Shock and Awe Awe Baby! That's Great!

More Names Possible in D.C. Escort Case
Associated Press Writer

"She never kept a black book. She kept telephone records," said Montgomery Blair Sibley, an attorney who represents Palfrey in civil matters....

Randall Tobias, head of the Bush administration's foreign aid programs, abruptly resigned Friday, the day ABC reported that Tobias had used Palfrey's escort firm, Pamela Martin & Associates. Tobias told the network he received only services that were legal, such as massages.

Tobias is the second person to be publicly labeled a Palfrey customer. In court papers, Palfrey listed Harlan Ullman, a military strategist who authored the combat strategy known as "shock and awe," as a client. Ullman has said the assertion is not worthy of a response.
Gives a WHOLE new meaning to the term, "shock and awe".

Well folks as this case heats up I won't be laying on my back. Got my popcorn ready for the upcoming show.

Here's to a happy ending!

Who knew that GOP stood for Get On a Prostitute?

In general I wouldn't care who bangs what. However, since this administration and the whole bloody Republican party have been on this "sanctity of marriage", "family values" sanctimonious bullshit, well... Its just so much fun when stuff like this happens.

Senior Official Linked to Escort Service Resigns

Deputy Secretary of State Randall L. Tobias submitted his resignation Friday, one day after confirming to ABC News that he had been a customer of a Washington, D.C. escort service whose owner has been charged by federal prosecutors with running a prostitution operation.

Tobias, 65, director of U.S. Foreign Assistance and administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), had previously served as the ambassador for the President's Emergency Fund for AIDS Relief.
The escort service bore the law firm inspired moniker of Pamela Martin and Associates. Here's a review form Judy's Book:
Where a Republican can go for descreet service and full release...
Five Stars

Dickless C.
It's getting tough to get one's groove on in this town if you are a Republican... However, this service has shown to be descreet, and the women are super. Ya' gotta have the dough if you want the 'full' service...

I Forgot About Them Until......

Ah the 90's! L'Amour's rock club in Brooklyn, teased hair, nail polish, eye liner.... AND THOSE WERE THE GUYS! If I had a nickle for every Jani Lane jacket and Poison look-alike I almost mistook for a girl... well I would have a lot more time to blog cause I'd be rich.

Collectively this group of rock fans became known as poseurs. This vid below came near the end of that fashion and musical train crash.

These four girls barreled through the 90's rock scene like a runaway train. They rocked hard and partied harder. They were brash, loud, and as for the four lady leads hot as all get out. They were sexy, they wore leather, cutoffs, and loads of "F*ck" me red lipstick.

Ah The Classics Never Really Die!

They get their own web page.

Quite possibly the best show aired in Air America's short history, Morning Sedition introduced us to such characters as Sammy the Stem Cell and Cardinal
Milf Cardinal Milfington of the recently disgraced Diocese of "insert town here". The creator of these comedic gems was Jim Earl.

Soooooo..... withourt further ado, whether you are a fan or a Morning Sedition virgin, here is Jim Earl and His Big Page of Crap.

Hey an their is a hangout for those who never got over Morning Sedition's cancellation: Morning Seditionists!

Oh a map can tell you a lot. The lighter area represents the furthest extent of Kurdish territorial claims. Hence the following story should be no surprise.

According to a Turkish language website I found this post's title translates as "son of a bitch". I was afraid this was going to happen back before we invaded Iraq. The Turks are pissed with the de-facto independence of "Kurdistan" and really peeved with the aforementioned pseudo-country's harboring of Turkish-Kurd separatists.

This could get really nasty really quick. The first problem is Turkey is a NATO member, an ally, so we cannot hit them. Then you have the Iraqi Kurds, who are the only ally we have in Iraq, we can't hit them. However, a lack of action on our part, or any perceived favoritism could blow the Iraqi kettle straight past bubbling over into "Old Faithful" territory.

Lose the Kurds and ANY real or perceived control that we have over events in Iraq are over, done, and finished.
Turkish Army Seeks OK for Iraq Raids

Associated Press Writer

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - Turkey's military asked the government Thursday to approve attacks on Kurdish rebels in northern Iraq, signaling growing frustration over a lack of action against the guerrillas by Iraqi and U.S. forces.

