That's right, Hussein.

I feel like I have been derelict if I do not read Juan Cole every day.

Letting down the troops, if you please.

His post here, is less war and more politics.

When you see or hear an anti-intellectual, this is the kind of stuff they are preaching against.

Facts...nototious...bias...just...theory (mushy sound of head exploding).

First and foremost I want to say that my Fireblade has been a noble steed. Dependable, inexpensive to maintain and always eye catching (not to mention wicked fucking fast). I bought her new in '94. She was an early release 2003 model. I lucked out and found 2 still in crates at Stubbs Honda on Telephone Rd.

Like my earlier bike, I preferred the black scheme to the white (caveat: the white CBR600F was much better looking than the white 900RR).

Meine Damen und Herren, ...........Motoerotica.

This was taken in Oct., 2005 in Valles Caldera on State 4.

The fallback plan was trout fishing. Never got around to that.

Siyonara, Bitch!

You will always be a part of me.

So Sen. Ex-Mr. Elizabeth Taylor thinks Obama is full of shit about scrounging in Afganistan. Says, not on his watch.

I call Bullshit!

How come Wesley Clark knew it in May 2007?

Notice that General Clarke mentions Warner by name.

John Warner has besmirched his office and endangered members of the Armed Forces for whom he was and is personally responsible.

at least the Brits are reporting it.
Was there ever any doubt (since, Ohhhhhh......2004) that
the current mal-administration would leave a stinking pile
of scat on it's way out the door?

On cults

As a quasi-functional member of the reality-based community, I would like to advance Sarah’s post on the Cult of Obama.
Smart people have created frameworks which allow them to study cults. At Orcinus they get that.
Funny (as in "The milk tastes funny!"), that people throw terms around as if they mean whatever the author requires.

Orwell's humour

For my buddy Andy,
linkie-poo to Orwell's "Funny, but not Vulgar".


but Doctor

Some on the intertoobs act as if they had a PH.D, or something.
Some of them do.

Sssshhhhh, I don't want him to hear us!
