Maybe I'm Getting Old...

But after watching the rollout of Dick Cheney as the new Spokesman for Evil over the last couple of weeks, I can't help reminiscing over how warm and cuddly Edward Teller was.

Laziest man in politics brings the Zzzzzz

Remember when Fred Thompson was the Great White Hope of the GOP? Yeah, neither do I, but I swear that was the case a few months ago. Well anyway, the lackluster presidential bid of Ol' Scrotum Face faced another setback today with the announcment that Fred won't be on the GOP Primary ballot in Delaware because his campaign failed to turn in... five HUNDRED valid signatures. That's five---zero---zero.

With his organization, Zombie Second-Coming-Of-Reagan would trail behind grassroots political dynamo Jennifer Gail.

Fear factor

No one could have forseen that the Bushites would play the Terra! Terra! Terra! card for the umpteenth time.

DHS jefe Michael Chertoff says he has a "gut feeling" something big and scary may be coming.

Dammit, man! You were warned about those jalapenos!

Who's suffering now?

You know, I really try to feel some sympathy for Laura Bush. Married to the world's most famous idiot, two out-of-control children from hell, and the fashion sense of a Ukrainian potato farmer, she just pops her Xanex and smiles like a good mafia wife. And then she pulls shit like this.

As the shade of Eva Braun tells her girlfriends in Hell, "Ja, und der shelling at der end BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! gave mein poor Adolf such headaches!"

Republican Dirty Tricks in Travis County

OK. So, most of y'all know that I work part time for the county elections division. Tonight, one of our trainees let us know that they'd been invited by the Republican Party to a "special training" for election judges. The Republicans are holding a training to instruct their judges how to pre-screen voters. There's only one reason, that I can think of, to prevent or discourage people from voting.

Here's what's happened today...spread the word as far as you can reach...

Well, my friend actually attended the secret election judge training at Republican HQ today. He recorded the whole thing. He's given it to Travis County, the Secretary of State, the Democratic party, the ACLU, and is awaiting a call from Keith Obermann from MSNBC.

In the secret Republican training, the "trainer" suggested that both Provisional Balloting and Failsafe Voting were actually the invention of our County Clerk/Democrats to mess up the voting process for Republican voters. Why is this sinister? ---The County Clerk/Democrats did not invent procedures to harm Republican voters in Travis County. In fact, provisional voting was created as a result of the Helping Americans Vote Act. It's a federal policy, not local. Further, Failsaife Voting is a procudure created by the Secretary of State of Texas...a Republican. The "Trainer" is giving local judges false information in an attempt to politicize the election process and the county clerk. He is fanning the flames creating an atmosphere wherein changing the rules of an eleciton on the fly would be considered a reasonable act given how poorly the local elections are run.

Get it??

Politicizing the election at a local level by blaming local officials for unpopular laws and procedures created by the federal government (Republican Run) and the Secretary of State of Texas (Republican).

Beyond that, the training materials they were using had several procedures outlined incorrectly. For example, you are allowed to bring outside material into the polling place as a reference. ...According to these Republicans, you cannot. There were others, but they are of a very technical nature.

Here's what you need to know:

You do NOT have to have a photo ID to vote. You can use a voter registration card, green card, passport, Sam's card (w/ photo), work badge, printed check from govt. entitiy, bank statement, utility bill, any official government communicaiton to you on letterhead with your name and address. Further, you do not have to have a current license or voter registration card. You can use an out of date piece of ID.

Don't be fooled!!!

Announcing the official Lamar Smith head Urinal Insert

We here at McBlogger are all the time looking for that perfect thing that says, "Gee. I really like you" or "Sorry I got drunk and puked all over your new floor". Usually we just send booze with a note scribbled on the receipt. We're large like that.

We're also looking for things that really show our feelings for some of our beloved electeds, specifically the Republicans who've made life such a treat for poor kids and the elderly over the last six years. The easiest way would be to pay them back in kind. We thought about cutting back on their benefits, but that's just mean (have you seen what a State Rep makes? Cuting that is like kicking a puppy). We thought (read:drank) long and hard and then McSleaze had it! They've been pissing on us for years; Let's piss on them!

So, we offer you the first in a long line of Urinal Inserts, the Lamar Smith head Urinal Insert.

Lamar's a great fella, truly a pal to his constituents. Unless he's cutting their Social Security or making it easier for companies to weasel out of their pension obligations. At that point, he's dropped trou and with peepee in hand is hosing them. The average constituent has no way to level the playing field and give Lamar the golden shower he so richly deserves (seriously, when he started apologizing for DeLay it was only a matter of time until I did something like this).

Until now!

Ideas for placement? Just one so far (I did mention we were drinking last night, right?) and here it is

Just a note of warning... if you're printing this on an inkjet make sure you use a color fast ink. Please try to use stock that will survive more than one patron. Other than that, print them out and enjoy! Bonus points if I see and include one of your placements in an installment of SSSSS.
