I admit I have not clicked on any of the links…  8)

On a separate matter, now remember, you all comment at the site that puts the ‘polish on the mud wallow’.  It must be so, Meteor Blades said so.

 I did laugh over that one.




1. wozzle - 24 May 2007

I clicked the links…

I’m a linkclicker.

2. wozzle - 24 May 2007

And seeing MB’s post toasties today made me realize how passive-agressive these supposed captains courageous of bloggieland are. It was like reading a 15 yo’s MySpace rant.

3. wozzle - 24 May 2007

Ummm… AgGressive. Sometimes my fingers and I lose touch.

4. liberalcatnip - 24 May 2007

Boehner just had a crying meltdown on the floor. Pelosi’s up now.

5. supervixen - 24 May 2007

I like the bit about “dramatic results”! It reminds me of that delightfully bizarre Doris Dörrie film Me and Him – Griffin Dunne as a normal guy whose penis suddenly starts talking to him and dominating his life. Not to everyone’s taste but it certainly made ME laugh.

Her comedy Men… is an all-time classic.

I’m blogging….and I can’t get up..(sorry for showing all the tit):

7. supervixen - 24 May 2007

How would one put “polish” on a “mud wallow”? I suspect that MB, who is no doubt looking forward avidly to all the hobnobbing in Chicagoland, was talking about Polish sausage.

More than kielbasas will be going down Kossacks’ throats, that’s for sure.

8. marisacat - 24 May 2007

LOL I went over to take a look. The FP is simply funny. I did not bother to open the Kerry or Slaughter Diaries… lordy…

And they pulled in Georgia!0…

Like the good folks over at MyDD and throughout the blogs, I’m stunned that any Democrat would seriously consider voting in favor of a Republican bill.

Kos says the DLC wants his little cadre to take their ball home. LOL They’d like nothing better, he says.

CLUE: The top 3 are DLCers. Edwards did jack shit in the congress then dipped out (no loss). To make a loss of 5 Southern Dem senate seats in one sweep.

They will sell it as long as people buy it. And not a minute longer.

9. supervixen - 24 May 2007

Miss D: Some Pig!


10. supervixen - 24 May 2007

Oh, this is a howl:

I have news for you guys — this won’t be the last disappointment we’ll ever suffer. Heck, politics is about perpetually fighting battles, and no one — no one — has an undefeated record.

In the words of Meteor Blades:

Amazing how people who talk about standing tough and fighting back surrender so easily.

That doesn’t mean ‘stop being angry’. It means, ‘stand tough and fight back’.

Coach Kos and his Rousing Half-Time Speech.

Knute Rockne he ain’t.

12. liberalcatnip - 24 May 2007

This song has been running through my head all day: It’s all only make believe…

13. colleen - 24 May 2007

now remember, you all comment at the site that puts the ‘polish on the mud wallow’.

Hands down one of Tim’s most entertaining posts and so very revealing.

14. liberalcatnip - 24 May 2007

Let us know if you get any cures in your spam box for ED – Electoral Dysfunction. When those you elected just can’t get up enough courage to do their jobs.

15. marisacat - 24 May 2007

People have to decide what they want. (I am not blaming the diarist, he is laying it where it needs to go, those who exhort the vote)

Either you vote for them and take the lumps when they are what they are… I mean Tester ws so damned cute – specially that comment about patriot act.. LOL… so cute.. and so useless! it was clear he would not beat PATRIOT back in DC (and whatshisanme so NEEDED to go, I got that one). And now silencio in DC. For months, or quotes that help the status quo.

Figure it out.

Poeple HAVE to reach the point of being able to withhold the vote.

The only way.

Think I first used “nutsack” here about webb… last spring or summer. he really go their nutsacks moving in the Progressive Movement… LOL

16. wozzle - 24 May 2007

This is all so very instructive. The dems have turned what shoulda been a massive victory into a rather impressive defeat – and seem to be happy about it.

Seems that DiFi isn’t the only war profiteer in the DP.

17. Madman in the Marketplace - 24 May 2007

hey, li’l late, but …

happy b-day jam.fuse, and great poem Kevin.

Too hard to catch up w/ you people after work.

18. liberalcatnip - 24 May 2007

Wow. Incredible amount of damage control going on over there on the dkos front page.

kos links to Bowers – circle jerk Townhouse time.

