“Inches from actual English”

Charles Pierce may be my new favorite political blogger.  After taking on Eddie Munster, he trained his sights on Rick Perry:

Added Rick Perry Bonus: I was watching the Frontline documentary on the appalling case of Cameron Todd Willingham, whom Perry put to death for murder by arson based on trash science not far removed from bleeding people with leeches. Apparently, toward the end, Willingham believed his wife had sold him out and, while in the death chamber, he told her that he fucking hoped she’d rot in hell, or something to that effect. Confronted with the fact that the best scientific evidence exonerated Willingham of the crime, and that he’d rigged an investigation into the case by firing some people and installing his cronies, Perry says to a gaggle of reporters that Willingham was a “bad man” because, at the end, he directed at his wife “an obscenity-laced triad.”

A triad.

Inches from actual English.

For. The. Win.

Maybe I’m just a divisive redistributing socialist but this take down is even better than the last one.  Best line:

(Let us pause briefly here to point out that anyone who takes Ayn Rand seriously at Paul Ryan’s age desperately needs to get out in the fresh air and sunshine more.)

Eric Cantor bails on his income inequality speech and Paul Ryan makes a fool out of himself delivering his.  Here’s a good take down of Ryan.

… or maybe a boost to his book or motivational speaker gigs and suddenly he’s in the top tier of 2012 GOP hopefuls polling at 37% in Iowa.  That’s why he hasn’t been trying that hard to actually win.

Who will be the first Republican presidential hopeful to agree with this guy?



I’m so lazy I’ve been sitting on this post for days

I guess this about sums it up.  I would add regret and relaunch between 7 and 8:

1) Euphoric moment of inspiration
2) Pseudo-maniacal and self-indulgent perusing of domains
3) Careful consideration of theme and design
4) The inaugural post – “Hello world!”
5) The 2-4 post honeymoon phase
6) Waning and changing interests
7) Feelings of desperation and apathy from low engagement

Inevitable abandonment

I’m not at abandonment.  Congested and back at it today.  And even tomorrow.
