Sorry I haven't been posting regularly. Don't worry: I'm working on some projects and the time is not right to tell you about them. Be patient. I've read some good articles lately: Today's E.J. Dionne column was good and tomorrow's Harold Meyerson column is excellent.

Just Curious
The attempt to attack John Kerry over his Purple Heart is the latest example of the right's shameless attempt to destroy anyone in its way. Douglas Brinkley has a good rebuttal to the charges that Kerry didn't deserve the medal. In the most recent news story that the Kerry campaign is posting Kerry's Navy records online, it states that "[c]onservatives, talk radio hosts and some newspaper editorials have questioned the seriousness of his injuries and whether the Massachusetts senator was deserving of the three Purple Hearts, which resulted in his reassignment out of Vietnam." I haven't had the chance to listen to Limbaugh lately but in case El Rushbo was part of this chorus, I have one question: Was Kerry's shrapnel wound bigger than the cyst on Limbaugh's ass?
UPDATE: Limbaugh on Kerry's Purple Hearts. What a dick.

The Googlebomb is Working!
The "Christopher Ruddy" Googlebomb (see previous post) is a success! I'm now at number three. Thanks to all who helped out.

Help Me With a Googlebomb!
Fucking-A! I just found out that my site comes up sixth for a Google search of the phrase "Christopher Ruddy." For those of you not familiar with this site, Christopher Ruddy is a noisome little prick who gained infamy and fortune as one of Richard Mellon Scaife's errand boys who spread rumors that the Clintons were responsible for the deaths of Vince Foster and Ron Brown (there's also the rumor that Ruddy is Tammy Bruce's lesbian lover; note to dittoheads, the previous sentence was a joke). The Google search goes to my September 2003 archives because of my article on Ruddy and other Scaife whores.

Let's try to bring my site to the top of a Google search: If you are a blogger or a newsgroup poster, then link the phrase "Christopher Ruddy" to the following web address: http://scoobiedavis.blogspot.com/2003_09_01_scoobiedavis_archive.html


Reason Number 3752 Not To Trust Drudge
The Air America flap


Darn!
I just got back from the premiere of 13 Going on 30 in Westwood. I went, of course, to sneak into the premiere after-party. No such luck: there wasn't an after-party (at least not an official one). I wanted to crash and tell Jennifer Garner that I loved Dude, Where's My Car? (I said that to Seann William Scott at the Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back premiere and he gave me a huge shit-eating grin). I also wanted to ask Ms. Garner for a date. Okay, she's out of my league but I figure I have more of a chance of getting a date with Jennifer Garner than Ralph Nader has of being elected president.

Paul Krugman Tells It Like It Is
I heard the Paul Krugman interview on Air America’s Morning Sedition last week. A caller asked Krugman why Clinton was investigated from the begining of his presidency to the end and George W. Bush has received little scrutiny. Krugman summed it up succinctly:

The short answer is “Yes Virginia, there is a vast right wing conspiracy.”

[Laughter from hosts]

The Clinton scandals--none of them, except for Monica—was there anything to it. And it was this constant era of scandal that was fomented by a network of think tanks, publications—of which were funded by a handful of angry and personally dysfunctional billionaires. And that’s basically what happened and the media fell for it and continue to circulate it. . . So that’s what happened to Clinton and the same machinery is now turned not against the man in the White House but against anyone who criticizes the man in the White House and that’s the big difference between the two.


What an Amateurish Operation
I checked the calendar on Ralph Nader's campaign web site (so that I could find out when Nader would be in LA so that I could heckle him) and last week's schedule is on the site.


Krugman Quote Tonight
I'll have a Paul Krugman quote tonight that you can't find anywhere on the web.

Relief
I finally got to listen to the O'Franken Factor. I was pleasantly surprised that Franken is taking excerpts from Limbaugh's and Hannity's radio show and scrutinizing them. I was doing this (scroll down for recent criticisms), but for the past couple weeks, I have not been able to do so because of my new job. I'm glad someone is doing it.
UPDATE: Franken's weblog has more on Hannity's lies--scroll down to 4/6 (via Atrios).

