ATLANTA! ATLANTA! ATLANTA! What did the Republican leadership know and when did they know it?

They were warned that there would be an attack of snow and ice and chose to disregard it leading to millions of people's lives being disrupted, illnesses, and deaths. Responsibility must be placed upon the heads of those in charge. I would suggest an investigative committee charged with justifying a guilty verdict to be formed immediately.

I have spent all day trying to figure out what that statement

"I'll break you in half. Like a boy." truly means. Please allow me to say that if this guy lived in meighborhood, former FBI agent or not, my children would be allowed nowhere near him or his home given that he even made that statement. But is he implying "just" violence or violence/perversity? Use your imagination...right?

Years ago, I chaired a committee and we had this nutjob lady who was quite possibly the most argumentative person with whom I have ever had to deal personally. She was getting out of hand - quite unruly - and I politely (no, REALLY!) asked her if she could restrain herself. Her response unhesitatingly was, "Suck my dick!"

I stood there in stunned silence for what must have seemed like an eternity in front of a now-hushed room. And then I asked her, "What does that even MEAN?" Everyone else burst out laughing and she of course, started really haranguing me. But the peals of laughter just drowned her out.

I felt the same way as I had that night when I heard the Congressman's epithet directed at that reporter. Weird, eh?

YUCK! all the way around...

"That's Entertainment"

When Limbaugh calls a law student a 'slut' or Beck calls the President a 'racist' or that turd-from South Carolina Kincannon calls Nancy Pelosi a four-letter word beginning with "c", the RW machine responds by "distancing" itself from the offending statements by saying that these are "Entertainers" and not representative of the political establishment.

No folks, they are not Entertainers.

These are entertainers:Judy Garland, Bob Hope, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Simon and Garfunkle, Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson, Sean Connery, Ella Fitzgerald, Diana Ross, Andy Williams, Lawrence Welk, Jean-Pierre Rampal...these are Entertainers. They bring artistry, talent, rehearsal, special gift, and a host of attributes to the stage, the screen, or the concert hall. The fact that a hateful, rambunctiously obnoxious individual can spew forth on the radio, TeeVee, or Internet does not qualify them as Entertainers. It qualifies them as Anarchists.

For that is what they are: they profess to long to blow up the existing structure of the Union and create some Nation-State of crypto-fascism. Two points need to be elucidated: first, they really do not want this to occur because it would render them jobless and second, the resultant State, should it actually come to fruition would be politically cannibalistic in the extreme. To the second point, observe how what we on the Left would call minute differences among these RWers cause them to become apoplectic with respect to each other. Pseudo-revolutionaries like Savage fight with each other mercilessly, turning the guns upon each other in that wonderful Right Wing circular firing squad which we have come to enjoy.

So far, we have managed to avert all-out crisis. Woe betide us if this crowd ever really got its act together.

This Smerconish column is worth a read...


About (probably/possibly) why Smerconish lost his ability to interview Christie which he had done several times previously. Not uninteresting and demonstrates, once again, the pettiness of the Governor.

I have somewhat significant connections to two of the 'good guys' in this NJ scandal...

they alway plays cards close to the vest or blouse, were on top of this a long time ago and are now deeply involved. If anything kind of breaks out of the bastion of secrecy, I'll let you all know here. Just don't tell anyone else who told you...it's just among us.

49ers are getting hosed by the refs...

I've never seen anything quite like it. It would be as if President Obama were before Darrell Issa's committee.

Hey Republicans...

The answer to your rhetorical "question" is that she, that is the Mayor of Hoboken, didn't say anything before because she was rightfully afraid to. It's just that simple.

My favorite short joke of all time:

This idiot guy takes his girlfriend to her door. He says to her, "Hey baby, how about a goodnight fuck?" She replies, "OK...goodnight, fuck."

It's "goodnight fuck" to the tinhorn-Mussolini crowd in Jersey. It really was amateur hour there.
