Open thread 

"What's a dazzling urbanite like you doing in a rustic setting like this?"

Edwards endorses Obama:
, May 14, 2008 (via WaPo).


Open Speculation Thread 

I predict that Hillary will get 40% of the Skinhead vote in Oregon on May, 20.

What kind of persona will Hillary adopt for her campaign visit to Oregon?

Will she become:

[1] - A wiley beaver trapper.

[2] - A Tigercat feller buncher operator.

[3] - A psilocybin rancher.

[4] - The Portland Rose Festival Queen.

[5] - The crazy lady in the Nike sneakers and the canary yellow pantsuit that stole the lunch money from the kid in Klamath Falls.

[6] - A plucky saloon drunk, tossing back Full Sail Amber Ale, and telling salty girlhood tales of fightin' - and shootin' - and wrasslin' Spring chinook from the Rogue River with her bare hands - with Ken Kesey - while naked - and other stuff.

[?] - Some other plausible options... (contribute your own in comments below)

Unitas Fratricidium 

The HUSSIANS are coming!
The HUSSIANS are coming!

This doesn't bode well for the Protestants of the small village of Logan:
The Unity of the Brethren (Czech: Jednota bratrska, Latin: [[Unitas Fratrum]], also known as Czech or Bohemian Brothers or Brethren) is a Christian denomination whose roots are in the pre-reformation work of Jan Hus, who was martyred in 1415.


The reforms of Jan Hus, which included providing the Scriptures to the people in their own language, and that both elements of communion should be available to the people, were popular with the Czech people, but met extreme opposition from church authorities. Hus was executed, but his teachings led to the formation of the Hussite movement. One of the later branches of the hussitism was also Unity of the Brethren. The roots of this radical and pacifistic stream within the early reformation movement go back to 1457 in a small village called Kunvald near Zamberk, on Litice lordship of George Podiebrad, in the North-East part of Bohemia.

Unity of the Brethren? - Misogynists!

From Bohemia! Ain't that filled with them Bohemians? And ain't they part of that nefarious creative class:
Additional to these two main groups of creative people, the usually much smaller group of Bohemians are also included in the Creative class.

EEKS - Arugula Smoking Acid Heads!

!!!!! To the muskets! Man the crossbows! Fetch the flails! !!!!!

Great heaving breast plates of original light!:
Joan of Arc's Letter to the Hussites (23 March 1430) — In 1430, Joan of Arc dictated a letter threatening to lead a crusading army against the Hussites unless they returned to "the Catholic Faith and the original Light". This link contains a translation of the letter plus notes and commentary.

Staybehinder Lounge remembers 

What Bob Marley said:

Them crazy, them crazy
We gonna chase those crazy
Baldheads out of town
Chase those crazy baldheads
Out of town

I and I build a cabin
I and I plant the corn
So didn't my people before me
Slave for this country
And now you look me with your scorn
And then you eat up all my corn

We're gonna chase those crazy
Chase those crazy
Chase those crazy baldheads
Chase those crazy bumpheads
Oh chase those crazy baldheads right out of town

Build your penitentiary, we build your schools
The brainwash education, tryin' to make us your fools
Well, Hatered is your reward for our love
Telling us of your God above

We gonna chase those crazy
Chase those crazy
Chase those crazy baldheads
Chase those crazy bumpheads
Chase those crazy baldheads out of town

Here come the con-man
Coming with his con-plan
We won't take no bribe, we've got to stay alive

We're gonna chase those crazy
Chase those crazy
Chase those crazy baldheads
Chase those crazy bumpheads
Chase those crazy baldheads right out of town