Keep in mind that while a demoralized progressive activist base has negative repercussions for Democratic electoral fortunes in general elections, in terms of intra-party power struggles, a demoralized, progressive, grassroots activist base actually strengthens the position of neoliberals, LieberDems, and the DLC-nexus within the Democratic Party power structure. If progressive grassroots activists are too demoralized to make small donations, the party becomes more reliant on large donors.

Money! They need your money, damnit! Because the last time you sent them your money, they listened to you and not all of those “large donors” like the oil companies who have a vested interest in keeping the Iraq war going until they get everything they want from beneath those sands.

Those boyz have some fucking nerve.

19. marisacat - 24 May 2007

It must have passed in the House, jsut got
br-r-r-r-r-eaking news from ABC.

20. marisacat - 24 May 2007

well that really is all that it is about. At the top and at the bottom.

When any one of them prattles on about supporting public funding I just laugh. The MEDIA will never permit it. Ever. Round the clock, round the year, roudn the cycle campaigns is a gold mine. They won’t let loose of it.

Someone posted somwhere getting a campaign call from one of the top 3 (it really does not matter who) and the fundraiser wanted 150.00 contribution.


21. liberalcatnip - 24 May 2007

Speaking of “wow”. From that Bowers post:

For example, the idea that Hillary Clinton would be facing any serious challenge to the Democratic nomination without the expansion and maturation of the contemporary progressive movement and open left in the last four years is preposterous. That isn’t to say that she has no support within the new movement, but just to state the obvious: she has less support within the movement than do other candidates, and far less support within the movement relative to the rest of the Democratic rank and file. Further, that isn’t to imply that the only support candidates like Obama and Edwards have comes from the progressive movement, but once against to state the obvious: each candidate is greatly buoyed by the support he is receiving from the movement. Yet further, I do not mean to imply that there is an active “demoralize the grassroots base” strategy being undertaken by the Clinton campaign. I just wish to point out that one of the reasons some Democrats might be less scared of the activist base than they are of Bush is because a demoralized grassroots base actually has positive, intra-party side effects for some Democrats. See Lieberman, Joe for more information on that subject.

Umm…wtf?? And people actually look to Bowers as some sort of visionary? Holy crap.

22. Marie - 24 May 2007

FWIW – Finally found something important enough for me to write about — probably incredibly dull, but at least not derivative, speculative or devisive.

Another Giant Sucking Sound

Rusty1776 has another good one early yesterday and the Diary on the latest reported “honor” killing was good.

First, the diarist obviously has not read Daily Kos today. Kos has no less than 10 front page posts up condemning the capitulation. He is angry with any Democrat who is voting for the bill. He has said so.

Your diary paints a picture that both Markos and David Sirota are somehow supportive of Senator Tester’s vote. That is a lie, and you should know it.

No I don’t think they support his vote at all, and yes, I read Kos’ several diaries on this disappointment. I do appreciated what you’re saying – but I think a little less hero-worship (or so it seems) a few more hard promises might have been in order.

by mmontanaman on Thu May 24, 2007 at 04:11:41 PM PDT

* As I said today in my diary… (0+ / 0-)

the world is not black and white. Should we be very angry and disappointed in Tester’s presumed vote? Absolutely. Because of the vote, is Tester now evil incarnate? No.

Is he still a good progressive Democrat on a host of other issues? Sure.

You did what you should have done today, and that was let your Senator know how angry you are. Perhaps he will think twice next time. Perhaps he will change his mind.

They have to stop falling for it, but i am not hopeful.

Just heard 142 voted NO in the House.

24. liberalcatnip - 24 May 2007

lol…luscious channeling Rummy asking and answering his own questions?

That commenter nailed it: “hero-worship”. It’s the myth the boyz live by.

25. supervixen - 24 May 2007

This is sick:

“However,” Bush said, “it’s going to require taking control” of Baghdad.

And nobody steps forward to tell him how INSANE a concept that is.

Not even any elected Democrats. The so-called opposition party which is supposed to speak truth to power.

Well, here’s one Democrat saying it: THIS IS INSANE. We are NEVER going to take control of Baghdad, nor will we ever take control of Iraq. This adventure was fucked from the very beginning. Anyone with normal intelligence and a modicum of military knowledge knew this. Or should have known this.

