Miscellaneous Monday Morning Thoughts*

Yeah, I know it is Tuesday, but it still feels like Monday. Sorry if you don't get it.

You’ll have to forgive me. For the life of me I can’t get excited about writing this week. There is too much to do. My office is a wreck, having moved from one room of the house to another — my office to become the nursery for the new baby, the master bedroom is now the guest bedroom and my office, the living room is now the tv room, and the tv room is now the master bedroom.

The smell of varnish and paint still permeates the air and I’ve got crap all over the new office, not that I can get in there as there is a chest of drawers blocking the door. I have to squeeze through, if I dare enter at all.

Then there are the 500 errors (I’ve heard you, we’ve all heard you, we’re working as fast as we can with a few tricks up our sleeves) that just make it not so fun lately.

Anyway, let me try a few blurbs to get the brain firing on all cylinders again. I still have a pile of Obama earmarks and votes to go through.

  1. Union members are racist. At least some California professor says socially conservative union members in Ohio and Pennsylvania won’t vote for a black man. This same professor would no doubt deny it were someone to write an article pointing out that Cal State professors will not vote for Sarah Palin because she’s an icky Christian. Don’t get me wrong, I understand that race is a big issue in this country. But the whole thing seems to be a set up for Obama’s losses — they are preparing the deck, inserting the race card, and ready to play.

  2. Joe Biden has always been my favorite Senate Democrat. It’s nice to see him wander off the reservation regarding the attacks on McCain. Of course his running mate does say in the ad that he approves the message.

  3. Then there is Joe undermining an Obama talking point. And Obama himself has seemed to embrace playing up McCain’s age as an issue.

  4. So a University Chaplain gives extra credit for students to campaign for Barack Obama. This same chaplain would, no doubt, launch a campus protest if another professor gave extra credit for students working on the pro-life cause. I’ve no clue what denomination the chaplain is, but I do have an idea of where he’ll spend eternity. And not because he’s advocating work for Obama. It’s just that a chaplain doing that is more likely than not doing a lot of other things he should not be doing. “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (Matt. 7:22-23)

  5. Not gonna happen. We get these articles every 4 years. There won’t be a tie and even if there were a tie, the Senate would give Obama his Veep pick.

  6. The Politico is expanding. So now it will offer more absurd stories, fabrications, and hit jobs orchestrated by the opposition. The Politico really is the Drudge, as Crank said in an email last night, of the MSM — they’d rather be first than be right.

  7. My wife’s boss bought me a MacBook Air as thanks for setting up his whole office’s computer system and switching them to Macs. I took it back unopened and put the value on a gift card, knowing that new laptops should be coming forth from Apple in the next month. I’m gonna be pissed if Steve doesn’t usher forth new shiny goodness in the next month. I really want me a MacBook Air. But my luck with Apple is always that a new and better version of what I have comes out within a month of my buying. So I’m waiting and waiting and waiting . . . sigh.
