Froomkin Has Another Good One Up

Froomkin has another good post up at the WaPoo regarding Bush, a person I commonly refer to as King George, and his suspiciously timed press conference yesterday that drew attention away from the Senate and, once again, failed to answer questions. Froomkin is also going on my blogroll, assuming I eventually figure all this blogging stuff out.

Froomkin's link:

Froomkin also talks about a Cheney transcript from an interview with Tony Snow yesterday, for those of you interested in Shooter's view of the dark side.

Oh My Goodness

I've been blogrolled! My friend Debra, mentioned in the be low post, has listed TTGB on her blogroll.

I gotta remember to ask her to show me how to blogroll. In the mean time, here is the link to her blog,

and in case the link doesn't work (I'm not real good at it yet)cut and paste:

Why Lamont Matters (even in California)

From Jane's most recent post at, a blog I read daily (even the comments). Sometimes I even come out of lurking mode and comment. As soon as I figure out how to blogroll, I'll have FireDogLake along with my friend Debra's blog right up there! And, as soon as I figure out how to change these links into those nifty wordlinks that say what I want them to say, please bear with me. I've got my fingers and toescrossed but, being double Irish and all, hope this first attempt at linking works...

Back to Jane's post,
, I snagged a quote she snagged from The Connecticut Journal Inquirer:

"Lamont’s secret weapon is not his personal wealth. That helps. But his greatest asset is a public philosophy. He believes in constitutional democracy. He believes in limited government and popular sovereignty. Even in wartime, the power of government must be checked; even in wartime the president is not a law unto himself; even in wartime the people deserve to be informed by the free exchange of ideas. Even in wartime, the citizens may seek to change the government."

Great article about Ned Lamont and his race to unseat Joe Lieberman and why this race is important, even to those of us in California. Click on the links. Read Jane's take on it and read the comments. Click on the links offered in the comments about other Lamont's out there.

This life-long Republican says we need more Ned Lamont's out there.

I'm An Old Broad

Include me in the old broad category. There are few things scarier (pay attention NSA monitor) than an hormonally challenged, uppity woman on a fixed income who carries her own personal summer with her and has a working knowledge of personal weaponry. I can still drum up that "mad mom" voice that will send chills down your spine, and I'm not afraid to use it.

Token Posted by Picasa

This is a picture of my dog, Token, taken on the day I got him. He was 8 weeks old and weighed 2lbs 4oz. He is now 13 months and weighs 7lbs. Token is a genuine immitation male here at the Estrogen Palace, which does kind of explain his name. In addition to being the only full time male resident, Token is pretty small but thinks he is a big dog. Loves to run and play with his sister, Goldie, who lives next door. They are a real interesting mix of breeds, with Token looking like their dad, Spud, and Goldie looking like their mom, Pager.

'Splainin' It To Lucy

Who am I? Keep reading.
