Ah so let me see, the guy who was forced to resign after it was revealed he also advised the liars know as the “Swift Boat Veterans for Truth’ is now advising Norm Coleman on the recount. Shameful! Hmm, enough said.
I love the MNPUBLIUS for labeling as trash the Republican National Lawyers Association latest fundraising ‘urgent’ message but perhaps they would have gotten more by simply stating the truth…Norm needs more money to pay his attorney defending him on ethic charges…why dirty it up with more lies?
Lookie, R.T. Rybak gets mentioned at gawker…sort of…got to read to the very end…hahaha
Who isn’t running for governor? No, not me! This time MN Senator John Marty…sigh, again.

Bu$h says ‘no debate’ about his keeping US safe! wtf@! Yeah no debate, because we all know what a colossal screw-up he’s been….yeah no debate.
Rick Warren will deliver the invocation at Obama’s inauguration….hmmm…wonder if he will pray for wives to submit to their husbands? While Obama is going to make compromises…my civil rights are not open for negotiations. Rick Warren is an inflated bigot who shouldn’t have a speaker’s podium, let alone given a national one.
‘Evil can’t be negotiated with, it has to be stopped’….so why is Obama handing a anti-gay, anti-choice, pro-assassination idiot the microphone?
I ate Chinese late last night and I have a headache…think I’ll listen to some music…later…

This is from Fox news! Ouch! Guess that house remodel is going to cost Norm more than just money.
Well, we're here---> somewhere in the recount. Maybe but probably not quite over yet. One wonders when to start addressing Franken as Senator Franken? Might be awhile more as the Coleman campaign is suing to to temporarily stop the process until an official counting procedure is in place, a complaint the Minnesota Supreme Court is entertaining today. Still one wonders if it will be worth it for Norm by the time grand jury convenes to review the illegal funneling of monies?
I’m not surprised that Norm has money woes…It’s hard to live like a rock star on a public servant’s pay. What with weekend trips to Paris, expensive cigars, designer suits, house remodels...Now cash strapped Coleman has decided to use his campaign war chest to pay for his uptown lawyer. Of course the Federal Election Commission might see things differently.
"Many of the allegations against Coleman and his wife pre-date the as-yet undecided race against Franken -- even though Coleman has argued the matter only came to light as a result of the campaign- CBS News Story
While these allegations came to light during the campaign, it clearly is outside the venue of campaigning. I've been involved in several and never saw funding for personal defence by criminal attorney. - just making a point.
Only 12 things?
Mark Morford lists 12 things you could, if you wanted, to throw at Bush…
in his words:
Of course, I officially endorse none of the following far more appropriate, delightfully hurl-able options. Do not ever throw anything at President Bush, because you could get shot or perhaps go to jail for a very long time, which, despite how you'd be hailed a hero worldwide forevermore, would just be no fun at all. Don't do it. Throwing is wrong. OK? throwing reality into his face…but…er keep in mind you could go to jail or be shot.
Many would say it’s a small price to pay for instant fame and glory…just saying-
Let start being accountable for ourselves and others
Hmm…reminds me of the old saying…”I use to be all f@ck up on drugs; Now I’m f@ck on g*d.. There’s so many things wrong with this (well at least $500,000!). Call Amy and let her know your thoughts... just advising-
Not just a pretty face
The 2008 Mug Shots of the Year are now posted at the Smoking Gun…let’s just say that number 20 is an unfair representation of minorities and Obama supporters! And for over half, if they got on the elevator late at night, I would get off immediately...just worried about your safety! -
The Prince of War stumbles
About time…er well really it’s eight years too late but still…it’s about time. I’m guessing ‘prince’ won’t be secretly meeting the Prez at the white house… Blackwater received no-bid contracts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and post-Katrina New Orleans from the current Bush administration ...just praying for karma to kick their a@s.-
Giving the go-ahead for torture
Tell me we’re going to charge these guys for their crimes and once convicted throw away the keys. At least as prisoners they'll be treated better than this. ...just praying some more for karma to kick their a@s.-

From the Franken campaign:
"The state canvassing board has soundly rejected the Coleman campaign's attempt to disenfranchise 133 voters in Minneapolis whose ballots were lost during the recount, unanimously deciding to count those votes. In addition, they urged Minnesota's 87 counties to identify, open, and count absentee ballots that were wrongly rejected.
This is a huge win for us, because our position has always been the simple principle that every lawful vote should be counted. But there are still a lot of steps left ahead in this process, and the Coleman campaign is likely to bring a whole lot of political and legal muscle to re-double their efforts to stop the count."

