    • And They Made A Desert: 80 to 90% Drop In Nutrients In Food
      Stumbled across this lovely chart the other day. The core fact most people, including the folks in the “best every world” Panglossian movement (like Pinker) don’t seem to understand, is that even if they were right (questionable), the prosperity we have is based on burning down our house. “Sure is hot! Hottest it’s every been!” […]

  1. Play nice!

  2. Clowns are such delightful people!

  3. Clowns are scary. But myiq is delightful.

    🙂

  4. Refreshments anyone,

    Pulled Pork Belly sandwiches
    Chocolate Covered Kerrys
    Argula Salad w/ spreadable wealth
    ACORN PIE
    Kool Aid

  5. I’ve heard that cannibals don’t eat clowns, because they “taste funny”

  6. I love a nice clean post! Thanks, MyIQ.

  7. madamab, he’s beautiful! Soft, cuddly, warm and mellow! What a sweetheart! And smart, to boot!

  8. katiebird: please! Don’t tell me clowns eat cannibals.

  9. Has anyone seen Gary or Mawm today?

  10. Whoops! Sorry – kitchen

    Time to sleep.

  11. urge- here… I’ll loan you some zzzzzzz’s

  12. Since this is an open thread, I’d like to say that I’ve been really enjoying reading the blog that Heidi Li recommended the other day, Dissenting Justice. I highly recommend it too. There is a great historical post up right now about race in U.S. politics.

  13. No Gary, Mawm or Angie

  14. Utc – Do I sense un peu de snark in your description?

    Afrocity – That sounds like the type of food cults serve their members to make them more susceptible to suggestion.

    But I repeat myself.

  15. Clown jokes??

  16. Wow. This has been a rough couple of days.

  17. Go ahead, make yer jokes.

    Just remember, clowns always get the last laugh

  18. katiebird:

    Tell me about it.

    I’ve literally been getting flamed left and right.

  19. myiq2xu,

    Have you heard about the naked clown calendar? I heard about it on NPR.

  20. The blog has changed! When did we get a search function? Everything is different!

  21. myiq- surely you know we jest… but that would make us jestors, wich makes ur REALLLLLY OLD, so maybe we are just clowning around…

  22. Heard about it? I’m in it!

  23. Which blog, BB? The Confluence has always had a search function.

  24. yep. clowns are still laughing when everyone else has stopped …

    sorry, could NOT resist 😉

  25. The Fool, the jester and the clown are all related.

  26. MyIQ, You’ve been great. I’m so sorry about all the abuse.

  27. I voted today !! It took 3 hours. I heard there were long lines all this week with early voters. It will be ironic if so many people early vote that there are no lines on Nov 4.

  28. Actually a pulled pork sandwich sounds good right about now.

    World’s Ugliest Dog Show on Animal Planet right now. G-d those dogs are fugly.

  29. The front page looks completely different to me. There is a big space between the picture at the top and the top post. I never noticed the search box at the top. I guess I’m just oblivious then.

  30. argh! I am watching Geraldo and I am so sick of this “Historic Moment” crap about Obama. Blah,blah, first black, president. If he were not black Hillary would have won. Geeze wake up people. Sorry guys this is doubly irritating for me as a HRC supporter and as an African American. This election is based on race and nothing else.

  31. Do you think Obama’s popularity would plummet if I became an Obot?

  32. What browser are you using BB?

    That sort of thing happened to me with Firefox when I had the Zoom Add-On.

  33. KB and myiq – I came home from work this afternoon and found 10 trollish comments on my weensy blog. The ones that hurt are the ones from a guy I thought was my friend. He calls me “r*cist brownshirt f*ck” and “batsh#t insane” on a regular basis.

    I’m thinking of moderating my comments again. Some of these people have IP-generating software that makes them difficult to ban.

  34. Naked Clown Calendar

    http://www.nakedclowncalendar.com/

    What month are you myiq?

  35. I’m on IE. I don’t know what’s going on.

  36. SOD – LOL!

    Can someone let me out of moderation? I said the “t” word!

  37. SOD, LOL!

    I had to show my DL and lo and behold it has a strip on the back with info that is supposed to match the front of the license. Mine didn’t and I just got that license 1.5 months ago. Fortunately they had old info and my picture matched. But the election guy took his time to verify I was who I said I was. Made me feel good that at least here in Florida they are trying to enforce 1 person 1 vote.

    Now if they could only not lose the ballots after we vote!

  38. I just checked it in IE and it’s pretty much the same. Could you send me a screen shot? Do Print Screen, save it in Paint and send it to me?

  39. That’s a different calendar.

    Those clowns are good looking.

  40. I pray that the wise ones of the US are able to help McCain/Palin pull it off. They have my vote! PUMA!

  41. MadamaB! It’s good to see you. I’d moderate the comments if you can’t filter them by IP or specific words.

  42. I’m thinking about endorsing him just to destroy his campaign.

  43. Now everything is back to normal. I closed my browser and opened it again.

  44. I use Firefox and had a momentary change of screen earlier today, when I refreshed a thread. It went away when I hit the “back” button.

    Actually, it was kinda cool – full screen instead of having these gray borders at either side, and the comments were Numbered. Was almost sorry to see it go…

  45. a tidbit….

