!! OMG, how political: Sonic Youth !!

In their own “town hall” debate, the members of Sonic Youth candidly discuss who they’re voting for and why. I think it’s more of an agreement than a debate, but who cares? See the whole discussion HERE on ECSTATIC PEACE.
Also, on a side note, I might be watching Glitter while I’m writing this. Just so you know.

!! OMG, she spoke the truth: Peggy Noonan !!

peggy-noonan-serious.jpg
I never, ever, thought I would say this… But I agree completely with Republican superbitch Peggy Noonan’s column in Friday’s Wall Street Journal.
She discusses quite eloquently the dumbing down of American politics, and though she doesn’t go so far as other Republicans like Colin Powell or Christopher Buckley to endorse Barack Obama, her harsh words for Sarah Palin make her position quite clear:

In the end the Palin candidacy is a symptom and expression of a new vulgarization in American politics. It’s no good, not for conservatism and not for the country. And yes, it is a mark against John McCain, against his judgment and idealism.
I gather this week from conservative publications that those whose thoughts lead them to criticism in this area are to be shunned, and accused of the lowest motives. In one now-famous case, Christopher Buckley was shooed from the great magazine his father invented. In all this, the conservative intelligentsia are doing what they have done for five years. They bitterly attacked those who came to stand against the Bush administration. This was destructive. If they had stood for conservative principle and the full expression of views, instead of attempting to silence those who opposed mere party, their movement, and the party, would be in a better, and healthier, position.
At any rate, come and get me, copper.

Will there be any pundits left in the McCain camp by November 4?
BONUS: Watch Amy Poehler perform the brilliant Sarah Palin rap on this week’s SNL after the jump.

!! OMG, Florida: Say ‘no’ to amendment 2 !!


With all the attention on California and the incendiary Proposition 8, I didn’t even hear about Florida’s Amendment 2, which is seeking to ban same-sex marriage thusly:

“Inasmuch as marriage is the legal union of only one man and one woman as husband and wife, no other legal union that is treated as marriage or the substantial equivalent thereof shall be valid or recognized.”

If you’re registered in Florida, please vote “no” on Amendment 2, and anyone please consider donating money to the “Say No 2” campaign here. Florida law requires the amendment to be approved by a 60% popular vote, so this one will be close.
