I'm in a bad mood, and it shows

Still trying to get my head around the idea of Obama receiving a Nobel Peace Prize; from what I can glean from his supporters (who all seem to be reeling in a group orgasm right now), is that he did not get it for his accomplishments, but for the great job he did talking about what he was going to do. Remember that the nomination had to have been sent within a few days of his coronation inauguration, while he was still spending most of his time patting himself on the back and getting his ass gang-kissed by the media . If talking a good game is all it takes, then he should be sharing the prize with his teleprompter.


Does anyone really give a rat's ass about Letterman's flings? I'm getting tired of seeing his name any time I look at the news. Almost as tired as seeing Jon and Kate, whoever the hell they are. If I want to see stuff like that, I'll start watching soap operas.


Two years and nine months ago we got tired of the way the Republicans were running Congress, and gave a bunch of them the boot, replacing them with Democrats. Looking at things now, I can't see where there is any difference between that bunch of crooks, and the bunch now. Anyone see any improvements? We still have politicians being bought and sold, still lying to us, still wasting time on bullshit while real problems go unresolved. Anyone else starting to feel that tar and feathers might be a good investment?


Any favorites in this bunch?

Haven't heard this in a long time. Used to be able to play it on the trumpet.

I've got that one coming up as evening listening.

Ah, I misled you - not this evening but Tuesday.

Hell, I'll promise to bring world peace too, if that's all it takes to get a million-plus award prize.

Oh wait, I'm not a minority socialist who wants us to be as useless as most of the EU.

So much for that dream.

You've got every right to be in a bad mood.

Sloop John B - The Beach Boys. That brings back memories!
