Worst in the Universe.

Tens of thousands of dead Iraqi civilians, 4,000 dead and countless crippled or maimed sons and daughters of the USA, a bum war built on lies and deception, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Mission Accomplished, the ignorance of New Orleans, the illegal and secretive monitoring of Americans, the current economic situation, torture, Gitmo, Dick Cheney, John Ashcroft, Arturo Gonzalez, Karl Rove, Paul Wolfowitz, Condi Rice, Brownie, cronyism, N.C.L.B., global warming as fallacy, stem cell research, one quarter of his 8 years in office spent on vacation in Crawford, Texas, Kennybunkport or Camp David, fishy vote counts in Florida and Ohio, Big Oil, Little Oil, Corn Oil, fuzzy math and science, bufoonery and lies ad nauseam.

Pete Seeger is the Nuclear God of Joy!

Did you see Pete Seeger, Bono, Seeger's Grandson, and an energetic kid choir on that HBO Inaugural Concert at the Lincoln Memorial? Pete led the crowd in a sing-a-long of possibly the world's greatest song: "This Land is Your Land" by Woody Guthrie. He included the best and oft not used verse which goes something like this:

As I was walking,
I saw a sign there,
And on one side,
It said no tresspassing,
And on the other side,
It said nothing.
That side was made for you and me!"

Pete glowed like the torch on the Statue of Liberty! He was as jubilant as the Nuclear God of Joy. And at the end of the song, he ran off the stage with a smile as big as all outdoors. The guy is 90 years old and he RAN off the stage.

I hope you're all singing something right now wherever you are.

Fux News, Batboy and Humpty Smirkey

My favorite part of the Mother of All Inaugurations was watching Fox News. So petty. So trite. So Bat Boy.

In the morning, they had lots of crowd shots of people celebrating along the Mall and their tone was dulcet and happy. But they would throw in these odd audio and visual clinkers that set the true Fox timbre. They talked about Obama's amazing global childhood which they attributed to his "hippie mother". They talked about Obama's resolve to unite the country as they pull up a shot of a member of Code Pink, which they show twice. They talked about whatever the guy's name is that supposedly killed some American soldiers somewhere and tried to link him to Our President. How pathetically sad of these people. How small hearted and small minded. How acutely cynical. How unpatriotic.

Why would Batboy ever want to be associated with these tabloid losers?

There has been some talk of investigating and bringing to trial for war crimes some of the main Bush players, including Humpty Smirky himself. And it doesn't seem like such a bad idea. The evidence is there, brought forth by the very players themselves in different forums and venues and by an "activist" Federal Judge who happens to be a Republican.

Interesting idea. But wouldn't it be more apropos to just let them sit on their ranches and mull in their own inept and insignificant juices.

Good riddance, in any case.
