The Obama Speech

It's really easy to criticize something that you haven't bothered to look at. It's the hallmark of the conservative punditry, especially the cobaggerati that hang out with Brent Bozell. So it's really disappointing to see people on my side act like...


I've seen so many comments about that speech where they make assertions that are opposite to what was actually said. It's just so wrong.

Michelle Goldberg? You're being dishonest.
Atrios? You're being dishonest.
Sirota? You're being dishonest.

Elton Beard? Et tu? The only one who gives me any traffic?

Thanks everyone for flaunting every damn stereotype the idiots on the right have about our side. And just because someone says what you want to hear, that doesn't make it actually correct. Obama's not buying into the GOP talking points. If you read it, you'd know that. You, on the other hand, are.

Now read the speech.

Update: Elton Beard has read the speech, and sees contradictions. I don't see them, but that's life. Looks like I was being a bit unfair to him, though. When the knee starts a-jerkin', the foot might hit one too many asses on the way. And the idea of Obama=Lieberman getting floated around makes me feel the twitch, even if Elton isn't the one spreading it.

Shoplifting plea deal

The inspiration for the current name of this here bloggo, Claude Allen, is trying to plea-bargain his way out of jail time.

Allen, as you might remember, is the Bush administration official who got busted for pulling a refund scam on Hecht's in Maryland, where he'd buy something, go back in, pull the identical thing off the shelf and turn it into the store for a refund. You might also recall that one of the stories floated to explain this scam was that his evil twin did it.

Shorter Jonah Goldberg

We're All Progressives Now

My big government can beat up your big government.

Things I learned today

From Froomkin, the terrorist tracking system that was so super-double-secret that conservatives made more death threats than usual against their enemies when it became known has its own website that is accessible by Google. Some secret.

And Limbaugh's still an asspimple who may be participating in the sex trade in the Caribbean.

Killing Womb Babies Agencies

Now that's some weird-ass syntax.

Shorter Max Boot

Staying the wrong course in Iraq

We need more troops to stay forever in Iraq.

Things I learned today

Executives are paying themselves by raiding employee pension funds. So says the Wall Street Journal.

Ye Gods, but this is cute. Kittens taking their first steps...

Things I learned today

Assrocket thinks it's disgraceful to be a black Congressman, while taking bribes is OK.

Just so long as the bribe taker calls itself conservative, that is.

Oh yeah, Limbaugh should go to jail for a few years for breaking his plea agreement.
