A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Anybody Know the Rationale Behind the Forced Conversion to Digital TV? 

What's up with this? Has anyone "followed the money" to see what sort of influence was applied to force this conversion. I certainly don't feel like shelling out any $ for new TV or a conversion box gizmo even with the supposed government issued coupons or vouchers.

You Call This Supporting the Troops? 

From WCSH6.com, Minnesota:

When they came home from Iraq, 2,600 members of the Minnesota National Guard had been deployed longer than any other ground combat unit. The tour lasted 22 months and had been extended as part of President Bush's surge.

Casco Bay Ford 1st Lt. Jon Anderson said he never expected to come home to this: A government refusing to pay education benefits he says he should have earned under the GI bill. "It's pretty much a slap in the face," Anderson said. "I think it was a scheme to save money, personally. I think it was a leadership failure by the senior Washington leadership... once again failing the soldiers."

Anderson's orders, and the orders of 1,161 other Minnesota guard members, were written for 729 days.Had they been written for 730 days, just one day more, the soldiers would receive those benefits to pay for school."Which would be allowing the soldiers an extra $500 to $800 a month," Anderson said.

Repost from June, 2006: Rush Limbaugh's Convenient "Bad Back" 

Now that Rush is back in the news with yet another "drug" story, maybe it's time to re-question the original excuses he used to persuade his followers his addiction could have happened to anyone.

Back in 2003, during a golf tournament, Rush claimed he had no physical limitations. Yet, when he admitted to being hooked on pain killers, he claimed it was because of chronic back pain. So, why would he tell an interviewer he had nothing wrong with him physically since this is a built-in excuse for being a shitty golfer. What is more likely is he's being less than honest about his addiction when he claims it's the result of his bad back.

Pre Round

An interview with:


Q. How did your game go today?

RUSH LIMBAUGH: Well, this is the third day I've played this week, and it was -- this is nothing to write home about. Last four holes, maybe, I played like I'm capable of. But I was doing things today that I haven't done in two years, topping drives and a number of other things.

But it's good to get a round like this out of the system when it doesn't count. Makes the amateur partners feel really good. So it all turned out for the best.

I mean, my attitude is, I'm just grateful to be here. I'm not a golfer. Thank God I don't make my living at it, and I feel very lucky, very privileged just to be able to participate in something like this.

Q. What was the big bother, was it the number of people watching you?

RUSH LIMBAUGH: You know, I've played the Bob Hope three times and the AT&T twice. It wasn't bad. It's just the game is mental. Once you've mastered the physical aspect, not mastered, but 90 percent of the game, all of the other things being equal is mental, and for some reason, I just was not able to execute my swing today.

And I think it had nothing to do with physical characteristics. There's nothing wrong with me. I think it's just for whatever reason, maybe I was tired, I have no idea what it was. And that's the thing that frustrates me about the game, I'll go play well two rounds, come out and do today and not really know why I did poorly. But that's what makes me an amateur.

Why is it that some blogger with Google can come up with this interview and nobody in the MSM ever mentions it?

Read the Inteview For Yourself

Oddly enough, Rush had a convenient cyst or convenient knee injury to keep him out of the draft during Vietnam. Plus, Rush had convenient excuse for carrying Viagra without a prescription upon his return from the Dominican Republic. Anyone notice a pattern?

One might be wise too to note exactly why the Domincan Republic is a preferred destination by some travelers.

Rush Limbaugh: Phony American 

You don't support your country by trying to divide it!

You don't support your country by putting party over country!

Other than shoot off your mouth, what have you done?
