Podcasting Liberally returns!

Thanks to Darryl and his personal obsessions (and demons) it looks like we’re podcasting again from Drinking Liberally. Sitting around the table last night was Joel Connelly, Will Kelley-Kamp, Daniel Kirkdorffer, Carl Ballard and me. Joyful Republican bashing ensued. You may download the podcast (43MB, 47 minutes) for your time shifting pleasure, or listen to it here:

I sound a little tired (not drunk) at first, but don’t worry, we all get back into the swing of things after a while.

We’re working to get the old Podcasting Liberally site up to date, and hope to make this a regular feature once again.

    Well Pilgrims’ you left us with the old form of communications. Thus presenting no new abilities to insurt the new You-tube tenchnologies. Goldy you need to get the users of the web site the chance to present their new art work. You know make it a real liberal type of site not the North Korean approach you use today. Instead let us introduce the humor displayed below.
    A woman from Austin , who was a tree hugger and anti-hunter, purchased several acres of Hill Country land, near Lake Travis , Texas . There was a huge tree on one of the highest points in the tract. She wanted to view the natural splendor of her land, so she climbed the tree. As she neared the top, she encountered a spotted owl. It attacked her! In her haste to escape, the woman slid down the tree to the ground. The ensuing fall incurred several splinters of wood in her crotch.

    In considerable pain, she hurried to the nearest doctor, 35 minutes away. She told him she was an environmentalist and anti-hunter and how she came to receive all of the splinters. The doctor listened to her story with great patience. He then told her to go into the examining room and he would see if he could help. The impatient patient sat, and waited for three hours before the doctor reappeared.
    The angry woman demanded, “What took you so long?”
    He smiled and said, “Well, I had to get permits from US Environmental Service, the Texas Parks and Wildlife and Keep Texas Beautiful before I could remove old-growth timber from a recreational area. I’m sorry, but they turned me down.”

    Which of the folks below is the real Roger Rabbit?
    a. The Prosecuting Attorney
    b. The Defense Attorney
    c. The Judge
    Goldy if we could run surveys think of how much that would improve your website.

    Lawyers should never ask a Mississippi grandma a question if they aren’t prepared for the answer.
    In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, ‘Mrs. Jones, do you know me?’ She responded, ‘Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I’ve known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you’ve been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you’re a big shot when you haven’t the brains to realize you’ll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.’

    The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, ‘Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?’

    She again replied, ‘ Why ye s, I do. I’ve known Mr. Bradley since he was a
    youngster, too. He’s lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can’t build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.’

    The defense attorney nearly died.

    The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said,
    ‘If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I’ll send you both to the electric chair.

    “Bloomberg Won’t Run for President


    “NEW YORK (Feb. 27) – … Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared in a newspaper editorial Wednesday that he will not run for president but might support the candidate who ‘takes an independent, nonpartisan approach.’

    The 66-year-old billionaire businessman … wrote in an editorial on The New York Times’ Web site that he will work to ‘steer the national conversation away from partisanship and toward unity; away from ideology and toward common sense; away from sound bites and toward substance.’

    “Bloomberg underwent extensive preparation for a presidential bid. The work included mass polling and nationwide data collection to determine his viability as a candidate, as well as detailed study and preparation for a state-by-state ballot access drive.

    “Aides and associates had said in recent days that Illinois Sen. Barack Obama’s rise in the Democratic contest against New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton was increasingly diminishing the chance that Bloomberg would run.

    “In the Times editorial, Bloomberg wrote that while he is not running, the race is too important for him to stay completely out. … ‘If a candidate takes an independent, nonpartisan approach — and embraces practical solutions that challenge party orthodoxy — I’ll join others in helping that candidate win the White House.’

    “Putting his endorsement — and wealth — behind one of the candidates could make a significant difference. And Bloomberg, a Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-independent, has ties to Obama, Clinton and Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain.

    “Last November, Bloomberg and Obama met in Manhattan for a highly publicized breakfast, and the mayor has praised some of Obama’s positions, such as supporting merit pay for teachers.”

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: Bloomberg’s announcement, even though unsurprising, will have no effect on the parties’ nomination contests but obviously will have some impact on the November equation, and he has left some suspense over who he will embrace.

    Victims of L.A. Bus Stop Shooting Survive

    “LOS ANGELES (AP) – A gunman fired into a crowd of children and adults at a South Los Angeles bus stop just after schools let out Wednesday, wounding eight, authorities said.

    “Three girls, ages 10, 11 and 12, and a 49-year-old woman were in stable condition and were expected to recover, police Lt. Ruben De La Torre said. A 12-year-old girl, a 14-year-old boy and two men, ages 48 and 68, had minor injuries.

    “The gunman ran away, and streets in the area were shut down as police officers rushed in. … It wasn’t immediately clear what led to the shooting.”

