Darth Bambi speaks to you about Disney, the Monsanto of the Mind (tm)

Red Army parties with Wehrmacht in Warsaw suburbs. Poland hangs on to razor-thin lead! CNN

Really, God? Another GIFT? (FIXED)

EDIT: I think they are having javascript-itis over there. Here ya go:

LADIES!!! Care to caption my friend's picture?

Handy reverse cheat sheet ID's all "Solid Christian Conservatives" in CA election.

If you are confused about how to vote on some of the trickier stuff on the ballot in California (Like the South Coast Water District), I found this handy little reverse-cheat-sheet. Thank you Nancy Sandoval for putting together a convenient list of "Solid Christian Conservatives" for us to vote against.

Just look at her list and do the polar opposite of what she says. She has put a lot of time and effort into this and manages to identify even the sneaky stealth candidates.

Just be careful with her "NO" vote on Prop. 31. That may actually be a NO. It seems like everybody hates that one.


Got my mail-in ballot today...

National races are a no-brainer...

Issa will win; thanks to redistricting the suckers who elected him before don't get to vote against him now, but at least I get to vote for his opponent.

CA propositions are also pretty easy to figure out.

It's the local stuff that has me perplexed; there are three seats up for grabs in the South Coast Water District. I have been searching like a fiend trying to find anything tying any of the candidates to Monsanto (or Issa), but coming up dry.

Anyone in the OC got any dirt on this?

Purina's gonna steal my joke today, so here... (pic)

My friend alerted me about the "animal politics" ads Purina is running in advance of the debate, so here ya go...

When Aaron Sorkin uses a statistic in his script, does it then "become fiction?"

I got an eye-roll, a *sigh* and a "you should watch something else" from this guy after I cited a particular statistic that, as it turns out, was used in Jeff Daniels' famous meltdown-rant on The Newsroom.

If the guy were a FOXhead, I probably wouldn't have cared, but he isn't; he's worse. He is so disgusted by the state of our system that he doesn't even want to discuss politics; he's been depressed into submission and non-participation.

He got particularly agitated when I told him that, by doing nothing, he was helping the bad guys.

Has anyone researched the sources of the statistics used in The Newsroom rant? I don't have HBO, but I don't want any arguments I make to instantly lose credibility with people-who-have-lost-all-hope when my facts also happened to show up on that show.

Perhaps an even better question is: How do you talk about November with the "totally-defeated," "it's pointless" class of liberals?

Bad Jazz-Lip Reading

Is there an industry name for this?

I live in California, so this obviously differs from state to state.

Some friends of mine were talking about that block of time between 2am-6am (when you can't buy alcohol in CA) when most TV channels are either airing infomercials or those "lonely-guy" phone-sex/escort ads.

Is there actually a jargony-sorta name in the TV industry for this block of time -- like maybe "Suicide Watch" or "The Despair Block" or "The Void?"
