When Numbnuts Advise Novices

Digby has a great point here: I just heard CNN’s week-end money team giving stock tips to their viewers to “recession proof” their lives. Now, I don’t doubt that there are great buys to be had in the market and that some people may be in a position to invest right now and make some …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. ZOMG, Steve Benen’s taking a few days off. Publius is justifiably amazed. I’m already feeling withdrawal symptoms. Thankfully, he has a full cast of guest bloggers keeping up with the stupid in Steve’s absence. It takes a World Wide Web to manage that task. And the second Steve steps …

May I Have a Moment of Silence for Sen. Specter’s Incumbancy?

Alas, poor Arlen. We knew him, America: Well, it’s official: Arlen Specter has no chance. Unmoved by Specter’s reversal on EFCA, his right-wing opponent has unleashed The Most Ultimatest Weapon: It turns out that his main conservative primary challenger, Club for Growth president Pat Toomey, is going to get the ultimate in blessings from the …

I Have Been Called Out

STEVEinMI writes: Dana, I love your writing, but I have to take you to task for this post. There are PLENTY of details in the Republican “budget” “plan”. And there are numbers too! Real numbers! So many that I couldn’t fit them here! Read ‘em and weep: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2009/3/27/91658/3389 I’ve read Steve’s post, and I am …

How I Feel Today: Moving Edition

It’s that time in the moving process when, upon being faced with yet another box to unpack, you either want to do this: Or this: No store seems to carry the two-shelf bookcases I wanted for the bedroom. I can’t get the phone jacks to work. And the new super-awesome shower caddy I bought doesn’t …

All Aboard!

‘Tis that time. If ye haven’t jumped aboard with yer submission clenched in yer teeth, ye’d better get leaping. I want to see all o’ ye on the ship by the end o’ day Friday. Captain Z be expectin’ ye! Email yer submissions and prepare to make mayhem!

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. For those who are eagerly watching continuing coverage of my moving adventures, we’re settling in. Or, at least, trying to. The cat has developed certain ideas about the new place, like believing it’s a good idea to meow. Continuously. From 3:00am until 5:30am, to be precise. I think she …

Comedy Gold

Or, at least, this is hella amusing if you’re exhausted from moving, and it’s probably funny even if not: Earlier today, Sarah Palin decided to cut and run from a confrontation over her decision (a.k.a. political grandstanding) to turn down a portion of Alaska’s share of the stimulus money: Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) backed out …

Does Pissing Off Real Plumbers Seem Like a Good Idea to You?

It really doesn’t, does it? I mean, these are big, muscular guys with lead pipes to hand. Okay, maybe not lead – not anymore – but still, pipes. Heavy. And pipe wrenches. And attitudes. And no patience for fake plumbers: The Plumbers Union is steaming over the news that Joe the Plumber has been enlisted …

Random Observations on Living in a New Place

My cat has become a balcony slut. In the old place – y’know, the one with the awesome view of all the tasty water birds in the pond – my cat would remain outside for about thirty seconds, tops, before demanding to be let back inside. Here, she’s at the door the second I start …
