Friday afternoon plush

So much cuter than any republicans I know.

Random life

This is some random, flowering, desert plant growing in my courtyard.

It is several times more intelligent than either Gary Ruppert or dith.

Jabba Haiku - Day 2

We're on Denny the Hut Death Watch Day 5. I believe more haiku is in order. Post your contributions in comments and I'll put them up.
Jabba spins madly
Crushing all with his foul bulk
Save him it will not.

Meanwhile, the Federal Probe Intensifies.
WASHINGTON -- The Justice Department ordered House officials to "preserve all records" related to disgraced Rep. Mark Foley's electronic correspondence with teenagers, intensifying an investigation into a scandal rocking Republicans five weeks before midterm elections.

Oh, my. Anyone got popcorn??

Update 4:44 pm: from watertiger:
Greedy fat bastard.
Protects child predators.
That's Denny Hastert.

Meanwhile, back in the forgotten war.... 8 GI's Die in Baghdad, the largest one-day death toll since 2005:
BAGHDAD, Oct. 3 — Eight United States soldiers were killed Monday in Baghdad, the United States military said, the most in the capital in a day since July 2005.

Four of the soldiers died in a roadside bomb attack; the four others were killed by small-arms fire in separate incidents.

Monday’s loss also represented one of the highest nationwide death tolls for American troops in the past year. In late August, nine soldiers and a marine were killed in a day. But before that, the last time eight or more soldiers were killed in hostile action was last November.

“Obviously this was a tragic day, with eight killed in 24 hours,” said Lt. Col. Barry Johnson, a military spokesman.

Incidentally, I had to go looking for this story. None of the major newspapers, or cable outlets have this as a prominent story on their front pages.

I guess they've gotten the message from Karl that they need to down play the Iraqi clusterfuck prior to the elections.

Oh, and by the way, 51 Iraqis died on Tuesday as well. As Billmon notes, if it's American blood, it leads. Iraqi blood? not so much.

PS. Dennis "I support the troops!!" Miller? kiss my centaur ass.

Late night kitty

"What's with all the fucking trolls?"

Cover for Denny the Hut

Billmon has found the perfect cover in case Fat Denny decides he needs to wrap himself in the flag.

The question is, can he seek cover before his fellow scumbags toss him under here?

Plushy brain bleach

I don't know about you guys, but all this talk of Denny blubber is making me queasy.

So here's a little plush to sooth our tortured psyches.

I feel like I should say something about the impending meltdown.
Foleygate poison
Spreads. Jabba's time is ending.
Titty babies wail.

Okay, there. I said something.

Let me just give some advice to 50 year old pervs everywhere: 16 year olds of either sex do not find your 50 year old droopy carcass sexy, nor do you make them horny.

Oh, My!!

Where I wish I was

From the NY Times. The Louvre in Paris.

I think my new ambition is to be a travel writer and photographer. Anything to give me an excuse to go to amazing places. And possibly stay there.

Even more New York

Another nice thing about New York is the astonishing number of dogs that live there. New Yorkers love their pets. Probably much more than they love each other.

This shot was taken at the dog run in Union Square Park, which is a delightful place to visit on a warm September afternoon. I'm not sure who was having more fun, the dogs or this little boy.

Sadly, I was only in New York for 2 and a half days and I didn't get to use my camera nearly as much as I'd hoped to. This is probably my favorite picture from the trip.

Sometimes luck is with you and you get to catch a nice moment.

More New York

One of the nicest things about New York is the amazing amount of greenery to be found there. People who have never lived in NY tend to imagine it to be a vast concrete jungle. Well, okay, it is that, to some extent. But there are also trees on most blocks and quite a few parks.

This is a shot of the park on the grounds behind the New York Public Library. It's really lovely, and thanks to global warming, on this September evening, there were many people occupying the tables among the trees.
