Weekend Musical Interlude and Quail Hunting Dedication

Dedicated to our soldiers, past and present, and all those currently fleeing Dick Cheney's weekend hunting spree in New York.

The Google "Quote of the Day" add-in for today as shown on my "Personalized Start Page" is from Bertrand Russell:

A stupid man's report of what a clever man says can never be accurate, because he unconsciously translates what he hears into something he can understand.

Thursday News: Anyone for Tennis?

RIA Novosti:  Iran unlikely to threaten U.S. territory in next 10 years
"MOSCOW, November 8  - Iran has no capability to build nuclear weapons that could reach U.S. territory within the next seven to 10 years, a Russian military expert said on Thursday."

In the climactic scene of the movie Savage Seven, when all is seemingly lost, the leader of the biker group rolls with his force of two hundred Harley-riders across the desert to rescue the town from the evil-doers, while Cream sings Anyone for tennis.

That's the image being painted by Team Fantasy in the White House, backed up by the flying chimps in Congress: America to the rescue!

Question is, who TF asked them?

Democrats want Katherine Harris drafted for president

Remember old Katherine...give a look see: here

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- If Republicans don't think their presidential candidates are on the conservative extreme of issues important to them, Democrats are reminding them there is another choice: Katherine Harris.

The Florida Democratic Party is launching a parody Web site that will feature videos of Republican presidential candidates' statements on issues like immigration, foreign policy, taxes and others. The idea is if they want someone on the far right on any of those topics, Harris is their candidate.

"It's comparing her to the candidates on the Republican platform - who hates immigrants more, who will fight to reduce the number of children with health insurance, et cetera," said Mark Bubriski, a spokesman for the state party.

Civil Rights Division to "Throw Tanner Under the Bus"

by Publius Revolts

ePluribus Media has learned that the leadership of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division has reversed its July decision and is now signaling its willingness to permit Voting Rights Section Chief John Tanner to testify before Rep. John Conyers (D-MI)’s House Judiciary Committee. Although a Judiciary Committee spokesperson has confirmed the reversal, the final date and time for the testimony have not been finalized. There’s speculation that Tanner in his testimony will assume responsibility for the Georgia Voter ID controversy, leaving Hans von Spakovsky, currently up for confirmation to the Federal Elections Commission, a cleaner resume.
