    Nance, http://detroitblog.org/ features a guy who used to walk through the Pointe with a possum on his shoulder. Ever see him?

    This is news for Detroit….Did you know there’s a tire company that has put scent into their tires? And they think it is a marketing advantage. Fancy that!

    Who held the gates. I’d say it was

    Who held the gates? I’d say it was Ray Nagin. Not any Republican.onfusion in the Heron House. If there wasn;t great damage, ot was becaise great ddamage was done on the Republican watch a few years ago, they can kiss the Ninth
    wards’ ass.

    I doubt there was ever a possum in the Grosses, but there was surely a possum in Bloomfield Hills. Mean bitch, and my mom took her on. We knew about that from growing up in West Virginia on the banks of the Tug Rive in abject West Virginia. I’d say it was more gnarly but hot half as trailer park.

    A political announcement followed me home today. Please don’t take my picicture. I had a bad day. There was a disturbance in the Herron House. Morons think Sting and Bono sing truth. The little pimple faced boy that tried to buy beers at Ted Hardy’s salloon did. Standing on the shoulders of giants leaves me cold. lLeaves me cold. is so much better than making it up on the fly with Kyrie. The little turd wasn’t even Shane McGowan. And anybody would be goddamned to try to find a melody in the pretuned guitars and the pompus nonsense of U2. But we could make up something about anybody. We don’t like somebody, he’s a monster. We did make it up and he’s just a sad guy that you’re family hated because he was a moron that loved your sister. You stalked this guy. You ruined his life. Because you could. What’s the evidence abainst the guy? You say so? You’re a stalker. It is impossible for you to deny this. You’re the governor and you’re a stalker. Holy shit, you idiot, you stalked the guy.

    The chief is a spectacularly good person. Not true? Well she is. She wouldn’t lie to anybody and she wouldn’t lie to anybody. She might fudge the truth. She believes criminals shorld get convicted. Who doesn’t?

    Ray Nagin isn’t a crimnal and karl Rove is responsible? Despicable pieces of shit.

    Sarah doesn’t lie. If you believe that horseshit you could not be stupider. Holy shit, what an idiot. What the hell is wrong with people? They’re so goddam stupid it’s frightening. People can’t be that fucking stupid, can they?

    How is it that anybody in good conscience supports a political party that engineered the Swiftboat crap. All’s fair? Including lying your ass off in service to a weasel that bailed on the Tejas National Guard and then did the same thing to Alabama?

    Those are not allegations, they’re facts. What is wrong with people? The current administration actually told y’all that Saddam blew up the WTC. What sort of cognitive dissonance is involved in not calling these assholes liars? I think it’s fairly certain American troops committed atrocities and war crimes in VietNam. Lieutenant Calley said so, and we support our troops. Does pointing this out make you un-American? Well, no, it makes you American, if you aren’t some scum-sucking Nixon toady in white bucks like Paul O’Neill.

    The point is just that the Republican Party lies, cheats and steals American souls if it means resorting to racism or questioning an opponent’s patriotism. Why does anybody put up with this garbage? Maybe I’m naive, but I don’t get it. Mass hypnosis? Facts of this matter are clear and undeniable. They lie. They malign and slander American citizens that have served the country honorably, they promote sleazy bastards that never did any such thing. Which part of this canard do voters not get?

    Is it about ‘framing’? Sorry, I think a rational human being’s reaction to the idea that ‘framing’ works is launching from a tall building. There isn’t a human race just so we could be manipulated by so many Screwtapes. Funny, if you believe that’s wrong, you believe the TV preachers and the Bushes have been lying all along, and the assholes are working for Randall Flagg.

    Dan Quaill made W look like a warrior. His wife made Mrs. Cheney look like a hack pornographer by writing hack PNAC spy pornography. Reagan was a sad case. Poppy bailed on his buddies. Ollie North was a whole lot more American terrorist than Johnny Taliban. Henry Kissinger murdered Allende and installed Pinochet, a butcher, a true star.

    If there’s a country worth saving, it’s worth saving from Mr. Keating Five. How does he skate on that monstrous criminality. Oh. He’s a Republican.

    Whew!

    Know what’s the funniest thing about the flying nun pick? Conservative columnists went full goose loony over the idea that the Obama campaign didn’t ‘vet’ Hillary, as if that were necessary. Harry and Louise made their bogus case a couple of decades ago. Believes in universal health care. What a jerk.

    Seems like McCain looked at Sarah’s tits and the campaign called that vetting, because, after all, that would get those Hillary die-hards. Ya know, cleavage. If she takes off her glasses does she become miraculously ravishing?

    Did y’all know that ‘vetting’ actually means having a veterinarian check out a horse to make sure it’s up to a race? With no snowmobiles.

    Is there anything more foul, Republican and Mordor-like than a Snowmobile. Well actually, Ski-Doos. Nowhere. Nohow.

    N,
    Caliban has turned from the drunk in the corner of the bar that we all put up with, into a raging alcoholic that we wish the owner would throw out and ban for awhile.

    I’ll second that, Joe K.

    I mean really, the vitriol I’ve been reading on this site the past few days. Do we need to adjust our meds?

    Caliban — i’m still curious about your take on the Waugh/Orwell (Blair) book. Do you find the connection credible, or is it just a thesis in search of absent data?

    You don’t sound drunk or off meds, just venting through the anonymity of the keyboard. There’s worse personal management plans one could follow . . . “self-medicating by blog”, in the upcoming DSM V!
