I'm Baaaack . . .

"Though we seemed dead, we did but sleep; advantage is a better soldier than rashness . . . now we speak upon our cue, and our voice is imperial . . . "
- Shakespeare, King Henry V, Act 3, Scene VI

Yes, I've been away for a bit, mainly because night shift is a stone bitch and most of the time my brains have been hammered to tapioca.

But no more.

Here in sunny Flori-Duh, we have a raft of Gubernatorial and Senatorial candidates that have at times made me feel as if I should shove myself feet-first into a stump grinder. Rick Scott's trying to buy the office outright, Bill McCollum's unleashed his best rightward lurch as a dance step, and Alex Sink's watching her poll numbers go up as a result. On the Senate side, even Democrats like Charlie Crist, much to the disappointment of Kendrick Meek and Jeff Greene. Marco Rubio? A complete asshole who's managed to irritate the senior vote.

Elsewhere, we have the Obama Administration allowing itself to be buffaloed by the likes of Andrew Breitbart and Matt Drudge. The knee-jerk firing of Shirley Sherrod smacks of very poor managerial practices, and I'd advise her to walk away from their offer to reinstate her.

Kim Jong Il's rattling his tiny saber again as the US and South Korea conduct their annual war games. This time the DPRK's threatening to unleash its nukes, which is rather silly considering that every square inch of North Korea has already been programmed into targeting computers.

The sheer tonnage of malevolent stupidity facing us from the Right is impressive, isn't it? Rep. John Boner - er, Boehner (R-Coppertone) suggests that a GOP majority in the House would concentrate solely on repealing the health care law and giving more money to the rich, while Rep. Bachmann (R-Totally Bugfuck Insane) suggests that all the House will do from 2011 to 2013 is issue subpoenas and investigate Obama.

So, time to rev up the Snark-o-Tron.
