H/T ESPN after the Mets/Nats game which is the only reason it was on.

Promising apocalyptic ruin, sending your little bro to break some fucking windows in Russia.  C’est la vie.

Oh well, just means I get to torture Veeshir with more 80s music for a while longer.  You know, events like this require some reflection on the important things in life, fundamental questions, like whether you like The Bangles, the Go-Go’s or Bananarama best.

Honestly, it’s tough to pick one as a favorite.

So I’m watching live TV, which I pretty much never do but there’s no TiVo where I’m staying. Anyway, I’m confused by the political ads – am I supposed to hate Romney because he wants to overturn Roe v. Wade and get rid of Planned Parenthood, or am I supposed to hate him because he used to be pro-choice?  And why are we still being told to vote with our ladyparts?  Either a woman is too young to have enough sense to vote against Obama, or she’s too old and dried up to care about voting with her ladyparts.  (I’m firmly in the latter camp, so don’t go getting any ideas.)

Why is this zombie primarily trying to eat minorities?  I would think the least likely place to get shot pulling this sort of prank is in a young white liberal neighborhood.  Doesn’t Miami have any of those?  Am I being racist even suggesting that?

…I was just wondering–How much does a gallon of gas cost in your neck of the woods these days?

Hope you’ve got some change left over for that mortgage payment.

Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, writing on “The Official Blog of the U.S. Department of Labor” (a thing that exists, apparently) is proud of what the Obama administration has, um, accomplished

Without the Recovery Act, millions more would have fallen into poverty. Our efforts to expand unemployment insurance provided $167 billion in benefits to 17 million Americans. It’s the longest-lasting emergency unemployment program in American history. The Recovery Act provided incentives for states to expand UI coverage to part-time workers and new workers. This kept 3.2 million Americans from falling into poverty last year.

Um, it’s nice and all that the people who are getting unemployment checks aren’t starving out in the streets, but don’t you see any teensy little problems with bragging about the fact that you’ve actually had to implement “the longest-lasting emergency unemployment program in American history” while simultaneously talking about how awesome the Spendulus was? Like, I don’t know, that it might be an indication that the stuff you guys are doing hasn’t done jack shit to improve the economy? That a whole lot of people collecting unemployment indefinitely shouldn’t really be something to be happy about? Bueller?

I’m really not sure why I’m asking any of these questions since Solis begins her post by gushing about (and I’m not kidding here) LBJ’s “War on Poverty” programs. Yeah.

I wasn’t watching Zero’s speech, as I had actual productive things to do, but Teh Hubby was (no comment on what that means about his to-do list…) and he said that it was an all-hands sort of thing.  Gabe said he’s sure someone wasn’t there – but the question is, which minor bureaucrat could have been the next POTUS?

Oh wait, Vinty was nice enough to hunt down the answer for me, since I just realized I haven’t adjusted my Fantasy Football lineups and that’s more important than the words coming out of Teh Won’s mouth.  Arne Duncan would have been the lucky winner. Oh heavens.  In a race between Duncan and Zero, I’d be hard pressed to pick who’s worse…

Why is CNN worried about Dominionism but not about Sharia law?

So Teh Hubby and I were talking about the Exposed Weiner.  Teh Hubby said that he’d never do something like that, because he knows how to use direct messaging on Twitter.  Should I be concerned?
