In the whole Perez Hilton vs. Carrie Prejean mess, I was one of many liberals who sided with Prejean (and no, not because she's a member of the Pad Squad). I don't agree with her stand on gay marriage, but she's entitled to her opinion. Oh, and Perez Hilton is a douche.

If it had ended there, fine. But of course, it didn't. As it turns out, Perez Hilton was the best thing to happen to her. Now she's a hero to conservatives (not hard to do, see Plumber, Joe The), and is making the media rounds.

The latest on Prejean is that Miss USA paid for her boobs. Ironic, sure, but I don't really care.What bugs me is no she's now a part of this National Organization for Marriage nonsense. That's totally her right. But that her opinion about gay marriage has suddenly morphed into an aggressive campaign against it has quickly turned her from someone I had a little empathy for to someone I cannot stand.

Oh yeah, note to Ms. Marriage is "something that is very dear to my heart": YOU'RE NOT MARRIED.

But at least I finally get the chance to post this:

notre dame

All the controversy over pro-choice Barack Obama giving a commencement speech at Notre Dame has me wondering: must applicants to Notre Dame pass some sort of litmus test to ensure that their positions on issues converge with those of the Catholic Church?

If it's an outrage to have a pro-choice President speaking to your students, then surely it would be an outrage to have pro-choice students. Or students who use birth control. Or students who believe in the death penalty. Or students who support gay marriage. And so on.

So I'm going to go ahead and assume the student body at Notre Dame is 100% pro-life, abstinent (unless married, in which case they do not use any birth control), anti-death penalty, and anti-gay marriage.

If this is not true, then there is no controversy, right?

just say no

All you need to know about the Republican game plan is contained in the nomination of Kathleen Sebelius for Secretary of Health & Human Services. As Yglesias points out, this is not a controversial pick. It's not the Attorney General. W's first nominee, Tommy Thompson, was approved 100-0. His second, Michael Leavitt, was approved by voice vote. With the exception of Gale Norton (not exactly a friend of the environment) for Secretary of Interior (75-24) and the position of Attorney General (a position always prone to controversy), all of Bush's cabinet members ultimately received significant Democratic support. 

So Kathleen Sebelius, moderate Senator from freaking Kansas, gets approved, with a whopping SIX Republican votes, 65-31.

For Secretary of Health & Human Services.

During a swine flu pandemic. 

Unbelievable. Olympia Snowe, George Voinovich, Richard Lugar, Susan Collins - I obviously don't agree with y'all on everything, if not most things, and you piss me off a lot of things. But if the day comes where you need to change that 'R' next to your name to a 'D' or 'I', I'll completely understand.

colbert conservatives

I'm a little shocked that any conservatives watched Colbert. But the ones that do are not very bright.

There was no significant difference between the groups in thinking Colbert was funny, but conservatives were more likely to report that Colbert only pretends to be joking and genuinely meant what he said while liberals were more likely to report that Colbert used satire and was not serious when offering political statements. Conservatism also significantly predicted perceptions that Colbert disliked liberalism
I didn't realize there was a sarcasm gene. I guess not everyone has it.


oppressing the masses

Rick Perry, secessionist Texas governor:
"Millions of Texans... are tired of Washington, D.C. trying to come down here and tell us how to run Texas," Perry said at a press conference about his decision. "The 10th Amendment was enacted by folks who remembered what it was like to have a very oppressive government, to be under the thumb of tyrants in an all-powerful government. Unfortunately, the protections it guarantees have melted away over the course of the years... I believe the federal government has become oppressive. I believe it's become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of its citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state.
Rick Perry, embracing oppression: 
Gov. Rick Perry has asked for 37,430 courses of anti-viral medicine from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention because of the swine flu outbreak.

among the living


The Pentagon says a Marine based in Southern California has been confirmed to be ill with swine flu and is under quarantine, along with his roommate.

A Marine spokesman at the Pentagon, Maj. David Nevers, said the sick Marine is doing well and his condition continues to improve.

