Morning Seditionists

Thursday

It should be pretty clear to just about everybody that Scott Brown has absolutely nothing to run on in the fight to keep his Senate seat in Massachusetts, because the only thing he and his team seem to have been able to come up with is that Elizabeth Warren once checked a box somewhere that said she had some Native American DNA in her. It’s become the central point (the only point, really) of his campaign. This was evidenced in their debate the other night, when Warren said she wanted to fight for the rights of ordinary citizens, and Snotty Scotty said, “she don’t look like no injun to me.”

So, by now, I’m sure everybody’s seen the YouTube video of a cheerful though slightly less than Mensa quality young woman registering voters in Colorado. She’s working for the County Clerk (she “thinks”), but is “to be honest” only really interested in registering Romney voters. Now, whether this is some diabolical scheme from the County Republicans, or just some twit who got her marching orders a little mixed up, I don’t know. But given the voter suppression efforts around the country by the Republicans, it’s pretty hard to give them the benefit of the doubt on much of anything.

Happy Punctuation Day

September 24th is National Punctuation Day. Who thinks this shit up? I’m not sure if you’re supposed to honor punctuation on this day, or just try and keep your comma splices to a minimum. Any way, enjoy the day, because without punctuation, there would be nothing but anarchy.

So, on the way home last night, I was listening to NPR, and they were doing a story about how Romney came out and said half the country is a bunch of lazy moochers who suck. And, in typical NPR fashion, they said that the reaction in Florida (where said comments were secretly recorded) was “mixed.” As evidence of this, they went to a senior community and interviewed two people – one on each side (so as to remain “fair” I suppose). The pro-Romney guy sounded nice enough. Some kind of retired minister who was over 65, and got Social Security and Medicare, and of course pays no federal income tax. His comments? “Oh, he’s not talking about us.” Yeah, he is, dude. Wake the fuck up. How can people be so goddamned stupid? When people accidentally get caught telling the truth for once, you really need to pay attention to them.

Good Morning, Losers

Yes, you. I’m talking to the 47% of Americans who just want to collect their welfare checks and eat bon-bons on the couch while watching Jerry Springer Oprah Winfrey Katie Couric on the teevee. At least, according to Mitt Romney.

After another very long week, it’s finally Friday. And now there’s a new way to kill the day at work. In case you haven’t heard, the Kevin Bacon six degrees of separation game has now made its way into Google. Just type in “bacon number” and then an actor’s name, and you get the bacon number, and how they came up with it. This may sound silly but, trust me, it’s addictive. And you’ll be pretty hard-pressed to get a number higher than three. And believe me, I tried.

Hard to believe it’s been 11 years since, well, you know. I don’t know why it’s so hard, seeing as they made such a big deal about the 10th anniversary last year, but it is. As I recall, that day was a Tuesday as well (primary day in NY, which was more or less cancelled). This year, they have decided that no elected officials (hopefully that includes former elected officials and candidates, too) will be allowed to speak at the 9/11 memorial (or whatever they call it) in NYC. That’s probably the single best idea I’ve heard in years.

Well, I hope everyone survived the weekend and the wild and whacky weather we had in the Northeast on Saturday. They predicted all kinds of nasty stuff for us, but at my house we didn’t get much more than some wind and rain. Not that I’m complaining. There were even a couple of tornadoes down in Queens and Brooklyn, so I hope everybody down that way didn’t suffer any major damage. The SU-USC football game (which, sadly, we lost after making a game of it into the fourth quarter, and did more to beat ourselves than SC did) had a 70 minute delay between halves due to a threat of severe weather.
