Teh Squeaky Wheel
"I see another “bombshell” “game-changer” “pivotal moment” “changes everything” “Trump is done” moment has occurred courtesy of John Bolton. Odd, the timing of this, but there you go."
Bat Pet! Na na na na na na na na!
Hope you spent a relatively comfy night; kidney stones are no fun at all. (FTR has had them twice since I moved here and they were one of the few things which ever stopped Dad in his tracks.) Hope it passes sooner rather than later.
George Washington: hater.
Thanks, Fatwa. I have been pretty good since coming home yesterday and did not need any of the pain meds or nausea pills they prescribed. I expected more pain so I guess I got off light, though the morning was rough. I hope I don’t make a habit of that.
That’s good news, Mac.
Very happy to read you’re doing “pretty good”, Mac; kindly continue down that road. 😉
Happy Whatever-the-heck day it is, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Mac, and Sven!
Mac -- I’m glad you’re doing better. Follow the doctor’s orders and drink plenty of fluids.
I sold my car yesterday, so I guess I’d better get on the stick and get another one. It’s always disheartening to learn how much someone will pay for your old, high-mileage vehicle, but I really didn’t want to put an ad on craigslist or autotrader and you’ve got to allow the other guy a little room for profit, so…
Too bad Cash for Clunkers is no longer in effect!
I see the “hands up” people are back in the news. I was wonderign where they’d been.
I left the teevee on and I can hear a shrill voice--must be that “most qualified person to be President ever” ranting and fighting for us.
One thing I really hate is the way live rock performances are now edited. Or at least the professional ones--a lot of the audience recordings are really quite good, but the pro ones all seem to follow the same format. Shot of the singer: wait 3 seconds and switch. Shot of the bass player: wait three seconds and switch. Shot of the lead guitarist: wait 3 seconds and switch. Full stage shot: wait 3 seconds and switch. Drummer: 3 seconds. Crowd shot: 3 seconds. And on and on and on.
I hate it. I like watching the whole band and I like seeing the individual band members for more than 3 seconds, but there you go. It is what it is.
But watching Donald Trump give a speech--he’s exactly the same way. He can’t keep a cohesive narrative going to save his life and he’s all over the place. It’s rare when he can string together 3 sentences on the same topic. Most annoying.
