looks like more rove-shit, or rather bullshit.

For years, political insiders in the Lone Star State have whispered about Rove’s close friendship with lobbyist Karen Johnson, a never-married, forty-something GOP loyalist from Austin, Texas. The two first became close when Johnson sat on the board of then-Governor George W. Bush’s Business Council over a decade ago. Their friendship reportedly deepened after Bush appointed Johnson—a little-known spokesperson for the Texas Good Roads Association—to a seat on his Transportation Department transition team in 2000. The plum appointment enabled Johnson’s lobbying firm, Infrastructure Solutions, to snare such high-paying clients as Aetna and the City of Laredo. Sources say Johnson now frequently travels between Washington D.C. and Austin, where she frequently appears at Rove’s side at parties and unofficial functions.

Although there is no evidence that their relationship is anything but professional, the close association between the married White House aide and the comely lobbyist has long raised eyebrows in conservative Texas circles. Asked about the pair, a prominent political journalist who has written extensively about Rove says, “I’ve heard the stories, but I would never write about Karl and Karen. If you want to keep your job as a reporter in Texas, you make believe you don’t see them together.”

Asked to comment on Rove’s relationship with Johnson, a White House spokesman firmly declined to discuss the matter, saying that their relationship was “the business of these two individuals who have personal lives…I don’t think that’s something that the White House should comment on.”

Right wing moral supereriority my ass!

Explain this bullshit....

Explain to me how this is going to fix ANYTHING!?!?! And what kind of foreign are we talking here...semantics wise, because the devil is always in the details. Does it mean that I (with my slightly olive complextion and curly hair) should not go running through the concourse of said tube stations but my fair skinned or straight haired Chinese sister could? (and yes my sister is chinese, american born, san francisco bred.)




Have we all lost our minds? It's looking more and more like it every day.

remind me why....

I don't do group projects?

- oh yeah, I remember now. It could be that no one wants to contribute until it's too late. In the past 3 days I've gotten over 400 e-mails.

400 - fussy- detail-oriented-bitchy-johhny-come-late-fu*&#$ing e-mails.

I wish that I were joking. But I'm not. I'm supposed to be taking this class for my own edification. To learn the principles on how to be a good project manager, but I find that all I want to do lately is squeeze the last raspy, gasping breath out of my effing "team"-mates.

I never did play well with others. Now I'm getting an inkling as to why.

everyone else is stupid.

What I've been reading lately

And watching: 30 Days

Turns out that this stuff has come into my cross hairs. The fact that I have been considering quitting, well that has since changed. There has been alot that has forced me to take re-stock of who and what I am doing.

- it happens to everyone. The fact that the proletariat revolution feels like its never going to come... the fact that we all work our collective asses into the ground, and as a result the new monied classes have nothing more to do than to ride our broken backs all the way to the bank.

The last time it was this bad there was a movement. There was a new enlightenment. There was REVOLUTION!

So what's different?

The setting is right; we are in a strange war with an undefined purpose and no set ending date, we have the greatest disparity amoungst the socio-economic classes in the past 40 years, we have collective rage, we have the highest ratio of secondary educated individuals on the market but no jobs for them.

I don't know about you, but all the lying and stealing and the curroptness... how can it do nothing more but feed into itself. Now the president will announce an new Neo-Nazi Con for the open position on the supreme court to try and divert attention away from Rove and his bag o'tricks.

But the thing that kills me, is that it's going to work. I can see it happening (just like it happens a million times before) he'll make a primetime announcement (what say like his 30th in the whole fucking 6 years he's been in office) about the new potential pigeon for the seat... and it'll So positively contreversial to at least one liberal group...that it'll divert all the attention away from what's really going on....

we've been had.

Neo-con or neo-nazi... seems the same to me.

okay - that last post was a little gruesome

I apologize. it does a little something to the stomach to watch it on repeat... so I'll take the image down and simply link to it.

although there are many a day that makes you want to do that out of pure frustration.

uh- yeah.

sorry about that again.
