Let me tell you what's wrong with LIFE....

So I've been watching this new NBC show, Life, on Wednesday nights. Now, truth be told, it has more to do with the lead actor, and the fact that Alan Arkin is part of the cast, but there you are; I watch it. It's the story of a former policeman who was framed and sentenced to life for a crime he didn't commit and then, after 12 years in prison, is found innocent and awarded $50 million in an wrongful imprisonment suit and been reinstated on the police force. He's back on the force because he wants to find out who framed him and why. The premise, I thought, was that his experience had given him a new found way of looking at "life" helped him to solve crimes using unconventional methods.
The first show was good. It didn't give us too much information, just enough to intrigue and keep the audience coming back. I did. But now, after 4 shows, I'm beginning to think the original character has been lost along the way. Charlie Crews is supposed to have found some sort of Zen-like peace in prison and is now this changed person. He has a lot of money but doesn't care about it. He lives in an empty mansion with his ex-con friend, Arkin. The mansion is empty because, like I said, the money doesn't mean anything to him. Or at least, because he's found this inner peace, he doesn't want to money to mean anything to him. But lately he just seems detached and almost bored and lazy.
The guy struts around like a Miami Vice wanna-be. He poses while wearing expensive suits, expensive watches, expensive shoes and expensive sunglasses. Which doesn't make sense to me. If the guy was an ordinary police detective and then in prison for 12 years, where did he suddenly develop this killer style? Did he read a lot of GQ in the slammer? Supposedly, he didn't even know cell phones had cameras but he knows the difference between a tailored suit or one bought off the rack? No. No. That doesn't ring true.
Also, the crime he was convicted of was the murder of a family. A brutal, bloody slaughter. Why would anyone think he did this? Why would everyone he knew, his partner, his wife, his fellow officers, be convinced that he would be capable of such a serial killer like crime? This has never been explained and it needs to be.
And another thing, in the first couple of episodes, he solved crimes because he saw things differently. He was like a hyper aware detective. He used his new found inner peace, to ask questions the other detectives didn't think to ask or to notice things no one else would. But lately, he just seems to be along for the ride. He and his partner stumble across clues or "get lucky." Boring. And about his partner, she was really engaging in the pilot. She's a a recovering addict being given another chance. It was also implied that she's also expected to keep an eye on Crews and report back on him, if he does anything wrong. There are people on the force that would rather he not be there. But this angle has been dropped on recent shows.
Anyway, in the pilot, there was this scene where they break into some suspects house and she gets covered in cocaine powder. She freaks and jumps in the shower and washes it off while her new partner, Charlie, watches in surprise. It was a great scene which said a lot about the character and her addiction problems. Unfortunately, we haven't really visited this subject much in recent shows. At least, not with that intensity and depth.
Now about last night's show and why I don't know if I can keep watching LIFE. The show starts with a woman, wearing angel wings, falling out of a window and hitting the roof of a car. When they get to the scene, it's pretty obvious which window she came out of,but they never discuss the fact that the woman didn't scream as she fell. Was she drugged? Was it a suicide? No, immediately they assume murder. The way they discover the identity of the woman is ridiculous. First, in Los Angeles, where I live, if a woman fell from the sky wearing angel wings, I doubt the police station would be full of weirdos claiming to know the woman. But, in this episode, their offices are full of people, all claiming to know the woman. Crews notices one meek guy allowing everyone to cut in front of him in line and of course, he's the woman's husband. What develops is a connection with the Russian Mob and the introduction of a Russian bad guy, who can't be arrested because he's an informant for our government. The Russian bad guy was the best thing in the show.
But the breaking point for me was when they were trying to get some information from a friend of the deceased Russian angel. They put this huge picture of the deceased, that they'd found in a suspect's home, on a chair directly in front of the friend. Then they left the room and monitored her reaction from the camera in the room. This woman, who was not chained to the table, just sat there staring at this picture. For hours, as the detectives just watched and waited for her to crack. Which of course, she finally did. She started crying. RIDICULOUS!!! The woman could have just turned the picture around, but no, she sits there and faces it. STUPID. STUPID. Why didn't Crews use his new Zen insight to get the information he needed that way. Instead we are forced to watch a scene where a woman stares a picture and the detectives stare at a woman staring at a picture. BORING.
At the end of the show, the Russian Mob guy calls Crewes and for some reason, gives him a clue that leads to his former partner. Gee. How convenient. Wouldn't it have been better if Crewes, because he sees things differently now, would has noticed things about his former partner that he never noticed before. And that these things would have led him to discover the clue himself? Isn't he a detective?
That's all I have to say about that. Oh, except I'll keep watching because of my aforementioned fascination with the lead actor, who by the way, is English pretending to be American. His American accent isn't very good. It sounds like he's from "Joisey." But I can put up with that. It's the bad writing and confusing characterizations that will drive me away.

