As long as everyone has their own flag and light bulb… 15 December 2008

Posted by marisacat in 2008 Election, 2010 Mid Terms, DC Politics, Democrats, Inconvenient Voice of the Voter.


President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. met with former Vice President Al Gore on Tuesday. (Photo: Jim Wilson/The New York Times)

I have no idea if Ob buys into all the silly chatter about Czars (can we grow up and be a Czarina, Mommy?!) or not.  WSJ saw fit to bloviate about Czars… It all sounds so damned passe.

And so poised for massive passe failure.  Surely Arnold was to be our Special Nazi Sent by God, Bush and Cheney Energy and Finances Czar.  Did not work.  We are right back at one of the wedge issues he used, raising car license fees.  5 years later.

Speaking of Cheney… via The Page:

The outgoing VP tells Rush Limbaugh he believes Obama will not cede executive power to Congress.

“I think they’ll find that given a challenge they face, they’ll need all the authority they can muster.”

Also says he’ll “let history handle” the response to 9/11 and war on terror– read more here.

Cheney, imo, is right.  All the Dems wanted (that hoary old party) was to glom onto the power BushCheney grabbed

Ryan Lizza quotes Obama in the New Yorker:

“I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.”

Swell times a-comin’.  (Sorry to be blunt.  Merry merry.)

Other than that, I so want to know other members of congress that thought Madoff was the bees’ knees.  Lautenberg is now talking total wipe out of the the family charity.  And it was Spielberg’s WUNDERKIND charity …

Wunderkinder Foundation, a Steven Spielberg charity. In the past the foundation “appears to have invested a significant portion of its assets with Mr. Madoff, based on regulatory filings. In 2006, the Madoff firm accounted for roughly 70% of the foundation’s interest and dividend income, according to regulatory filings. A representative of Mr. Spielberg confirmed that the foundation has suffered losses on its investments with the Madoff firm. He said he didn’t know the size of the losses and couldn’t comment further, including on whether Mr. Spielberg had any of his own money invested with the Madoff firm.” WSJ

Do you love the use of “appears”….  “couldn’t comment further”… I bet not.   Think it is  Zuckerman who admits to having had (unbeknownst to Zuckerman! Mais Oui!)  a staffer on salary at US News who was a ”feeder” to Madoff.

Find the Feeders!  Crucify Them!  You know these smart, smart people were just cruelly hornswaggled.  Victims, every one of them…

Too funny!

Left this out… HuffPo on Madoff money Dem party donations. What to do what to do. Suck thumb first.. LOL

“With the bailout, one wonders to what extent the Democratic votes may have been influenced in the House and Senate by that,” said Stephen Wayne, a political science professor at Georgetown University. “My guess is that, with the exception of the people like Schumer and Rahm Emanuel, who headed the committees that raised money, I’m not sure anybody was aware of Madoff… What struck me was that in Election Day surveys, 56 percent of the people said they opposed the [financial market] bailout. It wasn’t an issue because both candidates were on the same side of it. What [these donations do] is fuel the cynicism that many people on Main Street have, that they are being raked over by big corporation and investment firms and executives who make millions of dollars.”

So shocked.

And, it’s all the coverage (theme, everybody is so mean to OB!). Well it wouldn’t have been had it been dealt with expeditiously LAST WEEK. Now we needed a White Father to give cover (Fitzhoohoo says no talking!)

[I] really can’t sum up the past week of coverage any better. What I can do, however, is relate the effects of this coverage. Via Rasmussen Reports:

Forty five percent (45%) of U.S. voters say it is likely President-elect Obama or one of his top campaign aides was involved in the unfolding Blagojevich scandal in Illinois, including 23% who say it is Very Likely.

Just 11% say it is not at all likely, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey taken Thursday and Friday nights.

A key finding, by the way? “Voters nationally are more skeptical than those in Illinois.”

What can I say? THE SYSTEM WORKS.

Live by the system die by it. Or get nicked. I don’t think anyone other than political junkies and the hard core are noticing that lack of simple resolution of a nothing story will drag past Christmas.. very likely. Can’t wait for the real problems to hit the manger..

lucid, a few threads ago:

…I’ve never understood why people think ’sex’ will change the world. It’s about as important as pooping.

