Stormy stuff.

Took Cruel Wife 3 hours to drive home tonight.  I went to get the kids (took today off because I had more than enough hours worked last week) and it was cold and icy.  Really cold.  Really icy.

So anyway, it sucked.  I won’t go into all the reasons why.  Just take my word for it, it did.

Global warming is making Michigan a really damned cold place.  Make sense of that, willya?

Pearls Before Swine is a favorite comic of mine.  Pig and Rat just make me happy.  I’m putting this strip in to make a plug for Pastis.  May his readership swell.

Pig is my Hero.

Heroes should not be necessarily brave, or strong, or demi-god-like.  Heroes should have one requirement and that is that they must be steadfast.  Pig is steadfast and loyal to a fault – flying in the face of the Nobel committee.  Good for him.


The Daily News…

Angry that his teenage daughter was dating an older man, a German dad went to the 57-year-old’s home and castrated him with a bread knife, police said.

Helmut Seifert, originally from Russia, recently pled guilty to attacking Phillip Genscher, according to London’s Telegraph.

Good for you, man!  I… uh… I mean… that’s horrible!   He castrated the poor… no, I meant what I said, good on you, Helmut.

I saw it as my duty as a father. – Helmut Seifert

How can we contribute to his defense fund?


Punish the leaker, not the papers…?  WTF?

Punish the leakers, spare the press: WikiLeaks ushers in scary new age of journalism

There is a huge difference between freedom of the press and breaking the law.  I don’t know how journalism was able to get away with granting itself protection from the law but it’s not right.  You can’t claim that just because the other guy broke into an ATM and threw money in the street that you aren’t breaking the law when you pocket that money.

Pigs and Lipstick Never Changes.   Nice campaign slogan.

Not quite his platform unless it is the platform of ill-mannered unchecked mouths…  This is sure to get those women voters a-flockin’ back to ol’ Bammy.

With clubs and 2×4’s.  And lipstick.

Oh my... they really can and do wear lipstick. Meaning, a pissed off Palin might turn out to be indistinguishable from a pit bull.

What’s the difference between a more hopeful kind of politics and old-fashioned attacks? Lipstick.

Barack Obama says the John McCainSarah Palin policies don’t represent change, they’re “just calling the same thing something different.”

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig,” Obama said during a town-hall style event here Tuesday night.

The comment played on Republican vice presidential candidate Palin’s joke during the Republican National Convention that the only difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom was lipstick.

Note:  Make sure you read the WSJ’s helpful update at the end of the article – always a nice touch to assist the reader – must remember that.

Sure, he was playing off her joke, but you don’t always get to make the joke yerself, bud. Calling a woman a pig might seem funny on paper but it is touch and go as far as political suicide goes.  I mean the comparison fails:

Woman is to pitbull ≠ woman is to pig?  FAIL.

I suppose we ought to be thankful for one thing – at least the boys seem to have finally noticed that Palin is a woman and that lipstick sort of comes with the territory.  I’m thinking they’ve been exposed to a certain senator (tap-tap) from Idaho too long.

Update: Now we know how he handles under stress, so this is a valid data point.  He whinges.

“See, it would be funny, but the news media decided that would be the lead story yesterday. This happens every election cycle. Every four years, this is what we do. This is what they want to spend two of the last 55 days talking about…Enough!” he said.

Obama called the attacks “lies, outrage and swift boat politics.”

“These are serious times and they call for a serious debate…spare me all the phony outrage. Spare me all the phony talk about change,” he said.


Are we dead yet?

Proving that Google Sometimes has a Sense of Humor if not Outright Patriotism

No, apparently protons went a-whizzing.  Nobody died.

The countdown was funny.

8… 7… 6… 5… 4… … 3… … … … 2 … … … … … … … 1… 0… … … (muffled) Ok, start it.

It had little to offer in theatrics.  The oomph was lost.
