Hi Dudette, I felt the breeze as you whizzed by!
Hey maryl! Pure luck! I just happened to turn around, saw the door open and snuck right in that bad boy! :-D
Quick reflexes, quick thinking – that’s you, Dudette!
I wish! :-)

Does anyone know how to photograph an ever-moving puppy without it looking like this? Thanks. http://t.co/VHXaEnyRxK— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) November 05, 2013
Actually, I’ve seen ads for a phone which helps with taking pictures of moving fleshstorms. At the moment, though, I can’t recall what phone it is.
It’s an LG G2 smartphone.
Thank you. Jeez, I’ve only seen the ad a hundred times, you’d think I’d remember. But I can’t upgrade for another 3 months, so I’m avoiding salivating over phones.

OMG – do you forget already what Scout Tufankjian said about my awesome horse poo pics?!?!?! Even Scout – or Pete Souza – would struggle to snap sooooooo uncooperative a model!
I believe Scout was trying to comfort you when Rooney was being treated like Chris Christie at a Tea Party rally.
I’m dizzy! Is the room supposed to be spinning and blurry like that? :-)
That photo needs to go into your portfolio—–along with your port-a-potty gems and your horse deposit scenic vistas. All are coffee table book ready. Step aside, Pete Souza. :)
My camera has a sports setting with an extremely high shutter speed for subjects in motion. I use it for the dogs and I use it for the crumb snatchers.
Congrats to you, Dudette:)
Thank you, df! :-D
In the 1980s….there was a song….You don’t have to take your clothes off. I don’t remember the singer. A one hit wonder, no doubt. When I saw Jon Karl getting pointy, animated and raising his voice……for some weird reason, that was the song that popped into my head. It has remained there since this afternoon.
You mean this? :-)
Oh Lord, no. That is the song. We made fun of it. The singer was not that good, not particularly a great dancer, trying so hard to get noticed and be seen as the IT. More like Jon Karl at the WHPC event today……..trying so hard.
Well, Prince Rogers Nelson was it for me. I saw him 3 times and the band member that wore surgical outfit was two houses away from a relative’s home.
Thanks Dudette. This song will be in my head all week. ;)
Hmm… maybe it’s Kiss (the Prince version isn’t available online, but here’s Tom Jones)

……..and while scrolling down this is what you see.
I should also clarify(from Reader) when I mean “Post Title” what I mean is by clicking on “The President and the Chicago BlackHawks” or in this case “Jay Carney: myth debunker” that is the new box that pops up. Previously it would load the TOD thread. It even allows you to read all the comments, reply, on top of seeing the whole post. Now you have to click “View Original” to get to TOD. Somebody second this notion……or leave me in the crazy corner :(

The sad thing is that many who suffer will blame the President.
It never ceases to amaze me how there is so much attention to the President while the party that controls the House ,hence “the purse”, is IN REALITY in control of the general domestic agenda.
If the shutdown has had any positive effect, it’s that at least SOME independents and some republicans are very well aware now of WHO is gumming up the works and WHO is for austerity.
Does anyone know what happened on that ENDA cloture vote? It took forever, and Murkowski didn’t vote. Worse than that, neither did McCaskill! At one point, they had the sound on and I heard loud voices. At the end, they got enough, plus 1, but it seems something happened to muck things up. They ended up getting Ayotte to vote yes and Portman. I want to see Mark Kirk’s speech from the floor (his first since his stroke). This yes vote obviously meant a lot to him.
Cloture (end of debate) passed 61-30.
McCaskill was attending a funeral. ENDA cloture was reached with 61 AYES and there will likely be a vote later in the week.

7 Republicans voted for ENDA: Ayotte NH, Collins ME, Hatch UT, Heller NV, Kirk IL, Portman OH & Toomey PA— Jamie Dupree (@jamiedupree) November 04, 2013
Thanks. I’m glad to know this. I mean, not that she was at a funeral, but that the House gops won’t have her non-vote as a reason to point fingers (not that they need one).
that’s what I said.
Guess sometimes pigs do fly.
I know it’s Politico, but this article explains how they got Ayotte, Portman and Toomey (through amendments). The article also states that President Obama doesn’t rule out an executive order to protect federal contractors from anti-gay discrimination, although he prefers it be legislated. And the article spoke of Mark Kirk’s speech. I don’t mind Politico when they stick to facts, and this was an informative one.
btw, Happy Birthday!

