I’m writing for tomorrow, still feeling a bit under it, and missing my guys, because I cannot go to prison today.  Tomorrow is my Resident Services interview for the new building, and I’m going to that, even if I have to travel by RepubliCare Limousine, aka a hearse.  On the plus-side, Stuck on Stupid moved upstairs a couple days ago.  It’s amazing how a little thing like sleep can improve one’s mood.

Jig Zone Puzzle:

Today’s took me 4:19 (average 4:25).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

Fantasy Football Report:

Here’s the latest from our fantasy football league, Lefty Blog Friends.



If Rob’s R/W/T had not been injured on the opening drive Monday Night, he might well have beaten me.



I’m still two games out.

Short Takes:

From YouTube: Rachel Maddow – VA changes vote count rules while counting


As, a 1960s activist I have been watching politics for a long time, and the only other time I have seen such a blatant attempts at election theft is when Republican staffers physically assaulted Florida poll workers to prevent them from finishing the recount, before Supreme Court Republicans gave the 2000 Presidential election to Crawford Caligula and the ChickenHawk.

From The New Yorker: In an explosive accusation, the House Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R-California) today charged President Obama with “using all the resources at his disposal to make the Affordable Care Act work.”

Accusing the President of participating in “a wide-ranging conspiracy,” Mr. Issa told reporters that “behind closed doors, the President has quietly assembled a high-tech brain trust that is working around the clock to fix the Web site—at government expense.”

Rep. Issa said that he would call for a new round of hearings and would subpoena “all those persons suspected of being involved in the ongoing plot to fix Obamacare.”

That’s what it is! A Nazi, Communist, Socialist, Satanist, Kenyan, Yankee conspiracy!! 😉

From Daily Kos: Republicans in Wisconsin aren’t done regulating lady parts despite 2 bills passed earlier that vastly restrict abortions and mandate ultrasounds.   The quickly rammed through bills were signed in secret by Scott Walker who wanted to avoid the publicity that dogged Republicans in Virginia and caused the Governor of that state to be renamed "Governor Ultrasound".

They’re not done exerting more control over womens bodies and one State Senator is promising "all out hell" if they proceed.

Rachel Maddow is all over Scott Walker, Fartfuhrer of Fitzwalkerstan.

Kudos to the Democrats in captive Fitzwalkerstan. Ladies, get Republicans out of office or prepare to be legal chattel, as follows:

  1. 3:05 How long can you tread water?

  2. Fantasy Football ~ It's you and me this week, Lynn. Good luck. We both need it.

    YouTube ~ Bold move by a bunch of bigotted bandits.

    The New Yorker ~ Way too close to the truth. Read what the NY Times' Eric Lipton and Sheryl Gay Stolberg had to say:

    Daily Kos ~ Those Fascists insist on legislating without public hearings. They are fascinated with abortion and now insist women decide to get abortions based on the sex of the fetus. Where do they get thiese ideas? Chris Matthews was actually all over some woman yesterday who kept insisting this was true. She couldn't prove it of course. Yup! Barefoot and pregnant.

    Cartoon ~ So true.

    Rachel Maddow – VA changes vote count rules while counting

    Another Stolen Election?

    Got Ethics ❓

  4. Puzzle — 3:06  Patty, keep that scow moving or I'll be running right up your six!

    Fantasy Football — Well, my perfect score is almost intact!  I'm ready to rumble Patty Monster!

    Youtube — Can you say 'conflict of interest' for Cuccinelli in deciding how the count is made and changing the rules in one county only — a Democrat leading county of course — mid count.  That should be illegal and is clearly voter suppression.

    The New Yorker — The hearing that needs to be called is about Issa's role in obstructing the government and truth.  Guilty as charged!

    Daily Kos — So much for democracy in Fitzwalkerstan!  It seems that fascism is alive and well in Fitzwalkerstan and is the only way that Walker will govern.  These Republicanus/Teabaggers have to go south, very south, back into the bowels of hell.

    Cartoon — No kidding!


  5. 4:23 floats my boat today.  TC, please get more rest, I am too close to you.

    Virginia – is anyone doing anything about this, or are we all standing helplessly by wringing our hands, or did Herring get so far ahead anyway we can thumb our noses at them?

    Ah yes, TGFA (Thank God for Andy).

    Fitzwalkerstan – My God they are getting brazen!  They must be terrified – but if they are terrified, why are they acting in ways which could get them seriously hurt when people get mad?  Oh, wait, that's expecting logic and awareness of consequences from Rethuglicans.  Never mind.

  6. Glad that stuck on stupid has moved, hope you get some rest.

    Rachel Maddow"  Blatant theft of votes!

    Daily Kos:  I feel sorry for his wife.

    Cartoon:  Sad, but true.

  7. Thanks everyone.  I'm back to last place again.

    Jo, technically what they are doing is legal in Virginia, and if it were not, the AG is the one doinbg that.  Lawsuits are being filed.


  8. So glad Stuck on Stupid has moved slightly – I do hope all goes well with the interview.  Thanks for letting us see the Rachel Maddow video – although it is seriously depressing with all the crooked b****rds on the GOP side – oh they are sooo disgusting!  As for Cuchinelli – words fail me – polite words anyway – what an unprincipled vile apology for a human being!
