  • @Michael_Lehman … to be fair, Colbert’s cracked me up often enough. But late at night? Nope. Too harsh. Mid-afternoon replay, for me. #
  • #debate08 Reminder of Twitter mashup: http://current.com/debate – and http://tweetgrid.com/grid?l=5 for multi-searching tweets #
  • #Vista Dear M$ – What makes you think I want to re-size your foolishly undersized Mixer each/every time I open it? Like *D’uhh!* #
  • Ok, this Seesmic I’ll tweet: http://snurl.com/45yyn (In reply to @TrevMurphy) #
  • #current Peek http://tweetgrid.com/trending for emergent terms / memes #
  • Looks like Current’s servers just got frabbed. #debate08 #
  • @jazzychad Shouts! http://tweetgrid.com/trending is rockin’ steady! #debate08 #
  • #current “Go out and shop”. When I was a callow young man I felt in my guts that was a righteous attitude. *Not!!* #
  • Yet.again lack of rhetorical florish. Why not “Have the choice to buy fuel-efficient car made in America.” Sorry, lack of depth. #
  • #RhetoricalFlourish Folksy: “… high off the hog. When they talk ‘pork’ they mean ham. But we’re stuck with pigs feet.” (off the cuff) #
  • #current When oligarchs talk about “pork” they mean bacon and ham. But we get stuck making soup with pigs knuckles. #
  • #debate08 If you put the ‘current’ hash at the first word then it won’t show up on screen. #
  • #debate08 Peek http://tweetgrid.com/trending for emergent terms / memes #
  • #current Not just Manhattan Project style … Roosevelt’s approach to mobilization. Planet Earth, love it or lose it. #
  • #current @moelevin sez “Obama makes no sense. Yada yada yada“. Now, really, you gonna run with that crowd?! #lame #
  • #debate08 – http://tweetgrid.com/grid?l=5 with “#current” and “#debate08” in another, and also #debate. #
  • #current McCain can’t decide if gov’t is source of all evil or legitimate right in aid of commonwealth. Likewise Palin. #
  • @weathershields Welcome to TwitterVille! A lot of us are mad. A few of us are crazed. Most are flakey one way or another. ;-) #
  • #current McCain?! Now Obama is a sabre-ratting, war-mongering hawk! Dewd, you can’t date my daughter. “Talk softly” / “Don’t talk” Meh! #
  • #current McCain sez “Talk soft” but RightWing lug-nuts burp, “Obama’s just weak. WEAK.” When can we say that crackers are crackers? #
  • #current McCain’s response to the paradoxes of global realpolik: “Maybe” … apparently “Speak truth to power” is too French for him. #
  • McCain’s right … but up here it’s Chief Warrant Officer. #
  • @marshallk My cats on the back porch wondering, “($)%W#*$” (Which is cat for “WTF?!”) #
  • @rjmoriarty I’m running http://tweetgrid.com/trending … the sheer volume washes out the lamerz. #
  • @JessieX My “Why does Obama so often miss opportunities for rhetorical flourish” = euphamism for “Blah. Freakin’ bla-yada-blah.” #
  • @evanwolf My concept is to impose “42 words” and threaten to nail those to uhhhh some set of doors on the hill. #
  • @JessieX “High off the hog”, “Pig in a poke”, “Hog wash”, “Talking turkey” … the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! ;-P #
  • @JessieX Oh-wooops, I left out “Pork barrel politics”. (Who buys pork out of a barrel these days? heh) #
  • @StevenWalling Those measures all/mostly came out of Cheney’s office, note. #
  • #current The economic situation is just the #oligarchs’ power-play … modern version of capital strike. #
  • #current Let’s talk instinctive reactions: McCain didn’t take a dignified step aside, he dashed like a schoolroom clutz. #
  • Google results … how many folk searched for “aparatchik”? Or heh knew how to spell it? #
  • @philcrissman Next: studies show vast majority experience sky as “more blue than red”. #
  • TalkingHead: “McCain didn’t change the tenure of the campaign.” Right … quite … tenure isn’t offered to campaigns. *fork/ear* #
  • @leolaporte I hear WhiteHouse Head of Communications will be coming open, though. #
  • #debate TalkingHead: “McCain camp still has tricks up there sleeve.” Ayup … Karl Rove is always in the bull pen. #
  • @JesseStay “Voting for the man” … nope. Voting for the team who’s working to get the man elected, too. #
  • @adamostrow “50 Best Catches of All Time” was on SportsTV last night. If it was tonight I might uh switched channel. #
  • @Mickeleh “Framing” really does have consequences. His “It’s not about on the job training” pissed me right off. And I usta like him. #
  • Not said: “We should be making alt-fuel cars here. Of course it’s good to have trade with Korea and Japan. But folk should have the choice.” #
  • @acarvin “Don’t be lucid and ironic. People will turn on you saying, ‘You see? He’s not a nice person!'” –Albert Camus cheers #
  • @JessieX IMNSHO municipal politics is where a body sees the real cut&thrust … not so sophistic-ated. #
  • ReTw @Mlsif: #debate08 http://snurl.com/461ms (transcript) “this time [vs ’84] not one question was on social issues. Times have changed.” #
  • Readers have their say on what other readers said: BBC’s “Reader Recommended Comments” > http://snurl.com/4620r < #
  • Current.com sez “Choose your country”, then offers EU and USA. *pfffffffffffft!* #
  • ReTw @dougslinks: “Oops! forgot the linkto free hosting: http://www.000webhost.com/52812.html ” 1st impression? Credible … plausible. #
  • @dweinberger Really, when I read your Q I found myself thinking, “Nobody. Least of all, the citizens.” #
  • @stevegillmor I’m getting spinner at newsgang.net #
  • @1938media @technosailor Some are averse to “senile and old”, some are allergic to “callowness of youth, and cynical”. To each his poison! #
  • @1938media I think there’s gonna be buzz about “that one” … though I missed it in the moment. #
  • @rhh Keep in mind, lug-nuts’ chant comes down to “Obama is just weak. WEAK.” #
  • @technosailor Bernie Glassman Sensei insisted on having “Not knowing” as one of the precepts. zenpeacemakers.org #
  • @1938media Yiss. So you gotta factor in “young and out of it”. Ergo, Occam’s razor, drop the crap, leave out the “old”. *friggin’ H* #
  • Snotty sophists figure their shit don’t stink cuz they got WebRep. A pox on your houses! Hi-function autists, iz whot. Neo-thugs. #rant #
  • Guess what, dewwwwd, that you’re clever and ignorant makes you more noxious than if you were just ignorant. #
  • @JessieX Oooooh, Louisiana-style chicken nuggets … you know where my heart is! *grin* (yaa, but is it Cajun? _Chui ‘cadjien, moi._) #
  • @StevenWalling “but the buck stops with the President” when/iff PoTUS dare talk straight to the power-brokers who bought his ticket. #
  • @rjmoriarty I’ve been pimping http://tweetgrid.com/trending since I found it … shouts to @jazzychad! #
  • @jjprojects Gee golly, if that’s how you react then the Roves and Wolfowitz’s of the world are rubbing their hands in glee. #
  • #Vista Tonight running many FF instancesw/T’bird, and TWhirl, and TWDeck, things only locked up 3 or 4 times. W/3Gig RAM. *under-whelmed* #
  • #RealityCheck To my American friends: folkz, you ain’t St. Peter and the doors of the White House ain’t the heavenly gates. Chill. #hubris #
  • @Mickeleh Q: “Which button should we be pushing?” (Hint: Yes, /that one/.) #
  • @adamostrow I like “Arkansas” with no Rs. ;-) (Ever heard it Ar Can Ziss? *snort*) #

