    can you believe that in the middle of our miss universe two week pre show bonanza 

    someone would have the nerve to come up in here and say yeah i havent been through here in a long time, but can you change everything that youre doing?

    apparently im not giving the instapundit enough shit.

    which is true, but thats not what we do over here. im not my pundits keeper. im not interested in shooting fish in a barrel, im not ready to sell out to the lowest common denomenator of pointing fingers and saying HA youre wrong again! i know thats what gets hits. i know thats one reason why glenn is number one in some lists and number two in others and why the daily kos is one or two on those same lists.

    but thats not my thing.

    dont you see how its effecting our bro matt good?

    why would i want to sully myself in the mudslinging and misrepresentation of a segment of the blogosphere who will seriously split hairs down to debating about whether newsweek was wrong in saying that a military investigation has revealed that there was koran abuse in a prison or that it was simply just an inside military individual who admitted to the flushing of the muslim good book

    when the bigger picture is America in 2005 is in the torture business

    and our tax dollars are supporting it

    and our president is supporting it

    and far as i can tell the right wing bloggers want to turn a blind eye to it.

    and you know what, let em. fuck em. think i would hang out with any of them if we all lived on the same block? then why on earth would i pay attention to their good ole boy network of neuveux dittohead bullshit?

    didnt the last election teach us that all the blogs in the world will not make an iota of difference in jesusland. didnt 2004 teach us that you could make a film as great as F 9/11 and it can make $100 mil and tell an important story in american history but there will be enough naysayers to say “shutup hippie quit being fat” and the goobers and the greedy will hold hands and bum rush the show again and again and again.

    those are not the stories i want to report upon.

    as joe strummer and mick jones said the other day:

    They offered me the office, offered me the shop,
    They said I’d better take anything they’ve got.
    Do you wanna make tea at the BBC?
    Do you wanna be, do you really wanna be a cop?

    i really dont wanna be a cop. and a cop is someone who says oh you fucked up, look at how you fucked up, look at how wrong you are, look at where your lack of education and your bad choices have led you, heres where you went wrong. and of course this is the right way to do things.

    instapundit has his thing, kos has his. they seem very happy in their world and theyre successful business men reaping hefty rewards doing what they do. i am not in the slightest bit interested in any of that.

    you may see me from time to time comment on this thing or that thing but dont get used to it and certainly dont expect it.

    what the busblog will continue to do is write about me, LA, the hotties, miss universe, television, the wonderful world of blogging, and rock music. the cubs are breaking my heart but they may get a few keystrokes as well.

    i am sure that you can find other blogs in the blogosphere who will happilly continue to write about how wrong guys like the good professor are, and if youre not aware of them, here are a few

    oliver willis + wonkette + crooks and liars