How old is an "underage male?"

More on Mrs. Lindsay Roberts, the wife of Richard Roberts, Oral Robert's son. The most interesting part of this account is:

"The more detailed account alleges Richard Roberts' wife, Lindsay, spent the night in the ORU guest house with an underage male "on nine separate occasions," and was photographed 29 times with an underage male in her sports car, among other allegations.

She likes young men, but how young? "Underage," I'm assuming, is under 18.

Nothing these self-righteous types do surprises me anymore but their arrogance always does. Allegedly, this woman thought nothing of using OSU property for her trysts and felt perfectly comfortable driving around with these young men. The thought in her mind must have been, "I'm entitled to this."

One less thing to worry about...

"...the Chief of the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division, U.S. Department of Justice, John Tanner, contends that while it's "a shame" that elderly voters may be disenfranchised by new Photo ID restrictions at the polls because many don't have driver's licenses, minorities don't have to worry quite as much. Why? Because "minorities don't become elderly the way white people do. They die first

As a brown person, I am concerned to find out that we minorities don't last long. I'll have to let my 85 year old Mother know she's a freak of nature.

"Mrs Roberts, are you trying to seduce me?"

My only hope is that this story leads to the destruction of the dishonest business built by Oral Roberts on the backs of little old ladies handing over their last two dollars. Oral's son, Richard, is proving himself a chip off the old block, though not as slick as his father. It seems Richard is facing a lawsuit alleging misuse of Oral Roberts University funds. But it wasn't only Richard misusing funds, it seems his wife was busy spending money on "extracurricular activities."

She is accused of dropping tens of thousands of dollars on clothes, awarding nonacademic scholarships to friends of her children and sending scores of text messages on university-issued cell phones to people described in the lawsuit as "underage males."
- A longtime maintenance employee was fired so that an underage male friend of Mrs. Roberts could have his position.
- Mrs. Roberts - who is a member of the board of regents and is referred to as ORU's "first lady" on the university's Web site - frequently had cell-phone bills of more than $800 per month, with hundreds of text messages sent between 1 a.m. to 3 a.m. to "underage males who had been provided phones at university expense."

Underage males? Hmmm. Was she counseling troubled boys struggling with their budding sexualities? Perhaps she was saving them from the evils of "homosexuality?" More things Mrs. Roberts and her husband are accused of....

- Mrs. Roberts spent more than $39,000 at one Chico's clothing store alone in less than a year, and had other accounts in Texas and California. She also repeatedly said, "As long as I wear it once on TV, we can charge it off." The document cites inconsistencies in clothing purchases and actual usage on TV.
- Mrs. Roberts was given a white Lexus SUV and a red Mercedes convertible by ministry donors.
- University and ministry employees are regularly summoned to the Roberts' home to do the daughters' homework.
- The university and ministry maintain a stable of horses for exclusive use by the Roberts' children.
- The Roberts' home has been remodeled 11 times in the past 14 years.

Tsk. Tsk. Oral Roberts claimed that Jesus spoke to him and told him to build the university. Richard Roberts now claims to receive messages from Jesus.

As Max Von Sydow said in Woody Allen's "Hannah and her Sisters,"....
"If Jesus came back and saw what's going on in His name, He'd never stop throwing up."

Of Cowards and Betrayers....

The current Democrats in Congress are dishonorable. They are worse than Republicans. Republicans may pretend to be a lot of things (straight) but for all of their venal weaknesses and illegalities, they're not very good at hiding their motives. The Democrats, on the other hand, portray themselves as the shining knights of protection but confronted with true danger, they fold up like a damaged accordion.

I you ask me, it's a far bigger betrayal when the good guy turns out to be a coward than when the bad guy turns out to be a bad guy.

Don't Mess with Brown Texans.

