Quickies

Stephen Colbert's bit at the White House Correspondent's Dinner is getting all of the political buzz today. Editor and Publisher has a write up. Crooks and Liars offers WMP and QT files (warning - big files). Boing Boing points to a high quality BitTorrent. Enjoy!

What is it with South Carolina? First, some nut proposes a ban on sex toys and now the same nut has proposed shipping drug offenders and pedophiles to prisons in foreign countries.

Gasoline prices may not have peaked. According to the Guardian, prices may hit $100 a barrel. Using their price per liter and converting it, that may result in U.S. prices reaching about $7 a gallon. Even Hastert and crew might forgo leaving their SUVs idling when that happens. (Who am I kidding - the wealthy corrupt politicians don't care? Besides it demonstrates allegiance to their oil masters).

I'd ship the pedophiles, gladly, but his sex toy thing wow...

And the drug offender shit. God, why are people such idiots when it comes to drugs and sex?

I understand your feelings about pedophiles. Unfortunately, though, shipping them away is not a good solution. They are our citizens and we have to afford them the rights of our country - just as we do murderers and (adult) rapists. They are a tough problem to deal with, though.

We agree on the issues of sex toys and drugs. Our attitudes on these issues drive me bat shit crazy.

"At the recent Washington Correspondents' Dinner, master comedian Stephen Colbert performed magnificently. With the rapier of wit and the mace of truth, he respectively skewered and censured the presidency of "dum'ass botch".

Talk about wonderful lagniappe! Mr Colbert made that nincompoop's lap dogs in our national conventional media run for cover with their tail between their legs. And that's not all our man accomplished.

Tucked away in his address to the dinner's flabbergasted attendees, like a ticking time bomb, there was an 'easter egg', which we had absolutely . . . here 'we' is a polite nod . . . NO right to expect. Like the Easter Bunny in a mischievous mood, Mr Colbert camouflaged a bon mot, so profound as to approach philosophical.

oh, before I reveal Mr Colbert's casual accomplishment, I should like to preface with a caveat. The appropriate interpretation of that remark requires sagacity an-- . . ."

oh, alright (!) already, I'll admit it. The above text is meant to serve as "bait" for the dear Reader's curiosity. Yes, I would like people to visit my blog. And why not?! The average visitor is bound to find one or two startling insights. What's more, it's a good bet that more than a few visitors will discover that I evoke with the written word thought, hitherto more, well, tantalizing than articulated.

. . . oh, yeah, I should add that the full title for that post is "rehabilitation of and by and for the right wing" . . . by the bye, depending on visitor's essentiality, one might be either heartened or dismayed by one, or two, of my easter eggs.