I think it was no less an authority than Mark Twain who said that a good bowel movement was infinitely more satisfying on a physical level than good sex.

Of course, your (pl.) mileage may vary. 😀

Not Al Gore! NOOOO!!!


4. ms_xeno - 15 December 2008

I didn’t like the CGI in Al’s movie. It wasn’t nearly as cool as the CGI in 300

More hot tea, anyone ?

5. marisacat - 15 December 2008

hmm Ob talks about “new crops”.

Somehow I don’t think that is good news.. all Monsanto things considered.

[L]ast week, outgoing Education Secretary Margaret Spellings met with Duncan and gave him her blessing.

Critics say he’s a “corporate” type who favors metrics over actual knowledge about how children learn, but the American Federation of Teachers praises his management style. He’s beloved by charter schools advocates.

Like Obama, Duncan favors merit pay for teachers and administrators, but he’s been cautious about pushing the concept too far without input from teachers’ unions.

Change! And more Harvard… Ambinder has a post up with the snip from above:


7. marisacat - 15 December 2008

Alternet has this … Rod Paige is bad news iirc… he was the author or present at the birth of the Houston scam that led to NCLB, which then MIller and Kennedy drank down whole.

Duncan, a basketball buddy of Obama’s, has been called a “budding hero in the education business” by Bush’s former Education secretary, Rod Paige. Just as the test-crazy nightmare of Paige’s Houston served as a national model (when it should have been a cautionary tale) in 2001, so Duncan would bring to Washington an agenda based on Renaissance 2010, which Chicago education activist Michael Klonsky describes as a blend of “more standardized testing, closing neighborhood schools, militarization, and the privatization of school management.”

No wonder Spellings likes Duncan!

Englehardt (with Turse) has a post on MIC and household names…

In the middle of the last century, however — as Prokosch has documented — Whirlpool was engaged in what many might deem a wrong thing. In 1957, Whirlpool took over work on flechettes — razor-sharp darts with fins at the blunt end — for the U.S. military. While International Harvester, the prior Pentagon contractor producing them, had managed to pack only 6,265 of these deadly darts into a 90mm canister round, Whirlpool set to work figuring out a way to cram almost 10,000 flechettes into the same delivery vehicle. Its goal: to “improve the lethality of the canisters.” (In addition, Whirlpool also reportedly worked on “Sting Ray” — an Army project involving a projectile filled with flechettes coated in a still-undisclosed chemical agent.)

9. ms_xeno - 15 December 2008

I have it on good authority that only churlish folk would study the records of Obama’s picks and then assume that those picks have been chosen to do exactly what they’ve always done– only more so.

Bad, bad churls. No fuel and blankets for you. Bad.

10. marisacat - 15 December 2008


anyone who thinks I am rubbing it in… is RIGHT!

11. ms_xeno - 15 December 2008

Wouldn’t a’ guessed, Mcat.

I just refuse to discuss politics with anyone I know IRL anymore. It’s pointless. I’m sick of their tired excuses and triple somersaults for the asshole they all wanted so badly.

That’s why I went back to reading superhero comics and watching cartoons. So we’d have something else to talk about instead of me constantly shrugging off the somersaults with “I hate to say I told you so.” Not to mention the endless loops like this only-slight-simulation:

Friend of Golden Man: I just know that Obama’s going to fix healthcare. I am full of hope. He simply MUST fix it.

Me: Why ? What will you do to him if he doesn’t fix it ? What’s his motivation to fix it when he’s up to his ass in HMO and insurance dollars and besides, he and Mommy Obama and the Baby Obamas alreay have theirs.

FOGM: I just know that Obama’s going to fix healthcare. I am full of hope. He simply MUST fix it.

Me: Hey, do you watch the JSA cartoon ? It’s really fun. I love the woman who does Hawkgirl’s voice.

FOGM: I just know that Obama’s going to fix healthcare. I am full of hope. He simply MUST fix it.

Me: Ummm, I’m hanging up now. Merry Christmas.

