This sadness came across my Twitter feed:

The blindered naïveté is breathtaking; to consider that an entire generation of voters was lost because of the GOP's steadfast aversion to same-sex marriage both manages to overstate the amount of voters lost, overestimates the importance of the issue in the GOP's platform, while also laboring in the delusion that the GOP would back prison reform (it might have a chance if painted as an anti-union thing, but against the specter of being considered soft on crime, forget it) and drug reform (and shit on the memory of the Reagans? are you mad?), and that even if it did, that these two things would somehow get some of the fictional lost voters back.

This poltroon calls himself a RINO, because the label one wears is more important than the principles one lives by, at least to him.  This is how he suddenly, in 2013, realized that opposition to gay marriage is an issue that's breaking the party apart, instead of, you know, being an intrusion by federal and state governments into the civil rights of citizens.  What are rights compared to the power that one's party wields, after all?

When i see people talking about Scala and Clojure, i first assume it's politically themed because i misread the words as Scalia and Cloture.

I'm deals, i am making deals
I am the 1995 Texas governor
I'm deals, i am making deals making deals
I am the 2001 US President
A team.....the Texas Rangers
Flying planes...the National Guard...
Digging for oil in this great state...
There's a fraud we've all seen before...
Defaulting on loans to the S&L
With hands full of taxpayer money we
laugh as we profit hundredfold... run
for governor of Florida and win
Hurry up and wait for Poppy to run for president
Which sets a Bush precedent...
Texas ranch homesickness in a clean White House
And the longest ever trip to Europe.....no
Speak no speak no speak no speak your language
Mangle English for the fun of it... a world laughs
I can't explain, i sit alone at home
I sit alone at home.....Neil and Jeb and me
Dimwit brothers, dimwit brothers...

music: i haven't stopped listening to new music, but i've not gone to any concerts in quite some time.  Not really sure what's going on there.  I wanted to go see Imogen Heap but she was playing in the area while i was in Ecuador.  Pandora has yielded a fair amount of new artists (including Heap) now that i haven't had my XM-empowered car around ([livejournal.com profile] butterflygenius is driving it), but i've purchased a whopping 6 albums and 1 EP in the last 9 months.  I'm probably due for making a run through the wishlist (as well as take out the unwanted to the used CD store).
friends: amazingly enough, i still have some, but i've stopped talking about them because, i dunno, i suck or something.  Maybe they suck, too.  Working graveyard means that Kim and i just want to spend time together and not hang out much with others, although we are taking advantage of our fortnightly clean house and having guests over for dinner every other Friday.  So that's something.
politics: between the Dastardly and the Repulsive, it's hard to really find the desire to talk about this anymore.  I registered GOP to vote in the primary governor election for Tom Campbell, The Last Sane Republican in the Universe, but then he switched to the Senate race and started talking to Tea Party fucknuts, and well, serves me right for trying to game the system.
soccer report: still playing.  Haven't gotten injured since i got back from Ecuador (which i didn't explicitly mention, so i'm sure some of you were wondering when i was coming back).  We ended up tied for last place in Division 9, so we got to enjoy the sweet taste of relegation and are so far 2-2 in Division 10.
fuckheads: as alluded to in 'politics', they're still out there.
random stuff: the frequency of each tag takes a big dip here.  I go through this tag occasionally and recategorize the entries, because i shouldn't have that many of them here; at the same time, i have 29 singleton tags, and that's dumb, too.
wine: still drinkin', oh yeah.  That's slowed down, too, with the graveyard shift (feels funny to have wine with dinner when dinner's your breakfast).  Shit, we went to Livermore for our birthday last year and i didn't write about it.  Livermore is awesome and deserves better press.  I need to follow up on this later.
meme: more of a hall of shame than an active category.  Don't think any of you are bothering with this balderdash anymore, and thank goodness.
food porn: we still love finding delicious new restaurants (and perhaps go a little too often for the good of our pocketbook), and Kim is still an amazing cook.  She just whipped up the best chile verde of all time with half a pork shoulder and homemade tomatillo sauce.
pop culture: maybe i can find a better use of my time, but i fear that my brain is merely playing out the string of infection.








The task will be to coalesce actual writing out of the inchoate sputtering i inflict upon Facebook and Twitter.

With the exciting certainty of a hung parliament, and barring the Liberal Democrats and Labour getting 18 of the remaining undecided 21 MPs (according to Wikipedia) to possibly establish a majority alliance, what are the voting patterns of the Parliamentary minnows (so to speak), and how would they be wooed by the Tories and Labour?

RMH joined the group U.S. SUPREME COURT JUST SOLD THE USA TO THE FILTHY RICH, IT'S FASCISM .
rone Uh, i'm pretty sure that's not what "fascism" means.
RMH Well, I am a Democrat too and they dont always make sense either. Besides someone invited me and I didnt want to be unappreciative.
rone So you'll go along with what other people say even if you disagree, just so you don't hurt their feelings? You really are a Democrat.
RMH Thank you sir may I have another?!

Because i could not stop for death, i bought some to go.


What the world needs is a first-person shooter version of Dig Dug.


Working in the data center is like hanging out in Darth Vader's chest.


When i die, i hope to have a funny look on my face.  When the rigor mortis sets in, people coming to my funeral will say, "Wow, Mom was right."


You know the human race is a fucking failure when there's such a thing as a "blogging Lifetime Achievement Award".


Yo mama's so ugly, she can't masturbate anymore `cause her clitoris got a restraining order against her.


There is no 'i' in 'team', but there is an 'eat' and a 'me'.


Consider, if you will, the potential of Dr. Phil/Jim Cramer erotica.


Dear President Obama: stretching out a hand to Joe Lieberman should only happen when your arm fully extends as you backhand him across his Droopy face.

Thank you for reading.  Check back again in three years for more Twitturds.

I received a call from my House Representative, Zoe Lofgren (and i note that it's not Zoë because she doesn't pronounce the 'e' in her name), asking me to join a phone conference about health care reform.  The various people who chimed in with comments and questions ran the gamut from people who showed various levels of support and opposition who made civil and thoughtful contributions, to outright morons, such as one dolt who said, "I don't want the government in charge of health care.  I'm an employer and people tell me they don't want benefits, and if they need anything they'll just get it for free at the emergency room."  Another clown added, "Health insurance companies want to turn a profit, and there's nothing wrong with making a profit; that's what this country was founded on."  Funny, i thought this country was founded on tax evasion.

The next right-wing fucknut who whinges about Barack Obama being a "polarizing president" is going to get their nose rubbed deep in the shitpit that is the current political situation in Ecuador and Rafael Correa.  I just had to bitch out over email a whole bunch of family members on the pro- and anti-Correa sides for behaving like fuckheads at each other.
