The Birth of Cooley

Happy Birthday, Mike Cooley of the Drive-by Truckers!

Two years ago today was one of the most brutal plane rides I've ever taken.


Yeah, why the hell wasn't this done a year ago... or 2 years ago... or 6 years ago.....

Bin Laden by Election Day? New push: The Swamp:

"'Both sources say those in the intelligence community and on Capitol Hill are raising questions about the political intent of this new aggressive stance,'' NPR reports. 'The question is,' said one of the sources, 'Why wasn't this done a year ago?'"

Somebody lied and intimidated for someone hopped up on goofballs.

Let's see.... drugs.... stolen from a charity.... OD cover-up.... intimidation.... lies upon lies....

Party at MCCAIN's

Whistleblower breaks 15-year silence to allege McCain hid wife's drug abuse:

"Cindy McCain's addiction to prescription painkillers emerged into public view 14 years ago with a well-orchestrated PR campaign designed to preserve her husband's political future.

Aside from a lengthy contemporary investigation from Phoenix's alternative weekly and occasional mentions since then, the addiction back-story -- including ample questions about what John McCain knew, when he knew it and questions over whether he was complicit in the cover-up -- has gone largely untold. Until now.

Tom Gosinski, a former employee of the medical-aid charity Cindy McCain used as personal supplier of Percocet and Vicodin, is speaking out publicly for the first time."


Propaganda much? Liberal media my ass.

Swing-State newspapers distribute 'terror' videos:

"A 60-minute DVD, titled 'Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West,' is being distributed in millions of newspapers across the country this week primarily in swing states through an advertising purchase by a shadowy group called the Clarion Fund."

Steal elections much?

Editorial - Mississippi’s Ballot Trick - Editorial -

"Mississippi’s governor, Haley Barbour, and its secretary of state have come up with a particularly cynical dirty trick for the November election. Let’s call it: “Where’s the Senate race?”

Defying state law, they have decided to hide a hard-fought race for the United States Senate at the bottom of the ballot, where they clearly are hoping some voters will overlook it. Their proposed design is not only illegal. It shows a deep contempt for Mississippi’s voters.

Republicans have long had a lock on the state’s two Senate seats. But this year, former Gov. Ronnie Musgrove, a Democrat, has been running close to Senator Roger Wicker, a Republican, in the polls. Mr. Wicker was appointed to the seat by Governor Barbour in late December after Trent Lott stepped down."

Arizona Election Integrity Advocate Arrested While Observing Hand-Count:

"Pima County (Tucson), Arizona Election Integrity advocate and expert John Brakey was arrested last night while performing his job as an election supervisor, on behalf of both the Democratic and Libertarian parties, during a post-election hand-count audit of ballots.

Brakey becomes the latest in a growing string of EI advocates to be arrested and/or barred from observing (Brakey was lucky enough to merit both 'honors' apparently) while attempting to assure accuracy, fairness, and transparency in voting and in the reporting of election results on behalf of citizens.

Even film critics are getting in on the action.

Roger Ebert on Sarah Palin: The American Idol candidate :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Other Views:

"I think I might be able to explain some of Sarah Palin's appeal. She's the 'American Idol' candidate. Consider. What defines an 'American Idol' finalist? They're good-looking, work well on television, have a sunny personality, are fierce competitors, and so talented, why, they're darned near the real thing. There's a reason 'American Idol' gets such high ratings. People identify with the contestants. They think, Hey, that could be me up there on that show!

My problem is, I don't want to be up there. I don't want a vice president who is darned near good enough. I want a vice president who is better, wiser, well-traveled, has met world leaders, who three months ago had an opinion on Iraq. Someone who doesn't repeat bald- faced lies about earmarks and the Bridge to Nowhere. Someone who doesn't appoint Alaskan politicians to 'study' global warming, because, hello! It has been studied. The returns are convincing enough that John McCain and Barack Obama are darned near in agreement."

I so love karma...

This is a hell of a fall.

Car-burglary suspect vaults wall, falls to his death on Telegraph Hill:

"(09-11) 12:29 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- A car-burglary suspect fell to his death early today after he climbed over a wall on San Francisco's Telegraph Hill while trying to flee from police, apparently unaware that on the other side of the wall was a 200-foot cliff, authorities said."

Tattoo You.