Michael Chertoff, a particularly scary-looking individual, opened his big mouth and said that the borders are dirty because, basically, Mexicans are dirty.
"Illegal migrants really degrade the environment. I've seen pictures of human waste, garbage, discarded bottles and other human artifact in pristine areas," Chertoff said in a telephone interview. "And believe me, that is the worst thing you can do to the environment."

What does he think these people are doing out in the deserts? Having a picnic? They're risking their lives, pendejo! Sorry they didn't have time to properly dispose of the plastic bottle that held their last drop of water before they died of thirst out in the middle of nowhere!

Well, some border town Mayors in Texas, which are predominantly Mexican-American, are paying him back.

I'm not saying it's related but it should be.

You're bothering me, I say, you're bothering me boy....

Rush Limbaugh, after calling the troops who protest the war, "phony soldiers,", is now denying he ever said it. (That's what bullys do, once caught, they deny, deny, deny. "I didn't do it.") He says,

"He has prepared a letter to be sent to the CEO of the company that syndicates this program, and that letter he asked as many senators as possible to sign, offering them the opportunity to demand of my syndicator that I be condemned for something that I did not say, which Harry Reid knows I did not say."

In a blustering, bombastic bravado tone, rivaling only that of the legendary Foghorn Leghorn, he protested.....

"It is unconscionable for an esteemed United States senator to launch an all-out assault on a private citizen, which is a lie from front to back, in order to cover your own actions and words, which have been the true demoralization of the US military -- and if anybody owes the military of this country an apology, Senator Reid, it is you. It is Jack Murtha. It is Dick Durbin. It is any and all who have joined your effort to secure defeat of the United States and the United States military in not only Iraq, but the war on terror. Sir, have you no decency left? Have you no shame whatsoever?"

Then he said "hurumph" and scurried off in his high heels. At least Foghorn was funny. And not real.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

All I'm saying is, this neo-con Republican party, which is running the country into the ground, seems to be made up of a lot of people who are so full of hate and self-loathing that they dump it on others in an attempt to somehow "redeem" themselves. I think the picture of Ms. Cagan speaks for itself.

Today is a bad, disheartening and hopeless day....

Okay, so on this 26th day of the month of September, 2007,

*The Democratically controlled House of Representatives joined the weenie Senate and voted to "condemn's controversial "General Betray Us" ad that ran 16 days ago." The vote? 341-79. This Democratic House won't move towards impeaching the biggest bunch of criminals to occupy the White House but they will condemn an independent group for exercising their right to free speech. WTF?

*The Senate passed, by a large margin, 76-22, the Lieberman-Kyl's Iran amendment which basically says, "Iran bad and our next target." Geez! Even Jim Webb didn't vote for it! Hilary did, though, Republican that she is.

*The Democrats agreed to spend even more money on the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. $190 Billion more. They could have said, "no more." but that takes a real desire to end the madness. Obviously, they are complicit in the plan to destroy the country.

*Senator Larry Craig, he of the "wide stance, " somehow managed to hang on to his Senate seat for another day. He may actually be able to withdraw his guilty plea. That cruising in the men's room? Never happened.

*Katie Couric spoke at the National Press Club last night. She spoke out AGAINST the war. She was acting all tough and stuff, you know, pretending to be a real journalist. She said she would, "feel totally comfortable saying any of that at some point, if required, on television." Another WTF! Oh, so she can't say that now, cause it's not "required" of her to speak the truth, but if her bosses came to her and said, "Katie, it's okay. Tell the American people the truth about this war." Then she would gladly tell us? WTF!WTF!WTF! I thought it was a journalist's job to report the truth! Obviously, she's the kind of reporter who tells the truth ONLY when her bosses require it of her!
Blogger Kagro X at THE DAILY KOS, has an excellent diary on this topic.

So today was a bad day. The Democrats broke my heart today. They broke my faith. Hopefully, I will feel differently tomorrow so I can go out there and kick some Democratic butts.

I'm beside myself with glee!

One of my favorite Republican morons is under investigation. Rachel Paulose, she of the elaborate swearing in ceremony wherein she had not only a color guard and a professional photographer but a choir singing presumably to God in gratitude for her existence, (watch the video!)is under investigation for possible mishandling of classified information. Apparently she kept secret files out in the open in her office and threatened to fire a fellow attorney who pointed out to her that maybe that wasn't such a good idea. They're also investigating mistreatment towards her employees and the usage of racist terms against an African American worker. (The woman herself is Indian-American.)
She's just another example of the self-hating Republican. Be they ashamed of their sexuality (Larry Craig) or ashamed of the color of their skin (Alberto Gonzalez, Condi, Ms Paulose) they hide behind their American flag lapel pins and shouts of "hallelujah Lord!" hoping that somehow they can repress whatever it is about themselves that they hate. They treat others as beneath them as seat themselves atop flimsy pedestals. What a bunch of "maroons", as Bugs Bunny would say.

