"Sanity" in an insane world?

PZ thinks shrillness might be not such a bad thing, and has some thoughts about today's rally in DC.

Spooky Stuff

I'm afraid wingnuts have ruined my enjoyment of Screamin' Jay doing his schtick with this song, but I have to say that Marilyn Manson is a fine replacement:

Good grief. I think this all started when that old guy apologized to Dick Cheney for allowing his face to get in the way of his shotgun.


Glenn writes scathing posts that make his targets uncomfortable, as they should! What I really like is when they respond - it's clear he has gotten under the skin.

Like telling fire not to burn

As you can imagine, I get a lot of junk email from Democrats asking for money or asking me to sign petitions, etc. I just got one that made me laugh out loud, and it had this subject line:
Tell Karl Rove: Stop The Lies
Please. I really do fear for the future of the Democratic Party.

Got this from Firedoglake yesterday morning:

We don't have a tent

Amen to this. I don't know about "ideological purity", but Democrats need to decide they stand for something besides just winning elections.

Whiny Juan

Oh good grief. I had the news on for about 2 seconds this morning before I had to turn it off again in disgust because Juan Williams and a parade of idiots were all over the airwaves whining about how wrong it was for NPR for taking his "one little comment" so "out of context" and blah, blah, blah "Should NPR give him his job back? - Well, yes, they should!" Makes me want to throw up.

Firing that asshole was one of the best things NPR has done in recent memory and now if they get rid of Cokie Roberts and quit featuring bloviators from the Heritage Foundation and AEI, I'll consider renewing my membership.

UPDATE: Lawyers, Guns and Money

So Infuriating

And they wonder why there's an "enthusiasm gap"? This is why. See also; read to the end for the real life consequences of another favorite Republican cause, "Tort Reform". When Democrats act like Republicans, it's difficult not to lose "enthusiasm" for their support.

Well, at least there is some good news today. Talk about a long overdue move.

And to further cheer us up, Amanda has not one but TWO good posts up about the recent Surge in wingnut-nuttiism: Post One and Post Two. Also, too, really - don't miss it!

Not Shrill Enough

I know that some find Glenn Greenwald too harsh in his criticism of Barack Obama but I find that I rarely disagree with his assessments. This is absolutely no exception.


I'm going to dress up as Christine O'Donnell for Halloween.

Now they're REALLY in for it...

I give those poor Chilean miners less than a month in the media spotlight before every single one of them wishes they were back down in that hole.
