GITMO and Habeas Corpus

Surprise guest at Netroots Convention: Al Gore

Nancy Pelosi came to AustinShire, Texas, ready for a possibly unfriendly crowd. FISA, IraqNam funding, and other issues were not only irking Netrooters, but pissing a whole mess of them off something fierce.

The power of netroots

I’m pretty lucky. I managed to set aside a ever more complex schedule of clients and court calls and clashes and confounded constipatory complications and find my whey in AustinShire, a lovely librul outpost in the muddle of Red Texas. NETROOTS NATION – a meeting of progressives, liberals and people who have had enough of Darth Cheney, George W. and Condi Rice.

Telephone – Inter-tube style & John McCain

The younger you are, the less likely that you played a parlor game called Telephone, as iPods, gaming devices, PCs, and other technologies crowd out attention spans, and finger control becomes more important than a well-chosen phrase, or a decent memory.
