    For the doubters:

    Iowa’s Cedar Gazette reported in 1990 that Limbaugh’s “AIDS Update,” a recurring segment in which he made jokes about a disease that had killed more than 100,000 people in the United States the previous decade, started by playing songs such as “Back in the Saddle Again,” “Kiss Him Goodbye,” “I Know I’ll Never Love This Way Again,” and “Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places.”

    On another note....

    My former Lt. Governor, Michael Steele is now with the Lincoln Project. (Gee, I wonder what he knew over the last year?)

    There were many things I didn't like about him which I don't recall. The reason for that is that when I do recall why leaders disappoint me or do wrong, I get so angry it's hard to live daily life. So I have to not think about specifics, but just recall the recoiling feeling. Then later I get reminded of the specifics.

    And so, from a different resident of this state,

    Steele was my Lt. Gov in Maryland for just one term, I believe, in the early 2000s. He said some typically (for the time) ridiculous things and I believe was behind a stunt where his gubernatorial running mate, Bob Ehrlich and their campaign bused in homeless men from Philly to harass voters at the polls (I even got mildly harassed by one of them who was inside the allowed distance for political workers at my polling place).
    What? Bussing people in? Voter intimidation? No wonder that accusation gets hurled so often by Republicans. It's what they've been doing for years.

    The tools of reflection and distraction have been finely honed.

    I hereby concede that women would be no more rational, no less warmongering and lying than the men we've had leading us (humans).

    January 6th and the aftermath have demonstrated to me that women are just as bat-shit as men.

    Showercap's blog this week is about Texas and Cruz, NAP. You may appreciate it.

    Here's a snippet:

    And did you see that...letter Adam Kinzinger got from his...family? Holy shit. I keep hearing about how much REALER than me these people are...but what they’re doing here is like if somebody in, say, October of 2001, got all up in your shit and started shrieking at you for refusing to take Bin Laden’s side.

    Far from it, Thursday was one of the slowest news days in a good long while, and there was little else to do but watch [Cruz] step, with miraculous precision, on every single rake in the known universe, one after the other.
    If I ever decide to write scathing editorials, this dude will be one of my role-models.

    This is pretty awful and yet terribly funny. I saw this quote yesterday:

    "The ambulatory Ed Gein inspired lampshade known as Steven Bannon..."

    I looked up Ed Gein... and

    Funny what happens when ideas reach the 'mainstream':

    You had to nod and smile as he explained how Spiro Agnew's ghost is making him fill this Big Gulp in order to seed a hybrid race of humanzee super soldiers who will be specially trained to defend future U.S. Jupiter moon colonies as soon as the time portal inside the nacho kiosk is completed.

    it seems my intent was mis-interpeted ...

    politicians are politicians ... all the óthers' alluded to are Democratic politicians ... bottom line to the white populists the greatest line of demarcation is race ... political and species race ... completely true and open ...

    if it was misconstrued i don't apologize that's not my issue ... it's the readers

    Gio you are off on a ridiculous rant ...

    oh Gawd, I've been cancelled ... I made my point anyway ...

    In 1985 Hoeflin and Langdon published the World's Hardest I.Q. test in Omni magazine. It must have changed overtime because in the original there was a question regarding the analogy between St. Petersburg and Petrograd to something else, I couldn't find it. Below are the verbal questions in the current version. Can anyone spot any analogy to the one I mentioned above. I wonder if I just went on some weird tangent and I am just remembering what I was thinking at the time. . It seems the original version was canceled. Likely once or twice.
