This is the part of the week where I post links to stuff that people have sent me. Thanks people.
He not only got a press pass, he got a secret service press pass using an alias. He got scoops. Who is his boyfriend in the White House? One Good Move has quicktime excerpts from Bill Maher Show featuring Joe Biden, Robin Williams and Leslie Stahl. Hey there's nothing anyone can do about this unless the Republicans want to investigate how someone infiltrated the White House with no qualifications. Well at least this story is making headlines in alternative media. And big time.
And here's a link to Rigorous Intuition's photo essay on Bush's bald head fetish. The Smoking Scalp. oy. Julius Blog has even more graphic pix of bush rubbing some chrome. Sumbody he'p me. Bush's being a gay fetishist creeps me out almost as much as bush being a heterosexual. Where will it end? And where is the progressive version of Linda Tripp when you need one?
Even if there was a new Linda Tripp, it would mean nothing with a bush supported main stream media. Read The mole, the US media and a White House coup
Good article in Salon (and it's not that bad to get a day pass because Salon has great articles) by Sidney Blumenthal ( I read all his books) called Midnight cowboy in the garden of Bush and evil The phony journalist in the White House is the most bizarre example yet of the administration's efforts to thwart an independent press. And Joe Conason's article made me depressed when it revealed how that P.O.S. Gannon/Guckert (rhymes with Fuckert) did so much to get Tom Daschle unelected. And you know there had to be some sort of subversive thing in SD because I watched his opponent, Thune on Meet The Press and realized that Thune is dumber than shit. It still bothers me that SD has 2 Senators. My county has more people and diversity than that whole state. Anyway, while you're at Salon, read Gannon: The early years
Before he was buttering up Bush at White House press conferences, "Jeff Gannon" was doing the GOP's dirty work in attacking Tom Daschle By Joe Conason
Have you read the Secret Bush Tapes this morning? Interesting read. You decide.
God and a soldier all people adore
In time of war, but not before;
And when war is over and all things are righted,
God is neglected and an old soldier slighted:
I have seen men march to the wars, and then I have watched their homeward tread, And they brought back bodies of living men, But their eyes were cold and dead'
-Edmund Vance Cooke
When a whole nation is roaring patriotism at the top of its voice, I am fain to explore the cleanness of its hands and purity of its heart."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
"If society fits you comfortably enough, you call it freedom."
All those who seek to destroy the liberties of a democratic nation ought to know that war is the surest and shortest means to accomplish it
-Alexis de Tocqueville
