Bracket Buster Butler … and Sarah P Still Pisses Me Off!

Wow!  So far as I can tell, in our bracket only ddymski had Butler moving to the Elite Eight.  Don, how’d you know?

ddymski and reades sit in second place – 23 points behind POTUS (who is having a nice run in his day job, too)!

As I look at the brackets, though, it appears that a whole lot can change … and fast … in the coming days.  Stay tuned!

On the political front, I see that John McCain’s lust for hanging on to power has entirely obliterated the illusion of his having any kind of core, maverick-type values … as he reunites with the monster he created in 2008!  Now SarahPAC stands behind him … how inspiring!  Not a whole lot on the SarahPAC site – just a big button for info about the Divine Ms. P – and a big button to DONATE!  Here’s what SarahPAC is raising money for today:

Support Governor Palin’s PAC by Donating Below:

Don’t Get Demoralized! Get Organized! Take Back the 20!

Help us reclaim the power of the people from those who disregarded the will of the people. We’re going to fire them and send them back to the private sector, which has been shrinking thanks to their destructive government-growing policies.

Help us by donating $5 for each of the 20 House Democrats, in districts that were carried by McCain/Palin in 2008, that voted for the health care bill on Sunday.

Yep, Sarah – thanks for cluing us in about “the will of the people.”  Oh, and those gun sights graphics … nice, Sarah, nice.  And here’s Sarah’s Twitter page.  Way too busy if you ask me, Sarah.  Makes it look like it’s all about you and your book tour.  Oops – I thought it was about the American people … their will … how it’s being trampled … you know, all that stuff.  Remember?  Not about you, Sarah.  Maybe try writing it 100 times.

It’s interesting to look at Obama on Twitter, compared to Sarah … and think about the “will of the people.”  Of course I realize that neither of them probably actually LOOKS at their feeds … but stilll it’s instructive that Obama and his staff obviously think that listening to the people is somewhat important … as reflected in the fact that they follow upwards of 733,000 people’s tweets.  Sarah-who-speaks-for-the-will-of-the-American-people?  She’s following a grand total of 67 people.  Yup – 67!  Tell me again how it’s not all about you, Sarah?

Meanwhile, the “Yes We Can” crew just passed some more meaningful legislation … a major overhaul of the college loan system that flew in under the radar.  Lamar Alexander is in a huff … getting lots of money from the banks are you, Lamar?  Or is it just that you don’t like broadening access to education?  Scary, ain’t it?  And it’s not a government take-over … it’s the “riff-raff” that you’re worried about – be honest now, Lamar.

I keep thinking about how Obama has been in office … how long?  A bit over a year.  Look at what has been accomplished.  Not what some of us may have hoped … but no wonder the GOP and the tea baggers have their knickers all in a twist.

Come to think of it, I am currently glad that Dick Cheney is still alive … only because this has all just got to be torture for him.  Breathe on, Dick, breathe on!

    Can you believe I’m still considering switching my registration to Republican just so I can vote FOR McCain in the primary? Not surprisingly, I’m concurrently weighing the difference between “disaster” and “unmitigated disaster,” and wondering if it is indeed as exponential as I suspect. As in, even Walnuts would be better than complete batshit fucking insane JD Hayworth.



So, what do you think?