    Linda Ramone will be appearing with Meghan McCain.

    http://www.mccainblogette.com/postings/102508_1054.shtml

  46. Usually I have a thick skin (scar tissue) but a few of the comments lately annoyed me

  47. KB – always good to see you too! 🙂

    I did moderate them before, but I used to get a lot fewer tr011s. Ah, the highs and lows of being a PUMA! Thank goodness for all you lovely Conflucians!

  48. Hey, I’m watching TV in Kentucky, where Lunsford is running back to back ads slamming Mitch McConnell for “taxpayer money going to Wall Street” and “shipping jobs to China”. Apparently just about every credible poll has him within two or three points.

    I’m not one bit happy with Democrats in general this year, but I’m gonna freakin’ jump up and down if Mitch McConnell goes bye-bye.

    And – oh yeah – about a billion episodes of Law & Order on Tivo. What could be better? Maybe the dinner Mr. A just made…mmmm pot roast (apologies to the veggies here)

  49. If you haven’t seen it there is a funny video by Glenn Beck on the Messiah at http://newsbusters.org/ web page. Its really funny. Its attached to his story down around the middle of the page.

  50. Already sent $100 to Lunsford. Think I’ll send a couple more bills, especially since I haven’t had to send any to the Dems for the general election this year.

  51. SOD,

    I do have Vista, but I don’t like to use that percent thing. I have to use the accessibility thing to make the type big enough and then I make it even bigger with the view button. What happened to me before was really wierd. The pic at the top of the blog was sideways from the top post and there was a big space in between those two boxes. Also the typeface was wierd in the comment box. It’s all back to normal now.

  52. Linda Ramone?! Is she related to Joey??

    😉

  53. myiq- what she said… you’re my favorite clown, too.

    anyone planning the PUMA victory party? BO’s gonna have lots of money he won’t be using…

  54. Aw SOD, where were you when I started needing reading glasses a few years ago? I just upped the % to 125 and it’s brilliant!

    Now, back to the regular naked clown and pulled pork sandwiches regular programming.

    KB, I thought about supporting BO to see if it would change his luck. If I honestly thought it would work, I would have to dig very, very deeply to hand over my support but would do it for the cause.

  55. myiq2xu,

    You’re entitled to be annoyed, but just don’t let the Captain loose on us–please!

  56. Eleanor A – that is great news! McConnell is a truly vile human being. I really hope he gets to spend more time with his family in 2009.

    👿

  57. I’ve been reading blogs for a couple-three years now, but I’ve seen some stuff the last couple weeks I don’t remember ever seeing before.

  58. It would be great to get rid of McConnell. I wonder who the new minority leader would be?

    Don’t we all love the confluence? I am just sick of election stuff right now.

  60. Lunsford’s addy:

    Bruce2008.com

    Big Dawg Bill was here yesterday (Paducah) and the paper reported 500 in attendance…which means there were 1000. Wish Hill had come.

  61. Murtha is down 13 points in PA. Methinks he is going to lose his seat.

  62. Hey LI! Welcome to the night shift!

    (Now we just need us some Angie, Regency, and Seriously to really get down and dirty. 🙂 )

  63. I did canvasing for my Rep. representative candidate today. Mostly black neighborhood, some white. Most all were for BO. Some for McCain. Most don’t know the issues except that the economy is bad and we need jobs. Most didn’t know who their rep. was. It was a little depressing.

  64. Little Isis, It’s funny that Murtha would be down that far and Obama isn’t affected at all…..

  65. Speaking of people who are missing, where is Pat? She must have a date tonight. Or maybe she’s reading a good book.

  66. SOD, how you stayed subscribed to MoveOn is beyond me. Ick.

    Though I’m glad someone is watching the enemy’s camp.

  67. Eleanor,
    🙂 Johnny.

    Mmmmm…
    Wish I had been there. Big Dawg = mmmmmmm…

  69. lil’ isis: Yah, I’m sick to death of it all. Mostly of my email box being crammed by acquaintances of mine who know I used to be a yellow dog and are assuming I’m supporting Obama. The usual Palin-bashing jokes, and fundraising beg mail. On the upside, it does let me know what they’re up to.

    Seriously…I’m thinking of changing my addy.

    I think it’s probably speaking volumes that I usually have 367 bumper stickers during an election year and this year all I have is one advertising Bloodshot Records.

    What are you seeing that’s different, myiq?

  70. Oh yeah, that reminds me, where has WMCB been? She always had some good posts.

  71. SOD – Luckily for me, I changed email addresses in March, and the Party sends all its emails to that address. LOL!

  72. Eleanor A, I am getting those emails too and I honestly just delete all of them. Avoiding election stuff is like trying to avoid reading.

  73. Eleanor:

    I’m not gonna say because I’ve heard enough of those topics for a while

  74. Wax lips?! Where??

    Come to think of it, I used to have this awesome Halloween costume…Mick Jagger on the cover of ‘Satanic Majesties Request.’ Avec some wax lips. Maybe I’ll resurrect that this year.

    I didn’t actually go see Bill – I’m working my ass off on a local race – but he never fails to draw ’em in, in the Bluegrass State.