Time for a Third Party with some smarts and integrity. Otherwise we’re sunk.

26. liberalcatnip - 24 May 2007

My kos quote du jour:

I don’t pretend to understand the legislative process, but last time I checked, the leadership has broad powers to control what legislation reaches the floor for a vote.

He misspelled: I don’t mind being ignorant, even if I run one of the biggest political blogs on the internets, wrote a book about politics and am frequently interviewed by the MSM as some sort of political guru.

27. marisacat - 24 May 2007

Roll Call on the vote

Thu May 24th, 2007 at 08:46:52 PM EST

I go to watch a little league game and come back to find that the House Dems have sold out their base and funded more mayhem for our troops in Iraq. I could rant about it, but I’ve known this was coming for a while. Some people see it as a total betrayal. I don’t. Not really. I see it as a decision to not to let get things get really ugly…which is what would happen right now because we have not succeeded to splintering the Republican caucus. Whether it is ending the war or impeaching Bush and Cheney, we first must splinter the GOP caucus. They held firm this time. A lot of people think we’ll see the same story play out in September. I don’t. I really think the GOP pulled out their last hurrah on this bill. They’ll rue this day for years to come.

Oh yes! They will rue this day! Rue it, I tell ya!

Dog forbid a vote about a war gets ugly. Why that would be just…well…bad manners.

36. liberalcatnip - 24 May 2007

For a change of pace:

LONG-STANDING rumours that the former French president Jacques Chirac holds a secret multi-million-euro bank account in Japan appear to have been confirmed by files seized from the home of a senior spy.

Papers seized by two investigating magistrates from General Philippe Rondot, a former head of the DGSE, France’s intelligence service, show Mr Chirac opened an account in the mid-1990s at Tokyo Sowa Bank, credited with the equivalent of £30 million. It is not known where the money came from, nor whether it is connected to various kick-back scandals to which Mr Chirac’s name has been linked over the past decade.

Last year, Mr Chirac “categorically denied” having a bank account in Japan.

The seized documents have been described by the magistrates as “explosive” and are believed to contain copies of the former president’s bank statements.
The alleged evidence was discovered by judges Jean-Marie d’Huy and Henri Pons after they seized 112 bound files and numerous other documents from the home of Gen Rondot in connection with their inquiry into an alleged smear campaign. Dubbed “The French Watergate”, it centred on whether Dominique de Villepin, the then prime minister, had asked Gen Rondot to dig up dirt on Mr Sarkozy, then interior minister, who had been wrongly accused of receiving kickbacks from the £1.4 billion sale of French frigates to Taiwan in 1991.

Claims of Mr Chirac’s secret nest egg first came to the attention of the French authorities in 1996 when his friend Shoichi Osada, a Japanese banker, decided to invest £500 million in France, so triggering a routine investigation by the DGSE, which is said to have stumbled upon the then president’s Japanese account.

Thrown into a panic, Mr Chirac is said to have summoned Gen Rondot in 2001 and ordered him to destroy all DGSE evidence of the account. Unfortunately for the president, the spy simply removed the notes and memos about the affair to his home, where they were seized in March last year by Mr d’Huy and Mr Pons. Since then, the judges have been discreetly pursuing an investigation, interviewing 20 intelligence officers about the affair.

Looks like the chickens are coming home to roost:

Mr Chirac is reported to have struck a deal with Mr Sarkozy, whereby the latter will push through judicial reforms ensuring the ex-president escapes prosecution. However, the magistrates are expected to move before the reforms are passed this summer.

Next move ought to be sending a copy of one’s change of party affiliation to one’s errant Dem representative, or, if one of the eleven who voted no-encourage them to change their party.

(Am madly googling to find the easiest way for all to get those forms on-line; the post office usually has them, but am having trouble finding the change of affiliation forms–will keep working)

I can vote in either primary, just not both.

i stayed in the party as it used to be unless you chose a party you were shut out of the primaries..

With mega emails to funders that it was “necessary” so they could lead the base on.

let’s get real here. War mongers.

So a big old EIGHT.

55. Madman in the Marketplace - 24 May 2007

Feingold today:

Unfortunately, after that strong vote, we are moving backward. Instead of forcing the President to safely redeploy our troops, instead of coming up with a strategy providing assistance to a post-redeployment Iraq, and instead of a renewed focus on the global fight against al-Qaeda, we are faced with a spending bill that kicks the can down the road and buys the Administration time.

