No, it ain't pretty (or easy) being me

by northstar at 08:53 PM on September 25, 2004

I know; you think it's easy being me. Sure, you think...all I do is sit here in my underwear spewing forth with unassailable brilliance on matters from the political to the prosaic. Let me tell you, though, it ain't nearly as simple as y'all might think. Sometimes though, I have to blow off some steam. I'm pretty easygoing (just ask She Who Endures My Myriad Eccentricities), but I have my limits, just like anyone else.

Consider yourself warned, then. Time for me to take another mental dump...proceed at your own peril.

Mean people suck. Stupid mean people suck more. Stupid, mean, self-absorbed, arrogant, abusive, self-centered people who can't recognize that they are all of these things suck worst of all.

If I hear George W. Bush say one more time that John Kerry has said that our world would be safer with Saddam Hussein still in power, I'm going to throw up. Kerry has never said that, Bush knows it, and yet he keeps repeating the lie. Why? Because Bush has convinced himself that it is true, so he feels perfectly justified in spreading this lie. Why does he continue? Because it works. Most Americans, for reasons I cannot begin to understand, swallow this crap unquestioningly. Most Americans are fools.

Josef Goebbels was right. Repeat a lie often enough and with enough conviction and it eventually becomes the truth.

We should all be thanking whatever Deity we answer to that we are not Haitian.

Yeah, how much do think I miss Miami now??

If there is a God, Minnesota's John Santana will win the AL Cy Young Award this year.

"Better to fight terrorism in Iraq than here in the US" is not a political philosophy. It's a cop-out and a ignorant validation of George W. Bush's lies and miserable policy failure in Iraq.

John Kerry and George W. Bush. These are the best options we can come up with? If you look in the dictionary under "Empty Suit", you'll find a picture of both these non-entities.

Is it just me, or is Mean Girls merely a marketing vehicle for Lindsay Lohan's breasts? Is young, slutty, and barely legal now the latest trend? Or did I not get the memo?

Bud Selig is Satan.

Tom DeLay may be not BE Satan, but let's just say that he first in line in the order of succession.

Dan Rather thinks he's Satan, but the proof he had apparently couldn't be authenticated by an impartial expert on Evil.

Klingons are people, too...they just can't vote.

Jon Stewart for President. Why the hell not? At least there would be someone in the White House with a sense of humor and a grip on reality.

If you live in San Diego and just retired after working for the city, you might want to check the balance of your pension account- NOW.

If George W. Bush had devoted half as much resources to hunting Osama bin Laden as he did to capturing Saddam Hussein, would we still be wondering where he is? And when is the last time you even heard Bush talk about bin Laden- or even mention his name?

Can we PLEASE lock Gary Bettman and Bob Goodenow in a hot, airless room and refuse to let them out until the end this damn NHL lockout?

This week's sign that the Apocalypse is upon us...from an ad on ABC: "Wifeswap raises the bar in reality television...." Sorry, y'all, but the bar has been set so low you'd need a map, a metal detector, and a shovel to find it.

Vote Bush, or the terrorists will win!

OK, now that I've managed to get all that off my chest, I can get back to what REALLY has me occupied today: wondering what the "October Surprise" will be....

How about a September Surprise? Our government snatches one of our fellow citizens off a foreign battlefield, throws him in solitary confinement for years, charges him with nothing, denies him access to counsel or any semblance of due process, leaves him in a Kafkaesque legal black hole and relents only when rebuffed by its own Supreme Court. Then it shrugs and says, "Oh never mind, this guy isn't that important to us. Go on home and don't forget to pick up your parting gifts on the way out." Oh wait, that already happened. Heh-heh.

On a more serious note in RE: Ms. Lohan's jugs. She caught hell for characterizing the endless fake vs. real debate about them as "so retarded." Never mind that this is the idiom of her generation. She's since changed the adjective to "stupid." Hmmm.

I'm down with the twins on Lindsay Lohan's chest, but this may be because she just comes off as a young person who is frankly wearing what a lot of young girls are wearing today. (I guess you did miss the memo :) ) There doesn't seem to be an agenda with her clothing, unlike with Britney Spears, who flips from "slut" to "pure" and back whenever she starts fading off the public radar.

I agree that the Wifeswap ads are annoying. Where are all the supposed accolades for that show coming from?

Northstar, I feel your pain.

I can't even fathom, with the number of things Bush has done wrong, how Kerry could have a hard time beating him... But you're right. Kerry is an empty suit too.

October Surprise : Osama Bin Laden is found and detained by US forces

by Ezy at September 27, 2004 1:26 PM

Detained? And then what?

by anna at September 27, 2004 6:13 PM

This is my guess on the "October Surprise" - On November 1st, after nothing as happened, the conspiracy asshats will never mention the phrase "October Surprise" again.

What great timing! A reminder, if anyone forgot, that Saddam is a baby-killer! Good thing we removed him to free the Iraqis! Isn't that why we went in??

by Linz at October 13, 2004 11:16 AM

Yea Linz, I think it was to free the Iraqis and their babies. Isn't that what happened? It's all so fuzzy now.

If ya'll remember back to when we got into really heated discussions about whether or not we should go into Iraq, and before the "mission [was] accomplished," I always used that as my main reason for supporting going into Iraq.
