    “YM Snowden” seems to not be on speaking terms with “turns out well”. It’s a complete mystery why this might be so.

    OK, so I go away for a week and this happens…

    I’m pretty sure letting WWTBD? exist, MyFDL rules notwithstanding, would have been better for ad revenue and site visit numbers than otherwise, but at least the purest of the pure have each other. Until they discover each others’ impurity.

  • So Filner was attending camp at the same time he was begging the San Diego City Council to pay the legal fees…arising…from his ass-groping duties, which he didn’t realize he doesn’t have because Filner cancelled the training that was necessary to clarify this point for Filner?

    Somehow, the head-hurt that causes is still better (or, at least, funnier) than some twat-waffle blathering about NSA’s Dronez, or whatever.

    Wow, it only took five posts to turn a Basset Hound post into wiretapping? Way to go…

    I don’t see a startling amount of daylight between the idea that the G is tracking everything we do online, and the idea that any dingbat employer can–and is willing to–run to the cops because he saw something he didn’t like in hubby’s internet history, and the cops say “hey, we’ll get right on that, thank you, Citizen!” Instead of, you know “buzz off, dude, we have real work to do”.

    First, that’s “dingbat former employer”.

    Second, I don’t think we know enough even to say whether the former employer was being dingbat, was mindlessly following some “rule” that may or may not make sense in this case, or was simply exercising proper due diligence and protecting their other employees – we don’t know the circumstances around this employment becoming “former”, nor do we know how ‘pressure cooker bomb’ was seen in the ‘search history (once, often, from logs, simply from what showed up in the browser…).

    Fifth grade snark; Check!

    Somebody posted snark in TBogg’s comments section?! How the hell could such a thing happen…I think you should write Jane a sternly worded email alerting her of this fact.

    Hmm…paranoia, imagined self importance…gotta fit wine amongst the food groups…nope, one additional food group doesn’t leave a very interesting diet.

    To be serious for a minute…I think the biggest problems related to the FISA stuff are 1) the “court”‘s record of failing to refuse any requests makes it clear that it isn’t any sort of “watchdog”, and 2) the fact that keeping such orders secret from those who are not suspects and whose information is directly impacted makes it nearly impossible to challenge this stuff in court (the secrecy causing otherwise legitimate suits to be dismissed on false “standing” grounds).

    I’d just prefer “allies” on these points whose hair isn’t on fire.

    Almost seems like the title of this TBogg post might be relevant…

    Cool, thanks! Here’s a glass of Rioja.

    How odd that fans of a defector to Russia would condemn you for thought-crimes…

  • From the Amazon.com description…

    Despite the general dysfunction, how did you go from here to Christine O’Donnell?

  • How does Christine O’Donnell pay her rent during those times she’s not running for office?

  • My current state senator (yes, smaller district, of course)

    In Ca State Senate districts are larger than U.S. House districts (only 40 State Senators, 52 Reps)

    I’d guess that’s why your substantive responses were uninteresting.

    Friday and Monday Shakira’s ass would be a nice way to bookend the weekend.

    Actually, while Baja’s Santo Tomas area does produce OK wine, can’t say I’m hugely impressed. It’s just really nice desert.

    Jane needs to take us on a road trip to Baja. South of the Californicated Tijuana-to-Ensenada strip.

    Yeah, speaking for myself, that would pretty much be the issue.

    Some people (e.g.: John Cole) admit their F-up and plausibly move on. Some people don’t really talk about their F-up but go on to make sense, and thereby gradually build credibility. I’m fine either way. I’m not so fine with hearing the same tone of certitude now that was there for the F-up, but now with Moar Certitude. Makes me think the present certitude is equally misplaced.

    Is there anybody in that thread who’s not typing shit either to get a rise or to admire their own navels?
