FRED. FRED. FRED. ^____^

As an anodyne for the shattered nerves of my leftie friends who have gotten the vapors and the shakes with Fred Thompson's unconventional entry into the '08 Presidential race, I offer this evidence of Bush Estrangement Syndrome from Peggy Noonan*. And to paraphrase Bill Quick, once you've lost Peggy Noonan, you've lost the Republican party. (Ed Driscoll) Also, enjoy this laffo telemarketing script from the RNC, courtesy of Iowahawk! It'll take some of the sting out of Fred & Rudy's** impending pwnag3 of whatever dodgy duo the Donks decide to send out next year. Or not.

More seriously, Colby Cosh dusts off his premature eulogy for a landmark in Toronto, and wonders why the record companies can't seem to learn from the example of Starbucks and the clicks-n-mortar bookstores. Also, Albertans' bedtime prayer, and a list of the top 10 porn names of major league baseball players.

On the flip side of Alberta (which would be West Virginia), Don Surber deals out back-to-back smackdowns: first to the great unwashed excessively opinionated but ill-informed among us, and then to the ignorant president of Clean Air Watch. Stick that in your coal hole, buddy.

*Four years late, you say? Heh.
**Thompson/Giuliani 2008 FTW. You read it here first.

Re: Fred!
It really seems to rattle some peoples' cages that we've found another actor/politician who actually lives and breathes the conservative philosophy. I don't think Fred is Reagan 2.0 - he has his own very distinctive life and career - but he has a lot of the same virtues, and that response to Michael Moore was just killer. "Psychiatric treatment, Mike. Maybe you should think about that." ROFL!

I can see Rudy settling for VP, especially if he got DHS and a mandate to rip that sucker apart until it worked.

Re: Fred!
Also he does not at this point fit the stereotype for Reps, evil, stupid or both.

Re: Fred!
Hey and the fact that he has acting creds is a plus in politics.

Re: Fred!
That'll last until he actually gets the nomination. :3

I visited SamTRM the last time I was in Toronto, and I have no idea how the place is in business -- $26.99 for a record by a local (to Toronto) band that I could buy at Know Name or Roadrunner or the Fetus for $15.00! I might begin to see it if it was still CAN$1 = 75% US$1, but this was in 2006!

They're not, any more, and the same goes for a lot of record stores all across North America. People need to wise up and start running music stores that double as cocktail lounges. Related: I don't think people want the 50s and 60s back so much as they want to salvage some of the cool stuff from those years and give it some true 21st century flavor as opposed to the schlocky Space Age veneer so many of those places had.
