Conceived above a saloon, delivered into this world by a masked man identified by his heavily sedated mother as Captain Video, raised by a kindly West Virginian woman, a mild-mannered former reporter with modest delusions of grandeur and no tolerance of idiots and the intellectually dishonest.

Video of the week
Last night's Colbert Report was brilliant, with sharp comedic writing and marvelous self-deprecating bits featuring Hillary Clinton and especially John Edwards:
Edwards: There are two Americas; one America that does the work, and one that reaps the rewards..."
Edwards: "If we want to, we can end poverty in 30 years:"
The full Edwards video:

That's what ya gotta do....
There are more than 19,000 like this on ABC's web site...
But if you watched the self-congratulatory Good Morning America today, you'd have thought the event was moderated by the ghost of Edward R. Murrow. Then on to the polygamy trials, which is, of course, news vital to the republic.
As Will Bunch of The Philadelphia Daily News observed, "Indeed, if I were a citizen of one of those nations where America is seeking to 'export democracy,' and I had watched the debate, I probably would have said, 'No thank you.' Because that was no way to promote democracy."
Television is no longer a source for unbiased journalism. Except, of course, for The Daily Show.

Hoist by her own petard...
A certain logic...
Perhaps the GOP is stronger on defense. If the Democrats can't even protect the country from Republicans, how will they protect it from terrorists?

re: The elite and the bitter...
We must abandon the prevalent belief in the superior wisdom of the ignorant.-Daniel Boorstin
Current Lou Dobbs poll on CNN:
No more dummies for President...
I know elite is a bad word in politics, you want to go bowling and throw back a few beers... But the job you're applying for? And if you get it and it goes well? They might carve your head into a mountain. If you don't actually think you're better than us, then what the **** are you doing?
In fact, not only do I want an elite President, I want someone who is embarrassingly superior to me. Someone who speaks 16 languages and sleeps two hours a night hanging upside down in a chamber they themselves designed. I want someone like this guy:
(Some unrelated trivia... "this guy" is actually actress Meg Wyllie.)

This does not bode well...
Today's the anniversary of Lincoln's assassination and the Titanic hitting the iceberg, and to top it off, today's National Temperature Index is 666°F.

The firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail address is now something other than email@example.com saga.
kgbreport.com used to be kgb.com until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up kgb.com and adopting kgbreport.com created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the kgb.com domain name in 1993, and had since that time used firstname.lastname@example.org as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that email@example.com was no longer firstname.lastname@example.org but rather email@example.com which is longer than firstname.lastname@example.org and more letters to type than email@example.com and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than firstname.lastname@example.org but actually just as functional as email@example.com? I sent e-mails from the firstname.lastname@example.org address to just about everybody I knew who had used email@example.com in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the firstname.lastname@example.org change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which email@example.com was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for firstname.lastname@example.org would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that email@example.com no longer is the firstname.lastname@example.org they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. email@example.com. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
