To the best of Just Another Blog™'s recollection (& a minimal amount of research) no candidate from the House of Representatives has even been nominated for the presidency in this or the previous century. (Please correct us if we're wrong, but be kind about it.) Of late, the gig has been going mostly to governors or recent ex-governors, G. Herbert W. Bush being the exception (like his son, the current Murderer-in-Chief, G. H. W. was a legacy, having been R. W. Reagan's veep). Indeed, Lyndon Johnson was the last pres. elected to have been a senator w/o gubernatorial experience, and of course he had been the vice-pres.
Few of those nominated have even had much House experience, other than G. R. Ford, and we all know how he got the Republican nomination in '76. Virtually all those nominated by either party have been senators or govs. in their immediately previous governmental positions, except Johnson, Ford & Bush I.
What Just Another Blog™ is gettting at is that Ron Paul, even if he weren't the virtual definition of "wing-nut," has the proverbial snowball's chance in

As good an excuse as any to share a favorite "Humor in Uniform" joke:
Henry (Does anyone ever call him "Hank"?) Rollins used to live down the hill from Just Another Blog™ & friend/one-time musical associate Mr. Mike in the Swish Alps. And Just Another Blog™ saw HR & Janeane Garofalo @ Trader Joe's (WeHo) a few weeks ago, just before their show @ the Silent Movie on Fairfax. (Is HR stalking this blog? It seems like everywhere we go, there he is. That's twice w/in 20 yrs., fer cryin' out loud!) That's a pair of celebrities who deserve to be celebrated, getting their own pre-show snacks or what have you, rather than ordering some flunky to run out & get stuff for them. And on that basis we direct you to an interview w/ Mr. Rollins on an Australian gay website. (Homos? In Oz? Who knew? Thought Rupert Murdoch had squashed that sort of thing like a bug before buying himself American citizenship & coming here to put a stop to that sort of thing in This Great Land of Ours™.) Here's the meat, concerning "metrosexuals":
"I am not in a position to judge people but from their appearance, they look like they like to consume and accessorise," he says. "It seems like a lot of work, putting stuff in your hair or spending longer than an hour a year buying clothes. When they start hurting kids or punching old ladies, then it's time to be concerned, but if it's just cologne and shoes, what's the harm?"
*Not to be confused @ any time w/ H. R. of Bad Brains (though they're both from Wash., D. C.). Or H. R. Giger.

The US is desperate to implement its century-old dream of world hegemony and the elimination of Russia as its principal obstacle to the full control of Eurasia.
And on a more immediate, physical level:
The Russian planes, which are now used for surveillance, were shadowed from their base in the Arctic Circle by two Norwegian F18s before being met by the RAF planes. They turned back before reaching British airspace.
--RAF dude, from The Scotsman.
Fortunately, diplomacy continues:
British Foreign Secretary David Miliband said on Monday that Britain would expel four diplomats from the Russian embassy in London due to Russia's refusal to extradite a main suspect in the poisoning case, Andrei Lugovoi, who was accused of murdering Litvinenko.--People's Daily

Just Another Blog™ can not adequately express its joy that the Crusader Nations have, as of this typing (could change in an instant) two separate zones in which to determine the best way to exterminate those with a skin tone somewhat darker than that of the majority of their populations. Wheee!
And good thing, too, because next year the Typhoon will deploy to Afghanistan for its combat debut. And in Afghanistan, as in Iraq, guns are often the weapon of choice for close air support missions.
Last year I was embedded with a Marine fighter squadron in western Iraq that used its guns frequently. One female pilot even gleefully described literally chasing down insurgents with gunfire as they fled an engagement.

World O' Crap brings to the world's attention the latest, and possibly most inane, bit o' drivel ever from The Smarmy Creep Who is Always Wrong™, William "Wanna-Be Killer" Kristol, who for some reason is given a platform by the WaPo.
Greenbelt, Md.: You have been wrong about every important prediction you have made about the outcome of this war and this presidency -- why should anyone pay attention to you now?
William Kristol: Feel free not to!

Meanwhile, Metallica's new album is due out in early 2008, with bassist Robertt Trujillo telling Blabbermouth: "There's a lot of everything, man. There's speed on this. There's a couple of tracks where you're gonna go, 'Wow!' and I know you're gonna like it because it has the flavor of the old. But it has this kind of groove and power behind it that I think is us today."(From the "Only form of life lower than a musician is an actor" file.)
Meat of the matter:
The Red Mosque crisis symbolizes the devil's bargain Pakistan's ruling elites have struck with Islamic radicals since independence from Britain, a tacit understanding that has turned this nuclear-armed state into a terrifying cauldron of instability. Cracking down on the fundies could lead to civil war. Doing nothing, the government's usual approach, almost certainly will.

