Good Night

Politics?  There is another life out there:

Deep Inside the Milky Way

This artist’s impression shows how the Arches star cluster appears from deep inside the hub of our Milky Way Galaxy. Hidden from our direct view, the massive cluster lies 25,000 light-years away [think about that for a minute] and is the densest known gathering of young stars in our galaxy. The illustration is based on infrared observations from Hubble and with ground-based telescopes, which pierced our galaxy’s dusty core and snapped images of the luminous cluster of about 2,000 stars.

Tea Partiers — Pull Thy Head Out of Thy Ass

Tea Partiers, I’m not on your side but I feel for you.  I really do.

Bill Clinton took me for a fool like the Tea Party is taking you for a fool.


You really should start using “the Google” instead of trusting Fox to give you the ah, “facts.”  Fox is on the GOP/corporate/establishment side and they’re playing you for fools:

Next for GOP Leaders: Stopping Palin.

Top Republicans in Washington and in the national GOP establishment say the 2010 campaign highlighted an urgent task that they will begin in earnest as soon as the elections are over: Stop Sarah Palin.

Interviews with advisers to the main 2012 presidential contenders and with other veteran Republican operatives make clear they see themselves on a common, if uncoordinated, mission of halting the momentum and credibility Palin gained with conservative activists by plunging so aggressively into this year’s midterm campaigns.

There is rising expectation among GOP elites that Palin will probably run for president in 2012 and could win the Republican nomination, a prospect many of them regard as a disaster in waiting.

Many of these establishment figures argue in not-for-attribution comments that Palin’s nomination would ensure President Barack Obama’s reelection, as the deficiencies that marked her 2008 debut as a vice presidential nominee — an intensely polarizing political style and often halting and superficial answers when pressed on policy — have shown little sign of abating in the past two years.

“There is a determined, focused establishment effort … to find a candidate we can coalesce around who can beat Sarah Palin,” said one prominent and longtime Washington Republican. “We believe she could get the nomination, but Barack Obama would crush her.”

So yeah, bet everything you’ve got on Fox and the Tea Party and get freakin’ screwed.

They ‘re telling you what they’re going to do to you.  It’s right there.  Don’t be surprised when you’re surprised.

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF

Half of our trick-or-treaters tonight are trick-or-treating for UNICEF.


I did that when I was a kid and I still feel good about it.

Again, Happy Halloween everyone.

Make it about more than candy.


Oh, and speaking of the United Nations’ Children’s Fund, the Republican candidate for governor in Colorado — Dan Maes — thinks that riding a bicycle is a commie UN plot to take over the country.

He’s nuts.

Vote Republican — Kill the Planet

One of the big, big goals the wingers have if they win on Tuesday is to block any legislation having to do with climate change.  They hate all that climate change stuff because corporations might have to spend money modifying their smoke stacks or their drainage systems (for example) and hey, they should be allowed to do whatever the hell they want because they “create jobs.”  (Yeah, like all the jobs they created over the last ten years.)

So yo, people, vote for Republicans so we can have more of this:  The Ten Biggest Cities That Are Running Out of Water:

Orlando, Florida

Atlanta, Georgia

Tucson, Arizona

Las Vegas, Nevada

Ft. Worth, Texas

San Francisco Bay Area

San Antonio, Texas

Phoenix, Arizona

Houston, Texas

Los Angeles, California

Andrew Breitbart, Sign the Petition Asking ABC News Not to Include Him in Their Election Night Coverage

I assume you heard that ABC News hired right wing propagandist Andrew Breitbart to be an “analyst” on Election Day.

Breitbart is the guy who edited and leaked the Shirley Sherrod video and the bogus ACORN pimp video.

If you think news organizations should hold themselves to a higher standard and that it’s wrong for ABC “News” to legitimizing this scumbag, please consider signing the petition at asking ABC not to put him on on Tuesday.
