blaow! how you like me now
was clinton's an 'honorable' discharge? : ABC News' The Note: First Source for Political News

a few things:
1) the note, linked above, is certainly, at least for my tastes, the most valuable daily political jump-off out there. my gut tells me that the majority of the poltical reporters out there read it every day, and it's a great way to get the backstory to the headlines. if you care, and you should, you should read it. especially those of you in journalism school, but I know that I don't have to tell you that.

2) it's a bit phony for republicans to answer all investigations of bush's guard service with a reference to his honorable discharge after the 'purple heart' band-aids floating around their convention.

3) that's twice that debates here at Wash U have been cancelled the year I show up (clinton pulled out of the '96 debate). sorry if i jinxed it.

4) i'd like to welcome the counter-trey back to the NFL. thank you, joe gibbs. now will the new cornerback rules make the eagles lack of a secondary devastating or meaningless to their defense? answer that question for me, and I'll be able to handicap the NFC east with awesome and terrifying precision.

Monday, September 06, 2004 - BUSH 'TOOK COCAINE AT CAMP DAVID'

That's some arrogant shit right there.
The traditional start of the fall season
work dat twerk dat

Clinton calls Kerry from his deathbed.

The fall has officially begun. Now, if you haven't been paying attention, there's an election on. Now, traditionally, people start paying attention and the race begins in earnest.

(Oh, were it that the race began for Earnest, now that he's back from camp, but no, a man can only dream, and this whole country isn't California)

Anyway, word on the street, and the street being the NYT article above, is that Clinton's bridge-builders are driving through the country in an old cop car, talking about getting the band back together. I'm especially excited about getting Carville back in the game. He's got my favorite kind of crazy in him, crazy like a fox, which I guarantee will contrast well with Zell Miller's batshit rabid feral-dog crazy.

Things to remember for fall:

Joe Gibbs is Back
You will be listening to my radio show over the internet, so block out some time accordingly.
Kerry is historically a good closer, and one of the reasons August was so bad for him that no one is mentioning is that he didb't spend any money.
If you're using a sharp knife to get the pit out of an avocado, use the face of the blade, not the tip of the blade, to cut into the pit. Sure, the tip will work, but what if you miss? What then? If you can't figure it out I'll send you pictures of my left hand. That'll wake you up, Bubba.
Be glad you're not in my fantasy football league.

Cheers. And remember, from here on out, it's a sprint, not a marathon.