But why, I ask you, would we buy the Administration more time? Why should we wait any longer? Since the war began in March 2003, we have lost more than 3,420 Americans, with over 71 killed since the beginning of this month. Last month, we lost over one hundred Americans. Last weekend, the media reported that 24 bodies were found lying in the streets of Baghdad; all of whom had been killed execution style. 19 of them were found in parts of the city where U.S. troops have “surged.”

The Administration’s policy, Mr. President, is clearly untenable. The American people know that, which is why they voted the way they did in November. They want us out of Iraq and they want us out now. They don’t want to give the so-called “surge” time. They don’t want to pass this problem off to another President, and another Congress. And they sure don’t want another American servicemember to die, or lose a limb, while elected representatives put their own political comfort over the wishes of their constituents.

It was bad enough to have the President again disregard the American people by escalating our involvement in Iraq. Now, too, Congress seems to be ignoring the will of the American people. Mr. President, if the American people cannot count on the leaders they elect to listen to them, and to act on their demands, then something is seriously wrong with our political institutions – or with the people who currently occupy those institutions. I urge my colleagues to reject the weak supplemental conference report, and to stand strong as we tell the Administration that it is time to end a war that is draining our resources, straining our military, and undermining our national security.

Walk away Russ, and try to talk some others into joining you. Take away their majority, at least in the fucking Senate. They don’t deserve it, they’re only using you for cover. Jeez … take a hint, walk away. Fighting Bob would smile upon you if you would set that example.

56. marisacat - 24 May 2007

Sherrod Brown too, who is not up til 2012.

LOL, what a hoot!

I think Bush threatened them this am with a hit on US soil while they had a NO vote in the hopper for funding the troops.

As in, a hit this summer. That is what I heard in his speech this am.

Found it–it is just a matter of re-registering. And I copied the re-reg and will send it to DiFi. And Boxer and ask the latter why she wants to stick with these losers.

The senate vote was a horror. I notice Byrd voted aye, and Clinton voted nay, but they are together sponsoring the de-authorization bill. Hillary dons her fucking bermuda triangulation shorts.

And Durbin, Obama’s big supporter, votes aye. Evening out Illinois.

Might as well throw a b-day party for jam.fuse at Je Blague. (will take a minute to bake cyber cake)

I think there already was a hit on our soil, though I doubt we’ll ever know the full story.

69. marisacat - 24 May 2007

How empty America is… they were afraid of Bush, afraid of the media Wurlitzer, afraid of Memorial Day weekend and frankly, they supported the war.

What it came down to…

They drilled them, trained them
Fighting fit
To perish in the devil’s pit.
“Lions led by donkeys,” went the cry
At the high command who sent them there to die.

70. lucidculture - 24 May 2007

LC- I think I’d rather start with an order of global corporatism & a glass late 19th century robber baron.

71. marisacat - 24 May 2007


last I read (2 days ago) a marker for the Iraqis is passing the Oil law.

72. Sabrina Ballerina - 24 May 2007

No Penis left behind … funny, Marisacat!

Well, the Party’s over …. The Dem Party that is …. I watched Dodd on C.Matthews tonight and he told the truth, this war is for oil! Matthews prodded him to say it, but it really didn’t take much prodding. He was excellent.

Marisacat, I heard Bush’ threats also …. if we leave, there will be an attack, here. When the Godfather speaks, people listen. He also promised loads of violence, death and destruction. Translated, they are going to slaugher as many Iraqis as they can. Those damn Iraqis, who won’t roll over than hand over their oil.

Miss D. great idea to send in change of Party Registration. Must spread that idea around …..

Kos and the blahgers are desperate. Not one more dime!! Out of all the comments they heard, that must have been the most chilling for them.

The Parties don’t need our pittances – they are fully employed by the Corporations. Time to start working locally in every state getting Independent candidates to run for Congress …. everyone I know is ready …

Polls today: 72% of the country is unhappy with the direction of the country. Only 24% say it’s going alright.

Next up, the Secret Trade deal! Lol! It’s going to be a long, hot summer.

