Mrs. Ada Nettles, of Darlington , South Carolina voted today. ( and knows how to dress to do so! ) Please watch this news story.


I am Charlie Brown and the football when it comes to the Mendon Trick-or-Treaters. I dutifully made my little candy/treat bundles, lit all the candles, Neil hooked up the scary fog machine... we were all set. Zippo, Nada, Null Set..not the first one. Koda did charge the door at one point, but that was just to distract Neil from the plate of chicken wings he had.
BUT, Smart Kyle.. I did buy candy that I don't like. NEXT year, I'll have MORE pumpkins, and more lights and better candy. Yes, Next year they will come.. I just know it

Mendon on Hallowe'en


A Democrat in Georgia, How ever did they get in?
Is Georgia turning slightly less bright red? perhaps a nice shade of pink?
As of this morning, per the AJC:
"The latest polls show the Obama-McCain race to be neck-and-neck —- one poll showed McCain ahead by 1 point, another had him up by 5 but yet another had him down by 3."
Come on GOP, if you can not be sweeping GEORGIA against a liberal African American canidate, give it up.....


The weekend before.
I am a mess, just worked myself into a slight frenzy. Maybe I am just more tuned in this election cycle, but that is pretty hard to believe, I've always been over the top obsessed with politics. ( the only kid in Winder-Barrow Elementary School staying up late to watch the Watergate Hearings - what WILL Mo Dean wear tonight??).
This year , more than any that I can recall is clearly about going forward or looking backward. Could be generational, there have never been this much of an age gap between the candidates, but the choice is just so clear to me.
It is looking good for MY side, Senator McCain is having to spend money in Arizona, his home state, what is up with that? New voter registration is off the charts in Pennsylvania and Ohio, but that falls back on the eternal question as to whether the damn kids ( CRAIG!) will make it to the polls on Tuesday. - [ what is up with this? I walked away from the kegger for ALL THREE of the Presidential Elections that went on while I was an undergrad....] The Clinton's and Gore's are all over Florida. The BIG MO is very much behind The Obama Campaign.
Are we as a country going to go towards the hope of change that Senator Obama represents or the same old, same old Republican trickle down ways of McCain/Bush. This can be a CHANGE Election, the cycle that has existed , pretty much since Carter-Reagan can end. We can move beyond the politics of blame and move into an era of GROWN UP politicians , who understand that there is real work to be done.
We are one country, and I think my side remembers that more than the flag waving-Bible thumping side does. You may hate me because I am a liberal Democrat, you may dislike me for being one of those that bleeds red and black ( if you bleed blue and orange!) , for being one of those obnoxious types that puts College Football before all else on sunny fall afternoons. You can hate me for being married to a man, for not going to the same church as you, for not raking my leaves up on time, for not ALWAYS picking up my doggie mess. Gosh, there are just LOTS of reasons that you can dislike me, but you have to respect my rights. We are all Americans. One nation and all of that. This to me is what Senator Barack Obama is trying so hard to get across. We don't have to keep fighting the wars that were started in the 1960's . It is not AMERICA: love it or leave it. It is AMERICA: roll up your sleeves and get to work.
Four days.....

( from my ex-exboyfriendandrewsullivan)

World's Largest Cocktail Party, ever....

It is nice to have the distraction of the looming grudge match in Jacksonville!
All the papers are saying it is the biggest Georgia-Florida game if not ever, then in a very very long time. One of these teams will go on to face, Alabama in the SEC playoff and then maybe to the National Championship game. Urban, Tebow and the boys are still all pissy cause we did our little dance last year. Out for blood and all.
Who is the best quarterback, their messiah like young Heisman winner or our spunky Texan?
Their numbers are quite comparable:

Stafford — 141 of 229 (61.6 percent) for 1,946 yards (243.2 pg) with 12 TDs and 5 INTs. 60 yards rushing.

Tebow — 104 of 164 (63.4) for 1,415 (202.1) with 12 TDs and 2 INTs. 227 yards rushing.

They’re even similar physically. Tebow is 6-3, 240; Stafford 6-3, 237.
We KNOW we have the better running game!
Just something else to add to the pressure of this week. GO DAWGS.....

Terminate Hate

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger joins his lovely wife Maria in coming out strong against Prop Eight in California. It is still a horse race out there. The wack job right and their new BFF the Mormon Church have thrown the kitchen sink at the gays. I am all the hopeful. We shall see....



