You know, I've just spent almost an hour trying to write a post here with amusing news highlights from the week. But, there aren't any, really. I give up. The presidential candidates are still going "Nanner nanner boo boo" at each other; Governor Palin is still doing her hockey-mom schtick on the campaign trail; Senator Biden is still opening his mouth and sticking his foot in it. There is nothing new under the sun, and November 4th cannot come quickly enough for me.
Isn't there a war/occupation happening in Iraq? I haven't heard anything about it for a while.
Does anyone else have the impression that the Treasury Secretary, and the Federal Reserve, and the Congress do not actually know what to do about the financial crisis? That they are, in fact, sort of feeling their way along? And was there anything scarier this past week than watching a confused Alan Greenspan being grilled by irate Senators to no purpose? The guy never knew what he was doing, folks. That's the long and short of it.
Click on that last link - it's got a good cartoon.
Nothing funny here, folks - maybe you should listen to that traitor Christopher Buckley instead. He's a pretty amusing guy. (Skip the first 3 minutes if you are the impatient type.)
