I know, its not primary day everywhere. But it is here in Cali and also Montana, Alabama, Iowa, New Jersey, Mississippi, New Mexico and South Dakota. Francine Busby is trying to break the Repube's stronghold in San Diego's 50th District. When I was down there this past weekend, the TV was inundated with smear ads against her, Repubes spent at least $4.5 million in the district last month alone. Their favorite word was "LIBERAL"...Bastards are sure good at making that a nasty word aren't they? Anything to get the rapture-loving right out there to vote. Hell, they even got good ole boy Dead-eye Dick, crazy-eye's Laura and hisself the Shrub making phone calls to all the registered repubes. Isn't that a scary thought, picking up the phone and hearing one of those clowns on the other line? Enough to give you nightmares sportsfans. The two Dem's running for governator here in Cali are slinging dirt at each other and the polls say its a dead heat with the undecided's holding their fate. I think they both suck so I will write-in one of my cats for governator most likely. I am tired of the "lesser of two evils" style of voting.
Molly Ivins points out that the difference between the right and left is simple: The Republicans are worried about the flag, gay marriage and the terrible burden of the estate tax on the rich. The rest of us are obviously unnecessarily worried about war, peace, the economy, the environment and civilization.
Tommy boy DeLay's last day on the hill is this Friday, I say we give him a real warm sendoff..perhaps actually letting the door hit him in his sorry ass,since we can't physically attack the bug-man without getting arrested..or maybe cheered.
David Safavian finished his time on the witness stand. He was grilled relentlessly by the prosecution, even admitting he wasn't qualified for the job he held..seems its better to say your stupid than dirty. One of my favorite parts..he had NO IDEA how much a luxury trip for two to Europe cost...jesus christ in a thong..WE aren't that stupid David..and we don't believe you are either.
If anyone wanted the entire text of Stephen Colberts speech at Knox College..its here.
