Okay, after much dilly dallying on my part, I finally got around to creating a widget for my Liberal Coalition blogroll. As is obvious by it's graph, it is over there to the right. Much good reading at some of those links.

Update: Okay, I have also added a larger Blog Roll, as well as removed the comment and archive widgets.

Update II: Okay, I also eliminated a certain large internet company's widget, which has since resulted in a quicker page load. Interesting, that.

Oops! I forgot to give thanks to MB for the source code of the Big Blog Roll. Actually, a little self disclosure here; I stole the code without first getting his permission. I am a bad, bad Rook and will now go stand in the corner where all bad rooks reside.

What Bobby Said

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
This is a first (and possibly last) in what should have already been a long established practice of "What Mustang Bobby Said."

Aside from the fact that the Republicans and the right wing had decided long before January 20, 2009, that the Obama presidency would be a failure and that they would do everything they could to make it so, the simple fact remains that human nature is such that it is easier to convince the people that a vapor trail off the coast of California is a precursor to an invasion by the Borg than it is to convince 95% of the taxpaying public that their taxes actually went down last year. The more outrageous the story, the easier it is to sell. Orson Welles knew that in 1938; so did P.T. Barnum, and so did the folks who came up with the whiz-bang story that the universe was created in six days. After all, which sounds better; the Garden of Eden and a talking snake or a long boring science lecture on microbes adapting to a planet with carbon and water?

Things I Wish I Had Said

MB over at BBWW:

I think if someone had showed up with a laser pointer in the House gallery and pointed it at the wall, we could have distracted the entire Republican caucus throughout the entire debate.

The blogosphere will be a little less entertaining without Jon Swift.
I am saddened by Jon's passing. My heart goes out to his family, and my thoughts to all of us who enjoyed his humor, and his passion. May the Light shine on in memory.
As it has been a while since I have done any serious thievery; here, without further too do:

We're only a week into this year and it's already getting weird... thudding iguanas? Here's how the LC saw it.
- A Blog Around The Clock: Are you ready for ScienceOnline 2010?
- All Facts and Opinions is back with a personal note.
- archy... and it has palm trees!
- Bark Bark Woof Woof: tea and loathing.
- Bloggg: the secret ingredient.
- Dohiyi Mir: Gaza freedom update.
- Echidne Of The Snakes: the individual mandate.
- Florida Progressive Coalition Blog: how others see us -- Florida politics from the outside.
- ...I Am A Tree with memories of forgotten days.
- Left Is Right with bits and pieces for the week.
- Pen-Elayne on the Web with the Pink Glove Dance.
- Rook's Rant meditates on the new (?) year.
- rubber hose with observations from afar.
- Scrutiny Hooligans: zero growth.
- Stupid Enough Unexplanation: waiting for the adults.
- The Invisible Library and the heretics of Dune.
- The Yellow Something Something: Do you feel safer? D'oh!
- WTF Is It Now?? more bad news for Obama.
Stay warm... I know the feeling.
I know I call it stolen code blogging, but the truth be told, I have MB's permission to steal it, making it not stolen, really. Blah. Boring, ain't it? Oh well. I am sure you would rather be listening to Blitzer or Matthews blather on about some Great, Important, Earth Shattering Presidential Statement. Seriously; "drag this out and make the the Most Important News Story Ever, or at least until they can get to the commercial break to sell Sham-Wows or boner pills." cracked my shit up.

Okay, let me start the New Year out right with some basic Friday larceny:

Friday Blogaround

Good-bye 2009, hello 2010. Here's how the LC saw the last week of the Oughts.

- A Blog Around The Clock: Science vs. Politics.
- archy has a few comments.
- Bark Bark Woof Woof looks back and forward.
- Bloggg finds a helpful Trader.
- Dohiyi Mir: Sam makes his first plane trip.
- Echidne Of The Snakes on Janet Napolitano facing facts.
- Florida Progressive Coalition Blog: "Corporatism" is discussed on the air.
- Musing's musings updates us on his sleeping places this year.
- Pen-Elayne on the Web offers an alternative end to The Wizard of Oz.
- Rook's Rant: if he only had a heart....
- rubber hose: and noz jr. makes three.
- Scrutiny Hooligans: If you're going to sin...
- Stupid Enough Unexplanation discovers that all liberals really want is to be naked.
- The Yellow Something Something finds out that life is better.
- WTF Is It Now?? Feeling Rush's and Karl's pain.
And the beat goes on.
Not that I am making any type of resolution to be more prolific in my posting, or to be more consistent in my stealing from Mustang Bobby every Friday. It is just a simple effort today to be the blogger I am. Or some such nonsense.

And it is all nonsense, you know. All of it. We are on a water logged rock hurtling through space around a burning mass of energy that itself is hurtling through space. A thousand years from now, most of our writings and even our identities will either be lost or forgotten as the human race continues its ever ongoing pursuit of imperfection. That is, if it hasn't achieved perfection and wiped itself out of existence.

No Thieving Today

It is Friday, and I usually steal the code for the Friday Liberal Coalition Blogaround that Mustang Bobby does over at Bark Bark Woof Woof. However, it is also Christmas Morning and I am not going to soil the day with thievery. So, instead I am simply going to supply a link to his Friday Blogaround and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Friday Blogaround

Yet another wild week. Here's how the LC saw it.

- A Blog Around The Clock: under the sea...
- archy: circling the drain.
- Bark Bark Woof Woof: it's not over.
- Bloggg: Moi might go to the (progressive) PA conference.
- Dohiyi Mir: it might work after all.
- Echidne Of The Snakes takes on Richard Cohen's hilarious question.
- Florida Progressive Coalition Blog reviews the week in Florida politics.
- Left Is Right: bits and pieces.
- Pen-Elayne on the Web: playing with food.
- rubber hose and the missus are on their way to Central Asia for two months.

- Steve Bates, The Yellow Doggerel Democrat: we've been had.
- Stupid Enough Unexplanation: you have to understand the argument before you make it.
- WTF Is It Now?? -- Simon's cat's first snowfall.
School's out for the next two weeks. What will I do?
As you may have notice, I have not done much blogging the past week. My lack of post has been due to working two jobs this week, and it has left me with very little time. But next week looks to be slower. However, I am on call at my one job, and so could be called in again. Be that as it may, I do desire a good blogging flogging. Shoot away in the comments, if you so desire.

You know, I feel like doing something different today. So, instead of stealing the Friday Liberal Coalition Blogaround from Mustang Bobby over at Bark Bark Woof Woof, I am going to do it myself.

Okay, enough of that. Seriously, I do not know how Mustang Bobby finds the energy to do this every fraken Friday. You are a machine, MB. And yes, that's two Science Fiction show references in one post. Huh!