  • @timoreilly Talkin’ flickr tonight … credentials as contrarian? ;) #
  • @jjprojects Paradigmatic of true aparatchik, world round. Speaking of which, I wonder where Henry K spent his evening. #
  • @baratunde Canadian PM (who shall remain nameless *cough*) points out we’re not having the same bank crisis. Right … just stock crisis. #
  • ReTw @xxdesmus: ReTw @rampok: New Obama Logo (ROFL) http://www.flickr.com/photos/mattmay/2923797716/ haaaahaha! #
  • @ xxdesmus Sadly, it doesn’t quite work as Twitter background. *E for effort?* #
  • @gapingvoid I set out early this morning to clear space for heh “a night off”. *A life? Oh yaa, had on uh’them once.* #
  • @benbarren Lovely … “purity of concept”. Up this way I’d use our flag and heh sell “beaver tails”. (Yes, it’s a take-out fast food item.) #
  • @hober Passed as in gone, gone beyond? Yikes. Mebbe you could use your webiness to co-ord the kids on LJ to create something? #
  • @1938media I’d turn on my heels and walk out … which likely would suit you fine. But … what a look on your face! #
  • Show me a red-neck cracker asshole with intellect and I’ll show you a red-neck cracker asshole. *Left-libertarian, am I.* #
  • TalkingHead: “Obama was nearly hawkish on Pakistan.” Yaa, and McCain was all “Talk softly &tc &tc” while making O’ both weak and loud. #
  • @DonRiep *cough* I heard that. “Little pitchers got big ears!” ;) #
  • #ThatOne Hard to do simple things, sometimes. New Twitter BG > http://twitter.com/bentrem < from > http://snurl.com/4664a < #
  • @technosailor There’s a deep-background story in there … that buncha fat cats took power 2 or 3 years ago by throwing elbows. #
  • #Palin #BrainDamage #LugNuts Her supporters react to “New York Times” exactly as they do to “domestic terrorist”. Parley-vous #borg? #
  • Know what #Palin hosts? Hate-ins … read George Orwell. Palin will prolly support faith-based Department of Truth and Peace. #matrix #

  • Ok, so McCain can’t keep track of how many houses he owns. But “I’ve driven American my whole life” means 3 of his cars are foreign made?! #

  • He cudda said, “I know we can. Because that’s who we are. And I know that’s what we do.” But clipped it. Is he in a hurry?! #
  • McCain’s “my fellow prisoners” … Freudian slip? With Rove-types above him, and Palin *gasp!* at his side, maybe that’s how he feels. #
