and happy I was to drift off to sleep all warm and snuggly and full of cinophilic goodness.
But then, the dawn.
And at the crack of this mean, skull-punching, Chicago winter Monday dawn I found myself being rudely whiplashed out of the rack by the Clinton Campaign’s declaration that Oscar Fevah Sunday was over, baby!
That it was now "Gratuitous, deliberately provocative, spiteful,
desperate, childish Rovian graphics"-Monday

Obama Slams Clinton Camp Over Drudge Photo
By Perry Bacon Jr.
Barack Obama's campaign this morning sharply criticized Hillary Clinton's campaign for reportedly sending a picture to the Drudge Report of the Illinois senator that showed him in African dress, with Obama campaign manager David Plouffe accusing Clinton of engaging in "shameful, offensive fear-mongering."
The picture, taken of Obama while he was in Kenya in 2006 on a Senate trip to Africa, shows him in Somali garb, and Obama aides suggested the Clinton campaign circulated it to call attention to Obama's African ancestry and give credence to persistent and false allegations circulating online that he is a Muslim. Obama is a Christian who attends a United Church of Christ congregation in Chicago.
Clinton campaign officials did not deny sending Drudge the picture. Instead, in a statement, campaign manager Maggie Williams said, "If Barack Obama's campaign wants to suggest that a photo of him wearing traditional Somali clothing is divisive, they should be ashamed. Hillary Clinton has worn the traditional clothing of countries she has visited and had those photos published widely."
"Gratuitous, deliberately provocative, spiteful, desperate, childish Rovian graphics"-Monday always catches me unawares, and I end up never getting my shopping or Photoshopping done on time.
But what the Hell,
So since that's the way Senator Clinton wants us to roll today, happy "Gratuitous, deliberately provocative, spiteful, desperate, childish Rovian graphics"-Monday everybody!
