10/1/08 Palin Updates!

While "sipping the haterade" Wagga sent me this:

Alaskan Perspective:
* Troopergate
* Alaskan hunters oppose Palin’s hunting policies: Alaskan sport hunters oppose aerial hunting of bears and wolves, something Palin vehemently supports. The last ballot measure to limit aerial hunting was actually brought forth by a group of hunters! Sport hunters also oppose the shooting of bears habituated to human bear viewers, something Palin also supports. I hope people can realize that Palin is not your average Alaskan hunter feeding her family with game meat. She has a pathological vendetta against wildlife that is opposed by most Alaskans and most Alaskan hunters.

Classic Palin on Charlie Rose:

Don't forget to check out the Sarah Palin Fictional Quote Generator v1!

Updates to follow.
It was so predictable that we would get to a pity-poor-helpless-Sarah phase. The press was already warming up for it on the day McCain announced her as his running mate, when NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell speculated that McCain's choice was designed to declaw scrappy Joe Biden, whose aggressive style would come off as bullying next to the sweet hockey mom from Alaska. Now, of course, we know about the hockey moms and the pit bulls; the more-powerful-than-expected Palin juggernaut forestalled the pity/victim/mean boy/poor Sarah phase.

So here it is, finally. And as unpleasant as it may be to watch the humiliation of a woman who waltzed into a spotlight too strong to withstand, I flat out refuse to be manipulated into another stage of gendered regress -- back to the pre-Pelosi, pre-Hillary days when girls couldn't stand the heat and so were shooed back to the kitchen.

Oh, BTW Palin doesn't read anything!

She's got talent though!

Monkey Gone to Heaven

When I was a kid I would get anxious, comforted or nonplussed by certain numbers. Some primes particularly scared me, i.e. 13, 23 and 43. Other than the number 3 or 36 I wasn’t all that comfortable with anything involving a 3. Now, I can’t explain how I developed these weird superstitions. Perhaps some of it was absorbed from TV or something. I felt 777 was a good number that bodes well. Lou’s 3 monkeys post combined with the Dow reminds me of a classic I’ve posted here before.

If God is 7 maybe He will save us?
Sherman McCoy (NSFW) doesn’t seem to think so.
I had a Kaluha. And I realized that I… like you, my friends… don’t need no fudge-factor first-order-approximation God no more. He is no use to us. Let us take one step towards the Übermensch and not invoke such silliness in our thoughts any more.

There was a guy
An underwater guy who controlled the sea
Got killed by ten million pounds of sludge
From New York and New Jersey

This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven

The creature in the sky
Got sucked in a hole now
There's a hole in the sky
And the ground's not cold
And if the ground's not cold
Everything is going to burn
We'll all take turns
I'll get mine, too

This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven

Rock me, Joe!

If man is 5
If man is 5
If man is 5

Then the devil is 6
Then the devil is 6
Then the devil is 6
Then the devil is 6

And if the devil is 6
Then God is 7
And God is 7
And God is 7

This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven

Failure to Communicate with Cats?

I've been somewhat busy with work these days and therefore choose to remain offline unless I have to be, but I just logged in and read an RIP Paul Newman email Wagga sent. This "failure to communicate" scene from Cool Hand Luke will always remain a classic:

Newman has done some great films, but my favorite is Cat On a Hot Tin Roof. He took some serious risks playing that role in that era and stage in his career, but he did an incredible job anyway.

What was your favorite Newman film?

UPDATE: Well, I was seeking a particular vintage Stereolab video on YouTube, but only found this:

Even dumber than Bush…? WTF is this woman trying to say?

Couric asked Palin, "Why isn't it better, Governor Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families who are struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries? Allow them to spend more, and put more money into the economy, instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?"

Palin, in a rambling and largely incoherent response, responded, "That's why I say I, like every American I'm speaking with, were ill about this position that we have been put in. Where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh, it's got to be about job creation, too. Shoring up our economy, and getting it back on the right track. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade -- we have got to see trade as opportunity, not as, uh, competitive, um, scary thing, but one in five jobs created in the trade sector today. We've got to look at that as more opportunity. All of those things under the umbrella of job creation."

I'm sorry, what? Did she even hear the question?

Palin feels mocked by her supposed Haterz:

COURIC: You've cited Alaska's proximity to Russia as part of your foreign policy experience. What did you mean by that?

PALIN: That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and on our other side, the land-- boundary that we have with-- Canada. It-- it's funny that a comment like that was-- kind of made to-- cari-- I don't know, you know? Reporters--


PALIN: Yeah, mocked, I guess that's the word, yeah.

COURIC: Explain to me why that enhances your foreign policy credentials.

PALIN: Well, it certainly does because our-- our next door neighbors are foreign countries. They're in the state that I am the executive of. And there in Russia--

COURIC: Have you ever been involved with any negotiations, for example, with the Russians?

PALIN: We have trade missions back and forth. We-- we do-- it's very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where-- where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border. It is-- from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there. They are right next to-- to our state.

