A few words re: political ads.

Let nobody say our local TV stations aren't conservative.

I see Souder's lie-filled "ZOMGZ TEH DEATH TAX!!1" ad nearly every commercial break. Hayhurst's ads? Maybe once an hour.

Liberal media my fat white ass.

Get out that crystal ball.

So it's about a week before the election.

Any predictions?

I'm seeing a Democratic victory once again squashed by mysterious vote tampering that nobody will investigate. We'll win, they'll say we lose, and nothing will come of it because everyone who protests will be marginalized.

But that's just me.


Voting Machine Code Delivered Anonymously to Voting Machine Critic

From CBS News: New Questions Over Electronic Voting;
Mailing Of Disks Containing Maryland's Voting Machine Software Raises Concerns Over Security

Disks containing what appears to be software code used in Maryland's touch-screen voting machines for the 2004 election were delivered anonymously to a former state legislator, prompting election officials to contact the FBI and raising new concerns about the reliability of the voting system.

The disks were delivered with an unsigned note to former Democratic Delegate Cheryl Kagan, an outspoken critic of the paperless electronic voting machines. The note said the disks had been "accidentally picked up" in the state election board offices.

So lemme get this straight. Someone "finds" the disks with the code for Delacroy'sDiebold's voting machines and sends them to someone who has the good sense to be against having unsecured code tallying the votes.

This isn't a matter of "you misplaced these and I'm returning them", this is a matter of "you're fucking right these things are unsecured". Hell, a monkey can crack the damn things.

I'm hoping that I don't have to vote using these pieces of crap.

The War of the Words

The War of the Words: The Story of the 101st Fighting Keyboarders.

Anything that makes fun of loser chickenhawks is fine with me. Plus it's a Ken Burns parody, so it's hilarious on an intelligent level.


I am literally crying right now, I really am.


America is dead. Long live the Fascist States of Bush.

Olbermann, as usual, gets it right. Hell, he'd make me laugh if I was in ANY kind of laughing mood right now. The right-wing media continues to cover other things, and we'll never hear a thing about this outside of the few voices that dare to speak up.

Speak up. NOW. Before we lose everything.


Wondering About: October Surprise

What're the Grand Old Pedophile-Protectors gonna pull out of their collective ass this year? My guess is they'll come out with another Osama tape at the end of the month.

Interesting thought from other folks: Maybe North Korea was it - they knew this was gonna happen and they let it happen to try and boost their numbers.

I'm not so sure about that, but you never know.

What I haven't been saying.

I could have gone on long diatribes this past week or two about Foley and North Korea and the elections and the fact that the GOP is desperate to regain the position they never earned.

But I haven't. You wanna know why? Because everyone says it better than I can.


"You again? I've had enough of you!"

From WaPo: Ga. Mother Seeks Harry Potter Ban
ATLANTA -- A suburban county that sparked a public outcry when its libraries temporarily eliminated funding for Spanish-language fiction is now being asked to ban Harry Potter books from its schools.

Laura Mallory, a mother of four, told a hearing officer for the Gwinnett County Board of Education on Tuesday that the popular fiction books are an "evil" attempt to indoctrinate children in the Wicca religion.
Yes, it's this same dumb bitch.

I cannot believe the kind of bullshit this whore of a false god spews when she opens her filthy wordhole. How much you wanna bet she's never even cracked a book that didn't have a picture of a hatemongering Republican or Jesus on it? I've got some bucks in the bank I can put at stake; what about you?

Seriously, this is what happens when stupid people get a voice: They lie, they say stupid things, they speak out against that which they don't comprehend. If she knew what she were talking about, maybe she wouldn't come off so stupid; sadly, she's repeating the lies of the Bible-thumping hatemongers who have the ear of the NASCAR-watching, Wal-Mart patronizing pseudo-masses. Makes me wanna puke.

I suggest everyone, especially this idiotic bint, read a link left in my first entry about this: J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter by Dr. Jerram Barrs


Faux News: "Anyone bad must be a Democrat even if they're not"

From Crooks and Liars: Bill O’Reilly labels Rep. Foley a Democrat
I can understand if FOX and The Factor made an error the first time, but to post it repeatedly should be a firing offense, The most watched show on FOX News has now labeled the former Republican Congressman Mark Foley, who is in the middle of a sexual predator scandal that has Hastert's career on the ropes —a Democrat. Was it an error or done by choice? I report–you decide.
Truth is, it's no error. Those graphics are kept stored for whenever they need them, and this show was taped and left with the mistake still in.

Remember how the wingnuts got all up in arms when CNN accidentally overlaid an X on video of Cheney? Remember them saying it was an evil subliminal message showing their bias? I wonder when the deafening silence from their quarter on this matter will hit?

Write your editor and point this out - don't let Faux News get away with yet another lie.


A random thought.

It's just a thought, but will this be the case come the election?

I'm just wondering, is all.
