Bonus Beat Whorin'

I will once again be a guest on Kevin Fullam's "Under Surveillance" show, discussing images of democracy in popular culture, tomorrow at 10:30AM on WLUW 88.7FM here in Chicago. For those of you out of state, you can listen live by going to WLUW's website, here.

Single-issue voters

"All progress on every other issue depends on the safety of our citizens," Bush told supporters. "John Kerry has no idea how to keep America secure."


""On October 10th, the IAEA received a declaration from the Iraqi Ministry of Science and Technology informing us that approximately 350 metric tons of high explosive material had gone missing," Fleming said. "We do not know what happened to the explosives or when they were looted. The most immediate concern here is that these explosives could have fallen into the wrong hands."

Keeping America secure. That's why we need to vote for George Bush: there are wolves at the door, and he is keeping America secure.

350 metric tons. It took one pound to bring down the Lockerbie jet. This theft constitutes enough explosives to bring down over half a million jets. It was stolen from a facility 'protected' by overextended American troops, in the middle of an occupation that is as botched as it is possible to be. Advance warning was given to the NSC and the State Department by one of the most important agencies of the UN (the hated UN, those betrayers, those internationalists), and nothing has been done. The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (a Muslim, those betrayers, those hatemongers) is releasing a report on this massive theft of explosives only because the U.S. has sat on its hands.

Keeping America secure. My contempt for this administration is surpassed only by their contempt for everyone else. Keeping America secure.

A thing to do

Do this thing. Everybody likes drugs, right*? Then tell me:

1. Your favorite slang term for drugs (i.e., "yayo" for cocaine, "buddha" for marijuana, or whatever)

2. A slang term for drugs that nobody uses but you and some of your friends.

3. A slang term for drugs that you just made up but you wish would catch on because it is funny.

Best entry in each category will receive a gift of drugs!
