Nobody expects the

Spanish Inquisition!!!

So saeth Monty Python!

Paul Krugman, the noted economist, sees a lead in with our economy here:

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. Fear and negative equity … The two things we have to fear are fear itself and negative equity, and the depleted capital of financial institutions … Amongst the things we have to fear are fear itself, negative equity, and the depleted capital of financial institutions.

Hey, the world seems to be going to Hell in a Handbasket what with the financial world shaking at its roots and in its boots, and the right-wing political world going insane (note their presidential pick) and bizarrely corrupt (note their VP pick), in fact, it’s so crazy everybody might just as well start wearing purple! In fact, Gogol Bordello already advised this some time ago:

I know, I’ve already posted this before. But the appropriateness of it seems to keep coming up.

Oh, and incidentally, Debi in Hawaii has spotted a person wearing purple now. I think it’s catching on fast!

Sometimes a random internet message forwarded via email can be quite good. Often not, of course, many consist of right-wing propaganda, but I think this one, sent to me by a friend, is real fun.

I’m a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight…..

* If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you’re “exotic, different.”

* Grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers, a quintessential American story.

* If your name is Barack you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.

* Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you’re a maverick.

* Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.

* Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you’re well grounded.

* If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate’s Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran’s Affairs committees, you don’t have any real leadership experience.

* If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you’re qualified to become the country’s second highest ranking executive.

* If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you’re not a real Christian.

* If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you’re a Christian.

* If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

* If , while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state’s school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant , you’re very responsible.

* If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family’s values don’t represent America’s.

* If you’re husband is nicknamed “First Dude”, with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn’t register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

OK, much clearer now!

Fighting Back!

Brian Donohue posts a video, Barack On Target, which shows Barack Obama’s speech yesterday in which he fights back with words like the following: I don’t care what they say about me but I love this country too much to let them take over another election with lies and phony outrage and Swift-boat politics. Enough is enough!

In another post of Brian’s, John “I’m Coming in My Depends” McCain, he provides a link to a great sequence from the Daily Show in which Jon Stuart really rips into McCain’s performances at the Republican National Convention and elsewhere. Well worth watching!

I got a kick out of NYT Columnist, Gail Collins’, put down of McCain’s selection of Sarah Palin in her Op-Ed this morning, Baked Alaska. If old McCain thinks this selection will immediately scoop up a bunch of disenchanted Hillary supporters, he may be in for a surprise. Of course, the MSM will be sure to find such people and interview them, thus making sure the world gets the impression there are tons of these disgruntled people hanging around just waiting for their chance to vote McCain. The MSM’s still in love with the so-called maverick and will quickly (already have) label Palin as yet another lovable maverick. But Collins has some good arguments for why women in general might not be flocking to this new Republican ticket, and her closing line, referring to that famous put-down of Dan Quayle by Lloyd Benson, is a zinger:

Joe Biden may already be practicing his drop-dead line for the vice-presidential debate: “I know Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton is a friend of mine, and governor, you’re no Hillary Clinton.”

Here’s a red hot 48 second video featuring The Rudist Buddhist and Ill by Instinct giving us the latest breaking news right out of beautiful downtown, Portland, Maine. As the Rudist Buddhist says in closing, “Remember, it’s like Aids. Beware! It’s always there!”

Comic Relief?

Well, I’m getting sick of everything these days, Fox News, Candidates, Ossetia, Olympics, MSM, you-name-it, so, I went and looked up some humor. Here’s what I found under Philosophy Jokes (so, I’m not sick of philosophy yet I guess):

Seen on a restroom wall: “God is dead: Nietzsche.
Nietzsche is dead: God.”

* * * * * * * hey, who ya gonna believe, huh?

Descartes walks into a café and sits down ready to order.
A waiter comes up to him and asks, “Do you need a menu?”
Descartes replies, “I think not,” and he disappears!

* * * * * * *Poof! That’ll teach him to be a dualist.

Overheard in 18th century England: “Did you hear that George
Berkeley died? His girlfriend stopped seeing him.”

* * * * * * *Taking “seeing is believing” too literally?

What did the Buddhist say to the hot dog vender?
“Make me one with everything.”
What did the hot dog vender say when the Buddhist asked for his change?
“Change come from within.”

* * * * * * *Yeah, try to find it!

Did you hear about the Buddhist who spilled his coffee while driving to work?
He had bad kar-mug.

McCain vs McCain

Hey, old Barack is not too shabby when it comes to poking fun and turning a thing around. Get this speech of his in which he sort of shoves the tire gauge back into McCain’s mouth. Pretty funny!