    Oh, come on, you don’t really believe that, do you? I’m sure you know that about 2/3 of federal judges were appointed by Republican presidents, don’t you? Of course, for the record, all federal judges are brilliant, whomever might have appointed them.

    How To Succeed In The New Economy

    “Marian … attended Clemson University … and earned a bachelor’s degree in tourism and management. At age 29, she got married and gave birth to three children. When her marriage ended … Marian was a single mom … struggling to make ends meet. …

    “[S]he searched for a new job that would bring in more money, but the careers she looked into required extra education …. Then a friend made a suggestion that … Marian could become an exotic dancer.

    “Two years later, Marian makes enough money to care for her family. Since she only dances three nights a week, she also has time to spend with her children. … On a typical workday, Marian makes dinner for her children and a babysitter comes over so she can head to work. …

    “Marion says dancing naked in front of strangers can be a bit of an emotional challenge. … I say, “Okay, I want to try to make rent tonight.” … Stripping has improved Marian’s financial situation and provided free time with her kids ….

    “After all she has overcome in her life, Marian says she feels ‘victorious.’ She says she’s ready to tell the world about her life as a single mom and an exotic dancer. …

    “Lisa … felt very skeptical when she took the assignment to interview Marian. ‘Spending the entire day with Marian and her kids and then seeing her naked was an unusual experience …,’ Lisa says. … ‘Marian is a really, really good mom who happens to be a stripper. That’s her job … this is the path that works for her.'”

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: As Mark the Welsher would say, anyone can succeed if you have a college degree and A GREAT BODY. He would know. He’s probably one of the guys stuffing twenties into Marian’s garter, which is the closest he’s ever going to get to real sex.

    “Three years ago, Madeline was an executive … earning a six-figure salary … [now she’s] a freegan who gets … her food from what other people throw away. …

    Now Madeline routinely takes people in New York City on trash tours. … In her New York City home, Madeline prepares a meal … made from salvaged food. Her kitchen is stocked with … fruit, vegetables, milk, bread, eggs and even cut flowers … which … came from the trash. … ‘Once you know what you’re doing, in approximately one hour, you can gather food that … [would cost] between [$100] and $300,’ Madeline says. …

    “While most newlyweds spend their time picking out new furniture and china, Daniel and Amanda are picking through eggshells to find salvageable food. This doctor and engineer are Nashville-area freegans. … Their haul includes fruit and vegetables, frozen pizza, milk and eggs, 50 boxes of cereal, 2,000 envelopes, sheets, rugs, lotion, furniture … even workout equipment! They … especially love cooking using cans that have lost their labels. ‘They’re the most fun,’ Daniel says. ‘We call them ‘mystery cans.'”

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: If you follow Mark the Welsher’s advice — get 4 college degrees and acquire valuable skills — you’ll probably price yourself right out of a job. But don’t despair; the Busheviks are creating millions of new jobs dumpster diving and eating garbage.

    More Democrat Racists:

    During a series of satellite television interviews, Clinton was questioned by Dallas station KTVT about comments by Adelfa Callejo, a local activist who supports Clinton candidacy. The interviewer quoted Callejo as saying “Obama’s problem is he happens to be black” and asked Clinton to respond.

    The interviewer asked Clinton whether she rejected or denounced Callejo’s comment.

    “People have every reason to express their opinions, I just don’t agree with that,” she said, adding “You know, this is a free country. People get to express their opinions.”

    You people are such hypocrites!

    Obama’s spending promise haunts him


    Backtrack Flip Flops yet again… and you know when MSNBC is pressing him, it’s bad news because the media is giving this guy the biggest free ride I’ve ever seen.

    Flip Flops on Single Payer Healthcare
    Flip Flops on Handgun control
    Flip Flops on Nuclear Energy Safety
    Flip Flops on Cuba Relations
    Flip Flops on Presidential Public Financing

    ( and before you attack me, if you haven’t read the document that he filled out, it was pretty god damn clear, it was nothing like what he was trying to stammer in the debate – home skillet lied, plain and simple )

    Flip Flop!
    Obama says he’s for it
    then Obama says ignore it
    and he won’t stop…

    Flip Flop!

    I am watching the most virulent donkey blog sites where the radical of the radical visit. There is a concern of Obama and his skin color will “inhibit” some NEW Progressive support.

    But but but… racism is only in Republican ranks. NOT!

    For those paying attention notice the states with large Mexican hispanic populations where Heilary has won, and those with mixed spanish populations where Obama has won. Of course only Puddy pays attention to these facts.

    CA – Heilary
    NV – Heilary
    NM – Heilary
    AZ – Heilary
    TX – I call Heilary but close.

    Delusional Don Joe@31: Later after the interview Howard Wolfson took a poll on Heilary’s response to Adelfa Callejo comments and it came back saying you better denounce the comments. So the campaign issues the announcement after the fact.
