Hacking Democracy

Ye Olde Scribe’s Incredible, Inedible Quote Machine
“Don’t eat it. Read it. Cause ya can’t be too chew… see.”

“For example, in a Weekly Standard column titled ‘McCain versus the juggernaut,’ neoconservative pundit William Kristol warned that an ‘Obama-Biden administration — working with a Democratic Congress — would mean a more debilitating nanny state at home and a weaker nation facing our enemies abroad.’ It takes a deep obliviousness to reality for an ardent Bush supporter to be sounding the alarm about the ‘nanny state’ at the same time that his beloved president and party are solicitously spoon-feeding their wailing Wall Street brat out of a $700 billion jar of Gerber’s.”


“This is not a ‘movement’ that means anything that anyone can explain. As Christopher Buckley, the son of the late William F. Buckley, intellectual father of modern American conservativism, put it in a much-discussed piece in the Daily Beast announcing his support for Obama, ‘I no longer have any clear idea what, exactly, the modern conservative movement stands for. Eight years of “conservative” government has brought us a doubled national debt, ruinous expansion of entitlement programs, bridges to nowhere, poster boy Jack Abramoff and an ill-premised, ill-waged war conducted by politicians of breathtaking arrogance. As a sideshow, it brought us a truly obscene attempt at federal intervention in the Terry Schiavo case.’”

Pundits Face Pandemonium

Filed under: Guest Comment,Uncategorized — Bob Patterson @ 9:19 pm

If Senator Obama wins the Presidential election it will mean the end of political punditry as it currently is practiced.

An Obama Presidency will be viewed by conservative talk show hosts with the same horror as if a combination of Malcolm X and Che Guevara had been sworn in and given access to the commander-in-chief’s office. 

Most likely, after an Obama inauguration, folks like Rush will begin to sound like the poor fellow who came apart while he was describing the Hindenburg tragedy as it was happening.

Liberal pundits will be very reluctant to say anything the least critical of a newly installed President Obama because any negativity would make they sound like Rush-clones and so they will leave any possible criticism for the conservatives to say. 

The conservative voices will come unhinged and the liberals will assume the cheerleader role for the new administration.

What’s will crabby old misanthropes have to say?  Maybe its time to turn to things like a review of a car museum in Sydney Australia? 

If the electronic voting machines give a landslide to Senator McCain, the Bush-bashers will have to continue their mission of trying to spread truth and the conservatives will continue to admire the Emperor’s new clothes.

Stay tuned . . .

Focus on the Religio-crazies

Filed under: Commentary — Greg in cheeseland @ 7:48 pm

In September 2007, John McCain declared that “The Constitution established the United States of America as a Christian nation.”  That complete bullshit, however, was not enough for him to gain the support of prominent groups on the religious far-right.

Groups such as James Dobson’s Focus on the Family, the Family Research Council, Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum, and the Council for National Policy, the normally secretive network of right-wing preachers, political operatives, and profiteers who exploit religio-crazies all have been a major force in the Republican Party ever since they backed Ronald Reagan for president.  And they and their crusading ground troops were not yet solidly behind McCain.

Enter Sarah Palin:  (more…)

Time for a “Class Action”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Patrick Murphy @ 2:23 pm

I would like to file a class action suit against the Federal Govt. for the millions of Americans (mostly African Americans) who have had their unalienable rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” denied them since the beginning of our nation. The settlement would be the guarantee of these rights by the Federal Govt. in the form of work programs that would pay a living wage with full health and retirement benefits. The jobs would be dedicated to the rebuilding of the nations infrastructure to accommodate mass transit, renewable sources of energy and recyclable waste. Americans who have been victims of the generational cycle of poverty and are incapable of working will be paid the same for attending life management courses that are “not” conditional to a faith or religious allegiance. This in order to help them transition from self destructive tendencies that poverty encourages to a place of community contributing self sufficiency. I believe that the effort to reduce the size of Govt. by certain political parties is less an effort to reduce federal spending as is the usual ruse than to eradicate the representation of the majority of American Citizens soon to join the ranks of the below middle class as a result of the latest financial crisis. I believe that the only way to repair the current and future damage this financial black hole has created by unregulated capitalism is to reinvigorate purchasing power not just to the middle class but also to the millions of Americans below the line of poverty. I’m convinced that focusing on the millions of Americans having been and are continuing to be denied rights that are spelled out in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution and easily understood by all is the way to raise awareness and thereby grassroots support for such an action. If ever there was a time to make things right by the great ideals of our country’s founding it is now when so much of capitalism’s illegal influence has proven destructive to the lives of so many Americans.   

The Tattlesnake – Obama Infomercial Seals the Deal Edition

While the Tattler doesn’t usually like the kind of wan-music-in-the-background soft emotional porn of the ‘Oprah-ized’ infomercial, Obama’s half-hour spot Wednesday night avoided most of the worst aggravations of this TV cliché, especially the forlorn solo piano music sound track with flourishes of swelling strings redolent of tacky video matchmaking and cancer treatment center ads.

It featured battleground-state stereotypes – a laid-off white male Ford Motors worker, a Latina woman trying to make ends meet, an elderly black couple hampered by chronic illness and worried about the future, et al — struggling with life in Bush’s downsized economy, but at least the people were real and their stories didn’t sink into cheesy Lifetime-channel melodrama; Obama’s interspersions in office surroundings reminiscent of Camp David were obviously intended to make the Low-and-Slow-Information-Voters of Middle America, awaiting the ballgame, feel comfortable with him as president, which was the main point of this smart $4 million investment.

Of lopsided robots and beauty queens

Filed under: Opinion — David W Scott Jr @ 2:33 pm

O.K I’m going to come right out and say it and don’t tell me that all of you out there haven’t been thinking about it too. What the hell is wrong with John McCains face. It looks like a swollen softball. I suppose this is a cruel question, but you have to ask yourself do we want a president that looks like a one cheeked chipmunk and don’t say that looks don’t count. Look who he chose for his vice president a former beauty queen with a brain the size of a pea, if brains were gas she wouldn’t have enough to power a piss ants’ go cart around the inside of a cherrio as the saying goes. I can’t for the life of me understand how anyone would vote for such a woman except for the fact that she’s beautiful. But getting back to John McCain and his misshapen head, just imagine if he was the president, his looks are off putting. I can see him meeting foreign heads of state and the advisers saying “don’t say anything about his face, don’t say anything about his face”

The Race Card

Filed under: Uncategorized — Greg in cheeseland @ 7:26 am

Ha! This is funny…


Wanna know why? Because of this:

But this may make you think differently:,0,977683.story

And it gets dead serious when this shit starts happening:

This is my first post on the bartblog, so bear with me.  I would like to comment on the dangers of playing the race card in a national political campaign.  It’s not part of a hand that belongs in the political game.  People die because of this shit.  I would also like to make a point about how complicit the US media is in this crazy sort of propaganda that would make Joseph Goebbels proud.

Considering the three stories linked above, how many of you have heard of Brandon McClelland’s brutal murder in TX?  His killer only did three years in prison for shooting someone in the head three times…partly because he also made up a story about black men trying to mug him.  The whore media made sure we heard about the McCain campaign worker from TX…until it was confirmed by the Pittsburgh cops that she is a lying sack of shit like most Republicans – then we hear nothing.  We heard about the skinheads in TN for a fleeting moment too, but where’s that now?  What if they were two 6’4” Negros plotting to assassinate McCain?  Does this trigger anyone’s bullshit meter?

I’d appreciate any and all comments on the blog.  All I ask is that you read the articles before you comment.

After all, being a celeb on TV pays a lot more that a gal can steal as a redneck guv.
