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

Friday, October 14, 2005

"Trudeau, obviously, has never been a Bush supporter, and he was right to point out what was motivating a lot of people to vote for Bush (though Mike's blind slide into Republicanism still boggles me; Trudeau has never been too good with believable character development.). Paul Krugman did the same thing in today's NY Times, indicating that formerly pro-administration reporters and editors are suddenly saying what he said five years ago: that Bush is a fabulist who surrounds himself with toadies who tell him what he wants to hear, not what he needs to hear.

"While I'm sure this won't penetrate the force field they've thrown up around themselves... Hey all you Bush supporters, how does it feel to be wrong. So very wrong. So absolutely positively wrongwrongwrongwrongwrong?

"I remember reading someone's blog a week or so ago, where they made the point that the Boomers, despite all their high-flown aspirations and supposed social consciences, have never truly been tested.

"Turns out it was a pop quiz."
Mr. Dan Kelly, October 14, 2005

...the Boomers, despite all their high-flown aspirations and supposed social consciences, have never truly been tested.

Which made punk the only real option in the 70s because the hippies didn't leave us anything else. So don't expect the next Boomer wave, the Geezer wave, to leave anything in its wake either. The only consolation is that when that wave is over, all the Boomers will be dead. So there IS something to look forward to.

Full disclosure: I was born in 1960, but never fit in.

"First, the big picture -- what do the conservatives really want? In a nutshell, they want all business investment and returns to savings to be tax-free, leaving only income from labor to tax. Unfortunately, the recent trend in real-world legislation is not to a pure wage tax, which would be bad enough, but to a bent system that subsidizes capital and advantages high-salary earners --the worst of all possible worlds in tax policy."
The Next Great Theft?, by Max B. Sawicky, TomPaine.com, October 13, 2005

Once we were wage slaves. Soon we will be tax slaves. Vote your Wallet and your Future. Vote Democrat.

"Google Inc. hopes to eclipse its success as a company by committing nearly $1 billion to help solve problems including poverty and environmental destruction.

"The Mountain View search engine formally unveiled its philanthropic plans Tuesday with the introduction of Google.org, an umbrella organization charged with making the world a better place."
The 1% Model, BuyBlue Blog, October 12, 2005

Maybe those Google ad are going to come back... Nah.

"Monkeys, on a whole, aren't very creepy. They're just sort of like very small, hairy, somewhat demented-looking children with tails. It's sort of unsettling, but they're easy enough to avoid.

"Strap a pair of wings on them? Now you're in trouble."
Mommy's Little Monsters -- Day Twelve: Flying Monkeys, by Rick Geerling, Dark, Bush Shining -- Horror, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Christ Knows What Else.

I knew there was a reason I keep reading this blog. Also see Kevin Melrose's discussion of, among many other fine werewolf films, the gay werewolf film, The Wolves of Kromer (which might drive me back to Netflix). Gay werewolf films... young people today. Sigh. Why, when I was young, we only had straight werewolf films to watch, and damn few of those, too.

"So Matthew, grow up, ok? You made a bad error of judgment but you were just a kid in '02/'03. But you're rapidly approaching the age when you need to take responsibility for your opinions. And it is outrageous that you, or anyone else who supported this war still clings, no matter how surreptiously in subordinate clauses and passive constructions, to the utterly dildo hallucination that there was any chance in hell something as insane as the invasion of Iraq could succeed."
There's No Fun With Analogies When Slaughter Is The Subject, Tristero, October 11, 2005

Oh, look! Tristero is guest blogging! And doing a bang-up job, too!

I can't remember who said it, but Matt Y really does need to get out of Beltway and write the sports page in a small town (it was classic, I wish I could remember who said it where). And soon, too, before his soul shrivels up inside him like a salt-drenched slug. Run, Matt, run! It's not too late!

EDIT 101205:

"That was videogame football in a college dorm. It literally couldn't have mattered any less. But now we have Josh Marshall and Matt Yglesias, among others, playing the same game with the decision to invade Iraq, something that mattered a whole hell of a fucking lot. I wonder, guys: rather than turning any discussion of the run-up to war into imaginary bullshit jam-session time, where everybody competes to craft fantastically elaborate sets of assumptions that WOULD HAVE justified invasion, do you think there's anything profitable to be gained by examining the mistake you made in the actual world? By evaluating, if I may use another football analogy, why you spent so much time beating up your own backfield, and so little trying to stop the run? Or why, as Tristero so bracingly notes, at this late stage in the game, the people who didn't make your giant, stupid mistake are still marginalized?"
Football analogies, by Sifu Tweety, The Poor Man Institute, October 12, 2005

"TO THE HONORABLE ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER: Pursuant to Section 11020, California Election Code, the undersigned registered qualified voters of the State of California, hereby give notice that we are the proponents of a recall petition and that we intend to seek your recall and removal from the office of Governor of the State of California, and to demand election of a successor in that office. The grounds for the recall are as follows: threatening public safety and welfare by grabbing funds from local governments and demoralizing public workers, failing in general to deal with state's major problems as they near crisis proportions, and dismantling public education in California by starving schools of necessary funds while protecting special interest groups of wealthy taxpayers. California should not be known as the state with poor schools, poor healthcare, and poor disaster readiness, all caused by a governor serving only the rich... "
RECALL SCHWARZENEGGER. For real. (Via Skippy) Go look.

Yay! I wouldn't be able to collect sigs, but I'd sure be willing to sign.

We need a millionaire behind this. Or a millionairess... what's Adrianna Huffington doing with all her money these days? I think she'd be great for this; she'd be doing it for the good of California. Wasn't that why that issa Issa was doing it to Gray Davis? But, then again, who cares why Adrianna would do it? As long as she does.

Hey, not only does she vote, she reads, too.
