Ghosts and Specters














Security camera footage of yours truly buried in research for today's post.

I know we often criticize purveyors of crocodile tears and 'thank you sir may I have another!' policies such as Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter, but perhaps it's time to bury our doubt and righteous indignation once and for all, especially after yesterday's rant, an instant classic on a timely and vitally important topic that speaks to our nation's very soul:

"I have documented the strong factual case that a Justice Department investigation was neither objective nor adequate," Specter told nytimes.com on Wednesday evening. "If the President doesn't move for an independent investigation, then there will be a permanent black mark on the Bush Administration and the United States' record will be historically tainted. Depending on the public reaction, I may ask the Senate Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on the FISA exemption."













Arlen, you sonofabitch, go on with your bad s -- oh, he was talking about that.

There's a lesson to be learned here, children: don't drink and drive surf.

The government should stay out of sports, they've already fucked up the country---leave our sports alone. Hypocrites.

Anita said...

Senator Spector, as usual, clearly has his priorities straight.

Oh, and Randal, aren't you supposed to be on vacation? I recall telling you that you should consider staying at Ron Jeremy's pad in LA. Particularly given your long history as a salaried sex worker. I figured he'd welcome you into his den of iniquity. So what happened to that, dude?

Anita is dying to know.

I dunno..... I kinda liked the quote Spector made..

"They are enormous role models for everybody," Specter said. "If you can cheat in the NFL,*(Senate)* you can cheat in college, you can cheat in high school, you can cheat on your grade-school math test. There's no limit as to what you can do. I think they owe the public a lot more candor and a lot more credibility."

Just change it a wee bit ....

And really...what's wrong with a littl cheating? I cheat when I play "Tomb Raider"!

Randal Graves said...

ME, BUT STEROIDS ARE THE GREATEST THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY AND FUZZY FEELINGS SINCE THE MUSLIM JIHAD O' CALIPHATE-ISM!

anita, trying to get rid of me already, huh. Actually, I'm back at work today. I should have taken the entire week off. I was very productive. I told Ron that I couldn't make it since Gillian was staying the week.

okjimm, *gasp* Are you saying that elected officials.....cheat?

The only reason you cheated on Tomb Raider was to see the giant, pixellated boobage.

okjimm said...

Hey....gimmee a break! It is the only game I play....Lara Croft is smart,articulate, rich, and an adventurist; can kick the shit out any baddies.....and she has GREAT pixellated Boobs!!!

moral....it is better to be in love with a cartoon woman who should be real.....

....than my ex. (who turned out to be kind of a cartoon.)

Mary Ellen said...

okjimm- Oh...that's what I need to get men attracted to me...pixellated boobs!

b said...

As glad as I should be that Specter is calling bullshit on the Patriots and the NFL's seemingly lame investigation, I am repulsed by something substantial - he's a politician!!! Hypocrisy!! On a happier note, this post reminds me that football starts in 3 months!!! Hooray!!!

By the way, you don't have me fooled... I know that's no "research" magazine you're happily perusing in that first image! ;-)

Freida Bee said...

Well, I'm only glad you're back at work so that you can carry on the newest strain of the Splotchy Story virus in your second tagging by me in one week.

Oh, Arlen is thinking very politically, I'm sure. He's showing that he's willing to take a harsh stance against the Bush administration. Sheesh.

Swinebread said...

grrrr, lame

Randal Graves said...

okjimm, your ex sounds like a peach. The kind with the worms.

ME, not at all, just show yours more.

b, but it's only two months until training camp! It certainly is research! It's an art magazine, high class photography and all that. ;-)

FB, I seem to recall one Freida Bee proclaiming her dislike of too much taggery and yet you brazenly do the same to me, twice? Could this be considered sloppy seconds?

I don't mind, actually, but this means I have to think of something. Dammit.

Randal Graves said...

swinebread, you take that back! He's a friend of both our current and future presidents!

Dean Wormer said...

Spector dodges and weaves in more directions than a magic bullet.

At least he has his priorities straight.

La Belette Rouge said...

Is that NFL link you sent us to a new division of the Onion? This cannot be true. really, the black mark on Bush's record is going to be because of his lack of investigation into football. Ugh, I am not feeling so good.

Utah Savage said...

Work away Randal. And thanks for your support for my apology to all the crackers out there I offended.

Randal Graves said...

dean, Arlen killed JFK! Assholes like him and Voinovich are the worst. At least with freaks like Coburn, you know they'll always say, do and vote like a fucking lunatic.

LBR, "history will judge me, heh, heh." Funny how the only judge the biggest psychopaths end up in front of IS history.

utah, hey, crackers are crackers and since we're crackers, we can call crackers crackers and if other crackers don't like it, I don't really fucking care.

Liberality said...

quackers? did somebody say quackers?

Frederick said...

Spectored again.

F.O.T. said...

Oh c'mon Randal, there no need to be so harsh... those investigations are hard. Or so says my Barbie Doll.

Randal Graves said...

liberality, these clowns are about as effective as a cartoon duck.

frederick, too bad there weren't more of these types, then we'd have a real shot at getting that into the lexicon.

fot, that's all well and good, but did you even think to ask Ken's opinion? It takes two to lie: one to lie, and one to listen.

Tom Harper said...

"A permanent black mark on the Bush Administration"?? Oh My God, Specter is playing hardball now. That'll get Dumbya shaking and trembling. In addition to that black mark, he'll have to go stand in the corner 'til class is over.

b said...

I know. Only 2 months until training camp! God, I love late summer/autumn!!! I'm not my current restless self during that time.

An artsy magazine, eh? With really good articles thrown in? ;-) Nice try.

I think that I shall run my own investigation - Looking into Women's Volleyball.
