Guest hosted by Blue Gal (I'll be here all week, send me tips, but don't try the veal.)
Susie Bright (nsfw): The most expensive birth control in the world, and why is it so cheap in Houston?
The Aristocrats: Signs you have too many houses.
CJSD: First Veep Possibility to answer the phone at 3am wins!
There is a conference this weekend in New Orleans on The Future of New Orleans including a blogger meet up tonight. No word on whether you'll be able to receive text messages at the conference. (On the Obama text msg. topic, Sef leaves the best. comment. ever.)
Rising Hegemon: Another endorsement...
the field negro: Toby, I think you have a hit on your hands
Sadly, No! You probably remember that fringe-dweller's favorite, The Clinton Body Count. And if you're on the wingnuttiest email lists, you've been warned about the Obama Death List. Now comes the McCain - Obama Death List, a partial list of deaths of persons connected to both John NMA McCain and Barack HUSSEIN Obama during their time as presidential hopefuls in the United States.
Susie Bright's Journal: Going Off The Rails
Susie Bright: The end of a publishing era as "Best American Erotica 2008" will be the last in the series. What this says about publishing, reading, and those of us who write anything at all, is sad, sad.
Too Sense: Andrew Young needs Jesus.
Les Enrages: an open letter to Tom Donahue, president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
Shakespeare's Sister: Bush's Freedom Agenda (involves cocktail weenies, of course).
CJSD blog: Twelve ways to pick a candidate, even when Huckabee has completely lost his "figure."
(Mike's playing music on a boat with the Phantom Blues Band and is temporarily away from internet; he'll be back soon.)
Susie Bright's Journal (not always safe for work):
Let me introduce you to the swan-song poster girl of the abstinence education movement: TV actress and celebrity-sister, Jamie Lynn Spears. She's pregnant.
Jamie, raised to be a Baptist Good Girl by her devoted Church Stage Mother, was "shocked" to learn she was expecting, according to her tabloid confession.
Jamie is so... typical.
...The abysmal failure of purity balls and chastity rings and "Just-Say-No" is one of the most under-reported stories of the year. The numbers are in, and they are deafening. Read more...
Open thread below...
We've lost some very important voices in the liberal blogosphere in the last year. One common denominator those bloggers shared with others of us still on this mortal coil is the lack of infrastructure that supports us and our basic necessities, like health care.
Suburban Guerrilla's Susie Madrak has some ideas and we'd like to see your feedback.
Paperwight: On one issue (guess which one), Bush 43 has finally followed Bush 41's example - even though, as Beggars Can Be Choosers reminds us, the quality of mercy is not Bushian. (And, from Avedon Carol: When does the President NOT have the right to pardon?)We had dismissed the candidacy of Mike Gravel, but a quote unearthed by Susie Madrak may compel us, in light of recent events, to take a second look.
Boing Boing: Google appears to have disowned a corporate blog post offering to help the healthcare industry "promote its message" with ads that would appear alongside search results for "Michael Moore" or "Sicko."
Instaputz: Perhaps Glenn Reynolds should have asked Question #34.
Prose Before Hos: Fight terror. Go shopping for "pure silver recovered from Ground Zero"!
Whirledview: "This administration can't even issue passports - so how can it possibly do public diplomacy?"
Guest blogger Simbaud hoists a glass in memory of the late, great blogger Jim Capozzola (1962-2007). Send your links to Simbaud AT gmail DOT com.

The Sunday Talking Heads are up and ready for the reading here. It's quite the eclectic mix this morning, and it includes both Dick Cheney and Richard Perle, so be forewarned that it is an excuse-riddled neocon extravaganza in some parts.
Let's see. Dick Cheney is likely to say that if you don't agree with him, "then you are a terrorist supporting commie." Oh, and anything wrong that Dick has ever done or said is somehow Nancy Pelosi's fault. Is that about right? Jon Kyl? "The Bush Administration would never, ever try to skirt the law and…darn it, where did I put that cue card that Karl prepared for me?" Ditto for Lindsey Graham. Richard Perle? "Iran….scary." Does that about cover the neocon and apologia contingent?
What looks interesting? Marian Wright Edelman of the Children's Defense Fund, who will likely be talking about their Elect Susie campaign regarding the 9 million (and counting) uninsured children in America. It's a wonderful campaign, well worth some effort and discussion, and I'm very glad that Marian is getting some air time for it this morning on CNN.
What is catching your eye in the news or on the blogs this morning?
Liberty Street: How many Iraqis have died? Most Americans have no idea
The Carpetbagger Report: Libby was anything but a " loyal soldier"
Mia Culpa: Eighth U.S. Attorney axed in what has become a slow-motion ideological massacre
The Portland Freelancer: What shall we call the hybrid Peter Principle that is Richard Cheney? I think the Dick Principle is a strong candidate. The only question is whether the word "principle" should appear in the title.
10 Zen Monkeys: Susie Bright launches a fight against hypocrisy with a betting pool on when "formerly" gay evangelical pastor (and methamphetamine user) Ted Haggard will have a relapse
Bob Geiger: Editorial cartoon roundup
I'm meeting Susie for dinner tonight. She made her way to the left coast this week from Philly and I'm looking forward to finally meeting her. Susie was one of the first bloggers to gave me some real advice when I first started. I can't find the email or I would publish it. There were a few rules to follow. Anyway,
two days12 hours left in the Draft Gore $5 primary. Guess it’s not sounding quite as farfetched as it did a month ago, huh? If you haven’t pledged yet, go put your money where your mouth is. In the meantime, there’s a great new Gore interview in Rolling Stone. Does this man sound too cautious to get your vote?...read on
