SINGLE THOUGHT ON A VERY SLOW SATURDAY
After a week that left a quantum deal to be desired, I actually slept all day and, when I woke, the weather had changed to autumn and, after the raw heat of the previous day, the transformation was not a moment too soon. But, before I fell into my ten hour near-coma, a thought slow-danced through a mind that was attempting to blank itself out for its own protection, or at least lose itself in contemplation of sex, drugs, or vintage rock & roll. It came in the form of a question I’d dearly love to pose to George W. Bush...
"Yo, Georgie, I was just sitting here wondering if you’d install some incompetent, numbskull rich-boy halfwit or woman-of-no-importance to head up your own Secret Service detail, or to pilot Air Force One. No? Of course not. Dumb question, right? Then pray tell me Mr. President, how come you make such appointments to FEMA, Homeland Security, the United Nations and the Supreme Court, where my safety and that of the rest of the world hangs in the fucking balance?"

UNRELATED GAME
http://www.bunnysneezes.net/page16.html
This ingenious, creative and non-competitive, gothic, virtual paper-doll game comes from a new friend Miss Templeton whose weblog, although nominally dedicated to Irish rock & roll and (seemingly) the consumption of alcohol, currently contains nice remarks about me, a shared affection for Wednesday Addams, and fine picture of Elvis getting drunk.

PLEASE, SHUT THE FUCK UP
Really, enough. In LA the temperatures once again push close to the 100F mark, the planet’s in the toilet, I don’t feel well, and although I know I’ve said all this before, the Fundamentalists keep pushing their crap to the point that, if I had the strength I’d reach for my revolver. Pat Robertson will not do the decent thing and just shut his mouth so, between pimping his brand of canned shakes, he’s now telling us that Jesus is now on the way back (something he might, in actuality, do well to fear...)

AND MEANWHILE IN KANSAS THEY’RE PLAYING GET THE LESBIAN
(Gimme a break...)
Republican lawmakers are drafting new legislation that will make marriage a requirement for motherhood in the state of Indiana, including specific criminal penalties for unmarried women who do become pregnant "by means other than sexual intercourse."
According to a draft of the recommended change in state law, every woman in Indiana seeking to become a mother through assisted reproduction therapy such as in vitro fertilization, sperm donation, and egg donation, must first file for a "petition for parentage" in their local county probate court. Only women who are married will be considered for the "gestational certificate" that must be presented to any doctor who facilitates the pregnancy. Further, the "gestational certificate" will only be given to married couples that successfully complete the same screening process currently required by law of adoptive parents.

HA-HA, HEE-HEE, CHORTLE AND OTHER NOISES OF MIRTH
Having watched Bill Maher and news over the last week or so, it does seem as though the right are really turning on their Boy George. Maybe we can just sit back and smirk while the President’s former thralls take him down? (Or maybe not, but it’s a nice though for a Monday.)

GETTING REAL?
I’m also wondering what effect the massive quake at the juncture of Paskistan, Afghanistan, and Indian, right where the Al Qeada strongholds are alleged to be, will have on the ongoing Allah v Jesus conflict. Can we hope that such an appalling bodycount might bring a breath of merciful reality?

HOLY ERROR, BATMAN
Turns out that it wasn’t stately Wayne Manor that burned down last week. (See Thursday’s post) It was the house next door. (Correction tendered by some girl)

SEND AN EMAIL TO THE FUCKING PRESIDENT
"Thousands of animals perished after Katrina because animal protection agents were made to sit idle, awaiting permission from authorities to enter flooded areas. Ask President Bush to ensure that animals are protected in future disasters."
