I can't tell you the joy I had today listening to right wing radio and the way they were losing their shit over the chance that Ron Paul could come first in the Iowa Caucuses next week. So much so that it's have been nothing but hysterical pronouncements about how the world will end under a Paul Administration.
Finally the Republicans have found something they hate and fear more than a black man - someone who wants to end their gravy train just because he can. He sticks his finger in the eye of the military industrial complex and the fat cats of the Republican Party who laughed at him and marginalized his ideas all these years.
Of course he is not going to win but the full out attack against him says more about the lack of ideas or courage in the GOP than it does about Paul. He is just a goofy old man who has people clap when he speaks. Who wouldn't ride that for all it was worth?
I love how Paul just won't die despite the enormous sums of money spent to fight him and his candidacy. What if he asks Palin or Trump to be his VP? Good lord, people would lose what is left of their fucking minds. Jon Stewarts head would explode from all the great comedy material that would result.
Now if you are Obama you are loving all this chaos. The GOP and their incredible lack of focus have guaranteed the President's re-election and maybe cost themselves seats in the House and the Senate. President Obama just might have the votes finally going his way to force some much needed change down people's throats.
All the asshole obstructionists will have to find a way to compromise or find themselves locked out of the discussion. Tell me one thing that Boener or McConnell have done to actually help their country? Just one. Those two broke my first rule of living - don't be a dick.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
