President JFK

Posted by: on Jul 29, 2004 | No Comments

As in John Forbes Kerry.
“I’m John Kerry, and I’m reporting for duty.”
Speech tonight at the DNC a definite home run… energetic, upbeat, hopeful, concise, and a real display of true statesmanship. Despite the somewhat earned stick-up-his-ass reputation, Kerry proved himself tonight. Candy Crowley is moist.
Video will make it up on eventually; text is already up. If anyone knows another link, let me know.
Congrats to our next President. Latest polls have him up 5 points, this will only make things better.
Brace yourself for the hatefest next month in NY…

Gotta love craigslist.
Married? older? bi-curious? top? bottom? vers? no-strings? vanilla? leather? role-playing? rubber? It’s all within spitting distance of the Fleet Center.

What’s gotten into Andrew Sullivan?

…Tightly scripted, elegantly choreographed, seamlessly on the centrist message of war, unity, maturity and judgment…
…If the first night is any indicator, the Democrats have played the smartest, strongest card of the campaign so far…
…Remember when we were one as a nation? Do you really think that president Bush is capable of bringing any of us together again? Of course, some Democrats are responsible for exactly that polarization. But it’s nevertheless a smart move to portray themselves as a unifying future compared to the divisive past.

I feel dirty.

Somewhere, Ted’s crying…

CNN’s CoverageLight (now with 50% less real news!) of the DNC has left me hurling insults at the TV screen more than a few times today. Watching Judy Woodruff bait former President Jimmy Carter with her partisan slant is nauseating… not to mention just downright disrespectful.
It runs the gambit from “you don’t really think a MA liberal can win, do you?” to “polls show W is clearly stronger on homeland defense” to “did the Democratic party tell you what to say tonight and ask you to be nice to Kerry?” (I’m paraphrasing here.)
Let’s see, she’s reinforced a favorite GOP 4-letter word, promoted a bullshit statistic, and insuniated Carter doesn’t really like Kerry that much all before it’s time to run a Swiffer commercial. Nice job, toots.
She’d be less obvious giving Bush a handjob in primetime.
(Hmmmmm… I *am* just up the street from CNN HQ. Granted, most the bobbleheads are in Boston, but I’m sure there’s a giant plug outside the building I can accidently trip over.)

For a little fun, went to Madonna last night. You know, not bad for an old chick… not bad at all. 🙂

Plogs Psuck

Amazon is trying to capitalize on the popularity of blogs with some crackpot invention called a “Plog.” They’re basically expansive product love notes written by Amazon staffers — you know, the description you’d find in a detail page. But now laid out in blog-like fashion! As a homepage for the site! Fucking brilliant!
plogsaredumb.gifOr not… completely useless as they’re (a) too wordy to convey anything useful in an appropriate time for a homepage, and (b) offer no prices.
It gets worse. I sent this to tonight:

Please dump this “Plog” idiocy and bring back the old homepage. Who the hell are you trying to kid? Who the frick wants to read 580 words on “Six Feet Under – The Complete Second Season.” Do you think I’m living in a hole? Then there’s not even a price listed! Hello ass, insert head!
Oh, and then you link to Glenn Reynolds and James Lileks one click off your new home page. (What is a Plog?) Two particularly nasty wingnuts, one of whom you crown “The Blogfather.”
I mean, are you trying to piss me off on purpose?
This might be a deal breaker. And to think we had such a good relationship.

Hate amendment goes down in flames (although 48 Yays are 48 too many), but less ye forget…
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) in a speech to that affable Heritage Foundation:

“It does not affect your daily life very much if your neighbor marries a box turtle. But that does not mean it is right. . . . Now you must raise your children up in a world where that union of man and box turtle is on the same legal footing as man and wife.”

What is it with these people and animals? Nutty.
Warning! GOP pr0n follows!

I’ve got dysfunctional bloggers syndrome… don’t feel like posting much these days. So, instead, I give you Captain Caveman. Why isn’t important. Just enjoy.
