Noises Off

I don’t know if I’m alone in this, but the brief period between the Christmas holiday celebrations and the full-on bacchanalian blitzkrieg that is Hogmanay in these climes always seems like an unreal limbo.

Maybe it’s because I work from home, but every weekday seems like Sunday, the skinny newspapers that do appear are pared down to the important issues, like coverage of bloatered knobs in drag hunting varmints with hounds, and my lackadaisical first world-problem lassitude as I pick my way around the not-yet-stowed or yet-to-be-delivered Christmas gifts and the debris of a dozen meals and beer sessions cluttering the kitchen to try to muster the enthusiasm to do some work is not improved by yet another round of 90 mph gales and darkness at noon, with the ever-present threat of a random power cut to scupper the plans of the day.

Buffeted and dazed, I cast around the Web, while I still can, in search of illumination and comfort, and am buoyed by one less than seasonably generous thought. Every day when I wake up, I thank the Lord I’m not a Republican:

Paul maintains his lead

For President in 2012, Mitt Romney

Romney in striking distance of Iowa win

Gingrich wouldn’t vote for Ron Paul

Damn, y’all can’t catch a break on that awful weather! Hope you stay powered up!

Did everyone but me already know that John Kasich (despised Gov. of Ohio) was a Republican candidate for President in 2000? Guess we should consider ourselves lucky he didn’t get the nomination.

(Kasich was a candidate for Pres? Did he walk through a wrong door or something? :puzzled how things even happen in this world:)

I read an article about undecided Iowa voters. I would say the proper term might be “noncommitted”. As in, if I supported any of these people, I should be….

I heard the Romneybot2012 on the radio coming home from work yesterday; he was doing some retail politicking in NH.  He sounded so damned phoney I had to wonder what anyone sees in this twit.  Maybe I’m not the proper audience. 

I did enjoy the way he highhandedly and noncommitally answered a constituent who wanted him to promise to not close the local gubmint-contract-dependent shipyard.  Ah yes, rethug voters: against big gubmint and totally bonkers for the Free Market, except when their paycheck is involved.  Mitt’s answer should have had the questioner burning holes with their hate-filled eyeballs in the back of the Romneybot’s helment of hair as he sashayed away.

I look forward to Ron Paul winning Iowa just because.

YAFB, it’s summer here and pissing down.  Good for my vege garden, but.

Nellcote, I saw that on C4P the other night.  I’ve been checking out that site in honour of Strange.
