Monday Musings

Dubai is goodbye? Or just a Tokyo-yo? Let's muse.

Even more curious than the phenomena that is Thanksgiving dinner, which emphasizes symbolic comfort foods one would seldom consider eating on any other occasion? Thanksgiving leftovers, or, rather, those who are passionate for them. We're talking about the hardened, dry meat of a bird that doesn't rank among the tastiest to begin with.

My leftover turkey recipe? Leave turkey in refrigerator. Age three days. Toss.

Remember Mike Huckabee, the perfectly nice but not so presidential candidate for the Republican nomination? Turns out he granted clemency to the guy who murdered four police officers in a Seattle coffee shop. Two years ago, I wrote this of Huckabee:

"Are the Republicans really going to nominate a Bush clone (one who draws arbitrary distinctions with Bush at that) who also has a Willie Horton problem?"

They did not, and they will not. Mike Huckabee is a nice person who lets his heart get in the way of his head. Giving power to such people is a dangerous thing. Who knows when God will call Huck's cell with another bad idea.

So, it turns out that the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia decided to toss all of the raw data they had been collecting from various weather stations. Cue thousands of greenos hurrying to their keyboards to explain that it is perfectly normal for scientists to throw away large amounts of data used in their research.

(edit: scouring the web, I see that the left is starting to take this story more seriously. They are now throwing the entire institution under the bus, casting the University of East Anglia as a sort of glorified community college.)

I am completely ignoring cyber-Monday. I'm also done blogging. Enjoy the sunshine!

Hey Kevin...are you the same Kevin S. who used to post on God's Politics? Did you choose not to post anymore or did they ban you?

I got banned (partially) too, but I post from time to time still. Are you thinking of going back?

I've been banned twice, for no apparent reason other than I'm a conservative, and "God's Politics" is simply code for the Democratic Party platform. I'm done. Sojo's posts are exasperatingly disingenuous and obtuse, and their followers are uniformly jackasses.

It's too bad you've left. Lord V., LJRD and the occasional drop-in by xfree are the only ones to inject an occasional bit of constructive criticism into the mix.

I tried to keep things on the level so I wouldn't get banned, but Rick's insane comments drove me over the edge.

At least JamesM hasn't started stalking you here though. Haha...

Actually, he has, as have a couple others.

That's sad. I feel sorry for them.
