Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Sometimes, there’s stupidity so deep you can’t wade in. You can’t dabble your toes while you get used to the temperature, because there’s no getting used to it. All you can do is take a deep breath, hold it, and dive headfirst into the deep end. Jim DeMint’s stupidity …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. I am, once again, suffering an embarrassment of riches. You’d think Cons didn’t have anything better to do all day than sit around and think up new ways to be egregiously stupid. I guess that’s what the lobbyists pay them for. And they’re certainly attempting to earn their pay …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Cat on lap etc. Awkward typing position etc. Blame typos on cat etc. etc…. I think that shall have to go without saying from now on, because she has come to believe Happy Hour is her hour. If food were as abundant as Con stupidity, I could feed all …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Once again, I am reduced to typing Happy Hour in a dreadfully awkward position due to the fact that my feline believes cats, not laptops, belong in laps. I shall have to get a remote-controlled mousie as a diversion. We shall do our best. Circus acts generally begin with …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. I think we shall begin today by bashing media assclowns. Folks, there’s a reason I don’t watch teevee news shows, not even supposedly uber-librul MSNBC. It’s because, salted in between the numbing mindless drivel, you get things like Pat Buchanan advocating murder: Earlier today, conservative pundit Pat Buchanan suggested …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Another day, another reason I’m utterly disgusted with the Cons: The New York Times reported last night that the CIA, following direct orders from Dick Cheney, “withheld information about a secret counterterrorism program from Congress for eight years.” CIA Director Leon Panetta has scrapped the program, but the decision …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. I’m writing this from an unbelievably contorted position whilst deprived of nicotine and starving to death. Yup. The cat’s in a cuddly mood. I shall do my best despite the circumstances, but all complaints about typos should be referred to my feline. Why, yes, I could move her before …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. You know that rule about how when you’ve invoked Godwin’s Law, you’ve lost the argument? Well, DeMint lost all arguments a long time ago, but now it’s official: Far-right lawmakers seem to realize that it’s probably going to cost them if they compare Democratic leaders to Nazis, so they’ve …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Apologies to anyone who was breathlessly anticipating today’s post. I got distracted with cooking and then unleashing the Smack-o-Matic upon Faux News host Brian Kilmeade. I’ll have to get back to posting Happy Hour during lunch – once my lost badge is replaced in 3-6 weeks. Grr. Argh. We’re …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. You know what? I give up. The Con party is full of too many hopeless nutcases right now for me to believe some breath of sanity may return to our political discourse. You find the occasional sane Republican trapped in the psychotic rabble like a lonely xenolith, but they’re …
