My election prediction:

Bush - 290 Electoral College Votes
Kerry - 248 Electoral College Votes

And the election is completely wrapped up within a couple of days.

Update: The final result was Bush 286, Kerry 252, and the election completely wrapped up in a couple of days.

I'm a little inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, he probably set up bin Laden to this thing.

So, let me see if I have this right. Bush, through his proxy, Karl Rove, is all buddy-buddy with bin Ladin; to the point where in Ladin will release a video at Rove's command, on the eve of the election.

Amiri Baraka, your work is done.

More boob bait for the spittle-flecked left.

As for the points, well, I really don't care what happens to enemy combatants in Guantanamo. As long as their cohorts are sawing off the heads of innocents in Iraq, well, sauce for the goose, and all that.

On gay rights, well, I'm not so sure.

Le Monde picks Kerry.

Why? He's the Septemer 10 candidate.

I've never seen a French newspaper deal with the choices this starkly. And still they get it wrong.

So, the New York Times has decided to try another October surprise.

Just like the Bush drunk-driving story from four years ago, this is designed to cut the President off at the knees: one more proof that he's simply not fit.

One problem: it's not true.

I think laws that create protected classes of people are unspeakable abominations.

So, congratulations to the Georgia Supreme Court.

Why vote for Bush?

Why, because this.

I hope the Iraqi Government will eventually sue the UN over this.

Sunday, October 24, 2004

Whew! Well, I'm glad that's settled.

Next: dolphin back in the tuna.

I came out as Silicon Slick P. Smooth.

This guy really hates Republicans. I mean, he HATES Republicans. Of course, as a Democrat, he reserves the right to publish only the most fawning responses to his insance political rants.

It would never occur to him to mention this (incidentally, a popular tactic of fascists in 1930's Germany was breaking up their opponents' speeches), or this.

No, Republicans are all evil, Democrats can do no wrong, Republicans deserve what they get. And if Russ has his way, they'll get it good and hard.

God, what a little fascist prick!

UPDATE: I can't really add anything to this.

OK, fair enough.

From now on we kill 'em all, and let God sort 'em out. No more prisoners.

Complaints from the morgue, etc.

Every time you think Jimmy Carter has plumbed the depths of stupidity, he finds a new and surprising way to eke out a little more.

Carter on the Revolutionary War:

"It was an unnecessary war.

Had the British Parliament been a little more sensitive to the colonial‘s really legitimate complaints and requests the war could have been avoided completely, and of course now we would have been a free country now as is Canada and India and Australia, having gotten our independence in a nonviolent way."

Well kiss my grits! Seen from a retrospective of 200 years, the Revolutionary War wasn't necessary. Well tell me, Jimmy, oh wise one, how would the rest of Western History worked out - absent an American Revolution? How about the patriots who gave blood and treasure to free themselves and eventually build the Arsenal of Democracy? From Jimmy, all we have is an airy wave of the hand.

Carter on the war in Iraq:

"And also when we were so destructive in going into Iraq with tens of thousands of innocent civilians killed and now it‘s still, up until this moment now many months later there is still a great deal of animosity toward American troops. And there is no doubt that American troops‘ presence is stimulating additional violence."

Tens of thousands? I think Jimmy's channeling Noam Chomsky on that one. As for the animosity towards American troops, it's from the dead-end Ba'athists and Jihadists. Most of Iraq is actually peaceful. If you look around right now, you'll see that most of the violence is actually directed against Iraqis - police, national guard, and civilians.

More from Carter on the war in Iraq:

"I don‘t think it‘s ever been proven to be accurate as a premise that you can go into an alien society, win with force of arms, destroying a major portion of that country and killing their people to make them adopt a new form of government and to accept new rulers."

Oh man, where to start!

Very little of the country was destroyed, very few people were killed, and where's the problem with democratically-elected rulers? Oh, the wogs can't handle that sort of thing (airy wave of hand). Oh, and by the way, Jimmy, how about those elections in Venezuela?

Carter on his failed Presidency:

"Well, from the first day the hostages were taken, I had two major and unshakable goals in mind that never changed. One was that we would protect the integrity and interest of my country, and that every hostage would come home safe and free.

And eventually, after 444 days, we achieved on both those goals. We never betrayed the interest of my country, and every hostage came home safe and free."

Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy! You let America twist in the wind, hoisted by an elderly fanatic. You betrayed an ally. You slashed the military and then demanded an impossible mission. The only thing that got the hostages home was Ronald Reagan's eleciton. You pathetic fool!

There's more of the same, but my gag reflex is getting the better of me.

I'm not quite sure what to make of this.

I mean, as a straight male the idea of two men in bed together inspires the "yuck" factor. Probably the Catholic upbringing. Two women? To be honest, I really don't care. A while ago, I might have thought "get it on," (hello Hustler!) but then I saw a little of what's hanging out in Decatur (locally known as "Dick-Hater").

Now, I have the same right as any other male in Georgia: I can marry a woman. And I have. It just so happens I also love women. I mean, I just love women. I'm crazy about my wife, but I just love women in general. I love their softness. The way they always smell good. The way they're always thinking of N things at once. One time I was in Newburyport with my sister. We were in a clothes shop. She pronounced a coat "hideous," and then touched it. I asked why. "To see if it feels as bad as it looks." No guy would ever get beyond the "hideous" bit.

