the resurrection of the debris sandwich

I just flossed these fleshy little bits out from between my teeth and I thought that you might be interested in tasting them… According to a new ad campaign, the hunky Brawney paper towel man has started exploring his sensitive side… and, it would seem, ejaculating on men (thanks to Lumber Girl for pointing this out to me)… Surprising no one, Bush just made it easier for companies to emit mercury, a wonderful substance found to cause “direct harm to the development of nervous systems in infants and young children”… A number of influential Progressive bloggers have been having conference calls with representatives from the corporate media, talking about how to transfer knowledge more efficiently from the blogosphere to the mainstream, and no one called me… Paul Krugman warns John Stewart that if the President’s changes to Social Security were made, our mothers would be eating cat food… It won’t be news to anyone that reads this site, but apparently the New York Times has just discovered that the Bush administration is in the business of disseminating propaganda…. Vanity Fair gives us the story of the whistleblower who came forward with information about a Halliburton subsidiary’s sweetheart deal in Iraq. Here’s just one little component that I hadn’t heard before:

Worst of all, the contract would be “cost-plus”: KBR (Kellogg, Brown and Root) would just submit bills for whatever it spent, and the government would reimburse it, adding fees of between 2 and 7 percent as KBR’s profit. It didn’t take a genius to see that the more money KBR spent, the more profit it would make.

And lastly, I have one question: “What should we have Chris Barr do?” (I think it should involve Kami somehow.)

Oh, and apparently David Cross has speculated that FOX will replace his genre-smashing show, Arrested Development, with something more predictible, like “America’s Cutest Retards” when they yank it from the lineup. Speaking of Arrested Development, did anyone else notice Henry Winkler jumping over the shark last night? Absolutely brilliant.

    Missed Fonzie jumping the shark tank and hope that it is not a foreboding plot scene.

    Yeah, Krugman was pretty amazing…did you hear his description of the bankruptcy laws they are seeking to pass/passed? In the words of my partner as we drove to a destination wedding in Mendocino (read switchbacks in complete fog w/ crashing waves at the end of the 500 ft drop right off the shoulder), “I wish that somebody could have just beaten me up and taken all of my money rather than have to go through this”, the this now being the 4th Reich.

    first off Arrested development was one of the funniest new shows,next to everything on Adult swim (robot chicken is gold). I wish I didn’t have commitment issues andwould have watched more of it!
    I was soooo sexually harrased when I worked at walmart. They are evil to the core! pure scary unlimited funding evil. my 60 year old mom works 3rd shift unloading trucks there cause it pays $8 an hour and she only made 6 as a cashier. Fuck my mom is a paycheck from eating cat food now!
    I knew Brawny went gay, I thought finally some one is targeting a market that has income!

    Kami, if you get a chance, I’d be curious to know your story, and how you got from Wal-Mart to where you are today.

    The Cult
    Becoming a part of the Cult, consists of being recruited a member of the cult, as a person that can be relied on to assume responsibilities and accomplish all or almost all things requested.
    Depending upon the position you hold and the person that you are attached to the most, any position can be engaging and can be so different from any other experience that you have had prior to Walmart in almost any retail sector that you feel you are being chosen for great things.
    Along with morning meetings and consistently being told how much you mean as an individual to the company, by your recruiter, management and the general population you feel an inclusiveness that is hard to describe. Before the end of each meeting the feeling, gets closer to being accepted into a religious organization or sorority, and when you are accepted, in some way you sincerely begin to believe what you are being told is that you belong to a new family.
