You may have noticed that this blog is undergoing a little bit of plastic surgery. Not to worry, just a little liposuction around the thighs. I’ve received permission from John W Smart to start using his old website’s name as my own, which he explains here:
Liberal Rapture lives on in a few forms. I’ve purchased Liberalrapture.net and am stewing on what direction – if any – I’d want to take the site once built. I’m here for good as a blogger.
-Little Isis over at the Confluence asked if she could change the name of her blog to Liberal Rapture. I don’t own it so I can’t “give” it away. I did, however, give my blessing – for what that’s worth. Give her some love here…I am glad the name has a place on the internets….And Little Isis will do the name “liberal rapture” proud.
Thanks, John! It was just that I’d really outgrown this blog’s old name, Age of Aquirius. Frankly, that name is pseudo new- agey and I outgrew my Sylvia Brown phase a long time ago. Also, my accomplice bohemian wallflower should have a post up later this evening, unless she wants a good smack when I see her at school on Monday. There should be some other changes around here too, but that’s all forthcoming. Either way, you’re in for a treat.
Now here’s today’s most interesting and superficial news:
Significant healthcare reform is all but dead for this session, and the chances of substantively addressing the regulatory breakdown that allowed Wall Street’s irresponsible speculation to precipitate the worst global financial crisis since the Depression seem to recede with each passing day. So too the prospects for passage of further stimulus measures to remedy the crisis of unemployment and underemployment that continues to ravage the lives of families in states from Michigan to California.
Tiger Woods and his children have finally reunited after the golfer’s torrid sex scandal became public, according to RadarOnline. Woods’ son Charlie is almost one year old, while his daughter Sam is two.
The article reports that “several sources have said he does not acknowledge being a sex addict but he does know that he has a behavioral problem and he agreed to treatment because he wants his life back.”
While Woods may not think he’s a sex addict, he clearly has a fondness for a range of women, if previous reports are true. Ladies linked to Tiger include two separate porn stars (one of whom may have worked as an escort – NSFW), a Playboy model, a possible former stripper, and many, many, many more women.
The latest news follows reports that Woods finished sex addiction rehab. Still, there is good reason to doubt the rehab reports even beyond the fact that photos allegedly placing Woods at the clinic turned out to likely be faulty.
I think the only entity with a sex addiction here is the media. Tiger Woods is a multimillion dollar athlete. He likes booty just like everyone else, and a person is only as faithful as their options. Yup, Tiger is a slut. That doesn’t make him a sex addict.
I got a letter — I got a note today from one of my staff — they forwarded it to me — from a woman in St. Louis who had been part of our campaign, very active, who had passed away from breast cancer. She didn’t have insurance. She couldn’t afford it, so she had put off having the kind of exams that she needed. And she had fought a tough battle for four years. All through the campaign she was fighting it, but finally she succumbed to it. And she insisted she’s going to be buried in an Obama t-shirt.
Could he be any weirder?
The rumor mill has been running overtime in recent weeks about Paterson and the possibility that a major newspaper is about to drop a bombshell story about his personal life that will be far worse than his acknowledged extramarital affair with a former state employee.
I’m more interested in the rumor that Patterson and his wife are swingers. I love New York. Why can’t Ted Strickland and his wife be swingers? I might be more inclined to vote for him come reelection time.
This one’s for you, ladies.
