solid.

I wanted to post a reaction to W’s speech last night, something along the lines of, say, WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP.

I wanted to write something about the Federal Election Commission holding hearings to consider whether to extend campaign finance rules to blogs, especially those that espouse a particularly political point of view. Like maybe Uncle Crappy, who definitely is of a particular political persuasion and expresses that viewpoint from time to time. And the staggering number of free-speech and First Amendment issues that such regulation would involve and what a first-class clusterfuck that would be. And how hard I would giggle if I got a letter from some FEC flunky asking me to curtail my Uncle Crappy activities, or offer equal time (which Juan already takes care of, now that I think about it).

Yeah, I wanted to do a longer piece, about something a little more serious. I wanted to do this if for no other reason than to show everyone that my brain is thinking about things other than the reunion.

Which is in three days.

I wanted to do that stuff, and I may still, but for now, I CAN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT THE FREAKING REUNION. IN THREE DAYS FROM NOW. SOONER, IF YOU COUNT THE VARSITY CLUB THING ON FRIDAY. WHICH IS IN TWO DAYS FROM RIGHT FREAKING NOW.

Jesus. Would someone please just tell me to shut the hell up?

  1. UC – shut the hell up.
    As a voter who generally sides with Juan’s type (thank god you don’t live where I do – the Dems don’t even put candidates on the ballot – it goes like this – there’s the GOP primary – the winner takes the GOP endorsement, the looser runs as an independent – I live in a red county in a blue state)
    Anyway, I didn’t catch much of W’s speech, but what I did watch and then read about later, disturbed me. W’s foreign policy was the main reason I voted blue last election (and the fact that whatever I did really didn’t matter – don’t like the electoral college – I feel disenchanted). Linking Iraq to 911 was at best shameful. I’m very conflicted over Iraq – many positives have come out, as well as many negatives. (ever read Barry Friedman in the Times??). Not that I’m a big Kerry fan – but we really do need to project a better message of our road map – Iraq has to step up to the plate – but until they can, we need to get control of things over there –

    Enough of that – ever notice how similar jihad sounds to yeehaa –

    As for the reunion – I have two comments – Popeye said – I yam what I yam – and I remember telling somebody at the 10-year that I was a shrubber – that I arranged, designed and sold shrubbery – don’t know what will come out of the mouth this time

    See ya’ll soon

  2. I think Barry Friedman was the dentist that Jennifer Anniston’s character on “Friends” was set to marry, right?
