I hope to get this popping again sometime in December 08/ January 09 once I reign in life (ha) a bit.

Events occur more than one at a time in the world.
Grandpa really can't go to D.C. sign some paper, fly back and debate for 90 minutes?
And if Palin is so ready, why can't she hold the fort?
She's established herself as an expert on Russia because she can see it.
Has she ever looked at money? Because that knowledge by osmosis power she has would be awesome right now.

"Mad Men want to be me like I'm Don fucking Draper."
To understand this video hit the link below.
And check this if you have no clue who Don Draper is then please correct that.
And their gutter sex talk matches anything Cam'ron/Dipset puts out.
"Good things come in threes,
So I'll need you on your back, your stomach and your knees."
Please use that line this weekend.

(He thought this was over?)
What kind of white privilege fuckery is causing Obama to feel he is responsible for paying for Hillary Clinton's debt?Is this some bizaaro version of "white guilt?"No one told her to pay Mark Penn a million a month and buy golden donuts for her staff and to keep running well after it was impossible for her to win.And now he has to beg his donors to pay off her debts?Between this, FISA, and the 2nd amendment dust up, Obama and I might need a little break.

Motherfuck me. This insane child rapist lives to make another shitty soap opera, while Michael Vick sits in jail.
I wonder what would have happened if Vick had an underage female Fight Club and R. Kelly was raping dogs?
To paraphrase Dave Chappelle,

Stories like this make me give up on Africa,
Discrimination against albinos is a serious problem throughout sub-Saharan Africa, but recently in Tanzania it has taken a wicked twist: at least 19 albinos, including children, have been killed and mutilated in the past year, victims of what Tanzanian officials say is a growing criminal trade in albino body parts.
Many people in Tanzania — and across Africa, for that matter — believe albinos have magical powers. They stand out, often the lone white face in a black crowd, a result of a genetic condition that impairs normal skin pigmentation and strikes about 1 in 3,000 people here. Tanzanian officials say witch doctors are now marketing albino skin, bones and hair as ingredients in potions that are promised to make people rich.
If albinos had magical powers, why the fuck would they die in their 30's of skin cancer?
“This is serious because it continues some of the perceptions of Africa we’re trying to run away from,” he said.
But the killings go on. They have even spread to neighboring Kenya, where an albino woman was hacked to death in late May, with her eyes, tongue and breasts gouged out. Advocates for albinos have also said that witch doctors are selling albino skin in Congo.
“People say we can’t die,” he said, referring to a superstition that albinos simply vanish when they get older. “But we can.”
Police officials said the albino killings were worst in rural areas, where people tend to be less educated and more superstitious. They said that some fishermen even wove albino hairs in their nets because they believed they would catch more fish.
Some of these mother fuckers deserve some malaria.

I find it sad that you need to subscribe to some specific brand of mysticism to be taken seriously in American politics.
Obama, who grew up fatherless and without a connection to his racial identity had to overcompensate in a sense, by joining this seemingly crazy-ass Chicago church and linking up with Reverand-Black Brains are different from White Brains-Wright, so that the black zombies in Chicago would vote for him.
It clearly worked for him until it didn't and the god of tribalism came back to collect its dues by associating Obama with every person who walked past his church..
While this bias in association has some racial background, it's really more about the failings of the black church to provide anything useful for their flock.

And caving in to her most recent screed. According to Michelle Malkin, Rachel Ray's scarf in the Dunkin Donut ad below was "too Middle Eastern" and made it easier for Dunkin Donuts to suicide bomb delicious confectioneries in the stomach's of America (I made that last part up.)
Here's what Malkin actually said,
So it was with some dismay that I learned last week that Dunkin' Donuts spokeswoman Rachael Ray, the ubiquitous TV hostess, posed for one of the company's ads in what appeared to be a black-and-white keffiyeh.
The keffiyeh, for the clueless, is the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad. Popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos, the apparel has been mainstreamed by both ignorant (and not so ignorant) fashion designers, celebrities and left-wing icons.
Here is Rachel Ray's pic from the ad with Dunkin Donut's apology.
- ‘‘In a recent online ad, Rachael Ray is wearing a black-and-white silk scarf with a paisley design. It was selected by her stylist for the advertising shoot. Absolutely no symbolism was intended. However, given the possibility of misperception, we are no longer using the commercial.’’
Why do conservatives, after nearly a decade of social, economic and foreign policy failure still have this kind of power?
If I was Rachel Ray I'd tell DD to eat my fucking donut hole.

