So long and Mahalo.


Just got in on a rainy night in the devil's cauldron of Liberalism and Feel-Good Sinnery, having contributed positive vibes to the taping of the Naked Trucker and T-Bones' DVD at the Troubadour, when I learned via the internets the Hunter S. Thompson killed himself today.

I read the Great Shark Hunt when I was 18. I dressed as the good Dr. for Halloween my freshman year for the South Street debauch in Philly.

My dorm room was adorned with a homemade poster, the opening quote to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: "He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man- Dr. Johnson."

Read his final column , Shotgun Golf with Bill Murray, here.

Maybe the Rapture has begun, and the Lord took the truest of believers before the going got really weird.

Bushes don't get old people.

According to an ABC News story tonight, the Bush Administration "doesn't understand" why their social security agenda isn't more popular with seniors, who won't be affected by any changes to the system.

They don't understand because they are conservatives- people who believe in looking out for number one, that if it doesn't hurt me then I don't care . Conservatives are notoriously short-sighted.

They can't fathom that our older generation might want their children and grandchildren to have what they have. The Greatest Generation is patriotic and doesn't delight in the idea of fucking over the people they will leave behind.

See, as Anne Frank reminded us, the majority of people are good at heart.

The Bush Administration cannot understand this.

Banana Republicans

I was wondering this morning if this country really is sliding into Banana Republic-hood. I'm afraid this move might be permanent.

Attention right wing nuts: your media lies to you constantly. Truth is good for you and our country. The media you think is "liberal" looks right wing to us liberals. The media you think is fair and balanced is right-wing propaganda. Your disregard for truth is shameful. Soldiers are dying because you are too lazy to seek truth- you prefer pabulum, jingoisitic candy. You like it all dumbed down and hooray for our side right or wrong. And you believe the crap that they say about liberals.

You deserve the country you get, you lazy, dumb fucks.

Hey looky- here's another Bush shill exposed as a "reporter". Do you even give a fuck that our country and our press used to be better than this?

Who is this pervert Jeff Gannon anyway, lobbing softball partisan questions at your President Gump?

Of course, it has been worse in some respects, like the days of the Palmer Raids and all that- I'm just afraid the glorious country of my youth, a country I likened to Atticus Finch more than Uncle Sam, has morphed into a fat, dumb Lush Rimjob- for good.

Until somebody nukes us into dust.
