</td><td valign="top">You are a geek. Good for you! Considering the endless complexity of the universe, as well as whatever discipline you happen to be most interested in, you'll never be bored as long as you have a good book store, a net connection, and thousands of dollars worth of expensive equipment. Assuming you're a technical geek, you'll be able to afford it, too. If you're not a technical geek, you're geek enough to mate with a technical geek and thereby get the needed dough. Dating tip: Don't date a geek of the same persuasion as you. You'll constantly try to out-geek the other.</td>

I'm downloading the gospel song of the day from Interesting Monstah, and at some point (I'm on dial-up at home, so it takes a while) I look at the list of open windows, and one of them says "66% of This Too Will Pass"

Well, I certainly hope so.

Remember I said I maybe shouldn't post while I'm angry?

California GINO (green in name only) candidate attempts to nullify Democratic gubernatorial victory in California in favor of a Republican takeover

GOP strategist Sal Russo, who is helping organize the movement, said Green participation "would be almost a fatal blow to Davis' attempts to try and demonize the recall . . . that would clearly take it out of partisanship."

Yeah, because unlike the Republicans, the Green party in California has all sorts of goals that don't take a back seat to fucking the Democrats.

Or visa versa.

So now, while the Attorney General of the United States is attempting to grab the power to strip citizenship from the President's political opponents without due process (thereby leaving them open for indefinite imprisonment without charges or a lawyer or notification of the family and deportation to a friendly country where they're allowed to torture "suspects,") the diehard progressive leadership of the Green party of California is honing in with laser-like focus on the most important risk to America today - the possibility that the state with the largest electoral college vote will not be controlled by an ally of George W. Bush for the '04 elections.

You know, I've always had a weakness for righteous fervor. I hope, therefore, that those "progressives" who have chosen to spoil, since it's far easier to offer up other people's lives than one's own commitment to long-term grass roots change, will understand, with the same openness of spirit and heart which they demand as a right from the Democrats whose party they are determined to destroy, that at this point I hope with all my heart (absent a change of tactics which leads to their building an effective grassroots movement from the bottom up, which could in far less than a decade have all of the positive influence on the national debate _and_ on the crippled Democratic party that the christian right has been wildly successful in wielding for the dark side) that they go down in flames and disappear from the national discourse in favor of a progressive movement who can still the voice of their inner spiteful toddler.

I imagine I'm off a few sidebars at this point, but I'm willing to accept that as a fair trade for having a bodyguard that can fit into a booth at the hell diner.
