Let Us Begin

All this- all the South Park and Godfather references, the unattributed PJ O'Rourke quotations, the blatantly obvious House of Hapsburg parallels and the tie-in of all experience to the feckless fortunes of the Buffalo Bills- all this will not be finished in the first one hundred days. Nor will it be finished in the first one thousand days, nor in the life of this blog, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.

  • What a relief-a few more hours, perhaps a few days for some but this latest episode of eating our own is about over. A great sign that we are back on track is the aforementioned use of today's word of the day by the usual suspects. Wait til Fitzmas comes and goes with no indictments and an official recommendation that Joe Wilson seek professional help and spiritual counseling. Faster than you can say "bought and paid for right-wing prosecutorial tool" Dems will be longing for the salad days of hurricanes and body-counts.
  • Congrats to the White Sox. Wasn't exactly on the bandwagon, just a baseball fan that appreciated several good series and the fact that Castro is unhappier today. And until such phrases as "wide right", "no goal", and "Music City Miracle" are stricken from memory, "Deserves got nuthin' to do with it." I did like a friend's rationale for rooting against the Sox: They bet on baseball, fixed the World Series. He remained steadfast in the face of his non-baseball fan girlfriend's incredulity as she pointed out: That was in 1919!
  • As one should not give undue publicity to serial killers and vulgar liberals looking to sell something, I will not comment on Gail's reference to her Braves.
