Watching the fabric of society and I suppose democracy, unravel is a scary thing. I have a question. “Where are those deep pockets of sanity in America, where people live “normally” and are immune to this apparent political madness?”
The wife and I would like to move there. Somewhere that is devoid of “political handlers” who feel they need to govern and control every damn aspect of my life.
The more I dig into all of this, the less I like it. Sarah Palin may not have known what the Bush Doctrine was, but we’re getting a pretty good idea of what the Palin Doctrine is. According to London‘s Daily Telegraph, the architects of the Palin Doctrine are a group of people who have been singularly wrong about virtually everything in the last decade — the neocons, who have been briefing Palin for weeks.
She’s perfect for the neocons: likable on the outside, a blank slate on the inside. They first fell in love with her in 2007, during a Weekly Standard-sponsored cruise. So nice to meet you, Governor. And don’t forget, Mai Tais and preemptive invasions on the Lido Deck at four!
More collateral damage: Today, McCain economic adviser Carly Fiorina bluntly stated that neither John McCain nor Sarah Palin were capable of running a major corporation (she said the same of Barack Obama and Joseph Biden). A top campaign adviser said Fiorina will be punished for her candid sentiments:
Don’t rattle the bars of the beast, it is not healthy.
“Carly will now disappear,” this source said. “Senator McCain was furious.” Asked to define “disappear,” this source said, adding that she would be off TV for a while – but remain at the Republican National Committee and keep her role as head of the party’s joint fundraising committee with the McCain campaign. Fiorina was booked for several TV interviews over the next few days, including one on CNN.
Those interviews have been canceled.
McSame says the economy is basically sound and there isn’t much to be concerned about. One more domino fell yesterday, and Wall Street Companies continue to fold like a cheap suits. Should the average person do anything differently in light of what’s happening on Wall Street right now? Should they try to pay off their credit cards now? Should they pull money out of stocks, put them into bonds? Should our day-to-day activities change?”
Well, I think you should pray a lot more.
Wednesday, Obammer the pessimist sees only the dark side of the cloud, and mopes; Soccer Mom a philospher sees both sides, shrugs; and McSame doesn’t see the clouds at all … He is too busy walking on them. Here it is, almost two weeks into the fray, and we are still grousing about lipstick and farm animals.
Yesterday I paid $83 for a tank of gasoline and it was ON SALE.

On the eve of our impending anniversary of six months of this particular written insanity (tomorrow is the anniversary for Creative Endeavors) we make this pledge. We will somehow endure when all of what we hold so dear is crumbling about us. Please take solace that we will continue our search to do nothing about anything, any time soon.
We are just like them … Except we don’t hold conventions.
Also, we pledge that we will never at any time soon or in the distant future, notify you that this site will be updated. It is our policy to never purge erroneous information that you just happen to like or seek out on a daily basis. We will instead give you even more inane tripe about good relations with your neighbors, the Republican/Democratic parties, with glaring misspellings or broken links when we feel like it. No part of our new site will ever contain “the latest news” about anything. Not even this pledge will be updated.
We cross our hearts and hope to die.
Change is about the only constant in the Universe. So, that being the case, we here at the new Information Capital of the Free World, felt it important for you to have a place where you could go to find exactly what you to expect to find – the same each, and everyday. No fancy databases or stock tickers, no bells and whistles,. Just our latest version of neglect on a profound scale and of course, “our sampling of the news” for you to consume.
So, bookmark this page. (Use the Ctrl+D key or something like that) and if conditions ever change, rest assured, we will not bother you with any kind of update. Visit this site often. No, not for updates. But rather, for a sense of safety and familiarity, and when you least expect it.
Wham! It will be much different.
No real news. But you can receive a semi literate Ann Landers-Paul Harvey-God Forbid-Geraldo style of journalism, or some other half-baked nitwit to help you thru your day. And it is all free … You simply cannot get a better deal that that.
Wednesday in a nut-shell.
