Coup de Foudre
Oh, my. There it was on television. The comparison was, um, well, it wasn't really a comparison. More like a contrast. Vivid. No ambiguities. Clear. Even the Republican knuckle-draggers in Georgia probably got it. (Okay. Scratch that part. The Republican knuckle-draggers in Georgia don't get shit. Ever. They hug their guns, beat their kids, fight with their overweight spouses, go to church most Sundays, and always, always vote for whatever Republican the tee-vee evangelist tells them to vote for so that the queers are stopped.) First, there was Barack Obama standing in front of the ancient Temple of Hercules in Amman, Jordan, telling the assembled press corps his ideas for peace in the Middle East. Behind him, sitting quietly and showing unusual deference, two other U.S. Senators, Republican Chuck Hagel and Democrat Jack Reed. The AP photo of that moment - a photo that floated across the Web and was reproduced in hundreds of newspapers around the globe - was impressive. Change was about to pounce on . . . History! Mine eyes have seen the Glory . . .!

And, then, of course, there was the required coverage of lost, twitchy, rheumy-eyed John McCain. Required not by some archaic "equal time" provision in FCC rules and regs. How quaint would that be? No, the requirement is self-imposed by management and is there solely to prevent CNN or MSNBC or the broadcast networks being accused by the right wing booger-pickers of See! We told you! There's your goddam liberal bias. Looky! They got cameras on Obama. Looky! Boy, they better show some McCain, too! Sumbitches!

So, the cabled nets switched to McCain. Oy. There he was. In a golf cart. A GOLF CART! And, who was the skinny, all sweatered-up banshee driving? Yikes! George H.W. Bush, his own mottled self. All squinty-eyed, his mouth open so he can breathe, that permanent shit-eating sneer plastered over his wrinkles. PAPPY BUSH! Driving Mister McCain! Around in circles! No, wait! Stop! Okay, go! Hey, this is fun! Wanna see me lay some rubber, John? Heh-heh. My boy likes you, ya' know. Heh-heh. Hey, watch me run over that guy's toes! Crush 'em. Heh-heh.

And before that Golden Moment? There was ol' John doing another of his "town hall" meet-ups. Several dozen white folks, this time herded into some Motel Six conference room in Rochester, N.H., (where??) staring into middle space, rounded up to sit as props and grin when John grins; frown when John frowns; clap when John makes some snarky remark about Obama; sneeze when John sneezes; fart when John farts. Whatever. And, there's ol' John, pacing back and forth in the center of it all, making those little flapping motions with his arms, scaring the small children present, accomplishing nothing, zero, following his tattered script, comme ci, comme a, until all present want to claw out their own eyeballs from the tedium and the warm air coming from the loud, not working window air conditioner .

Meanwhile, back in The Middle East, Obama continues his walkabout, now with the Leaders of Israel!; now with an Honest-To-God KING!; yesterday, Generals! in Helicopters! Before that, applauding, cheering Soldiers! In uniform! And, before that? Private Meetings with Iraq's leaders who then emerge and endorse the Obama Troop Withdrawal Plan and Timetable. TIMETABLE! Not some goddam withdrawal horizon, whatever semantic horseshit that might be. And, tomorrow, who knows? Will the Israelis and the Palestinians - at the sight of the Mighty Obama striding across the HOLY LAND - fall into each other's arms and shriek their mutual love and forgiveness and lower their eyes and whisper their shame at the way they've all been behaving for the past six goddam DECADES???? Huh? Will that happen?

Meanwhile, back in Snoresville, N.H., ol' John is telling his rapidly decaying audience that it took France five years to build a nuclear power plant and complained that in the United States it took 15 years or more. Bodies started to fall out of chairs. Children began to wail with hunger and wet diapers. Ol' John continues. He says that Americans did not readily accept France as a role model, saying self-mockingly, "As you know we always want to imitate the French." Someone - a short order cook? a Safeway manager? - offers him a chunk of Brie. He declines. Too close to supper.

And then it comes. The coup de grace. Fox News cuts away from ol' John's mind-battering speech about France and cheese (was it cheese?) and Obama not having real leadership ability like ol' John does, to cover the rescue of a bear cub wounded in a California fire and nicknamed Lil Smokey. The cramped audience runs for the exits.

Back in The Real World, the world of Challenge and Leadership and Future Presidents and Massive Ancient Ruins and Generals and Kings and Prime Ministers and absolutely No Farts or sneezes or twitchy, chicken-like arm flapping, Senator Barack Obama continued to stride across the Middle East, without a helmet, and no body armor, the desert opening before him, while the winds of time - Old Time, Biblical Time - whistles through his close-cropped hair.

Happy Birthday Ichingcarpenter & smokey nj!

norm, except during the presidential primary between Obama and Clinton when the turn out was record breaking. I suppose we're back to our norm. :shrug:

Hoping that all is well with you and your family! Thanks, we're gonna need all of the luck that we can get. We'll hopefully arrive at 2 a.m. and we have to be out and about for registration at 7:30. The choice was between leaving late at night or getting up around 4 a.m. to make the drive. Yay, what lovely choices, lol! :hi: :hug:

The Fairness Doctrine should be brought back. There are only certain frequencies assigned for broadcasting purposes (MF - aka the AM band, the VHF FM band, VHF & UHF TV, and shortwave - US-based stations are mostly religious or wingnut)

than Joementum. If we start now, perhaps we can do something. I know I'll give Tasini money if he runs.