12. marisacat - 15 December 2008

Not to be too blunt, but Mama Obama is already well bathed in Big Teaching Hospital Ethics… and how your salary goes up 170K when husband is elected to the senate. Even if you do have to step down from a 70K board seat on a vendor of Wal Mart. Boo Hoo.


Sure things will change.

13. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

Actually Cheney is frighteningly delusional.

He’s not saying Obama is a power hungry bastard who doesn’t respect the Constitution.

He’s saying that the “terrorist threat” is so overwhelming that Obama will be forced to continuing expanding the power of the presidency.

Bruce Schneier is much closer to the truth.

Even so, terrorism is rare. If a bunch of men with guns and grenades is all they really need, then why isn’t this sort of terrorism more common? Why not in the U.S., where it’s easy to get hold of weapons? It’s because terrorism is very, very rare.

So either Cheney is lying (the less frightening prospect) or he actually believes his own propaganda.

14. marisacat - 15 December 2008

IOZ weighs in on Milk. And Van Sant. And tame depictions of Castro in the 70s.

I’ll rent it when Netflix gets it.

15. marisacat - 15 December 2008

To be frank what Cheney thinks of terrorism is not what I was interested in…

But this I agree with: “Obama will be forced to continuing expanding the power of the presidency”.

But he will have TRIIIIED. Really. For change. But was FORCED.

Whammmmbulance for the Democrats!

16. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

But this I agree with: “Obama will be forced to continuing expanding the power of the presidency”.

“Forced” ???

That’s just the same nonsense Bush was spouting in his interview a few weeks ago.

Bush/Cheney made a choice to expand the power of the presidency. And they bullied Congress into it.

It’s quite possible, even likely, that Obama will be just as bad. But he won’t be “forced” into it by the evil Muslim terrorists. It will be a combination of the natural tendency of bureaucracy to expand, the weakness of Harry Reid and Obama’s own free will.

Cheney and Bush both seem to have this idea that these demonic forces are acting on them from the outside and absolve them of any responsibility for anything.

17. marisacat - 15 December 2008

You misread me. Try inserting sarcasm and cynical laughter behind the ”forced”.

Yes, like he is forced by Fitz to stall on simple resolutions.

We are so blessed.

18. Madman in the Marketplace - 15 December 2008
19. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

And tame depictions of Castro in the 70s.

And I suppose Titus Andronicus was Shakespeare’s best play.

Restrained isn’t necessarily bad. Unless you’re an idiot, you can pretty much figure out what was going on in the typical San Francisco bathhouse in the 1970s.

I guess you could criticize Zeffereli’s Romeo and Juliet because it didn’t show full frontal nudity or vaginal penetration. But what would be the point?

Its treatment of Milk is hagiographic.

I suppose they could have explored the fact that Milk used Jim Jones to bulk up his street protests but that would have simply confused people. You make narrative choices. That involves leaving things out.

20. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

Try inserting sarcasm and cynical laughter behind the ”forced”.

But Cheney meant it literally. The man is nuts.

21. marisacat - 15 December 2008

I suppose they could have explored the fact that Milk used Jim Jones

The Democratic party used Jim Jones. Milk too, he did what was convenient. Lots of embarrassing photos and tapes around with JJ. For loads of Dem party electeds.

But I heard a lot was purged from newsrooms, immediately they got a hold of the mass suicide story.

Forced to purge.. you know.. LOL. Forced to use JJ hapless poor blacks and whites… and so on.

Forced, I tell you…

22. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

You misread me. Try inserting sarcasm and cynical laughter behind the ”forced”.

Or to phrase it a bit differently.

Blagojevich on Obama might be amusing. A simple thief growling about how everybody is as bad as he is and providing illustrations has a certain charm to it, a bit like Al Capone smirking about how all the cops are on his payroll.

But a war criminal and a mass murderer in a delusional dialog with a drug addled white supremacist propagandist with an audience in the tens of millions is terrifying.

It would be a bit like Hitler calling Roosevelt a hypocrite for interning the Japanese.

Actually, in fact, I think Hitler used to give speeches where he mocked the British government as being stodgy old right wingers and brutal imperialists.

