"28 Day Slater"

This is classic.

Both fans and haters alike will love this short Saved By The Bell spoof.

"Is he Mario Lopez? Or A.C. Slater?"

The reason I haven't been posting anything of substance is because, frankly, this administration (and this iteration of the GOP) is so *completely out-of-control* and is *in such utter denial* that I can barely begin typing without both laughing and screaming.

- uncontrollably -

Therefore, your sense of humor is polarizing. You're transgressive, and you've got a seriously sharp 'edge'--maybe too much for some folks. If they get you, people think you're one of the funniest (and smartest) people in the world. If they don't, they think you're an ass. Whatever, right? While some might question your judgement, your comic intellect is unquestionably respected.

Wow. Has It Been 10 Days?

My shift was put back on 40 hrs/wk, back up from the 30 we were reduced to... so I've been conspicuously absent.

Nothing's happened over the past week-and-a-half anyhow. Right?

Please note that although I removed the Impeach Bush banner (since it decided to stop displaying properly - dunno wtf is up with that) I still want the loser out of office.

"Did 308,000 Cancelled Ohio Voter Registrations Put Bush Back In The White House?"

In the seemingly endless discovery of recent GOP election fraud, some bits of info stand out a little more than others. This one's definitely got my attention:

Did 308,000 cancelled Ohio voter registrations put Bush back in the White House?

by Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman

February 28, 2006

While life goes on during the Bush2 nightmare, so does the research on what really happened here in 2004 to give George W. Bush a second term. Pundits throughout the state and nation---many of them alleged Democrats---continue to tell those of us who question Bush's second coming that we should "get over it," that the election is old news.

But things get curiouser and curiouser.

In our 2005 compendium HOW THE GOP STOLE OHIO'S 2004 ELECTION & IS RIGGING 2008 (, we list more than a hundred different ways the Republican Party denied the democratic process in the Buckeye State. For a book of documents to be published September 11 by the New Press entitled WHAT HAPPENED IN OHIO?, we are continuing to dig.

It turns out, we missed more than a few of the dirty tricks Karl Rove, Ken Blackwell and their GOP used to get themselves four more years. In an election won with death by a thousand cuts, some that are still hidden go very deep. Over the next few weeks we will list them as they are verified.

One of them has just surfaced to the staggering tune of 175,000 purged voters in Cuyahoga County (Cleveland), the traditional stronghold of the Ohio Democratic Party. An additional 10,000 that registered to vote there for the 2004 election were lost due to "clerical error."
[emphasis courtesy moi]

As we reported more than a year ago, some 133,000 voters were purged from the registration rolls in Hamilton County (Cincinnati) and Lucas County (Toledo) between 2000 and 2004. The 105,000 from Cincinnati and 28,000 from Toledo exceeded Bush's official alleged margin of victory---just under 119,000 votes out of some 5.6 million the Republican Secretary of State. J. Kenneth Blackwell, deemed worth counting.


Stay tuned, folks.

In the meantime, read Mark Crispin Miller's "Fooled Again: How the Right Stole the 2004 Election & Why They'll Steal the Next One Too (Unless We Stop Them)" to see the astoundingly comprehensive manners in which the GOP screwed with the electoral process, just to ensure a Bush victory. Astounding.

Well I'll Be Damned...

I was just listening to Majority Report Radio; Janeane brought in a copy of the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition) manual and spoke of just how closely today's conservatives appear to display the symptoms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

Ok, so it cracked me up at first... but then I went on the web and checked it out for myself.

She's right!


1. An exaggerated sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)

2. Preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love

3. Believes he is "special" and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)

4. Requires excessive admiration

5. Has a sense of entitlement

6. Selfishly takes advantage of others to achieve his own ends

7. Lacks empathy

8. Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him

9. Shows arrogant, haughty, patronizing, or contemptuous behaviors or attitudes


I guess Michael Savage has it all wrong, huh? *chuckle*

Shitty McLiarpants Totally *Busted*

"I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees" ...?

Well, that's not what six days of video footage and transcripts show.

From the AP:

In dramatic and sometimes agonizing terms, federal disaster officials warned President Bush and his homeland security chief before Hurricane Katrina struck that the storm could breach levees, risk lives in New Orleans' Superdome and overwhelm rescuers, according to confidential video footage of the briefings.

Bush didn't ask a single question during the final government-wide briefing the day before Katrina struck on Aug. 29 but assured soon-to-be-battered state officials: "We are fully prepared."

Six days of footage and transcripts obtained by The Associated Press show in excruciating detail that while federal officials anticipated the tragedy that unfolded in New Orleans and elsewhere along the Gulf Coast, they were fatally slow to realize they had not mustered enough resources to deal with the unprecedented disaster.


I'm about to go ballistic. Absolutely fucking ballistic.

So what's today's excuse, Bush apologists?

" Well, Mike, these things happen. See?"
