Due to Jonny’s semi-emo meltdown and subsequent infection of many posters here, I took it upon myself to drink half a bottle of Jonnie Walker black and get over said illness. I’m not sure when (or even IF…) Jonny will return in fighting form. He may in fact, be gone for as long as 3 months. ‘Hibernation in Black’ we are describing it.
But on to the day’s business.
WASHINGTON – President Bush sought to save Michael Mukasey’s troubled nomination for attorney general Thursday, defending the retired judge’s refusal to say whether he considers waterboarding torture and warning of a leaderless Justice Department if Democrats don’t confirm him.
“If the Senate Judiciary Committee were to block Judge Mukasey on these grounds, they would set a new standard for confirmation that could not be met by any responsible nominee for attorney general,” Bush said in a speech at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.
“That would guarantee that America would have no attorney general during this time of war,” the president said.
Translation : “But Mom!!! I want it NOW ! ! ! ! !!” This is the guy who said (Yes, I am QUOTING)
“I don’t know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.”
“I don’t know where he is. I’ll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him.”
and “Deep in my heart I know the man’s on the run, if he’s alive at all…I just don’t spend much time on it, really, to be honest with you.”
Then he goes on to say that Congress is doing a shitty job? Fuck you rich boy.
A Baltimore federal jury awarded nearly $11 million Wednesday to the father of a Marine killed in Iraq, deciding that the family’s privacy had been invaded by a Kansas church whose members waved anti-gay signs at the funeral.
It was the first-ever verdict against Westboro Baptist Church, a fundamentalist Christian group based in Topeka that has protested military funerals across the country with placards bearing shock-value messages such as “Thank God for dead soldiers.”
You know…I’m not even sure what to say about this sum-of-the-earth masking as a holy man. Fuck that guy and his whole family and congregation. Fuck you Fred. Fuck you.
State Rep. Richard Curtis, R-La Center, admitted to having sex with a man he met at an adult video store in Spokane last week, according to a police report released Tuesday afternoon.
The police report contains an account of how Curtis allegedly donned women’s clothing, red stockings and a black sequined lingerie top before engaging in a sex act at the store. He then continued to wear them throughout the night under his clothing, the report says.
I won’t get into the freakiness described because the only sex I’m interested in is the teenage gangbang underneath me that keeps me up every damn weekend, and the eventuality of being invited to join. Then I can show these young’ns how its REALLY done, American Style.
What I will say is ‘Values Voters’ really need to look long and hard at looking for people who are not these ‘Do as I say, Not as I do’ types. Bubba admitted to having an affair, but at least it was with a woman. A plumper, sure… but a female nonetheless.
Uneasy U.S. diplomats yesterday challenged senior State Department officials in unusually blunt terms over a decision to order some of them to serve at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad or risk losing their jobs.
Service in Iraq is “a potential death sentence,” said one man who identified himself as a 46-year Foreign Service veteran. “Any other embassy in the world would be closed by now,” he said to sustained applause.
Yeah… the Green Zone is a place you want to work. Its safe; you can go shopping. If you have an escort of 100 troops and 2 apache helicopters, Abrams tank flack jacket…
Well, that’s all for now. I feel better, don’t you? I know it’s hard reading so many things, trying to stay informed. I know you’d rather go bike and drink and play Halo 3, but think of it this way. When you are old and broken, you can say ‘You have no idea how bad it was. I was there. I lived thru that shit. NOW GET THE FUCK OFF MY LAWN!” And that is where true happiness lies.
