More Proof That Bush Is Stupid I laughed my ass off when I read this. Remember, this man carries the football with him. For you kiddies that don't know, it's a briefcase that has codes to launch nukes.
Tampa Bay Blogger Fest Alright kiddies. The event will be on September 18th at 6:30 PM at Splitsville.
Unabashed Racist Wins GOP Primary in Tenn. People foolishly say it isn't important to go vote. These people are stupid. more inside
Danger In Indiana VENICE -- Officials in Indiana and Washington, D.C., said they are dumbfounded by a statement U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris made about a terrorist plot to blow up a power grid in Indiana. That's because in an election year only a Republican running for higher office can keep America safe. "As the sheriff of this county, I would certainly be aware of such a threat," Hamilton County Sheriff Doug Carter said. "I have no information to corroborate any of that." In an interview Tuesday, Harris would not reveal the name of the mayor who told her about the threat or provide further details. I suspect that this man is the target of the terrorists.
Niger Story Really Falling Apart I was going to write a post about this, but this is better. Kevin Drum outlines in painful detail how the whole Niger uranium story is going to hell. It's hysterical. The CIA never actually looked at the documents. The CIA also didn't believe the British reports that Iraq was trying to buy uranium. But it doesn't matter since Joe Wilson is a liar. Josh Marshall is also working on a story (not for his blog) about the Niger documents. more inside
Five Eight (Quicktime video) One of the most legendary bands in the history of the Athens, Georgia music scene. These guys have been around a long time. I once saw this band at the Brass Mug in Tampa and the lead singer Mike Mantione stripped naked and read poetry. He said he wouldn't stop until he sold enough CDs and t-shirts for gas money for the band's van. That kinda stuff is normal for this band.
Bush Campaign Advice For Americans
"Why don't they get new jobs if they're unhappy -- or go on Prozac?" said Susan Sheybani, an assistant to Bush campaign spokesman Terry Holt.
Bill O'Reilly Vs Michael Moore Via Loaded Mouth. I got nothing to say about this. I am very interested in what my fellow monkeys have to say.
Atrios Went Public Atrios (real name Duncan) has had his photo posted on Talk Left and the Scripting News.
Genocide In Suden This is a linked-filled post and we monkeys like links. The Sudan crisis hasn't really been getting a lot of media attention. Blunted noted: "Bush won't even merely take place sanctions on Sudan." I wonder if it has anything to do with this.
With the completion of a major oil export pipeline in July 1999, Sudanese crude oil production and exports have risen rapidly over the past few years. Sudan's estimated oil reserves have doubled since 2001, with crude production reaching an estimated 345,000 barrels per day (bbl/d) in June 2004. Energy Minister Awad al-Jaz said in May 2004 that he expected crude production to reach 500,000 bbl/d in 2005.

Jenna and Barbara Bush Online Chat Now I agree with Atrios, Ana Marie Cox (aka Wonkette) may be pulling our leg. If not then this online chat is hysterical. It seems that the Bush girls talk like 50 year-old White House speechwriters and like to pepper their language with a Bill and Ted "excellent." more inside
Blogs Write About Reporters Writing About Blogs Now this is just getting silly. Kos points out how silly the coverage of bloggers that will be covering the Democratic Convention.
One reporter asked Jerome of MyDD what he would be covering at the convention. Jerome replied, "I'll be writing about you writing about me." It's getting to be that absurd.I hear the that (hold your hats) the television media is going to film bloggers at their laptops. Now that's riveting TV.
Talking Points: They're True Because They're Said A Lot Real media (you monkeys have been warned).
Bush: The Anti-democratic President Jonathan Chait makes a case on how Bush has hurt the democratic process of America more than any other president in modern history. On another note: the article states that Bush the first president since James Garfield not to veto a bill in his first term. Garfield died in 1881 and didn't serve a full term.
Bizarre Op-Ed of the Day Note: the date this op-ed was published is July 18, 2004. Barbara Ehrenreich tells Ralph Nader that it's over (when did it ever begin) and then writes this: more inside
Cameron Diaz Vs Fleshbot According to Wired News, Cameron Diaz's attorneys wrote a cease and desist letter to Nick Denton. Diaz's attorneys want Fleshbot (NSFW) to take down a post and link to a softcore video made during Diaz's salad days. The video features "The video features Diaz topless and in fishnets. She and a leather-clad model named Natasha are vamping it up in a bondage scene with a chained man wearing nothing but a loose-fitting loincloth. At one point, the twosome toy with their male "slave," making him wear a black leather bondage mask and pretending to subjugate him." Denton probably loves the controversy. Of course, there are the rumors that Ana Marie Cox will be in Playboy.Page 1 2 3 4 5 6 8 10 11