23. Madman in the Marketplace - 15 December 2008

that shit about Duncan is horribly depressing. I feel so bad for the current generation of children. They are so well and truly fucked.

24. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

The Democratic party used Jim Jones. Milk too, he did what was convenient.

And the movie didn’t ignore the fact that Milk had to “play the game” like any other politician. But the narrative strategy was to try to transcend it.

There was one scene where a riot is about to break out and the cops “order” Milk to try to calm things down. I just assumed that Milk would do what the cops told him. But instead, he took the bullhorn and decided to escalate the march. It played against the viewer’s own tendency to think in terms of “democratic reformism”.

That was the narrative strategy and it worked.

IOZ wanted to see a different movie.

25. marisacat - 15 December 2008

He was forced to pick Duncan. I am sure of it. Positive. Like investing with Mad-Off. The feeder sold them… they were forced.

26. ms_xeno - 15 December 2008
27. marisacat - 15 December 2008


Go tell IOZ.

28. marisacat - 15 December 2008


B-b-b-b-b-uut Kennedy is the liberal lion of the whole senate! — and he helped. Oh he was forced. I am sure…. as was George Miller… who reads Kozol (on hsi bookshelf during interviews in which he sold NCLB).


29. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

Go tell IOZ

Actually Armond White actually wrote a better hit piece that made more or less the same point.


With Milk,Van Sant polishes the knack of selling back to the mainstream its own convenient Liberal pretenses. He downplays his usual anti-social penchants (pedophilia, prostitution, masochism, murder) and aggrandizes an historical tragedy.

Debating IOZ would be like arguing with a fortune cookie.

30. marisacat - 15 December 2008

Rev Al support Ms Kennedy! Line up those black ministers!

31. marisacat - 15 December 2008


LOL go tell IOZ.

Job cuts adding to growing number of housing defaults

Now, layoffs and the recession are playing the pivotal role in driving mortgage defaults. The 4.3 million people collecting unemployment is the most since 1974, the Labor Department says.

During the first half of the year, about 46% of the 90-day delinquencies on conventional, conforming loans were because of a loss of income, vs. 36% in 2006, according to mortgage giant Freddie Mac.

Job losses exacerbate the situation for homeowners with risky mortgages. “A subprime buyer is already more fragile, so when unemployment rises, foreclosures go up,” says Freddie Mac spokesman Brad German.

Mounting joblessness is also affecting homeowners who may have traditional, 30-year conventional loans but are living paycheck to paycheck.

They tend to be more urban, lower- and middle-class blue-collar workers, says Rick Sharga of RealtyTrac.

“It’s not going to be pretty,” Sharga says. “You’re going to see whole different regions of the country suffer.”

33. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

I would have guessed that the next Senator from New York would have been someone from upstate.

I guess Patterson is confident of getting reelected. He’s going to hand his opponent a major campaign issue.

Maybe he was “forced” into it 🙂

34. marisacat - 15 December 2008

I don’t think it is a given yet he appoints her. People are lining up on both sides.

35. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

The HUGE issue on the front pages of all the papers in NYC today was how Patterson was upset about the Saturday Night Live skit.

That makes him sound like a man under a lot stress.

I guess the Kennedys want to keep the name in the Senate after Ted retires.

36. marisacat - 15 December 2008


We are number 2 in the nation for [sub prime] foreclosures think I have read NV is No 1… but we have the No 1 town… a place called “Mountain Home”… I wondered that I had never heard of it (not that I have heard of every gully wash in the state) … then read it is 5 years old.

LOL built for the bubble and the surge and whatever else.

37. marisacat - 15 December 2008


well I saw the SNL piece as rather too targetted. I mean, a looney blind wanderer?

Go after his politics. Smelled like a paid for hit piece. Manhattanites looking north and doing a job.

Not that SNL is really sharp political humor. Or anything…

38. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

I wonder how many times a day they play “House” on basic cable.

I’m going to have to stop being cheap and pay for HBO or switch to dsl and throw away my TV.

39. Madman in the Marketplace - 15 December 2008

I’m hard to offend, and I even found that SNL thing to be a childish and offensive hit piece. It was a live-action version of Mr. Magoo.

