Feel free to chit chat.

What did you do last week end? Anything good? Something to recommend?


Blogspot has a new section called the blog roll. It's a combination rss feed with site link. It's on the left side where the regular boring blogroll with standard links used to be.

Mo Governor Blunt to sign internet harrassment bill

It looks like Missouri may be the first state to outlaw cyberbullying- in reaction to the Megan Meirs suicide. I think this is very interesting and wonder how it will be enforced.

Mr Bold, what effect, if any, do you think this will have on craigslist? As you know, I have been harrassed on that site for going on 5 years now. My name, email address, phone number, home address and my picture have all been posted without my consent, along with many horrible comments about myself (all of which were false - if not incredible exaggerated, ie my history of catching things on fire)

Craig himself told me I should call the cops and report the abuse but I never did bc I didnt think it would have any effect and I also didnt want to "play along" by giving my hater(s) the attention they were so desparate for.

So, what do you think? Will this new bill have any effect on the amount of hateraid on CL??

Mr Bold adds 12:34 pm-

This is the Federal version of the bill:

I look into this S. City and give you more feedback later.

Mr. Bold 7:24 pm-

Well I'm still having trouble finding the Missouri version of the Federal proposal.

Basically though this makes harassment online a crime. I would imagine the kind of defamation you experienced S. City would certainly now fall under this law which could mean two years in prison.

What effect this will have on CL is largely unknown. I certainly think that publishing a person's name and phone number while bashing the victim would now be actionable. Bashing anonymous people or even those with monikers would still be in and not illegal.

If I read a legal scholar's take on this I'll provide a link.

Saturday Movie Blogging-Mongol

I'm about to head out and see this.

Mr. Bold adds 6/30/08-

This movie is definitely a big screen must see. The action sequences were well choreographed and never pushed the boundaries of plausibility.

Sergei Bodrov the director shot this on location in Mongolia. Without having been to Mongolia, I have to say this movie gets as close as you're likely to get without a passport.

Do you need a cause to get you through the week end?

How about stiffening Obama's spine against granting immunity for telecoms?

Call Obama's campaign here:

Cenk Uygur explains why getting Obama to stick by his original stance which was to support a filibuster against is important:

If you get inspired enough to call Obama's offices make sure you're nice. You will get a choice of categories to pick and #6 which is the general one is the appropriate one and then you will be connected to a live representative.

You should say something to the effect of "I understand that Obama is willing to grant immunity to telecoms for their role in Bush's warrantless spying program. Obama has since changed his position on this. Please tell him to uphold the rule of law and fight to remove the immunity provision from the FISA bill."

If you make the call, write a comment here and tell me how it went.

Things that made me mad and things that made me glad this week

First, This made me glad tho I expect you will disagree, Mr. Bold:

Now, I do realize too many children are killed accidentally each year by handguns and I think it is just awful. However, I have never known a criminal to consider the law when picking up a handgun. Taking handguns out of the hands of home owners only puts the home owner at a disadvantage to protect himself and his home. Or in my case, her home. I have 2 handguns myself - they are loaded and stashed in various locations in my home, along with my 9mm rifle. Paranoid? Maybe- but as a single woman living in the #1 most dangerous city in the USA, I am not taking any chances. Anyone who put their own personal safety into the hands of the govament is a damned fool, IMHO. Ban guns or dont ban guns, I am keeping mines.

Second, This made me absolutely livid yesterday:
This is the first Supreme Court decision I havent agreed with (as far as I have been paying attention, anyway) I have always held the highest regard for our highest court- but this here decision is just plain bullshit. Actually BANNING execution for pedophiles- rather than allowing each state to make its own decision- is an abuse of power in my opinion. Cruel and unusual punishment my ass. Executing an adult who rapes a child under 12 is just in my eyes- and I dont even have any children. I am just furious about this. Execution is appropriate for treason but not for raping an 8 year old child? Utter bullshit. Yes, I am very mad about this.

Lastly, I was thrilled to read this morning that Archibishop Burke is leaving St. Louis. Good riddance, mofo. Go make trouble somewhere else. You suck!