My week in front of the TV

Let's see....
MONDAY: I watched HGTVs HOUSE HUNTERS and DESIGNED TO SELL. I watch these shows everyday when I get home from work. Why? I don't know. I guess it's something about having choices and taking action but I'll leave that to my shrink to figure out. Then I watched the season finale of THE CLOSER. Pretty good show. Pretty good finale. No cliff hangers, which was unusual. I tried to watch the Holly Hunter show that comes on afterwards, SAVING GRACE, but I just cannot get into it. I love Holly Hunter but I just don't like Grace. What makes her so special that God sends her an angel? What about me! If I develop a drinking and sleeping with married men problem will God send an angel to help me, too?
The last straw with this show, was a scene I caught a couple of weeks ago. This actor, don't know his name but you'd recognize him if you saw him, in face he's in HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2 as the manager of the resort. (I didn't watch the whole thing;it's unbearable. I only watched enough to acquaint myself with a popular culture phenomenon, but I saw this actor in it.) Anyway, this actor is playing some friend of Grace's who's has to put his beloved cat to sleep. He shows up at Grace's drunk and depressed about his cat. Grace wants to comfort him but the only way she knows how is to strip naked, straddle and seduce him on her living room floor. It was an uncomfortable scene to watch, especially since this guy always plays the nerdy dad or neighbor and I'd just seen him in HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2, for God's sake! And now I see his paunchy white gut naked, while he rolls around on the floor with an equally naked Holly Hunter? No thanks.

TUESDAY:I watched SCI FI's, EUREKA. It was pretty good last season, but this season has been uneven. They're trying to develop a continuing storyline but it's been very unsatisfying. Last season's finale suggested things that would happen in the future but this season seems to be ignoring all of those events. And where is Matt Frewer? He was a big part of last season and he's only been in one episode this season and then he disappeared. Weren't he and Jo supposed to continue their tentative romance? Instead they've paired Jo with a generic good looking actor who's BORING and a bad actor. And where's Deborah Farentino? She's the evil spy but she's disappeared too, though she turns up in flashbacks. She's part of the this "developing storyline" yet she's gone. What? They couldn't afford her? She didn't like Canada? STOOPID and yet I watch.

WEDNESDAY: Speaking of stoopid, Wednesday is more SCI FI Channel and GHOSTHUNTERS. The most aggravating show on TV. They never find anything! Well, I take that back, on a couple of shows, they've found "something," but mainly it's nothing but a lot of "did you hear that?" and "did you see that?" and "Dude, I swear, I saw a shadow, or something, overthere." There are usually some EVP's, paranormal voice recordings. These can be creepy sounding but it always bugs me because what I hear as breaths and grunts they always turn into ominous words. "I think it's saying, "Get out!" And they say this to the homeowner or whoever has asked them to come investigate their spooky sounds! Don't tell a person who thinks their house is haunted that you recorded a creepy voice telling them to 'GET OUT!' Nuts!
The lead investigators are Grant and Jason, the good cop, bad cop of the ectoplasmic world. I don't like Jason. He never smiles and is a hard ass and he's always the one who "interprets" what he thinks the EVP is saying. What is he, a sadist? Grant always goes along with whatever Jason says. The two of them always hint at why they became interested in the paranormal. They've both had "significant" encounters but they don't tell us what they are. Why not? Did the ghost tell you not to? After watching reruns of GHOSTHUNTERS, I realized I'd forgotten to watch RESCUE ME. Luckily, FX repeats it a lot, so I'll catch it later.

THURSDAY: I flipped through channels and didn't find anything interesting to watch.

