If I hear one more necktie-wearing motherfucker on TV wonder when they’re gonna see “Shock and Awe” in action…

Get Your War On

I think I like this guy…

Tonight, for better or worse, America is at war. Tonight, every American, regardless of party, devoutly supports the safety and success of our men and women in the field. Those of us who, over the past 6 months, have expressed deep concerns about this President’s management of the crisis, mistreatment of our allies and misconstruction […]

Jarheads (and others) speak.

Marine writers sound off on the new Iraq war. A For-Profit Marshall Plan. The spoils of war have already been distributed. Kevin Sites Blog A CNN journalist’s personal photoblog of Iraq. Where is Raed? Blog from Baghdad. Also: BBC correspondents blog the war. More voices speaking out about war. Dubya, are you listening? Guess not.

And so it begins.

Anyone having deja vu? Well, I guess the thing about something being “inevitable” is that eventually the thing actually happens. It’s a pisser, isn’t it? Is this a “just war?” Does it matter? Is Saddam such a threat that this was the only option? Are we really going to do anything worthwhile in post-war Iraq […]

Intellectual equipment. Guess who doesn’t have it?

Clearly I should be doing work and not stewing about the war. And yet… Some excerpts from a Salon.com interview with John Brady Kiesling, ex-U.S. diplomat: Why do you think Bush is pursuing this war? I’m frankly at a loss. I think he feels an incredible moral responsibility not to have another 9/11 happen again. […]

Butt, of course!

It has come to my attention that there are an awful lot of posts on Mirandala.org that employ the word “butt.” See for yourself. I offer neither apologies nor explanations.

Beauty is in the eye of the…butt?

Ignore the Tuchus Ruckus: Spring for Some Face Cream Un-fucking-believable. Pardon my French. (or is that Freedom?) Obviously, this is something that could only have been dreamed up in Los Angeles. I mean, La-La Land is where they also engage in “vaginal rejuvenation.” Really, it’s enough to make you want to invest in a pair […]

An experiment in language and interface, Plumb Design’s Visual Thesaurus is both an artistic exploration and a tool to explore, study, and analyze the structure of language.

Bitter much?

An Open Letter to Nader Voters A letter from Charles Taylor of Salon.com to Ralph Nader voters. He’s thanking them for making a difference and electing Bush. Remember? A lot of them were all happy and smug and saying “It’s got to get worse before it’ll get any better.” Um, look around, Nader-ites. Thanks so […]

“Just so you know, we’re ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas…”

Okay, not the best comment to make in front of a crowd of fans hanging onto your every word in London. Although everyone in the arena is presumably a fan, word is going to get out back over the pond that such an unsavory comment was made. But is it worth boycotting The Dixie Chicks? […]