With VP candidates like this, no wonder our country is going down the toilet and an international joke!

Shame on you Mr Bush by *kasovitz

Gee, I was so reassured by Bush's speech!

WALNUTS amusement with David Letterman!

Paulson, Palin, Meat, Art, Hunting, Etc.

Doesn't this look like Henry Paulson?

im all lost in the supermarket

More here: harold of cardboard
And here: Wayne Leal

Speaking of meat, guns and Sarah Palin, I suspect she may in fact be a DMGD case in drag.
Diminutive male genitalia disorder (DMGD) has, until this month, been considered only a theory in the scientific world, but now the long-suspected link between hunting and unusually small penis size has been established as scientific fact by the Diminutive Male Genitalia Disorder Research Organization (DMGDRO). The DMGDRO has conducted an extensive two-year study on men with diminutive male genitalia disorder.

Some Good News I Missed in the Gloom & Doom of it All

Wolves by ~Dragonsfire867

A federal wildlife official in Billings said the government planned to retreat for now from its attempt to take gray wolves in the Northern Rockies off the endangered species list. The official, Ed Bangs of the Fish and Wildlife Service, said the government in the next week planned to withdraw a rule issued this spring. The rule was based on the assertion that the region’s approximately 1,500 wolves were recovered fully, opening the way for public hunting of wolves to begin this fall in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. Those hunts had been in doubt since July, when Judge Donald Molloy of Federal District Court blocked them pending resolution of a lawsuit by environmentalists.
Montana: Gray Wolves May Get Government Reprieve

The only way Wall Street's meltdown doesn't spill over to Main Street is if policymakers begin to pay adequate attention to the people whose wallets really keep the economy going, and who merit more help than the Wall Street tycoons whose carelessness and negligence have put it in such jeopardy.

Spam: Horror in a Can

little piglet by ~cinemaentete

Some of these piglets convulsed for more than 12 minutes before dying.

Although pigs are even smarter than dogs and can be just as sociable, they are treated in this horrifying manner:
  • A supervisor shoved a cane into a sow's vagina, struck her on the back about 17 times, and then struck another sow.

  • Multiple pigs were beaten with metal gate rods, and lacerations were found on more than 30 sows - which is probably evidence of more abuse.

  • A worker hit a young pig in the face four times with the edge of a herding board, and investigators witnessed dozens of similar incidents involving this worker and 11 other workers.

  • Two men - including a supervisor - were witnessed jabbing clothespins into pigs' eyes and faces. A supervisor also poked two animals in the eyes with his fingers.

  • A supervisor kicked a young pig in the face, abdomen, and genitals to make her move and told PETA's investigator, "You gotta beat on the bitch. Make her cry."

  • A worker who weighed an estimated 315 lbs. punched a sow on the back three times and said that he sat on a sow's head.
Unfortunately, much of this is not uncommon. For example, piglets are regularly castrated without anesthetics. Just something to think about over your next ham sandwich.

Puppies and Unicorns!

This is Tanuki when he was such a sweet little puppy.

This is Akubi making a mess of my garden during his awkward phase. Wow, he wasn't nearly as fat/fluffy as he is now.

This is Akubi and Tanuki rolling in deer shit.

This is a family values™/ puppy/unicorn oriented blog. We disavow all association with pr0n which has clearly done more harm to this country than the Bush Admin.

We Intend To Create Atom Smashing Havoc

I've been meaning to mention this groovy blog I discovered via The Groovy Age of Horror. Nice boots!
Creating havoc sort of ties into smashing atoms and I've been pretty intrigued with the whole LHC concept (at least there's something to get my mind off of politics), but Edgar seems to believe it is the beginning of the end.
If one has to go, I can't imagine anything cooler than (the very slight possibility of) being sucked into a black hole and possibly another dimension (woohoo!) so I'm not all that concerned.

Wow, they still make this T-shirt. Mine is torn to shreds along the lines of the Nietzsche fish one from a million years ago.

Aerial wolf killing, moose eating Sarah Palin can Suck it!

Everyone was big on intention and intending back then.

Zoo Pond Algae Turns Polar Bear Green!

Not only do McCain's screens and Casey's Modesto Pool turn algae green, but polar bears too!

TOKYO, Japan (AP) -- Green-colored polar bears are drawing questions from puzzled visitors at a Japanese zoo.

The polar bears at at a zoo in central Japan turned green as a result of algae in their pool.

Three normally white polar bears at Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens in central Japan changed their color in July after swimming in a pond with an overgrowth of algae...

Does the zoo pond include koi and stuff?
Speaking of koi, Lou found an overpriced house with a sweet koi pond.

Palin's Tentacles

Umi no Yami no Jyoou by Audrey Kawasaki via Suzanne G.

Just thought I'd post some tentacle art to keep you occupied while sitting on the edge of your seat in anticipation of VPILF AKA Sarah Palin's 10PM EST speech at the RNC this evening.
