Wanted: Straightjacket and Tin-Foil Hat…also – musket for up-coming second American civil war if Obama looses…


It seems that the final days of the presidential campaign have made Erica Jong and her friends more than a little anxious.


“The record shows that voting machines in America are rigged.”

“My friends Ken Follett and Susan Cheever are extremely worried. Naomi Wolf calls me every day. Yesterday, Jane Fonda sent me an email to tell me that she cried all night and can’t cure her ailing back for all the stress that has reduces her to a bundle of nerves.”

“My back is also suffering from spasms, so much so that I had to see an acupuncturist and get prescriptions for Valium.”

“After having stolen the last two elections, the Republican Mafia…”

If Obama loses it will spark the second American Civil War. Blood will run in the streets, believe me. And it’s not a coincidence that President Bush recalled soldiers from Iraq for Dick Cheney to lead against American citizens in the streets.”

“Bush has transformed America into a police state, from torture to the imprisonment of reporters, to the Patriot Act.”

[Story] Emph. – mine

Rigged voting machines? Civil war? Police state? 

Please. That’s so 1930’s Benito-style. It’s time Live in the Now….ya Dig?

Here in America, we settle intellectual disputes by writing books and papers, holding public debates, and through ballot boxes – not violence. That’s what separates an advanced western civilization from barbarism.

Lay some of that modern-day Amero-ganja in your Jong-Bong and smoke it.


Madonna – rockin’ the Conservatives equal Nazis on global warming

Yeah – that’s pretty sweet, I guess…

AP: A video interlude carried images of destruction, global warming, Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, Zimbabwe’s authoritarian President Robert Mugabe—and U.S. Senator John McCain. Another sequence, shown later, pictured slain Beatle John Lennon, followed by climate activist Al Gore, Mahatma Gandhi and finally McCain’s Democratic rival Barack Obama.

This is a great exercise in protectionism, as (realist) Mark Steyn points out:

The biofuels debacle is global warm-mongering in a nutshell: The first victims of poseur environmentalism will always be developing countries. In order for you to put biofuel in your Prius and feel good about yourself for no reason, real actual people in faraway places have to starve to death.


Whether or not there’s very slight global cooling or very slight global warming, there’s no need for a “war” on either, no rationale for loosing a plague of eco-locusts on the food supply. So why be surprised that totalitarian solutions to mythical problems wind up causing real devastation? As for Time’s tree, by all means put it up: It helps block out the view of starving peasants on the far horizon.

I’ll admit – this isn’t exactly fair…But it’s funny.

Oh the Humanity: Ron Paul Blimp Launches

Oh what? You thought this thing was just a joke?


Here’s the Flickr photo group of the launch.

Ron Paul Recieves The Dreaded…Jar-Jar Endorsement.

JarJar & Paul

When asked his reasoning for endorsement Mr. Binks told reporters, “Da day start okeday wit da sunnup. Me tinken bout’ WTC7. Den, Boom! Chem Trails every which way, dey flyen, dey scooten… Me get bery scared. Den me seesin’ the Ron Paul Blimp! Mesa here!” Mr. Binks went on to add, “Ron Paul no giben up witout a fight. Wesa warriors! Wesa got a gwand army. Dats why yousa no liken us, I tink.”

I guess this really seals the deal for me…

Oh…along with this fine specimen of craptitude:

Besides the Ron Paul Blimp nearly crashing into the sun several times, be sure to note the gigantic vacuous cloud of space gas towards the middle of the piece. A cunning Allegory? No, I’m afraid that’s just a bit too clever for this piece’s pay grade. Plus, be sure not to miss out on the nutter CFR conspiracy garbage at the end.

The real question is: When Ron Paul looses the nomination, and the following election -which is what will happen- what will these people do with their lives? Have to get serious about their homework and chores?

What? Still on the fence? Well, I was hoping I wouldn’t have to reveal something this blatantly damning but…

Ron Paul also thinks Greedo shot first.

I know. Double Ouch.

Dan Rather Reporting Stories That ‘Aren’t Proven Fake’

Hello? Does anyone else see the problem with what he is saying? You don’t report something as true because it hasn’t been proven to be false (in this case – that’s not even true – anyone with a clue can easily tell the documents were faked – Do I seriously have to link to the documents again?). You report things that have been proven to be true. But like I was saying yesterday, the media doesn’t care about truth or understanding. All they care for is the bloody screaming spectacle, because that’s what people watch.

And yet, here you have Mary Mapes defending Rather:

In September 2004, anyone who had the audacity to even ask impertinent questions about the president was certain to be figuratively kicked in the head by the usual suspects.

What was different in our case was the brand new and bruising power of the conservative blogosphere, particularly the extremists among them. They formed a tightly knit community of keyboard assault artists who saw themselves as avenging angels of the right, determined to root out and decimate anything they believed to be disruptive to their worldview…

Instantly, the far right blogosphere bully boys pronounced themselves experts on document analysis, and began attacking the form and font in the memos. They screamed objections that ultimately proved to have no basis in fact. But they captured the argument. They dominated the discussion by churning out gigabytes of mind-numbing internet dissertations about the typeface in the memos, focusing on the curl at the end of the “a,” the dip on the top of the “t,” the spacing, the superscript, which typewriters were used in the military in 1972.

What a typical arrogant media elite response. I’ll just blame those dang conservative ‘bully boys.’ Is this not exactly what I was talking about in the Petraeus post?!? She’s not arguing about the truth and/or facts of the story (which is what the bloggers were trying to point out), she’s upset because anyone would have the gall to actually question the high and mighty media.

Maybe seeing the hard facts once wasn’t enough. I’ll post this again:

Still not convinced? Read This Post: The Bully Boys of the Interenet Here’s an excerpt:

And typography was the least of the issues with the memos. The signatures of Jerry Killian turned out to be forged, for one thing, not unexpected when Burkett created them out of thin air. The format of the memos didn’t match the Air Force standards in place at the time. They referenced military standards that didn’t exist. They demanded that Bush take a physical exam well before his requirement date. The story they reported was that a general pressured Bush’s commander to deep-six his concerns, when the general with supposed Bush connections had retired eighteen months before these memos were written. And so on, and so on.


Bully boys of the Internet? We asked tough questions and did our own fact-checking. In times past, that’s what investigative journalists used to do, before some of them decided to use their power in the media to become hacks and smear artists. Mapes, Rather, and their ilk (fortunately a minority in the profession) cannot abide having Truth spoken to their Power, having to account for their corruption. Three years later, Mapes still thinks she’s above accountability.

Rather and Mapes are both going to end up looking like fools when CBS points to the actual facts about the case – the facts that the ‘new and bruising power of the conservative blogosphere’ came up within a couple hours sitting at home on their couches.
