The Gotcha

You know, I really despise journalists trying to make points off politicians through gotcha tactics. There was the case of David Shuster on MSNBC who tried to make Rep. Marsha Blackburn come off as an out of touch warmonger when she couldn't name the last soldier from her district to die in Iraq (link). Of course, it turns out that the soldier in question didn't actually live in her district. Oops!

And then there was Tim Russert who attempted to make Hillary play the fool by giving her a pro-torture (under certain circumstances) quote, having her respond negatively to it and then telling her the quote was from her husband:

We carry no brief for Hillary around here, but she clearly got the better of this exchange. Forceful and humorous at the same time. Other than Russert's pomposity, what does this sort of stunt really prove

Spend Wisely and Well

Wouldn't you like to know that when you spend money on things you would be purchasing anyway you are also helping out the causes that matter to you?

I mean, you are going to spend the money anyway, so why not make sure that the charity you choose gets a donation to help advance whatever cause matters most to you.

This link will take you to a site where you can find a wide variety of different credit cards. You can choose one that works for you, for the way you live and the way you spend. Want a card like I've described? A card that helps a cause near and dear to your heart? They can help you find the right one. Or maybe you need something with a low interest or no interest balance transfer option. They have those as well.

Like I said, they have a card that will work for you. Find out more at the link above.

It's Good To Be The Gov

Anyone who has followed Florida politics for any length of time knows that there has always been a rumor about Charlie Crist. It has dogged him for years, though it never really comes out in the "responsible" press. Namely, the idea is that Old Charlie, a bachelor, is... Well... A man's man, a man among men even. Yeah, you get the idea.

Now, I've been within about three feet of the man and I will tell you (for what little it is worth) that my gaydar didn't register anything. I would pronounce him straight.

Still, that being said, the rumor has always been there. Old Charlie seems bound and determined to put it to rest... Quickly... Almost as if he thinks he might be busy in 2008. You think maybe?

Anyhoo... He started off by "dating" America's hottest mom or some such. Now, it seems, he's decided to not just shut the rumor down, but to pound it into the ground and piss down the hole by dating a former Playboy playmate and current TV news reporter named Jennifer Santiago. Well, I guess you could call it a date... He took her to a Yom Kippur service. Romantic, huh? Now, if you take a look at her blog you'll see that Ms. Santiago is more than a little full of herself. That said, she's easy on the eyes and further proof that Charlie has excellent taste in beards women:

I Guess Spike Lee Was Too Busy To Play Jesse Jackson - Spacey to star in HBO's 'Recount'

So HBO is going to do a drama about the 2000 recount in Florida. Ed Begley, Jr. plays Puffy Al's attorney and Laura Dern plays Katherine Harris.

Oh yeah, this isn't going to be biased. Here's what I want to know... Has HBO done market research that shows their subscribers are overwhelmingly left wing nutjobs? Is that why all their "docu" mentaries and "docu" dramas are just a little to the left of Che Guevara?

America According to Drew Carey

Well, not Drew himself, but according to his game show The Power of Ten.

The last question tonight asked what percentage of Americans believe it is important that America stay in Iraq and finish what it started. The answer? Eleven percent.

Sorry, but I'm not buying that. Yeah, I'm sure the poll they took exclusively for the show registered that, but I'm not buying that as a representative sample of anything. Now, I don't have any illusions. I understand that only a minority support finishing the job in Iraq. What I don't believe is that we've reached a stage where it is a 9 out of 10 majority that wants to leave before the job is done. 7 out of 10 I could buy given the phrasing of the question, but not 9 out of 10.

I think Power of Ten is doing pretty well in the ratings, but I'm not sure why. I like Drew Carey but the show itself is dull. Oh well... Whatever.

Sunday Night With Dhue

Tomorrow's Monday. Enjoy what's left of the weekend:

A Question of Protocol

French Mime Marcel Marceau Dies

When a mime dies is a moment of silence still appropriate? Yeah, I know that's in horrible taste. Sometimes I just can't help myself. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go to church and repent.