(Oi with the blackness and the name!)
As Obama begins to shed the filth that was Hillary and the Democratic primary and heads towards the general, he continues to be evaluated through his "problems" with various demographics.
- Obama's women problem
- Obama's working class problem
- Obama's rural problem
The truth is these group's have problems with Obama because of their own fucking ignorance.
Women believe that Hillary failed because she's a woman and not because she's a spineless, war-mongering self-obsessive. They think McCain won't overturn abortion because he's a "maverick."
Working class people who think Clinton, being a $100 millionaire who can't use a coffee machine or a gas pump really gets them deserve four more years of being chewed up and spit out by our capitalistic machine.
I won't even touch rural whites.
And now the newest bullshit issue is Obama's Jewish problem.
Email smears going around questioning Obama's committment to Israel have forced him to adopt a more hard-line love for Israel with less of the nuance he seems to bring to other issues.
- Some Jewish voters are turned off by his willingness to negotiate with countries like and . Others reject Obama because of e-mails spreading false rumors about him.
Before I go in I have to defer to Friedman's column in the Times that summed up a good part of this issue,
- Pssst. Have you heard? I have. I heard that Barack Obama once said there has to be “an end” to the Israeli “occupation” of the West Bank “that began in 1967.” Yikes!
Pssst. Have you heard? I have. I heard that Barack Obama said that not only must Israel be secure, but that any peace agreement “must establish Palestine as a homeland for the Palestinian people.” Yikes!
Pssst. Have you heard? I have. I heard that Barack Obama once said “the establishment of the state of Palestine is long overdue. The Palestinian people deserve it.” Yikes! Yikes! Yikes!
Those are the kind of rumors one can hear circulating among American Jews these days about whether Barack Obama harbors secret pro-Palestinian leanings. I confess: All of the above phrases are accurate. I did not make them up.
There’s just one thing: None of them were uttered by Barack Obama. They are all direct quotes from President George W. Bush in the last two years. Mr. Bush, long hailed as a true friend of Israel, said all those things.
It took months of liberal digging and prodding until they forced Hagee's record out into the open and made McCain reject Hagee's endorsement after actively seeking it.
But what can you expect in this country when white radicalism is the norm. This is a country that had picnics around bodies of black men swinging from trees.
Fuck a MySpace, killing blacks was the original social network.
Thomas Friedman had another point,
- Personally, as an American Jew, I don’t vote for president on the basis of who will be the strongest supporter of Israel. I vote for who will make America strongest. It’s not only because this is my country, first and always, but because the single greatest source of support and protection for Israel is an America that is financially and militarily strong, and globally respected. Nothing would imperil Israel more than an enfeebled, isolated America.
THANK YOU. Hyphen-Americans should care more about America and less about the hyphen. Why is it that Israel gets its own unique fucking consideration as a foreign policy issue?
Why do Jewish/Israeli-AMERICANS worry first about Israel?
I'm Carribean/American and no one has explained their jerk chicken/shrimp roti policy to me yet.
Can I get a free trip to Trini Carnival in 2009?
Can John McCain do the dutty wine with a Red Stripe in hand/
And we make Machel Montano's "Craziness" the national anthem?
Also, what do politicians think about Nigeria, Iceland or Australia?
Oh what's that?
Nobody gives a fuck.
I understand that Israel is in a geopolitical shit zone that needs constant monitoring and support but they are not our perfect and holy ally.
They fuck up. Badly.
See their last war.
Our blind support of and refusal to seriously criticize Israel does more harm than good.
Israel is a country that has been exposed as a nation that SPIES ON AMERICA.
Think of another Middle Eastern country that could do that and still receive more foreign aid than any other nation in the world.
Yet Jewish people still insist on supporting candidates that enrage the Middle East and give Israel carte blanche.
If you care more about Israel than America did George Bush really make your country safer?
Is that region of the world better off now than it was 8 years ago?
I understand Obama's need to fight double standards and ignorance at every corner he turns but these smears on his real record force him to take positions that alienate him with those who realize that Israel is flawed, like every country in the world.
But the resistance toward Mr. Obama appears to be rooted in something more than factual misperception; even those with an accurate understanding of Mr. Obama share the hesitations. In dozens of interviews, South Florida Jews questioned his commitment to Israel — even some who knew he earns high marks from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, which lobbies the United States government on behalf of stronger ties between the U.S. and Israel.
“You watch George Bush for a day, and you know where he stands,” said Rabbi Jonathan Berkun of the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center.
Many here suspect Mr. Obama of being too cozy with Palestinians, while others accuse him of having Muslim ties, even though they know that his father was born Muslim and became an atheist, and that Mr. Obama embraced Christianity as a young man. In Judaism, religion is a fixed identity across generations.
Anyone that thinks Obama has any racial advantage in his run for presidency needs to peek out their window.

White boy becomes first white valedictorian of Morehouse.
- From his first day at Morehouse College — the country's only institution of higher learning dedicated to the education of black men — Joshua Packwood has been a standout.
His popularity got him elected dorm president as a freshman. His looks and physique made him a fashion-show favorite. His intellect made him a Rhodes Scholar finalist. His work ethic landed him a job at the prestigious investment banking firm Goldman Sachs in New York City.
But it's his skin that has made all of this an anomaly. This month, Packwood is set to take the stage and address his classmates as the first white valedictorian in Morehouse's 141-year history.
Obama supporters discover "America."
- For all the hope and excitement Obama's candidacy is generating, some of his field workers, phone-bank volunteers and campaign surrogates are encountering a raw racism and hostility that have gone largely unnoticed -- and unreported -- this election season. Doors have been slammed in their faces. They've been called racially derogatory names (including the white volunteers). And they've endured malicious rants and ugly stereotyping from people who can't fathom that the senator from Illinois could become the first African American president.

