The husband’s younger brother keeps sending him articles by Glenn Beck.   If you’d like to feel stupider (or more stupid for you grammar Nazis), check this out.   An interesting fellow, the younger brother, and much too smart to read Beck.

WEATHER UPDATE: a gust of desperation wafting in from Camp McCain.  Really?  This is the path to the presidency?  Comparing an accomplished lawyer, law professor and legislator to a semi-talented and wealthy pop star who kissed Madonna and shaved her head is … oh I don’t know … what rhymes with pathetic?

UPDATE: I love that the Obama response references a Britney song.  Would have been better if they could have worked in “Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman.”

I keep hearing the word “presumptuous” as it relates to Obama’s recent trip to the Middle East and Europe.  The Huffington Post has a nice round up here.  So now it’s a bad thing for a candidate to go abroad, act like an adult, appear intelligent and competent and maintain bladder control.  What an asshole.

oh no you didn’t

So I look out my window at my front lawn–currently in a persistent non-vegetative state–and notice that my Obama lawn sign is gone.  To be precise, half of it is gone–the half with the actual sign and its internal metal support–and all I have left are two metal stakes in the heart of my al dente urban carpet.   Game on thieves.  Game on.

For the first time in three months I ran a full three miles.  All in one day.  All in a row.

At least those pesky ‘sconies spelled everything right.  It doesn’t always happen with vandals or protesters.

It’s ninety and humid and I totally want to punk out of my 3 mile run.
