so we’re gonna *use* the recording studio in the yutz’s living room — the yutz in question being, of course, conservative America’s own bearded lady, Sarah Palin. (Or maybe chicken-head geek. Hard one to nail down, carney-wise.) TPM’s quoted quote was a cherce and representative example of the interview-with-a-schizophrenic-cat-lady-on-the-street genre:

You don¡¯t bring a lawsuit to a gunfight, and there¡¯s no place for lawyers on the front lines.

Never give the early bird an even break, and it’s an ill wind that brings May flowers, amirite?

Anyway, DailyKos’ Hunter nailed it yesterday vis-a-vis Mooseburgers’ being the conservative traffic circle smack dab on the corner of dog whistle and dumb:

The reason [Palin] still gets all that attention? Because she is not a unique little flower of the movement. Not by a stretch. Not even a little bit.

Her cookie-cutter wisdom, little bits and phrases taken from movement fortune cookies and stirred together into an incongruous word mulch, is precisely what the wider movement wants to hear; that much, and no more. If she says impeach, it is because the conservative zeitgeist has gotten its collective undies in a bunch over the word impeach, and if she stumbles over the reasons it is because not one person in her audience truly cares what the reasons might be. If she is considered a wise owl of the movement, it is because all the people clapping are that much dumber. Paul Ryan is the Budget Wonk, because he once wrote some numbers down. They didn’t add up, but by God he wrote them. John McCain is the serious foreign policy wonk, because John McCain demands we alternately bomb or arm every last faction he hears about, which are the only two serious foreign policies that the entire vast sweep of conservative think tanks have ever been able to come up with. The CPAC crowd and the NRA crowd are entirely indistinguishable because both define “freedom” to be something you get by taking it from the other guy.

And Sarah Palin is their prophet because the job was open, and the cash is good, and because it is a requirement of the movement that you dispense a soylent mush of symbols and shibboleths and angry exclamation points to your audience without ever saying anything that would be too specific, thus causing conflict, or too moderate, thus implying weakness, or giving a general flying damn about the law, or recent history, or what you said last week. She is their prophet because she is perfect at this job. She represents the id that has overtaken the party and swallowed it up whole, the id that has given us the Scott Walkers and the Chris McDaniels and the All of Texas. She is the painted clown at the entrance to the great conservative roller coaster, the one that grins and points out a finger and says you must be no smarter than this to enter.

How can a traffic circle be on the corner of anything, you ask? Grasshopper, you have much to learn.

As part of an ongoing series examining the gun cultures in Minnesota, I wanted to examine consequences of gun violence, talking to those whose lives have been permanently altered by firearms, either after losing a family member or surviving gun violence themselves.

Those I talked to are not a monolithic group. Some […] grew up around guns. Others didn¡¯t. Most favored legislation that would require a background check of every person who seeks to buy a gun, some want policies more effective at keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. And yet, despite their experiences, not a single one believed that taking guns away from gun owners was a solution to gun violence. Indeed, with a single exception, they all said they were anti-gun violence, not anti-gun.

Or something to that effect.

ORLY?

From MotherJones’ Science Deniers Are Freaking Out About “Cosmos” via TPM:

Some creationists, though, don’t like the Big Bang; at Ken Ham’s Answers in Genesis, a critique of Cosmos asserts that “the big bang model is unable to explain many scientific observations, but this is of course not mentioned.”?[…]

…the [Discovery] institute’s Casey Luskin accuses [Neil deGrasse] Tyson and Cosmos of engaging in “attempts to persuade people of both evolutionary scientific views and larger materialistic evolutionary beliefs, not just by the force of the evidence, but by rhetoric and emotion, and especially by leaving out important contrary arguments and evidence.” […]

it seems some conservatives are already bashing Tyson as a global warming proponent. Writing at the Media Research Center’s Newsbusters blog, Jeffrey Meyer critiques a recent Tyson appearance on Late Night With Seth Myers. “Meyers and deGrasse Tyson chose to take a cheap shot at religious people and claim they don’t believe in science i.e. liberal causes like global warming,” writes Meyer.

Nah, christianists and what-have-yous are veritable fonts of reliable information. Lo, the scales have fallen from my eyes; abject apologies all around, y’all.

Somewhat tangentially, about three weeks ago, Rep. Steve Scalise (R-Confederacy) cracked wise at CPAC about the Obama administration’s foreign policy…lack of oomph:

“Without firing a single missile, President Reagan actually brought down the Soviet Union, and you’ve got right not a President who’s you know, John Kerry’s flying around and drinking merlot with people, and saying, ‘Let’s all be friends,’ and they’re laughing at us right now,” he said.

