Yakety Yak -- More Spin and Crap
After reading one post after the other for the last few days with the same idiotic blather repeated over and over again in the Virginia blogosphere with phony outrage about some inconsequential contention, "Well, I wonder where Jim Webb stands on this...I wonder where Jim Webb stands on that...well, and how about such and such, where does Jim Webb stand on THAT?
GOP batwings, wonder no more. Here's a little guideline; if Allen thinks something is a swell idea and the White House thinks it's a good idea and John Warner and Chuck Hagel have misgivings, chances are Jim Webb is opposed.
Besides, all Virginians need to know is that Jim Webb opposed Bush's war and Allen continues to blindly support it. Read what Bloomberg.com has to say about the race:
Americans do not support the war; and by the way, they also don't like racists.
Politics in Virginia, once a genteel bastion of the Old South, used to be about the past. This year, it's all about the future.
A hot U.S. Senate race is providing a key test of anti-war sentiment in the mid-term congressional campaign. The battle may indicate how much of a chance Democrats have of capturing control of the Senate in November, and even reshape the 2008 presidential field.
Just to bring a little joy, read what the Falls Church News-Press wrote about the goober and his 'macaca' gaffe. It's the pivotal tip-off to "Allen's Career Ending Moment."
Now, what does Bubba have to say about THAT?!?
[W]e can call it. Last month’s “macaca” remark by Virginia Sen. George Allen was a “career ending moment.” It sometimes happens like that in politics.
A single moment, a single phrase, can sometimes make or break an election or an entire career. Gov. George Romney said he was "brainwashed" by U.S. military officials when he toured Vietnam in the early 1970s, and he became toast.
President Ronald Reagan said, “There you go again,” in a national TV debate seeking a second term, and he became a shoe-in.
We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!
You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.
Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.
There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.
Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