Posting Tonight
I know I promised to post the long article last night but I took a nap and woke up at 6 in the morning. I have to get ready for my new flunky job so I will have to postpone it until tonight. Sorry.


Monday, April 05, 2004


Random Stuff
I'll have the longer post I promised tonight--I won't go to bed before I post it . . . I saw a guy on the bus today--let's call him Retro-Man. Retro-Man was wearing a brown polyester leisure suit. Now it's been at least 28 years since his clothing could even arguably be described as fashionable. How does one explain this? I've come up with the following options: 1) he was into vintage clothing; or 2) he was too poor to be choosy about clothing; 3) he has an f-you attitude about fashion; 4) he's trying to be ironic; 5) he has no fashion sense; 5) He was from a country in which this type of clothing is considered safari-wear. Any other thoughts? . . . I had to give up cable and it pisses me off. One show I just discovered blew my mind. Zuma Dogg is a show that shows that you don't need a big budget for quality television. Zuma Dogg is a hilarious in-your-face public access show in which this febrile guy named Zuma Dogg has frenetic stream-of-consciousness rants in public. He has talent . . . I can't wait to see Spider-Man 2 . . .


Posting Tonight--I Promise
I know I wrote that I would be posting over the weekend but things came up. I will post tonight.

Lame Talk Radio Versus Dynamic Talk Radio
Last week, I found out that pseudo-Democrat Tammy Bruce just got a nationally syndicated radio show (it’s on Saturdays from 4-7PM PST).

BRUCE’S MODUS OPERANDI: For those of you not familiar with Bruce, she’s a right-wing shill who poses as a Democrat for fun and profit. Let me discuss Bruce’s balancing act: she acts like a loyal Democrat but does nothing but slam Democrats as intolerant (e.g., Bruce’s book The New Thought Police). At the same time, Bruce gives credibility to people who have nothing less than the goal of the destruction of the Democratic Party (e.g., Scaife errand boys Chris Ruddy and David Horowitz as well as Roger Ailes, Sean Hannity and G. Gordon Liddy). The books listed on her web site’s books selections include tomes by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Ann Coulter, Bernard Goldberg, and David Horowitz. Yuck.

THE CONSEQUENCES OF BRUCE’S MEDIA WHORING: For Bruce, it means book deal as well as radio and Fox News gigs in which she kisses George W. Bush’s ass. For people like Fox News’ Ailes, it means a defense against charges that he’s not “fair and balanced” because Bruce is ostensibly a Democrat; at the same time, Ailes and the right benefit because supposed Democratic “balancers” like Bruce have nothing but vitriol for Democrats. The results for the American public: painful rectal itching due to all the smoke blown up their butts.

THE SOLUTION: Media hackers like me who aren’t afraid to take the fight to the right; we should expose shills like Bruce. I’ve had the chance of confronting Bruce on these matters a couple times in the past when she was on talk radio. A couple months ago, I suggested that since she had such a good time rubbing elbows with and whoring for the most noxious media people on the right that she should take the plunge and get her lame ass out of the Democratic Party and the progressive movement. My most recent action was to call into the debut of Bruce’s radio show the Saturday before last. I took a different strategy this time: instead of confronting her as I had done previously, I acted like a live one—I took the role of a mouthbreathing Freeper-type in order to find out how Bruce would respond. I made sure to bring up some of the nefarious activities of her right-wing cronies. I also wanted her input on the Air America radio network, which was starting up a few days after her show debuted. I only got a couple sentences in before she muted my line. Here’s how the transcript of my call to her show [I posed as Harold]:

BRUCE: Let’s take some more of your calls here. To Harold, calling from KABC, our flagship in Los Angeles, you’re on with Tammy Bruce. What’s on your mind, Harold?