Oh, the world’s laughing at us, all right. Just not for wine-guzzling diplomatic junkets.

(“Drinking merlot” means pantywaist, by the way. In case you missed that. Also, “without firing a single missile” means “Reagan’s schlong was so, like, humongous, that he could fuck Russia without ever taking it out of his pants.”)

So Wednesday, accidental porn star and Idaho Governor Butch Otter “signed into law SB 1254, the bill to allow people with Idaho¡¯s enhanced concealed carry permit to bring guns on Idaho public college and university campuses.”

This sounds like the perfect solution to a problem that doesn’t exist, but what the hell, because freedom. Any number of possible shootings, maimings, head wounds, paralyzed limbs, and bowel resections are worth making sure people know we’re not French, amirite? But I jest.

Or maybe the thinking was: campus shooting sprees, comma, what wouldn’t be happening if everybody was armed… All well and good, but I’d like to point out that Moscow Idaho, the home of the University of Idaho (and, oddly enough, one of Sarah Palin’s 5 or so alma maters) already had a shooting spree 15 minutes’ walk from campus a few years ago. Local student Pete Husmann had a gun, grabbed it, ran out to help, and accomplished getting shot three times — but not much else that I can recall. Which is not to denegrate his urge to help, but rather to point out that a gun isn’t, to borrow a Whedonism, a glow stick of destiny.

The problem no doubt was not that *he* grabbed his gun, but rather that everybody else *didn’t*. But I jest.

Anyway, more official-type information on Idaho’s gun carry laws here, and here, and here, and here. This from TPM is also worth a read, although now dated: Professor Asks Idaho Lawmakers For The Green Light To Shoot A Student.

Israel’s diplomatic corps was left with no other choice but to ratchet up its year-long labor dispute with the Ministry of Finance, after the latter caused the failure of a seven-month mediation process led by the former Chief Justice of the Labor Court.

Two other items of note from the USA Today article: there was a previous strike in June, and this current strike coincides with Netanyahu’s stop in California.

Senate Bill 401, approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee this week, was drafted in response to a January incident at a Shawnee Mission middle school in which a poster used in sex education classes was put on a classroom door.

I insist that racism is our heritage, that Thomas Jefferson’s genius is no more important than his plundering of the body of Sally Hemmings, that George Washington’s abdication is no more significant than his wild pursuit of Oney Judge, that the G.I Bill’s accolades are somehow inseparable from its racist heritage.

Two years ago or thereabouts, my girlfriend and I found ourselves pregnant. It was a semi-surprise, in the way such things often are. I mean, it wasn’t a surprise-surprise because there we were, doing the thing that makes babies, but we were both, not old exactly but older, and I had always thought I was shooting blanks, for one reason or another. And we had been together for four, five years, so you’d think stork and chimney would have found each other by that time, but they hadn’t.

And then they did.

The both of us went a little buh-cack at the news, but the checklist of new-parent things-to-do insulated a little from the reality of it. Take the home test. Take the test at the GP’s. Get the Nimrod’s Guide for not Dropping the Critter on its Head. Start planning daycare because of the waiting lists. That kinda thing.

But acceptance came sidling in, as it does, through the cat door. We started calling the baby “Freep” — you know, from the old Bugs Bunny cartoon where Yosemite Sam goes to a vaudeville show to see Fearless Freep the highdiver, because bigod he wants to see somebody dive off something high. We started calling him that because we’re stupid, and maybe a little because a cartoon is less scary than something happening to you, but maybe mostly because Sam kept yelling, “We want Freep! Bring on Freep!” Freep was there in the future, just behind the curtain, waiting to appear. And once you start naming things…

However, the one thing Freep did in the cartoon, famously, was not show up. In retrospect, perhaps not the best thing to name him.

Time comes around, the next thing on the checklist was an ultrasound. And my girlfriend went. And my girlfriend came back. And there wasn’t a heartbeat.

The baby dying wasn’t real for me. I should’ve looked into things more, should’ve known what was expected to happen after that, should’ve…the whole list of shoulds. You know how that goes, always easier to look back on the happened than take part in the happening. But Freep was a cartoon, so I didn’t look; I just let gravity do what gravity does, pull me along in its wake.

Sometime after that, longer than I would have thought, Freep decided to move on to his next gig. My girlfriend called me up, in pain. I ran to her house, and called her doctor while I was running — who talked me down, at the same time as she talked me over what was going to happen and what needed to happen. It was bad, but not hospital-bad. Just the normal bad that happens when a baby decides to hit the road.