    I think both KY and TN might have been competitive had Hill been the nominee.

  75. Weeeeeeee – I am now having fun playing with the little percentage bar thanks to SOD! I’m on 200 now – I can actually see all the little gravatars now. Some cool pictures there.

  76. Wow, little Isis- where did you see that Murtha was down that significantly? That really bodes ill for Sir Barks-a-lot.

  77. SOD, I fixed it.

  78. More anecdotes: Nashville is usually like 80% Dem. This year, a lot more GOP yard signs that normal, it seems.

    No lines at the early vote for me either. Where I wrote in Hillary for POTUS and otherwise voted straight Green Party.

  79. Damn, Spaulding looks scary at this percentage.

  80. Ten Years to the Singularity (If we Really, Really Try)
    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1615014803486086198

    Have any of you gone to a Singularity event? This dude is amazing in person, and his graphics are cutting edge and he has a sense of humour like myiq2xu, minus the ‘brain tacos’ as I think he is a vegetarian (all his jokes are pc).

  81. I just posted to the American Thinker piece on PUMA.
    I cannot believe the several or so evil BOTS that had to come on and post that Obama was going to win. Why do BOTS always feel the need to convert or get in your face? Even if they see a conservative blog they must jump on and stomp out any hope you have about JM winning or have you notice that they can’t say anything positive about Sarah Palin.

    I don’t know how you guys do it here. How do you keep this place BOT free?

  83. btw, little Isis, we were asking after Regency on bitterz today, is she studying?

  84. WTF?

    I just got an email from PayPal:

    We recently have determined that different computers

    Well, it’s funny to me also, because it makes me think that the MSM is over stating support for him, as usual. I think McCain will be the one to win Pennsylvania as well as Ohio (my home state) Florida, Michigan, Colorado, ect.

  86. myIQ, that sounds fake.

    I’d go directly to paypal (no link or shortcut) and log in as usual to check the account.

  87. Afrocity,

    We are very quick on the trigger. Sometimes they sneak in late at night, and the overnight crowd has fun toying with them. Their frustrated rants go into the spam filter unread and unwanted. So sad…..

  88. I don’t have a PayPal account!

  89. Myiq – that’s a phishing email, I believe.I got the same one a while ago.

    🙂

  90. myiq,

    I get those spam messages all the time. They are trying to get your credit card numbers.

    Those are fishing e-mails so you reply and they get the real account…in your case…poof no account!

    She must be. Normally I wouldn’t be right now, but I had to stay home tonight, because I am a little under the weather from a freezing pumpkin carving party. I hope she comes on tonight, as well as the rest of the late night swinger crew.

  94. I get those with all kinds of bank names on them too.

  95. If Regency is buried in textbooks, I claim the pantsuited beauty tonight!

    (Because you still have Sarah, Little Isis.)

  96. (slapping face)

    You don’t have a PayPal account?

  97. Britannia,

    That is his alter ego, I don’t think that is his photo.

  98. Hands off of what doesn’t belong to you, Scrubs.

  99. Do you guys get the ones from some ROYAL family member in Africa asking for your bank information? Yup, like royals would be needing my help!

  100. Regency, on October 25th, 2008 at 11:06 pm Said:
    Hands off of what doesn’t belong to you, Scrubs.

    Oh REALLY???
    Well, according to the MSM, my winky one is “rogue” right now, so I’ll need me some of that pantsuit pie this evening.

  101. My goodness, what DO I miss on the late shift?! I had no idea you all became so naughty!

    🙂

  102. At least I don’t get penis enlargment spam anymore

    Please put it in a spam can and send it to the BO election nite party. I here they eat that s**t up!

  104. MyIQ, and why is that?

  105. This is tame as Angie is not here…hope she is on vacation with a good bottle of wine, some brie cheese and the finest biskies.

  106. madamab:

    Angie started it.

  107. Our Pantsuited beauty will be turning sixty one tomorrow. Sixty one, and still a knock out. Here’s to the first lady years:

    http://pics.livejournal.com/soturi78/pic/000h0ed1/

  108. I got 3 words for everyone here looking to watch a good movie:

    Vicky. Cristina. Barcelona.

    Finally I understand why Penelope Cruz is a movie star at all and Woody Allen hasn’t lost his fastball.

  109. SOD:

    I modeled FOR the catalog

  110. myiq- you opted into autoship, didn’t you?

    Katiebird, do not even think about requesting our pantsuit wife for any of said naughty time. I have enough problems having to share her and the Big Dawg with Regency and scrubs.

  112. Funny, myiq – I get penis enlargement emails every day.

    If they can enlarge mine, they truly do have a miracle product.

  113. MABlue, my brother-in-law edited a movie called Barcelona but it wasn’t directed by Woody Allen and Penelope Cruz wasn’t in it.

    That one got me laughing hard…oops you know what I mean!

  115. Little Isis, I wouldn’t dream of it. Mister keeps me way too busy.

  116. Uh . . . I forget

  117. Sorry Pantsuity is too busy trying to see what I’m doing for her birthday. She’ll have to learn to live with surprise. Keeps trying to distract me. She’s the reason I’m not getting a paper done right now.

