However, on a good note; Cinnamon quickly and happily settled into the larger space. After nearly 3 years of cramped, crowded abodes, she now enjoys the ability to run around the three floors with wild abandon. As a result, she is already starting to lose weight. Well, that and I have put her on a austerity diet that would make most European nations giddy.
And one final note: I found the charger for my camera's battery. So, I ought to be able to post more pictures soon. I might even give you an exterior shot of the new castle. Or not. We are talking about me and my ability to completely and totally devolve back into the world's greatest unpublished blogger.
And yet....there's an obvious slippery slope here. Lots of advertisers already shy away from political shows of every stripe, and this episode could begin to drive them all away. Why take the chance, even on a host who doesn't usually cause national outrage? "Usually" isn't never, after all, and in any case, you never know what a guest is going to say. Better to stick with local blowhards and self-help shows.
Limbaugh is getting what he finally deserves. I couldn't be happier about it. I just hope that down the road this doesn't turn into a preemptive boycott of every political gabber out there who has even the smallest chance of ever producing any national blowback. That runs the risk of turning every show into a bland marshmallow. It wouldn't make the world a better place.
What gets me is that Kevin is usually quite good at looking up research, or finding historical evidence to back up his claims. However, the above quoted post lacks both. So, all I can do is chalk this up to fear.
But why would he be scared? He blogs for a publication that exists financially by a totally different form of support. And what advertising there is is from companies with an explicit political agenda. They are not going to pull their ads because of some national outrage. Chances are they want that outrage to occur. So, it is not a fear of his losing his gig as blogger for Mother Jones.
I think Kevin is seeing this one tree as indicative of the entire forest. Or would somehow working in "one bad apple does not make the whole barrel bad" be the better metaphor?
Kevin is talking about Rush. I am talking about Kevin. I will stick with the tree/forest metaphor. If I was talking about Rush, then I could use the barrel metaphor.
Ah, hey.... EXCUSE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for your attention. I have an announcement: I am leaving. Good by.......
Oh, wait. Sorry. That is from a movie.
Actually. I have a new addition to my blogroll. Charles P. Pierce who now blogs at Esquire. I have listened to "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me" on occasion. But it is nice to see him on a forum where the decorum allows him to be a little less restrained. That, and he agrees with me about the Jacob Weisberg assault on Ron Suskind.
First of all, a tip of the old hat to BBWW for the lead to Mr. Pierce's blog, and secondly, congratulations to BBWW for making the blogroll there.
For that, Mustang Bobby, I hate you.
Unfortunately, it seems to be taking it's time filtering through the intertubes. The old Avatar is still showing up at Bryan's blog.
Now, we have the babbling hard on for men in power Chris Matthews claiming bloggers don't get fact checked. Look who's talking.
It's ironic that a cable news host such as Chris Matthews would attack bloggers for supposedly not checking their facts, considering the amount of falsehoods and factuallyinaccurate statements he regularly utters on the air -- which have all been fact-checked by bloggers.This is what's know as projection.
Although babbling on about men in power appears more aligned to penis envy than projection.
And they wonder why they have lost the average American's trust.
Yeah, I know, I'm whining. Don't blame me. You're the one reading my blog.
Well, kick my ass, I discovered Carrie Fisher has a blog. All these years of blissful ignorance as to the totality of my life's completelessness exposed in one fell swoop by Lab Kat. You know the hammer is less painful.
Now, I'm not getting the 6500 hits like I did at first, but I am getting 400 to 500 hit days from time to time. I can't explain why I have various influxes of hits, but I am definitely enjoying the dramatic increase in traffic.
Sigh. That's what I get for blogging in the basement.
