Would nature be beautiful if we were not here to see it?

"When you went to work... everyone else on the block was doing the same thing"


There was a line about Romney's ideal America where, apparently, "when you went to work in the morning, everyone else was doing the same thing."

Yes they were, Mitt... They were all looking out their windows saying, "There goes that asshole Mitt Romney, off to work."

Because for most people, work involves actually doing jobs, instead of firing people who are doing them, for the sole purpose of enriching yourself at their expense.

When do we get Ann's favorite tuna and pasta recipes?


What say you:

Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip?

Butter or margarine?

And, why was Jeb Bush on about milk?

So, did anyone on FOX notice Romney's snub of our troops

FOX didnt think our gymnasts were patriotic enough. Did anyone in that wasteland at all notice the utter absence of so much of an acknowledgment of our young men and women serving in Afghanistan?

They should have booked crazy "He's an Arab" lady

Black Rock City: Eastwood Back At Burning Man After Brief Absence

First an empty chair, then an empty suit

And if they get elected, they'll empty all our pockets.

We were watching Season 2 of Kung Fu


...Because the 1973 Kung Fu series is on DVD and, boy does it take you back. Snatch the pebbles from my hand, Grasshopper...

So, anyway, we're about halfway through season 2 and we figured it was a good night to make some more progress.

I had to flip the disc over, and in the brief moment my player turned off and the hdmi switched the TV back to MSNBC, we got Mitt Romney in 1080i HD with a soundbar and a wireless subwoofer going:

"God bless Neil Armstrong!"

And then the DVD player switch back on and there was David Carradine walking through the desert near Yuma, Arizona with the sun rising behind him.

And we just looked at each other and said "God bless Neil Armstrong?"

Oh well. Neil's probably a Mormon already. I'll bet they proxy baptized him on a priority basis.

Did anyone at the RNC mention, oh, a WAR in Afghanistan?


The way these folks change their pretended priorities is a hoot.

Last time it was "COUNTRY FIRST!"

This time it is "WE BUILT THAT!" - which strikes me as a reformulated "I GOT MINE!"

But last time we had Truck Palin going off to Iraq, Cindy McCain getting a cold chill down her spine about the Pentagon budget and how important it is for the nominee to be a war hero.

This time, not even the ritual "...and God bless our troops" recitation at the ends of the speeches.

Now, sure, Sarah Palin was going on about the "white flag of surrender" in Iraq, from which we have withdrawn regular combat troops, but did Afghanistan just slip their mind, or is war just not a big deal with them now?