TAMPA, Fla. — The mayor of Margaritaville is jumping into this year's political fray.
Jimmy Buffett plans a free concert Sunday in Tampa to urge people to vote for Democrat Barack Obama for president. The "Last Chance for Change" rally and concert is happening two days before the election at the outdoor Ford Amphitheatre.

I love the smell of irony in the morning.....

There is this Christianist woman who is part of the 700 Club universe named Cindy Jacobs. I am not going to link, because, I do not want to aid and abet the enemy. But , a little background. She is one of these Gospel of Prosperity types. Jesus wants you to be rich, rich, rich! (and he wants you to give LOTS of that money to me so I can be richer , richer,richer!). All that stuff in the bible about the poor and the meek should be skipped over, like the selling of your daughter and not eating shrimp! Rich I tell you!
  Cindy is calling for a Day of Prayer for the World’s Economies on Wednesday, October 29, 2008. They are calling for prayer for the stock markets, banks, and financial institutions of the world on the date the stock market crashed in 1929. They are meeting at the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank, and its 12 principal branches around the US that day.
“We are going to intercede at the site of the statue of the bull on Wall Street to ask God to begin a shift from the bull and bear markets to what we feel will be the 'Lion’s Market,' or God’s control over the economic systems,” she said. “While we do not have the full revelation of all this will entail, we do know that without intercession, economies will crumble.” Cindy is encouraging prayer groups to intercede for banks and financial institutions in your area. Cindy says each of us has to be accountable to the Lord. "
THEY ARE GOING TO GATHER AROUND A GIANT GOLDEN COW AND PRAY! It is almost more than this pure cynic's heart can take


See, we did survive Seven and Six... tick, tick , tick.
I LOVED the Barack Obama Show last night, but I would have. Even better was the Obama -President Clinton rally from Kissamee Florida at MIDNIGHT. Those were some fired up Central Florida Democrats!
The nay-sayers are all over Senator Obama for spending the money on a full half hour tv buy. Cry me a river on that one, John Kerry sat back on what he thought was a lead and DID NOT spend all the money he had in 2004 . The Obama people are not going to go down that road again. This is a fight to the finish. The once might GOP is just no used to the idea of coming in second in the money race. Some talking head said: " I as SURE McCain would have loved to have had that 8:30 slot. 
A couple of stories on the OBAMAMAINA periphery:
Obama Shakes up Georgia Senate Race, Go Jim Martin, now THIS would warm my heart.
Ted Stevens Receives a Hero's Welcome in Alaska, just stop. This is a win win for the Democrats EITHER WAY. He wins , and the smell of a convicted felon " OUR guys would never ever stay...." comes to Washington with their minority, or he loses and that is one more to get to the magic 60.

one of these things is not like the other.......

I told Hannah and Lily that they could pick any Jack-o-Lantern at all, and I would carve it for them. They could draw a picture, pick something out of a book they had, or find one on the internets. Hannah drew her pic and Lily went on line.
Lily is the fist one, Hannah is the second.
Not judging, just posting...

Pumpkin Carving Party

long lines?

B.Day Reports on the bubble that she COULD NOT vote in COBBCO today, due to long lines? What is up with this? Why are there not simply MORE polling places? I commented on her blog that it seems like GOP backed county and state government voter suppression to me. It should NEVER be this hard to vote. ( story from the AJC)


This is like being a little kid and so so so wanting Christmas to hurry up!
I am watching a huge Obama Rally in Raleigh , North Carolina. "North Carolina" - with six days to go? A Democrat? Tick, tick, tick...
This add that came out from Senator Obama's campaign:

Sort of sums it all up

There is a new sheriff in town...

The past two election cycles Zippy the wonder President could do what ever he wanted to do in the Sunshine State, cause his very own brother was the Governor of the state! It's good to have friends in high places, and that Bush Brotherly Love paid off well for them! Not so much for the rest of us, but HAPPY DAYS in Kennebunkport !
Fast forward, 2008 and the now Governor Charlie- I- never -heard-of-the -GREEN IGUANA-Crist, is PISSED. He wanted to be the Vice President. He did ALL sorts of wild things to become the Vice President , and Camp McCain went with Governor Palin'. Hell hath no furry like a .....angry Governor!
 SO, Democrat in training Mr. Crist is KEEPING THE EARLY VOTING POLLS OPEN LATE! To the dismay of the local GOP. 
It's never to late to come out as a good guy Governor!  Keep up the good work!

