Paul Krassner: at it since the late '50s (Just Another Blog's™ barely been at anything since the late '50s) and, via Sucky Gôögle News Feed to the right, Krassner continues at it, on HuffPo.

Since his unceremonious departure from the House in 1998, Gingrich has become Newt Inc. -- one part provocateur, one part entrepreneur, who stirs debate in his party and in journalistic circles, gets Sunday talk show invites and draws audiences on the lecture circuit. A presidential flirtation helps Gingrich further raise his profile, push his ideas and sell his books.Wonder why? From ABC News/WaPo 18-21 July. 403 polled. Rudy Giuliani 34% John McCain 16% Fred Thompson 14% Mitt Romney 8% Newt Gingrich 7% Tommy Thompson 3% Mike Huckabee 2% Duncan Hunter 2% Ron Paul 2% Sam Brownback 2% Tom Tancredo 1% None of these (vol.) 5% Wouldn't vote (vol.) 1% Unsure 5% We didn't know how poorly Mittens is doing, but it warms our evil heart. We're none too happy about Rudy G. atop the pile though.
Four decades after John Lennon said the Beatles were 'bigger than Jesus,' the Living TV Paranormal Report 2002 suggests the supernatural has overtaken religion as a central belief in people's lives.
Forty-seven per cent of people in the UK say they believe in intelligent life on another planet, 57 per cent in ghosts, and 67 per cent in the power of psychics.
Only 36 per cent say they believe in the idea of a God.

Do tell Just Another Blog™ which you think is more important, mental health for the great American unwashed, or renewing your permission to drive around while getting fat, spewing smoke & financing Bin Laden & Wahhabi madrasas?
Remeber, every mile (or kilometer) you drive puts US$ in this dude's bank.
*Or whatever the fuck it's called in whichever toilet of a state or province (Hello, Canadian friends!) you live in.

In better days. From WASHINGTON Life.
"Not the TSP?" responded Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y. "Come on. If you say it's about other, that implies not. Now say it or not."
"It was not," Gonzales answered. "It was about other intelligence activities."
A four-page memo from the national intelligence director's office shows that the White House briefing with the eight lawmakers on March 10, 2004, was about the terror
surveillance program, or TSP.
Perhaps the man known as "Fredo" will end up on the other side of this fence.

Just Another Blog™ has no reaction whatsoever to the big fucking deal "YouTube"
Hey Bouff,Boy howdy, you know it!! That's why there's an entire label/category for this "web log" called: "Blogger Bitching."
I had some pithy comments to make about your Jonah Goldberg post..... but fucking Blogspot won't accept my comments!
Tell those cheesy fuckers to get their fucking blog program working!
Indeed, I leave this Saturday for our annual Goldberg Family peregrination West.We don't know which parts of the West, but here in L. A. we're worried. Just Another Blog™ does not make Chee-tos™ a regular part of its diet, but those in the West who do are advised to stock up now.
More about Jonah's fans. The younger they are, the easier it is to influence them.

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
