Clearly, Maybe they like the lash and just want you to use it now and then.Just sayin'Or maybe his vote doesn't count for much in Congress.

Thomas Collins, for whom the magical season is still 1967 with Yaz, Gentleman Jim and the whole magical crew led by Dick Williams.

Wow. All this time I have been following JOM and never realized that TM's nickname is MinuteMan. Learn something new every day.

As to NOW, I suspect they have concluded that Letterman is no longer useful to their agenda, so he can be thrown under the NOW bus.

Memo to talk show hosts: if a good part of your comedic act is making fun of the erotic foibles of politicians, keep your own erotic house a little less messy than Letterman keeps his.

hit and run

Well, to be fair, NOW put Letterman in the http://www.now.org/issues/media/hall-of-shame/index.php/television/letterman-palin-daughter>NOW Hall of Shame when Dave went after Willow Palin.

During that episode, the NOW recommendedation was:

Take Action: Write to CBS and tell them what you think.

Now, NOW is going so far as to say...

"The National Organization for Women calls on CBS to recognize that Letterman's behavior creates a toxic environment and to take action immediately to rectify this situation. With just two women on CBS' board of directors, we're not holding our breath."

I think NOW wants CBS to write CBS a strongly worded letter telling CBS how bad Letterman is or something.

I can't tell.

Dave (in the People's Banana Republic of MA)

Banging interns was OK in 1998. What changed?

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Letterman threw spitballs from his own glass house

NEW YORK (AP) - Some of the politicians zinged by David Letterman over the years for their indiscretions are offering pity and advice for the scandalized talk show host.

They all have something to say: Foley, Spitzer, Sanford, and much more.

Gregory Koster

Tom Collins: NOW has a bus? Surely that's too big and masculine for them. An empty baby buggy with a specimen preserving jar in it is what Dave is now under. Probably can't tell the difference...


I have noticed the female posters here getting preferential treatment....
just saying..

I'm not asking for the 2 Million right now, but I'm keeping watch.

Captain Hate

Reading Sara's link: Sanford's as big a douche about Letterman as he was about his own problems. Actually I'm grateful that his future prospects went in the toilet over the summer rather than have all the squishes at NR fawn over him until a later denoument. Good riddance.

Captain Hate

denoument == denouement

Dave (in MA)

I was under the impression that NOW had a Subaru.


The smug liberals are mad at the smug liberal.....


Yeah, Where is NOW?

My only hope is that Carla Bruni sends Michelle a pair. ;)

Lol, daddy.
Breaking News: PACIFIC OCEAN EARTHQUAKE -- Tsunami advisories issued for Hawaii: 8.1

You know CBS is getting of way to easy here.
To say Lettermen works for World Wide Pants (WWP) and not us is a huge cop-out they are getting away with.

Let's say, we find that all of Lettermens sexual escapades weren't completely consensual, and some female employee comes forward and says she felt she had to sleep with him or lose her job.
Will CBS say, no problem, as long as WWP doesn't have a policy - Dave can stay?

Or what if we find that he actually did threaten some young interns job and forced her to have sex, maybe even roughed her up a bit...is CBS still going to say he's not our employee?

Or what if we find he ran a dog fighting ring and killed several dogs on his property through sadistic torture. Would CBS say - go ask WWP what their Dog fighting policy is.

It's a complete cop-out and the press is letting them get away with it. People should be putting some pressure on CBS to take responsibility for their creation.


Sanford turned to be a complete fraud, not just personally but fiscally. Spitzer, was
more of the same. he wanted to parlay his faux crime fighter rep into a White House run and he almost made it, ruining many lives along the way


Wow, Ann, those are some interesting shoes. I can so see MaBelle Michelle wearing those to the soup kitchen or the farmer's market.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

The AP reported:

Levi Johnston is going for the ultimate exposure—his bare body.

Posing nude for Playgirl is next for the 19-year-old father of Sarah Palin's grandchild. Johnston's attorney, Rex Butler, said Wednesday that a formal agreement has not been reached with the online magazine but adds it's a "foregone conclusion" it will happen.

