There’s a teeny light….

at the end of this tunnel. Maybe by the end of the week this black-hole of a project will release me from it’s grasp.

But for the moment, here’s a few tid-bits to nibble on…

Fred? Really?

He hasn’t dreamed of becoming president since he was in diapers and modeled his every step in life to take him close to the Presidency like Hillary Clinton.

The Anchoress points us to a glimpse of the President Bush we all know about, but the media is loathe to report on. Doesn’t fit “the template.”

But once in a while – more and more thanks to the internet – you get a glimpse. You get to remember that this president does not return in kind. He does not offer a hand to you only if you’re from the right party, and if you do him fealty.

That picture of Bush with Byrd reminds me that he is – in his own mind, if not in yours – the president of all the people, determined to serve your safety, your infrastructure, your economy and your future, even if you would rather he did not. Even if you wish he were dead. Even if you call him names. Even if you try to destroy his presidency and take him down. Even if you do all that from his own party and not from the “opposition” side.

This president will not return in kind. He hasn’t in six years, no matter how rude others have been.

Fausta must drink protein shakes or sumthin’, because she cranks out an amazing array of material each and every day. Must be part of the homework avoidance tactic. Yesterday, in the linked post she talked about Lileks, who is always hilarious. True to form, there was a McCoy Freakout Scale that rivals the FugGirls’ Celebrity Terror Watches and a conversation between Gradinko, the Greasy One-Armed Russian and the Happy Burger worker-through-the-speaker drive-thru boy. (Be sure to use your cheesiest Russian accent)

Hello, welcome to Happy Burger.

I want the hamburger.

One hamburger. Anything else?

I want it with cheese. And I want it hot.

Hold on . . . okay, that’s one cheeseburger. Anything else?

I want it in paper wrapper with two packets of ketchup. If there is anything else in the bag I will kill you.

So no fries?

(Pause) I will accept some fries. But only a small order. Ten fries, no more. If there are eleven fries the girl dies.

So that’s one cheeseburger one small fries. Anything to drink?

The tears of the enemies of Allah. No ice.

That’ll be $2.12. Please drive through.

I will meet you at the power plant in ten minutes.

Uh – the food comes out the window ahead, sir, and –

Ten minutes! No more! Or I will see about getting tacos.

Obi has sent a Hillary Joke for this week, but it is quite colorful. If I can tone it down a little, but not so much that you lose the real gist of the joke, I’ll post it tomorrow.

Siggy brilliantly writes about AhmahenaNutjob’s delusions, comparing him to Amon Goth, a slimey character from Schinder’s List. Gift? Gift?!?!? [Sniff!] I don’t think so.

Mahmoud Ahmadenijad’s ‘pardon’ and release of those 15 British sailors and marines is no more a gesture of Iran’s inherent ‘goodness’ than were Adolph Hitler’s displays of affection for his dog- and it is important that we understand that.

He closes with “The answers friends, aren’t to be found in the wind. The answers are in the mirror.”

And lastly, I am more than a little bummed. The Goracle Gas Bag, Inventor of the Internet and Personal Weathermaker to Zeus, is scheduled to speak at Georgia Tech in 2 weeks. Expect mounds of snow the next day. I’d requested two tickets, but just found out today I didn’t get them because sooooo many people requested tickets, they had to set up a lottery. Which meant, of course, only the ATL biggywiggys with their own stables of limos and private jets got tickets. Or maybe “those in charge” heard a vicious rumor that Obi and I were going to smuggle in some produce. Organic, only, of course.

Later.
