Happy Friday Dog Blogging

Well it looks like it's goodbye to serial ass-rapist Dr. David Hager, who today announced he would no longer be available to assault women serve at the pleasure of his Majesty King George II at the FDA. Which of course had nothing to do with the Nation article relased yesterday. Hager's reply? The Nation article didn't tell all the facts, and was therefore not truthful. He did not, however, deny any of the allegations made by his ex-wife.

Kobe (pictured above) offers his parting goodbyes to Dr. Hager -- not that Kobe ever wishes anyone ill, but on the whole he thinks the nation, womankind and his mom in particular will be better off without this man making far-reaching health care decisions for women in this country. Kobe is well aware that whoever takes Dr. Hager's place will probably be just as bad or worse, but he will stand against that one too when the time comes. A dog can only do so much, you know.

In the hope that your weekend is an excellent one, Kobe would like to provide you with some theme music -- Soul Sides has two rare Jurassic 5 cuts and Jim at Vinyl Mine has one of his patented killer Coffee and Cigarettes mixes -- this one featuring a DJ Tripp mash-up of Missy Elliot, as well as tracks by Sleater-Kinny and Viva Voce. And over at Stereogum -- well, words just can't describe the new Paul Anka cover of Blackhole Sun. You'll just have to listen for yourself (I actually dig it). And I'm truly sorry I didn't post the mash-up of Yaz's Don't Go and Veruka Salt's Seether before it came down, it's a gem. If you want it email me and I'll see if I can figure out how to send it.
