It comes out in dribs and drabs… I read somewhere months ago he was told to cool it with the late night clubbing and dhowing up here and there.. and immediately went to some less than salubrious hang out. I figured it meant morewas there.

Plus he and his wife were smart when he ascended, they quickly got out in front of marital issues and seeing other people.

But my guess is……………………….. more of the same. (nto that I care… but geez don’t these guys realise our political system? They surely do.)

Off to read, I was just at Gawker and did nto see it… must have just gone up.

the thread is very pithy…

Madman in the Marketplace - 6 February 2010

I really don’t think a lot of people care, ESPECIALLY in NYC.

marisacat - 6 February 2010

i agree… Willie outhere had a out of wed lock child n his last years as mayor… hardly anybody noticed… Newsom and his first wife were most likely each others’ beards and except for the Castro laughing at everyone who laughed it off…………………….. (tho it does raise his scuttling gay marriage over and over)…

but there can be twists… and sad to say I don’t care who falls anymore — or how.

Tea time! (You betcha.)

Listening to Palin is like listening to nails on a chalkboard.

catnip - 6 February 2010

Palin looks like she’s sitting in front of a gigantic penis. I’ll have to find a pic of that to link to when one’s available.

marisacat - 6 February 2010

Hopefully Yahoo News accommodates… 😆

Madman in the Marketplace - 6 February 2010

Todd’s standing there behind her?

Did he call Hitchens a cryptofascist?

Madman in the Marketplace - 7 February 2010

The latest salvo is in this month’s Vanity Fair where, in an article headlined “Vidal Loco”, Hitchens launches a stinging attack on Vidal, claiming that the events of 9/11 “accentuated a crackpot strain” in the author.

Says the man who sees islamofascists around every corner since the attacks, justifying illegal wars and torture?

MANY people were unhinged by those attacks, and Hitchens was plainly one of them.

“hopey changey”….

well, 😆 how’s that vote working out for you?

marisacat - 7 February 2010

… and on that very question…

and, btw, if that vote is working for you, CLAIM THE WARS as your own. Drop the weak game of being against the wars.

London Times:

THE discovery of three American soldiers among the dead in a suicide bombing at the opening of a girls’ school in the northwestern Pakistan town of Dir last week reignited the fears of many Pakistanis that Washington was set on invading their country.

Barack Obama has banned the Bush-era term “war on terror” and dithered about sending extra troops to Afghanistan, but across the border in Pakistan, the US president has dramatically stepped up the covert war against Islamic extremists.

US airstrikes in Pakistan, launched from unmanned drones, are now averaging three a week, triple the number last year. “We’re quietly seeing a geographical shift,” an intelligence officer said.

For the past month drones have pounded the tribal region of North Waziristan in apparent retaliation for the murder of seven CIA officers in Afghanistan by a Jordanian suicide bomber working with the Pakistani Taliban.

Last week America launched its first multiple drone attack, according to Pakistani security officials. Eighteen missiles were fired from eight unmanned aircraft in Dattakhel village, killing 16 people.

The discovery of the dead US soldiers revealed that America’s shadowy war in Pakistan not only involves drones but also small cadres of special operations soldiers.

Among the Pakistani public, there has been outcry at the attacks. Surveys constantly show that Pakistanis consider the US a greater threat than the Taliban, despite 3,021 Pakistani deaths in terrorist attacks last year.

If the drones are controversial, the presence of US soldiers on Pakistani soil is far more so. Despite a $1.5 billion (£959m) aid programme, Robert Gates, the US defence secretary, had to fly into Pakistan two weeks ago to reassure its military leadership. “Let me say definitively the US does not covet a single inch of Pakistani soil,” he told Pakistan’s National Defence University

yes, just like we don’t want to have operations inside Yemen… etc. Africom… on and on it goes.

And, of course, the exposition last week, in the exchange between Hoestra and Deny (as the pretzel calls him) Blair about assassination / extra-judicial killings we may carry out against US citizens.. how long til we bellow we took out Awlaki, the US born cleric that we have linked ot both Hasan of Ft Hood and the panty bomber..

IF we believe what we say, that is.

From The Scotsman:

What the doctor ordered for Hitler – bull semen and speed

Date: 06 February 2010

By Alan Hall

NEW research on the fragile health of Adolf Hitler has discovered he was on 82 different sorts of medication during his rule of Nazi Germany. ….

Such a catch! How long til Crist of FL comes over? (Let’s make a deal!)… or not? No announce after he met with the Ob.

Whatever! creates mayhem!

