Squinting Through the Debate

Tags: 

I've been having some trouble with my eyes lately. Sometimes, if I close them, I can't see anything. And that almost happened tonight, but I didn't close them all the way: I closed them just enough to make the Democratic candidates for President look like one really big candidate with different voices. Kind of like an obese Robin Williams. Read below the fold...

Pray For Rain in Georgia

Things are so dry down south it's time to invoke the Weather God. Such thoughts opened up my Rhyming Cumulus--soon thereafter I felt some lyrics falling, falling on me...

Pray For Rain in Georgia

she stood upon the ferry bridge
she raised her hands to the sky
help her son make it through the night
across the world so wide

he raised his eyes up to heaven

Dark Tidings on the Los Angeles River

There's something rather Jawaesque about copper wiring being stolen from the L.A. River Bike Path.

Russert & Matthews & Kurtz, Oh My!

This ad hominem attack on Three Nasty Piss Pots goes well with the melody from Eric Idle's Money Song.

A day late for Guy Fawkes' Day but here it is nevertheless...

Dismember, dismember the filth in the embers
The Straussian seizing of thought
I know of no easing
Of Straussian seizing

Mr. Giuliani has a habit of saying things, on issues that range from health care to national security, that are demonstrably untrue.