But, I'm straying.

This debate is so slippery. Most people think that the "man marries woman" (and vice versa, as a sop to these PC times) is perfectly acceptable. The gay community is arguing more that "loved one marries loved one."

Fair enough, I guess, but then other things come to mind. I mean, the state - which licenses marriages - has a stake in marriages that will produce children. Voters, taxpayers, soldiers, etc. You get the picture. Absent big changes in technology, men are not going to be having children any time soon. Women have donors. Heterosexual couples have each other, or donors, or whoever might cuckold, I guess.

Then there's me. I've had no children, and don't really expect to have any, yet I'm getting the "breeder" advantage. When you're married, you get those by-law rights of inheritence, people (in the South, anyway) stop looking at you in that odd way they regard all unmarried people (over a certain age), you get some stature from being seen as able to "commit."

Christ! It's enough to make your head spin.

Bottom line: My gut says "no" to gay marriage. Colour me old school. Like this guy.

I hope this turns out OK. My wife once had a room mate who joined CARE, got assigned to Nigeria, and was murdered.

Christ! What a traffic day in Atlanta.

This morning a car burned up at 400 and 285. This afternoon, a
plane crashed near downtown Atlanta. This evening, there was a gigantic crash on 400.

I think that something like 10 people have died on Atlanta roads in the last 72 hours. OK, two were an airplane augering in, but damn!

My local Starbucks has a cellphone recycling program.

Somehow, I prefer this.

Game over! Kerry loses!

Update: OK, so you've been called a French-looking poodle type who'd go on his knees to Jacques Chirac to beg permission to defend America. What do you do? Why, speak French!

Mmmm. About that global warming thing. Never mind.

The EU is a massive fraud, and it'll only get worse.

Interesting article at FOX News.

Money contrast:

"European teams who worked on Bosnian mass graves are not helping because of their concerns that Saddam could face the death penalty, he said."


"He said excavators found the body of a mother still clutching her baby. The infant was shot in the back of the head and the mother in the face."

Ah yes, those Europeans and their concern over human rights.

Hmmmm. Perhaps we should take more care over who we release from Guantanamo.

Yeah, right!


Waiting in line for flu vaccine has now killed more people than the flu itself.

Roger Ebert is in a tremendous snit over a great movie.

Why? Because his sacred cows didn't just get gored, they got turned into hamburger meat.

Run, don't walk, to see "Team America."

It looks like FloriDUH!'s going national.

What a pity.

It's not quite sharks and laser beams, but it's still pretty cool!

On Saturday I picked up a copy of the local fishwrapper, to read over coffee. One headline caught my eye. "AFGHAN ELECTIONS A COMPLETE BALLS UP!!!!!" (subscription required, sorry), or something like that, was what it shrieked. At the time I felt a little depressed: I'd been hoping that America could bring a little hope to that benighted place, and this article made it sound like we weren't going to see that any time soon.

Today I came across this. Sounds to me like an ordinary election: peaceful polling places, carping losers, happy winners. Hey, it could have been DeKalb County in the wake of a loss by Cynthia McKinney!

Jimmy Carter wasn't there to bless the elections. Probably because some Central American despot needed an election stolen.

I'm beginning to get the feeling that if America's sponsoring an election, the indicators of success are a) an international press that declares the election a failure, despite the absence of, oh, say, car bombs, assasinations, and widespread fraud, and b) the absence of Jimmy Carter.

Despite Team Kerry, an American ally is re-elected.

"Team Kerry," you say?

You see, John Kerry dispatched his sister to Australia to try to influence the outcome of the election there.

Why would we want Kerry as President? His coalition of the bribed turns out to have actually be Russia, France, China, Syria, Ukraine and the UN itself. You know, the ones administering the Global Test. You know, the test we need to pass before we can defend ourselves. The French and the Germans have said they'll not participate in Iraq, and Kerry's actively alienating our existing allies.

In other words, under a Kerry Presidency, America would have *no* allies at all.

I can't begin to tell you how excited I am by this.

I've already ordered one from WalMart. It won't ship until December.

Man! The day's coming when I'll be making phone calls via my own PBX from my handheld game system.

If this is real, then it's awesome news!

Dear Jimmy,

Everything you say and write sucks. Please stop.

Wishing you a long (and quiet) old age,

The Management

Hmmm. It appears the French collaborated with the Nazis during WWII, and then went to great lengths to hide the extent of the collaboration.

Sort of says it all, doesn't it?

I mean, the French, Gernams, and Russians were all colluding to help Saddam corrupt the UN oil-for-food program.....whoah.....wait a sec, Kojo Annan (Kofi's son) was also being paid by a contractor who was helping to cover up the corruption, so in reality the head of the UN, along with a couple of members of the Security Council, were making money off the status quo. They had no reason to support America in getting this monster out of power. In fact, they stood to lose from it.

And these are the people John Kerry will go to to get a permission slip to defend America?!?!!

Democrats simply are not responsible enough to be trusted in government.
