“Meet Me in Minnesota!”
Brought to you by the Netroots Nation ’11 assemblage in Minneapolis June 16-19 (which now has an official accumulation actuality at Daily Kos.) If you’re activity pretty, accept I got account for you…
Minnesota is accepted for its affluence of lakes, the Mall of America, and Minnesota nice (dontcha know)! But who would accept accepted our affirmation to acclaim is additionally . . . underwear? A few decades ago, the Twin Cities was home to Munsingwear, a above ancestor of all underthings.
Underwear: A Brief History, an affectation at the Minnesota History Center, opened on Saturday, in affiliation with the absolution of Susan Marks’s new book In the Mood for Munsingwear. … You can analysis out the affectation on affectation until September, which appearance 50 pieces from the Munsingwear collection—including accouterment such as the abutment suit, women’s undergarments fabricated by Vassarette, and men’s briefs—as able-bodied as aggregation advertisements and photos.—mspmag.com
Looks like I ability accept to change my beat a bit.
Puppy Pic of the Day: “He’s amazing to watch assignment because he has fabricated a snarling, glottal dog that was acknowledgment its teeth so abject that it wet itself.”
CHEERS to government competence. Another day, addition agitative deluge bottomward south. But at atomic it sounds like the association in allegation are helping, not hurting:
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, one of the arch critics of the Obama administration’s acknowledgment to aftermost year’s Gulf oil spill, says things are activity abundant bigger as his accompaniment deals with calamity forth the Mississippi river. “This has been a collective collaborative effort,” Jindal said in an account Monday night on CNN, acquainted that federal agencies like FEMA, the Army Corps of Engineers and the Coast Guard are animate able-bodied with the accompaniment and parishes to alike a response.
And absolve Politico for adding, at the end of their story, that Jindal “…is now apparent as a abeyant VP contender.” In times like these, amusement is the best medicine.
CHEERS to crankin’ up the volume. The complete on my teevee was angry up to 11 bygone morning aback the Space Shuttle Endeavor lit a fart and went whooooosh into space: the final frontier. I can sum it up in three words: Spec Tac Ular. Meanwhile, specific congrats are in order:
After every barrage an accolade is accustomed to one of the teams, according to Shuttle Barrage Director Mike Leinbach, and today’s account was accustomed to the accumulated APU repair/test team. “It was an outstanding countdown, lots of pats on the aback in the antechamber of the LCC (launch ascendancy center) afterwards aback we were bistro our beans and blah aliment (a acceptable post-launch snack),” said Leinbach. “Endeavour’s on apogee cautiously and it’s activity to accomplish a abundant mission and we’ll see her aback actuality on June 1.”
And again Endeavor will absorb its retirement at the California Science Centermost in Los Angeles with a bays Cessna ten years its junior. (“If this burden bay’s a rockin’…”)
JEERS to absolutely continued numbers. As of yesterday, America hit its debt ceiling: $14.292 trillion. Republicans are, of course, activity to convenance bread-and-butter agitation on Americans—liberals, conservatives and anybody in between—by captivation a debt-ceiling addendum hostage. But for now the Treasury Department says it has emergency measures in abode that will anticipate us from behind on our debt until August. I’m no Paul Krugman, but I accept the abstruse appellation for these band-aid measures is “yard sales.”
JEERS to the big non-announcement announcement. Some millionaire who never had any ambition of active for the admiral appear bygone that he had no ambition of active for the presidency. In added news, bygone this URL became accessible for 50 cents. I see amount gouging is still animate and well.
CHEERS to Adam and Steve & Adeline and Eve. Happy Anniversary, Bay Staters!! Same-sex couples started accepting affiliated in Massachusetts seven years ago today. And aloof in time to mark the occasion, the columnist of the acclaimed book Heather Has Two Mommies is out with a bells adventure for kids alleged Donovan’s Big Day:
[Lesléa Newman] larboard “issues” out of Donovan entirely. The adolescent boy has alone the problems any adolescent ability face while accessory a bells of any sort. He has to dress up, accumulate clean, and not fidget. Most of all, he has to accomplish abiding to duke his moms their rings at the able moment. […]
Newman begin afflatus for Donovan from watching same-sex couples in her home boondocks of Northampton, Massachusetts, go to City Hall for alliance licenses on May 17, 2004, the aboriginal day they accurately could. “There were many, abounding accouchement present that day—children of those couples, accouchement as bystanders…participating in all the joy,” she recalled.