Thanks, but my birthday isn't until Sunday. How are you and the fuzz crew doing tonight? Big :hug:s and lots of ear scratches and tummy rubs from me, Edie and the NJ boyz! One of my doggies threw up after his walk today. :( He seemed ok after, but I felt really bad for him. I had to go searching in his owner's kitchen for cleaning supplies and that made me feel very uncomfortable.

:hi: :hug:

Poor doggie. I hope he feels better now. I'm sure the owners would be very grateful that you cleaned up. Yes that would be uncomfortable looking thru stuff.

Do you do this pet sitting every day?

Big squeezes to all the boyz and darling Edie. :loveya:

Your B-day is the 27th, we must celebrate on Friday nite! :bounce: Will you be here?

I feel the same way about Harold Ford, Jr. and his bride trying to unseat Cohen. If they're successful in unseating the best Democrat in the TN delegation, then I may just be done.

Take care. :hi: :hug:

74. Hey Ms. November! Me too!
But I met that threshold some time ago - the FISA thing was the
ABSOLUTE LAST STRAW!

Today while in downtown CLE OH I signed a petition to get
RALPH NADER on the OH ballot!
I got the regional director's number from the guy
to get my own set of petitions! YAY!

I read somewhere that Colorado has EIGHTEEN presidential candidates
ON THE BALLOT already!
:wow:

Don't forget to watch Conyers' hearing on the Lawlessness of Bu$h on Friday!
What a great B-Day gift to me! :rofl:

Heard Dennis tonight on the Peter B Collins show and he said the English language is such
that he should be able to make his points about the impeachment without
calling bu$h A LIAR! GO DENNIS!

:hi: :hug:
Happy Birthday! My birthday isn't until Sunday. Len's voice makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. It's the Brooklyn accent/stuffy nose thing that just drives me up a wall and gives me the urge to beat him with a 2x4. Len's voice is nails on a chalkboard to me.

101. BillORightsMan a story for you
Rabbit saves owners from house fire
A QUICK-thinking bunny, named Rabbit, has saved a Melbourne couple from a devastating house fire.

Rabbit's owner Gerry Finn had been home from night shift only 30 minutes when he heard the black rabbit furiously scratching at the bedroom door about 6am (AEST) today.

He was shocked to discover it had alerted him to a blaze rapidly spreading through the back of his Macleod home, in Melbourne's north.

Smoke blackened the inside of the house, and flames destroyed part of the roof.

Neighbours pitched in with hoses to save the house before four fire crews arrived to extinguish the blaze.

Six days from completing a painstaking two-year renovation, the couple was stunned but relieved to have escaped the fire without injury.

Wife Michelle said Rabbit had alerted them in the nick of time.

"We were both asleep. It was very lucky for both of us," she said.

Rabbit is usually happy to roam around the house, only locked in a cage when guests arrive, she said.

"He's just sort of an inside pet but I don't think he was very impressed," Mrs Finn said.

"We've been renovating for two years - we started with a disaster, and now this.

"All that hard work gone."

A jewellery-maker, Michelle's tools and jewels were also lost in the fire.

Fire investigators believe a heater may have sparked the blaze.

A smoke alarm had been removed from the back room ceiling while the room was painted.

Metropolitan Fire Brigade commander Mick Swift said the couple owed their escape to Rabbit. But, he said, home renovations should be no barrier to fire safety.

"The lesson to learn from this is that even if a smoke alarm is removed it can still be put high up on a shelf," he said.

Rabbit miraculously survived 45 minutes of heat and smoke inhalation before alerting his owners.

The six-month-old bunny will visit the vet for a check-up later today.

It's probably storms causing the problems for Mike too.

63. Happy Wednesday Truthseekers! We're wet and windy, but
Edited on Wed Jul-23-08 09:01 PM by Ilsa
we're here! The hurricane is a couple of hundred miles south of me, but the rain and wind bands are reaching up to us. There is a tornado watch (not warning) for the areas getting the storm. Mike's radio show keeps cutting out, but maybe that's at the source.

:kick:

My new toy looks like this (different brand):


It has a grip on the close side. It's already protected me from my son who has periodic hitting spells. We're trying to get help to figure out where this is coming from in his autism.

Stay safe. My brother's step-daughter is having similar problems with her son who's autistic. Apparently her arms are all bruised and scratched from when he loses his temper, he's gotten my brother a few times as well. He's 10 and he's pretty big for his age.

Another brilliant day for Obama and McInsane was AWOL. Got a condo board meeting/election coming up shortly - 5 openings and 6 people running. I threw my hat in, but I'm the only progressive here, so am not optimistic.

Greetings to all and happy (early) birthday to Smokey and happy birthday to Itchingcarpenter.
