Something strange is going on

Something Strange is going on

I don’t believe in those mass conspiracy theories, but something strange is going on. Conservatives suppressing the truth is nothing new. Why they decided to bury this report is obvious. It simply doesn’t conform to their world view. Tax rates for the rich have no relation to overall economic growth. This was a no-brainer, but millions of Americans where suckered by the GOP who sold this as fact.

The largest progressive blog has been down most of the day. Now, I go to the Daily Kos about once or twice a day. I have done so for years. I don’t remember its being down for anything but maintenance. Crashed? All day? Just before a big election? Something is up. (BTW, the Daily Kos is based in California and not on the East Coast.)

Another progressive blog, Crooks and Liars, is down. This isn’t good. I don’t know what craziness has been pulled. I wouldn’t think that conservatives… wound hack… yes, they would. Something strange is going on. This may turn out to be something very explainable. Then again…

For my Friday Night music selection –
Artist: Three Dog Night
Tune: Momma Told Me not to Come

Terrence Trent D'arby: "Wishing Well"

Which Palin Did McCain choose?

How many people have gotten bogged down in trying to figure out who this Palin person is? I know, or at least I think I know, that she isn’t Michael Palin from Monty Python. No matter. I’m not going to focus on that for now. I’m going to revel in the afterglow of the Democratic National Convention.

The convention wasn’t perfect. Everyone wanted some one to say something else or something more. Senator Hilary Clinton didn’t support Senator Barack Obama enough– Horse feathers. Obama didn’t talk about the blight of blacks in the inner city– Give me a break. This is was the most energized and progressive convention that I have ever witnessed. It was coordinated. It was harmonious. It was as good a convention as the Democrats can put on in my opinion. It was marvelous.

So, I’m going to continue basking in this glow for a little longer. The music selection for tonight will be Terrence Trent D’arby. There was so much fanfare surrounding this one huge mega-hit. He was supposed to be the next Prince. NOT. He had this one hit then a minor one then he was gone. Poof.