  118. KB,

    I’m talking about Vicky Cristina Barcelona. That’s the full title.

    Is Barcelona a big screen movie or a documentary?

  119. Myiq – Oh, I’m sure you, Regency and LI contributed a little.

    🙂

    OK, time for my walk. Later, s*xpots!

  120. Wooohoooo, we are getting katiebird into the deterioration of the thread now! (We try to be serious as well, KB, but we do have a lot of fun trying to steal each other’s nighttime partners.)

    Yeah, just read about Sarah being rogue. WTF????

  121. I forward all the penis enlargement email I get to my ex-husband.

  122. guess SL is headed to BO’s party

    (tiny voice) byebye

  123. Hi guys, your resident lurker here…
    Angie was upset with RD on Thurs. night and has not posted since then…

    WWWEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! Have fun with your geeky monotony then. That is just more fun for the pantsuit wife and the rest of us when we give her her B-day Prezzies.

    I have not thought of what I’m doing for her B-day…

  125. Regency, I knew I only had to threaten to take P1 (pantsuited one) for the night and you would show up! Welcome to the fun and games but you should really study if you have a paper due. I’ll watch her for a litle while so your grades don’t suffer, okay?

  126. SOD, you did GREAT!

  127. Nothing wrong with Sarah being Rogue if her handlers are doing more damage than good. Hillary was best when she went Rogue.

  128. Things that make you go hhhmmmmmmmmm.

  129. Laney,
    We know. We just want her back. Wish I knew what it would take to entice her back. Doesn’t she have a crush on you myiq? Surely you could whisper some sweet somethings in her ear to get her posting again!

    Besides a dazed expression and some other kind of holy-roller garb…

  132. dcattorney:

    Isn’t he a big enough dick already?

  133. I think it’s better to let time heal things. Sometimes people need to take a step back — it shouldn’t be taken personally by anyone.

    And it could just be a coincidence…..

  134. uh, yeah, no. I’ll manage. I need to do this one thing for her and I just can’t decide how to go about it. How do you put your absolute admiration and yes even adoration for someone you’ve never met into a post?

  135. Rogue? Why are they saying she’s rogue? the usual running without penis?

    Hi, say have you heard from Carolyn KB?

  137. LOL, kitchen. It would be funny to read some of them. This woman wrote to me on You Tube asking me to reconsider my position and started regaling over the benefits of the DNC. I nicely said no which is far better than the 26 times I have been called a C@NT by BOTS when they hear my position.

    I have never known democrats to be so nasty.

    Ya. I’m not worried. This time BO can’t buy and bully and bribe his way into the white house, like he did with the nomination. And our Pantsuit wife will have the last laugh.

    When McCain wins, I wonder if Palin and Hillary will work together on Special Needs issues? I actually can imagine them becoming good friends.

  139. I used to have this beautiful French 4 foot tall mime clown doll that I had “seated” in my living room. It was a marvelously conspicuous adornment but I had to pack it away — it gave my daughter nightmares. Just what the heck is it with you clowns??? She was never accosted at the circus…

  140. Carolyn? Do I know her?

  141. Can I fantasize about a Hillary/Palin ticket? Just for a few minutes…?

  142. my lovely wife and I used to dress up to pass out candy on Halloween. Maybe we’ll dress as BO & MO and pass out packets of Kool Aid.

  143. I’m gonna go miss Angie by myself.

    Y’all have fun!

  144. Maybe we’ll dress as BO & MO and pass out packets of Kool Aid.

    A capital idea!!!!

    i’m supposed to go to a party and the only thing is, I just don’t wanna talk about BO all night. So maybe I’ll just wear a toga or something lazy…

  145. g’night MyIQ!

  146. C ya IQ! Sweet nightmares…;)

  147. SOD, LOL…all I can say is my current situation is much more satisfying.

    “I have never known democrats to be so nasty.”

    Check out a university campus. I am not surprised by any of it, actually.

  149. hey does anyone know what is happening with no quarter? It doesn’t seem to be working for me.

  150. SNL time

    I am going to put a birthday message for her on my blog, I’ve decided. I don’t know what I will write either though.

  153. biden/murtha
    should be funny

  154. NH —

    Don’t count on it.

  155. MyIQ – he sure is. I will start forwarding the email to his current wife, instead.

  156. Told ya, Murtha did it on purpose.

  157. afrocity….it will be historic.

  158. Nite, I am off to have milk and cookies and go to sleep.

  159. lmao they are riffing on biden’s “international crisis”

  160. Worst VP ever.

  161. Woman Voter – hi … I did hear from Carolyn. She had some vandalism at her house because of her political signs and a cat was killed. She left a note on my blog about it. But I haven’t heard anything more in the last few days.

  162. afrocity – civilization is much less civil than it used to be.
    that anyone would use that word to label a person astounds me.

    by the way – i do admire your dedication considering the multitude of Bots around you.

  163. I noticed that every time I express vehement dislike for Obama to an Obot they go off and send him money saying what a savior he’ll be. I need to stop talking to them at all. I don’t try to engage them…

  164. Do you fold the tinfoil hat differently so they don’t recognize you?

  165. gird your loins lmao

  166. Nite to those leaving, especially our endowed one, myiq! 🙂

    Glad to hear SNL picking on someone else.