Cold, Blustery Day

See all that white? That is a foot plus of snow, more or less, coming tonight and tomorrow. We are well to the west, not in one of the major snow belts. We are going to get a dusting to an inch or so. Dangerous this time of year, because most of the leaves are still on the huge old trees in our yard. 


BARACK-A-LANTERNS! ( this one is Neil's)


Just your average, calm, not-a-whole-lot-going-on week.......
It is a little bit rare, to sit, knowing that in one week, things will be different. Even if it is just the end of the ENDLESS campaign season, things will be different. Change is a good thing! ( unless it's not!) 
One week until we vote. One week to decide , really, the path of our country. The talking heads on tv always call elections " THE MOST IMPORTANT EVER " . Dole/Clinton!: MOST IMPORTANT EVER, on and on. But, this one is. This one is a clear, clear fork in the road. Are we going to stay on the path that George Bush II has us on.. or a break from it? That is the question. Simple, no Palin wardrobe, no Marxist Obama , one easy question.
One week until California votes on Proposition Eight. Again, one simple question. Are gay and lesbian Americans equal to all other Americans, or not?  That is it. The Mormon Church and the wack job Theocratic religious right are putting all their eggs in this basket. Their " line in the sand" . It's not. It will make life in American much easier for gays and lesbians, but its not the end all. How would Georgia and Alabama and Mississippi voted on Brown V Board in 1954?, and could that vote have stopped the advancement of human rights? Time is on the side of people who believe that " all men are created equal" not just some pigs.....
AND, last and well, very much least: GEORGIA - FLORIDA in Jacksonville. Not as important as the other two.. but, well, who ever wins it WILL win the SEC East and , in the long run, gosh, no, no where near as important , not in the same ball park, etc.. BUT, I want to win! It will just be a wonderful distraction to have Sunday and Monday, and Tuesday up until Keith tells me that all is right with the world. 
I am, as always: Hopeful.

Happy Halloween!

It is a heavy video day ..... 



the BIG TENT Bulldog Nation

my people....

I feel pretty, oh , so pretty.....

Phillies go up , three games to one, on the Rays in the World Series that I am not even watching. But , Could NOT pass up this pic. "There's no skipping in baseball......"

mad about it.

 MAD MEN, the end ( for now...) 
I really don't like getting hooked on TV shows, with the tivo it is all easier, but still I always forget etc. I am so hooked on this show, ( as I have said over and over, if you don't watch it , you don't care. BUT, if you can find AMC on demand on your tv, watch a couple of them. ) AND tonight, the season was over! NO!
The Russians are fixin' to blow up the world, people are saying and doing things KNOWING they might die tomorrow , Leave it to Beaver is on and it JUST ENDS! How can we go till next Summer with out knowing ANYTHING? Thank goodness it was picked up for another season! The writers of this show are just far , far from right. 
Don Draper is Michael Steadman, viewed from the Twilight Zone by way of Twin Peaks. One of the most real and yet MESSED up characters ever to be on  tv. AND Betty!  What was that all about? and every one's favorite Peggy ?? Man, the fear of that " burning in Hell for all eternity " thing, can make you do some strange stuff.... 
Find it, watch it.

Nine and Counting.....

The Euphoria of last night,( 52 - 38 ) wearing off slowly, we can , for a bit, go back to reality. NINE DAYS from now, it can all , HOPEFULLY come to and end. (The black horror of 2000 weighting on my mind.) 
Nine days out and Governor Palin will not have done a Sunday Morning news show , the bread and butter of any serious candidate. Senator McCain was on MTP this morning. I watched Fox News Sunday, because, I like to get the blood pumping! Even those parrot- ting lackeys were hedging their bets. 
After Faux News Sunday comes my old buddy George and his Sunday Morning show which really has become much better over time. Coming out for McCain was King Lemming, Senator Lindsey - I am sooooo NOT gay - Graham of South Carolina. ( date much,Senator?) Every word out of his mouth sounded so tired, so backward thinking, so Bush-esqe. Think what you want of Governor Palin, as wrong and uninformed as she may be, she is NOT old and tired thinking. No, I take that back, she does not sound Bush-like. Her rhetoric is much much OLDER.. she is flat out John Birch, Larry McDonald, Cummunist fearing , hate monger,but not a Bushy , at all. 
Can the Democrats still blow this ? I am going to say yes, up until about Wednesday, after that, people will stop paying attention. Halloween , the World Series that no one is watching. Dancing with the Stars, what ever will take over, until Tuesday. The thing about Tuesday is LOTS and LOTS of folks ( and A WHOLE LOT of African American folks) have already voted.
There is this documentary " THE WAR ROOM" all about the 92 election, it is where the famous "ITS THE ECONOMY , STUPID" line comes from. In it, we see , again, my good buddy George, talking the newly elected President Clinton off the ledge, over  if he has won Nevada.." Does not matter , Sir, its OVER.. you can stop, we WON" Think about it, these people have been in full VOTE FOR ME mode for two years, and then in one day, it stops. Cold Turkey, for them , and us. SO, lets not obsesses over this map TOO much... ( but Nevada, Virgina and North Carolina would be so so so nice to have in the family of blue)
A few more days. Cue Margo Channing: " fasten your seat belts........."

