And the winner of the first Let's Vote, by a vote of 62% to 38% is:
I have a few finds of my own, but they pale in comparison. ACMIfan set me a link to an interesting item up for auction on Ebay. Recognize it?
Yes, it's a field Anderson's shirt from Abercrombie & Fitch, in beige, complete with the embroidered moose on the flap of the pocket. My DH wants this shirt but no way could he squeeze into a small. Wonder if it's Anderson's size? He sure could use a new one.
In my searching around the internet I've found several blogger accounts that place Anderson at the Scissor Sister's concert in New York City on Saturday night. I'm jealous, I'd love to see one of their concerts. Did you read Rachel's account of her SS concert experience in NOLA? When Ta Dah was first released Rachel asked me what song I liked best. After many, many listens I think it must be 'I Can't Decide'. The lyrics are twisted but so quotable. For example:
It's a bitch convincing people to like you
If I stop now call me a quitter
If lies were cats you'd be a litter.
And the chorus:
I can't decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you'll prob'ly go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride.
I told you it was dark and twisted, but it's catchy. Do you have a favorite SS song?
I made a decision tonight, I love John King! No, not like lower case love, but LOVE, as in he's awesome. Did you see Broken Government? I think it took balls for a Washington correspondent to paint such a dark picture of the current administration. Actually maybe JK showed restraint, he could have made our current administration look even worse, if he wanted to.
I was moved by Senator Robert Byrd's account of his first impression and subsequent reality of President Bush. In Senator Byrd's own words "No President is above the law, or above the Constitution. I have to say that this White House, I think, has disregarded the Constitution in many ways. And I think the people are going to make a judgment and so will history." The current administration has skirted and subverted the rights that our founding fathers guaranteed us in our Constitution and they've gotten away with it. It brought me back to Keith Olberman's comment earlier in the month concerning the poisoning of habeas corpus. He said"We have a long and painful history of ignoring the prophecy attributed to Benjamin Franklin that 'those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.'" So who to believe, Benjamin Franklin or George Bush when he says 'Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists'. I think you know my answer.
And if I haven't depressed myself and probably you enough here's something that keeps me awake at night. I can't help but think Karl Rove has a rabbit he's just waiting to pull out of his hat to rescue the Republicans in the midterms. Whether it is capturing Osoma, firing Rumsfeld, or another 'terrorist' plot that wags the dog, I just feel like the other shoe has yet to drop. Please let me be wrong and let this election be decided by people based on facts not further manipulation of facts. And on that happy note have a wonderful weekend!