    Regency and LI: I wouldn’t know how to put the admiration into words, myself. Someday I want her to personally autograph a copy of that picture of her in the rain – my all-time favorite Hillary photo. (Shit, it makes me teary just thinking about it.)

  167. Well, I would dress as an Obot for Halloween, but I don’t believe it’s constructive to traumatize children. And since All Hallow’s Eve is a holy day for your truly, I wouldn’t think it appropriate to dress as evil incarnate.

  168. SOD, “very satisfying…”
    LOL

  169. It is truly stupid. I am cherishing these last 8 days of not knowing what will happen.I pray everyday that Americans will come to their senses and not vote for Obama.

  170. Kitchen,

    It has been lonely and very sad. Today at the McCain event I was afraid and sort of paranoid.

  171. Wasn’t Murtha a Hillary supporter for a while? Hmmm, maybe he DID do it on purpose – maybe he’s sick of it all himself.

    (grin) My governor, Ted Strickland, was an ardent Hillary supporter, and methinks he is not that enthusiastic for BO.

  177. kitchen…

    I have a full collection of tinfoil hats. I’m working on tinfoil sunglasses to disguise myself.

  178. Murtha was big time Hillary guy.

    I still hold he’s doing it on purpose and is prepared to lose his seat to hurt BO’s chances at PA.

  181. I just want to go on record in this thread as well to say that Joe Biden is an idiot….

    now that that’s off my chest… what else is happening in the world? 🙂

  182. BB — if you have windows Vista you can increase the blog size and eliminate the grey borders by clicking the % icon in the bottom right of your screen tray to make it a higher number.

  183. afrocity – definitely a pack of Kool-Aid – or even that big koolaid jug guy.

  184. Little Isis – I was lucky enough to meet her at Terry McAuliffe’s house early this year. She was incredible and gracious, and what I noticed was she took the time to talk with everyone but was especially interested in the teenagers who were there.. she was asking them what they were doing in school and their plans for the summer, and really listening to them.

    I treasure the photo I have of her, my (current) husband and me.

    I think the polls showing he might lose his seat have to be reflective of how BO is doing in PA. If Murtha is down that much, than I think BO does not even have a chance there.

  186. Okay so here is the latest on the Biden/West interview:

    Biden told several lies, such as Obama never saying he would not spread the wealth around. He said Bush has been spreading the wealth around. Biden also said Obama’s organization had no connection to ACORN. It was the first time he had tough questions, and all interviews with the station have been canceled by Obama. Obama wants total control of the information coming out about his campaign, his intolerance about questioning says a lot about the man.

  187. It would be hilarious if a bunch of people dressed as packs of koolaid or the koolaid pitcher.

  189. Tell Barbara West she’s the only real journalist left!

  190. LI: Exactly. I don’t think there was a question of Murtha regaining his seat until he said what he did about Western PA. He brings money to that place with his earmarks; tha’ts how he’s kept that seat for so long. Why do that to your reputation if it’s not warranted?

  191. I’m dressing up as a sheep with an obama/biden button on my chest

    I tell you, when Obama loses, I just want to see the look on all of the Obot’s faces… That will be the greatest thing to see in the entire world.

    By the way, on my blog right now, I am writing a post and it is a mock interview between Chris Matthews and Sarah Palin. Chris Matthews keeps trying to get Sarah to agree to a Public cat fight with Hillary, where they both eventually make out with eachother. Needless to say, Sarah is resisting so far. It will be up in a few minutes.

  198. Geezz… Someone told him way late to shut up

  199. SOD, I don’t know him well, but I will do that the next time I talk with him.. I believe he is going to run for governor of Virginia next year. So if he does, I’ll be doing my best to support him and raise money for him. He is really a great fellow.

    Plus, if he runs, we’ll be seeing Hillary and Bill a lot around here.

  200. scrubs — I love seeing their crazy urgency and calls for ice cream parties. it’s a hoot.

  201. Interesting thought: that Murtha is doing himself in just to make sure Obama doesn’t make it. If true, I admire him a lot but wish he would have taken a stand BEFORE Barack became the nominee. As a matter of fact, I wish ALL the superdelegates had thought this through earlier.

    No worries – McCain is going to pull it out.

  202. moderation help please???

  203. Simofish – that’s actually a very good ad. Especially the last word: developing.

  204. thank you ms. katiebird!

  208. it’s midterms right now…Regency is probably buried in textbooks and term papers

  209. But he’s not just ruining his career, he looks like a complete freakin’ jackass dissing the voters like that. That’s a hell of a hit to take for the team. My personal opinion, there’s a hell of a lot of people high up in the Democratic Party who just suck, even some Clinton supporters. My Congressman endorsed Clinton but overall, he still sucks.

  210. Oh..myiq2xu… der — it’s PHISHING.

  211. I say this because a lot of these Democrats were NOT insane when they were working for Hillary but proximity to the Big Jeezus made them crazy.

  212. katiebird — LOL! what a great visual

  213. They hardly run any ads in Connecticut. I have seen more McCain/Palin signs go up in the last week though. I was surprised. I wonder if Lieberman is having any effect.

