Weekly Roundup #4

Please join in the Valley of the Shadow Annual Fundraiser. We are raising $7,700. Please hit the Tip Jar here to contribute. Thank you.
I would have published earlier this week, but this was the last of the Summer Movie season, and work got very busy (I blame Balls of Fury). Here's what I missed, with song titles:

A) Smokin' in the Boys Room (performed by Motley Crue): Senator Larry Craig caught toe-taping in the men's bathroom in the Minnesota Airport. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor of improper conduct. The Republicans, in the end, had their Goldwater moment. Yet, the Left asks, what about Senator Vitter? Here is the answer: Vitter acknowledged his guilt, he pleaded for charity from his family and received it. The issue was mooted early. Craig lied to himself and his voters, thus he had to leave. In the 90's, the Democrats pushed the idea that a bad personal life does not equate to a good professional life; If the Democrats believe their own rhetoric, Mayor Giuliani and Senator Fred Thompson have a good shot at the Presidency.

B) Goodnight, it's time to go (Performed by Chuck Berry): Senator Warner, the last Patrician of the US Senate declared he will retire. The Democrats have been salivating over veto-proof majority status for a dozen years. If 2008 should be a sweep of Executive and Legislative branches by Democrats, guess what, how much of the Rhetoric will be thrown away once in power?

C) Life During Wartime (Performed by Talking Heads): I keep on hearing Democrats say they want "Out" of Iraq (even though we haven't been out of Germany and Japan for over 60 years); I would like to know how Peace will occur if Iraq becomes a replay of Afghanistan 1995? Or do massacres only count if they are Democratic constituents (Read: Darfur)? Wasn't it President John Kennedy who said "We will pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and success of Liberty," Or does Liberty overseas only count in Democratic administrations?

D) Summer in the City (Performed by Lovin' Spoonful): The NY Yankees swept Boston, own the Wild Card spot. Will they go all the way?

  1. THAT was your Goldfinger moment? Yeah I know, but after the last 6 years, who can really tell the difference between republicans and Bond villains? No, that was your Phil Leotardo moment. The only thing missing was the pool cue. I do find it entertaining to watch the way you try to spin the news. As if a congressman partaking of gloryhole action is the same as a president ordering a break-in and espionage of the other side. And like the whole Vito Spatafore story arc on the Sopranos, I am finding this all incredibly entertaining to watch! Did you see that one YouTube clip where Larry Craig called Bill Clinton a "nasty, bad, naughty boy?" And then to watch that pack of homophobes who would have made every excuse in the book if this guy was busted with his hand in the cookie jar (or even his finger in a vagina) all turn on him like Michael Vick on a dog who lost a fight. It's classic. I could just picture Bush being briefed on this and being like Pauly Walnuts getting a little extra angry when he finds out that Larry was giving as well as receiving.
