True…But Strange

Back in the mid ‘80s I spent most of my weekends chilling on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, where I dated one of the daughters of America’s original “Beat” writer, Chandler Brossard. One day, when she was engaged in her casting job for TV’s “Another World” soap opera, I received a phone call from Andy Warhol’s nephew, James, who lived in Queens. It seems James needed a human model for a book cover he was painting, and he thought I could fill the bill. And since my gal was busy tending to the needs of a TV show cast which included a budding juvenile Jane Krakowski, I decided to help him out.

Forty-five minutes later, the L train dropped me in front of James’s industrial-style loft in Queens. He didn’t have any official props, but he equipped me with a mop-bucket helmet, a bathroom-rug cape, and a plastic broom handle to stand in for my ray gun.

You can see the results above, in the appropriately titled, “Nightmare Machine” installment of the Battlestar Galactica chronicles. And thanks to James for visiting me in the trauma hospital, remembering that he had painted this, and offering to send me the original canvas to hang in my home. How’s your life, cousins?

Morning After Open Thread and Hangover Cure Swapshop


And how are we feeling this morning? Never mind. You could have a thumping headache and Mitt Romney for president.

Have an open thread to share those schadenfreudy thrills, late results, and reactions till somebody else who knows how to drive this thing and is feeling less fragile than I am gets it together to put up a post.

Paul Ryan’s Campaign Fund Malarkey

Plus ça deranged

(H/T: Political Carnival)
Kid Malarkey believes in traditional values, and what could be more traditional than a Republican VP candidate with a slush fund? Paul Ryan seems to have given it a novel twist by using his congressional reelection bid as a means to funnel resources to the Romney campaign. The famed budget-slashing Randian whiz kid blew through seventy-five thousand dollars of his House reelection money at the four day Republican National Convention, where he had a total staff of…five. What, besides beer and brats, could the Wisconsin Slasher have bought in Tampa for that amazing amount of money?  Hotel rooms—lots of them, particularly in the Romney campaign’s hotel, where the Ryan House campaign wasn’t staying.

In case the blurring of funds between Kid Malarkey’s house and VP bids doesn’t seem like a big deal, it’s enough for Ryan’s campaign director, Kevin Seifert, to turn into John Lovitz while talking to the Observer’s investigative reporter:

McCain Seethes While Powell Endorses Feckless Guy! Wait Till Walnuts Sees WashPo

Via TPM:

“General Powell, you disappoint us and you have harmed your legacy even further by defending what is clearly the most feckless foreign policy in my lifetime.”

Thus spaketh the Emperor Walnuts, depicted above standing a heartbeat away from noted foreign policy expert Winkerbelle Von Putinspotter.

Curiously, at that very instant, thousands of miles away, in a luxury Dallas condo, another scion of a more accomplished father woke up from a nap, choked up a pretzel, and called, “Laura, git me a Q-tip er somethin—there’s fire ants in mah ears!”

Delicious chewy Washpo endorsement quotes below the fold. Mmmmm. Yummy.

Her Again: Shuck, Jive And Thrive

With those tiresome debates over, it’s a down-to-the-wire race to see which right-wing attention addict (we don’t say “whore” because we has class!) can squeeze the last drops of glory from putting lips together and blowing the longest, loudest dogwhistle their air-sacs can power. In the case of the Tower of Babble, it’s not even a whistle; it’s an airhorn. The ostensible justification for the Half-Been’s rage is CNN CBS’s “scoop” regarding Benghazi, because terrorism abroad is always best met by calling the president a darkie.

CNN CBS’s lame “scoop” puts them in a fine position to challenge the Half-Been and the Bag of Hair to the Miss AW 2012 tiara. The Zales Network turned up two emails to the State Department, executive office, and about a zillion other agencies containing the thunderous information that a local terrorist group Ansar Al-Sharia had claimed responsibility for the attack, and everybody knows that whatever group is first to claim responsibility on Facebook, for attacking something in the Middle East completely obviously Did It. Why did the president not reveal this email in the nanoseconds before Mitt Romney climbed to the top of the ruins with his bullhorn? Niggovernment Coverup!!!