73. missdevore - 24 May 2007

C’mon over for a little party for jam.fuse:


74. Tuston - 24 May 2007

Well, I pretty well convinced that we will be hit (again) soon. All sorts of people are pissed and just ain’t buying WoT come on like they were 5 years ago…

75. AlanSmithee - 24 May 2007

The oil privatization deal was going to be one of the benchmarks but was dropped with the others. I’ll probably be pushed through in Oct. I’d hesitate to speculate when the Iran war will start. The Dems have only agreed not to oppose Pres’dint Chimpy.

76. marisacat - 24 May 2007

I just think that Bush cannot leave office iwthout a few bombs over Iran.

And i still say, he is jealous of Truman and that Club of One.

77. Sabrina Ballerina - 24 May 2007

Alan, I didn’t know they dropped it …. Kucinich and Dodd both said this all about oil. The date for Iraq to sign it into law, May 15th, has passed and the violence has escalated. They will never get their hands on that oil, imo. They’ll just keep killing and killing and all that will do is create more violence until eventually they are driven out.

The neocons are happy today. I haven’t ventured over to the blahgs – I hate watching people beg …

I have to go …. and will probably be away from the computer for most of the weekend … try to enjoy Memorial Day! We will surely have more dead soldiers to remember before the weekend is over.

A Crime of great magnitude was committed today …. only 11 Dems voted against it. That’s fewer Dems than voted for the MCA which took away Habeas Corpus. The netroots sure have made a difference.

Goodnight sweet Vags …. be back in a few days …. it’s a sad, sad day!

78. ms_xeno - 24 May 2007

I just love how we couldn’t possibly be doing anything in the outside world that mattered because we haven’t had our actions vetted for approval by MB and his overlords yet.

Ho hum.

79. Tuston - 24 May 2007

well, how can we be allowed to make our own decisions while we lack “reading comprehension”…

80. missdevore - 24 May 2007

Night Sabrina–I am working on olive oil privitazation……

81. Revisionist - 24 May 2007

LOL… Fishoutofwater posted an Ironic Diary at the DK. lol…. it really took me a couple of paragraphs to figure out if it was satire or not. He/she sounded just like LV or Fleethomophobe.

82. lucidculture - 24 May 2007

Miss X – it’s because we’re dishonest and our politics are on par with the internal politics of a Community College English department… sigh.

Petulantly spoken by a finger wagging apologist for our corporate overlords who pretends to be a leftist, just for kicks. Oh, but he’s always got a condom in his pocket. That was the greatest ‘lesson’ he learned from dear old dad.

83. marisacat - 24 May 2007


it’s because they feel they own anyone who ever posted there.

They must deliver head counts to get paid from the DSCC and DCCC. That is my guess, they are always so tense about their numbers…

What a hoot!


I heard a real howler today on some show on AAR (not even sure who was th einterviewer) they had on Jim Dean… LOL who said DFA is independent, not directly affilated with the party.


And that they have lots of Ind and Greens.

Howard had a lot of cross over supporters, but was years ago. And far away.

I laughed out loud.

84. colleen - 24 May 2007

well, how can we be allowed to make our own decisions while we lack “reading comprehension

Not to mention the fact that you’re an “agent provocateur” while I am a “Maoist sympathiser”.

85. missdevore - 24 May 2007

there’s tons of food…..

86. Tuston - 24 May 2007

agent provocateur

Yeah, ya know the Mutherfucker Beard has got my number, Agent 00pie squared. I’ve even got a shoe phone…

87. marisacat - 24 May 2007

LOL he’s still at it, in the agnostic prayer thread.

88. liberalcatnip - 24 May 2007

So I guess OPOL will be considered “mainstream” from now on at dkos?

kos really should have hired more thugs/cheerleaders/blogmaids. They seem to be a tad outnumbered right now…

89. missdevore - 24 May 2007

off in left field topic–I’ve been reading “Motherless Brooklyn” for the past few days, on the bus, at the bedside. there are pockets of joy and brilliance in so many places, and when we war we eradicate them on a daily basis.

90. colleen - 24 May 2007

I’ve even got a shoe phone…

They gave you a SHOE PHONE? Damn, I’m definitely working for the wrong government. All I got was this old photo of me swimming the Yangtze with the Chairman. fuck

91. Sabrina Ballerina - 24 May 2007

Okay, I’m back … we missed the last ferry! Everyone else is sleeping but I can’t sleep …. will throw myself in the car tomorrow morning and get the first ferry out of here. I feel like Cinderella living here, it has its disadvantages, if you are not on the ferry by midnight, you turn into a hippo maybe?