If we’re having a recount…then let’s have a recount where all ballots are all counted…even absentee ballots that were improperly rejected by a broken process that includes election judges' clerical errors. Someone’s vote shouldn’t be tossed because someone else made a clerical error. Do the right thing. See video here.
One of these things is not like the other
This is so unfair to single boots everywhere! Ah but I digress…Illinois Governor Rod Blagojewich and MN Senator Norm Coleman have more in common then you think…the latest being a FBI investigation. In both cases the wives seem to have bit parts. Hmm…one more reason to hope Franken in our next U.S. Senator.
Pawlenty to scream about
When Minnesota is facing a projected multi-million dollar budget shortfall, Governor Pawlenty tells us we need to cut services but remains firmly opposed to any tax increases. Yet the wealthy among us ( top 5% ) pay less in taxes than the rest of us including the poorest among us! Check out what Grace Kelly shows on this. Essentially if we taxed the top 5% their fair share, there would be no budget problem.
Ship of Fools
Joe decides to bail but all the wrong reasons.
Government of Fools
So the ‘must have right now’ money is still half unspent with no clear picture of where the spent money went. What I wouldn’t give for a stronger cup of tea right now!
Save the Jeep, Save the Nation
This country should not be spending all of its financial resources salvaging those who destroyed the economy. America needs to invest in what works — its people.- Leo Gerard
Calling it in
You don’t have to call in gay just to demand that everyone in America get equal rights. Do so either way. Tell those that want to dictate everything from your body health to your sexual preference to STFU? And that goes double for those that do it under the guise of being g*dly.
Step away from the edge
Jobless claims jumped to a 26-year high…over half a million collecting unemployment benefits…”Businesses are laying off workers at a fast pace, and finding employment is ever harder for those laid off”. Maybe Obama could start his new job early?

All are inside the beltway folks with histories of being enablers. Not saying it’s bad especially compared to whom they are replacing but it’s not much of a change from business as usual..Is it? But maybe I’m too cynical and they won’t stick to the conventions of the past…maybe we’ve seen the end of the entropy….or maybe…old dogs can’t learn new tricks…just saying..and hoping steve doesn’t come after me for having an opinion that differs with his!
The recount is winding down…we don’t know the finally outcome waiting: challenges, missing ballots, and a ruling on absentee ballots that should be counted. Maybe a new Senator for the new year? I hope so!
BAWHAHAHA found this entertaining post up on The Bluestem Prairie: News from Minnesota's Fighting First. I guess “there’s alittle REAL SLIM SHADY in all of us”…finally a new blog savior!..er..maybe not…save me please!
No Afghan will lower himself to such an irrational and insensitive position to fight against his own brothers for the interests of the invaders and lose his life and faith for ... the pleasure of the invaders,"
More than 150 vehicles carrying equipment bound for U.S.-led troops in Afghanistan are blown apart and burned at two terminals in Peshawar, Pakistan. A second attack burned 50 containers....
In one of the largest and most brazen attacks of its kind, suspected Taliban insurgents with heavy weapons attacked two truck stops in northwest Pakistan on Sunday, destroying more than 150 vehicles carrying supplies bound for U.S.-led troops in Afghanistan….
Early today, a second attack on Western supplies was reported in the same area. A security guard said 50 containers had been burned and some vehicles destroyed by rocket fire…..
Nearly a month ago, militants hijacked a convoy of more than a dozen vehicles. Then last week, 22 trucks were torched at a truck stop. The attack was directed against the Pakistan Ordnance Factories, a complex of more than 16 factories with about 20,000 workers. It seemed timed to cause maximum casualties, coming as it did during the afternoon change of shifts.
The "epigenetic damage" done by DU has resulted in many grossly deformed children born in areas such as southern Iraq where tons of DU have contaminated the environment and local population. An untold number of Americans have also been born with severe birth defects as a result of DU contamination.
Many of the cluster bombs don’t detonate and like land mines, they can kill unintended victims years later (as opposed to unintended victims they day of!) As the bombs are scattered and used to a great extent indiscriminately, they aren’t mapped or disarmed after-the-fact. Still cluster bombs continue to kill years after they were used. Even today, decades later, many in Vietnam are still mained by such munitions.

For eight long years Democrats have be screaming for their leaders to grow backbones, stand up, fight back…we’ll guess what? Minnesota's Al Franken is fighting back…asking that every single vote be counted…Finally a Democrat that isn’t backing down, isn’t willing to compromise or settle for anything short of the voter’s wishes…
Al Franken’s lead attorney Elias states “I have no doubt in my mind that Al Franken got more votes in this election than Norm Coleman, and the only question is whether or not Norm Coleman is going to continue to have his lawyers fight” to not have all the votes count.
That’s what this is all about, making sure every vote counts. Finally, someone to stand up and represent us...
- I’m filing this one under mystical creatures like unicorns and fairies…as if he really believed! A fairytale at best, better known as a crock of sh#$ at the end of
- The revolution will not be uploaded in all locations…add Australia to the list already containing China, North Korea, Burma, Turkmenistan, Equatorial Guinea, Libya Eritrea, Cuba, Uzbekistan, Syria, and Belarus.
-On one hand, they employ thousands of workers, pay a living wage, pay taxes
On the other hand, they can’t manage, have no vision, and promise to lay off workers if the US government bails them out.
What to do? I guess the question is not ‘if we bail them out’ but what do we get? Michael Moore sent out a letter regarding his stand…that the government should buy them out instead of bail them out…either way…a nightmare.
In the Washington Post interview, Odetta theorized that humans developed music and dance because of fear, "fear of God, fear that the sun would not come back, many things. I think it developed as a way of worship or to appease something. ... The world hasn't improved, and so there's always something to sing about."
Amen sister...The angels must surely be celebrating that one of their own has come home to sing with the choir.
I couldn't pick between these two so I posted both ‘House of the Rising Son’ and ‘Careless Love’.
