Walking clusterf&^#, with a capital W

The long and short of why this guy is the Worst. President. Ever.
No justice means more pain.

J and Not So Silent Rollah wish you and your families a healthy, happy, safe and prosperous 2009!

a little closer to home

Finally, an easily-identifiable level of Highpocrisy on a topic I actually know something about.

sign of the times

A backup catcher for the Oakland A's, a guy who hit under .200 last year, can make half a MILLION dollars. A handful of Senators (!) -- each making six figures -- can toy with the fate of entire companies, affecting MILLIONS of U.S. workers and their families, for political reasons only! I can think of a lot of words other than HIGHpocrisy for how whacked this country is; most start with the same 4 letters.

Blago, please!

I may have borrowed from Bill Maher's Real-Time, but since he's off until February, I'm hoping he doesn't mind. I don't really have anything to contribute to this topic, I just like the title.

And when I wrote below about not having anything new to find in the world of hypocrisy? Of course, there is. There will always be material: 'wars', recession, civil rights, and those are the high-level items. We can't go too far too often, but we also have to make sure we don't blur the fine lines between hypocrisy, irony, and our ol' standby, cynicism. Like I said below, it's the holidays. Peace on Earth, good will toward man. And to all, a good night. And G-d bless us, everyone! Suck on that cup of cheer, Blago, you greedy, ignorant bastard.

not much new

I discovered that Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone, one of our favorite writers, started blogging in October. He has about 13 posts. So we have him beat by about 1 month, and many more articles. Of course, he gets paid for his blog. And he's really good. I've added to the list of followed blogs at bottom of the page. Not much has raised my ire enough to seek the hypocrisy... I must still be in post-Obama election space. Holidays are also a time for being more positive, hopeful, wishful, and we'll keep that going. I suppose I'll have to post about Wal-mart and the stampede soon.