Such action could put an overstretched U.S. military in the middle of a fight between two crucial partners, the Turks and the Iraqi Kurds. A recent surge in Kurdish attacks in southeastern Turkey has increased the pressure on Turkey's military to act. ``

An operation into Iraq is necessary,'' Gen. Yasar Buyukanit told reporters.
Buyukanit said the military already has launched operations against separatists in Turkey's predominantly Kurdish southeastern region bordering Iraq.
Understanding Turkish politics means understanding the constitutional and historical power it has wielded in the modern state. The countries first president, after the dismemberment of the Ottoman Empire, Mustafa Kemal "Attaturk", established these mechanisms in the Turkish constitution. Since then the military has toppled civilian governments by either supplanting them as they did in 1980. More recently they have exerted more subtle power by driving PM's from office, through the army's influence in Parliament.

PM Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is a chameleon in Turkish politics, he has extended the dove of peace to traditional enemy Greece, by becoming the first Turkish PM to make an official state visit. In the process he helped remove the largest barrier to Turkey's admission into the EU, Greece's opposition. However, he has shown that he will not tolerate the Kurdish separatists within or outside of the Turkish Republic.

As recently as April 9, 2007 MSNBC via the Financial Time Reported:
Turkey warned Iraqi Kurdish leaders on Monday they would be "crushed" if they carried out a threat to stir up trouble among Turkish Kurds, as clashes with separatists in south-eastern Turkey claimed at least 20 lives.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey's prime minister, reacted angrily to weekend comments by Massoud Barzani, leader of the Kurdish autonomous region in northern Iraq. Mr Barzani has set off a political and media storm in Ankara with his threat to "interfere" in Turkey's restive Kurdish provinces if Ankara did not stop "interfering" in his region.

Further complicating the plot is the upcoming Turkish election and NO Turkish politician wants to be perceived as weak on an issue that has cost so much blood and treasure.

Bridge Over The River Quagmire.

Associated Press via MSNBC

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A suicide truck bomb exploded on a major bridge in Baghdad early Thursday, collapsing the steel structure and sending cars toppling into the Tigris River below, police and witnesses said. At least 10 people were killed.

Hospital officials said another 26 were injured, and police were trying to rescue as many as 20 people whose cars plummeted off the al-Sarafiya bridge.

Across the U.S. wingnuts are repeating this to themselves: "The Surge is working, The Surge is working. "

Sad really.

At least 10 people were killed in that incident.

A LHC Exclusive!!!!!

Many who saw this live on CSPAN or saw it later on Olbermann felt the same disquieting feeling in their stomachs. There lurking in the woods, for no apparent reason, was Cheney. Was he working the remote? Practicing to be an extra in the Sopranos, for the stalker sub-plot? Did he have a senior moment and just randomly walk out onto the lawn? Did he remember to wear pants?

No friends their was a darker more sinister motive at hand. We here at Left Handed Compliment are now able to reveal that dark purpose.

When we zoomed in on the picture and hovered over where Cheney was hiding, amongst the shrubbery, here is what we found!

Disturbing? Yes. Somehow we should have known all along.

Okay maybe an inappropriately humorous introduction to some really scary shit. Attaturk of Rising Hegemon and Eschaton fame, posted this Orwellian tale at the latter.
The story of Professor Walter F. Murphy, emeritus of Princeton University
Full text at Balkinization
"When I tried to use the curb-side check in at the Sunport, I was denied a boarding pass because I was on the Terrorist Watch list. I was instructed to go inside and talk to a clerk. At this point, I should note that I am not only the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence (emeritus) but also a retired Marine colonel. I fought in the Korean War as a young lieutenant, was wounded, and decorated for heroism. I remained a professional soldier for more than five years and then accepted a commission as a reserve office, serving for an additional 19 years."

"I presented my credentials from the Marine Corps to a very polite clerk for American Airlines. One of the two people to whom I talked asked a question and offered a frightening comment: "Have you been in any peace marches? We ban a lot of people from flying because of that." I explained that I had not so marched but had, in September, 2006, given a lecture at Princeton, televised and put on the Web, highly critical of George Bush for his many violations of the Constitution. "That'll do it," the man said. "
No further comment necessary, this speaks for itself.

