Soon, I will be blogging at Guy Andrew Hall. More information to follow.

Update: Yup, got the new blog running.

Update 2: Going to give Wordpress a try. Movable Type is just too buggy.

To Wipe Or Not To Wipe?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Yeah. Do I wipe out my database of old posts or do I just go along limping with a Movable Type install that is broken and can no longer do categories? I am of a mind to start over. Part of it comes from seeing Obama not only win a second term, but do so with a much better turn out. It seems an old age has begun to come to an end for America and a new one is beginning. I figure, why not too with my blog?

As a side note: Paul McCartney singing Elenor Rigby live over Pandora Internet Radio.

He Is In His Grave

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Would you all just let him lay in political death please. Seriously. STOP. TALKING. ABOUT. HIM.

And yes, I know. It makes no sense for me to tell everyone to shut up about Mitt and then go and link to their posts talking about Mitt.

Tough shit.

Stunned Electorate?

There is that moment in "A Few Good Men" where everyone in the courtroom is stunned after Jack Nicholson's character admits to having ordered the code red.

I cannot but help think the country is currently stunned at it's own admission to embracing the Democratic party over the Republican party. In a few weeks the shock will wear off and things will start happening. And happening fast.

You heard it here second. I found it over at my favorite roo's place.

I for one am looking forward to greeting our new Zombie Overloards.

Long Live The King.

Ladies and Gentlemen! I give you the Once and Future President of the United States.

Remember that you read it here first.

Did He Lose Something?

Don't look now, but I think someone is mad at losing his white, male privilege!


Issues With Formating

Yeah. Movable Type is acting up. I was getting weird characters where there were spaces or when I was putting in the degree symbol. I think I have the setting adjusted correctly now.

He Finally Did It!

I rode all the way to Finlayson and back. I was not planning on going that far. I gave myself a 45 minute time limit. I figured it had been so long since my last run that I would be out of shape and exhausted after just 10 to 15 minutes. 20 minutes later I found myself at Finlayson. Unless it is nice on Wednesday, this might just be my last leg of Tour de Rook 2013.

From My Nook!

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Alright! I can type into my MovableType interface. The upgrade to MovableType must have fixed a bug with the Nook's operating system. That makes me very happy. Currently I am sitting at the south Dunn Bros in Rochester, MN. However, I am about to go pick up Norene for breakfast. You all have a good Sunday.

About The VP Debate......

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Yeah. See, I didn't watch it. What for? I know who I am going to vote for and no amount of grandstanding imagery is going to make me change my mind. Vice President Biden could have made a mockery of himself last night (which is probably what the Republicans are claiming this morning) and I'd still vote for him and Obama.

Instead, I went about Left Blogstonia and read the reactions of my fellow progressives. My first stop for analysis was over at Mother Jones. Kevin Drum is by far the worst person to go to for analysis. Or, if you approach it as I do, the best. Why? Because the man couldn't analyze his way out of a wet paper bag. He invariably gets it wrong. So, I read his take, turn it around 180 degrees, and I have what really happened. Oh, and both Steve Benen and Ed Kilgore are of the same cloth. At least in their initial reactions to events.

See, all three of them are great facts and figures bloggers. Especially Kevin. The man has a nose for facts and figures. But when it comes to event analysis, forget about it. They let their personal biases get in the way. They have the pearl-clutching reaction of OH. MY. GOD! They are hurting the other guys feelings. Which is ironic, considering that the other side proclaim victory when they think they've hurt our feelings. Arrogant bastards.

Now, when it comes to analysis, I like TPM and Charles Pierce. They have a clearer perception of events. At least, they have a better track record at pointing out the affect of events. TPM is at least civil about their analysis. Not so Charles. He comes from the guttural wing of the progressive movement. He is not afraid of hurting the other side's feelings. Actually, he seems to take great delight in causing any amount of red-face outrage. He might even go so far as declare victory. Arrogant bastard. If he was blogging from a personal blog instead of with a national magazine, I suspect the language would be even fouler than it already is at Esquire.

Of course, one of my favorite go-to bloggers for event analysis is BlueGal over at They gave us a republic..... Unfortunately, she has been silent for a while. Hopefully she will be healthy soon and resume her ranting and raving. It is missed.

Ultimately, from reading the progressive blogs, it looks like the perception of Left Blogstonia is that Biden won the debate last night, with Ryan looking all the more like a proby out of his league.

Oh, and Romney is a liar.
