That cartoon’s not operable any more what with Nancy Smash calling the house back.
@MikeJ: “with Nancy Smash calling the house back.” Yeah, that was cool, wasn’t it? Has the whining commenced yet?
NANCY SMASH! So glad that my single contribution to the Internet still lives on.
I sent this to JC the other day thinking it would tickle his JRT fetish, but it was either ignored or deemed unworthy now that it’s made it to HuffPo; nonetheless this story really must be read. A terrier chewed off his owner’s toe that was rotten from diabetes — while he was passed out drunk. Such persistent little f*ckers.
Will Favre ever just go away?
For someone who loves the game and plays it the right way and all that other bullshit sportscasters love saying about him, he’ll do anything to get out of showing up for training camp.
Yes, we should be playing up the fact that Speaker Pelosi has called the House back into session in order to pass legislation to ensure that 140,000 teachers won’t have to be laid off and to help states keep their Medicaid programs afloat. This is what we get when we put the adults in charge – real efforts to address the real problems facing average Americans – rather than the crap that the Republican’s whine about all day.
We need to state this message loud and clear – that the Democrats are making real progress in helping average Americans, and that they can do even more if they are given larger majorities in the Senate and House in November.
I hope Toles didn’t throw his back out what with all the heavy intellectual lifting it took to come up with that cartoon.
I mean, fuck.
That was genius! I’ll miss seeing her order the House around if the Dems lose it in November.

I have some good news. I found out today that I’ll continue getting paid the Gi Bill through the break between summer and fall quarters, yeah for being able to survive!
Also, about to buy a new computer in a couple of hours, plus an iPod Shuffle for a friends b-day. Go team Ubuntu!
I hate all the pet pictures, so I thought I would throw this one down and defeat all yer lame-o’s:

@Loneoak: You do understand that as soon as the stay is lifted in CA I am forcing you to commie homo marry me for that, right?
It’s in the legislation, we have no choice.
A little Dog Blogging with Charlie might sooth the savage beast in us.
Applesauce is ok, if yer a baby.
@jeffreyw: If I was anywhere near that shelter I’d be putting lard in my hair for an Alfalfa style cow-lick right now.
@Loneoak: Ah, Grand Rapids — where they consider My Name Is Earl a documentary.
(Says someone who lived for 16 years in the Lansing area, where all the best strip clubs are within walking distance of the state capital. Or so they told me.)
Thanks for the offer, but I’m holding out a anarcho-trans proposal, commie-homo is just too … straight.
@Loneoak: Story of my freakin life.
OMG. Boehner replacing NANCY SMASH. I don’t feel so good.
However. That’s not going to happen.
Considering we as a nation do a better job getting votes for American Idol passed, I say we get rid of Congress and replace it with an online referendum of registered voters. Let us vote our own laws. And at least it’ll get F-CKING DONE.
@Loneoak: my cow-orker has a diabetes service dog. I think he’s adorable.
@Amanda in the South Bay: Good news! Being able to survive is excellent!
@Amanda in the South Bay: w00t!
You mean like the voters got Prop 8 done here in California by voting away their fellow citizens’ civil rights?
Be careful what you wish for.
It’s called negotiating. As soon as the Vikes cough up enough money, he’ll come to camp.
As for this:
anyone got a ‘cluestick?’
Episode Number 3,728,289 of Why I Love Dawgs:
He’s better than he thinks he is. And trust me listen to the whole thing, it really is a powerful work.
I recently saw John’s thread about Ed Schultz. I was going to list as one of the virtues of the “realist/wonk” side that they understand that institutions matter and that you are voting for individuals, not parties. This is not Britain. (However much the opposite way of thinking got us the net gain which is Sheldon Whitehouse). As far as I know where Ed Schultz’s vote matters is for the House(ND-AL is rated “Toss-Up” according to Cook), and the Democrats are doing a far better job of rolling over the Republicans in the House than in the Senate. The 9/11 responders bill got into trouble because it was introduced as a suspension.