I put towels on the floor, and laid down beside her, and stayed calm because she needed me to be calm — and not be the targetless, out of control Yosemite Sam I was inside my head. I was there all night, helpless and trying to help.

She got better, but stayed sad, and so did I. We broke up a few weeks ago, which was unfortunate and maybe the best thing for both of us. I think maybe we’re too much like family to have made a go of it as a family.

Like I said, we’re stupid.

But…I wish Freep had stayed. I’d have made a crap dad, but who doesn’t? And if nothing else, me’n’Sam had bought our tickets; woulda been nice to see the show.

Orofino, Idaho has a state mental hospital; aaaaaaand….the Orofino High School sports teams are known as The Maniacs.

The story of the Orofino (Idaho) Maniacs is one with unclear intent and differing opinions.

Had the State of Idaho not decided to place a mental hospital within a stone’s throw of the high school, the Maniacs mascot name would likely be a cool name and nothing more. But because the Idaho State Hospital North is so close by, you get two different trains of thought: 1. To some, it’s a hilarious coincidence and a source of pride. 2. To others, it’s an unfortunate connection that should be changed.

Appropriately enough, Mascot Madhouse carries their merch, along with equally ironic stuff. Thinking about becoming a Hurst-Bush Hummer booster, myself.

TPM quotes the Zombie Eyed Granny Starver trippin’ balls again:

“We have an increasingly lawless presidency where he is actually doing the job of Congress, writing new policies and new laws without going through Congress. Presidents don’t write laws, Congress does,” Ryan said on ABC’s “This Week.”

Jonathan Bernstein rebuts (this flavor-of-the-month argument, if not Ryan specifically) in Obama’s Radical Adherence to the Constitution:

[…] at least so far, nothing that Barack Obama has done even hints at significantly upsetting the normal balance. Which doesn¡¯t mean that he¡¯s colored inside the lines every time; if he hasn¡¯t, however, that¡¯s what the courts are for (although Ornstein wonders if conservative judges will just wind up acting as partisans).

Still, as Ornstein says, overall ¡°Obama is well situated in historical precedent to use his executive power.¡± Basically, it¡¯s pretty simple. In broad outline, Obama can use executive orders and other executive action because presidents have always had the ability to do so. Claims to the contrary are either ignorant of the Constitution as it is written and as it¡¯s been lived for over two centuries, or (in the case of those who clearly know better) just plain dishonest.

I don’t know why this lie, the lie of the Lawless Obama Presidency, pisses me off more than anything else that comes out of the Wurlitzer. Maybe because Cheney’s shadow government is still so fresh; maybe because it just plain sounds like incitement to violence, to revolt.

Either way, I’m calling bullshit.

Bernstein lists Five Reasons Scott Brown Will Run for President.

Pundits have speculated for months that Scott Brown is plotting a U.S. Senate campaign in New Hampshire. I, for one, believe he has bigger plans: Brown has hinted that he¡¯s feeling out a 2016 presidential run, even if media in Boston and DC have brushed the idea aside. Shortly after Brown lost his Massachusetts U.S. Senate seat to Elizabeth Warren, he sold his Wrentham home and established a residence across the border in Rye. He¡¯s since popped up at Republican fundraisers all over his new home state. Democrats assume Brown wants to challenge New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen in 2014. But he¡¯s also been making trips to Iowa. Sure, it¡¯s the birth state of his wife¡ªyet more important, as any armchair analyst can tell you, New Hampshire and Iowa are the two key early-voting presidential primary and caucus states. Not only do I believe Brown¡¯s considering a run at the White House, I also don¡¯t think he¡¯s crazy to do so. Here are five reasons why.

Bernstein-the-latter’s point 1 is “He has a strong profile.” Now, I know by “profile” he’s talking about being famous with Joe Lunchpail or Sarah Straphanger, but I think this line is (unintentionally) truer in the chin-you-could-crack-walnuts-on type way.

Ok, not that Walnuts. A different kind of walnuts.

Personally, I don’t see Scott Brown sticking his toe or any other part of himself in the water in 2016, but you gotta admit, he does look like the slice o’ beefcake every Republican boy is dreaming of, don’t he?

In that vein, here’s a few pre-article quotes from “PHILLIPS HOLMES: Too Beautiful” on The Chiseler, because “Carole Lombard”.

