Mary Carey Redux- In which I engage in Journamaliserim

Dont ask me why I even thought to bother, but I decided to see if porn "star" Mary Carey's website had any mention of her meeting the president at the NRCC meeting I spoke about in this post. Sure enough her online "diary" does contain two mentions of it. You can read the whole thing here (warning, this is a porn "star's" webpage, which makes it not work-safe) but here are the two relevant passages. (All grammatical, syntactical, spelling errors and other instances of bad writing are Ms. Carey's and have been reproduced verbatim here)
Mar-13-2006: Hey everyone, Just got back from new zealand, my flight was horrible. I had to sit in coach and my butt hurts, my back hurts, and my knees hurt. Anyway, now I'm back in la, getting ready to go to washington dc for dinner with President Bush. I love dc. Time for bed. Good night everyone.

Mar-14-2006: I'm at the La airport getting ready to go to washington DC. I can't wait. I'm a little dissapointed that the NRCC is n't giving me the award weds or letting me go to the Karl Rove luncheon, but I still get to go to the bush dinner Thursday and am scheduling some tv shows with fox news and MSNBC. I hope its just as much fun this time as in June. Also, my 1st legend movie "mary carey on the rise" is available now. Buy it everyone. Its the best movie I've done yet. Its by Legend Video
So she's upset she couldnt get to be enchanted my Karl Rove's impressive masculinity, and in truth what woman wouldn't be, and she's also promoting her latest porn video, but something else caught my eye. "I'm a little dissapointed that the NRCC is n't giving me the award weds..." piqued my curiosity, and made me ask myself aloud "...award? Was she going to be given an award? What reward would the National Republican Congressional Committee give to Mary Carey?!" So I checked the NRCC webpage for clarification and found info on the dinner here, and found the item in question. Wednesday, 11:30am - 2:00pm, Businessman of the Year and Award Ceremony, hosted my guest of honor, Karl Rove. This is the only event where any kind of award is mentioned.

So, here's what it looks like: Mary Carey is at least under the impression she was going to win Businessman of the Year from the RNCC, meaning she was probably nominated, and as far as we know, may have even won, but was unable to recieve the award for reasons unknown. Now, I cant back any of this up, I cant find a list of the nominees or even the winner for this year, so dont take my word.

Still though, just let that thought sit in your mind... gestating... evolving... The National Republican Congressional Committee nominated/awarded a porn star as Businessman of the Year...

Joe Lieberman should Die in front of his Children

Connecticut senator Joe Lieberman may well be one of the worst human beings in the world.

He is certainly the nation's worst Democrat. He has endorsed and voted in favor of every one of W. Bush's policies and programs, even going as far as to criticise members of his own party who dare point out objective fact that demonstrates, for instance, that the Iraq War is based on false information and faught poorly.

Compounding my distaste for him is his vocal opposition to violence in video games, leading the charge in the past against such threats to our way of life as the best selling PC game Doom. I'd go further into his jackassery vis a vis gaming, but its all slightly old news. Rest assured he'll do something stupid on that front soon enough and I'll be appropriately indignant. Besides, it would distract from his latest crime against common sense and decency.

In Connecticut, apparently if you're raped, and theres a risk you could get pregnant, you had better hope the paramedics dont take you to a Catholic hospital, because it seems they reserve the right to deny you emergency contraception. Okay, first wrap your mind around that, this isn't even an abortion issue, this is about preventing the rapist's sperm from fusing permanently with the victim's egg. Terminating a life doesnt even enter into it, but the Conn. Catholics, never ones to let facts or sense interfere with their actions, are opposed to it nonetheless, meaning about %20 of Conn hospitals are basically saying that a victim should be forced to give birth to the rapist's child, an opinion they no doubt derive from their wonderful Christian love.

Anyway, a bill was proposed recently to counteract this madness. Guess what Lieberman's opinion is on the matter.

From the New Haven Register (reguires registration)
U.S. Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, who often takes a conservative line on social issues, is facing a liberal Democratic primary challenge from wealthy Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont. But that hasn't stopped Lieberman from supporting the approach of the Catholic hospitals when it comes to contraceptives for rape victims.

Lieberman said he believes hospitals that refuse to give contraceptives to rape victims for "principled reasons" shouldn't be forced to do so. "In Connecticut, it shouldn't take more than a short ride to get to another hospital," he said.
I tried to pick a single sentence from that quite to boldface, but its honestly all so damned absurd that I couldnt pick just one. His kowtowing to religious interests put him in favor of letting hospitals deny emergency medical assistence if they just plain dont feel like it? And this guy is a three-term senator? Good lord why is there so much Stupid in the world?!

News story that speaks for itself

Porn star to meet George W.
PRWire, a very reliable source of mainstream and sometimes alternative news is reporting that adult starlet Mary Carey is scheduled to attend the United to Victory dinner with President George W. Bush in Washington D.C on March 15th - 16th.

Carey, who was also a Republican candidate for governor of California, is going to Washington at the invitation of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).

On returning to Washington, Ms. Carey said, “I'm really excited to be going back to Washington D.C. to see the president again. Everyone thinks that politicians are stuffy, but we all had a great time last year.”

Carey made national headlines in June of 2005, when she attended a similar dinner with President George W. Bush, also at the invitation of the National Republican Congressional Committee.
Is it even necessary to make a comment on this?

One of a select few yet still important reasons I should own a PSP

Mega Man Powered Up
Sweetened fanciful Moses this game looks too good to be true. The entire first Mega Man game done in 3D, which is reason enough to buy the thing, but also includes two new levels/bosses, the ability to play as the Mega one, his sister Roll, and Boss Robots like Gutsman and Cutman, a level editor, and other online features. Glory be unto Mega Man in the highest, and on Earth, peace, and good will to all men.
Only worries I have are that the graphics are a little too childish to say the game wont be like kid's-level difficulty. Also while they kept the origional music, they sort of converted all the minor chords into major ones, so it sounds, I dunno, wrong-ish. More of that kid-ish-ness I suppose. Anyways, check the trailer.

One of many reasons I do not own a PSP

Load times.
Some poor schmoe was unfortunate enough to try and play WWE: Smackdown VS Raw 2006 on the PSP, after reading rather favorable reviews online. Unfortunately, the game, it seems, did not want to be played. Forthwith he decided to document his experience so that none other may suffer for THQ's mistake. What follows is a full 6+ minutes of loading screens that follow the path from starting the system to the first second of actual gameplay. And that's skipping through the cruddy movies too. If it werent for the Benny Hill theme playing constantly it'd be unbearable. It's... it's just... just damn, man.