40. Madman in the Marketplace - 15 December 2008

I’m surprised that he’s not coasting in on a cloud w/ a surrounding chorus of angels and cherubum:

Obama, Biden Plan Celebratory Train Trip on Way to Inauguration

When they head to the presidential inauguration, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and their families won’t be making the same mistake as the CEOs of Detroit’s Big Three by coming to the capital on corporate jets. Instead, they’ll be traveling by train.

The president-elect, the vice president-elect, and their families start their journey to Washington on Saturday, January 17. Along the way, they’ll host events in Philadelphia, Wilmington, Del., and Baltimore. The cities were chosen because of their connection to the inauguration’s theme: “Restoring America’s Promise.”

41. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

It was a live-action version of Mr. Magoo|

When you posted that I went looking for offensively racist old cartoons on You Tube. You know, stuff from WWII.

But the most disturbing thing I found was a very dull, sober propaganda film about the Japanese internment.

42. ms_xeno - 15 December 2008

43. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

I’m surprised that he’s not coasting in on a cloud w/ a surrounding chorus of angels and cherubum:

I actually like the idea of his taking a train to DC.

It’s going to mean that the news media will be spending a lot of time talking about the rail infastructure on the east coast (something that Bush intentionally defended in order to punish the region for not supporting him in 2000 and 2004).

Ralph Nader agrees.


Right after 9/11, the airlines descended on Washington, D.C. and got a package of loans, guarantees and other federal assistance amounting to $15 billion.

AMTRAK got just about nothing. But then for this vast nation with large pockets of consistently clogged highways, AMTRAK has been getting very little federal aid since its creation in 1971 as a public service corporation. President Bush wants to cut what little (just over $1 billion a year) AMTRAK receives.

44. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

Why didn’t he just hook up with someone in homeland security?


At least someone’s doing time for spying.

LOS ANGELES – Hollywood private eye Anthony Pellicano was sentenced Monday to 15 years in prison for running a wiretapping scheme that spied on the rich and famous.

45. BooHooHooMan - 15 December 2008

Caroline Kennedy will almost surely get the nod in NY or
The Democrats will threaten to poke Patterson’s eyes out if he doesn’t.

Caroline’s IN.
Why Not?

46. marisacat - 15 December 2008

Except Nader did not write that in response to Obster taking the train. Which, to be frank I don’t see causing media (or Ob and his slobs) to start to chat up a very much needed resurgence of passenger train service in this country. I posted in comments just the past few days that Detroit is NOT our way out (as poor thing Granholm says) but instead mass transportation, with dedicated intercity service and many hubs, is. Non-rubber tired mass transport.

Destruction of passenger service trains in this country was one of the nails.

47. marisacat - 15 December 2008

HA! The Greek police run out of tear gas.

The police have asked Israel and Germany to send them emergency supplies, while protesters claimed that they had been using old stock from the 1980s in a desperate bid to contain the rioting. They claimed that corroded chemicals were causing some demonstrators to collapse and need medical attention.

48. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

They’re using teargas from the 1970s. Scroll down to see a photo.


49. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

Except Nader did not write that in response to Obster taking the train.

True. But more people are going to watch Obama on TV than are going to read Counterpunch.

Which, to be frank I don’t see causing media (or Ob and his slobs) to start to chat up a very much needed resurgence of passenger train service in this country.

Well I’ve seen Rachel Maddow devote large segments of her show to Obama and infastructure projects.

I actually think this is the one area where something could get done. Even Michael Hudson thinks Obama’s likely to concentrate on infrastructure., even if it’s for the wrong reasons.


He’s going to leave Wall Street and the vested interests in the hands of the people who have been a continuity from the Bush administration to the Clinton administration, and he’s going to concentrate on infrastructure and hiring, workplace conditions, the environment. But he’s not going to change the debt position.

50. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

AMY GOODMAN: Michael Hudson, when he’s talking about infrastructure, is he talking about mass transportation?

MICHAEL HUDSON: Largely that. Transportation is certainly the largest—

AMY GOODMAN: I mean, as opposed to highways—as opposed to, you know, highways and roads, but actually mass transit.

