Journal Journal: Realists vs Reality 5

James Baker and the whole Iraq Study Group are a confirmed collection of idiots. They want us to go off and ask Iran if they'll help us stabilize Iraq.

I think we've already gotten Iran's reply.

Journal Journal: Reflections on the election 3

Orson Scott Card lays down some pretty heavy words that are worth reflecting on.

Me, I'm going to vote and it'll be an almost straight Republican line. I'll vote for Leiberman because he's earned my respect on defense and I'm not a huge supporter of some of the social aspects of the Republican line. Yeah, Joe's a flaming liberal on everything except the war, but right now that's the big #1 thing in my book. (The image of Lamont with Sharpton behind him and people chanting "Bring them home!" was just too much.)

So, that's where I stand on this and I think Card's captured the big issue correctly.

Journal Journal: Poor squiggle 4

Not happy enough to shut down debate, he also had to go and bitch about it. Not in my JE mind you, but as a coda to a question that I posed in his journal.

The irony is his ending:

As I said, go fuck yourself. You're a liar, a troll, and I'm amazed I held out this long.

Apparently he thinks that he should be rewarded for his perseverance in the face of a challenge to his authority. (Two posts being apparently his limit for "sufferring fools".)

Journal Journal: Gee, he foe'd me. 6

Apparently when you don't toe the line for the Democratic party purity test and maybe question some people's ideas it earns you a spot on their foe list. squigleslash accused me of trolling, rebutted my post, and foe'd me so I'd be unable to respond.

A truely class act.

Further indicative of the open-minded, big tent attitude of those who are busy labelling Lieberman as a traitor because he didn't meet the latest Democratic purity test (this test being decided by less than 10% of the Democrats in Connecticut mind you).

Journal Journal: GMontag gets an Instalanche! 1

Congrats to Guy for landing a link from the Instapundit. Here

This should be intersting. If we link back enough then the Instalanche versus the SlashDot effect could make the Internet cease to exist...

Journal Journal: On the importance of perspective 1

Some food for thought in the form of a screedy bleat.

This sums up the sheer amazement I felt as certain congress critters and senators got up this week and were busy declaring Iraq an abject failure amidst all of the news that was streaming in.

Journal Journal: A b'day of infamy

I'm sorry everyone, I truely am.

* 1888 - Jack the Ripper kills his third and fourth victims, Elizabeth Stride and Catherine Eddowes.

* 1967 - BBC Radio 1 is launched; the BBC's other national radio stations also adopt numeric names. Tony Blackburn presents the first show.

(I'm not sure which is scarier.)

* 1971 - Jenna Elfman, American actress

It's scary to think she's a year YOUNGER than me.

Yes, September 30th a day of infamy, despair, and destruction. I'm not living up to my birthright.