  218. Just watched the Biden interview and all I’ve got to say is: Biden is a gasbag idiot with an inane gasbag idiot grin (maybe it’s the bad eye lift?). Oh, and Barbara West is my new hero.

  219. Correction: Biden is a lying gasbag idiot, etc.

  220. I never told anyone I got those thinking it some one being mean that signed me up for them! I put that word enlargement in the spam filter…I don’t see them any more.

  221. Yeah but now the crazy will taint him. If he loses his seat, then no way HRC can use him or give him a job in ’12 because now he’s “that guy.”

  236. Indigogrrl,
    I haven’t had a problem with No Quarter but, they’ve got a note up saying that they’ve switched to a new server and some people will need to clear their cache to get in.

    They must have actually changed their IP address….

  237. katiebird — I anticipated your swift and fierce judgment with the tr0l! spray.

  238. Can anything be done for WFTV’s News Anchor Barbara West in Florida? Maybe a mass email stating our support. She asked Joe Biden tough questions about Barack Obama’s tax plan and its relation to Marxism. The Obama campaign has cut off all communication with the TV station because they embarrassed the Senator. I think an anchor who asks tough questions of a candidate at this time should be acknowledged. Just a thought.

  239. Not necessarily. A lot of the folks who endorsed Hilllary were people that were either term-limited or that had held their seats for a very long time, and therefore were very unlikely to be unseated by a “monied competitor.” These people have by and large moved to the other side at this point. When they say CrAzY stuff, they have a record of doing good things for their constituents, so they can either be unseated or given the benefit of the doubt. It’s a risk.

  240. SNL is dissing Biden and Murtha

  241. Hi Chimera – I’m in CT too. Seen only national-buy ads for Bambi (thank god) and McPalin signs in clusters. Safety in numbers?
    Which makes me think of my remarkable 93-year-old aunt. She’d been on the board of finance in her small town for decades but finally had to resign because she has trouble walking. But she proudly displays her 2004 re-election yard sign on her front porch. All this spring, she kept telling me not to give up hope for Hillary. “Anything can happen in politics’, she said.

Having said that I must thank all you “pumas” for being such great Americans.

  282. fif, what operating system and browser are you using again?

  283. I’m guessing mostly the military want McCain

    Someone did a poll of the military, and it was something like 75% McCain, 25% (or lower) BO, including active duty soldiers. Also, 200 retired military officers endorsed McCain & 4 retired Secretaries of State. As they said about Hillary, “it’s a no brainer.” Obama is a nerdy intellectual with little practical experience. He should have continued as a lecturer. I still can’t believe people seriously think he is prepared to handle the military/foreign policy, the economy, domestic issues, etc. As Bill said, “it’s a total roll of the dice.”

  284. fif, I just went over and had no problem. http://www.noquarterusa.net just worked for me.

  285. fif, I found their server thread with 207 comments, so it seems there were others having problems too. I’m gonna read the thread and let you know if I find something.

I heard a woman on the radio yesterday talking about running her small business in FL. She and her husband have worked their butts off for 20 years, and have 16 employees. She said, “BO has no idea what it means to meet a payroll, to deal with risk and liability, etc.” Remember when he actually suggested that his campaign experience was “executive experience” that proved he was ready to be president? How clueless can he get? It’s going to take a lot more than a village to support him, as we already see by his battalion of advisors.

  302. “She’ll be getting a lot of pressure, because she’s been offiically banned by O & Co.”

    In that article Britannia linked up above about Palin’s rogue status, all Ben Smith does is whine and moan about her limited access to the press. Thank god for the Obama rules.

  303. Finally got that post up.

  304. Sigh

    Today I picked up a McCain Palin sign for my window. No one seems to be able to give me an answer on the BC pill question though. I think I kinda scared the poor RNC folks. They weren’t prepared to have someone come in declaring they were a Democrat but would be voting McCain Palin at all. I pretty much said I didn’t need the family values spiel since I didn’t agree with it but McCain got my vote because he didn’t cheat in his primary.

  305. I did, thanks, LI. I love Dr Violet Socks.

  306. Mkay Regency, I’m reading your new post now.

  307. It probably took you longer to type that message than to read it. That is NOT the birthday gift.

  308. Although, the comments there are often depressing, when people quote the lunatic female Obots they know, scary.

  309. I left a comment regency, Have you visited my blog? I have a new post up.

    OH!!!! Okay dokey.

    Yes, I just saw. Like I said, I’m putting mine up until tomorrow.

  311. LI: I did. I got caught between other things but I saw your post and it was decidedly accurate in nature. Scary mfers. It just bugs him that that makes 2 women who’ll never screw him.

    Should I I comment? I shall, I think.

    I read the comments too, and sometimes I comment myself, but I like the comments. They put things into perspective for me.

    “Today I picked up a McCain Palin sign for my window.”

    I wanna get one for my car, but I need to head over to my university and I sort of want my car to last a little longer. I hope you live in a safe area, because people have been really getting sh1t over this election. Stay safe!

  314. Hey, does anyone know what happened to sonya? It looks like her blog is still there but it’s friends only now?

    You mean three billion women that would rather f*&ck a goat than him.

  316. It just kind of scares me what sick things female Obots say. I read that stuff and it really upsets me. I like the other comments.

