Nutshell

The short history of modern American politics is as follows:

Conservatives poison the public well with paranoia, bigotry and plain bugfuck insanity while sabotaging the government on purpose to gain political and economic advantage.

Liberals point out that poisoning the public well and sabotaging the government are, y'know. bad things.

Centrists clutch their pearls until their palms bleed, and then blame their stigmata on both sides being equally unreasonable and mean.

Directed by Jim Jarmusch

This alley runs to the farm on the hill
Where the nights are wild and the petrol spill
Firestone Freddy and Molotov Jack
Their shadow goes but it soon come back
Striking sparks in floods of oil
No name no flag for mother soil
You can guarantee she`ll burn tonight
`Cos England keeps the household white
Ahh...1986, Thatcher, Reagan, Mike Tyson, and before BENGHAZI!, just BEIRUT! (yet, strangely, not quite as shrill).

Wolverines!



I get what informs this movie—class warfare of the economic variety—the haves and have nots.

But I'm rather certain that our rightward leaning neighbors will equate Tilda Swinton with Obama.

When will they secede, and is there anything I can do to help?

Yet, I do want to see this movie.

p.s.
Of course Digby nails it...
 I wouldn't think American rich people would enjoy this movie except for the fact that they persist in believing they are just salt of the earth, regular folks and will probably identify with the rebels. It's one of the United States' greatest delusions: everybody thinks they're middle class ...

Not Boston Strong

Stop being part of the great We that our media creates in order to excuse itself for not doing its real job, and for begging us to release the worst angels of our nature in time for the May sweeps.

Worcester sucks.

Funk It

                            Eddie Harris, Get On Down

Zero posting until I figure out why I can't seem to write a word about how terrible Romney would be as president (because he would be a disaster)—water is wet, fire is hot.
