  1. I have a bit about why predictions of sea level rise vary in climate change reports.

    [Nader] can’t possibly still be running on that basis?!

    Sure he can; I think the crux of his argument is that the Democratic Party and the Republican Party are both beholden to corporate interests, and that he would not be.

    Personally, I lost hope for Nader when he apparently believed that he would appeal to Republican voters in 2004.

    Of course, it could also have something to do with the signature-gathering guy I saw who was petitioning to get Nader on the ballot in Oregon with the pithy slogan “If you don’t want to see John Kerry as President, sign this petition”.

  4. Ted wrote this quick one over the weekend. He wants a blogswarm to end the Iraq distraction:

    It’s Afghanistan, Stupid!

    Swarm away!

  5. Bradley discusses the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund some more, and the comments have become a discussion about pesnises, and I made a suggestion to Governor Blanco of Louisiana, should David Ritter resign.

  6. I’m looking at health care for a change.

  7. Conservatives worry about the fate of the white sucker fish, and wonder why environmentalists don’t care. Read through to the end for the sucker fish part, and the plot twist.

    Homosexual predators, 1950s style.

    About the crackpot in Pam’s article:

    I’m listening to the audiobook for Sarah Vowell’s “Assassination Vacation”; specifically, the section about Garfield’s assassin, Charles Gateau. (This book is great; and Jon Stewart voices President Garfield in the audiobook.)

    According to Vowell, Gateau was similarly deranged. He claimed to kill Garfield for “betraying” the Republicans that put him into office, and that he was “chosen by God” to do it. When the prosecution asked him about that pesky Commandment about “Thou shalt not kill”, Gateau claimed that God exempted him from it!

    He wrote a short play while awaiting execution where the Almighty condemns the judge, President Chester Arthur (Garfield’s former vice-president) to Hell for executing Gateau, and condemns the American people as “God destroyed the Jewish nation” for allowing Gateau to dis. (I’m paraphrasing.)

    This is a guy who, according to Vowell’s book, was the only guy living in a utopian “Bible Communist” free-love community who couldn’t get laid…

  9. Just a short post today wondering why my two Senators from Arkansas, Pryor and Lincoln, have failed to co-sponsor the Habeas Corpus Restoration Act of 2007. After all, they are nominally Democrats.

  10. NameChanged

    I opine about Pure Fashion and it’s hypocrisy.

  11. The Cleavage on the Bus Goes Bounce, Bounce, Bounce or Female Anatomy: Weapon of Mass-transit Destruction

    OK that Anal one over at Neddies is hilarious. Of course now I won’t be able to drive anywhere without giggling and hopefully not wrecking the car.

  13. Without being invited, I’m blogwhoring Sex Calumny. You can read about the site mission here, but the upshot is: people love talking about sex, and people have tons of questions about sex, so wouldn’t it be nice to have a safe place to talk about sex without the restriction of politeness, and to have your questions answered by people who’ve done some damn research, and who believe in more than one possible answer.

    And I’m whoring the site here because I think the writing is progressive and eloquent, and the site could use some more progressive and eloquent writers.
