Him and Debbie Wasserman Schultz. A month or so ago I wanted to go. Then I decided to skip it, but now I REALLLLLY want to go. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a good get, Chair of the DNC and just a great all-around speaker, her comments about Sarah Palin during the 2008 election were awesome and hit the nail on the head. But, Anthony Weiner? The dude is money every time he opens his mouth. If you don’t know who he is check the video:

I may have to cancel a practice for the youth baseball team that I coach to make the convention. Reschedule I guess. I need to see this.
For some reason I started watching Firefly on Netflix tonight. Why didn’t anyone tell me about this? I can see how I missed the boat on this show, this type of show (science fiction/space fantasy) usually isn’t my thing. I mean, Star Wars is decent but I don’t go all nuts for it. This show is cheesy, like most of the genre. The theme song is absolutely ridiculous, super-cheesy country. Under no circumstances should this show be good, yet it is. The characters are interesting and the actors are decent. Joss Whedon did a great job fleshing out these characters and this world in a very short time. Right from the 2 hour pilot you have a good idea of what is going on and what everyone is about. It is formulaic to a point but different at the same time. At the same time there is comedy, action, and suspense. Just a really good show. Nathan Fillion is the bomb. He was great in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog and on the Nerdist podcast. Unfortunately the show didn’t last long.
“It doesn’t have ANY effect on your life.What do you care? People try to talk about it like it’s a social issue. Like when you see someone stand up on a talk show and say “How am I supposed to explain to my child that two men are getting married?” …. I dunno,it’s your shitty kid, you fuckin’ tell ‘em. Why is that anyone else’s problem? Two guys are in LOVE but they can’t get married because YOU don’t want to talk to your ugly child for fuckin’ five minutes?” -Louis C.K.
Always, always, always warrants a reblog.
reblog for truth
Reblogged it a while back, always worth another turn.
Gov. Scott Walker’s plan to remove UW-Madison from the University of Wisconsin System is dead. On, Wisconsin!
This is good news!
I suspect that there’s a legend in the making — one that will come to dominate the conventional wisdom if the GOP does badly next year — which goes like this: Republicans were too noble. They committed themselves to a serious, well-crafted policy plan, but were oblivious to the political realities.

What I hope regular readers of this blog understand by now is that the Ryan plan is, in fact, a self-serving piece of junk. It doesn’t add up — in fact, it would probably make the deficit bigger not smaller. And far from representing some kind of sacrifice of political interests in the service of the greater good, it’s a right-wing wish-list on steroids: sharp tax cuts for corporations and the rich, savage cuts in aid to the poor, and a gratuitous privatization of Medicare.
One of my all time favorite Onion articles. A classic in pure meanness.