Don't blame National Dems if Buono loses tomorrow. Blame NJ Dems: articles.philly.com/2013-11-03/new… #p2 #NJGov— PragmaticObotsUnite (@PragObots) November 05, 2013
On the way to what polls indicate will be a landslide reelection victory Tuesday over Democrat Barbara Buono, the Republican governor is touting bipartisanship by spending more time with Democrats than with politicians of his own party.
“It’s been several years he’s been working on these relationships,” said Ben Dworkin, a Rider University political scientist.
Over his first term Christie has sidled up to members of the state’s powerful Democratic establishment with unprecedented ardor – and they to him.
Sixty local Democratic elected officials have endorsed Christie.
What the heck is wrong with these people?
don’t blame ANY dems anywhere. THE “NEWS” MEDIA is the problem….everywhere. no republican could get away wit what they do without “the news” providing the cover for their lies and constant failure everywhere they are.
That’s NUTS. NUTS. Have those guys paid any attention to Christie’s POLICIES ???? to his VETOES ?
I can understand that rank and file democrats who don’t pay attention to politics and who are misinformed by the shallow and stupid media can be fooled by the populism style of Christie. What I don’t understand is when democratic ELECTED OFFICIALS fall into the Christie’s trap. Are those guys old members of the DLC ? And if so, have Bill and Hillary Clinton tempted something to wake them up and stop them from making Christie a national star ??!!!
Folks, I’m concerned to tell you the truth. I’m far from convinced that Hillary, with all the Clinton “baggage” can be a strong candidate against Christie. Low-info voters will be tempted to go for “change”.
I really hope Ted Cruz and his gang of purists screw up the nomination process in the republican party. I really do.

U.S. joins suit against background check firm who helped Snowden, Navy Yard shooter get clearances | bloom.bg/17zKCzp— Bloomberg News (@BloombergNews) November 04, 2013
The U.S. joined a whistle-blower lawsuit against the firm whose background checks helped National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and Washington Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis get security clearances.
United States Investigations Services LLC is accused in the complaint in federal court in Montgomery, Alabama, of failing to perform quality control reviews in connection with its background investigations for the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
From January 2010 through January 2011, Falls Church, Virginia-based USIS used proprietary software to automatically release to OPM incomplete background investigations, according to the complaint.
“We will not tolerate shortcuts taken by companies we have entrusted with vetting individuals to be given access to our country’s sensitive and secret information,” Stuart Delery, the head of the Justice Department’s civil division, said in a statement.
The federal government giving the responsibility of security clearances to private corporations, whose main purpose is not the national security, but PROFIT. What could go wrong ??
Heck, they even outsourced soldiering to mercenaries. Rethugs have done and continue to do serious damage to governing.
Inter—esting and indeed damning if true, which it apparently is. Everything about this dude shouts “fraud”…

So in honor of our President’s 5th anniversary of winning an historic election, I was browsing some YouTube videos of that night, and I also ended up looking at some videos from the 2012 election victory as well. However, I happened to also click on another video which featured a young Romney supporter who was disappointed that night. By the end of the video I was laughing and crying….the level of brainwashing is just unbelievable…see if you can go thru this entire video without flinching – I DARE you…
the next ted haggard?
This video made me cry, and not in a good way.
The brainwashing is just sad…really sad.
What is that fool with the red shirt on talking about? He sounds stupid.
The video didn’t make me cry, it made me mad that some people are so dam racists stupid.
Charlie Christ will be the next governor of FL…bye-bye Tricky-Rickie. Go Democrats! #p21 #GOP #Florida— Liz Beth (@TheLizbeth10) November 04, 2013
Charlie Crist is going to have to do some rebuilding with the Black Community in FL. In 2010, with Crist and Meek….the former Rep. That created the fight that allowed Marco Rubio to be elected in 2010. Alex Sink was to have won, but she took a call or a text message, that was exploited by Rick Scott. This gave that man the gov.
Democrats continue to maintain a six-point lead over Republicans on the latest Generic Congressional Ballot for the week ending Sunday, November 3.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 43% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Democrat in their district’s congressional race if the election were held today, while 37% would choose the Republican instead.
Needs to be higher!
That’s Razzie. Other polls show Dems with much bigger leads. Take a look at Jeff’s TL; he’s been tweeting them all day.

What a total fraud and liar. And stealer.
Wow….again? It looks like there is nothing Rand Paul isn’t plagiarizing? Wow…..he is a weasel. A cheater with Capital C.
Dr Maddow went after the VA gov in VA. That cost him VP selection by Romney due to his utravaginal probe law.
She went after Voter suppression since early 2011. She called attention to Rand Paul in 2010…with his comments on VRA. Matthews sunk the election of Conway to the senate by going so hard on him. Conway was accused of attacking Rand Paul’s religion and Paul used to video to win in KY.
She has been pointing out Paul’s Plagiarism. Now Buzzfeed, Politico, etc are on it.
How I wished she had gone after Christie. Had Keith Olberman still been on MSNBC, he would have.
If she went after Christie, other media wouldn’t follow. Corporate media won’t have any problem going after the far-right candidates like RAnd Paul and Ted Cruz. The media and their friends in the GOP establishment will do everything in their power to prevent a civil war within the GOP, and are hoping Christie will unite all republicans behind him.

Yes, Glenn Greenwald, Brazil Spies on Other Countries, Too.
By Bob Cesca
Nevertheless, Brazil’s president Dilma Rousseff not only condemned the U.S. before the United Nations, but she also canceled her state visit to the White House in protest of NSA eavesdropping, thus amplifying the badly lop-sided and misleading reporting of Greenwald and others.
With each of these stories, it becomes increasingly clear that certain reporters, including and especially Glenn Greenwald (who has become a minor hero in Brazil, by the way) are seeking to unilaterally cripple the U.S.’s ability to operate on the world stage — to make sure the U.S. as well as the U.K. are unable to do what most other industrialized nations are doing.
