Yup … one of the 3 Blitzen Babes has a birthday today (as does SirHitsAlot’s dad). It’s a special day … and we wish them both a wonderful year!
Down in AZ, I see that Jan Brewer is standing tall against the forces of sanity … a familiar scenerio across the country, as the crazy GOP base is frighteningly energized. There are plenty of words for this in the DSM IV, if anyone cares to check. Take a look at this bizarre video, in which Brewer refuses to recant her statements about headless bodies in the Arizona desert …
Honestly, if you watch the whole thing, I find it equally disturbing that the TV station has kindly divided the entire debate into 5-minute chunks, arranged by subject … so that no one’s attention span is tested too mightily (and no one is exposed to a thought or idea that he or she hadn’t been intending to hear).
On TPM I read that Elizabeth Warren won’t be teaching at Harvard this fall. Hope that means what I think it means. And although TPM warns about counting chickens … that sort of level-headedness never stops me!
I have finally removed Huffington Post, sadly, from my blogroll. Too much Lindsay Lohan and too many slide shows of the 10-best-whatever’s. As I head into fall, I am realizing that, as easily distracted as I can be by the question of whether or not Ashton cheated on Demi, I really don’t need to be pulled in that direction. So, enough, already. It’s back to Politico and TPM and AlterNet for yours truly.
There – I feel better!
Speaking of feeling better … nicely done, Mr. Utley. A grand slam … 6 RBI’s … now THAT’S what we like to see!
Have a great day … and I leave you with this … in honor of current weather events …
