Note: We are back from vacation – have been for a week. I required a week to recover from my vacation. Cruel Wife still extends her heartfelt thanks to all of you who expressed condolences on the passing of her mom.
Relating to the title…
Obviously nature doesn’t abhor a vacuum or Joe Biden’s eardrums would have imploded and his eyeballs would have been sucked into his skull by now.
It’s not new news, but you can’t help but wince when you hear stuff like this:
KUDLOW: You know, what did [Biden] say? ‘Y’all going to be put back in chains’? That almost has racial overtones, Rudy Giuliani. What’s your take on that?
GIULIANI: Well, I think if it came from somebody serious maybe we’d get all excited about it. But the — I think the vice president of the United States has become a laugh line on late night television. I mean, he — I’ve never seen a vice president that has made as many mistakes, said as many stupid things. I mean, there’s a real fear if, God forbid, he ever had to be entrusted with the presidency, whether he really has the mental capacity to handle it. I mean, this guy just isn’t bright. He’s never been bright. He isn’t bright. And people think, ‘Well, he just talks a little too much.’ Actually he’s not very smart.
I mean this in all honesty when I say I would jump in front of a bullet if some nut tried to hurt Obama, purely out of fear that the next guy in line for President is Biden. We can all complain about Obama as much as we like but he is actually less scary to me than the idea of President Biden.
Biden couldn’t win a debate against an banana slug, but he could say something just stupid enough to cause serious problems.
Let’s hope Romney/Ryan as a dynamic duo clinch the deal this November. It’s closer than you think, folks.
Obama is hurting more than I could ever imagine if there’s talk like this:
In a veritable melange of topics tonight, Alert and Constant Reader mrmacs has forwarded the following link for steampunk corsetry. Cruel Wife perused the site and said “That was very well done. And for good prices, too.”
Trust me, that is one hell of an endorsement.
Now, I like David Wong (the writer) and mostly enjoyed John Dies at the End, and while part of his arguments on Cracked.com at the article below are total bullshit (global warming, the point of Frodo being an orphan is a stretch), the bulk of what he’s written is pretty true. Think how much of your programming is pure Hollywood and stories. He does a reasonable amount of thinking. Here’s the one that made our blood run cold when I read the article to Cruel Wife:
So what if a lot of your interesting party trivia isn’t accurate?
What, you don’t think this same principle goes for the important stuff?
When you went on your first date, you had a picture in your mind of what that should look like — how both of you should behave, what type of activities couples do together, which one of you should pay, etc. Where did that picture come from? Did you take a dating class in elementary school? Did your parents sit you down and tell you? Bullshit. You saw it in a TV show, or a cartoon, a solid decade before you were even old enough to drive.
