The Commonwealth of Blogistan

Formerly known as "The People's Republic of Blogistan," we are under "New Management," so to speak. (cough). The "Real Westerners" pledge a democratic and clean government based on the virtues of honesty, decency, and hard work. We accept all major credit cards but are sometimes closed on weekends. No vaccinations are required, but a current passport and a visa are necessary. Inquire before traveling.

I am a fictional construct originally conceived as a pen name for articles in the Los Angeles FREE PRESS at the 2000 Democratic Convention. The plume relating to the nom in question rests in the left hand of Hart Williams, about whom, the less said, the better. Officially "SMEARED" by the Howie Rich Gang. And now, smeared by Fox News and Sean Hannity, as well! Plus, FEARED by Ted Nugent! AND Hated by the Freepers!

Anyone know where this comes from?

Filtered through various media styles. (I have written the headline BEFORE looking at the actual story, linked, if present).

  • New York Post Style ( but not ideology):

    Bush to Poor Kids: Drop Dead

  • New York Times Style:

    Juvenile Health Measure Stymied

  • CounterPunch Style:

    How Big Pharma and Big Tobacco Collaborated to Kill Children's Health Care

  • Weekly Standard Style:

    Defeatocrat Tots Turned Back by Our Brave War President


The veto originated with the Roman consuls and tribunes. Either of the two consuls holding office in a given year could block a military or civil decision by the other; any tribune had the power to unilaterally refuse legislation passed by the Roman Senate.

No word on plans to make Bush's horse a Senator.
