You, are an idiot.

Thought I would let you know that.



My detractors are so refined. -- I suppose I should retort in an appropriate tone... NO, YOU'RE AN IDIOT!!!

Another Lesson: Nothing wins an argument like blind repetition of facts or opinions or whatever meaningless piece of information you happen to have on hand


I love the fact that you attack Fox news and yet say nothing of Dan Rather and his shameful attempt to discredit the president using fake documents.

You attack the right for mud slinging but it was those on the left who called Bush a liar, a coward, stupid, and even had internet ads comparing him to Hitler.

You praise that fountain of misinformation Michael Moore when even you know all he does is cut and paste together footage to push his ultra-left agenda. Hell, even the gun giveaway in the bank scene in his academy award winning "documentary" was staged.

The Kerry campaign lost because Kerry was a weak candidate and had no clear stand on any issue at all.

I know you probably wont be able to watch Bush at his second inauguration but let not your heart be troubled. Hillary will run in 2008 and maybe if every heterosexual man with a job decides not to vote, your dreams of another idiotic left wing president will come true.


First I would like to point out that this post was an aim at humor, semi-partisan humor, but humor all the same. Dan Rather was wrong to report on documents whose authenticity had not been verified. However, as a voice from the left (though certainly not a Democrat) I find the extremism of television’s right-wing personalities absurd. They launch blind attacks based solely on sound bites. I see no value in the services these individuals perform, and I would gladly say the same for extreme personalities on the left.

As liberal American I do have an agenda, and while my end goal is a little honesty in, well, everything – I’m not going to back away from saying that I took deliberate steps to sabotage (by legal means) the Bush campaign. Leading up to an election I’d probably want to shy away from criticizing those that I would prefer to see in office, don’t you thing? In fact, many would strain to call me a Kerry supporter. Like most Americans, I voted and did my best to promote the viable candidate that most closely represented my personal politics. Upon further inspection, while my politics may be apparent, my comments regarding mud-slinging are aimed at the ‘theater’ not a particular candidate.

I’m still trying to determine when I praised Michael Moore… and perhaps I should distinguish that considering Moore a brilliant film maker does not mean I take everything he says as gospel. Frankly, I’m disgusted by those that do. Moreover, I consider his EXTREME leftist message and willingness to mislead to be somewhat harmful to my political ends.

I may be making things too complex, but I would guess Kerry’s loss of the election was based on more than his fitness as a candidate. Again, I’m not a democrat.

Your final comments are more than likely an attempt to add insult to what you believe to be injury. Again, I AM NOT A DEMOCRAT. The fact that the democrats would even consider running Hillary Clinton is a testament to their disorganization and impracticality as a party. “idiotic left-wing” --- way to raise the level of discourse.

  • Howard Zinn: A People's History of the United States

    Howard Zinn: A People's History of the United States
    Some might call it revisionist history, but I call it another important angle. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE should read this book. Howard Zinn provides a view of history taken from the notoriously neglected perspective of the people. (*****)

  • Dan Brown: The Da Vinci Code

    Dan Brown: The Da Vinci Code
    I think I enjoyed this a 'little' less than Angels & Demons, the canned and predictable nature of Dan Brown's novels are beginning to wear on me. Instead of taking the book in new directions as different "codes" are broken, the story doesn't seem to develop twists, or at least not interesting ones. Actually I found the progression more frustrating... In a BAD way. Dan Brown's books were fun but I don't think I'll be rushing to read any more. The Da Vinci Code was slightly less ridiculous, towards the end, than A&D, though more disappointing. (**)

  • Bill Maher: When You Ride Alone You Ride with Bin Laden: What the Government Should be Telling Us to Help Fight the War on Terrorism

    Bill Maher: When You Ride Alone You Ride with Bin Laden: What the Government Should be Telling Us to Help Fight the War on Terrorism
    A balls out collection of opinions regarding the nation and its citizenry. Bill Maher has never been known for understating anything, and the same holds true in this short, yet poignant book. Love him or hate him, something in this book will make you laugh, and something else will ring resoundingly if even painfully, true. (*****)


