Monday morning

It was pointed out in an e-mail that I did not do my Friday "Google" post. It was a holiday weekend! I'll pick it up in this entry.

But first, I want to note what we did at Third:

Truest statement of the week
Editorial: The Treaty
A note to our readers
TV: Rosie and Other Bombs
The E-Z Bake critics of Panhandle Media
Video On Demand?
Book discussion roundtable
Simon Assaf's "Iraq deal does not end the war"
Then and Now
Greens and Marcelo

And I want to repost the following because I do not do enough highlights here at my site:

This piece is written by Rebecca of
Sex and Politics and Screeds and Attitude, Cedric of Cedric's Big Mix, Kat of Kat's Korner, Betty of Thomas Friedman is a Great Man, Mike of Mikey Likes It!, Elaine of Like Maria Said Paz, Ruth of Ruth's Report, Marcia of SICKOFITRADLZ, Stan of Oh Boy It Never Ends and Wally of The Daily Jot. Unless otherwise noted, we picked all highlights.

"I Hate The War" and "Iraq snapshot" -- Two most requested highlights, C.I.'s Thursday snapshot (breaking the news that the White House finally released a copy of the treaty) and the Thursday night entry.

"Potatoe Pancakes in the Kitchen" -- Trina on the economy.

"Press deliberately lying" -- Ruth explains how the press attempts to manufacture consent on the treaty.

"Shove it up your ass, Carlos Fierro" -- we feel you, Betty.

"Kat's Korner: Labelle's neither 'back' nor 'now'" and "Kat's Korner: Break Up The Ass Kiss" --Kat's offered up two reviews. They're great, be sure to read them. Marcia's favorite is the first because, "I knew they were ripping off some song but couldn't place it. 'Oasis!' Yes." We also agree that Chrissie Hynde is one sick f**k.

Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "Tina Fey: America's Sour-Heart" -- Isaiah completes his three-parter with this one.

"Judge yells 'tyrant!' and tyrant collapses" -- Mike on the collapse.

"Academics killed during the Iraq War" -- a list, but an important one.

"The Times and that ever changing byline" -- Uh, who was the writer of the piece? Three different bylines? Does The New York Times just toss a coin to determine who gets the byline?

"heroes" -- Rebecca talks her TV passion.

"They were not 'pie fights'" -- No, they weren't and the Democratic Party primary will not be forgotten -- no matter how many whores try to make us forget.

"Scapegoating the Clintons to let Barack off da hook" and "Barack and his defenders" -- Marcia called it out first last week but we were all in agreement and Elaine took it to another level. She's right, we're not interested in highlighting your bad writing.

"Barack sings 'Hero'" and "THIS JUST IN! BARACK CROSS DRESSES AS MARIAH!" -- Cedric and Wally chart Barack practicing his scales (he's stuck on me-me-me).
"Now I don't believe I wanna see the morning" -- Betty writing about Thanksgiving.

"robert parry: complete moron" -- Robert Parry wanted change! Robert Parry loathes Robert Gates! Robert Parry supported Barack! Barack plans to keep Robert Gates as Secretary of Defense! As Nelson would say, ha-ha!

"Rejoice over Florida news (before they take it away!)," "The day Anita Bryant cried" and "The good and the bad" -- Marcia, Ruth and Stan cover the good news out of Florida.

"Isaiah, We Are Not Your Soldiers, Third" -- Mike covers Third and other things.

"Christmas movies" and "8, er 9, things I'm thankful for" -- Stan writes about Christmas films and Thanksgiving.

"Norman tells all!" & "THIS JUST IN! NORMAN SEES PEE-PEES EVERYWHERE!" and"Norman discovers his girlish side" & "THIS JUST IN! NORMY LOVES BARACK!" -- Cedric and Wally explore Norman's strangely sexual fetishizing of Norman Solomon.

So there's that. Now The Google!

Starting with The Common Ills as a reference:

Trina asks why is her post at the top? She was trying to link to Stan's movies post and trying to do it via some device in Blogger/Blogspot as opposed to doing it in a post. It created a post that's nothing but a link.

Who knows why but it's great that Stan's Googling so well.

And grabbing the link for Stan's site, I see C.I.'s already posted this morning and I thought I was getting the jump on everyone! Read "The 'Gospel' of the Interior Ministry." And be sure and check out Stan's "Christmas movies." If I have time, I think I'll blog on that topic tonight.

I'm still catching up from the weekend and would've e-mailed myself about the Google.
