The Girl Next Door Documentry filmmaker Christine Fugate made the movie The Girl Next Door about porn star Stacy Valentine. The film has received strong reviews and played at the Slamdance Film Festival. You can watch a trailer for the movie. I (think) it's a real player file.
Rumsfeld Eats His Own Words On Television On Face the Nation, Sec of Defense Donald Rumsfeld claimed that the administration wasn't using the words "immediate threat." He stated those words are "folklore" created by the press. Trouble is that he used those very words in a CNN article that was quoted back to him on television.

Bushisms In all fairness to the Scrub, he is not nearly as bad as Dan Quayle. That man could sap the brain power right out of a room.

Ben Affleck In Rolling Stone Affleck says he doesn't know why their union caused such a hostile reaction. "Hopefully I can get far enough away from it in time to be able to get a better sense of it," he says, although he suspects the hostility "had something to do with race and class. That pushed a button. This is a country that flew into a gigantic uproar about Janet Jackson's breast. There's still a heavy-duty puritan influence going on, and we still hold ourselves to a pretty chaste ideal, which includes, buried within it, the tradition of people being with people like them. We were thought of as two different kinds of people, not just racially but culturally." Perhaps that's why the tabloids have gone easier on Lopez dating singer Marc Anthony. Affleck lights another of his menthol Marlboro Lights. "Basically, it just came down to, 'Wow, I never thought those two would get together.'"

Diane Richie Written Declaration Diane Richie is seeking a $400.000. a month divorse settlement from pop star Lionel Ritchie. She goes through the Ritchies family's (very expensive) expenses. It seems plastic surgery, nine staff members, laser hair removal, and $150,000. on oriental rugs adds up. If you're wondering about Lionel has been up to, check out his latest video.

Bra Tax I couldn't make this up if I tried. This is another great idea from George W. Bush. The president recently said his critics support "protectionist trade barriers." The bizarre thing is he brags about his support of free trade and then does things like this. more inside

Karen Kwiatkowski: Whistleblower Karen Kwiatkowski is a conservative and and retired career Air Force officer. She was shocked by the incompetence, lying, and public hostility from neoconservatives during her time (in the now defunct) Office of Special Plans.
Instead of developing defense policy alternatives and advice, OSP was used to manufacture propaganda for internal and external use, and pseudo war planning.

Thomas Sowell On Gay Marriage I laughed my ass off when I read this. I have read Sowell's columns for a longtime. Man, the guy has written some nutty things in the past about the civil rights era. more inside
Seattle to Recognize Marriages by Gay City Workers Breaking News. Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels on Monday ordered the city government to recognize gay marriages performed in other states, even though Washington state law clearly prohibits same-sex marriage. "Spouses of city employees in same-sex marriages will enjoy all of the health and insurance benefits that all opposite sex partners enjoy," Nickels said at a news conference. Same-sex couples with marriage licenses recently issued in cities including Portland, Oregon, and San Francisco would be eligible for full benefits with no extra paperwork required to apply.

John Allison Interview John Allison is the creator of the online comic strips Bobbins and Scary Go Round. He discusses his work (he sounds like he's not looking to get syndicated) and how he makes a living. This comment was says a lot about Allison. Sales are healthy enough to constitute a large part of my living. People like to support the comic and I really don't like the idea of donations, it's too much like begging. I try to make good products that people will want to buy, at a reasonable price. I refuse to sell anything that I wouldn't buy myself, just so people can blow their money on trinkets. My friends shake their heads at my ghastly, moralistic ways.

It Takes A Lot of Nerve To Post This Glenn Reynolds and LT Smash have a lot of nerve accusing Kristen Breitweiser and Monica Gabrielle of "politicizing" 9/11. Both women have lost their husbands at the WTC. The reason that they have not been happy with the President is because the White House has been constantly stonewalling the 9/11 Commission. Even Republican and commission chairman Tom Kean has gotten fed up with it. Reynolds and Smash feel it is just partisan politics. I wasn't aware that Breitweiser and Gabrielle worked for the DNC.

Bush's Budget Will Actually Increase Deficit Remember, how the White was saying that they were going to cut the deficit in half by 2009? The Congressional Budget Office sheds some light on those projections.
Over the 10-year period from 2005 through 2014, deficits would total $2.75 trillion under the President's policies--$737 billion higher than CBO's baseline projection of the cumulative deficit.(1) Debt held by the public would rise from 36 percent of GDP at the end of 2003 to about 40 percent during the years 2006 through 2014.
The Truth For Youth Hysterical Christian propaganda comic books. I love the rock music comic with the Marilyn Manson reject singing the evil lyrics, "Sick dreams are made of fleas, moldy breath and schoolyard cheese." I love the kid sweating during the concert like a heroin addict going cold turkey. There is also the racially offensive comic of a white boy that can't get a black kid to stop looking at internet porn.
Dick Cheney On Job Growth "If the Democratic policies had been pursued over the last two or three years, the kind of tax increases that both Kerry and Edwards have talked about, we would not have had the kind of job growth that we've had," Cheney said. more inside

John Edwards Quitting Race Now the real fun begins. Who will be Kerry's running mate? I'm thinking Clark. How dirty will the campaign be? Bush called Kerry to congratulate him. Oliver Willis has a parody of that conversation. It seems that Kerry-basher Glenn Reynolds doesn't have anything to say.
