"There's always the hope that this might not work" | Main | Senator Ted Stevens Wants to Take Your Skinemax Away
March 02, 2005

Did Anyone Record Today's Inside Politics on CNN?

Random Birkel tells me that I was just mentioned (by Judy Woodruff, no less).

I don't know if he's joking or not. But if you recorded it, please save it.

And if you're one of those guys who somehow knows the Ward Churchill style Totem Magic necessary to put a TV clip on the internet... my gosh, but I'd be appreciative to see it.

I'd love to show my Pappy, jes' to let him know his boy is doin' all right.

Hmmmm... There does seem to be a small uptick in Google and Yahoo referrals for the search words "Ace of Spades."

Then again, I just got a hit for a search on "Frank Gorshin Riddler," too.

Update: Birkel says scout's honor, Ace of Spades HQ was just name-checked by CNN.

Paula Zahn-- here I come, baby!

No CNN-alanche: The site was down because we got hit, once again, by a blitz of spammers.

Lexis/Nexis Transcript: Someone who didn't identify himself/herself (though I have two likely suspects in mind) was nice enough to forward me the transcript of the very brief name-check:

Time now to check what's going on in the blogosphere. And with me once again today to talk about what they are talking about, CNN political producer Abbi Tatton and Jacki Schechner. She's our blog reporter.

So, Jacki, I bet it's not baseball.

JACKI SCHECHNER, CNN BLOG REPORTER: No, it's more like Byrd. We've already heard what Senator Robert Byrd said on the floor of the Senate, comparing Republican tactics to Adolph Hitler's rise to power. Conservative blogs all over it.

Over at Captain's Quarters, he's got plenty to say, including this comment: "Byrd, with his attempted filibuster of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, is the last person who should be standing in the well of the Senate calling
anyone a Nazi." As some people may remember, that filibuster 14 hours.

ABBI TATTON, CNN POLITICAL PRODUCER: So the conservative bloggers
linking to this last night, and outraged for a couple of reasons. First of all, the comments by the senator himself, like what he actually said, but also the coverage of those comments. Radio Blogger here looking at how the
mainstream media has covered what Senator Byrd said. He goes through newspapers, cable news channels, left-wing blogs, other news channels as well, saying that there's no mention of Byrd.

Another thing just quickly, comments by another senator. This is Ted Stevens of Alaska. He wants to expand the FCC's indecency standards to cover cable. This also not going down very well.

Let's quickly look at Ace of Spades there. "Senator Ted Stevens wants to take your skinmax (ph) away. As Charlton Heston would say, 'Out of my cold, dead hands.'"

SCHECHNER: Want to go quickly over to Dr. Zhiblogo.com (ph), which is now -- or, I'm sorry, (UNINTELLIGIBLE), which is now my favorite name for a ablog, who says, "How stupid is this?" And says if there's anything that he doesn't want to see or he doesn't want his son to see, he'll just change the channel -- Judy.

WOODRUFF: Dr. Zhiblogo (ph), is that what you said -- Zhiblogo (ph)?

SCHECHNER: Dr. Zhiblogo (ph).

WOODRUFF: OK. That's a good one. All right. Abbi, Jacki, thank you both. Sorry we had to cut that short because of the baseball event at the White House.


And Random Birkel says they showed the site's banner. First time ever. Cool.

Unfortunately, it was still the Gannonhead banner.

Oh, well. Serves me right for leaving a joke up for too damn long.
