Trying To Get Some Traction

It did not rain yesterday, but I was definitely stuck. My wheels spun and I didn't go anywhere. It was one of those days when there were a half-dozen or more competing themes running through my mind, and I could catch up with a single one. Like trying to herd cats or baby pigs.

The mainline news services seem to have retreated into dullsville, maybe actually scared they're going to get busted if they say anything relevant. The big news story seemed to be the thuggish vote in the House of (un)Representatives about maintaining the war. Of course, it was presented to us like a serious piece of legislation, rather than waving around a big stick. Rove'st strategy, like that of A. Hitler, still works: accuse those who disagree of disloyalty and make vague but quite reasonable threats. Actually, I don't think Rove has to make many threats: most of the reps, from both sides of the aisle, are too busy counting their donations to give a shit about the moral problems provided by a criminal war against a foreign nation.

On the other hand, the Washington Post, always there to keep us informed, let us know that a new NBC series about a bunch of narcissists looking for a buried treasure is, indeed, a dud. Great.
