Yeah, that and other stuff.
I got a spam billet-doux from the HuffPo folks, state of the art for modern muckraking.
I scan everything, though, to keep in touch. Never know what you might come across. This is a good example.
Speaking of the party blogs, Thom Hartmann brought this up last week on his show... What's the deal with the upside-down stars on the official GOP logo? I'm not making this up. The three stars on the official logo are upside-down. I thought upside-down stars signified, amongst other things, Satanism. At least that's what my Mom told me when I was 13-years-old and wanted to buy Motley Crue's "Shout At The Devil" album. From Carl Teichrib's Pentacles and Pentagrams:
"Going deeper yet, the upside-down star/pentagram has long been recognized as the symbol of Satan. Anton LaVey, author of the Satanic Bible and The Satanic Rituals, lavishly used this symbol in his ceremonies and rituals -- most often depicted as the 'goat's head.'"
There's a great example of the upside-down star logo on the GOP En Espanol site.Wait -- what? The GOP has a website in Spanish? I thought they wanted English as our national language.
So let's get this straight. Right-side-up stars signify the American flag and the forces of good; the upside-down star signifies Satan, Motley Crue, the GOP, and a goat's head; and the upside-down star with two humps on top signifies the forces of Bam Margera. Got it. Let's move on.
Lots more, opening with this. (Actually, I'm getting things out of order, but after scanning that's how I recalled them...according to what most caught my attention...)
I just can't get enough of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's dead, bloated face which predictably kicked off the Meet the Press opening montage. One question here: why did the government and the right-wing have such an issue with the Abu Ghraib photos, but this one gets the Thomas Kinkade treatment -- enlarged and tastefully mounted in a decorative oak frame and aired around the clock? It's worth noting that the House passed a law this week calling for a $325,000 fine for anyone who says "shit" on television. Bloated corpse face everywhere, good. The word "shit," bad. God bless America.
Pretty good point, if you ask me. Unfortunately, nothing new in Washington.
Love that Kinkade reference. In this case it strikes exactly the right note. I wanna make some reference to lipstick on a pig but I can't quite get all the parts to fit.
Comments run to another page, but I lost interest...
