The Crowd Count

what a disparity as both McLame and Obama both hit Albuquerque on the same day :

The consensus among media covering the McCain event was that his crowd numbered approximately 1,000. A crowd count released during Obama's rally by the University of New Mexico fire marshal tallied 35,000 who entered the gates at the event’s perimeter, and the campaign estimated that another 10,000 to 15,000 stood outside it. (McCain's campaign does not release crowd estimates.)

The Rightard as Junkie

A wonderful psych profile at the link below... to whit:

So what is the last lie a Conservative tells himself? The last lie that the junkies and their suppliers both fight like hell to keep alive and twitching?

That, whether or not their ideology is depraved or deluded, it doesn’t matter because:

“Both side are always equally wrong about everything all the time.”

"Nailin' Paylin"

The Raw Story | Fox concludes Larry Flynt's 'Palin porno' is legal

Good ol' Larry has a new film of "Nailin' Paylin" coming out. Sure to be a Xmas hit ! ( moreso than " American Carol" anyhow eh ?)

In the opening scene, the actress playing Palin flings herself on a tanning-bed repairman, pronouncing, "You're in luck. I fully support off-shore and on-shore drilling. ... God almighty! You are hung like a moose. Now I have to eat ya! ... Pound me until my head is so empty that I can't even remember the name of the one Supreme Court case I actually know!"

Just in time for the Riots ?

These sweet little items will blast an invisible cloud of seering heat into any area, making any bio-life form flee immediately... seems it has a ' bug' though in that it may also possibly FRY the naughty protesters to death Before they have a chance to flee ( i guess the military would consider that a 'feature' not a ' bug" !).