To face book, or not to Face book ? , that is the question.
Whether 'tis nobler to suffer the slings and arrows of the outrageous under 40 types, or take arms against a sea of non communication. And by opposing said Facebook, end it?
I have been signed up to the Face book, a little bit against my will. All I know of the facebook is that it's where JJBSP meets all her mens, and Craig yells at me daily for not having an account there.
Let's just all take a deep breath and acknowledge the fact that this question will be typed in the coming weeks : " are you the same Kyle Crawford that I went to high school or college or college or college or college or college with?"
I will be setting up a pay pal account so that my many ( two ) fans can contribute to my future therapy.

returning the love...

We are an apple house, PC  is to Neil what the University of Florida is to me. SO, it is nice when those you love, show you some love back, in a big way. 
I get these APPLE UPDATES in my mail, all the time, I wish I could turn them off, but I can not figure out how. I am glad I did not miss this one:

Apple is publicly opposing Proposition 8 and making a donation of $100,000 to the No on 8 campaign. Apple was among the first California companies to offer equal rights and benefits to our employees’ same-sex partners, and we strongly believe that a person’s fundamental rights — including the right to marry — should not be affected by their sexual orientation. Apple views this as a civil rights issue, rather than just a political issue, and is therefore speaking out publicly against Proposition 8.


I love my Cajun brothers and sisters.
 We could not have been treated better by them when we visited New Orleans earlier this year. A nicer group of people could not be found on the face of the earth. That said , those bead wearing beer, gumbo eating , bud light soaked kitty cats  are going down this weekend. Knowshown is going to KNOW the end zone of Death Valley West, over and over and over.
Good ole Brett has already started the smack over in his part of the web. I'll get him to send us some pictures from the game, if he can take them through his tears.

well, duh!

Turns out it is HARD to get lipstick on a pit bull:
"If Palin's $150,000 shopping spree had Republicans disgusted, then the report that her makeup stylist cost $22,800 for the first two weeks of October should have them livid. The stylist, Amy Strozzi, was apparently paid more than any other McCain staffer during that period."
I 110% do not care how the GOP spends the blood money it gets from the poor misguided souls who chose of their own free will to give them money. Nor should anyone else. It is their money. BUT, here is the deal. These same GOP'ers had 17 and 1/2 caniptions when slut boy John Edwards spent his own 400$ to get a hair cut ( he DOES have pretty hair!) They do NOT get to have it both ways.
Think what you will of Governor Palin, with the sound on the tvbox turned down, she LOOKS fantastic, her hair is too big sometimes but the cloths are a clear over the center field fence home run. 
All that said , it is a perfect snapshot of the McCain/Palin campaign that the highest paid person they have is the make up artist. Making 72 and pasty look healthy and toning down those Alaskan winters is hard work.
There is also the idea floating around the internets tubes that Governor Palin is ever so slightly sniffing around as to where to land post Obama Electoral landslide. Where - 0 - where to put Miss Sarah on tv? Fox is the obvious choice, but a little limiting. I thought she looked and sounded fantastic on SNL , so its an obvious question.  Where will we see the Sarah Palin Show next.....??

The Reality of Hope....