Johnston fathered a child with Bristol, the 18-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice presidential candidate and former Alaska governor.

JM Hanes


So, you're telling me I already have to give up my brand new bunny slippers?


JM: those are some really cool bunny slippers!!!

What can they do? They look like they should DO something.

...or to a medal of honor ceremony, or Malia's wedding for that matter...


How to put this delicately, is political derangement getting in the way of common sense publishing. I noticed how they put
Michelle in People and Maxim's most beautiful, which devalues the cache, and who they left out. Vanity Fair, going hog
wild in their run down Sarah crusade, and now this ahem publication is putting Levi
on display. Well he's going to have to pay
child support one way or another

JM Hanes

ccal: "They look like they should DO something."

You're thinking of my working bunnies:

Running Slippers
Gregory Koster

Sara, good God. Can't he be drafted and sent to Washington as part of The One's honor guard?

CCal, the 9:36's are JMH's working slippers. They double as optical mice, which means when JMH gets on the treadmill for a workout, he can still post stuff here, typing and micing at twenty miles an hour. Drags up the average post level to boot. The 9:55's are for when it's bumper car time...


Gregory, dear, you are making a newbie mistake. One I made - oh so many moons ago -- JM Hanes is a she not a he!

Don't worry, SHE loves the confusion.

Melinda  Romanoff


Those remind me of this story by Steve Martin, The Cruel Shoes. LUN

Almost wet my pants laughing.


You are wrong Hit! If you go over to the Puff Ho, you will see that there is a pair of shoes for just about anything MaBelle is "stepping out" for.

The Malia wedding shoes are there. And - I kid you not - there are even medal of honor award ceremony shoes on display, too.

No, I do not provide a link. I want you to visualize first. In your wildest VIMH dreams, you can only hope to manifest the shoes our very chic First Lady is probably shopping for as I write.


Plus, I am stalling for time - Ann may surprise you.

Melinda  Romanoff


You have had to have heard of the short story by Steve Martin I am touting, LUN.

Melinda  Romanoff

Or I'll start posting more vegetable recipes...


I don't know how I missed the cues about who JM was, sometimes I'm just not that
attentive at times.

JM Hanes

Melly: Too cruel, too perfect! The wincing made it a little hard to laugh though.

hit and run

You are wrong Hit!

Not so fast, my friend (Lee Corso).

I cannot be wrong, because you worded it...

I can so see MaBelle Michelle wearing those...

I don't care if Michelle goes barefoot to Malia's wedding (though I do hope she shaves her toes first), I can still see her wearing those shoes.

Wait. Does that mean the post-IED-cammo dress was pre-planned too?

Or just the shoes?

Melinda  Romanoff


You better read it too. LUN.

Melinda  Romanoff


From the male perspective, it's the perfect explanation, or so I'm told.

JM Hanes

There weren't supposed to be any cues, narciso, although I've relaxed my standards considerably since my coming out party here. ccal is right, I do enjoy the confusion, which I never correct anywhere else. I'm still gender neutral in other venues, and use an unrelated screen name when I want to comment as a woman.

JM Hanes

Melinda: I daresay, hit is not the only one around here with a VIMH, although his has a certain special je ne sais quoi.

Melinda  Romanoff


You think you speak for yourself, not always.


Melinda  Romanoff


but he answers it.

I stick to memos, with time stamps.

JM Hanes


Gregory Koster

Ccal: Oooohh, it was a typing mistake, I meant to stick an 's' there....Not gonna buy it, hey? Don't blame you, even Rolo would laugh at this lameness.

Ms. JMH, I am caught, squarely. The only way I've ever been able to fly is to march through minefields. So Skyward ho!

From Mr. GK

Melinda  Romanoff

G'night all.

JM Hanes

I like the optical footwear concept though, GK. I could knit tea cosies while I surfed the net.