So our name is MUD! But least we’re polished which we wallow in as we should! And we were right, which we should also wallow in!

The Hippopotamus Song

A bold hippopotamus was standing one day
On the banks of the cool Shalimar
He gazed at the bottom as he peacefully lay
By the light of the evening star

Away on the hilltop sat combing her hair
His fair hippopotami maid
The hippopotamus was no ignoramus
And sang her this sweet serenade

Mud, mud, glorious mud
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
So follow me follow, down to the hollow
And there let me wallow in glorious mud

The fair hippopotama he aimed to entice
From her seat on that hilltop above
As she hadn’t a mama to give her advice
Came tiptoeing down to her love

Like thunder the forest re-echoed the sound
Of the song that they sang when they met
His inamorata adjusted her garter
And lifted her voice in duet

Now more hippopotami began to convene
On the banks of that river so wide
I wonder now what should I say of the scene
That ensued by the Shalimar side

They dived all at once with an ear-splitting sposh
Then rose to the surface again
A regular army of hippopotami
All singing this haunting refrain

Mud, mud, glorious mud
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
So follow me follow, down to the hollow
And there let me wallow in glorious mud

The amorous hippopotamus whose love song we know
Is now married and father of ten,
He murmurs, “God rot ’em!” as he watches them grow,
And he longs to be single again!

He’ll gambol no more on the banks of the Nile,
Which Naser is flooding next spring,
With hippopotamas in silken pyjamas
No more will he teach them to sing…

Chorus (all together now)
Mud, mud, glorious mud
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
So follow me follow, down to the hollow
And there let me wallow in glorious mud


A regular army of hippopotami! A den of vipers! A litter box! (don’t forget the value of kitty litter re the world’s most expensive coffee) not to mention, cull de nutsackers which I think we do quite well.

92. wu ming - 24 May 2007

2 out of 3, good to see mike thompson come through. feinstein is, as always, a safe vote for empire.

we are so fucked.

93. liberalcatnip - 24 May 2007

I am SO not polishing those hippos.

94. lucidculture - 24 May 2007

And gee, why is it that the great one keeps posting in a dead thread? Classic kos cop behaviour – once everything is in hidden comments in dead threads, they pull out the barbs. Do they not want their words to see the light of day? Last word syndrome? Ashamed much?


I must admit he had me fooled for quite a while on the Daily Navel Lint. He talks a good game, if you’re only listening with one ear.

95. BooHooHooMan - 24 May 2007

The BBB’s a la nutsacks: Beach Blanket Bingo

In sports, Mario Lemieux is one of the most gifted hockey players ever to have laced up skates. Lemieux has often stated he would have preferred many other paths. Ricky Williams was a first round NFL draft pick (still holds or shares some 20 NCAA records). This young pro running back lost a lot of love and money when he left the game preferring to spark up a few doobies when he felt like it instead.

I envy a guy who incorporated skates into his daily grind… and though my writing is probably more than a little influenced by “my youthful indiscretion” I haven’t been high in twenty years. Who am I to judge these guys…The steroid obsessed athletes and “must dominate” body sculptors are another matter. After reading his paean to Ahnold recently, I couldn’t help but picture scrawny Markos in a bikini (topless -ooo) on a beach. Scrawny Markos ,I think, would be just gleeful on tippy toes oiling up one of Schwarzenegger’s humunkulous biceps in a promotional he – man pose.

96. Sabrina Ballerina - 24 May 2007

Colleen, you’re on a role tonight – lol!

Lucid, he had me fooled for a long time also, but I did notice that he never came to the defense of the progressive voices that were being hounded off that board …. they got away with it for a while, but they were trigger happy with that troll button, and now they cannot understand why there are literally thousands of people who realize that dk was all a sham and are saying so, as they have a right to do.

I think they really thought that once they banned someone, they would ‘begone’ from the universe. Such short-sightedness really. That they thought they could treat people that way and not pay a price for it, shows how bad their thinking is in general. Any half-way decent strategist would have realized that such thuggery would have unintended consequences.