So there was another dumbass horse race today that I saw written up on ESPN and the 2nd place horse, Eight Belles, snapped both her ankles while racing against the boys and had to be put down.
Hillary somehow blamed Obama for it.
Sure this is sad in a very vague and fleeting way, until you think of all the real suffering in the world, but what really gets me is all the horse-racing apologists on the ESPN comment page who try to ignore the fact that horse racing is destructive and unnatural to horses.
Some of the fucktarded comments stated,
- The horse was brave
- The horse made a great sacrifice
- This was a completely unexpected tragedy
Here are the facts,
"Cruelty is an inherent part of the horse racing industry. Thousands of horses are produced annually, from which a few racers are chosen, the rest blown away like chaff in the wind. The big money is in racing the 2 and 3 year olds, for whom training begins at 1½, before their bodies are fully developed and their growth plates have closed. Unnatural weight is put on their backs, concussive stress on their bones, and they are forced to submit to an overly strict training regimen. Nightmarish injuries like on-the-track fractures leave them finished by the age of 4–6, when they are barely mature. Decisions about their fate are made in the interest of the bottom line dollar, not their health. Injured animals are loaded up on drugs to run one more race.
"The unnatural stresses inherent in competing so aggressively and at such a young age also engender problems such as gastric ulceration and pulmonary (lung field) bleeding, not observed in horses worked at reasonable levels. These health and injury problems once again necessitate — economically — the use of drugs to maintain the horse’s racing value (but not well-being).
So let's see, animals are breed to compete solely for the pleasure of humans and are killed if they can't perform. Sound familiar?
Let's be real here, horse racing is a glorified, upper-class white folk version of dog-fighting.

I think I saw some people burning dollars by the soup kitchen in my hood.
I think it's time we all stop pretending that rap speaks to everyday black people anymore than a board meeting at Exxon speaks to the everyday white person.

Expect these same journalistic standards in the WSJ soon.
Here's some more Republican awesomeness to start your day with.
- A congressional candidate is defending his speech to a group celebrating the anniversary of Adolf Hitler's birth, saying he appeared simply because he was asked.
Tony Zirkle, who is seeking the Republican nomination in Indiana's 2nd District, stood in front of a painting of Hitler, next to people wearing swastika armbands and with a swastika flag in the background for the speech to the American National Socialist Workers Party in Chicago on Sunday.
"I'll speak before any group that invites me," Zirkle said Monday. "I've spoken on an African-American radio station in Atlanta."
So blacks are equal to Nazis. I love this country.

When I first saw this poster I didn't think "Oh noes! Not the 9-1-1!" until I saw a bunch of blogs bring up the connection.
As a NYer who was hit hard by 9/11 I think it's time to get the fuck over the hypersensitivity and enjoy the new Batman movie.

Riots for profit and justice!
If Sean Bell doesn't get justice tomorrow, I'm putting a garbage can through a window and copping a HDTV and at least two PS3's.
Bring your duffel bags.
Thank the judge in the Sean Bell case at his home. (Peacefully with a letter...)

(Look at me! I'm controversial!!!)
When Nas released Hip-Hop is Dead everyone ignored Nas' own contribution to rap's downfall (Nastradmus) on the strength of Illmatic alone. Well it's reached a point where being the man who created Illmatic is no longer enough to excuse Nas' bullshit.
By now you've heard of this "Nigger" abortion that Nas has been working on. Apparently something from it leaked and it's worse than you could have ever imagined.
The hook is borrowed from the old Dr. Pepper commercials with the lyrics "I'm a Pepper, he's a Pepper, she's a Pepper, we're a pepper/ Wouldn't you like to be a Pepper too?" — with Nas' substituting N-word for "Pepper."
Later in the song, he continues: "To all my 'kike' niggers, 'spic' niggers, 'guinea' niggers, 'chink' niggers/ That's right, y'all my niggers, too."
The song's verses are lyrically combative ("Nas is bred for the plan/ To hold a Grand Dragon's head in my hand") while still dropping references to events old and new, like the October slaying of African Reggae artist Lucky Dube.
"Not mad 'cause Eminem said 'nigger,' " Nas raps. " 'Cause he's my nigger, wigger, cracker friend/ We all black within/ We all African/ Some Africans don't like us, no way/ A killing happened in Johannesburg yesterday."
"Be A Nigger Too" — co-produced by Salaam Remi and Big Jack — is the first record to come out from the Nigger recording sessions, but it is a street leak; the official first single is expected soon. News about the album's title unleashed a flurry of controversy last fall.
Sweet fucking Jesus.
I'm all for free speech, so I wasn't knocking Nas on his selection of an album title as much as I was knocking him for being too stupid to offer any insight on the topic and he's proved me right. This album isn't smart enough to warrant the controversy it will bring.
These old NY rappers dreaming about the glory days on 1994 need to step up to the fucking plate and make some music and stop the crying and shock tactics. What Nas is doing isn't advanced the "art" any more than Soulja Boy or the Ying Yang Twins.
The sooner Nas realizes that the better off we'll all be.
