Sorry I've been missing in action as of late.. but I just hate everything right now
No, no, no... all is well on a personal level, but I haven't read or heard one bit of news lately that makes me happy. In fact, besides my wonderful Hubby & kiddos, and cooking really yummy food, not much has made me smile recently. Of course I love you guys... but ya gotta understand: It is freezing cold and snowy here in N.E. Ohio, and the temps are expected to reach zero degrees or below this weekend, so besides snuggling up with my kids, husband, hot cocoa, delicious soups, stews, yummy breads and crackers, while watching the highly anticipated new season of Monk, WTF else is there to do? I'm beyond fed up with the media feeding frenzy of the caucuses, the ridiculous "race war' between Hillary and Obama, the latest insane ramblings of BushCo, The Huckster and The Big Greasy Mitt, Obama's "love" for Ronnie Ray-Gun, and the unspeakable long list of crimes that have recently been committed by parents/adults against children (here, here, here, here, and here... and of course, that particular kiddie raping perv is a Republican), Add to this that I've been forced to shop for a new cell phone because mine has been abused and dropped too many times while trying to pry it out of the inexplicable kung-fu like grip of my tiny Lil Man. Since I'll have to live with this new phone for the next 2 yrs, shopping for one that has all the features I desire PLUS has the toughness I require (flimsy yet pretty RAZRs and KRZRs be damned!) my quest is like shopping for an illusive Grail to lease that meets my impossible standards of "girliness and cuteness" and being made of hand forged steel. Grr.... I'm grouchy... I'm cold... I'm fed up with insane politicians and criminals... I'm currently cell-phoneless... and I'm seriously contemplating hibernation... but only if it comes with a durable yet really girlie cell phone, yummy hot cocoa, soups, stews, breads and crackers, a giant down comforter, and oh yeah... the new season of Monk.
Mike Huckabee and Britney Spears: Unstoppable Southern Christian Trainwrecks?... maybe...
And to think... once upon a few hrs ago... I actually thought all I had to post about was the... ahem... oh-sooo-shocking choice of Iowa's GOP in the Iowa Caucus: Ya see, they picked someone whom they say "reflects their values." Uh-huh.... ahem... TRANSLATION: Theocratic nutcases picked another aww-shucks internationally clueless hypocritical hillbilly who wants to shove the Bible down our throats, into our bedrooms, and up our ovaries. Yep, this NRA-loving wingnut, who forgives murdering rapists of Clinton relatives, hopes everyone will ignore his own record as Gov (especially all of that "Jesus liked the poor not capital gains" stuff, plus his dog-murdering son's plentiful crimes) while thanking all of those "unborn voters" out there in his victory speech (as fellow crazy creationist Chuck Norris and his creepy preternaturally white teeth proudly looked on) clearly reflects the Iowa GOP's values. Wow. Who knew that we'd e-v-e-r have to question the dubious and cryptic morality of evangelical voters who flocked to The Huckster's questionable Southern Christian values?... (as if we haven't already been doing that since Bush slithered into the White House, eh?) Speaking of crazy Southerners with questionable Christian values of convenience... what about Britney's latest breakdown? Phew! Thank Baby Jesus that Unfitney and her pregnant 16 yr old lil sis were raised with such rock solid Southern Christian values that their pimp... err... their Christian mommy... was planning on telling us all about in her cancelled book. Speaking of the pimp... err... Christian mommy, she has primly asked for nuthin' but prayers for Britney. And for those of you who did not happen to catch John Edwards' 2nd place speech last night, this latest Britney escapade is a prefect example of "America's Haves vs the Have-Nots" that Edwards has so frequently spoken of. Don't think so? Do you honestly think for 1 second that if Britney were a single middle-class/poor mother instead of the rich trainwreck that she is that her kids would not have been taken away from her a LONG time ago? Do you honestly think that a hospital stay PLUS a promise of NO criminal charges would have been the end result of locking one of her babies in a room when the kid's father came to pick him up in addition to a 3 hour long standoff with the cops if that crazy bitch weren't rich?? Puh-leeze. If she were you or I, she would had been heard screaming "Don't tase me, bro!" and/or she would have had one helluva case of the scorching retinas after being peppered sprayed, and she would have been unceremoniously hauled off to the pokey. Once in jail, instead of a hospital room, she would have happily worked out her longstanding mental issues & suicide watch while staring at the filthy walls of a jail cell, wondering when further criminal charges and/or possible prison time would come crashing down upon her... while kissing goodbye any chances of being near the precious fruit of her loins again... if that crazy bitch weren't rich....
