It can’t be said often enough

Via Making Light, Charles Pierce at Eric Alterman’s blog: I have now lived through three major episodes in my life where the political elite have told me quite plainly that neither I nor my fellow citizens are sufficiently mature to suffer the public prosecution of major crimes committed within my government. The first was when […]

Shopping frenzy

Filed under: Politics, Silicon Valley

I’ve had to rediscover shopping lately, because I need some new clothes. I either a)hate the clothes I’ve been wearing and desperately want a new style, b)need new clothes because nothing I have fits at the moment, or c)have discovered a secret need to wear high heels. Okay, I don’t much understand (c) either, but […]

Did you ever think

Filed under: Politics

Like everyone else, I am waiting for tomorrow to be OVER already. All Presidential elections are horrible, each in its own unique way.

Debate drinking game

Filed under: Politics

Obama – “Look” – 1 sip Mccain – “My friends” – 1 sip “Change” – jumping jack (to burn off alcohol) Obama – “Are you f’ing kidding me?” – 2 sips McCain – “POW” – chug McCain – out and out lie – 1 sip (trying to pace ourselves) McCain – mentioning Sarah Palin – […]

About canceling that debate

Filed under: Politics

Got an unusual comment from Christina the other day: You were a joy to read… before twitter. Now, not so much. Seriously, have you not better things to say?
