McCain Doesn’t Like to Mention His POW Status and We’re Not Sick of Him Doing It. Meanwhile, Back in Reality…

POW Week continues with an exhaustive expose of POW excuse exhaustion. McCain, in a sad attempt to suck wind from Obama’s sails and blow smoke up the right wing’s ass, brought up – betcha didn’t see this coming – his POW status: “My opponent had the chance to express such confidence in America, when he …

Friday Favorite Show

Television is, for the most part, supremely overrated. Back in the days before this blog and a roommate, when I could throw on the boob tube and leave it running in the background, I used to avoid the networks like bubonic plague. Coworkers would come in blathering about Survivor and American Idol. It astonished them …

Good News! We’re All Insured

So says McCain ball-licker and health-plan guru John Goodman. Daily Kos blogger Texas Tom calls him out: How’s this for another kick to working Americans who are struggling to get by?

Vets to McCain: Shut the Fuck Up

POW Week continues with a chorus of vets speaking out against McCain’s shameless POW peddling. I’m turning the Smack-o-Matic over to them for the evening. Our first wielder, Valtin from Daily Kos, isn’t a vet, but works closely with them and thus belongs in this lineup: I have never been tortured. But I have worked …

Calling on the Computer Gurus

My stepmother’s computer could use a diagnosis, if anyone’s so inclined: Seems like I am constantly getting the little grey box stating Microsoft has encountered an error and must shut down, blah, blah. Then my internet window will just disappear. Then if I am not on the internet, no window opened, a “voice” will come …

Bartenders: Dems Kick Republicon Ass

From the annals of totally useless but thoroughly entertaining news comes this recent study: Partying Republicans in Washington will have to step it up after a recent survey of D.C.-area bartenders praised Democrats as being better tippers and talkers than their GOP counterparts. The survey of 100 D.C.-area bartenders, conducted by Clarus Research Group for …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. We knew it was coming, but it’s still a great and historic moment (h/t Political Animal): Barack Obama, claiming a prize never held by a black American, swept to the Democratic presidential nomination on Wednesday as thousands of national convention delegates stood and cheered his improbable triumph. Former rival …
