O. M. F. G.

I'm so depressed right now.

Thank you Simon Cowell, you fucking turd, for American Idolizing our country to death. And making her think it's cute.

I'm sorry. I just can't stop swearing right now. Back later.

LATER: Okay. I feel better now. Love the Baby Boomer comment:



  1. Jiminy Cricket! I'm totally linking this in the connect today. Good find.

    Please excuse me if this comment seems tangential (I have a dial-up connection and so can't watch the videos) - but although American Idol is an important part of contemporary American culture, the process has been underway for quite a while - Neil Postman's Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business was published in 1985.

    Hillary's way of balancing her desires for truth, justice, unselfish love, practical politics, and personal power has been developing for a long time too -

    Quoting a George Harrison lyric

    I don't know how you were diverted
    You were perverted too

    While there's life, there's hope, they used to say - but my hope is that we get a chance to vote for someone else (my first choice - as the button I got at buzzflash.com puts it - RE-ELECT GORE 2008)

    mistah charley, ph.d.

  3. Oh no Charley "Amusing ourselves to death" is right on target, topic, and proves what I've said all along:

    I've got the best readers/commenters in the blogosphere.

    The more I hear from her, the less of her I can stand.

  5. Ha! Hillary has become the poster child for "Why Feminism Doesn't Mean Supporting All Women"

  6. is there no one out there that i could really get excited about, someone with a chance of winning?

    ack! : (

  7. Oh, cut Clinton some slack -- not a lot, but some. The fact is, she does better when she's a little self-deprecating. This is certainly better than having her point out that she doesn't sit at home baking cookies all day.

  8. No. Way. Clinton gets no slack from me. None.

    She was for the war before she was against it. The unquestioning support of Bush's war of empire by front-bench Democrats like her is one of the main reasons why we are in this mess. And NOW she back-pedals? Nope. Sorry. Some of us have functioning memories.

    She panders on abortion, moving away from full abortion rights, just as her husband did on so many issues. She's Bill without the charm.

    And still she's "our" front-runner?

    Nope. No slack. Zilch.

  9. She was on the board of directors for WALMART! Come on, it is impossible to take her seriously!

  10. Look, I'm not a fan of hers, but honestly, if, just hypothetically, she gets the nomination and the Repugs offer us Romney, Guiliani, or any of those other scum, are you saying you still wouldn't vote for her?

  11. The Democrats seem determined to prove my theory that the American Eagle is politically a bird with two right wings, its flightpath a tight downward spiral. Oh, and how can you not have heard - they approved continued funding for Bush's war crimes, free from timetables or benchmarks.

    And Hillary's worried about what her campaign theme song is going to be?!? Give me a break.

    I keep saying it, Hillary is the Iceberg Lettuce of politics.

    Maybe instead of a song, she could use a jingle:

    "Hold the pickle
    Hold the lettuce
    Special orders
    Don't upset us"



  13. tengrain, that's perfect! btw, i'm linking to this post.
