I'll Cut You, Fool! 

A new phrase has entered the lexicon.

"Flier pimps."

The KC Pitch explains: "As anyone who attended the Al Franken appearance last week learned several times over from enthusiastic flier pimps, Vermont Governor Howard Dean beats the campaign drum live at the Uptown Theater (3700 Broadway) tonight..."

Hey, bring your platform shoes and join us on the 15th. Register here.

Headline of the Day: 


Well, that won't be happening when Howard Dean visits on the 15th, although some progressives think big hair went out of style in the 80s. To register for the 15th (and please, please do), click here.

Dean Visit 

That's right. He's coming. October 15th. And there will be a band called "Allied Saints", which seems like a bit redundant. I mean, aren't "Saints" all allied against Satan?

Anyhoo, please register online. How does one do that? Click here.

Quote of the day:

"‘Look, if you want me to be some kind of sex thing, that’s not me."

-Britney Spears (because the audience wants her views about post-modernism)

Also, here's a bonus quote from Britney: Spears said if she didn’t have a career in music, she “probably would have gone to college and become a schoolteacher. “That was my dream, because I love kids,” she said. “Either that, or an entertainment lawyer.”

So she wanted to be a schoolteacher or an entertainment lawyer? Either one? Of course, she would have deal with more children as an entertainment lawyer.

PS: I put in the Britany quote just to ensure that I would get 50 more hits on the site. Trust me. There will be tons of referrals from Google.

Re: Low Blogging 

Since Chris is busy with other pursuits, I thought I'd rise from the dead.

I'm back at school in NH now and had the chance to go see Dean at Keene State today (so spoiled, I know). The governor gave his usual half-hour spiel, focusing today on jobs and the Bush tax cuts. Dean's looking much more relaxed on the stump of late, perhaps due to his newfound frontrunner status. There was a crowd of 700 or so and 1 DJ.

I did acquire a $159 speeding ticket in the great state of Vermont, but it was a good trip nonetheless. As there's a lot going on out here, I hope to post occasionally on both Dean and the competition.

Low Blogging 

Sorry for the dearth of posts. Hey, you get what you pay for. I will be posting later in the week.

Health Care Stories 

On Dean for America’s official blog, Howard Vicini offers a stirring account of his struggle to try to receive disability coverage from the Social Security Administration after he suffered a horrible workplace injury (see this). If you have had a similar experience where you were denied disability benefits or healthcare coverage, please share that story in the “Comments” section below. If you are willing to discuss your story publicly, please e-mail your account to ThurstonCromwell@hotmail.com.
