Altmouse Replaces Firedoglake!!!!11!1!1!!

Breaking news! A nobody snubs one and elevates another!

Frankly I have a use for the word "cunt" - my sole use on a woman was to the face of someone who was treating my mom like a slave in a really unbelievable way and I was pretty mad - but the whole FDL weirdness seemed so mean-spirited and gangish that I don't much want to hang out there. I like mean people, but to be so full of it that you say "You don't rate that kind of placement on our blog"... Kind of a turn-off.

As far as the politically correct angle goes, well, I still think calling a woman a bitch is a grievous insult, but as someone funnier than me recently wrote (and who I forgot the name of) maybe cunt is the new bitch and we'll be cunting up a storm in a decade or so.

But ending on a good note...Altmouse's wheel is squeaking again and it seems a lotta folks are supplying grease.

I'm At Peace

Many thanks to John Galt. Really!

Dynasty was Socially Responsible

I love me some soaps about average-looking limeys working dead-end jobs. Turns out the American model is, like, better, according to people who disapprove of things.

What if They WIn?

There are, after all, plenty of people who get called names. On the internet, for instance.

Okay, I Got Challenged

So I'll pick on some poor schlub to do my part.

Meet the New Boss

It's a new era in Washington, that's for sure.

A big thank you to Josh Marshall for being the boss of a useful operation.

Oy Vey

Banning burqas seems like a stupid idea AGAIN. They're pretty obviously a nasty tribal method of oppression, but if someone wants to wear 'em for fetish night they get arrested?

Don't Know Why I Do It But I Do

Every now and then a little trolling just feels right. And if it's over on Pam's site you know you're not going to really harm anyone who isn't already out of their mind.

Meet the New Boss

Jack Murtha on CREW's watch list. Just sayin'.


And sure enough, the Today show (November 15, 2006) pulled out the ABSCAM footage and talked about the Murtha family getting a lot of mileage out of Washington connections.

Should This Make Me Blow Out Snot?

Because it, like, does.

Lileks: Slow Learner

Via Roy, regarding the 2006 elections:

"...if I were an Iraqi I wouldn’t necessarily be booking a spot in the line to the embassy roof, but I’d be checking price and availability." -- James Lileks

GENEVA -- Nearly 100,000 Iraqis are fleeing each month to Syria and Jordan, forcing the United Nations to set aside its goal of helping refugees return home after the U.S.-led invasion, officials said Friday.

That Went Well

Voters deserve a pat on the back.

Three Limericks

From comments here:

There once was a pastor named Ted,
Who was caught with a man in his bed.
He ran to his closet,
To make a deposit,
But came out with Ken Mehlman instead.

A nit-witted pastor called Haggard
Thought Jesus would not bless a laggard
So he went and said yeth
To a pipe full of meth
And ended up totally faggered.

A ripe and lascivious twink
Had Pastor Ted look at his dink
"It's plump thick and red,
And can keep me well-fed.
Enough of this, come sink the pink!"
