Ella has a new kitten named BamBam that is just straight-up surreal. He has an almost human personality, very precocious, very curious, LOVES to be pet and will, without hesitation, step on your head if it helps matters and head butts if proper attention isn't given. And I don't mean one of those nudges cats do or even an urgent "hey you." We're talking billy goat style.

I'd think it was a reincarnated spirit if I believed in such things.

Wrote and arranged my first techno song. Well, it stands alone but it's really a hook for a longer song. This PSP is the bestest thing I have ever bought, hands down.

The life is beginning to even out, find its keel. Thank god.

They found this on someone's lawn in NJ.

Well that's amusing.

You may have seen the news that Conservative Republican Senator David Vitter of Louisianna has turned up as one of DC madame Palfrey's clients. Well, his wife is whining about the attention.

On MSNBC's Nightly News podcast, Wendy Vitter said, "Our marriage is stronger every day but for our children -- and now I'm going to speak to you as a mother and I hope you will understand -- it's been terribly hard to have the media parked on our front law and following us every day and yesterday the media was camped at our church."

Well Wendy, speaking as a citizen -- and I hope YOU will understand -- your husband is a politician. This means his private life is wide open to public scrutiny and when he is found to have frequented a brothel, while legislating under the guise of "family values" in particular, well ...uh ...tough shit.

Mrs. Vittner, if you didn't want the media attention and you didn't want your kids to endure the scrutiny that's openly and clearly stated in the job description, scrutiny essential to a functioning democracy, then perhaps you shouldn't have married a Senator who likes to stick his married dick in hookers.

Wendy, remember how your kids would do something wrong, you'd ground them and they'd get mad at you? Like the rest of us, you probably reminded them it was their own actions that caused the punishment, not you? Now would be a good time to remember that truism and come to grips with the fact that the only person responsible for your familiy's misery is Senator Vitter, your husband.

I'm not saying his actions are your responsibility but you don't get to bitch about the fallout.

MSNBC drones on:

And with a good deal of sadness in her voice Wendy Vitter said in most families this would have been handled completely privately but she lamented in the politics of today virtually nothing is private.

True but but "most families" don't write our laws or, in the case of your husband, legislate morality while proclaiming "marriage is truly the most fundamental social institution in human history."

Suck it up, buttercup. Life is hard. Wear a fucking helmet.

And speaking of the asshole Senator currently using his family as a shield, two hours after being contacted by a representative from Hustler about his phone number being found in the madame's black book, Senator Vitter released a press statement.

Well he didn't fucking write it in those two hours, it was prepared in advance. Which means if he never received the call, he never would have come clean. That's not "sorry," that's "sorry I got caught."

Sen. Vitter was perfectly content to lie to his entire constituency to save his own skin.

Zero sympathy. None.

On another political front, Harry Reid is going to continue the Senate session overnight in order to force a vote on Iraq and put Republicans on the record. calls this "political theater," comparing it to "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" because the effort is unlikely to to garner the 60 votes necessary to force cloture.

Which is kind of funny since I've never seen call Bush's idiotic "troop surge" "political theater" since it has zero chance of succeeding.

One of these results in a loss of sleep and the other massive loss of American lives but hey, who's counting?

I reminded of a quote by Pulitzer, something about a servile press creating citizens as craven as itself. Or something.

In his defense, Virginia Senator John Warner says he cannot "support a binding timetable for withdrawal because it would usurp the president's constitutional power as commander in chief."

Hey, news flash for you, asshole, THAT'S YOUR FUCKING JOB.

I'm taking an indefinite hiatus from everyone.

If there is a real need, I can be reached either at work or home by phone.

"The prescription drugs allegedly found in Al Gore III's possession Wednesday are favorites among young people, according to drug abuse experts, who say prescription drugs may soon overtake street drugs in popularity. Some young people perceive that prescription drugs are safer than street drugs, experts say. "I wouldn't be surprised if right now at this point in time, there are more kids abusing prescription drugs than abusing marijuana," said Joseph A. Califano Jr., chairman and president of CASA, the National Center on Alcohol and Substance Abuse at Columbia University.

That's what you get for twenty five years of claiming cannabis is just as bad as heroin. Now you're surprised that some teenager four years into discovering masturbation smokes a joint, realizes its harmless and thinks "maybe railing oxy isn't so bad either?"


And stop acting surprised when they act logically in response to those lies.

The only way Olbermann could have been more flagrant was if he walked up to 1600 and flipped the chimp a double-deuce.

If you click on just one link from my blog this year, this should be it.

And just so I'm not captain bringdown, here, look at this.

"Actually, ma'am, we sh*t ourselves."

     • A pilot -- shot down and hot evaced under fire on the wing of an Apache going 120mph and no helmet -- replying to a CNN's reporters question on what military training instincts kicked in while his aircraft avionics, instrumentation and control surface was being liberally perforated by two fixed heavy machine gun positions and small arms fire (paraphrased)

I'm not making fun of these guys at all. I think it takes a lot of courage for someone in the military to admit blind fear on CNN.

Seriously, listen to these guys. "This is my first tour, ma'am, and I ain't never been shot at before today."

Yipes. That's a fine-how-do-you-do...

So anyway, there is a local skunk that makes the rounds, minds its own business and doesn't spray such that some locals don't even know it exists. I know the skunk exists because I've seen it myself.

Well today there was this little baby skunk walking the same path. And I didn't have my camera. *wince

Oh, almost forgot; don't do what Donny Don't does.