Nevers said approximately 30 others who had been in contact with the sick Marine at the Twentynine Palms base will be held in quarantine for five days as well as to see whether they show symptoms.
We don’t have our copy of The Stand handy, as we probably left it on a school bus or something, in the 1980s, but let’s see, Army dude sick with the Superbug, escapes a desert military base in California and infects the whole Southwest before he dies, does that sound about right?
 And if you don't know, yeah Twentynine Palms is in the California desert.

byron york is a tool

This is your conservative movement: 
On his 100th day in office, Barack Obama enjoys high job approval ratings, no matter what poll you consult. But if a new survey by the New York Times is accurate, the president and some of his policies are significantly less popular with white Americans than with black Americans, and his sky-high ratings among African-Americans make some of his positions appear a bit more popular overall than they actually are.
That's Byron York, who somehow continues to get paid a lot of money and have a national platform, even though he believes that the opinions of African-Americans should not really be considered. Ridiculous.

Bob Odenkirk appeared last night as lawyer Saul Goodman on Breaking Bad. It occured to me that my life needs much, much more Bob Odenkirk.

kobe burger

In Vegas a few weeks ago, I had to try the Kobe Burger at the Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay. I chose sauteed onions and blue cheese on mine. Obviously, at around $16, this isn't actual Japanese Kobe beef (I don't know what the standards are to get away with calling something Kobe beef), but it was a damn fine burger - it makes my all time top ten. It's still not as good as the Squeeze with Cheese at the Squeeze Inn in Sacramneto, but no burger I've had is.

coffee fiend

I already have a drip coffee maker, an espresso machine, a french press, and a Toddy cold brewing system. So the last thing I need is another way to make coffee. So of course, this weekend my Aeropress arrived. Similar in concept to a French Press, but produces a concentrate sort of like a Toddy. For something that resembles a penis pump, the Areopress has gotten rave reviews. Could it possibly live up to them?

Believe the hype. This produced the smoothest cup of coffee I've had. Not a hint of bitterness, and you can taste caramel undertones Easier to use than I thought, and way easier to clean than I thought. I'm stoked. Recommended.


wings 'n' things

It always creeps me out when a restaraunt's mascot is a jovial version of the animal you are about to eat. Usually this animal is about thrilled to be cannibalizing a fellow animal. We've all seen it - think of the smiling pig with a chef's hat and apron on, or with a knife and fork, ready to dig into some pork. It's creepy. But Wings 'N' Things (which, by the way, I love) has taken this concept to a disturbing new level:
He's happily basting himself. SO YOU CAN EAT HIM.

christ on a crutch - kill william bennett ep (1990)

Christ On A Crutch. One of the more underappreciated bands of the late 80's/early 90's.  The fact that they relocated from Washington, D.C. to Washington state always confused me. Where are they from? Washington!

Bassist Nate Mendel was in Sunny Day Real Estate, and is now in the Foo Fighters. Which means that the shitty Foo Fighters are composed of former members of the awesome Christ On A Crutch, Scream, Nirvana, and The Germs.

schlong - pooploops ep (1994)

Think of Operation Ivy. That Tim Armstrong would go on to form Rancid makes a certain amount of sense. That Jesse Michael's future music would take a mellower vibe with reggae undertones also makes sense. But Dave Mello joining Schlong? I wouldn't have predicted that.

Had the pleasure of seeing them twice, once in Fresno in 1994, and a reunion show in Sacramento a few years ago. They were amazing both times. Schlong is one of those bands you have to see to fully get it. On the surface it may all seem like one big dick/piss/poop joke, but these are some extremely talented dudes. Plus, Punk Side Story
 is one of the greatest things ever.

Anywho, I had to use Audacity to fix a couple of skips my record had (hey there's a game - see if you can find the edits!), so if you would like a "pristine" version, go here and purchase The Unessential Schlong, which has the Poop Loops EP and a bunch of other stuff.

