Bush and Cheney to Switch Jobs

January 29, 2007

Difficult to believe? Well, it’s true!

“Why keep up this pretense any longer?” asked the former Veep, Mr. Cheney. “In time of war, a convoy can only go as fast as it’s slowest ship. I think George is a really swell guy, but we need to stop dragging our heels, get a move on, and get control of the situation.”

Which situation the new President was referring to wasn’t made clear.

This historic switcheroo is sure to provoke a constitutional crisis. However, pundits claim this isn’t entirely unprecedented.

“President Reagan effectively did the same thing, only he never relinquished the title,” said William Kristol of the Project for New American Century, a think tank and influential lobby based in Washington D.C.

Mr. Kristol continued, “What Mr Cheney has decided to do is in the best interest of the American public and the Iraqi people in this time of war, and will be looked back as an important, if not historic, development in government by the people, for the people.”

Mr. Bush has been in seclusion at his ranch in Crawford, Texas.

The former president has so far remained silent, and has chosen, according to aides, not to comment in detail on the role reversal at this time.

“The new Vice President would like the American public to know, that this development is in their best interests, and they should not fear for their country at this time,” has been his only official response.

Smells Like Hate Speech

January 25, 2007

Spocko’s Brain is having an impact on some greasy turd-mongers (Disney!) and their bullying ways.

Capturing audio bytes from some of KSFO’s “finest” (haaaaauck!) and making advertisers aware they’re supporting something akin to hate speech, we-ell, that really gets these ambulatory shit sticks riled up.

Examples of commentary that riles the bloggers:

•In November, morning co-host Melanie Morgan said of then-incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a San Francisco Democrat: “We’ve got a bull’s-eye painted on her big, wide, laughing eyes.”

•Evening host Brian Sussman in December referred to Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., who has a Kenyan father and a white American mother, as a “halfrican.” In October 2005, Sussman asked a caller to prove he wasn’t a Muslim by saying “Allah is a whore.”

•In October, host Lee Rodgers warned “enemy” Muslim nations: “You keep screwing around with stuff like this, we’re going to kill a bunch of you — millions of you.”

Tammy Bruce, Lush Rimjob, and a few other of these dimestore prohpets of the airwaves polluting my town (LA) deserve the same kind of reatment.

Nothing makes things shiny and clear like spreading a little daylight.

Fuck You F.C.C.

January 24, 2007

Broadband coverage in this country is well known to be woefully inadequate. Some might say: a joke!

It is well-known competition is stifled, perhaps by the (alleged) collusion between the telcos and cabecos to not dig in each others back yard.

Meanwhile, western Europe kicks the USA’s ass (again).

The Center for Public Integrity want to study and find out how competitive the American market is (not very) and perhaps recommend what improvements are needed to benefit, like, you know, the consumers.

Yet the public agency respnsible doesn’t want to cooperate. I mean, fer chrissakes, it’s a PUBLIC agency-Hello!our data- and the best the FCC can do is refuse and then have the gonads to pimp out some specious argument about revealing competitors information to each other. Absurd.

What’s wrong, FCC, afraid of a little scrutiny? You serve us, the American public, not the multi-national corporations.

One might think your data is cooked and you simply don’t want to be caught with yer pants down.

Might it embarrass your corporate overlords, who are behind this act of stubborn pig-headedness?

So CPI are left with that one and only all-American all-purpose tool: sue!

Geez what a waste of space the F.C.C. are.

I spit in your general direction.

Watergate conspirator, Bay of Pigs disaster-planner, and JFK and spousal assassin E. Howard Hunt probably passed on the death bed confession, being the company man he was.

Why heck, some of his cronies, those that wish to see the president with imperial powers and unaccountable to the people who really govern, are still gaming away.

R.I.P Asshole. Your legacy of mucking things up continues.

This Sordid Tale Begins…

January 22, 2007

… in a car dealership in Seattle.

A mentally ill man, with no caregiver to oversee him, walks into a dealership to buy a car.

When the salesman gets wind that he has shopping bags full of cash lying around his home, well, there’s a sucker born every minute, see, and this one must be his…

Worthy of being a coworker of Jerry Lundegaard.

And don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out.

Unemployment benefits are being denied to an Iowa hotel worker who was fired for using her employer’s computer to keep a journal of her efforts to avoid work.
