Dear Betsy McCaughey,

WTF is wrong with advanced directives and living wills? Srsly! How can you sit there with a straight face say that having a conversation about what you want done in the event of not being in a condition to make sound decisions, before you get to that point, is dangerous and disgusting? The words I'm thinking of are disingenuous and self-serving. The point is that you make the decisions, YOUR decisions, whether it's "by all means necessary" or "do not resuscitate". I have had one for years, and I look at it as an insurance policy that I won't be kept "alive" like Terri Schiavo.

Dear Jon Stewart,

I LOVE YOU! (Also, I don't buy your "I'm just a comedian" BS. I would say that that is also disingenuous.)

Love forever,

Watch tonight's Daily Show online. They didn't edit at all and ran out of time and posted the whole interview on their site.

I love Rachel Maddow and I want to have her babies.

Once again, technology meets Republican politician and hilarity (by which I mean the exposing of another racist GOP politician) ensues.

SRSLY, these people need to stop using computers.
erbie: (dear_repub)
Can I just say how much I love all the GOP racists getting caught because they don't know how to use technology well enough only to send their racist crap to their like-minded racist friends? Every day lately there's been a new story about some racist GOP operative or activist (wtf is an operative, anyway?) "hitting the wrong button" or not realizing that Twitter goes out to everyone. (I can't find other links, but there've been a few more recently) I'm looking forward to the next election when this stuff is all over the opponents' ads.

Cheney says Obama should keep terror policies.

"It would be a tragedy if they threw over those policies simply because they had campaigned against them," he said. Because, you know, the people who voted for him because of his stance on those policies and elected him to bring back America's squandered honor shouldn't be listened to.


You know what YOU should do? You should STFU. You guys are done. You don't get to tell Obama how to run things. You can bite my shiny metal ass.

No love,
One of those un-American terrorist-loving liberals

So CNN has a fact-check on the latest coming out of both campaigns. I'm sure you'll all be shocked to learn that just about everything McCain and Palin have said about Obama is either downright false, or at best misleading, while almost everything Obama has said about McCain is either true or mostly true.

Today is the last day in 21 states to register to vote in the upcoming Presidential election. If you're not registered yet, go do it right now! This page has the deadlines for all fifty states and DC.

Also, many voter roles have been purged. Even if you think you're registered, it's a good idea to check, especially if you're in a battleground state. (CO, FL, IN, MO, NV, NH, NM, NC, OH, PA, VA) The election is going to be decided in these 10 states, so voting in these states is extremely important!

Project Vote has lists of names that have been purged in Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas. If you live in one of those states, go check if you've been purged.

The deadlines to register in the battlegrounds states are as follows:
Colorado:October 6, TODAY!
Florida:October 6 TODAY!
Indiana:October 6 TODAY!
Missouri:October 8 WEDNESDAY
Nevada:October 4 (by mail), October 14 (in person)
New Hampshire:October 25
New Mexico:October 7 TOMORROW!
North Carolina:October 10 THIS FRIDAY
Ohio:October 6 TODAY!
Pennsylvania:October 6TODAY!
Virginia:October 6 TODAY!

Don't get left out!

Heh. Letterman's still pissed.

I think "distortion" isn't the right word here. What's the word for when someone says something they know to be untrue? Oh yeah, LYING. McCain and Palin are lying liars who tell lies and then lie about it.

So shouldn't they be choosing running mates soon? Isn't it usually in August that they're announced?

Who's your pick for running mate?

You've probably already seen it, but it's so funny!

May I just say how proud I am to be a native Californian today? Ask me again after the fall election, but today is a good day!

And may I just express again my bewilderment that people think it's any of their business who someone else marries? I wake up today with men marrying men and women marrying women, and I find my own marriage to be well intact, shockingly, I know. Once again, I fail to understand how someone else's marriage could possibly have any effect, positive or negative, on mine.

So yay California! It's about time you lived up to your rep as the bluest of the blue states! I look forward to the day when my children are grown and they look back and wonder what all the fuss was about, and are shocked that there was a time when gays and lesbians weren't allowed to marry, just as the thought of their parents not being able to marry had we been 50 years older is now ridiculous and shocking.

Also, I need new election 2008 iconses.

Limbaugh blames the victim.

So what I'd like to know is *so what* if a FIFTEEN YEAR OLD child was egging on a 50 year old man? Somehow he was powerless to stop himself from typing out sexually explicit IMs to the kid? EVEN IF IT'S TRUE, which I don't believe, I don't care if the kid was standing naked in front of him and begging for it, he was still a CHILD. Exactly what makes Limbaugh think that makes it okay?

JUST ONCE, I'd like the Republicans to step up and accept responsibility for their fuck-ups. Is it really so hard to say "Oh shit, we should've kicked him out long ago"? All this blame the victim and blame the dems is just making them look worse. If they stepped up and took responsibility, I bet it wouldn't hurt them as badly in the election as all this bullshit.

Limbaugh also revealed the name of the kid. So did Drudge. How do they look themselves in the mirror?

So, friends list, what do you know about the Party of Democratic Reform in Thailand, which is apparently attempting a coup? I admit, I am woefully ignorant of many world governments. What sort of people are the current Thai govt, and why are the Party of Democratic Reform trying to take over and what do they stand for?

(And why did they pick TLAP Day?)

Wow. Keith Olbermann sums up what a lot of us have been feeling for some time now. Watch the clip if you can. If not, read the transcript.

The current CNN poll is:

Who would win a debate on world issues between President Bush and Iranian President Ahmadinejad?

I find it inordinately amusing that with over 84 thousand votes, the results stand at 38% for Bush and 62% for Ahmadinejad.

Bite me, you patronizing asshole. I'm not confused or lacking in courage. You're just WRONG. I have no "moral or intellectual confusion" regarding what threatens our nation's security. It's YOU and your boss and your ilk. Remember when they had a moment of silence for us in Tehran? Remember when the President of *France* said "we are all Americans today"?

Here's my favorite part:
He [Rumsfeld] said, for example, that more media attention was given to U.S. soldiers' abuse of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib than to the fact that Sgt. 1st Class Paul Ray Smith received the Medal of Honor.

You mean violating the Geneva Convention, international law, US law, any sort of Christian beliefs that you claim to espouse, basic humanity and common decency takes a back seat to one guy who got a medal? I'm happy that Sgt Smith got a medal of honor, but that doesn't mitigate my extreme horror at the atrocities of Abu Ghraib.
