Man, the rules for CLUE have really changed since I was a kid...

What a waste of time.

How old was Rielle Hunter?

If I had any respect for Charlie Crist this would have reduced it.

"Andrew Dice Clay IS Ann Althouse in Oliver Stone's Jim Morrison: First Blood, Part II!"

Coketown said...

It was with Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. And other members of the 27 club.

Per Crist:

"Perhaps most importantly, Mr. Morrison himself did not exercise his right to remain silent. Instead, he forcefully denied the charge that he exposed himself on stage."

Well, that proves it. I think the Cock in question actually belonged to some Puerto Rican guy.

And will the Boomer's *ever* let go?

titus bait.

Didn't we discussed John Edwards cock yesterday?

I'm beginning to get cock fatigue.

Remarks by
GOVERNOR CHARLIE CRIST
to the Florida Board of Executive Clemency
Tallahassee, Florida

December 9, 2010

"James Douglas Morrison – we know him as Jim Morrison – appealed the judgment and sentence he received after being convicted 40 years ago of two misdemeanors. However, he died before his appeal could be heard.

Because he us unable to state his case for clemency before this board today, I offer to do so for him."


I really starting to like this guy.

Mark O said...

If you know anything at all about Morrison, you know it was soft. It wasn't just fatigue.

Jim Morrison found redemption through Crist.

kent said...

I want to see Charlie Crist stumble blearily into the courtroom, shirtless and reeking of gin, shrieking: "'FATHER?!?' 'Yes, son?' 'I WANT TO KILL YOU!' 'MOTHER?' 'Yes, son?' I WANT TO... YEEEEAAARRRRRRRRRRRGHHHH -- !!!"

LordSomber said...

We'll never know where it was.

It was that inscrutable.

Coketown said...

Penny: I love you. That was amazing.

There's no pardon for being in the most overrated rock band ever.

Wait. Wait. Jim Morison was in the Grateful Dead -- ?!?

Shamcock Redemption..

I'm tempted to call Penny a thread winner.. but its in God's hands, not mine ;)

AST said...

In this case, guilt or innocence is in God’s hands, not ours.

That is the stupidest statement from a government official I've ever read. Why not just open all the prisons and let felons run free? Or strike the law he broke altogether? What a chump!

Charlie Crist's last gasp of public "service." Interestingly enough, Morrison's grave in Paris is the most visited tomb in the Pere Lachaise cemetery. I took my daughter and two of her cousins to Paris a couple of years ago and all the girls wanted to see was his grave while I visited the graves of great painters and scientists like Claude Bernard.

Crist is not risen!

(...or should I say Crist's mojo is not risen)

Mark O said...

Inscrutable? I love the pluperfect subjunctive.

But, are you sure Morrison was really Dylan?

rcocean said...

Jim Morrison is the William Shatner of Rock Stars.

It was the Lizard King in the ballroom with his cock!

I guess it is only fair to pardon him for profanity charges - since now we have members of the legislature profaning all over the place...
Dems Gone Wild: ‘F*%k the President’

Those racists! Those terrorists! I hope Janet Napolitano is all over that place.

Like a real god would give a damn.

Unless he was a Greek god, in which case I'm sure there would have been approval, and much respect.

Even though it would have been for something that apparently didn't even happen in the first place.

I'm just glad that the Oompa-Loompa isn't going to be my Senator.

Hey, what can I say? He's an old guy!

Penny said...

And Morrison appears to be dead!

And Morrison appears to be dead!

"No, no! Not a bit of it! He's pining for the fjords -- !"

Or maybe he just neglected to leaven the loaves.

“I think we would have been right in here granting the pardon in recognition of his incredible talent,” Ms. Sink said. (She said it twice in the story.)
I care nothing for the case or the crime. But what is the matter with these people? A pardon because of his incredible talent? Sick.

Call it "The Polanski Principle."

Althouse, have mercy, put up a cafe.

bagoh20 said...

"“It’s a real relief for Doors fan all over the world,’’ said Mr. Zidanic, who later called the granting of the pardon a “historic moment” and a “moving experience.”"

Yea, that's what it was.

edutcher said...

Who the Hell cares about Jim Morrison anyway? Crist could have gotten the senile hippie vote if he'd done this 2 months earlier. Now it's even more pointless.

PS What deborah said.

Lem said...

Althouse, have mercy, put up a cafe.

I second that.. I really enjoy those.

Chef Mojo said...

And the wussification of dead rock stars continues...

I mean, all that Jim Morrison has riding for him is the fact that he was notorious. Whipping his cock (and what's wrong with "cock?" It's a notorious word!) onstage was part of his legend, thus contributing to his notoriety.

So now that dicksmack, Charlie Crist, has gone and pardoned Morrison, thus whittling away at Morrison's bad ass, cock whippin', notorious rock star persona.

It's like finding out the local bearded, leather clad gang biker is part of the quilting circle.