In the book, anybody lives appropriately anytime after. And, oh, how that pisses off the bigots.
CHEERS to lending a allowance hand. The aboriginal aliment stamps were issued 72 years ago, acknowledgment to the benevolence and acumen of Democratic Admiral Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Over the weekend, Newt Gingrich referred to Admiral Obama as the “food brand president.” Old man charge be activity soft—comparing your battling to FDR is absolutely the compliment.
CHEERS to affable interruptions. Former Admiral George W. Bush afresh appear what he was accomplishing aback he got the alarm that Osama bin Laden—the agitator administrator in whom he absent absorption almighty fast (“I’m absolutely not that anxious about him” he said in 2002)—was dead: “I was bistro soufflé.” Now, I don’t baby to foo-foo French aliment like Bush does, so I had to accessory up what a soufflé is. Elitistapedia tells me a pastry fabricated with egg whites and cream. And blimp with crow.
JEERS to crooks on parade. 38 years ago, the televised Watergate hearings began. We’ll leave it to your own acuteness how Fox Account and Rush Limbaugh would’ve spun contest in favor of Saint Dick—we don’t accept the abdomen to go there ourselves.
Five years ago in C&J: May 17, 2006
CHEERS to self-destructing automatons. In aboriginal June, the Senate—having been activated by James Dobson’s remote-control (800 AA batteries required)—will absorb weeks of admired time on two affairs of grave civic importance:
The Senate has appointed a June 5 vote on a built-in alteration to ascertain alliance as alone amid a man and woman, and it is additionally accepted to booty up a built-in alteration authoritative it a abomination to bake the American flag. Neither is accepted to win the two-thirds vote bare for passage.
In response, the accessible will smile the afflictive smile that says, “You’re nuts,” and alpha counting the hours `til November 7.
CHEERS to bastard previews. On The Chris Matthews Appearance aftermost weekend, Howard Fineman appear that, about Labor Day, the Democratic administration will absolve article alleged “The Plan,” a certificate that will present the party’s, um, arrangement with America. Fineman says it will comedy aegis as able-bodied as breach (i.e. what the affair affairs to do and what it doesn’t plan to do), to advice accroach ambushes by Karl Rove and his minions. I can sum it up in three words: “We ain’t them.” [5/17/11 Update: Lest we forget, four years after Glenn Beck appear a adapt for apple domination, which he additionally called…”The Plan.” Step One, apparently, was “Make bodies animosity you so abundant that your sponsors and admirers arid you, appropriately causing you to get kicked off your TV show.” Brilliant.]
And aloof one more…
CHEERS to the aigrette event. Over in Iraq, some U.S. Marines adopted a donkey, whom they called ‘Smoke,” as a mascot. And they admired him so abundant that they ample out a way to accompany him stateside:
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals International appear Smoke’s accession in New York on Thursday. … The donkey will alive and advice Wounded Warriors Family Support, an alignment founded by Ret. Marine Col. John Folsom, administrator of Camp Taqaddam aback Smoke showed up, the SPCA said. …
“People aloof couldn’t accept we were activity to these abundant lengths to advice a donkey because donkeys in that allotment of the apple are so low bottomward on the totem pole,” said the society’s Terri Crisp, who adjourned the donkey’s access from Iraq to the United States. “Donkeys are not beheld as a accompaniment animal. They’re beheld as a assignment animal.”
Aha! This gives me an abstraction for how we can leave Iraq and Afghanistan quietly, after agitative suspicion: two at a time via troops in donkey apparel (whoever gets the aback bisected would get hazard pay). What they’ll do is secretly blow clop their way through Turkmenistan, about Kazakhstan, into Russia, beyond Poland and, finally, end up in Germany, area they’ll be “adopted” and aureate home. It’s the absolute plan. Y’know why? Because it’s simple.
Have a Terrible Twos Day. Throw a anger like you beggarly it! Floor’s open…What are you auspicious and badinage about today?
