Scandals, Politics, and a Note on Real Economic Stimulus
WHAT?! She and Todd were both coke heads?! She even snorted nose candy on an overturned 55-gallon fuel drum?!
No, this whole story just can't be true. No, it can't; but watch how many interviews she isn't going to do for fear someone will bring up the accusations. Bye-bye, viable GOP candidate Sarah. (Okay, she never planned to run for the White House. That was a Sarah Playbook standard to make money off suckers. The point is, if she pretends she's serious about a run, her most caustic critics can pretend they're serious about it, too.)
Now, let's find some hard evidence to buttress the unsupported rumors that Rick Perry has drilled his share of Texas T (that's "T" as in "Trollop").
Better yet, let's see someone have the guts to revive that old scandal from a few years ago about Michele Bachmann and another Congressman on the Financial Services Committee. That one was delicious. (I know, I know, "delicious" is applicable as long as the bag stays firmly on for the obligatory defloration scene, where Ms. Michele coos, "Why didn't my husband ever want to do this?" Inevitably, awkward crickets chirp from the Larry Craig Honorary Bathroom Stalls at the local Young Republicans Club.)
We might even hear a few words about Barry and that little tart who got sent to the islands to keep her away from the press (and, of course, Barry's wife, who doesn't strike the astute observer as being a vegetarian when it comes to young ladies making unlady-like moves on the Scrawny One).
Please, please let this be a fun presidential campaign season. America needs something more worthwhile than quantitative easing to get back on its feet.

No, that's not funny. It's vomit bait. And no, it's not just one "rogue" employee's bad idea of a joke. It is exemplary of a pervasive mentality of a government that has no self-control and no idependent judiciary branch interested in or even capable of smiting its ever-increasing invasiveness in the name of this or that law enforcement demand.
This is what has come of our "war on terror." It is also what has become of our government whose thugs protect "the Homeland." It is also what has become of those who let their children go on airplanes. Sooner than you think, it will be what has become of those whose children go to school. Subjugation works this way. I wrote about it in my article, "Forced Nudity as Subjugation." That piece was not an exercise in hypothetical abstractions.
If we just throw up our hands, saying, "I can't do anything about this," then we have no one to blame but ourselves: the terrorists have won.
As much as it might offend those whose groveling fear would drive them to trade even their own children for a modicum of false security, those terrorists would be both the foreign and the domestic sickos. The government servants in the homeland version really do hate our freedom, at least the part that has anything to do with some fanciful right to privacy.
GOP Hate Machine Cranks It Up
With thanks to the Atlantic for getting the word out on this latest, vile trash from the Republicans, I offer this fabulously sexist, droolingly misogynistic advertisement produced and published by the Minnesota GOP. Enjoy the kicky music and the altogether tasty photos featured in the first half of the show. At 2:54 into the video, the real fun begins.
(NOTE: The copy of the video I published here last night was pulled by YouTube, ostensibly for copyright infringement, so I located another, identical version that has survived since last April on YouTube.)
Rock on, all you progressive, Democrat, liberal, and otherwise ugly women out there. This video is really about you.
It seems that the extremists who now run the Republican Party want a Photoshop war. Dark Wraith Publishing is more than happy to take that declaration of war and run with it.
Stay tuned for a series of posts here at The Dark Wraith Forums and Big Brass Blog that will constitute my turn at demeaning, degrading, insulting, nasty, harsh, hurtful, downright uncharitable imagery of the luminary loonies of the Party of Hate, otherwise known in polite circles as the GOP.
John Edwards, Man Slut
Edwards, a former United States Senator from North Carolina, had previously characterized as "false" the allegations that he had engaged in an extramarital relationship with Hunter.
First reported last year, rumors of Edwards' extramarital affair were sourced to allies at the National Enquirer of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Edwards denied the allegations and his staff removed all references to Hunter from the his campaign Website. More rumors surfaced several weeks ago when the National Enquirer reported that Edwards and Hunter had been seen together at the Beverly Hilton, adding further fuel to stories that Edwards is the father of Rielle Hunter's illegitimate child, speculation that was disputed by Edwards' long-time friend, Andrew Young, who claimed the child was his.
John Edwards' campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination came to an end earlier this year after lackluster showings in early primaries. Prior to stepping away from the campaign trail, he and his wife, Elizabeth, had appeared together at an outdoor press conference to disclose that her breast cancer, which had been in remission since surgery in 2004, had returned in the form of what doctors believed were metastatic cancerous masses in bone and lung tissue.
John and Elizabeth Edwards have three children, Jack, age 7, Emma Claire, age 9, and, Cate, who currently attends Harvard Law School. A fourth child, Wade, was killed in a car accident in 1996.
No official statement has been issued by Elizabeth Edwards concerning her husband's admission of infidelity.
