After A Very Long Day Away From The Internet


Wrung out and tired, I return to find that my blog posts have not written themselves,m and the many "Thank You" notes I owe to many people have not spontaneously appeared.

You'd think after 10 years, the internet would cut me a little slack.

Let's see (cracking the newspaper open and firing the rubber band - thwap -- across the room and causing two pairs of cat's ears to swivel like the Very Large Array) what's been going on in the world.

Corn crop looks bumper this year, tassel height impressive, so good news there.

The local sports franchise has had a spirited month.

Oh Dagwood! Is the world every going to leave you in peace long enough to eat your sandwich?  Also you do realize that your wife is screwing her boss, right?  (NSFW)



And -- what's this?...

Oh.  My.  Sweet.  
And.  Fluffy. Lord.

Well (cracks, knuckles, fashions newspaper into an effigy of Chuck Todd, sets it on fire) looks like I have some thinking to do...

Sure, Griffin has found a way to give the 'heir apparent' his "rightful" place in this world. And sure, Todd and Scarbs will hold his hand each week during this obvious internship. But what i wanna know is how frequently will Mika be joining the Sunday morning Circle Jerk?

Nice work. I'm not what you'd call an early adopter of popular culture. This explains why I'm only partially through the 2nd season of Heisenberg's adventure. Now I know how at least one plot plays out.

The Internet is a Harsh Mistress, friend.

In American corporate board rooms. There are too many that sit on too many boards of directors. Your Carly Fiorina sat on Compaq as well as HP. You have a oil and gas board director sitting on the board of General Mills.
As if they are so knowledgeable and tied to each corporate entity. Maybe those elite costly private schools aren't producing enough board of director level qualified graduates.

This is why there are times that I think Rodger Ailes sits on the MSNBC board of directors and gives his in put. That may explain why Chuck the Todd got the gig of MTP.
I have seen enough. If I cared to see Joe Scarbourough or his likes, I could watch Joe in the morn. There again, MTP is just a freeway on ramp to Bill O Rielly or the Hanitizer.

This week I have often been reminded of the old chinese curse;

May you live in interesting times.

Jerry B, I've been thinking the same thing since November of 2000.

Toss in Harold Ford Jr, and a dash of Mark Halperin, and we have Morning Joe - Weekend Edition.

It doesn't help that John F-ing McCain is still going to be a regular on the Right Wing Cluster#!%! that is MTP.

We would all be better off if MTP was replaced by actual cartoons. Or perhaps a puppet show. Oh wait....

Chuckles the Toad is interviewing President Obsma (billed as "Exclusive"). Dear God. Don't know it it's part of his debut on Bleat The Mess.