LANCASTER, Pa. – Even as he accepted the resounding backing of the Pennsylvania Democratic state committee here Saturday, party-switching Sen. Arlen Specter’s vulnerability was on vivid display as he botched the name of a key Democratic officeholder in his acceptance speech.

“I’ll be fighting hard for the entire Democratic ticket. Senator Andy. . . Andy . . .” Specter said, before pausing briefly, squinting his eyes.

“From Chester County,” he continued, losing his train of thought after clinching an emphatic 229-72 U.S. Senate endorsement vote from party regulars just minutes earlier.

“Dinniman,” the crowd responded almost in unison, referring to the state senator who represents West Chester. One committeeman seated in the audience dropped his head and shook it.

The minor gaffe notwithstanding, Specter’s impressive ability to round up a supermajority endorsement from the party he joined just nine months ago – on the snowiest weekend of the year – showcased his political muscle and bolstered his frontrunner status in his primary campaign against Rep. Joe Sestak.

Yet at the same time, Specter managed to underscore his still-tenuous ties to a new party with a core of voters that isn’t yet ready to embrace him without reservation. ….

😆 and then some. Hey, may he win. Such a peach!

Blaming feminists for all the world’s evils is nothing new.

Angry Mouse – new FPer, member of the sanctimonious womens’ studies set.

“Angry mouse”, what does that telegraph? A tiny little mouse scuttling around the edges, raising a fist?

Super Bowl prediction: Saints by 10 (even though I don’t watch US football and despite hearing that Payton Manning is, apparently, G*d.)

marisacat - 7 February 2010

I thought I might watch this one……. Probably my second. I am sure i watched the time the 49ers went, Super Bowl XVII… and as little i know, I knew they would win.

marisacat - 7 February 2010

Apparnetly The Who will play at half time.

And truly, the Sunday Soaps hit rock bottom today… I don’t knwo which was worse, Wallace with Palin… Gregory with Greenspan and a stuttering (really badly) Paulson – or Tapper with Geithner.. who answered nothing. All he said was how “hard” they are working. Funny, they LOOK limp.

Schieffer just decamped and went to the Sun Life Bowl… and doesn’t that sum us up? Nearly die trying to stay alive but there will be a cheap FL condo for you. Somewhere. Or not.

Gah.

11. mattes - 7 February 2010

hmm. wonder how that’s going to work out.

An exit poll predicted Sunday that opposition leader Viktor Yanukovych has been elected Ukraine’s next president, with voters apparently favoring a leader who will steer the country away from the pro-Western course set by the 2004 Orange Revolution.

Well I think they were wise to reject the woman, the one who affects a German girl-child hair-do from the pre war… she and hers are too close to the American hard right, can’t remember which US House member she worked for, one of hte turly terribles… and of course the Neo Liberal support as well.

As if the “Orange Revolution” was nto a engineered joke.

I had a photo tucked away on the old computer of Hillary McCain and Liberman all decked otu in orange mufflers. Did they ever look funny.

12. marisacat - 7 February 2010

well.. something blew up in CT.. a power plant.

Politico:

President Barack Obama told Katie Couric during a Super Bowl pregame interview that he plans to hold a health-reform summit with congressional leaders later this month. “I want to come back [after the Presidents’ Day congressional recess] and have a large meeting — Republicans and Democrats — to go through, systematically, all the best ideas that are out there, and move it forward,” Obama said.

Seriously? He STILL thinks he can get the Repubs to get on board?

marisacat - 7 February 2010

I was just going ot post that… I turned on CBS but i may have missed the All Important Interview witih Ob…

then read that at Politico.

[banging head against wall as they convene to beat a dead horse]

Well IMO ALL of the wimmens in politics are utter crap, so if someone swinging their ass in moderation (get a life) on a Sunday with good weather wants to tell me I sound like palin and try so hard to mean it as an insult:

who fucking cares.

I don’t see the lecturing, worry wort bag of nag democratic wimmens as any different.

and … CLAIM THE WARS, if that vote is working out so well for you.

Take a hike. Go hang with the Obamaites.

16. catnip - 7 February 2010

w00t!! Go Saints! 30-17

catnip - 7 February 2010

I can’t believe I’m actually watching this… Mind you, it’s on practically every fucking teevee channel.

catnip - 7 February 2010

I am SO almost psychic! 31-17. I should seriously start gambling. 😉

catnip - 7 February 2010

You guys have such a tiny trophy. Our Gery Cup is huge.

marisacat - 7 February 2010

I started out iwth it and fell asleep twice… 😉 Missed half time… and everything else…

catnip - 7 February 2010

Half time was good – neat light show. But I was waiting for “Who the fuck are you?” – to no avail. 😦