This is jaw dropping, and I will be shocked ( in a very happy sort of way..) if it holds but:

InsiderAdvantage poll: Obama now has razor-thin lead in Georgia
Friday, October 24, 2008, 09:56 AM
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
InsiderAdvantage has a new poll up this morning, showing the U.S. Senate and presidential races in Georgia to be toss-ups.
In fact, the local polling firm says Democrat Barack Obama now has a slight edge over Republican John McCain, though within the margin of error. Both polls, conducted last night, are of 615 likely voters, with a margin of error of 3.8 percentage points.
In the presidential: Obama, 48%; McCain, 47%; other, 2%; and undecided, 2%.
I mean, just this headline in the Atlanta paper is ... well, shocking. A liberal , black,  could be a yankee Presidential Candidate ahead with 11 days to go. I do not think it is some sort of major ground swell in Georgia, I think its more of just the perfect storm against John McCain and the GOP. 
If this holds, I may have to come to Atlanta. Election night of 1992 was one of the most fun nights ever. There was literally dancing in the streets of Midtown Atlanta. So, get your conga shoes ready, Susan!.........

J.H.H. and his Prostate

It has been a while since we updated the kyle+blog readers to James Harvey's battle with all sorts of nasty things. GOOD NEWS! ( thanks to the blog for keeping me abreast)

I said, it SUCKS to be.....

An Auburn Tiger! 
Is there some cosmic law that states that when one college football team in the Great State of Alabama is doing well, the other one has to SUCK. Auburn just lost to West Virginia 34-17 on National tv. Lots of toilet paper saved at Toomers Corner this year. 
Now, watch them lose all the rest of their games and beat the crap out of UGA

We ♡ Little Ronnie

See more Ron Howard videos at Funny or Die


With the election winding down , and it really looking like we will be very happy come that cold Wednesday in November morning. I can turn my thoughts to obsessing over prop 8 in California. It really is coming down to Ellen verses the Mormon's. We just have to hope for the best on it, really all we can do from afar. ( other than give money....
  BUT: We are, as I said, BREAKING OUT THE BIG GUNN's!  Take that you sacred underwear wearing lemmings!

see, the G.O.P. NEEDS the gays....

Ok, so Senator McCain calls Governor Palin out of the blue and says " hey, I've got a wacky idea....." BUT, it turns out that Governor Palin only has parkas and muck lucks in her closet. What to do?
A 150 thousand dollar (150, ooo $! ) shopping spree at Neiman's and Saks. NOW, I am far, far away  from judging anyone for shopping. But once you go there, once you leave the Jaclyn Smith separates and k-mart and plunge head first into the non sales bin at Neiman's, you don't get to be " one of the folks" anymore. I am sure it did not mean as much to the McCain people, for Mrs Senator McCain, dropping 150 g at the mall is what you do before meeting your posse for lunch. I do wonder how Todd-n-Sarah will pay the taxes on 150, 000 worth of Craig Muller suits. and Christian Louboutin boots.
BUT, here is where they needed the gays! Don't be sending the church lady crowd ( or Cindiiii's pilled up lady pals) out to do your accessory shopping. LOOK at what they have put the REPUBLICAN Vice Presidential Candidate in: A VOTE DEMOCRATIC SCARF! little red, white and blue donkeys dancing all around the Governors neck. It is just wrong to let a straight man do a gay mans job, this is the sort of thing that happens ( that and some of Gwyneth Paltrow's red carpet looks)

thirteen days....


Pennsylvania voted for Clinton, Clinton, Gore, Kerry.AND the polls look like this today. Do the McCain people know something no one else does? or is this just some strange madness?
One thing is, there are still LOTS of ways for Senator Obama to lose this election, most of which go through this state, but not all of them. Like I said to some folks last night, "It's OK to buy the champagne, and get it cold.. just don't think of popping it till around 10pm next next Tuesday"

First cold blustery day of the season.

American Taliban Update: Kacy's Revenge

I was wrong, she is all the cute. AND - you just know that it makes the Nutjob religious zealots even craizer than their norm for her to be on Ellen.
Romans 1:26, “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature.”.... can be used to stop you from playing football or keep Portia and Ellen from getting married.

David Sedaris.... as always

"Some insist that there’s very little difference between candidate A and candidate B. Others claim that they’re with A on defense and health care but are leaning toward B when it comes to the economy.
"I look at these people and can’t quite believe that they exist. Are they professional actors? I wonder. Or are they simply laymen who want a lot of attention?
"To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. “Can I interest you in the chicken?” she asks. “Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it?”
"To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked." - David Sedaris, writing about undecided voters in New Yorker.
