Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

05/18/2004: Interesting turnaround

From Allen Brill at The Village Gate:

I was stunned as I took a quick trip this afternoon with my radio tuned to Clear Channel. Rush had Roger Hedgecock subbing this afternoon and he's even more outrageous than Limbaugh. After pushing the Right's spin on today's events in Iraq--they've found the WMD!!!--he launched into a segment on the dangers of electronic voting. Unbelievable. This was a left-wing issue born in the blogosphere which was criticized as "tin foil hat" stuff by the righties in the blogosphere. Now the RNC talking points apparently include a swipe at their own Pioneer Club folks at Dielbold as an excuse for any "apparent" Dem victory in November.
I think we've just officially crossed into The Twilight Zone....

I'm looking around; Rod Serling has to be around here somewhere.

First tentative steps in energizing the fascist faithful to riot in the streets if somehow the will of the majority prevails and we have a real election and a real President in November. It would be ideal, because there seems to be a real chance Bush and his Band of Corruption may be repudiated at the polls. If we get real rioting and real unrest, he'd take the shot at declaring martial law. (Yeah, I know, with what?) and suppress the rioting and declare himself President until the "emergency" is over.

I have the dubious "honor" of having been a citizen of San Diego when Roger was Mayor and having Joe Scarborough as my Congressman.

Roger was good for tourism, instead of a Lilac festival we had the annual re-trial of the Mayor for fiscal impropriety in campaigns.

There are good, decent, intelligent conservatives. Why don't any of them get these media jobs?
