I don’t know for sure but I like to think Fally Ipupa might translate to firedog.


Late Night FDL: Tim Goeglein is John Galt, and other original conservative pensées

By: Friday February 29, 2008 8:02 pm

Tim Goeglein, according to the Washington Post, is “central to how this president operates — and wins elections.” Until recently, he also contributed thoughts on the nature of things to a newspaper in Indiana. Unfortunately, neither the thoughts nor the words used to express them were, not to put too fine a point on it, his.

Rule Of Law Still Clinging To Life

I’m sure it surprises no-one that AG Mukasey, Chuck Schumer’s handpicked, oh-so-principled replacement for AG-Squared, is totally on board with Operation Maximum Stonewall. Fortunately, Speaker Pelosi is not willing to let go.

While We Are Asking Questions About Rev. Hagee…

By: Friday February 29, 2008 5:01 pm

There are few things in life as enjoyable as an enormous belly laugh. Not just the little snickery kind, but the sort that you can’t stop, with tears running down your cheeks, and the occasional snort as you try to suck in and out the air past the loud laughter. If I had a dollar for every time Molly Ivins work forced a loud, public guffaw out of me as I was reading, I’d never have to worry about my 401(k)…

Dueling Fear Ads

Within hours after Hillary Clinton’s campaign released its “3:00 a.m. phone call” ad, Barack Obama’s campaign released his own response. It’s going to be a very interesting campaign.

The Spin I’m In: Brazilian Bubble Pods

My band The Stellar Moments and I had a great time in Brazil last week. The shows in Sao Jose dos Campos and Sao Paulo were a blast and we got to meet a lot of cool people. Rock and Roll is very big in Brazil. The fans are totally passionate and un-jaded.

Nation Article Gets Results on Blackwater, So Let’s Celebrate, Okay?

Sending the wrong message to politicians who respond positively and do what you ask them to do makes it difficult for online activists who are going to keep doing this long after this election is over. If politicians are going to be slapped in the face for their efforts, what’s the upside for them?

Stirring McCain’s Hagee Pot

By: Friday February 29, 2008 10:20 am

Tim Russert thinks Barack Obama is answerable for the opinions of Louis Farrakhan. If that’s the case, then why isn’t he pressing John McCain about radical religious extremist uber-nut John Hagee? Hagee was, if you’ll remember, the guy who said that Hurricaine Katrina was God’s revenge for a gay pride parade. He thinks war with Iran is essential so as to bring about Armageddon (when you can say bye-bye to the Jews). But as Glenn Greenwald says, he’s a white Christian evangelical bigot, and therefore entitled to respect from the pundit class.

Scott’s superb work on the Siegelman case, the long-term effects of politicization of the Department of Justice and the continuing ripples from the USAtty firings and other issues

McCain’s New Iraq Spin

By: Friday February 29, 2008 7:00 am

It seems like every day there’s a new one, doesn’t it?

Of Mr. Obama’s criticism that America should never have gone to war against Iraq, Mr. McCain said: “That’s history, that’s the past.”

“What we should be talking about is what we’re going to be doing now,” he told 600 workers gathered in a large manufacturing hall festooned with flags and orange Texas Instruments banners.

Erm, in politics, “the past” is what we
