Michael Winship: Sex and the Silly Season

by Michael Winship

As anyone who has ever read Douglas Adams' "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" books knows, the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything is, "How many roads must a man walk down?"

The answer, calculated over 7.5 million years by a computer called Deep Thought is, simply, 42.

Now, researchers at the University of Texas have announced the number of reasons people have sex.

Subject: Spy Bill

This bill demonstrates how we really don't have two political parties. The Democrats are truly pussies and are scared of everything. They accuse the President of illegally spying on the American people and then authorized a bill to give him more power to spy. I've been blaming the Bush Administration for all the mess we are in but the truth is that this weak, scared, pussy-ass Congress has cosigned or collaborated in these crimes. Let's be realistic and admit that we have this group of old elite white men running the government and business and the American people are being screwed on a regular basis.

Tonight, MSNBC will telecast a Democratic presidential forum sponsored by the AFL-CIO, with an expected audience of thousands of union members at Chicago's historic Soldier Field. Although questions will come mostly from labor folks, the forum will be moderated by MSNBC's Keith Olbermann, known for his searing anti-Bush "Special Comments."


My, my, it’s amazing the lies they tell to try and make a Repuglican look good! Several major news organizations -- including USA Today, the Associated Press, Chicago Tribune, and The Post -- have in recent months referred to Jeri Thompson as both a political consultant and lawyer in articles about Fred Thompson's nascent presidential campaign, in which his wife has taken a leading role. And supporters of the Thompsons have repeatedly invoked Jeri Thompson's status as an attorney to challenge insinuations that the 40-year-old mother of two is a mere "trophy wife" for the 64-year-old actor and former Tennessee senator … the hard fact is that Jeri Thompson is not a lawyer.”

Rep. Bob Allen, that kind of explanation
Will make anyone who hears it squirm
Which is why it's time to go out and hire
A brand new crisis management firm.

[BuzzFlash Note: Warning: Lots of pessimism and anger expressed herein. The Senate vote enabling further domestic spying and expanding executive powers has not been well-received, shall we say?]

What was Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) thinking when he told Senate colleagues it was a "sad day" when that body started taking its marching orders from an outsider (the president and the director of national security), in passing a new version of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that gives the president a free hand to spy on communications of Americans without a judicial review?

Is he implying that this is the first time the Senate has done this?

If only tragedies in America would trigger greater compassion for the anguish of those in other nations. If only American pain would bring a deeper understanding of the pain felt by others in the world.

Sometimes it does.
