On The Amazon, The Pax Vobiscum Bite

Tom Smykowski: Well-well look. I already told you: I deal with the god damn customers so the engineers don’t have to.I have people skills; I am good at dealing with people. Can’t you understand that? What the hell is wrong with you people? In light of Amazon’s Jeff Bezos’ purchase of The Washington Post, I’ll just [...]

Loading Up The Clown Car, Gonna Go For A Ride

So.  This morning: …. and, well, why not? I’m so old I remember when Pat Paulsen’s Presidential run was treated like the joke that it was… Also:

Not Fade Away

I’m-a gonna tell you how it’s gonna be – Charles Hardin Holley So anyway… About a week ago I informed my lovely hostess, Jane Hamsher, that I was going to pull the plug on this Popsicle stand (AKA “pulling a billmon” although I have never come close to approaching his genius) because my real life [...]

Grannycidal Eddie Munster/Ol’ Lazy Uncle Joe Monster Truck Rally Tonite!

By: Thursday October 11, 2012 4:25 pm

Even though our heart is not into it (there … I have just lowered expectations) I will be live twitter-twatting the VP debate tonight between Uncle Joe Biden, who is our favoritest uncle of all time because he tells fart jokes at the Thanksgiving table, and zombie-eyed granny-starver Paul Ryan who, we just discovered, is [...]

Debasing The Debates One Twat At A Time

By: Wednesday October 3, 2012 4:19 pm

I will be twitter-twatting tonight’s Presidential debate between (in the Blah Corner) Barack “The Kenyan Usurper” Obama and (in the Whitebread With Mayo Corner) Willard “The Mormon Mangler” Romney. With the help of internet technology-magic (or magyck for you Renaissance Faire freaks) and the FDL IT nerd-elves, we hope to have a twitter feed on [...]

Thursday Night Basset Blogging

Young Master Wembley. And Fenway’s middle third in the background. I will be twitter-twatting the DNC convention on the twitter machine tonight because I have already seen every episode of Law & Order SVU. And, yes, Wembley is getting a mani-pedi this weekend.

Over the weekend I pointed out on the Twitter that the Occupy group, seven to eight hundred strong, that had traveled to Charlotte was parading around the  financial district, each member with a specific grievance  all their own. The obvious absurdity of the march is the efficacy of marching on the mean, to say nothing [...]

All Apologies

By: Friday May 25, 2012 8:24 am

I came home to this last night: …and I’m going to assume that George Tierney also apologized to Sandra Fluke, and from what I can tell of her demeanor I’m going to assume that she graciously accepted it,  but since Twitter has elected to suspend George Tierney’s account  we may never know. Having said that, [...]

Jonah Goldberg and The Amazing Acme Twitter Machine

By: Monday May 14, 2012 2:39 pm

According to internet futurist John Hinderaker, when it comes to Twitter-twatting, conservatives are kicking ass and taking LOL’s: The Left Is Getting Clobbered on Twitter We are in the early stages of the 2012 campaign season, with a lot of battlespace preparation going on.