FRIDAY:Usually, I watch TLC's, WHAT NOT TO WEAR, but it was a rerun, so I watched VH1's, ROCK OF LOVE. I hate this show but I can't look away. Bret Michaels constantly wears a kerchief around his head cause it's his "signature look." But I think it's cause of, "thinning hair."
In this episode, Bret Michaels narrows the list of ladies, or "ladies" down to three. They go to Vegas and two of them get fall down drunk, then Bret spends two different nights with two different girls. I don't get it? Did he have sex with them? Is that in the contract they sign to be on the show? STOOPID but highly entertaining. Next week we meet the parents of the girls and the previews looked "white trashy" good!

Global Warming? I'll get to that later.

You'd think that comparing the growing problem of global warming to a nuclear war would have everyone running out to buy fluorescent lightbulbs and trading their cars in for hybrids, but no, it's just another story that people see and say, "oh my." and then return to their lives. Why are we not worried? See this sentence from the story:

"Overall, it said 65 countries were likely to lose over 15 percent of their agricultural output by 2100 at a time when the world's population was expected to head from six billion now to nine billion people."


All of us reading this story are going to be dead by 2100. The year 2100 is too far into the future for us to worry about. That's how people are, we procrastinate. Don't tell us it's not going to effect us until 2100, tell us about how it's effecting us now! That's the only way you're going to get our attention! Remember, a great number of people on this planet can barely see through to next month much less the year 2100. Break it down into bite size pieces. 2007-2010-2015...

Since when do Facts Matter?

Following the M.O. of the Republican party, Thompson is shouting out untruths hoping no one will notice. Unfortunately, it works every time. Regardless of the physical proof provided by video, audio and print, the facts remain hidden by the loud assertions of dishonest cretins. Down the memory hole it goes.

Where's that Karmic reward when you need it?

After making a fool of himself to an international audience (again), Bush took off from the podium, in the wrong direction. (again. Remember China?)

"Then, speech done, Bush confidently headed out—the wrong way. He strode away from the lectern on a path that would have sent him over a steep drop. Howard and others redirected the president to center stage, where there were steps leading down to the floor of the theater."

A "steep drop" indeed.

Big Bloated Blowhards

I have had it with Fred Thompson! I've had it with all of the ass kissing Republicans and their propanganda that seeks to destroy this country! They don't like dissent because it threatens them! They don't like people to have their freedom because it threatens them!
In this article, Freddie, as he was known before his father-in-law at the time told him he had to change his name if he wanted to go into politics, this was the father of his high school girlfriend whom he got pregnant and married when he was seventeen....anyway, in this article, Freddie, "repeatedly warned against the perils of a "weak and divided" nation, raised the specter of unspecified terrorists with suitcase bombs, and expressed a willingness to employ nuclear weapons against Iran."
Same old M.O. Scare the sheep and they will do anything you tell them to and damn them if it doesn't work. When did we become this nation of wussies?

Republican Karma?

Republicans seem to be experiencing mercury in retrograde.

Bush Diddles while the World burns...

This report from the Associated press has got me riled up. Apparently, it's perfectly acceptable in this year of 2007 for the President of the United States to refer to his female Secretary of State as his "date."

"She can be my date," the president said, reaching out his left hand to touch Rice's arm as they stood before the cameras at a dinner hosted by Prime Minister John Howard and his wife Janette at their residence, Kirribilli House .


More from the same story.......

"First lady Laura Bush had stayed back in Washington, saying a pinched nerve prevented her from taking long flights."


"Bush rode across Sydney Habor in a luxury cruiser flanked by police boats and police on jet skis. Photographers called it a boater-cade. Helicopters watched from overhead as a spitting rain fell from a darkening sky."


"Arriving at Kirribilli House, Bush found Howard waiting expectantly in the doorway. Fruit bats swooped overhead. Bush came well prepared. He told the prime minister and his wife that he was eager to see pictures of their new grandchild."


"Parts of Sydney resemble a besieged camp, with police erecting a 10-feet-tall security fence, dubbed by local media the Great Wall of APEC near the summit site....When a reporter started to ask him about security, Bush interrupted him.
"I hope you feel safe," the president said.
"I feel ...," the reporter started.
"You feel inconvenienced, obviously," Bush said.
"But to the extent I've caused this, I apologize," he continued. "Look, I don't want to come to a community and say, you know, what a pain it is to have the American president. Unfortunately, however, this is what the authorities thought was necessary to protect people."


"The reporter was finally able to get in another word.
"Well, I wasn't going to blame you personally, sir," the reporter said. "But anyway --"
Bush interrupted again. "I guess I must be feeling guilty, you know what I'm saying?"