No, I Just Meant God Wants Rape To Have A Happy Ending

Oh! Well, that’s all right, then. Stating that God wants women to go through forced pregnancy after rape isn’t extreme when you think about it, as Richard Mourdock has. After all, God loves life, and every woman’s womb could be stocked with life all the time, if women weren’t so abysmally dedicated to saying when. So will you leftie b*tches just leave the man alone already? Mitt Romney’s still exhausted from distancing himself from Todd Akin, and now he’s going to have to dodge and weave his way around poor Richard. Paul Ryan is going to have to distance himself, too, but at least we know he can do it in record time. Stop martyring poor Richard Mourdock! You’re making Michelle Malkin simply furious!

2012 Presidential Debate Scariest Liveblog Ever: THE UNMITTENING 3

        Baracko Nikto!

They’ll be seated at a table, close enough to breathe in each others’ stress chemicals.  Don’t bet on moderator Bob Schieffer to make the mistake of injecting a fact between Romney’s cascade of prevarications, not unless he wants all of the right-O-sphere to call him fat.

Guardian Liveblog here, and YouTube livestream below the fold. Meme generator here. Because deciding the leader of the free world has come to this. BOO!

Not Your Father’s Republican Party

LIFE magazine has been delving into its archives, and pulled out this feature:

“On the evening of May 20,” begins an article in the June 16, 1941, issue of LIFE magazine, “members of the Young Women’s Republican Club of Milford, Conn., explored the pleasures of tobacco, poker, the strip tease and such other masculine enjoyments as had frequently cost them the evening companionship of husbands, sons and brothers.”

Thus the storied weekly and photographer Nina Leen chronicled the shenanigans that erupted when a group of GOP women got together for an old-fashioned “smoker” (noun: an informal social gathering for men only) on one long, memorable night in southern New England.


You can find 15 more snapshots of the pre-War On Women GOP here. Giggity.

Bay Buchanan, Romnesiac


“Left up to the states?” You misunderstand, substandard sexual deviants—-I might have said “leftover plates.” We have so much crockery at campaign headquarters, because the Governor is so tough on china! I’ll be here all night, tip the veal, and yes, that’s me up there doing a star turn for the window-dressers at GOP Proud.You people do that so well.

And don’t forget to come and see my gig with Alan Keyes at the National Association For The Repression of Colored People! Be there or be part of the 47%!

Darryl Issa’s Latest Dikileak

Full-time Hearing-Haver  and thoroughgoing ding-dong Congressman Darrell Issa, not satisfied with exposing the Benghazi consulate’s CIA connections a week or so ago, decided he would helpfully dump a ton of CIA documents onto the web, thereby exposing the names of Libyans working with the U.S. Government and endangering the mission and their lives today. Hoo-Rah! He might have said in his youth, from the dock, after stealing his mess-mate’s car a little, but somehow he was never prosecuted, just as he won’t be prosecuted for being a Plaming hypocrite now. Isn’t it marvelous that a man exists who could make us miss the decency and wholesomeness that was Tom DeLay?

Toodles, D’Souza! A Scandal We All Can Enjoy

Yes, that is Sir Thomas More over the shoulder of randy smugstudly Dinesh D’Souza, who just didn’t know that affiancing yourself to your next before filing to divorce your ex is only cute when Henry VIII does it:

“I had no idea that it is considered wrong in Christian circles to be engaged prior to being divorced, even though in a state of separation and in divorce proceedings,” said D’Souza. “Obviously I would not have introduced Denise as my fiancé at a Christian apologetics conference if I had thought or known I was doing something wrong”.

And even Henry didn’t hit on other monarch’s wives, whether or not he’d axed the last angry queen. Henry also had the sense not to parade Anne Boleyn around the Vatican. He made up a new religion instead, which is a route we heartily recommend to Dinesh, whose talent for making things up is unquestionable.

King’s College promptly accepted the resignation they had D’Souza write, so that he could “take care of his personal and family needs,” which is darn snarky for a Christian college board, so well played, and enjoy not having to pay your do-nothing president any more millions!

New bride Denise Odie Joseph II (not a typo~~she got married in December 2011, so hey, she is a new bride!) is just as sweet as you’d expect her to be.

Here’s A Funny Thing: Mitt Romney Uses The Al Smith Dinner To Not Be Funny

We could have expected the Governor to be uncomfortable sitting a few feet from the man who pretty much Melvined him two days ago in front of the nation, but after a couple of gentle “Ha! They say I’m rich! Big Bird!” jokes at himself, he went after the President with the hatchet left over from crafting his stump speech. (YouTubes of both routines below the fold)
