It's Time For Conservatives To Step Up
With a president in the White House who is continuously thumbing his nose at the constitution, where is the conservative voice calling for impeachment? Where are the Kenneth Starr's?
You Know Damn Well...
...that if Bill Clinton disallowed his staff from testifying before congress, the torches and pitchforks would be waving. And yet, our very basis for being a democracy in this country is being trampled on, and I hear a few mumblings, but no action from the conservative side of the aisle. The president's lapdog from my great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Arlen Specter is even defending the president's rights in this!?!?
The current Attorney General has clearly lied to Congress, and the President still fully supports him. If it wasn't obvious that Gonzalez was lying after his latest testimony before congress, they now have a memo (de-classified by the White House a while back) that shows our top attorney in a bold-faced lie.
Bush won't allow Karl Rove, Harriet Miers or Josh Bolten to testify, claiming executive privelege? What kind of bullshit is that?
You folks from conservative states...you may hear your congress-folk blustering on about the bad president and the bad war, but when it comes time to put their words into action?...nothing!
How can you stand by watching your ever-loving democracy be shit on like this? I mean really, WWJD?
I was able to finish the back of the Aran pullover, and start on the front.
I think this will turn out to be quite a nice sweater, and I will look forward to wearing it on cold Winter days this coming cold season (assuming we actually have one).
An infrequent reader sent me a link to her iPod/MP3 book that she has narrated herself. I warn you before you go there, that you shouldn't listen to the first chapter unless you want to listen to all nine. The narrative is incredibly compelling.
I would be very interested to hear what others think of this style of "writing." I absolutely adored it, and I can't say I've ever read anything like it before.
And if by chance, you listen and don't like it, you should absolutely NEVER take one of my recommendations for what to read. I found this audio book completely sublime in every possible way.

Actually, I haven't had one hit on the word, as far as I can tell from my stats counter. I don't think most porn-hungry men would type in that word. Most would type in pussy or if they wanted to get technical, might go so far as to type in vagina...but clitoris...not so much.
Sandy asks, "Which photo is the closest to the color of the Aran?"
The only picture so far that actually shows the color of the yarn at all accurately is the post of July 13th.
