* So it looks like Libya is no longer under the control of Qdaffy, but no one is sure where Qdaffy is. How hard could he be to spot?
* I was thinking a solution for Obama to make sure he gets an appropriate amount of vacation time: He should form a presidents’ union. It will be a union on making sure presidents get the proper respect and benefits they deserve. And if we try to cut back his vacation days or reduce lunch time so he doesn’t have enough time to enjoy his waffles, he’ll get together with his union and go on strike. Then we’ll have to somehow make do with him not being president and not randomly spending lots of money. I’m sure we’ll then panic and give in to all his demands.
* Remember during Obama’s election when everyone was sure that if we elected Obama it would be nothing but unicorns and rainbows forever after? Pretty much even the dumbest people on the left have decided that maybe Obama was a bit overhyped, but Tom Friedman apparently thinks the jury is still out. Who is this guy anyway? All I know is he makes some of the dumbest, most repetitive editorials for the New York Times (apparently for a period of two and a half years he said what will happen in Iraq will be determined in the “next six months”) and has an obsession with how great and efficient the Chinese dictatorship is and fantasizes about Obama being dictator for a day. Yet somehow the NYT is convinced we want to hear his opinions on foreign affairs and world politics when a sane person wouldn’t take his advice on how to get to the nearest Walgreens.
“But is he dumber than Krugman?” you ask.
I dunno. That’s a hard one. Anyway, it seems like people should be a little more selective on who writes for a major newspaper, but then again, “major newspaper” is becoming a bit of an oxymoron.
* Oh, and here’s another great one from the New York Times. I guess they wanted to hear the average American’s ideas on what he would do if he were president, but the NYT has no clue what an average American looks like or where to find one, so instead they got a gaggle of leftist freaks. One actually wrote this:
“I’d grant the very rich the boon of helping them help others, as a form of gratitude for their good fortune.”
There’s like so much that’s wrong with some people in this country in that single statement. First, there’s just the general covetousness where people are obsessed with the rich despite their income being no business of anyone else. Then there’s that projection of greed on to the rich when it’s obvious who are the greedy ones here. And there’s that horrible idea that taking money by force and giving it to the hugely irresponsible people in Washington is anything akin to charity (which many rich people would be doing with their money if it weren’t being confiscated by dimwits). And finally, there’s that ephemeral concept that the rich aren’t paying enough. No one knows what they’re paying now, they’re just sure it’s not enough. What is enough? More than what is currently being paid, and that’s what forever it will be. Man, what a better country this would be if we could just take these people, tell them, “Your existence in this nation is an insult to all who have fought and died for it,” and then hand them a hatchet and drop them on the other side of the Canadian border to fend for themselves.
* BTW, have you seen the expression the left has been using for when a Democrat turns against the far left for the sake of moderates? “Hippie punching.” I like it. The Democrats are going to have to be hippie punching until their arms fall off to get any credibility these days, though.

* I haven’t responded to spam e-mail in a little while, so let’s see what the Great Landlord has left me:
R. Paull is almost certainly my best favorite choice within the actual impending election, however I don’t really feel like he has receiving sufficient good coverage from the biased mass media in order to maillot away the win.
Wow. The most coherent pro-Ron Paul comment IMAO has ever received and it’s spam. No wonder Ron Paull has so much trouble trying to maillot away the win.
Throughout this awesome scheme of things you’ll get a B- with regard to effort. Where exactly you misplaced me personally was in all the specifics. As as the maxim goes, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be much more accurate here. Having said that, let me inform you just what exactly did deliver the results. Your article (parts of it) is actually rather convincing and that is most likely the reason why I am making the effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, although I can notice the jumps in reasoning you come up with, I am not necessarily confident of just how you seem to connect the details which produce the final result. For now I will, no doubt yield to your position however trust in the future you actually connect the facts better.
Wow. A B-. That’s the lowest grade possible on the Obama rating system.
Despite this being random spam, I have to admit it’s a pretty on the nose critique and stings just a little.
I usually enjoy your writing but perhaps this time you might have been too sick when writing because the article it feels rushed.
Thanks for the diagnosis, Dr. House.
That’s all for today! Have a great weekend… five days from now!