I don't listen to the radio much, and when I do, I'm usually horrified, for various reasons. The lastest reason is this AutoTune bullshit. Do people really dig that? Because, and this may just be my inner Grumpy Old Man speaking, I think it's the worst thing to happen to music since the Keytar.

name that expletive

It's early in the season, but I already love Padres closer Heath Bell. I don't want to talk too much baseball lest I jinx the Pads, but here's what Bell had to say about ESPN's New York bias:
"I saw ESPN's promo for tonight's game. They mention the Mets are opening Citi Field, they mentioned the starting time, but nowhere did they mention the Padres. That gave me the (expletive)."
"I truly believe ESPN only cares about promoting the Red Sox and Yankees and Mets – and nobody else," said the closer, a former Met. "That's why I like the MLB Network, because they promote everybody. I'm really turned off by ESPN and 'Baseball Tonight.' When Jake Peavy threw 8 1/3 innings on Saturday, they showed one pitch in the third inning and that was it. It's all about the Red Sox, Yankees and Mets."
I agree with everything Bell says. But I am having a hell of a time figuring out what expletive fits in there. That gave me the shits (or as MM would say, the drizzlin' shits)? Nah. Besides being way TMI, that doesn't make sense. Why would he say that? So what did he say? I'm going through my mental curse word file, and nothing fits. Any guesses?

city of god

Reading about John Demjanjuk, a former Nazi guard who had been living in Cleveland, Ohio, was giving me some serious deja vu.  But then it struck me; last year I read City of God, and in that book a NY Times writer secretly goes to Cincinnati, Ohio, where a former Nazi guard has been living, and ends up killing him. I have no deep insights on this, I just found it a little eerie. Was the story in the book actually based on Demjanjuk?

I did find his lawyer's comments to be a little ridiculous. When your client is accused of (allegedly) being a guard at the scene of 29,000 murders, maybe you should bite your tongue before saying things like:
"It's just a shame that Mr. Demjanjuk had to go through the hell that he went through once again this morning,"

thenceforward - from within ep (1995)

Released in 1995 on Phyte Records. Hardcore that toes close to the dreaded metalcore line. When they keep it fast, I like this a lot. When they slow it down, I lose interest. But "No Reason" reminds me of another Georgia band, Quadiliacha. And reminding someone of Quadiliacha is ALWAYS a good thing.

mclaughlin predictions 01-25-08

MR. BUCHANAN: Hillary, Giuliani, Thompson will all endorse McCain.

Of course Guiliani and Thompson would fall in line, that was a no-brainer. The bold prediction here is that Hillary would endorse McCain, and that did not happen. +0

MS. CLIFT: Barack Obama will get another red-state governor endorsing him. And on Super Tuesday, he will win more red states than Hillary Clinton.

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson did later endorse Obama in the primary. Using 2004 results to determine red state status, Obama won Missouri, Idaho, Alaska, Georgia, Alabama, Kansas, North Dakota, Colorado & Utah. Clinton won Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Arizona,& New Mexico. So 2 for 2 for Eleanor, though 1 is the maximum points per week. +1

MS. CROWLEY: This week the Russians launch long-range missiles into the Atlantic off the coast of France and Spain. Vladimir Putin, even though he's giving up the presidency in about six weeks, he will continue to stoke Cold War tensions to hold on to power.

Well, the Russians already had launched the missles. That's not a prediction. And that Putin would continue to stoke Cold War tensions, well, duh. Let's not go out on a limb there, Monica. +.10

MR. ZUCKERMAN: My prediction was exactly that of Pat's, except for the fact that I don't support Romney on these issues. (Laughter.)

Pat was wrong, and so are you. +0

MR. MCLAUGHLIN: Before Thanksgiving this year, the U.S. unemployment rate will climb to 7 percent.

December 2008 = 7.2 percent. +1

sd transit

I live in Hillcrest, work in Mission Valley and often have to travel from work to Downtown. I’d love to ride public transit and stop using gasoline. I can’t do that because our transit system sucks ass. It takes me about six minutes to drive to work, but it would take nearly an hour to get there by bus and trolley. It’s completely infeasible. So, because I’m among the 97 percent who drive, the U-T assumes I choose to drive and vote by turning on the ignition.
I am in the same boat of wanting to take public transit, but looking at least quintupling my commute time if I did. So, I should not be counted in the 97% the article cites, either.

mclaughlin group predictions

Friday nights, The McLaughlin Group is still a guilty pleasure of mine. Some weird combination of John McLaughlin saying absolutely crazy things, Monica Crowley being the stupidest woman on the planet, me agreeing with Pat Buchanan on a frighteningly regular basis, Eleanor Clift being exactly right on everything in the most annoying fashion, and Lawrence O'Donnell ranting about Mormons captivates me. Plus it always reminds me of this, JACK GERMOND!

