The Public Blogging of Pomosexuality, Homotextuality, Homophobiaphilia, and Drear Theory (aka Career Theory) [aka Gay4Pay]. We also read the Corner and OpJournal so the right buttock will be punished as well.
All comments subject to publication. Or dismissal. Or Both.
The credulous and smarmy response to this ridiculous incident and ludicrous photograph by the Bush leaning blogs is, well, reminiscent of the whimpering credulity that Kerry bloggers display over similar faux outrages perpetrated against their team. Except daddy direst beats the others cold.
The hang-dog misery on the face of the shirt-sleeved Christ with the wide-gage tie, who used his three year old daughter as an ideological tease at a John Edwards campaign stop, is as morally suspect a pose as I've ever gazed upon. And I'm somewhat of an authority on those. I own a mirror, afterall.
Dad does deserve credit for charting new territories in the empire of familial userdom, even if Hegemon's further (and plausible) speculations on the mise-en-scene don't pan out.
* Update: I originally bravo'ed Eschaton. I was so excited by the post on Atrios's page that I skimmed over his attribution of the entire thing to Rising Hegemon.
At the new dollar store in my neighborhood (yaaayyy!) they carry a full line of Egyptian breakfast cereals with colorful, japanimationish, internationally-bland, generically-human, childish figures on the front. There's Sweet Flakes, Choco Pops, Choco Rice, Fruit Loops and others. They fill me with optimism.
Roxy Music's Prairie Rose sounded more perfect than usual when it came blaring unexpectedly out of my Toyota Corolla factory installed booming system today. The blare wasn't unexpected, I was in control of that, but I certainly hadn't foreseen the tune.
Bryan Ferry's son Otis was one of the cool'igans who burst into parliament yesterday in protest of the Laborious ban on fox hunting. Otis has been a tabloid bait in the Uk for several years--rock star dad, semi-strung-out, society-hottie ma. It's a great rags to riches, nags to thoroughbreds story. Bryan's dad was a Durham farmhand turned miner, and now his son is a passionate devotee of the landed sports.
I'm creating a whole portfolio of bogus Texas Air National Guard documents, in Word, Corel, Claris, Appleworks, Abiword, Kword, Open Office, Flwriter, Ted and EZ, detailing the official sanction of the special rules of engagement afforded GWB during his sporadic service.
The memos are fake, and the memories are shaky. The controversy over the true thoughts and actual words of Lt. Col. Jerry Killian (TexANG, expired) circa 1972 boils down to the bare bones of a classic he said, he dead story.
Thanks to hurricane coverage on MSNBC, I now know that the Attorney General of Florida is named Charlie Christ. You'll join me, I'm sure, in hoping that the AG proceeds victoriously up the foodchain of state and national politics.
Charlie Christ is the snow-headed gentleman just left of Job Bush, the squirrel-cheeked gentleman holding the mic, in this sacred portrait. The enraptured woman to the right of Job is, of course, Bunny Magdalene.
Update: Fuk, Fuk, Fuk. MSNBC got it wrong, they misspelled Charlie's name onscreen when they were ID'ing him during his interview. It's really Charlie Crist.
A quite interesting post by Bjorn Staerk about Norwegian reaction to Statoil, the Norwegian energy giant (<--rejected fairy-tale title), being placed on the list of dirty dozen concerns that do business with terrorist regimes led me to look at the list itself.
My prize for making that effort was to learn of this French delight:
Technip Coflexip, one of France's largest engineering and construction companies, is extensively involved in the energy sectors of Iran and Libya. The company's projects in these countries could total as much as $400 million, and possibly more, depending on the status of contracts and letters of intent recently negotiated with Iranian companies.
