A Couple Shakers

Head shakers that is.

Don't you just wanna slap this [insert favorite adjective here]?

I work with someone who does that self-righteous face-pinch combined with the head-nod when she feels she's made a point. She probably thinks I agree with her because I find it so annoying, all I can do is smile when she does it.

This whip-head is offended by the mere fact that Obama is running for president, so has put up a sign on his parking lot that Obama supporters can't park there.

Just 8 days to go and it'll all be over except for Bush trying to come up with a reason to institute martial law. Save for that, it's Goodnight Bush.

Last minute addition! Ron Howard does a political commercial:

It's amazing to me that Andy Griffith is still alive.

I'll be happy too when it's all over. Since homeschoolers round here are all over the map politically, there's an unwritten rule that you don't discuss politics with each other, which leads to some odd sudden silences when everybody in your park day or co-op group is unable to comment on something just said, for fear of offending others.

Palin's name came up one morning when I was with some other moms, and there was this lengthy silence, as everyone, left and right, bit their tongues. I finally ventured "I think it's great that she nurses her baby in meetings"; a rush of general assent, and we all switched to talking about something else.

Yeah, I've been through a few of those.

What's funny, though, is all the folks who had McCain posters in their yards (on the streets where I drive home) have removed them.

Each and every one.

One even replaced it with an Obama sign. It's still there, so it probably wasn't a prank.

Has anyone else noticed the unbelievable good luck that Obama has had in his political career? Four years ago, when he ran for the US Senate, the D’s nominated him as a sacrificial lamb to run against Jack Ryan, a hugely popular R. But, Ryan’s campaign went down in flames because of a sex scandal and Obama cruised to victory without breaking a sweat.

Then, in the Presidential campaign, Obama’s opponent tells everyone “economics is not my strong suit” just a couple weeks before Wall Street collapses and economics becomes the #1 issue on everyone’s minds. And THEN, apparently not content to shoot himself in just one foot, this same opponent chooses a vacuous knucklehead to be his running mate. (Said knucklehead runs up six-figure expenses in wardrobe and makeup in just two months, screws up every one of her interviews except with Hugh Hewitt, gives increasingly hysterical speeches in which she calls Obama a “terrorist” and says that his supporters are “not real Americans,” and generally convinces Americans that they had DAMNED WELL better vote for Obama just to keep this knucklehead out of Washington.)

Is it really luck, or just the chickens coming home to roost?

The wingnut spin machine has always been a mystery to me in that anyone believes it.

Here's an article I thought kinda captured that unique moment when reality catches up with wingnuttery:
