A Case of the Blahs.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:17 pm

Earlier today I had thought of a couple things that might be fun to write about. However, as I sit here, I realize that I just don’t feel very creative or interested in the least in trying to be creative. It seems that the news has overpowered my muse.

We have the story about the discovery of the head of fellow Garden Stater, Paul Johnson, in a terrorist’s freezer in Saudi Arabia.

Then there is the story about the insurgents murdering Islamic pigs taking six more hostages and threatening to behead them unless their employer ceases doing business with Americans in Iraq.

Finally, a person whom I consider to be very bright (and who is a liberal) said to me today, “The Sandy Berger thing is overblown. Besides, there was no harm done, as he only took copies of documents.” I farookin’ give up! If a Republican had done what Sandy Berger did, the press would be absolutely apoplectic. Maureen Dowd would be positively orgasmic. It would have been Abu Ghraib times ten.

My exhausted muse and I are headed for Mr. Recliner.

P.S. If someone is inclined to write a comment containing the Democrat Talking Points on the Sandy Berger story (i.e. It was inadvertent! It is Republican smear! Look at the timing!), please peddle your shit elsewhere. I’m not buying it.


  1. No, no Democratic Talking Points spewing here. I’m sitting here apoplectic (one of my favorite words!) in my copy of the recliner. Depressed about the state of things in NJ and the US in general. Thanks for summing it up so well.

  2. I don’t get how the timing of the release has anything to do with the actual crime itself. If the timing was deliberate, which I suppose it could be, then I would marvel that the Republicans actually rented a spine for the night. Since we all know that the Republicans aren’t about to stand up to anyone, though, we can pretty much rule that out.

    But like I said, what the hell does that matter?! So it was made public before the partisan bullshit report comes out. Whoopie do. So? The man took highly classified documents from the National Archives. That is what matters. There really should be no way to deflect that with any sort of stupid “timing” spin.

    I hate these people. Grrrrrr.

  3. Hang in there, gorgeous.

    FWIW, I know exactly how you feel.

  4. You know, the liberal press is a bigger problem than we realize. When I was a kid, spin = rotate. Enter the Democrats…now spin = lie. *%@$ ’em.

  5. Being bright and a liberal is a contradiction in terms.
