BBB: Boy Speak…::Whuppity update! :: Whup Whup Update too! 24 June 2006Posted by marisacat in Big Box Blogs, DC Politics, Democrats.
From Politics TV – Blog Channel comes:
Towards the end of his opening remarks at the NDN Annual Meeting at a hotel in downtown Washington, DC, Markos Moulitsas (founder of DailyKos.com) remarked that
“this week has been a very interesting week for me…”
Politics TV runs a tease… any more and you have to listen… but here is the pertinent snip:
"This week has been a very interesting week for me. And I know I have sort of arrived in a scary way, because now I'm not being attacked for what I've said and done. People are making stuff up about me now. They're inventing things. And so I know now I'm on a different plane."
[thanks to NYCO]
Riehl World View, new. A look at the money end (see below for whuppity update), and some thoughts on who works for who. Links.
York at NRO has several grafs of text from the NDN speech. Greensooner in comments indicates Kos was just as … planetary last year… Then again, if you are on a separate "plane" are you necessarily on any planet? Might be floating out past Pluto? But still on a differnt "plane"…?
Beats pondering the Democrats' chances. Or ''joining up'' with Democratic operatives and telling yourself you have "joined a movement" … as he'd like us to believe SImon Rosenberg has. Boys go back. A ways. Let's spin that top the other way.
kaus has updates. On Kos, Armstrong and interplanetary relocation. A whole new meaning to off-shoring.
Round-up piece at Beltway BLogroll at NJ. Enjoy – or not.
I don't think Warner, official Southern White Male / Red State Dem – and I am sure his best hope was for the Veepessa spot… he cannot be too happy. Last I had looked at the official blog… it seemed the videos of Great Splash in the Spasmodic Desert … were down.
AND, I heard that Sherrod is getting calls, and not taking them, asking if Jerome is still on the payroll.
WHUPPITY UPDATE… 9:46 pm. PT
This is whup-uppity as we (which is me) are coming out of the closet, so to speak… Riehl World View has publicised the available financials from BlogPAC… it was in a comment here two days ago (Deeper Throat, that was before Dankest Deepest Throat arrived), time to bring it up above the fold. Plus, an online friend had alerted me a few months ago.
I have been waiting…. I am patient. Eventually the harvest comes in. Or cocktail hour arrives. A simple cocktail for me, for others, the planets align. What is at the mid-coeli? A dollar sign?
You can see Blog PAC's FEC filings here. They've already had more than one request for additional information as regards itemized expenditures and affiliated organizations or relationships. The pdf's aren't linkable, but are listed as Requests for Additional Information at link above. …
Update: If you look at the BlogPAC disclosure records, you'll see that from Jan – Mar of 2005 – their only disbursements were to another blogger / consultant – Bob Bingham – from the Swing State Blog. According to slate, he was a one time employee of Armstrong, as well as a leading force behind BlogPAC. Interesting. They've been collecting money on line and paying it to … themselves for consulting?? I don't know. But those filings could prove interesting, either now, or in the future.
So. Does Bob Brigham of Swing State Project (too? … ?)… still work at the Skyline offices (pdf.) at NPC, under the soft wing of the Rappaports? Angels of the Desert Con-flabby…
And then there is Whup Whup update…
I mean, what does one say about Donald Brooks? But! a middle brow to bitch about a middle brow online … hmmm, well … what is it? not a movement, that is for sure…. A mix of ATM and one armed bandit? With a liberal feel-good lounge … a waiting room?
Not their best day, Mark Warner's and Sherrod Brown's names figure high up, in the first few grafs…
The planets align… if there used to be a dollar sign at the collective mid-heaven for the boyos… well, time to update the celestial projections. I would say…
Have a coupe de champagne. That is Irish crystal, from the 20s. The champagne is Veuve Clicquot, orange lable.
Kos from late yesterday. Keeping it short. Probably wise… and safe to assume that Warner and Sherrod are getting more calls. hmmm for some odd reason, I just flashed on scenes from Ishtar. Not sure why that happened. Maybe thoughts of the desert. Or a boatload of money down the drain…. How fast did the ice sculptures melt?
Every day a new day… what will this one bring? Rising stars? Falling stars? Some are seeing stars in a new way. A word of advice – and I have done this for years – a safe summer sojourn in the desert is to go to Palm Springs for the sales at Sak's. Really stellar.
And, you know what you are getting.