Mr Bold adds:

I've never been for banning handguns S. City. I'm for common sense regulation, but not an outright ban. In fact I don't know too many liberals who are for banning handguns outright. Making this a left/right issue only serves to help the nuts at the NRA (National Republican Association).

Regarding the SCOTUS decision about death for child rapists-

Hmm that's an interesting argument you make S. City using treason to overcome the punishment should be proportional to the crime point. However in almost all of the cases I read in U.S. history only the Rosenberg's seem to have been executed without being complicit in the killing of Americans.

You may be pissed off by the decision S. City, but I view it as victory for the boys in general population who will have no end of fun torturing and probably killing these guys.

And I'm glad to see Burke go as well. His zealotry didn't do the Catholic Church any good in St. Louis.

Cheney's office is STILL not sure if it's the Executive branch or not.

Conservatives so desperate to be right really come up with dumbest m*therf*cking arguments. Here is Cheney's lawyer David Addington looking dumb:

REP. STEVE COHEN (D-TN): Mr. Addington, what branch are we in?

ADDINGTON: Sir, perhaps the best that can be said is that the vice president belongs neither to the executive nor to the legislative branch, but is attached by the constitution to the latter. […]

COHEN: So he’s a member of the legislative branch?

ADDINGTON: No I said he’s attached to the latter.

So for those playing at home we have 4 branches of government again!

Cheney and his gang really do think we're a bunch of idiots.

Kitteh's favorite Carlin routine-

Monday, June 23, 2008

Hot Air gives us a two-fer-The Obama bash while putting words in a dead man's mouth.

I've been noticing that Conservatives seem to be forming a consensus that Carlin was a bitter old man on the blogosphere. While trying to find some high profile Conservatives really telling us how they feel about George Carlin I spotted this at Hot Air:

"...True to form, he told HuffPo a few months ago that he was intrigued by Obamania — partly because the sheeplike American public that made him a star would never embrace true Change unless it was dragged along, dimwittedly, by some liberal’s cult of personality...."

From Hot Air's "The obligatory “George Carlin dies at 71″ post.

This is the Huffington Post part referenced above:
Question: "Wow. Okay, so let me ask you this: You brought up the Obama thing, and you seemed to have done so sincerely and not with irony or being jaded. How do you view that as a phenomenon, even as one you don't want to belong to?"

Well, it's an exciting story to watch. What's exciting is that it doesn't happen in this country very often. There were moments in the history of the American people - and by the way, one of the reasons I got off the train of the American experience is I think - I'll get back to Obama in a minute - I think that human beings were given great gifts and had great potential and they squandered it all on goods, possession, power, territory and on a superstitious God that watches everything and controls. These things, I think, crippled the human animal to the extend that we never lived up to their potential. The same thing happened in this country. We were given great potential. We were given this great system of self-government, the best one that had been devised so far. And we've given it all up for gizmos, and goods, and toys and possessions, and - in this country - God, overlooking everything and spoiling everything.

So... there have been moments in this country when people have, leaders have emerged who were inspirational, and who could carry the people with them because — in order to effect change in their lives and experience as a group, they need to be led, and they need to believe in something and they need to believe in themselves, and they need to believe that they can change things. And they way that happens is through an inspirational leader. FDR was that, Franklin Roosevelt - he gave people something to believe in, and mainly it was themselves, that they could weather the storm, and he got them through the Depression and a fuckin' World War. So, these things happen and they're interesting to notice - I don't know how much overall meaning it has, I do respect what's going on as a true American phenomenon, this rising up of someone who - maybe, I don't know - has the quality to inspire people.

Carlin Huffington Post interview

Carlin compared Obama to FDr and Hot Air thinks this is calling people sheeple.

You really have to wonder what the fuck these Conservatives are smoking.

Kitteh reacts to word of Carlin's death.

Yeah me too too.

About this Obama broke his pledge on public financing nonsense...

I've heard that Obama's explanation about why he is foregoing taxpayer financing of his election is being called "lame" by MSM, but I totally got what he was saying. TPM has a quick hit just on how much the RNC is getting in funding:
TPM RNC Cash Advantage

They have a 50 million advantage over the DNC.

