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.

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!

Romney came out with his tax plan!

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!

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.

Charles Pierce:

You know what's the difference between Sarah Palin and Paul Ryan?


I'm just grateful my mouth wasn't full of coffee when reading his post.

I rarely steal any content from Bark Bark Woof Woof. However, the political cartoon posted by Mustang Bobby was just too good to pass up:

What To Do, What To Do?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

So, I'm deciding what to do today. One, should I clean house? Two, should I just be lazy and watch DVDs and Blu-ray's all day? Or three, should I meditate all day until I transcend this mundane existence turning into the godlike being I know I've always wanted to become?

Yeah, I think number three is the way to go.

2012 Tour De Rook - Leg 34

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

To the stats:

  • Thumbnail image for Tour_Rook.gif Wind:  12 mph N Gusting up to 20 mph
  • Humidity:  32%
  • Temperature: 68° F
  • Total Distance: 20.14 miles
  • Elapsed riding time: 01:21:45
  • Top Speed: 20.0 mph
  • Average Speed: 14.7 mph
  • iPod: George Winston - Shuffle of the 4 Seasons Albums.
  • Wind: 10 mph NNW
  • Humidity:  35%
  • Temperature: 63° F

I had originally planned on going all the way into Moose Lake but the wind gusts kicked my ass. So I went 10 miles into the wind, and 10 miles back. Now I have some food in my toaster oven which I can smell as I type this. Oh, the reason for the weather stats before and after is because of the quickness to the change of weather as the sun sets. I have to say, by the time I actually pulled up to the front door, the wind was completely gone. However, I am sticking with weather.com's stats.