SCOOBIE: Congratulations on your new show. I predict that your show will succeed and that forthcoming liberal talk radio network [Air America] will fail miserably. And the reason is because conservative talk radio and the internet succeed because they report what the mainstream media doesn’t report.

BRUCE: Yeah.

SCOOBIE: And one example of that is: if it weren’t for people like G. Gordon Liddy, Roger Ailes, and Chris Ruddy, we wouldn’t know how the Clintons were responsible for the death of Vince Foster and [suppressing a snicker] other kinds of Clinton scandals during the 1990’s.

BRUCE: You know, even if there is disagreement, because I also write a column which runs on NewsMax.com and also on David Hororwitz’s site FrontPage Magazine.com—the other reason why the so-called liberal network won’t work is because people who listen to radio talk shows—whether they be liberal or conservative—expect details to be able to be dealt with; they expect to be able to hear honest discussions about what’s going on. And part of my contention—Harold, thank you so much for the call—one reason why liberals—actual liberals, leftists—don’t do well, is because they can’t deal with details. One of my biggest indications and what I’ve been complaining about in my first book, The New Thought Police, and this is why I can state a question directly and know why I’m not going to vote for John Kerry because I don’t feel safe if he was president. The left for so long has been used to dealing with serious issues by name-calling. . .So what’s happened is that liberals, consequently, and that name-calling has worked, have not had to deal with the details of serious social issues and the ability to debate has atrophied, and it remains a name-calling debacle.

REALITY: Will Air America succeed? If and only if progressives are smart. When El Rushbo and Bruce’s friends were running roughshod over Bill Clinton in the 1990’s, progressive pundits and Democratic politicians stood by and did very little. It took a comedy writer, Al Franken--not a politician or pundit—to stand up to Limbaugh. Franken has done much more since then—taking on Coulter, Bush, Hannity, Ruddy, Ailes, and O’Reilly in Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them (I downloaded the audio of Franken’s confrontation with O’Reilly on Kazaa and it is hilarious). Progressives owe a big debt of gratitude to Franken.

However, I don’t think people should listen to Air America radio out of a feeling of obligation; they should do it because it’s radio that slams. The Air America radio network has been around for just one week and it is da bomb. I work days so I haven’t heard much of the O’Franken Factor but the shows I have heard were excellent. Far from name-calling, the hosts discuss the issues. It’s the opposite of right-wing hate radio shows and their paranoid conspiracy theories (which are also shared by Bruce’s friends Ruddy and Ailes). Here are a just a few of the things I heard in my limited listening time:

Randi Rhodes mocking and haranguing Ralph Nader (I’ll discuss this later). . . An interview with John Carlos Frey, director of the film, The Gatekeeper. . . An interview with Larry David. . . Janeane Garofalo on Laura “Shut up and sing” Ingraham. . . In an interview with Madeline Albright, Randi Rhodes asked the former UN ambassador if she was concerned that so many on the right have an apocalyptic view of the Middle East inspired by the Book of Revelation. . . Janeane Garofalo and Sam Seder discussed how a man with degrees from two Ivy League schools like Bush could claim the jury was still out on evolution. . . Hilarious parody public services announcements skewering Rush Limbaugh, Jerry Falwell, O’Reilly, and John Stossel. . . Garofalo and Seder talking about John Dean’s new book Worse Than Watergate. . .A discussion of paperless voting machines. . . In an interview with Helen Thomas, Sam Seder asked Thomas about her departure from UPI when self-proclaimed messiah Sun Myung Moon took it over. You won’t hear those kinds of things on NPR.

THINGS TO DO:

1) Check out Air America radio. Listen on the web if it not available on the radio in your area.
2) If you’re a blogger, link to Air America.
3) Email Tammy Bruce at heytammybruce@yahoo.com and tell her to get a life and get off of the I’m-a-principled-Democrat/right-wing-shill gravy train.