Don't let the whining distract you from the fact between the RNC and their 527 support network is swimming in cash and gaming the system as usual.

Tonight's Featured Artist-George Carlin

As everyone has heard by now George Carlin died yesterday at the age of 71 from heart failure. I knew he was getting up there but I was hoping for at least another 3 or 4 HBO specials out of him.

The first comedy routine I ever heard was the SnL variation of this one:

He gave me so many excuses not to like baseball.

There are some great retrospectives being written today on the blogosphere. One of the most definitive with lots of links is T Rex's post at the DailyKos:
T Rex's Diary at DKos

I hope you all go out tonight and have drink to his memory. When you do, think of this toast:

Here's to George Carlin,
The world has finally kicked your bucket
The worms have to come to collect their due
You gave us the courage to call bullshit,
and say a big fuck you while we did it too.

I'm going to miss you man. Thanks for the laughs.

I offer this as a way of Carlin doing "When the Saints Go Marching In".

Here's a Liberal talking like a Conservative-

I caught this on NYC's Craigslist RnR page and found it hysterical:

Let me explain why John McCain is a LOSER

Reply to:
Date: 2008-06-19, 10:09PM EDT

The main reason is because he was a POW.

Let's look at what a POW is. He is a soldier who FAILED AT HIS MISSION and BLEW IT and now is running for his life behind enemy lines. He is the one cowering in the bushes while Commie Vietnamese soldiers point rifles and do things to him only a dog should endure. He is the guy begging for his life, giving up TRADE SECRETS so a yellow penis does not enter his butt and sucking dick for brownie points so he can have a hot rice and noodle meal. He is the guy giving up his friends and fellow soldiers because he wants to LIVE, the guy the Commies are laughing at and wondering how far he will go.

John McCain could have done the honorable thing and TOOK HIS LIFE. Every Islamic suicide bomber is braver than John McCain. Every soldier who died in Vietnam in a hail of Commie bullets is braver than John McCain. Every pilot who went MIA in Vietnam is braver than John McCain. McCain got lost, separated, and GAVE IT UP to the Commies so he could live another day. He has not told HALF of what happened because the other half is degrading: possible homosexual acts for food and brownie points, possible secrets told and men dead because ambushes were set up from information he gave Commie generals, and possible anti-American acts and videos filmed by Commies for fun and profit. Who knows what McCain did to stay alive while his brave friends DIED in Vietnam?

POWs are COWARDS. And so is John McCain.

It hits all the buttons for Conservatives. It charges homosexuality, a lack of honor and bravery in a big ball of machismo laden prose.

Try it on a conservative and tell me how it works out.

The weather conditions that triggered the floods were the same as those in 1993: hot air from a ridge of high pressure on the East Coast colliding with cooler air from the West Coast, according to Ken Kunkel, interim director of the Illinois Water Survey."

Mr Bold adds:

This is really hard to accept. Watching Meet the Press with Tim Russert has been a morning ritual for almost 20 years now for me.

Whether you liked him or not, he was one of us-the ultimate political junkie.

A letter from Senator Clinton

via brownsox at DailyKos-

I wanted you to be one of the first to know: on Saturday, I will hold an event in Washington D.C. to thank everyone who has supported my campaign. Over the course of the last 16 months, I have been privileged and touched to witness the incredible dedication and sacrifice of so many people working for our campaign. Every minute you put into helping us win, every dollar you gave to keep up the fight meant more to me than I can ever possibly tell you.

On Saturday, I will extend my congratulations to Senator Obama and my support for his candidacy. This has been a long and hard-fought campaign, but as I have always said, my differences with Senator Obama are small compared to the differences we have with Senator McCain and the Republicans.

I have said throughout the campaign that I would strongly support Senator Obama if he were the Democratic Party's nominee, and I intend to deliver on that promise.

When I decided to run for president, I knew exactly why I was getting into this race: to work hard every day for the millions of Americans who need a voice in the White House.

I made you -- and everyone who supported me -- a promise: to stand up for our shared values and to never back down. I'm going to keep that promise today, tomorrow, and for the rest of my life.

