Well, we found something sadder than a Tea Party rally.
A sparsely attended Tea Party rally.
The problem is it doesn’t come with the proper accessories to really sell. Just as you shouldn’t sell a Captain Kirk action figure without his phaser, you shouldn’t sell a Tebow action figure without his cross.

Michael Vick will be playing at Stanford in 2014. Crystal clear.
Sweet Fancy Moses. Is he wearing a cape or are those his ears?

It’s been a crappy week for Obama. Gun safety is now DOA in the Senate, he said something about Soc Sec that he’s been saying for two years and he complemented an attractive woman for being attractive.
Guess which one is worse?
I do appreciate a craftsman at work.
True professionalism on display.
Are. You. Fucking. Kidding. Me?
Where is my pitchfork and torch when I need it?

I like Josh Marshall’s mash note to Rand Paul: “Thanks for proving that the talking filibuster is a reasonable tool of dissent as opposed to the silent filibuster.”
It’s when the Congress finally wants to write new rules for the 21st century form of warfare (“Now with less state on state action!”) that this will be more than a stunt.
The rules we’ve developed over centuries for warfare between states are no longer applicable to terrorist/criminal networks.
The primary change in national security in the 21st century is that state vs. state violence has declined. Meanwhile intrastate and non-state violence has increased. Most intrastate violence is not really our concern until Anderson Cooper puts on his safari vest and gets a satellite linkup.
But non-state actors are our concern. And using traditional military means to deal with non-state actors doesn’t make sense. Invading and punishing the state of Iraq for the actions of non-state Al Qaeda doesn’t make sense (on a host of levels).
Drones are a problematic solution to a more problematic problem. Yes, yes, by all means, we need more oversight. We need some sort of adversarial judicial procedure to try people like Al Awlaki in absentia.
But waging war with a drone or the 10th Mountain Division is an arbitrary distinction. Which tool works better? In this case, drones.

I fully respect tbogg’s decision to blog less.
But for FSM’s sake, please put something up. If I have to see Hawkins’s wattle and read the words “man gravy” one more time, I might swallow a bullet.

And Lincoln like TOTALLY took his time freeing the slaves, and only kind of freed them with the Emancipation Proclamation not really no take backsies.
So Lincoln sucked too.
You can have my coffee when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers.
Or when it gets room temperature.
Either of those.
Let’s just note that the LVP was the gay-baiting bigot in the Niners’ secondary.
Of course, their decision to play Bill Donahue there was a curious one.
Here’s one of her learning to serve her boyfriend.
Oh, my stars! It’s a cookbook!
The Chinese are just jealous that their crazy people have to attack school children with knives and not AR-15s. This means that Newtown stole all the click-throughs and page views that rightly belong to the PRC’s own homegrown assholes.
And there’s your Benghazi tie-in. Libya=no gun control=massive page views.
It’s Tina Brown’s world…
The NRA shut down it’s social media. Not a single pro-gun Senator showed up on the Sunday Gabfests. A little sunshine and the Crowne Plaza caves.
It’s almost like the gun lobby/enthusiasts/sociopaths have been on top for so long that having the mass of public opinion against them (at least on assault weapons) has floored them.
It’s the moment in so many stories when the hero discovers that her greatest fear is really just an old man behind the curtain.
I can’t recall, but I don’t believe she has kids, does she?
You have to read Garry Wills piece on how guns have become our new Moloch:
We have turned guns into objects of reverence and we appease this new god with child sacrifice.
The Church of Moloch just found their Joan of Arc.
The next time this happens (and sadly, so sadly it will happen again) we can be reasonably sure of a few things:
The shooter will be white.
The shooter will be male.
The shooter will have issues with women.
Mancard? Fuck you.

Every spring, we drive my 11 and 8 year old boys the 25 minutes down the road to Sandy Hook School for a soccer tournament. I know the road where all those parents are waiting in dread suspense.
How the fuck…..?
