Porn for Women

Thanks to all that came by the blog yesterday. It was the most web traffic on a single day ever for AAW. Sucks that it had to be about the DBT/Isbell split, but I do appreciate the kind emails and comments regarding the post. Most everybody seems to be looking forward to showing both bands much continued love and that's, really, all that I can ask for. You Guys Rock!

In the meantime, I've got to come up with a new banner. I'm using the old ABAAC release banner for the time being. I have some idea's but it is going to take a while for me to put something together (stupid paying job, getting in the way of my blog). If anybody wants to whip up a DBT banner and send it to me, please do. If I use your banner I'll include a link to your site with the banner. You can reach me at alabamaasswhuppin@att.net

Since I am pressed for time today, I thought I'd put up a relatively easy post. What kind of news is easy to find? News about Conservative ineptitude, Bush trying to blow up EVERYTHING, Conservative liars, Conservative zealots.... you know, just your average teenage party type of news.

First, Mr. Blows-Shit-Up-A-Lot

Plug it in, fire it up, Mr. President:

"Credit Ford Motor Co. CEO Alan Mulally with saving the leader of the free world from self-immolation.

Mulally told journalists at the New York auto show that he intervened to prevent President Bush from plugging an electrical cord into the hydrogen tank of Ford's hydrogen-electric plug-in hybrid at the White House last week. Ford wanted to give the Commander-in-Chief an actual demonstration of the innovative vehicle, so the automaker arranged for an electrical outlet to be installed on the South Lawn and ran a charging cord to the hybrid. However, as Mulally followed Bush out to the car, he noticed someone had left the cord lying at the rear of the vehicle, near the fuel tank.

'I just thought, 'Oh my goodness!' So, I started walking faster, and the President walked faster and he got to the cord before I did. I violated all the protocols. I touched the President. I grabbed his arm and I moved him up to the front,' Mulally said. 'I wanted the president to make sure he plugged into the electricity, not into the hydrogen This is all off the record, right?'"

Conservatives are lying? Their mouths must be moving.

Krugman: 'Right-wing noise machine' reverts to its 'little lies' roots

The "right-wing noise machine" has returned to its roots, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman argues in Monday's paper, as "little lies" that were in vogue before the attacks of 9/11 have sprouted up again, aided in large part by media outlets friendly to the Bush Administration.

Krugman believes that there is a "political lesson I don't think has sunk in: the power of the Little Lie -- the small accusation invented out of thin air, followed by another, and another, and another. Little Lies aren't meant to have staying power. Instead, they create a sort of background hum, a sense that the person facing all these accusations must have done something wrong."

"The Clinton years were a parade of fake scandals: Whitewater, Troopergate, Travelgate, Filegate, Christmas-card-gate," Krugman continues. "Each pseudoscandal got headlines, air time and finger-wagging from the talking heads. The eventual discovery in each case, that there was no there there, if reported at all, received far less attention. The effect was to make an administration that was, in fact, pretty honest and well run -- especially compared with its successor -- seem mired in scandal."

"Even in the post-9/11 environment, little lies never went away. In particular, promoting little lies seems to have been one of the main things U.S. attorneys, as loyal Bushies, were expected to do," Krugman writes. "For example, David Iglesias, the U.S. attorney in New Mexico, appears to have been fired because he wouldn't bring unwarranted charges of voter fraud."

However, Krugman adds, even though "the GOP's reversion to the Little Lie technique is a symptom of political weakness, of a party reduced to trivial smears because it has nothing else to offer," it "will remain effective -- and the U.S. political scene will remain ugly -- as long as many people in the news media keep playing along

Christian law school 'has had no better friend than the Bush administration'

The Pat Robertson-founded Regent University School of Law has come under the media's spotlight in recent days, as one of its graduates, Monica Goodling, has been placed at the center of the debate over the firing of U.S. attorneys, according to the Boston Globe.

Many are finding that Regent's influence and alumni placements in the current administration outsize its academic record and credentials.

"Regent University School of Law, founded by televangelist Pat Robertson to provide 'Christian leadership to change the world,' has worked hard in its two-decade history to upgrade its reputation," writes Globe staff writer Charlie Savage, "fighting past years when a majority of its graduates couldn't pass the bar exam and leading up to recent victories over Ivy League teams in national law student competitions."

Savage continues, "But even in its darker days, Regent has had no better friend than the Bush administration. Graduates of the law school have been among the most influential of the more than 150 Regent University alumni hired to federal government positions since President Bush took office in 2001, according to a university website."

GOP-issued laptops now a White House headache:
"WASHINGTON — When Karl Rove and his top deputies arrived at the White House in 2001, the Republican National Committee provided them with laptop computers and other communication devices to be used alongside their government-issued equipment.

The back-channel e-mail and paging system, paid for and maintained by the RNC, was designed to avoid charges that had vexed the Clinton White House — that federal resources were being used inappropriately for political campaign purposes.

Now, that dual computer system is creating new embarrassment and legal headaches for the White House, the Republican Party and Rove's once-vaunted White House operation.

Democrats say evidence suggests the RNC e-mail system was used for political and government policy matters in violation of federal record preservation and disclosure rules. "

Heil, motherfuckers. Heil, indeed. Remember when the U.S.A. was a representative democracy? 'Member? Good times, good times.

Professor who criticized Bush added to terrorist 'no-fly' list:

"A top Constitutional scholar from Princeton who gave a televised speech that slammed President George W. Bush's executive overreach recently learned that he had been added to the Transportation Security Administration's terrorist watch list. He shared his experience this weekend at the law blog Balkinization.

Walter F. Murphy, the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Emeritus, at Princeton University, attempted to check his luggage at the curbside in Albuquerque before boarding a plane to Newark, New Jersey. Murphy was told he could not use the service.

'I was denied a boarding pass because I was on the Terrorist Watch list,' he said.

When inquiring with a clerk why he was on the list, Murphy was asked if he had participated in any peace marches.

'We ban a lot of people from flying because of that,' a clerk said.

Murphy then explained that he had not marched, but had 'in September, 2006, given a lecture at Princeton, televised and put on the Web, highly critical of George Bush for his many violations of the Constitution.'

The clerk responded, 'That'll do it.'

Murphy was allowed to board the plane, but was warned that his luggage would be 'ransacked.' On his return trip, his luggage was lost."
