Vote! (BooHooHoo!)

Vote! (BooHooHoo!)

I’m glad someone else saw what I did. Oprah Winfrey had a show yesterday dedicated to voting – especially to young women voting (because young men voting? Bah! Who needs that?). She had Cameron Diaz in the studio and Drew Barrymore via satellite. Let me tell you. Both of them verged on hysterics as they […]

I have a choral rehearsal I can’t miss tonight and, as a result, I won’t be home until perhaps 10 PM. That means I won’t be able to blog the Presidential Debate live tonight. I will blog what I hear on the radio as I drive home and what I se when I get back, […]

I just upgraded to Thunderbird 0.8. I’ve been running 0.7 for a little while now and I’m very happy with it. Except now I have a problem I can’t solve. Thunderbird won’t pick up my e-mail. I click on the “Get Mail” button, and the various other options and nothing happens. No hit to my […]

Worst. Song. Ever.

Worst. Song. Ever.

I need all of you Led Zeppelin fans out there to sit down. Please. “The Battle of Evermore” is easily the worst song I have ever heard. Ever. [Ever, ever?? - ed Ever, ever.] It has lyrics that make “Macarthur Park” read like Shakespeake. What’s that? You don’t believe me? The apples of the valley […]

The First Rule: Make No Fun?

Nicole Griffin of Potomac Ponderings has decided to try not to make fun of John Kerry in this post. UNfortunately, she tried to analyze John Kerry’s most famous incoherency on Iraq where he said he voted for the 87 billion dollar funding bill before he voted against it. Bad choice, Nicole. That’s like walking into […]

The George Soros 2004 Tour!

This strikes me as very, very good news. George Soros has already dumped 18 million dollars – at a minimum – into getting George Bush out of office. What has he gotten for his money? Well, an 8-point Bush lead going into the debates. Now, the Big Dog himself is going out to hunt. Soros […]

Maybe you’ve seen me mention The Iron Blog a time or three. Here’s the deal. In the beginning The Chairman read blog debates. But the debates were without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the Blogosphere. So the Chairman said, “Let there be an adjudicated debate forum” and there was The […]

Foreigners Love Kerry

Foreigners Love Kerry

And I could care less. It’s not so much that people around the world love Kerry, though. It’s that they hate Bush. And is because of his politics? Heh. Guess again. Sen. John F. Kerry appears to be the runaway favorite abroad, even though few people outside the United States know much about the Massachusetts […]

Former Vice President and current loon Al Gore has decided to give John Kerry advice on how to beat the President in the coming debates. Here’s the sum total of his advice: My advice to John Kerry is simple: be prepared for the toughest debates of your career. While George Bush’s campaign has made “lowering […]

Jonah Goldberg has a great bit in The Corner today. One more for the how liberals seem themselves file. What I love about these explanations (We good. They bad. They simple. We complex.) is that they are so dualistic and simplistic in their us-versus-them-ness at the same time they righteously denounce that kind of thinking. […]
