I hear there is a purple pill that will fix all this but I have to figure out the right question to ask. Until then sputter, hack, wheeze.
- Technology apparently hates Santa and ruined at least one little child's Christmas forever. What next - anti-Santa beer? Santa and beer???
- Via Ben the Tiger, which I pronounce Ti-gaah in a high squeeky voice, comes this lengthy description of the known implications of the Karlheinz Schreiber (KhS) matter. Or those known as of two days ago. And it is just so fun avec beaucoups des pantalons de feu!
But never any money to Mulroney, or not while he was prime minister. And not for any service he performed in the office. To Tory partisans, that's all that matters. The same crowd who were baying for Schreiber to be put on the next plane not two days ago, insisting he was a con man, a liar and a thief who was not to be trusted, now trumpet his testimony as having exonerated Mulroney. (Aside from the extended rant about what a "liar" he is, that is.)Yet no one is asking where the same extended family of people involved then are located now in the KleenNuGov. There were staffers then and now, right?
- The most amazing stat?
"Since Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS — the night Boston began its epic comeback from three games down against the Yankees — (Alex) Rodriguez has come to the plate with 38 runners on base, over the span of 59 at-bats. He left every single one on base, going 0-for-27, right through the Yanks' Division Series loss to Cleveland this month."
- Here is an interesting article on Huckabee which leads me to wonder what a Clinton-Huckabee presidential race would look like given that it is basically a battle between a left wing Baptist and a slightly rightly Methodist. Those two points in the Protestant continuum are pretty much pew-mates. The fine lines caused by the splintering schismists are fascinating stuff, especially when the fate of the free world is on the line...not really but, you know, this is a blog so I have to make stuff up.
