Здравствуйте, друзья мои. Waiting on some work to flow in, and trying to come up with an angle on the drama-trauma on the Hill. I’ll save my thoughts for that piece, but I will say that I’ve been reminded — once again — how much we hate those poopyhead GOP and tea-tard conservatives, y’all. I mean God. Everyone who’s anyone hates those losers. I had forgotten, so it was nice of the White House to remind me.
Anyway, I’ll save my other thoughts for the piece I’m writing this afternoon save two points: 1. Boehner played his role perfectly. and 2. All of this. Because I just can’t help but think, had the focus not been on Obamacare for the last several months, many of these problems would have been quietly accepted and forgiven, and the news cycle would be relatively free of chatter regarding the premiums and deductibles and coding problems and error reports and political intent and Sebelius’ oversight etc. and et al…

Because it is going to be really difficult to watch football games, read stories and look at schedules and statistics and determine, “I think Team A is better than Team B.””
I knew about some of these but not all. And now I need to go back and find them. Any excuse to watch Han Solo/Indiana Jones is cool in my book.
I stole this from Facebook. It’s amazing.
-Would this make a good car for my daughter?
Hell. Yes. Not only a good car, a learning experience. Introduction to vehicular maintenance.
Additionally, there isn’t really enough room in the back for that little bastard she’s dating to try anything.
Here’s some morning music. I remember Isbell from the Drive-By Truckers days. He’s got some solid solo chops it seems…
