Sarah Palin, by someone who knows her. And it's not pretty. I really, really don't want this woman a heartbeat away from the top office of this nation.

Obama appearance in Eugene.

20 ft from stage.

Feets are tired.

Secret Service removing ties in unison, as if being ordered by the Borg Queen.

Kids (and by kids I mean college students) around us making us laugh.

Feets are tired. Did I mention?

Going to Onsen next.

This (primarily addressing the president's pardon of Libby) is definitely worth a read today. It crystallized everything that's wrong with the administration of this country.

It is nearly July 4th, Mr. Bush, the commemoration of the moment we Americans decided that rather than live under a King who made up the laws, or erased them, or ignored them—or commuted the sentences of those rightly convicted under them—we would force our independence, and regain our sacred freedoms.

We of this time—and our leaders in Congress, of both parties—must now live up to those standards which echo through our history: Pressure, negotiate, impeach—get you, Mr. Bush, and Mr. Cheney, two men who are now perilous to our Democracy, away from its helm.

Very happy about election results, have a five day weekend ahead of me... yeay.

Taking Nefret to get spayed tomorrow. Rowan and Arwen are SO not happy about the fact that all of the kibble bowls have been hidden. (No food after 8:30pm for the little one.)

Have quite a few comments to reply to, but the head, she is throbby and achy.

I have the distinct impression I'm preaching to the choir with the Americans on my FL, but


Thank you. </Sister Mary Elephant>

I'm going to pass on this link because I could try to duplicate the eloquence of [ profile] mtgat's post, but I have had a very craptastic day, and would fail miserably.

Rights and Wrongs

I was going to paste in a snippet, but it really must be read in totality. (Hello, Salem Witch Hunt; hello, Inquisition.)

Also, Fox news called Foley a Democrat. He is not. He is a Republican.

"Catastrofuck". My new favourite word. I ♥ Jon Stewart.

Don't let the background of green man faces scare you off of this post about the extreme right's land of make believe.

Well, the man I voted for for Governor squeaked by and won with a very narrow margin. My favourite Representative, Peter DeFazio, won again -- why anyone thinks of running against him is beyond me. (Not to sound like a total rah-rah, but this is seriously one great guy. For example, when Congress voted to give themselves raises, he not only voted no (feeling it inappropriate to do such a thing during a recession), but he then used the difference between the 'old' salary and the 'new' salary to establish a scholarship fund. It's so cool to have a Rep that really truly is a public servant.)

Depressing political blather and my evil plan )

In happier news, I received an early birthday prezzie from a friend of mine, the newest Nick Bantock book, Alexandria. Signed with a personalization no less, and more than just my name. The poor man must think I have a legion of spies. Muahahahahaha!
