In the midst of all this impending Tea Party Triumphalism, I popped over to the old D for some nostalgia and comic relief. If you think that Jack Landsman jumped that place over a few hundred sharks as a frontpager, he’s got nothing on changeagain2012.
I couldn’t help aiding and abetting his:
“Did Obama Royalist Enforcer Thugs Run Everybody Off From MyDD” http://mydd.com/users/changeag…
(I should know how to simply link the title by now).
Childish to get involved, I know. I chalk it up to grading my way through a pile of midterms while ill.
And this brilliant Pumagressive is gracing the front page as well with:
“The Only Politician Obama May Personally Get Elected Isn’t Even A Dem. How Obama’s Choice Is Screwing Rhode Island Democrats.”
Don’t bother for anything other than entertainment’s sake. If it upsets your stomach, stay away. But it’s a bit of a relief from reminding my students that all sentences actually require verbs and that they should stay away from invoking “history” and “human nature” in support of their arguments.
At least we don’t live where Brit does. Saving the economy by throwing 500,000 public sector employees out of work seems bizarre from a variety of perspectives. Hope it’s not in the cards this side of “the pond.”
Stay strong all.
