Out on the (Virtual) Town Tonight
Good evening, fellow travelers! It’s much too hot tonight in the Motor City to do anything but bask in air conditioned comfort and cruise around the Fashionable Left Bank of Blogistan. At least here at the Funny Farm, where we finally had to turn the A/C on when we got back from a Weekend at My Baby’s
in the wilds of Northern Ohio, it’s nice and cool. The outside temperature measured between 95 and 100 on the way home from work today. So something tells me that it would be a good idea to drop by a few of the old digs around Blogistan tonight.
Some of you in the Links Zone (and you know who you are) seem to be taking a bit of time off. For the summer, so to speak. But Josh
is back from vacation, and so is Digby
, over at Hullabaloo. And we haven’t really mentioned them too much. Which is a shame, because they are regular stops. And it’s a good thing, too. Digby writes a wonderful piece recommending that the Democratic candidates focus on blasting Drinky McCokehead instead of each other
. Are you listening, Mr. Dean
? Mr. Kerry
? We might need a bit of that Heinz fortune to combat The 200 Million Dollar Man
next year. Anybody else? By the way, Governor Dean, we might not agree on everything, but I think I have a much better chance of convincing you to look at my point of view than most others, particularly the entrenched Washington bureaucracy currently in power. And I think we need that. Mr. Kucinich is much closer to my heart and political beliefs. The Reverend, Ms. Braun, Mr. Gephardt, and many others make good points from time to time. But there is still too much sniping, and too little criticism of Tipsy McStagger
. He’s made enough mistakes to put together a TV miniseries on how to screw up a country. So, let’s all point out his gaffes, okay? Maybe you can fight over which one of you gets to hammer him about which mistake... There is going to be more than enough bitter pills to be crafted here for everyone to swallow. And more than enough seats at the table once you are able to sit there
. Maybe we should work on that first, hm?
And of course it would be remiss of us here at the Funny Farm if we didn’t point out that The ReachM High Cowboy Network Noose
brought us over to Digby’s place this time around. He writes a mean post, too, about an old friend of his who is now in the Middle East doing her part to help out the people who are suffering because The Unelected Sock Puppet
needs more oil for his Segway. Maybe he should get one of those remote starter thingys for it. That way it would already be on when he gets there next time.
It is also with great regret that I note the final (?) post for Joe Vecchio over at Pax Liberalis
. It sounds like things are going from mondo crappy
to hideously hopeless
over there. It’s too bad some deep pocketed Democrats aren’t able to put together a fund for these unfortunates blasted into poverty by the Usurper in Thief
. I’m sure that Joey would be useful in helping whoever wins the primary for the Democrats. Also, apparently in this case, it could quite possibly keep a family together. (cough cough FamilyValuesPublicRelationsCoup cough cough)
Any faith based organizations willing to help, perhaps? Or would those types of NGOs require that Joeve support their
beliefs and customs? It would be nice if this were more of a philosophical discussion, as opposed to personally being somewhat powerless to rectify the situation and crying into the Great Beyond, as it were...
Why don’t you take your own tour around the web? Go Torture Wolf Blitzer
. Check out the news behind the news. And have your wits about you. Only two days until all faithful Beagles respond to Master Neal
’s summons, and Appropriate the Savage Weiner Name for Our Own Purposes
Is everybody else scared yet?
