30 Seconds

Idiot Boy gave another speech this morning. The title of this post is approximately how long it took him to invoke September 11th.

And I quote:

"It's the first year that every class of midshipmen at this academy arrived after the attacks of September the 11th, 2001." (emphasis mine)

Kee-rist! It took him less than a minute. In the first sentence of the main body of his speech (after the Thank you's and the lame joke.)

I suppose we should consider it a small miracle that he only mentioned it one other time (as far as I could tell). Perhaps Rove has gotten the message on that score.

However, also by my count, the words "terror", "terrorist", or "terrorism" was used 49 times. The word "freedom" was used 22 times. Some things never change.

As for the speech itself, it was the same as has been given dozens of times before: Stay the course, don't cut and run, when they stand up we will stand down, blah, blah, blah, etc. Nothing new.

By the way, have you all noticed how much bush has aged lately. I mean, here's a side by side comparison of what he looked like at the beginning of his term (on the left) and what he looks like today (on the right):

Also, DUIbya has been "Google Bombed" again.

Seriously. You can go to Google, put in the word "failure" (sans quotes) and press "I'm Feeling Lucky" and you get the official White House biography page of George W. Bush!

This has always worked for "miserable failure", but it also now works for "failure".

And in case you wonder why he's such a failure as president, here's a handy reference guide.

BIG Mistake!

After reading (and re-reading) this very funny online comic strip based on the Half-Life 2 FPS game, and then reading more about the game in this wikipedia article, I decided I'd see what all the fuss was about. So I went out and bought the game (BTW: Cost = EXPENSIVE!)

Mistake. Big, big, BIG mistake!

That was one week ago. And I've been playing it ever since. Life = consumed by this game.

I've been playing it almost constantly. I must admit that parts of it can get really frustrating--after being killed by the snipers for the 20th time in a row, I nearly tore out what little hair I have left (those of you not familiar with the game have NO freaking clue what I'm talking about!) And it takes forever to load, save, and re-load. Plus I have the infamous stuttering bug (again, those unfamiliar with the game don't know what I mean--but this comic panel gives some explanation.

At any rate, I'm close to the end of the game at this point, and there better be one damn BIG payoff, considering the fact that I've barely slept, bathed or eaten since I started playing it (although I DID take time off from it for Thanksgiving--a man's gotta keep his priorities straight!)

Of course, as soon as I beat the game, I'll probably start all over again...

OOOOHHHHH YYYEEAAAHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


"Oh come and sing Ohio's praise,
and songs to Alma Mater raise.
While our hearts rebounding thrill,
with joy which death alone can still.
Summer's heat and winter's cold,
the season's pass, the years will roll.
Time and change will surely show,
how firm thy friendship,


So long, Loyd. It's been nice knowing you!

Bush WAS Right--Dammit!!

It seems that according to ThinkProgress, an ultraconservative group called has taken it upon itself to get the song "Bush Was Right", by The Right Brothers, a conservative musical group, onto the MTV airwaves.

Here's a sample of the lyrics:

Freedom in Afghanistan, say goodbye Taliban
Free elections in Iraq, Saddam Hussein locked up
Osama’s staying underground, Al Qaida now is finding out
America won’t turn and run once the fighting has begun

Don’t you know that all this means…
Bush was right! Bush was right!

I swear to Christ I'm not making this shit up!

Seriously. Here's the link to the audio clip.

Look out Arlo Guthrie! Here come The Right Brothers!

At any rate, Rightmarch wants the future video of this song to be played on MTV's Total Request Live. And, if it isn't, it's apparently a case of censorship on MTV's part. That's right--the video doesn't even EXIST yet, and already MTV failing to show it is censorship. It couldn't possibly be that the song sucks more than a cheerleader at a frat house kegger!

It's getting harder and harder to make fun of the wingnuts when they seem to be doing such a good job all by themselves.

Speaking of the video, it appears that MSNBC's Keith Olbermann has supplied his own video for the audio snippet of the song that's been released. Crooks and Liars has the video here.

(Y'know, I'm starting to become more and more a fan of Keith Olbermann. But does anyone else besides me think he may be taking a few pointers from Jon Stewart?!)

Some Assholes Never Learn

In case the title wasn't enough warning, be warned that this post contains some serious harsh language.

You may recall that a few weeks ago we had a huge riot in North Toledo (my post about it is here).

At any rate, this riot was started when a group of Neo-Nazi dickwads decided to come here and stage a rally/march.

Now, this would have been fine if people had just ignored them. But some other people declared their intention to put up a protest counter-march. And some young men (many gang members) decided to use this whole situation as an excuse to start looting and rioting. It was a sad situation. There were several injuries, and dozens of people were arrested. Thankfully, however, no one was killed. This time.

I say "this time" because a few days ago the Neo-Nazis announced their intention to return to Toledo on December 10th and stage another protest, this time right on the steps of the Government Center in the heart of Downtown Toledo. That's right. These cock-juggling thunder-fucks (thanks for the phrase, Naked Critic!) are coming back. And this time, they'll be in the heart of downtown.

I hope people have learned their lesson and will stay away from this one (I don't plan to be anywhere near it) and I hope the news crews will leave their cameras at home.

But I sincerely doubt it.

Because, you see, the title of this post did not refer to the Nazis. It's a given that they are assholes who never learn (The Nazis were VERY BAD, you fucktards!) No, the title of this post refers to the people who just can't seem to realize that attention is what these Nazi douchenozzles want. The fact that they were able to incite a riot without ever even holding their march had to make them happier than a child molester at an orphanage. And now, they're coming back for more. And there's a good chance that they may incite another riot.

So to anyone who plans to protest their rally I say this: Stay. Home. If we ignore these people, they will go away. If no one pays attention to them, they will quickly realize that Toledo in December is a cold, uninviting place, especially if you're standing on the steps of the government center (something about the design of the building produces a nice wind-tunnel effect in the building's front plaza) and they will crawl back under whatever rock they came from.

And to the Neo-Nazis, I say this. Go. Away. We don't want you here. If you want to go somewhere, go over to Israel. I hear they're very big fans of Nazis over there...something about always giving them a "warm" welcome.

(They're so stupid, they just might fall for it!)


She looks like she could support the President, the Vice President, and most of the cabinet all at the same time.

Yeah, I know, it's been more than two weeks since my last post. But lately I've been busy. Plus I've also been feeling like this:

I'm slowly recovering, but you can expect a "Weighing In" post in the next couple of days. I want to talk about a lot of things!
