Another must-read piece from the bearded prophet.

My wife left me a voicemail of my snoring last night.
Maybe I should look into taking care of this.

I know you Freeway bloggers will appreciate this!
We all, myself included, need to be doing more stuff like this!
The businessman at the end is priceless! He's so upset, as if he can actually hear the neighborhood, and his property value, going south on him. Hilarious.
Thanks to Pat Lavalle for directing this gem my way and cheers to Donny Miller!
Blogging was much easier when the war criminals were in charge.
It's up to you guys to fill the comment box with witty chatter.

It’s comforting to believe that Obama’s electoral victory meant that most Americans finally wised up and embraced liberalism again. But I’m thinking a huge chunk of people who voted for Obama could easily fall back into right-wing idiocy if a light breeze blew them that way.

Still a bit groggy from a wild weekend in So Cal. Normal blogging to return soon.
Friday, March 20, 2009
I’m heading down to So Cal to hang out with Adjective, Underhill, and other friends I haven’t seen in years.
Have a good weekend!

And the winner is....(drum roll please)
...with today's zinger regarding "favorite drum albums"! (See post below)
"I'll stay out of the internecine squabbling about what constitutes a good drum album... but I'd have to say the cover art would probably have been turned down by Soft Cell for being too gay".
Since I have nothing to add to the AIG debacle, I’m gonna throw down my favorite drum album.
Suck on that, bitches.

I’m afraid Mr. Cheney and the rest of the criminals will ride into sunsets of pampered luxury. The evidence that the administration violated international law is overwhelming, and in a functioning democracy a trial for war crimes would be inevitable. However, Watergate and the Iran Contra experiences set the terrible precedents of pardoning high officials who commit high crimes, all in the name of "national healing." Accordingly, Obama says he’s inclined to turn the page and focus on the future -- as if bringing individuals to trial under the face of such massive evidence is a choice.

I think this is pretty much my favorite guitar album, and it is definitely in my top five albums of all time.

"Bristol even told him that she hates him (Levi Johnston) and, when she learned she was pregnant, wished the baby wasn't his".
-- from RadarOnline.com
Say it ain't so, Bristol! You and hunky Levi Johnston already on the outs? But...,but...,but...,girl, you crazy!
Yet another hit for Governor Palin and the Republicans, who have so pompously touted themselves as a paradigm of family values! The facade continues to crumble for the GOP as I sit and laugh smugly.
I smell a Lifetime mini-series.

We should all pray that the Obama team knows something that Paul Krugman doesn’t.

Sorry, y’all, I got nothing.
What do you want to talk about?

A late night wild hair brings you 45 Grave, introduced here by the late Peter Ivers on the New Wave Theater, 1981.

Fire Geithner and replace him with Paul Krugman. Seriously.
Obama’s belief in the wisdom of the very people who got us into this mess is very troubling.

You guys may have already seen this, but in case you haven’t.
In other news, the ax fell in my office yesterday, and once again I escaped its terrible toll. A handful of people in our California offices were let go due to weak backlog. I hate this shit. The fear in my office is palpable, and when HR shows up, as they did yesterday morning, the fear turns to panic. "Who’s it gonna be?" I started looking around my workspace, mentally packing up my personal stuff.
A large part of the fear is thinking about the indignity of the actual layoff -- the embarrassment. "Well, it’s been nice working with you guys."
I can breathe a sigh of relief for now, but I’m pretty sure there’s a list. And if there is, you can bet I’m on it -- hopefully not too close to the top, or the bottom, or wherever the fuck they start.

Indeed, they are.
On a minor related note, why are Democrats compelled to preface all their criticism of Bobby Jindal with a statement of how brilliant he is?
