President Barack Obama closes his eyes before he tapes his weekly Radio Address in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, June 2, 2009.
The convention in Charlotte could get more disgusting, but hard to see HOW.
I hope others are wiser and busier than I am and thus are not watching…

We have a winner!! I have no idea who wins this mess of an election (could we have two worse boobs running?) but Mr Fish …
WINS…. Cruel… and true.

“Red flamboyant” beats “rockets red glare…” And it beats most of what is in MSM today for Memorial Day. Such dreck on view. So supportive of war, loaded with knee jerk obeisance to the military….
Is it Slob who is muttering “time for Syria” ? I guess so: Commander-in-Chief. And all that.
Long term, I don’t think we survive ‘war forever – forever war’.

hmm Cockburn has a piece up recounting some level of sexual assault is now a common occurance by police toward women OWS protesters – he details a drag from camera view when a protester took issue with a breast grab and a wrist forcibly broken… and along the way he has this:
It won’t be long before the NYPD kills a demonstrator. It will take that to force the issue of methodical police violence back onto the news pages.
Oh, briefly I would say… it, a cop killing an Occupier, will be briefly in the news. Brief, beyond brief. Other than that, depending on what side of the dividers you are on, sounds like Lara Logan hardly had to leave home.

Shootings here, shootings there, shootings seemingly everywhere… more to come, no question. I landed on this quote riding at the top of an article at Cpunch:
Founded and preserved by acts of aggression, characterized by a continuing tradition of self-righteous violence against suspected subversion and by a vigorous sense of personal freedom, usually involving the widespread possession of firearms, the United States has evidenced a unique tolerance for homicide.
-David Brion Davis Homicide in American Fiction 1798-1860

The Guardian has multiple galleries on cats… It is completely impossible to choose among them, but this fellow was one who stood out (he’s in the “cute” gallery). He is, as she says, fantastical.
