Panties on your Head

For the past couple of years I've wondered aloud to all who would listen why the U.S. can't put a federal program in place that tackles the energy crisis they same way JFK lead the nation to the moon. JFK said "10 years... moon bitches!". Less than 10 years later we're bouncing around on that great cheese ball in the sky.

We should be able to do the same thing with alternative energy. 10 years, no more oil.

Here's Obama last week:

Obama reaching out to white working class :

Increase funding for a host of domestic programs, including a 10-year, $150 billion 'Apollo-style program' to develop new energy sources."

Seriously, I want that V.P. slot.


McCain's entire campaign strategy: "I know you are but what am I"?

McCain Adviser Holtz-Eakin Ludicrously Asserts Obama Would Be A Third Bush Term


His policy position is ripped off from Bush.

"Mars Bitches!"

'Martian Chronicles' inspire McCain to put a man on Mars:


Health care plan:

Gotta be hot! Can't be givin' them dehydrated babies any luke-warm water.


Republican political discourse. As stupid as ever. You'd think this came from The Onion.

Rep. Rohrabacher On Using Women's Panties For Torture :

"WASHINGTON — Rep. Dana Rohrabacher on Wednesday dismissed the idea that taunting terrorism suspects with women's panties is a form of torture.

In a debate about detainee treatment at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the California Republican cited panties eight times, arguing that making suspected terrorists wear women's underwear on their heads isn't demeaning and degrading enough to be called torture.

'You're suggesting that the behavior of, what, panties on his head ... is unacceptable interrogation technique for a man who was involved in a conspiracy to kill tens of thousands of Americans?' Rohrabacher asked during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing."

"Some interrogation tactics used _ even if not torture _ might not be pleasant, Rohrabacher said. 'I mean, OK, describing his mother and sister as whores, that's certainly not a nice thing to do,' he said."

Bill Moyers, National Treasure.

He destroys O'Lielly's minion.

Fox News Producer Ambushes Bill Moyers; Gets Taste Of His Own Medicine:

"I think this is my favorite piece of video footage since Jon Stewart told off Tucker Carlson on Crossfire. Seriously, watch it again and again, it just gets better.

At the National Conference for Media Reform, Bill O’Reilly producer Porter Barry ambushes journalist Bill Moyers and asks him why he won’t appear on The O’Reilly Factor. Moyers, a class act to the last, makes Barry look like the small and petty man he is. But the joke is on Barry, because other journalists, including Uptake correspondent Noah Kunin, who got this raw footage, turned tables on ol’ Porter and gave him a little taste of the FOX News-style ambush journalism. I don’t think he liked it much."

More Moyers with a dash of Rather.

Rather, Moyers address 'crisis of journalism':

"'America's biggest, most important news organizations have, over the past 25 years, fallen prey to merger after merger, acquisition after acquisition... to the point where they are, now, tiny parts of immeasurably larger corporate entities — entities whose primary business often has nothing to do with news,' Rather said."

I would pay good money for this kind of adventure.

Stranded divers chase off Komodo dragon on island:

"JAKARTA, Indonesia - Scuba divers swept away in strong currents survived 12 hours in shark-infested waters before scrambling onto a remote Indonesian island where they faced yet another threat: a Komodo dragon."