I will be speaking on Saturday about how together we can rally the party behind Senator Obama. The stakes are too high and the task before us too important to do otherwise.

I know as I continue my lifelong work for a stronger America and a better world, I will turn to you for the support, the strength, and the commitment that you have shown me in the past 16 months. And I will always keep faith with the issues and causes that are important to you.

In the past few days, you have shown that support once again with hundreds of thousands of messages to the campaign, and again, I am touched by your thoughtfulness and kindness.

I can never possibly express my gratitude, so let me say simply, thank you.


Hillary Rodham Clinton

A letter from Senator Clinton

Wednesday, June 4, 2008

New blog announcement-

Big bad Boooooooob Barr is the new kid on the block.

What Now? Veepstakes?

Still within a day of Obama's clinching of the nomination, I am already feeling fatigued by the coverage and analysis of who may or may not get to be the running mate. Regardless of who the big winner is, it is my wish that Obama takes his time with the vetting process. Not simply because it takes time to ferret out the skeletons, but also because the political calculus this year is so much more complex than in cycles past. A protracted and deliberate selection process will also allow more time for any pro-Clinton bitterness to die down and more time for Obama to be his own story for a while.

I think it's too early to make any predictions or even have a short list, but I think there are many compelling possibilities out there. Here are some commonly mentioned name I'm not liking too much right now right now:

Hillary Clinton- I'm not a big fan of the so-called "Dream Ticket" idea. Yeah, Hillary exemplifies that vintage Clinton ability to weave the horse shit with the bull shit, but this otherwise admirable quality flies right in the face of the type of campaign Obama needs to run this fall. Mostly, though, I find her to be a tireless self-promoting phony with the power to energize the Republican base like no other Democrat this side of an Obama/Osama ticket.

John Edwards- I love John Edwards. He was my favorite horse in this race the moment Joe Biden dropped out. I think he would have been a formidable presidential candidate. However, as a veep candidate, it's hard to see the advantage of adding him to the ticket. It's probably not very fair to blame him for not carrying North Carolina when John Kerry topped the ticket, but the selection of a running mate is supposed to be about getting votes you otherwise might not get. I think Edwards brings a lot more to the table if he was running his own campaign, but I don't see that he adds too much as an Obama sidekick.

Gen. Wesley Clark- This is another name bandied about that just isn't getting my nipples too hard. The swiftboating of Kerry should have taught us that a cloak of military credentialism won't necessarily protect a Democrat from the "weak liberal" charge. Having NATO Supreme Allied Commander on your resume just isn't going to stop some Americans from believing your weak on terror and want the bad guys to win the moment you start talking sense about the war in Iraq. I'm also not too convinced that he has the requisite polish to perform well in debates and on the campaign trail (at least in comparison to the other potential veep candidates). Probably a good choice on the surface, but I'm not there yet with Clark.

Evan Bayh- Not a very charismatic or compelling candidate compared to the other selections. I don't see him helping Obama carry Indiana or getting him additional votes anywhere else for that matter. He was a high-profile Clinton supporter, but it's too soon to know how much fence mending needs to be done with the selection of a veep.

Kathleen Sebelius/Claire McCaskill- Any other year, I wouldn't worry at all about a female running mate. This just isn't any other year. As great as these selections might be, their choice this time out would pick all the wrong scabs amongst Clinton backers, for right or wrong. Also, McCaskill doesn't bring any more experience to the table than Obama, and I don't see her helping on the electoral math anywhere outside of Missouri. I have the same concerns about Sebelius, except that I don't think her addition would even turn her home state of Kansas blue.

Here are a few names I haven't heard mentioned all too often, but think they deserve more consideration:

Bill Richardson- This guy could be a great twofor selection for Obama. Not only would you be adding some foreign policy expertise and general experience to the ticket, his heritage might help solidify support amongst Latinos and help earn votes in the west and southwest.

Joe Biden- The best foreign policy selection available. Not because he's served on the right committees in the Senate, but because he has (imho) the best plans for unfucking this country in the middle east. He's tough and charismatic. He may be a higher risk choice, though, if you factor in his occasional tendency to phrase ideas in an unfortunate manner.