"Bush did not let security issues or diplomacy get in the way of his exercise.
After lunch, Bush headed back to his hotel to change into biking gear."

President Gore

Found this story on Daily Kos. Yes, this is the man we elected President and in a perfect world, he would be our President.

Me thinks they doth protest too much...

Why was Tucker SO upset by the proposition in the bathroom? So upset he went back with help and beat up the guy who'd bothered him. Could he have been trying to beat down some inclination in himself? Perhaps a tendency to prefer bow ties, not that there's anything wrong with that.

Beware the sign of the beast!

Always look askance at those who wear an American flag in their lapel. They are most certainly hiding something.
Hey Larry, you're not being singled out because you're gay. And it's not because you have a tendency to pick up men in bathrooms for anonymous sex. It's not even because you're a Republican. It's because you're a liar and a hypocrite and a self-hating person. I don't care what your preference is but for God's sake, be honest about it. Don't pontificate against and persecute those that are like you and stop hiding behind the flag!

The Man who Should be President

Today's USA Today reports John Edwards saying, "We cannot replace a group of corporate Republicans with a group of corporate Democrats, just swapping the Washington insiders of one party for the Washington insiders of the other,"
Hallelujah! The truth has been spoken! That is why I don't endorse Hillary or Obama for Prez. They are too beholden to those that "brung them to the party."

Hmmm. Whatever could be wrong?

So Mark "thank heaven for little boys" Foley, won't turn over his computers so that law enforcement can see exactly what he was talking about with those pages. Gee, I wonder why?

Uh, we're going to "reschedule."

Aww! None of the Democratic candidates wanted to show up to the debate FOX and the Congressional Black Caucus were having so FOX has decided to "reschedule."
Ha! "Reschedule!" That's funny! Sort of like "rescheduling" a birthday party because everyone you invited decided they didn't want to go! Boo Hoo! Gotta love the way FOX knows how to manipulate the language. Goebbels is so proud of his pupils!

Condi au naturel?

Forbes Magazine lists Condi Rice as bachelorette #6. Aside from the ridiculousness of that thought, what wrong with this picture of Condi? What is she covered in, snake skin? Was the picture taken before she could employ her mind control shape shifter power?

Oooh, you make me so mad!

Ooh, Mr. Bush-boy, I'm gonna pinch you! You make me so mad! Oooh!

No wonder Cheney told Leahy to go @#%& himself. No guts, no glory.

Run for the Hills!

There are days when I just want to give up. Give up on everything. Today is one of those days. Everything is making me sad. Christian conservative are rewriting our American History and we are sitting back, powerless to stop it.
Over in Russia, Putin is busy re-writing his Country's history.
And forget finding any truth at Wikipedia! The history there is constantly being rewritten.
Sigh! Most days I fear for my country, for my world, other days, I reason that all will be well; right will persevere.
Today, I don't feel like that. I feel like a town cryer, moving through the cobble stone streets of his town, tolling his bell and yelling, "bring out your dead!"

Why I can’t scratch my ass and binge on potato chips anymore

Yet another infringement of my civil rights that will be ignored by the media and the powers that be. Great, now I have to worry that a satellite is broadcasting me everytime I sit my fat ass in front of the TV and get ready to stuff my face with Lay's Limon potato chips! Hey, Michael Chertoff, enjoy the show!

Turd Blossom Speaks in Turds

From THINK PROGRESS comes this excellent quote from Karl "Turd Blossom" Rove.
Rove claims that those that criticize Bush are "sort of elite, effete snobs who can't hold a candle to this guy. What they don't like about him is that he is common sense, that he is Middle America."
"Middle America?" Really? Wow! I had no idea Middle America grew up the son of a privileged son in a privileged family. I've posted some pictures of our "Middle American" president. (yes, I know president is supposed to be capitalized but he doesn't warrant the courtesy.)

Chris Matthews thinks it's 1974

I'm old enough to remember the old Sears Catalogs and lately I've noticed a resemblance between some of the models and uber pin-head pundit, Chris Matthews. The resemblance goes beyond the physical when taken in conjunction with Matthew's latest remark; a throwback to what I'm sure he remembers as, "the good old 70's," when chauvinistic remarks were exchanged with ease and men patted "broad's" behinds with aplomb.

Bush's Washington Post OP_ED First Draft

I am the decider! What I say goes! You can all kiss my ass!
Can I go now?