Wrong Hole George, Please Let This Be A Joke

When I first read this article I thought, well actually hoped it was some sort of belated April Fool's gag. Maybe this was a piece from the Onion that the Detroit News accidentally picked up. I still don't know and I still hold out hope that the POTUS isn't this big of an idiot. That being said I still tremble at the stories that came out of Shrub's trip to the Catepillar plant.

With George's rather colorful past, one wonders how he didn't learn that you don't just shove it into any hole that is available. We may now have an explanation for that uncomfortable smile Laura wears.

Plug it in, fire it up, Mr. President
The Detroit News
Credit Ford Motor Co. CEO Alan Mulally with saving the leader of the free world from self-immolation.

Mulally told journalists at the New York auto show that he intervened to prevent President Bush from plugging an electrical cord into the hydrogen tank of Ford's hydrogen-electric plug-in hybrid at the White House last week. Ford wanted to give the Commander-in-Chief an actual demonstration of the innovative vehicle, so the automaker arranged for an electrical outlet to be installed on the South Lawn and ran a charging cord to the hybrid. However, as Mulally followed Bush out to the car, he noticed someone had left the cord lying at the rear of the vehicle, near the fuel tank.

"I just thought, 'Oh my goodness!' So, I started walking faster, and the President walked faster and he got to the cord before I did. I violated all the protocols. I touched the President. I grabbed his arm and I moved him up to the front," Mulally said. "I wanted the president to make sure he plugged into the electricity, not into the hydrogen This is all off the record, right?"

NYT: The New Miss Blogo- Manners

Yes folks the newspaper that helped bring you the Iraq War and all the fun and frolic that has entails is really worried about the nasty blogosphere. While they were jiggling for the Shrub administration like a $10 crack whore bargaining down to a fiver cause they needed the hit, the problem the WHOLE time was us of course. Both left and right were letting words of mass destruction across the internets and allowing anonymous users comment on the world and sometimes just being belligerent assholes.

It is nice to see the Times has its eyes firmly on the important issues of our day, rather than unpleasant shit like Iraq, or Afghanistan, or Darfur, or atrocious working conditions, or......

A Call for Manners in the World of Nasty Blogs

Is it too late to bring civility to the Web?

The conversational free-for-all on the Internet known as the blogosphere can be a prickly and unpleasant place. Now, a few high-profile figures in high-tech are proposing a blogger code of conduct to clean up the quality of online discourse...

A recent outbreak of antagonism among several prominent bloggers “gives us an opportunity to change the level of expectations that people have about what’s acceptable online,” said Mr. O’Reilly, who posted the preliminary recommendations last week on his company blog ( Mr. Wales then put the proposed guidelines on his company’s site (, and is now soliciting comments in the hope of creating consensus around what constitutes civil behavior online.

Why is This Important?

The answer is: Its NOT! NOT! NOT!
Romney defends lack of hunting license
By Glen Johnson, Associated Press Writer | April 7, 2007

BOSTON --Officials in the four states where Mitt Romney has lived say the Republican presidential contender, who calls himself a lifelong hunter, never took out a license.

Romney says that's because he has seldom hunted where he needed one.

Questions about his hunting activities trailed Romney this week after he remarked at a campaign stop that he has been a hunter nearly all his life. The next day, his campaign said Romney had been hunting only twice, once as a teenager in Idaho and again last year with GOP donors in Georgia.
Mitt, outside of his name, has bigger problems than this. His flip-flopping, defenders would say evolving, positions on social issues far out way whether it is Wabbit Season or Duck Season.

This non-issue is just more fuel for the Wicker Man type bonfire that the 2008 Republican presidential campaign is collapsing into. They have reached the through any shit you can find, see if it sticks, because "Big Love" has almost out raised "Il Duce" and "St. John" by double.

Next scandal Huckabee wears white past Labor Day.

Okay so many of you may not have a working knowledge of Klingon so a transaltion of the title above,
"(Expletive deleted) Cowards without honor!"

"This president has listened to some people, the so-called Vulcans in the White House, the ideologues. But you know, unlike the Vulcans of Star Trek who made the decisions based on logic and fact, these guys make it on ideology. These aren't Vulcans. There are Klingons in the White House. But unlike the real Klingons of Star Trek, these Klingons have never fought a battle of their own. Don't let faux Klingons send real Americans to war."