George Mitchell- In one man, I don't think you could find a better diplomat or deal maker than former Sen. Mitchell. He represents ethos, gravitas, and supreme competence in a single package. He may not be the ideal veep candidate, but it'd be hard to find a better veep who could honorably serve the country in so many ways.

Tom Vilsack- This former Iowa governor and presidential candidate doesn't have the star power of any of the above politicians, but he is not without his qualities. He would help round out a "midwestern" ticket, which might help blunt the charges of liberal elitism we always get from the GOP. He also brings charisma and the administrative experience that comes from running a state for two terms.

Ed Rendell- If it turns out that a high profile Clinton supporter is needed to put out the fires, why not someone cool. Even when he was carrying Hillary's water, he was just damn fun to watch. He could help shore up the Jewish vote the same way Richardson might help with Latinos. His selection could help with Pennsylvania, Ohio, and amongst the blue collar voters that drug things out for Clinton.

Any other suggestions???

Clinton to Concede Friday

Various sources including the NYT, CNN, and NBC are now reporting that Clinton has decided to concede the nomination and endorse Barack Obama this Friday. The decision was made during or shortly after a conference call with 23 superdelegate Clinton supporters including Congressman Charles Rangel of New York. Reports characterize Rangel's demeanor in particular as being angry for what he considered to be an incredibly ingracious non-concession speech that clearly put her own desires above the needs of the overall party. There were also indications that many other Clinton supporters, who now wish to move on to the general election behind Obama, expressed resentment regarding the implied threats that she and her supporters would withold their support from the presumptive nominee if they didn't get their way.

I didn't include any specific links since the news is just breaking. I'll have some more later on in the way of analysis once I better organize my thoughts. Surely, there has been a lot to digest over the past 24 hours.

Obama gets all up in Lieberman's grill...

From Roll Call via Huffington Post:

Furthermore, during a Senate vote Wednesday, Obama dragged Lieberman by the hand to a far corner of the Senate chamber and engaged in what appeared to reporters in the gallery as an intense, three-minute conversation.

While it was unclear what the two were discussing, the body language suggested that Obama was trying to convince Lieberman of something and his stance appeared slightly intimidating.

Using forceful, but not angry, hand gestures, Obama literally backed up Lieberman against the wall, leaned in very close at times, and appeared to be trying to dominate the conversation, as the two talked over each other in a few instances.

Still, Obama and Lieberman seemed to be trying to keep the back-and-forth congenial as they both patted each other on the back during and after the exchange.

Afterwards, Obama smiled and pointed up at reporters peering over the edge of the press gallery for a better glimpse of their interaction.

Obama loyalists were quick to express their frustration with Lieberman's decision and warned that if he continues to take a lead role in attacking Obama it could complicate his professional relationship with the Caucus.

Yeah make no mistake Blue Dogs...O Man ain't gonna truck with your nonsense.

It's called "Bo Diddley-itis."

Oh goody Dunkin Donuts writes me back.

In case you've heard, the right wingnuttia got all up in arms over this pic of Rachel Ray:

In response to the breathless bloggers like Michelle Malkin and the wankers over at Little Green Footballs, Dunkin Donuts decided to pull the above advertisement.

And what was their beef? Apparently the scarf around her neck looked like the type of garment that Arafat wore on his head.

Yeah I shit you not.

So I wrote a note decrying Dunkin Donuts for giving into the garment police. After all once Conservatives start telling people what [people] can and can not wear we will truly start forming the kind of fascist state that cretins on the right want.

Well Dunkin Donuts gave me the form letter kiss off today:

Thank you for sharing your comments. We always appreciate hearing from
our customers. The intent of the online ad featuring Rachael Ray
wearing a paisley silk scarf was to promote iced coffee. Given the
surprising and truly unfortunate interpretation of this ad from some
of our consumers, we decided to pull the ad and replace it with another as it
is no longer serving its intended purpose, which was to simply promote
our iced coffee---nothing more, nothing less.

At Dunkin' Donuts, we value all of our customers and remain steadfastly committed to making your experiences with us both memorable and pleasant. Thank you, again, for making us aware of your concerns; it is appreciated.
