Get Angrier!

- from Aaron Sorkin and Maureen Dowd
GET ANGRIER! Call them liars, because that’s what they are. Sarah Palin didn’t say “thanks but no thanks” to the Bridge to Nowhere. She just said “Thanks.” You were raised by a single mother on food stamps — where does a guy with eight houses who was legacied into Annapolis get off calling you an elitist? And by the way, if you do nothing else, take that word back. Elite is a good word, it means well above average. I’d ask them what their problem is with excellence. While you’re at it, I want the word “patriot” back. McCain can say that the transcendent issue of our time is the spread of Islamic fanaticism or he can choose a running mate who doesn’t know the Bush doctrine from the Monroe Doctrine, but he can’t do both at the same time and call it patriotic. They have to lie — the truth isn’t their friend right now. Get angry. Mock them mercilessly; they’ve earned it. McCain decried agents of intolerance, then chose a running mate who had to ask if she was allowed to ban books from a public library. It’s not bad enough she thinks the planet Earth was created in six days 6,000 years ago complete with a man, a woman and a talking snake, she wants schools to teach the rest of our kids to deny geology, anthropology, archaeology and common sense too? It’s not bad enough she’s forcing her own daughter into a loveless marriage to a teenage hood, she wants the rest of us to guide our daughters in that direction too? It’s not enough that a woman shouldn’t have the right to choose, it should be the law of the land that she has to carry and deliver her rapist’s baby too? I don’t know whether or not Governor Palin has the tenacity of a pit bull, but I know for sure she’s got the qualifications of one. And you’re worried about seeming angry? You could eat their lunch, make them cry and tell their mamas about it and God himself would call it restrained. There are times when you are simply required to be impolite. There are times when condescension is called for!

My Week

1. Some lady with some yappy little dog yelled at me this morning because my dogs wandered within 20 yards of hers, on the open beach, thus disallowing her dog to do his "business". I told her that if her dog attacks other dogs, then she needs to find another place to let her dog shit since the beach is open and free space for dogs to run. Then I made sure she had a plastic bag since I don't want that mess on my beach.
2. Larry Craig gave his farewell speech on the Senate floor the other day...finally. Apparently the the chamber was just about empty. What a disgrace he is to the institution, his state and to the country, although it did make for some entertaining videos!
3. Joe Biden hands down beat Sarah Six-Pack in the debate the other evening. Does she ever answer a fucking question that's asked of her?! In addition, I am "oh so happy" that she'll tolerate me. She's scary...and a bitch. *wink* The game was fun though!
4. This smell was coming from my foyer this past weekend. After thinking someone tracked in some 'debris' on their shoes, I did some investigating and discovered that some people are just pure trash. In a glass vase by the front door, someone had apparently yakked. Disgusting.

The sun is shining and its a beautiful day :)

My Little Friend

Morning after morning at 6am, I would put the leads on the dogs getting them ready to go on their beach run. And morning after morning, I would search for Jeb's Chuck-it - if you have a dog, you know what that is. The Chuck-it was never on the top rail of the wooden fence under the grape arbor where I left it the day before. So each morning, I would pick the Chuck-it up off the ground and march off to the beach. Last night, Kiana, my female husky was sitting quietly on the patio staring up at the grape arbor, ears perked and head cocked. After taking a few steps back to get the same view, I noticed that two little eyes were staring back at Kiana...and now glaring at me. He comes back every night to eat the grapes on my arbor - Concord grapes that is. I just hope he's getting enough of all four food groups.