  317. My computer at home hates blogger so here’s the comment I’ve been trying to leave, Isis:

    Spot on, Isie Hot. Spot on.

    You should be receiving a “cease and desist” notice in about 24 hours, as well as a subpoena. Chris Matthews surely thinks you’ve stolen his dream journal and published it online. Only difference is in his journal, not only does Sarah agree but Hillary’s waiting anxiously out in the wings for them to Get. It. On.

    He is so sick. Asshole.

    You, however, are awesome. Great post.

    Excellent comment!!!
    Why can’t you comment on blogger??? Oh, and did you read the post below that? It has a real interview (I mean it, a real one) from a few days ago. You probably saw it all ready, it is the one where that chick from Nightline or something interviews our pantsuit wife, trying to get her to bludgeon Palin, and it goes on and on. Hillary calls Palin “An extraordinary woman.”
    Oh, how I love the B-day girl.

  319. I can’t get through to NQ for hours now. Anybody know what’s up?

  320. Is it weird that I wanna write her Inaugural Address as a birthday gift? I’ve already started it, so…A little presumptuous? Okay, I’ll put that off.

    Hmmm. I’ve got about three others in mind. This is killing me. So much to do, so little time.

    *sigh*

    I’m out for the night. Gotta write a paper for Tuesday (oh, F*&(), do math homework for Monday, and…sleep, I suppose.

    LOVE!

  321. Lil Isis: I saw that interview and was so proud of our Pantsuit wife. She is just not gonna beat up on her no matter how much they beckon. Neither will Big Dawg candy. I love them so much I could just bosom-hug them to death.

    Normally I can post on Blogger but tonight it won’t go.

    (cuddles big dawg and the pantsuit wife)

    Night Regency!!! Sleep well.

  324. Night, Isis.

    Hands away from the pants–on both counts!

  325. G’night Lil Isis!

  326. Night

  327. Ellen D, somebody said NQ has a new server and you’ll need to clean your cache to get on it.

  328. Did fif go to sleep? So, to those who are having trouble getting to NoQuarter, I found the following information in their “server” thread:

    The new DNS entries for noquarter haven’t updated everywhere yet. It usually takes two days. Until then, there will be a lot of people that can’t get here.

    Basically, this means that not all name servers (which depend on your provider) have been updated, and so not all can resolve noquarterusa.net. If you are a little computer savvy, there is a way around this. You can edit the “hosts” file of your computer (google it, depending on your OS), usually found in /etc/hosts, and add the following IP address and domain name:

    72.34.45.181 noquarterusa.net

    Or you can just keep trying later today or until the name servers get updated.

  329. I also cannot get onto noquarter and have been asking around. No one answers. I am really starting to top out on the weird from all directions! I’m getting really mad about it. WTF is going on??

  330. Oh, yeah, like what Seriously said, the first thing you have to do is clear your cache and cookies. If that doesn’t work, then refer to my previous comment.

  331. I went to teh google, searched for “No Quarter” and clicked on the one that wasn’t a Led Zepplin lyric

    Ta-da!

  332. Were you having problems earlier, myiq? If you were, then that’s a brilliant solution.

  333. Listen, I know I’m going to sound as though I’ve got my copper lined, tin-foil hat firmly strapped to my chin but:

    Fox News has been the ONLY scrambled channel for weeks on my tv. Called my cable provider RCN weeks ago about it and they said they were doing maintenance “on the line”. I’ve been unplugging the cable and power for about 20 seconds and that has been a cure. But today? No Cure, just scramble and only that channel.

    ADD to that Noquarterusa being unavailable since last night. I am frittering. The upthread hint about how to bypass the Noquarter problem is so way over my head I don’t even know where to begin, though I took their first instruction about googling ‘hosts’. You know for a non-tech person – utterly unhelpful! I’m running windows xp – what exactly do I do to get to NQ?

  334. anon, did you try it myiq’s way, i.e. googling no quarter?

  335. Just google it and click on the link, anon

  336. oh yeah, from early this morning till now. I can’t get there from Mozzila, Explorer, Safari or even the RCN portal.

  337. NQ working for me from down here in Oz.

    On similar topic, the Confluence threads have caused IE to close them quite a few times this week. Is that because of the gravatars?

  338. myiq2xu-

    I clicked your link and got the same error message I’ve been getting since late last night. “Server migration” is WAY over my head. All I know is that I can’t get there from my home pc, my sis’ or my Mom’s and we all live in Chicago.

    Perhaps I need lead lining in my copper-lined tin foil hat. help.

  339. anon, here are instructions on how to add entries to your hosts file for Windows XP:

    http://support.frontgatecorp.com/questions.php?questionid=42

    Follow all instructions except step 5. Instead, for step 5, cut and paste the IP address and domain name I gave above to the bottom of the file. And make sure you don’t delete anything that was originally in the file. It would be best to make a copy of the hosts file before you edit it.

  340. Hmmm, anon, maybe it’s the Chicago part of it all – I’m sure Barack has had a part in this.

  341. Well, we can tell you what’s up there–there’s a thread about OH officials accessing Joe the Plumber’s confidential files…

  342. anon, there’s really no need for a tinfoil hat in this case. There is a valid reason for the technical difficulties.