You know, I've had pretty much every kind of computer you can think of. Brand names, no names and homebuilt. My latest and current is a Dell and I have to say that I am very, very impressed.

Unless you live in a hole you know that Dell is the leading personal computer manufacturer and marketer in the world. They offer a full assortment of computers in styles and prices to meet every budget and need. Desktops, laptops and servers... Whatever your needs are, they have the computer to fit the bill.

Like I said, my current desktop is a Dell. I bought it around Memorial Day of this year and I have been extremely satisfied with it. No problems at all and I got a great deal. Click on either of the links above to find out more about Dell and their great line of products.

Thoughts From A Rainy Friday

Generally speaking, anyone that One Note Andy dislikes is okay fine in my book. There are exceptions, of course, but this is generally true.

One person that One Note seems to profoundly dislike is John Derbyshire who writes for National Review Online. Derb is not what you'd call politically correct. I'm sure Andy doesn't think he is either, but there are matters of degree in these things and Derbyshire is certainly farther afield from the party line than is Andy. Still, whatever, they aren't going to be golfing buddies anytime soon.

Anyhoo, as I said, I usually like and agree with pretty much anyone One Note dislikes and disagrees with. Usually. Sometimes though...

Derb's most recent piece at NRO contains a section about the relative "manliness" of the major monotheistic faiths. Islam is, in his estimation, the most manly with Judaism in place and Christianity bringing up the rear. Derb is never entirely clear on just how he arrives at this testosterone poll but it seems to have at least a little to do with bloodlust. An odd way to classify religions if you ask me.

Live Blogging The Survivor Opener

-Way to dis a billion Buddha-worshipers, Leslie. No, seriously. Glad you didn't bend the knee to their pudgy little messiah.
-Jean Robert needs to pull his britches up.
-You know, all the great scenery is just swell, but don't let the ChiComs fool you. They're building a Potemkin village leading up to the Olympics, but the truth is that this is a dictatorship that shoots troublemakers.
-Hey Ashley... Maybe if you hadn't punched all those holes in your face you might not be so prone to infection. Just a thought.
-Tonight's inscrutable question: Can you curse, smoke, drink coffee and engage in man love and still be a Mormon? At what point have you so completely rejected the fundamental teachings of your faith that it is just nonsense to conitnue to identify yourself with it?
-You know, we considered naming the Bloglet John Hoo. Well, when I say "we" I actualy mean "I" and when I say "considered" I mean "it never occurred to me."
-That is one ripped chicken farmer.
- By the way? Jared is a tard. I know, wrong show. It just occurred to me. All these little brats are just annoying as hell. Read about them on CBS's website. Their parents wrote the answers to these trite little questions CBS asked them. All these kids have swallowed global warming hook, line and sinker. Maybe if we're lucky an earthquake will swallow the little town of Bonanza or whatever the hell that set... Sorry "ghost town" is called.
-When your nickname is Chicken, you pretty much know you're a dead man. And, while we're there... Doesn't it show a certain lack of imagination when you are a chicken farmer and your nickname is Chicken? I'm just saying.
-Could have been worse. But where is the hot lesbian barista? Each season I pray for a hot lesbian barista and each season, save one, I've been disappointed.

Squeezing the Juice

Do you know what the only fun part of this whole return trip into the crazy world that is OJ-land has been?

Listening to Shepard Smith make fun of the thing. Yeah, he's not Uncle Walt, but neither was Walter Cronkite, truth told. Shep knows the OJ thing is silly, knows its a waste of our time and his, but he also knows that the cable news nets have 24 hours to fill and OJ is good for at least 20 of those.

Book Learning

Nothing is more important than to give your children a love of reading.

Either Mrs. Mediablog or I always read the Bloglet a story before putting her to bed. She's too little to really understand, but we want her to develop a love and appreciation of reading. If she can read and if she enjoys reading then there is nothing she cannot learn.

Of course, if you're going to love to read, you have to be a good reader. It's crucial that your kids be capable readers. If they are having trouble then you may want to consider Reading Tutors like those provided by Score Learning Centers. They will work with your kids to make sure they don't fall behind.

