Alert: The Stooopid is breeding!

Watchers report sightings of bumperstickers promoting a Palin-Coulter ticket. Should you see one, be advised to observe from a reasonable position. Stay tuned.

Spooky odd...

Is it just me, or does Mitt's brother, Scott, bear a bit of resemblance to Rick Santorum?

Boomerang



Don't mess with old ladies. We may look sweet, but we've got decades of accumulated sneakiness.

Frack frack. Who's there?

We took today's fracking protest to the offices of the company that just got whacked by the state for their reckless drilling practices. The company, Ranchers Exploration, was not happy about the protest but kind of took the attitude of big deal, let 'em protest, who cares, whatever -- and then they closed up shop until Monday. So, we kinda sorta borrowed their sheltered porch by their front door to get out of the rain for a bit and let a couple of signs dry off.

It had been in the 80s until last night, today it was in the low 40s. Bit of a hefty transition, but we still managed a good turnout.

As I was unloading my walker and signs I was approached by a fellow who smiled and noted my many bumper stickers. "Y'know, my father fought and bled in World War II for the right to benefit from his own land." Oh, boy. Here we go. "You people have no idea what you're talking about." Actually, yes we do. "And you're such hypocrites! You hate oil, but you drove here in cars that need petroleum!" Dude, it's about an extraction process that is beyond hazardous. Go online, google Pavillion WY. "You people have no right to take my rights away!" As opposed to your right to make all of us sick? "You are so stupid!" Sigh.

He stomped off to bug a few more people, studiously avoiding the man I'd pointed out to him, the one who'd spent years researching this subject and had all kinds of documentation to provide. But before he left he talked to one of the reporters present and is quoted in one of the articles linked below.

We were pleased by the 85% positive driveby response, lots of honking and waving and thumbs up. We were especially delighted by the honks and waves from a city bus and several school buses leaving the nearby high school; a couple of the boys flipped us off, but most of those kids were smiling and waving.

And we FINALLY got some decent press coverage, although the Denver Post didn't show after they said they would (that kind of thing getting to be a habit for them).

Mitt Happens

Mitt Happens

Margaret, I just called my friend Patricia to apologize for dipping her hair into that inkwell back in grade school. I feel bad that I did it and I feel even worse that she no longer remembers who I am or that she one time had hair long enough to put in pig tails. We’re getting old, Margaret. And you know what else is getting old? The parade of schmucks who keep running for political office.

The population of the United States is now over 300 million people. That means that every four years, one person out of 300 million gets the honor of being President of the greatest country on the planet. With those odds, you would think the Republican Party could have found someone who wasn’t a dry drunk like George W. Bush… or the bully in high school like Mitt Romney. I know. I know. We all did dumb things when we were young. Youth. I miss it like I miss my waistline. Shit happens… or in this case Mitt happened. “Back in high school, I did some dumb things,” Romney said. “And if anyone was hurt by that or offended, obviously I apologize for that.” Me too. I really do feel bad about dipping Patricia’s hair into that ink well.

Lifestyle Choice

This teaparty weasel is speaker of the Colorado House, wherein the GOP holds a one-seat majority. Last night he chose to let the clock run out so that the members, who had already expressed approval of the civil unions measure, could not vote on it. So, it died. Along with it, about thirty other bills died, sacrificed to the teaparty's talibanish aspirations.
