Friday Cat Blogging With Photoshop
From 2Millionth Web Log

Let's put Tigger at Liuzza's By The Track...that said, finances and other things are putting off my annual visit to the Fairgrounds by a other thing being a surprisingly strong Blues Festival right here in Red Stick not five minutes or so from my humble abode, and even less of a burden on my wallet.

Then there's Festival International in Lafayette, also a free show, and one that's getting VERY and degree of hangover will determine my Sunday schedule.

Oh, and check out the official poster, designed very talented sister. A bargain, if you ask me.

And, of course, the BIG festival in the city has a second weekend, and, if all works out, I'll be there the last Sunday, and perhaps the Saturday prior. We'll see.

Anyway...enjoy your weekend, wherever you are.
Time For Some Behavior Adjustment

What strikes me the most about this exchange between Al Gore and Marsha Blackburn (video here) is the sheer smug snottiness displayed by the representative. There's not even a measure of professional courtesy or collegiality that one might expect, given Mr. Gore's personal background as Senator and Vice-President. Instead, Blackburn adopts a posture and tone that pretty much any sane individual would consider well beyond annoying.

Then again, sanity and wingnuttery don't intersect...

Shorter Pat Buchanan: if only 'those people' knew their proper place.

Of course, Rove's probably doing what he does best--flat out lying through his teeth--but if he actually believes what he's saying, Karl might want to learn what the term "Banana Republic" (and not the fashion brand name) actually means.

Collateral Damage
From 2Millionth Web Log

Conservative figures put the number of dead in Team Bush's Iraq war is almost 90,000 since 2005 and over 110,000 since the beginning. Plus almost eighty more today.

And they tortured people to fabricate a non-existent Iraq-Al Qaeda link...and when that didn't work, they trotted out another phony excuse.

That's a lot of blood on our hands...
Board of Regents Says No Thanks to Glocktower
From 2Millionth Web Log

Yeah, bad pun, and not-so-good Photoshopping as well, but this is a relief:

The state's top higher education board is opposing a proposal to allow concealed handguns on Louisiana's college campuses.

Arguing in favor of concealed handguns on campus is truly absurd as invoking the ticking time bomb scenario to justify terrorism.

Another Mission Accomplished?
From 2Millionth Web Log

So Dick's strategery is to debate the efficacy of torture instead of the morality. You know, that might work with those who are already objectively pro torture, but it's not exactly a winning argument.

And Just Who is Calling Whom Socialist?

Funny how Team Bush adopted interrogation methods that would've been right at home in the USSR or Red China.
Red Stick Hydroelectric?
From 2Millionth Web Log


A federal regulatory agency is holding meetings in seven cities, including Baton Rouge, on a plan to harness the flow of the Mississippi River to generate electricity from St. Louis to New Orleans.

Free Flow Power Corp. of Gloucester, Mass., wants to place 180,000 small turbines in the Mississippi River below navigational channels to generate as much as 1,800 megawatts of power.

Obviously this is just a start--if nothing else, there will be the need for extensive environmental impact studies...and then you've got to design equipment that can handle river conditions...still, I hope this shows some promise.

Where Waterboarding Meets Stovepiping
From 2Millionth Web Log

McClatchey confirms Dick's motives. You know, the fact that waterboarding produces FALSE confessions might have been a feature, not a bug, for George and Dick. Fuckers.

It's ... a reminder that arguably the three most prominent voices in Republican politics today are Limbaugh, Cheney, and Gingrich.

Crybaby Newt
From 2Millionth Web Log

Jeebus, but the 'nuts really are acting like petulant, whiny, snot-nosed, rat-bastard, spoiled little brats. You've gotta wonder if, deep down, they don't still believe that the world goes away if they close their eyes really, really tight.

Is there any element of the wingnut "philosophy" of infantile selfishness that doesn't have, at its core, a desire to blow things up?