  343. Here is the top story at NQ right now, from a cross post at The Independent View:

    http://theindependentview.com/?p=268

  344. …talked to a software engineer friend and he said that (as I understood it) the change in server is just a matter of who hosts the site (Business X –named “hell”– sets up at another location) and the domain remains the same (Business X still has the same name “hell”); but the “address” that “points” to X has to be upgraded (I don’t follow all of it) which can take 24-48 hrs and can create problems. There are other possibilities, but my eyes glazed over in the midst of the exegesis..

    anon, I have Safari and closed all my windows, hit reset, and all was good (but I am in HRC territory, so all is good -hee hee)

  345. And this was in the comments for that thread:

    http://www.nypost.com/seven/10252008/news/politics/bam_staffers_pull_their_bogus_ohio_ballo_135152.htm

    It’s about some more cheaters of Obama’s in Ohio.

  346. jvsp, the domain name (noquarterusa.net) remains the same, but the IP address was changed. The new IP address is posted at 2:24 am above.

  347. http://neverfindout.org/

    A way cool link also from the comments of the Joe the Plumber thread. Has lots of cool JM ads.

  348. scrubs, at the rate you’re going, anon won’t need to go to NoQuarter. 🙂

  349. OMG, Biden is so not ready for prime time. I mean granted, that question was kind of ridiculous imo, but….”Are you serious?” That’s your answer? The VP has to uh, interact with teh press and answer all kinds of questions, silly or not.

    Oh yeah, I forgot, that wouldn’t apply to an Obama Emperorship.

  350. Thanks to all of you for your responses! I am feeling such appreciation for you good people! Still can’t get to NQ, despite myiq2xu’s advice. grrrrrr(low and threatening)

    I called RCN early this afternoon and they also told me wait 48 hours, kinda like jvsp’s comment. WTF though? What’s with signing off to all us sorta PUMAS without notice?

    And GD it, what up with my scrambled FOX news??

    Sorry guys, I’m feeling the end of my rope!

  351. Brit, that is what I meant by all that blather up above, or thought I meant. But, what you said!!!

    I can access the site, but commenting takes forever. Are you having the same experience?

  352. Or maybe I’m being unfair and my expectations are too high because I know that he’s the world’s most amazing debater. *rolls eyes*

  353. jvsp, they have this tip on their “During our server migration” thread:

    If people will post a comment, then open another window or tab of the blog, call up the page they just posted the comment to, they will see their new comment much faster.

    I don’t really hang out at NQ.

  354. “sorta” PUMAS?

  355. I would say you might have high expectations, Seriously. 🙂 I haven’t seen the interview.

  356. Yeah me neither Brit

  357. I didn’t see it, but I read about it. Whatta maroon!

    The Democratic Patry: Know those movies where a ragtag band of misfit idiots takes over a sports team? Yeah! Like that!

  358. Isn’t there live streaming for FOX (radio)? What about video?

    Brit, Thanx!! That works much better!

    The Biden interview is a thing of beauty.

  359. New post up – this one is full anyway

  360. Palin deserves our respect

    I cannot predict who will win the presidential campaign, but I already know who will lose big: all women.

    I realized this when I saw a 20-something male student who attends a class in the community college where I teach, wearing a T-shirt that read, “Sarah Palin is a C-.” He wore it in public, in broad daylight, and without shame or even consciousness of what he was doing.

    Instead of engaging Palin on the issues, critics attacked attributes that are specifically female. It is Hillary’s pantsuit drama to the power of 10. Palin’s hair, her voice, her motherhood, and her personal hygiene were substituted for substance. That’s when it was nice.

    The hatred escalated to performers advocating Palin be “gang raped,” to suggestions that her husband had had sex with their young daughters, and reports that her Down syndrome child really was that of her teenage daughter. One columnist even called for her to submit to DNA testing to prove her virtue. Smells a little like Salem to me. I was present at an Obama rally at which the mention of Palin’s name drew shouts of “stone her.”

    Agreement on issues is not required, but Palin merits respect.

    It is dismaying that misogyny and sexism are so excessively marbleized into our daily interactions that some of us cannot even recognize their existence when confronted with it or when staring at it directly in the mirror.

    The author provides a good summary of what has transpired.

  361. Britannia:

    Please repost your last comment on the new thread

  362. I had my browser go a bit slow last week. Then I updated and things are snappy now.
    ps I use Opera 9.61, it’s safer and faster, and now free. (it’s Norwegian!!)

  363. Myiq, you have a fan

    pumapalinwatch.livejournal.com

    please note: it is a trip into the unhinged world of the Obamazoid mind. Bring a bucket

  364. Used to be: Obama masks sold more, he wins! Maybe not in Ohio though, as they want you to mock Palin as touching Him would be racist
    http://edgeoforever.wordpress.com/2008/10/26/obama-halloween-racist-palin-mocking-lotsa-fun/

  365. I say we talk about the economy and issues. Not who’s cheating who or all this other I have seen. Google “In the Realm of the PUMA” for some humor. If results don’t come up right away, wait and search again. Was very funny and from a WP blog.

  366. So anybody play drums?
