You know, once in a while, I think I've seen it all. That there is nothing in this whole wide world that can make me wonder at the strangeness that is the human race.

Then, someone points me at something like Hats of Meat, and I realize that I am SOOOOOOO wrong.

So terribly, terribly wrong.


So - is anyone other than Dubya surprised that some of his picks for Cabinet appointments are being seriously challenged? When was the last time ANY president's Cabinet picks were all quietly given the key to the executive washroom? Lincoln?

And in the current state of partisan politics, it's going to take a lot more than Dubya swearing that all Democrats will really, really like him for them lie down quietly and have his way.

In all the furor over John Ashcroft's nomination, has anyone else wondered why? I mean, this guy has been in Missouri politics for a long time. He was a senator from that very conservative state. He was an attorney general. Yet, he couldn't muster up enough support to beat a dead man. Yes, a corpse managed to beat Ashcroft out for the office of Governor. Doesn't that fill you with respect for the man?


Well, Dubya (or your puppetmasters, I haven't quite decided whether you're a bald-faced liar or merely a puppet controlled by people who figure if they make you say it, THEY aren't really lying), I will pay attention to your abortion argument ("we must ban all abortions because all human life is sacred and must be protected") as soon as you abolish capital punishment. Doesn't matter which way you go, but you can't say that human life is sacred and must be protected if you're our strapping people down for lethal injections. That's called "hypocrisy". Look it up, they should have dictionaries all over the White House for you. A hypocritical argument is not worth listening to.


I just finally watched Fight Club (yeah, I know, I get way behind on my movies). Wow. I can almost respect Brad Pitt now. Ed Norton, no question. But I might actually have to go see Snatch before it leaves the theatre.
