I've been in quite the funk this week. Not a lot going on to make me down, but there you go. I've eaten a whole bag of Cherry Cordial Hershey's Kisses all by myself, hiding them from the other folks in the house. And I'm feeling rather good about it. The weather outside is frightful, just as the song says, but inside isn't all that delightful. It's cold, the ceiling in our downstairs bathroom is leaking through the light fixture, there's not a glimmer of sunshine peeking in the windows, and even the cat has taken to the Boy's bed and won't come downstairs.
Ellen lost by a hair, and I'm sort of down about that because it proves once again that the Weblog Awards are tilted towards the conservative blogger. Maybe next year the liberals can make a dent. We just all need to band together and nominate the liberal blogs and vote, vote, vote.
I saw Condi Rice this morning on the Today show, and not only did this reinforce my belief that morning television is horrible, but also that she's the sleeziest, slimiest, most two-faced cretin representing women in power. I hate her. She sat up there and defended Shrub's policy on allowing the National Security Administration (NSA) to eavesdrop on the phone converstations and private consersations of ordinary Americans all in the guise of national security. Not only is this unconstitutional, but the NSA is an international agency and is supposed to be spying on our enemies overseas. She went on to defend the US policy of torturing the detainees, like that's an OK thing, and didn't have an reason why it took John McCain to get Shrub to admit to torture and to say it's "bad". Only took how many years? Everytime I think this government has stooped to new lows, they surprise me by going even lower.
Mitt Romney, the flash-in-the-pan Governor of Massachusetts has bowed out of a second termn run. He claims he's done everything he set out to do for the state in his initial term, but the truth is, this was just a stepping stone job in his bid for the presidency. He's handsome, he's tall, and he's a complete pig. You want to know what he did for MA in this first term? Well, he totally decimated the social service of this state. He took from the poor, in food, in shelter, in housing, in social services, in family services, in the court system, and in anything else he could think of. He took and took and took from all the services that help the homeless, the powerless, the children, the elderly, and the poor, and then he decided to leave town. He's going to be a perfect candidate for the Republican Party. If only he weren't Mormon, he'd be running right now.
Going to be making peppermint bark this afternoon. Maybe that will cheer me up. Stumble It! JBlog Me
