Enjoy your July 4th weekend, folks!
Per my good friend Rodney’s recommendation:
Lincoln Durham – “Mud Puddles”
Here’s one from this past South by Southwest at Threadgill’s in Austin -“Living This Hard”
And one more: “Reckoning Lament”
You guys have a great nite. Be safe.
Carol at No Sheeples Here is doing us all a great service by promoting the ladies who promote team spirit and the spirit of competition that made this country great. Thanks to Carol for allowing us a bit of distraction from the politics of the day. And thanks to the fearless General Robert “Bob” Kurtz Belvedere of The Camp of the Saints for judging the festivities. Dangerous work, that.
Seeing as how I won the first round, I don’t hold too much hope for a victory in the second. However, that doesn’t mean I won’t give it the olde college try, IYKWIMAITYD.
So, without further ado, here are my entries for Round II:
Note: Some of these get waaaaay bigger with the single use of your clicker.
For some reason, I feel a sudden urge to go swimming, or boating, or something.
Be sure to check out the Sweater Puppies Contest roundups at Carol’s place:

Not Rule 5 butÂ how can you ignore this title? —> I Want To Be A Manic Pixie DreamÂ Girl
Gator Doug brings Linkfest-a-palooza.
Maggie has a very lovely bond girl.
Is William Teach accusing me of having man-boobs?
Sorry for that visual.
Rinse your head out with this from The Watcher: Kristen Bell
American Power doubles down: “Rule 5 hotness along with some counter-jihad blogging.”
What a concept.
Carol, of the blog No Sheeples Here has opened the Second Annual March Madness Sweater Puppy Contest to pick the best cheerleading attire and whomever represents their school in the most wholesome and attractive way. Or something.
Personally, I welcome the competition and promise to leave no stone unturned to find the breast ladies for the contest.
Luckily for us, the contest will be co-judged by a man withÂ unquestionable impartiality and who possessesÂ impeccable taste in Rule 5 goodness, General Robert “Bob” Belvedere of The Camp of the Saints fame.
Now then, to show that I have no particular bias, I’ll post a photo of a lovely Duke Daisy first.
Hey! Those aren’t cheerleaders!
(Showing my March Madness ignorance here, is a Texas college even in the thing? Not that I really care…)
I’ll be updating this post with other Sweater Puppy and Rule 5 entries as the weekend progresses so check back later. Right now, I’m off to do some recording.
My friend Teresa from Teresamerica reminded me of a story that the lefties at the NAACP refuse to admonish members of their side for the raaaaacist calls for violence against Supreme Court Judge Clarence Thomas at the ‘Quarantine the Koch Brothers’ rally. Isn’t the NAACP supposed to be an advocate for civil rights much like the most righteous ACLU?
Hat Tip to Michael Berry for finding the Daily Caller story.
On a side note, while I was looking for other stories to go along with this one, I did a little Bing search for “dems denounce racist threats at rally‘ which I was sure would return a bazillion hits pointing to their outrage and calls for civility but instead, returned this result:
Funny how it easily found calls from republicans calling out their own for veering out of the pasture, and dems calling the TEA Party raaaaacists. Never mind the fact that none of those accusations were ever proven. Then, I thought, why not try the ‘News’ tab:
Hmmm. That’s interesting. No news at all? No dems have ever been reported to have denounced racism at any rally? I thought they were against racism. Bing, maybe I need to spell it out for you:
Notice it included the Egyptian denouncement of something or other, and down lower right, it found an article on Rep. Moran accusing republicans of being racist.
Then, the search engine politely asked me:
Do you want results only for democrats denounce racist threats at rally?
To be fair, I changed ‘democrat’ to republican’ and it didn’t find anything for those search terms in the ‘news’ tab either, but when switched to the ‘Web’ tab both search sets returned a larger set of results:
I’m not trying to prove anything here. Just noticing an interesting find and tweaking the geeks who program the search engines. I mean, really? Not one ‘News’ item for those search terms? I hear it on radio and read articles on that very subject almost every day. Why does a search engine have trouble spotting them? Is there a blind spot in your ‘News’ algorithm? (Al-Gore-ithm?)
Maybe Al forgot to include that bit of code when he invented the interwebz.
Found at American Digest, who says:
As a boy I would have strangled a thousand kittens to have something like this. As a man, I feel the same way.
As I commented at A.D., Awesomely useless. I want to see it in person.
I’d bet Steve over at Motor City Times would get a kick out of this.
