fun game

: listen to this woman for a minute, then guess who she wants to vote fer

whats interesting is our friend matthew good wrote these lines after watching the debate tonight, not after listening to the woman in the video: “No, tonight was a lesson in the exhaustive inanity of American politics. The Muses, it seems, have cast their euphoric haze and wait with anticipation to see what dead loss is born.”

matt and i agree on some things and disagree on others. i enjoyed tonights debate. i especially liked that for the most part they let each other speak. i liked that they presented their opinions on things and were both sharper in expressing those beliefs better than i expected.

i guess the same could be said for the woman above, she knows how she feels and does a fine job letting us know why she feels that way.

but whats most fascinating is she espouses just as many catch phrases as many politicians, bloggers, and knuckleheads. as if those phrases mean something.

when i see and hear these chorus of voices, i do not see gloom. i hear america. we are a melting pot like no other. we are a tom waits cacophony of drunken free verse.

and from out of all of it will come order.

man was created from mud

brilliance will rise from nonsense.


one of the reasons that john mccain dissed letterman to go on couric

was part two of this interview katie did with sarah palin, some are suggesting

because im not a sexist i will say that she was brilliant amazing unbelievable and totally presidential in this interview. i have zero idea why they dont let her go out and do way more of these interviews. everyone knows that katie couric is a bulldog interviewer, mike wallace in a pant suit. and look at how sarah barracuda hung in there and turned the tables in regards to russia and canada and her executive decisions in regards to both of them.

i have no idea how the polls have started to swing towards barry hussien and joe biden the plagarist.

maybe our pal matt welch has some insight to the most recent mccain move to put the campaign on time out. oh look, welchy has something in todays la times about just that.

earlier this week i partied with some LA bloggers

at a swanky club near the times

the edison is so popular on weekend nights that they wont let you in if you dont have a collar on your shirt or if you have jeans (if youre a dude), or if your not super hot (if youre a babe). ok that last part might not be 100% true but it sure seems like it.

on tuesdays they do this little back room action. its a throw back to the prohibition times, which is sorta the theme of the edison anyways as the hostesses wear sassy flapper outfits and the gents dress as gangsters. 20s gangsters. on tuesdays they dress like that too, they just shut down most of the spacious club and present entertainers and serve a limited choice of hand made $14 fancy drinks.

cant say i was impressed with the fancy drinks but i appreciated that the host stoked us with some food since there were so many of us and we were, after all, bloggers. thus royalty, duh.

being from uc isla vista i can pretty much drink anything, and i gotta say the mini hamburgers were probably the best mini hamburgers ive ever eaten, so thanks bro. meanwhile the belly dancer, the blue angel-ish chantruse dominatrix singerwas really funny, and the magician sorta freaked me out with how great he was with his close up illusions.

i got to hang with joz joz joz, jeff from thrillist, rachel from kcrw, moye from the wb, and many others including caroline on crack who put it all together who i should thank cuz it was super fun.

but i wont.

instead i will steal her picture without giving her credit.

but i will link to her gallery from that magical night.