They banned thousands, and thousands more watched in disgust … It boggles the mind that they didn’t realize what they were doing. I think it’s hilarious that Opol, the one they hated the most is still there, and they really cannot get rid of him of now, in fact they need him. Talk about unintended consequences.

97. liberalcatnip - 24 May 2007

Sure, contact those congresspeople but remember now kidz:

Let’s just remember to do it politely. (2+ / 0-)

Keep in mind also that a lot of people voted tonight to continue to fund the troops…and that was the sole reason…that Bush was holding the troops hostage.

when arnold ws running ti came out that in the 90s he had bought up loads of, if not all of, film made at Gold’s Gym in the years he was a fixture there. Apparently they ran cameras ALL the time.

I thought it over… I mean he hardly cares about all the stories about grabbing women (I felt very sorry for the woman who did come forward and speak to the LAT…)… I asked a gay friend… don’t you think he was trying to salvage films of himself having sex iwth men?

My mother used ot have a line about some people, that they’d screw a chicken.

That sounded like Arnold to me. Anything moving.

99. Sabrina Ballerina - 24 May 2007

Ms xeno, it really is odd that they think if people are not clocking in at DK they are not doing anything. The truth is people at other blogs do way more than dk, whose focus is only on elections as far as activism goes. I did way more before I found dk and I know you do more than ten dkers together could even dream of. Imagine that and you never even posted a word on dk! Lol! We know what the ‘action girl’ does but shopping really doesn’t cut it, despite what Giuliani says!

Boohoohooman!! I found a new attraction for you, you know, to help you get over the camel obsession! Check out the ‘Glorious mud wallowing hippo song above! I really did think of you when I found it. Think of those giant in huge clitlickers!

Miss D – please, olive oil should be nationalized!

100. Sabrina Ballerina - 24 May 2007

‘giant feet’ in huge clitlickers!

101. BooHooHooMan - 24 May 2007


Mud Glorious Mud was from “Oliver”.

War Crimes for Minimum Wages. Mmmmmmm.

Have a big Front Page Tootsie Roll(c) ,Meteor,

…it’s because they feel they own anyone who ever posted there…

I should get a special exemption then. Since I never posted there. Oh, wait. I’m owned by Kos through marriage. It’s like dogs pissing on a tree or something. Except in this case even the pissing is secondhand. :p

I feel really sad at missing every nuance of MB’s tantrum du jour, but I really do have to finish this Photoshop project. Nothing personal, MB. I would have shoved BooBoo or Viva La Revolucion Bowers to the bottom of the pile just as readily. I’m sure that consoles you.

103. ms_xeno - 24 May 2007

[Waves at SB]

Oh, and just saw Sir No Sir. Would everyone who also saw it and can totally picture Kos as the guy who did the “rabbit act” for the new recruits please raise their hands ?

104. liberalcatnip - 24 May 2007

MB is just so darn angry that he’s going to rush right out there and do something about it…this summer. Take that, Dems!

105. lucidculture - 24 May 2007

I should get a special exemption then. Since I never posted there.

Then maybe you are one of the few vipes he respects [as he always disclaims in every post making a sweeping generalization of everyone here].

I guess that’s kind of like getting a parking ticket as a Birthday present.

107. ms_xeno - 25 May 2007

Yeah, lucid. If I’m really good, MB will invite me to scrape the plates off at the next Big Orange Feminininny Fundraiser. You know, right before they go in the dishwasher. I bet he’ll only pay me a couple of bucks less than what he’d pay you. 😉

re#76 and that “club of one” Mcat — puts me in mind of an old Stan Ridgway tune…..

Harry Truman

John Wayne was always bald
And he had a woman’s name

Valentino was a momma’s boy
He cried in his tent all night long

And Harry Truman finally
Dropped the bomb
So they could go to sleep at night

I got a plaque up on the wall
and an office in the sky

I give birth to major deals
Lookin’ down on the passersby

I pass the torch, I follow the code
I’m steerin’ straight ahead
No, I don’t stray the road

To be a warrior with a king
To put your hand in the flame

Without burning

And go to sleep at night

John Wayne was always bald
And he had a woman’s name

Valentino was a momma’s boy
I cried in my tent all night long

And Harry Truman finally dropped the bomb

So I could go to sleep at night

Now…go to sleep…

I am brought back to a night 15 years ago, when I cried in my room all night long, listening to this song in Hiroshima…..