MICHAEL HUDSON: Yes, that’s certainly the key. And mass transit in almost every country creates an increase in real estate values along the routes that could actually—the rental increase that’s created by this transportation could actually finance the entire transport system.

51. marisacat - 15 December 2008

What is the viewership of Maddow… among the not already faithful?

The trick to imprinting is mass adoption by the media. I see it as limited photo ops, harken back to old time pols on trains, cute but uesleess… and not some great embrace of railroading. In the modern sense of turning the country away from being one, as I jsut read, where 5% use mass transit. Ob won’t be climbing big mountains.

Sorry, I see Ob doing less rather than more. All he has done is step away away away… look away Dixieland.

Meanwhile wandering the UK press the past few days… they seem able to print some horrifying numbers that Detroit resuscitation will grow to … from 40 billion USD to 150 billion USD.

52. Hair Club for Men - 15 December 2008

Well Michael Hudson is arguing that the infastructure projects will happen because there are corrupt people who are going to make money off of them and Obama wants to enable them.

That’s not the best of all case scenarios but if it means I don’t find myself in ten years rudely awaked to find myself plunging into the sludge of the Pasaic River on the way to the city, I’ll take it.

Mike Davis actually makes the same point about LA public transit. It was the corrupt fatcats in LA who wanted to build a subway system on the scale of NYC’s. It was the good government types (with a little help from General Motors) who killed it.

53. Madman in the Marketplace - 15 December 2008

I’ll believe it when I see it, the mass transit thing. Frankly, if anybody in that admin is going to push for it, it’s Biden, but I’m not holding my breath.

Ob and crew are purely about preserving the “best” parts of the status quo.

54. marisacat - 15 December 2008

I’ll tote up the scoreboard as Ob exits. Sorry… all he has done is slip slide away. Weaken and prevaricate.

And I saw how long it took to build BART, in the late sixties and seventies… over budget, late, the guy who designed the braking system was kind enough to pop off from a massive heart attack the day the braking system failed… LOL… and what we got was a worker delivery system. Of limited benefit but needed to expand the ‘burbs. It has been proven over and over it has never worked at full unitilisation. But here we are. Still servicing the burbs… which are now in some trouble, tho people have to live somewhere. And with higher gas costs it did get busier. Not caught an update on what ridership is as gas falls under 2$

We have in SF one fo the highest, if not the highest, ridership in the nation, of the MUNI, the city system. And getting anything is pulling teeth. In the good times of the dot com we got a lot of new electric buses, finally after decades. LOL when dot com dot died they admitted they would nto have spent the money had they seen the bubble burst coming.

It would be nice if Ob were soemthing new, he is not.

55. BooHooHooMan - 15 December 2008

60. BooHooHooMan - 15 December 2008

We could fix alot of this via Constitutional Amendments and better swearing in and Inaugural Rituals

First you’d have the Primaries wherein candidates would enter for money , fight for better position, only to drop out and survive in better bargaining position.. In Other words, keep it the same..

Then, you’d have the General Elections, where immediately upon results, the winners would be sworn in, or quickly Inaugurated as the Presidential case may be,
then all summarily buried chin deep in sand on The MALL.
and Stoned to Death by Millions while broadcast on Live TV.
Then, Governors could LEGALLY get to Sell Senate and Congressional Replacements. Of course, The Military , Corporate and Oil interests could then step directly in to quell the chaos. With MORE Chaos. Which, of course could also be televised, Webulized, Box Setted, You Tubed, Twitter’d and ITuned…

{ Ew Look!…
there’s Martha in DC with Dodd’s Head on Facebook! HaHaHa!}

It would shrink the growth in government, satisfy State’s Right’s Types, be more transparent, and The People™ could feel they really have a hand in things. Especially the Stonethrowers on the Mall.
The rest of us could merely be entertained….before Drafted.
Maybe even for a run ourselves…

I was especially entertained by John Nichols running all over The Nation to defend JJjr. Geesh. Nothing to say.

64. BooHooHooMan - 15 December 2008

LOL, the Nation

No Bullshit about it, there….
they have a “warn this person” button.

