Do I have to Google all of these myself, or can I get some links over here?

Hasslbeck makes me want to puke!! Did you know that our Progressive Talk station (AM 1090) has a public service announcement about how important his family is running every damn hour??!!

God, I hate professional athletes since they clearly do not stand for the things I value. Things like healthcare for everyone, quality and funded public education, clean air and water, no unjustified war ect....

Until the Chickenhawks come out supporting progressive causes they can suck my dick!! And they better swallow too.

Has anyone checked as to whether or not Gonzales remembers/recalls that he did in fact resign? Has Bush announced that he still supports his AG, AG?

RE; Bush's speach here - did we have to fight the communists on the west coast after leaving Vietnam?

Hasselbeck must be a real ass*hole. He's anti-gay, too. His voice sounds really gay on that PSA, btw. Go Hawks!

Matt Hasslebeck and Bush? It's the Jesus thing probably. Mack Strong? I dunno.

since some of those stories are accidentally missing links, here's a funny observation to pass the time: click on the seattle weekly link under friends of slog. this made me laugh quite a bit...

Who FUCKED everything up?!

War on Cronyism...Doesn't this say all you need to know about the Bush that they need a law to make the president appoint people that are qualified? I remember a time way back in the 1990s when that was common sense.

#6 that ad has been up for a week on the Seattle Weekly link.

No wonder they choked in the Super Bowl and the conference semi-final if that's the type of performance they want out of a teammate.

Apologies for the missing links. I switched computers to finish up the MN last night and somehow a save got missed.

All is fixed.

Scariest rumor of the day:

possible replacement for Gonzales = Lieberman

The Governor of Delaware is a Republican and would appoint his
successor. That would give control of the Senate to the Republicans (assuming you consider Leiberman an independent)

is Matt Hasslebeck married to that chick from the view? they are both assholes. isnt Shaun Alexander a republican fuck too? what is up with this team, i've never seen any sports team so open about their political and religious views. usually they just play and shut up, unless they are thanking jesus for a thing or two.

Strong has always been a hardcore republican, he worked on rossi's campaign and did a bunch of ads for that republican k c executive candidate who beat up his mom. hasselbeck is a right wing christian.

but hey is not just football, edgar martinez is a republican so is jay buhner and most of the old Ms were republicans, i think lou pinella is too, and curt (bloody sock) schilling is a tool almost as right wing as rush, most athletes dont care about politics, those that do, with the exception of the greatest baseball player of all time A-Rod are republicans or worst, christians.

@14, People need to stop the Leiberman baiting. Yeah, he is wrong on the war; no doubt about that. BUT he still votes with the Democrats on other issues that do matter.

Frankly, the Democrats will have done this to themselves if he does go to the administration and we end up with a GOP Senate.

Man, the last month has been a real treat for Bush II.

Let's beg Dear Leader to tell us who gives the best head: Canadians, Mexicans, Britons or Seahawks.

Posted by Original Andrew | August 28, 2007 9:34 AM

Once again the Seahawks endear themselves to the citizens of Seattle. What a couple of tools.

@9 I hope my boss doesn't start requiring me to be competent.

And that hot dog picture negates all the wonderful appeal of yesterday's illustration. *absence of twinkle*

Is Lieberman no longer the junior Senator from Connecticut?

Posted by keshmeshi | August 28, 2007 9:55 AM

Matt and Mack can give a jersey to Bush, just so long as they are willing to give one to Hillary, too.
