I drink my liquor from the palm
of a child who spoke in tongues
and smelt like sun

Benjamin C. Tankersley, Arlington Mud Puddle

* Top ten conservative idiots. excerpt:

9. Grover Norquist

So let's see: Scary radical Muslim? Fail. Scary radical Christian? Fail. Country club elitist? Fail. Typical politician? Fail. Uncompromising partisan? Fail. Looks like the GOP has only got one place left to go...
John McCain has been trying hard of late to link Barack Obama with Jimmy Carter in the public consciousness, hoping that the "ineffectual" label that many voters affix to the former president will prove transferable.

But Grover Norquist -- the conservative activist who specializes in promoting an anti-tax agenda and, more generally, revels in the role of agent provocateur -- is offering a different comparison.

Norquist dropped by The Times' Washington bureau today and, as part of his negative critique of Obama's liberal stances on economic issues and other matters, he termed the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee "John Kerry with a tan."
That's right folks - he's not just John Kerry, he's John Kerry with a tan.

* Homemade Obama bumper sticker in Texas.

* Get ready for the mother-of-all hissy fits.

* "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." -- Thomas Jefferson