  • : Jet Li's Hero

    Jet Li's Hero
    Hero seems unrestrained directorially leading to many great and equally weak moments. Fans of the genre should enjoy this, but do not go in expecting Crouching Tiger. The plot is not very compelling and confusing at that. Fight choreography is decent in some scenes, while fairly canned and unimaginative in others. Worth seeing for fans of such films, but unsatisfying overall. (***)

  • : Meet the Fockers

    Meet the Fockers
    A perfectly acceptable follow up to Meet the Parents. Somehow I just can't dislike Dustin Hoffman. Ben Stiller on the other hand tests my patience. I'm only thankful that he has become so type-cast that his staying power will be limited. This film was a more lewd than the first, and there is no shortage of cheap cracks and ridiculous situations. I went in expecting very little, but I was satisfied to get a few laughs. Big fans of the first film will enjoy this, while others won't be missing anything groundbreaking. (***)

  • : Darkness

    This movie makes little sense, and what sense it DOES make leaves way too many WTF? moments. The scare tactics employed in this film are repetitive and unimaginative -- Ominous silhouettes and fluctuating power get old after awhile. The scariest moment in the film was also ruined by crappy special effects. Plot twists are also attempted, but fail because they're too predictable. If you HAVE to see this movie, wait to rent it.

  • : ReplayTV RTV5508 80-Hour Digital Video Recorder

    ReplayTV RTV5508 80-Hour Digital Video Recorder
    Similar to TiVo in function, ReplayTV offers extended features, beyond the function of your standard DVR. Specifically, Replay’s networkability allows the sharing of media files (including movies) across ones home network. DVArchive allows Replay owners to download and save video from their Replay, a feature restricted by the proprietary encoding used by TiVo. This was the big x-mas gift of 2004, I think my family will be thanking me in 2005.

  • : The Lord of the Rings - The Motion Picture Trilogy (Special Extended DVD Edition)

    The Lord of the Rings - The Motion Picture Trilogy (Special Extended DVD Edition)
    I’ve been biding my time for 3 years, waiting for this box set to be released. Finally, the full extended editions of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy are mine. This is an amazing epic trilogy brought to life, brilliantly by Peter Jackson. While I have yet to find the 18+ hours required to take in all content of the set, a preliminary sampling holds a great deal of promise. The packaging itself is wonderfully designed with textured tomes for each set of 4 DVDs constituting 1 of the 3 films. My sister purchased this set for me for xmas. I plan to enjoy it whole heartedly. (*****)

  • : Norton SystemWorks 2004 - AntiVirus, Utilities, Passwords, Cleansweep

    Norton SystemWorks 2004 - AntiVirus, Utilities, Passwords, Cleansweep
    Frankly, you can't argue much with FREE. So far so good, though it does slow down my startup time. Though I think maintaining a clean registry will have long term benefits. (**)


  • The Decemberists: Picaresque

    The Decemberists: Picaresque
    I downloaded this CD a few months back when I was on an Iron & Wine kick, and never took the time to listen. Some friends of mine recommended them recently, and boy am I pleased they did. Tracks from this album are now in frequent rotation among my 9,000. Thank you iTunes + iPod. Everyone should have a listen. I'll be interested to hear what you think. Although I have downloaded their entire catalog...I am left wanting more. (*****)

  • Tatu: 200 Km/H in the Wrong Lane

    Tatu: 200 Km/H in the Wrong Lane
    Shit! ... I Mean TOTAL shit... but fun shit. And NO of course I didn't pay for it. I may be an idiot but I sure as hell wouldn't pay for this shit. (*)

  • Snow Patrol: Final Straw

    Snow Patrol: Final Straw
    British Indie rockers... at times they have a sigur ros meets radiohead meets coldplay kind of thing going on...though it does get a little "poppy" at times. I enjoy most but not all of this album. Though the single "Run" appears to be growing in popularity among the mainstream... decent sounding track. (***)