Dear Brother/Sister's in Lord Christ Jesus. Calvary greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,I am former Mr Ahmedaliza Wasilat ,now Mr Christain Davis,,I am now a new Christian convert,suffering from long time cancer of the heart. From all indications, my condition is really deteriorating and is quite obvious that I may not live more than six months, because the cancer stage has gotten to a very severe stage.My late wife was killed during the Gulf war, and during the period of our marriage we had a son who was also killed in a cold blood during the Gulf war.My late wife was very wealthy and after her death,I inherited all our business and wealth. My personal physician told me that I may not live for more than six months and I am so scared about this. So, I now decided to divide part of this wealth, by contributing to the development of evangelism in Africa,America, Europe and Asian Countries. This mission which will no doubt be tasking had made me to recenlty relocated to Israel,where I live presently. I selected your church after visiting the website for this purpose and prayed over it, I am willing to donate the sum of 19.500,000.00 Million US Dollars to your Church/Ministry for the development of evangelism and also as aids for the less privileged around you.Just Another Blog would like to know to which "website/church" this fucking parasite was referring. And: Is being killed "in a cold blood" anything like being "in a cold sweat," James Brown-stylee?
Just Another Blog™ went to add Limebag ex-pat Mick Farren's blog (DOC 40) to the Just Another Bogroll™ today, and thanks to Deviant Mick (& hey, far as Just Another Blog's™ concerned, you may stay here w/ the rest of us deviants) we find that not only is today Le Quatorze Juillet (see item immediately below) it's Woody Guthrie's birthday.
Therefore, Just Another Blog™ urges all its fellow citizens to get down to the prisons, free all the prisoners, and separate the heads of the upper classes from the bodies of the upper classes! Now! The French did it 218 years ago today, & Just Another Blog™ hears their health system is even better than the Canadians'. What do we have to lose? Go ahead, we'll be right behind you, just gotta get the pitchfork & some more hand grenades.

It's from the L. A.Times. But, at least in this case, that doesn't make it any less true. Meat of the matter:
But Google is not our friend. Schmidt's iGoogle vision of the future is not altruistic, and his company is not a nonprofit group dedicated to the realization of human self-understanding.Save yourselves before it's too late.
While Just Another Blog™ takes a back seat to no blog in its firm, uncompromising stance against religion, theism & all other mystical, superstitious whatnot, we are inclined to believe that one Christopher Hitchens might have gone just a leettle bit overboard in his disgust for/fear of the Muslim other, to the extent that he actually seems to swallow virtually all of the current administration's horseshit vis-à-vis its schoolyard bully reaction to 11 Sept. 2001, that is, picking the closest weakling (Iraq) & "throwing it against the wall to prove that we mean business," in the immoral (no, there is not supposed to be a "t" in there) words of Michael Ledeen.

Looks as if there won't be anywhere in This Great Nation of Ours™ (48 contiguous states division) that will be less than 80°F today (exceptions: Maine/parts of Vermont, parts of N. Dakota/Montana). In 20 or 30 yrs. Just Another Blog™ will have the sweet, blessed relief of death, and all of you stupid ignorant fucks will be stewing in your own wastes (except those of you who will actually be on fire!!!) Ha ha ha. (Hope it doesn't take 20-30 yrs. Next week would be nice.)
Fuck Every One Of Them: Nixon, Ford, Reagan, & Both The Bush Boys!! (Not Much Sympathy For Carter & Clinton, Either, But...)
Venturing into that room, visitors learned that Watergate, which provoked a constitutional crisis and became an enduring byword for abuses of executive power, was really a "coup" engineered by Nixon enemies. The exhibit accused Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein — without evidence — of "offering bribes" to further their famous coverage.
"Everybody who visited it, who knew the first thing about history, thought it was a joke," one Nixon scholar, David Greenberg, said of the Watergate gallery. "You didn't know whether to laugh or cry."
Here's a surprise: One of Tricky Dick Nixon's biggest fans is this pathetic fuck:
Yet from the start, the library had trouble being taken seriously. Its first director, Hugh Hewitt, announced that researchers deemed unfriendly would be banned from the archives, singling out the Washington Post's Bob Woodward as a candidate for exclusion. Scholars cried foul; Hewitt revoked the plan.
What a fucking joke Mr. Hewitt is. Yet not funny in the least.
In 1974, Congress mandated that his White House materials be kept in the Washington area, amid fears that Watergate-related documents would be destroyed.
Yes, it was believed that the Nix's pals would destroy history to cover his pathetic pseudo-Quaker ass.
Instead, coward Gerald R. Ford pardoned Nixon, setting the precedent that no matter what crimes a president (or vice-president) commits against the constitution or the American people (& people from many other nations as well) the only impeachable offenses are personal/sexual offenses. And fuckhead Ford provided employment to such parasitic scum as current vice-president (non-executive branch) Richard Cheney and torture queen Donald Rumsfeld, who, after somehow becoming corporate muckety-mucks when their party was out of power, returned to Washington to continue screwing America when the second Bush was selected by the Supreme Court to be Shitheel-in-Chief. Not to mention the senile suckwad Reagan, who permitted Iran-Contra and other criminal activities, then he &/or the first Bush pardoned many of those involved, freeing them to participate in the current regime's attempts to undermine the constitution. Remember Nixon's line: "If the president does it, it's not illegal." Wrong, wrong, wrong. If we can't impeach these deeply, seriously disturbed psychological basket-cases, Just Another Blog™ can only hope they will be tried as the vicious, violent criminals that they are once they've left office. (As a deeply, seriously disturbed blog, Just Another Blog™ can perhaps entertain the concept that these people need only to be committed to a mental institution for the remainder of their natural lives, to prevent further harm to themselves or others. Though Just Another Blog™ suspects the Bush & Cheney children are beyond any help anyway, & we're not too sure about the nation's psychological health either.)

Count Gottfried von Bismarck, whose life of privileged excess as a descendant of Germany's "Iron Chancellor" was clouded by two deaths at or after his parties, has died in London. He was 44.
Dr. Paul Knapman, presiding over an inquest at Westminster Coroner's Court, said one room of the apartment contained a "bizarre" assortment of items, including a large rubber tarpaulin on the floor, towels, lubricants, bottles of vodka and buckets of sex toys.
