Damn Straight: Out of My Mind for 25 June 2009

Why go to Argentina when you have your own Evita at home? (Read below.)

When women go wrong, men go right after them. — Mae West

Most men are within a finger’s breadth of being mad. — Diogenes the Cynic [sounds like the name of some modern Greek comedian?]

The major advances in civilization are processes that all but wreck the societies in which they occur. — A.N. Whitehead

Great moments in journalism: Weatherman harassed his anchor for years.

The health insurers confess: The industry is bad for our health. A public option is mandatory, but we’re not going to get it. But just imagine: a public option the carriers have to compete with….

Wow! This wingnut’s an even bigger piece of garbage, an even bigger scumbag than we thought! Resign? In a truly moral world, he’d be shot for massive failure of leadership. His love declared. And we gratuitously bash him ’cause I so hate rightist hypocrites. And of course I think he’s worse than Spitzer, just for the hypocrisy.

Speaking of Republican scumbags, from history: Billy Graham sucks up to “Tricky” Fick Nixon with a little gratuitous anti-Semitism.

Oooh, the secret of the success of Bing! Micro$oft found something to steal. That’s innovation, Micro$oft-style: steal. (Goes with: Don’t sell; force on people.)

Really, what kind of person cannot hate them? The wingnut philosophy:

These arguments will come from the very people who denied that the economic recovery plan created any jobs. We have a very odd economic philosophy in Washington: It’s called weaponized Keynesianism. It is the view that the government does not create jobs when it funds the building of bridges or important research or retrains workers, but when it builds airplanes that are never going to be used in combat, that is of course economic salvation. — Barney Frank

Professor Krugman agrees with me: Obama has already failed on healthcare. No need o pay any more attention to the issue, the carriers won and we will not be treated even worse. Thanks, Barack, have a smoke and enjoy enjoy your presidency.

Another idiot heard from who should be ignored. Please, Judge Posner, let’s delay reform, clearly there’s no urgency.

Wish my president had these....
