Go ahead, take my Civil Rights, I wasn’t using them anyway.

I was alerted to the arrests in St. Paul when Amy Goodman was arrested, but I had no idea the arrests and spying were so systematic. The relative silence in the press is disturbing. See Glen Greenwald’s column and subsequent updates.

…how is our own Government’s behavior in Minnesota any different than what the Chinese did to its protesters during the Olympics (other than the fact that we actually have a Constitution that prohibits such behavior)?

..the point of the raids [is] to announce to citizens that they best stay in their homes and be good, quiet, meek, compliant people unless they want their homes to be invaded, their property seized, and have rifles pointed at them, too. The fact that this behavior is producing so little outcry only ensures, for obvious reasons, that it will continue in the future.

Live Blogging: Palin’s Speech: A Misogynist’s Dream

My gift to you. ‘ Pubs ‘ caught on tape saying how they really feel about Palin.

Huffington Post have outdone themselves having created the most complete coverage of Hottie 4 VP.

Somehow it feels like I am about to have one of those experiences — which have been happening with increasing frequency since Bush — the ones that remind you of the ole’ “Sometimes Truth is Stranger Than Fiction”. A week ago, you couldn’t have given me 1000 to 1 odds that the republicans and McCain would have picked this freak show as VP running mate.

Live Blogging: Stupid Things Overheard at The Republican Convention

Updated throughout the evening:

Oh great. Their gonna intersperse lip-synced pop tunes throughout the speeches. How Entertainment Tonight/Idol-esque.

…and promos about past Republican Presidents. This one us that Lincoln was a republican. As if todays ‘pubs’ would have freed the slaves.

Hi, My name is Tommy Espinoza. I am a Catholic, Hispanic, Democrat. And I am proud to call John McCain a friend.

You are probably asking, how can a democrat support John Mcain? Faith.

Somebody remind me to check what they’re paying these people to chirp like parrots.

They just showed a promo honoring George Bush for “strengthening the Clean Air Act.” No one mentioned that Jr. has ignored the Supreme Court’s order to enforce it

This is getting really boring. Some UPS guy on valium is reading the teleprompter.

I don’t know how much more I can stand.

Oooh. Hot looking ex military chick with EXCELLENT silicon implants! Just when I was about to change the channel. Sucked back in…

Some wanker put the teleprompters too far apart.

Pretty subdued crowd compared to the democratic convention.

Now a promo about a young military hero that was really disciplined and obedient and got killed and a Medal of Honor.

Laura Bush on lithium.
