The State of American Politics Today in Nine Words

“Burn a Koran” pastor tells Petraeus to fuck off.


Kieran Chetry looked like she kinda wanted to set that Jones pig on fire through the satellite feed. Sometimes the stupid actually makes you drop a mask.

meet,Terry Jones, the new face of the western world to the Islamic one.

BREAKING: Mayor Daley not running for re-election.

Terry Jones is what America is all about!

This proves conclusively that The Troops are Islamofascist sympathizers, traitors and sleeper agents who hate AmeriKKKa. And who hasn’t wanted to tell General Betray-us to fuck off?

I thought they loved the troops.

Fundies are pretty fickle aren’t they?

@homofascist: Now’s the perfect time for a Homofascist Army coup d’état, Generalissimo!

Have all the Mad Men fans now watched Sunday’s episode? I want to discuss it!

@SanFranLefty: A video involving a goat? What else could it be?

@Dodgerblue: It’s one way for Obama to get rid of Rahm.

ADD: Maybe Blago should run for Mayor.

I have, but I was in as bad shape as Don was when I saw it.

@Mistress Cynica: Yeah. One of the best episodes, if not the best episode, of that show. I was exhausted by the end.

@SanFranLefty: best episode of at least the past two seasons.

@SanFranLefty: I was at an awesome metal show Sunday night, so I need to catch a rerun. Gotta score some more gin first. Mrs RML said it was absolutely stunning.

Dir en Grey! Dir en Grey! Whooooo!

@redmanlaw: I dragged my old tube amp out of the garage, re-tubed it, re-biased it, but it sounds like crap. I’ve got a new rectifier tube on order. If that doesn’t work, I’ll be lugging it to the local hippy amp repair guys, and waiting . . . .

@redmanlaw: Breaking hard, in a rumor kind of way: Salazar to resign, Bill Richardson to take his place at DOI. If true, it’s all good.

@SanFranLefty: Very good episode, though I wonder still if Don has really hit rock bottom yet or if his night with Peggy was but a speed bump on Self-Destruction Road, destination Hoboville.

Is it wrong that I love Ms. Blankenship, no matter how irascible and racist she may be?

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ:

The Yetta clone (from the Nanny) is now known to me as the Queen of Perversion…

When I heard that line, I had the same “ewwww” feeling when I discovered that my gramps got around with the ladies and the explanation why I had so many “distant” cousins.

In re Daley — dude’s facing a $650m budget hole, with very little left to mortgage off (the Skyway and the parking meters already being leased out, and with the money from those adventures being totally spent).

Which means either (1) massive budget cuts coming next month (which means depleted patronage army), or the ever-dreaded TACKS IN CREASE. Game over.

Early munnie is on Rahmbo vs. Jesse Jackson’s son in a TABLES LADDERS AND CHAIRS MATCH. Also possible: Luis Guttierez, con mucho sabor; Tom Tunney and his raging case of the gay; Do-gooder of the moment David Hoffman (close second to Sexi Alexi in Senate race); Do-gooder of a past moment Forrest Claypool; and scores of other hopefuls, earnest types, and scumbags. Fun will be had by all.

@Dodgerblue: One of my spies confirmed the Salazar rumor as regards the resignation. Checking with a friend of a really well placed mutual friend to see what she knows. (Don’t want to contact the WPF directly in case her Boss has people monitoring online traffic.)

@Dodgerblue: From my source via an intermediary: “She said ‘oh god, nooooo way.’ Bill is in DC meeting the VP but not the prez, she said.”

@redmanlaw: You must dig up the episode on iTunes – so good.

@other MM fans – I saw this quote today and it seemed to capture so much of Sunday’s episode:
“I am more worried by what goes on inside me: my imagination seems to have died: where there used to be pictures that were bright, at least to me, there is now nothing but the trivialities and worries of the outer life — I go round and round on the same subjects which are always those I least want to think about.” (The Collected Letters of C.S. Lewis)

@redmanlaw: Sigh. Bill would be a good pick for Interior.

@Dodgerblue: His former legal counsel Hilary Tompkins is the Interior Solicitor. She’s a Navajo woman that I worked with on a thing or two back before she hit the big time.

@redmanlaw: I’m going to DC next week to meet with a guy at Interior whom I believe you know — used to work for my outfit but based in Santa Fe.