Don't waste another minute. Click on the link above to find out about Score Learning Centers.

Sour Grapes Make Lots of Whine

Want to know why the season finale of Big Brother (and, to a lesser extent, Survivor) always sucks? It's because it is one long sour grapes festival from beginning to end. People who sucked at the game complain about the people who beat them. Of course, you have to watch it because you've come this far, but that doesn't mean it doesn't suck.

A Boring Scandal

The Greenspan book got a bunch of press this weekend. Why? Becuase the Maestro was supposed to have said that George Bush is an idiot, Hillary Clinton a genius, Bill Clinton a hero and the Iraq war was about blood for oil.

Well, more or less anyway.

As it turns out, of course, he said none of those things or anything even close to them. Saturdays are great days for this sort of thing. The media can slip off the wall stuff like this in, nobody sorts it out until Monday and by then the damage is done.

Anyone who ever heard Alan Greenspan knew that he didn't make any such bold pronouncements. The key to being a central banker is to say very little and say it blandly... And Alan Greenspan was a great central banker.

Latin Dance

Have you heard of bachata dancing?

If you visit a latin club you are definitely going to be exposed to bachata. It is everywhere at salsa clubs today. If you plan to visit a salsa club then you need to know this dance. The link above will take you to a DVD set that will help you develop a better appreciation for this fun dance. The Bachata Dance Mastery Set is a great way to expose yourself to this dance and find out how fun and exciting it can be.

Thoughts From Sunday Night

So the football game ran very late and I was forced to watch 45 minutes of 60 Minutes in order to get to the penultimate Big Brother. That's the only reason I would ever watch Andy Rooney. I get the whole curmudgeon thing, but isn't there supposed to be a lovability-factor in there with curmudgeon? Andy's just a boring prick.

Whatever... So Long As John Travolta Doesn't Do The Movie

The Way to Happiness Foundation

So I saw the tail-end of this soft-focus, Mormon-esque commercial running this evening on MSNBC for something called "The Way to Happiness."

Hmm... What's that, I wonder? Point, click and there we are at the website. Turns out it's the "first moral code based wholly on common sense" and it's written by L Ron Hubbard.

Now, personally, I've always turned to Ben Bova when I'm seeking an ethical code composed by a science fiction writer, but to each his own.

Look, I'm all for ethics and morals. Good old L's 21 precepts seem, on the surface at least, pretty straightforward and positive. Still, do we really need a scifi writer to restate the Golden Rule? After all, we already have it on pretty good authority.

A Conversation


Hey, man... How's it going?

Ouch! Geez... I'm sorry to hear that, buddy. I've had a hard drive crash on me before too and it's a pain to restore all that data. Still, just be glad you back up everything on a regular...


Um... Well, sorry to hear that. You really should have used a backup solution like Anytime@Anywhere online backup. If you had, we probably wouldn't be having the conversation right now. You'd be able to restore everything you lost quickly and easily.

Okay, pal. Talk to you later. Bye.


Ahead of the Curve

NBC (and, to a lesser extent, CBS) did something very bright by making some of their new pilots available early through Amazon Unbox (and, I think, other services).

This weekend, Mrs. MediaBlog and I watched Journeyman, Bionic Woman, Chuck and Big Bang Theory and now all of them are set as Season Passes on the Tivo. In all likelihood, we wouldn't have watched any of them other than Bionic Woman had we not had the chance to preview them for free via Amazon.

Face it... Your kid's probably not going to win the Nobel Prize.

That's okay, mine isn't either. We can't guarantee fame or fortune or even success for our kids. What we can do is make sure that they have the right foundation. We can make sure they have a sold educational basis on which to build a life. They may not be an astronaut or a tycoon, but they can get the education they need to be productive, the kind they will need in this century to provide for their family.

If your kids are having trouble in math, it's vital that you get them help now. Don't let the problem snowball. Like most things, it is easier to get help for a small problem then to wait and let it turn into a big one. Score Learning Centers can help you keep those small problems under control. Score Math Tutors can give your kids the help they need to get back on track.