Oh, I suppose we shouldn’t be too critical of Markos’ dailykos…
They do call theirs a “Hide” button.

One possible solution by itself shows what a mess this is: Waiting to hold the race so it coincides with the local elections scheduled for next year, with the primary on Feb. 24 and the general election on April 7 — leaving Illinois without a second Senator for four months.

Works for me!

Ah well soon All Will Be Revealed By Dave.
poor Dave, Not Patterson this time ,
the Blog guy from Queens … again.

Holding the Dem torch for Caroline believing
her rise has anything to do with her personal qualities
be they as they may or may not be…
And the boy was so close to seeing Schumers involvement in other matters but not this …hmmm.

Here, on his Obsession with Major Flaw he speaks
of Secret Squirrelling Messages to media

I dunno, There is something lovable about Big Blog Lunatics.


Facts have been checked big time (5.00 / 1)
I wrote it as if I was not in the story.

What’s opinion is classified as opinion but most of it is simply him in his own words.

His real life identity was basically revealed at ugog by him.

What I did is use his words to tell the story.

As for my envelopes (Yes they exist, I binded up several copies for certain media sources and am picking my sources for hand delivery or regular mail. There are several online supporters who are onto it. The envelope version includes the summary I have and gives a little more about Markos toward the end but the first 18 pages are MajorFlaw.

2 pages are an introduction
2 pages are an interpretative summary of MajorFlaw’s conduct based on his comments.
1 page is a neutrally written biography of the man.
The other 13 pages are him in his own words revealing his very ugly side and double life. Most of these 18 pages are the story for Wednesday. Give you 1 example from pages 12-13 that was more on the comical side.

______ on gay guys and his ass. (His name deleted)

I’d like to tell you about a couple of gay guys who got the wrong impression until I had to beat the shit out of them but I”m not that good of a creative writer. Never had an issue. Perhaps the reason I never ran into a gay guy who was after my ass is that I’m an ugly SOB. Perhaps it’s because I never went looking for one. UGOG 10/23/08

Note the writing style. I say very little.

Who knows? Maybe WEDNESDAY AT 7!
Tucker Fuckin Carlson
will have been forced to pick up Dave’s Piece,
revealing himself as
the bathroom gay bashin homophope / Kos Kop bogger by night,
and MSM / secret Weiner Consultant by day…

I tried to help the guy, but this is headed for an ignominious fall…

Are the envelopes in case Dave is…………killed? Immobilised? Kidnapped? Lost?

68. BooHooHooMan - 15 December 2008

Maybe there are instructions
to arrange an exchange on a bridge, light rain, foggy night …

Hopefully lottsa liquor.

69. catnip - 15 December 2008

Envelopes? Am I on the mailing list? I like getting mail. Hello? Dave?

70. catnip - 15 December 2008

(I think Dave has a Fitzgerald complex.)

Any wiretap transcripts, Dave?

71. BooHooHooMan - 15 December 2008

If you can supply the liquor, catnip,
you can be the Canadian connection.

It will tie in nicely with the Kennedy / Chicago Mob coverup.

72. catnip - 15 December 2008

Obviously I don’t cite all 463 pages. However I do provide the link to it with my media packet.

“media packet”?

And he’s breaking this on a Wed nite at 7pm?

I think he needs an agent.

Dave, do you need an agent? I work cheap.

73. BooHooHooMan - 15 December 2008

I think dave is an enigma, wrapped up in a squirrel.

74. catnip - 15 December 2008

71. If you can supply the liquor, catnip,
you can be the Canadian connection.

I think I know someone who can hand over a fairly big stash of screech.

75. marisacat - 15 December 2008

It sounds like we need conceal carry laws, if we are going to continue to blog.

So much danger. And I no longer own a classic trench coat. Gosh. Improper drag.

76. catnip - 15 December 2008

Regarding comments, no omitting words inside sentences.

I do provide a brief interpretative summary of how I categorize his behavior.

Oh! I hope that comes with a video of interpretative dance too.

Wow. This is getting exciting!

Everyone’s invited over to my pad for Chanukkah.