Penny said...

"Or maybe he just neglected to leaven the loaves."

Titus isn't Crist, for cripes sake.

Personally? I like his scatological humor. Sure beats Crist's crap.

Crist never got to ride Morrison's mojo rising.

Jim Morrison, "...part of the quilting circle."

Chef Mojo?

You always been a bad speller, or was that a typo? haha

In any case, it's a damned good thing you aren't cookin' up "History".

LAMENT - Jim Morrison

Lament for my cock
Sore and crucified
I seek to know you
Aquiring soulful wisdom
You can open walls of mystery
Stripshow
How to aquire death in the morning show
TV death which the child absorbs
Deathwell mystery which makes me write
Slow train, the death of my cock gives life
Forgive the poor old people who gave us entry
Taught us god in the child's prayer in the night
Guitar player
Ancient wise satyr
Sing your ode to my cock
Caress it's lament
Stiffen and guide us, we frozen
Lost cells
I sacrifice my cock on the alter of silence

madAsHell said...

Over-rated??

I dunno. My kids found "The Doors" without my help.

Britney Spears, Barely Man-enough, Tupac Shaker, The BeeGees, Grand Funk Railroad, Deep Purple, Peter Frampton ....they are over-rated. My kids ignored their music.

deborah said...

@ Lem ;) It's nice just to chit-chat.

Socratic method.

The question really means, “in whose hands was Jim Morrison’s cock that night”

So many hands. So little time.

These Socratic questions are dulling my sensitivity to the 7 major values of certainty in law. I mean, with so many hands on his cock by members of this particular pardon review board, this pardon will have a prejudicial effect on the general standards that I have with regard to what the law is like. The law of this pardon, like Morrison’s cock, is just plain “open-ended, spongey, discretion-ridden.”

To add predictability and determinativeness back to the law, and to this pardon, and to whomever handled Jim’s member, I’d say the Plaster Casters were the last to handle it.

Maybe we should send a plastered copy to each member – of the pardon board.

Iran Placing Medium-Range Missiles in Venezuela; Can Reach the U.S.


The situation that is unfolding in Venezuela has some resemblance to the Cuba [missile] crisis of 1962...

Back [then], thanks to the stern stance adopted by the Kennedy administration, the crisis was defused

Nowadays, however, we do not see the same firmness from the present administration. On the contrary, we see a lax attitude, both in language and in deeds, that results in extending hands when our adversaries have no intention of shaking hands with us. Iran is soon going to have a nuclear weapon, and there are no signs that UN sanctions will in any way deter the Ayatollah's regime from completing its nuclear program. We know that Iran already has missiles that can carry an atomic warhead over Israel and over the Arabian Peninsula. Now we learn that Iran is planning to build a missile base close to the US borders. How longer do we have to wait before the Obama administration begins to understand threats?

VIDEO: Dem Rep Blames Speaker Pelosi For Holding Tax Cuts Hostage

What a slow-motion clown funnycar pile-up the bumbling, fumbling political left is proving itself to be, daily, to an increasingly incredulous (and horrified) electorate.

It'd qualify as purest, unalloyed comedy gold, if not for the perfectly good country they're obliviously destroying in the process.

Crowing, not flashing.

Of course.

India FM: TSA pat-down of ambassador “unacceptable

EXCERPT: "The Times of India reported that despite showing her diplomatic credentials and not setting off any alarms, Amb. Shankar was chosen for a pat-down at the Jackson, Mississippi airport last week, and suggested it was because she was wearing a sari.

"'In this case, Shankar was not only asked to step aside for a secondary screening, but also put through a pat-down that was rather public, although TSA guidelines stipulate that the screening has to be conducted in private if the passenger so demands,' the Times of India reported. 'Eyewitnesses said Shankar was singled out for secondary screening among at least 30 others and it was clear that her sari was the reason for the TSA alert.'


HECKUVAJOB, JANET!!!

An amusing reference to the fact that Mr. Morrison started out as a Bantam weight lo those many years ago?

Salsa dog covered up beats Morrison on music and moves.

Loving the references to Dem public crackups directed at His Wonderfulness these past few days. But remember, saying "You lie!" was such a hideous crime.

Like I posted yesteday - waiting for the MSM stories about a Republican Civil War™ in 3...2...1...

The Rites of Dionysius. Didn't the followers fall into a frenzy and tear apart the god and eat his flesh? They used a sacrifical lamb back then, but rock stars are an acceptable substitute....Of all the sacrificial lambs of our time, Jim Morrison was the most fitting. Elvis was too bloated. James Dean was suitably sleek and fragrant, but the muse of cinema is insufficiently outrageous.....The pardon of Morrison is the final movement of the tragedy. His body has been subsumed and digested by the body politic. He is part of us. Bring on the next Dionysius....I just hope Justin Bieber is up for the task.
