Let us pray for the wonderful American who passed last week.

A most fitting (and timely) tribute to the Senator is his recent letter sent to the treacherous worm who's sold out on everything George stood for, written for Harper's magazine.

And the convention acceptance speech he made 40 years ago, at 2 o'clock in the morning. Senator McGovern was then immediately sandbagged by Tom "Drunken Loon" Eagleton, the labor and Democratic Party establishment, Dick Nixon's junkies, and the basic depravity of the American people.

Way too good for 1972, even though '72 seems like paradise compared to Obama's corporate murder state. Come home, America. Wherever you are.

Reasons to be Cheerless, Part 3

Defecator of the skank series known as "Girrrrllllzzzzzzzzzzz" has told us why we should all vote for Obie. Come to think of it, he is the Lena Dunham of Presidents, ain't he? Thoroughly corrupt, psychopathically self-regarding, empty as a used Kotex box, and someone who makes the mediocre and narcissistic feel just plain great.

Please, get a barf bag before clicking.

Unbelievable. They had to win three straight elimnation games, all on the road, against Cincinnati. Then three straight elimination games against the defending champion Cardinals. They did. Then swept the Detroit Tigers in the World Series, 4-0.

Kennedy/Khrushchev/Castro during the Missile Crisis.

A trilogy of neat cartoons from the good folks at Armageddon Letters.

G-Men, Past & Present

Indeed. 50 years ago this week. . .

Boo. . . .

But how 'bout this week's comeback against those Reds! Down 0 - 2 heading back to Cincy, they sweep the remaining three games and now take on the defending champion Cards in the NLCS. Just goes to show that having the best catcher in the ballclub's history, and a great rotation, and a decent bullpen can make up for having seven Johnny Lemasters in the line-up. Go Giants!

Being saved, if alive. More to come. . .

The Last Cup

And now, the show is gone. Jerry Seinfeld and top comics new and old, straight to the Net, tiny budget for 10-15 minute eps.

Yet, cancelled. If only Jerry had come up with "CIA Agents in Cars Getting Coffee" instead.

Last guest: Michael Richards. An elegy. (Due to Crackle's new autoplay embed stupidity, forced to provide only the link.)

And, since they mention "The Chicken Roaster". . .

The Drone

Kevin Baker and Jack Hitt of Harper's "Political Asylum," our best campaign reporters, with the best take yet on Obama's dive.


The brilliant rest.

Well. . .

"I wear the chain I forged in life. Link by link." -- Marley's Ghost

If you govern and spiel as a corporate totalitarian, having been elected as a liberatory progressive, who's to be surprised when you get whupped on national TV by a true blue corporate totalitarian?

And he was.

Shocked. The most one-sided POTUS debate I've seen, including Kennedy-Nixon and Reagan-Carter.

Poor Iran.

Best of all, Mister Floyd:
I understand there is some kind of event scheduled for this evening that will feature two known and proven liars mouthing pious rhetoric, brazen falsehoods and scripted zingers in a process carefully crafted by their paid handlers to exclude any substantive examination of genuine issues of vital concern to the citizens whom the two known liars purportedly wish to "serve." I understand this will be followed by an outpouring of fetid gas emitted by a series of third-rate intellects and clueless goobers in various media who will examine the body language and facial expressions of the two proven liars to determine which of the liars might have gained the most political benefit from their lying and zinging and pious posing.The end result of this process will be that one of the two known and proven liars will become the temporary manager of a world-spanning, treasury-bleeding war machine which they will use to kill many innocent people over the next four years while continuing to degrade the lives and liberties of their own citizens on behalf of a brutal, stupid and rapacious elite.

This, we are told, is a very serious event to which very serious people should pay very serious attention. Fortunately, I am an entirely frivolous person, so I will be free to ignore this very serious business. Instead I think I might go out back and throw a few sticks on the fire.
