We are playing mirror, mirror this week with repeats from 8/30 (Michael Steele and Jon Huntsman), 9/6 (Austan Goolsbee and Bill Richardson), and 9/7 and 8/31 (only Stephen had guests, Ed Rendell and James Carville).

Only Bill, Ed, and James aren't among the 14 diaries worth of material that I've already collected for The Stars Hollow Gazette and DocuDharma.  While I'll feature as much as I can I'm afraid I'm going to have to leave a lot on my own sites.  I'll also be generating some new collections out of the Democratic National Convention material which I'll be posting this week so expect updates on that project.

There were 5 interviews of note that I've assembled all the parts of-

* John Huntsman in Mandarin
* Michael Steele
* The Great Latino Hope
* Herman Caine: Singer

I sort of wrote the Ayn Rand piece twice-

You may think it's odd that an old greezer like me (and at 120, I'm much older than Clint Eastwood) gets his news online from a basic cable comedy show.  Well let me tell you Emily and Richard are so old that they got their news from the Post Office Gazette.

In colonial times overland communications was just beginning to get established and even before Ben Franklin an enterprising man named John Campbell had set up a delivery service from Boston to New York.  Local Postmasters, who were frequently Innkeepers too, would scan the letters before passing them on and print up the juicy bits which they would sell as newspapers.

The sudden popularity of sealing wax led to more formal arrangements for obtaining content, but the tradition was well established.  Indeed one of the onerous (and intended) effects of the Stamp Act was to penalize the publication of information and restrict communication as well as raise revenue.  Fortunately the alternative press had not been forgotten and soon 'British' Postmasters were under a serious commercial threat.

Oh and sometimes the boys at the bar would get all liquored up on Sam Adams and bust the place up a bit just for fun.  Our founders were Revolutionaries, don't forget that.

So yeah, I consider it as newsy as anything else on basic cable.

The TV business is uglier than most things. It is normally perceived as some kind of cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs, for no good reason.

Journalism is not a profession or a trade. It is a cheap catch-all for fuckoffs and misfits -- a false doorway to the backside of life, a filthy piss-ridden little hole nailed off by the building inspector, but just deep enough for a wino to curl up from the sidewalk and masturbate like a chimp in a zoo-cage.

Somebody asked recently if they could have a copy of the 'Star Wars' style credits from the RNC.  Here you go, with embed code.

I have always believed that a man can fairly be judged by the standards and taste of his choices in matters of high-level plagiarism.- Stockton
Alarms and excitement this afternoon as Go Daddy comes under hack attack (true) by Anonymous (rumours) and takes down our sites.  I trust we were able to achieve our accustomed levels of obnoxiousness despite this.
