League Out Loud (LOL) Saturday: by Pen-Elayne

One of the unspoken "obligations" of being a member of the League of Liberals is the expectation or hope that we'll write about what we like in each other's blogs from time to time. The situation with my work computer and my job in general has precluded me from doing this during the week, but I'm going to try to start a LoL Saturday and see if I can't give you a bit of a round-up each week. So, alphabetically by surname:
  • Barry Bozeman at Rush Limbaughtomy isn't happy that Katherine Harris is considering a Senate run, but I wish he hadn't referred to her as "butt ugly." After all, there's no need to focus on her looks (something done overwhelmingly with women in the public eye over the years) when calling her a "Bush paramour" (i.e., mentioning her personal-is-political connections) does the trick much better.
  • Len Cleavelin at Musings of a Philosophical Scrivener takes a look at the "SUV loophole" in this year's tax incentive for new equipment orders.
  • Natalie Davis at All Facts & Opinions examines the Coalition of the Killing.
  • Jim Elve at Officially Unofficial tests himself using the Political Compass.
  • Jo Fish at Democratic Veteran makes note of a correction to last year's propaganda about how well Austin High School did last year.
  • Barbara O'Brien at The Mahablog does a great job parsing Bush's NED speech from Thursday. I actually don't think the speech is "related to 'Bring It On'" as much as to the Cabal's overreaching purpose since before Bush took office. My favorite line: "Never mind that the Iraq War resembles the Berlin Airlift about as much as Bill O'Reilly resembles Brad Pitt."
  • N. Todd Pritsky at Dohiyi Mir does some Friday Cat Blogging (™ Kevin Drum) too!
  • Maru Soze at WTF Is It Now?? is disgusted (so am I) that Bill Frist yesterday froze the Senate probe of prewar Iraq data because he was pissed about a leaked memo that outlined possible Democratic plans to extend the investigation to include the White House and executive branch. You know, the people who started the war.
  • Patrick Taylor at The Poison Kitchen offers some good tips on increasing traffic from Google.
  • Joe Vecchio at Cup O' Joe wonders about the vagaries of blogger begging.

    And among the first-name-onlys and pseudonymous:
  • Annthrax Coultergeist at Treason Online goes to the movies.
  • Dawn at Clareified extols the virtues of blogs as open public spaces. Although I gotta disagree with her friend about movie theaters, at which I generally prefer audiences to be quiet.
  • Gunther at The Gunther Concept suggests taking action on the anti-abortion movement's harrassment stalling construction of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Austin.
  • Indigo Ocean examines Maui in mythology. I want to know more about what Hina did when he cut off her sacred tresses; sounds like that might make for a much better story.
  • Jeff at Speedkill tries to cheer himself up with good news.
  • Jesse at The Gotham City 13 proposes a new docudrama about FDR.
  • Major Barbara at Arms And The Man takes a look at the corruption problems inherent in the US' "emerging strategic partnership with Vladimir Putin's Russia." Corruption in Russia? I'm shocked-do-you-hear-me-SHOCKED...
  • Manis2Society warns of the continuing war on gays as a political issue in '04 at the Cosmic Iguana, and mentions more White House buck-passing towards the CIA in The Spy Game.
  • Norbizness at Happy Furry Puppy Story Time discovers a Make your own Church Sign Generator.
  • Northstar at the People's Republic of Seabrook muses that perhaps the Iranian Foreign Minister has a point when he observes that the US doesn't exactly have a lot of moral high ground at present.
  • Pompey at The Felonious Elephant reports on CT governor John Rowland's ties to Enron. Wonder if that fuel-cell project was going to be built anywhere near the casinos?
  • Rick at Rick's Cafe Americain seriously poses the question to conservative readers, "What's so great about Dubya, anyway?"
  • Scout at And Then... finds amusement in the latest antics of Young Republicans clubs.
  • Thorswitch at Different Strings puts on his trenchcoat and examines the Matrix, Bush-style.
  • Veralynne at A-Changin' Times checks out the good folks at the Bioweapons and Biodefense Freedom of Information Fund.
  • Estimated Prophet salutes the real Jessica Lynch.
  • As you may expect, Hell for Halliburton is all over the story of Canadian entrepreneur David Hudak and his warheads being used to train UAE soldiers.
  • The 18½ Minute Gap recommends what it terms "a fine, fine article by Michael R. Gordon" about the US sending some of the Army's Old Guard troops (the ones who stand vigil at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery) to Iraq. The Gap also notes that everything we know about lightning may be wrong.
  • T Rex's Guide to Life predicts that Bush is goin' down, goin' down...

    The League is always looking for new members, which may make doing these overviews even more cumbersome but the more the merrier! Check out the site for more info.