Yeah, it's a stupid show. Like I said, guilty pleasure.

Anyways, the end of the show usually has predictions, so I thought I'd start reviewing them and see who, if anyone, deserves any sort of respect.

First up: 01/19/2008.

MR. BUCHANAN: Because the Democrats, all of them, say all our troops will be out within a year, combat troops, General David Petraeus will be a major player in the campaign of 2008, this year.
Nope. Petraeus wasn't insignificant, but he did not affect the election. +.25

MS. CLIFT: You heard it here first: Wisconsin Governor Tim Pawlenty likely to be the Republican running mate, whoever gets the nomination.

Nope. Sarah Palin. +0

MS. CROWLEY: Things have been relatively stable in Pakistan since the Islamic fundamentalists took out Benazir Bhutto. That is all going to change. The militants look at this as their moment. They're starting to encroach on some of the big cities in Pakistan. And you will see increasing destabilization and perhaps even the elimination of President Musharraf.

Mostly true, although I cannot stand Crowley, so it pains me to say. +.75

MR. ZUCKERMAN: We are heading in for the worst recession, I believe, since the Depression. We are going to have a recession that's going to last more than a year. We will have a 6-and-a-half to 7 percent unemployment rate. We will have a drop in the federal funds rate to below 3 percent, and it still will not cure the problem of huge losses, both in the housing market, which will drop by another 10 percent going into next year, and in the credit markets, which have unimaginable losses, in the literally hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars.

Uh, yeah. +1

MR. MCLAUGHLIN: I predict that on January 30th, one week from Wednesday, the Federal Reserve will cut the interest rate 75 basis points, three-quarters of 1 percent.

I have no idea. Looking here, it looks like it was cut .21, but I don't know if I'm reading the right number. +.25

soothing sounds for baby - pure imagination (1993)

Info on SSFB is really sparse. I know that they were from Massachusetts, active in the late 80's and early 90's, and a google search shows that they're all still involved in the entertainment industry in one form or another. There are a myriad of ways to describe them; I would call it indie pop, with a slight post-punk element mixed in. Oh, and the lead vocals kind of sound like Trevor Moore from The Whitest Kids U'Know, even though it is most definitely not. Oh, the end of Ugly Town cuts out abruptly - that's intentional.

the great electrosol rebellion of '09

I'll give you my Cascade when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.

I mean, seriously, a ban on selling a certain kind of detergent leads to this rhetoric:

At what point do the people tell the politicians to go to hell? At what point do they get off the couch, march down to their state legislator’s house, pull him outside, and beat him to a bloody pulp for being an idiot?

Sounds like a completely sane response.

If the GOP plays its cards right, it will have a winning issue in 2010.

Yes, run on that. Please.

Were I in Washington State, I’d be cleaning my gun right about now waiting to protect my property from the coming riots or the government apparatchiks coming to enforce nonsensical legislation.

Because the government will have goon squads coming door to door checking for Electrasol.

The comments are comedy gold.

Have you ever seen the movie, 'Falling Down'? Go rent it. Really. Little things can add up pretty quickly and spur a full-scale riot.

this would be so great for a tea party, everyone pour it down the drains, on the sidwalks, or have car washes, something rebelllious.

Didn’t you people see Smokey & The Bandit? It was a huge hit in 1977 because it hit a cultural nerve (It wasn’t the acting nor the plotline). Clean air & gas mileage meant emasculated cars, downsized cars, mandatory 55mph. And you couldn’t buy Coors beer east of Texas. So Smokey hops in a badass TransAm and sticks it to the Man.

The Key Is Not To Fire The First Shot. The Other Side will have to do that. It probably means a nice family somewhere, or maybe even a whole town, will have to get mowed down by the Obamabots. But, and this key - if they fire the first shot, we make sure we fire the last shot.

For instance, I believe that there should be a list…a “living” list, (you know, in the same vein as a “living” constitution). The list would necessarily contain names of proven “statist” subversives, to be updated regularly....Individuals appearing on such a list , (those whose names would be the most worthy of opprobrium), could possibly be eligible for such niceties as tar and feathering, or being run out of town on a rail, (or whatever the modern equivalent may be)
