Yesterday I celebrated with a nice long nap and a lazy day. As dull as that may sound, I’m not al all disappointed and the hundreds of greetings I received really made my day. I’m current with replies. Tomorrow appears routine.
Jig Zone Puzzle:
Today’s took me 3:30 (average 5:24). To do it, click here. How did you do?
From NPR: Lawyers for former Sen. Larry Craig argued today that using campaign money for a legal defense over his 2007 arrest was proper because he was arrested while on official business.
If you recall, Craig, a Republican from Idaho, was arrested during a sting at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Craig used a bathroom there during a layover, when an undercover officer said Craig sexually solicited him by tapping his foot.
Craig pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor but after his case became public he tried to renege.
The Federal Elections Commission sued him for using more than $216,000 in campaign money for that legal fight.
I don’t know about you, but I’m sure relieved to hear that this family values Republican trolling airport bathrooms with his wide stance was official business.
From The New Yorker: A puff of white smoke over Vatican City today raised hopes among the faithful who jammed St. Peter’s Square until an official spokesman explained that the Vatican was “just burning some documents.”
“Wednesday is the day we traditionally burn documents and other legal evidence, and we totally forgot about the white smoke thing,” the Vatican spokesman said. “We apologize for any misunderstanding this might have caused.”
Actually that is a deception. What really happened was that the Cardinals were relaxing in a circle, when some of what they were smoking went up the chimney by mistake. Once they realized that the white smoke had been seen, they elected the guy that brought the stash of Argentinian Ass Kicker, because he had the best stuff.
From Blog for Arizona: The dimmest bulbs in the political marquee, state of Maricopa Tea Party teabaggers, are upset that the recall effort against their beloved Crazy Uncle Joe Arpaio is going so well. So they are throwing a bit of a temper tantrum by retaliating for the recall by filing a recall of their own against House Minority Leader (and exploring for a gubernatorial bid) Chad Campbell.
Don’t try to make sense of it, there isn’t any. They are just cherry-picking a high profile Democrat whom they dislike. These are people who have not advanced beyond the emotional development of a three year old with the "terrible threes."
All I can say is this author has done three year olds a grave injustice by comparing even their worst tantrums to this vile TEAbuggery! Crazy Joe must go!
In that, he truly represents the Republican Party.
