What can I say.*

"An internal trooper investigation had found Mr Wooten guilty of several infractions - using a Taser stun gun on his stepson, drinking on duty, threatening his then father-in-law and shooting a moose without a permit, the Anchorage Daily News reported yesterday."

If they all live in mobile homes, in the South**, this would be a Jerry Springer show.

Here, this will take your mind off the fail that is Palin***:

*I can say a whole lot more, but I'm not voting Republican so I could care less if McCain choose a right-wing, anti-choice creationist with the least amount of experience EVAH as his running mate. The fact that she has a vajay means nothing.

**Don't judge me bitches, I live in a mobile home, in the South.

***Yes, yes Michelle is made of awesome.

Turn Off The Talking Heads

If you are watching the Democratic Convention on one of the cable channels you are not getting the whole story.
Please, I beg of you, turn on PBS or C-SPAN to get your convention coverage without the opinion and spin of others.
Also you will see all the speakers and videos, like this on by Speilburgh on our military:

And this one with President Jimmy Carter on New Orleans and Katrina:

He's Home!

Mr. Kitty, who has had issues since his near death experience, wandered off almost a week ago.
I have been so sad, crying over the weekend and just moping around.
Tonight, I went to lock the front door before I went to bed.
I looked out "just in case" and he just comes wandering up the steps!

I feel very warm and happy right now.

Via a post on Feministing I have just discovered Cake Wrecks where in they make fun of cakes.
Yes, decorated cakes.
"When professional cakes go horribly, hilariously wrong."

This is the kind of shit you cannot make up.

Cakes for cat lovers:
"I think the baker captured that blank look of mortal terror quite well, don't you?"

"I think I saw this outfit modeled on one of Maury Povich's "Who's the Daddy?" episodes."

Living The Vintage Life

Interesting article on the Daily Mail about a few couples in England who live their lives completely in the past.
Who wouldn't want a kitchen like this:

I would LOVE to re-do my house like the one above.
Seriously cool.

I don't even mind that they are housewives who live for the comfort of their hubbies.
That is their beeswax and what was the woman's movement for if not to allow women to make any choice they want?
Except they make the mistake that many do of forgetting that not everything was so good in the good old days.

Remember the good old days?
Without AC? Or computers? Or microwaves? Or chemo? Or polio vaccines?
Remember Jim Crow and "separate but equal".
How about having to get your husband permission to go on birth control?

Life was slower and in someways gentler so I do understand the desire to retreat to a fantasy world, but that is all it is because the world of Andy Griffith and Lucy never really existed.

Color me disappointed....

Of course if John McCain, who fooled around on his wife and then divorced her for a newer, richer model can run for President, I don't see why Edwards can't at least be Attorney General.
