Alaskans Smell Like Salmon…

This startling revelation from best-selling author, newly-minted millionaire and Facebook blogger Sarah Palin, who vividly relates to Faux News anchor Greta Van Susteren her two monumental experiences standing in line for celebrity book-signings by literary rock-stars Herschel Walker and Ivana Trump.

Feel free to create your own punchlines… These days, with regards to Palin, I’m just speechless.

Update: But wait, there’s more! Oh, good grief… there’s always more.

This may sound kind of snobbish, but the dropped g’s really send me up the wall. Is it really necessary to say “puttin” as opposed to “putting” and so on?

Cloture Reform

Long overdue and much needed. Along with his co-sponsorship of Ron Paul’s bill to audit the Federal Reserve (HR 1207 and S 604), this seems like another winning issue for Grayson.

Could we get a few more Dems like him with verifiable backbones to replace those cowardly, interminably waffling “blue dog” jerkoffs like Kent Conrad, Blanche Lincoln and Mary Landrieu?

And looking at this from a Canadian perspective, how do you think it would play here if our upper chamber required some arbitrary “supermajority” to pass bills into legislation that were presented to them by the House of Commons?

Happy Thanksgiving!

To all my American friends. Especially those presently in transit to their dreaded fam-damnly gatherings.

And remember… religion, politics and alcohol don’t mix well.

Discipline

Brilliant video interpretation of a classic King Crimson song.

There’s actually a long and convoluted back-story to this relating to the subversive theories of mechanistic hazard as a means of creative evolution put forward by the English philosopher and polymath J.G. Bennett (via Gurdjieff, Ouspensky and Liebnitz), but I won’t bore you with that.
