman. 'We had no contact with anyone.'

"Today's contretemps capped a week of racial pandering and wedge-issue politics in the California recall race that left none of the top candidates unstained.

"Mr. Davis was tagged by his critics as a toady to Latinos and the far left when he signed the driver's license bill. Only a few months ago, before the threat of his recall, Mr. Davis vetoed the bill because, he said, it lacked safeguards to stop criminals or terrorists from changing their identities by acquiring a California license. It does not require a background investigation and other measures Mr. Davis requested.

"'I am honored to have signed it,' Mr. Davis said today.

"Lt. Gov. Cruz M. Bustamante, who has run on the platform that the governor should not be recalled, but that if Mr. Davis is recalled he is the best choice to replace him, opened the ethnic can of worms last Sunday, when he accused Mr. Schwarzenegger, an immigrant from Austria, of being anti-immigrant.

"Mr. Bustamante, the grandson of Mexican immigrants and the first Latino elected to statewide office in California in a century, found himself accused of being a hypocrite. As a state assemblyman in 1993, he voted to deny driver's licenses to illegal immigrants, who had held the privilege for decades.

"And Mr. Bustamante was pilloried for exploiting the campaign finance laws to accept $1.5 million from an Indian tribe that runs a casino."
Ethnic Issues in California Recall Play Out at Latino Parade, by Charlie LeDuff, NY Times, September 8, 2003 (ID: hackenbush PW: hackenblog or vice versa)

You can say a lot of things about California, but you can never say it's dull.

And it's not easy being a California girl these days, I must say.

Oh, and click here for more Schwarzenegger fun!

From the bottom of my liberal heart, I wish to thank Senators Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer for whatever they did on behalf of keeping the judicary sane to defeat the Estrada nomination. Yay!