¡°Phil I loved dearly, but he was too beautiful to be in love with. You¡¯d really get hurt. I knew that.¡±

¡ª Mae Clarke, Featured Player

¡°I know that quite sincerely/ Houseman really/ Wrote The Shropshire Lad about the boy.¡±

¡ª The Schoolgirl in Noel Coward¡¯s ¡°Mad about the Boy¡±

¡°Young Phillips Holmes, on the Paramount roster of juveniles, has had his hair bleached and curled for a forthcoming production. Now he is a perfect blond. Whenever Jack Oakie sees him on the lot he pauses, and a puzzled expression crosses his face. ¡¯Oh,¡¯ he always says with mock surprise, ¡®I thought you were Carole Lombard.¡¯¡±

The sarcastic SOB in me wants to know the policies the country clubs this joker belongs to (if any) had regarding admitting Jews (if any) over the years.

Per Jordan Weissmann on The Atlantic:

This is the reductio ad absurdum of a rich-guy’s persecution complex. The Jews were a minority. The rich are a minority. Therefore, criticizing the rich is akin to committing genocide against the Jews. QED.

And, in conclusion, nice fucking minotaur, ass.

Matt Yglesias has an interesting thought on the Ama-drone nonsense, in When Every Day Is Buy Nothing Day:

Think of Netflix. Why buy DVDs and build your own video library when cheap, ubiquitous streaming means you can rent access to your library?

So imagine the same principle for everyday goods. […] What if we could subscribe to Netpots and have the drones bring us exactly the tools we need? Different priced subscriptions would entitle you to have different numbers of items “checked out” simultaneously (like the Netflix DVD-by-mail product), and then you’ll return what you don’t need any more when you don’t need it anymore.

I’m with Metavirus regarding politics getting me down in the “not wanting to write about anymore nonsense” type way. But this little ditty on TPM — Kevin McCarthy asserting this weekend’s (tentative) arms deal with Iran was both a devious smokescreen, and unimportant, really…don’t people understand how stupid saying this sort of thing makes them sound?

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), the No. 3 Republican in the House, said Sunday that he hoped the Obama administration hadn’t used a nuclear deal with Iran to distract from the problems of Obamacare.

But McCarthy also said when being asked about it on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that he would withhold judgement on the matter. The question came after Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) appeared to accuse the administration of using the deal as a distraction from the health care law.

“I know they need some other type of news, but that would be the biggest mistake any administration could do,” McCarthy said. “I would hope that would never be the case.”

He also said that the agreement reached with Iran to halt its nuclear program “is not a historic deal.”

There’s only so many times one can scream “What, are you a bunch of morons?!?” before one can consider the question well and truly answered. Yes, Virginia, they are a bunch of morons.

More on — ha,ha — the Iran deal here. Geez.

Also, you get the feeling that the TPM columnist wrote that “No. 3 Republican in the House” line just to rub it in, the all-pervasive feeling of stupid coming off these guys? ‘Cuz I do.

According to the Tribune, that money came from a Utah businessman, Jeremy Johnson, who had hired Rawle to help him avoid a Federal Trade Commission lawsuit.

Earlier this year, Johnson accused Swallow of helping broker a 2010 deal where he believed he was to pay Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) $600,000 to make a federal investigation go away. The Tribune first reported on Johnson’s allegations in January, just days after Swallow was sworn in to office. Swallow denied any wrongdoing at the time.

On Thursday, [Utah Lt. Gov. Spencer] Cox, the lieutenant governor, spoke openly about the possibility of Swallow’s resignation.

Via Jon Chait, Tina “flashy crap over substance” Brown proclaims print is dead, along with a bunch of other stuff.

And, I tell you hwhut, when Tina Brown says it’s dead, you know it’s dead, because Tina Brown knows from dead.

¡°I think you can have more satisfaction from live conversations,¡± [Brown] said, adding we were ¡°going back to oral culture where the written word will be less relevant.¡±

[…]

And with entertainment conglomerates buying up news companies, television too is in a poor state.

¡°TV is dead and now they are chasing a demographic they are never going to find,¡± said Brown. ¡°We¡¯ve reached a moment¡­¡®my god the television is an ugly piece of furniture¡¯.¡±

Reflecting on Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos taking over the struggling Washington Post newspaper this year, Brown viewed the enterprise with a whiff of cynicism.

¡°Owning news makes you important; it gives you a seat at the table. The number one way of becoming powerful in Washington is by becoming the Washington Post.¡±

Or getting elected to some sort of “government position”. I hear that’s still pretty popular.

(Noted wordsmith and peripatetic raconteur Sarah Palin must not have gotten the memo in re: the written word’s demise though — she’s hawking another 3 pounds of usta-be-a-tree. On the plus side, she’s reading it, too!)

“AMERICA! Due to the decimation of our manufacturing base and the destruction of our middle class, we don¡¯t make cars anymore! We make movies about cars that turn into robots. BOOYAH, MOTHERFUCKERS! Forefathers! Constitution! FUCKING FREEDOM, AMIRITE?¡±
