It Drenches Us in Our Clothes

I can't really say thanks enough to my Dad, Mom, Pete, Jennifer, and Ray for spending the weekend in Baltimore and putting up drywall on my living room that would've taken me weeks to do myself. It looks marvelous, and actually, finally gives a sense of what the place will look like when we're relaxing and finally, finally finished with the whole ordeal. Thank you thank you thank you!

Two Words

Morrissey's ass.

His latest song/video is here. Pretty good; still sounding very Ringleadery.

Bigger version at I haven't been this enraptured since I saw that Coke marketing video at the bottling plant in Hong Kong!

What She Said...

If you can stomach any more of it, here's Coulter backing up her insistence that she'll campaign for Hillary if McCain gets the Republican nomination. Even better than this being an unmistakable edict to "Just Give Up" to the far Right from its High Priestess, this might actually be the end of Anne Coulter altogether. Whether this is a publicity stunt or not, I can't see the bitter-enders getting behind Coulter again after such a shocking act of apostacy, any more than they'd get behind former Republican Arianna Huffington. Hell, maybe Coulter will start up her own populist news site.

Cheer or Vomit, Cheer or Vomit...?

In my weeks and weeks of being strung out on the sweet crack of election politics, this is by far the most disturbing (and possibly edifying) thing I've seen. BY FAR!

Either way, if this truly is how much reviled McCain is among the off-the-map right, this bodes VERY well for the Dems' chances in November. I've known a few liberals that have sworn off Hillary, and vow to take their vote elsewhere if she's the candidate (and perhaps feed Nader's ego yet again), but not with this degree of vitriol. If it's even possible for Anne Freakin' Coulter to squeeze these words out from between those thin lips of hers, then McCain is doomed.

Update: Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks web TV show brought this up possibility: Coulter is just trying to grab headlines by saying something outrageous. And he just might have a point.
