  • what evil fucking nazi experiment brought us the so-called “music” on tech support? i’m on my third time through the overamplified tape #
  • first tech support song – one of the tunes rejected from the young guns soundtrack #
  • second tech support song – a kind of soft-shoe jig that made michael flatly drive a knitting needle through his ears #
  • econd tech support song – addendum – anyone who hears this song is robbed of their sense of whimsy #
  • third tech support song – (plays for only 15 secs) the kind of song jerry garcia would write when NOT on drugs #
  • fourth tech support song – the song that killed the gyspy kings – this, too, is only 15 secs #
  • fifth tech support song – chariots of fire meets shaft at the mall of america #

  • john “crap sandwich” boehner closes out for the ‘licans #
  • i’m thinking congress is more scared about losing their jobs (and, thereby, their houses) than anything else in this bailout #

In Which I Invite You To Complete McCain’s Sentence

September 29th, 2008 2 comments

I’m still going through the debate for fun audio and stumbled across McCain stumbling across a potentially poor choice of words.  It’s during the funding portion of the show.  McCain tells Leher (since he won’t talk to Obama) that he wants to make sure that the healthcare system isn’t turned over to the Federal government (as opposed to the banking industry, I guess).  He goes onto say

I want the families to make the decision between themselves and their dece- and their, and their doctors.

Now, maybe it’s wishful thinking but doesn’t it sound like he’s about to say “and their deceased”?  Let me know if you hear something different, but it sounds like someone’s thinking a little too much about death for my liking.

Between them and their dece-

In Which McCain Is Less Lucid Than I Thought

September 29th, 2008 No comments

What Is McCain Saying?

In the first debate, McCain said “this isn’t the beginning of the end of this crisis, this is the end of the beginning if we come out with a package that will keep these institutions stable…”  [Emphasis mine] Um.  John?  That’s not very comforting to talk about the end of the beginning of the crisis.  That just means that there’s more crisis to come.  It truly IS comforting to talk about the beginning of the END of the crisis since that means the crisis is almost over and republicans can find a new way to fuck over the middle class.

After that little nugget he seems to imply that the way to fix the crisis is to fix the economy and become oil-independent.  GREAT!  That’s the EASY part!

*sigh*
