This gentleman, Jimmy Little, a famous Aboriginal country performer, just passed away last April. Sounds like Johnnie Ray with a lot less alcohol.
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:12pm Matt from Springfield:

@P PIN: The GTDS atmosphere is very mellow, and filled of jokes -- like Doug said, don't overthink it, just ease up and go with it.

Late arrivals. Hey, Doug, Matt and all! Had to finish up the latest "Long Way Round" episode and get dinner first.

Didgerido indeed!

Funny the Yahoo greeting. My family loved calling Philo "Yahoo Tapioca" (a Hoosier mispronunciation of his actual Finnish first and middle names).

it is absolutely bizarre here weatherwise in northern nj. 60ish today & yesterday. went about in shorts. very strange. i anticipate we'll pay some horrible karmic price in the form of a foot of snow or something.

@LJFW: Anytime you have an Interwebs-connected computer, it seems to take DST and the like into account. I'm sure smartphones will self adjust their times, or are close to doing so.

Hi, Aurelie! Happy Birthday, Jean Luc! Doug, Sean pronounces it with the accent on the last syllable gil-ARd. She is quite embattled still -- and hanging tough!

Now, who's going to take such a strong stand against the rampant misogyny in local, state and national government in the U.S.!
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:33pm Jessie:

Sean also said that apparently she had very little time to prepare this speech and kind of tossed it together right before giving it. Thrilling! I'd love to hear Obama use the word "repulsive" in a speech.

Hear hear, kat330.
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:34pm Matt from Springfield:

They say the way to reach an Aussie accent is: fish and chips.
Aussies would say: "feesh and cheeps". Kiwis in contrast say "fush and chups" (or rather "f'sh and ch'ps").
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/4/12 6:35pm Doug Schulkind:

The prick, Tony Abbott, is sitting just across a table from Ms. Gillard as she skewers him so magnificently. At one point she catches him looking at his watch. See if you can tell when that happens!

@Jessie: Hope you'll enjoy this land, I really miss the people, I went for a meeting 2 years ago between indigenous/melanesian youth
And check the Redfern radio (aboriginal community radio the first in the Pacific :))
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:37pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: It's this BULLSHIT! about "decorum" in politics here. Those in power decide what's suitable for discussion, and call you "rude" if you challenge it. At least in other parliaments raucousness is an established tradition, and makes it easier to bring up issues of [in]justice.
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:37pm Uncle Michael:

This is amazing. American politics is just too damned polite.
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Mr. FEEsher ;)
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:39pm kat330:

Odd thing is I see very little decorum in the press statements of the worst offenders in U.S. govt. Locally the misogyny is frightful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/4/12 6:41pm Doug Schulkind:

"Mr. Slipper" is the member of Parliament who the right-wingers wanted to stand down because of "sexual text messages." Slipper had been an ally of the opposition, but now, with his humiliation causing potential political damage to the Labor Party (PM Gillard's party), the right-wing pulled out the long knives. Not without the PM's amazing speech here, first.

Slipper eventually did resign...
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:42pm listener james from westwood:

i can only imagine all the right-wing sexist bullshit against clinton from the 1990s will be dredged up when she runs in '16.

i'd be happy if she pulled a 2nd term as secy of state.
good christ i wish obama would take down the republicans in congress on the susan rice appointment or the fiscal cliff in terms as hard as these.
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:47pm kat330:

I really like Elizabeth Warren, too. But what women and minorities have to endure in cat-calling, public office is a far greater sacrifice. Doughy white middle-aged men have had a VERY long run. Time to turn over the reins.
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:49pm Uncle Michael:

(checks for dough) check....
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Amazing! I thought you were playing Faiport because of the Trevor Lucas connection!
Extradition is great, that's a doppelsinger for Sandy D!
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:50pm kat330:

Close to home we really have to focus on toppling Mitch McConnell. I applaud Ashley Judd wanting to wade into the fray, but I'm unsure if she's a good bet against the Kentucky powers-that-be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/4/12 6:51pm Doug Schulkind:

Ashley's opposition to mountaintop-removal strip-mining all but dooms her in Kentucky. Apparently.

Have to go, --> work time Thanks Doug really love the "John Hawes Jazz Band "
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:51pm Matt from Springfield:

@LJFW: It helps that Obama is sticking to his guns on Rice, backed her up publicly. I didn't have an opinion on the next Sec'y of State before, but now she really needs to be BECAUSE it will make them mad!
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:51pm listener james from westwood:

america doesn't look like what the repubs thought it looked like w/r/t race and sex a month ago. not by a long shot. we need government that represents america in that way. the numbers got better for women in congress this time, but it's still not 50/50.

hard to say though - she's popular enough hopefully to overcome that - there's also talk that she would wait and run against Rand Paul.
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:53pm Philo Gristle:

I think there was a story that didn't get a lot of play how McCain is really pissed off at Rice because of some comments she made during his '08 run.... wouldn't surprise me.
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:53pm Jessie:

Buh-buh Aurelie! Werner Herzog!
  Tue. 12/4/12 6:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: I'd prefer Ashley J to a Tea challenger, but Mitch could be doomed even before the November election; his only priorities were to defeat O, at the expense of anything that could help the beleaguered American people, and to take control of the Senate. He failed BOTH miserably. The Teabag vultures are already circling the old, ineffective, "Establishment" POS.

mccain needs to accept that he lost in '08 and that every chance to confirm an obama appointee isn't another chance to win that election.

Heh, James! Every unfortunate photo published of McConnell makes him look like a Muppet.

Wow, I agree with Matt about Extradition and the singer sounding like Sandy Denny! At first I thought it was...I asked myself, "Self, is the Drummer playing Sandy Denny!?" :)
  Mon. 12/10/12 9:38am Doug Schulkind:

The Drummer has graced the airwaves with Sandy Denny before and he'll do it again! And I loved her in "Up the Down Staircase"!! (cough, cough)
  Mon. 12/10/12 9:47am Van in DC:

Ah okay, greats! And greats was the show!

I'm gonna have to rewind this again to hear that speech / rant thing. That was something else :)