I found another set of motivators, with a twist, in the LUN

Uncle BigBad

OT - Sibel Edmonds is back, and she is pointing fingers, mostly at Jews and Republican congressmen.

I know some in our JOM community are knowledgeable about State Department and congressional intrigues (from the Plame era), and I would like everyone to read the linked article and comment.

My BS meter is on high, but it all sounds so plausible.


"Je ne sais quoi"

Thanks JMH, for the continuing education:

"Main Entry: je ne sais quoi
Pronunciation: \zhə-nə-ˌsā-ˈkwä\
Function: noun
Etymology: French, literally, I know not what
Date: circa 1656
: something that cannot be adequately described or expressed"

I think ">http://gadgets.boingboing.net/gbcshoe3.jpg"> these Peek-a-boo's, err Peek-a -chu's, have that certain "je ne sais quoi?"

Main non?


Wow, this is fascinating.

While googling for info on that 7.9 earthquake today in the mid Pacific, I came upon ">http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsus/Maps/special/Alaska.php"> this USGS Map of earthquakes in Alaska. If I read it correctly, subtracting for Canada, we have had 267 Earthquakes in Alaska within the last week.

But what's even worse than that, is that the Brit's are now dissing us for lousy chow. They say our old standard ">http://www.adn.com/3437/story/964743.html"> Jellied Moose Nose is even worse than Haggis.
Bah, humbug:(


Any thing with Phil Giraldi, one of the slanderers of Ledeen, for Sy Hersh, who was suggested that the Jews were satisfied at least not complicent in 9/11, really should
be flagged. Now of the Bin Ladens, including
the late Mohammed Jamal Khalifah, nothing should be left off the tabled. The same could be of various other Middle East clans in Gulf States. Interesting any mention of Brewster Jennings, or as I call "Credite
Delphine" was left out of this report


Well, I am impressed with both Mel and daddy being so up on shoe follies.

Old Lurker

"we have had 267 Earthquakes in Alaska within the last week"

Those were all George Bush's fault.

Charlie (Colorado)

BTW, daddy, the Thanksgiving plans are probably off: my uncle in Fairbanks died yesterday.


That's so sad, Charlie! I'm sorry for your loss.


There is justice in the world .. sometimes ..

David Letterman's sensational sex scandal has triggered a $300 million divorce war between the 62-year-old talk-show host and his outraged wife Regina, say sources close to the star.


I'm sorry to hear that, Charlie. My condolences.


Sorry about that Charlie, my condolences


Very sorry Charlie.

Well take a snow-check.

JM Hanes

Mais oui, mon petit shoe!


JM Hanes

So sorry to hear that, Charlie. I'm not sure why, but a change of season always seem to make the loss more piercing.


"Well, I am impressed with both Mel and daddy being so up on shoe follies.

Ughh, sorry to have to 'fess up to your observation CC, but ">http://www.thetoyzone.com/2009/blog/21-shoes-that-every-geek-would-love/"> If The Shoe Fits...


cc and JMH,

Sorry, I missed the shoe news.

However, daddy, just linked to a wonderful birthday gift idea for hit:

The Reef Dram Sandal for men features a hidden flask to smuggle your favorite libation into any sporting event, concert, or mind-numbing lecture.

Thanks daddy, I needed a laugh. A dreary day here and ugly news I can hardly bear anymore.

I turned off the computer and the T.V. last night after hearing the news that Dole supported government health care. And now the Taliban are good guys. GOOD GRIEF!


Charlie, Very sorry to hear about your uncle.


Am with you in that foul mood Ann,

Insty reported on Monday that Frist said he'd support it also. Too bummed to track it down...


Letterman is fine; he never was the “Family Values” type. Yes, he probably cheated on his girlfriend now wife. But at least he does go around claiming he is Mr. “Family Values” like some of our politicians/ preachers (can you just see the grin on all “Fake News” reporters/ commentators and the Palin fringe). This has been a tough summer, for Dave, for our economy but at least he did not end up on the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Sanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC). Did I miss the NOW statement of outrage with Senator John Ensign? They are so irrelevant.
