Birther Infomercial To Air In Huntsville ::

I've been seeing some information on this for the past day or so, but without any details until those supplied by Justin Elliott at Talking Points Memo. Here are some highlights (?) of the informercial:

Here are the cities where it's running:


Chattanoga, TN

Memphis, TN

Shreveport, LA

Springfield, MO

Abilene, TX

Lubbock, TX

Macon, GA

Savannah, GA

Huntsville, AL

Jacksonville, FL

Tallahasseee, FL

I caught a glace at a schedule a few minutes ago, but I can't seem to find it right now. I believe that this ran locally sometime in the early morning hours this morning, Friday. Anyone happen to catch it?

A Snippet From The New Clinton Memoir ::

Hitting home:

* In 1997, when Senate Republicans were opposing Clinton's pick for CIA chief, Anthony Lake, Clinton told Branch he considered Senator Richard Shelby, an Alabama Republican (who had once been a Democrat) and a leading Lake detractor, to be a dogged and spiteful man. Clinton added that Shelby was supported by two GOP "know-nothings" on his Senate committee, Jon Kyl of Arizona and Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma.

Inane "Best Of" Awards ::

Newspapers seem to love these things for some reason, but I've got to agree with this weeks selection of Angel's Island coffee shop as the best around. I don't buy coffee out much this time of year, but I've always found Angel's coffee, service, and ambiance to be first class. I will occasionally stop into a Starbucks, but I often find the coffee stale and the service spotty, at best.

Congratulations to Angel and wishing her the best. I'll have to stop in soon for a large cup of decaf!

The vote is now open for best landscape services in huntsville! Ho Hum!

Rep. Joe Wilson (Idiot-SC)

Although I am a resident of Alabama and I have not lived in South Carolina for many years I still own a bit of property there and I have no compunction about expressing my feelings to those who purport to represent the interests of S.C. in Congress. I have e-mailed Wilson in the past with concerns and, to his credit, he responded to my concerns however unsatisfactorily, but his actions last evening were beyond the pale and I immediately sent an e-mail to my representative, Parker Griffith, urging him to both sponsor and support a motion of censure for Joe Wilson's blatant disrespect for the office of the presidency. I don't expect much from the DINO!

Saturday Kitteh Blogging ::

Been gone for a while due to a nasty cold, but thankfully no aches, pains or fever so I guess I didn't have the pig bug.

At the KaffeKlatsch tomorrow evening. This should be a raucous show. I may try to get in early.

A Bumper Crop Of Peppers ::

Each year I plant peppers, primarily Habañeros, with the occasional Jalapeño. This year I planted a few more Jalapeño plants than Habañero, but I'm getting more of both varieties than ever. I did a bunch of jars of Habañero pepper jelly last weekend and I have enough peppers left to do quite a few more. I've been giving away Jalapeños as fast as I can pick them. I will make some more jelly this weekend since I have several people asking for some.
