Banksy Does New Orleans

Banksy, the British street artist whose works pop up at random and all over the place, has done a series in New Orleans to commemorate the aftermath of Katrina. Banky's works usually comment on politics, culture and current events. Some picture Fred Radtke, the "Grey Ghost" - the New Orleans anti-graffiti crusader known for his practice of covering over graffiti with gray paint. See more of the New Orleans work here or search Banksy on Flickr for more outstanding works. (Thanks to Jockohomo for this info!)
The artist has posted pics of his works, including commentary here.

I think he's going to make an intensely political choice, not a governing choice," Rove said. "He's going to view this through the prism of a candidate, not through the prism of president; that is to say, he's going to pick somebody that he thinks will on the margin help him in a state like Indiana or Missouri or Virginia. He's not going to be thinking big and broad about the responsibilities of president.

-Karl Rove on Obama's potential running mate choice, Tim Kaine, Gov. of VA. He continued...

With all due respect again to Governor Kaine, he's been a governor for three years. I don't think people could really name a big, important thing that he's done. He was mayor of the 105th largest city in America. So if he were to pick Governor Kaine, it would be an intensely political choice where he said, `You know what? I'm really not, first and foremost, concerned with, is this person capable of being president of the United States? What I'm concerned about is, can he bring me the electoral votes of the state of Virginia, the 13 electoral votes in Virginia?'

Oh, and Palin has been governor for two years and I'm sure Wasilla is just a teensy weeny bit down the line smaller than 105. How can these people take her seriously when their top strategist dismissed her months ago?!

Carnival is here! The theme for 2008 is Wild Wild West! Carnival is one of the best weeks in Provincetown. There are a variety of events, costumes, and hot men all week long. And the crowd is very diverse - a fun mix of bear, muscle, women, twink and average joes...and in this case...Calamity Janes! Click thru the pic for more - and check back - I'll keep adding some!

This is too funny. Paris refuses to be used and makes McCain look like a tool. See ya at the inaugural ball, bitches!
