MY FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES

MY FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES
Well, ok ‘friend’ may be a bit hasty. But I’ve filed the application and the JCN clerk’s office said all my papers were in order and I would hear back from them.

Although, that was a year and a half ago.

But here’s his cool photo spread on the protestors.

WOE IS ME

WOE IS ME

When I first started blogging, actually in my very first post, I confessed that “Now that I’ve jumped on, blogging is officially a bandwagon! Fortunately, if my history is any indication (joined the Seinfeld and Spice Girl Power craze in 1997, shortly before the end) that also means it’s almost over.”

Once again, my late term trend following has ended a good thing.

Two weekends ago, the USA network ran an eight-hour marathon of ‘Monk.’ After hour four I was hooked. I taped as many episodes as I could find and then I put in a request for Season 1 on Netflix.

But now the show is about to be retooled. Straight-talking Sharona (and I suppose her son) are out and the producers are looking for “a world-weary but attractive thirtysomething widow who works as a bartender.”

Shark, meet jump.

Monk doesn’t drink, he’s definitely not going to be chilling in a bar and picking up bartenders.

He needs someone to hand him wipes and separate his food.

He needs Sharona. Mmpph.

WHAT IF IT WERE YOUR CHILD

WHAT IF IT WERE YOUR CHILD

I saw an ad yesterday playing Dick Cheney’s coming out speech.

The voiceover says something like “A father speaks from the heart” and then plays Cheney talking about his lesbian daughter.

After Cheney says “freedom means freedom for everyone”

The voiceover says: “Exactly. What if it were your child, Mr. President?”

Ouch.

Things that make you go…

Things that make you go…

Hmmm. Scott writes that:

“Like I mentioned in my last post, I finagled my way onto the floor, a bit beyond the boudaries of my credentials. I simply couldn’t take watching the event from the portable low-volume TV up in the then-desolate Radio Row.”

Yet just yesterday the secret service claimed that they “have an obligation to protect these people,” said a Justice Department official requesting anonymity. “Any law enforcement efforts are designed to enforce the safety of convention-goers.”

So, where the hell was security?

Oh, here they are.

QUOTE OF TOMORROW

QUOTE OF TOMORROW

“We are Americans first, Americans last, and Americans always. Let us argue our differences, but remember, we are not enemies, we are comrades in a war against a real enemy, and take courage from the knowledge that our military superiority is matched only by our ideals and our incomperable love for them.”
-John McCain

via random site I blogsurfed to

Man, he’s good. Now let’s hope the Bushies listen: “let us argue our differences…remember we are not enemies!”

Please stop knocking on our doors, arresting us for wearing T-shirts, interrogating our teens for painting pictures, indicting cops for making off-colour jokes, redacting the words of the Supreme Court.

We are not the enemy. We are Americans.

Allegations that he is gay may have motivated his decision.

THE FIX WAS IN

THE FIX WAS IN

“I got a young man named George W. Bush into the Texas Air Guard – and I’m ashamed.”
—Former Texas Lt. Gov Ben Barnes

Play clip.

But that’s not all, reportedly Bush used his pull as Texas Governor to keep Barnes quiet.

But, oh yeah, the media is liberal and wants Kerry to win.
