American Gods crossed with Voyagers?

Here’s Sci Fi’s description of ["Going Homer"]: "Greek and Roman deities walk among us, but only 12 year old Homer Ulysses Jones can see them for what they truly are. When Homer and his father are forced to flee a custody battle that would likely separate them, they journey from Los Angeles to the home of their ancestors – in Ithaca, N.Y. As they travel through the heart of Americana, Homer’s eyes will be opened to a mystical landscape of capricious Gods; some will help our heroes, some will divert them and others will try to kill them to prevent them from reaching their ultimate goal – home."

Huh? The Wall Street Journal has an article celebrating the 10 year anniversary of blogging. It cites Jorn's Dec 1997 post "I decided to start my own webpage logging the best stuff I find as I surf, on a daily basis" as the advent.

I'm sure that I'm the two billionth person to say that web logging must be older than that. Heck, I started Foam Totem in Sep 1997 (see the calendar below), and I was reading Dave Winer and Suck.com long before that. At the time, I didn't consider Foam Totem anything particularly special (though I did write my own content management system as there really weren't any others readily available).

Years ago, the Republicans came up with the epithet "Tax and Spend Liberal", which they used to paint pretty much any Democrat regardless of their fiscal proclivities. Considering the current policy of cutting taxes (largely for those who don't need them cut) and vast spending (for the war, for social programs they promised, and pork for interests they are beholden to) I think a label is needed to brand candidates which support such silliness.

"Pawn and Spend Republican" is a good one, I think.

I rather like "Spend and Pray Republican" too. Pray that someone will be able to pay for it later on. Pray that the Iraq somehow magics itself "fixed". Pray that the heathens will reject evolution...

Ideas?