Every day of your children's education is precious. There is so much to learn and so little time to learn it. Don't waste a minute by letting your kids struggle. Get them the help they need. Click on the link above to find out more about Score.

Pack Rats

When I moved from an apartment into a house I thought my days of having storage problems were over.

Uh, no.

Yeah, it's great to have extra closets, an attic and a garage. Still, the more space you have, the more your stuff expands to fill the available room.

Notes From Thursday Night TV

-Glitter Gal looked stunningly HOT tonight. And that rock Les gave her must be the size of a frigging asteroid.
-Unintended (?) off color comment of the night? "I officially broke Dick."
-Does it make me some kind of creepy perv if I want to see Glitter Gal star as the Dragon Lady in a tawdry B-movie? Don't answer that.
-Hmmm... Maybe Dick will vote Danielle out. Or maybe not.
-You know, the Donatos really did have an unfair advantage. Unlike the other "enemies" they had a bond that actually meant something. Yeah, you might be angry with your dad, but he's still your dad. As opposed to your worst enemy from junior high or your sodomite relationship gone south.
-Watching Zack describe his "strategy" is like watching a tard explain astrophysics. Why did this moron have to be a FSU alum?
-Yeah, Danielle is hot, but that voice is enough to make me cut my knackers off.
-Why is Fox using that weird aspect ratio for Dubya? Okay, they fixed it.

Failure to Plan is Planning to Fail

Don't you want to have a comfortable retirement? Or maybe your primary concern is making sure your family is provided for when you're gone. Yeah, none of this is the sort of thing that anyone really loves to talk about, but it is very important both for your future and for those you love. Because it is so important, it is absolutely vital that you start making plans right now.

Morris, Hall & Kinghorn is an Arizona law firm that can help you to make sure your tomorrow is just as good as your today. This isn't "death planning" it's "life planning." These folks are experts in elder law and they can help you develop a whole life plan that will make sure you enjoy retirement and your later years.

People are living longer and longer lives these days. That's wonderful, obviously, but it also brings new challenges to life planning. Because you can expect to be retired for 20 years or more, you have to plan for the long-haul. You need to set aside enough money and make the appropriate plans to guarantee that you will have enough to meet health emergencies while still enjoying what you worked a lifetime for. Morris, Hall & Kinghorn can help you to do exactly that.

Do not waste another day. Start planning for tomorrow right now. Let Morris, Hall & Kinghorn help.

Don't let go of the anger. Finish the job.

After six years it is very easy, very natural, to move on. Don't.

Blogger Malaise

You may not have noticed it, but I've had a bad patch of blogging lately. I just can't seem to find much that interests me enough (or, more typically, makes me angry enough) to blog about.

The War goes on and on. I don't get as worked up by the Democrat's talking points because, quite honestly, I've learned to tune them out. Even the disgusting hit-ad on General Patraeus can't get much of a rise out of me. It's just more of the same. It's also nothing but talk because everyone knows that the troops are not coming out while Dubya is in the White House. Even after he leaves, large numbers of troops are going to stay in Iraq whether it's Hillary, Rudy or someone else. Everyone knows this. The rest is just theater.

And speaking of politics... Those aren't motivating me either. I suppose I could have gone to town on the last debate or on Fred Thompson entering the race, but I'm just not feeling it. The election is SOOOO far away. Most of the people on stage are not serious candidates. They'll be gone before the first snows fall in New Hampshire. Why spend a lot of time and energy on the race right now?

There isn't even much to talk about on TV right now. I'm not going to spend/waste my time or yours talking about Miss Teen South Carolina or Britney or any of the rest of it. I'm not interested and neither are you. The Fall season just seems to start later and later so that leaves me with Big Brother. To be honest, there's only so much you can say about that freak show in a non-Dr. Will year. Particularly this year when the casting has been so poor.

Put it all together and you've got blogging blahs.

