Friday Cat Blogging With Photoshop
From Album3

Tigger visits Madison -- a sunny, but definitely wintry day. The fountain cover is the biggest giveaway.

We're going to have some Madison-like temps down here for the next few, and Madison is presumably in the REAL deep freeze. Brrr. Hope everyone stays warm. Over here, I'm letting the faucets drip -- hope that keep the pipes from freezing. Am also doing lots of laundry and dishes.

Wake me up when it's over.

Have a good weekend.

Update: Might have dodged a bullet. Even though I did laundry late (roughly midnight) and ran the dishwasher even later (set the timer to start around 2:30 am), woke up to no water at all in the kitchen. Ouch. Anyway, with some small space heaters I was able to generate some flow through the pipes.

I hate having to run water in the kitchen, because a really slow drip generates a leak in the cabinet under the sink. On the other hand, frozen pipes and massive plumbing bills are definitely the greater of evils...

Cold weather, especially down here, sucks.

Beats Old Fashioned Shaking People Down, I Guess

State Farm demands more profit. Next step: less service.

In other news, organized crime expressed jealousy.

Letting His Freak Flag Wingnut Fly
From Album3

You know, with all the "this is good news for Republicans" nonsense--and it IS nonsense, despite the conservative media lazily pushing it as fast as their Rethug masters can crank out press releases--something like this shouldn't necessarily be discounted as a reaction to the batshit insanity of card carrying GOP wingers.

Most people don't make following politics their pursuit, hobby, obsession...whatever you want to call it. And with their ideological purity (e.g., "proud right wing terrorist," etc.)...anyway, even with the media doing their heavy lifting, the general public might well be sick and tired of the lunatic rightwing fringe. Just saying.

The Paranoid Style in American the New Century
From Album3

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

Also, a link to the original.

Finally, let's not forget, wingers ran the show for most of the decade...if not the last generation--Clinton governed from the right, as did Carter.

Look Who's Hawking
From Album3

Grayson's suggestion is as good as any--Dick's using terror to hawk his screed.
