Man, I've been fighting with this thing for a bit. Don't know if it's blogger or me.FIE!!
Sorry Paddy...I figured people are having trouble as we are having a large traffic day and no comments.
Cliff: Did REALLY mean to link to a story about Britney Spears???C'mon. Who the hell cares?
Oh barbara, I meant to link to that in the same vein I link to that legislator in Texas.I don't give a crap about her. The fact that someone is willing to pay a million for her hair and yet only about 40% of eligible voters bother...well I was making a point.
Hi CliffWow, the last thing I wanted to see today was a bald Britney Spears. You're killing me, man. :-|Oh...the other day a friend of mine was telling me that "there's this great new blog by a guy named Cliff, I think you'll like it!" Hmmm....you think she would have noticed the name and the humongous White Sox logo and figure I've already found it! You're getting to be quite a popular guy, my dear. Now don't go gettin' all "too big for your britches" and forget your first blog fans, ok?Oh...and if you think a bald Brit Spears is a sign of the apocalypse, you might want to check out Novak's column about the GOP firing the veteran-friendly committee chairman in order to save money. First the guy outs a CIA agent, now he's all patriotic. Go figure.
Hey, I never forget my roots Mary Ellen. We are on par to hit some serious page views today, but whatev, you're always my peeps.None of this would ever have happened if you guys had not come here first!
What do you guys think about the snap previews? I think they rock, and once they open (even for the comments thread) all you do is click on them and VOILA!!And John A's Neighbor Barbara...I'm working on getting us on haloscan comments like Americablog, but I had problems with their site today. Too frustrating, I will try again tomorrow. One of the best things about haloscan is you can comment and just minimize the window, keep it open and refresh for follow up comments. Will be great for liveblogging and Cspan watching!
Paddy Love the snap previews, but I'm not sure of the haloscan for comments. On the AmericaBlog site, I can't refresh. I have to shut down the comments and then click again everytime I want to see new comments come back. It's so aggravating, I rarely comment over there. I'm not sure if that is because of something that is blocked on my computer or what...I think it would be fun for all of us to meet over here for some of the primary's when all the results are coming in. Nothing like a party at Cliff's for a good time!
Party at Cliff's!...Yeah, we'll do a Cliff Schecter blog get together at some point.
Sounds good, Cliff! I'll bring the beer!
...and I'll bring McCain's leftover weenies from the Iowa Weenie Roast!
By the way, I like the Haloscan feature that shows you the auto-refresh but Haloscan is down ALL the time it seems.So, what good is the refresh if the comments don't work to begin with????
Hmm, interesting points y'all.Let me do some more checking around about it. I'd heard at one point that there was a commenting program that worked rather like the old IRC. (anyone remember that? Heh, good times)
Nothin' like a good weenie to make my day, Basheert!I like Haloscan a lot, but it does seem to cause headaches. However, it would be great for spontaneous convos among us Cliffies. I find it the easiest to use overall.I love the Snap feature, but at first it freaked me out. I thought it was some pop-up ad. But it's very cool, PaddyWaddy.Speaking of freaking out...Britney's wig? Carol Channing much?
Oh, and Bulldog? Falwell's never right.
Off topic:(via ABlog)"Pentagon intentionally hiding 1/2 of Iraq injured and wounded -- no wonder the health care budget for those troops isn't enough"
I for one.... think the Britney thing is important. I don't care about her either but it says a whole lot about how screwed up our values are. Besides a page is turning somewhere if people pity her.Did I read something about beer?
It seems to me that there is all this information out on the blogs about how the veterans are getting screwed at every turn by this administration, yet, I never see anything about it on CNN or in papers like the Chicago Tribune. I just have to wonder if this news will ever get out into the public. Instead, we have to hear stories about Britney Spears shaving her head. I need a beer. Fernando, want to join me?
Mary Ellen - If Nando declines, count me in. Oh wait. . I already have a beer. How rude of me! May I offer you one?
Mary Ellen:The WaPo set this all off yesterday with a front page expose of what's REALLY going on with the wounded at Walter Reed. Part two was printed today. Americablog has the whole story. This isn't hardly a blogosphere phenomenon. But John A is on a jihad. Bless that boy.
Cheers Mary Ellen, Cheers John.
Blog Party sounds great, Cliff! What coast are you on anyway?
OhMy God!!!I am a "Cliffie"???That is so totally awesomelully out-of-site cool!I would like to thank the press...my husband...and all you little people!!Thank you all..little people!!!I am eternally indebted to all of you for making this possible.(sigh)(by the way, Cliff is NOT in AZ)
John GoodThanks for the beer offer...now, if we can get some pretzels through this computer screen.....Cheers Fernando!John A's neighbor Barbara...thanks, for the info, I'll read it all tomorrow. I don't want to have nightmares tonight.
What a little party we got going here! I guess I am going to have to start doing open threads now.I am an Easter Coaster (although: that may just be changing soon. Will keep you all updated).
What a little party we got going here! I guess I am going to have to start doing open threads now.I am an East Coaster (although that may just be changing soon. Will keep you all updated).
What the hell is an Easter Coaster anyway?
CliffEaster Coaster? Is that one of those little knitted Easter bunny things my grandmother makes me put my drink on so I don't stain the coffee table when I visit her on Easter Sunday?
OK Cliff, now you're teasing us all...moving someplace warm???
Nope basheert. But likely someplace where there will be a lot of political action in 2008. Does that hint help?
ok, Cliff are you moving to Colorado to be there for the convention or will you stay an Easter Coaster and move to DC (if you're not already there)?And, no, I'm not trying to stalk you. I have Eschatonians that can vouch for me.
Ok, an answer. I am in DC now. If a few things work out right (a big consulting project, for example), due to lower housing costs, proximity to DC by flight and even car and nearness of family for my kid, I may soon be a....Columbus, Ohioan.That's right, call me Mr. Heartland!And I am totally hangin with paddy in Indiana!