A Trip Down Memory Lane

Friends, it's the mid-80s. The Cola Wars rage, parachute pants have not yet been finally defeated and I'm playing Pirates! on my Commodore 64.

As part of the concerted effort to defeat international Communism, led by President Ronald Reagan, Elton John gives us the song Nikita. It is the powerful story of a Russian East German Border Guard who is being romanced by a bi-sexual pop singer who tries to blend in at Checkpoint Charlie by driving around in a red covertable, wearing a fez and making hearts in the snow. The aforementioned Nikita considers sending him to a gulag, but instead returns his flirtacious advances until her boss tells her to go back to the guardhouse.

The end.

Still, La Femme Nikita est tres hottttt!

Sometimes It Takes More

Diet and exercise are great. I'm being serious. They are two of the keys to a healthy life.

Still, sometimes they are not enough. Some people, even after they've tried, need some extra help to reach a healthy weight. For people like that, the Lap Band System may be the key. Lap Band is a new form of obesity surgery that is much less invasive than some of the other techniques you may have heard of. What does that mean for you? Less pain and a faster recovery.

Find out more information at the link above. See if the Lap Band System may be the right choice for you.

The Dwarves on Parade

Does anyone really watch these debates?

I decided to spend twenty minutes on the Republicans tonight and I'm already wondering why I bothered. I mean, I've got Mike Huckabee and John Birch... Sorry, I mean Ron Paul, screaming at each other. What's the point? Meanwhile, Duncan Hunter is down there on the end jumping up and down and making strange expressions with his eyebrows.

Until this narrows down to three or four it is nothing more than a sideshow. That's even more true for the Democrats.

John Edwards Will Strap Your Mom Down And Scan Her Boobs

Edwards Backs Mandatory Preventive Care

You know, you really can't make this stuff up. John Edwards not only wants the government to give people free health care, he wants the government to MAKE people take advantage of it. To quote:

"He noted, for example, that women would be required to have regular mammograms."

Required. And if your mom maybe doesn't want to go and let a doctor put her tits in a vice? Sorry, Charlie, the National Health Police will knock her door down, cuff her and take her off to her local clinic where they will strap her down and search for lumps whether she likes it or not.

But I don't want a Pap Smear! Sorry, grandma... Spread em!

My prostate is fine! I swear! Cram it, gramps. Now where is that KY?

Out of the Mouths of Losers

Tancredo Slams Katrina Spending

You know, there's a particular freedom that only comes with being a presidential candidate pretty much no one has ever heard of. You can say every little thing that comes into your mind. You can even, wait for it, tell the truth.

Such is the life of Tom Tancredo who is usually best known for wanting to ship people back to Mexico and nuke Mecca. Now, not that either of those is necessarily such a bad idea, but the fact is that Tom has about as much chance of being elected president as I do and I'm not even 35.

Still, he's dead on right about this. The MediaBlog has been opposed to a lot of this "relief" almost from the minute the winds died down. You take a miserable city and fill it with water and you're left with a wet, miserable city. QED.

This shakedown has got to end. They've had enough help from the rest of us. Let them rebuild their own damn city. Or don't rebuild it. I've long since stopped caring.

Prison Rape Is Okay In Florida

I guess it must be, anyway, since the Florida Department of Transportation has based their latest ad campaign around it. What I am referring to is an anti-drunk driving spot that features a clean cut young fellow going to prison for drunk driving. A grizzled-looking prisoner sees him and says, "I hear you like to party." New fish rushes to the bars and screams!

Now, nobody likes drunk driving and I'm all for discouraging it, but is it really appropriate for the State of Florida to be telling people that if they commit crimes they are going to be anally raped?

Woah! Woah! Woah! Woah!

Okay, so someone found their way here by typing the following into Google:

"How did Moira's husband from the phillips phile die"

Now, as far as I know, Mr. Ex-mo is still alive and kicking. At least, I have NEVER heard otherwise. Divorced? Yeah. Deceased? No, not to my knowledge. If I'm wrong about that, I hope someone will set me straight, but I really don't think that I am.
